Putting the results in context

In general, however, don't have too much faith in the results of single models, as they sometimes contain large errors. Instead of relying on results from single models, research in forecasting recommends to rely on combined models or, even better, a combined forecast that uses forecasts from different methods, each of which uses different data.

Comparison to other econometric models

If we look at an average of econometric models, Trump's two-party vote share is currently at 50.9%. In comparison to numbers in the Vox.Com model Trump's econometric model average is 0.1 percentage points worse.
