-- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com will i get more votes? will i get less votes? look at all the cameras. this is like the academy awards. >> i kind of miss donald trump. he was like a teddy bear to me. >> i should have made a different choice because it's proven to be quite difficult.
3:01 am
>> if she's indicted we're not talking about taking a mattress tag off her mattress. >> the eyes of this country are going to be on iowa, and if we win this election, it's going to be a very, very close election. it will depend on voter turnout. >> it myou may be in a major, m state of depression. get up and vote. i will get rid of your depression. you will be happy. >> just a couple of days and counting. good morning, everybody. i'm christi paul. victor blackwell is in iowa the weekend before the final push. good morning to you, victor. >> good morning you do. good morning to you at home. it is a critical weekend in the race to the white house. two days until the iowa caucuses. now, the candidates, of course, are sprinting across the state today making their final pitch to voters. the state is really saturated with political events today.
3:02 am
political front-runner donald trump is holding three rallies in eastern iowa. look at this map. marco rubio will be as well. in a few hours, hillary clinton will rally with gabby giffords. bernie sanders holding a series of canvassing kickoff events on saturday with a rally and rock cop certificate in iowa city. for all of these white house contenders, time is running out. of course, the race the monday night. now just two days before the voters head out to caucus as the nation's true test hovers above iowa. >> i'd rather underpromise and overdeliver than the opposite. i want you to know what i intend to do and have you help me do it. >> democrat hillary clinton closed day with a rally
3:03 am
featuring her two biggest supporter, husband and former president bill clinton and daughter chelsea. >> we need a president who can restore broad-based prosperity and take us all along for the ride. >> reporter: bernie sanders holds a series of rallies before a concert in iowa city at night. >> i hope you come out and support my candidacy. the eyes of the country are going to be on iowa. >> reporter: on the other side donald trump and ted cruz continue their epic battle. >> ted cruz may not be a u.s. citizen, right? but he's an anchor baby. he's an anchor baby in canada. >> reporter: headline this week still impacting the race. >> mrs. clinton, what's your reaction? >> reporter: clinton's e-mail controversy continues to haunt
3:04 am
her on the kpanl trail. the state department said they will not release some of her e-mails. despite recent polls, other gop candidates are hoping to pull off a win. >> there's a reason why hillary clinton spent so much time and money and effort attacking me, because she doesn't want to run against me. >> i'm jeb! prut proud to be a bush. >> you know i'm serious about iowa because of one very, very important factor. i have brought with me the first lady of the state of new jersey. my wife mary pat is with me tonight. >> a rush to the finish line here. joining me now senior executive mark preston. turnout is everything. let's start with the republicans. donald trump is present. they say they're going to turn out voters who typically do not participate in the callout process. >> we see these crazy rallies.
3:05 am
on television, he's calling into question several. if you look at the polls, many of the people at these rallies, many of these voters would be first-time process-goers who have never done it. will they decide to come out monday and support him? if they do, he wins, if they don't, clearly he won't. >> have we seen some of the ground game? >> the question is does he have the ground game in place in order to get these voters out now remains to be seen because his operation while he has some very good people here, you know, running this state, we haven't necessarily seen that operation in place. now, you to the ted cruz folks, they say they have the ground game in place absolutely and that's what's going to propel them. you talk about these events. this is why it's so important what the message is today and tomorrow. if you go back to 2012, 46% of iowan republicans had not made
3:06 am
up their mind. when you get this close to the race, it's all about not messing up. >> bernie sanders has said for some time if the numbers show there is an increased turnout, heavy turnout for democrats on caucus night, that's good news for him. he said he's not going be able to replicate the obama code we saw back in 2008 but all the evidence shows he's get people into place. >> he said that because there have been so many comparisons. bernie sanders needs kids and he needs kids at these college universities. what's interesting is when obama ran back in 2008 it was at a time when the universities were out and the kids were home. they were able to draw all those kids back to come in and caucus and that was very helpful and why he won iowa. moving on bernie sanders has the universities in place and the kids are here. will they come out. if he has the enthusiasm and
3:07 am
enthusiasm translates into votes then bernie sanders has a good chance. >> let's stay with votes. the e-mail controversy with hillary clinton is growing. the state department said they're not going the release 22 e-mails when she was secretary of state because they contain top secret information. i should say there are 22 e-mails. the question issing if she sent them. dianne feinstein said she did not initiate knell of these seven e-mail chains. we have more on how the campaign is responding. >> reporter: victor, hillary clinton spoke in davenport, iowa, about the things that she wants to drive voters to the caucuses on monday night things like health care, things like climate change and affordable college. what she did not talk about was the issue that has been plaguing her campaign and really blew up in a they did not need friday night which is, of course, the state didn't is now with holding
3:08 am
almost two dozen e-mails because they say that they are classified in nature. now, the clinton campaign has said they want everything out in the open, that there's no reason to keep these classified. the ranking democrat on the intelligence committee said none of these e-mails originated from clinton and the fact that republicans are making a big deal out of this means it's just politicized. but at the end of the day, this is not something the clinton campaign wants to talk about. in fact, i tried to talk to hillary clinton when she was in the crowd with people here. i tried to ask her about her reaction to this. she clearly heard me, she didn't say anything. i also spoke to her husband who really rallied the crowd here beforehand, bill clinton. he also wanted to kind of take a step back. they realize that the more they talk about it, the more it feeds the story, the more it kind of keeps the news cycle go as opposed to other issues. i should also mention that
3:09 am
bernie sanders who, by the way, was having a rally not too far from here literally blocks where hillary clinton was speaking. he thinks that this should not be an issue for voters, but he also said that it's something that the legal process should take care of, a not so subtle suggestion and reminder that there is a legal issue going on right now for hillary clinton. so that was a little bit of a different tact for bernie sanders. victor? >> all right, dana, you're right. this is not something the clinton campaign wants to talk about. but secretary clinton did speak about this late friday with lester holt of nbc. watch. >> why shouldn't people, as they weigh the electability question, worry about this as it's hanging over your head as they march forward? >> because the facts remain the same. there was never any information sent or received that was marked classified to me. >> for people who are watching
3:10 am
this play out and know the republicans will come at you on this with an open investigation, shouldn't people have some concern? >> no, they shouldn't, lester. i just don't see it as anything that will in any way cause any voter to -- a voter with an open mound to have any concerns. >> the polls have shown that this is something that voters are concerned about. now, we'll speak about the polls in a moment. you know one person who's going to talk about it. donald trump. this tweet late friday. the new e-mail release is a disaster for hillary clinton. at a minimum, how can someone with such bad judgment be our next president? mark preston, polls show that democraters voters dmot see this as a major issue but it plays into trustworthiness and honesty. >> correct. it was very smart for bernie sanders to address this and say it's not a big issue. if you look at these polls, it's
3:11 am
the republicans and some independents now who are saying that hillary clinton's e-mail problems are a real problem. where this could potentially be a problem is when you get into the general election. if she were to become the nominee, we're talking into the summer now, i don't necessarily care what donald trump has to say or marco rubio has to say. what's going to be important is when we see the senate and they try to bring her up to capitol hill begin on this. that's when things could become explosive. >> we'll talk more about that this morning, mark preston. thank you. monday night comes down to this. the iowa caucuses here and we're all over it. we'll have complete coverage of the iowa caucus all day on monday on cnn. again, we showed you the map at the top of the show. it ooh going to be hard to go anywhere without seeing a presidential candidate, especially for the republicans who are battling for those votes
3:12 am
at the last minute. up next we'll take a look at the strategies the gop will be using to pull out those last-minute voters. also, he didn't do a lot of handshaking or kissing babies, you didn't see him in many coffee shops. the lack of that with donald trump does that change the way they approach campaigns in the future? >> i've seen hillary. heard i've seen bernie. heard hillary was around. i receive chris christie walk around a couple times actually. the future belongs to the fast. and to help you accelerate, we've created a new company... one totally focused on what's next for your business. the true partnership

