The Crosstab model provided an updated prediction of the election result. According to the model, Clinton will receive 33.1% of the two-party vote share in West Virginia, whereas Trump will win 66.9%. In comparison, on October 30, Clinton was predicted to win 33.5% of the vote.

Putting the results in context

In general, however, a good strategy is to not have too much faith in the results of single models, as they sometimes incorporate large errors. Instead of trusting the results from single models, the recommended strategy consult combined models or, even better, a combined forecast that uses forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.

Results compared to the combined PollyVote prediction
