lauren: 2020 democrats are fighting for votes in iowa as a new frontrunner has emerged. cheryl: aishah hasnie joins us with the who's the one to watch right now and big surprise on this new poll. good morning. >> reporter: lauren, cheryl, we're talking about elizabeth warren. she is leading the pack now with four months left before the iowa caucus. a new poll shows warren at 22%, beating former vp joe biden who is at 20%. the massachusetts senator not letting this get to her head.
>> i don't do polls. we are still months away from the iowa caucuses and the first primary election. >> reporter: i don't do polls, she says. but according to the same poll, the new warren fans are apparently old bernie sanders supporters and although thousands did pack his rally on sunday, sanders is now trailing at 11%. meantime, cory booker worried about a different kind of number. his campaign recently sent out a memo to staff warning that if they don't raise $2 million by the next funding deadline, booker might have to quit. >> if we cannot raise $1.7 million in the last 10 days of this quarter, in the last 10 days of september, then cory's going to have to make tough decisions and i'm going to have to make tough decisions about his future in this race. >> reporter: about four months left until the iowa caucus, all the candidates trying to squeeze as much time as they possibly can in that state. pete buttigieg and bernie
sanders have events in iowa today. everyone, even andrew yang, with just 2% of caucus goers still pretty positive they've got a chance at this thing. >.cheryl: it's very early, to your point. thank you for that live report. let's get more on this and bring in siri kim and howard franklin. good morning. >> good morning. >> good morning. cheryl: here's the thing, howard. this is kind of an interesting turn that we're seeing among iowa caucus goers but only one in five of those iowa caucus doers say their -- goers say their mind is made up. the emergence of elizabeth warren is a pretty big surprise we're getting here. >> yeah, i think somewhat of a surprise. i think it's proof positive that campaigns do still matter. senator warren was one of the first to make significant contributions or investments in the state of iowa. i think it's proof positive that slow and steady wins the race. i think she's been at this for a
long time. her message about not holding big, high dollar fundraisers has resonated well in iowa and she's had a lot of activity there. cheryl: we still see among likely democratic voters and this is on more of a national basis, that electability, someone that can beat president trump is key. now we're seeing a progressive candidate which some say is not going to be electable against president trump, especially when they've got medicare for all and other plans that frankly are going to be unattainable and can't be paid for. >> well, i absolutely agree that electability is a real concern and she will not be elected president but her rise in the poll is important for two reasons. one, since 1974, iowa has only correctly predicted the democratic nominee 43% of the time. however, since 2004, they have 100% accuracy in picking the democratic nominee.
john carey in 2004, barack obama in 2008, and hillary clinton in 2016. as relates to the issues, president trump showed in 2016 and 2020 people don't care about electability. people don't care about character. people don't care about any of those tertiary issues that other presidents have won. they care about issues. cheryl: just to correct you, they say this is among likely democratic voters on this election cycle and they do care about electability. they're saying that over and over, by overwhelming percentage points. >> i would bifurcate that and say the electability concern is about the issues and the issues that the democratic party seems to care about is the far left leaning issues of medicare for all, of essentially a $16 trillion deficit. these are the issues they care about. cheryl: howard, respond to that then. >> it's the first time i've been on television an a republican said the issues the democrats care about are defeating or
reeling in the deficit. i think that's great that we're giving the democrats the responsibility of reeling in the deficit after this president. i think they care about the issues of healthcare. electability is a smoke screen. cheryl: i want to move on to something else. several democratic candidates are joining the picket lines, biden, sanders, warren was on the picket line yesterday, this is the second week of the gm strike. they're targeting detroit and michigan. president trump won michigan and those 16 electoral votes in 2016. is he in trouble in michigan? >> if you're asking he me, i think he is absolutely in trouble in michigan. i'm a native detroiter, grew up in michigan. my parents are members of uaw. i want to say i saw a report over the weekend that they are softening their expectations, the trump campaign, that is, for michigan. i think the fact that they've
