we're way, way, way up and south carolina has been unbelievable, and by the way, in nevada, in nevada we're winning big, big. we're winning in florida, we're winning everywhere. so i just want to let you know, this is not going to be a waste of anybody's time, believe me. i backed mccain, didn't win. i backed romney, didn't win. i said this time i'm doing it myself. we're watching television before and hearing all these announcers saying, well, who's going to take on trump tonight, who's going to hit him hard. i would say bring them on, who cares. >> donald trump, they confident young man. major garrett is outside the venetian hotel in las vegas where nine republican candidates will share the primetime stage tonight. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. donald trump is loading nationally but republicans don't award the nomination on a national primary, they do it state by state. for the first state, february 1st, iowa caucuses, trump is
ted cruz is leading in two polls appeared they're tied in one. the most three recent surveys show trump in trouble in iowa. will trump attack cruz? maybe, maybe not. cruz has made clear he's not going to attack donald trump and he doesn't need to. cruz has risen in the polls largely by saying he is the one conservative that's taken on the beltway establishment, republican and democrat. if trump attacks cruz, he might find himself cross ways with cruz and his supporters but some of the top conservative radio hosts in the country. rush limbaugh has criticized trump for going after cruz on this basis. that will be an interesting subplot in tonight's debate. so will trump's call to ban all muslims in america. almost everyone on the debate stage has criticized that, some saying it's illegal, some saying it's counter productive. a month ago ben carson was leading in iowa and looked to be a formidable challenger to donald trump, but his soft approach to terrorism and issues
an increaseingly tough debate in this country and in republican circles on how to confront terrorism generally and isis specifically. he'll need a big performance on foreign policy to rebound in this race. two others to watch tonight, marco rubio and chris christie. both are looking to be the alternatives to trump, cruz and carson should republicans want an alternative. christie is basing everything on new hampshire. rubio is just looking to beat expectations in iowa and new hampshire. both will try to sharpen their attacks against those outsiders, trump, cruz and carson so tonight is a big night for christie and rubio as well. gayle -- norah rather. >> good report, major. >> a great wrap-up, thank you so much, major. president obama says again that his military campaign against isis is working. he spoke on monday after meeting with his national security council at the pentagon. it was his fourth attempt to reassure the public since the san bernardino massacre.

because of this photo posted on an islamic militant group's twitter feed. >> look at this picture. mark's company logo and his phone number, still clear as day on the side of that truck. >> yes, a texas plumber's work truck showed up in syria. although pickup truck, desert, giant machine gun, that could still be texas. >> mark oberholtzer owns mark 1 plumber and claims no bun at the dealership that bought his truck told him the decals would stay on it. >> the plumber has received thousands of threatening phone calls. people accused him of supporting terrorists. the calls contained threats of violence, property harm, injury and even delts. oberholtzer is suing the dealership for $1 million. the dealership is looking into exactly what happened. i could see why he'd be very upset about it. >> absolutely. that's his business and his livelihood. his reputation is important. >> now we know remove your decals off of your stuff before

>> is he stronger? >> no. >> and the fight between good and evil. >> i felt a great disturbance in the force. >> as its creator has been called one of the most innovative film makers in history. but it is hard. he considers himself a storyteller. >> didn't you intend to in the beginning create really three movies when you started? and then you decide only to take one part of that life story? >> yeah. i took the first act. then the first act didn't really work. so i said, okay, what i'm going to have to do is take the ending of the third film and put it on the first film. it's what you do. you got a bun were of stuff sitting on your desk as you're creating. let me take that, stick that in here. i wasn't worried that much about the sequels when i was actually making it. because i have to make there the best film. so when i moved onto the other once, i said, geeze, ben kenobi's dead is dad.
and what do writers do? that's what the ending is. but part of it was simply when i got down tosome 069 other movies, i was able to create an environment and a world that wasn't possible when i started the first one. so to me, getting them to do it, ied a always wanted to do, but i could never do it. it was a muppet. >> lucas became a pioneer in the world of special effects. >> the general commandship is dead ahead. >> reporter: his work forever changed the way films are made and he changed how they sound, too. one, two, 3:00, 4:00 rock"? his hit "american graffiti" he opted out of traditional composer.

>> returning from school, the 7-year-old seemed unfazed by any debate of his ailing journey. >> why do kids go to school by thems? >> why do americans not go to school alone? >> this is something an adult does that takes a train to go all alone seems like a big deal what do you think about that? >> not only that. >> why can't kids ride trains by themself, he asks? before we left, we spotted him doing some sweeping, just like a a-year-old would anywhere in the world. for "cbs this morning," i'm seth don't in tokyo. >> boy, it's amazing. >> it works for me. >> it does. >> i'm with you as a mom. i wouldn't do it here, either.
