a new national poll this morning shows donald trump is supported by 49% of voters leading the republicans. marco leads ted cruz in second place. major garrett, good morning to you. >> reporter: for better or worse, marco rubio has discovered his inner donald trump. hurling personal insults. it is a successful model. for trump one potential downside procures another important conversation about trump, tolerance and the future of the republican party. >> he doesn't sweat because his pores are clogged from the spray tan that he uses. >> reporter: last night at a rally in virginia, marco rubio got a lot more personal in his attacks against donald trump. >> he is always calling me little marco.
7:08 am
he is 6'2" which is why i don't understand why his hands are the size of someone who is@ at 5'2". he has small hands. you know what they say about men with small hands? you can't trust them. >> reporter: trump referred to marco rubio. >> there is something wrong with marco. there is something with him. he is sweating. >> reporter: in the past, trump has retweeted support of messages from white supremacists and even retweeted a quote over the weekend from world war ii dictator mussolini. he hesitated when asked about david duke's endorsement of the ku klux klan. >> i know nothing about david duke or white supremacist. i don't know what group you're talking about. you wouldn't want me to condemn a group i know nothing about. >> trump knew enough about duke to say this friday in ft. worth.
7:09 am
david duke endorsed me? okay. i disavow, okay. >> reporter: marco rubio called trump dangerous to the gop. >> how are we going to grow our party with a noom minee who refuses to condemn the ku klux klan? >> donald trump refused to disassociate himself and condemn white supremacist. every day, it's another thing. >> reporter: ted cruz took to twitter. we should all agree racism is wrong and kkk is abhorrent. trump picked up the endorsement of alabama senator jeff sessions and that only be interrupted as a blow to cruz. trump invoked his name in the fight against rubio and comprehensive immigration reform. >> thank you, major. in the democratic race, hillary clinton carries the momentum. the latest tracker battleground
7:10 am
georgia, virginia and texas. clinton scored a decisive win this weekend. she beat bernie sanders by a landslide in saturday's south carolina primary. clinton will hold an event where nancy cordes is this morning. >> reporter: she is leading by 20 points here in virginia in our battleground tracker. it's one of two states a that she is visiting today. those poll numbers help to explain why increasingly clinton is turning her attention away from bernie sanders, training her fire, instead, on the republican candidates. >> i want to debate whoever they put up because here is what they are saying. they are selling the same snake oil, trickle down economics. >> reporter: clinton changed her focus after her south carolina blowout. >> tomorrow, this campaign goes national! >> reporter: she won the state's african-american vote by a staggering 72 points. on "face the nation," sanders
7:11 am

7:12 am
controversy. sanders shared that sentiment tweeting america's first black president cannot and will not be succeeded by a hatemonger who refuses to condemn the kkk. clinton retweeted it. >> some of his supporters say we like mr. trump because he tells it like it is. bigotry is not telling it like it is! >> reporter: sanders is heading to minnesota today, one of a few
7:13 am
>> well, right or, you know, one of the things we saw in our battleground tracker even if the other candidates who are not donald trump start dropping out, whoever is left doesn't get that much more of the vote to really overtake trump. so we are going to have to see what happens when the voters get in the booth and start deciding what they are going to do to see if there is anything to stop trump. at the moment, this race to the bottom in the back and forth between the candidates hasn't seemed to have hurt him. >> rather than a campaign of ideas has become a campaign about mussolini and kkk and the size of a candidate's hands. what is going on in the national republican party about how this may affect the party's future and electoral chances in other races? >> once you're talking about mussolini you're in dangerous territory than makeup. these are repugnant ideas that
7:14 am
far apart of and the difficulty for donald trump even though he dissed about david duke on friday when he was asked by jake tapper on cnn about this, he seemed to be sort of unable to immediately denounce the kkk and white supremacist. this should not be difficult and gives support to those saying he is playing footsy with the ugliest ideas out there. >> a debate on thursday, a lot of people thought marco rubio did very well in. what is chris christie looking for? do you see this possible vp ticket for donald? >> possibly. i think it was a chance for chris christie to get back in the story a little bit after his poor showing in new hampshire and dropping out of the race, because he really ran on things, chris christie, that donald trump doesn't believe in and
7:15 am
lack of experience that are contradicted by what he said in supporting him ultimately in the end. so it's helpful as you mentioned for donald trump to have an endorsement from somebody like that in a blue state. so it was good for the news cycle but i think other than that, donald trump is off on his own and got his own thing going. whether a place for christie in a trump administration there probably is in some possible way. >> john, thanks. our team will bring you super tuesday results in prime time and our coverage begins at 10:00/9:00 central on cbs. a soldier accused of killing his wife and a police officer is expected to face a judge today. police say that staff sergeant ronald hamilton shot and killed officer ashley guindon on saturday. it was her first day with the prince william county police department in virginia. jeff pegues is at the court where hamilton's arraignment is scheduled to take place. jeff, good morning.

