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.
Comparison to the combined PollyVote
The most recent PollyVote predicts Clinton to gain 53.9% of the two-party vote. PollyVote currently predicts Clinton to gain 0.7 percentage points more compared to the results of the Holbrook & DeSart model.