♪ beautiful state of iowa and the countdown is on. take a look at the numbers here. donald trump, the front-runner. the likely iowa caucus-goers. the race is on who comes in second. ted cruz is trying to meet as many voters as possible as are all candidates. holding five events today. here's his map. meanwhile take a look at marco rubio's stops. yesterday's revelation that some of hillary clinton's e-mails will not be released because they contain top secret information. >> hillary clinton put some of the most highest and sensitive
3:17 am
intelligence information on her private server because maybe she thinks she's above the law or maybe she wants the convenience of being able to read this stuff on her blackberry. this is unacceptable. this is a disqualifier. if someone on my staff did that, you know what i would do? they would be fired and prosecuted. she should be disqualified just because of that. >> joining us now ron brownstein and back with us, mark preston. ron, i'm going to start with you since you're just joining us. >> yeah. >> we discussed last block that bernie sanders likely will not discuss the e-mail controversy because he says there's a legal process. doesn't have to because the republicans are going to do it. >> the republicans will do it and, in fact, people know about it. look. by itself it is not, contrary to marco rubio, it's not a disqualifier. it's clearly had an effect on
3:18 am
hillary clinton. the sense among democrats, do they want to go down the road of experiencing the '90s, the seemingly endless series of controversy. that sense of a cloud that is always there does give some democratic voters pause. >> okay. so we've talked about rubio v clinton. let's talk rubio v cruz. this was at least by the cruz campaign cast as a two-man race. that's not the case anymore. >> no, i think for two reasons. one, he looks at rub creeping up. they didn't think it was going to happen. what we've seen is quietly we see a little momentum behind marco rubio. he had a pretty good debate the other night and that's certainly helped him. ted cruz is hoping donald trump is flash in the pan and these huge rallies will not turn into
3:19 am
votes. and then where will they go. if they're not voting for jeb bush or john kasich or chris christie, who are they going to go to? will they go to mario? >> the chess game is so unbelievably complicated. the rubio team has said they prefer donald trump to win iowa. they think that would hobble cruz and they could get into a one-on-one kind of race. there's a be careful what you wish if. they think the best would be to have a two-front war, someone to his right and one to his center. to make it more complicated the lane that is open is the center right lane but it's a lane rubio really doesn't want to fill. he doesn't want to be seen as an equivalent to bush or kasich. he wants to be several clicks to the right. how this all sorts out is going to be fascinating in the next few weeks. >> if you go back to the senate
3:20 am
race, marco rubio was the tea party favorite. once he got the nomination, he started to morph into this establishment. he's walking a fine line. >> what is it? is it the trump lines of the canadian birth, the questions about ethanol, he believes he's better than the rest of us? >> first of all, cruz is more narrow casting to begin with. his goal is to consolidate the most conservative elements of the party. to begin with there's a more moderate centrist block that's difficult for him to access. if you add onto that the ethanol issues, the governor, criticizing him, and then you have donald trump kind of raising this kind of is he really one of us questions. and the last point, victor, and it's true here and it's going to

matter a lot in the south and in the midwest, donald trump's appeal extends across the evangelical boundary. he's winning evangelicals in the state. >> ron, mark stay with us all morning. we'll be with you to talk more about the republican rubio v cruz fight, and let's turn it back to christi paul. >> two are still on the loose and one is captured. where officials think the other two might be headed. also, the flint water crisis, even with filters, new testing shows dangerous levels of lead may still be seeping into people's homes this morning. how hard is it going to be to make flint's water safe to drink again and what's it going to take. you know the symptoms when they start. abdominal pain.

25 minutes past the hour. so glad to have you with us. listen. we have vaepg story that we're following. essentially one down, two more to go this hour this morning. authorities could be closer to having all three fugitives back behind bars in california. one of them turned himself in. we're talking about 43-year-old bac duong. an english teacher has been arrested for possibly helping the three escape. they escaped last week after cutting through bars and
3:26 am
propelling down a four-story wall using tied bed sheets. the big question this morning, the man who surrendered, is he cooperating with police to help find the other two? >> so far he is koomting and he could give key information that leads to the other two's arrest. ba bac duong. he's cooperating with authoriti authorities. they believe the three may have chosen a white 2008 gmv van. more details on that in just a minute. the key of the investigation, the center is focused in the northern california area 400 miles away from where the trea owe escaped. they believe the apparent ring ladder may have connections there. police talked about that at a press conference on friday. >> we believe there may be some associations of one of the suspects in the fresno area, so
3:27 am
we think there's a possibility they may be destined for that area. again, nothing specific. we're really concerned about the san jose area at this point. >> that white van was spotted outside a motel in the california area. duong told police they have tinted the windows, put on decals and changed the license plate and that they may be using the van, living in it and using it as the getaway vehicle. up next, cnn in iowa. what candidate is trying to sway as many voters as possible. we're taking a look at how the campaign has changed, the way they might campaign in iowa in the future and it's all because of the guy you saw right there, donald trump. also, really, how does the caucus work? we're going to break down the process for you. can a business have a mind?

3:32 am
politicking everyone is known for. eye to eye, hand to hand, face-to-face, coffee shops, living rooms. but donald trump, he likes the big speech. he likes to fill the auditoriums instead of the coffee shops and middle school gyms that other candidates are in. and now people are asking will the iowa campaign ever be the same after trump. >> thank you, dashen port. >> what a great crowd. thank you very much. >> reporter: in the final days before the presidential caucuses they're pouring into coffee shops, shaking hands, asking for support. it's the small-scale face-to-face familiarity that iowan treasure. >> you get to actually engage them one on one in a community forum where you can see how they really respond to individual communities and you get an actual feel of their realness.
3:33 am
>> i've seen bernie, i've heard that hillary comes through. wasn't here when she was here. i know chris christie was around. santorum has been walking around. i've seen him a couple of times actually. >> reporter: many have visited but not all. >> is there anybody notably who has not been here, who hasn't come through? >> i haven't seen trump. >> reporter: it's not just smoky row that donald trump has skipped. he's focused very little on the retail politicking. instead it's focused huge rallies across iowa making a case to voters thousands at a time. >> donald trump has totally thrown everything on his head. the fact he's had this fly in and fly out campaign, he's rarely spent any time in a primary caucus state. >> reporter: this week during an interview with cnn's wolf blitzer, he was very
3:34 am
complimentary of a holiday inn express in sioux city after a rare overnight stay. >> it was actually two nights. i thought it was terrific. it was clean, it was nice, and the bed was good. >> reporter: in the closing hours some wonder if a trump win will jeopardize the intimacy of campaigning here. >> his message seems to be coming out above everyone else's for impact. >> the bottom line is donald trump has changed politics as we know i. now, we could go back to the idea of this retail politics, the idea of shaking hands but it will give people pause about how they a will start campaigning. >> all right. here with me is ron brownstein and senior analyst for the "national journal." let's talk first about the strategy there. he's got big personality. he fills the room with thousands of people but that's not typically theaway. >> there was a classic "saturday
3:35 am
night live" sketch and that's what iowa voters have been accustomed too since the caucuses began in the 1907s. think we've been moving away from that. i think president obama in 2008 was a step in the right direction. what we're seeing is the intensity of the media coverage is so subfusing everywhere, if you look at the polls that came out last week, the nbc wall street marist polls, donald trump was virtually identical in iowa, new hampshire, and it's changing. having said that, organizations still matters in caucus state. >> is this going to be a permanent change? >> i'm not sure it's going to be a permanent challenge the way he did it in '08 or donald trump
3:36 am
did in this campaign. but i do think what's happening nationally, that's gone. we've gone from what used to be called the visit primary to national audition. everyone everywhere, that washes over every state. in a caucus state you do need an organization. i think the race is basically being push and pulled by the same national tides affecting it everywhere. >> let's talk about this national tide. you focused on a piece in your "national journal" this frustration with the government because that is the result. we're seeing the result of that frustration with the government. the truth is many of the plans that are being lauded on the campaign or proposed really have no chance because of deadlock. >> right. you don't have to go very far in iowa to run to the democrats who are frustrated that president obama didn't achieve more. they appreciate what he's done and they wish more had been done. in the republican race by far the dominant emotion is the frustration they didn't achieve
3:37 am
more in undoing what he did. you basically have a parallel set. it's rooted in the same reality. we have had unified control of government, one party controlling the white house and the sunset for the last 48 years. we had it for 58 of the 72 years before that. divided government is now routine and in kind of a default position where it's routine, it's difficult to see how many of the ideas, for example single parent health care by bernie sanders or the funding to support 12 million people from donald trumping it's difficult to see how you can push that through the existing system. of course, that's the core argument hillary clinton is making against bernie sanders. yes, you're promising a revolution. i can work to get more of our goals done in fact. >> let me talk about the flip side of that. the sanners supportelyin ernerns
3:38 am
sanders supporters. >> i think first of all obama's plans did push the boundary but they were well within, i think. they were not as far out or kind of temporary political possibility. don't forget also that democrats at that point ended up with 60 senate seats. they had 59 to start. this year, the best possible outcome is 51 or 52. >> very different landscape. >> and even bernie sanders when he talks about his political revolution and what he expects to come from it, even he doesn't say taking over the hoss. the reality is the next president is almost going to certainly face a divided government and i think that means that they're going to have to be come promiegss across party lines that things are going to get done that there's not a big applause line. >> all right. we'll see what the movement is on the last couple of days because we know historically this is when a lot of those

