in some conservative circles. >> presidential candidate. >> reporter: the cruz campaign has invested millions in voter data mining and mobilization. cruz is looking for a top-three finish here. john kasich, angling for second in new hampshire, told us after his 100th town hall, tonight's debate is not key to his strategy. >> the problem with them is they never really give you a chance to show yourself. that's yet town halls have been so great. >> reporter: do you have any sense at all that trump is collapsing and you could find yourself in first? >> i think there is a little air out of his balloon. but, you know, we'll wait and see for election day. >> reporter: donald trump campaigned friday in south carolina of course leaving behind snowy new hampshire where his once-formidable lead has begun to melt. >> my total focus now is on new hampshire. >> reporter: jeb bush trying to revive his campaign after a disappointing sixth in iowa, called trump an insult artist riddled with ipsecurities.

her 10 points down. as chip reid reports, this time clinton trails bernie sanders almost two to one in new hampshire. >> so let me all sc all of you guys-- are you ready to make a political revolution? >> ( cheers ) >> reporter: at new hampshire's franklin pierce university, bernie sanders drove home the message that's made this 74-year-old so wildly popular with young voters and has propelled him into a stunning statistical tie with hillary clinton nationally. >> power of wall street, the power of corporate america, the power of the corporate media, the power of large campaign donors are so great, that the only way we transform america is how? how do we do it? together. that's exactly right. ( cheers and applause ). >> it's a beautiful day in manchester! >> reporter: clinton campaigned in manchester today, door to door, and i concord, with former secretary of state madeleine albright.
6:35 pm
appeal on women voters. >> we have to continue to defend a woman's right to make her health care decisions. >> and just remember, there's a special place in hell for women who don't help each other. ( cheers and applause ) >> reporter: but clinton made clear she's still hoping to cut into sanders' lead with college students. >> we're going to make college affordable. you will have debt-free tuition, fees, and expenses at any public college or university. >> reporter: earlier in the week, clinton angrily accused sanders was running a smear campaign, butta this event, she didn't even mention his name. it's unusual for a candidate to leave a state the weekend before an important primary, but clinton is going to flipt, michigan, tomorrow to talk about the drinking water crisis and to enhance her credentials as a progressive, and sanders is going to new york city tonight to appear on "saturday night live" an effort to expand his lead with young voters. jim. >> axelrod: chip, thank you.

of bed by a magnitude 6.4 earthquake. at least 17 people are dead in the hard-hit city of tainan on the southern coast. here's mireya villarreal. >> reporter: in the chaos and rubble, thousands of rescuers are working frant frantically and carefully for moments like this-- a baby pulled alive from a collapsed 17-story apartment building where dozens are believed still trapped. this woman says she jumped out of the window to survive, while another man says he barely made it out. "when i ran down from the third floor i found the whole second floor was gone," he says "and had to wait to be rescued by police." from the air, the except of the damage is clearly visible. nine buildings in tainan collapsed, but the damage is especially evident on the ground, cars crushed, twisted
6:37 pm
more than 500 now homeless. seismologists say the earthquake struck close to the surface, a large quake that shallow can be especially destructive. kate lao shaffner teaches flsh english in a town just south of the epicenter. >> reporter: the quake struck just as the taiwanese were preparing to celebrate one of their biggest holidays, the lunar new year. now it's a nation in mourning. it's mostly a grim task, but there's clear motivation not to give up. every time there's a rescue amid the rubble. mireya villarreal, cbs news, los angeles. >> axelrod: carnival is now under way in brazil, which is a huge draw, with at least one million tourists expected there to celebrate. and now a huge concern in the nation hit hardest by the zika virus.
6:38 pm
jon, a million tourists have come to brazil. a million will go home. so what does all this mean for the potential spread of the virus? >> reporter: well, jim, it's a great concern. because one theory about the way that zika actually came to brazil in the first place is that it was brought here in 2014 with the world cup soccer matches by someone who was infected with zika virus elsewhere, came to brazil, and then an uninfected mosquito here bit that person and got infected with the virus. now weg perhaps it could happen in reverse-- infected people here could then travel elsewhere and you would have local transmission in those countries. >> axelrod: scary scenario. so, jon, we learned a lot more about how zika is transmitted in terms of bodily fluids this week. what do we know now that we didn't before? >> reporter: it's been remarkable, jim. in just one week, we've learned first that it could be sexually transmitted. then it could be transmited by blood transfusion.
6:39 pm
out that in brazil, the virus has been isolated from urine and from saliva of people who have zika infection. now, i want to emphasize something-- just because the zika virus is present in saliva, for example, does not mean that by kissing somebody that you can transmit zika infection from one person to another. we simply do not know that, and research. >> axelrod: all right. at least 53 confirmed cases in the united states, almost all of them among people who have traveled abroad. dr. jon lapook in brazil. thank you very much. cks eti available for tomorrow's super bowl, but it will cost you. on stubhub today, they're priced between $2700 and $4700. of course, you could go big and get $175,000 seat in a luxury suite. of course, that does include food and drinks. super bowl money is a big topic of conversation in san francisco as in how much should the host

here's genetic. >> reporter: when 70,000 football fans fill levi's stadium it will be the culmination of three years of celebration. >> we have credentialed over 40,000 people to work on the super bowl itself. >> reporter: peter o'reilly is the nfl senior vice president of special events. hasn't it? >> it has, but it really is just a testament to our fans and >> reporter: along with that passion, the fans have brought traffic tie-ups and grumbling about how much it's costing san francisco's taxpayers. >> our taxpayers shouldn't be left with a $5 million tab. >> reporter: jane kim is a member of san francisco's board of supervisors. >> i'm not against the super bowl parties. what i don't support is a subsidizing a party for one of the wealthiest corporations in the world. >> reporter: what does it cost the nfl to put this on? >> we invest tens of millions, let's just say.
6:41 pm
of dollars. that's the best i'm going to get from you? >> that's correct. >> reporter: but san francisco is getting no money from the nfl for expenses like police overtime and street cleaning. >> we know the nfl rakes in over $9.2 million bl a year. the nfl can clearly pay for their own party. >> reporter: how important is tourism to san francisco? >> it's our largest industry. >> reporter: kevin carroll, executive director of san francisco's hotel council, said the city is make lots of money, just not directly from the nfl. >> it increases the tax revenue to the city. it brings more people here that small businesses. >> reporter: hotels have raised average room prices to as much as $600 a night this week. the game's benefits may extend far into the future. >> the super bowl has a huge media market, and when people see san francisco, they might be trying to decide where they'ring if to come on their next vacation. >> reporter: no matter what team wins tomorrow, deciding whether this big party makes san

6:46 pm
>> reporter: the first freshman ever to win the heisman, the future was bright for johnny football. >> this is a moment i've dreamed about since-- since i've been a kid. >> reporter: but his problems started almost immediately, breaking n.c.a.a. rules, an arrest for brawling, and a fake i.d. still, manziel was a first-round draft pick, the great hope of the cleveland browns. but when he turned pro, the partying became more public, trouble with his team and run-ins with the law. but for a long time, his talent on the field spared him the consequences. >> he was magic with a football in his hand. that's plain and simple. >> reporter: don mcpherson was a heisman nominee, former nfler has spent time with manziel. >> anyone else with a track record of the behavior, the undiscipline disciplined behavior, the alcohol, the partying he exhibited, no one else would get away with the stuff he's gotten away with. >> reporter: it's catching up with him.
