The DeSart & Holbrook model enters the econometric models component of the PollyVote forecast. The model currently predicts a major vote share of 43.0% for Clinton, and 57.0% for Trump in Mississippi.
Putting the results in context
As any other method, models are subject to bias. Hence, a good strategy is to not have too much faith in the results of an individual econometric model. At the very least, one should examine how a model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
The DeSart & Holbrook model compared with PollyVote's prediction
The most recent PollyVote foresees Trump to gain 55.5% of the two-party vote in Mississippi. PollyVote currently predicts Trump to gain 1.5 percentage points less compared to the results of the DeSart & Holbrook model.
