    Nate has always been open with his egalitarian inclusion of polls, the argument being that a right wing house effect in some polls cancels out a left wing house effect in others.
    I thought the argument was more that as long as his model can estimate the house effects, the polls don't need to be balanced by others with equal-and-opposite house effects.

    But as you point out, that may not work when the pollster doesn't have much history.

    Election protection: there's an app for that!
