it upon himself to assist the man. picture goes viral and what does the store do? they give colin a customer satisfaction award from the chain usually given to an entire department. they made colin the first person to ever receive this as an individual. >> really cool. >> he did the whole work of a team is what they are trying to tell him. >> that's great. much like carol costello every day. time for news room now. >> there is no i in team. you guys have a great day. news room starts now. happening now donald trump looking to hit the jackpot in nevada. is he unstoppable?

6:02 am
hitting the state trying to lock in last minute support. with jeb bush out of the race the race is on to capture his supporters and his donors as trump rides momentum after saturday's big win. >> we won with everything. we won with women. i love the women. we won with women. we won with men. i'd rather win with women to be honest. we won with evangelicals. we won with the military. we won with highly educated, pretty well educated and poorly educated. but we won with everything. >> and with super tuesday just around the corner the big question on everyone's mind is trump unstoppable? let's bring in chris live in las
6:03 am
vegas this morning. >> reporter: good morning from sin city where republicans are getting ready for the next round of the bruising primary fight. the top three winners in south carolina coming out across the state to tell voters their message. donald trump trying to cement his lead at the top of this field. ted cruz is arguing he is the only real conservative in this feeltd. and then marco rubio making the case that he is the only candidate to unite republicans and defeat democrats in november. barn storming across nevada. trump sweeping victory in south carolina over the weekend still sinking in. >> we have to go out and vote. >> trump is looking to build on momentum after back-to-back victories with sights set on super tuesday. >> i will tell you what, we are going one after another. are we going to win georgia? >> reporter: the gop front runner were stirring up
6:04 am
controversy by retweeting this message claiming cruz and rubio are ineligible to beat potus. >> somebody said he is not and i retweeted it. i retweet things and start dialogue. >> i'm going to spend zero time on his interpretation of the constitution with regards to eligibility and i will talk about what this campaign should be about. >> questioning eligibility for the presidency is a favorite trump attack. texas senator is sharpening his counter attack. >> for folks who are concerned that donald trump is not the best candidate to go head to head it is becoming clearer and clearer that we are the one campaign to beat donald trump and the only one that has beaten donald trump. >> and marco rubio making the case that he is the new face of the conservative movement. >> of people left in this race no one can unite this movement or this party faster than i can.
6:05 am
we will unite the republican party and conservative movement. >> so one candidate missing in action here in the silver state, jeb bush. he dropped out of the race after a disappointing fourth place finish in south carolina and that huge republican field we started the race with last year down to just five candidates going into tomorrow's caucuses. >> reporting live from las vegas this morning. donald trump as you heard is still throwing punches while opponents seem content with duking it out for second place. before we talk rancor let's pause to imagine what it would be like if our politicians got along. >> i like ted cruz. he has been nice to me. >> an issue where bernie and i are in complete agreement. ♪ how sweet it is to be loved by you ♪ ♪ how sweet it is to be loved by
6:06 am
you ♪ >> just trust me. donald trump once again using the birther card retweeting this message claiming cruz and rubio are ineligible to be president of the united states. rubeio's parents were born in cuba. rubio was born in miami, florida. with me now is trump supporter and staff writer for weekly standard is with me, too. >> good morning. >> so this birther thing -- >> say that one more time? >> this birther thing, seriously? >> i'm getting something in the mic. say that one more time. >> can you hear me clearly enough? we will fix jeff's technical problems.
6:07 am
jeff, are you back? >> i'm back. there we go. >> you are back. the birther thing, seriously? >> well, it's a very good thing to point out. obviously, the democrats aren't going to say anything about it now but bring it up later. ted cruz was not born in america. he was born in canada and moved here when he was 4 years old. marco rubio has a different problem in that both parents were not legal residents of the united states. here you have somebody whose parents were here and not -- as far as -- >> jeff, jeff, jeff, jeff -- >> there is a question. >> no, jeff. michael, help me out here. there is no question that marco rubio is an american citizen. he was born in miami, florida. doesn't matter where his parents
6:08 am
came from. ted cruz is an american citizen. right? he was born to an american mother. michael, help me out. >> there is nothing more to say. the truth is that marco rubio is born in the united states. he is a u.s. citizen, no question about it. and i think it is ridiculous for anybody supporting trump to say otherwise and to sort of call into question conspiracy theories. the idea that if your parents had to both be citizens for you to be a citizen then none of us would be citizens. logical fallacy. this is just nothing else to say but ridiculous. >> my father wouldn't be an american citizen because both of his parents were born in italy. here is a question for you. why does donald trump resort to these things? he is so far ahead he doesn't need to. >> one of the topics of the entire campaign, entire election
6:09 am
is immigration. and with the gop they want to know that someone is strong on the border and strong on immigration and obviously that is where nobody can touch where donald trump is. donald trump is leading the pack. he is by far the strongest at protecting our country when we have drugs pouring over the border. myself being in arizona we know first-hand tens of thousands of people who come over illegally there is drugs pouring over. we have isis coming over the border. you have these problems. only one candidate will do anything to fix it and that is donald trump. when you look at someone like marco rubio and pro-amnesty stance, when you look back and think look at his parents and how they were both not legal citizens when he was born it starts to play a role in the gop electorate in how they are going to vote. >> so there is no clear evidence that isis is pouring over the mexican/united states border. hold on.
