sites the night came down -- youto a coin toss. >> at least three different times they had to toss the coin. luck in politics it takes and hillary and the iowalared her the winner last night but we know that bernie sanders isn't conceding that loss right now at all. and he's got a big lead in now. this could be a long fight on both sides. big questions right now, can donald trump bounce back from a loss? who can prevail in what's been aeud between ted cruz and marco rubio and why can't hillary clinton put bernie sanders away. >> that's right. live in a moment. the latest, team coverage as you can imagine of all the night's major developments and we're going to get right to abc's in iowa for us. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, robin. ted cruz became the first republican to get into a brawl with donald trump and it was beat him.
>> reporter: stunning finish >> that is the most votes ever cast for any republican primary reporter: we were there just after cruz heard the news that he had won. >> tremendous evening. i am very, very encouraged, very, very happy. what a victory for the grassroots.ng. >> reporter: the senator from texas defied the odds handing donald trump his first loss with ads like these. >> how stupid are the people >> donald trump, new york values, not ours. >> reporter: people that voted for you said you shared their values so the new york values attack one know what is new york values are, i mean it's the values of the elite liberal politicians. >> reporter: cruz's victory was appeal to evangelical christians. >> our rights come from our creator. >> reporter: donald trump called the republican front-runner for
new title, loser. he also proved he could take aly. >> we finished second and i want to tell you something, i'm just honored. i'm really honored and i want to >> reporter: the iowa loss is a big blow to trump but this was always his weakest state. he leads everywhere else. >> we will go on to getblican nomination and we will go on to easily beat hillary or bernie or whoever the hell they throw up there.you. we thank you. you're special. we will be back many, many times, in fact, i think i might come here and buy a farm. >> reporter: but perhaps the biggest republican surprise of the night, florida senator marco rubio, who finished a stronger thany beating out trump. >> they told me that we have no chance because my hair wasn't
too high. there had been much speculation about how donald trump would ham defeat. would he go and not lash out or he handled it with remarkable restraint as you heard, he thanked the voters of iowa. he congratulated ted cruz and perhaps most surprisingly, no overnight. in fact, from donald trump overnight total twitter silence. >> yeah, he was pretty graceful in defeat last night but, jon,ike the voters in iowa who made up their minds at the last minute had a real gut check about donald trump. >> reporter: they sure did. itooked at those that decided in the last three days, they overwhelmingly broke first for marco rubio actually most and then ted cruz. very few broke and i think a big factor there, george, was i know with a lot of iowans i talked to they were offended by his decision to skip yeah, they might have wanted him to be there. thanks very much. we turn to the democrats and
it is hard to be any closer than this. look at that.o 49.5 right there but iowa democratic party has declared clinton the winner, the clinton camp, as fight her to a virtual draw and has a big lead in new hampshire. cecilia vega has the latest. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: g to you. there were cheers on the clinton plane when it touched down here in new hampshire not that long ago when staffers found out that the iowa declared her the winner. the big question right now, though, if hillary clinton is the winner in iowa just how big of a win is it really? a democrom vermont putting a serious dent in the clinton armor. it had all the hallmarks of a victory speech. >> wow. what a an unbelievable night. >> reporter: the only thing missing the word "victory."
breathing a big sigh of iowa. >> reporter: while the democratic winners still too close to call hillary clinton took to the stage in iowa, her her side but overnight her campaign going all the way declaring an outright win saying in a statement, after thorough analysis of results, there is no uncertainty and secretary clinton has clearly won the most national and state delegates. so tight in some precincts a coin toss broke the tie. clinton winning at least three, her supporters cheering.cheers and applause ] >> reporter: this morning, senator bernie sanders not giving up. >> tonight while the results are it looks like we are in a virtual tie. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: sanders' campaign claiming victory too far he's come since launching
>> what iowa has begun tonight is a political revolution.lause ] >> reporter: on his flight overnight into new hampshire where polls show the vermont senator has a strong lead, sanders s he heads into this next battle in his own backyard. >> i think tonight shows the american people that this is a can win. >> reporter: and sanders is still not conceding. he says iowa shows he can compete at any state in this was, however, one concession overnight, the third person in this race, former maryland governor martin o'malley, robin, has>> all right, cecilia, thank you. we're going to turn now to the republican candidate who had a big night last night, joins us now from manchester, new hampshire. already made your way to new hampshire, senator rubio, thank you very much forhis morning. >> thank you, robin.
short time ago that showed that a big number of latent your way. what do you think your message was that helped them make up their mind toward you? >> well, i think people realize an side that we cannot afford this country cannot afford to lose this election and i give the party the best chance not just to unify the conservative movement but to grow it, to take our messaget don't vote republican now, grow our party and movement and defeat hillary clinton or bernie sanders and so i feel that wentum in the last few days and got more votes than mitt romney or rick santorum when they won the caucuses four years ago so we feel great aboutnd thanked them and we're ready to go in new hampshire and excited about the momentum we're carrying in. >> there were a record number of gop and many thought a large turnout would defeated. what do you think that says?
