Nevada: Dead heat between Trump and Clinton in latest Jerome model


The Jerome model published an updated forecast of the election result. It currently forecasts a major vote share of 51.5% for Clinton, and 48.5% for Trump in Nevada. In comparison, on August 16 Trump was still predicted to garner 0.0% of the vote.

Historically, Nevada has been a battleground state, in which neither the Republican Party nor the Democratic Party has had overwhelming support to clinch that state's electoral college votes. Hence, predictions in this state are of particular interest.

Putting the results in context

Single models often incorporate large biases, which is why they should be interpreted with caution. Rather, one should check how a model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
