    Even California voters are showing a move toward the more conservative candidates in the upcoming elections, with long-standing leftist Senator Barbara Boxer now trailing her Republican opponent in the most recent poll, and Republican candidate for governor Meg Whitman increasing her lead over recycled liberal Jerry Brown...
    ___

    California Democratic senator Barbara boxer is trailing Republican challenger Carly Fiorina by 2 points--47% to 45%--in a new SurveyUSA poll of likely voters released this evening. Fiorina has been closing in on Boxer--cutting the Democrat's lead from six, to five, to four, to three points in the last four polls--but this is the first public poll showing Fiorina in the lead.

    The same SurveyUSA poll shows Republican Meg Whitman leading Democrat Jerry Brown 46% to 39% in the California gubernatorial race.

    Neither Boxer nor Brown have really done any campaigning or commercials yet. They will.

    Seriously,why would anyone vote for Boxer or Brown? Haven't those two loons done enough damage out there? Brown was an absolute nightmare as Mayor of Oakland. Oakland is an awful mess. It became a miserable Third World nightmare under Brown's reign. Elect him as Governor? My God,what's wrong with Californians? Boxer has been a miserable failure for many years as well. She should have been gone a long time ago. Come on California,give the Socialist/Progressive creeps the boot. Make it happen California.

    The California Obama approval rating is 58% approve, 33% disapprove. Like Brown and Boxer, he really hasn't spent too much time in California, lately. And in fact, neither Whitman, nor Fiorina, have been photographed taking the long GOP walks along a Gulf Coast beach. Michelle Obama seems to know where the Gulf Coast is located, and seems to be trying to help out.

    There is a California sense of "wrong direction," but no specific blame appears to be leveled at the Democratic Administration, which would explain the relatively vapid performance of the two GOP campaigners, and the two Democrats yet to campaign.

    In fact, in Nevada, Senator Reid seems to be now holding his own in that Senate race. The "Slush Fund," seems to be working, anyone might guess(?)! It is recalled that the fund for the Gulf Coast is apparently GOP regarded to have been created without Due Process. It is money. GOP is against it. Obama finally came to Las Vegas, or somwhere in Nevada.

    LIkely, Nevada will understand, and even what really may have happened in Las Vegas!

    actually, Brown was a very good mayor of Oakland.

    And Boxer has been a good senator. I plan on voting for both in November.


    (I have a friend who went to college with Meg Whitman....let me say this...watch your back around her.)

    Thank you for saying it better than me. I have a few friends in Oakland who have said Brown was the best thing for that city in a while and unfortunately, since he left, it's gone downhill again.
