history, though not the way she hoped. she was declared the winner of iowa's democratic caucuses by the smallest margin ever. now she faces a tougher battle against bernie sanders on his new england home turf next week. new hampshire is also where republican donald trump will be looking for a comeback after losing to ted cruz and barely edging out marco rubio. our campaign 2016 correspondents are on the trail. and first go to major garrett with the republicans. new hampshire. so what a victory last night. >> reporter: after earning the most iowa caucus votes in gop history, ted cruz boasted he defied the odds. >> every tv pundit on virtually every station said cruz can't win, no chance cruz is going to win iowa, not going to happen. it would be trump, trump. trump. >> reporter: but it wasn't.
4:01 am
gave an uncommonly subdued concession speech. >> we finished second. i want to till you something, i am just honored. really honored. today the bombast was back. trump complained on twitter he had not been given any credit by the voters for self funding his campaign and the media has not covered my long shot great finish in iowa fairly. trump called cruz's victory speech, long, rambling and overly flamboyant. the race is quickly becoming a battle among, trump, cruz and marco rubio. the florida senator says he is in better possession to be the nominee than cruz. >> who is closer now? >> i think i am. we are one delegate apart. second i give us the best chance to unify the party. you can't win if the party is divided but to grow it. >> reporter: rubio's momentum comes with attacks from kasich,

4:04 am
>> reporter: sanders also has something of a home field advantage here. he is from neighboring vermont. clinton has the deep ties here too, scott, it is here she staged a come back eight years ago after a stinging loss in iowa. >> nancy cordes, thank you. two casualties of the iowa caucuses, republican mike huckabee who won there eight years ago. he did poorly last night and dropped out. so did democrat martin o'malley. >> clinton picked up 22 national convention delegates in iowa. sanders, 21. but that's a little misleading because clinton already has 362 superdelegates. party leaders who pledged their votes to her. that brings her now to 384 or about 16% of the 2,382 she needs. after new hampshire, the polls indicate the primaries are expected to break clinton's way. on the republican side, cruz picked up eight delegates,
4:05 am
they need a little over 1,200. so, far to go. john dickerson, our cbs news political director and anchor of "face the nation." john, we heard what a difference an election makes. tell me how has the race changed? what's the new framework? >> we have been talking about the race in terms of establishment, versus the outsider. woe we shoe look, ideology, versus electability. look at entrance polls in iowa, who shares your val use? they went for ted cruz. when they were asked who do you think can win in november, the large share went to marco rubio. going into new hampshire, ted cruz is saying i'm the true consistent conservative. the keeper of the flame. rally to my light. marco rubio is saying i can beat hillary clinton. >> question of yesterdayology and electability. tell me where does this go from here? >> well, marco rubio did well in
4:06 am
better than expectations. but now he is saying he is in the top tier, he is the alternative to cruz and trump. those expectations are very high. so, he would have to do very well in new hampshire which is a less ideological state. of course he has new competitors there in bush, christie, and kasich. all of whom want to drag him down. of course there its the roiling fight between ted cruz and donald trump. >> john dickerson. watching on sunday on "face the nation." john, thank you so much. the "cbs overnight news" will be
