Putting the results in context
Individual models can include substantial errors, which is why they should be treated with caution. Rather than trusting the results from single models, research in forecasting recommends to rely on combined models or, even better, a combined forecast that includes forecasts from different methods, each of which includes different data.
The Jerome model compared with PollyVote's prediction
The latest PollyVote forecasts Trump to gain 55.6% of the two-party vote in Mississippi. PollyVote currently predicts Trump to gain 1.8 percentage points more compared to the results of the Jerome model.
