How close are the California races for Senate, governor?

October 19, 2010 |  3:40 pm


In the race for governor, according to ABC7, Democratic candidate Jerry Brown leads by seven points. Their news poll conducted by SurveyUSA revealed that Brown holds 47% of voter support, while Meg Whitman has 40%.

Five percent of voters still remain undecided.

The California Senate race remains even tighter. ABC7 describes it as a "dead heat."

Democrat Babara Boxer has 46% of voter support, while Republican Carly Fiorina has 44%. Four percent of voters remain undecided.

Due to margins of error in polling, the Senate race remains too close to call. Vanity Fair breaks down the two female Senate candidates in a Midterm Report Card.
