Putting the results in context

As any other method, models are subject to bias. Therefore, as a general rule, one should not focus too much on the results of an individual econometric model. Instead of relying on results from single models, forecasting research recommends to rely on combined models or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that uses forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.
