you can't trust them. >> reporter: trump referred to marco rubio. >> there is something wrong with marco. there is something with him. he is sweating. >> reporter: in the past, trump has retweeted support of messages from white supremacists and even retweeted a quote over the weekend from world war ii dictator mussolini. he hesitated when asked about ku klux klan. >> i know nothing about david i don't know what group you're talking about. you wouldn't want me to condemn a group i know nothing about. >> trump knew enough about duke to say this friday in ft. worth. >> i didn't know he endorsed me. david duke endorsed me? okay. i disavow, okay. >> reporter: marco rubio called trump dangerous to the gop.
party with a noom minee who refuses to condemn the ku klux klan? >> donald trump refused to disassociate himself and condemn white supremacist. every day, it's another thing. >> reporter: ted cruz took to the fight against rubio and comprehensive immigration reform. >> thank you, major. in the democratic race, hillary clinton carries the momentum. the latest tracker battleground poll shows clinton big lead in georgia, virginia and texas. clinton scored a decisive win this weekend. she beat bernie sanders by a landslide in saturday's south
clinton will hold an event where nancy cordes is this morning. >> reporter: she is leading by 20 points here in virginia in our battleground tracker. it's one of two states a that she is visiting today. those poll numbers help to explain why increasingly clinton is turning her attention away from bernie sanders, training her fire, instead, on the republican candidates. >> i want to debate whoever they put up because here is what they are saying. they are selling the same snake oil, trickle down economics. >> reporter: clinton changed her focus after her south carolina blowout. >> tomorrow, this campaign goes national! >> reporter: she won the state's african-american vote by a staggering 72 points. on "face the nation," sanders didn't sugar-coat it. >> we did really, really, really badly with older african-americans voters. we got decimate.
compete in seven more southern states. the latest cbs news battleground tracker shows him trailing clinton by 24 points in texas and 28 points in georgia. voters there said clinton is more qualified, but they viewed sanders as more principle and hon honest. >> secretary clinton does it a little bit differently. >> reporter: a distinction he tried to draw in oklahoma city. >> if you're going to get paid $200,000 for a speech, must be a pretty damn good speech. and if it's such a good speech, transcript! let everybody see it! >> reporter: clinton campaigned in nashville, a camera caught her can dit reaction when he told her about the latest trump controversy. sanders shared that sentiment tweeting america's first black president cannot and will not be

much more of the vote to really overtake trump. so we are going to have to see what happens when the voters get in the booth and start deciding what they are going to do to see if there is anything to stop trump. at the moment, this race to the bottom in the back and forth between the candidates hasn't seemed to have hurt him. >> rather than a campaign of ideas has become a campaign about mussolini and kkk and the size of a candidate's hands. what is going on in the national republican party about how this may affect the party's future and electoral chances in other races? >> once you're talking about mussolini you're in dangerous territory than makeup. these are repugnant ideas that the republican party stands very far apart of and the difficulty for donald trump even though he dissed about david duke on friday when he was asked by jake
seemed to be sort of unable to immediately denounce the kkk and white supremacist. this should not be difficult and gives support to those saying he is playing footsy with the ugliest ideas out there. >> a debate on thursday, a lot of people thought marco rubio did very well in. what is chris christie looking for? do you see this possible vp ticket for donald? >> possibly. i think it was a chance for chris christie to get back in the story a little bit after his poor showing in new hampshire and dropping out of the race, because he really ran on things, chris christie, that donald trump doesn't believe in and said things about trump and his lack of experience that are contradicted by what he said in end. so it's helpful as you mentioned for donald trump to have an endorsement from somebody like
so it was good for the news cycle but i think other than that, donald trump is off on his own and got his own thing going. whether a place for christie in a trump administration there way. >> john, thanks. our team will bring you super tuesday results in prime time and our coverage begins at 10:00/9:00 central on cbs. a soldier accused of killing his wife and a police officer is expected to face a judge today. police say that staff sergeant ronald hamilton shot and killed officer ashley guindon on saturday. it was her first day with the prince william county police department in virginia. jeff pegues is at the court where hamilton's arraignment is scheduled to take place. jeff, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. ron hamilton will be in a courtroom today. not working at his job in i.t. at the pentagon joint staff services center.

