7:10 pm
titman -- times, companies nothing something donald trump does. he's letting other people appearing of differentness advertise doing talking for him. >> trying to ex-pan his base of support but i think it's too late, and giving his rhetoric against undocumented immigrants, i don't think people will believe him. >> why does he want to change this when it's worked so well for him? he's the first one to tell you he's been leading for months and months. today he didn't talk about polls. >> the republican field is win ohing here, so the smaller it gets, trump is going to need those extra votes. right now those votes are going to rubio. >> is he trying to be less of -- tone down that rhetoric any think people know and they like him or don't for what he is. >> he's trying to be a kinder more gentler donald trump but now he comes off morein' authentic. >> is he comfortable with this?
7:11 pm
able to stomach being softer? >> his body language would indicate no. >> because he doesn't seem like it comes naturally to him. you know what i took away from today's events in exeter, he started off talking about jobs and the economy and companies moving overseas, and how he would seek to change that but then you started to hear him talking about illegal immigration which speeds into the core of his support here. so i just wonder whether or not that sort of shift in rhetoric instead of holding up the union leader call it the useless leader and touting the polls that he's at number one, here didn't to that this time. >> he's trying to have it both ways, and i think it's going to confuse voters. that will hurt him tuesday. >> has he hit a ceiling? >> i think so. he's just hoping to get by here and go to south carolina that should be a point of strength for him.

hillary should be very worried. >> what about snap chat? >> he just launched a series of blanket ads on snap chat that appeals to younger voters. that's his bread and butter here. i think it happens in iowa as well and that shows to me that pollsters are undercounting younger voters, and if you have the same result he had, say, in eye was, he's going to have an even bigger lead over hillary here. >> he's calling this a revolution. he's call this a political movement that they've got going. you know, i want to ask you briefly about hillary clinton stumble during the town hall last night. >>, goldman sachs. >> now she basically gave sanders a killer ad. she's out of touch. she took all this money from goldman sachs, and said basically i deserve it. what's the problem. >> so i have to tell you, what's your sense? who is essentially winning the days here in democratic side?
