9:00 pm
project. they are casting their ballot for president. as soon as that clock turns midnight, he'll drop his ballot. >> it is february 9 and i now declare the vote open, and happy 100th >> casts the first ballot. >> hold on. >> all right. >> you can see how quickly that goes up. >> the balloting box is closed. >> they are going to take the box and go count the votes. everything has been checked off. >> all those in favor, aye. >> opposed? >> unanimous. the polls are closed. >> so there you have it. the voting is completed other at dixville, notch. >> there you go, don.
9:01 pm
they have just closed the polls here. >> like 30 seconds to a minute. >> reporter: right. we're looking right now. just closed the polls, going back to count them. there's only nine votes, don, so can't take that long. certainly hope it won't take that long and on this white board behind me they will record the results. granted, this is very symbolic in many ways, part of the political lore that we have in the nights, dates back to 1906 when tom tillison's father started the tradition. do it not only in the primary but the general election. not only happening here but in two other towns, millsville as well as hart's location here in new hampshire. don, of course, the polls really open tomorrow morning in the more populace areas down in the south as we wait to see who will come out of new hampshire victorious on the republican side as well as the democratic side. so let's just wait a few moments and they will come back here,
9:02 pm
don. >> okay, mark, don't go anywhere. we'll continue on in here and add you to the conversation. i want to bring ryan and if you want to add something, feel free to jump in. they have had a pretty good results? >> since 1968, not necessarily predicted the republican -- who will win the republican primary in new hampshire but dixville notch who has predicted who the ultimate nominee is. >> right. >> not bad, since 1968. i think there was a tie in 1980 between reagan and bush and reagan went on to win the nomination, but it's more of a celebration of new hampshire and new hampshire being first in the nation and taking voting so serious. >> the democrats in 2008 was barack
9:03 pm
obama 7, john edwards 2 and bill richardson 1. >> not a hillary vote, interesting. she won new hampshire but obama won the nomination. >> if it was all like this we wouldn't have hanging chads, whatever. >> people got to decide. >> here we go, don. >> here we go. we'll see the results, don. let me step down here so we can get them for you. >> the results on the republican side, we have for donald j. trump two. for john r. kasich, we have three. >> three kasich. >> all right, and that was all the republican votes. >> on the democratic side, we have four votes cast for bernie sanders. >> four votes cast for bernie sanders and none for hillary. >> and none for hillary. >> okay, that's it.
9:04 pm
>> there you have it. >> let's take another look again. >> there you go, don, as you can see on the white board behind me only three candidates getting the votes, john kasich who came up here to dixville notch, who held a town meeting, about 60 people showed up from the surrounding communities gets three votes. we know he's been campaigning hard and a lot of talk over the weekend he's been surging throughout the state and we'll see where john kasich ends at the end of tomorrow night when we see all the votes across the state counted. now, interestingly enough, bernie sanders, when we were driving up here, we saw a lot of bernie sanders signs along the road, did not see any hillary clinton signs and, of course, she got no votes, don. back to you. >> mark preston, what do you make of this, ryan lizza, trump 2, kasich 3 and sanders 4 and hillary clinton zero. >> one thing kasich actually reached out and asked for the votes so that always helps and then, you know, sanders is -- he's from vermont, the media
9:05 pm
markets up there probably cover sanders as a senator so he's well known in northern new hampshire as he is in the rest of the side and not a surprise and the outsiders did well. four votes, 4-2 for the two outsiders versus three for kasich. >> if you look at this, some people would say how much stock should we be putting in this little town? >> very charming. >> charming tra dishes and, you know, they have a pretty good record but not that much stock. do you think that the clinton people are going oh, my gosh, we're in trouble? >> no, i don't think so. >> predicted the nominee a decent number of time on '68 on the republican side and you could flip a coin ten times and get heads but it doesn't mean a lot. more of a celebration of democracy in new hampshire. shows the people in new hampshire take this very seriously and put on an event like this. >> we should tell everyone the first votes are n.dixville notch and they are happening in several other times, marksville
9:06 pm
and hart's location as well. the bulk of the voting in the southern towns and cities start tomorrow. mark preston joins us now from dixville notch where the votes have been cast, trump 2, kasich 3 and sanders 4 and hillary clinton zero. mr. preston? >> reporter: what's interesting not only did john kasich come up here and hold a town meeting, he has been on the phone with the voters up here trying to get their support, and our own ashley keilo who is traveling with jeb bush reporting tonight that jesh bush during one of his rallies said he had been to every nook and cranny of the state except for dixville notch and made a few telephone calls and clearly that didn't work. a celebration of politics not only in new hampshire but quite frankly across the country. a page out of a norman rockwell book. it's amazing up here how engaged people are, what they know about policy and what they want to hear from the candidates, so, don, again, first votes cast
9:07 pm
here, two other towns as well. we'll have those results later, but really this is very interesting heading into tomorrow morning where i guess in just a few hours we are in the morning it's going to be an interesting race to the finish here in new hampshire. >> do the voters there talk, the nine people, do they talk to the media and usually tell you why they voted the way they did? >> they love talking to the media. there's no doubt about that. in fact, one gentleman who voted for john kasich told me, told me who he -- why he voted for kasich. he told meet story that he went up to john kasich and told the ohio governor. listen, i'm interested in you, but i think you need to attack hillary clinton and john kasich at the time said i'm not going to do that. it's into the my style, not what i'm going to do and the gentleman wrote him off at that time. however, the more and more he saw the infighting on the republican side and the attacks by trump on hillary clinton, he started to come over to the john kasich side. john kasich has been making a big deal about the kind of compassionate conservatism that
9:08 pm
he is delivering. in fact, during the debate on saturday night he talked about not leaving anybody behind but using smart conservative solutions so smart conservative solutions sounds a lot like the john mccain campaign when he ran back here in 2000 and 2008. john kasich seems to be running the same playbook. in fact, one of his top strategists was a former mccain strategist. don? >> mark preston, do the folks there in dixville notch and the other two towns, do they know that people are going -- ryan, i should shay, pardon me. do they know that people will be paying so much attention to them at 12:01 on, you know, primary morning? >> yeah. you can tell that they are pretty media savvy. they have turned this into a celebration of the town. >> they study the policy and the candidates. >> >> one of the things i love about covering iowa and new hampshire is something like this, right. these states, iowa and new hampshire, the voters really do take things seriously. had a voter on here tonight still struggling on whether to
9:09 pm
vote for sanders or hillary clinton. folks in dixville notch, they put on a whole show to celebrate democracy and this is sort of the epit myome of what people love about new hampshire that shows how seriously they take this. >> i found yore question fascinating. going ask you if you did. why aren't you decided by now? >> i know. >> so much information. people are knocking on your doors and bursting through your television and on the radio. >> maybe that makes it harder. >> because you're overwhelmed with the information. in later states you don't get in a privilege, right. when there are ten states voting you don't have the candidates meeting you one-on-one. the famous thing in new hampshire you ask a vote, you know, who are you going to vote for, well, i don't know, i've only met hillary twice and bernie three tiles. that doesn't happen later on. >> just tuning in, nine minutes ago the first votes were cast in the him ham primary up in a place called dixville notch and two other towns. live in dixville, notch. nine voters and we'll tell you the results. the results on the republican side.
9:10 pm
on the republican side donald trump two votes, first in the nation 2016, celebrating, going to cut into the cake in dixville notch. dwrump two votes on the republican side and john kasich three votes so john kasich is the winner there. >> big winner there. >> on the democratic side, the winner is bernie sanders. bernie sanders four votes and hillary clinton zero votes and they are celebrating up in dixville notch, first in the nation to vote in a primary for who is going to be president, you know, come november 2016. >> there's a little bit of a pr thing going on here, right? people are constantly saying why does new hampshire go first, and this state likes to promote these kinds of things to make people aware that they take this seriously and, that you know -- >> mark, do you have results from one of the other towns, what do you have? >> reporter: we do. don, we have results in from millsfield that's come in. ted cruz received 9 votes and donald trump 3 votes and a number of other republican
9:11 pm
candidates received 1 vote. on the democratic side hillary clinton seefeld 2 and bernie sanders received 1. in total 21 votes. don, if you can imagine this, talking about two locations where a total of 30 votes have been count, and to tell you here there must be 30 reporters in in room right now. vry small room, who are recording all of these results. >> more reporters than people, right? millsfield you said clinton got two votes and sanders 1 vote and cruz 9, trump 3, correct, mr. preston? snoop that is correct. >> that is correct. >> and so more -- >> all 21 votes. >> more reporters here than there are voters, that's for sure. >> they are very aware of what's happening at 12:01, you know, come primary day in those locations, and that's, you know, not entire reason, but part of the reason that they may be so engaged is because they note eyes of the country are on them.
9:12 pm
>> right. no doubt, listen, we just came out of iowa that's another state that's very civic-minded. a lot of criticism that iowa and new hampshire are two states that have been so inflinksal in the process, and they would like to break it up and would like to see some. bigger states such as california or florida or michigan have more of a role. this happens every four years where there seems to be a struggle and a fight over that, but what makes it really interesting in some ways essential for candidates for the summarily states is you can go into an iowa or new hampshire and you can campaign and you can meet voters one-on-one and quite frankly you can buy television ads in these states because they are not as expensive which allows the likes of rick santorum, if you remember, back in 2012 who won the iowa caucus. when you look at john kasich who doesn't have a whole lot of money. up against the trump machine and up against the tens of millions of dollars that jeb bush has but yet he seems to be doing pretty well. that's what makes the states really unique and these folks
9:13 pm
here, they know what they are talking about. they know policy and know their politics and quite frankly they want to know their candidates. they don't want to meet them once, don. want to meet them once, twice, four, five times when they make a decision. >> okay. i understand that john kasich is already tweeting about his victory in dixville, no. let's put it up on the screen and i'll give it to ryan and mark, whoever wants to respond to it. it says early momentum as john kasich wins gop vote in dixville notch. let's keep it going, new hampshire. what do you say and what do you make of that, ryan? >> his main strategist john weaver knows a thing or two about new hampshire. worked for john mccain and won new hampshire against george w. bush in 2000 hand know how to play the game and know how important dixville notch can be in terms of getting media attention and getting things rolling and, you know, this is a fun thing, right. this is not predictive. none. other candidates are lose sleep or aides saying oh, my gosh, we
9:14 pm
lost dixville notch. >> easy for you to say because you're not running. john kasich is this is like a harbinger, a prediction what have will happen tomorrow. thank you, ryan lizza and thanks, mark preston, up there in dixville notch where there's more media people than actual voters. great reporting. be safe and i'll see you back here in manchester soon. thaepgs that's it for all of us. cnn's coverage tons with asia sesay and john voss. good night. i take pictures of sunrises, but with my back pain i couldn't sleep and get up in time. then i found aleve pm.
9:15 pm

