7:02 am
big lead. >> we have a new poll for south carolina to talk about. our top story, president obama plans to travel to cuba next month. ron allen is on white house duty this morning. good morning to you. >> reporter: the white house is expected to announce the president's trip to cuba sometime later today. it has been just over a year since mr. obama said he would begin normalizing relations. many critics are saying it is much too soon to reward the castro regime. a senior administration official telling nbc news that president obama will visit cuba in march marking the first time in 88 years a sitting president will visit cuba. >> these 50 years have shown isolation has not worked. it is time for a new approach. >> reporter: warming relations began after face-to-face meetings.
7:03 am
that they would begin normalizing ties. >> over time it is possible for us to turn the page and develop a new relationship between our countries. >> reporter: last august the american embassy was open. since then secretary of state john kerry travelled to the island and this week signed a deal to resume air traffic. still there are hurdles. tourists cannot visit the island and trade cannot resume until an embargo is lifted. ted cruz and marco rubio were quick to pounce on the announcement. rubio saying he would not go if he were president. >> the problem is they are not just communist dictatorship but anti-american. >> i am saddened to hear i wasn't surprised.
7:04 am
wouldn't go to cuba unless there was progress on human rights. unclear whether that will happen but the number of dissidents arrested in jail by the cuban regime is increasing. >> thank you. you heard some republican candidates talking about cuba. our new poll shows ted cruz leading nationally. we have the complete coverage of that race beginning with nbc national correspondent peter alexander. >> reporter: donald trump is holding on to a commanding lead here in north carolina. nationally the race reached a new turning point. the wall street journal poll shows ted cruz leading donald trump. here in south carina ted cruz is favoring.
7:05 am
the sound of screams coming from washington, d.c. >> reporter: with the gop lineup shrinking after the new hampshire primary the wall street journal poll shows dramatic shift from last month. trump dropping seven. >> i think somebody at wall street journal doesn't like me. >> and yet he tells fibs, lies. >> reporter: the trump/cruz feud escalating. >> i am pro choice. we cannot trust donald trump with these serious decisions. >> reporter: trump's lawyers call it defamatory insisting he opposes abortion. >> i have had great success in business, great success with lawsuits, great success in things we do.
7:06 am
lawsuit but we want to keep somebody honest. >> reporter: trump still dominates with cruz behind. marco rubio is picking up speed and another critical endorsement from governor nikki haley. >> we say that every day is a gate great day in south carolina. ladies and gentlemen, if we elect marco rubio every day will be a great day in america. >> reporter: not a great day for jeb bush who 24 hours earlier told nbc news haley's endorsement would be the most powerful in the state. >> it's all been decided apparently. the pundits have made it all decided. we don't have to vote it is all finished. i should stop campaigning maybe. it's all done. that's not how democracy works. >> reporter: here is something you don't see every day.
7:07 am
brother back stage after w.'s endorsement part of a new campaign video. jeb heard saying thanks, i love you. >> i don't think the president was ready for that chest bump. hillary clinton and bernie sanders working overtime to court minority voters ahead of saturday's nevada caucus. tonight they face-off in las vegas at a town hall event. andrea mitchell is already in position. good morning. >> reporter: with reports that clinton's top donors have complained about a grass roots effort hillary clinton and bernie sanders facing off in nevada, a state she needs to win after losing to sanders in new hampshire. hillary clinton and bernie sanders will be appealing to nevada voters during a democratic town hall on msnbc.
7:08 am
caucuses clinton's lead has disappeared. a new poll has her just one point over sanders. nationally things could be getting worse. once holding a commanding lead among women clinton's favorability is shrinking just six points ahead compared to her double digit lead a couple weeks ago. both candidates are reaching out to african-american and latino voters. clinton on the south side of chicago focussing on racial barriers and the problem of minorities. she also accused sanders of wavering support for president obama in 2012. >> even tried to have someone run against him. >> reporter: sanders looking ahead to south carolina. >> we have a real good shot in nevada and i believe we are south carolina. >> reporter: hoping to pull off
7:09 am
states with more minorities than predominantly white new hampshire. >> i think on election day people will be surprised about how well we do. >> reporter: with the race heading to the south and west clinton is releasing a new ad aimed at nevada's hispanic voters taking on the issue of deportation. and just a few hours ago clinton stopped along the strip to greet workers on the overnight shift at her hotel. whoever wins saturday in nevada will have a lot of momentum going forward in south carolina and beyond to super tuesday, what is clearly a prolonged primary battle. >> andrea mitchell in las vegas. let's turn to mark halpern.
