Putting the results in context

As a general rule, however, don't have too much faith in the results of single models, as they can incorporate large errors. Rather than relying on results from single models, the best practice is to rely on combined models or, even better, a combined forecast that incorporates forecasts from different methods, each of which incorporates different data.

Comparison to other econometric models

Looking at an average of econometric models, Trump's two-party vote share is currently at 50.9%. This value is 0.6 percentage points lower than corresponding numbers in the Time-for-change model.