hello, great to have you with us. welcome to our viewers in the united states and all around the world. it be voting day in new hampshire. i'm john voss. >> sure is. and i'm asia sesay and you're watching "newsroom" live from los angeles. the race to the white house is well and truly under way. results coming in from the state of new hampshire. voters in had a little place called dixville notch and two other towns have cast their ballots in the country's first ever presidential primary. >> get ready. here come the results. the first have come in from dixville, notch has nine registered voters and here are
9:19 pm
the numbers. i know it's exciting. on the republican side. three votes for john kasich and two for donald trump. already complaining about that. four votes to democratic candidate bernie sanders, and then in the town of millsfield, 21 votes were cast and ted cruz led among the republicans with nine votes and hillary clinton beat sanders 2-1 and at least now we have something to talk about for the next 15 hours. >> well, the outcome in tuesday's primary will depend largely on the granite state's late-deciding voters. we're joined by republican strategist john thomas and democratic strategist dave jakeson, i like to call them our two wise men. great to have you with us tonight. results coming in. dixville notch, a win for john kasich, the only candidate that actually went to dixville notch. >> that will help. that will do it. >> still a squeaker. he went there and beat trump by
9:20 pm
one. >> got the three votes and claimed victory and what's it worth? >> far too early right now. >> no kidding. >> really? >> people pay me big dollars to tell them that but the truth is the the question we catch can trump be the comeback kid and can he win and win big in new hampshire and a four-way scrum between the top other tier candidates, bush, kasich, rubio hopefully coming back from a debate. that's what his team is hoping and christie, can he come back. that's what we'll watch. >> dave, your thoughts on the democratic side. sanders getting four and no votes for hillary clinton. >> that was in dixville. >> clearly it's anecdotal and somewhat symbolic, right? we're going to see a big victory tonight, most likely at least by bernie sanders. the question is he going to win by double digits, can clinton eat into his lead? largely will be an expectations game at this point. if he wins by double digits
9:21 pm
there will be an argument for him to go on and run a national campaign and the long drawn out battle that could go all the way out to california. if she's starting to get into his lead then it will raise questions about his viability. >> the clinton campaign's already starting to show signs of imploding though. today we saw clinton said if she doesn't show well here she will have major staff shake-ups. >> she didn't say that. >> that's a little disingenuous. >> you brought up donald trump, had a campaign rally a couple of hours ago. it was in manchester, and there was this exchange between donald trump and a supporter. we'll play you the highlights and cover your ears. >> you heart other night at the debate. they asked ted cruz serious question, well, what do you think of watering, is it okay, and honestly i thought he'd say absolutely and he would say, well, he was concerned with the answer because some people, she just said a terrible thing. you know what she said? shout it out because i don't want to.
9:22 pm
[ bleep ]. >> okay. >> you're not allowed to say, and i never expect to hear that from you again, she said i never expect to hear that from you again. she said he's a [ bleep ]. >> okay. so tomorrow donald trump will say he was just talking about baby cats, but is this the kind of -- the sort of thing that people want to see from a man who could be president? where's the line here. >> where's the decorum? >> you make a good point but bizarrely that's what the supporters love, the raw, unvarnished honesty. >> that's not honesty. that's not a case of honesty. >> calls it like he sees it. >> didn't he drop the f-bomb the other day. >> i mean, i hear people say that it's about his honesty, but that's just repeating the profane. that is -- >> it is vulgar but that's what his audience wants to hear and we're talking about him now. he's breaking through the news cycle in an important moment. >> i just think there were kids in that crowd.
9:23 pm
>> john, you make a good poinchlt the trouble donald trump has had. had this in iowa is ted cruz has mirrored donald trump on almost all of his positions so if he can draw a contrast and say, actually, you know what, i'm going to waterboard, you're going to carpet bomb and i'll one up you. >> where is it s this taking the political discourse in the united states, that's the big issue and i want to talk about the back and forth between donald trump and jeb bush today because that is noteworthy. has seemed a little bit like the cage match on the final day ahead of votes, jabs flying everywhere. donald trump and jeb bush, such insults. i want to play a little bit of the back and forth for our viewers and get you to respond. >> it's like a child. like a spoiled child. he spent $110 million on a campaign, and he's nowhere. >> okay. so, yeah, a lot of smack talking but trump who was responding from trump.
9:24 pm
tweeted this out. you aren't just a liars. you're a liar and whiner and said john mccain is a war hero over and out. >> the why is trump going after jeb bush? he's at 7%. isn't he punching down at this point? >> donald trump can't resist but attacking his attackers and jeb bush put out the bait and if you're jeb bush you're loving this in this moment. >> second place, third place is sort of up for grabs right now in new hampshire and if jeb bush is able to consolidate some of that establishment support and have a strong performance and pull off the marco rubio, what he did in iowa will w lower expectations, it could propel him to south carolina with momentum and there are talks he'll have his brother president george bush campaign there for him and that could campaign. >> and we saw a poll as recent as yesterday, over 40% of the republican electorate in new hampshire say they are undecided. >> a lot of people to fight for. >> on to hillary clinton now. you brought this up and said she's going to fight for him which is not true. >> this is what she said.
9:25 pm
let's listen to the actual statement from secretary clinton. >> we're going to take stock, but it's going to be the campaign that i've got. i'm very confident in the people that i have. i'm very committed to them. they are committed to doing the best we can. we'll take stock, what works what, doesn't work. we're moving into a different phase of the campaign. we're moving into a more diverse electoral and moving into different geographic areas. >> okay. she's going to take stock but clearly you don't take stock when you're winning and things are not happy in hillary land. >> she's moving into a different phase called panic phase. >> that's what she's moving in. >> we're seeing national polls where she's only up by two points so it's clearly a big point for her. >> we heard this talk eight years ago right before new hampshire when everyone thought she would lose. barack obama was leading by double digits in new hampshire and she obviously prevails and pivoted away from the narrative. >> is it about the campaign or was it about her? essentially what's the problem here? >> david axelrod, former adviser summed it up perfectly where it says sometimes it's not the
9:26 pm
staff, it's the candidate and that's the problem she may have. >> got to ask the question, if she doesn't do well in this vote in a many ham, if the margin of defeat is as great as some fear, do we think this will be the moment for michael bloomberg to tip his hat in because we know he's already said he's looking at this race. what are your expectations? >> and the expectation of joe biden or al gore or elizabeth warren. >> if show can't beat the democrat socialist in the early states the democrats will look around for someone else. >> do you think there's a lane for michael bloom sfwherg can he run an there a lane for the anti-gun, anti-bill gulp, anti-styrofoam candidate in the this race? >> america is becoming more and more polarized. democratic socialists with bernie sanders on the left and the ted cruzzes and donald trumps and insurgent outsiders on the right. there's an argument to be made that someone could sort of come up the middle and appeal to those ohio, florida florida,
9:27 pm
pennsylvania moderate voters looking for someone to get stuff done. >> if bloomberg runs, everybody can assure the presidency will go to the republican nominee. >> he takes from hillary clinton or bernie sanders. >> guys, good to see you both. >> thanks for having us. >> thank you. >> we'll continue with our coverage of all the primary results coming out of new hampshire because still yet to hear from one of the tiny towns, like they matter. >> they matter, they matter. >> the midnight vote in dixville notch. >> hand how some of the biggest jam bands and celebrities are feeling the bern. >> and i'll be your friend. ♪ i'll help you carry on it . and the best place to find the job that's right for you ♪ is on the world's number-one job site. indeed. how the world works. thanks. ♪ [ male announcer ] fedex® has solutions to enable global commerce that can help your company grow steadily and quickly.

welcome back, everyone. the first primary votes of the 2016 u.s. presidential race are in. the small township of dixville notch, new hampshire cast their votes just after midnight local time. >> okay. here we are. nij registered voters. three went for republican john kasich and two for donald trump. on the democratic side four voted democrat, bernie sanders. no votes for hillary clinton. >> well, the sanders campaign isn't just attracting younger voters, attracting the bands they listen to. the campaign holt offed a commit to vote concert in new hampshire monday featuring jam band rockers like john fisherman of the band phish and they featured a special "feel the bern" spern ♪ feel the bern and feel the heat ♪
9:32 pm
♪ the bern >> senator sanders has the support of the red hot chili peppers who hosted a fund-raiser for him on friday and model and actress who rose to prominence after featuring in the "blurred lines" video and explained to brianna keilar why she's not supporting hillary clinton. >> i understand the urge to want to support a female democratic candidate who has completely earned her stripes. my initial response to hillary was a composetive one but depending on your politics if you don't agree with some of the things that i think are very extreme and very to the right of where i would like to see the party headed it's really that simple to me. >> it really is quite remarkable the coalition that bernd has been able to build. sanders has rocked up a long list of hollywood supporters including actress susan sarandon, sarah silverman and
9:33 pm
seth macfarlane. >> the latest numbers, wmur poll shows amongst the democrats in new hampshire, bernie sanders hold is big and emphasis on a big lead, 26 points ahead of hillary clinton. >> donald trump leading had the republicans with 31%, 14% ahead of marco rubio in second place and ted cruz, remember him, won iowa. he is coming in at third at 14%. we were hoping to speak to -- tom tullieson in new hampshire and we can't get ahold of him. there's something going on. one thing -- let's just talk about bernie sanders and the music tends to reflect the support, doesn't it, in many ways when you compare hillary clinton to bernie sanders and look at the numbers that came out of iowa. younger voters went to bernie sanders 80% to what was hillary clinton he's 15% or something. why is he doing so well? because young people can't get on to that message of steady as she goes. >> i think part of it is the
9:34 pm
democratic party is having an identity crisis. we're seeing it on the democratic side and on the republican side as well. it's the establishment versus the insurgent outsider's anti-establishment, anything but washington candidates, and that's appealing to young people. people who have just watched sort of washington and all its dysfunction and gridlock and nothing getting done, these are people who want to be inspired and be optimistic and look to the future. bernie sanders sort of embodies that narrative. >> and what about the appeal he has to creatives, to the hollywood types, the traditional bastion of the clintons. >> well, he's running as a non-establishment canned day. you know, he's running for the apple phone generation. he's done a good job harnessing the power of "saturday night live" with his twin larry david. outplayed clinton on every hand. >> must be really difficult for the clinton campaign to swallow because you know what, hollywood, that was their crowd. >> that was their crowd. >> he's really cut their grass
9:35 pm
here. that's got to hurt, right? >> this is her nightmare scenarios right. like this is the base of the clintons. like they got hollywood to cash the big checks. >> yes. >> they come out here to california, the atm for presidential campaigns, particularly among democrats, right, and now you're seeing this slippery slope with more hollywood heavyweights going towards bernie sanders. >> i think the entire election has been angry. the clintons are angry because even if hillary does prevail in the nomination she thought this should be a coronation, not an election. >> you're saying she thought it. she always said and has always balked at this notion she would be inevitable. >> show she said. >> i think what she said publicly and what her team believes. >> let's hold you to the line, at least what she has said, put that out there. >> okay. >> wisemen. >> okay. one thing which we've noticed about the campaign trail as the stakes get higher there's an uptick in what we call verbal fisticuffs. >> is that what we call them?
9:36 pm
>> we do now. >> for the first time in the democratic race former president clinton went after bernie sanders attacking him on his health care plan and accusing bernie sanders of sexist. >> people who have gone on the front line to explain why they have supported her have been subject to be vicious trolling and attacks that are literally too profane often, not to mention sexist to repeat. >> who hasn't been trolled on the internet? >> okay. spokesman for the sanders campaign called bill clinton's comments disappointing and the candidate will continue to focus object message. >> on the gop said donald trump is continuing to rip opponent jeb bush at a campaign event in salem, new hampshire. >> it's like a child. he's like a spoiled child. he spent $110 million on a campaign, and he's nowhere.
9:37 pm
>> well, jeb bush is taking his own shots at trump calling him and his comments desperate, sad, pathetic. bush tweeted you aren't just a liars. you're a liar and a whiner. >> now be sure to tune in for our continuing coverage of new hampshire's primaries all day or night. it never ends right here hon cnn. >> this is the only place to be so do stay with us. now u.s. president obama will request $1.8 billion from congress to combat the zika virus linked to potentially deadly birth defects and it's been rapidly spreading through south america. mr. obama's request will include $200 million dedicated to finding a vaccine. >> now brazil is ground zero for the zika virus but concerns about the spread of the virus aren't slowing down the celebrations for carnival. more now from the middle of all that have in rio. >> reporter: john, as you can see here, all the warnings,
9:38 pm
people wearing long sleeves, wear repellant aren't really being listened to, and this is just the beginning really. tomorrow, mardi gras in the united states and 48 hours or so more left of this festive atmosphere, a time when many people in brazil trying to forget the economic hardships of the past few months and perhaps the health emergency that's been in their midst in the past few weeks but this is a key time for the spread of zika. however, in congress it sounds time to talk about this virus with the madness going on around me. the question question is do people who come to the carnival, do they go back to their home countries and further spread anything they may have picked up here, or is it a time where some and more people catch it and more people become immune and it spreads ever more slowly and everyone's eyes in the festival in the months ahead are on the olympics. that's what's so key.

welcome back, everybody. hits look at the stock markets right now and in japan and australia the markets are down sharply. this is extending a global selloff. in tokyo the stocks pledged more than 5% this afternoon trade and as we go to australia the asx 200 down 3% as well. in japan, long-term bonds fell below zero for the first time ever. that is a significant event and we should also note that many asian markets remain closed for the lunar new year holiday. >> there's a new twist involving the satellite that nk launched into space just this weekend. the u.s. senior defense official tells cnn the satellite is tumbling in orbit. that means it's incanable of functioning in any useful way. >> but another official has told cnn the fact north korea advanced its missile program enough to simply get this satellite into orbit is more of a concern than how it's functioning right now. >> well, international community is considering stiffer sanctions against nk in response to that rocket launch. let's bring in cnn's paula

hancock who is in seoul, south korea. what are south korean officials saying now about the current status of the satellite. >> reporter: well, asi isha, no sure if it's functioning at this point. believed it's still in orbit. president park guen-hye has spoken to the u.s. president obama this morning just a few hours ago and both agreed there had to be strong sanctions and also agreed there had to be bilateral and multi-lateral movements, not necessarily just those within the united nations and also spoke to japan's prime minister. they agreed the same thing. the fact is kim jong-un has been fairly transparent in what he's done. said he wanted to launch the satellites and said he wants a dual track approach of a very strong nuclear program and also a strong economy. we know he's progressing with a nuclear and what about the economy. it's called the pride of
9:45 pm
pyongyang, a pier with a soft, smooth and fragrant taste. propaganda from north korea is nothing new. commercially motivated adverts are. >> what we're seeing by north korea marketing is innovative branding and marketing of their products which is generally targeting chinese consumers to see if they can get into the chinese market. >> reporter: china is one of the few markets in the world where the heavily sanctioned north korea can access its portal to the rest of the world. visiting a cosmetics factory last year, north korean leader kim jong-un called for the domestic brand to become internationally recognized. reliable data from north korea doesn't exist, but south korea says last year trade between the two was at a record high, at $2.7 billion, despite high tensions over the summer. trade with china in 2014 was $7.6 billion, representing 90%
9:46 pm
of all north korean trade. kim jong-un has made the economy part of successive new year's speeches this year calling for all efforts to be made to build, quote, an economic giant. >> after the inauguration. kim jong-un regimen we have been witnessing many changes, including new restaurants and western style and cafe and on the street. >> reporter: not in mention a new ski resort and amusement park all developments for the elite and those living in pyongyang but in rural areas that there reports of malnutrition, a two-gap economy. farmers working with schemes allowing them to keep more if they grow more and the days of the late kim jong-il's disastrous economic decisions are gone. >> they cannot go back. they have lost the mechanisms of
9:47 pm
a command economy, of a soviet-style economy, and what's really remarkable about kim jong-un you can see he's not trying to go back. >> reporter: so the north koreans call this policy the dual track aproenching the strong nuclear program and strong economy and when you're pumping billions of dollars into the former, it's very difficult to see how can you improve the latter. >> interesting indeed. we shall fall it very closely. paula hancox joining us from seoul, south korea. always appreciate it. thank you. well, we'll take a short break. when we come back unlimited car rentals, delux skin dreams and a $50,000 trip to r.we'll check out what hollywood's elite will be taking home in their oscar swag bag. want to get their hands on. if they could ever catch you.