all right. it's the final saturday before the iowa caucuses. all of the months of campaigning and town halls and meetings with voters here coming down to monday night. of course, the multiple debates, they've shifted the debates several times, even the no-show by donald trump. the iowa caucuses start at 7:00 p.m. on monday nigetnight, offiy launching the rate. how do the caucuses work? well, tom foreman is here to debate. >> the iowa caucuses, this is what we've been leading up to all this time, and for the republicans it's a fairly simple matter. they show up on caucus night, they cast their ballots, and they count them. for the democrats, though, this
3:44 am
is a process. what that means is that hunl dreads of precincts all across the state will physically gather and divide up based on what candidates they support. so, for example forecast we had 100 democrats in one place and they divided among four different candidates, it might break out like this. now, if any candidate does not have at least 15% of the support in that room, that candidate is basically declared out of it. the voter, however, can either go home or they can start going to some of the other candidates out there, and that's when you get a lot of talk and horse trading and wheeling and dealing because everyone wants to walk away with the most support for his ore her candidate. once it's settled if tr night, that precinct will report as do hundreds of others where the math will be done. there will be a first real indication of how the delegates
3:45 am
will be divided and who is actually leading the pack for race on both sides to the white house. >> tom, thank you so much. the final hours of campaigning happening this weekend. and, of course, monday the big day. it all comes down to monday night. cnn is the place for caucus coverage. we'll be here all day with complete coverage up till the final vote is cast. be with us all day monday. let'ses l let's toss it back down to christi in atlanta. >> thank you. the residents of flint found out the filters they've been using to protect them from lead poisoning may not be working and the reason why, astonishing. also, the latest on the zika virus. will they be able to develop a vaccine for what experts are calling an epidemic.

information that they can use to protect themselves. >> well, and you just mentioned -- i mean you said something very key there, until the pipes are healed. what does -- what is the remedy? do those pipes all need to be upgrade and what is the timeline or cost for something like that? >> some of them clearly will need to be replaced. the lead service lines that go from the water to the home, many of those are lead. those will have to be replaced. that will take some time. but the initial fix is to have corrosion control applied to the water so they provide a coating to the inner portion of the pipe that prevents lead from leeching into the water. that was really the failure at the very outset that the state did not for whatever reason did not initiate corrosion control when they switched flint from the lake huron water to the highly corrosive flint river
3:52 am
water. that was the mistake they made despite warnings from the epa. they almost inexplicably famed to do so. they did not initiate control until december 8. so some of the data which dates back to december is a result of the fact that the process of using corrosion control which should have started at the vsh outset, even after this crisis became public, the state didn't ensure that it was taking place until the 8th of december. so it will be some time before that corrosion control is fully optimized and the water would be safe to drink. >> i want to ask about who is at fault and who most likely will pay the price. i do want to talk about something that is of up most importance. telling poppy harlow he wants to do whatever he can for the children of this crisis. let's listen to what he has to say. >> what do you want to say to
3:53 am
the parents of flint who have a child who's going to live with this? >> this is awful and our goal is to do whatever possible to minimize it to help support them. this should haven't happened. >> we've heard from doctors who say this kind of lead in young children cognitively is irreversible. we know the state is getting $80 mill from the government according to president obama who has freed that up. how prepared is the state to take care of these children and their needs for what could be a lifetime for them? >> if i can be blunt, the state's response has not even come close to the need so far. the $80 million that the federal government has supplied is for infrastructure support. the $28 million that the state of michigan has provided in part pays for the national guard that they've already deployed for temporary water. the state of michigan has a 575
3:54 am
million dollars budget surplus right now. they have a rainy day fund they could reach into right now. we need a commitment from the state to provide wraparound services for these kids. nutritional support, smaller class sizes. enrichment opportunities. all the things that any parent would do for their child. not just this year or next year but for a number of years to come. flint's a strong community and we can overcome this, we've been through a lot. but we need the resources from the people who did this to us in order to overcome it, and that's really what the state of michigan is morally on gated to do. >> i guess we'll wait and see legally what that's going to mean. congressman dan kildee, thank
3:55 am

7:00 on a saturday morning and always so grateful for your company. good morning. i'm christi paul. my cohort victor blackwell co r covering iowa. it feels a little lonely over here, but i know you've got a lot of work to do there. >> there is a lot of work do, christi. we'll take a look at the campaigns dashing across the state to get the last minute support. let's take a look at it. starting with the republicans, front runner donald trump. i mean you can barely make out all of this because there are so many stops on the campaign. trump holding three rallies in eastern iowa. his rallies, ted cruz and marco rubio will be hitting stops as
4:02 am
well. democratsing take a look at their map. in a few hours hillary clinton will be rallying with gabby giffords and her husband. bernie sanders holding a series of developments and ends with a rock concert in iowa city. for all of these white house contenders, time is running out for the race to the finish night monday night when the caucuses begin. now, just two days before voters head out to caucus. the nation's first true electoral test hovers above iowa and the final weekend push to get out their message. >> i'd rather underpromise and overdeliver than the opposite. i want you to know what i intend to do and have you help me do it. >> reporter: democrat hillary clinton to close the rally with two of her biggest supporters, former president bill clinton and her daughter chelsea. >> we need a president who can
4:03 am
take us on a broad based presidency and take us all along for the night. >> reporter: bernie sanders will end with a concert in iowa city. >> i hope you come out and giving thought to supporting my candidacy. the eyes of the country are going to be on iowa. >> reporter: on the other side donald trump and ted cruz continue their epic battle. >> ted cruz may not be a u.s. citizen, right? but he's an anchor baby. no, he's an anchor baby -- ted cruz is an anchor baby in canada. >> next week he may have a different position, but that's the position he's in. >> reporter: clinton's e-mail controversy continues to haunt her on the campaign trail. the state didn't said friday it will not release 22 e-mails because they contain top secret information. meanwhile ted cruz is coming off a rough debate, one that donald trump boycotted. and decide recent polls. other gop candidates are hoping
4:04 am
to pull off a win. >> there's a reason hillary clinton spent so much time and money and effort attacking me, because she doesn't want to run against me. >> i'm jeb and i'm proud -- i'm jeb! prout to be a bush. >> you know that i'm serious about iowa because of one very, very important factor. i have brought with me the first lady of the state of new jersey, my wife mary pat is with me tonight. >> all right. so this morning we are getting a clearer picture after that thursday night debate, the fallout or lack thereof for donald trump having skipped it. it's rt not proven to be the game-changer that some other candidates hoped it would be or predicted it would be. trum% is at the top of the latest cn polls, his rivals bracing for a trump win and planning for the aftermath, what to do next.
4:05 am
cnn reporter with us. what does it mean? >> it affects both of them. what you're seeing is a dramatic lowering of expectations. not just those two but marco rubio's camp as well. nobody wants to say a win or loss would be a death knell. they all say we're here to play the long game which is pretty remarkable if you're someone like jeb bush. back in june he knew where he wanted to be. ted cruz, they clearly want to win the state. they're relying on a pretty extensive ground operation, but they're looking over their shoulder. they're looking at them subplanting. he's dumping his final resources to stop marco rubio's rise.
4:06 am
you think you can eventually knock him out and become that alternative donald trump and marco rubio is campaigning for third place. they're all trying to be the donald trump alternative coming out of iowa. >> all right, manu, stay with us. we have news coming out late friday that the e-mail controversy is back again. chris frates in washington is joining us now. you have the voters' questions about honesty and trusting the campaign. >> that's exactly right. just yesterday the state department announced that it will not release 22 e-mails from former secretary of state hillary clinton because they contain top secret information. >> the documents are being upgraded at the request of the
4:07 am
intelligence community because they contain a category of top secret information. these documents were not marked classified as the time they were sent. they add that government bureaucrats are essentially overclass fig her e-mails. now, the state department has leased thousands of her e-mails that she kept on a private server while secretary of state and news that some of those won't be released comes days before the iowa caucuses and could serve ads a remind der of what some see as one of clinton's biggest weaknesses, that she can't be trusted. republicans, no surprise here, pounced on the news that she kept secret the private information on a private e-mail server. >> hillary clinton put some of the most highest sensitive intelligence information on her server because maybe she thinks she's above the law or maybe she wanted the screens to be able to
4:08 am
read the stuff on her blackberry. this is unacceptable. this is a disqualifier. >> so the clinton campaign says it opposes the state department's decision to hold back the e-mails. it's said it appears they've been overly classified and the campaign will pursue all the appropriate avenues to see that her e-mails are released in a manner consistent with her call last year and on a separate note, victor, the state didn't announced it would not release 18 e-mails between then secretary clinton and obama in order to protect the president's ability to receive and want advice, victor. >> chris frates in washington. thank you so much. let's bring into the conversation cnn political analyst ron brownstein and editor mark preston. i want to start with you. this is obviously red meat for republicans. polls show that most of the
4:09 am
democrats don't really see this as a major issue. >> it's far less important to the democratic primary, but i do think there is a sense among some democratic voters that there's a hesitation about going down the road, of another clinton candidacy that would embroil the party in a series of ethical controversy. there is clinton fatigue in the democratic party. that's it. the e-mail that you really -- so many issues from the '90s with the republicans bringing them up. i don't think it's a bigweight on her in the democratic party. it clearly is affecting her standing with the general public. she can survive it but it's not inconsequential either. >> let's talk about the republicans and this cruz v rubio fight coming down second place potentially if everyone is bracing for the potential trump win. we'll see if that provings beneficial for him. but is it possible? what's the likelihood of a second place rubio finish and
4:10 am
third place cruz fin snish is he dropping that quickly? >> we don't actually know that. that's what's so interesting about the iowa caucus. i know we've talked about it. it is cliche. it's about ground and momentum. 46% have not made up their mind in the final closing minds. 18% on the day of decided who they were going to choose. i'll tell you three weeks ago i was in new hampshire. ted cruz came up. all the talk was he did so well. he could come to new hampshire, do well, come in second place, which would be astounding because new hampshire is not his kind of politics. however, marco rubio who's been criticized for not running a very robust strong campaign in iowa or new hampshire now seems to be turning it on. while we talk about the e-mail scandal having nothing do with it it does have some doubt. where it does go is we can see these republican candidates try to talk it up because they want to look like they're fighters
4:11 am
and that they can take on the clinton machine. >> and to mark's point. tonight will be an important indicator when "the des moines register" poll comes out. it will give us a real clear sign on how big that rubio surge is right now. if he performs pretty well in that poll, he's going to have to liv up to those expectations come monday. it's a very significant thing. >> even if he finishes a strong third, he doesn't have to come into second, whether that breaks the log jam in new hampshire. the big story is that -- one of the big stories is the center right has mainland tremendously fragmented. this is the lane that usually picks the nominee. if he gets a tap on the shoulder out of iowa, maybe consolidate that and the goal is go forward from there. cruz on the right, trump in his own place and then rubio is the candidate. >> all right. mark, ron, manu, thank you so much. we'll continue this throughout the show and of course after the campaigning and debates.
4:12 am
time now for the real votes. we'll look ahead to the votes. they come on monday night. iowa caucuses are here. we're all over it. complete coverage of the caucuses all monday only on cnn. and, of course, it will be difficult and iowan know it, to go out today without running into a candidate or surrogate. they're somewhere today, especially for the republicans battling for voters. we've got details on how the republican will be working to pull out the last-minute voters. also the forgotten voters. the there are imaging of aurora, corn fooelsd 'cross the state burke there are urban areas, minority neighborhoods, and the people living here say they could be ignored, but could those people pivot the outcome of monday's caucus.

