Poll: Boxer has lead in senate race

SACRAMENTO – A new poll shows Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer leading Republican challenger Carly Fiorina as Election Day draws near.

The Field Poll released Friday found 49 percent of likely voters supporting Boxer, compared with 41 percent for Fiorina. One in 10 voters remains undecided. Independents favor Boxer 49 percent to 32 percent.

The same poll taken last month found Boxer with an advantage of 6 percentage points among likely voters.

Fiorina returned to the campaign trail Thursday after being hospitalized for an infection related to reconstructive surgery after battling breast cancer.

The poll surveyed 1,092 likely voters by telephone from Oct. 14-26. It has a sampling error margin of plus or minus 3.2 percentage points.
