Putting the results in context

As any other method, econometric models are subject to bias. Hence, one should not be too confident the results of a single econometric model. Instead of trusting the results from single econometric models, you should look at combined econometric models or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that uses forecasts from different methods, each of which uses different data.
