Putting the results in context

As any other method, econometric models are subject to bias. Thus, as a general rule, a good strategy is to not have too much faith in the results of an individual econometric model. Instead of trusting the results from single econometric models, you should use combined econometric models or, even better, a combined forecast that draws upon forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.

Results in comparison to other econometric models

Looking at an average of Tennessee econometric models, Trump's current two-party vote share is at 57.8%. In comparison to his numbers in the Jerome model Trump's econometric model average is 5.6 percentage points higher.
