6:00 pm
and many watching the major storm now bearing down from the west, hitting iowa tonight before heading east. the voters hoping to beat it, and the candidates hoping to beat each other. "world news tonight" begins now. good evening. as we come on the air in the west tonight, we are live from iowa, where the election of the next president has begun. the iowa caucuses, of course, under way at this hour, and here's what we know as we come on. for the democrats, we are not projecting a winner at this point, but based on early estimates from entrance polls, so far, it looks like secretary clinton has a slight lead in initial preferences, followed by bernie sanders. and for the republicans, we are not projecting a winner at this point, but based on early estimates, again, from those entrance polls, so far, it looks like donald trump has a slight lead, followed by senators ted cruz and marco rubio, now vying for second tonight.
6:01 pm
on both sides, very close. in fact, the polls showing the three top republicans heading into the caucuses, donald trump, senators ted cruz and marco rubio, and even trump, known for his bravado, admitting he's a little bit nervous. hillary clinton and bernie sanders in a dead heat, both trading places atop the iowa polls in recent days. and you are looking at a live feed tonight from a republican caucus site in des moines. donald trump and his wife melania are there tonight. they must be happy with the early projections. and here, a very crowded democratic caucus site, also, right here in iowa's capital. it's your voice, your vote, and abc's powerhouse political team on it all tonight. abc's tom llamas leading us off on the republican side. donald trump and his wife melania, and their final push. >> reporter: tonight, donald trump telling his supporters, it's now or never. accepting no excuses. >> if you're in bed, if you're sick, if you can't walk, if the doctor says you cannot leave -- i don't care. get out of bed and caucus. you got to do it. >> reporter: his prediction?
6:02 pm
>> make sure you all caucus tonight. we're going to have a tremendous victory. we love you. thank you very much. >> reporter: trump's final iowa strategy, run just like his company. a family affair. wife melania by his side in republican red. >> the man who will work for you, who will work with you, and who is that man? >> trump! >> i agree. he is the man. >> reporter: daughter ivanka stars in a how-to caucus video. >> just write down the name trump and you are done. and that's it. very exciting. >> reporter: and tonight, she's attending a caucus to speak for the campaign. no pressure from her dad. >> and if she doesn't do a good job, i'll say, ivanka, you're fired. >> reporter: even trump's sons in on the action. sounding a bit more cautious than their father. >> and the love we felt is incredible. listen, people have to get out the vote, right? >> reporter: joining the family for this final push? trump's star endorser, sarah palin.
6:03 pm
the problem? >> reporter: palin telling me, she's confident. so governor palin, any predictions for today? >> you know, i think for the first time, i'm going to say, we can believe the polls. usually, i say that polls are only good for strippers and cross country skiers, but this time, i think the polls are right. >> reporter: trump's toughest competition, senator ted cruz, hitting a goal today. campaigning in all of iowa's 99 counties. cruz has made more than 120 stops in iowa, compared to trump's 39. >> and i got to tell you, this race right now, it's neck and neck. it's all about turnout. >> reporter: cruz saying trump doesn't deserve to win. >> he already bellowed, "how stupid are the people of iowa?" just yesterday, he said, if he doesn't win iowa, then everything here was a big, fat and very expensive waste of time. >> reporter: senator marco rubio hoping for at least a strong third place finish. spending the final hours with family, as well. even shopping for toys with his children. >> now you're undecided.
