7:03 am
voters forget his big brother. >> today's "eye opener" was presented by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." nevada republicans will have their say today in the presidential race. four of the five gop candidates will be there today. they are racing to pick up last-minute support before tonight's caucuses. donald trump remains a heavy favorite. he leads the latest poll with 45% support. marco rubio is far behind with a narrow lead over ted cruz for second place. >> the cruz campaign is under heavy pressure after the candidate fired his chief spokesman. dean reynolds is in las vegas where trump and rubio are going after cruz. dean, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, the three candidates here have been hurling accusations and insults with such ferocity
7:04 am
all fighting for first place. but apparently only one has a realistic shot. >> we're going to win. go out tomorrow and vote! >> donald trump held a raucous caucus rally monday night. >> do you have a little protester? get him the hell out. >> reporter: responding to several interruptions from protesters. >> i'd like to punch him in the face, i'll tel you. >> reporter: by expressing nostalgia for a less gentile day. >> you know what they used to do to guys like that? they'd be carried out on a stretcher, folks. >> reporter: despite a sizeable lead, trump is not letting up on his rivals, particularly ted cruz for his campaign tactics. >> this guy cruz lies more than any human being i've ever dealt with. and he holds up the bible and he lies. this guy is sick. there's something wrong with
7:05 am
>> reporter: accusationing s of underhandedness have dogged the cruz campaign for weeks. >> every single day something comes out of the cruz campaign that's deceptive and untrue. >> reporter: on monday he moved fallout. >> this morning i asked for rick tyler's resignation. >> reporter: forcing out his communications director after he shared this misleading video on questioning ploub marco rubio's faith. >> it turned out the news story he sent around was false. but even if it was true, we are not a campaign that's going to question the faith of another candidate. >> reporter: and on the stump the florida senator stressed his own electability over trump. >> i don't care how much you think they're funny or how interesting they sound, if we nominate someone that 40% to 50% of our party can't stand, we are going to lose. >> reporter: now, responding to a question last night, senator cruz said he would hunt down and deport millions of illegal
7:06 am
into this country. it's a direct appeal to the republican base which he desperately needs to arouse. >> thanks, dean. cbs news political director john dickerson is in washington. john, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> a lot of specifics and generals. does all these questions about trust and problems with his campaign spokesman hurt ted cruz significantly? >> well, yes. i mean because it gets in the way of what he's trying to say and he's a little on his heels coming out of south carolina. that was a state that had an electorate that set up very nicely for ted cruz and he still lost by 11 points to donald trump. so he needs to do something to change his approach at donald trump. just as he's trying to do that, he's dealing with these accusations. obviously there's an accumulation of trouble from these accusations or he wouldn't have had to fire his top spokesperson. this isn't just this one-off, it's because there have been a number of accusations.
7:07 am
his sound bite there that donald trump can't get elected because he only has 30% or 40% support from the republican party. but is trump becoming unstoppable and therefore the party either does something now or it's too late? >> rubio is talking about there's a ceiling on donald trump's support. he can never get higher than a certain point. but that just may not be true in the end. there may be a bandwagon effect that as trump wins, people wanting to be with a winner. so marco rubio has to make that case. but as we've seen donald trump, you've got to work a little bit harder to knock him back. so for marco rubio, he's going to have to do more than just say candidate. >> john, there are reports that the gop establishment is urging john kasich to drop out. do you think that's true? >> well, there has been -- you know, the question is who is the establishment and do they have any power. there are some people who would donald trump and there's a little bit of that noise, but i
7:08 am
kasich out of the race. i think that's going to have to happen when results come in. >> and how important is second place tonight for marco rubio and ted cruz? >> it's important to be able to say that i am the alternative to donald trump, but it has to be a close second. we'll just have to see if that actually happens. >> all right, john dickerson, thank you. we'll talk to you a little bit later on. hillary clinton and bernie sanders will appear at a town hall tonight in south carolina. that's ahead of saturday's democratic party. both candidates won 51 delegates from iowa, new hampshire and nevada but hillary clinton has won nearly all of the super delegates so far. when you put them together, she has 502 to 70 for bernie sanders. the vermont senator is already looking ahead to super tuesday. he rallied with supporters yesterday in massachusetts. one of the 11 states voting a week from today. our digital network, cbsn, will have live coverage tonight the nevada republican caucuses.

