Putting the results in context

As any other method, models are subject to bias. Thus, as a general rule, one should not put too much trust in the results of an individual econometric model. Rather than relying on results from single models, the best practice is to use combined models or, even better, a combined forecast that incorporates forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.

The Crosstab model compared with PollyVote's forecast

The latest PollyVote forecasts Trump to gain 59.9% of the two-party vote in Nebraska. The results of the Crosstab model for Trump are thus 1.8 percentage points above the combined PollyVote in Nebraska.
