Issue-index model: Clinton is in the lead


The Issue-index model released an updated forecast of the election result. According to the model, Clinton will obtain 56.2% of the two-party vote share, while Trump will win 43.8%. In comparison, on October 1, Clinton was predicted to win only 55.8% of the vote.

Putting the results in context

As any other method, index models are subject to bias. Therefore, as a general rule, you should not focus too much on the results of a single index model. At least, one should examine how a index model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

Comparison to other index models

An average of recent index models sees Clinton at 53.5% of the two-party vote. Relative to numbers in the Issue-index index model Clinton's index model average is 2.7 percentage points lower.