6:10 am
michael, marco rubio, his response to all of this is just rather tepid. he seems content to duke it out with ted cruz for second place. >> i think the idea if i gather things correctly from the rubio folks is that donald trump really isn't -- has a ceiling. there was a memo sent out by the campaign that suggested that donald trump doesn't really have room to grow. if you do want to take him on and beat him and win the nomination you have to take him on. i'm a little perplexed why rubio does doont that. you can listen to jeff here and it is kind of insane to have to go toe to toe with people who are just talking about random things that have nothing to do with each other. marco rubio's heritage has nothing to do with his position
6:11 am
on immigration, just kind of a red herring to talk about with rubeio's position on the issue. he may be in the wrong on it. it is just kind of insane to hear what i'm hearing. >> i have to leave it there. thanks to both of you. the five remaining republican presidential candidates will meet for the next gop debate this thursday night in houston. wolf blitzer will moderate the debate only on cnn. a strong win in nevada and a sharper message from hillary clinton. >> we are all in this together. we all have to do our part. we need you to be part of that exciting journey we can make together. with your help that is the tomorrow we will build for our country. >> bernie sanders and hillary clinton's next face-off saturday in south carolina. clinton holding a commanding
6:12 am
lead among democrats there in the latest cnn poll of polls. jeff is in charleston with more on this. >> reporter: there is no question that the clinton campaign is coming into south carolina where the primary on saturday is so important. she is coming in here with a strong lead and trying to avenge her loss here eight years ago. we talked about iowa and new hampshire and about '08 there. in 2008 for her here in south carolina it was such a punishing loss to barack obama. she wants to avenge that and looks like she has a strong commanding lead here. bernie sanders was campaigning here yesterday and went with black pastors and asked south carolina voters to make history. let's take a listen. >> south carolina has the opportunity to make american history and i hope you will.
6:13 am
this campaign has taken on the economic establishment, all of the big money interest. let me tell you, wall street is getting nervous. >> it is an open question. hillary clinton is going to be campaigning throughout the week with mothers of children who have died through gun violence, one way to distinguish her record from senator sanders we have only had three contests. clinton has 496 delegates compared to 69 delegates for bernie sanders. they are even on the number of pledge delegates. the superdelegates who pledged their support to her give her
6:14 am
overwhelming support. the reality is it will go on for weeks and months to come. she has a big lead in delegates. that is a very important thing to keep in mind. clinton and sanders come face-to-face with voters of south carolina for the final time tomorrow night. a democratic town hall starts at 8:00 eastern. still to come the uber driver suspected of gunning down six victims in kalamazoo is stepping in front of a judge. we wonerere. and here. and here. here. and here. uh, here. also in here. back there. behind here. even next to these guys, here. in the nation's largest, independent study, rootmetrics just named verizon number one network for the fifth time in a row, here. so when the other guys claim they're the best, remember: there's only one, number one. and now we'll pay up to $650 to switch to the best network. this one right here.

a suspect in the kalamazoo shootings is expected to be arraigned on multiple murder charges. investigators believe jason dalton, an uber driver drove through the michigan city saturday night gunning down six seemingly random victims. cnn's ryan young in michigan with more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning.
6:19 am
lot of questions. obviously this community is so very upset. saw a lot of people joining hands talking about this out loud because they don't have a motive for why this crime happened. this is 62-year-old mary lou nye. she was killed. a lot of people in this community want to know what happened and why. kalamazoo is in mourning looking for answers after six people were killed and two others injured in shooting rampage on saturday night. >> this is the opportunity to pray for victims. >> authorities say the suspect doesn't appear to be connected to victims.
6:20 am
coldly done is what i want to say. >> neighbors who know the alleged shooter say they are in shock. >> seemed like a normal guy. it is so strange. wondering what might have caused him to do this. >> reporter: dalton worked as an uber driver. a passenger who rode in the car just before the shooting said he was acting strange. >> we were driving through medians, driving through a lawn. once he came to a stop i jumped out of the car and ran away. >> reporter: authorities say the nearly 7 hour shooting spree started. 5:42 p.m. a woman is shot several times in a parking lot at an apartment complex. she survived but is in serious condition. 10:08 p.m. richard smith and his 17-year-old son tyler are shot and killed at a car dealership. at 10:24 p.m. dalton pulls into this parking lot at a cracker barrel where he allegedly kills four women in their cars.
6:21 am
a 14-year-old girl was shot but survived. after midnight police locate dalton's car. >> determine this is our suspect. he was taken into custody. >> reporter: investigators believe dalton was looking to pick up passengers even after the final shooting. uber said in a statement we are horrified and heart broken at the senseless violence. we have reached out to the police to help with their investigation in any way that we can. there was some initial confusion about the 14 year old. they thought she was dead. she is still alive. the first shooting happened to the woman who also survived who was shot in front of several children. people asking the questions and trying to figure out motives as the arraignment is just a few hours away. a lot of people are hoping that police will provide answers. with a tragedy like this nothing will probably make lives complete again in terms of what has happened here. >> you are right.
