Putting the results in context

As any other method, econometric models are subject to bias. Therefore, as a general rule, don't have too much confidence in the results of a single econometric model. Instead of relying on results from single econometric models, you should rely on combined econometric models or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that includes forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.
