The DeSart & Holbrook model provided an updated prediction of the election result. According to the model, Clinton will collect 57.3% of the two-party vote share in Maine, while Trump will win 42.7%. In comparison, on October 20, Clinton was predicted to achieve only 57.2% of the vote.
Putting the results in context
Single models can include substantial biases, which is why they should be treated with caution. At the very least, one should check how a model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
