The Lockerbie model provided an updated prediction of the election outcome. It currently forecasts a major vote share of 50.4% for Clinton, and 49.6% for Trump.
Putting the results in context
Individual models may include substantial errors, and should be interpreted with caution. Rather than trusting the results from single models, the evidence-based approach is to consult combined models or, even better, a combined forecast that incorporates different methods and data.
Comparison to other econometric models
An average of recent econometric models has Clinton at 49.2% of the two-party vote. Clinton currently achieves 49.2% of the major two-party vote in an average of recent econometric models. This value is 1.3 percentage points lower than corresponding numbers in the Lockerbie model.
Results compared to the combined PollyVote prediction
