Putting the results in context

As any other method, models are subject to bias. Thus, as a general rule, one should not have too much faith in the results of a single econometric model. Rather, one should examine how a model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

Comparison to other econometric models

Looking at an average of econometric models, Clinton's two-party vote share is currently at 49.6%. This value is 1.5 percentage points lower than corresponding numbers in the Lewis-Beck & Tien model.
