  •  More accurately, Nate gave PPP a Democratic bias (2+ / 0-)

    early on, and penalized the poll results slightly for a (D) house effect.  Then, when PPP showed a slightly stronger Romney poll surge than other pollsters were showing Nate gave PPP a bit of a Romney bias, and penalized slightly on the basis of a Republican house effect.  Then more recently Nate went again the other way and detected a stronger D house effect in PPP polling, and made a point of that.    

    It is interesting how Nate's model shows these effects and adjusts for them, regardless of whether the pollster is actually known to be more aligned with one party's philosophy or the other.