millsville, ted cruz led republicans with 9 of the 21 votes cast there and hillary clinton beat sand 2-1 on the democratic side. ted cruz obviously doing well there because it's close to canada. republican race, looks like new hampshire is donald trump's to lose. the latest cnn/wmur poll has him holding a third of republicans in a field of eight canned sglats but about 30% of republican voters a very large number, 30%, still undecided there in new hampshire, and as jim acosta reports the race for second place there is still very much up in the air. >> reporter: >> we have to get rid of the busheses of the world. >> reporter: one day before the new hampshire primary the battle for the republican nomination has descended into name-calling and taunts between donald trump and his favorite target jeb bush. >> then he said, see, i'm the only one taking on donald trump. i'm not afraid of donald trump. i'm -- he's like a child. he's like a spoiled child. >> reporter: but the former
10:02 pm
florida governor is no longer ignoring the attacks. >> donald trump, you're the loser. >> reporter: bush is throwing counterpunches in what may be a last-ditch effort to slam the brakes on trump's fast-moving campaign and save his own. >> a long list of things that donald trump says that disparages people. i find it remarkable that as a candidate for president he would think that that's evidence that he's a strong person. he's not. >> reporter: the two men are at war on twitter. trump tweeting everyone is laughing at jeb bush. spent $100 million and is at bottom of pack. a pathetic figure and bush swinging back reminding voters of trump's attacks on john mccain, a recall toer new hampshire winner. bush tweeted you aren't just a loser, you're a liar and a whiner. trump told wolf blitzer bush is losing his nerve. >> he's a sad person who has gone absolutely crazy. i mean this guy is a nervous wreck. i've never seen anything like it >> reporter: brawl comes as a new cnn/wmur poll shows trump
10:03 pm
still way out in front. one key question heading into the primary is how much damage was done to marco rubio after his shaking debate performance over the weekend. >> there's the bottom line. the notion that barack obama doesn't know what he's doing. >> there it is, there it is, the memory 25-second speech. >> that's -- that's the reason why this campaign -- >> chris christie says it's proof rubio is not ready for primetime. >> when the lights get that bright you either shine or you melt. we cannot afford to have a president who melts. >> reporter: rubio had no regrets. >> people keep, you know, the press anyway, why do you keep saying the same thing about obama trying to change america? i'm going to keep saying that a million times because i believe it's true. >> reporter: also unclear is how well john kasich and ted cruz will do. they are also fighting for second place, and cruz appears to be downplaying expectations. >> we never viewed any of these states as a must-win. we are here in new hampshire competing for the votes, and at this point it's a turnout game. >> reporter: the trump campaign is sounding much more confident
10:04 pm
about new hampshire than iowa. campaign manager corey lewandowski says iowa was informing voters about the caucus process and new hampshire is getting people to the polls. you're not hearing ted cruz boast about his ground game in new hampshire anymore. jim acosta, cnn, manchester, new hampshire. >> so much to discuss. more hon what can happen to the republican field. joined by republican consultant john thomas, one. wisemen without his partner and marie morel. welcome, ann marie. we need another woman at the table. you'll be okay. you know, got to put to you what happened earlier on in the evening at a donald trump rally where some offensive language was used to describe trumptz i want to listen to the moment. let's play it for our viewers and anne marie, i would like for you to weigh in. >> you heard the other night at the debate.
10:05 pm
they asked ted cruz serious question, well, what do you think of waterboarding and is it okay and honest life i thought he'd say absolutely. he was concerned about the answer because some people -- she just said a terrible thing. you know what she said? shout it out because i don't want to -- [ bleep ]. >> okay. you're not allowed to say, and i never expect to hear that from you again. she said i never expect to hear that from you again. she said he's a [ bleep ]. that's terrible, terrible. >> it's hard to fat yom that this is a race for the white house and anne marie is a ted cruz supporter and when you hear him talking about your guy like that what's the reaxes especially among ted cruz supporters? >> as a ted cruz protests, as a woman, as a person, a hour, i wouldn't want my candidate ever, ever to talk like that, and -- and it's funny. you were talking about one of
10:06 pm
your family members that might lean towards trump. not going to out anybody here, but just because you say what's on your mind doesn't mean you necessarily need to say everything that's on your mind, and he blamed it on the woman in the audience so he didn't have to take responsibility for that necessarily. >> but he does. >> yes. >> of course he does. >> this is his schtick. >> i think this really reinforces that trump supporters like that he says what he thinks, and they are angry, and i think donald trump also is frustrating that ted cruz has mirrored all of his positions to date, you know, and whatever donald trump says, if i'm going to build a wall, ted cruz says i'm going to build a bigger wall. >> he says that in 2012 before donald trump was ever in the political realm at all, so to be fair he's been -- he's been pushing for immigration and
10:07 pm
reform for -- >> but he doesn't lead off with his campaign. >> and put if on the map much more than ted cruz did because ted cruz has been running away from the issue of immigration because it's a difficult one. >> and the candidates are looking to draw contrast and in the debate ted cruz showed a measured approach well, perhaps i'd consider waterboarding, not really sure and donald trump said you better believe i'll waterboard. >> you're absolutely right. >> measured responses are not popular, nuance is not popular. >> nobody wants that less. >> especially on the republican side and also the democrat side. you mentioned the debate, the rubio moment in the debate where he repeated himself and wouldn't get off his talking points. in the past couple of hours another guess i verbal verbal malfunction from marco rubio. let's listen to this. >> we are taking our message to families that are struggling to raise their children in the 21st century because as you saw we're raising our four children in the 21st century and we know how
10:08 pm
hard it's is to instill our values in our kids instead of the values they ram down our threats. it's harder to instill in children the values they teach in our homes and in our church instead of the values they try to ram down our throats in movies and music and popular culture. >> can you pick up what was going on there? >> yes, did i. >> message blip. >> this is a problem for marco rubio is he's reinforcing a narrative. >> sure. >> and the problem he has right now is this undermines his authenticity and the fact is he's very authentic candidate, but one of his greatest assets that he's disciplined and on message and the candidates are turning around on him. chris christie who lob that had grenade right at marco's face is also -- he's the governor and the former u.s. attorney, one-note johnny so it's kind of hypocritical >> what do you make of it? >> i've got a lot of sympathy. i'm tired right now. i get tired just getting tired
10:09 pm
and putting makeup on these days. these guys are on the campaign trail and giving their message over and over, pouring out their heart and life's blood and putting their families through this. they are tired. >> stop being so nice. >> it's hard to be perfect. >> i think ann-marie is right. >> we live in a sound bite world with 15-second clips and these candidates understand they don't get a long dialogue with the voter so they better repeat the same message so it breaks through. >> and no one is better than donald trump about that. >> what are the expectation for your candidate because real el nobody is talking about him, everybody is talking about rubio and trump. >> right now rubio and cruz are kind of neck and neck. everybody thought donald trump was going to win in iowa, too, and the one thing we don't know about this entire primary is we don't know anything about this primary. donald trump did -- he lobbed a grenade into the middle of politics and anything can happen. >> i'm just wondering since iowa
10:10 pm
ted cruz has been dogged by allegations of dirty tricks and winning the caucus. whether you agree with it or not, has that hurt him more than helped him? obviously the win in iowa has nod help him as much and have the allegations of dirty tricks sort of any gated any momentum he got from iowa? >> i don't think so at all because anyone who actually looked into all of the allegations and everything that happened, i was watching live when it was happening on cnn when they were talking, when they broke the story that dr. ben carson was allegedly going to take time off. they were talking about it like it was a breaking news story and everyone started live tweeting it right after. >> i think ann-marie is right. didn't really affect the outcome of what happened in iowa. ted, unfairly, hasn't received the bounce someone should out of iowa so ted has been very smart. he's managed expectations going in new hampshire the interesting thing is in iowa the evangelical vote is two-thirds self-identified evangelical n.new hampshire that's less than
10:11 pm
one-fifth so this isn't ted cruz state so if he does well tomorrow which he may it's a big boost. >> the how well does he have to do? >> if he comes in top four it's a really good night. south carolina he should have a great night because of the evangelical base. >> thank you. >> always a pleasure. >> ann-marie, great to have you here. >> good to be here. >> john thomas, we'll reunite you with your other half. >> donald trump's campaign has not tried to build a so-called ground game in new hampshire. >> his army of volunteers is small compared to other reporters and what trump supporters lack in numbers they sure do make up for in enthusiasm. >> reporter: if donald trump lands his first victory of 2016 in new hampshire tuesday, even he says it won't be because of his ground game. >> personally i think the debate tonight is more important than the ground game because in new hampshire people, they like you and they are going to go out and they are going to go vote and go back. not so much of a ground game. >> reporter: that's not stopping trump's team from putting it on
10:12 pm
display. >> you mind if we ask if you're a supporter of mr. trump. >> reporter: after barring reporters from campaign offices in iowa. >> i've been told to turn all media away. >> okay. >> we have no comment on any matter. >> reporter: trump shifted stances in the wake of his second place finish, allowing reporters to tag along with volunteers. >> last one on the street. >> by far we have the most organized, the most passionate team. we're just -- the fire is lit in our bellies, and we're going for it every day >> reporter: team is led by campaign manager and longtime new hampshire operative corey lewandowski. he has experience in the nitty-gritty of voter registration, but his efforts to ramp up trump's ground game appear to rest on a flimsy foundation. >> we're donald trump volumers to and we're going -- >> reporter: according to campaign finance reports, trump has spent little on data or voter targeting, a cornerstone of rival campaigns. >> hey, good -- >> two of them at once. >> reporter: for eight months marco rubio's camp has been
10:13 pm
knocking on doors and making phone calls laying the groundwork for late-breaking voters. >> new hampshire listens hand they wait and wait to make up their mind. >> reporter: is it driving you crazy the number of people still undecideded? >> yeah, not real because i'm used to it. >> reporter: days before the primary trump was still soliciting volunteers. meanwhile john kasich's campaign brought in several hundred out-of-state helpers, putting them up in farmhouses and supporters' living rooms and dispatching them daily. >> by the end of the day i was really tired. >> reporter: all to persuade new hampshi hampshire's coveted independents to join for kasich as other camps put their efforts in turnout efforts trump is betting on celebrity adding the kind of retail stops he regularly skipped in iowa. >> how are you. >> reporter: and pressing voters to show up for him or not at all. >> a lot of politicians say it's not important who you vote for, but you have to go through the process. i feel differently. if you're not going to vote for me, do not vote!
10:14 pm
>> reporter: in spite of donald trump's ground game, the new hampshire primary pros etz as well as a large number of independent vote corsi work to his advantage on tuesday night and a number of rifle campaigns tell me even if trump is struggling on the ground, they still expect him to win in the granite state. sara murray, cnn, manchester, new hampshire. >> much more politics ahead here on "newsroom l.a." including former u.s. president bill clinton slamming some bernie sanders' supporters for online attacks against his wife. >> she and other people who have gone online to defend hillary and explain, just explain why they supported her, have been subject to vicious trolling and attraction that are literally too profane often not to mention sexist to repeat. in new york state, we believe tomorrow starts today.

