7:01 am
go out tomorrow and vote! in nevada. >> if we nominate someone that 40% to 50% of our party can't stand, we are going to lose. >> trump and rubio don't want to defend their records. they scream liar, liar, liar. >> meanwhile the democrats are gearing up for south carolina. >> secretary clinton seems to be adopting more and more of the positions that we have advocated. that's good. >> the u.s. and russia announced that a cessation of hostilities in syria will come into effect at midnight on february 27th. in michigan, uber driver jason dalton confessed to an attack that killed six people. >> microsoft founder bill gates is weighing in on apple's standoff with the fbi. >> they say they're fighting it because there's no such thing as a one-time only fix. >> no tech company is ever going to volunteer information. >> wild scene on a california street where a small plane crash
7:02 am
incredibly the pilot walked away. >> the crane caught fire and collapsed at a construction site in melbourne, australia. >> all that -- >> in washington, a portrait of president frank underwood from "house of cards" was unveiled. >> democracy is so underrated. >> -- and all that matters -- >> how did i get elected? we got an army of people and many women who left their kitchens to go door to door. >> that's right, john, women leave their kitchens, irishmen leave their bottles of whiskey and italians leave their big make. >> -- on "cbs this morning." >> jeb bush dropped out of the presidential race. >> i congratulate my competitors who are remaining on the island. >> that's right, this election is like "survivor." sadly, jeb did not run an amazing race. he just didn't have that x factor and nothing short of an extreme makeover could make voters forget his big brother. >> today's "eye opener" was
7:03 am
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 it could make you think they're all fighting for first place. but apparently only one has a realistic shot.
7:04 am
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 this guy. >> reporter: accusationings of underhandedness have dogged the
7:05 am
>> every single day something comes out of the cruz campaign that's deceptive and untrue. >> reporter: on monday he moved quickly to minimalize additional fallout. >> this morning i asked for rick tyler's resignation. >> reporter: forcing out his communications director after he shared this misleading video on social media, seemingly questioning ploubmarco 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 immigrants and not let them back into this country. it's a direct appeal to the
7:06 am
desperately needs to arouse. >> thanks, dean. cbs news political director john 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. >> marco rubio makes a point in his sound bite there that donald trump can't get elected because he only has 30% or 40% support
7:07 am
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 don't think it's enough to get kasich out of the race. i think that's going to have to happen when results come in. >> and how important is second
7:08 am
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. you can watch online at, on the cbs news app or devices like roku,

