Bit of both, I imagine. They (and some of their listeners) finally realized that their statistical survey methods were not actually strong enough to produce definitive answers about who's ahead, so that's honest. And, as you point out elsewhere, they love to focus on "process" (yeah, I watch West Wing) stories instead of issue stories, because they are both more exciting (not really, but they think so) and safer (less likelihood of partisans coming knocking, or of coming to a conclusion which might threaten their 'objectivity').
