tv   Anderson Cooper 360  CNN  February 8, 2016 5:00pm-6:01pm PST

5:00 pm
trouble handling the locked door handles in china. on "the view," the hosts created a republican snafu. they made their entrance. but when it comes to hailing these chiefs, better hail them louder. jeanne moos, cnn, new york. thanks for joining us live from new hampshire tonight. ac "360" starts now. >> good evening. thanks for joining us. with voting in new hampshire now just four hours away, begins that early in some places, forget what anyone else says about the calm before the storm. out on the trail today, it looked more like the storm before the storm. every major contender blanketing the state evens as a real storm blanketed the state. it's expected to continue tomorrow with who knows what kind of impact on voter turnout. jeb bush and hillary clinton, secretary clinton appearing tonight with daughter chelsea
5:01 pm
and former president bill clinton. there's that and also marco rubio coming off a bruising debate over the weekend. the chris christie bragging about being the one who did much of the bruising. ted cruz managing expectations, the rumblings of a clinton campaign shake-up. breaking news as well, former new york mayor bloomberg talking about running and donald trump returning to full combat tweeting. on top of that, the final tracking of cnn polls, that is out, too. we'll have it out in the next two hours, tonight. we begin, though, with donald trump firing this rocket at jeb bush. "jeb bush has zero communication skills so spent a fortune of special interest money on a super bowl ad. he is a weak candidate." tonight at the trump rally in
5:02 pm
manchester, new hampshire, does trump have anything else to say about bush tonight? >> reporter: not so far, anderson. you know, in addition to the snow here in new hampshire, there's been a blizzard of put-downs between donald trump and jeb bush today. donald trump described this rally as the final love fest before the voting begins here in new hampshire. but his campaign is confident about what we're going to see tomorrow night. trump campaign manager corey lewandowski told me that they see a big difference between iowa and new hampshire. they believe iowa was more about explaining this confusing caucus process to iowans. the trump family was speaking a few moments ago. this approach, anderson, admittedly did not work in iowa but inside the trump campaign they are looking at the polls and feeling much better about thir. they think the approach will work here. >> what is his overall message or tone before the votes are
5:03 pm
cast? is he going after anybody by name or is he going bigger? >> reporter: well, anderson, i think donald trump just summed up his closing argument a few moments ago. he said, yes, we are angry. this is about a movement that is driven by voter anger and he's basically saying what he's argued all along. he's hitting the same lines that his audience seemed to expect and he can almost recite it himself. scrap obamacare and the iran nuclear deal. the trump doesn't do their own internal polling, they say, and that's why it appears that donald trump doesn't mind going after jeb bush even though trump considers bush way down in the polls. and anderson, i can tell you that personal vendetta does not alienate a lot of republicans. they say they've seen enough of the bushes despite the fact that they have led the presidency.
