5:35 pm
ever received. >> clinton there responding to sanders' attacks on her ties to wall street sanders still has a significant lead there in new hampshire over clinton, in the latest polls. donald trump, meantime, continue tose hold the lead on the republican side, after a stop in south carolina. trump will be back in the granite state on saturday for another gop debate. let's start our discussion there on the gop side. we welcome in john dickerson, host of face the nation. always good to see you. after iowa, it's really looking like a three-man race. so are any of the other candidates braced to position there? >> looks like a three-man race. but there are three men who would like to not have it shrink to a three-man crais. that's governor kasich, bush and casey. they would like to be the main stream rnaltee ativto trump and cruz. so they're still battling that ought. they're aching on marco rubio, quite hard in new hampshire. really going after him, all three of them.
5:36 pm
and so we'll have to wait to see what happens in the vote. if it's just down to 3 or if the field expands more. >> survive if they still have a poor showing, those three that you just mentioned. >> that's right. they have to do well. and doing well in new hampshire really probably means coming in second. it depends who is in first place. but if marco rubio does any of those other three, those three governors, if he does better than they, then really there will be a move among the main stream republicans, those who are concerned with electability, because they don't think senator cruz or donald trump can get elected in the general election. and they will start to coalesce around marco rubio, if he's the one to best the other three governors. >> and certainly we know in politics, outdoing expectations is basically a win, to the democratic side, we learned that bernie sanders actually raised more money than hillary clinton last month. his campaign seems to have a lot of momentum. i think we really saw that in the tone of last night's debate. >> we saw a lot of clear lines
5:37 pm
between the two democrat the running in last night's debate. and it's interesting that bernie sanders raised more money. because money is a part of conversation. he raised it through small donations. and he's, of course, making the claim that hillary clinton has -- her ties are too close to wall street. and that was a big part of the discussion last night. not just about her ties to wall street. but also the relationship between money and politics. it was a fascinating conversation. >> absolutely was. well, it's a big day for cbs on sunday. and john dickerson host of face the nation. we'll see you back here sunday morning. >> thanks, adam. well, it started as a game that didn't even sell out. >> it wasn't too much hype on it. but i love football. >> but look at whatit's become 50 years later. we'll talk to one fan who has has seen every single game up next. all right. a little colder tonight. everybody falls below freezing. here are the low temperatures overnight. 26 in gaithersburg. 27 in rockville.
