DeSart & Holbrook model in Nevada: Clinton is in the lead


The DeSart & Holbrook model enters the econometric models component of the PollyVote forecast. It currently forecasts a major vote share of 52.4% for Clinton, and 47.6% for Trump in Nevada. In comparison, on October 19 Trump was still predicted to garner 47.8% of the vote.

Nevada is traditionally a purple state, where the candidates of both major parties have historically achieved similar levels of voter support. Hence, the election outcome here is viewed as important in determining who will win the majority of electoral votes.

Putting the results in context

In general, however, you should not have too much faith in the results of single models, because they can contain large errors. Rather, one should check how a model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