not brought home the bacon for the uaw workers -- cheryl: i will push back. unemployment is at record lows in michigan. final word? >> 800,000 manufacturing jobs left the united states through a democratic president and the reason why we need usmca is we will bring back those jobs to the united states. president bill clinton did that with nafta. we need those jobs back in the united states. cheryl: thank you so much for your time. lauren: coming up, after a whirl wind week for wework and the ceo, adam newman, reports now that the company is looking to make pretty big changes. and starbucks is known for instagram friendly drinks. now it's making waves with seriously strange flavors. you won't believe what the company has cooked up, coming up on "fbn: a.m." ♪ oh, i'm a rebel just for kicks now. ♪ i've been feeling it since 1966 now. ♪ might have had your fill,

cheryl: more trouble for wework. a group of board members of the company reportedly want the ceo, adam newman, to step down. the wall street journal is reporting the group which includes officials from soft bank are going to ask him to step down as soon as this week, soft bank a major investor in this company, as you know. the latest development is after wework was forced to postpone the initial public offering last week. there are new questions about newman's possible use of drugs on the job. again, he's the ceo of that company. lauren: are his days numbered as ceo? rebecca walther joins us now. rebecca, this is a case study of a ceo who kind of flew too close
the sun, if you will, and it shows that what works in the private markets, in that bottleneck growth, doesn't always work when you're about to enter the public market, does it? >> that's exactly right, lauren. it's a little different. you're more under scrutiny and having an article published in the wall street journal about drug use the week of the ipo is not a good sign. lauren: so what does this mean? we've already seen its valuation from $47 billion to potentially $10 billion. does he lose his job as ceo? >> well, he has voting rights. he controls. he can fire the entire board. there are a lot of soft bank directors on the board and they still need soft bank to pump in money, at least through next year, so there' got to there's e situation where this gets resolved. he needs soft bank at the table, agreeing with what's happening. they need that cash infusion. they're not going to be go further without them.
so this has got to get resolved this week, lauren. lauren: let's talk about the broader market that all of this is happening in. we're talking recession on one hand and record highs on the other hand. so how do you jive the two? what exactly is going on with the market? >> it's such a weird diet cot my to be in -- dichotomy. we still have strong economic fundamentals. we shouldn't be talking recession. the inverted yield curve situation happening earlier basically created press around looming recession, global slowdown, all these things. investors are getting mixed messages. i keep hearing in the media there's a recession coming and pure economic cycles alone, lauren, we're due. ioverdue.fundamentals are so goe same time. so that's the problem. lauren: i know the u.s. economy is strong. we all know that. we got fresh data, seven-year lows for manufacturing coming out of the eurozone. that affected our futures
trading here. if that weakness spills over to the european services sector and spills over to the u.s., how long can we stay immune? >> absolutely. i mean, look at germany. they're struggling with europe. that's their entire economy, yes. if europe and china have a global slowdown, will it come to us? of course. we're an interconnected global society. we're not going to be the outlier forever. yet, still, our fundamentals are the best and that means investment will come to our shores. that will also boost us and prompt us to stay higher. i don't think that recession is coming anytime soon. we still have good economic fundamentals. lauren: thank you for the optimism this morning. we needed some. cheryl: that economic data came out of europe, it hit our futures this morning on your monday. a little bit of pressure to show you right now. we'll see if it happens throughout the day. dow down 47, s&p down 3 and-a-half, nasdaq down 4 and three quarters.

