Pt only California Senate: Boxer (D) Holds Her Edge Over Fiorina (R)

Incumbent Democrat Barbara Boxer still holds a small lead over Republican Carly Fiorina in California’s U.S. Senate race, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports survey of Likely Voters in the state.

Boxer, who is seeking a fourth six-year term, now earns 49% support to Fiorina’s 46%. Two percent (2%) prefer another candidate, and three percent (3%) remain undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) 

The race remains a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Senate Balance of Power rankings as it has for weeks. 

Boxer posted a 48% to 46% lead a week ago. In spite of her powers as an incumbent and California’s strong Democratic leanings, Boxer’s been struggling to widen the gap all year. She’s held a small lead in every survey but one since February with 42% to 49% of the vote. Fiorina, a former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, has earned 38% to 47% support in those same surveys.

Three Republican Governors Face Increasingly Tough Election Contests By Geoffrey Skelley

Arizona and Iowa have few obvious things in common, but they do both have incumbent Republican governors seeking election in November. Another commonality is that the Crystal Ball now views both states’ gubernatorial contests as increasingly competitive, prompting ratings changes that move the Arizona race from Likely Republican to Leans Republican and the Iowa race from Leans Republican to Toss-up. In addition to these two changes, we are also shifting Illinois’ gubernatorial contest from Leans Democratic to Likely Democratic, another downgrade for Republicans.

U.S. vs. California: Voters Cool to Sanctuary States

Voters aren’t enthusiastic about living in a so-called sanctuary state and tend to favor the U.S. Department of Justice’s decision to sue California for protecting illegal immigrants from federal authorities.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 47% of Likely U.S. Voters oppose their state declaring itself a sanctuary state that protects illegal immigrants from the federal government. Thirty-nine percent (39%) favor such a move by their state. Fourteen percent (14%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Voters Stop Short of Pulling Immigration Agents from California

President Trump has threatened to pull border control enforcement agencies out of California because of the state’s refusal to enforce most illegal immigration laws, but voters aren’t sure that’s the best approach.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 34% of Likely U.S. Voters agree with the government pulling its immigration agents out of the state over its refusal to enforce most laws aimed at curbing illegal immigration. Forty-five percent (45%), though, do not think the government should pull its immigration agents out, but another 21% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Most Don't Favor Big State Tax On Tax Reform Savings

Democratic legislators in California want large companies to give over at least half the savings they get from the new national tax reform bill to the state government. But most voters aren't ready to go that way in their state.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 33% of Likely U.S. Voters think that such a tax proposal would be good for the state of California economically. Slightly more (36%) disagree, while nine percent (9%) say such a tax would have no impact. Twenty-two percent (22%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Home Schooling Is Not a Crime By Michelle Malkin

It's elementary. Education control freaks will use any excuse to crack down on competition. With two million K-12 students now educated at home (including our 9th grade son), the temptation to exploit the most marginal cases of alleged child abuse by home-schoolers has proven irresistible to statist politicians and government apologists.