4:17 am
>> thank you very, very much. >> reporter: in the final hours before the iowa caucuses candidates are chris-crossing the city to build support. >> iowan democrats, are you excited about the future? >> reporter: but after score of veenltss in des moines over the last several months, there is one area that's still waiting for candidates to ask for their votes. >> they avoid this neighborhood like maybe there may be an ebola around some place. they never come here. >> reporter: in a state that's more than 90% white and covered in cornfields, reverend bobby young's neighborhood is mostly black and latino and inner city and the people here are poor. in their months of campaigning across the state, reverend young says the top tier candidates in both parties have largely ignored their votes. >> this is my district. >> reporter: this man represents the district in the state house. >> we have two schools here that
4:18 am
receive 100% free lunch. we have an area where you won't find any businesses or restaurants. >> reporter: the distearpy between white iowan and black iowan is stark. >> you think if a candidate's going go anywhere and talk to anybody, you talk to people that hurt the most. >> reporter: the young perrer members, he believes are not coming because they can't contribute. >> if we were tielk donate, then they'd come by. but when you're working at mcdonald's and paying rent, you don't have $100 to giving to candidate. there's another side to that. we have to show our value. we're in my precinct which is the lowest voting turnout. it's not that we don't have the voters. they lack hope. you know, they don't see hope, so they don't come out to vote.
4:19 am
and when you have, that what happens to candidates? they focus on those that do. >> they say there is one exception, republican rand paul. he spent an hour in a barbershop talking about reform. they fill 25 president 5% of the state's prison cells. >> have you made a decision? >> he made me look at him different. >> how so? >> because he was willing to come into my shop and talk to us. like i said, a lot of candidates ain't going to do that. >> reporter: young and samad plan to caucus and lead caucus and voting programs. they're encouraging young people here too. they treasure their votes even if they believe the candidates for president do not. >> i'm from the south where, you know, it costs us dog bites and fire hoses and everything else
4:20 am
just to get our name on that paper and carry that little itty bitty card. we pay a dear price for that vote. i've got to vote, but maybe it will be for an independent or somebody. it won't be for a republican or democrat because they don't seem to care. >> they don't seem to care. let's bring you in. you listened to that story. the black voters who live here believe that the candidates at large have ignored the neighborhood. what's your response? >> i know they've talked about it. we recently had the brown/black forum for all three representatives. he's really been a representative of the minority community along with wayne ford and mary campos. i think they are trying to address the issues. i certainly hope they go everywhere and i know the candidates have a lot of places to be but i think they are
4:21 am
addressing the issues that are important to minorities. >> we've heard that. of course, the reverend said there are mailers that come and surrogates but why aren't the candidate, especially those trying to put together a obama coalition, it's called. why aren't they going to the people where they live to talk about poverty, education in their community? >> i think they should. i think it's a matter of logistics of where they can go. we certainly have encouraged thistomy go all over iowa. i've been very impressed with all three of our democratic candidates. they have been all over iowa. i know they'd like to get there. more importantly, i think they're addressing the issues which if you look at the broader issues of what they're talking about, they're talking about incarceration that is really skewed. they're talking about the prison issues.
4:22 am
so i think they're talking about the social issues and that may be more important. >> let's expand the conversation and talk about the news that broke on friday, the e-mails that the justice department says will not be release order the state department says will not be release. how big a deal is it? we know it's a talking point for the republicans. how big a deal is it? >> i go all over iowa talking to people. i don't hear anything about this. i hear about college affordability. i heard when you were talking about social justice issues. i hear about income inequality and health care. i don't hear thb issue, so i'm not sure it's something these really resonating with the voters. >> we have heard, of course, repeatedly and we've seen it in polls the questions about secretary clinton's honesty, her trufts worthiness, and this plays into that narrative. of course, the timing is terrible just before the start of the caucuses but this doesn't help or quell those concerns. >> i have no doubt that all three of those candidates are
4:23 am
very truftsworthy, that any of them would be impressive with the united states. i think that's what we're hearing, we're proud with the experience, the judgment they have. i don't think that's the issue most people are thinking about right now. >> let's talk about health care, the sanders campaign putting out this campaign to expand health care to more americans, hillary clinton saying that plan will never be put into place. that's something that some of the sanders supporters believe is just cynicism, the same citicism that would have prevented the affordable care act from being enacted. what do you say to those voters who believe maybe hillary clinton is being a cynic here? >> i would say all our candidates are health care for everyone. they're really about everyone having health care. the real difference is the republicans who want to repeat the affordable care act. you know, we have 19 million people who are now ensured on the affordable care act who were
4:24 am
not before. i think that's the big story here and not the nuances, really, between our candidates. >> senator sanders says if there's a large turnout like what we saw in 2008 or something close to it would be a good night for him. any indicators that this will be a big turnout night for democrats? >> i do think it will be a good turnout. 2008 was a very unique year. i'm not sure it will get to that level but it could. predicting the turnout on the caucuses is not a good thing to do, so i won't try to do that. but i do think it's going to be a very good turnout. one of the things for the democratic party, it helps. we really appreciate when we have good turnout and all three of our candidates have a great organization. that's what drives turnouts. i'm looking forward to the night. >> we know the rough weather is not coming until after the caucus night. >> thank you. >> of course, iowan would come