6:22 am
there are no good answers. reporting live from kalamazoo, michigan. apple's fight with the fbi is getting more complicated. victims of the san bernardino terror attack are expected to throw their support behind the government and call on apple to break into an iphone used by one of the killers. cnn justice reporter evan perez and laurie siegel has more on this. >> good morning. steven larsson is the name of the attorney, former judge in california. he says he is now representing several of the victims and families from the san bernardino attack. he says they are weighing in on the side of the government because they have a lot of questions that need to be answered. the fbi director for his part weighed in himself for the first time personally with a blog post on the blog there in that he says this is an investigation that is not about everybody's cell phone. this is only about one
6:23 am
terrorist's cell phone and says the san bernardino litigation isn't about trying to set a precedent or send any kind of message. it is about the victims and justice. 14 people were slaughtered and many more -- we owe them a thorough and professional investigation. despite the fact that the fbi is trying to limit the case and make this only about one cell phone in san bernardino no doubt this is a broader case and broader implication. law enforcement in new york, for instance, has weighed in saying they have 175 phones they would like open. if the fbi gets its wish there will be other requests coming. >> that is why apple is fighting against the fbi. i understand the apple's ceo e-mailed employees. >> he put up a letter that says thank you for your support and put out a public q&a because a lot of folks are looking at the fbi allegations and want to know
6:24 am
what can apple do. i want to read you a little of what tim cook said. he said the case is about much more than a single phone or single investigation. at stake is data security of hundreds of millions of law abiding people and setting a dangerous precedent. he went on to suggest is that fbi withdraw their demand and put together some kind of commission with experts from civil liberty and said apple would be happy to participate in this. one thing also interesting in this q&a is that they have the technical ability to open up this phone to be able to build a new operating system. but what he said is we should not fill this tool and a dangerous tool. some technology shouldn't be built. >> thanks to both of you. >> the democrats zeroing in on the black vote in the bids for the white house. bernie sanders close the gap with hillary clinton. i want a great shape.

bill cosby's wife will soon be under oath, a judge forcing camille cosby to be deposed. eight women are suing bill cosby for deaf nation in relation to sexual assault accusations against him. jean caserez is following this. >> it is amazing that we have gotten this because this is a 71-year-old woman. she has been married 51 years to bill cosby. now she at this moment believed sitting for a deposition. we haven't seen her enter the hotel at the marriott hotel in springfield, massachusetts. remember, it is a hotel, she could have stayed there overnight. we have seen an attorney enter the hotel thmpt reason we have come to this point is that this
6:30 am
was a defamation suit brought by accusers of bill cosby saying that we know the statute of limitations has expired that we were sexually assaulted but you defamed us when you and your people said we were liars. we are not liars. we are going to bring this defamation suit against you. they counter sued bill cosby at the end of last year saying wait a minute, you defamed me. you are saying everything you did hurt my business dealings. the lady you are looking at in the red, camille, cosby, she is the business manager for bill cosby and has been for many, many years. so that, then, carol gave these women the right to depose her and it has been a big legal battle because she is trying to say i have a marital privilege and there is a marital privilege but it is very -- a lot of legal ease here. you can depose somebody even though it can't come into court
6:31 am
because you can use that information. by being a business manager there are many things that would not be under the marital privilege. it is a fight, will continue to be a fight and we will have to see if it is sealed and number two if she does answer questions. >> jean caserez, i'm sure you will continue to follow this for us. and good morning. i'm carol costello. thank you for joining me with democratic south carolina primary on saturday hillary clinton and bernie sanders are ramping up outreach to african-americans, part of their efforts coming during dueling sit down interviews with bet. sanders pulling no punches accusing clinton of cozying up to president obama in order to pander to black voters. >> everything the president does is wonderful. we know what that is about trying to win support from the
6:32 am
african-american community. >> but as the "new york times" points out sanders set a lukewarm reception to a black south carolina church. for the most part the parishioners ignored him. clinton is making a pitch to african-american church goers making a surprise appearance at the stellar awards. >> i feelported by the large majority of african-american community. i feel trusted by them. i realize that there are questions that deserve answers which is what i'm trying to provide. i am trying to lead a conversation that doesn't just
6:33 am
address african-americans but goes right at talking with white americans about the perspective they need to have in hearing about the barriers that african-americans face. clinton supporter and democratic strategist. so is clinton pandering? she did accept the invitation to be the secretary of state. >> pandering might be overstated. she is certainly playing the long game. the clintons found ways to appeal to the african-american community whether bill clinton playing saxophone many years ago or whether going to selma eight years ago as did president obama they attempted to appeal to black voters. yes the tone changes. she knows the kind of cultural
6:34 am
etiquette. that is a kind of appeal. it is contradicting and critics argue by public policy which under mines the prosperity. >> going back to her full embrace of president obama, sanders accusing clinton of pandering but took a swipe at obama saying like any other human being he is wrong on certain issues. that is fair, isn't it? >> i think that criticism has fallen flat especially in the african-american community because president obama enjoys a sky high approval rating among african-americans and hillary clinton is a lot more than just the symbolism of going to selma or going to black churches. she actually has a four decades long record of working on issues that are important to african-americans. >> going back to the president obama, he is fallible. he makes mistakes. why is it so wrong to bring that
6:35 am
up? sanders has every right to bring up any issue that he believes could differentiate him with hillary clinton. i don't think this is one that will work in his favor when he does so because president obama is so popular among african-americans. it's more than that. it is because the things that president obama has done for the african-american community and frankly for the country as a whole are things that hillary clinton can point to that she will continue and that will help prosper the prosperity among african-americans. let's take obama care. the african-american has prosperred in terms of having health insurance that they didn't have before with obama care. >> there are -- not like the -- job quality and income has increased for black americans
6:36 am
under president obama? >> i think that was bernie sanders point. it's not as if he is going to end obama care. i'm not saying this proxy at all. what bernie sanders articulated to me was that he wants to continue the advances of the clinton administration, as well, the obama administration, well-. he sees a key area of intervention where obama missed the mark with old school trade policies. those things bernie sanders is saying differentiates him from both president obama and secretary clinton and says those things will actually be more beneficial to the black community than hillary's policies. >> hillary clinton is trying to sort of steer the conversation away from that single issue
6:37 am
because she is rolling into south carolina with this mother strategy, five african-american mothers who lost sons to gun violence will be in south carolina to campaign for clinton. how is hillary clinton trying to shape the conversation when it comes to race? >> i think that is something she can historically talk about because from decades ago when she went under cover to work for desegregation in alabama's public schools she can point to a record of standing up for or against racial profiling and other issues that have affected the african-american community. bernie sanders i think it is terrific that he is vying for the african-american vote. he should. it is a terrific debate to have. no question about that. when you talk about, for example, the crime bill that president clinton signed into law, he never talks about how he signed -- he supported it also and he voted for it. so between sanders and hillary clinton there is only one person
6:38 am
who voted for that crime bill and has never apologized for it. so these are the facts. these are facts that need to be out there when this kind of debate is happening which is a good one. >> last word? >> bernie sanders absolutely gotten a free pass and he should not. he pushed back against it several times and said he accepted the bill because of other things in it around women's rights. that aside, hillary clinton was in a position but endorsed it and used the language of superpredator. a whole range of policies that did have a disproportionate impact on black people. she certainly endorsed policy that had negative impact on black people. >> when she was a senator she worked towards making those better. >> i have to leave it there.

