Jerome model: Clinton in Idaho trails by a very clear margin

Putting the results in context

As a general rule, however, one should not have too much faith in the results of single econometric models, as they sometimes contain large errors. At least, one should check how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

Comparison to other econometric models

Trump is currently at 68.8% of the two-party vote in an average of recent econometric models in Idaho. Compared to his numbers in the Jerome model Trump's econometric model average is 0.9 percentage points higher.
