The Holbrook & DeSart model is captured in the econometric models component of the combined PollyVote forecast. According to the model, Clinton will obtain 53.4% of the two-party vote share, while Trump will end up with 46.6%. In comparison, on October 29 Trump was still predicted to win 46.7% of the vote.
Putting the results in context
Single models often incorporate large biases, which is why they should be interpreted with caution. Instead of trusting the results from single models, the best practice is to use combined models or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that draws upon different methods and data.
