The Issues and Leaders model released an updated prediction of the election result. According to the model, Clinton will receive 51.3% of the two-party vote share, while Trump will win 48.7%.
Putting the results in context
In general, however, a good strategy is to not have too much faith in the results of single index models, as they often contain large errors. Rather than trusting the results from single index models, forecasting research recommends to consult combined index models or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that uses forecasts from different methods, each of which uses different data.
Results compared to other index models
If we look at an average of index models, Clinton's current two-party vote share is at 53.4%. This value is 2.1 percentage points higher than respective numbers in the Issues and Leaders index model.