5:04 pm
>> athena jones is in portsmouth, new hampshire. >> reporter: anderson, his closing argument is a lot like the argument he's made all along but it's getting a stronger reception than he has. we're seeing a more condition if i dent bush. his argument is that he has a proven executive record and the experience to lead on day one and the temperament, the serious, steady hand to be able to lead this country, unlike some of his competitors, he's been tested through his eight years as governor. he describes donald trump as an egotist who does not have a servant's heart and says that marco rubio is a gifted senator but a good speech does not a presidency make. so that's part of the argument we've heard him make tonight before this crowd here in portsmouth. >> athena jones, thanks. marco rubio took a beating
5:05 pm
for using the same catch phrase again and again and again. governor christie commenting, "heavyweight mike tyson, everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face." any damage from that punch has yet to show up in our polling. cnn's raju is reporting. >> reporter: his closing pitch is around one word. electability. he's been making that pitch since he came here to new hampshire. he says he's the one candidate with the conservative wing of the party and moderate wing of the party and take that message to voter who is don't traditional vote for republicans in addition to 44-year-old republican trying to make a generational campaign. the electability argument took a bit of a hit because of his debate performance on saturday. his rivals seizing on that
5:06 pm
saying that's the kind of thing that democrats will jump on when we get into a general election if marco rubio became the general nominee. it's very critical for marco rubio to end up ahead of the governors who are running, the jeb bush, john kasich, chris christie. if he emerges in front of them, he could more easily make the argument that he's that unity candidate, the party should unite behind him. if he ends up behind them come tuesday, this race could go on for a long time because those candidates will be making the same case to the republican party. anderson? >> manu raju, thank you. our final tracking poll before the voting begins has just come out. joining us to break it down is republicans and democrats by the numbers. our chief national correspondent john king. so, clearly donald trump still in the lead, right? more good news for him. >> more good news in the final tracking poll, anderson. the question is going to be, much as we had in iowa, does donald trump underperform or overperform his polls. trump in our final tracking poll
5:07 pm
is at 31%. that's up three. tracking polls, some people say they are not so reliable. you want to look at the trend line. trump is at 31% and 17% for rubio and ted cruz at 14 and kasich at 10 and bush at 7. the trend for donald trump is good. he's up three points over the past four days. the rubio campaign putting out our poll numbers today, distributing them to donors saying it's flat lined. that was encouraging news for the rubio campaign. senator cruz up a point. essentially flat at 14%, running third after winning iowa. the cruz campaign would be thrilled to come in third in new hampshire. what does new hampshire do if trump performs anywhere close to his poll numbers, he will get a win tomorrow night and then the question is how is the
5:08 pm
establishment rubio, kasich, christie, bush, how does that sort itself out as we head to the south. >> before we move on to the democrats, in terms of -- that's done over the 4th to the 8th. a lot of that was done before the debate on saturday night, right? >> that's right. you're tracking consistently. this goes back to friday night and then saturday night and then, of course, the last couple of nights. so some of this is from before the debate and new hampshire is notorious for breaking late. but, you know, again, there's nothing in our data to suggest the debate harmed marco rubio but, you know, the data that counts comes tomorrow. >> only half of republicans say they are definitely decided, anderson. >> only half? >> only half. 46% say they have definitely decided. 24% say they are leaning towards somebody and the rest say they are still shopping. >> wow. >> we could have interesting surprises tomorrow. democratic voters are much more settled in their choice. if you look at those numbers, it's a blowout for bernie sanders in the polling. that doesn't mean it will happen on election day.
5:09 pm
but 61% to 35%. the trend line is encouraging for secretary clinton. she's up four points over the last four days but within the clinton campaign, there are other tracking polls that show it tighter than this. they fully expect to lose tomorrow night. their goal -- maybe this is a spin but their goal is to keep it in single digits. >> john, stay right there. we'll pick it up along with our panel after the quick break. coming up next, more on the rubio's rough debate night and the boost he got tonight from rush limbaugh. also, the impact of former mayor mike bloomberg getting in the race. that got a lot of people talking. before we go, let's listen to a bit of donald trump speaking in manchester. >> norway, sweden, denmark, china and plenty of others. then you have third world countries and number 30 is the united states. so we're 30 in the world in education. and we're number one per pupil in course by far. number two isn't even close. so that's the way it is.

