    Nate is fantastic.   In 2014, 2016, etc, the Right might (probably will) try to game the system more (beyond Rasmussen's bull), maybe creating a slew of new right-leaning polling companies to cook polling numbers... so that averages of all the polls will lean Right... in a case like that, Nate's model will factor that in, probably assigned almost no weight to the fly-by-night pollsters.
