Tuesday’s campaign round-up


Today’s installment of campaign-related news items that won’t necessarily generate a post of their own, but may be of interest to political observers:

* The final Latino Decisions tracking poll shows President Obama leading Mitt Romney among Latino voters by nearly 50 points, 73% to 24%. Four years ago, John McCain lost Latino voters by 36 points.

* Vice President Biden voted this morning in his home state of Delaware. On his way out, a reporter asked if this is the last time he expects to vote for himself. Take a look at Biden’s response.

* Traditionally, presidential candidates do not campaign on Election Day, but Romney will make last-minute appeals at events in Ohio and Pennsylvania today.

* In Arizona, some Democratic voters received robocalls from Jeff Flake’s Republican Senate campaign, directing them to the wrong voting precinct.

* As for Flake’s race, Public Policy Polling shows Flake leading Richard Carmona (D) by five, 51% to 46%. In early October, Carmona led by two, but Republican voters have since rallied behind the congressman.

* In Connecticut, Republican Senate hopeful Linda McMahon’s campaign is distributing sample ballots that make it seem as if she and President Obama are on the same side.

* And in Pennsylvania, Republican activists were standing outside polling locations, asking some voters to produce identification. An Allegheny County judge issued an order this morning, putting a stop to the practice. The judge’s order said: “Individuals outside the polls are prohibited from questioning, obstructing, interrogating or asking about any form of identification and/demanding any form of identification from any prospective voter.”
