2:04 am
sentences. i would say the other winner would have been as always as usual rubio. i would have again included cruz in that because of his fluency and his strength. >> rubio is in. rubio continues to be the candidate other than cruz and trump that was in the discussion in the credible discussion. if you are doing in order you give it to cruz narrowly on point then you have truch and then you have rubio. >> a lot of the candidates seem to be in the top tier. many analysts say this is carson and kasich last stand. heather? >> there was no shortage of sparks sfliei flying on the sta. what about the issues in sasha burg is democratic strat list and ron meyer is editor of "red alert politics." it was a long night. we all stayed up listening to it. we want to talk about the issues. first of all the fight against isis.
2:05 am
the winner and loser in terms of the argument in terms of how they handled it? >> i would say winner would be ted cruz right here. he took it from the get go. he ignored the first question he got about the economy and took it to the image of the sailors. of course he kind of made up a lot of what happened there and neglected to mention necessarily returned unharmed. if a ship was in our waters what he would have done is much worse. he took it and from that point on he owned it. >> the president did not even mention it in the state of the union address. that's what happened. ron, what do you think? >> i agree with that assessment of cruise. he came off strong. i think overall christie won on national security. he come off, probably as the most presidential. the republican field whether or not i agree with it wants someone who is tough, wants
2:06 am
someone who is like commander-in-chief. christie can take the punches and deliver. >> yeah, and he does have that experience. speaking of what the voters are looking for. the latest fox news poll talks about what they are concerned about. number one in terms of the percentages, national security. 43 percent followed by economic issues, immigration, social issues. immigrati immigration in third at 15 percent. it was caulked about a lot. who do you think won that debate. >> in terms of winning chris christie echoing your points about his ability to seem tough but he doesn't seem crazy. it is sort of a block he already has. there's a lot of people who think his no muslims at all ever is a little strong.
2:07 am
he was able to look tough through immigration but also be a little bit more realistic. >> ron, your winner. >> pofor better or worse it was donald trump from an analytical perspective. he controlled that debate. the only reason people are talking about immigration is donald trump. whether or not it is the party is a totally different question. he is controlling that debate. cruz and rubio and jeb started shooting at each other. jeb called it back ventures which made them look incredibly small but looked jeb look petty. they made trump look good because he was the one controlling the discussion. >> we are going to talk about overall winner and loser. >> i am going with ted cruz. he took a lot of hits don't get me wrong and he lost a good opportunity. tough to hit on new york values but lost the opportunity to say
2:08 am
that what he meant was trump is not really conservative and cruz cares about iowa. >> it did seem like he did spend the most amount of time responding and jumping in on topics. what about you? >> i would say definitely ben carson. >> he's a nice guy, a great neurosurgeon but not presidential. >> he is going to stay the frontrunner in the polls. he came off strong. in the battle between trump and cruz there is a big difference. when he had the new york line when he went after new yorkers i think even among iowans it
2:09 am
resinated. the only line of carson i remember is you finally came decided to wake up? >> it was funny. he doesn't seem like he could be the next commander-in-chief. i think rand paul is also a loser last night by not being there. here's the thing we also lost by not having him there. >> hold your thoughts. what else is going on? >> donald trump has dominated the discussion in the republican race and lass nate was no different with trump leading that conversation on facebook. our fox and friends weekend co host clayton morris is here with social reaction. high there, clayton. what are folks saying on-line? >> the most tweeted about moment didn't have to do with donald trump or ted cruz it had to do with chris christie and the new jersey tick your rear end moment
2:10 am
was the hot topic. >> he's tough. we want somebody that is tough and will go in there and knock somebody's lights out. >> not that tough. >> that's the focus group from last night. we don't have the correct sound bite from that. but last night chris christie talked about the president's policies and said we need a president that will go in there and we are going to kick your rear end out of the white house. that was one of the top trending moments last night. the top trending comments last night on twitter during the debate. here was the top moment. donald trump wants to get dominating social media with 38 percent. this has been a clear sign donald trump dominating social media but ted cruz is quite close to donald trump on the twitter debates this time than the last debate. let's take a look at some of the other debates last night on social media. here are the followers donald trump picking up the most twitter followers adding

