9:00 pm
>> trump is call on his rivals to quit. what brought down that russian jetliner, the plane's tail recovered miles away from the rest of the crash zone. and one of the shortest retirements ever. "the daily show's" jon stewart changes channels and signs a new deal with hbo. >> great to have you with us. we would like to thank our
9:01 pm
viewers in the united states and all around the world. i'm john vause. "newsroom l.a." a new poll pitting the republican and democratic front-runners shows a very close race. in a hypothetical matchup, ben carson and hillary clinton tied at 47%. the survey was done before last week's republican debate. >> i think mark is highly overrated. highly overrated. ben carson does not have that energy. marco doesn't show up to the united states senate. what jeb bush was saying in the last debate, i don't know, but he didn't say it well. when the e-mail problem came up,
9:02 pm
bernie sanders lost his whole campaign. what he did was so stupid. marco rubio's personal finances are discredited. oh, no, his personal finances all you have to do is look at his credit card. he is a disaster with his credit cards. he certainly lives bo his means, there's no question about that. >> hey, jeff. good to have you with us. we should mention you're a trump supporter, former white house political director. he's back, mean donald is there. he tried to be statesman-like for a while. clearly if polls are and i case, that didn't quite work for him. >> in all candor, where there's three acts or a three-act play,
9:03 pm
you open up gangbusters. the second act is ups and downs and twists and turns. and then finally you get to the third act where there's victory or defeat. we're now in the very beginning of the second act. is he going to be able to get things together for iowa or new hampshire. this is the way of the world here, and you make these attacks. this is what presidential candidates do. election day here in pennsylvania and i voted for candidates for the pennsylvania supreme court and other offices. there's nothing unusual about it. >> i would not ask you if this is the end of his popularity.
9:04 pm
we'll move on. he has this book launch on tuesday, trump called out on a lot of the candidates to drop out. he mocked jeb bush yet again. jeb bush had his own message for trump when he sat down to talk about cnn. >> he's run for president twice he's won twice. i know how to win. i've done it. >> what we're seeing now is a fired up jeb bush, i guess. three months before iowa. can jeb bush reintroduce himself and catch on fire at this stage in the campaign? >> i think he's got a problem here. his new motto is jeb can fix it. and i can only tell you here that the base of the republican party doesn't want this to be fixed. they don't want washington to be fixed. i'll give you a good example. he likes to talk about education. ronald reagan wanted to get rid of the department of education. jeb bush wants to fix it. this is your international
9:05 pm
audience. this is what margaret thatcher used to call the socialist ratchet. what you have is a situation where the left moved the government in one direction, then the right, quote, unquote, came in and just basically sat on it and managed it. then it moved left every time somebody else on left was elected. that in essence is what jeb bush is proposing. i can assure you the base of republican party that's out there for donald trump or ben carson, they're not in any way connected to that. >> donald trump did say if you have been campaigning for the last, you know, three, four, maybe five months now and your numbers are still in the basement, barely registering, it is time to get out of the race. and there would be a lot of people who agree with him. >> yeah. absolutely. there's nothing wrong with starting the race at 1% or 2%. people like bill clinton, george mcgovern, jimmy carter, all of whom won the democratic nomination, george h.w. bush in
9:06 pm
1980, i mean, they were very, very low in the polls. but the difference is, they went up finally. they went up by a lot and eventually captured their party's nomination got on the ticket in the case of george h.w. bush after ronald reagan beat him in the primaries. there's nothing unusual about starting low. but you've got to go up. if at this point you don't have it, the message is you don't have it. >> jeb bush started high, he's gone in the other direction. he was the front-runner. >> that's right. >> and one thing that's amazing is how donald trump has managed to get under jeb's skin. even today he was asked about donald trump was asked about his upcoming appearance on "saturday night live" and he said this, listen. >> my jeb impression? i don't want to do that. i don't like showing a person sleeping at a podium. >> there was plenty of folks
9:07 pm
there. he's an entertainer and he's good at that kind of stuff. the snl is causing a lot of problems not just -- well, essentially for nbc. latino group, the spanish congressional caucus is calling on nbc to stop this. and one of the reasons why i ask you this is because the polls do show that trump is now driving latino voters to hillary clinton. they aren't necessarily pro clinton, but they are anti-donald trump. that's reflect on the republican party. should the rest of the field be worried about donald trump and his standing right now with latino voters? >> one of the things that's very disturbing here, the democratic party historically has been the party of race. this is the party that form lated itself around supporting slavery, then segregation then lynching, then the klu klux klan. they were big on interning japanese americans because of their race. now they're into racial quotas and now they're into illegal immigration because of skin color. this is what they do. and so these are special
9:08 pm
interest groups that do this. and i think it's more time for the republican party of abraham clinton to claim their heritage. america is about ideas, a country based on ideas, not on race. and the democratic party, every last bit of it, including these interest groups need to be called out on it. >> i just want to leave it on the note, though, some people would say donald trump has done a lot when me called some mexicans -- >> illegal immigrants. >> illegal immigrants. we don't want to relitigate that. that was months ago. >> 100% of the country is compose odd of descendants of immigrants. myself included. >> and we have this programming no
9:09 pm
note, investigators are finishing their field work in the wreckage of metro jet flight 9268. russia media reports the plane's tail was found about three miles or 5 kilometers away from the rest of the debris, possibly an indication the flight came apart midair. and despite speculation of a bombing, investigators have not found any traces of explosives in the wreckage so far. for more from st. petersburg russia where the flight was heading before it crashed the tail of the plane was found some distance from the wreckage. how will this play into the investigation? >> well, the russian media is the one explaining the details, in this case, they have access to many of the sources on the ground. what we are learning from st. petersburg newspaper this morn,
9:10 pm
this is the oldest newspaper in st. petersberg, also the most respected newspaper in st. petersbu petersburg. and of course, that's where this plane was flying to. they are now reporting something different that we haven't heard until now. they're saying there are basically two types of injuries that the people onboard the aircraft sustained. there were those in the front section of the aircraft who sustained trauma and burns from falling, and those at the rear section of the aircraft, the tail section that experienced explosive trauma with metal fragments found inside the bodies. now, of course, task state news agency yesterday said that bodies that have been tested so far for explosive residue showed no indications of explosive residue. and also that there were on the bodies that have been tested so far, this is according to tas yesterday, there was no indication of an impact on the bodies from explosions. so you now have from different
9:11 pm
parts of the russian media, talking to their own sources, sort of some beginning to be some varying accounts. of course, here in st. petersburg is where the families are viewing the bodies that have been returned here. so potentially in st. petersb g petersburg, the local journalists here have access to some of those forensic experts that are working with the bodies as they've been brought back here. and as their families are viewing them, jo season. >> and nick, with that in mind, with those reports that are coming out from the russian media and, i guess, various media organizations around the world. we're getting daily updates, but there isn't a lot of official word about what alk which you willy happened. just a lot of speculation, unsourced reports from the russian press and others. how much frustration is that causing, in particular for the relatives of those onboard this flight? >> the few relative wes eve been able to speak to so far and close friends, really they're in
9:12 pm
a phase at the moment from our discussions with them, at least limited discussions that they're -- they're really coming to terms with a horrible tragic loss. and then, of course, you know, they've got to then identify their loved ones so they're in a very, very traumatic and difficult situation at the moment. we haven't heard family members so far complaining they're not getting adequate help or information, that none of this is happening fast enough. there's been an outpouring of support from the russian public in general and a desire to know what happened, but generaly speaking, it's reason to believe say in russia, the expectations are getting quick answers, people generally don't expect that, and certainly that's what officials are saying. the investigation is being led by egypt, that it will take several weeks, and that we kchbt judge anything until the final results are in. . however, that said, the
9:13 pm
president's spokesman has also been very keen to say don't draw unnecessary hypothetical links with the plane coming down and russia's military actions inside syria. obviously intended to sort of address that issue that isis itself has claimed responsibility for bringing this aircraft down. no evidence there to support that yet either. john? >> that's an important point, which we'll be discussing next with bob behr with me in the studio. nic robertson live are with us from st. petersburg. we've had this claim come out by isis that they took this plane down. what we're looking at now with this flight, apart from a handful of flights like twa 800, most planes break up because of mali malice, either a missile or a bomb. in your experience, how easy, how difficult would it be for snb to get a bomb on to a flight like this? >> it's extremely easy.
9:14 pm
the explosives can be hidden, for instance, in the wall of a suitcase. you can take an ipad and turn it into a detonator. just simply put it along the side case. you can get a pound of explosives. getting explosives through airport security, if there's no nitrogen testing where they swab the suitcases, it's carely easy. in an airport like sharma sharmal sheikh, there's no way to make sure the airport staff are 100% -- aren't fundamentalists at that point. >> i've flown out of that airport. it wasn't brisling with security when i was there. this highlights a wink link in international air travel. you can have all the security you want in the united states and europe, but you get these airports outside of the system, it makes it very easy to get
9:15 pm
something on to a plane. >> even the united states it's easy. you can't keep track of all airport staff. people can get through the security checks. who know what is goes through people's head. a convert to the islamic state can put a bomb on. >> where does the investigation go? >> right now, the key is the residue. you've got to find the fuel that could have set this explosion off. plas teak is the most obvious. the to look at the baggage. it wouldn't necessarily be on the passengers. if it were in the hold, the panels would be shielded from the explosive blast by the suitcases. so they actually have to find the suitcases where a bomb had gone off. they could do it eventually.
9:16 pm
>> you have the egyptians here, you have the russians, you have the french. the irish are there because the plane was in ireland, i think. who's in charge, who's running the show, and is that just simply too many people calling the shots on the ground? >> i think it's too many. look at pan am 103, there's still a dispute. you have the scottish appeals court said it was a travesty of justice. we can't agree on lockerbie. egyptians to give us a - straight-up answer, whether it was an explosion, we may not get it. >> we're kind of seeing that now, aren't we? moscow claims, coming out of cairo, all these unsourced reports. we had this isis skred that was ridiculous. the plane was at 31,000 feet, it was out of the range of the shoulder-rocket a missiles that they have. how did it muddy adequaters?
9:17 pm
>> it muddied it because they didn't give any key piece of evidence. something that would give some sort of credibility to this tape. they have been known to claim attacks that they had nothing to do with. so i put no value in the tape at this point. >> could another group be responsible for this? >> al qaeda in yemen. they could get this on. could they have claimed it in the name of the islamic state? absolutely. there's no pattern to claims and some people claim them, some people don't. you have the indian airlines that was blown up, korean airlines, you have lockerbie, same way. >> so a credible claim isn't -- >> it doesn't add -- >> this happened about 25 miles from the israeli border. that's one of the closely watched pieces of dirt in the dirt in the world. what would the israelis be feeding into this right now and how concerned would they be that
9:18 pm
something like this could po ten rlly happen so close. >> a surface to aramisle they would have picked up and they would have said something by now. the only way to get a surface to aramisle these groups is by stealing from the egyptian military. and there's been no reports of that. i think we can discount the missile at this point. and we really have to go back to looking for evidence there was a bomb on this plane. it may have been the tail, we don't know. the fact that it's sinai is what concerns me the most. it's a war zone. >> just because it's so volatile. >> and there's a civil war going on in egypt. it's the kind of place where a plane gets blown up in the air. >> and you're talking surface to missile you're talking like the m-17. >> not an sa-7 or anything like that, no. >> a short break here. when they come back, buy low, sell high. but not in ohio. after voters say no to legalizing marijuana. the issue in the financial controversy just ahead.

