The DeSart & Holbrook model is included in the econometric models component of the PollyVote. It currently predicts a two-party vote share of 53.3% for Clinton, and 46.7% for Trump in New Hampshire. In comparison, on October 13 Trump was still predicted to obtain 47.5% of the vote.

New Hampshire is traditionally a swing state, where Democrats and Republicans have often gained similar voter support. This is the reason why the election outcome in that state is considered critical in determining who will win the majority of electoral votes.

Putting the results in context

As a general rule, however, don't have too much faith in the results of single models, as they can contain large errors. Rather, one should examine how a model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
