7:07 am
this poll shows a surge for donald trump over the last couple of months. >> in march, hillary clinton had a commanding lead over trump. in fact, she's had a commanding lead back to september. in every poll we have done. that lead has now disappeared. he's pulled ahead of her within the margin of error. the other factor is the unpopularity of both of these candidates, donald trump viewed unfavorably by 37% of the votes. hillary clinton viewed ton favorably by 53% of the voters. this is the first time we have seen both major party candidates viewed unfavorably by a majority of voters. it may not surprise you, george, 44% say they would like to see a third party candidate. they're unhappy with both options. >> as you say this is the lowest numbers for both candidates in the history of our polling. one thing going on here, though, we have seen donald trump making strides in unifying the republican party now that ted cruz and john kasich dropped out. hillary clinton is still in a battle.
7:08 am
>> reporter: the most astounding number in this poll, george, was this -- look at this -- 20% of bernie sanders' supporters say they'll vote for donald trump if it comes down to hillary clinton or donald trump. one in five bernie sanders supporters saying they will vote for donald trump. the key thing for hillary she has to find a way to get the sanders' supporters onboard. >> jon karl, thank you very much. breaking news overnight, president obama in vietnam, announcing the u.s. will lift an arms embargo that's been placed for more than 40 years. abc's bob woodruff with the latest. good morning, bob. >> reporter: very big news today. no one was sure that president obama would do this. but he did. announcing that u.s. is ending the decades-long arms embargo. which until now made it illegal to sell lethal weapons to vietnam. the types of weapons that will
7:09 am
eventually be sold will be reviewed on a case by case bias. because of lingering concerns of vietnam's human rights record. why now? the president says it's the natural course for improving ties. but the u.s. and vietnam are also increasingly drawn together because of china and its growing aggressive actions in and over the south china sea. now, china has been building artificial islands not far from the vietnamese coast so president obama was warmly welcomed by the people here on the streets. most i met here in hanoi said americans are widely liked in this country. here you see the relationship between these former enemies is certainly improving. robin. >> it does appear that way. thank you. >> a bit of a jolt to see that. we'll move on now to the egyptair mystery. the egypt government has deployed a submarine to help find the wreckage. the black boxes that could reveal what brought the plane down. abc's matt gutman is on the scene in cairo. good morning, matt. >> reporter: good morning, george. as those ships scour for wreckage on land they're searching for answers.
7:10 am
here at egyptair they're trying to determine whether or not a mechanical error brought down that plane. and poring through surveillance video trying to see if a bomb or bomber made it onboard. this morning, egyptian ships salvaging the relics of flight 804 from the mediterranean surface. shredded handbags and shoes, crushed seats and paneling. meantime, a french ship and an egyptian sub have been sent to scour the seabed for the bulk of the plane wreckage. abc news has learned that the search area is massive, about 5,000 square miles about the size of the state of connecticut. from above the pentagon said its planes have detected 100 pieces of debris. we now know after the pilot's upbeat good night. to the tower last thursday morning. >> thank you so much, good night. >> reporter: the plane's data transmission system, known as acars.
7:11 am
began sending warning messages to the pilots and ground facilities. one reads smoke, lavatory and i've i don't know -- the alert indicating a possible fire right under the cockpit. >> one thing we don't know if there was smoke and fire is how it got started. it's still possible this could still be are terrorist act. something that exploded in the airplane. >> hundreds here in cairo page tribute to the lives lost. this morning, egyptian officials telling us their focus is recovering the bodies and those all-important black boxes. is egypt going to ask for additional outside help in order to locate them? >> if it's necessary we will do that. >> reporter: now, egyptian officials say they're looking for those black boxes but they may need some extra help. one french ship patrolling that area. half the size of lake erie but two u.s. companies have reportedly volunteered to help in that search. >> matt, thanks very much. let's get more from our aviation contributor, steve ganyard. thanks for joining us this
7:12 am
morning. these black boxes could provide the answers but necessarily. >> yeah, george, one of the things that we're concerned about, two independent sources of data, acars, both stopped at the exact same instance. there's a concern here if there was a total electrical fire, some of that data that was supposed to transmitted to the black boxes might have been cut off. >> what could we learn from the other debris? >> we have debris that's on the surface and the debris on the bottom of the ocean. on the surface, things that are light, seat cushions. pieces of plastic. the real clues will be with the bulk of the airplane that might show how the metal was broken, explosions residue. these sorts of things. >> the possibility of terrorist attack, but if it's a mechanical failure, there's a real danger there. this plane flying all over the
7:13 am
world. >> one of the most ubiquitous airlines. it's a great airplane. very reliable and very safe. one way or another, we have to figure out if it's a terrorist attack we have to address that. if it's a problem with the airplane that has to be addressed. the investigation is important really to the whole world. >> steve ganyard, thanks very much. let's go to amy with the other top stories. major military operation in iraq. >> more than 20,000 troops launched a fight to retake the city of fallujah from isis. residents were told to evacuate or stay in their homes or wave a white flag. already today, iraqi forces are reporting progress, sweeping through the outskirts of that city which is one of two remaining isis strong holds in iraq. a man accused of gunning down a massachusetts police officer in a traffic stop has now been killed in a shootout. they shot him after he fired at them as he searched an apartment.
