More weak numbers for Gordon Smith

For a guy whose spent the last three months trying to sprint toward the middle to buffet his appeal, Gordon Smith is looking awfully anemic.

Granted we're still a ways out, but the left has barely begun to wind up against Smith. Even Novick is just underway.

Smith's people cannot be happy with his polling numbers. He has huge name recognition and a lot of cash, but he's already having to start spending money campaigning. Jon Issacs spoke astutely to this on Blue Oregon just last week.

Smith is clearly a candidate in a sweat.
