Boxer-Fiorina is 42-38
Boxer-DeVore is 42-39
Boxer-Campbell is 43-41

Would be nice if you identified exactly what the numbers mean in the future.

The only one that I could see possibly beating her is Campbell. The other two are just such clowns and I certainly don't buy Rasmussen's DeVore numbers.

It's an anti-incumbent vote, with the public at large knowing very little about any of the Republican candidates.

     Based on that, it is hard to tell how the race will turn out yet. A Republican running for statewide office in California generally cannot win on anti-incumbent sentiment alone.

Bear in mind that only two Republicans have won a statewide election in California this decade: Arnold Schwarzenegger and Steve Poizner. Arnold's case is of course special, and Poizner won because everyone hates Cruz Bustamante. No Republican has either of those things going for them.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Next time you add a CA senate poll, assume that Campbell is the nominee and use those numbers. Much more accurate.

Campbell has what it takes to win, imo, but it's going to be that much harder to beat a democrat in a federal race, rather than a statewide race. He would have had a much easier time becoming governor. Whitman is a worse candidate than him and even she has a good chance of becoming governor, and depending on how Brown runs, she might even be the favorite.

Some people just don't want to be in the executive branch over the legislative branch, and visa-versa. The jobs are very different.

LOL, Failure

Alright, if Republicans gain less than 75 seats, I'll prominently display my failure in my signature.

So why was he running for governor for the longest time?

Good luck getting the two people who put the polls into the database to do anything logical with them.

Campbell sounds too intellectual to win, from what I've heard from debates and speeches. I don't see how he could appeal to Latinos. I have no idea how many lower income whites who are culturally conservative and uneducated but still vote for Democrats still exist in California but I could see Campbell underperforming in areas that contain these voters.

I agree with the consensus that only Campbell can win, but I don't agree that DeVore is a joke.  He would be a serious candidate in many states, he's just too conservative to win here.

Fiorina, on the other hand, is a total and complete joke.

Wrong. Campbell effectively backflips around the entire Boxer strategy. California is a fiscally moderate and socially liberal state. Campbell is a fiscal moderate and social liberal. Campbell supports abortion rights, gay marriage, environmental protections, and firearm restrictions. Boxer does, too, but this is a large bloc of Bay Area and SoCal voters, middle to upper-middle class suburbanites who want fiscal responsibility, modern government, and social liberalism. With social issues effectively cancelled out, the campaign will be fought over economic issues. As a former finance director and Dean of Economics at UC Berkeley, Campbell is in a strong position. He also has shown himself to be a budget hawk and at the same time, able to raise taxes when necessary. There is no way for  boxer to pigeonhole tom Campbell as she has other opponents. Tom Campbell can win these Bay Area moderates and SoCal suburbanites that the Democrats rely on to build their big majorities. Tom Campbell, yes, will run weaker among Hispanics (though Meg Whitman will do very well with them), but he will get enough Hispanics that he still has a net gain after making ground among suburban voters. If Tom Campbell wins, he will win 50-47 over Barbara boxer in a close fought and very expensive contest. No other candidate has this potential.
