Fair model: Trump with clear lead


The Fair model enters the econometric models component of the combined PollyVote forecast. The model currently forecasts a two-party vote share of 44.0% for Clinton, and 56.0% for Trump.

Putting the results in context

As a general rule, however, you should not have too much faith in the results of single models, since they sometimes contain large errors. Instead of relying on results from single models, the best practice is to use combined models or, even better, a combined forecast that uses different methods and data.

Results compared to other econometric models
