Putting the results in context

As any other method, models are subject to bias. In general, one should not focus too much on the results of an individual econometric model. At the very least, one should examine how a model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.

Comparison to other econometric models

Clinton can currently count on 50.0% of the two-party vote according to an average of recent econometric models. This value is 3.2 percentage points lower than respective numbers in the Holbrook & DeSart model.
