    Barbara Boxer is in an extremely perilous state of affairs in thereisnospoon's home state.

    Rest assured, countless statements of denial will ensue. After all, California would overturn marriage equality. California wouldn't elect a doped-up bodybuilder for Governor...

    We're close to losing one of our best Senators.

      is a statement I breathlessly saw texted to me, commented to me on here, said to my face in California. The denial/the lazy is strong with them.

      and I seriously doubt Barbara Boxer's case is all that "perilous." I looked at the story and it's wildly overblown. We are not "close" to "losing her" at all, unless a bunch of people like you throw up your hands now and convince yourselves. We should probably look at contributing to people like Connie Saltonstall and Bill Halter who have a shot at taking out someone really really really bad.

        you referring to? This is from today:

        In another totally unsurprising outcome, the Field Poll has found what we all expected to be true: the US Senate race will be a close one. Boxer and her GOP challengers are essentially tied at this point, though who that challenger will be is still up in the air...

        Boxer's favorables are down from 48% in January to 38% in March, and unfavorables are up from 39% in January to 51% in March.

        That shouldn't come as a surprise. Boxer has been getting beaten up by the GOP candidates but has yet to launch her own response. And Boxer suffers, though no fault of her own, for being part of the failed Senate Democratic caucus.
        ...
        What this poll shows, then, is not just that Boxer will indeed have the close race she and her team have been expecting and planning to win for some time. It also shows that key to her re-election victory will be turning out Democrats to vote in November. Neither Campbell nor Fiorina can win unless a substantial number of California voters stay home in November.

        Abstention, not apostasy, is the real challenge Boxer faces. If she can drive up turnout, she is still in the driver's seat for November.

        I'm not in California anymore. And what's more, when I did relocate to California, I wasn't the one on the sitting on the ass side of the Prop 8/local elections situation.

        Rude.
