Putting the results in context

As a general rule, however, you should not have too much faith in the results of single models, since they often incorporate large errors. Rather than trusting the results from single models, forecasting research recommends to look at combined models or, even better, a combined forecast that includes forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.

Comparison to other econometric models

Clinton currently achieves 49.6% of the two-party vote according to an average of recent econometric models. In comparison to numbers in the Leading indicators model Clinton's econometric model average is 2.4 percentage points lower.

Comparison to the combined PollyVote

The current PollyVote expects Clinton to gain 52.5% of the two-party vote. The results of the Leading indicators model for Clinton are thus 0.5 percentage points below the combined PollyVote.
