3. When Nate Silver did his analysis of pollsters

he found PPP polls had a slight GOP lean and Rasmussen a heavy GOP lean

Some of Nate's analysis in the first link is not displaying for me. So my comments are based upon my recollection of what Nate said about the two in that chart.

Rasmussen has always had a GOP lean. It's heavier until it gets close to the election (to help hide their tracks in my opinion because folks can only evaluate the final result). But my recollection was triggered by observing at a pollster given a D for Dem leaning that had slightly GOP leaning results. And a particular pollster I recall that happening to in Nate's report was PPP.
