attacks. we'll bring you that interview shortly. >> new hampshire cannot come soon enough for donald trump. he admits the boycott likely cost him the win in iowa. he said he would do it all over again to help raise money for vets. this has bernie sanders and hillary clinton prepare to answer questions in a presidential town hall tonight. we have complete coverage. sarah live in manchester. >> well, chris, of course ted cruz wants a win in new hampshire to kick off a winning streak. really donald trump needs a strong showing. he said he wants a victory. marco rubio had that surprise showing in iowa. but if he wants to make it, if he wants to coalesce the establishment support, he will need a strong showing in new hampshire as well. so much at stake. less than a week to go until the new hampshire primaries. >> these are truly dishonest
people. >> reporter: less than a week from the primary, donald trump is blasting ted cruz. >> ben carson quit. let me have your vote. what kind of crap is this? >> reporter: trump slam issing the senator after his team falsely told iowa caucusgoers that ben carson planned to quit the race. >> i'm sorry about that. >> reporter: and continuing to warn voters about his canadian birth. >> i hardly think it is news that donald trump is insulting me. >> cruz riding high from the hawk eye state win now preparing for battle in new hampshire. and even looking ahead to south carolina. hoping for a boost from the southern evangelical vote. >> we're going to continue to do what we did in iowa here on the ground in new hampshire and south carolina. >> reporter: while trump, banking on his popularity in new hampshire, hopes to avoid is the same mistakes he made in iowa. >> had i known i was going to be
liked as much as i am in iowa, is and people did like me, you would understand that, i maybe would have spent a little more and maybe i would have won it. >> both top-tier candidates perplexed on over the highly publicized third place showing in iowa. >> we have been joke issing that bronze is the new gold. >> the winner of the night, marco rubio. trump, humiliated. >> rubio capitalizing on his momentum in this small new england state, asserting his electability. >> do you know who does not want to run against me? bernie sanders and hillary clinton. it's why they attack me more than any other republican in this race. they don't want to run against me. but i can't wait to run against them. >> meanwhile, they are hitting the ground hard in the granite state after a razor thin victory in iowa. as we mentioned, rivals set to make their pitch directly to new hampshire voters in our cnn
presidential town hall. that is this evening. joe johns live in manchester with the democratic race for us. hi, joe. >> reporter: hi, michaela. they are both reaching for momentum. bernie sanders claiming another fund-raising spike as he and hillary clinton prepare for the faceoff at the town hall here in new hampshire. >> i feel really great being back in new hampshire after winning in iowa and having a chance to come here. >> reporter: riding high on the narrowest victory in caucus history, hillary clinton take the showdown of votes to new hampshire. >> we fought secretary clinton through a virtual tie. we have not even seen all the breakdowns of the election results. >> reporter: bernie sanders feeling good about his odds on the granite state where he has
been polling for months. his double digit lead fueling his confidence. >> if we can win here in new hampshire -- let me rephrase it. when we win here in new hampshire >> reporter: while clinton won the primary in 2008, the state has often supported neighboring politicians, possibly giving sanders an edge. after narrowly beating hillary clinton in iowa, the democratic socialist said he raised a staggering sum, $3 million online in 24 hours, commanding a huge base of support among younger, newer voters. secretary clinton vying for the chance to take back some of that support. >> i'm going to have to work to do to reach out to young voters, and i intend to do that. >> reporter: they will face tough questions from voters at
tonight's cnn town hall in derry. >> i'm looking forward to every opportunity. i know people here have choice. >> reporter: without a clear winner in iowa, both candidates being forced to bear down in new hampshire trying to draw some contrast with the new hampshire primary just a week away. chris and alisyn. >> cnn political commentators matt lewis and errol lewis with time warner cable news. it was hard to look at iowa as a clear victory for either, right? the state party says hill rip wins. she has a few more delegates. but neck and neck by any real measure. >> new hampshire is different in a lot of different ways. first, it's smaller. it's also a place where there are more unaffiliated voteers than there are democrats or
republicans. when they say independent voters, they mean it in a literal sense. the independent voters, they can wake up on primary day and say maybe i feel like voting for donald trump. maybe i feel like voting for bernie sanders. all the ads hit them at the same time. lots of different appeals are going to happen. that being said, it is a state where hillary clinton has won. it is going to skew to her strengths. it has older voters in some ways. on the other hand, she is 18 points behind. i think what we are going to see is clinton effort to tie him down there, to make him fight for a home state. he's doing that, the clinton campaign, which has superior resources and is already active in a lot of other states can move on and put their ground operation in place in south carolina, nevada and beyond. >> what does that mean tie him down there? how does that look?
>> you don't want to have to work your home state. take an extreme example. if bernie sanders has to spend a lot of time in vermont trying to secure and hold on to his lead. some internals are showing the race is starting to tighten. if he has to spend a lot of time in new hampshire, places where he has never appeared on the ballot, in the sec, super tuesday states, he's going to be pressed. and i think the clinton campaign is going to dress him. >> you have a past and present factor. one, hillary against barack obama. she won by two points. so she's a fighter. and her organization can adapt. so that's one thing you have to be aware of on sanders's time. and you have 40 on our side. who knows what would happen the actual day.
it would be a shocker. this boy in the bubble stuff that governor christie is talking about, is that anything popularized beyond his own mouth? >> is that a seinfeld reference? >> john travolta. it hits you right here. >> the owner of the establishment lane of the party. he could wrap that up if he comes ahead. he needs to come ahead of everybody else, john kasich, jeb bush, chris christie. these other guys are going to have to get out. it's already a three-man race. but he has to finish the job in new hampshire. >> talk about senator tim scott and why this is so significant and so coveted for rubio.
>> sure. well, look, there is a new out there. tim scott, african-american senator. what he is saying by pointing to rubio he is saying, first of all, the establishment lane to say he's acceptable to me. he's an establishment politician. he's a colleague in the senate. and for the new south, the new image of the conservative south that includes people of color, he's the guy, i'm the guy, nikki haley is in our camp. let's bring him in. it's a real boost sort of coming into a place where otherwise he would be fighting with everybody else. the conservative voters in south carolina will very much gravitate towards ted cruz. very welcomed boost for marco
rubio. >> are we setting them up for false expectations? he has to come in and beat all of these other people. if you're looking at the polls, that's not necessarily expected. they are expecting an other to pop up. you expect kasich, christie, bush to make a stronger play here. obviously we're looking at the polls right now. rubio is polling ahead of them. there is an expectation they have been putting the work on the ground. is it a surprise if he doesn't come in third. >> this is the nfl. you have to rise to the occasion and eventually start winning primaries. when does he actually win. to rubio's credit and the credit of his staff, they have been smart about managing expectations. that's why a third place finish counted as a win for rubio. they have been saying a 3-2-1 strategy. third in iowa, second in new hampshire, and then they go on to south carolina and nevada.
look, these are the expectations that they have perpetuated themselves. he needs to do well in new hampshire. he doesn't have to win. but he has to be at the head of that "establishment lane." >> tonight it will be just bernie sanders is and hillary clinton fielding questions from the voters. how does the dynamic change? >> it changes not very much. martin o'malley, unless he does an endorsement this afternoon. i don't know what he was trying to carve out which didn't amount to much in iowa. it is now head to head. and hillary clinton was telling in her victory speech. she said i am a progressive. so she is going to fight with bernie sanders for some of his base. there was a yawning generation gap here that is really extraordinary where all the young people by wide margins went to bernie sanders. we will see if hillary clinton
can try to eat into that. that's what she will try to do. if she wants to reverse those devastating poll numbers, the advantage that bernie sanders has, she is going to have to go over her base. thank you so much. look for cooper to play a lot of policeman. the not mentioning the other one will be gone. moderated by our man anderson cooper. be sure to watch 9:00 p.m. eastern here on cnn. tornados leaving a trail of devastation. this one in western alabama one of six reported. the threat continues. several homes and mobile homes were heavily damaged, as were the office of the federal prison in pickens. no deaths or major injuries reported >> a troubling turn in the
outbreak of the zika virus. a patient in dallas contracted the virus through sexual trance myself. it is the first known case on u.s. soil. they are now urging the use of condoms to battle the virus. nip who visits take 28 days before giving blood. a blast rips hole in plane shortly after takeoff. a person went through that hole caused by the blast and fell to their death. the flight was 12,000 feet above the ground when the explosion happened. two other people were injured. the pilot was somehow able to land safely. our sources say initial tests came back positive for explosive residue. but the investigation is ongoing. >> powerful enough to blow a hole but not bring the plane
down. back to politics. marco rubio riding high after his strong third place finish. i sat down with him after he touched down in new hampshire. and he did not minutes words about his critics. >> sometimes fema don't react well to adversity. they will say things later on they will regret. >> who was the florida senator talking about? that answer next. if i want to go up... hello. or if i want to go down... no. but then if i want to come back again... yes. it's perfect. my favorite part is to be able to lift your legs up a little bit and it feels like i'm just cradled.

