Putting the results in context

As a general rule, however, one should not have too much faith in the results of single econometric models, because they can incorporate large errors. Rather, one should examine how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

Comparison to other econometric models

Looking at an average of Delaware econometric models, Clinton's two-party vote share is currently at 55.4%. This value is 1.9 percentage points higher than her corresponding numbers in the Jerome model.
