19. Also I think the 538 poll rankings are more about repeatability not absolute accuracy

For example a poll that is always left biased by 5% but always within 1% of reality once that bias is removed would be a very useful poll.

The opposite, a poll that is always left biased by 1% but only within 5% of reality once the biased is removed would be almost meaningless.

This is why Monmouth can be an A+ poll despite having a +1.3 blue bias.
