First Take: New poll shows Brown, Boxer with small leads. GOP continues to struggle with Latino voters

September 27, 2010 |  8:02 am

A new Los Angeles Times/USC poll shows Democrats Jerry Brown and Barbara Boxer with narrow leads over their Republican opponents.

Consultants for Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina both contested the methodology of the survey.

The poll also found both Democrats with a big lead among Latino voters.

The race for lieutenant governor is also close, according to a new Field Poll. And the first ad of the campaign suggests a nasty race for the remaining five weeks.

Tuesday is the first debate between Brown and Whitman. Be sure to stay tuned to PolitiCal for live blogging during the debate and analysis immediately following.
