The DeSart model published an updated prediction of the election result. According to the model, Clinton will garner 91.9% of the two-party vote share in Washington, D.C., whereas Trump will win 8.1%.

Putting the results in context

As a general rule, however, a good strategy is to not have too much faith in the results of single models, since they often contain large errors. Instead of relying on results from single models, you should consult combined models or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that relies on forecasts from different methods, each of which relies on different data.
