The Big-issue model is part of the index models component of the combined PollyVote forecast. It currently forecasts a major vote share of 51.2% for Clinton, and 48.8% for Trump.
Putting the results in context
Single index models should be regarded with caution, because they may include substantial biases. Rather than relying on results from single index models, research in forecasting recommends to consult combined index models or, even better, a combined forecast that uses different methods and data.
