new iowa poll puts bernie sanders within striking distance. will 2016 be the year of the outside candidates? plus -- >> popcorn with movie. >> i'm getting ready to watch a video. >> really? what? >> just some scary movie. >> do you like scary movies? >> uh-huh. >> what's your favorite scary movie? >> i don't know. >> you have to have a favorite. what comes to mind? >> we'll look back on some very scary movies as we remember the life of iconic horror movie master mind wes craven. it's 5:30 on the east coast, 2:30 out west and this is "way too early."
good morning, everybody. it's monday, august 31st. i'm amy holmes. we begin with presidential politics. a new poll from iowa shows trump has completely transformed his perception among the early nominating states likely republican caucusgoers. bloomberg politics des moines register poll finds trump leading the field with 23%. ben carson is just 5 points behind, nearly within the poll's margin of error at 18%. far behind both of them are senator ted cruz and governor scott walker. carson tops iowa republicans second choice and when they're first and second choices are combined carson and trump tie at 32%. outsider rise is best explained by congress. as for trump 61% of iowa republicans hold a favorable
opinion of him now, more than doubling his standing in may and over the weekend donald trump gave a preview of what the general election might look like with a scathing attack on trusted aide to hillary clinton. it happened at a donor gathering outside boston which, despite signs saying to make checks payable to his campaign, the front-runner insisted it was not a fund-raiser. >> we are -- i guess they're paying for some of the basics in terms here. we have food. i guess 1,500 or 2,000 people. this is not a fund-raiser. we're not doing anything in terms of fund-raising. >> what about the checks payable to you? >> many people are coming in. they can pay whatever they want but i think they're doing something to offset the food. but this is not a fund-raiser. >> taking aim at huma abedeen saying she's at the center of the e-mail scandal and had
choice words for her husband. >> it all sort of came through huma. who is huma married to? one of the great sleaze bags of our time. anthony weiner. did you know that? she's married to anthony weiner. you know, the little bing, bing, bing. bong, bong -- i love you very much. do you think there's a 5% chance she's not telling anthony weiner now with a public relations firm what the hell is coming across? do you think there's even a little bit of a chance? i don't think so. are there any women in this room who are in love with their husbands who wouldn't be telling them everything? you would or wouldn't? she said i wouldn't but i'm in love. no, you will. >> the clinton campaign responded saying, quote, donald trump has spent the summer saying offensive things about women. but there is no place for patently false, personal attacks toward a staff member. he should be ashamed of himself.
and others in his own party should take a moment to stand up to him and draw the line for once. it's embarrassing to watch frankly. republican governor chris christie is the latest hopeful to come under criticism for an immigration policy proposal. he generated headlines saturday during a town hall in new hampshire after he suggested that the government should track immigrants ear in the united states like fedex tracks packages. >> and at any moment fedex can tell you where that package is. it's on the truck. it's at the station. it's on the airplane. it's back at another station. it's back on the truck. it's at her doorstep. she just signed for it. yet people come to this country with visas and the minute they come in, we lose track of them. we can't -- so here's what i'm going to do as president. i'm going to ask fred smith founder of fedex, come work for
the government for three months. we need a system that tracks you from the moment you come in. when your time is up, whether it's three months, six months, nine months, 12 months, however long your visa is, we go get you and tap you on the shoulder and say, excuse me, thaunnks for coming. time to go. >> he doubled down on the plan yesterday. >> my point was this was a situation where the private sector laps us in the government with the use of technology. let's use the same type of technology to make sure that 40% of the 11 million people here illegally don't overstay their visas. if fedex can do it, why can't we? >> you don't have a number, a label on their wrist. >> we can do it and bring in the folks from fedex to bring in the technology to do that. there's nothing wrong with that. and i don't mean people are packages so let's not be ridiculous. bernie sanders suddenly within striking distance of hillary clinton in iowa. bloomberg politics poll, sanders
trails clinton by just 7%, 37% to 30%. in may he trailed more than 40 points. clinton is below 50% of this poll for the first time all cycle. here is the vermont senator talking about his iowa surge yesterday. >> i don't know if her campaign is in trouble. our campaign is doing great. the gains that we are seeing and the enthusiasm and the huge crowds we are seeing this is not anti-hillary clinton. this is pro bernie sanders and pro a message that says enough enough. this country and our government belong to all of us not just a handful of very wealthy people. >> meanwhile 61% of iowa democrats say the controversy surrounding clinton's use of private e-mail as secretary of state is not important to them. while just 10% say it's very important. now let's turn to business. it's a new week. we can already feel the anxiety after last week's roller coaster
ride on wall street and across the globe. u.s. futures aren't looking so good either. steve cedric joins us live from london. steve, what are investors watching this morning? >> well, they're watching china, of course. china was down again in session, neared flatline by the close of trading. they'll crack down on those they believe are destabilizing the market. it noelt it they fell 7.9% last week. but the dow is on course of having its worst month in three years. now the futures are pulling us down on the s&p, .8% on the nasdaq. lots to account for in the states, big numbers on factory output, trade and key payroll figures at the end of the week. people have been worried very
much about china and concern about the slowdown of this economy it's as much, i think, of actually when the u.s. gets its first rate hike as well. in wyoming over the weekend we heard stanley fisher saying, look, we cannot be asleep. he's saying maybe a september rate hike in the united states is still on the cards. that's what many people in the markets have been very concerned about. that leads to a stronger dollar which hurts some of the earnings of the big u.s. companies. all kinds of other countries as well. twin fear force the market remaining this week. one is china and the second is the fed. we'll get a lot of implications -- indications of when the fed will raise rates this week when we get all that data coming out. at the moment it's not looking too good at the start of the trading week. back to you. >> steve sedgwick from on done. thank you. now to the latest in the execution-style killing of a sheriff's deputy in texas. more than 1,000 people descended upon the gas station in cyprus
where the officer was gunned down. shannon miles is charged with capital murder and is expected in court later this morning for an arraignment. his more says he can't be the gunman because he was out shopping with her at the time of the shooting. at this time ten years ago, new orleans and the gulf coast was dealing with the brutal aftermath of hurricane katrina. the tenth anniversary of the storm's land fall was marked saturday with a ceremony at the memorial that houses unclaimed and unidentified katrina victims. they celebrated the rebuilding efforts with a parade in the same neighborhood where the levies gave way. president bill clinton speaking on saturday and urging leaders to make sure the recovery is fair and felt by everyone. >> you've got a lot to celebrate tonight. the celebration must be leavened by rededication. the people who died left behind
memories and loved ones and legacies that deserve to be fully redeemed. by erasing the lines that divide us. >> the new orleans saints also commemorated the anniversary wearing the katrina "x" symbols on their jerseys at the super dome. 300 refugees arrived in greece last night. the day before about 4,000 more refer ewegys arrived on a greek island. many, however, aren't that lucky. a ship near libya sank killing at least 30. late last week another boat sank there, killing an estimated 200 people. five people have been arrested in connection with the deaths of more than 70 migrants found dead in a refrigerated truck in
austria. those who do make it try to make their way to central europe. countries like hungary are putting up a razor wire fence to keep their border secure. >> explosives to blow up part of a temple in the agent city of palmyra. telling the associated press it was total destruction. calling it, quote, an explosion the deaf would hear. in act the u.n. has called a war crime. nearly two weeks after the group beheaded an esteemed archaeologist who looked after palmyra's ruins for decades. still ahead on "way too early" dodgers on the wrong side of a no-hitter for the second time this month. more on the right-hander who put them on the wrong side of history.
