[ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: hey, and i got to tell you, george, we have got quite a race here. in fact, if you look at the democratic and republican races combined, we have never seen an iowa caucus so close. it's finally here. >> i don't care if you're feeling horribly, 104 temperature, get out of bed and caucus. >> let's start a movement. toward the future that we want to make together!
7:03 am

7:05 am
folks. it's incredible how many are still undecided. of course they only have a few hours left to make up their minds. >> iowa always has a lot of last-minute surprises. jon, we'll check back in with you all morning long. >> we'll be checking in on the caucuses all day long as well. we'll talk about that. you're looking at a middle school, one of the biggest locations voters will gather tonight. it's empty now. okay, but more than 1,000 people evening to cast their votes and the candidates are making a big push right now, tom llamas has been covering the republicans since the beginning. you caught up with donald trump last night. ? no surprise. he told you he's feeling good. what is the strategy in these final hours? >> reporter: robin, good morning. the entire trump family is here. they're splitting up to cover more ground and sarah palin back donald trump. the man who wants to take iowa
7:06 am
he's been living on this bus for this month. this afternoon, he hits his magic number -- visiting all 99 counties in iowa. for them, it's all about the ground games. 12,000 volunteers. the volunteers try to make 20,000 calls a day. this state is so important for him. as for senator marco rubio he's hoping for one of those three tickets out of iowa. he's putting the pressure on cruz out yesterday and today telling everyone he can this is a must-win state for ted cruz. robin and george. >> let's go to cecilia right now. start. se is sill ya, the clinton family out in force all weekend long. and they're planning what they call a victory party tonight. >> reporter: they are. that shows a confidence heading into today. hillary clinton packing in the crowds. i'm telling you, i have never seen her on this campaign trail sounding more confident and more energized.
7:07 am
just last night, 2600 people packing into a high school gym for her, a raucous crowd but her campaign is telling me privately, they're approaching today with caution, this race that seemed to be hers for her lose. bernie sanders overnight telling his crowds he's in it for the long haul. bernie sanders wants to stay into this all of the way until the convention. >> all right, cecilia, thank you very much. clinton, good enough to join us day. thank you so much for doing this. do you have the victory party all set for tonight? race, robin. wire. but we feel very good. we worked so hard. i had a great operation here. so many young people organizers who fanned out across the state. the thousands of volunteers, we
7:08 am
past weekend. so, we're very committed, very energized, very enthusiastic. it all depends on who shows up tonight. who comes out to caucus in iowa. i'm urging anyone who interested in caucusing for me, please be there tonight, 6:30. i'll be there in spirit. because if you stand up for me, i will stand up for you during this campaign and into the white house. >> there are so many similarities between what's going on right now and eight years ago, you, again, are unexpected challenge that you are facing, what are the differences and similarities between what you're experiencing now and what happened eight years ago here in iowa? >> well, i think that i have much better organization to be just really clear about it. i think that we built an
7:09 am
lessons learned and we recruited some of the best people that you could find, anywhere in the country, working in democratic politics, i think i'm a better candidate. i think that, in addition to just knowing more about the caucus process and what we needed to do to build toward this night, my experience as secretary of state, really deepened and intensified my understanding about what the next president will have to face. so, all and all, i feel like it's a different, energized effort that is really bringing in people from across the state and indeed across the country who knows what's at stake in this election, understand how really dramatic and drastic it would be if the republicans were to take back the white house, they would rip out the progress. we wouldn't be able get the economy going for everybody, get
7:10 am
college, everything i'm talking about, which is really in response to the concerns and the worries that i hear from people as i crisscross this state. >> all 99 counties you have crisscrossed and we have seen you and your husband and we have seen your daughter as well. >> i haven't gotten all 99. i don't want anybody to think my silence is affirmation, but i covered a lot of ground and i have met many thousands of people. and really have learned so much. that's the best part of this. it's obviously exhausting, it takes a lot of concentration, but what keeps me going are the stories they tell me. it's something so intimidate, at least in my experience. i try to listen to people and hear what's on their minds. when people tell you about the open heart surgery their granddaughter had and they couldn't afford it without affordable health care.
