The model retroactively has the right predictions. They haven't predicted anything before any election up to this point. In other words, the model wasn't here in 1980, or 84, or 88, or 92 or anything up to this point. But when the model was derived, they then retroactively took state economic data available in each year and plugged it into the formula and it came out right.
We will see if they are right with this call. It is certainly an aggressive call.