7:19 am
it has to be said pretty long odds. the position has officially complained to the united nations of numerous violations by the syrian army and 26 russian air strikes. but for civilians in areas that are quiet, this patchwork truce offers relief and a glimmer of hope it might grow into a broader and more lasting arrangement with monitors and designated safe zones. especially in neighborhoods like the old city here thoroughly destroyed by years of fighting but now back in government hands and quiet. life is starting to return to the ruins. calmer, repairs, even school. the partial truce is also a rare bit of good news to the thousands of homeless syrians who were forced out of their towns and villages by fighting and who know want nothing more than to return. the united nations now wants to
7:20 am
the fighting to deliver aid to 150,000 people in various parts of syria. and they have also announced a new round of peace talks starting a week today. >> elizabeth palmer, thank you. a cyberbreach targeting taxpayers is far worse than

8:15 am
if any get married. >> thinking about career goals first. >> i want to have enough time for both, like, for home life and a work life. >> i will always choose my family over my career at the end of the day. >> my career is really important. then i can't have a father if i can't support them. >> pushing myself professional as much as i can is way more of a priority. >> i don't think the biological clock has hit. >> five years i plan to marry.
8:16 am
>> even though it leads to a unprecedented economic it's not a politicized action. one said we want to prioritize career. some we think of that liberating and revolutionary but mostly the pattern. it used to be between 1890 and 1980 the marry age was 20 and 22 and now it's 27. it's a new pattern for adult female life that marriages happen later and maybe not at all. >> in 1970, here it was 23 and now 29. >> how is that changing us, meaning the general society? >> changes everything the way the nation works. it changes. our government and our social policy and civic institutions are built with one kind of sort

and have it be a norm rather than a scandalous or pitiable sight. >> i like you said this is not the first time women have had a huge impact on our society. >> in the 19th century so many men went west for exploration and killed during the civil war men on the east coast and huge population of unmarried women. a lot of these women whose lives suddenly weren't given over to the lives of wifeliness and motherhood put their effort toward the suffrage and teaching. >> nurses and medicine. >> absolutely. many of those pioneers and reformers were unmarried women or unconventionally married women. >> concentration of the major institutions in america? >> absolutely. it's happening. you see unmarried women rising in politics.

8:45 am
february. except we don't add an extra day every four of that years, it's divisible by 100 unless it's divisible by 400. in that sounds, confusing it is! we started to dig into leap years and figure out what it's
8:46 am
>> reporter: do you know why we have a leap year? >> no. >> no. >> probably something about the sun? >> to do with the seasons and global warming. >> i don't know. el nino? >> reporter: we decided it might be best to consult an expert. here is theoretical futurist michio kaku. why do we have a leap year? >> you go around the sun is 3 65 days is what we learn in school, no? mother nature made it 365 hours plus five hours and 49 minutes and a few odd seconds. that means that every year, we have to compensate for one quarter of a day. so after four years, we have to add one more day. >> reporter: when did we figure out the need for this extra day? it was way back in 46 b.c.
8:47 am
calendar they were going after wasn't working. together they realized what the egyptians had discovered we need an extra day every four years to stay on track, so he instituted the julien calendar. but even that wasn't quite right. see? the solar year is actually only .242 days longer than the calendar year and not an even.25. when we add a full day every four years, we are left with a surplus of roughly 11 minutes every year, and that can start to add up. so, finally, in 1582, pope gregory 17th fixed the glitch and instituted the calendar we still follow today. how is it different? i'll let michio kaku explain. >> 11 minutes difference in one year's rotation builds up. and that is why the pope had to intervene and say we have to tweak the julien calendar one more time.
8:48 am
1600, that is divisible by 400, there was a leap year, but in 1700 and 1800 and 1900, no, no leap year. leap year. >> yes. >> reporter: luckily, we have all this. >> this particular watch has a wheel in it that turns run revolution every four years to >> reporter: someone engineered