the death tol climbing after a series of suicide bombings. the blast so powerful the entire face of this building is gone. the syrian observatory reporting more than 180 people are dead. three suicide bombers striking while two car bombs hit the city. isis is claiming responsibility. nick paton walsh is in beirut with more on this. >> reporter: that attack now could have killed over 130 people we are hearing from activists making it in their eyes perhaps deadliest attacks so far of syria's civil war.
6:44 am
depends how you interpret an attack. this comes death toll potentially as high as 200 for those episodes of violence as the nation is supposed to be experiencing beginnings of what john kerry called cessation of hostilities. they do say their provincial agreement could end up being cessation of hostilities there are a lot of things left to do and talked about how barack obama needs ahead to finalize this. what is missing in this? we are having a discussion between moscow and washington about how peace can be inside syria. in that discussion you don't have main actors on the ground or their often distant political representatives who talk about peace on their behalf. that is a key problem and gives you a shock as to what kind of
6:45 am
cold war discussion this has become. many think they might have traction because the americans influence many rebels and moscow is the key backers of damascus, syrian regime. fighters are involved in this behind the weekend's attack. al qaeda branch in syria not meant to be a part of cessation of hostilities at all. they may disrupt slow down in violence and the death toll higher than it has ever been inside syria, a time when we are according to the state department maybe edging towards peace. >> nick paton walsh reporting live this morning. still to come, think south carolina's battle over the confederate flag ended when it was removed from the state house? think again. how the issue has found its way into the 2016 presidential cam pain. absolutely ageless® night cream aveeno® with active naturals® blackberry complex ... ... a whole new way to keep skin looking younger longer ...

6:50 am
remove d last year from south carolina's state house grounds. the confederate flag is front and center. the democratic national committee is using the issue using the flag to attack donald trump claiming 70% of the supporters think the flag should still fly over the state's capital. a superpac blasted trump saying he approved of removing the flag. in the meantime it's in a box waiting for someone to decide what to do with it. >> this is where the flag
6:51 am
removed from the memorial was brought on the day when it was taken down. it's in our preparation room or in storage. as a plan is come up with how it's going to be displayed. >> among the options, displaying the flag in a relic room and military museum. my next guest says the cost should not be bjoorn by the taxpayers. >> hi. how are you? good morning. >> why is this still an issue? >> you know, i'm finding that it really is not an issue anymore. i feel like once we took it down from the state house grounds in july, we were settled on the fact that it was to come down. now, we also decided at the time that we voted it down that we would display it appropriately, and when we received from
6:52 am
consultants in december a proposal that cost at that point over $5 million, i think we were as, law clerks, up -- lawmaker in arms about the cost. >> one of our fellow lawmakers wants voters to decide whether to put the flag back on top of the state house. his bill would have a referendum to coincide with the presidential election. why the timing, do you suppose? >> for chris can korley's bill? >> yes. >> i think chris was one of the few people who voted to keep the flag up in july, and it's something that it may be what his constituents want. i think overwhelmingly across the state, i believe that south carolinians support the decision
6:53 am
that we ultimately made in july. >> are you surprised that the confederate flag has been injected into the presidential race. the dnc is using it. ted cruz is using it. >> it doesn't surprise me. you know, it certainly was a major issue here in south carolina and certainly with the primaries and the way that we helped shape who will become the presidential nominee, i don't see that as something that does surprise me. but, again, you know, i feel as though it's a pretty settled issue. i think the people of south carolina have spoken, and believe that the decision that we made is the one that will hold. >> okay. and so for now the flag remains in that box that we just saw. >> yes. >> waiting for somebody to provide the money to display it, quote, unquote, appropriately. all right. south carolina state representative, thank you for joining me.

the supreme court goes back to work for the first time since the death of antonin scalia. the justices will be hearing oral argumentings in two cases today, and one of the seats will be draped in black cloth. pamela brown has more. >> reporter: good morning, carol. the supreme court is meeting today for the first time since the death of justice antonin scalia. the now eight justices will be hearing two cases today. and justice slcalia's chair wil be draped in black wool. it will be that way for 30 days,
6:59 am
per tradition. at the same time, congress is reconvening today, and the big fight will continue over who will fill justice scalia's vacancy. the democrats and republicans continue to dig in their heels. here at the supreme court, justice scalia's absence will be deeply felt. he was known for bringing humor and fire to the oral arguments. this will be a difficult day for the justices, no doubt. carol. >> all right. pamela brown reporting for us this morning. it's a video that's racked up millions of views. it's a pleasure to -- this is 106-year-old, virginia mclauren. look at how excited she is to meet the president and first lady. there she is, dancing. she starts dancing. she asked to meet the obamas in a petition started online more than a year ago. mclauren says she didn't think she'd ever live to see a black president. the obamas, she said? well, she said, they made her
7:00 am
day. the next hour of cnn news room starts now. happening now in the news room, donald trump looking to hit the jackpot in nevada. >> i love to win. don't we love to win? >> is he unstoppable? >> we're just going one after another. >> but not so fast. sanders says he's the guy to stop the gop front-runner. >> and you want a candidate who is going to defeat donald trump. you're looking at that candidate. >> as clinton tackles voters' trust issues? can she keep momentum rolling into south carolina? plus, an uber driver accused in a deadly shooting rampage in michigan. >> we were intentional, deliberate, coldly done is what i want to say. >> allegedly picking up passengers between killings. >> we were driving through medians and the lawn.
