>> reporter: donald trump has a simple goal in new hampshire -- prove he can win as a presidential candidate. you got a big lead. is any part of you a little nervous? i mean, new hampshire voters tend to be so independent. change at the last minute. >> totally, i mean, you have to think that, i mean, who knows what's going to happen? we have -- yeah, we have good poll numbers, but i would be happy to win by one vote. i just want to win. >> reporter: to win here, trump is going hard-line. just look what he said at the abc news debate about waterboarding. >> mr. trump, you said not only does it work, but that you'd bring it back. >> we have people chopping the heads off christians. we have people chopping the heads off many other people. i would bring back waterboarding and i'd bring back a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding. >> reporter: trump was hit hardest at the debate by his old nemesis, jeb bush, attacking trump for his support of the government's right to seize private property for public use. >> what donald trump did was use eminent domain to try to take
the property of an elderly woman on the strip in atlantic city. that is not public purpose. that is downright wrong. >> he wants to be a tough guy. a lot of times you'll have -- you'll have -- and it doesn't work very well. >> how tough it is to take property from an elderly woman? >> let me talk. let me talk. quiet. >> how tough is it? >> a lot of times -- a lot of times -- >> reporter: now, trump is mocking bush. >> he's a total stiff, jeb bush. he's like a child, he's like a spoiled child. he spent $110 million on a campaign and he's nowhere. >> reporter: bush is now firing is back. >> donald trump organizes his campaign around disparaging people. i think we need a president that actually believes in the american people. that won't push everybody down to make themselves look good. >> reporter: as for bush's former protege, senator marco rubio, he was rising fast in new hampshire, but is now facing questions about whether he has what it takes, after he bungled this question about his
opponents' claims that as a first-term senator, he lacks experience. >> tonight, what are your accomplishments in the senate that demonstrate you are ready to be president of the united states? >> i'm proud of my service in the united states senate and before that in the florida legislature. and let's dispel once and for all with this fiction that barack obama doesn't know what he's doing. he knows exactly what he's doing. >> reporter: moments later, that same sentence, word for word. >> let's dispel with this fiction that barack obama doesn't know what he's doing. he knows exactly what he's doing. >> reporter: chris christie pounced. >> you see, everybody, i want the people at home to think about this. that's what washington, d.c. does. the memorized 25-second speech that is exactly what his advisers gave him. >> reporter: and rubio said it again a third time. >> here's the bottom line. this notion that barack obama doesn't know what he's doing -- >> there it is. there it is. the memorized 25-second speech. there it is, everybody. >> well, that's the reason why this campaign is so important. >> reporter: ohio governor john kasich, now on the rise in new hampshire, said he sure isn't
scripted. >> i think people want to know authenticity today, more than they ever have. >> and jon karl joins me now from a trump rally in manchester tonight. and jon, i want to get back to donald trump, telling you tonight, he doesn't have to win big, if he wins by just one vote, that will be good enough for him? >> reporter: well, if the polls are accurate, he'll win by a lot more than that. he's led every public poll in this state for seven months and leads the latest by double digits. >> jon karl with us live tonight. jon, thank you. and as you point out, jon, many eyes on senator marco rubio after saturday night's debate. under fire, as you saw, on that stage, from governor jeb bush and from new jersey governor chris christie. criticizing rubio for what christie called a, quote, memorized 25-second speech. as you saw, rubio repeating himself during that debate. abc's tom llamas, one-on-one with rubio tonight with his own reaction, and with the voters who were watching. >> the next president of the united states of america, marco rubio! >> reporter: tonight, senator marco rubio hoping new hampshire voters have short memories. >> marco! marco! >> reporter: but on the trail today, voters bringing up that
