    does make every attempt to work the refs. They do everything they can to control the narrative and make things fuzzy when they're not going their way.
       I don't know how successful they've been with Nate Silver as far as direct influence through "working the ref" is concerned, but there does now to be some by way of tainted polls like Gravis.
       What I noticed about 538 is the tendency to err on the side of the conservatives, almost like a Dad being the ref at his kid's soccer game, and wanting to bend over backwards to not show bias.
      I understand that tendency, but to me it's best to strive to not err at all.