>> welcome back. voters in the u.s. state of ohio just said no to legal pot. on tuesday, they rejected a ballot measure to legalize marijuana for both recreational and medical uses. details now from cnn's stephanie elam. >> reporter: john, voters in ohio decided to pass on legalizing marijuana. this was the first time in the country voter's history they had a chance to legalize recreational and medical use at the same time. called issue 3, it would have given commercial growing rights to just ten farms. nick lachey, an nfl player, and a fashion designer and even president william taft's great, great grand nephews were all poised to cash in if the amendment passed. but the initiative had an uphill battle with some ohioans who support legalization saying issue 3 wasn't the way to go since it would line the pockets of so few. there was also issue 2 on the ballot, an anti-monopoly
9:24 pm
countermeasure specifically designed to defeat issue 33. ohio would have been the fifth state to legalize recreational marijuana and the 24th to legalize medical marijuana. john? >> thank you. the co-direct of the rand drug policy research center. this measure was defeated by a pretty wide margin. were voters saying no to legalized marijuana or just refusing a government-controlled monopoly of marijuana? >> well, john, they weren't voting on a government-run monopoly, just to step back. as you know, a lot has been happening with marijuana policy in the states these past few years. while marijuana remains prohibited under federal law, a handful of states have passed initiatives, only removing the prohibition on marijuana, but also letting more-profit companies come in and produce and regulate marijuana --
9:25 pm
producing and selling, but it's all regulated by the state. the state determines who gets the lie spence what was voted on in ohio took it a step further. there, only those individuals who put money into the ballot initiative, essentially, they would have been able to produce commercially. and so the government would not have had the ooblt to choose who actually does the production. so that's why what was voted on in ohio is very different than what was voted on in the other states. >> why did they go for that different type of scheme compared to every other state and what looks to be another 16 states which are headed down the road of legalization? >> in ohio, there are a number of individuals trying to make money. they each put in a certain amount of money to bank roll the initiative. if it were to pass, they would have been the only individuals able to produce marijuana for the commercial market. so they would have been able to make profits off of that. it was an investment for them
9:26 pm
and it didn't pay out. >> okay. it was all about the money. they took the gamble and they lost. i think they put up about $20 million in that initiative and it did not pay out. but they will say that that ballot measure would be back as soon as next year. thanks for being with us. appreciate it. >> john, thank you very much. still to come here, preparing for godzilla el nino after the worst drought on winter. california braces for a wet and wild winter. also a little girl with an incurable disease makes a heart breaking decision. go to hospital or go to heaven? life of now with the skin of then olay total effects vitamin-enriched. to fight the 7 signs of aging. in 4 weeks, skin looks up to 10 years younger. 7 in 1 from the world's #1 olay. your best beautiful ugh! heartburn! no one burns on my watch! try alka-seltzer heartburn reliefchews. they work fast and don't taste chalky.

>> welcome back. the headlines this hour. a new poll shows a tight race in the u.s. presidential election if they were held today. in a hypothetical matchup, an nbc/wall street journal survey shows front-runners ben carson and hillary clinton tied at 47%. meantime, republican donald trump who slipped to second in the national polls, he's out with a new book. it's call eed "crippled america" russian state media says no traces of explosive devices have turned up so far in the debris of metro jet flight 9268. meantime, as a precautionary measure, the u.s. embassy in cairo has told employees to stay away from the sinai peninsula until the investigation is complete. the pentagon said the u.s. and russia conducted a communications test while flying over syria. reports say a pentagon spokesman denied russian media accounts that the two countries held a joint training exercise.
9:31 pm
the spokesman said the test was part of an agreement to avoid conflict in syrian air space. the iran's supreme leader is clarifying his country's death to america chant. al khameni says it's aimed at the government and its policy, not american individuals. khamenei says relations between u.s. and iran are not normalized. yemen has been deluged after a rare tropical stort hit on tuesday. the storm dumped at least a year's worth of rain and much more in some parts. mud slides and flash flooding with a major threat in the country's dry rugged terrain. people tried to rescue some who were rescued in a car. but we cannot confirm the a authenticity of the video. >> meantime, fog is a big problem across much of europe and the united states.
9:32 pm
we're looking at some soupy conditions for some people. >> indeed, it does. it's widespread across two different continents. here's a look at atlanta right now. and there's a key thing missing. that's the top half of many of the building. there are many sky scrapers hidden underneath that fog. atlanta is not the only area that is dealing with some fog. this was earlier on tuesday. you see the bright white color, that's actual clouds. but the lighter almost grayish tone, that was fog. it's very widespread across much of the southeast and even parts of the midwestern united states. as we go into wednesday and even on thursday, we're dealing with similar conditions, cities like atlanta, nashville, chicago, even washington, d.c. going to be dealing with visibility of two miles or less. same thing again as we transition into thursday. many of the same cities, this time including new york city into memphis. it's not just the united states.
9:33 pm
europe has also been dealing with a lot of fog. same thing, the brighter whites, that would be the clouds, especially around the storm system. but some of the gray areas, that was the fog earlier on tuesday. wednesday morning, copenhagen, areas like leads, manchester, hamburg, even sweden going to be dealing with very intense fog as we transition into thursday. then it starts to just become more of a western europe issue. now the reason for a lot of this fog is the type of weather that we've been having. so let's take a look. typically, when you have a lot of fog like this, you've got a lot of wet ground. you've seen a lot of rain in a lot of places. that surface becomes completely saturated. when it does at night, those skies clear back out. all of that heat then rises back up and allows your dew point temperature to match with your actual evening temperature. and that's what causes a lot of the radiation fog that sits at the surface. and again, that's what we've been seeing in a lot of these areas. so one other thing to notice is
9:34 pm
also the pattern. because it's been very warm and very moist in a lot of these places, especially very warm pulling up that gulf moisture into parts of the eastern half of the country. but the temperatures have also been warm. 20 degrees above average. however, john, out to the west, it's been very cool out in your neck of the woods. and also a lot of moisture. that's why we've been seeing a lot of the snow and rein. that's actually been good news. a lot of the ski resorts are going to be opening up in just a few days from now. snow is exactly what they were hoping for. >> absolute my. a bit of moisture a bit of cold. there you go. good to hear. here in california, there's a new sense of urgency, el nino expected to be a big one. crews are scrambling to clean up roads in some areas which have been slammed by recent storms. more rain is expected courtesy of the el nino weather pattern, which many fear could be extra strong this year. >> l.a. county public works crews making sure that every
9:35 pm
single storm drain is completely clear. and they got an ominous look at what el nino could do when a storm went through here just about two weeks ago. a thunderstorm bounded northern los angeles county. cars becatrapped when mud gushe downhill sides. l.a. called in heavy equipment to clear roads,s. in a way, they're fighting water with water to clear huge milk shakes of muck in storm drains. >> really, our charge this year is to really emphasize and to increase that awareness. >> the public works director, like her counterparts throughout california is touring danger zones, bracing for el nio. >> we know that these natural disasters and extreme events are going to happen. it's just what we can do a better job at. and we all can prepare and take care of each other to minimize losses and damages. >> here's the latest national weather service el nino warp popping. >> october sea surface temperature continues to reflect warming across the tropical, central and eastern pacific
9:36 pm
ocean. >> based on waters now 2 .4 degrees celsius, this el nino is just behind the 1997-1998 e el nino event. that season, 30 inches of rain cascaded on to los angeles. so now county works crews are digging out ahead of el nino, clearing 82,000 catch basins and 3300 miles of storm drains. a road supervisor warns argues stay away of fly zones. >> a cliff or a mountainside stuck in a mud side during this storm we had heavy storms and people are unaware. they got caught up in heavy mud slides. >> the national weather service says el ninos usually peak from january to march. but don't be surprised if some super heavy stuff starts to come down in december.
9:37 pm
s. >> in an interview with abc, whew l robin williams himself, in august of last year, his wife says he had been sober for eight years aechb wasn't depressed. couldn't be cured? was sick and- what if one day your 5-year-old said she didn't want to go to the doctor anymore. instead, she wanted to go to heaven. what would you do. here's elizabeth cohen. >> what princess are you today? >> cinderella. >> julian that snow has a
9:38 pm
neuromuscular disease that's slowly taking her life. she can't walk or breathe on her own or even use her hands to play with glitter. >> there's no such thing as too much. >> the next time julianna gets a cold or any infection, her body will be too weak to fight it off. >> what did doctors tell you are likely to happen if she gets another cold. >> she will most likely die if she gets another cold. are you okay? >> julian that's doctors presented her parents with two devastating options -- julian that could die at home in her pink princess room made comfortable, surrounded by family, or she could go to the hospital where treatment likely couldn't save her, or even if it did, she would likely have a terrible quality of life. >> everyone told us there is no right answer. >> so michelle and steve asked julianna something almost no parent could even fathom. when she was just 4 years old,
9:39 pm
they asked her what she wanted to do, go to the hospital or go to heaven? >> you blogged about it. let's take a look. me, julianna if you get sick again do you want to go to the hospital or stay home. julianna, not the hospital. me, even if that means you will go to heaven if you stay home? julianna, yes. me, and you know that mommy and daddy won't come with you right away. you will go by yourself first. julianna, don't worry, god will take care of me. me, and if you go to the hospital, it may help you get better and let you come home again and spend more time with us. i need to make sure you understand that. hospital may allow you to have more time with mommy and daddy. julianna, i understand. >> she told her parents she hated the hospital, especially a procedure called naso tracheal suction. >> you stick it up past tdown te
9:40 pm
nose, past the throat as deep as you can go and and start suctioning. if it was a choice between me and one of the other tech, she would ask me. >> could you do that again? >> if i had to, i could. >> do you think it would save her life to do it again? >> i don't think so. >> steve and diana say they'll honor their daughter's wishes to die at home instead of go to the hospital. some parents wouldn't have consulted a child so young. you asked your daughter at the age of 4, what do you think, what should we do? >> julianna had to go through hundreds of rounds of nasotracheal suctioning. she know what is that is. so i think she has a right. i think she has a say. >> juliann a's daughter tells cnn she's an exceptionally wise 5-year-old and they support her parents' decision to carry out her wishes. for now, she's enjoying her life
9:41 pm
with her parent, her big brother alex ♪ let it go can't hold it back anymore ♪ ♪ let it go >> and her princesses. >> are elsa and ana, are they cousins? >> ier that. >> sisters. it's anap. >> oh, i said anna. i'm sorry. >> i forgive you. >> what are your realistic hopes for her for the rest of the time that she does have left? >> to be comfortable and be happy, feel loved. >> what's gotten you through it? >> faith. whoever you may pray with, wherever you may be, i guarantee for certain, god listens to you and me. faith that she will be in a better place when her time comes. and that we can go join her someday and this will all pass away. >> what do you want people to remember about julianna?

