Putting the results in context

Individual models may contain large biases, which is why they should be treated with caution. Rather than trusting the results from single models, the evidence-based approach is to look at combined models or, even better, a combined forecast that incorporates forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.

Comparison to other econometric models

Clinton is currently at 50.0% of the two-party vote according to an average of recent econometric models. Relative to numbers in the Trial-heat model Clinton's econometric model average is 0.7 percentage points lower.

Results compared to the combined PollyVote prediction
