West Virginia: DeSart model shows Trump in the lead

Putting the results in context

As any other method, models are subject to bias. Therefore, as a general rule, one should not rely too much on the results of an individual econometric model. Rather than trusting the results from single models, the recommended strategy rely on combined models or, even better, a combined forecast that uses different methods and data.

The latest PollyVote anticipates Trump to gain 61.8% of the two-party vote in West Virginia. The results of the DeSart model for Trump are thus 4.9 percentage points above the combined PollyVote in West Virginia.