2:13 am
marco rubio thinks it's unfair to criticize him for missing votes. "but i am going to miss votes, i'm running for president." but he's been missing votes for a long time.
2:14 am
"one third of all of his missed votes in 2015 were missed before he announced he was running for president." over the last three years, marco rubio has missed more votes... than any other senator. washington politician marco rubio. doesn't show up for work, but wants a promotion? right to rise usa is responsible for the content of this message. covernow there's a gorgeous easy as... otrublend face. three. for each of us one: new trublend primer

under obama. we have the lowest percentage of people working today since 1977. median wages have stagnated. >> is that true or is that false in>> it is true. you are right this is something we hear a lot on the campaign trail from republicans. democrats tend to push back but the truth of the matter is a lot of people have exited the work force and resuas a result we ha0 percent of americans working as we did in the 70's. >> even the "washington post" agrees with that assessment. the work participation rate is 66 percent. >> argument over ted cruz's tax plan rubio calling it a value added tax. >> it is called a value added tax. it is a tax you find in many companies in europe where businesses will have to pay a tax both on the money they make but they have to pay taxes on
2:17 am
the money they pay their employees. >> the business tax in my proposal is not a vat. >> a vat can be a bad word in republican politics. is it true or false? is it a value added tax? >> it is a value added at that ks. mark yo rubio is completely right here. you are correct a value added tax can be a 4 letter word in republican circles something you don't want to say on the campaign trail which is why ted cruz is trying to use other terms to explain what this is. when you get down to the pure economics and most economists agree it is a value added tax. >> would increase corporate income tax rate. >> rubio calls out christie on organizations he has allege elderly funded. christie says rubio's claims about planned parenthood are untrue. is that true or false? >> chris christie wrote a check to planned parenthood. >> i never wrote a check to planned parenthood. >> it actually true that chris
2:18 am
christie -- it is actually false chris christie did not donate to planned parenthood. we have to go back to 1994 to see a quote from chris chritie g he donated on his own. he said he was misquoted. we may never know the full truth on that one. >> unless we see the check itself. rebecca berg, thank you so much from washington. the time is 18 minutes after the hour taking on isis. >> i am very angry, because our country is being run morley. >> our military is a disaster. >> first thing we have to strengthen our alliances around the world. >> strategy would work best to keep us safe. a military experts weighs in.

2:23 am
are the best from governor krs tee. he understood what a president will have to do to rebuild the confidence of our allies. we can't do this fight against isis and other things without isis. he had the best ideas. >> let's listen to one of the things he had to say. >> there's another thing the next president will have to do to clean up this mess is strengthen our alliances around the world. the best way to do that count on our allies again and count on their word. >> mari in terms of our allies d who are our allies, russia, iran, saudi arabia? who would you include? >> we have to define who we want
2:24 am
to be with. that's part of the problem we don't know who we can depend upon because they can't depend upon us. we look at the saudis as part of the fight against isis. we look at the russians trying to help us on stuff. i think we have to redefine one thing first our strategy. what do we wish to do in the world then we can find out who we can partner with to do that. i think governor crist tee has an idea of where to start. >> what about the questions about iran and the sailors that were taken in and held for a period of time. how did the candidates handle that? >> i appreciate senator cruz's jumping right in and talking about using severe penalties against the iranians but it's not realistic. >> we are lad by embarrassed by how the iranians handled the
2:25 am
capture of our soldiers. we have to figure out a way to go about this. something less than military force we have to put on the stab table to figure out what is going back. >> it is specifically disgraceful on that front. >> it was absolutely. >> thank you for having me. >> it is 25 minutes after the hour. the top tier candidates are taking aim at hillary clinton. take a look. >> someone who lies to the families of the four victims of benghazi can never be president of the united states. >> we will tell you how the democratic frontrunners responded on twitter and u.s. sailors humiliated by iran. the candidates promising this would never happen under their
2:26 am
leadership. i know how it is. you're all set to book a flight using your airline credit card miles. and surprise! those seats sometimes cost a ridiculous number of miles, making it really hard to book the flight you want. luckily, there's a better way... with the capital one venture card. with venture, you'll earn unlimited double miles on every purchase, every day. and when you're ready to travel, just book the flight you want, on any airline, then use your miles to cover the cost. now you're getting somewhere. what's in your wallet?

