The 538 (polls-plus) model provided an updated forecast of the election outcome. The model currently forecasts a major vote share of 51.1% for Clinton, and 48.9% for Trump. In comparison, on September 22, Clinton was predicted to win only 50.9% of the vote.
Putting the results in context
In general, however, don't have too much faith in the results of single models, because they often incorporate large errors. Rather than relying on results from single models, the best practice scientific advice is to look at combined models or, even better, a combined forecast that includes different methods and data.
Results in comparison to other econometric models
An average of recent econometric models sees Clinton at 49.7% of the two-party vote. This value is 1.4 percentage points lower than respective numbers in the 538 (polls-plus) model.
Results compared to the combined PollyVote forecast
The latest PollyVote foresees Clinton to gain 52.5% of the two-party vote. The results of the 538 (polls-plus) model for Clinton are thus 1.4 percentage points below the combined PollyVote.
