9:32 am
polls. hand iing victories to socialis senator, bernie sanders and billionaire business man, donald trump are still -- so, will their outsider appeal endure as the presidential race moves south? let's ask "wall street journal" columnist, dan headinging and assistant editorial page editor, james freeman. dan, i think we saw in the debates thursday night, the democratic establishment hit back and hillary clinton wrap herself around president obama. let's listen. >> the criticism that we heard from is that right sanders about our president, i expect from republicans, i do not expect from someone running for the democratic nomination to succeed president obama. >> madam secretary, that is a low blow. >> and low blow. but effective or not? >> i think it's probably pretty effective considering where she's going. hk has well, among her problems, one of the big e is that people
9:33 am
say she's not likablef. she's saying if you don't like me, how do you like the president of the united states, the first african-american president who selected me to be his secretary of state, trusted me and now, voters were going down to south carolina and the south where the minority voters are presumably going to decide the election. >> they love president obama. >> they still love president obama and she is trying to isolate bernie sanders as he wants to be an outsider in the democratic party. let him be in south carolina and the southern states. >> clearly he's more authentic progressive than hillary clinton. a genuine man of the left. the voting block in the democratic party, had they moved that far left as bernie clearly is. >> well, the young people have and i think we should stop using the word authentic.
9:34 am
>> he's authentic, you don't think he believes what he's say something. >> i do, but that's not what we mean by that. bernie is think of him as a member of the hard left. no matter houf often he talks about socialists, great democracy. war, when he discusses vietnam and our great guilt, we have essentially ruined the universe in bernie's terms, until the president. >> but the question is is can they sell inside the democratic party to get him the nomination. >> well, i don't think so, but he will get a run for hillary's money from the audience of women and young men who don't know the history. they don't remember a character like this. from the early days, who speaks with a voice of something that you know, members of the oldest, oldest, hardest left understand and he's going to give them a
9:35 am
>> let's move on to trump.t that his appeal is different, seems to me, if you look at the exit polls. it's not about ideology so much, maybe on the issue of immigration is there, trade, but it's his appeal, attitude. his persona. i'm going to shake things up in washington. bring change. >> that's right. while he has the strongest support of noncollege educated blue collar worker, he's got broad support across all demographics. tas coalition of people who are fed up, ticked off, not just with the obama economy, but really the whole direction of the american government feel like they've been lied to politicians. >> i question his staying power as people look into that business record. once he goes beyond the development business that he inherited, he pretty much fails in the big venture, airline, casino, et cetera, so --
9:36 am
>> do people care about that though? >> that's the question. >> that's essentially what he's saying and i think here we are with very troubled market in the u.s. economy slowing. you might say this plays to his strength to focus on economic issue, but i think as people dig into dan noted this week, that 45% tariff, that tax he wants to put on a lot of goods we buy from overseas, they make that, the other candidates really did give him a pass. he was not attacked. they attacked each other and so, trump, i think emerged mostly unscathed. >> and the new donald trump. we've been reading about how his campaign decides, yeah, he was doing a positive message and this worked for him, so we're getting a dr. jekyll and mr. hyde candidate. i think they understood he was beginning to be a little bit too much and you couldn't sustain that persona through the entire
9:37 am
primary. >> but it's going to be fascinating to watch how he'll react to the attacks coming. there's no question they have to go after him, the other candidates. >> yes, they do and they will. >> when we come back, the remaining republican presidential hopefuls gear up for tonight's south carolina debate. ted cruz claims that it's now a two-man race between him and donald trump. but can the other republican candidates still break out? >> the only candidate who can beat donald trump is me. ♪
9:38 am
(cell phone rings) where are you? well the squirrels are back in the attic. mom? your dad won't call an exterminator... can i call you back, mom? he says it's personal this time... if you're a mom, you call at the worst time. it's what you do. if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. it's what you do. where are you? it's very loud there. are you taking a zumba class?
9:39 am
9:40 am
i wani did my ancestrydna and where i came from. and i couldn't wait to get my pie chart. the most shocking result was that i'm 26% native american. i had no idea. . . more about my native american heritage. it's opened up a whole new world for me. discover the story only your dna can tell. order your kit now at a high stakes debate tonight in south carolina for the republican presidential candidates. vying to be the alternative to donald trump. ohio governor, john kasich, finished a distant second to trump in new hampshire followed by cruz, bush and rubio. so, what will it taic to break
9:41 am
out out of the back at the gop race moves south? back with dan, james and mary also joins us. john kasich finished second, well clear of the others. also ran, if you will. but his campaign is now saying the one primary they must win is michigan, march 15th. that's a month from now. james, and we've got south carolina and the southern primaries between. now and then. what's kind of strategy is that? >> i think the conventional business witt dom is that he put his time in new hampshire and now, he's in trouble because he doesn't have the organization in the south. i think what the new hampshire second place finish did for him separating himself from rest of the moderates is now -- will cause people in the south to look at this guy.