7:13 am
forcing a complete judicial process. apple is saying that when the court goes to the supreme court, i don't think they're saying they'll defy the government. >> no, they're not. but they're saying that riot now ght now they're not going to do it so it will be appealed to the district court and the supreme court. what would you do if you were the executive? would you do the same thing that tim cook has done? >> i think they're saying, hey, as a society we think this discussion of safeguards is important. i don't disagree with that. >> nobody disagrees with that. >> at the end of the day we want a government that has this ability and we trust it to use that on our behalf. >> max legend who you and i both know and admire. this is what i'm trying to get you to say one side or the other. apple should offer the fbi the

7:15 am
this is going to be a huge fight about one thing for sure. a lot of these arguments you have heard before. they were just made by the other side and republicans did get that big boost yesterday from someone you might not expect. >> action on a supreme court nomination must be put off until after the election campaign is over. >> reporter: that's then senate judiciary committee chairman joe biden who in 1992 suggested he was just fine with blocking any election year nominees when president george h.w. bush was in the white house. >> president bush should consider following the practice of a majority of his predecessors and not, and not name a nominee until after the november election is completed. >> reporter: the current judiciary committee chair, republican chuck grassley, immediately agreed to what he called the biden rules. >> in his heart of hearts, he

7:18 am
secondly, the syrian army says it's going to carry on fighting any group it designates as terrorists, which basically gives them free rein to attack anybody they want, including groups backed by the united states. thirdly, there's no provision, at least yet, for observers. realistically it's far too late in the game to get credible monitors out in the field, especially on such a dangerous battlefield. i've just been talking to a syrian general who tells me that he has personally no appetite for a cease-fire. he says his men are on a roll, they're winning ground and they don't want to lose momentum, and that is an opinion you'll hear reflected among civilians in any of the pro asset enclaves here in damascus. >> thank you, elizabeth palmer in damascus. the pentagon is expected to submit a plan to congress on how to close the guantanamo bay prison in cuba.

