The 538 (polls-plus) model is captured in the econometric models component of the PollyVote. According to the model, Clinton will garner 52.5% of the two-party vote share, whereas Trump will win 47.5%. In comparison, on October 28 Trump was predicted to garner 47.0% of the vote.
Putting the results in context
As any other method, models are subject to bias. Hence, a good strategy is to not put too much trust in the results of an individual econometric model. At least, one should check how a model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
Comparison to other econometric models
Clinton currently runs at 50.4% of the two-party vote according to an average of recent econometric models. In comparison to numbers in the 538 (polls-plus) model Clinton's econometric model average is 2.1 percentage points lower.
Comparison to the combined PollyVote
The current PollyVote predicts Clinton to gain 53.6% of the two-party vote. The results of the 538 (polls-plus) model for Clinton are thus 1.1 percentage points below the combined PollyVote.
