5:30 pm
andd betting on the super bowl. even small advertisers are captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. >> pelley: hillary clinton made history today, though not the way sheoped. she was declared the winner of iowa's democratic caucuses by the smallest margin ever. now she faces a tougher battle against bernie s sders on his new england home turf next week. new hampshire is also where republican donald trump will be looking for a comeback after losing to ted cruz and barely edging out marco rubio. our campaign 2016 correspondents are on the trail, and first we'll go to major garrett with the republicans. >> god bless the great state of new hampshire. ( applauau ) so what a victory last night.
5:31 pm
>> reporter: after earning most iowa caucus goats in g.o.p. history, ted cruz boasted to us he had deied the odds. >> every tv pundit on virtually every station said cruz can't win. there's no chance cruz is going to win iowa. it's not going to happen. it was going to be trump, trump, trump, trump trump. >> reportete butt wasn't. trump fell 6,000 votes short and gave an uncommonly subdued concession speech. >> we finished second, and i want to tell you something, i'm just honored. i'm really honored. >> reporter: but today, the bombast was back. trump complained on twit they're he had not been given any credit by the voters for self-funding his campaign. and that the media has not covered my long-shot great finish in ioio fairlrl trump called cruz's victory speech long, rambling, and overly flamboyant. trump still holds large leads in new hampshire polls but the race is quickly become a battle among trump, cruz, and iowa third-place firn marco rubio. >> it's good to see you guys. >> reporter: the florida
5:32 pm
better position to be the nominee thanruz. who iss closer right now. >> i think i am and i'll tell you why. first of all, we're one delegate apart, dpite the outcome. and i think we have the best chance to unify the party, but also to grow it. >> reporter: but rubio's newfound momentum also comes with new attacks from rivals john kasich, jeb bush, and chris christie, who also need strong showings in new hampshire to stay viable. >> let's see if he'llll answer your questions and stand up and take that because i don't think he will. and you know why, i don't think he can. >> setimes people under duress will react in ways they probably will regegt later into don't take that well. >> reporter: christi finished tenth. cruz worked really hard for his victory in iowa, holding two-thirds as many eventas trump. and when you do the math, trump collected twice as many votes per iowa visits than cruz. >> pelley: worth remememring they haven't picked the nominee
5:33 pm
now we go to the democrats and here is nancy cordes. >> i am so thrilled that i'm coming to new hampshire after winning iowa. ( cheers ) >> reporter: the first woman ever to win the iowa caucuses did it by .2 of 1%. arar you conceding the race in iowa? >> last i saw we were four delegates down. as i understand it, there were some precincts actually where delegates were won with the flipave coin. so we want to takak a look at that. >> tails! >> reporter: at least six precincts broke a tie with a coin toss. >> hillary clinton. ( cheers ) >> reporter: the large turnout, evenly split, caused challenges elsewhere, too. >> we should do a realignment. >> reporter: in the end, 84% of young voters under the age of 30 went for sanders, but% of caucus-goers were 50 up and and
5:34 pm
the granite state is rockier territory for clinton. the latesescbs news battleground tracker shows sanders leading in new hampshire by 19 points. his democratic socialist message plays well with the state's large independent population. >> it sounds to me like you're ready for a political revolution. ( cheers and applause ) >> reporter: sanders also has something of a home field advantage here. he is from neighboring v vrmont, but crts has deep ties here, too, scott. it is here that she stage aid comeback eight years ago after a stinging floss iowa. >> pelley: nancy cordes for us tonight. nancy, thank you. two carn ults of the iowa caucuses mike huckabee, who won there eight years ago, did poorly last night and dropped out, and so did democrat martin o'malley. clinton picked up 22 national convention delegates in iowa, sanders 21, but that's a little
5:35 pm
already has 362 super delegates, party leaders who pledged their votes to her. that brings her now to 384 or about 16% of the 2382 she needs. after new hampshire, the polls indicated the primaries are expected to break clinton's way. on the republican side, cruz pickedp eight delegates, trump and rubio seven. ey need a little over 1200, so far to go. john dickerson is our cbs news political director and anchor of "face the nation." well, john, as we just heard what, a difference an election makes. tell me, how is the race changed? what's the new framework? >> reporter: well, we've been talking about this race in terms of the establishment versus the outsiders. but we should maybe look at it in terms o o the ideologog versus electability. if you look at the entrance polls in iowa, those who were asked, "who shares your values?" overwhelmingly they went for ted cruz. when people were asked, "who do
5:36 pm
the large share went to marco rubio. going into new hampshire, ted cruz is saying i'm the true consistent conservative, the keeper of the flame, rally to my light. marco o bio is saying i can beat hillary clinton. >> pelley: a question of ideology and electability. tell me, where does this go from here? >> reporter: well, marco rubio did well in iowa i i part because he did better than expectations but now that he's saying he's in the top tier, he is the alternative to cruz and trump, those expectations are very high. so he would have to do very well in new hampshire, which is a less-ideological state. of course, he has new competitors there in bush, christi, and kasich, all of whom want to crag him down, and, of course, there is still the roiling fight that willl continue between ted cruz and donald trump. >> pelley: john dickerson. we'll be watching on sunday on "face the nation." john, thanks so much. now, in another important story tonight, health officials have confirmed the first transmission
