8:00 am
morning." more real news ahead, including the women who are voting for bernie sanders. we will ask the editor of "kos ma tolpolicy taken" if hillary clinton can win them back. first, here's a look at today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> campaigns are ramping up quickly but despite a smaller field, the republican race is no less uncertain. >> she stayed largely out of sight prepping for the debate while bernie sanders did something of a victor lap around >> hillary clinton wants turn the page and wants a new story and better than why were standards -- bernie sanders has to build on the momentum from new hampshire. >> awful experience. >> one of the deputies were respond to go a call and investigators say the suspect pulled a gun and fire. >> dale said you killed her. >> daily doesn't know anything.
8:01 am
>> get lost, brother! >> i'm disturbed that a priest is saying so and so is full of it. >> you should have been there. i was surprised myself. >> this agency found gaps in agency and proficiency on equipment like this. >> according to google, ben carson was looking for a republican candidate during yesterday's new hampshire primary, mostly because he is standing right where we left him! there! he is still there. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. the republican presidential candidates are focused this morning on south carolina. that state's gop primary is just nine days away. chris christie and carly fiorina will not be there as they dropped on wednesday and reducing the gop field to seven.
8:02 am
new hampshire is a good state for a liberal republican. >> he doesn't have any policy. he tells you what he is going to do but won't tell you how he is going to do tichlt he. he has not been tested. he is a talented guise unless you're awoman woman or a hispanic or a p.o.w. or a disabled person it's entertaining but if you're not night, it's divisive and ugly and mean-spirited. >> reporter: donald trump took shots at bernie sanders and hillary clinton. >> honestly, women don't like her. men don't like her. take a look what is happening to her. a guy that nobody ever heard of, literally, is beating her so i don't know. honestly shi talk about hillary. i don't know if she is going to be running. i was there last night where sanders is raving and talking
8:03 am
i'm shocked because he is so nontraditional. i don't see a socialist is the head of this country. where are we going to? >> bernie sanders visited his native brooklyn with scott pelley yesterday and scott asked sanders if he can win in states that are less liberal than new hampshire. >> look. if you and i were having this conversation nine months ago, what would you have said to me? you would have said, bernie, nobody knows who you are. you're regarded as a fringe candidate. you don't have any money and you don't have any political organization. last poll we saw you were at 4%. how will you possibly going to do well in iowa or new hampshire? a lot has happened in nine months. >> sanders almost beat clinton in iowa before trouncing her in new hampshire. he had overwhelming support there from young voters and women. our exit poll shows sanders beat clinton by 11 points among all female voters and those polls reveal women under 45 voted for sanders by a huge 40-point margin.
8:04 am
us about why clinton is struggling with women. joanna, good morning. >> good morning. she got trounced by bernie sanders in new hampshire among all demographic groups. what happened? >> i think what we have to remember at this point in the election is that both of them are looking for something new. what we hear from millennial voters in particular is there is a huge mistrust of american institutions, so they feel the political system has failed them. if they want to start a business, banks won't lend to them, they would raise money on kick-start because the banks brought about the financial crash. this is a generation being told go to college and get a degree. they go to college and get a degree and graduate with huge amounts of debt and they can't find a job. of course, hillary clinton is seen as part of that establishment, and so bernie feels like this exciting feel-good candidate who is promising free education, very appealing if you're a young millennial, and i think that
8:05 am
campaign, so she is actually running from a much more moderate place and promising more of the same, and bernie is promising something new and is right on the fringe and running a very aggressive campaign. >> what norah is asking, is hillary doing worse outside of new hampshire? is there, in the nation, a sense that women are perfectly happy with her? >> well -- >> other than those who separate themselves out because of they are millennials? >> i love your questioning and i think it's deep effective. the idea that women vote only with their vagina is as different as men voting for their privates. they vote for what they care about and one of their things is their pocketbooks. this is a generation that is deeply in debt. they talk about wanting experiences rather than things because they can't afford things. they don't think they are able to buy a house. they can't pay off their student debt and they are worried about health care and bernie appears
8:06 am
>> joanna, we know that. all of the polls show us that. >> why are you asking me why women across america, do they support hillary or not? >> because i've been told by producers that you have been part at the white house and you have been asking about women favored. all i asked is -- >> -- young women and we are very independence what they are engaged in and they are engaged. >> the reason i asked the question. we are asking you what are young women thinking? >> well, i'm trying to tell you that they don't trust american institutions. because hillary has been secretary of state, they feel she is very much at the heart of that government, which they think has let them down. we are in a primary part of the campaign when things shift to the general part of the campaign and we have the nominees, i think the discussion will be very different. i don't think women look at hillary and think she is their feminist icon. i think young women think of beyonce or rihanna as their feminist icon.
