Skip to comments.Rasmussen: Boxer 48, Fiorina 46
Posted on 10/22/2010 12:07:24 PM PDT by GOPinCa
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?
That we be excellent news if accurate.
Definitely watch this excellent anti-Boxer ad by Hollywood producer Zucker:
Then send it to everyone you know in CA.
West Coast effect: If we sweep the East, Dems won’t bother coming out to the polls in the West. They’ll stay home, smoking “medicinal” tobacco substitutes, and Carly will get a bigger margin than expected, too big even for the standard Dem vote fraud to sway the results.
In any case, I’m amazed that this race is in play at all, and that bodes well for quite a few races nationwide. I wonder what’s going to happen in races that no one bothers polling - are more in play and we just don’t realize it?
bump to watch since blocked at work..
Incumbents under 50% are historical toast.
Wow, I had forgotten all about that. You are absolutely right. That type of sleazy move is known in political history as a “Roorback.”
Carly needs to have the sleaziest, below the belt, tatas on the chopping block ad her folks can muster up in the can. Then, if Boxer goes her roorback route, smack her with it wall to wall.
Hopefully, the Republican wave that will become apparent when the polls close on the East Coast will discourage voters still waiting to vote on the West Coast.
What is a TCJ?
Who would have thunked that Carly would do this good.
Yep; this one is well within the margin of fraud. Boxer wins by 1,150 votes statewide as Bay Area and LA precincts bring in the last late returns...
Getting to the polls is the name of the game. Motivation is on our side however the nasty meanies of the left in California will go down swinging regardless of how bad their candidates are..... playing spoiler is almost as fun for them!
I agree if the pundits start calling landslides for Repubs early on then a wave could be big however don’t count on most MSM heads to start throwing in the towel as they are very aware if they do they could make things on their side even worse out here...
(words I never thought I’d hear myself saying, but...)
(Unh; must rest now)
· A State who's next major industry is growing pot and a workforce that will be stoners.
· A State on the verge of Chapter 11 of which rumors on the "Business Insider" of Bernake buying their worthless bonds with worthless Treasuries.
· With these two clowns one National one as Gov, nothing will change, no pension reform at the State level.
At that point how does California not become the straw that become the tipping point to throw the economy into the Abys?
I think the rest of the DBM will fall into line behind Fox when Fox starts calling races.
It's a competitive market for eyeballs. If they think they will lose viewers to Fox, they'll sell their own mothers.
Of course, MSNBC will probably be an exception. They might be worth watching for the entertainment value: Chrissy's leg tingle will become an eye tic.
Agreed. In a close race fraud will always carry the day.
Gotta love Zucker, remember this one:
Michael Reagan was interviewed on Fox today and he was not at all impressed by the Whitman or Fiorina campaigns.
Will be nice to see that harridan voted out of office. She fits Rush’s true description of a fema nazi(someone who prefers abortion to a live baby).
I remember that. It was because he once went to a strip bar. Boxer was “OUTRAGED!”. Funny how a few years later she didn’t seem to be too angry at Bubba for his molestation of women.
could you explain what the phrase “ground game” means in politics
A good ground game means in the area of coverage, actively having a network that works well on getting the message out, motivating the base to turn out, getting voters to the polls, stopping dirty tricks and making damn sure you win over the opposition.
Terrific video. It highlights what a brain-dead moron this woman really is. Well done!
Here is an excellent article about Whitman’s ground game ops: http://www.fresnobee.com/2010/10/22/2128400/voter-turnout-key-in-coming-election.html
” Unfortunately the margin is close enough that Demonrat vote fraud (lots of illegals have probably been registered) will likely ensure a Boxer win. “
It seems like the Republican party has a “ kick me” sign on it. If they don’t check for fraud, I say every very close race will be stolen.The Dems are scared, and out for blood. ACORN and its derivatives/affiliates are alive and well and don’t fear us.
Also, Prop 19 the marijuana initiative, is losing ground.
That was the democrats’ shiny thing to lure their voters to the polls.
Boxer will win. Any close election the donks will cheat,,,dead people voting, illegals voting, military ballots declared illegal, etc.
Within striking distance....the polls nearly always lean to the left anyway! The truth is probably even closer.
Mrs. Boxer will win big in Hollywoodland. And Fiorina has come out for the Armenian genocide resolution —she should repeat that loudly and clearly...Boxer fails each time.
“Unfortunately the margin is close enough that Demonrat vote fraud (lots of illegals have probably been registered) will likely ensure a Boxer win.”
I know they’ve done this in the past. It happened in my back yard with ACORN stealing the statehouse here in 2004 for Gregoyle (sic). But I think ACORN has been tamed, we’re much more aware and it will be much harder to pull off this year.
