New Vox.Com model: Clinton and Trump neck-and-neck
The Vox.Com model released an updated prediction of the election result. It currently predicts a major vote share of 49.1% for Clinton, and 50.9% 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, because they often incorporate large errors. At the very least, one should examine how a model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