young malep sanders supporters, so-called bernie bros for online attacks against his wife. >> show and other people who have gone online to explain why they supported hillary have been subject to vicious trolling and attacks that are literally too profane often, not to mention sexist to repeat. >> reporter: sanders has rejected that tactic. >> anybody who is supporting me is doing sexist things is -- we don't want them. i don't want them. that is not what this campaign is about. >> reporter: but in a state she won in 2008 clinton has acknowledged this time around a comeback in new hampshire may not be in the cards. >> i know i've got an uphill climb. >> reporter: this debate on display at sanders' last campaign event one of his surrogates model and actress emily radikowski saying why am i here? not here for the boys.
10:22 pm
brianna keilar, cnn, durham, new hampshire. >> democratic battle in new hampshire we're joined by democratic strategist dave jacobson and the lead organizer for democrats for bernie sanders. welcome. >> welcome. >> hearing some pretty vicious attacks coming from former president bill clinton. clearly this is coordinated. the clintons don't say anything off the cuff and this could be read and just another indication of how worried the clinton campaign is when it comes to bernie sanders and his lead over hillary clinton, especially when it comes to women. >> right. look, i mean, bill clinton is next to barack obama the most popular democrat in the country, so might as well capitalize on that key endorsement, and clearly, you know, they are tanking a little bit in new hampshire so might as well bring out the attack dog and pivot a little bit and start to hold bernie sanders accountable for some of the attacks made against hillary clinton. >> lauren, how do you feel about the shifting tone in this campaign? >> i do think they are getting
10:23 pm
desperate, that they would ease into this, and this it would be a coronation and had no idea about bernie's political revolution, you know. the media wasn't covering him. he got all of ten minutes on the nightly network news in all of 2015. the dnc restricted the debates to six on saturdays opposite football games, didn't want him to get exposure and he was going across the country and getting tens of thousands of people for his rallies. his people are out there, our people are out there doing grass roots events for them. hundreds every day all across the country and his message really resonates. >> and resonating with women a great deal and in light of that when you look at how he's trouncing hillary clinton when it comes to young women, hands from the likes of gloria steiniam and madeleine albright in recent hours, madeleine albright famously playing on her line about a special place in
10:24 pm
hell for women who don't help other women and used it in relation with women not standing by hillary. how did you steve those comments? >> oh, my god. when i heard gloria steiniam comment, i didn't watch bill marr and read about it instantly and post it had on facebook on a couple of large video groups and have you no idea the kinds of comments that came forth from women from college age all the way up to senior citizens. everybody was condemning those remarks. people were calling her irrelevant, people were calling her seni le and sexist. i don't want to say those things because i read "ms." magazine through high school. gloria steiniam and other second wave fem fists is what made me a feminist so i don't want to say anything about her but i do feel her remarks were very misguided and insulting to women not no mention sexist saying that's the only reason they are voting for
10:25 pm
bernie is that's where the boys are >> you mentioned bernie sanders and his political ref lose and president clinton had something to say about that on the campaign trail. >> when you're making a revolution you can't be too careful about the facts. you're either for me or against me. >> he went on essentially to make the argument, you know, if you're not ideologically pure to bernie sanders then essentially you must be on take. is this a good argument for bill clinton to be making here? is he the right person to be making this argument? >> i think that's a good general election argument for him to be making, right. he's trying to paint hillary clinton as the pragmatist, the effective person who can govern the country. that's a great argument in a general election when you're trying to appeal to the moderates, independent voters who ultimately decide who wins the november election but right now you're trying to sell hillary clinton to liberal democratic voters. got to sell to their hearts and to their souls, and the problem is that's not something that's breaking through, right? you've got to excite them and
10:26 pm
energize them. got to inspire them. got to talk about the future and optimism, and that is not the message that we're getting from the clinton campaign right now. >> lauren is, bernie sanders being a bit fast and loose with the truth when he's coming out with many so of the statements? >> what statements. >> political revolution and people being on the take, a nudge and a wink about who is taking money from the financial regulations and from wall street, nudge, nudge, wink, wink. >> the fact of the matter is she has taken a lot of money, $675,000 from goldman sachs for three speeches and when asked, you know, why did she take that money, she said well that's what they wanted to pay. >> the implication being that she was bought. >> well, i think -- you can't go and spend, you know, or make $139 million as the two of them have from every sort of industry hand not expect to have some favors. >> i think the problem also with this new transcript issue it's sort of becoming like an iv drip, drip, drip, drim, like the e-mail scandal. would i recommend she turn it
10:27 pm
over and pivot away from the issue immediately. >> reporter: lauren, your expectations for your candidate out of ham snam what are you expecting in terms of the scale of the win given the way it stands right now in the polls? >> let's put it this way. i think his win is going to be huge. >> don't even have to follow up that one. >> we shall see in just a few hours from now. >> thank you both for coming in. >> thank you sfloech. >> and we'll take a short break. when we come back on cnn, protesters and police clash in hong kong, all of this happening during the celebration for the lunar new year. plus, super bowl politics, why some folks are criticizing beyonce's halftime performance. i think it landed last tuesday. one second it's there. then, woosh, it's gone. i swear i saw it swallow seven people. seven. i just wish one of those people could have been mrs. johnson.

welcome back, everybody. usual watching "cnn newsroom live" from los angeles. just gone 10:30 on a monday night. i'm john jauss. >> and i'm isha sesay. the first primary voests 2016 presidential race are in with just nine votes to count in the small town of dixville notch, new hampshire. john kasich beat donald trump 3-2 on the republican side. democrat bernie sanders shut out hillary clinton with all four votes. polls will hope in the rest of the state in the coming hours. >> in the democratic race hillary clinton made her last appeal to voters before the primary at a real. she was joined by her daughter chelsea and husband former president bill clinton. members of the band phish and others performed at a rally for fellow contender bernie sanders. >> things, well, got a little colorful for a rally in
10:32 pm
manchester, new hampshire. he was was talking about ted cruz when a supporter shouted out a vulgar term. >> you're not allowed to say and i'm not expected to hear that from you again. i never expected to hear that from you again. she said [ bleep ]. terrible, terrible. >> ted cruz has mott commented. cruz is polling third in new hampshire despite winning the iowa caucuses. >> the cnn/wmur numbers show trump leading the field, marco rubio coming in second and ted cruz with 14%. among the democrats in new hampshire bernie sanders holds a big lead, 26 points ahead of hillary clinton. >> all right. we'll, of course, continue to bring you the very latest from the race in new hampshire, but let's turn to some other news now. we've learned western security agencies had hints of an isis plot before the november terror attacks in paris.
10:33 pm
a european counterterrorism source showed intelligence showed as many as 60 isis fighters were already on european soil planning to attack five cities. >> but intel was fragmented, difficult to verify and too vague to act on also the intelligence showed mohammed adnani was at the center of the planning of the attacks. >> and in aleppo there's part of a shift of the country in the civil war. >> this conflict could be nearing an end according to some government officials. fred pleitgen spoke to officials. >> reporter: assad regime's position has been bolstered and had more traffic and people out on the streets and more optimist among regime supporters.
10:34 pm
things are getting bet abouter thanks to the leadership of president assad, this man says and thanks to the syrian army and the paramilitary forces. and this man adds our army is winning. it's a strong army and it's protected by god. but for much of last year the syrian government was losing ground. various rebel factions closed in on government strongholds in the north and the south of the country. but russian air power and help from pro-iranian militias appear to be turning the tide in this five-year conflict leaving some to question the point of diplomacy. while the u.n. and united states continue to say only diplomacy can solve the syrian crisis, an increasing number of people here in government-controlled territories seem to believe that thereby a military solution to the conflict, that is, if bashar al assad's army can build on the gains it's made in recent weeks.
10:35 pm
burr the government's offensive comes at a high price. tens of thousands plea bargain towards the turkish border looking to escape the onslaught. meanwhile speculation that assad's main adversaries turkey and saudi arabia might be planning encursings into northern syria leading to this warning from the foreign minister. any troops that invade our territory will go home in wooden coffins he said and on streets of damascus not everyone is sure the government's momentum will carry on. >> i don't think it's going to end any soon and i don't think anyone is winning. i it's it's a no-woman. my personal opinion. >> reporter: even with the optimism brought on by the recent gains, one thing remains the same for syrians, the uncertainty of what the future will bring. fred pligten, cnn, damascus. protests turned violent in
10:36 pm
hong kong monday night in the lunar new year. as expected you can see demonstrators attacking police with all kinds of household objects hitting officers were brooms and throwing bottles. >> reporter: police say 48 of their officers were injured and 24 people were arrested. the clashes began when police tried to remove some food vendors from a busy street. there's no apparent connection to the umbrella revolution which spread in 2014 and disrupted the same area to date. turning now to north korea and the country is giving itself a big pat upon the back for a launch of a satellite into space. >> fireworks lit up the night sky in pyongyang in celebration but the satellite apparently is not working. >> a u.n. senior intelligence official celts intelligence the satellite is tumbling in orbit and is incapable of any
10:37 pm
functioning way and the fact that he were able to launch the satellite into orbit is much more worrying than how it's functioning right now. the u.n. security council is vowing to take strong action in response to that rocket launch, and this could include stronger sanctions against the north. let's bring in cnn's paula hancox in seoul, south korea, what are we hearing when it comes to leveling more sanctions against north korea for their recent actions? >> reporter: well, isha, we've heard from the blue house here, the presidential office, that president park guen-hye spoke to the u.s. president barack obama several hours oak and paul agreed strong sanctions were needed against north korea and also both agreed that there could be bilateral and multi-lateral sanctions and measured outside of the united nations and not just relying on those u.n. sanctions, similar phone call between park and shinzoa the japanese prime minister. from king jong-un's point of
10:38 pm
view it is a success as far as he is concerned. he has said he wants to follow a duel track policy afro bust nuclear program and strong economy. we know he's progressing with the first, not necessarily with the second. it's called the pride of pyongyang, a beer with a soft, smooth and fragrant taste. propaganda from north korea is nothing new. commercially motivated adverts are. >> i think some of what we're seeing in terms of by north korean stand guards are innovative branding and marketing of their products is genuinely targeting chinese consumers to see if they can get into the chinese market. >> reporter: china is one. few markets in the world that the heavily sanctioned north korea can access its portal to the rest world. visiting a cosmetics factory last year north korean leader kim jong-un called on the domestic brand to become internationally recognized.
10:39 pm
reliable data from north korea doesn't exist, but south korea says last year trade between the two was at a record high, at $2.7 billion. despite high tensions over the summer. trade with china in 2014 was $7.6 billion, representing 90% of all north korean trade. kim jong-un has made the economy part of successive new year's speeches this year calling for all efforts to be made to build, quote, an economic giant. >> after the inauguration. kim jong-un regime we've been witnessing many changes including new restaurants and western style and cafe and taxi running on the street. >> reporter: not to mention a new ski resort and an amusement park, all couple developments for the elite and those living in pyongyang but in the rural areas there are still reports of food and security and malnutrition, a two-track
10:40 pm
economy with the gap in between continuing to rise. farmers now work with incentive-led schemes, however, allowing them to keep more if they grow more, and the days of the late kim jong-il's disastrous economic decisions are gone. >> they cannot go back. they have lost the mechanisms of a command economy, of a soviet-style economy, and what's really remarkable about kim jong-un is you can see he's not trying to go back. >> bear in mind kim jong-un is pumping billions of dollars into his space program and into his nuclear program and he's not putting that towards the people and obviously that is taking a toll on the economy as well. isha? >> we've heard from the u.n. saying there's so much suffering under way. paula hancocks joining us from seoul, south korea, thanks so much. >> japanese stocks are sharply lower on tuesday. this is extending a global selloff. let's take a look at the numbers there. the nikkei down by almost 5.5%.
10:41 pm
the yield on long-term japanese bonds dropped below zero for the first time ever. we should note many asian markets were closed for the lunar new year and in s&p the s&p asx 200 was also hope and that was down almost 3%. >> the news wasn't much better on wall street, the dow dropping another 178 points and that was a bounce back from steeper losses earlier in the day. s&p 500 lost 1.4%, and the nasdaq fell 1.8%. investors were scared off by the crash in oil prices which dropped below $30 a barrel. one strategist called it a stampede of selling. >> when we come back, pop star beyonce is drawing the ire of one well-known politician. a look at the controversy over her super bowl halftime performance in just a moment. you're watching cnn.

