Putting the results in context
Single econometric models should be interpreted with caution, since they often incorporate large errors. At the very least, one should examine how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
Results compared to other econometric models
An average of recent econometric models in Montana has Trump at 57.3% of the two-party vote. Compared to his numbers in the Rothschild model Trump's econometric model average is 41.7 percentage points worse.
