The DeSart model provided an updated prediction of the election outcome. According to the model, Clinton will obtain 33.3% of the two-party vote share in West Virginia, while Trump will end up with 66.7%.
Putting the results in context
Single models often include substantial errors, which is why they should be treated with caution. Rather, one should check how a model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
Comparison to the combined PollyVote
The latest PollyVote anticipates Trump to gain 62.3% of the two-party vote in West Virginia. The results of the DeSart model for Trump are thus 4.4 percentage points above the combined PollyVote in West Virginia.
