The survey found that, unsurprisingly, 53 percent of 700 likely voters are supporting the Giants in the World Series. Only 15 percent are backing the Texas Rangers.
More interesting, Giants fans are breaking Democratic. They back Democrat Jerry Brown
over Republican Meg Whitman
governor by a 56 percent to 32 percent margin. And they also back Sen. Barbara Boxer
(D) over Republican Carly Fiorina
by a 59 percent to 33 percent margin.
The small contingent of Rangers fans, meanwhile, back Whitman over Brown by a 51 percent to 29 percent margin in the governor's race and Fiorina over Boxer by a 57 percent to 32 percent margin in the Senate contest.

The NFL Caucus:
And while we're on the sports kick, here's a tidbit to keep in mind as the results come in Tuesday night. In 1994, NFL star Steve Largent
(R-Okla.) was swept into Congress in the Republican wave. In the next wave election when Democrats gained majorities in 2006, former Washington Redskins quarterback Heath Shuler
(D-N.C.) came to Congress. Who could the NFLer be this year? Former Philadelphia Eagles tackle Jon Runyan
(R) who is in a too close to call race with Adler in New Jersey's 3rd District.
