The race for U.S. Senate in California appears to be in flux. Incumbent Barbara Boxer says most opinion polls appear to lean her way.

"A few weeks ago, the Field Poll had me leading by 1 and then three months later had me leading by 3," said Boxer. "And then two days ago another poll had me down by 2 – Survey USA. And today Rasmussen poll has me up by 7. So it’s going to be tough. Most of my races are tough."

That Rasmussen poll also shows Republican Carly Fiorina ahead of Boxer among the fastest-growing group of voters in the state – those who decline to state a party.