officer in 2015, guindon spent nearly eight years in the marine corps reserves. police say ashley, along with two other officers, arrived at ronald hamilton's woodbridge home saturday night on a domestic disturbance call. >> they approached the front door of the home and the subject inside the home opened fire, striking three officers. >> reporter: the pentagon staff sergeant allegedly shot and killed 28-year-old guindon and shot and wounded 33-year-old david mccown and 31-year-old jesse hampton before surrendering to police. during the search of the home, police found the body of hamilton's wife crystal. authorities also discovered the couple's 11-year-old son unharmed. >> the wife was able to contact the police officer, however, before our arrival, she was shot and killed allegedly by the accused. >> it's always been a peaceful neighborhood where everybody get along with everybody.

strikes. but for civilians in areas that are quiet, this patchwork truce offers relief and a glimmer of hope it might grow into a broader and more lasting arrangement with monitors and designated safe zones. especially in neighborhoods like the old city here thoroughly destroyed by years of fighting but now back in government hands and quiet. life is starting to return to the ruins. calmer, repairs, even school. the partial truce is also a rare bit of good news to the thousands of homeless syrians who were forced out of their towns and villages by fighting and who know want nothing more than to return. the united nations now wants to take advantage of this pause in the fighting to deliver aid to 150,000 people in various parts of syria. and they have also announced a new round of peace talks

women made up 61% of democratic primary voters in south carolina this weekend. according to cbs exit polling and unmarried women comprised a bigger percentage of married voters than their peers. rebecca explores the rising influence and independents of unmarried women in her new book called "all the single ladies" and writes the expanded presence of women as independent entities means a redistribution of power that has until recently been
the book is posted by simon and shuser, a division of cbs. we spoke to unmarried women to get their thoughts on dating kroorkser , careers and what makes them feel complete. >> i roll with it. >> very single right now. >> four-year relationship. if you like it then you should have put a ring on it >> i'm single as a dollar bill. >> i'm single. >> i have been single for five years. we're talking big plans right now. >> every single party i get asked do you have a boyfriend? are you dating? >> sometimes you don't find the right one right away. >> i don't think i want to. >> i think i would be devastated if i didn't get married. >> i'm thinking about career goals first. >> i want to have enough time for both, home life and work life. >> i always choose my family over my career at the end of the day.
because i can't have a family if i can't support them. >> pushing myself professionally is way more of a priority. >> i don't think the biological clock has hit in full force yet. >> five years from now, i plan to have a family, be married. i plan to marry rich actually. >> the key to me feeling complete is being my truest, most confident self. >> you have to love yourself as a person to love someone else that much to be married. >> rebecca, good morning. wow. this is a terrific book. i know you spent five years putting it together. what's interesting, what you found, women choosing to be independent, unmarried before they are married is becoming what's that mean? >> it means it's not -- even though it leads to unprecedented level of economic, sexual, social independence for women it is not a politicized action for many women.
want to prioritize career. but mostly this is become the pattern. it used to be between 1890 and 1980 the median age of first marriage for women fluctuated between 20 and 22 and didn't go higher than that and it is now 27. marriages begin later and often happen not at all. >> in 1960, 60% of young women were married and now 20% of young women. >> how is that changing us? >> it changes everything. >> us meaning the general society. >> it changes everything how the nation works. our government, our social policies, civic institutions are built with one kind of citizenry
>> not just the presidential level. >> unmarried women vote democratic. they require sort of a whole new set of social policies that democrats are more likely to be behind. >> what about men? men are also marrying late. >> they are. the population of single men is growing. historically men have been able to live more easily independent lives. they have been more easily able to earn their livings, be economically independent, to have sexual lives not judged so harshly. it is relatively new for women. as far as being able to have that kind of social independence and have it be a norm, rather than a scandalous aberration. >> i thought one of the fascinating things about this, the historical significance of single women.