6:04 pm
>> reporter: palin tells me she'd be comfortable supporting either senator in november. >> in a heartbeat, yep. i would support whichever gop candidate rises to the top. just got to do your basic abcs on this. abc -- anybody but clinton. >> tom is with us live in iowa. tom, as you know, we're not projecting a winner, but at this point, based honeston estimates of early attendees, so far, it looks like trump with a slight lead. followed by cruz and rubio, now vying for second place. some late momentum possibly for marco rubio. >> reporter: that's right, david. you know, earlier, we had heard the rubio crowds were getting bigger and bigger. but beyond that, sources inside the rubio campaign and the cruz campaign both telling us this was really a three-way race between trump, rubio and cruz, that it was much closer than people were predicting. but something else, david, that we're hearing about overflow
6:05 pm
donald trump. those could be those first-time caucus-goers that love him so much. david? >> yeah, perhaps turning all of that energy and enthusiasm into votes. tom llamas. we'll see how this plays out. more results on the democratic side tonight, as well. women, moderates, main line democrats and fans of president obama's policies are boosting hillary clinton. while bernie sanders is courting very liberal caucus-goers, independents, young people and first-time participants. hillary clinton, of course, does not want a repeat of iowa eight years ago. her stunning loss then. and bernie sanders needs a win here to keep momentum going beyond new hampshire. of course, tonight, the big question -- can he turn the enthusiasm into votes for first-time caucus-goers? abc's cecilia vega takes us inside the ground game on both sides tonight. >> reporter: hillary clinton's final push, energizing volunteers first thing this morning, doughnuts in hand. >> i'm so excited! thank you for everything you're doing. >> reporter: hoping to avoid another upset.
6:06 pm
>> we're going to win! >> thank you, senator. >> reporter: bernie sanders on the same mission. >> we will win tonight, if the voter turnout is high. >> reporter: telling his supporters what they need to pull off a win. >> let's go get them. thank you. >> reporter: today, for the candidates, nothing left to do but trust their armies of volunteers. this is how close this race is. two campaigns, one building. today, we paid a visit to both campaigns. knock, knock. >> hi! welcome. >> reporter: hi. i guess this is the hillary office. inside, frantic last-minute calls to get supporters out to caucus. >> can we count on your support for hillary? fantastic. that's great to hear. >> for a lot of us, this is the big moment. >> reporter: are you nervous at all? >> no. i'm just really excited. >> reporter: just down the hall, bernie sanders' campaign. welcome to the revolution. almost empty. everyone out, knocking on doors, trying to convince people to show up tonight.
6:07 pm
>> oh, it's in the bag. >> reporter: it's in the bag. >> it's done. >> reporter: it's done. confidence. clinton confident, too. her whole family right there for her final rally. >> hello, des moines! >> reporter: they remember her devastating iowa loss in 2008. >> i congratulate senator obama and senator edwards. >> reporter: this time, clinton says, she's learned her lesson. >> i think that i have a much better organization, to be just really clear about it. i think i'm a better candidate. >> cecilia with us live tonight. and cecilia, you pointed out there, their campaign offices right across the hall from one another. imagine the awkward conversations in the hallway. but as you've been reporting all week long, this is really coming down to who has the better ground game. >> reporter: that's right, david. those door knocks, all of those phone calls, that is what's going to matter here tonight. i'm in the room where hillary clinton is going to hold what she's calling her victory party. we shall see. we are hearing from democratic sources out there that there are
6:08 pm
the state, long lines at colleges, that bodes very well for bernie sanders. of course, he needs those record turnout that we saw back in 2008 for barack obama. we shall see if that happens. >> see if he can approach that 2008 level. all right, cecilia vega live with us tonight, as well. thank you. let's get right to george stephanopoulos, leading our coverage of the caucus results tonight. i know you've been pouring through the preliminary entrance poll results. what are you seeing on the republican side? >> when you look at that, they asked the question, are you looking for somebody experienced in politics or a political outsider? put the numbers up right there. we're going to see that 51% are looking for an outsider versus someone with political experience and look at how that breaks down. big-time for donald trump. 49% for him. 16% for ben carson. ted cruz, down at 16%. they broke so heavily for donald trump. and then, on the democratic side, david, you know, we were talking so much about the first-time voters. but look at this. 55% of the caucus-goers tonight on the democratic side said they have attended a caucus before. and, again, they broke hard for hillary clinton.
