Following up on all the Field Polls released last week -- recreational marijuana and Jerry Brown not doing as well as some would expect -- here's the results of the third one (.pdf): "Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer is clinging to a narrow three-point lead (47% to 44%) over her Republican opponent, businesswoman Carly Fiorina, among likely voters in California’s upcoming November general election for U.S. Senate." LIke the Brown-Whitman match up for Governor, Boxer's dominating Democrat lead has shrunk significantly statewide. Locally in L.A. County, however, Boxer still leads by 55 to 35.