4:31 am
she was arrested and is facing criminal charges. the two other fugitives still on the run. >> i'm intrigued and a lot of people are, too, that someone would become so close to someone as violent as this and help in their escape. i think of joyce mitchell. >> sure. in new york. >> you gave us a little about her. >> in the case of joyce mitchell, it was a romantic relationship. authorities haven't said there was a romance between the escapees and noosha farhi n ravaghi. they say there was a flirtacious

the issue of income and equality while praising sanders for his authentic voice on the issue. how do we know you'll keep this issue up front. >> was chairing on the committee. you can't stand up and have your voice heard and have your case adjudicated. so i have a really long history of taking on all kinds of inequality, and when i went to beijing in 1995 and said human's rights were women's rights were high man's rights. that was a statement about e equality, every kind of inequality you can imagine. >> all right. so that was clinton's answer. and elena, you shared with me that going into that town hall you were undecided but leaning toward senator sanders. >> that's right. >> what did you think of secretary clinton's answer? >> i liked her answer although it didn't quite answer my question. liked what she said about all

the a great work she's done but she didn't answer my question about income inequality specifically. >> did she have an opportunity to win your vote, persuade you? >> i think if she gave a strong answer about income equality, which is very important for me, she would have had a chance to sway me. but because she didn't touch on income inequality i made my decision in that moment. >> you made your decision. what is your decision? >> i think i'll be caucusing for senator sanders. >> what is it about his platform, his record that you believe is the reason you're going support him? >> well, like i said, income inequality is an important issue for me. it's something that senator sanders has had a strong stance on for a long time. i like his platform on inequality, women's issue, campus sexual assaults, men mum wage. bernie sanders really interests me with his platform.
4:39 am
>> it's interesting you picture senator sanders on his responses over women's issues over hnlt. why? >> he has a 100% pro-choice voting record and that's important to me and i know he'll continue make those decisions that are important to me. >> anecdotally, you're ooh a student at drake university. many of your friends are going to caucus for the first time. how excited are your peers because we know that senator sanders needs that group to turn out if he's going to do well on monday night. >> we're all really excited. i would say my pierce are split almost equally between secretary clinton and senator bernie sanders. everyone is really pumped up. >> let's bring in cnn executive editor mark preston. young voters, a group, every cycle, says we're going to bring out and activate them and
4:40 am
they're historically unreliable. are we seeing any indication that things will be different? >> right. if you look at them, an african-american coming to a state that is predominantly, did i say predominantly white -- >> yes. >> -- he comes in and wins iowa that really propels his campaign. to your poet that was in many ways because of the youth vote. i will tell you nine months i was here in the state. elizabeth warren was being drafted to run. of course, she didn't run. i had gone to their campaign trail. they were trying to get the young votes like elena. they understand not only is the young vote important when it comes to the caucuses but they're the volunteers. these are the kids who make telephone calls, knock on doors, and try to persuade others to do so.
4:41 am
bernie sanders is 74 years old and the naktd he has this appeal to young voters is really amazing. but in a year for donald trump. i'm not sure what isn't amazing. >> donald trump, of course, expected to -- i mean, of course his model is bring out those who have never voted. >> correct. if you look at his rallies, he gets thousands. the question is there they show up on caucus night and bernie sanders, to be sub secful, he's going to need a lot of elenas to show snup let me ask you about that element mark brought up. bernie sanders approaching 75 years old and he's exciting young people. beyond the specific issues that appeal to you, what generally do you believe is the reason he's getting so much support from the younger demographic? >> i guess i have to allude to those issues.
4:42 am
women's issues, police brutality, at least my peers at drake university what we care about, we're all excited to come out and caucus for him. >> let me ask you about something we talked about during the break. you've got campaigns there every day. give us a snapshot ott of what it's tlieng be on a college campus in des moinessome. >> it's very exciting, very exhausting, class home work, presidential candidate, rally, home work, class, some people are skipping class to see presidential candidates. i can't drive anywhere. there's no parking. it's very exciting but very heck t tick too. >> it's very exciting. elena dietz, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> mark, thank you for joining us too. take a turn here. if you don't trust the scientific political voting, here's something basic.
4:43 am
cedar rapids casting their own vote. how do they do it? >> they put a pen down with a picture of the candidates and then they leave their marks on the photos. it's counseleded as a vote. they picked hillary clinton and donald trump to win. we'll see if they're accurate. >> after all the campaigning and debates, time for the first real votes to be cast. that's monday night. all the campaigns are out this weekend and we're covering them the only way cnn can. of course, monday, we've got cnn coverage all day. of course, tomorrow don't miss "state of the union" with jake tapper. he's got marco rubio, ted cruz, bernie sanders on the show. again, that's "state of the union wts with jake tapper tomorrow at 9:00 a.m. eastern right here on cnn. a lot going on this weekend. we're doving all of it. christi, back to you in atlanta. >> you're covering ought of it. that's a story with bulls i

4:48 am
quote, dangerously" around america. they estimate 3 million to 4 million people will be affected across america by next year. i'm wondering, we know that this virus is being linked to underdeveloped brans in children. how expansive are the cases that you're seeing there? >> you know, christi, it's just heartbreaking. ever since the zika virus was detected last year, more than 4,000 babies have been born with what's called microcephaly, small heads and brain damage. we've talked to mothers, many of them teenagers, with very little resources. on top of that, people are trying to push them away. they're afraid that their babies could get infected.
4:49 am
they're getting ostracized from all sides. many are the sole breadwinners for their families. these babies will need early intervention and resources for the family. they just don't have the resources to do all this. it's just so heartbreaking, christi. >> it really is as we look at the pictures there. i know the virus is spread by the zika virus. we know it's spread by the mosquitos. the thing is the olympics are being held in brazil in a few months. wondering what kind of measures are being taken to get this under control. it's got to be of concern. >> there is a concern. there is novak seen or cure for the zika virus, so the real efforts are on mosquito control. more than 200,000 soldiers have been dedicated to go door to door to remove the standing water. they can't stockpile water in
4:50 am
these drought-stricken areas if they don't put a lid on it. they're also fume gating. they're saying during the olympics and ahead of them, they're going to inspect them on daily basis, but here in pra zbrazil, the mosqui population does die off so they are hoping frankly weather will be on their side. >> good point. shasta darlington, thank you. let's bring in dean of university of nebraska medical centers college of public health. dr. conn, thank you for being with us. help us understand what this virus is and how it's connected to this brain damage in children in utero. >> thank you. as you heard, zika is a mosquito born virus and spreading explosively in the americas s asocietiuated with these
4:51 am
newborns born with abnormally small heads and brain and other defects. this virus for 50 years, it was a rare cause of a mild fever illness that occurred in a narrow belt in africa and southeast asia and then in about 2007, it went rogue and it spread across the pacific into brazil and now as you heard, there has been about half a million to a million and a half cases in brazil. >> what is most concerning to people is the fact there is no cure. there is not even a vaccine right now. what can people do to try to protect themselves, other than just trying not to get bit by a mosquito because let's clarify, being bit by a mosquito is the only way to contract this. >> well, being bitten by a mosquito is the main way to contract this. there is some probably rare evidence that you could also get
4:52 am
this from blood chance fusions or person to person transmission. how you protect yourself is everything you do to keep from getting bit by a mosquito, whether it's for west nile disease or whether it's from zika virus. that means repellants, long sleeves, long legs -- long pants and try to get rid of all standing water around where you are. >> the cases here in the u.s. seem to be expanding of what we're seeing. i'm sure a lot of people are looking at this wondering how susceptible are we here in the u.s. to some sort of epidemic? >> and we should expect the cases to expand because they are expanding in the americas but the important thing here is that the cases we see here in the united states are not from local transmission in the united states. these are people who have traveled to the americas and then have come back and have been diagnose nosd with zika vi.
4:53 am
we see this with a disease anywhere is a disease everywhere. within the united states, we do have these same type of mosquitos that are transmitting the disease in for example, mexico in the caribbean, but we've been very fortunate so far that these mosquitos have not picked up the virus and are causing transmission locally. >> okay. i only have about 30 seconds but i did want to ask you, for people watching this and we know what happens to babies in utero and babies born with this but what about young children or people out and about? is there any serious risk in that regard? >> as far as we know, except for people who are pregnant, this causes a mild illness with a fever, headache, maybe some red eyes and joint pains that gets better in about three to five days. >> all right. dr. khan, we appreciate your
4:54 am
expertise and your insight in this. thank you for taking the time to be with us. >> thank you very much. >> of course. i want to get you some news about some other stories that we're follow thing morning. bond was denied for aman bundy. so far 11 people have been arrested, ten in oregon, one in arizona over the nearly month-long occupation. four members of the protest group are still, though, inside that refuge. the u.s. navy has sent a guided missile destroyer near an island in the south china sea. the waters are home to messy territorial claims all disputing sovereignty over an island chain. they sent the chship to challen the freedoms of the united states and others. china says it sent messages to the destroyer asking washington to respect and abide by relevant china laws. the u.s. conducted a similar

