In an election for Governor of California today, 07/12/10, Republican Meg Whitman edges Democrat Jerry Brown 46% to 39%, according to a SurveyUSA poll conducted exclusively for KABC-TV Los Angeles, KPIX-TV San Francisco, KGTV-TV San Diego, and KFSN-TV Fresno. . . . .Although the Senate race is within the poll's margin of error, this is continues a long trend of rising numbers for Carly Fiorina and the first time that Fiorina has shown a lead, however small, over Boxer. Any number below 50% is a bad sign for an incumbent.
In the race for United States Senate, Democratic incumbent Barbara Boxer and Republican Carly Fiorina are effectively even. Fiorina 47%, Boxer 45%, within the survey's theoretical margin of sampling error.
Concerned for Sen. Boxer's future, VP Biden held a fundraiser for her last Thursday in Atherton, CA, on the San Francisco Peninsula. I wasn't there but Larry from San Francisco was and he reports on the protests organized by Carly Fiorina for CA:
