>> reporter: donald trump's victory, in a word -- huge. steamrolling the competition. >> i wanted to congratulate the other candidates, okay? now that i got that over with -- you know, it's always tough, and then tomorrow, boom, boom. but that's the way it is. >> reporter: today, for anyone who thought trump was just a reality star, new hampshire was a reality check. trump pulverized his closest rival 2 to 1, and now he's already predicting his next victory. >> we are going now to south carolina, we're going to win in south carolina. >> reporter: but in south carolina, trump is already under attack by ted cruz, who today released this video. >> look! i got the trump action figure. >> no way. it's huge! >> what does he do? >> he pretends to be a republican. >> reporter: in south carolina today, a big crowd for ohio governor john kasich. he was last night's surprise second place finisher, running an upbeat campaign.
>> tonight, the light overcame the darkness of negative campaigning. >> reporter: but today, kasich says he's ready to fight. >> don't mess with me, okay? so, i'm not going to be a pin cushion or a marshmallow, but i'm also not going to spend my time trying to trash other people. >> reporter: perhaps the biggest disappointment in new hampshire was marco rubio, fifth place, blaming his debate disaster. >> our disappointment tonight is not on you. it's on me. it's on me. i did not -- i did not do well on saturday night, so, listen to this. that will never happen again. >> reporter: rubio had real momentum, until his repeat-a-thon at the abc news debate. >> 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: minutes later -- >> let's dispel with this fiction that barack obama doesn't know what he's doing. >> reporter: today, we caught up with rubio as he and his family left snowy new hampshire.
>> how did they let you guys on here, man? >> reporter: onboard his campaign plane, a crush of reporters. but later, one-on-one, i asked him to explain what went wrong. so, what happened to you in that moment? >> in the debate? you know, i had made the decision that i didn't want to get into a debate where i would attack other republicans. and in hindsight, you know, maybe that was a mistake. i shouldn't have done it that way, because what it did was, it moved me to a message that pivoted away from the question and kind of led to this perception that i tried to evade it. >> reporter: rubio tells me he's now ready to hit donald trump. let's face it. you laid off trump. >> my campaign has largely been about avoiding those sort of inter-republican fights. now, if there's a policy difference, we'll talk about policy differences. >> reporter: but are you going to go after donald trump? >> we're going to talk about policy differences. look, he is now the front-runner, okay? he is now clearly the front-runner for the republican nomination. and jon karl with us now from south carolina. jon, you and i were in new hampshire last night, you're already in south carolina. donald trump, about to take the stage there behind you. he loves the polls. so, tell our viewers tonight, where does he stand there?
>> reporter: david, he has led every major poll in south carolina since october. the most recent one was a week before the iowa caucuses, and he had a double-digit lead. >> meantime, jon, the other dropping headline tonight, and this typically happens after new hampshire, two candidates dropping out of the race. new jersey governor chris christie, saying he is leaving the race, meeting with his campaign staff late today after spending time with his family, his wife on this. and former hewlett-packard ceo carly fiorina announcing she's out, too. suddenly, the stakes even higher for those who are left? >> reporter: absolutely. and remember, this race started with 17 republican candidates. now, we are down to six. donald trump and five others all dividing up the anti-trump vote, and that leaves trump solidly in the lead. >> all right, jon karl reporting in from south carolina tonight. jon, thank you. meantime, on the democratic side tonight, we are one-on-one with bernie sanders, after his major victory over hillary clinton by 22 points. here in new york city today, visiting harlem, and since his
victory last night, raising more than $5 million in just 24 hours. secretary clinton here in new york, as well, huddling with her team now, conceding she
has a lot of work to do, especially among young voters. tonight, abc's cecilia vega asking bernie sanders if the next battles in south carolina and nevada were held tonight, could he beat clinton? and cecilia got a very honest answer. >> reporter: today in harlem, a hero's welcome for bernie sanders. hugs from the reverend al sharpton, breakfast at the iconic soul food restaurant sylvia's. sanders reaching out for african-american support, hoping to build on the momentum from his big win. >> because of a huge voter turnout, and i say huge -- we won. >> reporter: sanders now vowing to take his political revolution forward. >> and now, it's onto nevada, south carolina and beyond. nice to see you again.