live picture of manchester. there you get a picture of the snow. we don't know how that will affect votes in new hampshire tomorrow, less than four hours to go before voters in the nation's first primary state begin casting ballots. we're talking about all the factors, big and small, that could sway the outcome tomorrow in new hampshire. one, which is et going plenty of buzz, as you've been seeing,
5:14 pm
marco rubio's performance at the debate and manu raju reported it did not seem to affect the polling. rush limbaugh came to his defense. take a listen to what limbaugh said. >> this is what i was talking about earlier when i say, i think some of these professional media analysts, god bless them and they do hard work and many of them, they are fine people, but i don't know that they have the ability to see these debates the way people watching the debates on tv see them. meaning, i don't know how big a faux pas this was for rubio. clearly it was not a positive. clearly it was not his best. but i don't think it ruined his chances and wiped him out like some in the media opine. >> well, before we go to the professional opiners to my left, let's bring in our chief
5:15 pm
political analyst, glower gentleman borger, john king, nia malik sa henderson and david axelrod and then jeffrey lord and jeffrey begala. and last in this intro, but often first in our hearts -- thank you to you all. david, how bad was that debate for rubio and is limbaugh right that people watching at home don't see it as the -- >> i think it was bad. i think it was bad for two reasons. one is the thing you don't want is to make a gaffe or a mistake that underscores a narrative, a negative narrative about yourself and there was this narrative that marco rubio was a good speech with not much behind it. >> right. >> and chris christie just brutally exposed him in that debate. the second is, as manu said, he's making the case about electability and all of a sudden
5:16 pm
he didn't look all that formidable and it would give people who are concerned about electability some pause and maybe reason to look at some of the other candidates. so i don't think it was a great night. >> i mean, so many republican voters are undecided. we have no idea what is going to happen tomorrow. >> we don't. and i was talking to people and a bunch of republican campaigns today have been outdoor knocking and they are saying, we've been knocking on all of these doors and people that actually are saying, i'll decide the minute i get inside the booth. >> all over new hampshire, republicans are going to be up all night. >> right. >> thinking about their choices. >> and so it's anywhere between, what, 35 and 40% undecided, basically, maybe more. so i think it is difficult. but to the point about marco rubio, i agree with rush him bau. we really don't know. but i think it wasn't so much what rubio said, which was, by the way, barack obama knows exactly what he's doing, because
5:17 pm
that has been the thesis of his entire campaign. i think it's the way he said it, which was robotic, over and over again and when christie -- to use christie's face, punched him in the face, he didn't know how to respond to that. and i think that's what people saw and could respond to. >> but i think it's good for rubio that he has rush limbaugh out there sort of blocking and tackling in front of that really big audience that rubio is going to need if he's going to win this thing and rush limbaugh has done that before, defended marco rubio. i think they have been really tearing into him, laura ingraham, for instance, and rich lowery. >> not so much did it knock him down but did it stop him? he was clearly moving up. did it flat line after that and stay at 17 which would be in second place? but he was going up.
5:18 pm
>> and all of that talk about momentum after iowa. >> if trump underperforms again and falls into the 20s, could rubio get there, get to trump or close to trump, one or two behind trump, that would have changed the conversation late tuesday night and wednesday morning. now it looks like -- and again, let people vote tomorrow and this late -- new hampshire is notorious for late breaking. it looks like there's going to be a cluster of the mainstream establishment candidates and new hampshire will give us the alternative to trump and cruz, probably have a ways to go. >> there's a lot more tickets out of new hampshire now than there was. >> i think for the mainstreamers, let's say rubio stays second or third. the one who comes after him or right with him is going to be able to raise money. the other ones, if christie falls or stays down where he is, he's not going to raise any money. if bush comes below christie and kasich -- >> one of the winners, if that's the case and you have a cluster and more people moving on and
5:19 pm
the circus moves on to south carolina, it's donald trump. because i think the larger the field, the better his 35% stands up. the field shrinks, he's got problems. >> if you look at polling, though, you see maybe what christie did was the sacrifice fly and that the people who could benefit from it is kasich and jeb bush. >> i hear some grumbling. jeff, how confident are you in your candidate, donald trump? >> i'm confident. well, he's got corey lewandowski who is from new hampshire and has been through this a thousand times. in terms of marco rubio, i would say it's always good to have rush limbaugh blocking and tackling for you. maybe he overmessaged a little bit. >> right. >> but the fact of what he was saying is something that rush limbaugh has been talking about for years. >> right. >> so to get to the point of what the audience hears, what gloria was talking about and