7:01 am
>> what we're learning about the suspect and the six victims. let's talk, live in the cnn news room. good morning. i'm carol costello. thank you so much for joining me. fresh off a big win in the south, donald trump takes his high rolling campaign to nevada. he's not alone. senators cruz and rubio also trying to lock in last-minute support today as they rally voters across the state. but for trump, it's all about basking in the sweeping victory in south carolina. >> we won with everything. we won with women. i love the women. we won with women. we won with men. eh. i'd rather win with women to be honest, but that's all. we won with evangelicals unbelievably. we won with the military.
7:02 am
we won with highly educated, pretty well educated and poorly educated. but we won with everything. >> and with jeb bush out, the race is onto capture his supporters and his donors. the big question now, will it be enough to slow trump's momentum? let's bring in cnn's chris frights in vegas this morning. hi, chris. >> reporter: good morning. all three of the top finishes in south carolina in nevada today, trying to get that last-minute support. donald trump, ted cruz, and marco rubio all trying to get their message out to voters here in a state that is always tough to poll. it's hard to know who's going to come out to these caucuses and donald trump is saying he's the front runner. he wants to cement that status with a win in nevada and be atop the polls. ted cruz saying he's the only real conservative in this race, and marco rubio's message, he's the only republican that with unite all the republicans and
7:03 am
defeat democrats in november. let's listen to how krooucruz a rubio are making their pitch to voters. >> if you vote for me,ly unite this party. if you vote for me, i will grow this party. if you vote for me, we will win this election. the democrats do not want to run against me. but i cannot wait to run against them. >> for folks who are concerned that donald trump is not the best candidate to go head to head with hillary clinton in november, it is becoming clearer and clearer that we are the one campaign that can beat donald trump. we're the only campaign that has beaten donald trump. so there you have the rationale behind cruz and rubio, but the attacks continue to come by donald trump even though he's the front-runner in nevada. he's not taking any chances saying that maybe rubio is not eligible to run for president because his parents were cuban immigrants. that's an attack familiar from
7:04 am
donald trump right out of his play book. he used it on ted cruz in iowa to some effect. now he's taking aim at rubio as he ascends and was essentially tied for second place in south carolina with ted cruz. donald trump taking some fire on marco rubio. marco rubio saying that's nonsense and not saying that it's any kind of deal. it's getting nasty here with only hours left to go before voting starts tomorrow. >> all right. chris reporting live from vegas. and marco rubio was born in miami, florida. trump is on a roll, seemingly unstoppable. consider this. the republican establishment spent $220 million so far and trump is still the front-runner. conservative talker and cruz supporter glenn beck is calling on his 3 million facebook followers to fast. he writes, quote, i pray and fast not for ted cruz to win but for his will to be done and that
7:05 am
our will and wants will align with his. with me to talk about this, the director for the center for politics at the university of virginia and a cnn political commentator is also with us. larry, is that all that's left to stop trump, prayer? >> look, praying and fasting are two terrific things, but i've never seen them win a political campaign. so, no, it's not going to happen. it can happen if the establishment which has been incredibly in disarray and unable to organize itself, finally gets together with jeb bush's withdrawal and decides to back a candidate. obviously they would pick rubio at this point, but it may be too little too late. they waited too long. and it's almost as though with bush's withdrawal, they woke up and they realized, my god, trump is almost the nominee.
7:06 am
>> so, tara, let's talk about endorsements. there is some talk that jeb bush ought to endorse rubio. it was such a contention fight between them that i can't see how that's possible. >> well, that was the fear, you know, for months leading up to jeb bush's ultimate demise. donors were frustrated by the fact that his right to rise pac was spending money going after rubio. i think that folks saw months ago that jeb bush was not the guy. this was not his year, and that rubio was the next great hope for the establishment if that was going to be the case. so they were very per plekplexe the fact that they spent money going after him and damaging him. now, how do you bridge that gap and have this unified front that rubio is now trying to message. that's the thing. i can bring everybody together. i think they ultimately will. you know, there's a lot of
7:07 am
trepidation going on within the power elites in washington about what's happening with donald trump. and larry is right. i think with bush out, they're looking at south carolina, the fact that trump won all of the delegates. he won every demographic and they're going, holy smokes, this is becoming a real thing. what are we going to do about this? >> john kasich is campaigning this morning. where is he? tell me, michelle. he's in virginia campaigning. larry, you had an interesting strategy for the establishment. you say the only hope is if marco rubio reaches out to john kasich and convinces him to be his vice president. why would that work? >> well, this was tried once before. the great strategy was approved by none other than ronald reagan. they all claimed to beat reagan's successor. reagan did it when he was trying to beat president ford. he came incredibly close. it didn't work, but it might
7:08 am
have. it's an option. if anti-trump forces play by the set of rules they have in front of them, they will lose. they had better come up with some new strategies, and this is an old one that they can convert into a new one. whether kasich would do it, i don't know. doesn't have to be kasich. do something different. >> do something different. well, i think, tara, there's some interest in that. according to columbus dispatch, the local paper for john kasich as he's ohio's governor. kasich's colorado campaign co-chair says she's endorsing rubio. she says kasich is a good guy, but even she says it's time. >> yeah. the john kasich factor is quite interesting, but he's staying in this because he thinks he's going to have a midwest strategy because he's ohio, the ohio governor. ohio is so important, and i believe it's a winner take all
7:09 am
all state. also the convention is there. what kasich is doing, i think, is going to determine a lot of what happens moving forward. we'll see. i mean, he has people in michigan, in colorado, in ohio. the kasich factor is an interesting one, but we'll see what happens. >> i'll let you get a drink of water. you're suffering what hillary clinton does on the campaign trail. the coughing attacks are awful. tha thank to both of you. bernie sanders is setting his sights on a south carolina miracle after a tough loss in nevada. >> south carolina has the opportunity to make american history, and i hope you will. this campaign has taken on the economic establishment, all of the big money interest and let me tell you, wall street is getting nervous.