9:42 am
obviously, he's got a big chance tonight in terms of the debate. i think he's going to have the chance in free media to make his case and i think what conservative are going to find is a pretty appeal guy, especially when you look at the alternatives, not just in terms of real achief chiefments on tax and budget reforms. he's talking about, he's got an oth mystic vision, yes, we've got problems, but we can solve them. >> cruz's strategy is based on running through the south and getting hard conservatives to vote for him. the kasich people i think would say but he cannot win in michigan or ohio and when we get there, i'm going to win. >> that's what they tell. let's go and listen to ted cruz and trump, what they're say about each other on the air. >> i got the trump action figure. >> what does he do?
9:43 am
>> he pretends to be a republican. >> too big to fail. >> i give money to -- anthony weiner. >> hey, hillary, i'll give you money to be my friend. >> come to my house, mr. trump. >> this is a lousy house. i'm going to take your house and when i'm done with it, park my limo there. >> what kind of man talks from both sides of his mouth on amnesty for illegals on national television and still denies it? he took more than a million dollars in sweetheart loans from wall street banks and fails to disclose as required by law. who runs a campaign accused of dirty tricks to try to -- towards ben carson with false rumors. ted cruz, the worst kind of washington insider. >> well, those are uplifting messages. >> yeah. >> i think this shows that cruz and trump feel that they have to go after each other. and is that going to create an
9:44 am
opening for one of the others, if not kasich, then maybe bush or rubio. >> it could. really, to take trump down, you have to go after his ideas and what they mean and you a little bit of that in that immeant domain ad, although i don't think that's a particularly effective ad and you have to talk about the unpredictability of trump. what would he do if he were commander in chief. would he lose 40 states, democrats retake the senate. that's what would recreate the opening. trump has taken a lot of winds out of cruz's sail and i think that's why you're seeing him go after him. >> harry make as good point. yu can't say trump is not a conservative or republican. people know he's not really a conservative. but you have to show that, almost have to go another level down if you have a trade war. what does it mean if he is the commander in chief and cozies up to putin? >> i think that's what the other candidates in the debate are
9:45 am
going to have to do to sort of start pulling back from his support. i will say about those ads, paul, that that is a taste of what the democrats are going to dump on either ted cruz or donald trump if they are the nominee from start to finish. the two candidates most vulnerable to that kind of negative advertising. >> do you think rubio can make a comeback? >> i don't really see it happening for him because i think what that debate revealed is a legitimate problem, that he has trouble going beyond the talking points and ik especially in this economy, we're in, he may have particular trouble because he's studied on foreign policy. >> i think i disagree because i think he has a chance in south carolina because of his foreign policy focus. and i think he's going to hit ted cruz very hard on his antidefense bill vote, which is a very big issue in south carolina. and i think rubio might come back. elsewhere in the country are going to give these guys another look.
9:46 am
>> i think it's hard to argue you have ek appearance when you just sat on a committee. that was the attack line that rubio came out with this week. >> look, i like rubio personally. but i think he has to have a perfect debate. if anything, the new hampshire exit poll shows that votered are paying a lot of attention to these debate. >> there's a debate within a debate with bush and rubio, they are competing for the third slot at least in south carolina. >> still ahead, hillary clinton facing an uphill battle for one group of voters in particular. so, why are young women flocking to bernie sanders?

