tv Erin Burnett Out Front CNN January 19, 2016 4:00pm-5:01pm PST
yeah. like you guys haven't tried to do that every day since that night in 08 when i was on stage nominated for vp and i got to say yeah, i'll go. send me. you bet cha, i'll serve. and like you all i'm still standing. so those of us who have gone through the ringer as mr. trump has makes me respect you even more that you're here and you're putting your efforts and you're putting reputations, you are putting relationships on the line to do the right thing for this country because you are ready to make america great again. well, i am here because like you, i know that it is now or never. i'm in it to win it because we believe in america and we love our freedom and if you love your freedom, thank a vet.
thank a vet and know that the united states military deserves a commander in chief who loves our country passionately and will never apologize for this country. a new commander in chief who will never leave our men behind. a new commander in chief, one who will never lie to the families of the fallen. i'm in it because just last week suffer and be hue mill appreciated on a world stage in the hands of the iranians because of a weak need and chief has decided that america will lead from behind and he who would negotiate deals, kind of like with the skills of a
community organizer, maybe organizing a neighborhood tea, well, he deciding that no america would apologize and as part of the deal, as the enemy sends a message to the rest of the world that they capture and we cow tail and apologize and we bend over and say thank you, enemy. we are ready for a change. we are ready and our troops deserve the best. a new commander in chief whose track record of success has proven he is the master at the art of the deal. he is one who negotiates. only one candidate's record of success proves he is the master of the art of the deal. he is beholding to no one but we the people. how refreshing. he's perfectly positioned to let you make america great again. are you ready for that, iowa?
no more pastyt footing around. our troops deserve the best. you deserve the best. he is from the private sector, not a politician. can i get a alleluia. where in the private sector you have to balance budgets in order to prioritize to keep the main thing the main thing and he knows the main thing, a president is to keep us safe economically and militarily. he knows the main thing and he knows how to lead the charge so troops hang in there because help's on the way because he better than anyone, isn't he known for being able to command fire. are you ready for a commander in chief? you're ready for a commander in chief that will let their warriors do their job and go
kick isis' ass. ready for someone who will secure our boarders, to secure our jobs and secure our homes. ready to make america great again. are you ready to stump for trump? i'm here to support the next president of the united states, donald trump. now, eight years ago, i warned that obama's promised fundamental transformation of america was going to take more from you and leave america weaker on the world stage and we would soon be unrecognizable. well, it's one promise that obama kept but he didn't do it alone and this is important to remember. especially those of you like me, a member of the g.o.p. this is what we have to remember in this very contested, competitive great primary race. trump's candidacy, it has exposed not just that tragic
remember if ramifications of detrail -- ou but he has enabled this. trump, what he's been able to do which is really ticking people off which i'm glad about, he's going rogue left and right, man. that's why he's doing so well. he's been able to tear the bill off this idea of the system. the way that the system really works. i want you to hear me on this. i want you to understand how the system, the establishment works and has gotten us into the troubles we're in in america. the permanent political class has been doing the bidding of their campaign donor class and that's why you see that the boarders are kept open for them, for their cheap labor that they want to come in.
that's why they've been bloating budgets. it's for capitalist to be able to suck off them. it's why we see the lousy trade deals that gut our industry for special interest elsewhere. we need someone new whose in the position to bust up that establishment, to make things great again. it's part of the problem. h his candidacy which is a movement, a force, a strategy, it proves as long as the politicals get to keep their titles and perks and reigns, they don't really care who wins elections. believe me on this. the proof of this, look what's happening today our own g.o.p. machine, the establishment action they would who assemble the political landscape are attacking their own front runner. now, would the left ever, would
the dnc ever come after their front runner and her supporters? no. they don't eat their own. they don't self-detract. for the gop establishment to be coming after donald trump supporters even with accusations that are so false, they are so busted with the way this thing works. we, you, a diverse, dynamic, needed support base they would attack and now some of them whispering, they're ready to throw in for hillary over trump because they can't afford to see the status quo go otherwise they won't be able to slurping off the gravy train that's been feeding them all these years. they don't want to that end. oh and then funny, haha, not funny. now what they're doing is well, trump and his trumpetors are not conservative enough. oh my goodness gracious.
