It's as much of an 'Internal poll' as PPP's non-comissioned polls are: not at all.  People just insist D-bias and call it 'might as well be an internal' to have an excuse to discredit it.

Oh I am not discrediting the poll at all. But the internals released/leaked are usually the outliers, hence t he -5 rule

I like that they exclude most of the junk polls like the Google ones, Reuters, etc. By contrast, 538's poll database is essentially unusable due to the fact that they have no standards whatsoever. But yeah, they clearly have their thumb on the scale a bit for the GOP.

I like 538's approach. They enter every poll but weight the score based on the pollster's past performance. So the newer fly by night polling shops don't impact the score much.
