to cruz. not surprisingly cruz has responded and pebed a new word. >> it is no surprise that donald is throwing yet a another temper tantrum and if you hike another trumper tantrum. and i understand that donald finds it very hard to lose. that he finds that very difficult for him. but the end of the day the iowa people spoke. >> trumper tantrum. i'm joined by nbc's tracy potts live in washington to hash out all of this for us. good morning tracy. >> wile we are watching this back and forth between ted cruz and donald trump keep your eye on marco rubio. just this morning, brand new poll in boston says marco rubio is on the move now number two in that poll in new hampshire. we are also watching the democrats where bernie sanders calls himself the underdog but the number s show different. >> tonight's debate is hillary clinton's last chance to take on
bernie sanders face to face before new hampshire votes tuesday. >> if it is about our records, hey i'm going to win by a landslide on tuesday. >> sanders has a double digit lead here. he's hammering clinton on her six-figure speeches. >> i do not know any progressive who has a super pac and takes $15 million from wall street. that is just not progressive. >> her response. >> i don't know, that's what they offered. >> donald trump claimed he could have won iowa if ted cruz hadn't sent out questionable mailers and rumors that ben carson is droup dropping out. oh that voter fraud. they are brutal. they are a bunch of dishonest cookies. >> i wake up and laugh at the

nbc's chris palone has more. >> the sexual assault case against bill cosby moves forward. a pennsylvania judge rules there was no agreement between prosecutors and cosby not to press criminal charges against him. it stems from a 2004 incident in which cosby is accused of sexual assault by an associate named andrea constand. the decision after a second straight day of arguments and testimony. his long time attorney john schmidt took the stand first telling the judge he believed that montgomery county district attorney's 2005 decision not to prosecute was irrevocable. the da admitted there was no agreement -- tuesday caster himself testified that when he decided cosby wouldn't be charged he meant that none of
his successors would president cosby either. kevin steele said no such agreement existed. smith said if the threat of criminal charges loomed cosby never would have testified in a 2007 civil suit against him. in the transcript admitting to giving pills and wine among other things gave the newly elected steel enough evidence. the judge told lawyers he couldn't find any case law which matches the scenario playing out in the cosby case instead forging out on his own. the prosecution continues. nbc news are norristown pennsylvania. >> and cosby has said that sex with constand was consensual. he has denied all allegations of sexual misconduct. >> florida governor rick scott declared a health emergency in four counties amid fears of the

>> the moments after an explosion ripped a hole in the cabin of a commercial airliner. oxygen masks flapping. people on board claim a burning man was sucked out. while most passengers walk safely away. >> i heard a big bang and smoke erupted. we couldn't see anything for a few seconds. >> experts are studying the images for crews. >> it is evidence from the pictures that the explosion or the failure of that fuselage happened from inside out. that means that it looks like like it originated inside the cabin and blew the structure toward. >> could it have been a bomb in or a failure of the plane? united 747 from honolulu lost part of its fuselage before. and a southwest flight lost part of its roof. metal fatigue was blamed.
then there is attempted terrorism attempts. an official in somalia where this week's flight took off told nbc news no shrapnel has been found. the cause is unclear. experts say had this plane been flying at higher altitude or had the explosion occurred closer to the fuel tanks it might have suffered the same catastrophic fate. keer simmons nbc news london. >> punxsutawney phil may have predicted an early spring but on medicine lake nooer mip yams it was a brisk 22 degrees yesterday. and some daring sole s took
