Rhode Island: Crosstab model shows Clinton in the lead


The Crosstab model released an updated prediction of the election result. According to the model, Clinton will achieve 58.6% of the two-party vote share in Rhode Island, while Trump will end up with 41.4%. In comparison, on October 27 Trump was still predicted to garner 41.5% of the vote.

Putting the results in context

Single models should be treated with caution, as they can incorporate large errors. Instead of trusting the results from single models, the evidence-based approach is to rely on combined models or, even better, a combined forecast that includes different methods and data.