5:20 pm
rush was talking about, they are hearing this. this makes sense to them. so i'm not sure that that is as much of a negative as they think. >> it wasn't the substance of rubio's talking point. it was the presentation of it. >> right. >> listen, he's had great debate performances before. it didn't help him in the polls. it's not clear a bad performance will hurt him but in between campaigning really hard in new hampshire, he has to get rid of that before the next debate because if it happens again, it will hurt. >> when you look into the money that jeb bush has put into -- the money that's been raised for jeb bush, it is extraordinary how poorly he is doing. do you see him moving out of here? >> because of the money, yes. but do i see him moving to the nomination? no. money can sustain him to keep him winning but can't make him win. one thank we are learning is it's being determined in the free press, not the paid media. donald trump has probably said less in the paid media and he's
5:21 pm
going to win tomorrow, i think. marco rubio has done well in the free pes. we were all excited when he rode this surge to new hampshire. that's why this gaffe hurts -- probably not for tomorrow. it takes these things a few days to work through the system. tomorrow is not the last primary. it's the first. he's going to come back to those talking points. it is what he does and in the same way -- remember when rick perry couldn't count to three? he's a dope. because he is. and marco rubio is a talking point machine. he is. not all gaffes are equal. barack obama in may of '08 said i'm campaigning in all 50 states. it didn't hurt. nobody was worried that he was stupid. marco rubio kind of chokes. >> new hampshire papers were tough on marco rubio for not spending a lot of time in new hampshire whereas you look at kasich, he's had over 100 town halls and jeb bush has spent a lot of time and christie has been there a lot.
5:22 pm
>> i think marco rubio was smart to spend a lot of time in iowa. it helped him. it gave him a great boost in new hampshire. but, you know, paul and i don't have a dog in this fight which is why it makes it so fun to talk about this. i think rubio hurt himself. by the way, i don't think rush limbaugh's endorsement -- he didn't endorse but he said it wasn't as bad as people thought. we all watched it. >> he survived the walkout. >> pretty painful. >> first time i didn't really understand his point. the second time, exact same words, the third time, the exact same words. to me, the tragedy was, i think marco rubio lost but i don't think chris christie -- he did not win. >> no. >> so he did the beating up and it looks like he's not going to benefit from it. it will be kasich. >> you think it was a tragedy? i don't believe you think that. >> for chris christie it was a -- >> this narrative didn't just start with marco rubio's mistake
5:23 pm
during the debate in his robotic performance. it really started, i think, when rick santorum in endorsing him couldn't name a single thing that he had accomplished. so that got a lot of attention and then you add -- >> he couldn't give a speech without -- >> that's a longer -- >> that's the thing about presidential races. these are -- there's a nonlinear component to this. these are tests. they are serial tests and people look at you and they try and assess, can you stand up to the pressures of the presidency. and when you're on a stage and a guy dresses you down and you seem to wilt under that pressure, that is a very damaging thing, especially for a guy who is depicted as a calo youth. >> that's what the democrats want to call him. i go back to the 2008 analogy that barack obama then like marco rubio now is the best athlete on the field with potential. the question is, does he need a little more time in aa or aaa or
5:24 pm
is he ready for the major leagues. barack obama, i was going to name all 50 states. >> to his credit, when obama fell down, he got up. his team, when they got down, they got up. let's see what happens with rubio here. >> we've got to take a quick break. just ahead, inside the final stretch for the democrats, bernie sanders, hillary clinton hitting the trail hard today. you're looking at bill clinton warming up the crowd at a live event right now in hudson, new hampshire. the clinton camp sharpening their attacks on the front-runner. bernie sanders facing back lack for the comment of two clinton supporters. >> i'm very grateful to him. [ applause ] look, tonight my job is to introduce hillary. sometimes when i'm on a stage like this, i wish we weren't
5:25 pm
married. then i could say what i really think. this just got interesting. why pause to take a pill? or stop to find a bathroom? cialis for daily use is approved to treat both erectile dysfunction and the urinary symptoms of bph, like needing to go frequently, day or night. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions and medicines, and ask if your heart is healthy enough for sex do not take cialis if you take nitrates for chest pain, or adempas for pulmonary hypertension, as it may cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure. do not drink alcohol in excess.

