Internet darlings Nate Silver and Public Policy Polling are feuding publicly this week, over PPP's decision
not to release a polling result that they felt was probably inaccurate.
Nate Silver tweeted "VERY bad and unscientific practice for @ppppolls to suppress a polling result they didn't believe/didn't like." And then
the Twitter-based snipefest
began, with PPP calling Silver's allegations 'absurd' and accusing him of 'jealosy,' while Silver called PPP's actions 'totally indefensible' and accused them of having their 'finger on the scale.'
PPP responds to allegations that they copy the polling results of others with 15 things PPP got right going it alone.
