the prime minister, there would not be a palestinian state. he said a palestinian state in the middle east would be a base for attacks on the state of israel. he is doubling down on the support from right wing. isaac herzog said he would bring change. if you want the status quo, vote netanyahu. if you want different leadership and change, that is what he is standing for. we have seen netanyahu focus on security. that is his biggest issue. herzog focusing on the economy. both know the polls are falling behind in the race. up until the last week it was neck and neck. isaac herzog is ahead.
we will find the official results in the hours after the polls close. john. >> thanks to oren liebermann for that. developing this morning, president obama says the u.s. can't afford to have senate republicans trying to undermine his efforts to negotiate a nuclear deal with iran. that is how president obama it with the interview with "vice." he told the founder that he is embarrassed for the republicans that signed the letter. cnn's jim acosta has more. >> reporter: the negotiators did raise senator tom cotton's letter to the ayatollah khomeini. they are talking about it as a distraction. cotton says it was signed by 46 of his colleagues and complain complained. the flare up was enough to send
a letter to bob corker assuring him there will be a vote. in the interview taped last week with "vice," this is what the president had to say. >> this is a good example of the state of our politics that leads republicans to be more worried about a tea party primary than they are about what ordinary folks are thinking. it damages our country. in this day and age where we have such big issues we cannot afford it. >> reporter: josh earnest says they are missing a key point there is no deal yet. the white house would rather congress hold off on votes until the end of march when a framework agreement is reached and the end of june. john. >> jim at the white house. american voters are siding with
the white house when it comes with the letter to iran. more people thought that the senate republicans went too far by a margin of ten points. 39% said it was appropriate. more on that poll coming up on "new day." the president not alone in the concerns about the letter. iranian diplomats raised the letter as an issue in talks in switzerland. the talks continue. let's bring in correspondent nic robertson. nic. >> reporter: five hour talks yesterday with secretary kerry and zariff. we are not told what the response was and how secretary kerry dealt with it. the talks are back on this morning. kerry and zariff have been in a meeting coming up to an hour now. the mood surrounding the talks yesterday, not so good.
the briefings we are getting from the state department really indicate their concern the deadline for framework agreement and the state department is not sure if the deadline can be reached at the moment. there are significant decisions that need to be made by the iranian side. there's really political decisions that are on the table for iranians. for their part the iranian foreign minister said we finally we will get something. the reality was he went off to brussels and met with the french german and british foreign ministers and a source speaking to the reuters agency look we had a long meeting, but the gaps have not been narrowed. there are substantial issues that are yet to be resolved. you know what we are hearing at the moment the talks continue and the deadline approaches.
but significant gaps remain. iranians want to keep open an enrichment facility and water reactor that makes weapons grade plutonium. both plants are supposed to be redesigned as research facility. in the case of one. all of the pieces still on the table and still in play john. >> there will need be to movement and quickly to reach the deal by the end of march. nic robertson, thank you. new developments in iraq. iran is sending advanced missiles to help drive isis out of tikrit. u.s. agencies have been tracking the shipments for weeks. none of the weapons have been used. the pentagon is worried it could cause civilian casualties if they are because the weapons are not precision guided. the iraqi offensive to take back tikrit has stalled.
heavy casualties on the iraqi military and militias over last few days. the white house is monitoring the issues closely with the help of that man. david petraeus. the retired general is now consulting with the obama administration on the iraq strategy. that is even though the general was convicted of leaking classified information with his mistress and lying to the fbi about it. enrollment in obamacare is rising. according to the white house, more than 16 million americans have gained coverage since the law took effect in 2010. the administration plans to commemorate the anniversary of the rollout. republicans are taking another stab at repealing it. they will unveil the 2016 budget. it includes vouchers for medicare and transformed medicaid to block grants to states. the white house is slamming senate republicans for stalling
the nomination of loretta lynch for the next attorney general. the spokesperson for the general calls the treatment unconscionable and inept. mcconnell will not consider her nomination until the human trafficking bill will be voted on today or perhaps not if it is blocked. democrats are expected to filibuster because that bill includes anti-abortion provisions. the head of the secret service is going to have to explain the agency's latest missteps when he appears at a house hearing on capitol hill. joe clancy was appointed last month to reform the secret service. he will be grilled about the two suspended agents who disrupted a bomb investigation outside the white house earlier this month after a night at a bar. the director is expected to face questions about the culture and
management at the secret service. hillary clinton's e-mail issues seem to be hurting her poll numbers. some say she hasn't done enough to explain her e-mail practices. that is according to the latest poll. the former secretary of state's favorability rating has dropped 16 points since the time she was secretary of state in 2011. 46% believe that her response to the e-mail scandal was enough. 51% says she had not explained her use enough. 57% of the polled say they would be proud to have her as president. let's take a look at your money with alison kosik. >> the asian markets are mixed. u.s. stock futures are lower. stocks jumped rebounding from
big losses. the dow gained 227 points. the s&p and nasdaq added 1%. that puts the dow and s&p 500 back in positive territory for the year. why the bounce? the dollar's rally took a breather. investors seemed up beat ahead of the federal reserve two-day meeting which begins today. that brings me to the hottest word on wall street. patient. if the fed stays patient on hiking interest rates, that could spark another rally. no mention of the word and it could cause a selloff and signal a rate increase as early as june. i don't think there is one word that can move the markets. it is incredible. >> thanks. real estate heir and star of the hbo documentary robert durst charged with murder. we have new details on his case next.

