Putting the results in context
As any other method, index models are subject to bias. In general, one should not focus too much on the results of an individual index model. At least, one should examine how a index model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
Comparison to other index models
Clinton currently runs at 53.5% of the two-party vote according to an average of recent index models. Relative to numbers in the Big-issue index model Clinton's index model average is 2.3 percentage points higher.