the super bowl champion denver broncos are celebrating their title in style. they enjoyed a warm welcome back home hon monday hoisting the lombardi trophy high as they got off that team play. >> but quarterback peyton manning may have had it even better. he went to disneyland and hung out with mickey and mini. i guess that was better. okay. a little odd, isn't it? >> that's actually keeping in peyton manning. he's very sweet. >> sweet. >> the stars at the halftime shows aren't being left out either with many praisy beyonce's performance. ♪ let's get in formation ♪ ♪ let's get in formation >> this is all being called politically charged. it was a song by beyonce which paid tribute to the black lives matter movement, malcolm x and the black panthers and that's not sitting well with a few people, including the former new york mayor rudy giuliani who had this to say on fox news.
10:46 pm
>> it was terrible. >> coldplay and bruno mars. >> i don't even know why we have this. >> got to do something hat halftime. >> not hollywood, and i thought it was really outrageous that she used it as a platform to attack police officers. >> a social political commentators joins us and you were shaking your head as you heard from the former mayor giuliani saying she used it as a platform to attack police officers. some seeing this performance as really insendry. i mean, was it? >> first of all, i loved coldplay's performance. >> nobody is talking about coldplay. >> all talking about beyonce. >> but i think they are stretching, definitely stretching. first of all, artists are known for using their platforms to push several political issues whether it's environmental racism or adopt a pet okay, you know, clean water. so, you know, i think the former new york mayor needs to go somewhere and sit down. this is a stretch.
10:47 pm
look, i've heard songs before that actually do call for attacks on police. i didn't see that yesterday. i didn't hear that yesterday. >> what about the venue though because this is part of the argument though. mayor giuliani was saying he wants good wholesome entertainment in between the people getting concussions. was the super bowl halftime show an appropriate place for this particular song? >> why not? i mean, we're out -- look, almost every american was watching that game except for me. i only tuned in for the halftime show. >> for coldplay. >> we know that, yes. >> and why not? why wouldn't you not do it there? i mean, let's thing back to -- let's think back to the oscars and let's look at miss little feather who wouldn't and accepted the award from marlon brando, that was the platform, intentionally used to call attention to what's going on at wounded knee. what beyonce tried to do
10:48 pm
yesterday and obviously it worked because we're all talking about it today. >> let's talk about the fact that it was beyonce who actually did it, who used the platform. >> yeah, kind of shocked. >> i mean, seriously. >> she's not known for being so political. look, at the end of the day, whether you're a pop star or you're just a regular person like myself, you can't help but not notice what's going on in the world around you, so i'm sure both her and jay-z are aware of what's happening in terms of police brutality and police killings. what's going on in flint, michigan, what's going on -- >> they gave money, $1.5 million through tidal. >> the haters got to stop doing is, this one, just because we're black does not mean that when we came out we were given a membership to black lives member and naacp, okay? people always like to assume because you think black lives matter that you're the leader or you're a part of the organization. i think she just wanted to say look, i see what's going on. let me use my celebrityism for
10:49 pm
some good, and i wish more artists would do that. >> very quickly. do you think the people who are outraged, aren't they the ones telling the rest of us to lighten up and not be so politically correct and take it easy on other issues? >> they very well could be. at the end of the day, the whole issue around police brutality and police killings will not go anywhere and i certainly doubt that beyonce will be the last artist to use a platform like the super bowl game to put that message out there. >> i think you're right. i think she's far from the last celebrity. >> may do it again. >> and a pleasure. thank you. >> thank you. >> next here on "cnn newsroom," the republican presidential candidates messed up their entrance into the debate but wait until you see who also most memory has tripped up. erty bein. that is cyber-crime and it affects each and every one of us.

10:55 pm
>> reporter: when the moderators finally introduced -- >> the republican candidates. >> reporter: only four were there and chris christie volunteered. >> can i introduce kasich. >> yes, yes. >> reporter: what a mess tweeted wendy williams which prompted carson to bring up an entrance wendy made on stage. aqib talib wanted to celebrate on the super bowl post-game show and he more or less tackled himself. crashing the set. >> it's okay. sometimes your entrance can go just fine, but then it's okay for your exit. remember when president bush had trouble handling those locked door handles in china? on "the view" the hosts recreated the republican snafu. >> michelle collins. >> reporter: as they made their entrance and when it comes to hailing these chiefs. ♪ better hail them louder.

america's choice. a handful of voters in new hampshire kick off the nation's first presidential primary of 2016. and she has a shot at becoming the first female president, but hillary clinton is struggling to connect with some young women voters. and we will look at why that may be. plus, cnn is in damascus to hear what syrians in government-controlled areas are saying about the ongoing war there. also ahead, why a chicago police officer is suing the estate of the teenager he shot to death. hello and welcome to our viewers here in the united states and all around the world. i'm rosemary church. >> and i'm errol barnett. thanks for joining our two-hour
11:01 pm
block. "cnn newsroom" starts now. the very first ballots of the new hampshire primary have been cast. it all started in the little place called dixville notch. and two other small towns just after midnight local time. >> now, with just nine votes there to count in dixville notch -- i repeat, only nine votes. john kasich beat donald trump 3-2 on the republican side. the other four votes went to democrat bernie sanders. a more telling tally, though, might be the latest cnn/wmur poll. take a look. it shows donald trump leading republicans with 31%. that is 14 percentage points ahead of marco rubio, as you see there, in second place. ted cruz, you remember the winner from iowa is at 14%. >> and for the democrats in new hampshire bernie sanders holds a
11:02 pm
big lead. 26 points ahead of hillary clinton. >> the democratic candidates made their last appeal to voters on the eve of the new hampshire primary. hillary clinton touted her experience and asked voters to support her at a rally. take a look. >> you've got to ask yourself, who could do all aspects of the job? you know, that's really what this is about. who can get the economy moving again, get those jobs created, get those incomes rising. who can protect our families and keep our families safe. i will ask you. respectfully to please consider giving me the chance to do this job for you. >> meanwhile, at a rally forler rival bernie sanders mocked claims that he could be influenced by campaign contributions. >> what our campaign is about is
11:03 pm
3 1/2 million people, 3 1/2 million individual contributions averaging $27 apiece. so there it is. i confess to you all. i am indebted. i am owned by the folks who make $27 campaign contributions. >> and former new york city mayor michael bloomberg says he is still seriously thinking about a presidential bid. in an interview with "financial times" bloomberg said he was looking at all his options when asked about entering the race. >> the media mogul also said he's listening to what candidates are saying and what primary voters are doing. on the republican side donald trump appears to have a commanding lead in new hampshire, but it's worth noting that almost a third of republican voters there say they have not made up their minds as
11:04 pm
to whom they are going to vote for. >> that's right. it's a very important point. and as jim acosta reports, the republican race for second place is still very much up in the air and the candidates are becoming much more combative. >> we have to get rid of the bushes of the world. >> reporter: just one day before the new hampshire primary the battle for the republican nomination has descended into name calling and taunts between donald trump and his favorite target, jeb bush. >> then he says see, i'm the only one taking on donald trump, i'm not afraid of donald trump, i'm -- he's like a child. he's like a spoiled child. >> reporter: but the former florida governor is no longer ignoring the attacks. >> donald trump, you're the loser. >> reporter: bush is throwing counterpunches in what may be a last-ditch effort to slam the brakes on trump's fasts-moving campaign and save his own. >> it's a long list of things that donald trump says that disparages people. i find it remarkable that as a candidate for president he would think that that's evidence he's

a strong person. he's not. >> the two men are at war on twitter. trump tweeting "everybody is laughing at jeb bush. spent $100 million and is at bottom of pack. a pathetic figure." and bush swinging back, reminding voters of trump's attacks on john mccain, a former new hampshire winner. bush tweeted, "you aren't just a loser, you're a liar and a whiner." trump told wolf blitzer bush is losing his nerve. >> he's a sad person who has gone absolutely crazy. i mean, this guy is -- he's a nervous wreck. i've never seen anything like it. >> reporter: their brawl comes as a new cnn/wmur poll shows trump still way out in front. one key question heading into the primary is how much damage was done to marco rubio after his shaky debate performance over the weekend. >> here's the bottom line. this notion that barack obama doesn't know what he's doing is just not true. >> there it is. there it is. the memorized 25-second speech. >> that's the reason why -- >> reporter: chris christie says it's proof rubio is not ready for primetime. >> when the lights get that
11:06 pm
bright, you either shine or you melt. we cannot afford to have a president who melts. >> rubio had no regrets. >> people keep -- in the press anyway-y do you keep saying the same thing about obama trying to change america? i'm going keep saying that a million times because i believe it's true. >> reporter: also unclear is how well john kasich and ted cruz will do. they're also fighting for second place. and cruz appears to be downplaying expectations. >> we never viewed any of these states as a must-win. we are here in new hampshire competing for the votes and at this point it's a turnout game. >> reporter: the trump campaign is sounding much more confident about new hampshire than about iowa. campaign manager cory lewandowski tells cnn iowa was about informing voters about the caucus process whereas new hampshire is about getting people to the polls. lewandowski noted you're not hearing ted cruz boast about his ground game here in new hampshire anymore. jim acosta, cnn, manchester, new hampshire. >> mark preston is the executive
11:07 pm
editor of cnn politics, and he joins us now from dixville notch in new hampshire. you know, there are reportedly some 300,000 undeclared voters who are only now deciding which party to vote for and then which candidate. that's amazing to me. but mark, just explain what the process will be there. what we'll see in the next 24 hours and which candidate might benefit from this type of primary. >> well, errol, certainly the polls have opened and closed here in dixville notch, a town of nine people, if you can imagine that. two other communities as you noted has already voted tonight but now it switches to the southern part of the state, the more populous part of the state where the candidates have been spending all of their time, towns such as manchester, concord, nashua on the sea coast and portsmouth. what we're looking at right now according to the polls is the businessman donald trump holds a commanding lead right now. the question is can he maintain that lead and who will come in second, third, fourth and quite frankly fifth right now. we're look at who could be the fifth horse out of new
11:08 pm
hampshire. on the democratic side we have bernie sanders with a considerable lead over hillary clinton and the question is how much is hillary clinton going to do here in new hampshire. she tried to do her best but really has focused on moving out of new hampshire and focus on the african-american vote. we saw her leave new hampshire on sunday to go to flint, michigan, a city that's been racked with toxic water. a city with a very high african-american population. a city that 40% of the residents live below the poverty line. what we're seeing right now is hillary clinton focusing on the southern part of the united states, specifically south carolina the next stop on this train, errol. >> now, on the republican side it will be important to watch how the candidates fall behind donald trump, how close they are to him in the polls. for example, john kasich and chris christie have both spent a considerable amount of time there holding dozens of town halls, really developing their ground game trying to be the so-called establishment choice. i also have this image i want to
11:09 pm
show you of just the hunl amount of mail that undecided voters get. this is on the twitter page of trent spiner, the executive director of the "new hampshire union leader." which candidate are you seeing making the most effort there? >> reporter: well, listen, i think john kasich the ohio governor has really staked his candidacy here in new hampshire. in fact, he came to dixville notch, this very tiny community. he came here. he held a town meeting. it drew about 60 residents from the surrounding area. john kasich, from what we're told from other campaigns in their internal polling, is actually moving up. so it will be interesting to see where john kasich the ohio governor, where he comes out. jeb bush as well has actually shown a little bit of fire that we haven't seen so far. he did that in a debate. he took on donald trump head on saturday evening. as they move on to south carolina, he seems to be well established down there. folks in south carolina tend to like the bush family. so we'll see where he comes out in new hampshire as he heads
11:10 pm
down to south carolina. >> mark preston is in dixville notch. the executive editor of cnn politics. a very big day ahead. get your rest, mark. thanks for joining us. >> thank you, sir. and on the other side of politics democratic candidate bernie sanders tops hillary clinton in new hampshire polls thanks to a key demographic. clinton trails sanders by 11 percentage points among women. that's according to a cnn/wmur poll. cnn's gary tuchman takes a look at why many young women are flocking to support sanders. >> reporter: a college gymnasium with many young women. self-described progressive democrats. people hillary clinton wants and needs for her presidential bid. but these female millennials aren't here for hillary clinton. they're here for bernie sanders. >> i would like to see a woman in the white house. hillary clinton, no. >> reporter: entry polls at the iowa caucuses show democratic women under the age of 30 favor bernie sanders by an
11:11 pm
overwhelming margin. >> a lot of what i hear bernie sanders speaking about is for college kids and helping them out once they graduate. >> what we're talking about is free tuition at public colleges and universities. >> reporter: the free tuition proposal resonates for many young women who are choosing sanders over clinton. but those here have other reasons too. >> just because somebody's a woman doesn't necessarily mean they're right for the job. i want to make sure they have the right qualifications and the right standards and they have the right morals. >> i don't really trust in what she has to say. it's like i don't really believe in her. >> reporter: at this rally at new hampshire's daniel webster college -- [ applause ] -- and a later rally at a manchester theater there are other reasons young women who very much want to see a woman president say they are willing to wait for that. >> at the end of the day you have to vote for your interest. and right now bernie just fits my interest better than hillary does. >> reporter: susan elsstz is over 30 years old, the dean of
11:12 pm
the college and supporting hillary clinton. >> it's time. >> what do you say to those who say it's not her time? >> it's confusing to me. i'm excited they're involved in the process but it's very confusing to me and i don't understand what those issues are and how hillary hasn't been able to make that case to those women. >> reporter: but some of the young women here say she has made her case and it's probably not enough. >> i would love to see a woman in the white house. i don't know if hillary clinton is that candidate. i don't know if she is that person to break that barrier because of the different strings that come attached with hillary. >> reporter: the united states turns 240 years old this july 4th. and after two centuries and four decades of independence, not only has there never been a female u.s. president. there's never been a female democratic or republican presidential nominee. history will one day be made. but it's clear there are many female democrats who are very wild for the party who prefer it not be this year. gary tuchman, cnn, nashua, new

