Putting the results in context

As any other method, econometric models are subject to bias. In general, you should not focus too much on 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 in comparison to other econometric models

An average of recent econometric models in Rhode Island has Clinton at 61.9% of the two-party vote. This value is 0.2 percentage points lower than her respective numbers in the DeSart model.