depression. get up and vote. i will get rid of your depression. you'll be happy. >> rise and shine and happy saturday to you. i'm christie paul. my colleague victor blackwell live from des moines, iowa where a lot of chatter is these candidates saying get out there and vote. ye yes? >> certainly christi, he said he's going to cure depression if you come vote. this is the critical race for the white house as the campaign trail goes through iowa. the first votes in the election year will be cast. the candidates we know are sprinting across the state making those final pitches. we're going to start with cnn phil mattingly who is following what is said to be a very busy day in iowa city. phil, it's getting pretty
5:01 am
crowded there. >> reporter: no question about it, victor. in the state of iowa, more than 25 events today across all of the candidates from both parties and a recognition this is the final sprint. this is when it happens if you're going to turn out voters, this is the last opportunity to meet them in the state. victor, the big question over the last two weeks is ted cruz versus donald trump but interesting developments over the last 24 hours, if you watch the tv ads here in iowa and talk to sources within the cruz and marco rubio campaigns, ted cruz shifted his focus from donald trump and towards marco rubio. what does this mean? ted cruz obviously clearly trying to halt any type of progress marco rubio is making and concerns a good marco rubio showing here could mean problems for ted cruz later. what does that mean for donald trump? looks like the effort not to go to the debate wasn't so much of a risk after all. donald trump feeling comfortable about where he is.
5:02 am
ted cruz shifting resources elsewhere, victor. >> phil, do we know from the cruz campaign's perspective which element here, he's being hit from all sides from all candidates here, which element is sticking which is most impactf impactful? >> reporter: you know, i think they look at all of the attacks and i think it's a sheer number that's most problematic. i was at a town hall and he can list them through every candidate going after him for every single issue. i think what they are concerned about is less so much the attacks having a major impacting and sinking him here in iowa than more than other candidates start to rise. they want to counter the narrative that marco rubio comes out of the state with major momentum and want to keep the idea this is a two-man race but ends up between donald trump and ted cruz. they don't want the stories saying hey, marco rubio did better and seeing the shift in resources know, victor.
5:03 am
>> phil mattingly for us in iowa city. phil, thank you so much. we have with us all morning analyst ron brownstein and cnn politics executive editor mark preston. let's start with the cruz campaign. we know that the surge that we saw in december may be over and the latest polls have donald trump back at the top. how impactful have these criticisms been, how deep is the slide? >> i think the criticisms from donald trump have worked and the fact that he keeps on saying he's not an american citizen, although, you know, a lot of people find that laughable, it certainly is resinating with some people. at the same time, think, and this always happens in iowa and new hampshire. there comes a republican party to come together and ron said all morning so accurately is that the moderate lane, the bush, kasich, christies, they have taken no traction. marco rubio is hoping to draw their support and do well here

and new hampshire. >> i want you to listen to donald trump and this canada anchor baby account he's making. listen. >> ted cruz may not be a u.s. citizen. right? but he's an anchor baby. he's an anchor baby. ted cruz is an anchor baby in canada but canada doesn't except anchor babies, they just waited a long time. >> well, we also know that ted cruz is coming back at the campaign with a new ad, one where he's calling into question the new york values. let's listen to that. >> i mean, hey, i lived in new york city and manhattan all my life, okay? so my views are a little bit different if i lived in iowa. >> they are different, like on abortion. >> would president trump ban partial abortion. >> i'm pro-choice in every respect. >> what does trump think about
5:05 am
iowa? >> how stupid are the people of iowa? >> it's interesting because it seems that donald trump is winning this war, although, what donald trump is saying about ted cruz being a canada anchor baby doesn't really make sense. cruz is using trump's actual words. >> trump is basically saying ted cruz is not one of you. over 90% of republican primary voters are white in 2012 and reminding them ted cruz' background is not their background. that is the underlying message. republicans have been uneasy about donald trump with a message that really verges on muslims and mexican immigrants, undocumented ilmmigrants. this gets more complicated. they at this point seem more focused on the principiple alternative to trump. if trump wins iowa, he could roll through and win south carolina and he will have done something no republican
5:06 am
candidate has done in a contested race when iowa, new hampshire and south carolina and the alternative at that point may be like the last speed bump and one of the most under reported stories of this past week is henry mceldermaster in carolina endorsed donald trump. so if you can imagine you're going to have this support potentially from the establishment of south carolina go towards donald trump and that could be a disaster if you're in the establishment. >> the risk to trump would be that if marco rubio does do well, consolidates a center right block in new hampshire, it is bigger in south carolina than people recognize and look, as we said before, the geometry are unbelievably complex. ted cruz and marco rubio may be better off if theth other if th the race. >> is there still vir few in the establishment lane. >> we want to talk about the
5:07 am
democrats and hillary clinton and at least the front runner nationally. depends which poll you look at in iowa and this controversy over the e-mails. it is back again. yesterday the state department said it will not release top secret e-mails that clinton was involved with that were on her server and when she was secretary of state. before that news broke, she addressed the issue last night in iowa. >> i said that i should have made a different choice because it's proven to be quite difficult, but the facts are that i never e-mailed anything that was considered classified. i wasn't marked classified and i just think that at the end of the day, everybody's going to know i asked to have all these made public. i'd love for them to be public. i'd love for people to see what i did and i'd love for that to happen. >> chris is following this from washington. the worst possible timing two days before the start of the caucuses.
5:08 am
>> that's right. this is not what hillary clinton and her campaign want to be talking about and the news of course is just yesterday the state department announced it will not release 22 e-mails from hillary clinton because they contain top secret information. >> the documents are being upgraded because they contain a category of top secret information. these documents were not marked classified at the time they were sent. >> so clinton has long argue that same point, that the e-mails were not marked classified at the time they were sent adding government burr co cats are over classifying them. she kept on a private server. news some of the e-mails won't be released comes days before the iowa caucuses and could serve as a reminder of what some voters see as one of clinton's biggest weaknesses, that she can't be trusted. republicans not surprisingly
5:09 am
pounced on the news clinton kept top secret information on a private e-mail server. >> hillary clinton put some of the highest, most sensitive intelligence information on her private server because maybe she thinks she's above the law. or maybe she just wanted the convenience of being able to read the stuff on her blackberry. this is unacceptable. this is a disqualifier. >> so the clinton campaign says it opposes the state department's decision to hold back the e-mails. it appears the e-mails have been overly classified and said the campaign will quote pursue all appropriate avenues to see her e-mails are released in a manner consistent with her call last year and on a separate note, it's worth mentioning the state department also announced it would not release 18 e-mails between secretary clinton and president obama. the reasoning was to protect the president's ability to receive blunt advice, victor. >> all right. chris fratez, in washington.

