Putting the results in context
Single econometric models often contain large biases, and should be interpreted with caution. Instead of relying on results from single econometric models, the best practice scientific advice is to use combined econometric models or, even better, a combined forecast that relies on forecasts from different methods, each of which relies on different data.
Results compared to other econometric models
Clinton currently achieves 48.8% of the major two-party vote in an average of recent econometric models. Relative to her numbers in the J model Clinton's econometric model average is 1.3 percentage points worse.
