The DeSart model provided an updated forecast of the election result. The model currently predicts a major vote share of 35.5% for Clinton, and 64.5% for Trump in Kentucky. In comparison, on August 16, Clinton was predicted to win 64.5% of the vote.

Putting the results in context

In general, however, you should not have too much faith in the results of single models, as they can contain large errors. At the very least, one should check how a model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
