Putting the results in context

Individual econometric models should be regarded with caution, because they may include substantial biases. At the very least, one should check how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

Results vs. other econometric models

Looking at an average of Indiana econometric models, Trump's current two-party vote share is at 57.3%. This value is 41.7 percentage points lower than his respective numbers in the Rothschild model.

Comparison to the combined PollyVote