what the heck would the establishment know about the conservati conservati conservatism? tell me, is this conservative? g.o.p. majorities, handing obama a blank check to fund obamacare and planned parent hood and illegal immigration that competes for your jobs and turning safety nets into hammocks and all these new democrat voters that are going to be coming on over the boarder as we keep the borders open and children millions in new debt and refusing to fight back for our sovereignty even though that's why we elected them in a majority to d.c. no. if they're not willing to do that, how are they to tell us we're not able to make these changes in america we know need to be made?
now they're concerned about the idea logical purity. give me a break. who are they to say that. oh and tell somebody like phyllis, she is the republican conservative movement icon and hero and a trump supporter. tell her she's not conservative enough. how about the rest of us? right wing and bitter clinging crowd clingers over our guns and religions and tell us we're not ready enough. yeah, coming from the establishment, right. well, he, being the only one whose been willing, he's got to guts to wear the issues that need to be spoken about and debated on his sleeve. some of these establishment candidates wanted to dump and hide and not talk about the issues until he brought them up. they've been wearing this political correctness that looks like a suicide vest.
enough is enough. these issues donald trump talks about had to be debated and he brought them to the forefront and that's why we are where we are today with good discussion, a good heated and very competitive primary is where we are. you guys are sounding angry is what we're hearing from the establishment. they stomp on our neck and tell us to chill. just relax. well, look, we are mad and we've been had. they need to get use to it. this election is more than just your basic abcs. anybody but clinton. it's more than that this go around. when we're talking about a nation without borders and
bankrupties and our federal government, debt our children and grand children will never be able to pay off. when we're talking about the power that comes from strength, power through strength, well then we're talking about our very existence. no, we're not going to chill. it's time to drill, baby, drill down and hold these folks accountable and we need to stop the self-sabotage and elect a candidate that represents that and america first, finally. proconstitution. common sense solutions he brings to the table. yes, the status quo has got to go. with their failed agenda, it can't be salvaged, it must be savaged and donald trump is the one to do that. are you ready for new and are you ready for the leader who
will let you make america great again? it's going to take a whole team. it's going to take a whole team. fighters, all of us in the private sector. fighters in the house and senate. so our friends who are fighters in the house and senate today, they need to stay there and help out. they can help our new leader and the positions they are in. let me say something really positive about one of those individuals. rand paul. i'm going to tell you about that lib ri tarn streak in him that's healthy. he knows you only go to war if you're determined to win the war and you quit fitting the bill these nations who are oil rich we're paying for some of their squirmishes that have been going on for centurys where they're fighting each other and yelling and calling jihad on each
other's heads forever and ever. like i said before. let them duke it out and let allah sort it out. we'll fight for american interest and as donald trump said, other nations where we have been fitting the bill. we haven't prioritized our own domestic bugets to be able to afford what we're doing overseas. things are going to change under president trump so we can be an unbeatable team with fighters there in the house and senate. yeah, our leader is a little bit different. he's a multibillionaire. not that there's anything wrong with that. but it's amazing. he is not a leadiest at all. i hope you all get to know him more and more as a person and family man and what he's been able to accomplish. it's kind of a quiet generosity.