ted cruz won iowa. but most of the gop rivals now focusing their attacks on marco rubio after his strong caucus finish. i sat down with him after he arrived in the granite state to talk about his critics, his strategy, and his favorite music. senator, thanks so much for sit issing down with us. have you had any sleep? >> a little bit. just enough. maybe three, four hours. i'm fine. >> at what point did you realize
iowa was going very differently? >> we felt that way moving in. the last 10 days we were there working. we felt good about people who were deciding our way. we were always very confident about our plan. obviously, we had a historic turnout. when you went to the caucus centers they were putting out double the number of chairs than they ever put out. it tells you how engaged and interested people are in this election. i'm glad they are. this is a generation. >> just peel back the curtain. what was happening as you were watching? >> i went to four separate caucus sites and spoke. by the time i got to the hotel the results had pretty much already started coming in. we knew we were going to do well in certain parts of the state. the numbers were trending up. we got more votes than the winners of the last three iowa caucuses did. i really thank the people of iowa. our ground team was fantastic and phenomenal.
it gave us great momentum in the new hampshire. >> so now here you are in new hampshire. you wake up in a different state. there are different voters. >> i went to sleep in a different state. we got here at 1:30 in the morning. we have a great team here today. we feel real good about it. what people are going to start realizing is i give us the best chance to nominate a real conservative who can unite the party, grow the party, take our message to people who haven't voted for us in the past and defeat hillary clinton or bernie sanders. they admit i am the one they don't want to run against. ultimately, that's why i think i will be the nominee. >> what do you do differently? >> the electorate has a little different background. we have to nominate someone that can win. take our principles, grow this party and win. that's what i give us the chance
to do. someone who is president will reverse the damage barack obama has done. keep america ebb safe. that's what i will do when i'm president. >> new hampshire doesn't have the evangelical vote iowa does. there are different values here. >> i always said the campaign we launched will be the message i have in november of this year. i'm not running two separate campaigns or eight separate campaigns. i believe america's days are within our reach but not if we stay on the road we are on right now. i have the most detailed policy of anybody running for president on on either side. and that's going to be my message no matter where i am and no matter what stage in the process i have been. >> your rivals have been talking about you. jeb bush called you a back bencher. trump has called you the kid can. chris christie just called you the boy in the bubble. you and cruz have exchanged some words. what's your response?
>> when people attack you, they don't attack when you're not doing so well. jeb's comment openly told people i should be the vice president in 2012 when romney was going through the process. the only thing that changed between thepbl and now is we are both running for president. sometimes people don't react well to adversity. i'm not run to go beat up on other republicans. i'm run to go unify this party and ensure our next president is nothing like the one we have now. >> as you know, immigration is is a big issue in this election. you and all of our rivals want to secure the
border. what do you do next? >> not just secure the border. people have to have confidence that you have done it. i do not believe having worked on this issue now for a long
time, including just permanently having come from the background that i come from, that the american people will support anything on immigration until first they believe that illegal immigration is truly under control. that means finishing the wall, fence, entry and exit system, verify. only after that's in place and working can we go to the american people and see what they are willing to support. i don't think the american people expect us to roundup and deport 12 million people. if you're a criminal, you won't believe able to stay no matter what. they shouldn't be able to stay right now. i don't know if the american people will support it. but the idea of allowing people who have been here a long time, pay a fine, start paying taxes, they get a work permit. that's all they will have for at least a decade. we will see what the american people are willing to support through unconstitutional executive orders the way this president has done it now.
>> on the trail, what are you listening to? >> people know this the last couple years i have gotten into electronics dance music. calvin harris. i like it because the lyrics are clean and i can listen
to it in front of my kids. i used to be a big hip-hop fan. >> i know you said "straight outta compton". >> i want to see the movie. i think ice cube's son looks just like him. and eazy-e passed away. eminem will will play in his role in reunion. >> senator, thanks for taking your time. >> you just talked eazy-e. >> he speaks fluent hip-hop.
edm. >> he needs to do more of that going forward. it is something that he could really own as saying this is who i am. >> it's more organic for him it seems. >> totally authentic. that's his lane. >> he's going to be an interesting time for him to see how he deals with all guns pointed at him as a freshman senator. it will be interesting to see. >> he was energized. despite the lack of sleep, he stopped at every booth. >> we know the older you get the harder it is on you impressive in terms of the energy. up next, a cnn exclusive. is the u.s. building a secret airfield in syria to ramp up the war on isis? we are the only network taking you there. we'll do that next. the microsoft cloud allows us to

for ways to step up the campaign against isis. a small airstrip is being lengthen said. the pentagon only saying u.s. force in syria are consistently looking for ways to increase efficiency. our clarissa ward is the first to visit that airfield deeping relationship with the u.s. and its kurdish allies. >> reporter: good morning, michaela. as the u.s. ratchets up its military presence on the ground inside syria with 50 special forces troops in country, they are looking for new allies who can be trusted. and they're also exploring new military means of taking the fight to isis and not just through air strikes, as we saw for ourselves. this place doesn't exist, according to the u.s. defense department. but behind that berm of freshly dug earth, a small agricultural
airstrip is being turned into something very different. a military airfield just 100 miles from isis positions. satellite photos show the work that has been done here in recent months. >> so you can see behind me they are working to extend the run way so larger planes can land here. it is well inside kurdish territory. it could be used to supply u.s. special forces here in syria. we were escorted away from the airfield as soon as we were spotted, told it is a military zone. sit another example of the u.s. military footprint in the remote corner of northern syria. and its deepest relationship with kurdish fighters known as the ypg. in an abandoned apartment building closer to the front line, we were given access to the ypg's joint operations room. it is a modest setup.
21-year-old and his colleagues talked to men on the field. they pass on enemy locations to a coalition command center from where air strikes can be launched. right now this is the front line of has qaa, he says. our comrades have seen the movement of two enemy fighters. we sent this message, along with coordinates to the general command room. the operation room moves to the front lines. immediately after the strikes, hsaqi and his men rush in to make sure the right moves have been hit. who taught you how to use this? he said a group of foreigners and americans trained him, who in turned trained his comrades. it is not just the u.s. expanding their presence inside syria. less than 50 miles from the
airstrip there are reports that the russians are also expanding their military presence. certainly this is becoming a very crowded neighborhood. chris. >> clarissa, thank you very much for having the bravery and resolve to take us there, an important dimension in the story. what is the challenge for hillary clinton with young voters? is there a strategy change coming? our panel will discuss as it all comes down to the town hall tonight. and the lowest taxes in decades, attracting the talent and companies of tomorrow. like in the hudson valley, with world class biotech. and on long island, where great universities are creating next generation technologies. let us help grow your company's tomorrow, today at business.ny.gov (politely) wait, wait, wait! you ...you have to rinse it first. that's baked-on alfredo.

for the first time tonight, just the two democrats competing on stage with real voters. the cnn town hall at 9:00 p.m. eastern in new hampshire comes just a week before the primary there. clinton has considerable ground to make up. sanders, the senator from neighboring vermont, has a healthy poll advantage. let's discuss. senior adviser to bill clinton richard and associate professor on the city university of new york peter byron. good to have you both here this morning. what did we see against barack obama in that all important election for hillary clinton. he won in iowa. huge momentum. expected to carry it in new hampshire but he didn't. why? what changes from iowa to new hampshire that gives hillary clinton a little bit better footing? >> well, she's coming off a win.
a win is a win, right? we wish she had won by a little bit bigger margin. >> to you a win is a win. >> a win is a win. i think she has momentum. those of us who followed hillary clinton for a long time know she is best under pressure, whether on the campaign trail or the situation room. she is the best candidate she can be right before the election. i think in that town hall you did right before iowa, i have never seen herbert. never sharper, crisper. i think she will have a very good week. i think bernie is in for a rough week. he is beginning to sound like a politician. he is refusing to concede. the night after the cnn town hall. it will be an interesting week. a lot can change. >> sanders was never contesting
the vote. the state party hadn't come out and declared it yet. they declared hillary clinton the winner. she gets the extra delegates. they move on. what has to change for both in new hampshire? ? i think hillary clinton will be lucky to stay within 10 points of bernie sanders. new hampshire is a terrible state for her. >> why? >> even worse than iowa. bernie sanders is strongest among white liberals. new hampshire has a higher percentage than does iowa. hillary clinton just needs to try to keep it as close as possible. i would be shocked if she could win in new hampshire. her real strength is in south carolina. bernie sappeders has not been able to match her at all. >> bernie sanders is if you are a have not, i am for you. i want to even the playing field. you would think that should play to lower socioeconomic strata
and to minority voters. but clinton beats him why? >> she has had a record for caring for women, children, for people who need special help or who need the kind of attention that she's devoted her life to. from the very beginning when she devoted her life to helping women and children as a lawyer. so i think she has that reputation of really being in sync with the democratic base. and i think she has a specific plan. it's interesting you're talking about young voters. i mean, look what sanders did in iowa he said tuition will be free, even if you can afford it. i'm going to forgive student debt. i'm going to throw in universal health care. that is a message that's a a appealing to young people. the plans don't add up. and i think people will see that in new hampshire.
it is interesting to see 10%. i think it will be close. i think she will surprise people. and she will go into south carolina is and nevada with the expectations shifted. >> how do you feel about that take, which is that this is good for hillary clinton. she's getting beaten up early. because once you get out of new hampshire, the demographics shift. her organizational emphasis shifts. and she will start to roll. do you accept that? >> even against barack obama. he was the clear front-runner. she was still beating him in state where the white population was more moderate. placed like pennsylvania, west virginia. >> now, did that play to a dynamic that is not at play here? was that in part in your estimation? because barack obama was the on novel african-american candidate. yes. although there is a lot i like about bernie sanders, there are questions whether he can break out beyond his white liberal base. both to the conservative white
voters who don't accept the idea of a socialist. if he can start to break her lock on african-american voters, then it's an entirely different race, a different ball game. so far we haven't seen any evidence of that. the clintons have a reservoir of support. think about bill clinton in his hour of need during impeachment. there is a deep relationship that barack obama is cementing in a way with his almost de facto endorsement of hillary clinton that i think it's hard to beat. >> and hillary clinton is very embracing of president obama. there is a synergy there she hopes moves forward. thank you very much. tonight is a big deal. what are you looking for? tweet us at "new day". post on facebook.com/newday. tonight 9:00 p.m. eastern. derry, new hampshire. a week before the primary. you're going to see something different.