have had a huge impact on our society. >> in the 19th century when so many men went west and so many killed during in the civil war, there was a huge population of unmarried women. a lot of these women, whose lives suddenly weren't given over to the responsibilities of wifeliness and motherhood put their energies toward the abolition, suffer raj, movements, teaching expansion of secondary education. >> nurses in medicine. >> absolutely. many of those pioneers and reformers were unmarried or unconventionally married women. >> you hope it means a pervasive penetration of the major institutions in america. >> it is happening. you see unmarried women rising in politics. we have so few women and women of color in politics and increasingly you see people like donna edwards running for
single women rising and they are going to represent a population that's changed from anything we have ever seen before. >> it is fascinating. thank you so much. congratulations on the book. >> thank you so much. >> "all the single ladies" goes on sale tomorrow. a an alternative to the academy awards sends a message. how the winners of the all-deaf movie awards and the movie industry. you are watching cbs this morning. the movie industry. you're watching "cbs this morning." zero added sugar, zero artificial sweetener and zero fat. and zero holding me back! oikos triple zero. be unstoppable. mmm dannon soil is the foundation... for healthy plants. just like gums are the foundation for healthy teeth. new colgate total daily repair toothpaste. it helps remineralize enamel and fight plaque germs for healthier teeth and gums. strengthen the foundation for healthy teeth.

i wasn't invited! oh, that's not an invitation i would turn down. but i understand -- i'm not hating. i understand you're mad. jalen is mad and her man will was not nominated for "concussion." i get it, i get it. i get it, i get it. you get mad. it's not fair that will was this good and didn't get nominated! you're right! it's also not fair that will was paid $20 million for "wild, wild west" okay? >> there are some surprising winners this morning who are celebrating their oscar trophies. mad max and spotlight and revenant took home of the most award last night. mad max led the pack with six. >> the oscars have been under fire since no minorities were nominated in the second straight year. chris rock didn't stop there. >> i'm here at the academy
white people's choice awards. you realize if they nominated a host, i wouldn't even get this job! so y'all would be watching neil patrick harris right now. >> wesley morris and elena are here this morning. how did chris rock do? >> i thought he did great. we don't want him to be comfortable. we want him to push the boundary. >> we want him to be chris rock. >> yeah. >> you don't hire him to just be nice to everybody. i think it's interesting that he managed to do a lot of things, like he went after the jada pinkett-smith and will smith boycott or their not attending. he really wanted to keep the focus on there not being nominees of color, while also
racism -- or the lack of inclusion is pervasive, like he wouldn't get the job irnl. >> he either. he is providing a context when he gave a historical context for the idea of boycotting. >> both of you gave him straight a's? >> no. >> no. >> i just want to mention one more thing i thought he did was brilliant make the point about there being black oscars and why the gender categories are still in force. i've been saying this -- i wanted to write a story about this and i've been saying three years, the grammys no longer have gender categories. i want to know what would happen -- i think it would change things a lot in terms of how we talk about these things if you eliminated the gender category. >> one of the reasons we continue to have them is women don't tend to lead movies in the same way men do. most of the oscar nominated movies are the story of a hero on a quest. >> i will bet you anything, stuff would change if you just
supporting actor nominees and ten best actor nominees. >> robert de niro says i don't need to slow down my acting because of merle streep. >> not at all. >> not at all. >> you would have a really interesting conversation when those nominations came out, you know, in january and it was 20. >> what did you like or not like about chris is my question. >> i thought something he did that was interesting was he either repeated the same jock that he did when he hosted the last time or he made a call back where he did a video bit where he went to a movie theater in a black neighborhood. the last time he hosted it was magic johnson theater in harlem. this year he went to compton. >> there is controversy he wasn't there. >> oh, really? >> yes. he asked movie-goers if they had seen some of the nominate films no. >> yes. >> it was funny when he did it the first time. >> it was brilliant the first
>> but coming back to it, it maybe was a little bit weak from a comedy point of view. >> let's talk about leonardo dicaprio. he used his speech to make a good thing? >> oh, absolutely. i think he has been such an activist for environmental causes that would you be point. >> that is very, as i was saying last night, on brand for leo or leonardo dicaprio because i don't know him! >> did he it smartly? >> yeah. i would have been surprised if he hadn't done it. he has been trumpeting these they are real. >> it was a night when a lot of people called out causes that were bigger than the show he themselves which i thought was interesting. it was a moment where people taking the time to use this platform to say this is not just about me winning an award. look at vice president biden and