7:10 am
>> clinton holds a commanding lead among democrats in south carolina with 57% support in the latest cnn poll of polls. jeff zeleny live with more in charleston. hi, jeff. >> good morning, carol. there's no question that choint clint -- hillary clinton is coming with a commanding lead and the energy of the campaign behind her. bernie sanders was out campaigning in greenville yesterday. you heard him talking right there. he's trying to make this economic argument that you can trust him more on income inequality and trust him more on breaking up the establishment, but the clinton campaign has a considerable muscle here. she's going to be campaigning beginning tomorrow through saturday. now, bernie sanders is -- has his eye on other super tuesday states. he's in massachusetts. he'll be in virginia tomorrow before coming to south carolina. they're not putting all their eggs in the south carolina basket.
7:11 am
the clinton campaign has strengths here. she's still trying to show that he is a single issue candidate. listen to what hillary clinton said early sunday morning in houston, texas. >> i don't think it's right to look a person in the eye who is hurting and needs help and tell them that if they vote for you, you will get $5,000 of health care but only have to pay $500 for it. you shouldn't say that unless you can really deliver it. >> so hillary clinton is trying to sort of be a fact checker, if you will, on bernie sanders' plan and trying to point out that some of the things he's talking about, about universal health care and free college or just simply not workable in this kind of washington. that's the dynamic going into what's going to be surely an interesting town meeting tomorrow night in south carolina when both of these candidates take questions from voters who are going to have their say just on saturday in this south carolina primary.
7:12 am
>> all right. reporting live from charleston j south carolina. as jeff said, clinton and sanders will come face to face with the voters in south carolina this tuesday night right here on cnn. the democratic town hall live from south carolina, 8:00 p.m. eastern. it will be moderated by chris cuomo. still to come, an uber driver under arrest accused in a shooting rampage that killed six people. now we're hearing from passengers he allegedly picked up during his shooting spree. now that karen's taking osteo bi-flex, she's noticing a real difference in her joint comfort... karen: "she's single." ...and high levels of humiliation in her daughter. in just 7 days, your joint comfort can be your kid's discomfort. osteo bi-flex. made to move. i'm here to get the lady of the house back on her feet. and give her the strength and energy to stay healthy.

this is my ancestor who i didn't know about. he looks a little bit like me, yes. ancestry has many paths to discovering your story. get started for free at all right. we have some new interviews from uber passengers who say they got rides from suspected killer, jason dalton on the day he allegedly massacred six people in michigan. one witness says he was with the 46-year-old before the rampage. the other witness was after dealten after the spree and even asked delton if he was the killer. >> he got a mile from my house.
7:17 am
he got a telephone call. after that telephone call he started driving erratically. we were driving through the lawn, speeding along and then finally once he came to a stop, i jumped out of the car and ran away. >> he didn't seem like the type, our interaction with him was basic. it was like a five-minute ride, and i said you're not the shooter, are you? and he said no. and i said are you sure? and he kind of just said no. i'm just tired. i've been driving for seven hours. >> ryan young live in kalamazoo where delton will soon face a judge. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we moved here to the courthouse where the proceeding will happen. so many people are just feeling chilled by the idea that he was doing the uber rides inbetween the shootings. of course, no motive yet shared with us. we also want to focus on the victims in this case. obviously, so many people picked at random, shot.
7:18 am
we have eight victims and yet six of them that were killed. we'll show you the first person, baba hawthorn. mary jo niye, used to be an english teacher. people talking about the tragic loss here. also a 14-year-old girl who was shot and somehow survived. people are talking about not only trying to move forward, but they want to dig into his background to figure out exactly what happened. >> as soon as we identified the suspect, we also were able to put together his affiliation with weapons. that was already known. on the other hand, he didn't have any prior criminal history. there wasn't anything that would put him on the police's radar as someone who would be likely to do something like this.
7:19 am
>> reporter: that's something to point out, the fact he didn't have a criminal background. people in the neighborhood where he lived also said, look, he was a normal guy who was outside working on his car all the time. had a family. they never thought this would happen. he will face several serious charges, six murder charges. also when we went and shot two people in the parking lot at a car dealership, they were able to review that video and they knew they were looking for that chevy hhr. that was broadcast out to people. where he was captured? at this bar. there were people in the bar who were scared because they saw that car outside, and, obviously, as the story continues to develop, people want to know what set this man off. >> all right. young young reporting live from kalamazoo, michigan this morning. other top stories this morning. in a few hours a judge will hold a hearing on whether to dismiss a lawsuit brought by sandy hook families.

