Skip to comments.Rasmussen: Boxer 48, Fiorina 46

Californias U.S. Senate race between Democratic incumbent Barbara Boxer and Republican challenger Carly Fiorina remains a virtual tie with less than two weeks to go until Election Day.
The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Boxer picking up 48% of the vote, while Fiorina draws support from 46%. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The race remains a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Senate Balance of Power rankings.
Last week, Boxer led Fiorina 49% to 46%. Boxer was reeelected with 58% of the vote in 2004, but despite California's strong Democratic tendencies, this race has been close all year. The incumbent, who is seeking her fourth six-year term, has held a small lead in every survey but one since February with 42% to 49% of the vote. Fiorina, a former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, has earned 38% to 47% support in those same surveys.

TCJ had it at 50% for Fiorina and 47% for Boxer yesterday.
If Boxer wins, I would have all votes verified. I don’t trust these people.
boxer is toast.
Every poll that has Boxer under 50 is encouraging, because undecideds nearly always break for the challenger.
This race is a toss-up..... until you factor in the Dems’ astounding capacity for treachery.
Do GOPsters underpoll in CA?
Boxer, an 18 year sneator just cannot get to 50% and thats going to spell disaster for her because if undecideds are not going for Boxer now, it will throw Fiorina over the top.
People are not going to be crawling over hot coles to vote for Boxer.
48-46 and Boxer loses with any turnout at all.
Part of the Rasmussen poll:
For those who are certain who they will vote for:
Unfortunately the margin is close enough that Demonrat vote fraud (lots of illegals have probably been registered) will likely ensure a Boxer win.
Tossup totally dependent on turnout. But enocuragng that boxer is stuck 3 or 4 points below the magic number.
I heard that Whitman has spent part of her huge campaign expenditure on building a ground game for the election days. Brown has not and is depending on the union thugs for his ground game. If Whitman wins the ground game, Carly will benefit.
It’s a close race ... FRAUD may tip the scales.
Hmmm... that’s near the high end of the MOE. That puts the race within the GOP’s reach.
Still, we shouldn’t consider this one won until the vote has been certified.
The last time Boxer was in a race this close, she pulled a sleazy last minute attack on Bruce Herschensohn, which cost him the election.
I think CA Dems are worried. A few days ago, ex-SF mayor Willie Brown was quoted as saying something along the of: the Democrats in the state had no ground game and that they couldn’t rely on the unions to provide that ground game. Also, that the Whitman campaign has created a massive GOTV operation unlike any they’ve seen before in the state. That will definitely help Fiorina.
Oh please let us get rid of Boxer. Let us do SOMETHING right in this state. We will probably get stuck with Governor Moonbeam again and a very angry rich Meg Whitman.
Yeah but since when do Demoncrats play fair when they are more desperate than ever?