about stop sexual abuse or the diversity issue obviously. >> the production itself brought out these sexual survivors or these abuse survivors and i powerful. >> that said, wesley, you worked in boston and i worked in boston as well. >> yes. >> i worked -- >> the globe. >> you worked at the "globe" which this story is about. "spotlight "spotlight" raced out to the early lead and backed off. this was a little bit of a surprise. >> yes. it wing came down to three movies. this was -- i mean, when you think about it it's kind of a no-brainer. it's the most important of those, you know, quote, important of those three movies. it's really well made. >> great to see investigative journalism -- >> cheering at home. >> the least divisive between
>> but the narrative also was that sylvester stallone will win for "creed" as best supporting actor? >> people thought he had the edge. and mark rylance was a surprise of the night. even if you think it's a done deal, all of these, you know, front runners are going to win there is usually a surprise that often comes in the supporting categories and to see somebody like rylance honored for the theater actor, honored to "bridge of spies" for a quieter performance than severls ylvester stallone did, i think is nice. >> one final thing to say it reminds me to watch the oscars, i mean, good actors, how many good arks we have and really are people out there who do what they do extraordinarily well. >> yes. no, it's great. one thing i will say about this so-called diversity issue is i don't know who was booking the guests or who said no, but all
they were either abc employees or from some other realm of entertainment. very few of them were american. it was just an interesting optic. >> a subtext that other streams of entertainment are doing it better perhaps than movies. >> here they are to give movie awards to people who -- >> served -- >> yes. >> thank you for being here. >> thanks for having us. >> great to have you here. >> thank you both. you can consider today a gift
if you're waking up a little groggy from your oscars party, you may not have noticed that today is a leap day. but what exactly does that mean? jamie wax takes us through times loophole. >> reporter: good morning. that's right. every four year, we have to squeeze an extra day into february. except we don't add an extra day every four of that years, it's
divisible by 400. in that sounds, confusing it is! we started to dig into leap years and figure out what it's about and started with one very special leap day birthday embrace the latter. but why does daisy's birthday only come around once every four years? >> reporter: do you know why we have a leap year? >> no. >> no. >> probably something about the sun? >> to do with the seasons and
>> i don't know. el nino? >> reporter: we decided it might be best to consult an expert. here is theoretical futurist michio kaku. why do we have a leap year? >> you go around the sun is 3 65 days is what we learn in school, no? mother nature made it 365 hours plus five hours and 49 minutes and a few odd seconds. that means that every year, we have to compensate for one quarter of a day. so after four years, we have to add one more day. >> reporter: when did we figure out the need for this extra day? it was way back in 46 b.c. julius caesar realized the calendar they were going after wasn't working. together they realized what the egyptians had discovered we need an extra day every four years to
the julien calendar. but even that wasn't quite right. see? the solar year is actually only .242 days longer than the calendar year and not an even.25. when we add a full day every four years, we are left with a surplus of roughly 11 minutes every year, and that can start to add up. so, finally, in 1582, pope gregory 17th fixed the glitch and instituted the calendar we still follow today. how is it different? i'll let michio kaku explain. >> 11 minutes difference in one year's rotation builds up. and that is why the pope had to intervene and say we have to more time. so, for example, in the year 1600, that is divisible by 400, there was a leap year, but in 1700 and 1800 and 1900, no, no
leap year. >> reporter: a lot of tweaking. >> yes. >> reporter: luckily, we have digital watches to account for all this. >> this particular watch has a wheel in it that turns run revolution every four years to accommodate the extra day. >> reporter: someone engineered a wheel that turns once every four years? >> yes. >> reporter: many of us have to adjust the date on our watches at the end of every everybody but this one does that for you. >> this hand represents the date. >> reporter: in order to see how it works, we looked at one under a microscope. >> a cycle of 48 months for the leap year, so we have a cam of 48. we have 48 lobes and each lobe represents a month. >> reporter: it takes over a year and a half to construct one watch and it will set you back around $85,000. so you have four years to save up for the next leap year. around the world, leap year traditions vary.
leap year. up north a british tradition says february 29th is the only day a woman can propose marriage to a man. for daisy, her birthday tradition has always been a nice dinner with family and friends. but this year is different. after all, it's not every day you turn 25! one last thing to think before this leap year morning. if you haven't left for work yet, you may want to consider just staying home! after all, if you're a salaried employee your company is getting an extra day of work from you this year for free! >> good point, jamie! >> i wish i knew that before i came to work today. >> what a great story. >> cool stuff. thank you. happy leap day. >> leap day. leap year and leap day. leap everything! you're watching "cbs this
