Bio-index model: Clinton with clear lead
The Bio-index model is part of the index models component of the combined PollyVote. According to the model, Clinton will collect 58.8% of the two-party vote share, while Trump will win 41.2%.
Putting the results in context
Single index models can incorporate substantial errors, which is why they should be treated with caution. At the very least, one should examine how a index model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
Comparison to other index models
Clinton currently runs at 53.7% of the major two-party vote according to an average of recent index models. This value is 5.1 percentage points lower than corresponding numbers in the Bio-index index model.