this is not a debate. this is sanders and clinton talking to you. anderson cooper will be directing the questions to make sure they are answered. how do they deal with real voters? and when they are talk to go people like you and me. >> it will be interesting to watch. a water in flint is getting a congressional spotlight. we will speak to a michigan congressman getting ready to testify before congress. [woodworker] i live in the fine details.
so now i'm not being perky, telling you that drivers that switch to progressive save an average of $548! whoo! i mean, whoo. donald trump conceding his boycott may have cost him in iowa. he said he would do it all again. today he will campaign in the south. bernie sanders and hillary clinton are preparing for their second town hall. that is tonight at 9:00 eastern >> we have new information in the kidnapping and murder of 13-year-old nicole lavelle
allegedly at the hands of ava va tech student. authorities believe is she was stabbed to death the day she went missing from her blacksburg home last week. they are tracing social media to determine the nature and extent of the relationship. the funeral for lavelle is tuesday. it is time for women to register for the draft. army and marine corps. generals testified they are in favor of the move during the senate hearing. their testimony follows the recent decision to open all combat jobs to women. right now virtually all men between 18 and 26 must register to make sure they are not shorthanded during a time of war. sports talk now. panthers quarterback cam newton talking on all questions at the super bowl media day ahead of super bowl 50. he was visibly tired, however,
of one topic, that of race. we have more in the bleacher report. andy. >> newton was asked why he did so much criticism for the way he celebrates on the field. he said they may not be comfortable with an african-american quarterback that plays the way he does. he was peppered with questions. >> i don't want to touch on that. i think we limit ourselves when we just label ourselves black, this, that, and the third i wanted to bring awareness of that. yeah, i don't think i should be labeled just a black quarterback. ryan murphy and his brother were detained and questioned in connection with a prostitution ring. he has been sent home by the team. local media is reporting
murphy's brother was cited for solicitation. we have seen this at the super bowl before. in 1999, robinson was arrested for solicitation the night before the super bowl. ironically, chris, robinson spoke to the panthers yesterday on behalf of ron rivera to say don't get in trouble this week. >> murphy was to not have any connection to it. he was sent home anyway. they said it was better for the team. appreciate it. when we come back, we've got to keep our eye on the water crisis in flint, michigan. finally getting the attention of capitol hill today. we will speak with a congressman who will be on the hot seat about what he plans to say and what he's disappointed will not be happening. be good.

today the investigation into the flint, michigan water crisis moves to washington. the house oversight and government reform committee is is holding a hearing today trying to get to the bottom of how that contamination problem got so out of control and what, more importantly, can be done to fix it. joining us now is dan kilty. a busy day for you. appreciate you making time to join us ahead of those talks. you represent the district of flint. what is going to be your message today as you testify? i want flint to have a voice in this conversation. my message to the committee will be, number one, flint did not do this to itself. the state of michigan, through its emergency manager and the failures of the department of environmental quality, created this situation that caused lead to go into the homes of 100,000 people. mainly what i'm looking for is
justice for the people of flint. not just an apology, people to be fired or prosecuted but justice in the form of help to that community so it can get back on a positive path. fixing pipes for sure. buff really focusing on the needs of the kids that will need help. >> you talk about the people responsible. sit really astound to go many people to learn not only will the governor not testify, but the former flint emergency manager won't show the former head of department of environmental quality won't. i i want you to listen to what the top ranking democrat on that very committee had this to say. at wednesday's hearing, we won't hear from the governor or emergency managers in flint or anyone else from the state who was involved in making decisions that led to the crisis. it undermines the credibility of the committee and subjects. the committee took accusations of partisanship.
how can the people of flint and the rest of americans take these kind of proceedings seriously if the very people that are responsible aren't going to be there to testify? >> well, congressman cummings makes a very good point. this hearing will fall short. and the people who actually did this. let's be clear. these were state of michigan decisions. the people won't be present at the hearing. there is a public relations campaign funded by dark money that the governor has raised into a private account. they're trying to say that, no, it wasn't the state. it was the city. well, it wasn't the city because they had no power. or it was the epa. it's a preposterous argument. but it is what we're going to hear today. we will hear people from the state representing the state trying to say it was not the state of michigan.
there will be the new director of the department of environmental quality, keith gray, who is a good guy. but he wasn't there when any of the decisions were made. he is in no position to testify on behalf of the state about what they knew and when they knew it. this is an opportunity for us to tell flint's story, but we won't hear from the people who were responsible. >> what's frustrating is when an event gets so politically criticized, the story of the most people affected and affected for life, will get forgotten. how much longer do you think the people in flint can take what is is happening to their water? this is dire. >> well, they've had it. this is terrible. they didn't start using corrosion control until december. everything the state has done has been focused on their public relations problem and not
actually trying to fix the problems in flint. they need to help the health of the people of flint above their reputations. so far they have not done that? you have quite a day ahead of you. cnn will be watching this. the story of the people of flint will be told. congressman, thanks for joining us today. >> thanks, michaela. >> how the candidates are making their case in new hampshire. let's get to it. >> look us in the eye and determine who is telling the truth and who is blowing smoke. >> if i'm nominee, we are going to beat hillary clinton. and it won't be by the flip of a coin. i promise you that. >> i'm putting up my own money. and i don't know that the voters appreciate it. stkph i think the people of new hampshire will get a chance to really evaluate both of us. and i feel good about my prospects. >> we are going to win next tuesday. and with your help, that's what will happen.
thank you all. bill cosby back in court today. >> a judge must decide whether there was an unwritten agreement back in 2005 not to prosecute cosby that precludes the current charges. this is "new day" with chris cuomo, alisyn camerota and michaela pereira. >> the political winds are shifting. ted cruz and marco rubio depending off attacks six days before new hampshire voters head to the holes. >> donald trump doing post analysis. he admits skipping the last debate may have cost him in iowa said he would make the same decision again. hillary clinton and bernie sanders getting ready for their second town hall tonight on cnn. let's begin the 2016 coverage with cnn sarah murally live in manchester for us. good morning, sarah.
>> reporter: good morning, alisyn. of course ted cruz wants another victory in new hampshire to make it a winning streak. lots of high stakes and not a lot of time left. >> reporter: less than a week from the new hampshire primary, donald trump is blasting ted cruz. >> ben carson quit. and let me have your vote. what kind of crap is this? >> reporter: trump slamming the senator after his team told caucusgoers that ben carson planned to quit the race. >> i apologize to that. they should have forwarded that subsequent story. that was a mistake >> reporter: and continue to go bring up his canadian birth. >> he gets the nomination, they're going to sue. >> i hardly think that donald trump is insulting me. >> reporter: cruz now preparing for battle in new hampshire.
and even looking ahead to south carolina, hoping for a boost from the southern evangelical vote. >> we're going to continue to do what we did in iowa here on the ground in new hampshire and south carolina. >> reporter: while trump, banking on his popularity in new hampshire, hopes to avoid is the same mistakes he made in iowa. >> had i known i was going to be liked as much as i am in iowa, is and people did like me, you would understand that, i maybe would have spent a little more and maybe i would have won it. >> both top-tier candidates perplexed over the highly publicized third place showing in iowa. >> we have been joking that bronze is the new gold. >> the winner of the night, marco rubio. trump, humiliated. >> rubio capitalizing on his momentum in this small new england state, asserting his electability. >> do you know who does not want to run against me? bernie sanders and hillary clinton. they know if i'm the nominee they lose and i win.
it's why they attack me more than any other republican in this race. they don't want to run against me. but i can't wait to run against them. stkpwhrr in his press conference he was loathe to admit he made any mistakes in iowa. but on fox news he said they would have done better if they had built a ground game there. that is tough to turn around in seven days. we will see if donald trump can do it. >> sara, we new he had a fight on his hands in iowa. new hampshire, a different story. he is very strong in that state and across the country. iowa does raise the question should he start doing anything differently. let's bring in somebody who wants to make the case. arizona state treasurer and trump surrogate jeff dewitt. good to have you on "new day", sir. >> chris, it's great to be here. >> trump is is benefiting from
open mike on another morning show. when untested, he just goes after his opponents the whole ti time. is iowa a little bit of a wake call that he should try something differently in new hampshire and going forward? >> no, not at all. iowa is a very, very positive event for the campaign. here we have our opponents basically depleting their accounts. you had senator cruz going all out. that campaign pulled out all the stops for the win. they did that dirty trick to win ben carson voters. they did that mailer that showed their campaign knows more information than the nsa does and scared a lot of people. and i don't know if you saw that e-mail, the cruz campaign sent out. that night, the same night of the victory, said, they had all but depleted their political accounts. what did they walk away with?
senator cruz walked away with eight delegates and trump walked away with seven. and they are treating it like this huge win. i think it is a very, very positive event for us. in put it in perspective, in iowa, 30 total delegates up for grabs. here there are 58. in a winner take allstate, trump has a double tkeuplg it lead, similar to new hampshire and south carolina. so this is going to start to be a runaway victory for the trump campaign. for that campaign, for senator cruz's campaign to throw everything they had and walk away with only one extra delegate, they have to be having a hawk eye hangover right now. >> hawk eye hangover. that's a good phrase you've got this. let's look at this point by point. first of all, let's just be clear about this. i heard it from donald trump and now from you. you believe the cruz campaign intentionally used deceptive and
dirty tactics where carson was involved and in multiple mailers and suggestions to voters. do you think this is something that ted cruz was fully aware of and engineering on all accounts? >> well, it's dirty politics 101. i can't tell for sure if senator cruz knew or not. but it's dirty politics. with a lot of campaigns it's over in one night. when you look at a senator primary, that would be over in one night. so if you drop all of these things on somebody and say things about your opponent and the next day you come out and apologize, well, the race is over. where the miss calculation was you can't do that in this kind of race where that is only the first state. and to do that now. obviously the campaign already had to come out and apologize. senator cruz apologized himself. that tells you right there that something had gone on. look what was said about ben carson. if i were the carson campaign, quite frankly i would be livid
about that. like i said, dirty politics 101. now they are paying the price obviously for it from a public perception standpoint. it's not good. >> in terms of playing politics and the plus/minus. last week you called trump's decision not to participate an amazing show of leadership. now he has said, i think that may have hurt me in iowa. do you see it differently now? >> no. i think it was. it shows -- that debate turned out to be just a bad deal. and we always wish that our leaders had the strength to back out of bad deals. >> how is it a bad deal? the voters expect to hear from the candidates. that was his obligation to them. he didn't fulfill it. and it seemed that it mattered in the polls. because momentum shifted. if you look at the numbers, the people who decided the last few days slanted away from trump.
