    Expect polls to scramble to be more accurate.
    He became a national story and no one will miss the meaning nor importance of the way he weighs polls.
    Rass may become irrelevant.

    •  On a side note.. (1+ / 0-)

      Nate may not be as accurate next time around.
      The individual polls will be changing their criteria, thereby changing their accuracy/bias. Which will make his formula obsolete.

    •  Yeah...he just drank RCP's milkshake (0+ / 0-)

      Basically every news organization will follow nate..

      and NYT pulled a coup...