2:30 am

2:31 am
values in new york city are socially liberal or pro abortion or pro gay marriage focused around money and the media. >> when the world trade center came down i saw a place no place could have handled more beautifully than new york. we rebuilt downtown manhattan and everybody in the world watched and everybody in the world loved new york and loved new yorkers. i have to tell you that was a very insulting statement that ted made. >> cruz was getting it from all sides last night. a cleary flexion of his popularity in the polls including this exchange with marco rubio. >> you don't get to say we need to secure the borders and at the same time give barack obama more authority to allow middle eastern refugees coming in. >> ted cruz you used to say you were for doubling the amount of
2:32 am
green cards now you say you are against it. you used to say 500 increase in number of guest workers. you used to support legalizing people who were thier illegally. now you say you are against it. you used to say you were in favor of birth right citizenship, now you say you are against it. >> jeb bush still hoping the route to victory in the caucuses and in the new hampshire primary went through donald trump what canning the donald for his proposal from letting all muslims enter the country. >> you don't have to have refugees come into the con rebut all muslims? you can't make rash statements and expect the rest of the world to respond as though, well, it is just politics. >> i want security. i am tired of seeing what's going on between the border and people flow over. people come in, they live, they shoot. i want security for this country. >> it is not all war between them. at least not yet.

ward in iowa. donald trump has a lot of excitement. he did win this debate. we will see what the poll numbers look like. he says he had 10,000 students it means he will get third or fourth which will shock things. he wasn't at the debate if he does that he could win this race. >> you pick cruise as a winner in iowa. trump winning the real clear politics at this point. cruz close to 26 points, 6 percent i believe. do you agree? >> i am going to go k cruz. the electorate in iowa is a very different one. it is not angry about immigration and multiculturalism like trump supporters are as much as it is much more evangelical and white and old. cruz appeals to them. they feel like they have been
2:35 am
taken advantage of. they have been 30 percent overall election vote for republicans but they lost with mccain and romney. cruz says if we are conservative then we will win the white house. that appeals to iowa. >> it is close in terms of the polling at this point. what about new hampshire? how do you think they will fare? >> it would take something improbable for him not to win. the reason he's in second place whoever gets second place in new hampshire will get all of the establishment money. they are looking for someone to invest in. they have all been in second place. >> it is interesting how it changes. trump leading by 30 percent of the average rubio in second. way down 13.2 percent. >> less than half. >> less than half. who do you think will win?

2:50 am
about that for a long time. republicans. i think conceptually it is a good idea. you are right once you put yourself into a straight jacket you are going to be potentially in trouble later on. i think it is something that people should be potentially in trouble later. i think it's something people should be working toward to reduce the deficit. >> cruz and a valuated tax bill. they won't call it that. >> right. >> that's not the kind of thing that goes over well with conservatives. >> he was going after cruz in many areas. including that rubio was calling it a value-added tax. they said no, this is a business tax and it's flat. going to make it easier for planning. >> correct me if i'm wrong, it would tax products along the way of manufacturing which is what it is. >> yeah. i think that rubio made a valuable point, but if you say it hurt consumers, especially what he gave seniors, same thing with lower income people. in europe, they are hit by value