>> nice to see you. >> reporter: but today, when i asked, this stark admission. if the election were tomorrow, do you think you could win south carolina and nevada? >> no. fortunately for us, the
election is not tomorrow. >> reporter: he faces an uphill climb in those states, where a large portion of the democratic vote is black and latino. it explains his visit to harlem today, trying to match hillary clinton's strong support in those communities. do you really think you can beat her on that? there are polls that show you behind by 40% when it comes to nonwhite voters. >> i'm not denying that we have got a lot of work in front of us. but we have already closed the gap within the african-american and latino communities. >> reporter: hillary clinton now fighting hard for those voters. >> you have to face up to the hard truth of injustice and systemic racism. >> reporter: in new hampshire, hillary clinton putting on a brave face in defeat. >> now, we take this campaign to the entire country. we're going to fight for every vote. >> reporter: but today, clinton off the trail.
her team trying to figure out how she managed to lose women voters 44% to 55%, and young people 16% to 83%. clinton already trying to woo them. >> i know i have some work to do. particularly with young people. but i will repeat again what i have said this week. even if they are not supporting me now, i support them. >> reporter: but today on "the view," sanders paying hillary clinton a compliment during a little game of campaign word association. >> donald trump? >> what can i say? >> one nice thing. come on, bernie. one nice thing. >> he has nice ties? >> nice hair? >> humble. >> hillary clinton? >> intelligent.
>> cecilia vega with us live tonight here in new york. very tough loss for hillary clinton. and you're learning that tonight, her top aides are calling key supporters to tell them the campaign is ready for the next fight? >> reporter: that's right, david. there were calls today to donors, there were calls to supporters on capitol hill. aides trying to ease concerns after what happened in new hampshire. the big question right now, though, is what happens next? these aides privately are saying they are heading into south carolina in good shape, but they are worried about what would could happen in nevada, david. >> all right, cecilia vega with us again tonight. cecilia, thank you. to another breaking headline at this hour. late today, the department of justice suing the city of ferguson. filing a civil rights lawsuit, alleging the city routinely violated the rights of residents, misusing law enforcement, calling the abuses, quote, ongoing and pervasive. the nation watched those images as they came in, police in combat gear, clashing with protesters after the death of michael brown, the unarmed black teen, killed by a white police officer. a grand jury later choosing not to indict that officer. and abc's senior justice correspondent pierre thomas,
live in our washington bureau tonight. pierre, what comes next? >> reporter: david, tonight, the justice department is going to a federal judge to force the city of ferguson to overhaul its police department. in a blistering press conference this evening, the attorney general has just accused the ferguson police of, quote, racial bias against african-americans, calling the practices egregious and routine in that city that saw so much racial unrest in the summer of 2014. this new lawsuit comes after ferguson city council last night rejected a deal the city had negotiated with the justice department. lynch announced she is suing less than 24 hours later, highly unusual, david. >> all right, pierre thomas with the live developments on ferguson tonight. pierre, thank you. now, to the extreme weather we're tracking at this hour. 11 states under winter weather alerts, record-breaking cold on the way in the east. record-breaking heat in the west at the same time. images coming in from outside cleveland tonight. slick roads there. a major pileup, parts of i-90, shut down. let's get right to meteorologist rob marciano, tracking all of this. really a tale of two countries
tonight. >> reporter: it is. and the cold air we're going to see this weekend, it double the coldest air some spots have seen in years. in the west, a big ridge out there. that drops down even more cold to the east. so, big trough, and we'll see more lake effect snow showers and squalls kind of rotate through the area. and the real cold stuff will come in this weekend. we'll see wind chills 10 to 20 degrees below zero across the northeast. that means actual temperatures will be right around zero degrees. time to think about protecting your pipes and other vulnerable areas in your home. david? >> all right, rob marciano tracking it off. rob, thank you. now, to the giant cruise ship rocked by hurricane-force winds, filled with american passengers recording the whole thing. furious now with the captain. finally returning home at this hour. and abc's linsey davis is there. >> reporter: 4,500 now sea weary passengers slowly making their way back to new jersey tonight, three days ahead of schedule, after being caught in a severe storm. >> it's probably the biggest scare that i've had so far in my life. >> reporter: a team of coast guard inspectors on deck to
