Putting the results in context

As a general rule, however, you should not have too much faith in the results of single models, as they often incorporate large errors. Instead of trusting the results from single models, forecasting research recommends to use combined models or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that includes different methods and data.

The Crosstab model compared with PollyVote's forecast

The latest PollyVote expects Clinton to gain 65.9% of the two-party vote in Massachusetts. The results of the Crosstab model for Clinton are thus 0.4 percentage points below the combined PollyVote in Massachusetts.