7:11 am
drowning in student debt and needs a way out. it sticks with me. the months i spent here listening to iowans has really made a better candidate and i think it will make me a better president. >> well speaking of listening to iowans, we have jon karl, he's out and about. he's with voters. a third of voters here are undecided and let's hear what one voter has to ask you, jon. >> reporter: hello, robin. hello, secretary clinton. we're with rob from denison. you're undecided between hillary clinton and john kasich. what is your question. >> good morning, secretary clinton. as a liberal republican seems to be a dying breed, are you going to work bipartisanly with a partisan congress. >> that's a really good question.
7:12 am
get asked that a lot. i have a record of working with republicans, when i'm actually in a position to do so when, you know, there's a campaign it's a little bit different. when i was first lady, i worked to achieve the children's health insurance program, working across the aisle with both democrats and republicans. even reformed our foster care and adoption system, teaming up with delay, a very partisan republican in the house. in the senate, i worked hard to get health care for the national guard and reserves. i worked with senator lindsey graham in that case, i don't know if there was a single republican who didn't co-sponsor one of the bills that i worked on. as secretary of state, i had similar efforts to reach common ground to prove successful. i know in a campaign the distinctions have to be drawn. because we have to give voters a real sense of what each of us wants to do and to hold us accountable for the agenda we put forth. but i'm confident that i'm going to work really hard to find that common ground across the aisle
7:13 am
together. >> secretary clinton, thank you very much. we appreciate you joining us on this very busy and important day. thank you. >> thanks so much. great to talk to you. >> you as always. >> hillary clinton on top of the democrats right now. donald trump on top for the republicans. he joins us now by phone. good morning, mr. trump. good to have you again with us this morning. you know, you have never actually faced voters before, are you nervous? >> well, you have to be a little bit nervous. you know i like to win. i want to win for the country. not for myself. this is actually my first election night. i've gone through many election nights but always for someone else, george. this is a little bit different for me. >> i'm sure it is. what worries you most? >> well, i just hope everybody is going to be able to get out and vote. it looks like we're going to skirting the weather the weather will be okay.
7:14 am
everything is over. we just made it. that was a biggie. i hope everybody gets out and votes. we have had the biggest crowds of anybody, including sanders who's second. i will say that. we have the most enthusiasm. they're like love fests. i believe they're going to go out and vote. the theme is, make america great again. this is the chance. i'm self-funding my campaign. i'm the only one doing that, george. i'm putting up my money. nobody else is doing that. i think that's a big difference. lot of people like that. but there's great enthusiasm in those rooms and all over the state and all over every state. you know, when you look at new hampshire, you saw the polls where there's i guess a 25-point lead. in iowa, i think we're going to
7:15 am
to find out soon. >> your staying power has surprised so many people so far, i was wondering what your response is to chris christie and he said donald will take himself down over time. i think we might have lost mr. trump. >> yes, i have you. did you get that? >> i hear your fine. >> what is your response to chris christie who said you're going to take yourself down over time. >> well, people said i wasn't going to run. then, they said, if i ran, he would have fun and leave. now i'm in first place. chris took his down with the bridge. new jersey is the 50th worse state. meaning it's the last. he shouldn't be talking like that. i'm surprised he would talk like that. because i know him.
7:16 am
until this all happened. no, i think it's been just the opposite. i would be very surprised. he's got enough problems and he's doing very poorly in the polls. i'm surprised that he would have said that. my life has been a life of success, it's been a life of winning, it's been a life of making great deals. it's been a life -- i have achieved tremendous success in so many different ways. for somebody to say that, obviously, isn't doing really well right now is pretty unusual, i think. for the first time tonight. we'll be talking to your sons in the next half-hour. thank you for joining us this morning. well. >> thank you very much. donna brazile. and matthew dowd and when we see what's going on here, it's like an electric-type atmosphere. and it's something that we haven't witnessed in quite some time -- such uncertainty.