may maybe his compassion gets in the way of it but as you know him as a person and get to know him more and more you'll have more respect not just because of his record of success and contentions for america but who he is as a person. he's not a leadest. as a multibillionaire, we still root him on because he roots us on. he spent his life with the working man and tells us joe six packs, he tells us i worked very, very hard and i've succeeded. hugely, i've succeeded he says and i want you to succeed too. that is refreshing because he as he buildings things, he builds big things, things that touch the sky, big infrastructure that puts other people to work. he has spent his life looking up and respecting the hard hats and the steel toed boots and work
ethic you all have within you. he being an optimist, passionate about equal opportunity to work. the self-made success of his, you know he doesn't get his power, his high off of opium. other people's money like a lot of dopes in washington do. they're addicted to opium where they take other people's money and their high is getting to redistribute it and then they get to be really popular people when they get to give out your hard money. well, he doesn't do that. his power, his passion, it's the fabric of america. it's woven by work ethic and dreams and drive and faith in the almighty. what a combination. are you ready to share in that again, iowa? that's going to let you make america great again. he's going to be able to empower you to look out for one another
again instead of relying on a bankrupt government to supposedly be looking out for you. and iowa, i believe too that you are ready to see that the vets are treated better than the illegal immigrants are treated better in this country. you are ready for the tax reform. you are ready to stop the race baiting and division based on color and zip code to unify around the right issues. those things are unifying values and they're time. from the big apple to the big
beautiful heartland in between. now, finally, friends, i want you to try to picture this. it's a nice thing to picture, exactly one year from tomorrow former president barack obama, he packs up the tell prompters and the selfie sticks and the greek columns and all that stuff and heads on back to s-- chicag. then he can look up and there over his head he'll be able to see that shining, towering trump tower. yes, barack obama, he built that and that says a lot. iowa, you say a lot being here
tonight supporting the right man who will allow you to make america great again. god bless you. god bless the united states of america and our next president of the united states donald j. trump. [ applause ] >> we're going to give em hell. i just want to thank sarah. just really amazing people. this is a woman from day one, i said if i'm going to do this, i have to get her support. she feels it and understands better than anybody. on behalf of myself, my family and the country, i want to thank you very much. thank you , darling. thank you. >> all right. you just heard sarah palin
giving her endorsement for donald trump. that was a pretty rif voting speech. zinger after zinger, one liner after one liner. that was something else to watch. that is something donald trump hopes turn the tide in the state of iowa. you heard him bring in his faith of the almighty. i want to go straight to the co-chair for the cruz campaign jeff lord who served for the white house political analyst and gloria. do you agree with my assessment? that was sarah palin at the best she can be to the people who love to see her. >> right. it was de ja vu all over again if you can recall her speech at the mccain convention. this time she did two things. it was an ode to donald trump
for the evangelicals and conservatives who might have questions about trump say verses ted cruz and it was a complete disof the republican establishment and that is always attractive to republican based voters. particularly, iowa caucus goers. she said the establishment has been so busted as she put it and that donald trump is going to take on the establishment. she talked about the dopes in washington. she gave a little shout out to rand paul. she reminded people in iowa that donald trump may be rich but he's not a leadest. he is on your side. she checked every box she had to check. jeff lord, we're sitting here nodding. you were chuckling and laughing during part of it. that's what's repelling. she reprized some of her old favorite lines and called him a rogue and made her comments. she can be salty at times and
also laughed at donald trump at one point. you know what i mean, it's going to be huge. she had the ability to do that. >> she did a very, very good speech. this audience, her speech was directed primarily at the conservative audience and that is particularly important considering the flak that donald trump has gotten the past few days from rush limbaugh. sarah palin is an antidote to that. i think she can help a lot. the second thing is the establishment critique. that is a huge issue with a lot of republicans. her critique on that, it was pretty skaifing. that frankly is the kind of thing you do here. that's a lot of things you hear with grass roots republicans. squl what do you say, bob? you're sitting there on the ted cruz side of things. sarah palin endorsed ted cruz
for senate, something he called game changing saying he wouldn't be in the senate without it. she's now coming out in the iowa caucus endorsing donald trump. this is a very big moment. first of all, would you agree that this speech was what that audience wanted? >> well, sarah palin does give a good speech and it's a good endorsement for donald trump. we like sarah palin. when it comes down to the iowa caucuses a week from monday night, the iowa voter rs very independent and savvy and usually don't let people tell them who to vote for. they're assessing the candidates and i would say with ted cruz being in first or second place with over 50% of the iowa caucus goers, he's in great shape to perform on february 1st. we know this race is going to go down to the wire and i think people are going to be drawn the
ted cruz. >> what do you think, gloria, it was when it came down to it for sarah palin that made her choose donald trump over ted cruz, given that she's endorsed ted cruz so publicly last time around when he ran for senate? >> it's hard to say. maybe because ted cruz complains about washington and he's in washington. maybe the fact he's in the united states senate. i think she likes ted cruz an awful lot and i don't think she's going to go out there and say ted cruz is a terrible guy. >> which she didn't do. she didn't go after ted cruz specifically. >> she did not. she went after the establishment. she's going to be very pro-trump. she summarized it when she said we are mad, we've been had. that is a sense of republican based party voters.