>> look what he did in the meantime. he raised $6 million for the vets. he said -- don't forget what he also just said is doing over it again he would do the same thing. he would rather raise $6 million for the vets than show up on the debate stage. >> he could do that today. he could raise $5 million for vets. he could have every event he does between now and the end of his campaign for vets. he could do that any day he wants to do it. he didn't have to do it that day. >> and certainly that won't be the last time. it's his passion. when he's i think you will see our vets taken care of in much better fashion than they have been previously? what do you make on the case with marco rubio? he gets very close to trump in iowa. same delegates. close in overall votes. now being called to unify the party at least for the moment.
we'll see what happens in new hampshire? what is the trump advantage over rubio, in your opinion? >> well, the american people have already made it clear that they are looking for something different. they are looking for a conservative political outsider and something not part of the establishment. the problem that rubio has is his entire working life has been a lawyer/politician. he is as entrenched with the establishment as you can get. now that he has risen up to the number one spot, he is going to have to deal with. the credit card scandal in florida. he had a republican party credit card he was going around and spending on. there were personal expenses showing up on there. so that's going to come up now and be a big question. some of these things where he wasn't really paid attention to now is going to be an issue. as we saw with senator cruz and
his canadian birth. that wasn't too big an issue once he was low. now the questions have to be asked. some of the previous things are going to now surface and give voters pause. >> jeff dewitt, appreciate you being on "new day", making a case for donald trump. >> thank you, chris. thanks for having me. the duo getting ready to make their final pitch to voters in tonight's cnn town hall. joe johnsis live in new hampshire with the latest ahead of that. hi, joe. >> reporter: good morning, michaela. while bernie sanders has been leading in the polls here for months, this is all about expectation. he will be speaking so expand on essentially what is a home field advantage. hillary clinton will be trying to appear competitive in a state where the polls appear to be against her.
>> i feel really great being back in new hampshire after winning in iowa and having a chaps to come here. >> reporter: riding high on the narrowest victory in caucus history, hillary clinton taking the showdown over votes in new hampshire. >> we fought secretary clinton through a virtual tie. we have not even seen all the breakdowns of the election results. >> reporter: bernie sanders feeling good about his odds on the granite state where he has been polling for months. his double digit lead fueling his confidence. >> if we can win here in new hampshire -- let me rephrase it. when we win here in new hampshire >> reporter: while clinton won the primary in 2008, the state has often supported neighboring politicians, possibly giving sanders an edge.
after narrowly beating hillary clinton in iowa, the democratic socialist said he raised a staggering sum, $3 million online in 24 hours, commanding a huge base of support among younger, newer voters. secretary clinton vying for the chance to take back some of that support. >> i'm going to have to work to do to reach out to young voters, and i intend to do that. >> i'm looking forward to every opportunity. i know people here have choice.
>> reporter: without a clear winner in iowa, both candidates being forced to bear down in new hampshire trying to draw some contrast with the new hampshire primary just a week away. chris and alisyn. twisters through alabama and mississippi. chad myers joins us now with more. this is scary stuff, chad. >> alisyn, last night, boy, it sure popped up. it did rather quickly. tornados on the ground,
mississippi and alabama. the damage looks like an ef-3, maybe ef-4 damage. initially nine reports of damage. probably not all the storm reports will hold up because they will be from the same tornado. so likely more like six. today we're talking about rush hour problems and travel problems through atlanta and hartsfield. big storms through the city right now. i know you're saying, okay, that's atlanta. what about for me in the northeast? yes, it's coming. but it's coming for your evening rush hour. how about that? 5:00 or 6:00 don't, the northeast, it starts to rain just as you are trying to get home for dinner. it will be a late night for a lot of folks in the northeast. no significant tornados today. that was yesterday. but the potential for flooding. chris. >> push buttons, make things happen, and change the weather. >> that's my job. so south korea and japan on
alert, condemning north korea's plan to launch a satellite later this month. the state department slamming a launch saying it would violate various resolutions. u.s. expert saying it is likely a cover for intercontinental ballistic missile testing. all of this on the heels of the test.y condemned hydrogen bomb >> it is an unusual solution to a stop pesky drones from flying where they shouldn't be. they are training bald eagles to swoop in, snatch drones. they say it is a low tech solution for the high-tech problem. >> is it feeding the drone? >> i don't think they can be fed. they use radio signals to ground rogue drones. that's the key point here. rogue drones. not, you know, nice drones used
for proper purposes. >> old school to new school. >> yes. >> what do you think, john? >> john likes droning and droning on. >> and eagles. >> see there. he exists. you thought we were making up his voice in our head. >> droning on. >> hillary clinton and bernie sanders getting ready for tonight's cnn town hall ahead of the new hampshire primary. what do new hampshire voters want to ask them? prilosec otc. one pill each morning. 24 hours. zero heartburn.

sports freaks. x1 from xfinity will change the way you experience tv. the new hampshire primary less than a away. hillary clinton and bernie sanders working hard to woo supporters. >> intriguing. joining us to discuss our new cnn political contributor bernie sanders support, author of buyer's remorse." how obama let progress if's down. and democratic strategist hilary ros rosen. how do you see this going to convention, sir? >> well, if you're bernie
sanders and you come within 0.3 of hillary clinton in iowa, you win new hampshire and you do well rest of the primaries. and you've got all of these young people for them. and you can raise as much money as he has with the millions of contributions of an average of $27. >> that is not the picture that seems pragmatic. >> candidates get out for one reason. they don't get out because they're tired or they have to go to florida and get a change. they run out of money. bernie sanders is not going to run out of money, neuer ideas. >> hilary, in 2008, the primary stretched much longer than anybody predicted. >> it could very well happen. bill is exactly right. in the primary we have this proportional delegate allocation. if you remember in 2008, hillary
clinton kept a massing delegates all along the way everyone though barack obama was slightly ahead. that will happen for bernie sanders. having this money will give him the ability to compete. he has a smart team. so hillary clinton's strategy has got to be keep him doing well in places like new hampshire where they have fewer delegates in new hampshire than any of the four primaries. if he wins new hampshire, not that big a deal. south carolina, keep those numbers down. nevada, keep those numbers down. and then just keep going into the larger states. >> why do you see such an easy analogy between sanders and barack obama in 2008? >> they are not the same candidate, but the process is the same. what we learned in iowa, at least i did, you have two serious candidates here. >> sure. >> you have two really good teams. god knows the clinton people are the best. they are solid. they know their stuff. and i think they have shown they
are in for the long haul. >> here's the big difference between here and 2008, which is democratic voters really, really want to win. i mean, when you survey democratic voters, their passion to keep the white house is intense. the more that bernie sanders puts forward a vision that the majority of democratic voters will not agree with, will not see as electable in the fall, that will put additional pressure on him. you didn't have that in 2008. you didn't have that huge divide of approach with hillary clinton and barack obama. you have two different personalities. with sanders and clinton, we will see it tonight, tomorrow night, you have two different visions of the democrats. >> the firewall hillary clinton has where african-american voters traditionally support her and not bernie saplders. why do you reject the notion of a firewall? >> inning it is b.s. a big myth. >> she does have more
african-american voters, yes? >> sure, she does. look, no doubt about it. >> we know she is polling stronger in those states. >> she has the experience and the record working with them, which bernie sanders does not. the issues that he's talking about. if you talk about expanding social security, talk about ex expanding medicare, if you're talking about free college tuition for everybody. if you're talking about basically leveling the playing field, that is across the country not just white iowa o. community policing issues, on criminal justice reform, issues that directly touch the african-american community, he has been strong. >> this is what we're going to see. it's interesting. his civil rights work was mostly done in vermont. not exactly a hotbed? he did go south. >> this is what we're going to see tonight i think. can hillary clinton convince
voters that her record, that her ledge slating, that her record of action on these issues does something that makes bernie sanders be as much as an established candidate. the guy has been in office 25 years in congress i think we will see a lot of activity between the two of them over what they have done on these issues, not just what they are saying. >> i think this is fun. i believe bernie sanders is the one who represents change. it is hard to make the case. hillary, as good as she is, and i supported her over barack obama in 2008, she does not represent change. she is the establishment. you can't make bernie the establishment. >> the guy has been in congress for 25 years. that's going to be -- if hillary clinton can just make a little headway out of this point in particular, that in essence they are both politicians, that can be a victory. >> he's been an outsider.
