The Crosstab model provided an updated forecast of the election outcome. According to the model, Clinton will collect 44.4% of the two-party vote share in Missouri, whereas Trump will win 55.6%. In comparison, on November 4 Trump was predicted to garner 55.5% of the vote.
Putting the results in context
As any other method, models are subject to bias. Hence, one should not rely too much on the results of an individual econometric model. Rather than relying on results from single models, the best practice is to use combined models or, even better, a combined forecast that incorporates different methods and data.
Results compared to other econometric models
Trump currently runs at 0.0% of the major two-party vote according to an average of recent econometric models in Missouri. Relative to his numbers in the Crosstab model Trump's econometric model average is 55.6 percentage points lower.
