I wondered yesterday. Now we have some data. Skepticism about the pollster's record here. More here:

Only 8 percent feel "somewhat negative" and the remainder, a jaw-dropping 60 percent, feel "very negative" about Miller as a candidate.

Murkowski is still ahead, however, even as a write-in, and may emerge as one of the most remarkable winners Tuesday night. But look at how far McAdams has come in the last month: he has doubled his support, and one wonders whether undecideds are really likely to back the very familiar Murkowski. Also recall that this poll came before the latest revelations about Miller's admission to lies. Either way: a big black eye for Palin in her backyard.
