Putting the results in context
As any other method, econometric models are subject to bias. In general, don't have too much faith in the results of an individual econometric model. At the very least, one should check how a econometric model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
Results compared to other econometric models
An average of recent econometric models in Oregon sees Clinton at 54.1% of the two-party vote. Compared to her numbers in the Rothschild model Clinton's econometric model average is 40.9 percentage points worse.
