DeSart model: Trump with very clear lead in Arkansas

Putting the results in context

Individual models should be regarded with caution, because they can incorporate substantial biases. Rather than trusting the results from single models, you should look at combined models or, even better, a combined forecast that draws upon different methods and data.

Comparison to the combined PollyVote

The most recent PollyVote expects Trump to gain 56.7% of the two-party vote in Arkansas. PollyVote currently predicts Trump to gain 8.5 percentage points less compared to the results of the DeSart model.
