Skip to comments.CA Senate Race: Fiorina Up Big? (Hints Fiorina Rocketing FTW)

Can this be for real? From Carly Fiorina's Twitter feed:
@CarlyforCA Breaking news: Fiorina 46%, Campbell 23%, DeVore 14% according to new Survey USA poll. Proof that hard work pays off!
This, I'm told by the Fiorina campaign, was just reported on television on L.A. The last SurveyUSA poll showed Fiorina trailing Campbell 35% to 24%, with DeVore in third at 15%. So, if true, this new poll would represent a huge swing--such a huge swing that I'm curious to see the actual poll.
Critical time with voters filling out absentee ballots, Fiorina is possibly having a massive surge that will propel her to a victory in the primary.
It's time to abort the political future of Campbell and Boxer.
I think most of us would rather see DeVore. However, Campbell’s decline is welcome.
Like we need another Susan Collins or Olympia Snow.... this time its iCarly.
Too bad Fiorina is a RINO!
Bookmark. Will bring SPF 300 and welder’s glasses to the re-read.
I feel the same way that you do, why are California republicans rejecting the true conservative in the race?
I hope this Fiorina is a pleasant surprise like Christie in NJ and not a predictable failure like Scott Brown.
Yes. My priorities:
Where the flaming incompetent, US-worker hating Carly FioRINO falls in there, I'm not sure.
For what it’s worth (since I live in Missouri), I would rather see Fiorina than Campbell. I know DeVore is the FR Fan Favorite but right now it’s looking like a Fiorina/Campbell race.
Campbell must be defeated at all costs.
So will it be Boxer or Boxer-lite come November.
Good news and thanks. Ignore the nastiness, Fiorina is the one that can win, as Sarah Palin knows as well.
Campbell’s decline is good news.
If DeVore cannot win (I said IF), it needs to be Fiorina, not Campbell.
Then Boxer needs to be beaten like a drum...
Fiorina is half to two-thirds of a loaf, while Campbell would have been a quarter to a third of a loaf. Chuck unfortunately wouldn’t have made it out of the kitchen.
So once again Palin’s hard work pays off—putting as much conservative bread on the table as could be hoped for statewide in CA.
When, exactly, did we decide that women were better suited to run our country than men?
Obviously Carly Fiorina is not as conservative as we all would prefer, but she is (i) pro-life, (ii) pro-gun and (iii) pro-marriage, which is quite refreshing coming from a California Republican Senate candidate. Carly Fiorina would become the first pro-life U.S. Senator from California since Roe v. Wade, and probably the most conservative U.S. Senator from California in over a half century.
So, no, Carly Fiorina is no Susan Collins or Olympia Snowe: she’s more of a Liddy Dole. Now, we had every right to complain about Liddy Dole’s voting record given that she represented NC, but we would have been extatic to have a Senator from CA vote like Liddy Dole.
The RINO in the race is Tom Campbell; he is in favor of same-sex marriage and opposed to the ban on partial-birth abortion, and has a long record of opposition to the State of Israel and support for Islamist extremists. We need to defeat Tom Campbell in the primary. If conservatives split their votes between Fiorina and Chuck DeVore it will allow Campbell to win. Given that DeVore has never come close to the 33% minimum he would need to win the primary, I think that we all need to support Carly Fiorina.
I watched the DeVore video on FR (finally). Seems like a solid guy, and he would have my vote. If he is still sitting in the teens by election day, I would go Fiorini just to beat Campbell. If this happens, Chuck hopefully can propel himself into statewide politics from his experience here.
I don’t think she will be Boxer-lite.
I think she will be a sight better than that.
JMO from all sources of info combined.
Hope I’m right.
God help us.
Da Poll Bee Real:
CA Republicans Whitman & Fiorina Surge; Air Goes Out of Poizner Statehouse Balloon; Campbell’s Train to DC Stalls: California’s Republican primary contests for Governor and US Senator have sea-sawed, according to new SurveyUSA polling conducted for KABC-TV Los Angeles, KPIX-TV San Francisco, KGTV-TV San Diego, and KFSN-TV Fresno.
In the Republican primary for Governor, Meg Whitman has re-captured momentum she appeared to lose earlier this month, and today leads Steve Poizner 2:1, with 1 in 6 likely voters having already cast a ballot. SurveyUSA’s tracking graphs display a pronounced bow-tie, exemplified by, but not limited to, male voters, where Whitman went from 51% support on 04/22/10 to 37% support on 05/10/10 to 55% support today 05/24/10. Poizner’s angle of support is inverted, from 28% on 04/22/10 to 41% on 05/10/10 to 28% today 05/24/10. Almost identical sea-sawing is evident among gun owners and among likely voters in greater Los Angeles.
In the Republican primary for US Senator, support for former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is up sharply in the past 2 weeks, from 24% on 05/10/10 to 46% today 05/24/10. Fiorina’s support has more than doubled among women, seniors, Hispanics, the less educated, and in the Inland Empire. During these 2 weeks, Former Congressman Tom Campbell’s support dropped 12 points, from 35% on 05/10/10 to 23% today 05/24/10.
In the Republican primary for CA Attorney General, Los Angeles County DA Steve Cooley and State Senator Tom Harman today tie, with 29% voting Cooley, 28% Harman. But: another 29% of likely GOP Primary voters are undecided, which means any outcome is possible. Compared to 2 weeks ago, Cooley is up 7 points; Harman and a third candidate, law school professor John Eastman, are flat.
In the Democratic primary for CA Attorney General, San Francisco DA Kamala Harris edges businessman Chris Kelly and Los Angeles City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo, among voters who have a preference. But: almost half of of likely voters vote for someone else or are undecided, so any outcome is possible. Kelly is up 6 points from SurveyUSA’s previous poll; Harris is up 3; Delgadillo is down 3. Incumbent Attorney General Jerry Brown is running for Governor.
In the Democratic primary for CA Governor, Jerry Brown coasts with 70% of the vote. 6 other Democrats combined get 15% of the vote. Brown served as California’s 34th Governor, elected in 1974 and re-elected in 1978. Incumbent Governor Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger is term limited; the state’s term limit law does not apply to terms served before 1990, allowing Brown to run for the office again.
Filtering: SurveyUSA interviewed 2,700 California adults 05/21/10 through 05/23/10. Of them, 2,311 were registered to vote. Of the registered voters, 612 were determined by SurveyUSA to be likely to vote in the 06/08/10 Republican Primary; 716 were determined to be likely to vote in the 06/08/10 Democratic primary. Early voting began two weeks ago, 05/10/10.
