Big-issue model shows Clinton in the lead


The Big-issue model is included in the index models component of the combined PollyVote forecast. The model currently predicts a two-party vote share of 51.0% for Clinton, and 49.0% for Trump.

Putting the results in context

As any other method, index models are subject to bias. Thus, as a general rule, you should not be overly confident the results of a single index model. Rather than trusting the results from single index models, the best practice scientific advice is to look at combined index models or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that relies on forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.