x1 from xfinity will change the way you experience tv. >> a death of a police officer back in september in illinois was suicide. there was a massive manhunt after he was found shot to death in a wooded area. he radioed police headquarters a short time earlier saying he was chasing three suspects. a law enforcement official says reports by the fbi and the medical examiner's officer point to suicide. for the first time since 1949, the leaders of taiwan and china are set to meet on saturday in singapore. taiwan's central news agency reports taiwanese president and
9:46 pm
his counterpart will discuss peace. beijing considers it a breakaway province and has threatened force should taiwan declare independence. matt rivers following this for us from hong kong. he joins us now live. and matt, it seems this meeting has as much to do with an upcoming election in taiwan as it does trying to improve relations between taipei and beijing. >> that's right, timing is everything. and let's start with those national elections. there are scheduled to be held next january. and many people are speculating that the party that is currently in power in taipei is using the timing of this meeting to hopefully bolster its chances at winning the general election next year. they would hope that by strengthening ties between taipei and beijing, specifically economic ties as it has done over the past eight years or so since that party has been in power, that could further improve the taiwanese economy.

and as we know, politics 101. when the economy does well generally speak, the incumbent party. they would much rather deal with the current administration that's in power. the opposition power that's going up against the incumbent party. they would rather not deal, as you mentioned, with a sovereign country, not something that beijing is willing to accept, even threatening the use of force. >> sit clear at this point who made the first move here and what is expected to come of this meeting? >> taiwanese officials told cnn a little bit earlier, the current administration in taiwan
9:48 pm
that they first made the pitch. it wasn't until recently 245 china agreesed to the high-level meeting only if it took place in a third-party country and that brings us to where we are right now. so far details have been relatively scarce. there's no binding experience that comes oit of it. there's certainly an historic meeting that takes place. what comes out of it remains to be seen. >> justin trudeau will be sworn in as canada's 23rd prime minister in the coming hours. the 43-year-old father of three and his liberal party won majority two weeks ago, ousting stephen harper's conservatives. mr. trudeau is the son of the

makes this new deal different. it was a four-year production deal with hbo which is owned by the media company tienl warner. he'll be able to do a viariety f he wants to. it will start with short form digital content. so what does that mean? it means he'll be able to weigh in, he'll be able to comment on current events and whatever is going on in the world with two ofive-minute long web videos that he'll develop and write that he might narrate. but might not actually appear on camera for. you can imagine a video that john stewart makes about a debate, he writes it, scripts it, records the audio for it but animation appears in order to tell the story. he's working with a cloud graphings company in order to create these kinds of web videos. and they'll go online on hbo's apps. they might not ever appear on hbo's television channel, but instead they'll appear on the apps.

