DeSart & Holbrook model: Clinton tied with Trump in North Carolina


The DeSart & Holbrook model released an updated prediction of the election result. The model forecasts that Clinton and Trump will each collect 50% of the two-party vote. In comparison, on October 14, Clinton was predicted to end up with only 49.9% of the vote.

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 can incorporate large errors. Instead of relying on results from single models, the best practice is to look at combined models or, even better, a combined forecast that draws upon different methods and data.
