Putting the results in context

In general, however, a good strategy is to not have too much faith in the results of single models, as they can contain large errors. Rather than relying on results from single models, one should consult combined models or, even better, a combined forecast that draws upon forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.

Results compared to other econometric models

An average of recent econometric models sees Trump at 50.8% of the two-party vote. This value is 1.7 percentage points lower than respective numbers in the Primary model.