with syrian regime forces closing in on aleppo, tens of thousands of syrians have fled to the turkish border. there, though, they are stranded. >> turkey already shelters more than 2 1/2 million syrians. and for now the refugees are not being allowed to cross the border. >> relentless russian air strikes have allowed syrian government forces to advance on the opposition stronghold. >> hala gorani has more on the pivotal role aleppo plays in syria's five-year conflict. >> reporter: with the full force of russia's military behind them, syrian government forces are sweeping rapidly toward aleppo. if they manage to control the whole city, the battle could
11:18 pm
prove to be a game changer in syria's civil war. aleppo is the most strategically important territory held in part by opposition forces. syria's largest city. and since they last control of homs last year, the only major urban area where the rebels are still strong. but over the past few weeks syrian government forces backed up by the russian air force have been tightening their grip around aleppo, solidifying their control in the rural areas around the city. last week assad's forces even took control of the main supply route into the city. if as expected they target this area of the north, next the rebels could become entirely cut off. rebel fighters and civilians face the prospect of life under siege. they already endure frequent air strikes. the bombardments have sent tens of thousands fleeing to the turkish border, where many are being held in makeshift camps.
11:19 pm
the rapid advance of assad's forces into these parts of aleppo signifies how russian involvement is changing the tide of the conflict. the offensive already derailed the u.n.-led peace talks, which have been put on hold until later this month. hala gorani, cnn, london. a new u.n. report accuse all sides in the syrian conflict of committing war crimes. the report found the syrian government, anti-government groups, and terrorist groups systematically committed murders, rapes, torture, and imprisonment. >> now, the report says the vast majority of detainees are being held by the government. former detainees said cellmates were beaten to death during interrogations or they died from unclean water or a lack of food or a lack of medical care. >> the government's current push into aleppo has some regime supporters thinking the conflict could finally be nearing an end. >> fret plied gen talked with
11:20 pm
syrians in the capital damascus. >> reporter: the syrian army's recent advances against rebel groups have bolstered the assad regime's position. and they've clearly also had an impact here in government-controlled damascus. more traffic. more people out on the streets, and more optimism among regime supporters. things are getting better thanks to the leadership of president assad, this man says, and thanks to the syrian army and the paramilitary forces. and this man adds, "our army is winning. it's a strong army and it's protected by god." but for much of last year the syrian government was losing ground. various rebel factions closed in on government strongholds in the north and the south of the country. but russian air power and help from pro-iranian militias appear to be turning the tide in this five-year conflict, leading some
11:21 pm
to question the point of diplomacy. while the u.n. and the united states continue to say that only diplomacy can solve the syrian crisis, an increasing number of people here in government-controlled territory seem to believe that there could be a military solution to the conflict. that is, if bashar al assad's army could build on the gains it's made in recent weeks. but the government's offensive comes at a high price. tens of thousands fleeing toward the turkish border, looking to escape the onslaught. meanwhile, speculation that assad's main adversaries, turkey and saudi arabia, might be planning incursions into northern syria, leading to this warning from the foreign minister. "any troops that invade our territory will go home in wooden coffins," walid moallem said. and even on the streets of damascus not everybody's sure the government's momentum will
11:22 pm
carry on. >> i don't think it's going to end soon. i don't think anyone's winning. it's a no win. i don't know. it's my personal opinion. >> reporter: even with the optimism brought on by the recent gains, one thing remains the same for syrians. the uncertainty of what the future will bring. fred pleitgen, cnn, damascus. u.s. president barack obama will ask congress for $1.8 billion in emergency funds to combat the zika virus. the disease has been linked to a potentially deadly birth defect, and it's spreading quickly in at least 30 countries and territories, mostly in south america. >> now, that number could rise as visitors return from brazil's carnaval and the olympics, two huge tourist events. dr. anthony fauci of the u.s. national institutes of health spoke in washington about efforts toward a vaccine. >> we have already started to develop the vaccine in the early stages, and we can predict that
11:23 pm
we likely would be in phase 1 trial just to determine if it's safe and if it induces a good response probably by the end of the summer and get that going by the end of this year. and if it makes it safe go to the next stage. unlikely to have a vaccine that's widely available for a few years but we certainly could take the initial steps. >> that's certainly important of course. let's move to weather now. parts of california are experiencing record heat this week while the coldest air of the season is moving into the eastern u.s. meteorologist pedram javaheri joins us now to talk more about this and the outlook. >> start off with california. we know it's an el nino season. cooler, wetter conditions expected. it's been much the case for parts of california. but the heat you're experiencing right now pretty impressive. take a look at these kofrks observations. close to 90 degrees fahrenheit. in a few spots in california. that's the usc campus in los angeles make it up to 88
11:24 pm
degrees. i think errol can relate to that. record dating back to 1996. monterey, california makes it up to 93 degrees. well above the record of 78 fahrenheit. you notice sacramento, san francisco even setting record temperatures across that region. you see the ridges, deflects the steering currents in the atmosphere. the storm track well to the north. dive into the south. across southern california we had a santa ana event in place. winds coming from higher elevations sinking down toward lower elevation. i also use the analogy of a bicycle pump as you pump your bike tire you feel the air beginning to warm up because the air is compressing. what's happening is the air being forced down from a higher elevation down toward the valleys of southern california. the air temperatures warm up drastically. take a look at this. he this is the forecast high on a february day on tuesday in los angeles. mid 80s expected. santa barbara expected to make it up to 80 or so degrees. 74 around the region in san francisco. el nino in place. the areas in green, that's where we've had above normal rainfall
11:25 pm
since the latter portion of december. from december through early -- the beginning of march is when you see the el nino pattern really flourish. across southern california, los angeles out to san diego, that's where we're really struggling to see much in the way of rainfall and of course a lot of time left to still get some rains over the next coming several months. want to show you what's happening across the eastern united states. the storm system barrels up the eastern seaboard. enough moisture in place, enough cold air in place. some snow showers. have people talking across parts of new england because of course new hampshire the primary's taking place there on tuesday. some snow coming in. want to show you what's happening because the stark contrast of the yellows and oranges indicative of extreme warmth across the west. look at the extreme cold across the eastern u.s. so cold pape little action here. polar vortex action taking place sometime saturday into sunday. you remember that turn from several years ago where we had arctic air filter in out toward portions of the northeastern united states. look at these temperatures. in boston minus 1. those are midwestern u.s. temperatures. saturdays with as we head to
11:26 pm
valentine's day new york city seeing a nose dive in the temperatures. central park could get as close as 5 degrees fahrenheit come saturday night into sunday morning. so i think valentine's day might be a good time to stay indoors. >> well, it usually is. >> absolutely. >> what do you mean? >> do tell, mr. barnett. >> thanks very much. i guess polar vortex action, is this like a meteorologist phrase, pva. is that the thing now? >> pva. not to be confused with pda. >> all right. thanks very much, pedram. we'll see you next hour. >> thank you. still to come this hour on "cnn newsroom" the new hampshire primary is just getting started and cnn's jake tapper spoke with several candidates in their final push to convince these undecided voters in the granite state. plus, north korea is celebrating its controversial satellite launch. find out how the launch may be key to kim jong un's plans to boost his space and nuclear weapons program. we're back with that and more. the microsoft cloud allows us to

stronghold in aleppo. the intense fighting has sent tens of thousands of civilians fleeing to the turkish border. turkey is already sheltering 2 1/2 million syrians. we're bringing you some live pictures here where more than 100 people are missing. this almost four days after a strong earthquake toppled buildings in southern taiwan. at least 40 people have been killed. more heavy machinery was brought in on monday night to help remove the debris layer by layer. some people say they're worried the concrete slabs may start to collapse. he may be leading -- he may be leading in the polls, but donald trump is pulling no punches ahead of tuesday's primary vote. continuing to rip opponent jeb bush at a campaign event in salem, new hampshire. >> he's like a child. he's like a spoiled child. he spent $110 million on a
11:32 pm
campaign, and he's nowhere. >> jeb bush is taking his own shots at trump, calling him and his comments desperate, sad, and pathetic. in the democratic race something we haven't seen before. for the first time former president bill clinton went after bernie sanders, attacking his record, his health care plan, and accusing some of his supporters of being sexist. >> people who have gone online to defend hillary and explain, just explain why they supported her have been subject to vicious trolling and attacks that are literal literally too profane often, not to mention sexist, to repeat. >> now, we should note, sanders has disavowed supporters who make sexist remarks, telling cnn, and i quote here, "we don't want that crap." well, the candidates rallied in new hampshire to the final
11:33 pm
minute monday, making their final pitches to win over undecided voters ahead of the critical primary. >> cnn's jake tapper has been following the campaign trail and spoke with both voters and candidates there in manchester. >> reporter: it's political pinball here in new hampshire, with candidates bouncing between at least 30 events across the state today, trying to hit the all-important target of undecided voters. >> carly fee roo fiorina's star day at blake's creamery. she wasn't on the debate stage saturday night but she is here very much in the thick of it trying to get votes from the citizens of new hampshire. despite months of campaigning there's still a lot of convincing to be done on this nose to the grindstone day in the granite state. >> there's probably about four people i'm considering. carly is one of them. >> who are the other three? >> kasich and bernie sanders, oddly enough. >> reporter: this could be carly fiorina's last chance to change voters' minds. >> so you're obviously the underdog here. what's your pitch to voters?
11:34 pm
>> the same pitch i've had all along. see, i'm not a politician. so the pitch doesn't change. we have to take our country back. the system's rigged. the game is stacked. the odds are stacked against the american people. we have to restore citizen government. we have to take our country back. >> reporter: across town hillary clinton brought the full force of the family name to manchester community college. >> wow. thank you all. >> reporter: the former first lady of arkansas had dozens of supporters from that state in the crowd. >> she's been solid before solid was cool. she's there. she's going to step right in the first day and do this job that we need to be done. >> it's called -- >> you can have some white hair. >> reporter: across town we caught up with marco rubio as the former senator braved the snow to get his message out. >> first of all, i'm as conservative as anyone in this race, but i'm the conservative that can unite the conservative movement. p i can bring our party together. i can grow it. i can take our message to people that haven't volted for us before and we're going to win this election. hillary clinton doesn't want to run against me. >> your rivals are saying that
11:35 pm
the debate performance shows you that wouldn't be ready for clinton. what's your response to them? >> well, look, not just that debate but every debate before it i'm shown consistently the ability to answer important and difficult questions i think in a very compelling way. we raised more money after this debate than any other debate we've ever had. so we're excited about it. >> reporter: excitement is in no short supply for one candidate leading the polls here. at the palace theater here in downtown manchester the crowd is getting prepared and getting excited for a bernie sanders get out the vote event. it was a mixed crowd of both older voters and the younger vocal ones who may help him win this state on tuesday. >> he actually has a game plan on how he wants to get stuff done, whereas with hillary i don't trust hillary as a candidate. with the recent thing with the e-mails, and also i feel she's been too involved with the corruption of politics. we are younger, we're in our 20s, we're paying attention and we're going to vote based on what we see and what's going on. >> reporter: jake tapper, cnn, manchester, new hampshire. and coming up here on "cnn newsroom," south korea is

in the wake of its recent and very controversial satellite launch, north korean leader kim jong un is also focusing on boosting the north's trade and economy. but stiff international sanctions could derail his plans. cnn's paula hancocks is in seoul, south korea and she joins us now live. so paula, what is the latest on the satellite that north korea launched into space? what impact will it likely have on north korea's nuclear weapons program? and what sanctions are likely to come as a result of it? >> well, according to a senior
11:40 pm
u.s. defense official it appears the satellite is tumbling in orbit. although another official tells cnn that's not really the concern at this point is not the satellite they're concerned about, it's the rocket that put it filip and the fact that could be used also, that technology, for launching a warhead. now, we know that the sanction talk is ongoing at this point. but of course the international community has to walk a fairly fine line. they want to make sure they punish the leadership without actually punishing those within north korea itself who might be trying to spark growth in the economy. it's called the pride of pyongyang. terungang, a beer with a soft, smooth, and fragrant taste. propaganda from north korea is nothing new. commercially motivated adverts are. >> i think some of what we're seeing in terms of, you know, by north korean standards sort of innovating branding and marketing of their products is
11:41 pm
genuinely targeting chinese consumers to see if they can get into the chinese market. >> reporter: china is one of the few markets in the world that the heavily sanctioned north korea can access. its portal to the rest of the world. visiting a cosmetics factor last year north korean leader kim jong un says he wanted the hasu brand to become internationally recognized. reliable data doesn't exist but south korea said last year trade between the two was at a record high. at $2.7 billion. despite high tensions over the summer. trade with china in 2014 was $7.6 billion. representing 90% of all north korean trade. kim jong un has made the economy part of successive new year's speeches. this year calling for all efforts to be made to build "an economic giant." >> after the inauguration of the kim jong un regime we have been witnessing many changes,
11:42 pm
including new restaurants and western style and cafe and taxi running on the street. >> reporter: not to mention the new ski resort and an amusement park. all welcome developments for the elite and those living in pyongyang. but in the rural areas there are still reports of food insecurity and malnutrition. a twotrack economy with a gap in between continuing to rise. farmers now work with incentive-led schemes, however, allowing them to keep more if they grow more. and the days of the late kim jong il's disastrous economic decisions are gone. >> they cannot go back. they've lost the mechanisms of a command economy, of a soviet style economy. and what's really remarkable about kim jong un is you can see he's not trying to go back. >> kim jong un has made his policy quite clear. it is in korean called byon byong jun. he's having a dual track approach, a policy -- on the one
11:43 pm
hand he wants a very robust nuclear weapons program. on the other hand, he also wants a strong economy. but of course once he's pumping billions of dollars into the former it's difficult to see how he could truly achieve the latter. rosemary. >> paula hancocks reporting there live from seoul in south korea. many thanks to you as always. a chicago police officer who shot and killed a teenager is now suing the boy's estate for more than $10 million. >> officer robert rialmo claims he only shot 19-year-old quinn-toneio le grier after the teen swung at him with a baseball bat. the officer says he's suffering extreme emotional trauma. legreer's 55-year-old neighbor was also killed. police say she was accidentally shot. >> this is an emotional and psychological trauma that officer rialmo's going to have to carry with him for the rest of his life. >> now, legrier's family filed a
11:44 pm
wrongful death lawsuit, saying he did not pose a threat to the officer. here's how the family's lawyer described it back in december. >> information out there about a combative subject. what we know is that as you just heard quintonio was inside the building when he was shot and the police officer who shot him was outside the building 20 to 30 feet away. so this is just after the fact justification trying to justify what happened. >> the officer's attorney says people are treating confrontations like this as a way to make money since the city settled another case for $5 million. an independent investigation is ongoing. south african president jacob zuma is under fire from opposition groups right now. they are accusing him of using taxpayer funds for work on a personal home. and their claims have made it all the way to a constitutional court, which will rule if zuma must reimburse the state. that hearing is set to begin

