The DeSart & Holbrook model enters the econometric models component of the combined PollyVote forecast. According to the model, Clinton will collect 61.4% of the two-party vote share in Maryland, whereas Trump will end up with 38.6%.
Putting the results in context
As any other method, models are subject to bias. In general, a good strategy is to not be too confident the results of a single econometric model. Rather than trusting the results from single models, the best practice is to look at combined models or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that incorporates forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.
