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?
