tv Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans CNN February 9, 2016 2:00am-3:01am PST
john kasich all sit with nine votes. as for where things stand in the race, heading into today, donald trump kept his lead in the latest cnn/wmur poll. he led in all of the polls before the iowa caucuses before he lost to ted cruz. maybe that is why cruz was the target at the trump rally. a woman shouted a vulgar term for wimp and trump repeated it. >> she just said a terrible thing. you know what she said? shout it out. i don't want to say [ bleep ]. okay. you're not allowed to say and i never expect to hear that from you again. she said he's a [ bleep ]. that's terrible. >> trump is going after all of his rivals.
jim acosta with more on that. >> reporter: john and christine, along with the snow in new hampshire, a blizzard of insults and putdown was trump and bush. at one point, bush called trump a liar and whiner. the campaign is confident. the trump campaign sees a big difference between iowa and new hampshire. they believe iowa was more about explaining the confusing caucus process to iowans and new hampshire is pure getting out the vote. that is why you saw this big splashy rally in manchester where donald trump actually went after marco rubio. here's what he had to say. >> i'm standing at the debate. i'm watching marco sweating like a dog on my right. marco was having a hard time. he's a nice guy. again and again. after three times, i have a very good memory. after three times, i said wait. he said that three minutes ago.
then i said, wait. he said that two minutes ago. the same thing. so after the fifth time, i said what the hell's going on. >> reporter: and the closing argument for trump is what it has been all along. he is hitting the audience with what he said all the time. the wall on the border and scrap obamacare and iran nuclear deal. john and christine. >> jim for us covering donald trump. what about the democratic side? bernie sanders way out in front in the latest cnn/wmur poll. he is at 61% to clinton's 35%. bernie sanders is predicting a very, very good night. now the clinton campaign has a new problem. trying to explain away a politico report that hillary and bill clinton are upset with the quality of the campaign operation and planning changes. insiders say bill clinton is complaining about a lack of imagination.
the campaign is playing it too safe. hillary clinton denying that report saying, quote, we're going to take stock, but i'm confident in the people that i have. cnn's joe johns with the latest. >> reporter: john and christine, hillary clinton's closing argument came here in a high school auditorium in hudson, new hampshire. she's down in the polls, but surrounded by a large crowd. also in attendance, former president bill clinton and her daughter chelsea clinton. bill clinton said he is concerned that the campaign has lacked imagination so far, but tonight, hillary clinton called on the people in the audience to imagine the world her campaign is all about. >> i really want you to imagine with me. imagine what we can do together. imagine an economy that does work for everybody again. imagine we finally get to
universal health care coverage so that every single man, woman and child has access to the quality health care that he or she needs. this is a huge, huge issue to me personally and one of the contrasts between me and sanders. >> reporter: one question is weather and how that effects the turnout. heavy snowfall is expected to end on tuesday. there could be messy roads and that could be a factor in a state where the voters say the responsibility in the first the nation primary very seriously. john and christine. >> joe, thanks. here is the latest weather report. flurries. we just checked outside. flurries. probably not enough to keep voters away. joining us to talk about the big day here in new hampshire. kayleigh mcenany. a trump supporter. also ron brownstein.
ron, by say 10:00 or 11:00 tonight, what will we know? >> a couple of things. first of all, in the republican party, they have never in the modern primary never not nominated someone beyond the winners of iowa and new hampshire. every one of the winners have won iowa or new hampshire. presidents are made to be broken, but that is real. on the democratic side, twice they picked people. mcgovern in '72 and a guy named clinton in '92. will know if bernie sanders strength in iowa among young people is conferrirmed in new hampshire. we will know if he is more competitive. >> he lost democrats in iowa. >> by almost 20 points in iowa. as mccain showed in 2000 on the republican side was similar early to bernie sanders here. even in the states he was winning. eventually you have to get people to vote for you. the question is whether or not
we get a signal out of new hampshire to allow the center right mainstream conservative lane to consolidate with the donald trump and ted cruz. >> kayleigh, there is a better than even chance or lack of consolidation that we come out of here more muddled. maybe jeb bush and john kasich and marco rubio all survive at least five candidates for south carolina. >> no doubt about it. marco rubio is continuing. jeb bush has the resources to continue. he is on the ballot in all 40 states. he has a strong infrastructure being a bush. his name plays well. he has the incentive to go on and play this out. kasich, if he comes in second, he is moving on despite low polling in south carolina. you could see three people come out of this. the field whittled down to five. chris christie, i don't see a way forward. polling him under carly fiorina who did not participate in the debate. as you pointed out, that poll
only polled two days after the debate. >> john, that is an advantage for ted cruz and donald trump. what we are talking about is the pool of voters most resistant to both. that center right, white collar, middle manager type republican. that is the group of the party that would power the victory of john mccain and mitt romney. we are talking about going into south carolina with them fundamentally fragmented. >> as long as they are split, the middle center of the party is split. >> right. look, i was at the rally last night. i felt i was watching a trump trap. by inclination or necessity, he feels he has to feed his supporters with outrageous behavior. part what have they like is he is willing to break all of the
boundaries of acceptable political discourse. he is serious about shaking things up. the problem for the republican party, that raises doubts if he has the temperament to be president. in the closing argument, he had to feed them with the outrageous behavior. it shows the limits you face in broadening the group of voters. the problem is the voters is not consolidat consolidated. >> you look at the iowa polling and 70% of the vote went to non establishment candidates. i include ted cruz among them. they were both one and two in iowa. ted cruz, there is a chance he could pull off a second place victory. three points behind rubio. polling didn't have the brightest day in iowa. if by some majestic way he did, that would be huge. it would show this is an outsider election. >> he would like that if nothing more than to keep marco rubio out. i want to talk about the democrats, ron. you covered a lot of campaigns.