very soon. david mckenzie joins us now from johannesburg with more on all of this. i know there's a bit of activity outside the court there, david. but the expansion ever zuma's residence has been a controversial topic for years there. i remember from my time in the country. his team defends all of the spending as security upgrades. but how has this issue now made it all the way up to the constitutional court? >> reporter: well, this is the headache that just won't go away for jacob zuma, errol. and people are calling this the week from hell for the south african president. we are here at the constitutional court here, the highest court in the land in south africa, where separate opposition groups are bringing to the judges a possible case that they hope will be heard by the constitutional court where they're going to try and see what the public protectors house here. that's a key post in south africa. in oversight over the executives. as you say, from your time in
11:46 pm
south africa, this issue of the president's pa lashs homestead in rural kwazula natel has been dogging the president for years. opposition groups are trying to get him to pay back the millions of dollars that they say was used by him incorrectly, using taxpayers money to make major upgrades to that residence. and it's all in the context of a major push against jacob zuma, who was seen really as untouchable in this country until recent months with controversial moves by the presidency to sack the finance minister, then quickly reinstate a more experienced person, seeing the economy struggle here in south africa. it's almost like the opposition groups here smell blood. it's a very crucial time here in africa's most sophisticated economy. >> and david, corruption itself has been holding south africa back, many critics would say, economically and socially. but no matter the outcome of
11:47 pm
today's decision, do opposition groups at the economic alliance, the economic freedom fighters, do they feel they now have a kind of opening to start addressing that issue of corruption overall? >> i think you're very right there. they smell an opening. they smell blood. just a few days ago president jacob zuma surprised many by saying he's actually willing to pay back some of the money that the critics say he owes on this estate. this goes way beyond just the issue of a president's homestead. it goes about the so-called -- well, the accused hegemony that president jacob zuma, opposition groups say has run this country and the level of cronyism that is endemic in this country. they say it's hurt the economy. they say it's hurt the prospects of the southern people. and these scenes behind me of opposition groups and riot police, i think this is something we're going to see a lot this year as we run up to crucial elections mid-year here
11:48 pm
in south africa. the power of jacob zuma appears to be if not crumbling certainly being chipped away at. and you could see some very dramatic moves this week including the state of the nation address on thursday in capetown, where you could see scenes unfolding in parliament. it's really a potentially crucial moment in south africa political history. >> yeah, very good point there, david. and we are seeing live pictures nearby from where you are. those dresses in red affiliated with a certain political party. it's something south africans are not used to seeing, the top guy, the president being held accountable. typically you see subordinates being disciplined. so we'll certainly continue to connect with you in the hours ahead to see what happens at today's hearing. david mckenzie live for us in joburg approaching 9:50 in the morning there. thank you, david. >> we'll take a break here on "cnn newsroom." still to come, the moment in the u.s. election campaign that some

12:01 am
and 100 are wounded. several are dead. we understand that rescue workers are on the scene. as soon as we get new information and pictures and video we'll bring it to you this hour. republicans are getting an early boost in the new hampshire primary. the first primary of the u.s. presidential election kicked off just after midnight local time in dixville notch and two other small towns. >> now with just nine votes to count in dixville notch, john kasich has six of them. ted cruz led with 9 of the 21 cast there.
12:02 am
according to the latest poll, donald trump leads the republicans and marco rubio is second and ted cruz is at 14%. >> for the democrats in new hampshire, bernie sanders holds a huge lead as you see. some 26 points ahead of hillary clinton and the initial voting results from the three little towns are reflecting this lead. so stay tuned for that. one of the more colorful moments in this new hampshire race came monday as donald trump blasted ted cruz. >> a trump supporter shouted an indelicate term to describe the senator. >> you're not allowed to say and i never expect to hear that from you again. she said -- i never expect to hear that from you again. she said [ bleep ]. terrible. >> jim acosta has more on the harsh trash talking that's

racheting up in the republican field. >> yes, let's imagine, finally, making sure women get equal pay for equal work in america. >> reporter: hillary clinton fighting for every vote on the last day before the crucial new hampshire primary, including a critical voting block, young women. madeleine all bright addressing the issue this weekend. >> there's a special place in hell for women who don't help each other. >> reporter: it angered a bunch of women for whom gender isn't an issue. they explained why women aren't going for bernie sanders. >> women get more radical. when you're young you're thinking where are the boys, the boys are with bernie. >> reporter: according to the latest poll in new hampshire, 64% of democratic women under 45
12:04 am
support sanders. clinton does better among women over 45 leading sanders by nine points. sunday clinton addressed the issue reminding voters that the playing field isn't level for women. >> we are still living with a double standard. i don't know anything other to do than just keep forging through it and take the slings and arrows that come with being a woman in the arena. >> reporter: bill clinton has called out bernie bros for online attacks against his wife. >> explain why they supported her have been subject to vicious trolling and attacks that are literally too profane often not to mention sexist to repeat. >> reporter: sanders has rejected that tactic. >> anybody who is supporting me and is doing sexist things is --
12:05 am
we don't want them. don't want them. that's not what this campaign is about. >> reporter: but in a state that she won in 2008, clinton has announced that this time around a comeback in new hampshire may not be in the cards. >> i know i've got an uphill climb. >> reporter: this debate on display, one of his surrogates, emily radakowski responding to gloria steinum. why am i here? i'm not here for the boys. the executive editor of cnn politics joins us from dixville notch in new hampshire. there are reportedly some 300,000 undeclared voters who are only now deciding which party to vote for and then which candidate. that's amazing to me. mark, just explain what the process will be there, what we'll see in the next 24 hours and which candidate might benefit from this type of primary. >> reporter: well, errol, the
12:06 am
polls have closed here in dixville notch, a town of 9 people. two other communities have already voted tonight. now it switches to the southern part of the state where the candidates have been spending all of their time. towns such as manchester, concord, nashua on the sea coast. businessman donald trump holds a commanding lead right now. the question is can he maintain that lead and who will come in second, third, fourth and quite frankly fifth right now. we're looking who could be the fifth horse out of new hampshire. on the democratic side we have bernie sanders with a considerable lead over hillary clinton and the question is is how much is hillary clinton going to do here in new hampshire? she tried to do her best here but has focused on moving out of new hampshire and focusing on the african-american vote. we saw her leave on sunday to go to flint, michigan, to deal with the water, a city that 40% of
12:07 am
the residents live below the poverty line. what we're seeing is hillary clinton focusing on the southern part of the united states, specifically south carolina, the next stop on this train, errol. >> now on the republican side it will be important to watch how the candidates fall behind donald trump, how close they are to him in the polls. for example, john kasich and chris christie have both spent a considerable amount of time there holding dozens of town halls, really developing their ground game trying to be the so-called establishment choice. i have this issue of the huge amount of mail that undecided voters get. this is from the new hampshire union leader. which candidate are you seeing making the most effort there? >> well, listen, i think john kasich, the ohio governor has really staked his candidacy here. he came to dixville notch. he came here and held a town meeting. it drew about 60 residents from
12:08 am
the surrounding area. john kasich from what we're told from other campaigns and their internal polling is actually moving up. so it will be interesting to see where john kasich, the ohio governor, where he comes out. jeb bush as well has shown a little bit of fire that we haven't seen so far. he did that. he took on donald trump head on on saturday evening. as they moved to south carolina he seems to be well established down there. folks in south carolina tend to like the bush family. we'll see where he comes out in new hampshire as he heads down to south carolina. >> mark preston in dixville notch. a very big day ahead. get your rest, mark. thanks for joining us. >> reporter: thank you, sir. as we just heard, the republican race for second place is still very much in the air. >> the candidates, they are getting more combative. here is cnn's jim acosta. >> we have to get rid of the bushes of the world.
12:09 am
>> reporter: just one day before the new hampshire primary the battle for the republican primary has descended into name-calling and taunts between donald trump and his favorite target, jeb bush. >> then he said, see, i'm the only one taking on donald trump. i'm not afraid of donald trump. he's like a child. he's like a spoiled child. >> reporter: the former florida governor is no longer ignoring the attacks. >> donald trump, you're the loser. >> reporter: bush is throwing counter punches in what may be a last ditch effort to slam the brakes on donald trump's fast moving campaign. >> it's a long list of things that donald trump says that dispages people. i find it remarkable as a candidate for president that that would be evidence that he's a strong person. it's not. >> reporter: the two men at war on twitter. trump tweeting everyone is laughing at jeb bush. bush leaning back reminding trump's attacks on john mccain, a former new hampshire winner. bush tweeted, you aren't just a
12:10 am
loser, you're a liar and a whiner. trump told wolf blitzer, bush is losing his nerve. >> he's a sad person who has gone absolutely crazy. this guy is a nervous wreck. i've never seen anything like it. >> reporter: their brawl comes as a new cnn/wmur poll shows trump way out in front. one key question was how much damage was done to marco rubio after his shaky debate performance over the weekend. >> there it is. the 25 second speech. >> reporter: chris christie said it proves rubio is not ready for primetime. the lights get that bright and he plelts. >> reporter: rubio had no regrets. >> why do you keep saying the same thing about obama trying to change america. i'm going to say that a million
12:11 am
times because i believe it's true. >> reporter: also unclear how ted cruz and john kasich will do. cruz downplays expectations. >> we never viewed them as a must win. we are here in new hampshire competing for the votes. at this point it's a turnout game. >> reporter: the trump campaign is feeling more confident about new hampshire than iowa. iowa is about information voters about the caucus process. new hampshire is about getting people to the polls. jim acosta, cnn, manchester, new hampshire. be sure to tune in for our continuing coverage of the new hampshire presidential primary all day right here on cnn. now it was a brutal day for japan's stock market. the nikkei took a nose dive. we'll take a look at the numbers after this short break. stay with us.

