The DeSart & Holbrook model is part of the econometric models component of the combined PollyVote forecast. According to the model, Clinton will garner 52.2% of the two-party vote share in Florida, while Trump will win 47.8%. In comparison, on October 13, Clinton was predicted to gain only 52.0% of the vote.
Historically, Florida has been a battleground state, in which no single party has had overwhelming support to secure that state's electoral college votes. This is why predictions in this state are of particular importance.
Putting the results in context
Individual models often contain large errors, which is why they should be interpreted with caution. At the very least, one should examine how a model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
Results compared to the combined PollyVote forecast