beautiful, beautiful des moines, iowa. 13 minutes after the hour now and this is the final sprint. republicans and democrats make a mad dash around the state, shaking as many hands rally after rally. you see the candidates here taking very different routes. donald trump speaking to massive audiences in auditoriums, speaking to these people thousands at a time instead of the coffee shops, middle school gyms, living rooms, that retail politicking iowans treasure. some are asking will this change the way the candidates approach a campaign in iowa? >> thank you, davenport. >> what a great crowd, thank you very much. >> in the final days before the iowa caucuses, the presidential candidates are pouring into
5:15 am
coffee shops like smoky row in des moines. >> thank you for being here. >> shanking hands asking for support. it's the small scale face-to-face familiarity iowaen treasure. >> you get to actually engage them one on one or in a community forum where you can see how they really respond to individual communities, and you get an actual feel of their realness. >> i've seen bernie. i've seen -- i've heard that hillary has come through. i wasn't here when she was here. i know chris christie was around. santorum has been walking around. seen him a couple times, actually. >> reporter: many have visited but not all. is there anyone notably who has not been here, hasn't come through? >> i haven' seen trump. >> reporter: it's not just smoky row the gop front runner donald trump skipped, trump's campaign focused very little on the retail politicking. >> what a crowd. >> reporter: instead, the trump
5:16 am
campaign is focused primarily on huge rallies across iowa, making the case to voters thousands at a time. >> donald trump has totally thrown everything on its head. he had a fly in and fly out campaign. he rarely spends any time in a primary or caucus state. >> reporter: this week during an interview with cnn's wolf blitzer, the billionaire businessman was very complementary of a holiday inn express. >> it was actually two nights. i thought it was terrific. it was clean. it was nice, and the bed was good. >> reporter: in the closing hours before caucus night, some are wondering if a trump win will jeopardize the intimacy of campaigning here. >> his message seems to be coming out above everyone else's for good or bad and that will have an impact. >> donald trump has changed politics as we know it. we could go back to the idea of this retail politics and shaking
5:17 am
hands but it will give people pause about how they will start campaigning. >> for more now, i'm joined by former george w. bush political director and chairman of the american conservative union. let's start with that element of trump's style. thousands at a time. does that change iowa campaigning? >> you got to do what your candidate is good at, and i think trump and his team knows he can grab a big audience and really speak to them and connect to them. it's what he's good at. maybe he's not good at other things. we'll find out. it's very controversial in a state like iowa. these people are used to you going to their door knocking on it and telling them why you deserve their vote. no question this is very unorthodox behavior in iowa. >> let's talk about something that came out from cnn politics first on cnn that barbara bush, former first lady, jeb bush's
5:18 am
mother will be joining the campaign trail in new hampshire. >> yes. >> impact? >> i think it's a big deal. barbara bush has got to be one of the most popular human beings that ever walked the earth. she's a revered figure and especially in that area of the country. i think it really shows how jeb bush is all in still. his mother is -- >> jeb, exclamation point. >> when you deal with barbara, that's an exclamation point, too. >> here is the question, does it play right into donald trump's narrative that jeb bush has to call out his mommy to help him out of this single digit purge tory? >> i wouldn't be surprised if he ues the same line. you're probably right. it probably does play into the narrative but you have to go with what your strengths are. one thing jeb bush needs to continue to do to get his legs like he did the other night, it's a game of inches. a marginal game. every vote you can get and every
5:19 am
person you can appeal to and his mother appeals to a lot of people. it's a smart move. >> we'll see if that helps in 2000. george w. bush did not win new hampshire. john mccain won. let's talk about this lane. we were speaking during the break about the virtue of the establishment lane. you take question with the term establishment. >> i worked for george w. bush in the white house. >> yeah. >> so did my wife. but i'm a movement conservative. so when people use establishment to mean moderate, i would actually say there isn't much of a lane for moderates. there is a small lane, but not a big lane. two-thirds of people will be strong conservative voters. if a candidate wants to be establishment until the soft moderate sense, there are not too many voters you're going to get in doing that and that's why people like lindsey graham had short term campaigns. the key for people like jeb bush and chris christie and folks
5:20 am
that aren't considered, you know, really loved by the conservative base of the party is to explain to them why actually their policy solutions are conservative. every candidate has to core conservatives. politics are part of it is romance and connecting. the other piece is on the math and the math is on the side of conservatives. >> which part is jeb bush, because you're so close to the bush family, what part is he getting wrong? >> he got it right in the debate. he had the right answers. he explained a real rational. he would probably admit he's me around -- miandered. they want to see someone who is strong, be a leader i take on isis, fix our borders. they want somebody that will take on the obama agenda and all about strength and you know who projects strength so well? >> donald trump. >> it's not really a surprise you see that happen with the polls and results that will
5:21 am
start happening on monday. >> not just overall in general. it's specifically on all of those issues, donald trump is winning with voters. he listen strongest to take on those. thank you for being with us this morning. christi, back tow you. two escapees still on the run. one turned himself in. plus, a woman takes on walmart and wins. why the retail giant lost $31 million. when heartburn hits fight back fast tums smoothies starts dissolving the instant it touches your tongue and neutralizes stomach acid at the source tum, tum, tum, tum smoothies! only from tums ♪ beth, i hear you calling.♪.s ♪ but i can't come home right now... ♪

fugitive has turned himself in, authorities could be closer to capturing the two escapees still on the loose. bac duong was arrested. he'll have more charges and nick valencia is here with more and the first question in everybody's mind is what is he telling police? >> he's cooperating. that's important. he's telling investigators spfly about the get away van that the trio used in their escape. two fugitives still on the run for more than a week. >> they should be considered armed and dangerous. the longer they are out of custody, the more desperate. >> two fugitives in california are still on the run but one is back in jail. bac duong showed up at a auto shop and wanted to surrender and he'll face extra charges in addition to the charges he faced when he escaped.
5:26 am
the focus of the search is centered on fresno and san jose and the white van they may be using. the captured man is helping out. >> he is cooperating and providing information we're able to distribute and react on. i don't want to get into specifics of the interview, but i can tell you he's being corporative thus far. >> reporter: the day before duong turned himself in, the jail's english teacher was arrested. she may have helped them escape by giving them a google map. letters between her and a fugitive that took her english class were a tip off. >> it was personal. it wasn't the relationship we expect between a teacher and inmate. >> that english class bonding over the alleged ringleader. they had a common language. she's being held on bond and expected to be arraigned on monday. >> thank you very much. listen to more what could be going on, let's bring in former
5:27 am
new york city police commissioner bernard carrick. thank you for being with us. the question, i think, on everybody's mind, too, why would he turn himself in? do you have any insight? >> he turned himself in because he's going to get caught. these guys will be brought into custody in this case probably a lot quicker than we saw in new york up in new york state and clinton. the authorities here in orange co county have a lot of information. they made a number of arrests in parole and probation suspects which i would assume are people that's connected with this escape in someway on the outside. these guys had the inside connection was evidently this teacher but i'm sure they had people on the outside that was cooperating with them, helping them and that's where the other arrests have come from and they will get information from those guys, as well. >> we know they were in this
5:28 am
white van, allegedly and we know that this escapee whose been caught has given them more information how they tented the windows and took the license plate off. do you believe they might still be in this van at this point? >> i don't think they are in the van. i think they have probably got rid of it and moved on to something else. they may be together. they may have split up. i think the people that the authorities now have in custody are going to be instrumental in identifying where they are or possibly where they are. and given the way the authorities have handled it so far which i think is extremely well, i think these guys should be in custody sometime soon. >> and last but not least, we know that duong went to a local auto shop to turn himself in and knew people there. do people normally escape go to someplace they are familiar with? >> christi, here is usually the
5:29 am
way it goes, the wife, the girlfriend, the kids and then friends. that's sort of the primaries that we target in law enforcement. we go to looking for these guys once they get out. so it's the friends and family they wound up going. >> bernard kerik, your insight is intriguing. thank you for taking the time to be with us. >> thank you. >> absolutely. >> the candidates meanwhile are hitting the campaign trail and hitting it hard today. so many start campaigning in just a few hours, and they go until late today. really trying to take advantage of every last minute they have to make the difference before the crucial day, voting day, also caucus day i should say after getting hit hard in thursday's republican debate a lot of people are asking if cruz can still recover from losing the debate.