uber has no plans to change how it screens drivers after the deadly shooting spree in kalamazoo kalamazoo, michigan, jason brian dalton admitted he gunned down and killed six people saturday. two others were wounded, including a 14-year-old girl who is in critical condition. anna warner is where he and yesterday. >> reporter: good morning. uber confirms that it received complaints about dalton's erratic behavior saturday night but the company said it could acts he's accused of. it took a judge nearly ten minutes to read all the charges against dalton here at the courthouse yesterday, to which dalton did not enter a plea. >> are you jason brian dalton? >> yes. >> reporter: jason brian dalton had little to say as he appeared by video conference monday and was arraigned on charge after charge. >> count nine -- >> reporter: the uber driver faces 16 felonies, including six
7:10 am
authorities are still trying to determine the motive, but say dalton admitted his involvement in the shooting. >> this was not a -- just a momentary lapse. there is videotapes of these incidences. he walked up on these people and he shot them. >> my daughter is not dead. she is alive and she is fighting for her life. >> reporter: 14-year-old abigail kopp was the youngest person shot. she remains on a ventilator. >> she was a vibrant, beautiful young lady and did not deserve this. neither did her grandmother or those other victims. >> reporter: when the rampage first unfolded saturday, tammy george was at home and thought she heard fireworks. >> so this is your closet? >> yes. >> and i see the bullet holes way down in the bottom. >> reporter: she walked outside to find her neighbor covered in blood. >> she was asking about her kids and then asking why did he shoot me? >> that's what she said, why did he shoot me?
7:11 am
>> reporter: carothers survived, possibly saving the lives of several children who were with her telling them to run. >> i think she went mama bear. she protected them. >> reporter: authorities recovered the handgun used in the shootings and found a large number of firearms here at dalton's home. >> i used to go over there to his property and talk. >> reporter: james block is dalton's neighbor and friend of 17 years. >> i've never, ever heard him talk about a lot of guns or many anation, ever. >> it's got to be tough for his wife and kids. >> oh, i pray for them. i'm sure it's devastating. >> gets to you too. >> yeah. >> reporter: now, dalton is expected back in court next week. in a statement, his family expressed their condolences for the victims, saying there are no words which can express our shock and disbelief. as for abigail kauf, her family says she's continuing to show some movement, squeezing hands and wiggling her toes, charlie. >> that's incredible. >> thanks, anna, good news. bill gates this morning is
7:12 am
fight with apple. the microsoft founder tells "the financial times" the san bernardino case is a limited and unique request for information. the stance is a break from his technology industry peers. last night i asked gates to expand on the security versus privacy fight on my pbs program. >> are you in favor of a private company in this circumstance, apple, in their own lab and their being able to destroy whatever they create after this for the government one time only, should they do that? >> well, in every case up till now when the government has come in and said what's the banking information, you know, banks like to keep their customers' information private. but no bank has ever divide theefied the government and i think apple is forcing a complete judicial process. apple is saying that when the court goes to the supreme court,
7:13 am
they'll defy the government. >> no, they're not. but they're saying that riot nowght 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 exact data but they should not offer them a master key. >> yeah, that would solve this
7:14 am
>> in our next hour we'll talk to apple's lawyer, former united states solicitor general ted olson and find out why one of the country's most respected legal names is defending the tech giant. that's ahead. >> he didn't want to seem to give a specific answer to that. >> no, he was not but he wanted to see it go through the process first. >> i heard that. you asked it very directly. >> and numerous times. >> a couple of times. >> i like him a lot. >> yeah. he likes you too. republican senators will meet today to gear up for a fight over the open seat on the supreme court. a new poll finds that 56% of americans want the senate to hold the hearings and vote on president obama's nominee to replace antonin ska acalia. jan crawford is on capitol hill where a newly discovered video is helping republicans who want to delay a decision until the next president. jan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this is going to be a huge fight about one thing for sure. a lot of these arguments you have heard before.
7:15 am
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 understands why this senate must do what he said it must do in 1992. >> reporter: with president obama poised to move the court to a liberal majority,
7:16 am
any nominee. democrats, like senator minority leader harry reid, are questioning their motives. >> it's a full-blown effort to delegitimatize president obama. >> reporter: but democrats like reid and even then senate obama have tried to block republican nominees when they controlled the senate, and republicans who were in the senate minority cried foul. >> any president's judicial nominees after full debate vote. >> reporter: here is senate yesterday. >> it is today the american people who are best positioned to help make this important decision. >> reporter: now, when biden made that so-called biden rule, he says that he really left the door open for a compromise. in a statement he said he was talking about a, quote, hypothetical vacancy to the supreme court and the white
7:17 am
obama, well, he now regrets his vote to filibuster justice alito. but charlie, memories are long in the u.s. senate and republicans are not quite ready to forget. >> jan, thanks so much. secretary of state john kerry this morning will go to capitol hill to defend the deal for a partial truce in syria. the u.s. and russia agreed to a cessation of hostilities starting saturday. the agreement does not include isis or the al qaeda affiliate. elizabeth palmer is in damascus with questions about how the plan will work. elizabeth, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the striking thing about this plan is the size of the loopholes in it. for a start, the syrian army says it will continue to fight isis and the al qaeda-linked group al nusra which means basically that the bombing and the battle will continue across huge areas of northern syria. secondly, the syrian army says it's going to carry on fighting
7:18 am
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. president obama vowed to close it during his 2008 campaign and he will deliver a statement from the white house this morning on the new plan which is expected
7:19 am
91 prisoners are now held at the prison. the plan is to transfer 35 of them to another country in the next year. the remaining 56, including 9/11 mastermind, khalid sheikh mohammed would be held by military guards. three u.s. sites are recommended for holding them in south carolina, kansas and colorado. there was a literal curtain of secrecy as bill cosby's wife
7:20 am

7:37 am
the second answer was that she had a very unique experience at google where she built her career and she tried to apply what she learned at google to yahoo!. google is a once in a lifetime company and just doesn't translate. as a result of that, maybe the wrong person for the role. >> so what do they think will happen with her now? will she bow able to keep her job? >> i do not see that at all. i hate to say it but i don't see how she survives this. >> who might buy this? >> maybe verizon. they might put aol together with yahoo!. that's the rumor out there. at&t, all of those like that installed costder baseustomer base. the other side, financial equity firm. firms that buy companies that are in trouble, turn them around, sell them to someone else or take them public again. >> the notion of one person turning around a company, look what happened at microsoft when