they are mad as hell and not going to take it anymore. i think it's a little of sleb ri and sleb ri. he said to her, you're hired because they're a little bit alike. >> that's true. to gloria's point when she talked about washington and the whole system it cannot be salvaged, it can be savaged. there was nothing wrong with it but you have donald trump standing on the side and at the end he goes and they're standing together and it almost looked like a vice president sort of thing. obviously, this is an endorsement, not that. but what role is she going to have? >> she's expressing interest in being secretary of energy. i think she would be a good secretary of energy. we are dealing with somebody who does the art of the deal. i don't know. i mean, she genuinely believes
what she believes here and she's a genuine conservative. she's quiet passionate about this. i don't think she's that cynical. if something came her way which would be likely in the trump administration and frankly in the cruz administration. she might consider it. i believe she does this for principle. she's in it for her believes. >> thank you all three very much. much more on tonight's breaking news. donald trump's bomb shell announcement, sarah palin's endorsement. trump's son is live out front with me next. breaking news. protesters gathering in michigan calling for the governor to resign. we'll be back in a moment talking about the toxic water. huh. introducing centrum vitamints. a brand new multivitamin you enjoy like a mint. with a full spectrum of essential nutrients...
surprisingly smooth, refreshingly cool. i see you found the vitamints. new centrum vitamints. a delicious new way to get your multivitamins. this is lloyd. to prove to you that the better choice for him is aleve. he's agreed to give it up. ok, but i have 30 acres to cover by sundown. we'll be with him all day as he goes back to taking tylenol. yeah, i was ok, but after lunch my knee started hurting again so... more pills. yep... another pill stop. can i get my aleve back yet? for my pain... i want my aleve. get all day minor arthritis pain relief with an easy open cap.
without her. it would be a wake up call to the influential wake up voterinvoters in iowa. up front now, a family research counsel and founder and chairman of the freedom. palin's brand among evangelicals is as gold as the faucets in trump tower. how big of a deal is the speech we just saw? >> i think it's a very big deal. sarah palin is highly respected and very well regarded by evangelicals and tea party activists and by grass roots conservatives and the republican party. as you pointed out, she played a critical roll in ted cruz's
election by his own testimony. she was the jet speed oil that really caused nikki hay lee to break off tackle in a very crowded primary in south carolina when she ran for governor. it was in single digits. she did the same thing for marco rubio in florida. obviously, you have to give credit to the candidates as well in their campaigns. look, i don't think endorsements alone are going to lead to victory for anybody. particularly, for donald trump who is underperformed for the voters, especially in iowa, she's an important validating voice. >> you just heard him talking about ted cruz. according to ted cruz, he said that's why he's in the senate. he's been slamming donald trump for new york values he described as money and media and being socially liberal. sarah palin took that head on and here's exactly what she said about donald trump not being a
leadist. >> dog gone right we're angry, justifiably so. yes. you know they stomp on our neck and they tell us just chill. okay. just relax. well, look, we are mad and we've been had. they need to get use to it. this election is more than just your basic basic abcs, anybody clinton. it's more than that this go around. he is not a leadist at all. i just hope you all get to know him more and more as a person and family man and what he's been able to accomplish and with his, it's kind of this quiet generosity, yeah, maybe his -- gets in the way of the quiet generosity and compassion. as you get to know him as a person you'll have more respect not just for the record of his
success but who he is as a person. >> tony, you have spoken out positive things about ted cruz, are you reconsidering? are you now still thinking about donald trump when you hear things like sarah palin just said about him as a person? >> well, i have not made an endorsement in the race and have not decided. to ralph's point, i think this is an important endorsement to trump. i don't know about the gold in trump towers, i've never seen them. i think for the evangelical voters, there's some values. how important is the endorsement? it's important if you're the one getting it. i think for the voters still on the fence, it has an effect. although, what we're seeing happening is more and more voters are choosing their sides and that obviously, comes down to the caucus day, i think she could be very helpful for him in getting unattached voters or undecided voters at this point. >> ben, what do you think?
