DeSart & Holbrook model in Louisiana: Trump is in the lead

Putting the results in context

As any other method, models are subject to bias. Hence, you should not have too much faith in the results of a single econometric model. Instead of trusting the results from single models, one should consult combined models or, even better, a combined forecast that relies on different methods and data.

Results compared to the combined PollyVote prediction