man 1: he just got fired. man 2: why? man 1: network breach. man 2: since when do they fire ceos for computer problems? man 1: they got in through a vendor. man 1: do you know how many vendors have access to our systems? man 2: no. man 1: hundreds, if you don't count the freelancers. man 2: should i be worried? man 1: you are the ceo. it's not just security. it's defense. bae systems. apple may have to fight more than just the fbi. some victims of the san bernardino terror attack are now expected to throw their support behind the government and call on apple to break into an iphone used by one of the killers.
7:26 am
cnn justice reporter, evan perez, and laurie segall join me with more. evan, i want to start with you. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we have some of the vinctim's families planning to file a legal brief to join the side of the government urging apple to help the fbi break into this terrorist cell phone. i spoke to a former federal judge who says he represents several of the victim's families. he says he expects to file this brief later this week. he have the first comments, however, on the record from the fbi director. he's been silent until now. he issued a blog post and he says the following. he says the san bernardino litigation isn't about trying to set a precedent or send any kind of message. it is about the victims and justice. 14 people were slaughtered and many more had their lives and bodies ruined. we own them a thorough and professional investigation under the law. the fbi says this is a case
7:27 am
that's narrowly written. it's not intended to danger the security of everyone's iphone. apple's point is, however, that you can already see state and local governments saying that they plan to use this precedent as a way for them to get their other phones unlocked as well. it won't stop with this phone, carol. >> apple is continuing to fight, right? the ceo, tim cook, e-mailed his employees this morning. >> his e-mail was titled thank you for your support. it addressed what a lot of people have been asking about this dispute. i want to read you a wit of what was in the letter. he said this case is about much more than a single phone or investigation. at stake is the data security of hundreds of millions of law-abiding people and setting a dangerous precedent that threatens everyone's civil liberties in. this isn't knew. we saw tim took put this out there in an open letter last week. we're seeing him hone in on this point. also part of this letter, he
7:28 am
suggested the fbi withdrawal the demand and form a commission with civil liberty experts. apple said they would get involved with law enforcement to have a conversation and work through some of the issues in a different way. one point i thought was interested because they also put out a public q and a that people can have some of their questions on this case answered. they spoke about it in this committee, essentially saying they could technically break into this phone if they wanted to by building out the new operating system. but what tim cook wrote is technically it's possible to do this, but the only way to guarantee such a powerful tool doesn't fall into the wrong hands is to never create it, which is something he's been saying before, something you're seeing them hone in on. you can see there's so much back and forth here, and something that's interesting to me is we're seeing silicon valley come forward, ceos offering tweets, the what's up app putting out messages. we haven't seen anyone but tim
7:29 am
cook come out in a big way and speak publicly. there's so much at stake in silicon valley. they're having closed door meetings about the precedent of this case could effect all major tech companies. >> absolutely. thanks to both of you. good morning. i'm carol costello. thank you so much for joining me. hillary clinton plotting out a new strategy to comfort voters with trust issues. she's addressing those issues head on. >> i understand that voters have questions. i'm going to do my very best to answer those questions. i think there's an underlying question that maybe is really in the back of people's minds, and that is, you know, is she in it for us or for herself. i think that's a question that people are trying to sort through. and i'm going to demonstrate that i've always been the same person fighting for the same values, fighting to make a real difference in people's lives.
7:30 am
long before i was ever in elected office, even before my husband was in the presidency. >> so how does clinton go about con sincing voters she's in their corner, not just fighting for personal glory? step one seems to be talk about we instead of me. >> we're all in this together. we need to do our part. we need you to be part of that exciting injuing journey we can tomorrow. >> so will the change in tone work? joining me to talk about this, jamaal simmons and sally cohen. welcome to both of you. >> good morning. >> sally, i'm just curious, because -- i'm just trying to think if the same argument would work with donald trump and if
7:31 am
people would think he was all in it for him and if they would fought him for that. >> there's no question hillary starts off with a deficit. you know, we can speculate as to why that is, but trump is an interesting example. apparently people think they trust him a lot pause he just says whatever he thinks even though most of the things he says are ridiculous, and it makes you think there's an inverse relationship between trust and credentials to actually be a thoughtful, leaderful president of the united states. you know, people should know that apparently according to surveys, the most trustworthy person in america is tom hanks. and the president or past president who we trust the most is jimmy carter. i don't really see democrats or republicans clamoring for him to be president. i think this is a really -- i mean, this is sort of a reality tv issue to be bringing up as
7:32 am
opposed to credentials for leadership. >> i think people really donald trump because they want something different from the establishment, right? it has nothing to do with anything else but everything to do with that. on the issue of trust, though, if you look at the exit, entrance polls from the nevada caucus. they show 12% of democratic caucus goers say hillary clinton is trustworthy. it seems to matter this time around. am i wrong? hillary clinton obviously is trying to do something about that. >> it's a tricky question, this question of trust. the question is do you trust someone to babysit your kids or do you trust someone to hold your wallet while you go to the bathroom? this thing about trust is different. i think when it comes to politicians, nobody trusts any politicians for the most part. among the other people running, do i trust you enough to go into a room and advocate on behalf of me and my family to watch out for me, even when i'm not watching. that's what hillary clinton is
7:33 am
trying to get to by talking about the elephant in the room. am i in this for you or me. i'm going to show you it's for you. i'm going to find people who have benefitted from her work for them maybe when he was in the senate or maybe when she was in arkansas. people who can get up and testify to the fact that they were in need and went to see her and she helped solve a problem for them. >> so is her use of we effective, sally? bernie sanders talks like that all the time. he never says i. >> yeah. i mean -- he doesn't have a trust issue, by the way. >> no, but, again, let's also bear in mind he's far newer to the american public. there's also optics to this. i wasn't being glib when i said there's a reality tv sort of dimension entering mesh politam politics. we like our politicians to be less like politicians and seem more real and authentic. whether that's what you actually want in the white house and in positions of leadership is an
7:34 am
interesting question. the other thing is let's be clear. we're doing it right now. this is a story. this is a narrative that has been built up about hillary clinton. largely by the right, absorbed by democrats and the mainstream, including her critics and repeated by the media. people believe trump tells it like it is because they keep hearing from people like us that trump tells it like it is. we have to be careful in not repeating the smears. let's focus on the issues and what's really at stake. >> carol, at the end of the day, no campaign is really about the candidate's past. it's always about the voter's future. and so hillary clinton, donald trump, any of those candidates that are running, rubio, they have to be speaking to aspirations of people, understand their anger. i think hillary clinton is getting better at showing she understands the anger people have and laying out a vision people can vote for. >> aspiration and vision, they're not cutting it this time around, sally. people are angry. they just want someone to kick the bums out.
