The Crosstab model provided an updated forecast of the election outcome. According to the model, Clinton will garner 45.0% of the two-party vote share in Texas, whereas Trump will end up with 55.0%. In comparison, on November 3 Trump was predicted to achieve 54.1% of the vote.
Putting the results in context
Individual models should be interpreted with caution, because they may contain large biases. Rather than relying on results from single models, the evidence-based approach is to use combined models or, even better, a combined forecast that uses forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.
Results compared to other econometric models
An average of recent econometric models in Texas sees Trump at 0.0% of the two-party vote. This value is 55 percentage points lower than his corresponding numbers in the Crosstab model.
