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.

What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls

Media coverage of the 2016 presidential campaign has focused more on its personalities and controversies than actual policy issues, and this week proved to be no different.

What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending August 13, 2016

In a presidential race where most of the media seem to treat policy positions like an afterthought, it may be a surprise that there are some pretty clear differences between the two major political parties and some obvious areas of agreement, too.

Americans rely heavily on e-mail and have to take their chances on whether their privacy is protected. Hillary Clinton had the option of using a highly secure e-mail system while secretary of State but opted out: The FBI says there’s a good chance some of that e-mail is in the hands of our enemies, and Democrats ironically now complain that the Russians will be releasing it to influence the coming election.

Nevada Senate: Heck (R) 42%, Cortez Masto (D) 41%

The race to replace retiring U.S. Senator Harry Reid in Nevada has tightened up over the past week.