of cash a .38 revolver and marijuana. the d.a. may seek local charges against robert durst. that could hold up going to california and the defense is not happy about that. in court, robert durst very frail and thin in a glass enclosure. sometimes he would look at the gallery. sometimes he would appear to be sleeping. lounging back in his chair. when he came out of the glass enclosure to face the judge, he looked at the gallery and just smiled. he appeared before the judge. the judge asking him questions if he freely and voluntarily was going to california. he answered to those questions yes and yes, your honor. the investigation continues in los angeles. they say this has been going on two years in regard to the slaying of durst's very close friend and confidant susan

to right wing supporters holding a big rally in tel aviv. he knows what is as stake and he knows his political life is on the line. he has to close that gap. meanwhile, isaac herzog hopes to be the next prime minister of israel. >> polls stay open until 10:00 p.m. israeli time. 4:00 p.m. eastern time in the u.s. we should get the first exit polls shortly after that. oren liebermann thanks. developing this morning, president obama says the u.s. cannot afford to have senate republicans trying to undermine his efforts in the nuclear deal with iran. that is how the president put it with the enter view with "vice." the president told the "vice" founder, he is embarrassed with the 47 republicans that signed the letter. jim acosta has more.
>> reporter: the necessitygotiators were raised in switzerland. officials are confident the letter will be a distraction. tom cotton is aggressive about the letter which was signed by 46 gop colleagues and complained about the iran clerics. the flare up was enough for the letter to be sent to bob corker assuring him the deal will be loosened with iran. the president said cotton's letter was damaging could the nation. >> this is a good example, i think, of where the state of our politics that leads republicans to be more worried about a tea party primary than they are about what ordinary folks are thinking. it damages the country. it damages our standing. it is not productive. in this day and age, we cannot
afford it. >> reporter: josh earnest said critics are missing a key point that there is no deal yet. earnest said the white house would rather congress hold off on votes until the end of march where the framework is reached and then june. the deadline for the final deal. republicans and democrats might just have a problem with that. john. >> thanks, jim. american voters seem to be siding with the white house on the letter to iran. the cnn poll finds that people thought the senate republicans went too far by a margin of ten points. more people thought the republicans went too far by a margin of ten points. we will have more results coming up on "new day" in the 6:00 a.m. hour. the voters not alone in the concerns about the letter. u.s. and iranian officials say iranian diplomats raised the issue in the talks in switzerland. i want to bring in correspondent

we will finally get something. yet, the meeting he went to in brussels with the french and german and british officials, and a source with reuters said the meeting was long but the differences have not been narrowed. substantial gaps remain. the message that is emerging here is one that the iranians still have a lot of ground to cover. we know from the state department briefing yesterday, they still have on the table an enrichment facility and water reactor plant that needs to be designated and changed in purpose. the iranians putting them back on the table as issues potentially that they don't want to adjust and change. the state department describing it like a rubik's cube. you solve one part but other parts fall out of place. at the moment talks underway
