They've only rated two of their polls, but they gave them a C+.

Given 538's track record perhaps they should be assessing 538, not the other way around.
 

 
 

538's number crunching is the creme de la creme of poll analysis.

I agree, though, that their punditry is mediocre.


Yes, 538 came closer to predicting a Trump victory than nearly anyone else (IIRC, their chance of a Trump victory was around 30% on election day, when nearly all the other prognosticators had the chance at less than 5%). But again, Nate's model is only as good as the polls that feed into it.