>> i hear you. she's making the case don't you want efficiency. don't you want to get it done. don't you want someone who knows their way around the halls? that's her argument to people. maybe they want that. >> he has to show what change he has made or can make. that's his biggest issue. the advantage is he has a level of enthusiasm with young voters that she has yet to capture. that implies change even if he doesn't have the record for change. and that's the challenge? i have more experience, i have more experience, that was her argument in 2008 as president barack obama remembers. >> i hear what you're saying, bill. bill and hilary, wow, thank you guys. interesting. >> color coordinated as well. >> something is going on here. >> a little will and jada going on today. >> thanks so much, guys. remember to tune in tonight.

a federal judge refuse to go grant the request of a key suspect in connection with a deadly assault in benghazi. he remains held on murder and conspiracy charges for the 2012 attack on the u.s. embassy there which claimed the lives of four americans, including u.s. ambassador chris steve else. he could face the death penalty if convicted. his attorneys are pushing for him to be sent back to libya, a move they believe might spare his life. new information about the helicopter crash that killed 12 u.s. marines off the coast of hawaii. officials say trace elements of dna were found during search and
rescue operations last month. the navy diving unit is going to use under water robots for recovery and salvage which could take several months. the cause of the crash is still under investigation. the number of criminal exonerations hitting a record high in 2015. according to a new report, 149 people were exonerated in the u.s. last year after being wrongly convicted of crimes. that is more than any other year. a third were convicted of murder. five people were rescued from death row before being cleared, they served an average of 14 years in prison. >> lady gaga is having a big month. the pop store is kicking off super bowl sunday. she will sing the national anthem at the big game. later this month, she will pay tribute to david bowie at the grammy awards. gaga will put on a multisensory tribute directed by nile rogers who worked on the 1983 hit let's
dance. the one and only david bowie died at age 69 last month. >> anything about david bowie is special. all eyes on new hampshire as it becomes a three-man race on the republican side. marco rubio's strong third place finish means he is the establishment candidate? let us bring in purveyor michael smerconish. a little bit on the schneid. do you believe he is the man after just one tally? >> i'm not convinced. i have long said this ultimately would be the mavericks and the establishment and that someone would emerge from the class. i'm not ruling out john kasich. chris christie is a longer shot. jeb bush still has game. but i will say this. i think new hampshire will resolve whomever among that group is going to be best poised
to take on cruz or trump. >> do you think it's funny, michael, in terms of the post vote analysis that somehow marco rubio's third place finish is eclipsing even donald trump's second place finish or ted cruz's first place finish? >> i think it is to rubio's credit that he so masterfully managed the prediction. he set the bar. and i said on cnn the night of the iowa caucus that as he came out and delivered that speech, i can't imagine the speech that marco rubio delivered would have been much different from a speech that he had delivered had he been the first place finish. to cruz's point and trump's point, i think they're right in saying, wait a minute, what about us? i was number one and i was number two. but marco rubio recognizes that coming out of iowa was most important for what it does pertaining to the momentum in new hampshire. because new hampshire is a much more accurate barometer i think of where this is going generally. >> well, there is some
truthiness to what he said. he was not expected he was up six to eight points from where the polls had him. that matters. he got the same number of delegates as trump did. that matters. he was within a tickle of trump. that matters. >> wow. >> so the idea that he is making the case, he is the biggest shock.
>> the more you look at the data the more you realize within the republican party donald trump is loved by a few. he is disliked by many. he has the highest negatives within the gop. and the only reason trump has been able to do so well in the polling so far is because there are so many other individuals on that stage. and when the choices are fewer, i think that you're going to see his support level dissipate because someone else will have higher numbers.
so temporarily it's trump. and it's cruz and it's mr. or ms. x. but beyond new hampshire, i don't know that he maintains, meaning trump that, position. >> michael, i know this is a big left turn i know sit a story you have been covering and you want to talk about. there are developments in the bill cosby case. >> wow. >> the former d.a. in your area there in philadelphia who chose not to move forward with a case years ago is now speaking out. tell us the headline of what's happening there. >> the headline is maybe as soon as today, the only criminal prosecution of bill cosby is pending whether it will go forward. and yesterday for six hours in that courthouse, there was one witness. it was the former d.a. who
decided he could not meet his criminal burden pack in 2005. he did not bring charges against cosby. yesterday on the stand he said to the defense lawyers, hey, i'm not on your team. and yet his team very much was exactly what bill cosby would hope that he would say and that is, i made a decision that i couldn't prosecute him. i conveyed that to cosby's criminal defense attorney. that's why cosby did not plead the fifth amendment. instead, in his civil deposition he gave full answers. i wanted to help that woman, the accuser, become a millionaire. that's what he said. i wanted to help her in her civil case. if he is to be believed the judge will conclude this prosecution could not go on, cannot go on against cosby. but at the end of the take the judge himself questioned kastor and was most interested to know, why didn't you put it in writing?
so the judge did not tip his hand yesterday as to which way this goes. but today is a big day in the cosby case. >> michael, thank you for updating us on that. so many people around the country are watching to see what will happen with him. thank you. >> thanks, guys. >> we'll take a break. the stakes are higher for everybody who did well. it's one of the kind of backhanded parts of politics. you do well with more pressure on you. ted cruz won iowa. now accusations of dirty politics. from ben carson's campaign, trump, and others, we get reaction from ted cruz's campaign next. ...you need new theraflu expressmax. theraflu expressmax combines... maximum strength medicines available without a prescription... ...to fight your worst cold and flu symptoms... ...so you can feel better fast and get back to the job at hand. new theraflu expressmax. the power to feel better.tm

the new hampshire primary is less than a week away. the candidates are already on the attack. ben carson accusing tetd cruz's campaign of dirty tricks for saying ben carson was dropping out of the race. the campaign has apologized but it may not be enough. rick tiler, good morning. >> good morning. how are you? >> i'm well. let's try to figure out what's going on. for people who don't know the history, there was this erroneous message that your camp put out that ben carson, after the iowa caucuses was going to be getting out of the race. it was a misunderstanding. and your camp -- in fact, senator ted cruz apologized for it. ben carson says that he accepted that apology, but it doesn't sound as though it's exactly gone away. let me read the statement that
ben carson put out about all of this. he said these dirty tricks, political tactics are part of the reason dr. carson got into this race and reflects the washington values of win at all costs regardless of the damage to the country, which he is trying to change. this incident further demonstrates that we need an individual who is not a politician to lead and to heal our nation, not someone driven by ambition. what's your response to his apology that is somewhat barbed? >> first of all, let's go through what happened. cnn chris moody reported out that ben carson was not going to go to new hampshire or south carolina. he was going to florida for a calm of days of r&r, and attend a prayer breakfast in d.c. that is a significant campaign development. when people say they are not coming to new hampshire immediately and begin a campaign, a as most have done, or go to south carolina, that's
an indication. that's a newsworthy development. rereport to all of our surrogates. now, that was all happening right a as the caucuses were going on. i learned about what dr. carson said during the caucus. it may be some of our caucus precinct captains heard what we had sent around to the entire campaign and went too far. meaning interpreting that he was going to florida forest and relaxation instead of campaigning here in new hampshire as somehow he was dropping out of the race. we never indicated he was dropping out of the race or campaign. we never indicated somehow he was stepping back or suspending his campaign. that's all misinformation. if someone who represented the cruz campaign had indeed said carson was dropping out, that was factually in error and wrong and that's what we apologized
for. >> let's talk about his acceptance of your apology. he said not someone driven by ambition. that sounds like a direct reference to ted cruz. and he says these dirty tricks, political tactics. that sounds like a direct reference to your campaign. how are you responding? >> well, it wasn't a dirty trick. he apologize and dr. carson accepted the apology. there was no dirty trick. we reported an item that cnn had itself reported out and conveyed it the way it was reported out as cnn. we do that all the time. there are dozens of articles that come out every single day. we share them throughout the campaign so everybody understands what's going on during the campaign. >> chris moody tweet thad out but simultaneously says ben carson tells me he plans to stay in the race no matter what the
results are tonight. so somehow your campaign had missed that. >> no, no, no. we never communicated that he was stepping out of the race. we reported exactly what chris moody said, that he was not coming to new hampshire. this is a little like the playoff games. we're in the playoff games. we want to go to the super bowl. instead of the playoff games, it's hard to go to the super bowl if you don't play in the playoff games. we were reporting that he was going to florida, d.c. and not to new hampshire or south carolina. that's significant. that's why chris pointed it out. in no way did we say he would not compete or suspend his campaign. if somebody took it too far, we apologize for that. >> dr. carson was calling for whoever was in your camp to lose their job for that misunderstanding. will that happen? >> there was no understanding. exactly what was put out is
exactly what dr. carson was doing. i'm a little lost on what he is calling for. >> got it. let's talk about what happened in iowa. >> sure. >> is there any frustration in your camp that somehow marco rubio's third place win seeps by pundits to be eclipsing ted cruz's first place win? >> i know a lot of people like marco rubio. marco is to the left of the party. ted cruz is in the center of the party. it seems to me if you want someone to mobilize the base in the general election, you want someone in the center, not to the left. the fact of the matter is if he is the chief sponsor of the gang of eight, we will just lose to the democrats. i understand the media is excited. that des moines register endorsed him pause they like his amnesty policy too. but the people like ted cruz, we won decisively. we were behind in the des moines register poll five points before the iowa caucuses. we finished with 6,000 vote
margin. so if you were measuring expectations, ted cruz is the one who exceeded expectations. we expect to do all right alisyn. as we saw in iowa the polls don't always get it right. we're bringing in our numbers expert to discuss. we can help guide your retirement savings. for over 75 years, investors have relied on our disciplined approach to find long term value. so wherever your retirement journey takes you, we can help you reach your goals. call a t. rowe price retirement specialist or your advisor ...to see how we can help make the most of your retirement savings. t. rowe price. invest with confidence. i'm here to get the lady of the house back on her feet. and give her the strength and energy to stay healthy. who's with me?! yay! the complete balanced nutrition of great tasting ensure.