all right. well, if you're out today in iowa, there's a good chance you'll see candidate asking for your vote or surrogate asking for your support. hillary clinton, bernie sanders neck and neck in the polls. sanders, clinton, o'malley holding at least a dozen campaign events today. here is their map spread out over the state. look at the republicans' map. they are getting an early start kicking off the first event in just 45 minutes. check out the map here. you've got the candidates spread
5:34 am
all over in the last hours of before we go into caucus monday. some of the 20 plus republican events going on today as the hopefuls battle to win and considering donald trump's lead in the latest cnn orc poll, the question is is this now a race for second place? marco rubio already bracing for a loss he says but they all kind of tamped down expectations possibly behind ted cruz. listen. >> obviously, you know, ted is the front runner here. he spent a lot of time and money and has 10,000 volunteers working on his behalf on the ground and i saw, i guess, his campaign over a month ago was talking about how they would win comfortably. we're not going to make those productio productions. we're going to work hard and feel good about the growth of our campaign. >> here to discuss is cnn senior political report eer manu ragu.
5:35 am
is there a chance this could be a trump, rubio cruz finish. >> it would be a big surprise if rubio did end up in second place. finisher would be a huge boost. we're still expecting them to be one, two, three, trump clearly in the lead in the final days. what you're seeing from rubio is an effort to go after cruz. cruz is the biggest target right now. he believes that if he -- if cruz does not come out victorious in iowa, it's going to significantly hurt his campaign going into new hampshire and the rest of the primaries in february and it could eventually torpedo his campaign. the cruz campaign has money. they have $19 million in cash on hand and even if they do not emerge victorious here, they could potentially keep this race alive. stay in the race for longer than february, but of course, we know this is a race about momentum and winning. would give whatever candidate, whether cruz or trump a huge amount of momentum into new hampshire. >> okay.
5:36 am
let's talk about the cruz campaign. we have a cruz supporter and let's pick up there on momentum. ted cruz had the momentum going into december coming out of december at the top of the polls, where is that now? >> i'll tell you what. you heard marco rubio say we have over 10,000 volunteers across iowa working on this campaign. this is an unbelievable momentum. i walked into the headquarters at 9:30 and it was packed. you don't see that with donald trump. i don't know if something happened in iowa where you no longer have to go meet people face-to-face, door to door. i don't think that's the case. i think iowans expect to be touched not just through big rallies or tv ads like donald trump. i feel comfortable we'll see a ted cruz win in iowa monday night. what is more important is conservatives are waiting for iowa caucus goers to set the stage for conservative come back and breakup the republican -- i'm sorry, the washington cartel and send cruz to washington d.c. >> if you don't see the win on
5:37 am
monday, what does that mean for you moving into new hampshire? >> to work on a continue to work, look, ronald reagan lost iowa and i'm not saying ted cruz is going to lose iowa. i'm confident we'll win and trip up donald trump. but we'll go into new hampshire, the same thing in new hampshire. i've been in a lot of campaigns in my life and i was in new hampshire this week and people were coming back from knocking on doors with big smiles on their faces, energized ready to make calls. this is every element of a winning campaign. >> it may have the elements of a winning campaign but if you look at the latest polls, the numbers don't look like december and i don't know which specifically, i guess i should ask which attack, which criticism is working for the candidates? >> which criticism -- >> with the groups -- >> i think these polls are questionable. you see them flying back and forth all the time. obviously the big poll that matters is going to be on monday. we have the best ground game of
5:38 am
any candidate in the state and country and that is really -- but most important, we have a candidate that has a terrific message. he has the character, integrity and consistency. donald trump is not that conservative leader. let's face it, he was a democrat three months ago and will be a democrat three months from now when we send him back to manhattan. >> let's bring manu back into this conversation. do they know which attack, which line of criticism is working best? >> they believe this attack ted cruz made calculate decisions, rather than based on his core convictions goes at the heart of his message of ted cruz is positioning himself as the one conservative fighter, the person who has stood to break up as he said, the washington cartel, they believe that by pointing out some of what they view as being inconsistent has undermined that message. it's stuck. the question is whether it has. i'm not sure we know that yet.
5:39 am
now, the one thing that we should keep in mind about iowa is a number of these voters are late deciders. if we've seen polls shift in the last several days, what does that mean come monday night? i we don't know for sure and we always talk about turnout. some of the polls suggest it does. i don't think we'll really know until monday night. >> the question of a lack of genuineness that we heard that on thursday night from the other candidates and friday and into today. we've seen that ted cruz' unp e unfaverbility is up seven and closer to donald trump and never going below donald trump. we haven't seen that. but the question now is how does he fight off in the last couple of days as voters make that decision this narrative that he's not genuine? >> the same way he's continued to go from eighth place to second place to tied for first place over the last three months, by a consistent conservative message backed by
5:40 am
real principle and belief. he doesn't fluctuate. as we've seen in iowa where we come out against ethanol subsidies. it's that integrity. this is what is going to win on tuesday. people want a consistently conservative leader to go to washington d.c. and break up the cartel and stand up for conservative principles. iowa voters are conservative and will galvanize in the next 48 days and set the stage. >> we've seen in the polls that evangelicals are choosing donald trump. >> and there's another poll that is evangelicals choosing ted cruz. so the polls are going to flip-flop all over the place. the polls that i care about are thousands of volunteers that are talking to iowa caucus voters every single day and reporting back to headquarters. that message is a powerful one we're winning. >> this is one race where evangelicals really are split heading into monday. we have not seen that as much in past presidential elections.
5:41 am
fascinating to see on monday how much of the evangelical voters go to trump or cruz. >> by the way -- don't undere t estimate the catholic voters. we are very pro-life and donald trump is not. >> thank you so much. don't miss state of the union with jake tapper on sunday. you'll hear from the candidates one more time. jake has ted cruz and marco rubio and bernie sanders on the show. "state of the union" tomorrow morning at 9:00 a.m. right here on cnn. we've been talking about the important, of course, iowa caucuses, the first contest in the campaign, the runup to the white house, but who is getting the edge here? when we come back, we'll talk about this with cnn politics executive editor mark preston. plus a woman who took on walmart and won. why the retail giant lost $31 million. that's coming up next.
5:42 am
meanwhile, you don't have to be rich and famous to have a butler. a new app allows all you busy professionals to hire help for your to do list. >> i can persuade you to take a sandwich with you, sir is this. >> i'll get drive through. >> batman is a normal man but at the hands of his butler, he became a super hero. >> we're the co-found es of hello alfred. it's a shared neighborhood butler that helps you get things done. when you sign up, you get a dedicated person who is going to be assigned to you and visit your home every week and that routine can be a combination of grocery shopping, getting your laundry, picking up your dry cleaning. >> just and i met at harvard business school. >> before we went to business school worked in finance and consulting and had really long hours. we hired somebody off of craigslist and we built it for ourselves. >> alfreds are deeply vetted.
5:43 am
>> it's easier to get into an ivy league school than alfred. >> it costs $32 a week. >> when you're working in a fast-paced industry, a lot of little life things tend to fall by the wayside and having an app where i can pretty much request anything and get a little bit of my time back is incredibly helpful. >> we didn't think we would go into business to create a butler service. a lot of people told us that's a silly idea. i think we've proven a lot of people wrong. this bale of hay cannot be controlled. when a wildfire raged through elkhorn ranch, the sudden loss of pasture became a serious problem for a family business. faced with horses that needed feeding and a texas drought that sent hay prices soaring, the owners had to act fast. thankfully, mary miller banks with chase for business.

5:47 am
all right. the last couple of days just two days now until the iowa caucuses and the candidates, well, you know, they are out in full force for the last-ditch attempt to whew voters. mark preston, we talked a lot about the democrats but there is one we have not discussed, martin o'malley. if he doesn't reach the threshold of viability, where does he go? >> he was asked this by chris cuomo earlier this week. nine months ago i was here with him in iowa and he's a very good retail politician. he was supposed to be bernie sanders and the alternative to hillary clinton and never took off. to your point, and what chris said earlier this week is that
5:48 am
he could be the pose powerful person here and the reason being is that when democrats caucus here, there is basically one vote and if you don't get 15%, if your supporters are not able to get 15% in this vote, this very public vote, you have to realign and join another campaign. if martin o'malley were to send his folks to bernie sanders or hillary clinton, he could tip the scales. >> let's talk about the republicans and as this moves not just to new hampshire but beyond, trump win, there are some outside of ted cruz who are hoping for a trump win try to contain cruz. what does a trump win mean here moving forward? >> so trump, let's assume he wins in iowa. he goes into new hampshire. he is way up in new hampshire. nobody thinks that trump will lose new hampshire. so now you have the momentum game. so he's won iowa. he's won new hampshire and goes down to south carolina. we talked last hour how some of the establishment types are starting to embrace his canada
5:49 am
see. does the fire wall become super tuesday and perhaps not the first super tuesday on march 1st. you go to march 15th and you have marco rubio in florida. his home state and jeb bush, of course, who knows where he is at this point. at that date those contests on march 15th, if you win the state, you win that big cash of delegates up until that point, you kind of pick off delegates. you're not winning all of them. i think that's the place they would try to stop donald trump. >> if trump loses here, are people, are you as confident he will not lose or he will win new hampshire? >> it will be difficult. it will be a little bit harder but he's still so high in the polls. the question is who will then win? we've been talking this morning. ted cruz can still do very well in new hampshire but new hampshire tends to go for candidates that we haven't seen john kasich or jeb bush or rubio or chris christie actually take off. they have done okay there but haven't taken off. in many ways, donald trump is
5:50 am
helped by the fact it hasn't been as strong. >> three tickets, the smart money is on trump, rubio and cruz but where does marco rubio win? >> well, so a good question. so marco rubio believes in his campaign believes that he is surging here in a strong placement here, a strong third, maybe second could propel him into new hampshire. maybe he gets momentum and move down to south carolina. the rubio campaign thinks they can win south carolina. they do believe they constituency. if you can hold onto the alabamas of the world, texass of the world because texas will vote on march 1st. if you can do that and get to the 15th in florida, that's a huge win. >> i won't ask you predictions who will win on monday night. >> anybody who tells you they are going to win is lying. nobody knows. >> turnout, are we going to see a big turnout?
5:51 am
>> weather. we know there is a storm coming in. we don't know when. we think it will be after the fact. that could help donald trump. if the weather is bad, that will hurt donald trump. but turnout, turnout, turnout. we saw earlier last hour you had an undecided voter that went with bernie sanders. he needs a lot of those college students out to help him. hillary clinton needs the women, donald trump needs the disaffected angry voter to help him and ted cruz needs grass roots activists he says he has to help him. >> these are the final hours those undecideds decide. mark preston, thank you. christi, back to you. >> victor, you've been out and about. what is resinating with you? are people saying? >> i think, you know, i had a conversation with two couples who are really ready for this to move onto the next state, move onto the next phase getting calls every day. the mailers nonstop and surrogates and campaign workers but i asked would you rather

move later into the year? they said no, we'll take it. iowans pressure being first although they are now tired of the on slot, they love this spot and they appreciate that retail campaigning, christi. >> they understand the importance and pressure it. we want to tell you about a walmart employee that wins a lawsuit against the retailer. she is awarded $31 million. we'll tell you why. also, new problems for people affected by flint's water crisis. what was recently installed to protect people may not be helping. yes, new possible cases of lead poisoning surface. when heartburn hits fight back fast tums smoothies starts dissolving the instant it touches your tongue and neutralizes stomach acid at the source tum, tum, tum, tum smoothies! only from tums
