Fiorina needs over 50% and at least a 5 point lead to survive voter fraud.

I SO hope this poll is true. I want Boxer’s behind OUT of the Senate so badly! Everyone I know is voting for Fiorina and Whitman but yes, Fiorina and Whitman’s lead has to grow because voter fraud and SEIU/ACORN thugs are gonna try to steal the election

Never heard of this group, but the poll was posted by Carly Fiorina’s Twitter page. Sample size is decent at 800. I’ll take any good news in this race!

I pray this poll is true, but don’t think it is. Almost every poll has her within striking distance, but still behind 4 to 5 points.

Polls all within margin of error, whichever side shows an advantage. It will come down to intensity of turnout - and it needs to be higher for the Republicans since they are outnumbered in that state.

As much as I think Meg Whitman would turn into another Schwartzenegger, I can’t believe Brown has a chance... we’ve seen his work!

We’re just tired of Boxer

RCP is calling it a toss up. Dead heat.

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2010/senate/ca/california_senate_boxer_vs_fiorina-1094.html

But support for Boxer seems to be dropping fast.

The “Don't call me Ma'am” jerk may be approaching an epiphany served up by the American people.

And, Rasmussen had the presidential approval index go from -19 to -10 in 5 days. His sampling is getting flustered because things are so overwhelming he can’t believe his own information. I have no clue who Wilson Strategies is, and I have been hard on the Dem influenced polls (like the one a few days ago that had Murray in WA as +15, and Manchin in WV as +10) so I am cautious about this one. But I think Rasmussen’s words has to be taken with a grain of salt until his folks get the Presidential approval numbers more consistent instead of the anti-Obama numbers dropping in half without cause in less than a week. I think his likely voting setup needs work.

Nor have I.

I just polled the people in my house and Fiorina wins by a landslide.

Winning in polls is easy. Winning in elections is a lot tougher, especially when your opponent has a history of voter and/or election fraud.

The methodology looks sound as does their sampling technique, so I’d say they’re reliable. However, the poll is close to a week old.

I would take these Ras state level polls with a grain of salt.

His track records on a state level is not great.

As for village idiot O’Reilly , that clown is called “ ted baxter “ by Rush for a good reason.

That stooge lets that vile COP hater and Race bait-er/ supposed Professor on his show .

WE skip Ted Baxter's show.

I’m afraid that’s the case with every Senate race in any state with two or more major cities. They’re going to get obliterated in the House. All of their energy will be focused on stealing enough votes to keep a healthy majority in the Senate.

Boxer is the "cap and trade" connection, dire to the Obama Tax-movement; tied to the Globalist movement... Each California vote for Boxer, is a voter's beg to pay an additional $3500; be it in income tax hikes, or lost in inflationary goods...

And that means lost Freedoms, in the form of 1099 mandatory income declarations as "revenue off-sets" intended to track business income; bundled in the many (already passed) legislations.

I don't trust anyone of these Ras state level polls.

He has been trashed by the Obama media and playing too real safe.

Also,if these polls are not close then Ras isn't
getting theses TV appearances and radio time .

His polls are for entertainment and spin purposes.

Has any of these pollsters ever been openly
mocked for their crummy polls from the past ?

Hi...I understand the Democratic party has put millions into California and Nevada’s races....they are surely afraid and rightfully so...will be interesting to see if the funding makes a difference, likely it has kept Boxer in the heat or she’d be trailing now in a very big way.

“Fiorina needs over 50% and at least a 5 point lead to survive voter fraud.”

Sadly, I think that will be true in most of the close races. Acorn and other such Dem pukes will do their usual multiple votes, register the usual dead people, micky mouse, donald duck and the like.

Wilson Research Strategies is a polling and consulting company that works for GOP candidates. AFAIK, their reputation is good.

You have probably seen the owner on FOX News.

Exactly. Turnout is the key, and I think Prop 19 is the pivot. I believe it was placed on the ballot to bring out more of the youth and democrat vote, so Republicans need to get highly mobilized.

I don’t trust any poll, like this one, that puts any Republican ahead because it leads to complacency and is probably designed to do so.

43% is a disastrous number for an incumbent. If this poll’s methodology is sound, Boxer and Brown are both probably toast.

This is great news if accurate. I'll tell you what's getting me about these races and polls. Christine, Boxer, Murray, Reid - that they're even close is very upsetting to me. As I've said before, the avalanche of data out there - pick your topic, Obama's background, Pelosi, corruption, Healthcare bill, the socialist administration, the czars, the debt, the progressives future plans, - I could go on and on - and people are "going to vote for Boxer anyway" or "vote for Murray anyway", or Frank, Reid or Coons. Months ago I was to the point with "there's something (negative dem or Obama news) every day" I thought "there's so much negative stuff, will anyone vote for a democrat on November 2nd?" Now these races are close. .

BTW, a heads up on two sites. Trevor Loudons all 100 articles on Obama Here Dare your liberal friends to read these articles and then talk with them. . and Mark Levin's Sick of Spending site Here Download Free, 'November is Coming' handbook.

And his statement was unequivocal so I'm at a loss to understand this poll. His forecast for Connecticut as well as our taking the Senate was also disappointing to hear.