rsm. audit, tax and consulting for the middle market. time for cnn money now. chief business correspondent kristine romans. >> right now stock futures are up a little bit but markets in europe and asia are down. you don't usually feel sorry for big oil companies, right? but oil's crash is causing some staggering losses. exxon mobile stock cut in half last year.
the good use. price of gas. >> so always a mix with this news from you romans. it can't just all be good. so presidential candidates are working their way through new hampshire. this is the new "most important" place. that is how an election works. this is the first primary now. look at the polls. in iowa, wrong. the des moines register wrong for the first time since 1988. how does it adjust? what is the reality? a man with answers to all the tricky questions there he is in the cold, mark preston. mr. preston, this attack of the polls in iowa, they didn't get it right, polls are useless. that is going too far. tell us why. >> first of all chris polls are a snapshot in time. and at that moment when that poll was taken that appeared to
be where the race was going but let's look at variables none of us could have taken into the account. we've never seen anything like the trump phenomena. he was having people show up at rallies but we still didn't know if they would show up. a plus a lot had come to see donald trump because he's donald trump. and ted cruz had built a coalition for months and months. i was talking to his iowa chairman who had been telling me back in june of last year. you have to watch us. the coles we're building. the ground game we're putting into the place and unbelievable. that is where the media lost out. we should have listened to those lessons and take those now from what happened in iowa and really try to apply them to what's going to happen here in new hampshire on tuesday. >> pollsters also say the numbers are suggestive, not predictive. if you look at the other race
the register got wrong, santorum winning in iowa. that was belabored process because some of the votes were immediately available to be tabulated. do you see similarities between the dynamics that made them both disruptive of the poll? >> listen, it is also a caucus, which is a unique way to try to declare somebody a winner. only a handful of other states will actually do caucuses. this being the first makes it so important. but it is hard to try and poll somebody and say will you come out on a monday evening for two hours and support somebody. it is not the same as showing up going in dragging the curtain behind you and hitting whoever you want to support. what a poll will not catch going into the last days of a campaign is momentum and drive. we heard wit marco rubio. you and i talked about it a lot last week. marco rubio came with a strong finish of third place. but at the end when we looked at the entrance poll, these are
surveys taken when people are walken in, chris. when we looked at those, more than 3 in 10 people decided on the day of. >> big number to make. so in new hampshire, marco rubio did not need to do well in iowa but he did very well. does he have do very well in new hampshire? and what does that mean? >> well chris, listen, this is a long game continuous. we look at marco rubio and say how long can we go? it comes down to fuel. what is the fuel? money. and where does the money come from? big donors. so marco rubio has to continue to convince people to continue to fuel his candidacy. he doesn't need to win in new hampshire. he doesn't need that in order to continue on. he has a primary on march 15th down in florida. that could be a big head to head. kasich needs to do well. jeb bush needs to do well here. chris christie. but that comes up to the big person we've all been talking about, donald trump, does he
need to win here? >> i don't think so. he came in second in iowa, spent very little of his money. he could come in first, second place here and continue on. long game for donald trump is chris he has the money. >> great analysis, mark preston. thank you very much and thanks to your wife for lending you her gloves. we're following a lot of news this morning, very big developments in new hampshire. tonight is the big town hal. let's get right to it. >> what kind of people do we >> what kind of people do we have running for office? -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com
they have invited these gay children to come into their home. it begins to effect the others in the church. >> this is "new day." >> good morning everyone. welcome to your "new day." wednesday february 3rd, 8:00 in the east. the republicans pouncing on new hampshire and each other. ted cruz and marco rubio looking to build momentum from the iowa caucuses with just six days until the new hampshire primary. my interview with senator rubio about his strong finish and fighting off the attacks as well as so much more will bring you in just minutes. >> donald trump back on the tra trail, not backing down. though conceding his debate boycott may have cost him iowa. he says what. i would do it again.

and continuing to bring up his canadian birth. >> he gets the nomination -- >> i hardly think it is news that donald trump is insulting me. >> reporter: cruz now preparing for battle in new hampshire. and even looking ahead to south carolina for hoping for a boost for the southern evangelical vote. while trump, banking on his popularity in new hampshire hopes to avoid the same mistakes he made in iowa. >> had i known i was going to be liked as much as i am in iowa. and people did like me. you will understand that. i would have maybe spent a little bit more and i would have been there a little bit more and maybe i would have won it. >> perplexed over marco rubio's highly publicized third place showing in iowa. >> we've been joking that in media world bronze is the new gold. >> the headline is winner of the night, marco rubio.
trump, humiliatehumiliated. >> rubio capitalizing on his momentum in the small new england state. asserting his electability. >> do you know who doesn't want to run against me? bernie sanders and hillary clinton. they attack many me more than anybody else in the race. they don't want to run against me but i can't wait to run against them. >> donald trump is loathe to admit mistakes but they told fox news they could have had a better ground game in iowa. the question here whether he loosens the purse strings and try to build up new hampshire with less than a week too go. >> let's turn to the former governor of new hampshire. governor sununu has not endorsed a candidate but his son works for john kasich's campaign. governor great to see you. >> how are you alisyn? >> i'm doing well. so do you agree it is now a
three-person race coming out of iowa? that it is cruz, trump and rubio? >> i think there are three persons sitting in the cat bird seat. but i don't think you can count out the three governors, christie, bush, kasich. they have been up here quite a bit. they have built a pretty good group of supporters up here. and frankly there is stale lot of volatility in the new hampshire voter. i was out and about yesterday at the supermarket, at the post office and at the coffee shop. and it's interesting. voters are talking about moving their vote on a strategic basis. they are trying to figure out how to make sure republicans win. and some of them actually were telling me they might vote for their second or third choice in order to get somebody with some momentum against trump. >> that is interesting. but aren't you describing marco rubio? they call it the marco momentum
and he's making the electability argument. is that what you are hearing from voters? >> a lot of them are not giving me specifics as to where they are going but certainly that is a lot of that kind of talk really must be pointed in that direction, of course. >> it sounds also as though his rivals think that he's the one to beat. for instance, jeb bush just yesterday called him a back bencher. chris christie called marco rubio the boy in the bubble. they seem to be training their sights on rubio. what do you think of that strategy? >> well they have been doing that even more iowa, which i always thought was a very poor strategy. i thought the force -- traditional candidates i call them. christie, kasich, bush and rubio, i thought they ought to be standing toe to toe in their battling, if you will, against trump and cruz. i don't know why they are trying to fight over a small piece of pie rather than going after the
big piece of pie that trump originally was holding. >> some of the latest polls i've seen show that as many as 41% of new hampshire voters are undecided. six days out. they are still kicking the tires as new hampshire voters are so want to do. >> it is probably higher than that alisyn. i think it is close to half. and it is not that they are undecided. it is that they are trying to, as i said earlier, be strategic with the vote they cast. a lot of them may have ranked who they like first second and third but new hampshire voters are smart enough to understand that the state has a pretty significant responsibility. and they want to do what is best for the country in the long run. and they really are concerned as to who is going to be commander in chief and who is going to be really the nominee of the party to go and beat hillary clinton. >> given that they are still
deciding, do you think that new hampshire could hold a surprise? all of the poles have suggested that donald trump will win decisively. but do you think kasich or somebody the pundit haven't yet considered could do something surprising this. >> yeah i think trump has to win wig here. if he has another loser night like he did in iowa contrary to what he's trying to tell people, his aura is going to be damaged significantly. i pointed out yesterday that everyone thought that it was beginning to believe trump's line that everything he touches turns to gold. but if you go into his history he has a whole series of failures even beyond the four major bankruptcies. and that that happens again they are going start paying attention to failures like trump airline and trump morch and so on. >> it is hard to see how his second place finish can be a failure. he did finish in second place. he's been at the top of the
polls for months now. in fact donald trump himself talked about why -- he's confused about why he's not getting more attention today when marco rubio who finished in third place seems to be getting out of the limelight. listen to donald trump talking about his frustration. >> he comes in third. i come in second. trump, no good. rubio, unbelievable night. unbelievable victory. the headline is winner of the night, marco rubio. trump, humiliated. how come the person that comes in third on many of the networks is being covered like it is one of the great victories in the history of politics in this country. >> yeah. how come? governor, doesn't he have a fair point? >> he's also saying well he misjudged. he should not have stepped out
of the debate. also saying she should have spent more time in iowa and more money and admitting his judgment was bad and that is the fundamental problem with donald trump. his judgment is terrible. and so i think people are beginning to understand that. he rationalizes his defeat as not being significant. but donald trump himself as said that coming in second is being a loser. >> just to be clear in terms of skipping the debate, what he's saying is that he would do it all over again. yes it may have hurt him in iowa but he's saying he's proud that he raised $6 million for vets. that sounds like a good argument. >> yeah. alisyn he's saying my judgment was bad. i should not have skipped the debate. and oh by the way, i'm dumb enough that i would do that bad thing again. >> that is not what he's saying governor. he's saying that he supports vets. that is how he's spinning. >> that is his excuse for having done a dumb thing.