you've been vocally, positive, ted cruz, how big of a deal is this for donald trump? >> i think it's a big deal specifically today after the issues that he had at liberty university. this changes the conversation. he had a problem with the evangelicals today when he was quoting two -- some said that's the worst form of panderring they've ever seen in a primary. i think this is going to help change the narrative. the other is look, if for some reason they call the second amendment two amendment, sarah palin can bail him out there on guns as well. i don't think voters, however, are going to trump all the sudden from ted cruz or another candidate into this. they're smart voters. iowa voters are very well ed
educated and smart. yes, it's going to help him, yes, it changes the headline. >> how excited are you? did ben poor enough water on your parade? >> i would like to point out it won't be a bust. she has a strong base of support and they trust her. this endorsement isn't just important because it's sarah palin. it's important because of another woman highly respected
and in the conservative circles alike. >> she's very as she is and her fan's enduring. her haterins find it awful. she said no more pastyt footing around. here's what she had to say about what's going on in the middle east. we'll fight for american intere interest. >> is that going to resinate or turn people off? >> this is the election cycle where she did tap in about the anti establishment. poo people are fed up with the politics as usual. i think she was really going
beyond the evangelicals although this is what attracted them to donald trump so much. he is refusing to be silenced. there's a society today that's attacked every time they speak something called the bigots. it's the evangelicals. they don't agree with him on everything. they agree with the fact he's speaking up. >> more on the breaking news, donald trump's bomb shell announcement, sarah palin's endorsement. breaking news, a new cnn poll showing bernie sanders crushing hillary clinton in new hampshire. her campaign spokesman going to talk about it here out front tonight. ike me, and you're talking to your rheumatologist
about a biologic... this is humira. this is humira helping to relieve my pain and protect my joints from further damage. this is humira giving me new perspective. doctors have been prescribing humira for ten years. humira works for many adults. it targets and helps to block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to ra symptoms. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened, as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. talk to your doctor and visit humira.com this is humira at work i've been blind since birth. i go through periods where it's hard to sleep at night,
and stay awake during the day. learn about non-24 by calling 844-844-2424. or visit my24info.com. you know the symptoms when they start. abdominal pain. urgent diarrhea. now there's prescription xifaxan. xifaxan is a new ibs-d treatment that helps relieve your diarrhea and abdominal pain symptoms. and xifaxan works differently. it's a prescription antibiotic that acts mainly in the digestive tract. do not use xifaxan if you have a history of sensitivity to rifaximin, rifamycin antibiotic agents, or any components of xifaxan. tell your doctor right away if your diarrhea worsens while taking xifaxan, as this may be a sign of a serious or even fatal condition. tell your doctor if you have liver disease or are taking other medications, because these may increase the amount of xifaxan in your body. tell your doctor if you are pregnant, plan on becoming pregnant, or are nursing.
the most common side effects are nausea and an increase in liver enzymes. if you think you have ibs with diarrhea, talk to your doctor about new xifaxan. two words: it heals.e different? how? with heat. unlike creams and rubs that mask the pain, thermacare has patented heat cells that penetrate deep to increase circulation and accelerate healing. let's review: heat, plus relief, plus healing, equals thermacare. the proof that it heals is you.