collided head on. there are reports of some fatalities. police say at least 100 people are injured, eight critically. that is all we know at this point. we would, of course, continue to bring you more information on this as we get it. protests turned violent in hong kong monday night in the lunar new year. you can see demonstrators attacking police with household objects. >> police say 48 of their officers were injured in all of this, 24 people arrested. the clashes began after police tried to remove some food vendors from a busy street and all the commotion just escalated. there's no apparent connection to the umbrella movement in 2014 that disrupted that same area. at least 35 people died trying to reach greece on monday. turkey's state news agency reports two boats capsized off
12:17 am
turkey's western coast in the aegean sea. >> they were able to save three people in the second boat. days of gail force winds and freezing temperatures stopped them. >> the drownings underscored the urgency to german chancellor angela merkel's meeting with the prime minister of turkey. the attacks on aleppo sent thousands more fleeing. >> merkel said she would renew pressure on the u.n. to stop attacks on syrian civilians. >> translator: we are now in the last few days not only appalled but also shocked by the human suffering of tens of thousands of people through bombing attacks and also bombing attacks originating from the russian side. >> and a new u.n. report accuses
12:18 am
all sides in the syrian conflict of committing war crimes. the u.n. commission of inquiry on syria says detainees have been arbitrarily arrested, kidnapped, beaten, and tortured by the syrian government, anti-government groups and terrorist groups. others have died due to inhumane living conditions and lack of medical care. >> the massive scale of deaths suggest that the government of syria is responsible for extermination, a crime against humanity, and it's brought 234 pursuance of a policy to attack civilian population. >> he went on to say that nearly every surviving detainee has unimaginable abuses. syria has reached out to the syrian delegation at the u.n. so far no response. the push into aleppo, meantime, is viewed as a potential turning point in the five year conflict.
12:19 am
>> for some regime supporters it's a sign the civil war may be nearing an end. fred pleitgen talked with syrians in damascus. >> reporter: the syrian army's recent advances against rebel groups have bolstered the assad's position. they clearly have had an impact here in government controlled damascus. more traffic, more people out on the streets and more optimism among regime supporters. things are getting better thanks to the leadership of president assad, this man says, and thanks to the syrian army and the paramilitary forces. this man adds, our army is winning. it's a strong army and it's protected by god. but for much of last year, the syrian government was losing ground. various rebel factions closed in on government strong holds in the north and the south of the country, but russian air power
12:20 am
and help from pro iranian militias appear to be turning the tide in this five year conflict leading some to question the point of diplomacy. while the u.n. and the united states continue to say that only diplomacy can solve the syrian crisis, an increasing number of people here in government controlled territories seem to believe that there could be a military solution to the conflict. that is, if bashar al assad's army can build on the gains it's made in recent weeks. but the government's offensive comes at a high price. tens of thousands fleeing towards the turkish border looking to escape the on slot. showing that turkey and saudi arabia might be planning incursions into northern syria leading to this warning from the foreign minister. any troops that invade our territory will go home in wooden coffins. and even on the streets of
12:21 am
damascus not everyone is sure the government's momentum will carry on. >> i don't think it's going to end soon and i don't think anyone is winning. it's annoying. it's my personal opinion. >> reporter: even with the optimism brought on by the recent gains, one thing remains the same for syrians, the uncertainty of what the future will bring. fred pleitgen, cnn, damascus. turkish state media quotes the prime minister saying the country will admit nearly 30,000 syrian refugees, quote, when necessary. i want to go to arwa damon live at the turkish/sishian border where thousands are stranded. this is some progress from yesterday. what sort of time frame is turkey talking about here? what does it mean exactly when it says it will allow 30,000 refugees in when necessary? >> reporter: well, that's the
12:22 am
problem, rosemary. there is no specific time frame and there is no specific definition. 30,000, well, that's not even necessarily a reflection of how many would potentially be wanting to seek sanctuary within turkey's own borders. the government's justification for this is that they are providing for them on the other side. they've expanded on already pre-existing camps. they've sent over some 2,000 additional tents as well as mobile kitchens, they're providing food and water as well as other ngos and organizations as well. the problem is, those who do want to cross into turkey don't want to sit inside a tent inside syria. they don't think that they are safe there. they have fled this most recent russian bombing campaign as well as the advancement of regime forces and to them to be inside syria is not providing them with the safety that they are so desperately searching for.
12:23 am
we did speak with someone on the other side. he said of those that are waiting on the other side, the vast majority were in tents. those who believe turkey isn't going to open up the borders have decided to go home and it's too difficult to live in the conditions that exist in these camps. there are additional concerns that potentially hundreds of thousands more could end up fleeing the city of aleppo itself as the regime forces under the cover of the russian bombardment advance towards that city. those who are trying to defend aleppo, trying to fight off the regime advance there saying they can only hold out for a few months, rosemary. >> arwa, how are people coping
12:24 am
with this excruciating wait at the border? what conditions are they having to deal with? what is the hardest part of this? >> reporter: i don't think there's any part of this, rosema rosemary, that's actually easy. a lot of these folks that we're seeing fleeing are ones that really held out hope that somehow there would be some sort of a resolution and they wouldn't have to end up making that decision to leave everything that they know and love behind, to leave their homes behind and to go and have to live as a refugee in a tent at the mercy of the non-profit, at the mercy of in this case the turkish government to be able to be allowed access to food, water, medicine, and even a semblance of safety. these are people who are watching their country disintegrate as all syrians have over the last five years. the physical, emotional, psychological toll it takes for an individual is so extreme it can't really be described in words. not to mention what the experience is doing for children
12:25 am
who are watching their parents have to cope with this, no longer in school. the impact this has on a society as a whole is phenomenally extreme, not to mention the sense that syrians have abandonment. they do feel that they've been abandoned on every single level. they've been abandoned by leaders, they've been abandoned by the international community. we heard one woman crying out from one of the tents across the border. she had one sentence she kept repeating over and over, that was please have mercy on us. >> it's hard to even imagine what these people are going through. our arwa damon reporting live from the turkish/syrian border. thank you for great reporting from there. you can learn how you can help those fleeing the violence in syria. just visit cnn.com/impact. u.s. president barack obama
12:26 am
is making it clear that he is taking the zika virus seriously. he will request nearly $2 billion from congress to help combat the mosquito born virus. >> a significant portion of that will be devoted to finding a vaccine. the obama administration maintains that there's no cause for panic. the u.s. centers for disease control are still telling people to be careful. >> cdc, the health and human services and the entire u.s. government is taking this very seriously. for the average american, this is not something that will change your day-to-day life, but if you are pregnant, we have taken the unusual step of recommending that you avoid travel to areas where zika is spreading or if you must travel, you be very vigilant to applying the mosquito repellent. >> the virus is active in 30 countries and territories, mostly in south america.

12:33 am
the weather. snow and messy roadways. now donald trump and bernie sanders enter primary day with strong leads in the polls. there's a lot more to these two races than just the numbers. the new hampshire republican contest looks a lot different than iowa's last week, which was largely about the anti-establishment in a battle between trump and cruz. their closing arguments have taughted executive experience and the ability to mount a campaign that could beat hillary clinton in november if she is the nominee. they are hoping to hold off a surge. marco rubio started with a strong third place finish in iowa, especially after he faultered in saturday night's debate here. on the democratic side polls show a double diblg git lead for bernie sanders over hillary clinton. he's not taking anything for
12:34 am
granted. clintons know new hampshire. hillary clinton rebounded here after losing iowa to barack obama in 2008. it was a family affair with chelsea joining in as well. the snow will be gone by the time most new hampshire voters head out to the polls. they usually turn out in big numbers. the interest and enthusiasm that has surrounded this 2016 race, it will be much the same this time around. cnn, manchester, new hampshire. meanwhile, hillary clinton is facing rumors there's a shakeup in her campaign. >> that's right. several people close to clinton say bernie sanders is posing a tougher challenge than expected in the race for the democratic nomination. in an interview with rachel mad do you clinton stood behind her
12:35 am
team. >> we're going to take stock but it's going to be the campaign that i've got. i'm very confident in the people i have. they're committed to doing the best they have. we're going to take stock. what works, what doesn't work. we're moving into a more diverse electorate, moving into different gio graphic areas. >> meantime, former new york city mayor michael bloomberg said he is still seriously thinking about a presidential bid. bloomberg said he was looking at all of his options when asked about entering the race. >> the media mogul says he's listening to what the candidates are saying and what primary voters are doing. >> be sure to tune in for our continuing coverage of the new hampshire presidential primary all day right here on cnn. now to some other big stories we're watching for you. the markets are open in europe after tumbling monday. >> yeah. and the falling hasn't stopped. look at this. the ftse 100 is down slightly.
12:36 am
the dax in germany down 1/3 of a percent and paris has lost 2/3 of a percent. japanese and australian stocks were down. the nikkei plunged more than 5%. the yield on long-term japanese bonds dropped below zero for the first time. sydney's asx 200 fell nearly 3%. nina desantos joins us live from london. good morning, nina. the benchmark ten year japanese government bond hit 0% for the first time. how is that and some other factors impacting markets in europe? >> yeah, the fact that we've got the treasury with these major countries yielding basically nothing as this exemplifies the flight to safety that investors are doing today. as you can see, today despite the heavy losses yesterday, the markets already losing as you can see somewhere between 1% in
12:37 am
parris to about 1/4 of 1% across the ftse of london in the first 36 minutes of trading. they're plowing into the government bonds be it japanese government bonds, be it the german bonds, et cetera, et cetera. one of the reasons people are so worried about this. if you're going for the safety of the government bond and you're getting no interest on that, remember the banks around the world, central banks in particular, the bank of japan has recently introduced negative interest rates. so banks have to park -- if they're parking money with the central banks, particularly in countries around the world, they have to pay money to park that money with the central banks. that exemplifies the fear that there are equity markets. the big question is are there any fundamentals. that's what a lot of people are debating in the session. they're debating it particularly with regards to the banking sector, errol, which is having the worst day in a while. i want to show you how the european banks are doing after yesterday they got really,
12:38 am
really bruised and battered. companies like hsbc, that's very, very heavily exposed towards asia, that bank. and deutsche bank managing to recover nicely after yesterday getting completely beaten up on the market. there's a reason deutsche bank is up 3% in today's session. it's come out with a statement about an hour or so ago saying, don't worry, investors, it has plenty of money to pay all of its debts to cover all of its positions. there's a number of italian banks out there having a really difficult time convincing the investment community that they are in that kind of position. number of italian banks suspended in today's session. people are so concerned. really one of the main reasons why these markets are falling is concerns about central bank policy action, credibility of that policy action, whether the fed will raise interest rates later on while other central banks continue to stimulate. when it comes to the banking sector that we're worried yet
12:39 am
again back in 2008 that these banks don't have the coiffeurs. the money index is showing extreme fear. whether there are fundamentals behind that fear, that is what people have to decide. >> right. and as is so often the case, nina, people's emotions on the market floor play just as much of a role in the fluctuations as some of the fundamentals as well. the fear is real today. nina desantos live in london this morning. we turn now to this breaking news out of germany. a south bavarian police spokeswoman has just confirmed four people have died in that head-on collision of two trains. 15 people are seriously injured and there are about 40 passengers with injuries or minor injuries. we understand according to the south bavarian police, they say
12:40 am
the trains were traveling in an area in southeast munich and that is where the two trains collided. that's all we know at this point. four people dead. that is the breaking news we are receiving at this point. we'll continue to follow this and bring you the details as they come in to us. now more than 100 people are still missing in taiwan. this after almost four days. there was a strong earthquake and toppled buildings in the southern part of the country. you see the aftermath. at least 40 people have been killed. more heavy machinery was brought in monday night to try to help remove the debris layer by layer, but some people say they are worried the concrete slaps could start to collapse. south african president jacob zuma, everyone in their country, are watching a constitutional court hearing in johannesburg.
12:41 am
>> they're working on upgrades in their home. david mckenzie is live there. david, this has been an ongoing saga for years. how did this make it this far and how is the constitutional court likely to rule on this? >> reporter: that remains to be seen. many say from a legal standpoint that the opposition parties that are bringing this case against jacob zuma and the leadership structure have a very strong case. they're arguing right now in the constitutional court, this is potentially a seminole moment in politics in south africa. people are calling a week from held for jacob zuma, south africa's president. there are protestors approaching this scene from opposition groups. we got to this point, rosemary, because jacob zuma, the president, refused to pay back
12:42 am
the money for the lavish homestead he built on the taxpayer's bill. the critics say that that was a corrupt move, that it cost the taxpayers millions of dollars and is indicative of the overall right of their perspective of the top leadership in south africa. jacob zum ma some dayzys ago sa he would pay back the money to stave off what's going on in the constitutional court already, but really it's as if the opposition parties here smell blood, see an opening to push against the power of the presidency and in the lead up to elections later this year. >> david, as you have been reporting to us, we've been watching the live pictures from inside the constitutional court, the highest court in the land there in south africa. i did want to ask you this, how much does this represent perhaps a turning point of sorts for a country where corruption has long been a problem?
12:43 am
>> well, it is a turning point. there's been a series of turning points in recent months because many felt jacob zuma was untouchable. he has gone through severe legal issues, both relating to criminal cases and civil cases in the past. he's managed to get past those. many saw him as the teflon president here in south africa. since he announced the unexpected sacking of the finance minister late last year which caused the markets here to dive and the rand, the south african currency plummet, he had to backtrack on that decision, people have seen a chink in the armor of the president and an opportunity to test the courts here in south africa and particularly the office of the public protector who they say really made the recommendations on his homestead and that zum ma ignored. so this could be a big push. it is going to be a dramatic week in south african politics.
12:44 am

12:55 am
>> reporter: leopard on the loose. the big cat caused panic after it was spotted strolling through the halls in a school in southern india. police were quickly called in to try and catch the wild animal, but it was not easy. the leopard attacked this man just outside the school next to a swimming pool biting his arm as he tried to flee. at least two others were also hurt. after a 14-hour ordeal, authorities finally tranquilized, captured, and took the leopard to a nearby wildlife park. officials estimate that there are more than 12,000 of the animals in india, some 1500 in this southern state alone. and while the leopard hasn't been seen in the city limits since 2012, authorities say close encounters with the big cats are becoming more frequent as humans continue to encroach on their habitat.
