Putting the results in context

As any other method, models are subject to bias. As a result, a good strategy is to not rely too much on the results of a single econometric model. Rather than trusting the results from single models, the best practice scientific advice is to look at combined models or, even better, a combined forecast that uses different methods and data.

Results in comparison to other econometric models

Looking at an average of econometric models, Clinton's two-party vote share is currently at 49.8%. In comparison to numbers in the Trial-heat model Clinton's econometric model average is 2.3 percentage points lower.
