The Fiscal model model provided an updated forecast of the election outcome. The model predicts that Clinton will garner 48.2% of the two-party vote share, while Trump will end up with 51.8%.
Putting the results in context
Single econometric models should be interpreted with caution, because they can incorporate large errors. Instead of trusting the results from single econometric models, the best practice scientific advice is to use combined econometric models or, even better, a combined forecast that uses forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.
