Dead heat between Trump and Clinton in latest Time-for-change model


The Time-for-change model released an updated forecast of the election outcome. It currently forecasts a two-party vote share of 48.6% for Clinton, and 51.4% for Trump. In comparison, on August 26, Clinton was predicted to gain 51.4% of the vote.

Putting the results in context

In general, however, a good strategy is to not have too much faith in the results of single models, since they can incorporate large errors. At least, one should examine how a model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

Comparison to other econometric models

Trump is currently at 50.8% of the major two-party vote in an average of recent econometric models. This value is 0.6 percentage points lower than respective numbers in the Time-for-change model.
