In today's update, Polly the parrot predicts that Clinton will end up with 52.9% of the national two-party vote. This leaves 47.1% for Trump. There is broad consensus among the six available component methods: Five predict a win for Clinton while one predicts that Trump will win.
According to the econometric models Trump is right now ahead by 50.4%.
Coming in closest to PollyVote's prediction are expert surveys with a vote share of 53.5% for Clinton. The prediction markets present the largest deviation from PollyVote's forecast and predict Clinton to have 56.6% of the vote.
The econometric models forecast of 49.7% for the candidate of the Democratic party is notably low in comparison to previous elections. In fact, this is the method's lowest forecast at that time in the campaign since 2004, when John Kerry ran against George W. Bush. At that time, econometric models predicted a vote share of 46.0% for John Kerry.