10:01 pm
white house and a new poll shows the dead heat between a top democrat and republican if the election were held today. hill clinton and ben carson are tied at 47% each. donald trump is back on the attack after losing his front-runner status. >> ben carson is tightening his grip on front-runner status. 25% of gop view ben carson. >> our strength is in our unity and we need to stop listening to the purveyors of division who are trying to make us think there's a war going on with everything. >> taken together, the two outsiders dominate the field. draws 52% support. >> if you add ben and myself, we're beating everybody by a lot. >> i continue to keep doing what
10:02 pm
i've been doing. >> not to be outdone, trump celebrated his own book release today and took a swipe at the man on top of the polls. >> he's a different kind of a person. my book is very hard hitting. you look at ben, he's very weak on immigration and he wants to get rid of medicare. >> trump predicted jeb bush doesn't have what it takes to win the white house. >> can jeb make a comeback? i think it's very hard. >> and said it's time for some of his gop opponents to give up the fight. >> if they're at 0 or 1% or 2%, they should get out. >> with the candidates at odds with each other on how to move forward, president obama is mocking the entire field. >> if you can't handle those guys, you know, then i don't think the chinese and the
10:03 pm
russians are going to be too worried about you. >> while trump complains, it's the democrats that have it easy. >> hillary clinton? no tough questions. why didn't they ask about bill. why didn't they ask about all the different things. hillary had only softballs all night long. it was like this here, hillary, hit this one over the park. >> he'll be in new hampshire where he's filing his paper work where he'll appear officially on the ballot. >> joining me now, cnn political commentator also contributing editor for atlantic media. so i guess if we wanted to know how donald trump would deal with no longer being the front-runner and coming in at number two, we now know. he doesn't deal with this very well. this is so crucial that he's not a winner. if he's not a winner, he's got some problems. >> his attacks on ben carson
10:04 pm
have been really scattered. first he attacked hids religion, which i thought was bizarre and offensive. now he kind of mentioned that carson is weak on immigration and mentioned the medicare comment. he seemed to be throwing out a whole bunch of stuff. this is the way donald trump is. he kind of improvises. it's difficult to see what the actual strategy is in some of this stuff. >> up with of the attractions to many of his supporters is here's a guy who knows how to win. here's a guy who knows how to do the deal. he's popular, he's been in this race and he's out front and he's the guy who everyone should be following because he's the number one guy. the number one guy suddenly becomes the number two guy, what sort of problems does that present for him going forward? does he lose his entire reason -- you know, entire appeal of his campaign? >> well, he has a base of voters. and i think they are noncollege educated but more secular voters.
10:05 pm
carson is doing well with the van jell calls. the same group of supporters, people who are economically frustrated. i think trump still right now has a base of those supporters. >> you mention he's gone after carson as being a little bit scattered. a little soft, i guess, if you can compare to the ore attacks. tlfrp comments that he made to bloomberg, which i thought were quite interesting. listen to this. >> i think he's a highly overrated person. i called him a lightweight. i think h' he's a lightweight. i hope i'm wrong about that. guys like you -- and i'm not referring specifically to you. you a little bit, to be honesting but i watched somebody on joe's show this morn, he's fawning off them. he says how handsome he is.
10:06 pm
i don't know. i think i'm better looking than he is. am i better looking than him? >> yeah, this is kind of classic donald trump. when does this insult throwing start to wear then? >> i don't know. he's been doing it since he's entered the race several months ago. although he's dropped a little bit, you know people know that his schtick ises like this right now. to me, the bigger story is why isn't rubio rising in the polls more given the fact that the republican elites have really been fawning all over him, especially since that debate performance. what's striking is you look at the national polls and even the polls in the early states, you still see a disconnect between a political elite talk about rubio now as the front-runner and a guy who is way behind in the polls.
10:07 pm
>> everyone says how huge he is. >> the huge disconnect between donors and ordinary republican voters who still are sticking with trump and carson, despite the fact that the republican accomplishment thinks the idea of nominating either one of these guys is insane. >> the establishment, they were behind for a while, jeb bush, continually mocked by trump. trump really got under his stin. he's rebooted his campaign. he's trying to get fired up. he did an interview with cnn and he's trying to hit back to trump. listen to what he had to say earlier with us. >> he's run for president twice and quit. and i've run for governor in the biggest swing state and won twice. i know how to win. i've done it. i actually know how to govern,
10:08 pm
which is going to be an attribute when we get closer to the election. >> so for the record, for donald trump, you're not quitting? >> no. i mean, do we have to talk about donald trump? no, i' not quitting. the sad fact is, yes, we do. the guy continues to suck out the oxygen. is it almost too late to make that connection to voters? he's gone from front-runner status. that's not budging pretty much nationally. is he out of time? >> i think it's pretty close. they put money into ads that were specifically designed to bring him up in the polls. his message is wrong for where the republican party is now. no matter what he says he's mr. establishment. his father was president, his brother was president.
10:09 pm
i really think he's not been able to tap into where prune voters are right now. >> he's a bad politician. he doesn't have a good message. if his name were not jeb bush and he had not been able to raise huge sums of money based on his father and brother's kind of donor network, we would never be talking about him in the first place. it's an incredible sense of entitlement that he could essentially raise money off his father and brother. >> and now it could be over fairly soon. thanks. we move on now. the clues are still not adding up to one single explanation.
10:10 pm
russia says the tail was found about three miles from the rest of the debris. that could further show the plane broke apart in midair. a newspaper report that somebody on the back of the plane showed trauma from an explosion. but investigators say they found no trace of an explosive device in the wreckage. let's get more now, nic robe robertson live from st. petersburg. let's get into these reports in the mugs media, which have come out in the last couple of hours about the bodies. whoo that might mean in terms of an explanation to the crash. >> this the cockpit reporter, the unexpected sound that caused an event that caused the plane to go down rapidly before the air crew could issue an emergency seeps to be center ises on one of two things. either a bomb onboard or that
10:11 pm
the tail section that had been nit a prior crash that had been potentially graphed as recently as may this year shows a potential for that tale fin to repair, not to appear as solid as it had been mechanically assessed, perhaps the tail of the aircraft broke off. they hering from their sources that the types of injuries that the passengers received in this aircraft fall into roughly two cat gores. those in front have a burn and trauma injuries, they say, indicative offaling from the sky. those in the back of the aircraft have explosionive injuries, injuries that have
10:12 pm
shows that there are metal fragments impacted in their bodies. now, we also heard from the task news agency in russia that states the test from the explosive residue have come back negative. and the bodies that have been tested as of earlier yesterday, have also come back showing no indications of explosive impact on those bodies. russian officials here at the moment caution that we really have to wait until we get to the end of the investigation before conclusions can be drawn. friendsic experts are working with those bodies here. it's reasonable in the way the sources operate, journalists inside russia potentially the st. petersburg newspaper has
10:13 pm
close sources to the forensic teams doing the investigation here. but it really is conjecture at this stage. but we can see the way the russian media is reporting this story. these are the two lines of thought. >> all of this just speculation for the families, the victims of this flight, not easy for them to be going through all of this. thank you. and the fiery air crash on saturday has some similarities with another air disaster. this one off the coast of long island, new york, in 1996. we have more on the similar circumstances and the rumors vournding most tragedies. >> reporter: the metro jet crash in egypt, killing all 224 onboard feels eerily familiar to another major disaster, the 1996 explosion of twa flight 800 off long island. peter golds was one of the chief
10:14 pm
ntsb investigators of that disaster. like the metro jet crash, satellite imagery captured a midair heat signature. >> we had that same occurrence at twa flight 800, a satellite picked up the signature and it indicated, it confirmed for us what eyewitnesses had seen, that there was a fire ball. but. >> but it didn't explain why. it was simply a clue. also shared between the two disasters, unexplained split second sounds on the flight data recorders before they stopped recording. the similarities leave gultz to believe a possible rupture in the fuel tank, which caused the twa crash may also be to blame in the russian plane disaster. investigators found much of the main debris field close together, but three miles away was the tail section. that holds another clue. possible structural failure in. in november 2001, the air bus' tail hit the tarmac on landing. the plane was repaired, but the
10:15 pm
clear break from the rest of the debr debris raises this possibility. >> it could have been a structural failure of the plane that ruptured the fuel tanks. so the explosion could have been coming after whatever the event that initiated the breakup. >> flight tracking data shows the plane did slow down significantly before the crash, but many outside experts discount a stall. a stall can prove disastrous, like this one in 2013. the 747 kwar goe plane left bagram air face in afghanistan. it stalled and crashed shortly after takeoff, killing all seven americans onboard. the heat signature clue could also signal some sort of fire damage in the cargo hol. in 1996, value jet flight 592 took off with emergency oxygen generators improperly stored that caused a fire and it crashed. >> it could have been something going on in the cargo hold. we don't know what they were carrying.
10:16 pm
investigators will look at those suspects. until they dismiss them, it's going to be a mystery. >> the result is that the flying public grows more concerned and also there are growing conspiracy theories. john? >> kyung, thank you. thank you. iran's chant of death to america has been around for decades, but t khamenei says it's not to be taken literally hp he says it means death to american policy, death to arrogance. he has emphasized iran and the u.s. have not normalized relations despite the landmark deal. ohio voters reject legalizing marijuana and pro medical and recreational use. details on this controversial measure are just ahead. also, comedian and former "daily

owned by investors backing the campaign to legalize the crash crop. tv and music shart nick leshay, frosty rucker, even even president william taft's great, great grand nephews were all poised to cash in if the amendment passed. but the initiative had an uphill battle with some ohioans who support legalization saying issue 3 wasn't the way to go since it would line the pockets of so few. there was also issue 2 on the ballot, an anti-monopoly countermeasure specifically designed to defeat issue 3. ohio would have been the fifth state to legalize recreational marijuana and the 24th to legalize medical marijuana. >> former facebook president shawn parker is backing an initiative that would make marijuana legal for recreational use legal for 21 and older. some of the proceeds would fund

10:25 pm
variety of things if he wants to. he can develop tv shows, movies, but he'll start with web videos or what hbo calls short-form digital content. what does that mean? it means that he'll be able to weigh in, he'll be able to comment on current events and whatever is going on in the world with two to five-minute long web videos that he'll develop, he'll write, he might narra narrate, but might not actually appear on camera for. you could imagine a video that jon stewart makes about a debate where he writes it, he scripts it, he records the audio for it, but then animation actually appears in order to tell the story. he's actually working with a cloud graphics company in order to create these kinds of web videos. and they'll go online in hbo's apps. it's as if stewart has conquered one medium. he conquered television. he had many years on "the daily show" and now he's off for his next act trying out the internet instead. see if he can instead do a daily

10:32 pm
brought rt plane down. ohioans rejected a ballot measure that would have allowed a limited number of farms to grow marijuana. the controversial initialive was backed by a number of investors including a pop star and a football player. a four-year deal with hbo will show case jon stewart's talents on the digital platforms with the potentialtial for films and tv ventures. takata has ben hit with a massive fine for failing to acknowledge air bag problems. the auto parts maker was fined $70 million and could face an ald decisional $130 million penalty if it fails to adhere to safety measures. they must also stop selling components similar to those that caused malfunctions. they were linked to seven dpets in the united states, one in malaysia and were the subject of huge recalls.
10:33 pm
regulators warned that this is far from the end of their legal problems. >> this is just one of many fines that u.s. regular layer tos have already asked takata to play. earlier in the year, they were slapped with $14,000 a day. they're also under investigation by the u.s. justice department. more fines could come there and the company is em broimed in a number of private lawsuits, some of which have already been settleding but none of this is good news for the company. >> honda was takat a's biggest cust my. they fired the maker. any other news? >> honda did dump the company. they said they expect their suppliers to can act with integrity at all times and we're deeply troubled by this apparent behavior by one of our suppliers. the question i want to raise
10:34 pm
here is that takata have made lots of auto parts through the years, but the big thing that consumers and auto makers now face is whether or not they still feel safe ewing takat a's air bags. eight deaths, this is no small number. building that confidence will take some time. >> this is a company which has a lot of trouble, a lot of problems still to come. thank you for being with us. >> from air bags to volkswagen and the troubles for that auto maker just got a whole lot worse. they're still reeling from the diesel emission scandal. they said they set fuel consumption figures too low when certifying some models. they said i regrets the error and will begin discussing ways to fix this issue with the relative authorities. meantime, japan post holdings is having a pretty good day.
10:35 pm
its stock surged as much as 19%. the commercial public offering was part of a deal that saw the japanese government spin off and also sell the postal operators inshurps and banking subsidiaries. still part of a wider government brook to privatize state-owned company. trying to grow the economy and get some life back into it. the triple ipo raised $12 billion for the japanese government. bally's airport is closed until thursday because of the volcanic ash cloud. tremors are being recorded continuously and more ruptures are expected. thousands of travelers were stranded in bali in to july because of eruptions from another volcano in east java. for the first time since china's sil war ended 66 years ago, chie china and taiwan will hold talks.
10:36 pm
it seems like it has as much to do with june coming election in taiwan than in improving relations. >> let's start with the national election you mentioned, set for next zblan taiwan. the party currently in power in taiwan is speculated it sees a political opportunity here by setting up this meeting with president xxi. they're hoping that will improve the party's chances of winning what is expected to be a tight general election come next january. if economic ties specifically can be improved between taiwan and between the mainland, then it would be the hope in the short term the economy would improve and therefore bolster the current ruling party's chances of rining an election, because when the economy is good, often times the votes vol low. as far as beijing is concerned,
10:37 pm
it has a stake in which party controls this country. the opposition party in next year's elections has openly stated that it is far less open to negotiating with beijing with some of those party members even openly advocating for taiwan to become an entirely separate sovereign nation independent of mainland china. beijing has threatened using force to stop that from happening. so the hope is they wouldn't even have to go that far. >> and you see this is all about in some ways beijing hoping to improve the economy in taiwan, keeping some friendly allies there in power. on the island. but there's also the potential blowback as well, because many in taiwan just simply don't want china to be the mainland, at least, beijing to be meddling in politics there. >> that's absolutely right. there's a very real suspicious that they don't want to become, let's say, another version of hong kong, which is, you know, basically ruled by china.
10:38 pm
they certainly do not want that. there were large protests. a student group took over the legislature in taipei for about a month, protesting what they called an unfair trade deal that was being negotiated between beijing and between taipei. the opposition party doing very, very well with many political experts even coming close to saying they could win next year's elections, ousting the current party leadership. so there is certainly evidence of many, many taiwanese people not being very much in favor of closer ties with beijing. so whether this work moves out politically for the current party in power in taiwan, it's kind of a gamble. >> president mao, of course, this will be his last term. trying to set it up so the nationals can remain in power, but they're way behind.

