There were some interesting profiles of Nate's methods around the time of the last election, but I can't put my hand to the links right now. Short version as I understand it: Nate back analyzed individual pollster results against election results and used this to weight party bias of polls on state-by-state basis. He's not the only one doing this kind of analysis, just the most famous and, I think, the most accurate.

Of technical note, his highly regarded sports stats analysis was apparently done in a huge, unwieldy XLS. There was much gnashing of teeth and pulling of hair when he sold that business and other people had to figure out how it worked.
