Putting the results in context

Single index models should be treated with caution, since they often include substantial errors. Rather than trusting the results from single index models, the best practice is to use combined index models or, even better, a combined forecast that draws upon forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.

Results compared to other index models

Clinton currently achieves 53.6% of the two-party vote in an average of recent index models. This value is 1.6 percentage points higher than corresponding numbers in the Issues and Leaders index model.