downing of the russian passenger plane is growing. new evidence shows the tail may have broken off in midair. plus, it's one for the record books, the presidents of china and taiwan have not had a meeting in miles per hour 60 years but they will meet this weekend, and trump is on the attack calling on the republican rivals to drop out of the race. welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm rosemary church. thank you for joining us. this is "cnn newsroom."
11:01 pm
and we begin in the sinai peninsula where investigators are finishing up their search. russian state media say the tail is sitting three miles from the rest of the debris, possibly an indication the plane came apart midair. the u.s. embassy in cairo is warning its employees to stay away from the sinai peninsula as a cautionary measure. meanwhile, representatives from the airline said there was no hint that the plane was in trouble until after it crashed. >> the plane, air bus a 320 is a reliable plane with protection systems that won't let the plane to go into overload, even if
11:02 pm
there were major errors in the pilot's control equipment. >> in the pilot doesn't report any faults on the plane, all that will be carried out is routine maintenance checks. up until the wreck happened, we were not received any reports or sos calls. >> now the focus is turning to the black boxes. maybe those can resolve the issues investigators keep turning up. nick robertson has more. >> reporter: another tough day for the families of victims. the process of identifying the bodies continues. what they are hearing in russian media at the moment, two different versions of potentially what killed their loved ones. did the plane break apart in the air because the tail section fell off because of a faulty repair, or was it because of a bomb on board. a st. petersburg newspaper, widely respected, reports that
11:03 pm
the injuries fall into two categories. those in the front of the aircraft, they say have burns and trauma type injuries indicative of falling from the sky. those at the rear have explosive trauma injuries, pieces of metal fragment in the bodies. their quoting their sources, and the forensic teams are examining the bodies here, the potential there for more information being provided. the task state news agency says, however, what they understand from their sources is that there's been no explosive residue found on the bodies and no indication of explosive damage to the bodies. so what people are hearing in russian and what will be painful for the families right now is not knowing precisely what brought down that aircraft. two different possibilities. and most experts are casting doubt on claims by isis that it brought down the metro jet
11:04 pm
plane. the terror groups affiliate in egypt has been active as ian lee reports. >> reporter: it may be isis's least known affiliate, but the terror group, sinai branch is deadly and sophisticated. here the aftermath of an army attack check point. in all, they've killed hundreds in drive by shootings and suicide attacks. those survivors captured are brutally executed, including an oil field worker beheaded in august. isis in egypt rose from the chaos and unleashed their wave of violence in 2013, not just in egypt, sinai region but across the country. the military and police carry out operations to hunt the militants down. >> it's been an operation for two years. and i don't think anybody, including within the egyptian
11:05 pm
military thinks they're suddenly going to disappear. >> it was late last year the terror group with numbers estimated in the low hundreds pledged allegiance to the isis leader. their weapons mainly coming from libya, another country rocked by instability and an isis presence. we've seen them target convoys with remote detonated bombs while suicide bombers hit outposts and military bases. the two most sophisticated weapons in their arsenal include russian made anti-tank missiles used in targeting tanks and a boat in the mediterranean. and shoulder launch surface to air missiles seen here, taking down an egyptian helicopter. analysts say what they don't posse possess are sophisticated missiles to take a jet from 30,000 feet like the one that
11:06 pm
crashed killing 224 people on board. >> isis has claimed responsibility, but that doesn't mean anything because, indeed, it could be part of psychological warfare. it has been played down saying it's more likely mechanical failure. ian lee, cairo. >> joining me to talk more about it is cnn safety analyst, david soucie. he is also a former faa safety inspector. thank you for being with us. the cause of this crash appears to be boiling down to a catastrophic maintenance issue or a bomb. what's your sense now of what have may caused the russian plane to crash in the sinai? >> it's very difficult at this point to make the distinction between the two. even narrowing it to those two
11:07 pm
is dangerous in an accident investigation. but between the two, i'm leaning more toward a mechanical failure or rupture of the frame hits than i am a bomb because the infrared flesh that they're reporting, the way that it came across and at the point of flight that it came across would indicate the plane came apart and slowed and then went down forward. typically in a bomb, the aircraft might accelerate. so there's still a lot to be looked at and determined, but that's the way that i'm leaning at this point. but they're close. >> another piece of information that's coming out, the tail of the plane was found separated from the rest of the body of the plane, five kilometers away, in fact, the largest piece of debris to be found. what does that tell you? >> well, it must have been at a high altitude when the tail came
11:08 pm
off which would be consistent with what we're learning from radar 24 and from this flash point, when the flash occurred. that would make sense that the tail came off separately. another thing that supports that argument is the fact that there isn't really any burn residue that's obvious on the pictures. there may be if you look at it more closely, but it doesn't appear to be what you might see as burn residue which tells us the tail may have come off before the explosion which would be consistent with a fuselage rupture. >> an interestingly, too, the inspection on the ground is going to be wrapped up wednesday. are you surprised that they are finishing up so early, and i wanted to get your assessment of how they've been running the investigation, the egyptians and the russians. >> i'm pretty pleased about the egyptians and russians and how they're working together. they have a good relationship and the investigators seem to be working well together for how to
11:09 pm
move this along. i am a bit concerned that they're out of there so quickly. there's a lot of clues and things that are small in nature that need to be looked at. but you have this pressure of the fact that this is not exactly a stable environment there to be doing an investigation. you'd normally be able to have more time to do this, but they're taking a lot of documentation and marking parts and getting that taken and photographed. they'll probably do this, what we call a dj tall investigation. they'll map it out in a digitj model and try to recreate it that. >> we also appreciate your analysis on this. many thanks. >> thank you, rosemary. and we move to asia and the presidents of china and taiwan will hold talks in an historic meeting on saturday. leaders of the two sides haven't met since the end of china's civil war in 1949. the meeting comes ahead of
11:10 pm
elections in taiwan, and matt rivers joins us with more on this meeting. matt, who initiated the meeting and how much does it have to do with the upcoming general elections? >> reporter: we know that both sides have been in negotiations to have a meeting like this one for years now. we spoke with officials close to the current administration in d taiwan earlier today, and they said negotiations to have this kind of meeting have been ongoing for two years. it was recently the chinese countered and said they were open to this kind of meeting as long as it was held in a third party country, a country that is neutral. that's where we are right now. as for how much of it has to do with upcoming elections you mentioned, you would not be surprised to know, no one has gone on the record with that, but you would not be off base in speculating that perhaps the
11:11 pm
ruling party in taiwan is hoping to capitalize off of this historic, symbolic meeting between these two leaders. the general election is about four months away. it's going to be held next january, and as of right now, poll numbers are not looking very good for the current party that is in power, and so it certainly wouldn't be off base to put out the idea that this current party that is currently in charge in taiwan could be hoping to capitalize, at least politically on this upcoming meeting. >> and matt, it's one thing to have a meeting like this. but what's expected to come out of it? >> as of now, both sides through their respective state media have said there will be no binding agreements that will come out of this meeting. nothing will be signed. there won't be any long-lasting accords. they have just said they'll be talking about peace, generally speaking. and so whether there will be anything that we can put our finger on and say this is a
11:12 pm
concrete item that has come out of this meeting, i think wouldn't be too likely. that said, the just symbolic nature of this meeting makes it important in and of itself, even if nothing comes out of it. the fact that it is just happening is truly historic. >> yes. it certainly is. matt rivers joining us there with the latest details. we appreciate that. turning to the united states now, authorities are expected to announce the death of a police officer in fox lake, illinois back in september was a suicide. police launched a massive man hunt after the lieutenant was found shot to death in a wooded area. he had radioed police head quarters a short time earlier saying he was chasing three suspects. a law enforcement official says reports by the fbi and the medical examiner's office point to decide. donald trump no longer the

