WOW: The Insanely Accurate, ‘Primary Model’, Is FORECASTING A Massive 2016 LANDSLIDE – Are They Right OR Ridiculous?

Published on August 28, 2016

In an elections cycle, polls are like gold. Everyone wants that one ‘bulletproof’ prediction. Has someone FOUND it?

In a match-up between the Republican primary winner and each of the Democratic contenders, Donald Trump is predicted to defeat Hillary Clinton by 52.5% to 47.5% of the two-party vote. He would defeat Bernie Sanders by 57.7% to 42.3%.

For the record, the PRIMARY MODEL, with slight modifications, has correctly predicted the winner of the popular vote in all five presidential elections since it was introduced in 1996. In recent elections the forecast has been issued as early as January of the election year.

Presidential elections going back as far as 1912 are used to estimate the weight of primary performance. It was in 1912 that presidential primaries were introduced. That year the candidate who won his party’s primary vote, Woodrow Wilson, went on to defeat the candidate who lost his party’s primary vote, William Howard Taft. As a rule, the candidate with the stronger primary performance wins against the candidate with the weaker primary performance. For elections from 1912 to 2012 the PRIMARY MODEL picks the winner, albeit retroactively, every time except in 1960.

The model predicts how other contenders would perform as well. Including Bernie, Rubio and Cruz.
