Republican challenger Carly Fiorina has drawn closer to California Sen. Barbara Boxer in the final Public Policy Polling survey, which puts her within four percentage points of the Democratic incumbent at 46 percent support from likely voters to Boxer’s 50 percent. That compares favorably with last week’s Field Poll showing an 8-point gap.

Fiorina, Boxer, Election, Senate, CaliforniaAlthough Boxer is polling at “the magic 50 percent line,” says PPP president Dean Debnam, her approval rating is “atrocious,” with only 40 percent pleased with her job performance and 50 percent displeased. Forty-two percent view Fiorina favorably, and 44 percent negatively.

PPP, a Democratic-affiliated firm, calls the odds of an upset in California’s Senate race “pretty small,” but “better than they were a week ago.”
The PPP survey took place Oct. 29 to 31. The margin of error is 3.3 percent.
