Putting the results in context

As any other method, models are subject to bias. As a result, one should not be too confident the results of an individual econometric model. Rather than relying on results from single models, the best practice scientific advice is to use combined models or, even better, the combined PollyVote forecast that relies on forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.

The most recent PollyVote predicts Clinton to gain 62.1% of the two-party vote in Rhode Island. The results of the Crosstab model for Clinton are thus 3.9 percentage points below the combined PollyVote in Rhode Island.