5:29 pm
cnn tracking poll shows bernie sanders with a 26-point lead over hillary clinton on the eve of new hampshire's primary. you're looking at live pictures from a clinton rally in hudson. miss clinton getting assisted from her husband. her daughter chelsea just left the stage. all three have been stumping hard across new hampshire together and over the weekend they sharpened their attacks on bernie sanders. joe johns joins me tonight. what has clinton's message been in these final hours? >> reporter: you know, like them or hate them, anderson, i think you can say this is what we have come to expect from the clintons. when the polls are down, when they are pushed into a corner, they fight. and that's what we've seen over the last 24 hours or so. that's what we're seeing right now with bill clinton and chelsea clinton and hillary clinton. they have a whole cast of characters out here, the female senator, the female governor of new hampshire, ted danson, mary
5:30 pm
stein burr john, the hollywood actors. a long list of people who tried to close the gap between hillary clinton and bernie sanders, which sounds right now like a very tough job. from the perspective of the clinton camp, bernie sanders has used a lot of very sharp rhetoric and now they say they are responding to him and bill clinton has been leading the charge, anderson. >> there's been some reporting that there's internal discord between the clintons and their campaign. what are you learning? >> reporter: we're hearing a couple things. bill clinton behind me, i'm told, has been concerned about the campaign. and the question of whether there's enough creativity in it, the question of whether they are looking forward as opposed to looking backward. hillary clinton herself has said they are going to take a look and an accounting of the
5:31 pm
situation and why they were so close in iowa, for example, why she's behind here in new hampshire. but no big changes in the campaign. there are concerns from democrats about the fact that bernie sanders has been able to outfundraise them and they are concerned generally about the situation going forward. they are going to take a look at it but apparently no big changes in the campaign structure at least for now. >> joe, thank you very much. it's been a full day of campaigning for bernie sanders as well. he has a 26-point lead in the just released c independent n tracking poll. he's clearly not resting on those poll numbers. new hampshire voters, as we have known, wait until the last minute to make up their minds. in the last poll, 64% say they have made up their mind who will get their vote. brianna keilar is joining me now. what's he been talking about in this final push? >> reporter: we are waiting for him at his final event.
5:32 pm
the band has been killing time because it appears that sanders has been a little behind schedule. but he's pushing what he has connist sently pushing all along, income inequality, a rigged economic system that favors the wealthy and this is the university of new hampshire. so we also expect that he'll be talking about free public college, something that certainly is going to resonate with this crowd. it's interesting, anderson, sometimes you'll hear a sanders rally is likened to a fish concert. jonathan fishman was here performing with a folk band from vermont. >> so have they responded, either the candidate or campaign, to former president clinton's sharpening attacks on him over the weekend? >> reporter: yeah, they have. they are trying to sort of throw it back on to clinton. one said it was disappointing what he had said and really
5:33 pm
trying to say that it's basically desperation. they say the race has been changing here in new hampshire. it's changing in other places and so they say that this is the clinton campaign, that president clinton trying to distract from some of the issues. it is of note, bernie sanders was asked about these so-called trolling clinton supporters online saying mean things to them, sometimes sexist things to them. he did denounce that but, again, one of his top advisers saying that this focus that president clinton made is an attempt to distract. >> brianna, thank you. in 2008, hillary clinton pulled off an unexpected primary victory over candidate barack obama. but tonight the latest tracking poll shows sanders leading clinton among women by 11 points. what's more, his support among 18 to 34-year-old women is overwhelming. he leads clinton 87% to 9 among that age group. that is the generational group.
