Putting the results in context
Single models may contain substantial errors, and should be interpreted with caution. 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 different methods and data.

If we look at an average of econometric models, Trump's two-party vote share is currently at 50.8%. Compared to numbers in the Vox.Com model Trump's econometric model average is 0.1 percentage points lower.
Results compared to the combined PollyVote prediction
