Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina continues to widen her lead over California Senator Barbara Boxer for this year's election, according to poll results released today. The CBS/Survey USA poll found that Republican Fiorina leads Democratic incumbent Boxer 47% to 42%.

That's quite a difference from just last week when a Rasmussen Report survey of likely voters found that Boxer was ahead by five points. She was at 45% and Fiorina at 40%.

Last month, CBS/Survey USA conducted a similar poll, finding that Fiorina led Boxer by two points, 47% to 45%.

The endgame? It's anyone's guess who will win.
