Fox News Poll: CA-SEN And CA-GOV Races Are Very, Very Close

Fox News is out with new numbers on the California Senate and gubernatorial races this morning, and both races are looking tight… really, really tight.

The survey, conducted by Rasmussen offshoot Pulse Opinion Research through an automated dialing system, finds Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer leading Republican former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina by the narrowest of margins in the Senate race, 47%-46%. In the state’s gubernatorial race, Democratic state Attorney General Jerry Brown and Republican former eBay CEO Meg Whitman are deadlocked, 45%-45%.When Fox News polled both races on September 11, Boxer was on top of Fiorina by two points, 46%-44%, and Whitman had a six-point advantage on Brown, 49%-43%.

A PPP survey released yesterday had Boxer on top of Fiorina in the Senate race 50%-42%.

The TPM Poll Average shows Boxer leading Fiorina 47.2%-45.0%. In the gubernatorial race, the TPM Poll Average shows Whitman on top of Brown, 46.6%-44.2%.

The margin of error of the newest statewide survey is ±3.0 percentage points.
