7:07 am
his eligibility. >> he doesn't have the right to serve as president or run as president. he was born in canada. i will bring the l lsuit if he doesn't apologize. >> reporter: cruz laughing it off, saying donald has lost it. >> this is the most rattled i have seen. >> we are not in grade school where you say, liar, liar, pants on fire and not respond to the subject. >> reporter: the front runner also went after the republican national committee, accusing them of stacking debate audiences with special interests. seeming once again to not rule out a third-party run, going against the gop pledge. >> i signed a pledge. but it's a double-edge pledge. as far as i'm concerned, they're in default of their pledge. >> thanks to brother for giving us something to do today, something important. >> reporter: the last republican to hold the oval office, george w. bush, joined brother jeb on the campaign trail for the first time. the formerresident repeatedly dismissed the party's front runner without calling out donald trump by name.
7:08 am
strongest person usually isn't the loudest one in the room. >> reporter: 43 arguing real strength is not empty rhetoric or bluster. >> we don't need someone in the oval office who mirrors and inflames our anger and frustration. we need someone whcan fix the problems that cause our anger and frustration, and that's jeb bush. >> reporter: hours before trump attacked w. over the iraq war and 9/11. >> the world trade center came down during hihireign. it was like, you know, he was the top. >> reporter: jeb had his big brother's back. >> he didn't know 9/11 would happen but he rolled up his sleeves, inspired us and kept t safe. >> our latest surveymonkey, nbc online poll, shows 56% of republicans nationally believe donana trump will be their party's nominee. that number is up 14 points in the last week.
7:09 am
>> peter alexander, thank you. let'u bring in chuck todd, nbc's political director and moderator of "meet the press." good morning. >> good morning. >> the road to the nomination goes through south carolina. it has a reputation for being a slugfest and it's not t disappointing.g. what do you make of this latest back and forth between donald trump and ted cruz? trump suggesting he might sue cruz. even dangling the notion of third-party run, threatening the rnc. >> he is a little bit. i think what he's trying to do is keep cruz from getting any momentum. look, in south carolina, it appears to be a two-person race. the winner between trump or cruz, assuming t ty are battling for first, then the winner will have won 2 of the first 3 and will be the front runner and favorite going forward. that's why you see, basically, trump pulling out all the stops and cruz pulling out all the stops. i can tell you this, savannah, the threat of the lawsuit, he $%
7:10 am
if he files against -- files with an election law clerk and says, hey, you shouldn't put cruz's name on the ballot, it's hurting me, that is a way for him to have standing with a lawsuit. by the way, the other part of the south carolina, there's two primaries. the second primary is the battle for third place between rubio and bush. >> let's talk about this, chuck. we haven't seen a lot of data or polling from south carolina a since the debate on saturday. trump has the double digit lead. cruz in second. all eyes, maybe, on third. is that still where it stands now? >> i think it's where it stands. look, nobody is quite sure how mumu damage did trump do to himself with the attacks on george w. bush. he is pretty popular in south carolina. there's chatter that he hurt himself. if he did by a few points, he still had a lead. i think that, you know, all of us are not making a living this year t ting to predict the demise of donald trump. >> chuck todd, thanks. stick around for your take on the democrats in a moment. speaking of, hillary clinton will deliver a major speech on race in new york city today. bernie sanders heads to south carolina and georgia.