11:18 pm
political commentator. as we just heard, donald trump is calling for jeb bush and other low polling candidates to drop out of the presidential race. what's your reaction is that and how do you think republican voters are likely to his call to essentially eliminate the competition? >> well, listen. this is the first time trump has been losing in consistent polls. he's going to continue to throw hay makers because that's what he does. he needs to bring the attention pack to him. he had a lackluster debate last week where it wasn't all about donald trump. so donald trump is good at making it all about donald trump. by making outrageous statements like this and saying hey, listen, you need to give up and let the rest of us duke it out, it makes news. we're talking about it now, and the more that trump is in the news, the more he is -- it's gratifying for him. that's what his whole campaign has been about.
11:19 pm
he's probably gotten about $50 million in media. he hasn't had to run a campaign ad because of statements like that. no one is taking that seriously. we are 14 weeks from the first time anyone casts a vote. for someone like jeb bush who has tens of millions of dollars still in his campaign coffers, it would be ridiculous for him to drop out now. >> let's listen to what jeb bush had to say in his interview. >> as it relate to donald, he's run for president twice, and quit, and i've run for governor in the biggest swing state and won twice. i know how to win. i've done it. i actually know how to govern which is going to be an attribute when we get closest to the election. >> so for the record, for druond
11:20 pm
trump, you're not quitting. >> do we have to talk about donald trump? he's entertaining and says funny things in the breaks, but in the debate, but i'm running for president of the united states, and it's a serious endeavor. i do it with joy. there's a lot of fun parts of it for sure. >> all right. so jeb bush saying he's not dropping out, but he doesn't appear 100% committed to this. he keeps talking about his experience as governor. when the voters have clearly turned their backs on political insiders. what does he need to do to turn things around for himself? what would your advice bo b to him? >> listen, jeb bush has dug himself into a hole. i think he's been completely blind sided by the trump factor. when jeb bush entered the race, he didn't expect to be running against someone like donald trump and his big personality. when you hear jeb bush say i'm having fun and this is joyous for me, no one buys that.
11:21 pm
did you see his body language? he's not having fun. the viewers do not -- the voters do not feel connected to him. he's having a tough time connecting with voters which is why he's polled in single digits on top of the fact that there's the aspect of this of being part of the bush dynasty. this is the wrong climate for jeb bush to run in. i don't know if he can turn it around. he's going to fight tooth and nail. he's establishment. he has money behindme him. ultimately, i don't see how he turns it around. he doesn't present well and the voters if they have not connected with him by now, i don't see how hay do moving forward, and if he continues to do interviews like that, where he has cooler things he could do rather than run for president, the voters look at that and say i don't think so, so i think jeb bush has a really tough hill to climb to turn this around to get
11:22 pm
out of the bottom of the barrel here for him in the polls, but there's 14 weeks. anything can happen. >> and i wanted to quickly ask you this. a new nbc news wall street journal poll shows if an election were held right now, hillary clinton would beat all the republican can candidates except ben carson. how will the republican machine respond to this given he's the candidate to go toe to toe with clinton. >> we are so far away from a national election head to head that those polls are really insignificant. at this point last cycle, i believe hermann cain was winning nationally, and we saw what happened to him. like i said before, a week is an eternity in politics. we're over a year out from the general election. so the fact that ben carson is leading hillary clinton now, in two weeks it could be someone else. so we don't take too much stock
11:23 pm
in those polls at this point. >> always great to get your political analysis. appreciate it. >> my pleasure. tuesday was election day in several u.s. states. here's a break down of a new of them. in kentucky, matt bevan was elected governor. he made headlines last year when he ran against mitch mcconnell and lost. he beat the kentucky attorney general on tuesday. >> this is a great night for the republican party and the state of kentucky. i'm also grateful for the fact that even more importantly, this is a great night for conservatives in the state of kentucky. >> and in mississippi, phil bryant coasted to victory. his opponent was robert gray, a truck driver.

liquor and beer to be sold in grocery stores. other states don't allow that, and similarly, we have a state considering only allowing marijuana to be grown by ten particular businesses. it's really a question of what the state wants, but quite frankly, we would say that it should be treated more like alcohol and there should be competition among producers and we should ensure that only the best ones are the ones that are able to operate and produce the products that ohio residents will be able to access. >> colorado legalized recreational marijuana in 2012 through a ballot measure. in houston texas, voters repealed a law to protect lesbian, gay, and transgender people from discrimination. they passed a law last year and conservative activists spent millions trying to get rid of it. when ad warned it would allow, quote, troubled men to go into

tail was damaged back in 2001. these are live pictures in st. peterberg. the flowers grow by the minute. also in egypt, at least three policemen are dead after an explosion outside a police officer's club. that's according to state-run media. it happened in northern sinai on wednesday. other officers were injured. there's no word yet on who's responsible for that blast. for the first time since 1949, the leaders of taiwan and china are scheduled to meet saturday in singapore. taiwan's central news agency creates the two will does peace. taiwan split from the mainland government. beijing considers it a break away province.

zblrch volkswagen's trouble just got bigger. the german auto maker now says it had set carbon dioxide emissions and fuel consumption figures too low when certifying some models. they say they regret in new discovery and will discuss ways to fix the issue with the relevant authorities. right now two huge business stories are influencing tokyo's nikkei which gained almost one and a third percent on wednesday. japan post holdings, surged as much as 26% during the market debut on wednesday. it was japan's biggest initial public offering of the year, and plenty of investors rushed to get a piece of it. while another japanese company, takata is struggling after selling faulty air bags. the stock dropped more than 13
11:33 pm
%. will ripley is in japan covering the initial public offering and we also are in hong kong covering a ctakata's trouble. how will the company cope under this massive fine? >> rosemary. this is one of many cash penalties that they face. the company has been forced to pay fines in the u.s. regulators slapped a fine on them earlier this year on the company and it's currently being investigated by the u.s. department. all of this has been terrible for takata's bottom line. the company has posted losses. that makes it difficult to pay the fines going forward. today the stock was down as much as 20%. it gained a little bit back at the end of the day, but overall,
11:34 pm
the company is still down for the year. >> yeah, and it's worth noting that honda has now sacked takata. let's talk about that as well as what the company is doing to try to correct all the problems with it faulty air bags. >> yes. honda is one of takata's biggest customers. losing that business isn't great for the company. honda issued a statement saying it expects its suppliers to act with integrity at all times and we are deeply troubled by this behavior by one of our suppliers. going forward, auto makers and consumers will have to think about whether or not they're ready to use these air bags again. rebuilding that confidence will take quite a bit of time. >> all right. good to talk with you, sophia. i want to turn to will ripley now who is governoring japan post holdings. will, this was a very successful
11:35 pm
stock market debut. talk to us about that. 19% increase there. what's the back story to this and what impact will it have on japan's economy? >> yeah. as far as day one goes, this is truly a success for the retail investors, the japanese government was targeting. 80% of the japan post ipo was for the japanese and 20% was allocated for foreign investors. it's a place where people drop off their mail at these red boxes but it's more than that. it's also a place where people deposit their money. it's one of japan's largest banks and it's also one of japan's largest insurance providers, the largest in some measures. this is a big part of everyone's lives. there are 24,000 branches like this one that's about to close. there are customers in here, and they're getting their mail.
11:36 pm
they're also using the atm. they could purchase insurance in this building here. so for people to be able to buy a stock in japan post, they're viewing this as an asset. something that is reliable and will turn a profit for many years to come, and given that people invest anywhere from $12 to $18 per u.s. share, depending on which company they invest in. all of those investors saw gains up as high as 33% for the insurance company. the question moving forward will be can the momentum continue, and will people get that return on their investment they're hoping for. japanese government hoping this will help stimulate the economy and other will spend money in other ways to boost the economy. >> presumably, that's what's going to happen. what are analysts saying about that? >> reporter: well, analysts say that they're going to have to look closely at the japan post
11:37 pm
performance moving forward. keep in mind, what investors want is a return on their investment, and revenue predictions for this up coming year, the predictions are down. the performance of the company is going to be certainly something in clear focus, but, again, this is an established commodity. this is an established brand in japan. this is something that people use every day in multiple aspects of their lives. it's viewed as a reliable investment. analysts seem to think that moving forward, certainly they don't expect double digit gains every day. they expect stable growth which is what retail investors in japan are looking for. >> will ripley joining us live from tokyo. many thanks to you. greece is beginning to send migrants to other european countries under the eu's relocation plan. the prime minister was on hand as the first group boarded a plane from athens to luxembourg. >> translator: we also have a

in some areas. mud slides and flooding are a threat. video reportedly shows people trying to rescue someone in a car. cnn cannot confirm the authenticity of this video. and volcanic ash is grounding flights at bali's international airports until thursday. officials say tremors are being recorded continuously, and there's a good chance of more eruptions. thousands of travelers were also stranded in bali in july due to eruptions from another volcano in east java. >> heavy fog is blanketing parts of the united states. alison is here to talk to us about this. this is extense i. >> it's going to affect a million people. sunday and monday, we had such bad fog in london, it delayed
11:44 pm
flights. it may not be that bad in london, but we're expecting bad fog in many areas. let's take a look at where we'll see some of the worst fog. i guess we'll take a look in just a minute. but we do expect to have some fog pretty bad in parts of the southeast. now, this was actually on tuesday. now, the bright white color that you can see in here, this is actually clouds, but the darker, more of a gray color, that is the fog. that's how widespread the fog was across much of this region. as we transition into wednesday and thursday, we're still going to continue to see some bad fog. cities like st. louis, chicago, atlanta, charlotte, and much of the midwest are going to be dealing with fog around one mile visibility or less. then as we transition to thursdays, same thing but a few different cities. now we factor in new york, washington and raleigh. europe, you're going to be dealing with a similar scenario. this was tuesday. you can see the brighter white
11:45 pm
to the west, but the gray engulfing most of france into russia was dealing with some fog. take a look at some of these numbers. wednesday and thursday, looking at cities like copenhagen, hamburg, germany, even around zurich could be dealing with heavy fog on wednesday and thursday. part of the reason for this is a lot of these areas have had a saturated surface. when it rains, you get water that comes down, and then at night the clear skies. that helps the heat move away. the temperature comes down closer to your dew point temperature and that helps to create some of the radiation fog we've been seeing in a lot of these areas, especially for several hours in the morning. we have all of that gulf moisture coming into parts of the southeast and above average temperatures. out of the west, a different story. cooler temperatures and coolest of the season for many of those areas. one good thing that has come out of it is the rain in parts of
11:46 pm
much needed california where they've been ravaged by wild fires for much of the year. starting to get rain and snow pack. take a look at the last couple years. we have seen below average snow pack in the sierra nevada mountains for years. 2015, low, but that will start to change as we go into the rest of the year. again, a lot of those areas have already picked up over a foot of snow. the good news is for a lot of the ski resorts along the west coast, they're off to a better start this year than the last couple of years. >> as long as the skiers are happy. thank you, allison. rising sea levels are a major concern for scientists and environmentalists, but now a new nasa study is raising questions about a potential source of the problem. cnn's brandon miller has more. >> reporter: we know that sea levels around the world are rising and current thinking is
11:47 pm
that part of that sea level rise comes from melting ice in antarctica, but one recent study from nasa scientists says that may not be the case. antarctica is a big place. roughly the size of the u.s. and mexi mexico combined. as you might expect, changes in its ice are not uniform across the entire continent. nearly all scientists agree that ice is being lost from the western part of antarctica and along its peninsula. on the eastern side, ice is being gained. where the study is different is they measure that the gaining of ice along eastern antarctica is outpacing the loss on the western side. what's behind this addition of ice? snowfalls that became heavier around 10,000 years ago. the scientists know this by looking at ice core data. that would mean that antarctica
11:48 pm
is not the contributing to sea level rise. there's several things to consider. we are already observing the affects of sea level rice in places like miami, where high tides are inundating parts of the city. also, even though this gain of ice has been occurring for thousands of years, it may not stay. the increasing rate of lost in western loss could outpace the gains in eastern antarctica. there's still a lot to learn about how antarctica is reacting to climate change. sea levels will continue to rise as it only makes up about 8% of the sea level rise we've observed. >> a team from sierra leon rediscovering the world after losing his sight. >> i'm seeing colors righter than i thought they should be. >> and wait until you hear what