5:34 pm
that two high-profile supporters fell into over the weekend. here's cha mad din albright and glor gloria steinem had to say. >> just remember, there's a special place in hell for women who don't help each other. >> first of all, women get more radical as we get older. when you're young, you're thinking, you know, where are the boys? the boys are with bernie. >> miss stein next later apologized as both comments caused anger. here's gary tuchman. >> reporter: a college gymnasium with many young women, self-described progressive democrats. people hillary clinton wants and needs for her presidential bid. but these female millennials are
5:35 pm
not here for hillary clinton. entrance polls show democratic women under the age of 30 favored bernie sanders by an overwhelming margin. >> a lot of what i hear bernie sanders speaking about is for college kids, helping them out once they graduate. >> what we're talking about is free tuition at public colleges and universities. >> reporter: the free tuition proposal resonates for many young women. but those here have other reasons, too. >> just because somebody is a woman doesn't mean they are right for the job. i want to make sure they have the right qualifications and standards and morals. >> i just don't really trust in what she has to say. it's like i don't really believe in her. >> reporter: at this rally at daniel webster college and a later rally at a manchester theater, there are other reasons that young women want to see a female president are willing to wait for that. >> at the end, you have to vote
5:36 pm
for your interest and right now bernie gets my interest better than hillary does. >> reporter: the student dean of the college supports hillary clinton. >> it's just time. >> reporter: what do you say to the young women here who say it's not her time? >> that's confusing to me. i'm excited that they are involved in the process but it's very confusing to me and i don't understand what those issues are and how hillary hasn't been able to make that case to those women. >> reporter: but some of the young women hearsay she has made her case and it's probably not enough. >> i would love to see a woman in the white house. i don't know if hillary clinton is that candidate. i don't know if she is that person to break that barrier because of the different strings that come attached with hillary. >> reporter: the united states turns 240 years old this july 4th. and after two centuries and four decades of independence, not only has there never been a female president, there's never been a presidential nominee.
5:37 pm
history will one day be made but it's clear that many female democrats loyal to the party prefer it not be this year. >> gary joins us now. so in all of the young democratic women, the democrats you talked to today, did you talk with anyone who felt that a woman in the white house is not necessarily an important goal? >> reporter: no. everyone i talked it to, every young woman wants to see a female president. but today's 20-year-old voter has grown up in a different time and place than today's 50-year-old voter and those young voters i talked to, the young female voters think it will happen sooner rather than later and, therefore, they are more patient than the people i talked to today. if hillary clinton wins the democratic presidential nomination, these women are not republicans and will most likely be voting for hillary clinton anyway for the president of the united states. >> gary, thanks. we'll get the panel's take on this. also, breaking news, a possible new wild card in a race that has already rewritten the political playbooks.
5:38 pm
mayor michael bloomberg talks about jumping into the race. and bernie sanders is on the stage right now in durham. let's listen in as we go to break. >> and i believe that you understand that while the decisions that are made in washington today impact every american, they impact the younger generation even more. because you are going to have to live with those decisions for the next 60, 70, god willing, 80 years. seems like we've hit a road block.

and you're looking at two live events going on right now. bernie sanders in durham, new hampshire and hillary clinton in hudson, both making final pitches before voting begins now just over three hours in a couple places in new hampshire. one thing that could shake up that side of the race and the whole race in general is a possible new ecandidate, former mayor michael bloomberg. it's the first time he's confirmed the fact that he's eyeing a white house bid. he told "the new york times" last month that he was thinking about running as an independent.
5:43 pm
he's troubled by the lead that trump and sanders have in new hampshire. first of all, you have new reporting based on conversations about a possible shake-up or trouble in the clinton camp? >> well, i do. there are -- i was talking to a clinton source who said to me, look, what they are looking for in the clinton campaign is what this source called a more disciplined process, which they haven't had. and that they believe there's a couple mistakes the campaign has made, first of which is not taking bernie sanders more seriously this past summer because i was told, you know, it's hard -- his supporters now are so passionate that it's hard to change their minds and it's hard to change to fight passion with reason s. what i was told. and secondly, they believe that she's not connecting, obviously, her heart with the voters and they need to do something to fix that. you can't fire the candidate in these kinds of situations. so you have to fix the campaign.
