McCollum's numbers upside-down in own poll

Politico obtained an interesting memo about Bill McCollum's latest internal poll. The upshot: He's down by six points, 31 percent to Rick Scott's 37 percent. A full 32 percent are undecided. That compares to an earlier McCollum poll that showed the two candidates tied at 35 percent.

McCollum is also upside down on favorability numbers: 36 percent like him compared with 39 percent who don't.

His pollster, John McLaughlin, credits the bad numbers to Scott's barrage of TV ads. He says that once McCollum (and his supporters) goes back on the air, he can persuade the large pool of undecideds to come into his camp.