trump. >> are you ready for a commander in chief? you ready for a commander in chief that will let our warriors do their job and go kick isis' ass? ready for someone who will secure our boarders and secure our jobs and secure our homes? ready to make america great again. are you ready to stump for trump? >> this endorsement could give trump new momentum going into the caucuses which are now less than two weeks away. out front eric trump so you just heard sarah palin endorsing your father. how well do they know each other? >> well, how great was that, by the way? you can almost see that
charismatic side of her. she wasn't reading fromty tell prompter. i think they have a lot of similarities. she's gotten to know us, his family, his wife. she likes him and cares about him and believes he'll do a phenomenal job. i believe he would do a phenomenal job. >> you've met her. what do you think about their come r co come rodty? >> i think this is a major, major endorsement. everybody's been seeking her endorsement. she's got a lot of respect from a lot of different groups. she's kind of the anti establishment candidate. she's been hung over the fire so many times and i think my father has as well.
so many have tried to put her down over time and they've did the same with my father. even that last clip you played let's go kick isis' you know what. >> you can say it. it's cable. >> she thinks like my father. it's refreshing to tell you the truth. >> she did talk a bit about him. he's been accused for new york values like the money and the media. she talked about the leadest issue and here's how she addressed moments ago. >> he is not a leadist at all. i just hope you all get to know him more and more as a person and family man and what he's been able to accomplish and with his, it's kind of the quiet generosity, yeah, maybe his kind of some would say gets in the
way of that quiet generosity and his compassion but if you know him as a person and you'll get to know him more and more you'll have more respect not just for the record of his success but who he is as a person. >> and so obviously, that fits with the man you know. but how important was this for him to get her to say that? >> it's true he's not a leadist. he might be a wealthy guy whose done very well in the world and maybe he e pitmys the american dream. he'll go out, there's nothing he had rather do than grab a cheese burger with me. >> he loves mcdonald's. >> that's who heg he is. he's been struggling to connect with voters. he never seems totally comfortable talks about his
religion. t where the spirit of the lord is, there is liberty. >> i have a great relationship with god. i like to be good. i don't like to have to ask for forgiveness. i am good. i don't do a lot of things that are bad. when we go to clurj and when i drink my little wine which is about the only wine i drink and have my cracker, i guess that's a form of asking for forgiveness. >> what is the role faith play in your father's life? >> a big one. it's a personal role. everybody has different ways and some manifest it openly and some keep a bible next to their bed and do their own thing and he falls into that latter category. he's becoming more open about it. i laugh at that.
he's in front of a crowd of people and instepicking apart ad bite is foolish. faith means a lot to my father and he's a guy who is a very moral guy and a charitable guy and there's nobody who does more for charities than us and our family. he wants the best for this country and that's why he's doing this. he would not be sacrificing his life to go therough this proces. he cares about this deeply. >> thank you very much. good to see you again. next, a new cnn poll showing bernie sanders leading hillary clinton by a two to one margin.
the possibility of a flare swas almost always on my mind. thinking about what to avoid, where to go... and how to deal with my uc. to me, that was normal. until i talked to my doctor. she told me that humira helps people like me get uc under control and keep it under control when certain medications haven't worked well enough. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. raise your expectations. ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, control is possible. this just got interesting. so why pause to take a pill?

breaking news tonight, new poll, opening a 2-1 lead, sanders at 60%, clinton at 33%. that is in new hampshire. democratic race tightens both nationally and in those crucial early states the clinton team is facing a hard reality. her race against a surging bernie sanders could turn out to be a long, hard slog. joining me now, press secretary for the hillary for america campaign. a poll like this comes out today. hillary clinton losing to bernie sanders nearly 2-1 in the state of new hampshire. are you guys just going to give up on new hampshire and say, okay, we're going to write that one off. we're moving on.
