Putting the results in context
As any other method, models are subject to bias. Thus, as a general rule, don't be overly confident the results of a single econometric model. Rather, one should examine how a model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
Comparison to the combined PollyVote
The most recent PollyVote foresees Clinton to gain 56.8% of the two-party vote in Washington. PollyVote currently predicts Clinton to gain 1.3 percentage points more compared to the results of the DeSart model.
