The DeSart & Holbrook model released an updated forecast of the election result. The model currently forecasts a major vote share of 39.1% for Clinton, and 60.9% for Trump in Alabama. In comparison, on October 12, Clinton was predicted to gain only 35.8% of the vote.
Putting the results in context
Individual models may include substantial biases, which is why they should be treated with caution. Rather, one should check how a model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
