I usually trust Quinnipiac, but this looks quite off. Especially with this:

"Independent voters are split with 43 percent for Gillespie, 41 percent for Warner and 9 percent for Sarvis."

And this, which seems to contradict the fairly close horse race finding:

"Warner has strong leads on character traits:
Voters say 57 - 26 percent he is honest and trustworthy, compared to 39 - 19 percent for Gillespie;
Warner cares about their needs and problems, voters say 55 - 35 percent, compared to 39 - 29 percent for Gillespie;
Warner has strong leadership qualities, voters say 68 - 22 percent, compared to 41 - 21 percent for Gillespie."

This confirms that Quinnipiac is producing outliers this cycle. You can pretty much dismiss their polling in Iowa and Colorado now, which already looked very off.

The only other pollsters taking this race are Roanake, and they're terrible. I want to see a legit pollster tackle this before we call this an outlier.

It seems that Quinnipiac's likely voters screen is extremely tight, hence the decidedly pro-Republican results.

Quinnipiac has quite the R-bias this year.

I'll believe this as much as I believe that Gardner is up 8 and Ernst is up 6. Take 10 points off. That's probably more correct. It would make Iowa D+2 in turnout and Colorado R+2. Which is about where they are in terms of demographics.

I'd take this poll with a grain of salt, but it would be great if Gillespie actually is closing the gap with Warner like Quinnipiac is indicating. Hopefully PPP will poll this race.

I think Quinnipiac's LV model this cycle is way too strict. I mean, Warner leading by only 1 more point than Gardner, really?
