The DeSart & Holbrook model published an updated prediction of the election outcome. The model currently forecasts a major vote share of 57.2% for Clinton, and 42.8% for Trump in Maine. In comparison, on October 12, Clinton was predicted to gain only 55.7% of the vote.

Putting the results in context

As a general rule, however, you should not have too much faith in the results of single models, since they sometimes incorporate large errors. At least, one should examine how a model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