>> we begin with new information on metro jet flight 9268. at least 33 bodies of victims from the crash have now been identified. that is according to russian state media. the first victim has been released to the family. meanwhile, the investigation into the crash of metro jet flight 9268 and the inconsistent clues aren't adding up. a st. petersburg newspaper reports that some bodies at the back of the plane showed trauma from an explosion, but investigators said there were no traces of an explosive device in the wreckage. also media reports the tail was found three miles from the rest of the plane. that could show the plane broke apart in midair. for more on the investigation, we want to turn now to erin
12:02 am
mclog lin who joins us. erin, we understand the ground investigation will be wrapped up in egypt wednesday which has surprised many analysts. what's the reason behind drawing this to such a sudden close? can we assume they've reached some sort of conclusion on what caused the crash, and what do we know so far? >> reporter: when it comes to what happened to flight 9268, it's probably best not to assume anything. egyptian authorities have been tight lipped when it comes to the details of the invest as well as the timetable for the investigation. what we do know has been coming in bits and pieces mainly from russian media sources, the latest from russian state media reporting the tail of the plane was found some three miles away from the rest of the wreckage. that's potentially significant, because we know that in 2001,
12:03 am
the same plane's tail struck a runway in cairo requiring repairs, and some say if the repairs were done incorrectly could lead to problems down the line. if fact of the matter we simply don't know what cause third down plane to break apart in midair. egyptian authorities urging people not to speculate. egyptian president gave a number of at the same times to british media outlet. in the interviews he called reports that the plane came down the result of a pom or missile projection as speculation. he also called the isis claim of responsibility to be pure propaganda. we know that authorities are analyzing the so-called black boxes. the cockpit voice recorder as well as the flight data recorder. those seen as critical to solving this mystery. no indication, though, as to
12:04 am
when we'll get answers or any sort of transcripts from a that analysis. >> and erin, what are egyptian authorities doing in terms of security in the aftermath of this plane tragedy? >> well, right now egyptian authorities telling us they have not increased security. when we arrived here last night, we saw no signs of increased security at the international airport or in the resort itself. interesting to note that earlier in the year there was an economic summit here. dignitaries in attendance said they noticed increased security there. there were check points. they were checking vehicles. tight security. we saw none of that when we arrived here last night. egyptian authorities saying because there's no indication that the plane went down as a result of terrorism at the moment. the u.s. embassy for it part putting out advice to u.s.
12:05 am
citizens not to travel to anywhere in the sinai until the investigation is complete. >> all right. erin mclaughlin bringing us up to date in egypt. the firy air cash on saturday has similarities with another disaster. this one off the coast of long island, new york in 1996. we have more on the similar circumstance and rumors surrounding both tragedies. >> reporter: the metro jet crash in egypt killing all 224 on board feels familiar to another disaster, the 1996 explosion of a flight off long island. like the metro jet crash, satellite imagery captured a midair heat significant. >> we had the same thing.
12:06 am
it indicated and confirmed what eyewitnesss had seen, that there was a fire ball. >> reporter: but it didn't explain why. it was simply a clue. also unexplained split second sound on the data recorders. it leads them to believe a possible cupturupture in the fu tank. investigators found much of the main debris field close together, but three miles away was the tail section. another clue. possible structural failure. in november 2001, the air bus's tail hit the tarmac. the plane was repaired. >> it could have been a structural failure of the plane that ruptured the fuel tanks so the explosion would have been coming after whatever the event
12:07 am
that initiated the breakup. >> reporter: flight data recordings show the plane showed down. a stall can prove problems like this one in 2013. the 747 cargo plane left afghanistan. it stalled and crashed shortly after takeoff, killing all seven americans on board. the heat significant clue could also signal some sort of fire damage in the cargo hold. in 1996, value jet flight 592 took off with generators improperly stored that caused a crash. >> there could have been something going on in the cargo hold. we don't know what they were carrying. investigators will look at all of those likely suspects. until they start eliminating them, it's going to be a mystery. >> reporter: cnn, los angeles. >> well, volkswagen's troubles just got bigger. still reeling from the diesel
12:08 am
emissions scandal, they now said they set fuel consumption figures too low when certifying some models. they say they regret the error and will begin discussing ways with the relevant authorities. in addition, u.s. regulators say some porsche sus may have been rigged as well, but volkswagen disputes that claim. all right. moving on now, and u.s. regulators have hit japan's takata corporation with a huge fine for selling millions of air bags with defects and failing to acknowledge the problem. will ripley is in tokyo and has more. this is a problem that spans the globe. what's takata doing about fixing it?
12:09 am
>> reporter: well, takata has been struggling to keep up with the replacement parts needed to get all of these air bags fixed. you're talking about 19 million air bags just in the united states affected by this recall. about 15 of them, 15 million of them, still need to be repaired, and some of the other several million that have been fixed, may need to be fixed again. this is really a staggering burden on takata in addition to the staingering $70 million fine. they could have to pay an additional $130 million if they don't change their procedures. their stock stumbled, and it's affecting drivers in japan. we drive a honda suv. we took it in yesterday. had no idea that our vehicle and the air bags in that vehicle needed to be replaced. it's a huge burden. in addition, honda, one of takata's biggest customers saying they're dropping the
12:10 am
company and they're deeply troubled by their behavior of producing a dangerous, faulty product, and even when apparently investigators were aware of it, they did little to fix it. the problem continued and now they have this situation and millions of drivers on the road all over the world, and especially those 15 million vehicles in the united states where people aren't sure if their cars are safe. they're not sure what's going to happen if they get into an accident. >> and will, let's turn to a positive story. the holdings. the stock market debut. what's the likely impact of that on the japanese economy? >> reporter: well, that's a good stock market story today. i'll walk you down the corner to my neighborhood post office. japan post which has 24,000 branches all over the country, they are a commodity in this country, and the initial day one opportunity for retail investors in japan to put their money into
12:11 am
this company, it was a huge success. 19%, far higher than what a lot of people were expecting on the first day of this stock offering. this reason is timpl. japan post is a part of our everyday lives here in japan. we drop off our mail at japan post post office. we use the bank. it's also japan's largest insurance company, and it's also one of this country's largest employers. some 200,000 people work there. for offering people an opportunity to put money in this company, it's regarded as a safe investment. it closed a couple of minutes ago. there was a line out the door just before closing as there often is every day. one fellow is in there using the atm. for people to be able to put their money into this, it's a $12 million ipo. they're hoping japanese investors can make money off the japanese stock market.
12:12 am
most of the money has been going to foreign investors. this is a chance for japanese, 85% allocated for japanese investors. so far so far. >> will ripley with the good, the bad, and the ugly out of tokyo. many thanks to you. i want to turn to houston, texas where voters have repealed a law. the city passed the houston equal rights ordnance, also known as hero, last year, and conservative activists spent millions trying to get rid of it, claiming it would allow, quote, troubled men to go into women's bathrooms and locker rooms. but supporters of the law called that fear mongering. the city's mayor spoke out after this vote. >> i've been an activist for more than 40 years. i have stood here in houston