>> governor, are you predicting that donald trump will not win new hampshire? >> no i didn't say that. i said he has to win new hampshire in order to continue to be a viable candidate. >> you know new hampshire better than anyone. what do you think voters want to hear in the next six days that will help tip the scales for them? >> traditionally what they would be doing is sorting out on the basis of positions amongst the candidates. this seems to be a year where style has a little bit more significance. but as i said earlier i think they are also adding a third component into here. they are trying to be strategic with their vote to give the party the best nominee in the long run to defeat hillary clinton. and so i think a number of them -- not all of them but a number of them may actually vote for their second or third choice if they think that is a good way of getting a nominee that can beat hillary clinton. stra teejry at work in new
hampshire. governor, thanks so much and we'll look forward to seeing you in new hampshire on monday. >> so enjoy your conversations alis alisyn. the pair gearing up to make final pitch to voters tonight on cnn's town hall. joe johns is live in manchester with the dems race. joe. >> michaela it is all about expectations right now. bernie sanders has been leading in the polls for months. he will be seeking to expand on what essentially is a home field advantage while hillary clinton will be trying to close the gap to appear competitive in a state where the polls appear to be working against her. >> i feel really great being back in new hampshire after winning in iowa and having a chance to come here -- >> riding high on the narrowest victory in iowa caucus history,
hillary clinton taking the showed p over votes to new hampshire. >> we fought secretary clinton to a virtual tie. and i don't even know yet. we have not even seen all of the breakdowns of the election results. >> bernie sanders feeling good about his odds in the granite state. his double digit lead fuelling the campaign's confidence. >> if we can win here in new hampshire -- all right. let me rephrase it. when we win here in iowa -- >> while clinton won the new hampshire primary in 2008 t state has often supported neighboring politiciapolitician possibly giving bernie sanders an edge. after nearly beating hillary clinton in iowa the self proclaimed democratic socialist says he raised a staggering sum. milli
3 million online in 24 hours. secretary clinton vying for the chance to take back some of that support. >> i'm going to have some work to do to reach out to young voters and i intend to do that. >> is it stage is set for both candidates to make their final case before the new hampshire primaries. facing tough questions from voters at tonight's cnn town hall in dairy. >> i'm looking forward to every opportunity. because i know people here have a choice. >> reporter: hillary clinton has three campaign events scheduled today. bernie sanders has a news conference along with a rally. all of o that before the cnn town hall. so they are certainly going to be warmed up by the time they get in front of the cameras at 9:00 p.m. eastern michaela. >> indeed with a little momentum. be sure to tune in tonight. clinton and sanders answered questions directly from voters. the presidential town hall in
new hampshire. >> we have a troubling development in the fight to slow down the zika virus break. cdc confirming a patient in dallas contracted the virus through sexual transmission. this is the first known case of zika being transmitted on u.s. soil. federal health issues now urging the use of condoms to battle the virus and that red cross is asking anyone who visits countries where zika is active to wait 28 days before donating blood. >> capitol hill today. the house oversight committee will hear firsthand from local lawmakers and environmental officials about the lead contamination poisoning flints water supply. >> the iowa caucuses making a great punch line for late night comics from donald trump to why the results for bernie sanders may have been twisted. take a look.
>> bernie sanders lost the iowa caucus by .03%. yeah. in other words bernie would have won if six stoners would have managed to get off the coach. the six individual guys were like. oh, is that tonight? >> trump came in second. with 24%. but this future president billionaire donald trump, he is a winner. and there is no way he would just humbly accept second place. donald, come out with guns blazing. >> we finished second. and i want to tell you something. i'm just honored. i'm really honored. >> who are you? and what have you done with donald trump's body? >> funny. that's great. conan o'brien also does a mean impersonation of a stoner. >> yeah he does. i wonder if he -- no.

fundamental changes in the way politics and economics is done in america. >> well that was bernie sanders in new hampshire after an extremely close race in iowa in the caucuses. so who has the most momentum heading into the new hampshire? joining us now is our cnn political commentators. great to have both of you. >> what a match up. >> good morning. >> very fiery match up i predict. sal sally. so hillary clinton won in iowa, and bernie sanders is leading in the polls who has the most momentum? >> first of all bernie has no momentum going into new hampshire question. i lean bernie. i like him. he's already doing well in the polls there. that said i really believe it is important to understand bernie's campaign was never about winning. it was about changing the
democratic party. making hillary a better more aggressive accountable -- >> not what he says. >> and the winning is now possible. it is the icing on the cake. be the expectations were already so low for him to be doing this well that the momentum is steam rolling. people loved him before they thought he could win. now he's got even more momentum. >> what do you think pall? terms of the pragmatism of sanders as the viable candidate taking the nomination? what do you see at the potential for that path and the limitations of that path? >> first off i agree with what sal said. what bernie has done had been remarkable. he has come from nowhere. enters new hampshire with with a huge head of steam. he was 23 points ahead before his razor thin loss in iowa. now he's raised $28 million. he's definitely the betting favorite in new hampshire. still i think a lot of democrats are gaining to wait to look at
nevada and south carolina. . and i love many i fellow white people. but the democratic party is really diverse. and this is where hillary clinton going into new york the only way to win is put together multi ethnic and political coalition and that's a not bernie's experience in vermont. no knock on bernie. but -- >> i heard paul say some of his closest friends are white. >> -- how you feel about young people because young people sally are turning out for bernie. the entrance polls in iowa were fascinating. e gets 84% of the people aged 17-29. hillary clinton gets in terms of age 65 and older, she gets 69%
of those. not that there is anything wrong with old people. >> he also got a huge slice of first time caucusers which shows energy and enthusiasm. >> and even she is acknowledging he has that advantage. listen to this. >> i'm going to have work to do to reach out to young voters, maybe first time voters who have to make a tough decision as they evaluate who should be our president, our commander in chief. and i intend to do that. >> she's going to do work do that. >> to paul ice point. i like young people. --. the future of the democratic party and american politics is actually in the coalition of progressive white people especially progressive young white folks and voters of color who don't make up a majority just in the democratic party but of the nation. and i think south carolina is the most important state. the most demographically
meaningful and a state where yes clinton historically has a lead but she's not necessarily going to hold on to that lead. the larger point is how refreshing to see democratic candidates not taking the block foot for granted in this year of black lives matters. this it is this is the kind of conversation democrats should be having. >> -- why bernie sanders doesn't do as well among minorities. he pointed out himself and the numbers bear it out he did better in iowa. again not a great state to test this out. 90-plus% white. but the numbers are the numbers. those who were there and available for the caucus, it was closer than people expected. but what is the limitation? he's talking about income inequality which is very socioeconomically sensitive, and not yet resonating with that portion of the electorate? >> this is his challenge. and his campaign very much seems to want to emulate then senator
obama's campaign and i don't blame them. even when he won iowa, carrying the white liberals, his capacity for obama was enormous. it was spectacular. and that is what happened. and he put that coalition together. bernie's history is more limited and -- >> i don't understand that point. that is the point i need you to help me understand. his political history is limited. what does that mean. >> >> brak obama has a second act. he had lots of other things to campaign on. so far bernie, god bless him. but but he talks about income inequality and almost nothing else. >> shouldn't that be enough? >> here is the interesting thing about bernie. he's not historically the greatest candidate. he didn't set out to be a greatest candidate. he set out to be a messenger for a movement. and he's getting better as the
candidate and his talk on race and analysis on race is an example. he's indicate of f thread in the democratic party separating economic justice and racial justice and saying these are separate. and he got challenged on that early on and to his credit he got better he's learning. i don't see clinton making the same corrections and being a learning candidate with young voters, black voters. he's trying and she's not. >> what is the correction? he's offering certainly from the critics perspective, free everything. young people like the idea of free everything. a lot of people like the idea of free everything. >> you sound like a critic there cuomo. >> well you got to ask it. if that is the criticism. and it is flee everything and he's going to raise the tax rate to pay it, that would resonate with younger people maybe who
aren't as a akuss md to the -- >> i think that is an over simplification. he's talking about the system. economic and political. more broadly that has favored certain people over others. that is his fundamental message. and initially only hung that on economic inequality and injustice. and no one is going to say we have a economic system and a political system that works for working people. then the challenge was bring in race to that conversation and say we also have a political system and economic system that tends to favor white elites over working class white folks and people after color across the board. >> he says it is rigged -- >> -- hard work paying off in america. >> how you functionally find the solution to it. that's why nancy pelosi and a
lot of -- they like it. and to both of you. thank you very much. appreciate it. we'll see this play out in real time tonight. why? oh, because we have a treat for you. clinton and sanders answering questions that go directly to this from the people who matter most, the voters of new hampshire. presidential town hall moderated by anderson cooper, 9:00 p.m. eastern only on cnn. now the other side of the ball just as important. the gop race alisyn sat down with republican presidential candidate marco rubio, the man of the hour, the owner of the phrase marco meantem. what did iowa mean for him? what is he going to do with immigration? how will he be better than donald trump? i've smoked a lot

marco rubio under attack from republican rivals after his strong showing in iowa. i had the chance to speak to senator rubio hours after he touched down in new hampshire about what's next. >> thanks so much for sitting down with us. have you had any sleep. >> little bit. just enough. >> at what point did you realize iowa was going to go very differently. >> we felt that way moving in. over the last ten days we were there working we felt really good about people deciding late
deciding our way. we were always confident about our plan and obviously we had a large turnout. the caucus centers they were putting out double the number of chairs they had ever put out before. so that was impressive and tells you how engaged and interested people are in this election and i'm glad they are. this is the most important election in generation. >> what was happening as you were watching the returns come in. >> i went to four separate caucus sites and spoke. to by the time i got to hotel we so you would see the numbers trending. and as you look back we got more votes than the win ores of the last three iowa caucuses. it was a huge turnout. i think team was fantastic and phenomenal and gave us great momentum here in new hampshire. >> now here in new hampshire you wake up in a different state, there are different voters when you look around. >> well i went to sleep at the different state.