7:44 am

children, the entire families are affected by this. it's absolutely -- it's heartbreaking and it's critical, i think. >> reporter: the university of texas medical branch is home to one of the world's largest collection of viruses. nearly 7,000 samples are stored at the facility. with the focus now on zika, rossi and a team of scientists are working on a quick test to detect the virus in humans and eventually develop a vaccine. >> are we closer to a vaccine? >> yes. every single day that people like me and my fellow colleagues are on the bench, we're one step closer to a vaccine. >> we sort of go from crisis to crisis. >> reporter: in 2009, scientist scott weaver warned zika among other mosquito-borne viruses could make its way to the u.s. today he says finding a solution is going to take time and research money. >> we need to develop better and faster ways to develop products like vaccines and we've got to try to get ahead of these

institutes of health says the zika vaccine could be ready by the end of 2017. infectious disease doctors are always keeping an eye out for the next possible epidemic. with all this talk of zika, scientists that we talk to say the flu bug which kills thousands of americans every year is still at the top of their list. norah. >> omar, thank you so much. heart disease is america's number one killer. for some the only way to survive is an artificial heart. ahead, how science is racing to find a permanent solution in a life-and-death battle of supply and demand. plus the hollywood legend now helping drivers get around. >> the time has arrived, president wazer. the world awaits your commands. the american people are counting on you to drive. >> who is that mysterious voice?

wednesday. 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 you an excuse, what the hell is caucus? nobody knows what it means. >> how important is second place tonight? >> it's important to be able to say that i am the alternative to donald trump. >> it took a judge nearly ten
8:01 am
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. >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. donald trump leads the polls for tonight's nevada republican caucuses.

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 rubio and myself is that both donald trump and marco rubio would allow those 12 million
8:03 am
donald said once he deports them, he'll let them back in as sit zebcitizen 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 fbi, privacy is the argument of apple. but people are now suggesting strongly that you can make this a one-time case. you heard it on the program this morning.
8:04 am
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 argument that this just do it once, just violate your principles this one time, you'll never hear from us again, it is totally bogus.
8:05 am
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 new code to break down security systems that are built into this particular iphone to protect its
8:06 am
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 government, state governments, 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 for the phone involved in the terrorist case? >> well, sure, charlie. you asked that question of the district attorney in new york and he said i'm just anxious to
8:07 am
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 that will happen again and 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? >> no, no, no. 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 can get into it and make it an unsecure phone. >> but we insist they say one time only.
8:08 am
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 safety of american citizens. apple is very sensitive to the concerns of terrorism, so am i.
8:09 am
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 to, not civil liberties, but the capacity of the u.s. government to thwart a terrorist attack.
8:10 am
states government legally and constitutionally to thwart terrorism attacks. i was in the justice department at 9/11 when that tragedy took place. we talked at great length that 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. >> it's a great pleasure. thank you. >> thank you. an eye-opening survey

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 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! >> reporter: until you notice that backpack, those tubes and that unusable sound. >> are you aware of that sound
8:17 am
>> 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 backpack. it pumps about 130 bursts of air per minute, replicating a rapid heartbeat. that noise is always there.
8:18 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 ever received a total artificial 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. >> reporter: lance has been waiting for almost two years. >> i'm hoping this year will be my year.
8:19 am
>> 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 to do that? no. >> and that means a lot to him? >> it does. >> reporter: but lance has something else on his mind.
8:20 am
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"

8:33 am
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. and yet they also back bernie sanders for president. so these contradictions that are going on. >> but, frank, what's wrong with

have to look and say what went wrong that we get so few of these first and second time voters. >> what do they think of donald trump? >> no republican, not trump, not rubio, no republican is on their radar screen right now. and by the way, social media has taken over as the way that they get their news and information, which to me is a little bit frightening because there's no accountability. >> me too. >> if there's something wrong here -- >> and so will they vote is the final question? >> they'll absolutely vote. and this snapchat generation, and i call it that because everyone in this generation is on snapchat. think of what it is, it's a chance to communicate but at the moment, at that time and then everything disappears. that is almost what these young people are like. >> why do they like bernie so much? >> because they hate business, they hate bankers. the number -- the most hated profession among 18 to 26-year-olds are bankers.

so hopefully they turned off before we got to this part. the number one complaint they have about america today is that there's too much corruption. >> and the number one issue they were concerned about was income inequality. >> so what does this sound like? it sounds just like a sanders campaign. >> and so this is the generation that rejects capitalism. in fact the most interesting finding is that 58% believe that socialism is the most compassionate form of economics and less than 40% choose capitalism. i'm in deep trouble. >> so what's their definition of success for themselves. >> financial success, personal success. it's the idea that they can get what they want, that they can achieve what their objectives are. and the only thing they think that's holding them back is business, is the economy, is capitalism. this is a very radically different generation than what came before it. >> they should visit some other countries. >> yes, but -- and their parents will undoubtedly pay for those
8:37 am
>> all right, thank you, frank. did you like them? >> no, they're not my favorite generation. i actually like their parents more than i like them. >> and they speak so highly of you, mr. lunts. >> i make them call me dr. luntz. >> thank you for joining us at this table. the internet star who loves wine and hates mornings will be with us in studio 57. >> every time my alarm clock goes off, it's just like beep, beep, you have a job. beep, beep, you have bills to pay. beep, beep, you have a drinking problem that your mom keeps telling you you should seriously consider addressing. >> i think frank luntz is saying