it is tuesday, february 23rd, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there is more real news ahead, including a surprising look at millennial voters. why they don't like corporations or washington, but they're looking forward to the future. huh? first, here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> the three candidates here. >> all fighting for first place. but apparently only one has a realistic shot. >> just vote, just vote because people say i don't want to give caucus? nobody knows what it means. >> how important is second place tonight?
8:01 am
say that i am the alternative to donald trump. >> it took a judge nearly ten minutes to read all the charges against dalton, to which dalton did not enter a plea. >> this is going to be a huge fight but one thing is for sure, a lot of these arguments you have heard before. >> the striking thing about this plan is the size of the loopholes. for a start, the syrian army said it will continue to fight isis. >> he didn't want to give a specific answer to that. >> he did not but he wanted to see it go through the process first. >> i heard that. you asked it very directly. >> and numerous times. >> fox news on thursday praised home improvement star tim allen for being, quote, very brave and coming out of the closet as being a republican, unlike his cowardly neighbor, wilson. where do you stand? >> this morning's "eye opener" at 8:00 is presented by nationwide.
8:02 am
king and norah o'donnell. donald trump leads the polls for tonight's nevada republican caucuses. the race there is getting increasingly bitter. ted cruz shook up his campaign monday, forcing communications director rick tyler to resign. tyler had shared a video on social media. it falsely showed marco rubio dismissing the bible. rubio said the video was nothing new for the cruz campaign. >> it's incredibly disturbing. you guys have to be seeing this. now it's every single day something comes out of the cruz campaign that's deceptive and untrue and in this case goes after my faith. >> ted cruz says that he holds his campaign to the highest standards of integrity. he said his spokesman made a grave error in judgment. cruz also spoke with immigration last night. he said he plans to go further than his rivals. >> we will know the day someone overstays their visa and be able to send law enforcement to apprehend them and send them home. the biggest difference, bill, between donald trump and marco
8:03 am
donald trump and marco rubio would allow those 12 million people to become u.s. citizens. donald said once he deports them, he'll let them back in as sit zeb citizen citizens. i will not. >> donald trump said he'll leave a door for deportees to come back legally but he tweeted this last night. ted cruz said that illegals sent out of country by my administration would come right back at citizens. another lie, crazy. >> apple is ramping up its legal battle with the government over unlocking the iphone belonging to one of the san bernardino terrorists. the company has tapped renowned attorney ted olson, one of the country's most successful trial and supreme court lawyers. olson is also the former solicitor general of the united states. he's with us from washington. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> so everybody is talking about security versus privacy here. security is the argument of the
8:04 am
but people are now suggesting strongly that you can make this a one-time case. you heard it on the program this morning. make it a one-time case. apple would do it in the privacy of their own lab. you're not offering a master key to all iphone phones. >> that's a totally bogus argument and the government knows it and their surrogates know it. there's nothing to stop this government or another government from doing the same thing tomorrow or the next day or next week. in fact, in answer to you, charlie, i think it was last week the district attorney of new york said that he had 175 phones that he was anxious to try this same technique to get into those phones to require apple to redesign its product to break down its security, to abuse the trust of its tens of millions of people who have invested their faith and trust in apple. the government is going to do this again and again and the
8:05 am
once, just violate your principles this one time, you'll never hear from us again, it is totally bogus. >> why are you calling it violating your principles? apple has been cooperating with law enforcement for years. in fact the case that law enforcement is making today, including by john miller and the nypd chief, william bratton today, is that until 17 months ago apple had been cooperating with law enforcement, giving the key essentially to solve cases, the master key on drugs, kidnapping, murder and terrorism charges and there were no documented instances of this getting into the hands of hackers. so what has changed? why is apple making this new position? >> apple has cooperated in the past and apple has cooperated in connection with this case. what has happened here is that the government is not asking for the key to the cell phone, the government is asking for apple to design a new cell phone, use
8:06 am
systems that are built into this particular iphone to protect its security and protect the trust of tens of millions of its customers. it wants a different iphone. it wants it disabled a defective product so the government can get into it. so it is asking apple that the government can script its engineers to design a different flawed product so it can get into this phone. there's no stopping this foreign governments from using the same technique to get into cell phones over and over again throughout the world. it will break the system that apple carefully designed to protect the trust of its customers. >> why is that? because you think that every case now will be forcing apple to open up their iphone? >> sure, because -- >> you're saying somebody in china says, look, we have an issue -- the chinese government says we have an issue here, that will force apple to do the same thing to their phone that it did
8:07 am
>> well, sure, charlie. you asked that question of the district attorney in new york and he said i'm just anxious to use the technique again and again for 175 phones. what's to stop the u.s. attorney in milwaukee or the district attorney in chicago from doing the same thing? and if apple submits by designing a defective phone after it spent so much of its resources to develop a secure phone that would protect the privacy of its customers, then again. >> ted, with that legal argument, are you suggesting that every iphone that's not on the ios 8 operating system is a defective phone? absolutely not. that is -- the phone is very effective and it protects the security and trust and privacy of the people that own those phones and the government is trying to change that design. they're saying go in and redesign the phone so that we
8:08 am
unsecure phone. >> but we insist they say one time only. >> they say one time only, but are they saying we won't go in tomorrow -- in "the new york times" article by bratton and miller today in "the new york times" they say this is not just one case, they cite an example in new orleans where they same the same technique would be used. >> ted, let's think about the human life here for a second. john miller raised a really interesting point last week. he said apple is trying to protect its customers. what about the victims in san bernardino, in paris, who died with iphones in their pockets. they're your customers too. don't they have a right to live? and if apple has the opportunity to provide information that could prevent terrorist attacks, shouldn't they -- don't they have an obligation to those people as well? >> we have a constitution and we have civil liberties in this country. terrorists want to take that away from us by attacking the
8:09 am
apple is very sensitive to the concerns of terrorism, so am i. it is very, very, very important. but the civil liberties that are written into our constitution are what the terrorists want to take away from us. >> then as a citizen -- >> privacy, liberty and safety are very important to all of our citizens. if a government comes to you and says compromise your principles, compromise the constitutional stance that you're taking just for this one case or for the next case or for the next case, the terrorists have succeeded. so it's very, very important that we rout out terrorism and protect ourselves, but it's very important that we not forfeit our fundamental rights in doing so. >> ted, you have seen tragedy in your own life from terrorism. you know that if in fact information is in a phone that most american citizens that had to do with some kind of attack against america, most american citizens would like the government, the fbi, to have access to that information. and that's what it comes down
8:10 am
capacity of the u.s. government to thwart a terrorist attack. >> the capacity of the united states government legally and constitutionally to thwart terrorism attacks. i was in the justice department at 9/11 when that tragedy took place. time. we must fight terrorism and we must do everything we possibly can to use techniques to listen in on terrorists and find out what they're up to, but we must not violate that line that is our constitutional principles because if we do, we are not america anymore and the terrorists have succeeded. we must do everything we can but we must obey the law, we must obey the constitution, we must be faithful to our principles. >> ted olson, great to have you here this morning. thank you so much. thank you. >> thank you. an eye-opening survey

a father carrying his life on his back living without a human heart. >> this right here is a battery pack that pumps the air that goes through this tube and the artificial heart is right here. >> wow. >> coming up next, why the experts say a total artificial heart could become a better option than a heart transplant. morning." we'll be right back. pet moments are beautiful, then your eyes may see it differently. relieve both your itchy,z watery eyes and congestion.

