The latest poll from the Public Policy Institute of California (see results for the gubernatorial race and Prop 19) shows Boxer at 43% and Fiorina at 38%, with 17% undecided. The margin of error is up to 3.5%.
Previous PPIC polls showed an even tighter race, but always with Boxer ahead. In September, she led Fiorina by 7 points (42% to 35%) and by 5 points in July (39% to 34%).
Among Independents, the vote is split: 37% for Fiorina, 36% for Boxer and 18% undecided. Looking at it region, the San Francisco and Los Angeles metros are more likely to support Boxer while Central California and other Southern California areas support Fiorina. Also in support of Boxer are Latinos and women with whites and men siding with Fiorina. The younger crowd -- 18 to 34 -- supports Boxer while the older one is more split.