determine the extent of storm damage to the royal caribbean cruise ship after it was pounded for hours by hurricane-force winds. maritime lawyer jim walker says the half dozen passengers who have already called him from the ship, saying they feared for their lives, probably don't have a case. >> we simply think that their cases are too difficult and probably won't be successful. >> reporter: but he says one could argue the cruiseline ignored several weather predictions of the storm, though the captain says he didn't realize the magnitude ahead of time. >> it just exploded. >> reporter: anthem of the seas has a soldout, eight-day cruise departi ining for the bahamas o saturday. royal caribbean tells us it's scheduled to continue as planned. david? >> linsey, thank you. now, to a developing headline on a story we've been following here. an urgent new warning about lithium batteries on planes. the risk that they could cause a, quote, catastrophic fire. and now the stunning images the faa wants you to see. their own experiment. and you're about to see what happened. abc's david kerley covers aviation for us.
>> reporter: this is the faa's own test of what can happen if a shipment of lithium ion batteries spontaneously ignites. these batteries can lead to "catastrophic aircraft loss," the faa is warning tonight, and current fire suppression systems "cannot effectively control a lithium battery fire." they power our computers and tablets. and can overheat and ignite. think about the house fires and the hoverboard fires suspected of being started by batteries that we've seen recently. what if it happens in a cargo hold? and it apparently has. two 747s have crashed. the packages of batteries they carried suspected of contributing. that's why the national transportation safety board is also out with a recommendation, that if batteries are carried, they are separate from other flammable materials, and the number of batteries be restricted. airline pilots want even more -- that the batteries be listed as hazardous. >> we cannot continue to lose these airplanes due to fires that are uncontained and quickly bring an airplane down. >> reporter: major u.s. carriers don't allow the shipments of
lithium batteries, but that's not true for all airlines, which is why tonight the faa calling on those carriers to study the risks of carrying this potentially dangerous cargo. david? >> david kerley at reagan national for us. david, thank you. we turn now to a stunning medical error. a new mom who says she thought her newborn was being taken for a routine checkup. instead, he was taken into surgery, the doctor operating on the wrong newborn. abc's steve osunsami asking, how does this happen? >> hi there, buddy! >> reporter: doctors call what happened to this newborn baby in tennessee a "never event," something that should never happen. but this past december, after jennifer melton gave birth to her healthy son, she says the staff at university medical center in lebanon, tennessee, took baby nate away for what was supposed to be a physical. >> at that point, the nurse started to mention the procedure that had been performed on him. >> reporter: when they brought the baby back, the parents say they learned there was a terrible mistake. a doctor had performed a
surgical procedure meant for a different child. >> at that point, i began to cry hysterically. essentially, they took our child, who was 100% healthy, and just took him out of the nursery and cut his mouth. >> reporter: the family gave us these medical records that show it was a frenulectomy, where they cut underneath the tongue so it moves better for children having trouble nursing. >> there is no excuse for operating on the wrong baby. none. >> reporter: in statement tonight, the hospital says it can't comment on the case, because of privacy laws, but says they "take seriously any concerns brought to our attention." the family's lawyer tells us the doctor did apologize, but says the hospital still billed them for the procedure. david? >> that's incredible. steve osunsami tonight. steve, thanks. there is still much more ahead on "world news tonight" this wednesday. stolen social security numbers, more than 400,000 of them, used to try to claim tax refunds. and we'll have late developments. also, the consumer headline about your credit cards tonight. fees you don't need to be
