CA US Senate 2010 Election: CBS 5 KPIX-TV/ SurveyUSA Poll Shows Republican Fiorina Widens Lead Over Democrat Boxer 47% to 42%
Just when the Democrats thought it was safe to go back in the water … a CBS 5 KPIX-TV poll shows that Republican challenger Carly Fiorina has increased her lead over Democratic incumbent Barbara Boxer in the polls 47% to 42% for the battle for the 2010 California US Senate seat. Could this really be … CALIFORNIA DREAMING!

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.
The CBS 5 poll, conducted by the research firm SurveyUSA, showed Fiorina edging Boxer 47 percent to 42 percent, compared to a CBS 5 poll one month ago showing Fiorina over Boxer 47 to 45 percent.
The polling shows just how much trouble Democrats are in for in the 2010 midterm election. If a “deep blue” state like California is in play for the US Senate, all things are possible for Republicans to take back control of the US Senate. If California does for for Fiorina, the GOP will run the table and pick up the 10 necessary seats to regain control of the Senate. However, Rasmussen and most others still have Boxer ahead in the polls, although under the 50% threshold for an incumbent. So could there have been a change in the trending, what might have made this occur … can you say gay marriage, Prop 8 and a judge over-turning the vote of the people.
As Hot Air points out things are getting even more tense for Democrats, the WaPojust moved two more Senate races from “lean Democratic” into the “toss-up” column. Hmmmmm. Washington state and Wisconsin are now in play and are considered toss-ups.
