Pardon me while I trumpet our poll’s accuracy.
According to the secretary of state’s office, the semi-official results of the races for governor and the U.S. Senate give Jerry Brown a 12-point victory over Meg Whitman and Sen. Barbara Boxer a 9-point edge over Carly Fiorina in the Nov. 2 elections.
As has been reported, of the 14 pre-election polls released within 10 days of the vote, the two that came closest to predicting the actual outcomes were the USC College/Los Angeles Times and Field polls. The most accurate poll on the top two races was the USC/L.A. Times October poll, which had Brown 13 points ahead and Boxer up by 8 points.
