Trump and Clinton neck-and-neck in latest Time-for-change model

Putting the results in context

As a general rule, however, a good strategy is to not have too much faith in the results of single models, as they sometimes incorporate large errors. At the very least, one should check how a model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

Trump currently achieves 50.8% of the major two-party vote according to an average of recent econometric models. Relative to numbers in the Time-for-change model Trump's econometric model average is 0.6 percentage points worse.