you go into primary day fighting off a story like we're not going to fire all of our campaign staff, which is the story that hillary clinton is dealing with right now. that is not the best day. >> think about this. hillary clinton in two consecutive races has wondered into the same cul-de-sac. she is running against someone with a big bold version and she is the chaperon at the fraternity party. the change is too big. she is presenting herself as the pragmatist. she is saying, the campaign hasn't given me the strong enough message. you have to look in the mirror. a lot of similarities to the argument she has made last time. it would be difficult if not impossible in the current political lineup to do what bernie sanders says. that is not enough of a lift or message to get people excited. she faces a big inspiration gap
with young people. you look at shaking up the campaign. the bigger problem is she has to look in the mirror and think how do i give people more of a reason to vote for me than i can take a punch? >> she has nevada and south carolina. she has a few weeks to figure this out. they will do that a lot in the clinton headquarters. >> two polls yesterday. hillary clinton with 68% and both among african-american voters. whatever happens here, bernie sanders has the hill to climb. >> ron brownstein and kayleigh mcenany, thank you. they are already casting votes. dixville notch. christine romans, it is all happening. >> how is the news of michael bloomberg mulling a potential bid? how is that resonating in the last moments here? >> i would say roughly 0%. if you want the truth.
i think everyone is focused on the candidates here. michael bloomberg made his intentions clear weeks ago. now he said it out loud to an actual newspaper. we know he has to make a decision by march 1st. he is not on the ballot here right now. it is a curiosity, but doesn't take attention away. >> well said. thank you, john berman. voters in new hampshire enjoy one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country. 3.1%. the falling national average of 4.9%. below 5% for the first time since 2008. there is a feeling the economy is not good enough. it is resonating on the campaign trail. one reason why, a smaller share of the adult population is working. 6.7%. one reason why is baby bombers retiring. the second reason, a large number of people looking for jobs and cannot find one.
the third reason, wages are not going up. the take home pay is about the same as it was 20 years ago. interesting fun election fact. the lowest national unemployment rate of an election year anytime since 1968, yet, that is not being felt on the campaign trail. the campaigns talking about opportunity wages and jobs. 12 minutes past the hour. president obama taking new action to prevent the spread of the zika virus in the u.s. why the white house is so concerned. i have that next. we stop arthritis pain, so you don't have to stop. because you believe in go. onward. today's the day. carpe diem. tylenol® 8hr arthritis pain has two layers of pain relief. the first is fast. the second lasts all day. we give you your day back. what you do with it is up to you. tylenol®.

you know what she said? shout it out because i don't want to say [ bleep ]. okay. you are not allowed to say and i never expect to hear that from you again. she said -- i never expect to hear that from you again. she said he's a [ bleep ]. terrible. >> trump has been ridiculing other rivals as well. jim acosta has more. >> reporter: john and christine, a blizzard of insults and putdowns with trump and bush. trump called bush a child and bush called trump a liar and whiner. the campaign is confident. the trump campaign sees a big difference between iowa and new hampshire. new hampshire's pure getting out the vote is why you saw this big splashy rally here in manchester. donald trump actually went after
marco rubio and his performance at the weekend debate. here is what he said. >> i'm standing at the debate. i'm watching marco sweating like a dog on my right. honestly, marco is having a hard time. he's a nice guy. he's a nice guy. i mean, again and again. i have a very good memory. after three times, i said wait a minute. he said that three minutes ago. then i said, wait, wait. he said that two minutes ago. the same thing. so after the fifth time, i said what the hell's going on. >> reporter: and trump's closing argument is what it has been all along. hitting the lines that his audience seems to expect every time. vowing to build the wall along the mexican border and escalate the war on isis and scrap the obamacare and nuclear deal with iran. jim, thanks so much. on the democratic side, bernie sanders way out in front in the latest cnn/wmur poll. he is at 61% and hillary clinton at 35%.
