Virtual tie between Trump and Clinton in latest Big-issue index model


The Big-issue model provided an updated forecast of the election outcome. According to the model, Clinton will obtain 50.3% of the two-party vote share, while Trump will end up with 49.7%.

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 index models, as they often contain large errors. Rather, one should examine how a index model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