5:44 pm
>> in the real tv news, they change the set and fire their producer. maybe the anchors is the problem. >> but you can't fire -- >> that's just for those watching -- >> this has suddenly turned into group therapy. >> my question is, i mean, at a certain point, is it the candidate or the campaign? >> look, there are some things that they can do better and they've acknowledged that. bernie sanders targeting people with digital messaging and ad campaigns. but part of this is the environment and the candidate. just ask jeb bush. it is hard if you are a brand to run in an environment where people want something new and different and the clintons are a brand. they are yesterday to a lot of people and i know bernie sanders is older and this makes almost no sense, but he's new and he's different and he's speaking to them. and one of the thing that hillary clinton does that she did a lot in 2008, i don't need to tour the oval office. i'm ready. nine times out of ten, that's a good message. this is the one where that's not
5:45 pm
what people are being looking for. >> no. i said last week that this experience message is troubling because by definition, when experience is your argument and you're talking about yourself, bill clinton says, we should be talking about the future but when hillary clinton gets asked by a young person why they should beef for her, she starts citing her life of achievement and persuade them based on her biography and it's all about her. bernie sanders is not talking all about himself in his speeches. and i think particularly with these younger people, that's made a difference. but the one thing that strikes me is, there is a kind of groundhog day quality that is going on right now. >> thank you. >> we could have said this was the set from 2008. >> look at this weekend. bill clinton lashing out in a kind of harsh way at bernie sanders last night, stories the day before the primary about a shake-up in the campaign. i don't see how this helps. the thing i don't understand is
5:46 pm
she is still a solid favorite to be the nominee. once you get past these two races, she's in pretty good shape. if i were around there, i would say, everybody chill, man. >> yeah. >> but how do you get bill clinton to chill? >> well, that's an issue. i don't know. paul begala knows. >> and they seem to go from 0 to 60 very quickly. i mean, they were laying off bernie sanders and then they attacked him and then they wanted to be more optimistic and then turned again to attacking bernie sanders and then they have the surrogates out here, whether it's gloria steinem or madeleine albright. >> set them to lecture 20-year-olds on what their responsibilities are to -- >> 20-year-olds love that. >> yes. >> i'm really curious to see how that matches up in the general election because i think hillary will still be the nominee. but, i mean, we're in the environment now where they get really angry if you criticize the way that she speaks. they are upset about internet
5:47 pm
trolls. they are telling young women to fall in line. essentially, respect your elders. we have gone through a republican primary where political correctness was rejected wholesale. people will be very excited to continue to campaign against that in the form of the hillary clinton campaign. >> it does seem weird to be complaining about internet trolls. >> one of the things that occurs here, if you're not a liberal when you're 20, you have no heart. if you're not a conservative by the time you're 40, you have no brain. you think back to the mccarthy campaign or arguably the gary hart campaign against walter mondale. young people in the democratic party, when they are young and liberal, they are really young and really liberal. i don't think this has to do with them being women. they have moved left and they look at hillary clinton as an earlier generation and looked at musky and said no thanks.
5:48 pm
>> breaking news, bernie sanders is not going to win by 30 points but he's going to win by double-digits, i believe. if you look at that and plus almost winning in iowa, the clinton campaign, if they are not thinking about reassessing particularly the message, that they ought to be because bernie is getting through and she isn't. i think where he's getting through is he's lifting the aspirations of these young people to say we can have free community college. we can have universal health care in this country. she comes along like the scold saying, lower your expectations. let's be pragmatic and practical. charge blow in "the new york times" had a great piece. the hillary theme is, i have half a dream. nobody wants to hear that. >> paul, you worked for a pro-clinton super pac. >> yeah. by the way, i'm for her anyway. i've known her for a long time and i love her. there's a certain element in this conversation, you can't win for losing.