sanders predicting a very, very good night. the clinton campaign has a new problem trying to explain away a politico report that both bill and hillary clinton are upset with the quality of the campaign operation and might be planning changes. insiders think bill clinton believes the campaign is lacking imagination and playing it too safe. hillary clinton said quote, we are going to take stock. i'm confident in the people that i have. cnn's joe johns has the latest. >> reporter: john and christine, hillary clinton's closing argument came here in a high school auditorium in hudson, new hampshire. she's down in the polls, but surrounded by a large crowd also in attendance was former president bill clinton and daughter chelsea clinton. bill clinton said he is concerned that the campaign has lacked imagination so far. tonight, hillary clinton called on the people in the audience to
imagine the world her campaign is all about. >> i really want you to imagine with me, imagine what we can do together. imagine an economy that does work for everybody again. imagine we finally get to universal health care coverage so that every single man, woman and child has access to the quality health care that he or she needs. this is a huge, huge issue to me personally and it is also one of the contrasts between me and senator sanders. >> reporter: one question is about how weather could affect turnout. a heavy snowfall on monday. it was expected to end on tuesday. still there could be messy roads and that could be a factor even in the state where the voters take their responsibility in the first in the nation primary very seriously. john and christine. >> joe johns, thanks to you.
we saw the snow plows out hard at work this morning. hopefully they will clear that snow away. joining us to talk about the political situation and political forecast, kayleigh mcenany and senior political analyst ron brownstein. ron, it is the first in the nation primary today. we have been talking about two factors that are huge in new hampshire. unique to new hampshire. at least rare around the country. number one, the idea you can walk into the poll and vote for either party. the idea that voters remain undecided until the last moment. >> you meet voters and you say i met them three times. you can i make a decision. independents cast 47% of the votes in the last republican primary in 2012. 44% of the votes in the last democratic primary in 2008. that is why new hampshire can sometimes send false positives. you can win the primary here
without necessarily winning the voters in your own party. john mccain when he won the state big in 2000. ran among republicans against george w. bush. i think tonight one of the things we watch particularly on the democratic side, what happens among democrats. no question bernie sanders has the upper hand. he will win independents big. in iowa, he lost democrats by almost 20 points. if he doesn't do well today, that would indicate a challenge he would have to get over as the race goes on. >> kayleigh, what is the parallel to that? trump and john kasich playing to democrats. >> kasich is left of donald trump in some ways. we were talking about how donald trump has the populous message. he is very much left leaning with trade and things like the medicare. >> donald trump last night came up for medicare to lower prescription drug prices.
something republicans fought for 15 years. hillary clinton has endorsed. >> that just speaks to donald trump being an outsider. he is not the stereo typical republican. he is forging a new path. they will play strongly to him and kasich will peel some of those off. it is not a coveted title in the republican party. >> ron, expectations gained for trump. double digits lead heading into today with the polls. does he need to lead by double digits here? >> they have to see whether in fact they can deliver polling. in iowa, they under performed the polling. we don't know if donald trump has drifted down from january. he was falling at 35. now it is more like 30 here and in some of the other states. it is important for him to see what his coalition looks like.
does he reestablish that dominance with the polling. if trump wins here and no one emerges from the center right lane, i think trump is the favorite going into south carolina. >> if he can pull off a win that is 3 or 4 points above the low double digit lead, it would be big. romney was polling high 20s and came out at 17%. if trump can win low double digits, that is huge for him. >> we were talking before. you have the reverse situation of the normal situation. you have the establishment splintered. conservatives is more united in two camps. evangelical camp for cruz. the establishment that is having trouble finding a candidate. >> unlike in 2012. it is a mirror image opposite.
>> ron brownstein, dealing with the reports of the campaign shake up for hillary clinton. >> the first two races, you can say all white states, the democratic party hasn't weighed in. hillary clinton has a firewall. the polls came out in north carolina and new york. all that is real. there is no question the first two races are also showing weakness for her. inspiration gap that is translating into the generation gap where she is losing voters under 45 and including women by big margins. she wandered into the position much like with obama. she is presenting herself as a technician to take a punch and move ideas, but offering not nearly as much lift as she needs against a candidate who is promising to lead a campaign and movement. >> this is the last time i get to talk to you. prediction for tonight? >> trump wins.
rubio with a close second and kasi kasich. >> ron. >> trump wins and a clump without clear definition. sanders wins. >> ron and kayleigh, thank you for being here. i appreciate it. christine romans, we will know. the great thing about new hampshire is it counts quickly. a fast voting state. fast counting state. we should know what's happened here by 10:00. >> what is fascinating by new hampshire, 3.1% unemployment rate. one of the lowest in the nation. resonating with the campaigns worried about it being rigged for rich people. that will play out. 4.9% is the jobless rate nationwide. second lowest since an election year of 1968. >> 2000 was the other one. >> it is interesting you have the low unemployment rate.