8:07 am
gone everywhere on twitter which said madeline albright and gloria steinem not my feminism. what is your feminism as mother dr -- >> that created a customer fluffle because they are going to bernie sanders because they are looking for young men and she has since backed off of that and i think many are rubbing women the wrong way. >> i don't think you can tell a young generation what they must think or what they should think or how lucky they are in their position. we saw it rebounded on them. i think this is a generation that could be on saying i want to be like her. look at the way she won the super bowl? no one can remember if it was the broncos or panthers. beyonce came out. >> it was the broncos who won the super bowl. >> do you think that is called clinton fatigue? i've been seeing articles like that. you eluded to that earlier.
8:08 am
we taught to want new things. and hillary clinton, as she, herself, said, her democrat ibic town hall in cnn she has been around in the public eyes for 25 years and that feels dull. people want change. that doesn't mean they won't support her in the general the republican candidates who want to say women have no right to choose and no access to abortion which i think is an important issue for young women. >> the race is still early. >> very early. very early. we can't assume that new hampshire is going to dictate the rest of the election. >> you and your husband are good friends with mayor bloomberg. do you have any sense of where he is leaning? >> i have no sense where he is leaning but it must be very goring for him looking at how well donald trump is doing and thinking i ran the city of new york extremely efficiently. i gave people a longer life span, and i also am is billionaire but i made it myself, i didn't inherit it and why is donald trump so well in the polls? >> thank you.
8:09 am
good to see you. >> michelle miller gets an answer from lionel richie on a question many have been asking. hello >> talk about "hello." who owns it? you or adele? >> well, i was here first. hello is it me you're looking for >> certainly room for both of them. did lionel richie mind sharing

8:15 am
on a national scale really doesn't have it. think about it. we are used to seeing hot dogs on the rollers in convenience stores. >> i was surprised to learn that mcdonald's actually tried this in the '90s. i don't remember that but they clearly failed at it. why does burger king think they can succeed where mcdonald's sold? >> 995,1995, the mchot dog. i don't remember it either. it was a long time ago. it's a different time now in terms of consumer interests and tastes and how these companies have willing to break the mold and be less rigid about what they are. so i think they have seen that it worked when they tested it. and these companies have tested lots of new things. like, mcdonald's now has all-day breakfast and seen some of these things have actually worked. i think they are going to continue to test new things. they say it's a product launch, it's not that, it's a category launch, meaning i think we can expect more in the way of hot dogs down the road.
8:16 am
healthy. from all we have read about hot dogs, it's not, not, not healthy! why do you think this is a gamble they think it's going to work? >> they are are partnered with oscar mayer. 100% beef hot dogs and it's broiled and it's fresh. and it's flame-grilled. when you look at burger king's recent offeringings like a mozzarella bacon cheeseburger or chicken fries or pulled pork sandwich they are not talking about healthy fare in those offerings. the customers are still coming to the stores so they want it. >> how are they doing compared to other companies? >> now they are a private company but not a standalone like they were so we can't see their sales on their own. certainly, this whole category

8:20 am
