Issue-index model shows Clinton in the lead


The Issue-index model is captured in the index models component of the PollyVote. It currently predicts a major vote share of 55.1% for Clinton, and 44.9% for Trump.

Putting the results in context

Single index models can contain large errors, which is why they should be treated with caution. Instead of relying on results from single index models, forecasting research recommends to use combined index models or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that draws upon different methods and data.

Results in comparison to other index models

Looking at an average of index models, Clinton's two-party vote share is currently at 53.7%. This value is 1.4 percentage points lower than corresponding numbers in the Issue-index index model.
