The Issue-index model published an updated forecast of the election outcome. It currently forecasts a two-party vote share of 55.1% for Clinton and 44.9% for Trump.
Putting the results in context
Individual index models should be treated with caution, as they often contain large biases. Rather than relying on results from single index models, the recommended strategy look at combined index models or, even better, a combined forecast that includes forecasts from different methods, each of which includes different data.
Results vs. other index models
When compared to the average results of other index models Clinton performed better with 1.4 percentage points, while Trump did worse with 1.4 percentage points.
