Despite the demographics of California favoring the Democrats, despite being outspent nearly 2 to 1 on the airwaves, despite being a political neophyte, Carly Fiorina has now closed the gap with 28-year Washington veteran Barbara Boxer, trailing the Democrat by just one point — in a poll which skews left. And when you realize that undecideds tends to break for the challenger, this suggests that Carly is now poised to win this seat.
No wonder Ma’am’s been hitting the panic button. But, my gal Carly needs be prepared, be very prepared, ’cause when Boxer is cornered, she starts rooting around for some dirt in order to smear her rival.
You can help fight Mrs. Boxer’s nastiness by supporting a Republican who, a liberal newspaper acknowledges, has “has campaigned with a vigor and directness that suggests she could be effective in Washington” by clicking here.
UPDATE: Since the last Reuters/Ipsos poll which had the career politician up by 4, Boxer has spent over $10 million. So, ten million bucks cost her three polling points?
Ma’am, that’s not a very effective use of your resources.
UP-UPDATE: Allahpundit thinks Carly’ll soon be able to saturate the airwaves:
If memory serves, Fiorina ended up pulling away in the last few weeks of the GOP primary thanks to a statewide ad bombardment. Boxer’s actually outspent her on TV two-to-one thus far, but I can’t believe that’ll continue when Fiorina’s budget for the race is basically infinite
Let’s hope so.
