Putting the results in context

As any other method, models are subject to bias. In general, you should not have too much faith in the results of a single econometric model. Rather than relying on results from single models, research in forecasting recommends to look at combined models or, even better, a combined forecast that draws upon forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.

Trump can currently count on 50.1% of the major two-party vote according to an average of recent econometric models. Compared to numbers in the Time-for-change model Trump's econometric model average is 1.3 percentage points worse.
