    But she always wins in the end...

    1992
    Boxer 5,173,467 votes (47.9%)
    Herschensohn 4,644,182 votes (43%)

    1998
    Boxer 4,411,705 (53.06%)
    Fong  3,576,351 (43.01%)

    2004
    Boxer 6,955,728 (57.8%)
    Jones 4,555,922 (37.8%)

    She polls poorly, but is a tireless campaigner and fund-raiser. Her numbers against Arnold actually give me a lot of encouragement. I don't have time to find polling from 1998 or 2004 to show how the above would compare, but I distinctly remember she was targeted in 1998 by the GOP.
