The 538 (polls-plus) model enters the econometric models component of the combined PollyVote forecast. It currently predicts a major vote share of 52.0% for Clinton, and 48.1% for Trump.

Putting the results in context

Individual models may include large biases, which is why they should be interpreted with caution. Rather than relying on results from single models, the evidence-based approach is to consult combined models or, even better, a combined forecast that uses different methods and data.
