Skip to comments.Boxer drops into dead heat with Fiorina in Rasmussen poll
Posted on 08/26/2010 1:37:21 PM PDT by Justaham
Youll remember that Rasmussen has actually been the good news poll for Barbara Boxer in her re-election campaign. The last Field Poll showed her trailing Carly Fiorina, and so did Survey USA, while Rasmussen at the same time had her up five points, 45/40. Now her Rasmussen firewall shows signs of crumbling as it has her lead down to a single point, 44/43:
Democratic incumbent Barbara Boxer and her Republican challenger Carly Fiorina are now essentially tied in Californias U.S. Senate race, moving the state from Leans Democratic to a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen ReportsElection 2010 Senate Balance of Power rankings. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in California shows Boxer with 44% support, while Fiorina picks up 43% of the vote. Five percent (5%) like another candidate in the race, and eight percent (8%) are undecided.
Earlier this month, Boxer held a five-point lead, 45% to 40%, and she was ahead 49% to 42% in July. Since February, Boxers support has ranged from 42% to 49%. In those same surveys, Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, has earned 38% to 43% of the vote.

If California goes well, we are in tremendous shape in November.
Although it’s a nice thought...I’ll believe CA goes republican when I see it. Not a moment sooner.
Oh, it would be so nice to see Boxer go down in this election.
The witch stated on the Senate floor that she didn’t believe a baby was worthy of state protection until the parents took it home.
Boxer will haul out the sleezy lies at the last minute...just like every time.
Dang...thought the headline read “Boxer drops dead in the heat”...it has been toasty in Kallie-fornia the past couple weeks.
It would be as sweet as when Tom Dashul was discarded.

LOL! I had the same reaction. Wishful thinking I guess, especially after Pelosi was jinxed by one of her own lackeys.
I will dance in the street if Boxer loses.
I really don't think people want to hear it this time. There's real economic pain in this state and if Carly Fiorina one posed nude for her boyfriend or once tipped only 5% or took the mattress tags off her bed, Californians aren't going to give a sweet sh-t. They want to know where Boxer's been while the state sank into the mire, why she sided with the EPA on denying water to the Central Valley putting 10s of thousands out of work and why the only 2 issues she ever seems to care about is abortion and putting increased taxes on the gas we Californians use to keep us on the freeways. Until Boxer can answer those questions to peoples' satisfaction, and I doubt she ever can, the rest is just going to be background noise.
It is my hope that California will turn from Blue to Purple then to Red by 2012. It an uphill thinking but I sure hope it can be done.
seeing boxer go down would please me more than seeing paris hilton go down.
Damn! Thought at first reading the headline said “Boxer Drops Dead”
I fart in the general direction of your 103 and 106 - we had 110.
... and I personally think Rasmussen skews Right.
Most of the high-intensity (and close) elections in California the last few years have been centered around social issues, and not necessarily things that drive union voters to the polls. We'll see if they can effectively turn out to help their advocate, Boxer. Hopefully, they're out of practice in California.
Either way, Kah-Lee-Forn-Yah and America are screwed.
This is a contest between two nutjobs and, regardless of who wins, the winner will still be a nutjob!!
Oh wow, that is scorching hot. What city do you live in?
1) This is still California we are talking about They came close to electing a republican with Awnoldddd, but he is RINO
2) While it is not Chicago there is till the cheating factor we need to worry about.
3) Voter complacency: 2-5 percent lead in the polls is not enought to over come the cheating factor, but any thing over 7 percent will lead to complacency.
The only thing Boxer has going for her is Barack Obama, oddly enough. Despite opposition to his one big legislative victory and dissatisfaction with the results of Obamanomics, he gets a 55/43 approval rating among Californias voters.Is that sick, or what?
the latter describes the pols from such realm.
one has to reach all the way to massholification to find a more reprehensible group of reprobates and retards.
The entire nation wants her to lose.
Not gonna happen.
Millions of registered and voting illegal aliens will give Boxer a comfortable win.
Yep - I’ll never forget ‘92, the first year the beeotch ran for the U.S. Senate. Days before the election, Boxer’s smear machine, headed up by the odious Bob Mulholland, threw out the story about Bruce Herschenson being seen leaving a strip club. He didn’t have time to recover, and Box-O-Rocks has been squatting in the Senate ever since :-(
The beauty is making the dems spend A LOT of money in states that they have taken for granted way to long!!!
Farts on you all! We had temps north of 113 yesterday in Temecula!
Fresno County. And as you can tell, I wasn’t bragging, I was whining. :)
LOL - (Hand in armpit making farting sounds)
That headline can generate real excitment if you miss the word “INTO” as you read it.
Ahhhhh! Didn’t know that Fresno could be hotter than Sacramento. I live in El Dorado Hills, close to Folsom.
Not to mention putting orchards out of life. Traveling down Interstate 5 is depressing - empty fields, dead fruit/nut trees.
Dream on folks. Unless Boxer is down close to 10 points the day before the election, she is a shoo in.
Even down by 5 she will win. The illegal vote in CA is off the charts. Add Democrat fraud and it will be nearly impossible for Boxer to lose.
And *if* Boxer garners 2% less than Fiorina in the actual vote then Democrats will recount and discover misplaced ballots until she wins.
You can make book on it, they are not giving up that seat. They know no matter how much they cheat, the Republicans in the Senate will whine and then grab their ankles. They will never shut down the Senate in response to Dem fraud, or refuse to seat her.
Yeah, I curl my lip and snarl a lot watching the weather reports. Constantly, the weather up north of us is much much better.
The endless problem in CA is it is an expensive media market because it is so big. Dems get endless money from Hollywood, unions, fraud, libs, etc.
Any Repub has to have tons of money to compete. Maybe Silicon Valley/Tech is FINALLY waking up to how evil this lib garbage is.
“I will dance in the street if Boxer loses.”
You will hear my victory cries from coast to coast.
Nov. 2 is going to be a LOOOONG night.
They need to line both sides of I 5 with thank you Boxer signs.
Over its history, the senate has been mostly Republican in California.
There are signs - “Congress-created Dust Bowl” for one, and the other says Costa, Pelosi, and Boxer with a line across their names.
CA was a nice place when the Beach Boys were singing Sirf City. It was still okay up til the late 1980s.
Carly is very good on business issues, but she has uttered some goofy crap recently on social issues.
“This is a contest between two nutjobs and, regardless of who wins, the winner will still be a nutjob!! “
What makes Fiorina a nutjob?
I meant to type Surf City.
Today - CA is Serf City.
Dang...(commenting on headline only), when I first glanced at that headline, I thought it said ‘Boxer dropped dead...’ Now I’m off this thread to do some self examination and deep introspection.. because that should not have popped into my mind.
“Didnt know that Fresno could be hotter than Sacramento”
It is rare for Fresno NOT to be several degrees hotter than Sac.
Sacramento often gets the “Delta Breeze” which knocks a good ten degrees off of valley heat. Fresno gets the Bakersfield Blast instead. :o)