debate debacle. >> saturday night, you didn't do too good, but i'm still rooting for you. >> i feel good about it. we raised a lot of money online. >> reporter: today, i asked the senator if he's going to change his message. 24 hours to go, right? you're going to stick to the lines, even those in the debate they are criticizing you for, right? >> we're not going to change our message the entire campaign. right up to the general election when we defeat hillary clinton. barack obama is doing terrible damage to america. >> reporter: you still feel momentum? >> i wish more republicans would say that. >> reporter: you still feel momentum? >> absolutely. every day, we have more people joining our effort. we feel great. we really do. >> reporter: for rubio, the timing couldn't be worse. the day before the primary, undecided voters telling me, the debate moment stuck with them. >> i personally didn't think rubio did so well. i think he kind of got beat up on. >> reporter: inside rubio's manchester headquarters, the senator pushing volunteers to keep making those calls. the campaign feels he's knocked down, but not knocked out. >> and tom llamas joins us tonight from a rubio rally. and tom, some prominent
conservatives are coming to senator rubio's defense tonight? >> reporter: that's right, david. rush limbaugh acknowledges the debate was not rubio's finest moment, but he says the line that rubio kept repeating is a winning strategy. rush saying that president obama, quote, executed a plan to transform america into something it was not founded to be. rush says, more republican candidates should be saying that. david? >> tom llamas with us here in new hampshire tonight. tom, thank you. meantime, on the democratic side tonight, hillary clinton and bernie sanders in a fight to the finish here, as well. the new numbers, bernie sanders with a double-digit lead. 26 points before the primary tomorrow. hillary clinton hoping to at least close that gap to single digits here in sanders' neighboring state, amid new questions, did her own supporters' words about women voters backfire? abc's cecilia vega, one-on-one with former president bill clinton tonight. >> hey, my friend. >> reporter: tonight, with hillary clinton in the fight of her life, her husband, bill, feeling the pressure, too. >> the hotter this election
gets, the more i wish i were just a former president, and just for a few months, not the spouse of the next one. because -- you know, i have to be careful what i say. >> reporter: the former president taking on a new role in this campaign -- attack dog in chief. hitting bernie sanders. >> i mean, when you are making a revolution, you can't be too careful about the facts. >> reporter: clinton accusing some sanders' supporters of making offensive comments online to female hillary backers. >> vicious trolling. and attacks that are literally too profane, often, not to mention sexist, to repeat. >> reporter: today, when i asked about those charges -- do you think the sanders campaign is playing dirty? after a long pause, finally, an answer. >> no. i believe we ought to have the same rules for everybody. and if there is -- and i think we should be straightforward and transparent about all of this. >> reporter: bill clinton, not the only hillary surrogate on the offensive. former secretary of state
madeleine albright playing the gender card. >> and just remember -- there's a special place in hell for women who don't help each other. >> reporter: today, sanders feeling confident. >> to join with us in making that political revolution. hold on, hold on, wait a second! >> reporter: but he was all laughs this weekend on "snl." >> i am so sick of the 1% getting this preferential treatment. >> sounds like socialism to me. >> democratic socialism. >> what's the difference? >> huge difference. >> huge? >> huge. >> reporter: david, this is bernie sanders' final campaign stop before the voting starts. a university crowd expected to be in the thousands. this is exactly who he needs to show up tomorrow to push him to victory. david? >> cecilia, thank you. and we hope everyone at home

but i wondered if this was the right treatment for me. then my doctor told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you.

risk, taking us into a storm that was predicted. >> reporter: as early as wednesday, the forecast was for 30-foot waves and near hurricane-force winds. in a statement today, royal caribbean apologized to passengers and turned the ship back to new jersey. due to weather forecasted for the next few days. tonight, the cruiseline is promising passengers a full refund and more, but their vacations are ruined. david? >> steve, thank you. when we come back here, the new headline. a famous face, about to get into the presidential race? for the first time, weighing in himself. also, new developments in the midair explosion onboard that jet. surveillance video now providing a major new clue and you will see it. and it's believed for the first time, a meteorite striking people. the deadly object falling from the sky, leaving a crater in the earth. where it happened, next. ned, next. your heart loves omega-3s. but there's a difference between the omega-3s in fish oil and those in megared krill oil.
