Putting the results in context

As any other method, econometric models are subject to bias. Therefore, as a general rule, one should not have too much faith in the results of a single econometric model. At the very least, one should examine how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

An average of recent econometric models sees Trump at 51.1% of the two-party vote. Compared to his numbers in the Time-for-change model Trump's econometric model average is 0.2 percentage points lower.
