Putting the results in context

As a general rule, however, you should not have too much faith in the results of single models, because they can incorporate large errors. Rather than trusting the results from single models, the recommended strategy use 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

An average of recent econometric models in Arkansas sees Trump at 0.0% of the two-party vote. This value is 61.8 percentage points lower than his respective numbers in the Crosstab model.
