The Issues and Leaders model is included in the index models component of the PollyVote. The model currently predicts a two-party vote share of 52.0% for Clinton, and 48.0% for Trump.
Putting the results in context
As any other method, index models are subject to bias. As a result, don't focus too much on the results of a single index model. Rather than trusting the results from single index models, we recommend to consult combined index models or, even better, a combined forecast that includes forecasts from different methods, each of which includes different data.
Comparison to other index models
Looking at an average of index models, Clinton's two-party vote share is currently at 53.4%. Relative to numbers in the Issues and Leaders index model Clinton's index model average is 1.4 percentage points higher.
