Jerome model in Georgia: Trump is in the lead


The Jerome model provided an updated prediction of the election outcome. It currently forecasts a major vote share of 48.0% for Clinton, and 52.1% for Trump in Georgia. In comparison, on October 12 Trump was still predicted to obtain 52.4% of the vote.

Putting the results in context

As any other method, models are subject to bias. As a result, a good strategy is to not have too much confidence in the results of an individual econometric model. At least, one should check how a model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

Results compared to the combined PollyVote forecast
