"donald trump did continue his attacks on jeb bush tonight, calling bush a "clown." he'll appear on-stage with bush tomorrow night in columbia for a townhall. in sumter, chad mills, wis news 10." new poll numbers out this evening are suggesting trump could be losing his edge nationally. according to the latest nbc news poll--texas senator ted cruz is now polling two percentage points ahead of trump. marco rubio comes in third in that poll with 17 percent...followed by john kasich, ben carson, and jeb bush. tonight, cruz didn't seem too surprised by the numbers. "it's tremendously encouraging...to be leading the field nationally, i think as a result. hj: did you ever think you'd be here? cruz: that was always the plan. that's how you win. you've gotta get to first place to win." when it comes to polling in south carolina--the numbers continue to show cruz well behind donald trump.

concentrating on this saturday's nevada caucus. but he has also been running hard in south carolina in the palmetto state, support for hillary has been historically so strong the state is sometimes called the "fire wall" that can stop an opponent. but sanders told me he's going after that wall. i think we may create a bit of a crack in that proposed firewall. we did very well in iowa. we defined expectations there. we won in new hampshire. i think we've got a real good shot in nevada. and i honestly believe we are going to do a lot, a lot better in south carolina then people have thought that we would. there's no question in my mind that we have closed the gap. every poll that i have seen says that. we started off 50, 60 points behind. we are still behind today. but we have a period eft to go. i think the momentum is with us and i think if there is a large voter turnout, if working people come out to vote, if
to vote , if young people come out to vote, you know what? i think we got a shot to win this." sanders says clinton is well known in south carolina but that he is already having success getting out his message of free health care, free college tuition and changes in the criminal justice system. senator sanders has so far been able to capitalize on the enthusiasm of young voters. but not everyone is sold just yet. the youth vote and the african-american vote are very important, particularly here in the palmetto state. students we spoke to at the university of south carolina say they've done their research. some say they aren't letting traditional norms skew who they support. :16-:26 "from what i know, yes, i'm the only republican in my family."26:46-27:00 "did my research and found out that my views fit in more with republican party as opposed to the democratic party." :43-:45 "i'm supporting governor kasich." while some students say they're fairly sure who

apple says it will fight a federal magistrate's order forcing the tech giant to help the fbi crack an iphone used by syed farook - one of the shooters in the december terror attack in san bernardino. the obama administration says it's a simple - and narrow request. "they are not asking apple to redesign its product or to create a new back door to one of their products. they're simply asking for something that would have an impact on this one device." not so says apple ceo tim cook ...who writes: "the government suggests this tool could only be used once, on one phone. but that's simply not true. once created, the technique could be used over and over again, on any number of devices." "it's like if you put a key under your mat. how do you make sure only the right people use that key? the fbi wants apple to invent new software to bypass a key security feature that erases all data after ten wrong passcode
brute-force attack to guess the number or password.
