Yes, as reality closes in, the Goode 5% has shrunk.
Yes, I agree that voters would be backing off of Goode. More importantly for me, though, is that they include him in their numbers. He’s on the ballot, so not including him would make me wonder what the real numbers were.
IOW, they handled this honestly, so probably the rest of it, too.

Moreover, notice this:
The cross-tabs from McLaughlin say Goode draws one percent of the Dems, one percent of the indies and zero percent of the GOPers!
