Nevada: Trump and Clinton virtually tied in latest DeSart model


The DeSart model published an updated forecast of the election outcome. It currently forecasts a major vote share of 51.1% for Clinton, and 48.9% for Trump in Nevada. In comparison, on August 16, Clinton was predicted to end up with only 49.0% of the vote.

In Nevada, the popular vote is usually decided by a narrow margin. Therefore, the state is commonly regarded as a battleground state, which makes it particularly interesting from a forecasting perspective.

Putting the results in context

As any other method, models are subject to bias. In general, you should not be too confident the results of a single econometric model. Rather, one should check how a model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
