Putting the results in context

In general, however, you should not have too much faith in the results of single econometric models, because they can incorporate large errors. Instead of trusting the results from single econometric models, forecasting research recommends to look at combined econometric models or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that draws upon forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.
