California’s U.S. Senate race between Democratic incumbent Barbara Boxer and Republican challenger Carly Fiorina remains a virtual tie with less than two weeks to go until Election Day.

The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of likely voters shows Boxer picking up 48 percent of the vote, while Fiorina draws support from 46 percent. Three percent prefer some other candidate, and three percent are undecided.

The race remains a toss-up in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Senate Balance of Power rankings.

Last week, Boxer led Fiorina 49 percent to 46 percent. Boxer was re-elected with 58 percent of the vote in 2004, but despite California's strong Democratic tendencies, this race has been close all year. The incumbent, who is seeking her fourth six-year term, has held a small lead in every survey but one since February with 42 percent to 49 percent of the vote. Fiorina, a former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, has earned 38 percent to 47 percent support in those same surveys.

The survey of 750 likely voters in California was conducted on Oct. 21, 2010, by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 4 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC.