than ever because republicans and americans understand that this election is the most important election in the generation. it's literally a identity as a nation. we're either going to be greater than we've ever been or we're going to become a great nation in decline. that's expressed in the you saw yesterday and particularly in our campaign the last seven to ten days, the surge of people including those not registered republican who our campaign in a state where ted cruz, i congratulate him on his victory, this is the place the campaign was built in and he put all that infrastructure in there and worked it really hard and earned this feel so good about the growth we've had and what that will translate to in new hampshire and after that south carolina and we're just incredibly grateful and excited abouthe road continues, it began there in iowa and when it comes to those who consider themselves very conservative, ted cruz overwhelmingly i think it was his right, 44% supported the voters last night, they said he was very
that was almost three times as much as you with 15% and youn an interview you talked about ted cruz and you said the lie his whole campaign is built on is that he's the only conservative. it's hat you said. you care to elaborate on that? >> sure, i mean, ted's whole campaign is built on this notion that he's the only one that's aive and everyone else is a rhino or sellout. it's not accurate. his accurate is one of calculation. you see it on the issues whether on immigration where he favorede here illegally. now he claims he never did. whether it's on national defense where he talks tough on isis but ted cruz voted for a budget, thes ever voted for is a budget that brags about cutting defense spending. so it's on issue after issue. you know, he goes, he criticizes has raised millions of dollars from new york city. so these are the sorts of things that voters will start learning about and as they do i think a lot of these numbers will begin change.
rubio, are commenting about your speech last night. how strong it was, how optimistic it was and howent it was of what barack obama said in iowa, in fact, his speech writer tweeted to that effect. what were you trying to convey in that speech last night? >> well, i by reminding everybody that wasn't supposed to happen last night. they told us at the beginning of this race i shouldn't even run, that it wasn't my turn, i needed to there were other people who had been around longer that we needed to wait in line behind and i think what you saw last night in the results, not just with us but with donald and, of course, with ted is thety is being very clear, the grassroots, this is no time for waiting or patience, this is a time for ow i began last night, grateful to the people of iowa but i want people to be realistic about our challenges but optimistic about our future. if wee done, the greatest days in american history are within our reach.
have to explain to our children why they did not inheritry that was left for us. >> senator marco rubio, again, congratulations last night. we'll see you there in new hampshire. thank you for joining us, ks, robin. thank you. >> george. >> thank you, robin. let's talk about it now with matt dowd and donna brazile and talk about the republicans dowd. coming into the first votes in iowa, donald trump dominating all the headlines, all the dialogue for so many months, gets beat by ted cruz and the big question is, he even said it he doesn't win it's completely meaningless, once he loses can he recover? >> well, i think the great thing about this presidential process is we've known through the years is you're tested in meet the test or don't you meet the test? now is an opportunity but all a concern for donald trump. he has to meet the test. has to perform over the next week, he has to win new hampshire or the race for him is over if he doesn't win new hampshire. if he w conducts himself during the course of this especially at the
hampshire will put him back up as the front-runner but he what is to win new hampshire. >> no question about if you look, donna brazile, at this republican party, donald trump, a businessman, you have two first-term latino senators. this is a brand-newy. the democrats will be facing it. >> absolutely right. look, donald trump made the sale but he couldn't close the deal. and i think going forward, -- donald trump will be forced to run a more traditional campaign try to do more retail. not all these big rallies flying in and flying out. voters clearly would like toonald trump a little better but when you look at what happened yesterday in iowa, it was really an exciting moment for first-time caucusgoers and lican process endecided they wanted to stick with somebody who had more traditional values, ted cruz. the democratic race was a race of passion, the pasie sanders is showing on the campaign trail versus practicality, electability. it was a close race, i still
know nobody cares about of us who are insiders but hillary clinton will probably get the most delegates, but -- >> i think all three republicans right now have a problemic path ahead. donald trump has to win. he's now suffered his first to show he can win outside of a small caucus state where evangelicals dominated the scene and marco rubio has to find his first of thirds and seconds won't do it until you find your first win, so i think right now there's a troubled path for all other republicans out now? >> no, i think there's still an opportunity for somebody, probably john kasich in new hampshire to sort of up, up ahead of marco rubio. there is a shot and he made a smart move. he didn't stay in iowa. he spent the whole weekend in new hampshire so there's ang outside shot john quickly, you're right about the delegates and hillary clinton has a lead in the superdelegates but will face the put away
>> 68% of caucusgoers described themselves as liberal and bernie with those who are very, very liberal. going forward, she has to reset her campaign to be more like a movement, not ampaign for something that galvanizes young people and those who are still interested in change. very much. ote" including that big republican debate this saturday night at 8:00, 7:00 right here at abc. now let's go tor top stories with the latest on the zika virus. >> reporter: the world health organization has now declared the zika virus a globalnd that will allow more money and research to focus on the outbreak which is linked now to thousands of brain damaged newborns. the cdc has added four map of areas where travelers risk being infected. they include coast ka ryka, nicaragua, curacao and american