7:10 am
here is what we see, 36% donald trump far and away the leader and this tight race for second or third. is south carolina poised to be the state that winnowathize field? >> donald trump is way ahead in our poll and other poll. the real match between marco rubio and jeb bush. the former protege. the two of them before i thought maybe both make it out. whoever is ahead here in south carolina on saturday is probably going to get to go on into the finals. whoever is behind can get out quite quickly. >> we have the new nbc wall street journal poll showing donald trump not leading two points behind ted cruz with marco rubio at 17. we talk about difference that showed trump with a lead from 15
7:11 am
what do you read into the number in terms of ted cruz at least? >> reporter: the nbc wall street journal poll is a good poll normally but it can be off. it doesn't reflect the fact that trump does have the lead. ted cruz being hit by donald trump and marco rubio has moved up. he has consolidated a lot of support in the conservative wing of the party. i think no doubt ted cruz while still behind trump probably. >> let's talk about the democrats saturday a caucus in nevada. we have seen polling suggesting it is a dead heat there. how do you think hillary clinton has changed her message in the wake of what happened in new hampshire? >> she has honed in on the message that andrea talked about that bernie sanders is not practical. he didn't support president obama and people shouldn't vote
7:12 am
be made into law and reality. that is a very practical message. does it appeal to people's hopes and dreams? that is still an open question. andrea is quite right that saturday's caucuses are very important for momentum into south carolina and into march we see a very long protracted clintb saners clint clinton clinton/sanders battle. >> thank you. now to a desperate hunt for dangerous radioactive material missing in iraq. officials fearing it could be used as a weapon by terrorists. >> reporter: iraqi security forces have been searching day and night for months for this case the size of a laptop holding potentially deadly radioactive material. exposure can cause death in a matter of hours.
7:13 am
fall into the wrong hands. it's a nightmare scenario, making a so-called dirty bomb. an iraqi government document confirms a highly dangerous radioactive material was stolen from a storage facility linked to weatherford oil company in november. weatherford oil said we do not own, operate or control sources or the bunker and that a different company held the material. nbc has not been able to reach them for comment. >> we have not seen indication of material been acquired by any terrorist groups in the region.
7:14 am
these reports very seriously. >> reporter: the state department said there was no evidence that isis pulled off the theft. at this point the iraqis don't know who did. security sources told reuters it looked like an inside job. >> apple is getting support in its industry in a fight against a court order to hack into a phone used by a san bernardino shooter, a request that apple opposes and is fighting. miguel almaguer has the latest. >> an iphone like this one that locks after a set period of time and requires a four digit code to open it. this is what the fbi can't get past. apple says if it helps investigators do that it could
7:15 am
everyone who owns one of these. two months after the terror bernanke san bernardino the iphone is setting off a debate over privacy and security. >> i see the fbi's point, but view. >> reporter: with fbi investigators unable to unlock the federal judge ordered apple to create new software to unlock the iphone so it can be scoured for evidence. >> justice has to be served. people's lives were lost y. feel that is the moral thing to do. >> reporter: apple says they have been assisting the fbi with plans to fight the judge's order. in an open letter tim cook says creating a back door to by pass encryption is something he says
7:16 am
consider too dangerous to create. privacy advocates say building the master key to by pass security will be exploited and puts your privacy at risk. google ceo also weighed in on the issue wednesday tweeting we give law enforcement access to database on valid legal orders but that is different from enabling hacking to devices and data. the fbi believes they will lose the phone data permanently after ten failed attempts to open it. for family members of the victims there is no debate. >> when you are dealing with national security that should come first. people's lives matter. >> while the debate rages on and apple prepares for appeal in
7:17 am
produced to prevent phone companies from protecting data in cases like this. >> we want to know what viewers think. should apple help fbi unlock the shooter's iphone? >> a big debate on that. a strange story out of los angeles where a hospital paid ransom to hackers that apparently were holding computer network hostage. it paid about $17,000 when it fell victim to ransom wear. bit coin is online currency that is very hard to trade. hospital ceo called it the most efficient way to end the problem. neither law enforcement nor hospital gave indication of who might be behind the attack. >> a little strange. let's turn to al roker. >> we have warmth coming up in the next several days. right now record warm weather
