6:31 pm
cash. and, on thin ice. the lakeside parking lot that was actually the lake. the hazardous scene that drivers came back to, when their cars broke through the ice. good evening. thanks for joining us on this sunday. i'm tom llamas. tonight, a critical moment in the race for the white house. the new hampshire primary just two days away. and some of the candidates have to finish big or go home. republicans on the stage for last night's abc news debate in manchester. repeated blows to marco rubio, aiming to stop his momentum. that may have shielded donald trump from attacks, but it didn't stop him from attacking. even when the audience booed him. let's begin with david wright. >> i like marco rubio, and he's a smart person and a good guy, but he simply does not have the experience to be president of the united states.
6:32 pm
marco-mentum ran smack into chris christie. >> you have not been involved in a consequential decision where you had to be held accountable. you just simply haven't. >> reporter: marco rubio didn't exactly help himself. >> let's dispel with this fiction that barack obama doesn't know what he's doing. >> reporter: by getting stuck in his own talking points. >> this notion that barack obama doesn't know what he's doing. it's just not true. >> there it is. the memorized 25-second speech. there it is, everybody. >> reporter: trotting out the same well-practiced line four times. >> you're getting pounded for repeating that speech. >> well, look, we raised more money last night in the first hour of that debate than any other debate. >> reporter: today, rubio did his best to ignore the headlines. >> oh, you said the same thing three or four times. i'm gonna say it again. >> reporter: but, it was a red flag for some of the voters attending his event. >> marco should have been better prepared. >> he's a young senator just like obama was. i'm not so sure he's ready. >> reporter: so something like this raises questions for you.
6:33 pm
couldn't agree more. shiniest thing, we did that seven years ago. >> reporter: another headline last night, donald trump practically endorsed torture. >> i'd even bring back a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding. >> reporter: even using the word "medieval" last night and today on "this week." >> they chopped off heads. >> so we're going to chop off heads? beyond waterboarding. >> reporter: last night, trump seemed to enjoy torturing jeb bush. >> quiet. >> reporter: when donald trump shushed you, you looked like you wanted to deck him. fair to say? [ laughs ] >> don't shush me, man. we're running for president. >> reporter: today, trump was at it again. >> they booed me when i attacked poor, poor, poor jeb bush who brings out his mother because he needed help. he needed help.
6:34 pm
>> reporter: the oddest moment of the night? dr. ben carson missing his entrance cue, causing a bit of a traffic jam. >> i kept waiting to hear my name, and couldn't hear it. >> reporter: tonight, candidates take a brief break. but as you can see at rubio's super bowl por arty, a chance for a stump speech. but all of the candidates focused on their big gameday tuesday. rubio has to be hoping he didn't fumble too bad. >> david wright, thank you. rubio wasn't the only one with a lot on the line last night. jon karl joins me. jon, what affect do you think that debate will have on the race? >> well, rubio hopes it won't have much of an effect. he knows he ran right into a buzz saw named chris christie. his team hopes that because the super bowl is tonight, voters will be distracted and move on
6:35 pm
insofar as it hurts rubio, it is not necessarily chris christie that benefits. it may have helped john kasich. he was above the fray, with a positive message you could see resonating in new hampshire. >> jon, does trump get any type of boost going into the primary? >> it seems that trump solidified his front runner status tome. nobody really touched him. you saw jeb bush tried. but he seemed as confident as possible, even more confident. >> thank you. and the democrats, hillary clinton traveling to flint, michigan, standing with those suffering from the water crisis. and bernie sanders, all smiles in new hampshire, fresh off his comedy turn in new york. cecilia vega, following the democrats from the start.

today, feeling confident. the vermont senator, packing in the crowds, and packing in the punches. >> the most important foreign policy issue in the modern history of this country was the war in iraq. i was right on that issue. hillary clinton was wrong! [ cheers ] >> reporter: two days until new hampshire, voters make their decision and it is now a fight to the finish. but the real question for bernie sanders right now is not whether he can win here in new hampshire, but whether he can carry all of this momentum beyond his backyard. hillary clinton trailing by double digits in most polls here, instead spending her day in flint, michigan, talking about that water crisis. >> what happened in flint is immoral. >> reporter: leaving her most famous surrogate back in new hampshire to make the case for her. >> republicans have tried way harder, way longer to beat her
6:37 pm
they were of me. >> reporter: but overnight, a different kind of face-off. >> i am so sick of the 1% getting this preferential treatment. [ cheers ] >> reporter: sanders coming face to face with his "snl" doppelganger, larry david. >> sounds like socialism to me! [ laughter ] >> democratic socialism. >> what's the difference? >> huge difference. >> reporter: a lot of laughs last night. clinton advisers do not expect her to win this state. if hillary clinton is hoping to tap into the undecided vote, at the last minute, polls show 21% of voters in new hampshire have yet to make up their mind. tom? >> the expectations game well under way. cecelia, thank you. and stay with abc news for the new hampshire primary, i'm back there tomorrow, following
