Brown Opens Up Lead in California

A new Public Policy Institute of California poll shows Jerry Brown (D) has opened an eight point lead over Meg Whitman (R) in the race for governor, 44% to 36%, among likely voters.

In September, the race was effectively tied.

Said pollster Mark Baldassare: "He particularly picked up support among Democrats, women and Latinos since the last survey. It's been an eventful few weeks. There have been debates. There have been allegations. There have been counter-allegations."

In the U.S. Senate race, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D) leads challenger Carly Fiorina (R) by six points, 43% to 37%.
