While most polls have shown 28-year Washington veteran Barbara Boxer leading Carly Fiorina, a SurveyUSA survey has the businesswoman ahead of the outgoing Senator:
California Republican U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina has increased her lead over Democratic incumbent Barbara Boxer to five percentage points according to a new CBS 5 KPIX-TV poll released Thursday, which also shows gubernatorial candidates Democrat Jerry Brown and Republican Meg Whitman in a dead heat.
Hey, Ma’am, how do you like them numbers? Strikingly, Fiorina has increased “her lead in the Central Valley, from seven points one month ago to 21 points in this latest poll.” Given how the federal government and the state’s political establishment have neglected this once-booming agricultural in order to purse their supposedly “green” policies, expect turnout here to soar.
(Can someone tell me why it is that policies dubbed “green” have led to the “de-greening” of the Central Valley? Call it the Brown* effect.)
*Yes, Ma’am, references to career Democratic politicians are intentional.
