The wide discrepancies in the CA Senate poll findings are problematic. Chuck DeVore released a poll Monday which has him at 19 percent and within the margin of error compared to Fiorina's support at 28 percent. That sounds more reasonable to me, although Fiorina's got an undeniable advantage in getting the message out in paid television media. Things will tighten up in the last week of campaigning, and my sense is that grassroots turnout's going to help DeVore much more than either Fiorina or Tom Cambell, the third candidate in the race (see video at bottom). In any case, folks might also take a look at this commentary as well: "Why Tom Campbell and Carly Fiorina Cannot Beat Barbara Boxer (Why Chuck DeVore Can)."
