California’s big GOP candidates were even less popular than legalized pot. Yes, Prop 19 went down to defeat -- but final returns show that the 3,423,145 votes it drew made it more popular than Meg Whitman (3,102,646) and Carly Fiorina (3,170,287), both of whom spent a lot more money for the privilege of losing.

California is broken......

Democrats are expected to give away a large chunk of their advantage over Republicans in voter registration by failing to cast ballots today.

Though California has far more Democrats than Republicans on voter rolls, 44 percent to 31 percent, the latter tends to participate in elections at a higher rate -- a trend that should continue today, according to a Field Poll released today.
The Field Poll also concluded that:

• Women will cast a slightly higher percentage of votes than men, 51 percent to 49 percent.

• Caucasians will cast 71 percent of all votes, compared to Latinos, 16 percent; African American, 5 percent; and Asian or other minorities, 8 percent.

• A majority of voters will be college graduates, 52 percent, while an additional 30 percent will have attended some college or trade school classes, and 18 percent will have a high school education or less.

In the Senate race, this means a toss-up folks.

Washington could stand a dose of cutting costs, reducing bureaucracy and challenging the unhealthy sense of entitlement creeping into our culture. Sound like someone we need in a political leader? I think it does. Attacks on Fiorina focus on her decision to reduce the number of jobs and move jobs oversees. I would venture to say that every CEO who has ever fulfilled his or her corporate responsibilities during a time of economic downturn (as Fiorina experienced) makes similar moves. Every CEO weighs tax and regulatory implications as they choose where plants and people are located. In fact, it is these tough choices that qualify Fiorina for the U.S. Senate.

The Republican woman who has the best chance to win in California on Nov. 2 is not billionaire Meg Whitman, who has spent more than $140 million of her own money to make sure every living thing knows who she is. It's Carly Fiorina, another former Silicon Valley CEO with thinner pockets but a looser campaign style who has drawn incumbent Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer into a dead heat.

The two Republican candidates have not campaigned together, but when they have appeared at the same event, it has been Fiorina who gets the attention, pounding a shot of Tequila and letting loose a rolled-r trill at the Hispanic 100 Lifetime Achievement Award dinner in Newport Beach (Orange County) this month.

Read it all - actually a fair analysis.

The race for the US Senate in California is an actual dead heat, with both Fiorina and Boxer standing right at forty-four percent (44%) of the vote. Six percent (6%) of voters are voting for one of the other candidates, and 5% are undecided…

It is also important to note that Boxer’s negatives are fully institutionalized to the point where she has never once broken the 45% level in terms of her ballot strength, and there are a “hard” fifty-three percent (53%) of voters who believe it is time for a new person.

To help create jobs, Fiorina said, she favors creating "special economic zones" in the United States where the federal government could provide relief from taxes and regulations in partnership with states and local governments.

She also called for a five-year tax holiday for start-up businesses and a 10-year tax holiday for existing businesses that repatriate jobs that were exported.

"Other places have learned from us to attract jobs," Fiorina said, referring to countries that now compete with the United States in a global economy.

Fiorina on Tuesday attacked Boxer for failing to support many tax-cutting proposals during her years as a senator, and for supporting the stimulus-fund proposal last year. Fiorina said that California's unemployment rate, which rose from more than 10 to more than 12 percent was evidence of stimulus spending's failure.

Now, Mrs. Fiorina's polished performance in her bid in California to unseat Sen. Barbara Boxer is turning heads among influential social and religious conservatives. Win or lose, they say, the former Hewlett-Packard Co. CEO's campaign-trail transformation and her political convictions make her a top-of-the ticket contender for the Republican Party down the road.

"Carly Fiorina could easily be a presidential candidate," said Larry K. Burbach, a Burbank advertising executive and social conservative. He was one of many attendees at a recent private gathering of conservatives who were wowed by an address by Mrs. Fiorina.

One, in the heat of a reelection campaign, Boxer will say just about anything so long as she can get away with it. And she usually can. Two, she is under extraordinary pressure from Fiorina, by far the strongest Republican candidate she’s ever faced. Three, Boxer is a tough, resourceful, and shrewd campaigner and not too haughty to correct a false statement when necessary to avert trouble.

Often that’s not necessary. Boxer, 69, makes so many dubious, untrue, hypocritical, or outlandish remarks in a single debate that most of them fly by without registering.

Pretty much explains Boxer and her camapign.

What an odd race. Things tightened up in early September, then Boxer bounced out to a six-to-eight point lead, which made this ol’ eeyore’s fragile little heart think she was pulling away. But no: The three polls taken this month have had the race by three or four points, and now suddenly via Reuters we’ve got a virtual dead heat.

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.

In the final days of her most difficult reelection bid, California Senator Barbara Boxer is emphasizing veterans issues to deflect criticism of her long history of undermining the US military, a cynical strategy that has garnered an endorsement from the increasingly leftist VFW. At the recent opening of a new veterans' center in Pasadena, Boxer was overcome with emotion as Senator Inouye of Hawaii defended her record of support for veterans and veterans' issues.

Let's review a few facts that Boxer and her handlers hope the voters won't recall.
