Looks like a regular Hog Roast in California… Meg Whitman spent $141 million of her own money, and Carly Fiorina spent $40 million
It is looking more and more like the MSM’s propagandized Republican sweep…
Got swept out from under them.
…Brown, the Democratic attorney general and former governor, led Whitman 52% to 39% among likely voters, the poll found. His advantage has more than doubled since aTimes/USC poll in September.
The abrupt movement in the race for governor came as Democratic incumbent Barbara Boxer held onto her 8-point margin over Republican Carly Fiorina in the U.S. Senatecontest. Boxer’s 50% to 42% lead was statistically unchanged from September’s 51% to 43% edge.
For both Democrats, the month between the two polls found the party’s strongest supporters rallying to the candidates’ sides: liberals, women and Latinos either solidified or expanded their backing for Brown and Boxer. Nonpartisan voters, whom Republicans had counted on to overcome the Democratic advantage in voter registration, moved away from the two Republican candidates, and moderate voters also tilted toward the Democrats.
Paula Bennett, a schoolteacher in the Sacramento-area town of Acampo, said she was drawn to Brown in part by the blizzard of cash Whitman has thrown at the race.
“I like the little guy; he didn’t have the money behind him like she did,” she said in a follow-up interview, adding that she sided with Brown for the same reason that she favors a mom-and-pop establishment over a retail behemoth.
“We don’t shop at Walmart. We shop at the local store. He just seemed like more of a down-home candidate.”
