Putting the results in context

Single models should be regarded with caution, since they often incorporate substantial errors. Instead of 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 forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.

Results compared to other econometric models

Clinton is currently at 49.9% of the two-party vote according to an average of recent econometric models. In comparison to numbers in the 538 (polls-plus) model Clinton's econometric model average is 2 percentage points lower.

Comparison to the combined PollyVote

The latest PollyVote expects Clinton to gain 52.6% of the two-party vote. The results of the 538 (polls-plus) model for Clinton are thus 0.7 percentage points below the combined PollyVote.
