Fiscal model model: Trump is in the lead
The Fiscal model model provided an updated forecast of the election outcome. The model currently predicts a two-party vote share of 48.2% for Clinton, and 51.8% for Trump.
Putting the results in context
In general, however, you should not have too much faith in the results of single models, because they can incorporate large errors. At the very least, one should check how a model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
