Putting the results in context
As any other method, models are subject to bias. In general, one should not put too much trust in the results of an individual econometric model. At least, one should examine how a model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
Comparison to other econometric models
Clinton can currently count on 49.2% of the two-party vote in an average of recent econometric models. Compared to numbers in the Leading indicators model Clinton's econometric model average is 2.8 percentage points lower.
