tv wusa 9 News at 11pm CBS February 1, 2016 11:00pm-11:36pm EST
governor martin o'malley here because tonight, he officially ended his bid for the democratic nomination. cbs news has projected ted cruz wins the iowa republican caucus and on republican side, donald trump has about 24%. marco rubio came in with about 23%. also dropping out just a short time ago, republican mark huckabee, tweeted he's officially suspending his campaign. we have a crew in des moines >> wusa 9's own garrett is in the thick of it. you just heard donald trump in des moines who said he sank iowa and said, i might even come back and buy a farm. >> reporter: i'm heard a lot of campaigns, number 1, this was so short and it was conciliatory. coming in, a surprising second place here, and just a few moments ago, coming out and
congratulating his rival ted cruz, and promising he would win in new hampshire. take a listen to trump a few moments ago. >> i was told by everybody, do not go to iowa. you could never finish, even in the top 10. and i said, but i have friends in iowa, and i know a lot of people in iowa. i think they'll really like me. let's give it a shot. they said don't do it. i said, i have to do it. and we finished second, and i want to tell you something, i'm just honored. i'm really honored, and i want to congratulate ted, and i want to congratulate all of the incredible candidates, including mike huckabee, who's become a really good friend of mine, so congratulations to everybody. . >> reporter: that sounded like a conciliatory concession speak because it was, because the speaker who came out a few minutes before him across town, marco rubio, who came in third
place, did about a point worse than donald trump, if you didn't know the tally, you would have u(thought rubio wa giving a victory speech. he may be the biggest winner tonight because he was such a surprise. he performed about 8 points better than the last couple of polls showed him doing in iowa and his campaign sensed the momentum, and changed it around so he could stay in iowa, do more events and pumped more energy to this bid, becoming a very close third place tonight. we talked to several supporters of rubio who told me earlier this week they were actually supporters of trump until seeing rubio, so rubio stealing that momentum coming in third place, sets him up very nicely in new hampshire where he'll be flying tomorrow morning. ted cruz is the winner tonight, and as we reported at 6:00 this afternoon, a big portion of what cruz was able to do is flood the zone in iowa. he brought hundreds of volunteers from all over the country. he set them up around des moines in and around the state.
they were knocking on doors and making phone calls. it was one of the most sophisticated ground operations in iowa, probably since barack obama won here in 2008, and it produced a similar result. they got their people to the polls and were able to win. but for cruz, it was probably the only negative tonight, something he set expectations that he was going to do. so although it is surprising a little bit to see trump not win, the fact that cruz knocked him off by a slim margin with that superior ground game isn't a huge surprise and it will be difficult for him to duplicate in other states going forward where he doesn't have that kind of infrastructure. the worst night for any of the candidates who are staying in this race, that probably goes to ben carson who came in a distant fourth. it wasn't long ago it was considered trump's main rival in iowa, but tonight, his campaign had to issue a press release denying that ben carson was dropping out of the race,
because he is leaving iowa early, he says, to be the blizzard that's headed in here tonight and to pick up a change of clothes in florida. so all of that brings us back to trump who as he was before tonight and as he will continue to be, is the most confounding and interesting character in all of this. because no one knows what happens next. there has been this theory among people who watch politics closely that if trump loses, it punctures this era and fuels him as an untouchable winner. tonight, he was in the a winner. a second place finish well behind ted cruz and really no one knows how he will react to that when the campaign picks up tomorrow morning in new hampshire. now, reporting live in loimz, garrett hague, wusa 9. >> he's been stealing the headlines for months. it's what everyone talked about when it comes to politics. you've been in iowa the past two days. what has been the buzz on the street? have people been talking about
trump or have they been talking about ted cruz and marco rubio? >> it's really interesting. you never got that feeling that trump was an inevitable candidate. sometimes you can feel the buzz in a city or state when someone is gaining momentum. you didn't feel that with trump at all. you did get a sense of that with cruz and rubio. with cruz, his people were everywhere. they would wear jerseys with his name on t they were very visible present. and this was by design. cruz wanted to make it his state. and they did a good job of doing this. rubio's momentum, natural, more grass-roots driven. we were at a chris christie rally two nights ago talking to people who said they were donald trump people who had converted to rubio. they were going to kind of feel this out and listen a little bit longer but there was something about rubio's message that seemed to be this positive and uniting factor here in iowa, and that's exactly what rubio is hoping to be able to do in new hampshire starting tomorrow to say he is the guy who can win this for
republicans. >> great perspective there, garrett. keep your ears to the ground. reporting live in des moines, iowa. . all right, that's the view from the republican caucus. now, to the democrats. at this hour, hillary clinton has just a razor thin lead over bernie sanders. that is based on cbs news' sampling of precincts and entrance pollings. the early arrivals are split amongst healthcare, income, and inequality as the top issues facing the country. with 87% of the precincts reporting, 50% are going to clinton. that's about 612 votes. there is only a seven-vote difference between clinton and bernie sanders. he's got 49% of the vote with 605 votes. turnout has been high in iowa. a development that was expected to help the sanders campaign, but a clinton aide told cbs they believe their campaign has
won. a big loser tonight, former maryland governor martin o'malley. he is calling it quits ending his quest for the democratic nomination. this after a report in iowa showing facing weak poll numbers across the country. both parties have drawn new participants in the iowa caucuses. about four in 10 say they were caucusing for the first time, according to polling, six in 10 democrats say they wanted a continuation of obama administration policies, among republicans, half of them expressed dissatisfaction. . so take a few deep breaths, campaign 2016 is officially underway. what's the next big thing? february is a huge month. check it out. the new hampshire primary is on the way february 9th, next tuesday, followed by the nevada caucuses for democrats and the south carolina republican primary on february 20th. on february 23rd, the republicans hold their caucuses
