The Big-issue model enters the index models component of the combined PollyVote forecast. The model currently predicts a two-party vote share of 51.7% for Clinton, and 48.3% for Trump.
Putting the results in context
Individual index models should be treated with caution, as they can contain large errors. Instead of relying on results from single index models, forecasting research recommends to rely on combined index models or, even better, a combined forecast that relies on different methods and data.
Comparison to other index models
An average of recent index models has Clinton at 53.7% of the two-party vote. This value is 2 percentage points higher than corresponding numbers in the Big-issue index model.
