The DeSart & Holbrook model provided an updated prediction of the election result. According to the model, Clinton will collect 57.8% of the two-party vote share in Washington, while Trump will win 42.2%. In comparison, on October 22, Clinton was predicted to end up with 58.1% of the vote.
Putting the results in context
As a general rule, however, a good strategy is to not have too much faith in the results of single models, since they may contain large errors. Rather than relying on results from single models, the recommended strategy rely on combined models or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that uses different methods and data.
Comparison to the combined PollyVote
The current PollyVote anticipates Clinton to gain 58.2% of the two-party vote in Washington. PollyVote currently predicts Clinton to gain 0.4 percentage points more compared to the results of the DeSart & Holbrook model.
