Field poll may mean trouble for Boxer

WASHINGTON, Oct. 17 (UPI) -- Only 45 percent of California voters favor giving U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., a third term in next year's election, a new Field Poll says.

The Field Poll, conducted between Sept. 25 and Oct. 1, found that 40 percent of voters are not inclined to re-elect her while 15 percent said they had no opinion. In July Field Poll, 48 percent of voters were inclined toward re-electing Boxer while 41 percent were not, the Sacramento Bee reported.

The latest poll of over 1,000 registered voters had Boxer beating several potential GOP challengers, with former California Secretary of State Bill Jones and former U.S. Treasurer Rosario Marin both holding her under the critical 50 percent mark.

Overall the survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.2 percent while the head-to-head match ups have a larger margin of error of plus or minus 4.5 percent.