5:49 pm
now she's attacking. she's too negative. well, now she's shaking up her step. she gave an interview where she said i'm not. everybody should just chill the heck out. she's going to lose tomorrow by 26 points, if our poll is accurate. she havery likely could be president. >> if i keep talking like this, i'm not going to get invited. >> you'll be my plus one. it's hard to -- >> she should chill. and bill should chill. >> she's running for president. it's not the time to chill. >> no. but sending him out as an attack dog is the wrong thing, the wrong message. >> well, what he is doing, as bill points out, senator sanders is raising people's aspiration. it's perfectly fine for somebody to hold him to those same standards. the thing that drove me crazy, his campaign -- i believe sanders knew nothing about that
5:50 pm
but they stole data. pretty scum me thing because the democratic party acted so ridiculously, he won that. he won money off of his own staffer's theft. okay. so i think it's -- >> never know how we need it. >> that's the kind of thing that young people who believe in idealism -- it's a fair thing to raise. he did not pay a political price for that fact. he's a very honorable guy. but somebody on his team did that. >> the last thing passionate, young voters want to hear is, be practical, dear. >> that's right. >> but why? it's who she is, gloria. why is she supposed to pretend she's a second coming of barack obama? she's pragmatic. >> i understand that. but i do think it accounts for some of her problems against bernie sanders and she says, look, he has all of these great ideas and she said about barack obama, he gives a great speech. he has all of these great ideas but he can't get anything done
5:51 pm
and his appeal to younger voters is, yes, we can. right? >> yes. he's not just pie in the sky. he's a whole floating bakery. you eat that, you're going to get fat. younger people may not like that. >> you mean canada can do it, sweden can do it, france it can do it and we can't do it? we're the greatest country on this earth. as we mentioned, snow is falling in new hampshire. could the storm impact voting? a lot more with our panelists. we'll be right back. discover card. i missed a payment. aw, shoot. shoot! this is bad. no! we're good! this is your first time missing a payment. and you've got the discover it card, so we won't hike up your apr for paying late. that's great! it is great!

5:55 pm
well, there's a slippery end to the campaign trail in new hampshire, literally, all due to mother nature. a winter storm dropping snow on the state right now. this is manchester and tiny towns will cast ballots in about three hours from now, leading some to wonder if this weather could keep voters away from the polls tomorrow. meteorologist jennifer gray is tracking the storm. what's it going to be like tomorrow? >> this is a big one. it dumped a lot of snow. not necessarily in the new hampshire. they didn't get the highest totals but places like the cape and points to the south definitely did. the good news is for new hampshire and the surrounding areas, this storm is pretty much over. all of the energy quickly moving to the north and east. we still have a couple of lingering showers across the state. all of new hampshire still seeing flurries. maine as well. even the cape. we had blizzard conditions across the cape earlier today
5:56 pm
with totals of 8 to 9 inches of snow. areas around coastal portions of new hampshire saw about 5 inches. but majority of the state saw less than 2 inches of snow. we still have those winter weather advisories in place through tomorrow morning. luckily, that blizzard warning has been canceled and so we are going to still continue to get some of the flurries as we go through the overnight hours and even into tomorrow for new hampshire. so we could pick up an additional 2 inches of snow over the next 12 hours or so. it will be tapering off as we get into tomorrow, though. that's the good news. they are sandwiched right in between these two systems. basically, one is exiting and another one is coming tomorrow. but luckily, that one is going to pass to the south of new hampshire. so they should steer clear. however, the mid-atlantic states are going to get a little bit of rain and even snow from that. but new hampshire should be good to go for the primary. anderson? >> that's good news for people turning out to vote.
5:57 pm
jennifer gray, thanks. up next, donald trump on the attack taking the verbal assault to a whole new level. more on that and much more when "360" continues. lood pressure. that's why there's coricidin® hbp. it relieves cold symptoms without raising blood pressure. so look for powerful cold medicine with a heart. coricidin® hbp. at ally bank, no branches equals great rates. it's a fact. kind of like vacations equal getting carried away. more proactive selling.

6:00 pm
