This is why I never believe Ras polls, no way Brown and Whitman are tied. I kind of wish Schwarzenegger was the opponent again, he'd get crushed.

So you believe rasmussen's schwarzenegger numbers but not there Whitman/Brown number.

Any reason why, other than thats what you whish were true?

That's funny. Democrats were saying the same thing about Rass polls in NJ and VA before he called those too.

No way McDonnell would win by double digits huh? No way Christie was going to hold on.

No way Whitman is tied in CA.

Every wonder why they keep saying Dems are in a panic? If I lived in CA, I would be DONE with LIberals, R or D. That states needs a serious return to fiscal sanity, or it will end up in some sort of Federal Receivership soon.

Well said. CA keeps putting in liberals, D or R. You are right, if they don't get back to fiscal responsibility they will end up being owend by the Feds...........

California's problems are from bad fiscal policy, they are due to a legacy of a poor tax system put in from Prop 13 and a flood of immigrants coming to the state. The disparity of making it a bread basket state and one of the most expensive at the same time is tearing the state in two. The building boom hurt the state badly just like its conservative neighbors Arizona and Nevada that are both in just as dire situations. California's problems are just compounded and more similar to Florida's problem of being a snowbird state. After living there I really think the state is unmanagable like an unprofitable business. It needs to split up into 3 states to be reflective of the disparity that exists in the economy.
