Given all this uncertainty, it is tempting to conclude that it is too early for predictions, and call the election a virtual toss-up. That is the view of bettors, who currently make Mr Biden a bare 55-45 favourite. Yet a hard look at the data and at history suggests that this is too generous to Mr Trump. The Economist’s first-ever statistical forecast of an American presidential race, which we launch this week and will update every day until the election, gives Mr Biden an 82% chance of victory.

My question is:
"and call the election a virtual toss-up.", is it a compound structure to "to conclude", or a parenthesis to " it is too early for predictions"?
- it is tempting to conclude .. , and it is tempting to call ..?
- it is too early for prediction, and it is too early to call..?