7:17 am
the campaigns. they're friends and family. donald trump talked about it. the voters are now in charge as of today. and it brings tremendous anxiety because everything you thought was going to happen may not happen. we'll look at tonight i think and we're going to be surprised in the course of this. there's an expectation there could be some big political earthquake depending on what happens on the republican or the democratic side. right now the voters have taken control. >> donna, what you're seeing on both sides, donald trump on the republican side. bernie sanders on the democratic side. just harnessing this outsider power up against the organizations of hillary clinton and ted cruz. >> the big challenge tonight, george is to take all of that passion and enthusiasm that you saw on the campaign trail and translate it into votes. the good thing about the hawkeye state, voters can turn up tonight and register to vote. this is a same-day registration.
7:18 am
to the race and it may be an advantage to mr. trump and mr. sanders. let's go to rob for the weather. >> hey, george, we're watching this massive storm traverse its way across the country. it will impact iowa but not until midnight tonight. all right, that's the latest forecast for the polls. right now, your select cities brought to you by carmax.we are starting off with some morning fog that may deposit a light layer of frost or ice on area roads. the fog should lift around mid to late

back then. but what is the earliest memory that you had that your father was possibly going to run for president. >> i think we have seen it throughout our lives. in 2012 was the first time we thought he's going to do it. he's employed tens of thousands of people and created thousands of businesses. we were very young in the organization, he wouldn't jeopardize their careers, livelihood to stick away if he didn't think the company had good stewards. that's a great testament to myself, my brother, my sister that he believes these guys can probably do it. he's way too loyal of a y to jeopardize all that they have given him over the years. it means too much to him. now he's ready and doing it and doing it well. >> reality check time, your dad wrote in the book, if you want to know when i'm wrong ask my kids. give us something real. >> oh, no. i would say never, george. actually -- i don't even know what you're talking about. we don't understand that word. i think over the years, he knows.
7:43 am
he's given us great autonomy to do what we need in the business. if he gives advice and we go a different way we'll get to hear about it for the rest of our lives. understatement of the century. it's a lot of fun. he's tough but he's fair. that's the way he'll always be. >> we got to go. thanks, guys. good luck today. we'll be right back.ack. alright.. big smile!

my moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis made a simple trip to the grocery store anything but simple. so finally, i had an important conversation with my dermatologist about humira. he explained that humira works inside my body to target and help block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to my symptoms. in clinical trials, most adults saw 75% skin clearance. and the majority were clear or almost clear in just 4 months. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection.

we're live in iowa all morning long. talking to the candidates and that's marco rubio right now. he'll join us live coming up. >> was he checking out the calories in that? >> i think he was. we're behind the scenes with all the candidates this morning. i am a lot of things. i am his sunshine. i am his advocate. so i asked about adding once-daily namenda xr to his current treatment for moderate to severe alzheimer's. it works differently. when added to another alzheimer's treatment, it may improve overall function and cognition. and may slow the worsening of symptoms for a while. vo: namenda xr doesn't change how the disease progresses. it shouldn't be taken by anyone allergic to memantine, ororho's had a bad reaction to namenda xr or its ingredients.
7:47 am
tell their doctor if they have, or ever had, a seizure disorder, difficulty passing urine, liver, kidney or bladder problems, and about medications they're taking. certain medications, changes in diet, or medical conditions may affect the amount of namenda xr in the body and may increase side effects. the most common side effects are headache, diarrhea, and dizziness. he's always been my everything. now i am giving back. ask their doctor about once-daily namenda xr and learn about a free trial offer at when you make a pb&j with smker's, that's s e difference betwtwn ordinary everyday and exquisitely delicious in an everyday sort of way. because with a name like smucker's, it has to be good. if you misplace your discover card, you can use freeze it
7:48 am
and once you find it, you can switch it right on again. you're back! freeze it, only from discover. get it at i've smoked a lot and quit a lot, but ended up nowhere. now i use this. the nicoderm cq patch, with unique extended release technology, helps prevent the urge to smoke all day. i want this time to be my last time.
