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 focus too much on the results of an individual econometric model. Rather than relying on results from single econometric models, research in forecasting recommends to use combined econometric models or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that draws upon different methods and data.

Comparison to other econometric models

Looking at an average of New Jersey econometric models, Clinton's two-party vote share is currently at 57.3%. Compared to her numbers in the Jerome model Clinton's econometric model average is 0.4 percentage points lower.

Comparison to the combined PollyVote

The results of the Jerome model for Clinton are thus 0.3 percentage points above the combined PollyVote, which at the moment predicts a value of 57.4% in New Jersey. In comparison, a look at the PollyVote national prediction for Clinton shows that the actual results are 5.0 percentage points higher.
