What is UP with Nate Silver these days? [View all]

If you haven't seen FiveThirtyEight lately:

Something is definitely wrong here. Romney's debate bounce ended a few days ago, and Obama is still dropping?!? I've come to notice that Nate's been giving more credence to right-wing pollsters lately as well, so it makes me wonder just how much it's messing with the results. I know he's been heckled by far-right nutjobs in the past, but he's gotta stop giving these obviously biased pollsters any credence because it could start demoralizing people and we don't need that right now. We already saw what happened when the media starting pushing the "Romney won the debate" narrative.

We may need to start flooding his e-mail pointing out what's been happening and why it's screwing up the models, so hopefully, he can get around to fixing the problem.