>> not at all. i don't think we would dispute that bernie sanders is doing well in a lot of polls in new hampshire but i think even people at cnn would say this is an outlier. but no doubt that senator sanders is fairing well in a lot of polls, especially in new hampshire. as he has started to rise in the polls we're starting to see more scrutiny in his record of positions he has taken. with her turn in the spotlight over the last few weeks we've seen him prove rather unsteady, flip flop on a major gun vote on saturday right before the debate. he then rushed out two hours before the debate, rushed out a health care plan he had been holding back for weeks. once the details were out, a number of progressives have discredited it as short on details. and then at the debate itself, when the topic turned to foreign policy, he actually called for normalizing relations with iran. the campaign has refused to say whether that was a mistake or not. i would be interested to hear
somebody from the campaign walk that back. >> this poll i'm looking at, our cnn poll is swran 13th through 18th. it is up to the minute. >> here's what -- so as more scrutiny comes to senator sanders, he has more explaining to about a lot of his positions. at the end of the day, voters in iowa, new hampshire and beyond are going to consider who is the serious, substantive, seasoned person that can take the fight to the republicans not just in november but get things done as president. and the scene that just played out on this network a few moments ago will loom large, i think. sarah palin's endorsement is a huge coup for donald trump, no doubt about that. >> you do think that? >> it is causing a freakout in the republican party at large. that's why you're seeing the rnc starting to help prop up bernie sanders' candidacy. you see the top spokesman for the rnc saying they are rooting for senator sanders. they know the only thing that can save the republican party is if someone like donald trump gets nominated, with sarah
palin's endorsement that became a much higher possibility. they know only way he can win is if someone like bernie sanders emerges on the democratic side. >> respected polling group out of monmouth. headline, sanders cuts into the clinton lead. in this poll, clinton support drops from 59 to 52% if one month. sanders went from 26 to 37%. she dropped. he rose. that means a 33-point lead insurmountable a month ago is now 13. if you keep going on this trajectory, you're within a margin of error. >> hillary clinton has been through the ring er. she has been the singular focus of not just the democratic side but all candidates running for the republican nomination have been trying to attack her. >> they have been busy attacking donald trump. >> hardly. actually, most of them are trying to cater to his supporters. they've been going after hillary clinton in those debates. they try to one-up each other
with their voracity and attacks on hillary clinton. an untested person that has not gone through that scrutiny but is starting to is senator sanders. we'll see over the coming weeks if he can explain these plans that he has laid out on health care. he hasn't said how he would achieve a singer payer system. he couldn't even get a public option with an sbarly democratic congress. when it comes to something like reparations he dismisses it as completely unfeasible. >> would you acknowledge that that what chelsea clinton said, when she said he wanted to take away medicaid, is disingenuous or misleading? he wants universal health care. to imply he was getting rid of obamacare was a little bit off. wasn't it? >> actually, the proposal he put out sunday night two hours before the debate, all the concerns hillary clinton has been putting out for the past several weeks. she warned that what he was calling for would cost taxpayers
across the board. 90% tax increase, indeed, is there for working class people. then he had to switch his original plan that he introduce ed over the course of two decades in congress because it was state run. hillary clinton pointed out that would put people's health care at risk. so he switched that. quite crucially, he switched to a federally administered plan, acknowledging the point hillary clinton made. >> tough new poll out of new hampshire, and the national poll. we'll be right back. try alka-seltzer heartburn reliefchews. they work fast and don't taste chalky. mmm...amazing. i have heartburn. alka-seltzer heartburn reliefchews. enjoy the relief. you can fly across welcome town in minutes16, or across the globe in under an hour. whole communities are living on mars and solar satellites provide earth with unlimited clean power.
thank you so much for joining us "out front." "ac 360" starts right now. >> iowa caucuses since making mark. sarah palin is back and standing with donald trump. >> god bless you. god bless the united states of america and our next president of the united states, donald j. trump. >> endorsement came at a rally late today in ames, iowa. the two will campaign tomorrow. there are a lot of superlatives to describe on stage. the superlative you choose to describe the scene will probably
