Monday’s Campaign Round-Up, 9.14.15

Today’s installment of campaign-related news items from across the country.
 
* Donald Trump has said he expects to win the Latino vote, but the latest MSNBC/Telemundo/Marist poll released Friday shows Latino voters preferring Hillary Clinton by a three-to-one margin, 69% to 22%.
 
* The latest CBS News/YouGov poll, conducted over the internet, shows Donald Trump with big leads over the Republican field in the first three nominating contests: Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina.
 
* The same CBS News/YouGov poll, again conducted entirely online, shows Bernie Sanders with double-digit leads in Iowa and New Hampshire, though Hillary Clinton has a big advantage in South Carolina.
 
* Scott Walker, hoping to get his faltering presidential campaign back on track, is going after labor unions with a vengeance, formally unveiling a new, national anti-union agenda today.
 
* In related news, Walker was scheduled to make appearances this weekend in Michigan and California, but those events have been canceled “so that he can instead spend time meeting voters in South Carolina and Iowa.”
 
* In California, a new L.A. Times poll shows Donald Trump and Ben Carson leading the GOP field with 24% and 18%, respectively, while Clinton leads Sanders in the California, 39% to 23%.
 
* On a related note, as part of the statewide survey, a 57-year-old Trump supporter told the Times, “I grew up with blacks; I’m cool with them. What I’m not OK with is everywhere you go it’s brown people, everywhere you go.”
 
* Trump has now given a timeline for his mass deportation plan: he believes he can track down, detain, and remove 12 million immigrants from the United States within two years.
 
* And Chris Christie appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” yesterday and was asked about recent reports that yet another top member of his team may soon face a criminal indictment. “Let’s stop reading the newspapers,” the scandal-plagued governor told host Chuck Todd.