we arrived at 1:30 and well we spend a lot of time here as well and we have a great team here too and we feel really good about it. and i give us the best chance to nominate a real conservative who can unite the party, grow the party, take our message to people that haven't voted for us in the past and ultimately defeat hillary clinton or bernie sanders. the democrats know this. >> new hampshire doesn't have the evangelical vote that iowa does. there are different values here. do you change anything about what -- >> i've always said the campaign we launched in april last year and message we launched will be the message i have in november this year. i'm not running two separate campaigns or eight separate campaigns. i believe america's greatest days are within our reach. i have clear policies the most detail of anybody running finish president.
either side. >> your rivals have been talking about you. what's your response? >> well i think when people attack you usually they don't attack someone who isn't doing well. you usually only get attacked in politics if you present a threat to someone. and jeb's comment is interesting. he endorsed me. he openly told people i should be the vice president in 2012. the only thing changed is now we're both running. sometimes people don't react well to adverse so they are saying some things they will probably later on regret. but that is not going change my campaign. if there are policy differences we'll discuss those but ultimately i'm running to unify the party and ensure our next president is nothing like the one we have now.
>> as, you know, immigration has become a big issue in this election. you and all of your rivals want to secure
the border. if you become president what do you do next? >> after securing the border? >> first not just secure the border. people have to -- i do not believe having worked on this issue now for a long time including just personally coming from the background i come from that the american people are going to support anything on immigration until they believe firstly illegal immigration is truly under control. only after that is in place and that is work category we go to the american people and see what they are willing to support. i think they will be willing to support something very reasonable. i don't think the american people expect us to round up and deport 12 million people. if you are a criminal you won't be able to say no matter what. they should be deported now, criminals. and you know what? we've outlined an idea. maybe the american people will
support it but the idea of allowing people who have been here a long time to background check. and paying taxes they get a work permit and that is all they will have at least for a decade but we'll see what the american people are willing to support. i'm not going to ram it down anyone's throat and we're not going to do it through unconstitutional executive orders the way this president has now. >> -- >> i've gotten interested in electronic dance music. i just like it because the lyrics are clean so i can listen to it in front of my kids and not worry about it. i used to be a much bigger hip hop fan but the lyrics are harder to listen to when you have 10
year olds in the car. >> -- were they robbed of an oscar nomination. >> i haven't seen the movie so i can't tell you. but what i is really amazing is ice cube's son looks just likely. and easy e because he passed away i herd eminem is going to
fill his role in the reunion. i'm interested to see how that plays out. >> are the oscars too white? >> oh i don't know. does that mean? the rap is there aren't enough people of color who have been nominated in movies. >> well hollywood has bigger problems than that but i don't, in terms of the oscars. i guess you are talking about the -- yeah i haven't followed that very closely. it is interesting i think the bigger problem i have with hollywood is the values they are trying to ram down our throat in this country and how hard it's been on parents like me and my wife to raise children with the values we want to instill in them as opposed to tth values hollywood wants to ram down people's throats and one of the things i just talked about with the lyrics as an example. that is something i'm concerned about. i haven't followed the whole oscars thing. >> thanks if your time. >> speaking of his fasm, they were right behind him in the
booth eating lunch right behind him. they were so well behaved. they had to be so patient as he worked the room. >> running for president. >> absolutely. >> that should count with kids that age, if they are behaving in a situation like that, that is a plus. >> we're going to take a short break. we'll be right back. let's celebrate these moments... this woman... this cancer patient... christine... living her life... loving her family. moments made possible in part by the breakthrough science of advanced genomic testing. after christine exhausted the standard treatment options for her disease, doctors working with the center for advanced individual medicine at cancer treatment centers of america suggested advanced genomic testing. the test results revealed a finding that led to the use of a targeted therapy that was not considered for christine before. now, they're helping fight her cancer on another, deeper level... the genetic level. this is precision cancer treatment, an approach to care that may help patients like christine enjoy the things that matter most in

right to mark preston live in manchester. what is the word? >> reporter: well chris we have just learned, cnn has just learned that kentucky senator rand paul will suspend his efforts for presidency. he's decided to run for senate again in kentucky. why this is significant is here in new hampshire there is a big contingent of libertarian voters. these are folks who are supportive of rand paul. now as we head into tuesday where will those voters go? we now know all the other candidates will be making a play for them. the likes of ted cruz and certainly donald trump trying to get that support. rand paul chris again has decided to suspend his campaign. he'll join mike huckabee as the second republican to step out of put on your analyst hat. why now? when as you suggest there was
some there for paul. why now and any nod at all to what he night do with his support base there for other candidates? >> i got to tell you i was with rand paul about a year and a half ago up in new hampshire talking to operatives at that time they were saying he could chom in second if not place first in the new hampshire primary. but just like all the other candidates, when donald trump got into the race there was a lot of oxygen sucked out of it. rand paul got into that vacuum. where he'll go, we do not know. he doesn't have the same kind of foreign policy directive or ideas as the likes of marco rubio or his colleagues. it is unclear where he's go but rand paul a relatively young man, certainly has a future in politics. for him to run again for the senate he's very like to win that. that is where he can stake his
ground and it really comes down to money. we talked about that. money needs to fuel the campaigns. i think paul decided it was better to focus on kentucky, to focus on reelection and a second term. >> big headline from cnn's mark preston. rand paul suspending his election. why right now in new hampshire? we'll get more as the day progresses and the paul campaign comes out with more information. our thanks to mark preston. let's get reaction right now from a another important voice in the election, franklin graham. president and ceo of smarten's purse samaritan's purse. he's running the decision america tour and joins us now. what is your reaction to rand paul stepping out? >> i think rand paul is a good man. and he had some good ideas but, you know, there is a crowded field out there and there are going to be others dropping out in the next few days and weeks. >> who do you think should be the next president of the united
states? >> you know, i'm staying out of that chris. i'm going from state to state holding prayer rallies on the capitol steps of the state asking people to join me to pray for this nation and our leaders. our country is in trouble and right now i have zero hope in the democratic party and zero hope in the republican party. the only hope for this nation is god. and if we'll turn our attention back to god i believe god will help us fix the problems that we face. but chris we have no individual out there that can turn this thing around. only god can do it. >> and the question is if you believe in the divine hand, it is who gets inspired most by it and who resonates most with the voters because of it. ted cruz seems to be saying he deserves that mantle after iowa? a big evangelical presence in the state. do you agree? >> well i'm not going to -- again i'm not supporting any individual candidate. >> i'm going to push you rev.
>> you can push me all you want chris but i'm not going to answer that question. there are some good guys out there that have some great ideas for this country. but those good ideas aren't going to go anywhere without the hand of all mighty good. and i believe god has blessed this nation, his hand has opinion on this nation but we've taken got out of our country. out of politics. outs of schools. out of the education system and we are a broken nation and it is not going to get fixed by politics. it is only going to be fixed i believe if the american people turn from their sin and put their faith in trust in all migra migratety god. we're going to get ahead of the primaries to encourage christians to pray and i want to encourage the evangelicals to get out and vote. their voice needs to be heard.
i'm trying to get them out and get them to vote. and according to cnn the largest group of evangelicals voted in the new hampshire in the last two elections. >> the question to vote on what basis? is it enough to just vote for the person who seems to talk about their faith the most? christian faith specifically? or like your own organization? isn't what they actually do? is it enough just to believe in god or how you live that belief that you want evangelicals to look at? >> i appreciate you asking that question, chris. that is a great question. there are a lot of people who talk about their faith. but you have to live it. and i'm wanting every voter to examine the person they are going to vote for and how that person lives their faith. but do they stand for biblical principles? i believe the bible is the word of god from cover to governor
and every word of it is true and i hope and pray -- >> so reverend if candidate says look, i have my own christian beliefs but this is a secular society under our constitution and let's look at same-sex marriage. the supreme court has said what the law of the land is, respecting the equal protection of same-sex couples to get married. and i must support the law. would i get your vote? >> well first of all, chris, you talk about us being a secular government secular site. that's only taken place in the last few years. our nation was founded on biblical principles. our founding fathers recognize god. all you have to do is go through washington -- >> understood reverend. we know that the christian faith is not the rule for all. that is the point. under the constitution you don't see god mentioned until the signature page. that is why i'm asking you about respecting the law of the land
even if it fight yours religious belief. >> well first of all i respect the law of the land that has been approved of by the constitution and by the correct process. and i don't think the judges and washington can just make law. that is not what they do but they have done as it relates to same-sex manch. in almost every case where same-sex marriage was put to a vote here in north carolina and other places and voted down by the people and it was individualed that overturned the will of the people. i noo a nationwide referendum and let's see what if people say. >> the constitution is often construed to protect the minority even when in the face of majority. appreciate it. there is a lot of coverage going on with our big town hall debate tonight in new hampshire. newsroom with carol costello right after the break.
