Crosstab model in Rhode Island: Clinton is in the lead


The Crosstab model published an updated forecast of the election outcome. According to the model, Clinton will collect 58.7% of the two-party vote share in Rhode Island, while Trump will end up with 41.3%. In comparison, on October 31, Clinton was predicted to win only 58.2% of the vote.

Putting the results in context

In general, however, you should not have too much faith in the results of single models, because they may incorporate large errors. Instead of relying on results from single models, the recommended strategy look at combined models or, even better, a combined forecast that relies on forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.