7:11 am
next caucus in nevada, and that's where we find kristen welker. good morning. >> carson, good morning. our latest nbc news surveymonkey online poll shows clinton maintaining her national lead over sanders, 50% to 40%. the race is tighter in states like nevada. she will be courting african-american voters today with the speech of race. it comes after a busy day of campaigning here in the reno area. >> i love being here. >> reporter: in nevada, hillary clinton is trying to avoid another upset. >> i want to break down all the barriers that stand in the way of americans succeeding. >> reporter: it was this moment that got everyone's attention. >> and the dog, if it's not true, he's going to bark. >> repororr: when she recalled a decades-old political ad that featured a dog that barked when someone lied, arguing the same rules should apply to republicans. >> oh, the great recession was
7:12 am
bark, bark, you know? >> reporter: this as her family fanned out in key states on sunday. chelsea stumped in ohio and bill clinton in florida. >> the republican party rewarded the tea party. just tell people what they want to hear. it's going on now in our party. >> reporter: sanders brushed aside clintons' criticisms. in michigan on monday, he ramped up his oueach to african-americans, a group he struggled d work over. >> it's working people standing up and fighting. what is the civil rights movement about? >> reporter: after meeting with the families impacted by the flint water crisis, sanders demanded change. >> if we can rebuild v vlages in iraq and afghanistan, we can damn well rebuild flint, michigan. >> clion's address on race dubbed breaking down barriers
7:13 am
senator sanders will be courting black voters today. he'll be introduced at a prayer breakfast today by danny glover, who will also join him at a rally in atlanta later tonight. savannah, caon. >> thanks. chuck is still with us. let's talk about the democrats. nevada's caucus on saturday. caucuses, harder to predict for pollsters. when you look at the race and the body language, who looks confident and who looks nervous? >> i canell you this, the clinton campaign seems nervous and the sanders campaign seems confident at this point. this is clearly fairly close. they've both dumpea lot of money in here. this is actually though a must-win for sanders. here's why. there is this idea he can't win in states that are more diverse. nevada is basically 60/40 white to non-white, at least the way the democratic caucus is going to turn out. a narrow loss and the clinton campaign can breathe a sigh of relief, knowing south carolina
7:14 am
there, too. a loss here, a sanders victory here, puts more pressure on clinton. then the questions are, oh, maybe sanders can win minority votes. then the pressure on her to win south carolina is as great as it's been in any state so far. >> chuck, do you see a shift in the way hillary clinton is framing this race, with more of a contrast, going right after sanders recently? >> i do, i do. if you listen to bill clinton and chelsea clinton and hillary clinton, they're all trying to make this a referendum on sanders. they know if it's a referendum on hillary clinton, she won't do as well with democratic voters. put the focus on sanders. they think the more attention given to his ideas, his potential tax hikes, lack of foreign policy knowledge, suddenly, it'll give pauseo democratic voters and help her. she's always b bn better when she gets to frame an alternative. that's what they're trying to do now. >> quickly, chuck, this is
7:15 am
bones of your first answer, when you say the clinton campaign is acting nervous, what do you mean by that? by the fact they're spending so much time in nevada? >> they realize that it's a -- that lososg again, and suddenly you could make an argument that essentially, sanders won the first three contests. the iowa victory, every day that goes by, there's questions about how big was that victory and did out because of the way the counting process is? that's what i mean by that. they're very nervous. the idea of losing back to back. to lose the first state they faced off against each other that isn't an overly white state, that's whatatakes them so nervous. that's why, if they can win now, they put away a lot of questions about r. >> chuck todd, thanks so much. now to the nation's capital who should replace justice antonin scalia. andrea mitchell has more on that looming battle. good morning. >> good morning, savannah. the battle to replace antonin scalia is reshaping that 2016
7:16 am
with the republican presidential candidates taking a hard line against confirming anyone that president obama nominates. no matter how moderate. >> reporter: it is the one issue on which all the republican candidates agree. no one nominated by barack obama should be considered for the supreme court. >> thehealance of the constitution is at stake. >> the republicans shouldn't allow it to happen. >> we're one justice away from a radical five-justice, left-wing majority. >> reporter: for ted cruz, it's personal. he clerked for the high court, argued before it and knew scalia well. within hours of the justice's death, the battle lines were drawn. republican senate leaders saying they won't confirm any obama nominee to the higcourt. democrats firing back. >> it's unprecedented. it's pure politics. the supreme court, of all places, should not be tied up in politics. >> reporter: the president in california hosting an asian
7:17 am
that he is not backing down. >> those responsibilities described in the constitution are ironclad. there are no caveats. the constitution doesn't include exceptions for election years or the president's last term in office. >> reporter: hillary clinton weighing in, unleashing a flurry of tweets overnight, aimed at gop senators. hillary tweeting, fill this vacancy. potus will do his jojo do yours. the scalia succession fight now also a campaign issue for the democrats. >> last time i looked, the constitution didn't have a parenthesis. the president nominates, parentntsis, nominates except in an election year. that's not the way our system works. >> the president has a working list, including several candidates who have been supported unanimously for lower courts by republicans. if the republicans won't even consider moderate choices, the president could fire up his own democratic base, nominating a minority.
7:18 am
