Putting the results in context

As any other method, econometric models are subject to bias. Thus, as a general rule, you should not have too much faith in the results of a single econometric model. Rather, one should check how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

Results compared to other econometric models

Looking at an average of Oregon econometric models, Clinton's current two-party vote share is at 54.1%. This value is 0.1 percentage points higher than her corresponding numbers in the DeSart model.