lauren: today, president trump is in new york to meet with world leaders at the united nations. but overshadowing this is a major new controversy about a phone call the president made to the president of ukraine. president trump confirming that he did discuss joe biden with ukraine's president during the july phone call, a conversation that democrats say is another
reason for impeachment. joining us now, constitutional law attorney and trump 2020 advisor, jenna ellis reeves. jenna, good morning. i feel like here we go again. we have another accusations from an unidentified source that could have been hearsay and democrats pouncing on it. what gives? >> yeah, well, you know, this is again just the democrats seeing that the russia witch hunt and all of that is kind of dying down and they've milked all the mueller report for all its political worth so they're turning to a different topic. what's sofas nateing is -- so fascinating is they're willing to sacrifice joe biden for it. they're calling into question what happened with his corruption. if we look at the facts. there is a basis and a really good legal basis here to call for an investigation about presidential candidate, joe biden. i think this really shows that the democrats are not putting their weight behind biden and i don't think he's going to end up on top as the democratic nominee.
but as far as the impeachment calls, this is, again, just the democrats trying to justify the fact that they just want to hate president trump, they want him out of office. but they have no sufficient constitutional basis for that. this is simply political. and they are trying to undermine the will of the american people and just remove him from office. they don't have a constitutional basis. lauren: if i heard you correctly, you think this scandal with joe biden potentially at the top of it, republicans are calling for an investigation into his involvement, of course, with his son's dealing with that company and the like, you think this takes down joe biden? >> i do eventually. the facts are coming out and i think that with this intensity on joe biden, a number of reporters and commentators are saying this is not looking good for joe biden and we've seen his weakness and he was clearly dominated by elizabeth warren in the last debate and the media seems to -- the mainstream media seems to be putting their weight
kind of behind her. i think this really does and this is not looking good for him. he has a sound bite from i think last year talking about this and he's going to to have to answer these questions and not just push this under the rug. lauren: what about the look for the intelligence community and their ability to apolitical. >> i think they're goes to follow the rule of law. for bill barr, he certainly proved that and in terms of the intelligence community, again, this is an anonymous source, we don't he know any of the facts and this really shows the difference between democrats and republicans. if you're a democrat, you get away with literally anything. if you're a republican after your name, then you're guilty until proven innocent. that's a double standard that needs to stop. lauren: jenna, thank you. cheryl: apple getting a break from the recent tariffs imposed on china. the trump administration gave the company a waiver on 10 of its products, most of which are focusing on the mac pro. so this is good news if you love
your mac pro. this is good news for makers of the devices. and this could be bad news for a lot of people. an estimated 600 p thousand travelers are stranded right now after british tour operator thomas cook collapsed last night. neil wilson is here, chief market analyst. i know the u.k. government is looking to bail out -- folks wanted them to bail out the company. they said no. 600,000 people around the world are currently on these vacations. 160,000 of those are u.k. residents. how bad is this right now? >> good morning. it's as bad as it gets. and as bad as we've seen it could happen, the british government in the end decided it wasn't worth it. for the holiday makers that have been affected, it's really terrible. there are plans in place, if you
booked your holiday from the united kingdom, then you will be repatriated. there are lots of new charter flights being put on and they're trying to move passengers to any available slots. but there will be inevitably a lot of people out for a day or two longer than they intended. everyone looking forward has to cancel their trips. it's as bad as it gets for thomas cook and the end of a very long history. cheryl: your government is prioritizing u.k. residents but what about the rest of these people that are around the world? we don't know how many americans are affected. it could be a lot. the other thing that's going on, it's actually here in this country, is u.n. general assembly, boris johnson teams to be trying to tamper down any expectations that there's going to be some big breakthrough between the eu and the u.k. what do you think his appearance is going to look like this week
and how likely is it we're going to get this hard brea -- hard b? >> i think the chances of a deal are still pretty slim. from what we can see, the two slides are a long way off. there's simply the intractable problem of the irish backstop and even if they can come up with some sort of deal, it does look like between the government and the eu, it does look like parliament simply wouldn't be prepared to back a deal that had boris johnson's name on it and i think that's really the key here. i see no chance of a deal a higher chance of a no deal exit. cheryl: which obviously for us, we're looking at the trade relationship with the u.k. and it's going to be pretty intense for all of us around the world, really. neil, thank you very much for being here this morning. >> thank you. lauren: the new york stock exchange launching the long delayed market for bitcoin users. cheryl: tracee carrasco has the details. tracee: trading in bitcoin
