The DeSart model is captured in the econometric models component of the combined PollyVote forecast. The model currently forecasts a two-party vote share of 50.4% for Clinton, and 49.6% for Trump in Colorado. In comparison, on August 16 Trump was still predicted to collect 0.0% of the vote.

In Colorado, the popular vote is often close. Therefore, the state is commonly referred to as a purple state, which makes it particularly interesting from a forecasting perspective.

Putting the results in context

As any other method, models are subject to bias. Thus, as a general rule, a good strategy is to not focus too much on the results of an individual econometric model. At least, one should check how a model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

Comparison to the combined PollyVote

The current PollyVote foresees Clinton to gain 56.5% of the two-party vote in Colorado. PollyVote currently predicts Clinton to gain 6.1 percentage points more compared to the results of the DeSart model.
