Putting the results in context

As any other method, models are subject to bias. Therefore, as a general rule, a good strategy is to not be overly confident the results of a single econometric model. Instead of trusting the results from single models, forecasting research recommends to use combined models or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that draws upon different methods and data.