you have to help. hillary clinton will always be there for you and just remember, there's a special place in hell for women who don't help each other. that was former secretary of state, madeleine albright's message to young women voters in new hampshire last week. but apparently they didn't take it to heart. exit polls in the granite state show clinton losing to bernie sanders by wide margins with women under the age of 45. here's how mrs. clinton responded to the new hampshire outcome in thursday night's debate. >> i have spent my entire adult life working towards making sure that women are empowered to make their own choices, even if that choice is to not vote for me. >> we're back with dorothy and mary and wall street editorial writer, kate batchholder also joins us. so, kate, why isn't this -- there's a generation gap among women voters in the democratic party. why isn't the first woman
9:51 am
president pitch working with young voters? >> okay, well, i think two things are going on here. the first is that when hillary graduated from yale law school, her class was about 10% women. today that number is almost even at 45%. young women have just lived a different experience and the facts on the ground have changed. and so i think they see that hillary is not their only option to represent them. but the second thing is that the threat of internal damnation is just not a -- >> you don't think that carries you over the finish line? >> i think that's pretty insulting. >> how much is it that younger women are just further to the left than the older generation and the democratic party, and therefore, bernie is more sim patco with their idealism? >> i think that's also at play and there's also a certain artificialness about hillary, and people think she's not necessarily sincere about supporting feminists. there's all this background with her. >> and dorothy, madeleine albright, do you think that pitch is better than kate
9:52 am
apparently thinks it is? >> well, it is. poor mrs. albright did not count on the humorness of our political age. >> so you think that was a -- >> she meant it in spirit, but i think at another time, you could have gotten away without that, much, much more poisonous and in a genuine way was gloria steinem who was very serious when she said, you're going where the boys are -- >> basically, young women want to -- because, young men like bernie, they want to get dates. that was her message. >> that's the name of a movie. "where the boys are." and to be so completely out of tune with the age. and she meant it. this is a grinding ideology that belongs exactly however, not in mrs. clinton's camp, as much as bernie's camp. and -- >> well, i also think female voters are affected by the same thing that male voters are, insofar as they don't find hillary trustworthy, as has been
9:53 am
mentioned, and she's also running a pretty confused campaign. she wants to be associated with president obama. yet she can't be as progressive as bernie. she tends to be as progressive. so, look, she's just, she's not a strong candidate. >> but mary, if you're like me and you're emily's list e-mail list, i don't know how i got on it, but i am, and this is the fund-raising arm of the feminist movement, and they're very powerful and very influential in the democratic party. they're all in for hillary clinton, okay? she is their candidate. and i think that represents sort of the institutional wing of the feminist movement. and so, they're bringing this to bare. done you think, in the end, that's going to help hillary clinton, particularly, as we move on to these other states? >> absolutely. that's why it's so funny, when commentators talk about the establishment, the republican establishment, they really should be talking about the democratic establishment, which is fully behind hillary clinton. >> there is another element, really, in this. if mrs. clinton were not running against bernie sanders, with all of that apocalyptic server about
9:54 am
the future of our country and what he will give everybody, she would not be in this position. what's lacking in this current generation of women is simply the education that would have come from older age, when you would have recognized that bernie sanders is this -- >> i think that means you, kate. >> i disagree. i think the institutional federal movement will turn out for hillary. but it was gloria steinem that thought so little of them that they couldn't choose their own presidential candidate. >> what about this point about education? do they really think they just don't understand what bernie represented, represents in the past? >> i think that's absolutely part of sit, but i don't think you can overlook hillary's lack of appeal to them. and for all the reasons we've discussed. i don't think so. >> well, they also need to find a job. the obama years have been terrible, for women. and hillary clinton is associated with the obama years.
9:55 am
bernie is running, really, a more progressive campaign. >> that's for sure. >> that says, i'm going to go out and get you a job. and repeated that this week in the debate. >> lots of fun, thank you all very much. we have to take one more break. when we come back, our hits and misses of the week. you've finally earned enough reward miles on your airline credit card. now you just book a seat, right? not quite. sometimes those seats are out of reach, costing an outrageous number of miles. it's time to switch... to 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 and use your miles to cover the cost. now that's more like it. what's in your wallet?
9:56 am
9:57 am
9:58 am
. time now for our hits and misses of the week. congratulations to the denver broncos. start us off, james. >> it doesn't get any better than that. almost as good is -- this is a hit to the politicians of both parties in washington, believe it or not, who are about to enact a permanent extension of the internet tax freedom act. so this keeps taxes off your e-mail, internet access services, great for the economy, great for america. the white house says president obama is going to sign it. it seems miraculous, but here it is. >> all right, congratulations for that. you've been fighting for that for a long time. kate? >> this is a hit for government accountability this week.
9:59 am
house republicans have released a report showing that the epa could have prevented the gold king mine blowout that infected the animas river with neon sludge last august. the epa has been hoping that everyone will forget about this and move on since the river isn't yellow anymore, but house republicans have kept on figuring out what happened there and that's a win for taxpayers. >> dan? >> i'm going to give a hit to carly fiorina, who was left the campaign and mrs. fiorina never capitalized on her early surge or strong debate performances. and i think that basically shows how professionalized presidential politics has become. nonetheless, carly fiorina was a very forceful advocate for conservative ideals and an amazing critic not only of hillary clinton, but donald trump as well, and i hope in the future there are more carly fiorinas running for the republican presidential nomination. >> plausible vice presidential candidate for the ticket? >> perhaps if they go in that
10:00 am
direction. i think it's more likely they'll go for a regional candidate, either florida or the midwest. >> and if you have your own hit or midwest, tweet it to us. that's it for this week's show. thanks to my panel, thanks to all of you for watching. see you right next week. the state department releases hundreds more of hillary clinton's e-mails. we reveal what it means to the fbi investigation into a private e-mail server and the impact on her run for the white house. and then there were six. the remaining gop candidates for the president prepare for a big debate tonight in south carolina. we go on the ground in the palmetto state and ask our political panel to break down what's at stake. >> and fox news reveals a brand-new scandal at the va, this time over prescription d g drugs at the cincinnati medical center. we'll tell you what it's all about.
