The DeSart & Holbrook model provided an updated forecast of the election result. The model currently forecasts a major vote share of 66.7% for Clinton, and 33.4% for Trump in Massachusetts.
Putting the results in context
Individual models may include substantial biases, and should be interpreted with caution. At the very least, one should examine how a model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
Comparison to other econometric models
Looking at an average of Massachusetts econometric models, Clinton's two-party vote share is currently at 0.0%. This value is 66.7 percentage points lower than her corresponding numbers in the DeSart & Holbrook model.
Results compared to the combined PollyVote prediction
The current PollyVote anticipates Clinton to gain 65.3% of the two-party vote in Massachusetts. The results of the DeSart & Holbrook model for Clinton are thus 1.4 percentage points above the combined PollyVote in Massachusetts. In comparison, a look at the PollyVote national prediction for Clinton shows that the actual results are 14.0 percentage points higher.