7:35 am
>> yeah. i mean -- look, again, let's be clear of what that anger is. apparently 31% according to a new poll of trump supporters in south carolina want to ban gay people from entering the united states. if that's the sort of, quote, unquote, anger being marshalled in this election, i don't think any of us want any of it. we're frustrated that i think american people in general are frustrated that the recovery from the great recession has been going disproportionally to the top. i think people are frustrated at the direction of foreign policy and that we haven't fixed challenges in this country. but the question becomes what are you going to do about it? you need solutions. you need to not just stoke people's anger, make them more afraid. republicans know when voters are more afraid, they vote republican. jamaal is right. hillary clinton has to set out a vision and i think using the we language is thoroughly appropriate. where is she trying to take this
7:36 am
country. this isn't about me or my past. this is about a direction for the future and who can get us there. >> there are things out there, tangible, that independent voters and moderates think about like the e-mail controversy and even white water. that's hanging out there in the wind, right? >> i think that's -- that's already baked into the cake. i think people -- this is the benefit about being around for so long. clinton has been in the public eye since i was in college. all right? and so she really understands, and this is like the early 1990s. people already understand who she is. now what they want to know is we know who you are. we know you fight for people. are you fighting for me. she has to lay out how she's going to fight for them. i think marco rubio is telling the best story of any campaign that's out there. he's a son of a kid from humble beginnings, making his way to

it's a beautiful in your opinion. christy is here to tell us why this is happening this week. it wasn't so long ago we were talking about a recession. >> it started last week. there were a couple of really good days last week. last week the dwou dow cut the losses in half for the year. everyone is talking about a global recession, that's not guarantied. and, in fact, some of the underlying numbers are still pretty good. people are starting to buy stocks. oil prices are rising. oil prices up 7% right now. that is a big move. that moves all the energy companies, the banks are higher. anything that's basically natural resources, those stocks are higher here. i've been telling you for weeks oil and stocks are trading like this for some time. when you get a pop in oil, you get a pop in stocks. overall there's a feeling that maybe all those losses were overdone and there are some values in the american stock market again, frankly. think for the long haul.

. >> i think this year particularly because of donald trump and to some exten bernie sanders, it's captured their imagination. >> whatta do they attach to the election, what words? >> crazy. possibly unpredictable, given donald trump is doing so well. >> we get the gist. >> entertaining, definitely, for sure. >> a word we can all agree on. it has been entertaining at times. you actually left home to follow the candidates here in the united states. that seems a little crazy to me. >> yes. an interesting little project. so if i was in the united kingdom, normally, i would spend
7:51 am
the year staying up through the night, watching the coverage, watching the results shows, analyzing it, gambling on it, and so this time i thought no, i'll see the country, visit some primary states and take the pulse of the american people as i go and maybe write a book along the way as i go. >> interesting. i want to go to the beginning for a second. what is a political gambler? how do you make your money? >> well, i'm a professional gambler. i gamble on sports mostly, but politics is another big market. it's something i have a lot of knowledge in. i studied it at university a long time ago. it involves predicting elections and leadership contests, um, predicting other outcomes like, for example, more britain will stay in the european union or not, and in britain, the gambling industry is huge. it's like a 24/7 stock market

kind of situation. you know, you have websites for exchanges. you can bet on a candidate when you think they're going to rise and sell them when you think they're going to fall. >> how much money have you made or lost so far? >> so far i'd say i'm about 5,000, $7,000 up. i have a lot of big positions in the mix, though. so, for example, i have a lot of big position on marco rubio and a big position on ted cruz within the nomination. hopefully we'll get some more out of that. >> so that is what you're betting on. on the democratic said you're betting on who to win? >> hillary clinton. i'll be very surprised if she wasn't win. >> and on the republican said cruz or rubio? >> rubio right now. i backed rubio again last week before south carolina in anticipation that he'd finish second. and i think that now the race is

moving toward a two or three-runner race. rubio is -- does a lot better between the pairs. he's a lot more electable. >> we'll see if rubio makes you a rich man. paul, thank you so much for being with me this morning. >> thanks. >> a pivotal political event this thursday. all five candidates will join in a presidential debate thursday night, 8:30 p.m. eastern right here on cnn. i'll be right back. absolutely ageless® night cream aveeno® with active naturals® blackberry complex ... ... a whole new way to keep skin looking younger longer ... ... starting tonight. part of the new absolutely ageless collection from aveeno®