6:09 pm
60% to 33%. martin o'malley down at 4%. so, there are clues now to why both donald trump and hillary clinton have slight leads as we go into this night. >> all right, and as soon as we learn more, george, i know you'll be breaking in. we'll be joining you there shortly. in the meantime, the entire team standing by with the results. and in the final hours of this campaign here in iowa, the candidates, of course, delivering their closing arguments. every minute of their time is planned, except for the ones where they try to take a break, grab a bite for themselves. but then, of course, our jon karl happens to be sitting a table away. here's what happened. >> reporter: go out for coffee in des moines on caucus day, and there's a good chance you'll run into somebody running for president. how's it going? >> great. taking a little break. getting refueled. >> reporter: you're like a regular here. >> i am, actually. love this place. >> reporter: outside, you might find somebody who already was president. go out for a walk here in des moines and you run into bill clinton. mr. president, how does it feel? is she going to pull it off? >> great. >> reporter: some candidates in
6:10 pm
pulling up the stakes. but you're going to be at a town hall meeting in new hampshire by the time this is going on. >> when this is going on, i'll be at my second town hall meeting in new hampshire. >> reporter: but tonight, as many as 400,000 iowans are gathering at some 2,000 caucus locations across the state. piling into schools, senior centers and churches. in malcom, iowa -- population 277 -- the caucus is in a grain elevator. in hayesville, republicans will caucus in a gun shop. and off a dirt road in boone county, the democratic caucus -- rural precinct number 3 -- is in the living room of mary and gary weaver. >> we're so rural, we're really doing it almost as a convenience for ourselves and our neighbors. >> reporter: so, today, mary baked for her caucus guests, treating them, she says, to some iowa nice. >> the weavers' living room, the place to be tonight. and jon, that's what we love about iowa. the living rooms, the schools, so many diving into this tonight. and we're now seeing the initial results coming in,
6:11 pm
long lines on both the democratic side and the republican side. >> reporter: and i've heard from several republican operatives that they are seeing huge turnout around the state, including, david, big turnout among people who have never caucused before. of course, if that holds, that would be very good news for donald trump. he is counting on those voters to put him over the top. >> would be good news, indeed. jon karl standing by with us all night long. jon, thank you. and though caucus-goers are finally gathering as we're on the air, the debate within families and among neighbors here in iowa began long before. so many telling me today, they take their first in the nation role very seriously here. as the iowa caucuses are held tonight, it's likely some of the debate started here. you see the old tractors out front. the machine shed is part of the iowa caucus tradition. the machine shed restaurant in des moines, among the many morning stops on the big day. so, every four years, iowa is the focus of the country. what do you think of that? >> it's good and bad. >> reporter: their phone hasn't stopped ringing. but it doesn't stop them.
6:12 pm
a lot of times, they'll say, oh, idaho. you know, and -- >> reporter: it's iowa. >> it's iowa. >> the potato people, right? >> reporter: idaho's great, too, but let's claim your state. >> it is. it really is. >> reporter: melinda is ready for tonight. daughter izzy by her side. do you know what today is? what's today? >> today's the caucus. >> reporter: what's today? >> the caucus. >> reporter: the caucus day. thanks, mom. melinda has an official role organizing tonight. every four years, the country is studying the hawkeye state. >> right. >> reporter: how important is that to you guys? >> it's very important to us, yeah. we love our first in the nation status. >> reporter: how are you doing over here? and meredith with her family, helping her run her precinct tonight. though many are still undecided. >> they get really passionate and they even stress about making the decision, like my friends who are undecided, or -- >> reporter: until when? still? >> yeah, i still have friends that are undecided. >> reporter: they may be undecided going in, but the order here tomorrow morning, easy to predict. the famous cinnamon roll.
6:13 pm
>> this is, yes. >> reporter: made in america at the machine shed since 1978. what's special about these? >> they're the best cinnamon rolls ever. >> reporter: no campaigning needed. it's already been decided. >> no, no. it's already been decided. >> the cinnamon roll about the only thing we can predict with certainty at this point. the entire powerhouse political team standing by, as i mentioned, with continuing coverage throughout the night, and we'll break in live as soon as we know more. and then, we are all onto new hampshire at the next big debate after iowa, and days before the new hampshire primary. join martha raddatz and me as we moderate the republican debate next saturday night, right here on abc. we're going to take a break here from the political storm hitting tonight here to the other one. a major winter storm set to hit right here in iowa overnight and then move east. it all has alerts from california up to michigan, in fact. already powerful storms knocking over this massive tree near san diego. the driver of that car there did not survive. snow and ice causing a
