Poll Watch: Barbara Boxer Leads Both GOP Challengers in California Senate Race But Falls Below 50 Per Cent

Some good news for the California GOP in the latest Rasmussen poll.
A new Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 survey of the contest in California shows Boxer now beating former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina by 10 points 49% to 39%. Four percent (4%) like some other candidate, and eight percent (8%) are not sure how they will vote.

In July, Boxer led Fiorina by just four but had a 47% to 38% lead in March.

Against state Assemblyman Chuck DeVore, it’s a nine-point race, with Boxer ahead 46% to 37%. Seven percent (7%) prefer another candidate, and 10% are undecided.

Although Democrat incumbent Senator Barbara Boxer is ahead of both Republicans Carly Fiorina and Chuck DeVore, she falls below the “magic” 50 per cent polling number for incumbents. Any incumbent POL who falls below 50 per cent is considered vulnerable.

Should Fiorina or DeVore emerge from next June’s GOP primary election unscathed by intra-party squabbling, look for a more competitive race than Boxer has ever seen.
