The DeSart & Holbrook model released an updated prediction of the election result. According to the model, Clinton will collect 66.4% of the two-party vote share in Massachusetts, whereas Trump will win 33.7%.

Putting the results in context

In general, however, a good strategy is to not have too much faith in the results of single models, as they can incorporate large errors. Instead of relying on results from single models, the best practice scientific advice is to use combined models or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that uses forecasts from different methods, each of which uses different data.

The DeSart & Holbrook model in comparison with PollyVote's forecast

The current PollyVote foresees Clinton to gain 64.9% of the two-party vote in Massachusetts. The results of the DeSart & Holbrook model for Clinton are thus 1.5 percentage points above the combined PollyVote in Massachusetts.