we are just about one year away from the 2016 u.s. presidential election, and a new poll pitting the republican democratic front runners against each other shows a close race. in a hypothetical matchup, an nbc, wall street journal shows ben carson and hillary clinton tied at 347%. the poll was done before last week's republican debate. meanwhile, donald trump met with reporters in new york and unleashed name calling against his rivals. >> jeb, he lacks the quality that you need. i think marco rubio is highly
12:19 am
overrated. ben carson does not have that energy. marco doesn't show up to the united states senate. what jeb bush was saying, i don't know, but he didn't say it well. when the e-mail thing came up, sanders lost his campaign. marco rubio's personal finances are discredited. his personal -- all you have to do is look at his credit card. he's a disaster. he lives above his means. there's no question about that. >> with me now is republican cnn political commentator, thank you so much for joining us. as we just heard there, donald trump is calling for other low polling candidates to drop out. what's your reaction and how do you think voters are going to react to him calling to eliminate the competition. >> this is the first time he's been losing in consistent polls.
12:20 am
he needs to bring the attention back to him. he had a rather lackluster debate last week where he wasn't the standout. it wasn't all about donald trump. so donald trump is good about making it all about donald trump. by making outrageous statements like this and saying you need to give up and let the rest of us duke it out, it makes news. we're talking about it now. and the more that trump is in the news, the more -- it's gratifying for him. that's what his campaign has been around. he's been over about $50 million in media. he gets free media all the time for making statements like that. >> all right. let's listen to what jeb bush had to say, how he responded to the call to jump out in our cnn interview. >> as it relates to donald, roohe's run for president twice and quit, and i've run for governor
12:21 am
in the biggest swing state and won twice. i know how to win, and i know how to govern which is going to be an attribute. >> so for the record, for donald trump, you're not quitting? >> no. i mean, do we have to talk about donald trump? no. i'm not quitting. he's entertaining. he's fun. he says really funny things in the breaks, but in the debate, but i'm running for president of the united states. and it's a serious endeavor. i do it with joy. there's a lot of fun parts of it, for sure. >> all right. so jeb bush saying he's not dropping out, but he doesn't appear 10% committed to this. he keeps talking about his experience as governor when the voters have clearly turned their backs on political insiders. what does he need to do to turn things around? what would your advice be to him? >> listen. jeb bush has dug himself into a hole. i don't know if he can turn it around. he's going to fight for it.
12:22 am
he's establishment. he has money behind him. there are a lot of people who support him in the establishment that will prop him up, but i don't see how he turns this around. >> and i did want to quickly ask you this. in new nbc news wall street journal poll shows hillary clinton would beat all the republican candidates except ben carson right now. how is the republican party machine likely to respond to this new information given it appears he's the candidate to go toe to toe with clinton? >> we are so far away from a national election head to head like that. those polls are really insignificant. at this point last time, last cycle, i believe hermann cain was winning nationally. like i said before, a week is an eternity in politics. we're over a year out from the general election, so the fact that ben carson is leading hillary clinton now, in two weeks it could be someone else. so we don't take too much to be
12:23 am
in those polls at this point. >> always great to get your political analysis. appreciate it. >> my pleasure. >> iran's supreme leader is clarifying the meaning of the country's decade old chant of death to america. on twitter he says, and i'm quoting directly. it is clear it does not mean death of the american nation. this slogan means death to american policies, death to arrogance, but he has emphasized relations between the u.s. and iran are not normalized despite their nuclear deal. >> 20 years ago today the israeli prime minister was as is na -- assassinated. this was also the -- many feel things may have been different had he lived.
12:24 am
cnn's orn lieberman joins me with details on how he's being remembered today. what has been playing out there? >> reporter: well, there have been a number of ceremonies all week to remember him and everything he stood for and believed in. everyone here is aware that these come at a difficult time. there's violence and near daily clashes. it's difficult to see robin's vision, but this is when his followers say it's most important to believe and pursue his dream. >> the bullets that killed him, tore a hole in the delicate fabric of peace he was weaving that no one has managed to mend. 20 years have passed. the conflict between israelis and palestinians still grinding along. yet his daughter believes things could have been different.
12:25 am
>> if he stayed alive and was prime minister for a few more years, i think we open to the world during his tenure as prime minister. there were a lot of investments. there was a belief in israel. there was hope. >> reporter: the hope, evident in a rally in rabin square. tens of thousands of people came to remember how much he meant to the peace process and to israel, and to believe that even in these difficult times, there is still a chance for peace. >> there are supporters of my father's legacy, and there is hope. >> reporter: the funeral brought together egyptian, palestinian, and american officials in israel. it's hard to imagine a similar scene today. prime minister benjamin netanyahu with a very different vision of the region. >> reporter: israel is the haven of human rights where sword is
12:26 am
in control, and only the sword. in death, robin has gained new life, not as a man but as a myth. his followers look to his words and dreams to this day, and so duz the former president. >> i think basically we may have concluded the peace process with the palestinians. we started. we didn't finish. it remained open. >> reporter: as a soldier turned statesman, he believed the best way to get israel's future was to accept the palestinian state. he was murdered for his belief. >> you have to do things, and pay prizes. this is costly. the only thing is war cost more. >> reporter: for thousands of israelis, the anniversary of his death is a reminder of what it takes to make peace work.
12:27 am
>> his daughter says it's difficult to predict what it would be like if he lived because so much has changed in the middle east, especially over the last 20 years. as for how things are today, there's a relative quiet here, but we all know how fleeting that quiet can be with the tensions on the ground here. >> we can only speculate how different it may have been had he not been assassinateassassin. >> and routers quotes a presidential spokesman who says a russian made cargo plane has crashed in the capital, juba. the jokesman said the plane may have had about 20 passengers and crew on board. two survived but people on the ground may have been killed. we are working to get more information for you, and we will, of course, bring you any

the leaders of taiwan and china are scheduled to meet on saturday. reports say the leaders will discuss peace. in 1949, day jutaiwan split fro government in fact volkswagen share price is down. it comes after the zwregerman a toy maker admits that fuel consumption figures were set too low and certifying some models. reuters quotes a presidential spokesman who says a cargo plane has crashed in the capital of juba. the plane may have had about 20 passengers and crew on board. he says two survived but people on the ground may have been
12:33 am
killed. as investigators wrap up their field work at the crash site of metro jet 9268, the bodies of victims are returning home. at least victims at least a few victims have now been identified, according to the news agency, and the first victim has been released to a family. joining me to talk more about it is cnn safety analyst, david soucie. he's also a former faa safety inspector. thank you for being with us. the cause of this crash appears to be boiling down to either a catastrophic mechanical failure or a bomb. with all the details you have been able to put together so far, what's your sense now of what may have caused this russian plane to crash in the sinai? >> it's very difficult at this point to make the distinction between the two. even narrowing it to those two
12:34 am
is dangerous in an accident investigation. between the two, i'm leaning more toward the rupture of the fuselage than a bomb. simply because of the infrared flash, the way it came across and the point after flight it came across would indicate the aircraft came apart and slowed its movement. it slowed down and went forward. typically in a rupture, the accelerate might accelerate. there's still a lot to be looked at and determined, but that's the why i'm leaning at this point, but they're very close. >> and another piece of information that's coming out, the tail of the plane was found separated from the rest of the body of the plane. five kilometers away, in fact. the largest piece of debris to be found. what does that tell you? >> well, it must have been at a very high altitude when the tail came off which would be consistent from what we're
12:35 am
learning from flight radar and the flash point, when the flash occurred. that would make sense that the tail came off separately. another thing that supports the argument is the fact that there's no burn residue of course in the pictures. it doesn't appear to be what you'd see as burn residue on the tail. that means the tail may have come off before the explosion. that would be consistent into the rupture to cause the explosion. >> and the inspection on the ground is going to be wrapped up wednesday. are you surprised that they're finishing up is early, and i wanted to get your assessment of how the egyptians and russians have been running the investigation. >> well, i'm pretty pleased about the egyptians and russians and how they're working together. they have a good relationship, and the investigators seem to be working well together. i am a bit concerned that
12:36 am
they're out of there so quickly. there's a lot of clues and things small in nature that need to be looked at, but you have the pressure of the fact that this is not exactly a stable environment to be doing an investigation. normally you'd be able to have more time. but they're taking a lot of documentation and marking parts and getting things photographed. they'll probably do a digital investigation, they'll map it out in a digital model and try to recreate it that way. >> david soucie, we always appreciate your analysis on this. many thanks. >> thank you, rosemary. greece is beginning to send migrants to other european countries you should the eu's relocation plan. the prime minister was on hand as the first group boarded a plane from athens to luxembourg. >> translator: we also have a sense of responsibility. we know that we're responsible
12:37 am
for having a multiplying affecting movement involving more smiles and hopefully there has been an end to those loss of human lives in the gmc. >> under the plan, about 160,000 migrants will be sent to eu countries after they are proc s processed in italy and greece. they say more than 200,000 migrants arrived in greece last month alone. it is just before noon in yemen right now where residents are dealing with major flooding after a rare tropical cyclone hit on tuesday. the storm dumped at least a year's worth of rain in some areas. mud slides are a major concern in the country's dry, rugged terrain, video reportedly shows people trying to rescue some who are stuck in a car. cnn cannot independently confirm the authenticity of this video, but just looking there, unbelievable. and heavy fog is blanketing
12:38 am
parts of the united states and europe. our meteorologist joins us to talk about that. we talked last hour about how extensive this is. >> and if you're planning on traveling anywhere, you may want to check with your carrier to make sure you don't have delayed. even if the city you're departing from doesn't have fog, perhaps the city you're arriving in will have fog. let's take a look at the areas in which we will be dealing with some of that fog. this was actualy earlier on tuesday. the bright white that you can see is actually clouds, basically above rain showers and thunderstorms. the darker gray is the fog. this shows you how widespread of an event this was. as we transition into wednesday and even thursdays, we're dealing with heavy fog. cities like atlanta, memphis, st. louis, and chicago. then you'll notice the numbers change into thursday. again, still very low but now we're starting to add cities to the list, including
12:39 am
indianapolis, detroit, new york city, washington d.c. and it's not just in the united states. europe will also be dealing with the similar scenario. once again, there was tuesday. you can see the lighter white clouds dealing with the rain system but the darker grayish white is the fog. and, again, look at son-in-law of t -- some of the numbers wednesday into thursday. we've got tons of cities. br brussels and amsterdam, dealing with dense fog. as we mentioned, if you have travel plans, check with your carrier. into the united states, part of the reason they're getting the fog is the moisture coming up from the gulf and sticking around with the above normal temperatures because the ground is very moist from all the rain that they've seen. now, out on the west coast, it's much cooler than normal. some of these cities are seeing temperatures 10 degrees below normal including cities like lax and phoenix and salt lake city.
12:40 am
one perk has been the sierra nevada mountains. take a look at the seasons wel below normal for the snow pack that they've had. the hope is this year being an el niño year which typically means more snow pack, that those areas will be able to get pack to normal with the amounts of snowfalls, and also, good news for all the ski resorts out there as well. >> yes. we like to keep them happy. thank you so much. >> volcanic ash is grounding flights at bali's international airport, and two domestic airports until thursday. officials say tremors are being recorded continuously, and there's a good chance of more e russia russia -- eruptions. still to come, a five-year-old girl with an incurable disease makes a heart breaking decision about her own health care. we're back with that in just a
