The Issues and Leaders model enters the index models component of the combined PollyVote forecast. It currently predicts a two-party vote share of 51.3% for Clinton, and 48.7% for Trump.
Putting the results in context
Single index models often include large errors, which is why they should be interpreted with caution. Rather than relying on results from single index models, you should look at combined index models or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that includes forecasts from different methods, each of which includes different data.
Results in comparison to other index models
An average of recent index models has Clinton at 53.4% of the two-party vote. Relative to numbers in the Issues and Leaders index model Clinton's index model average is 2.1 percentage points higher.
