Democrats hold slight edge in California races
The poll of 600 registered California voters found that 78 percent believe the state is on the wrong track, with most saying the biggest problem facing California is the weak economy.

Incumbent Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer holds a slight edge over Republican Carly Fiorina -- 45 percent to 41 percent -- in Boxer's bid for a fourth term in the November 2 congressional elections.

Former California Governor Jerry Brown leads Republican candidate Meg Whitman by 45 percent to 39 percent in their race to succeed Arnold Schwarzenegger as governor.

Ipsos poll analyst Clifford Young said the fact that Democrats are leading is not unusual since they have better name recognition but as the campaign progresses "we should see some sort of dimunition of that advantage."

"What we're finding is a very close race," Young said.

1. Oh, God. Please, please don't let these 2 races be close.
I want Boxer and Brown to win by a landslide and send a message that we've tried lots of republicans out here and it just ain't worked.

3. I have never seen a result where a Republican being 6 points ahead was described as "close" nt
