That's a good question. Midterms 2010, in a way, forshadowed that Obama would have a harder time in 2012 than he did in 2008. 

I would have one model with it and one without it, and then average the two or something. It will probably be something like that. 

I agree. I started doing the DEM rating with the new format. Only some 2016 pollsters added (national election analysed, no states).
Total Games are the number o polls analysed *10 (USA have 213 polls analysed). This is far from the final ranks for those pollsters, they will change when I add 2004 to 2016 states + 2004 to 2012 national polls for sure. I will concentrate all my efforts to add more polls, forecast prediction will be delayed 2/3 days.

2016 national pollsters by ranking


With my forecast adaptative model, 2016 election results are Trump 44.9% and Clinton 47.2%, not far from reality!

For 2020... with the same method,

Trump is updated to 42.9% (+0.1%) and Biden to 52.3% (+3.2%), advantage ups from 6.3 to 9.4.

My map updated only with Historical data (no time for now to do with the polls model, that is 1000x better), for now its very weak, but will improve when I add polls system.
