7:05 am
we want to get back to rob with that. >> hey, lara, multifaceted storm as you mentioned will tap moisture from the gulf of mexico das a decent amount of energy. it packed a punch when it hit the west coast and has a lot of jet s stream juice with it. enhanced rk of thunderstorms that could produce severe weather including tornadoes across louisiana, mississippi and alabama and now we have a newly issued blizzard watch for new york city, northeast new jersey and long island for blowing and drifting snow as this thing makes its w -- widespspread winter storm watches. what we expect to see, the worst day saturday and saturdaynight, we're thinking potentially up to two feet or more especially west of d.c. but there's a sharp cutoff as you go up to philadelia. probably see about a foot and new york city getting a little dicey bethe wind is going to be blowing and coastal floodin big waves and it doesn't have t benowing a lot, george and lara, to get blizzard conditions, that winds a pretty good b bit so it will be a nasty, nasty weekend.

7:09 am
where they have to look at him and wonder, do you know what we go through? >> reporter: but when trump took the mike he said his target on the democrats who w wt to be bernrnie sanders. >> can you imagine this gu a we. no, no? he's beating hillary clinton. can you believe this? this guy, he's a whack job. i really want to run against her but i reay would like to run against bernie sanders too. >> reporter: and the trump campaign says theare working hard to win the hawkeye state. they say for them second place is not a victory. they want first place here in iowa. george. >> okay, tom, thanks very much. let's talk to jon karl about all this. closing in on those first votes in iowa, jon, everyingle day counts and trump did win the news cycle wh that sarah palin endorsement but what abo the argument that president obama is to blame for track palin assaulting his girlfriend. >> reporter: in politics that's
7:10 am
what we call a stretch. i've see barack obama blamed for a lot of things. i never imagined when the story brokthat sarah palin's son was chged with domestic violence thatat somehowhis would be obama's fault. but, look, you know, palin brings a lot of baggage but there is no question this endorsement is still a very big deal for trump and you can see that in the reactions from the other candidates. they have all came out in response and praised sarah palin, even jeb bush yesterday sarah palin because sheas conservatives in iowa. >> talk about things you never imagined. the former senate majority leader robert dole saying that donald trump would be a better president than aepublican senator, ted cruz. you've got the establishment seemg to choose trump over cruz right now. is that a problem for cruz or an opportunity? >> reporter: well, look, the establishment attacks have not hurt at all throughout this campaign. t i think this may be different because it helpsps trump ma an argument that he is more electable. th's been the bgest
7:11 am
or not he can win in november. so if you have establishment figures like the governor of iowa, le bob dole saying that he is more electable than ted cruz i think that actually helps trump and hurts cruz. >> one of the other dynamicics you're seeing with all this focus on trump and cruz all the other candidates getting drowned out. >> reporter: ablutely. marco rubio, should be a great opportunity for him, the two front-runners are beating i out but he can't get a word in edgewise. >> thanks very much. i'll have an exclusive interview with ted cruz in new hampshire tomorrow. we'l'll turno wall street and that roller coaster, stocks falling in asia this morning after another wild day here. the dow tumbling 250 points. this as oil prices are also plunging to the lowest level in more than a dede. abc's rebecca jarvis is here to explain it all to us and good mornin to you, rebecca. >> reporter: gd morning, lara. stocks are now dowown this year almost 10%. we know that when stocks fall in china, they fall here and this

7:13 am

7:36 am