in our "morning rounds" february is american heart month. each year more than 600,000 americans die of heart disease. that's one in every four deaths. heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. a growing number of people are now living with artificial hearts while waiting for a heart transplant. but ben tracy shows us how one day, a permanent fake heart may beat inside a person's chest and make donations unnecessary. >> there you go, there you go. now we're rocking and rolling. >> reporter: you wouldn't think there was anything wrong with lance white. >> yes!
8:17 am
that backpack, those tubes and that unusable sound. >> are you aware of that sound at all at this point? >> no. >> is that just white noise to you? >> it's white noise to me. when people tell me about it, i hear it. >> reporter: it's the sound of his heart beating. >> and the artificial heart is right here. >> reporter: well, not his heart exactly. the one he was born with had to be removed when he had heart failure at age 47. he now has a total artificial heart beating inside his body. >> do you feel any less human knowing that you're carrying around a machine that is pumping a fake heart inside your body? >> you do. in the beginning you do. if it stops, you know, i'm in trouble. i don't exist anymore. >> patients will have this backpack. >> reporter: this is what it looks like. two art efficient ventricles are implanted in the chest. they are attached to a set of tubes connected to an external battery carried around in a
8:18 am
it pumps about 130 bursts of air per minute, replicating a rapid heartbeat. that noise is always there. >> when you're as young as i am, you're like okay, i don't want to turn the switch off. i have a lot more life to live. i have young kids. i want to see them grow up and finish school and have kids. >> reporter: he's one of about 2,000 people worldwide who have heart. >> we put this in place because otherwise death would occur within 24 to 48 hours. >> reporter: dr. francisco aribia is a cardiac surgeon. he said the problem is the lack of donor hearts. as many as 100,000 people in the u.s. need new hearts but last year only about 4,000 made the wait list and little more than 2500 received a transplant. >> it's a matter of demand and supply. we use an artificial heart to give patient the time to be able to wait for the correct donor.
8:19 am
waiting for almost two years. >> i'm hoping this year will be my year. patience is a virtue. >> reporter: companies such as syy syn cardia or working on a heart for widespread use. it's no easy task. our hearts pump about 2,000 gallons of blood every day and service more than 60,000 miles of blood vessels. >> how much of a game-changer would it be to have an artificial heart that would be permanent? >> it we can develop a total artificial heart that is completely internal, that would be a true game-changer. >> reporter: lance will hopefully get a donor heart soon. he and his wife, lisa, want this load off his back. >> what's the first thing you want to do once he no longer has that backpack attached to him? >> i want to put a basketball in his hand and take him to the gym. >> because he hasn't been able
8:20 am
>> and that means a lot to him? >> it does. >> reporter: but lance has something else on his mind. >> i think more about wanting to meet the family if i'm ever allowed to do that of the person who was able to donate the heart and thank them and then let them see who i am and what they have done for me and my family. that's what i think about. that's what i think about. >> reporter: for "cbs this morning," ben tracy, los angeles. >> incredible. to think that that's the future. >> i believe one day he'll be able to go to the gym and they're going to make it so that that backpack will be so much smaller. it's interesting to see how it's all involved. >> or be inside of him. >> even better. it is a dog eat dog battle out there to be the most popular kid in the class. also known as the most popular breed. next, who came out on the very top? you're watching "cbs this morning." cbs "morning rounds" sponsored by silk.

8:33 am
>> are you surprised by the results? >> the one that surprised me the most is that 75% of these young people 18 to 26 think that their parents. only 25% of their parents think that their kids are going to do better than them. so obviously one generation is looking at the future completely incorrectly and i don't know who it is. you have now a situation where they believe that the country is failing but they're going to succeed. we've not had that situation. and the polling that's been done for the last 50 years, young people's attitudes, they have related themselves to where the country is going. now they believe that they're going to be okay, but not necessarily america. >> is it because they believe in themselves? >> they absolutely believe in themselves. and they have different priorities than their patients. work life balance matters to these people. they also truly prioritize personal freedom and opportunity more so than this collectivism.
