The DeSart model released an updated prediction of the election result. According to the model, Clinton will garner 46.4% of the two-party vote share in North Carolina, whereas Trump will end up with 53.6%. In comparison, on August 16, Clinton was predicted to gain 53.6% of the vote.
Putting the results in context
As any other method, models are subject to bias. In general, don't put too much trust in the results of an individual econometric model. Rather, one should examine how a model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
The DeSart model in comparison with PollyVote's prediction
The latest PollyVote anticipates Trump to gain 50.0% of the two-party vote in North Carolina. The results of the DeSart model for Trump are thus 3.6 percentage points above the combined PollyVote in North Carolina.
