COLUMBIA, KY - A group of Lindsey Wilson College students used Thursday evening to predict the outcome of the upcoming presidential election.
The students, who are members of the LWC John B. Begley Scholars Program, were assigned to predict the electoral vote for 24 states. Each student, most of who are voting in their first presidential election, was given one or two states to study and then predict which way they thought the state would swing on Nov. 8.
"With the election predicted to be so close, we wanted the project to focus on other states that could also have an impact on the outcome," said LWC President William T. Luckey Jr., who directed the students' project. "After all, the Electoral College only has a million possible outcomes, so we thought it was important to broaden our study beyond the swing states."
The students based their forecasts on newspaper editorials, polling data and historical results. The result of their study - the students predict 302-236 win for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
