>> announcer: this morning's eye opener is presented by toyota. let's go places. >> welcome to "cbs this morning." the first presidential debate tonight is likely to be the most watched in history. hillary clinton and donald trump will face each other in prime time for 90 minutes. the television audience could be 100 million people or more. the latest national poll out this mni tied at 46%. clinton led by six points in the same bloomberg politics poll after the convention. >> key advisers for both candidates will be here in studio 57. we'll talk to trump senior communicati communicati communication. and major garrett and nancy
7:04 am
university. >> reporter: this whole scene today and tonight will remind the nation powerfully how improbable this once was. characteristically, trump's preparation far more nonchalant than clinton's. a daring calculation that if successful could catapult his candidacy and if not, might crater it. >> trump is doing great. he's being himself. >> he's ready for the debate. >> reporter: donald trump surrogates suggesting real estate and live team may be enough. >> i think donald trump has been preparing for this debate for his entire lifetime. >> reporter: trump has held no mock debates and devoted little time to briefing books. his recent policy speeches have been on teleprompter. a crutch he will not have
7:05 am
a cautionary note. >> hillary clinton has been doing this most of her life. she's the pro. he should overprepare for it. >> trump pledged to spend $140 million on digital and tv advertising between now and election day. the $100 million tv investment first reported by cbs news will finance ads in 13 states including three added because of tightening poll numbers, wisconsin, new mexico and maine. another predebate development, arch rival ted cruz buried the hatchet and formally backed trump. there's also pre-debate. mark cuban will be the guest. trump returned the psychological

7:07 am
choice to play trump. clinton has studied prior performances to see how others knocked trump offside and they are looking at the seven deadly lies he might tell tonight including he opposed the iraq war from the beginning or he'll get mexico to pay for a border wall and they argue trump needs to be held to the same as clinton. >> you get 90 minutes to look at people and see whether there's depth or substance and whether they are candid. >> six primary debates for clinton and needs a performance tonight that will stop her slide in the polls. the latest cbs news battleground tracker shows her lead has shrunk from 12 points to 8 in
7:08 am
point in colorado. two states where her campaign was so confident a month and a half ago, they stopped airing tv ads. and that's why clinton's aides say that her job tonight is to convince a wide swath of voters that trump lacks detailed policy proposals and is easily provoked. to that end, charlie, you might hear her talk about his admiration of putin or even question whether trump is worth as much as he says he is. >> thanks, clinton campaign manager robby mook is here. good morning. >> good morning. >> follow up on what nancy said. is the goal tonight to tear trump down or build her up and get at the question of trust? >> i'm glad that you asked that. hillary clinton does know that she needs to earn the voters' trust. we found that these unfiltered moments as tim kaine said, 90 minutes up there where she can speak directly to the voters and when she's had the opportunity to talk about not just what her plans are to make a difference
7:09 am
campaign is part of a life-long mission to fight for kids and families, she's done really well. i think it's an outstanding quetion. will trump demonstrate a command of the issues? we think that's a bar every candidate needs to pass. we also are concerned that trump is going to continue to lie. >> why do you think she can change the trust dynamic in one debate when in fact she hasn't been able to do it over a lifetime or in terms of this campaign? >> well, the central question of fight on the side of every day people and has plans that will make a difference in their lives. can voters trust a candidate to get that done and they can trust hillary. a lifetime working with both sides of the aisle and bringing people together and getting real things done. >> we hear that she's preparing for two trumps. what exactly does that mean? tell us a little bit about the preparation what you all have been doing. >> one of the concerns that voters have about donald trump
7:10 am
right temperament to be commander in chief. he's erratic. we don't know whether trump is going to show up to try to have a serious discussion of the issues or whether he's going to bully. we've seen him bullying hillary with mean tweets the last few days. we just don't know who will be there. >> putting mark cuban in the front row who has been vocal against donald trump, is that a little bit of a dig to call him out? >> that was not the intent. >> what was the intent? >> bot s we're proud to have the support of mark cuban who came off of the sidelines. he's not political. he's a businessman. he has a lot of experience creating jobs. we're proud to have his support. he's been outspoken and we're excited to have him there and he represents the kind of people that are coming to this campaign. republican. republican leaning independents who are concerned about donald trump's temperament. >> early indication inviting mark cuban that part of the
7:11 am
skin? >> you know, again, we're really focused on this opportunity that hillary has to speak directly to the voters on the issues. but we are concerned that donald trump may lie. he may throw misinformation out there. and hillary will have to spend all of her time trying to correct the record rather than talking about things she wants to accomplish. >> what do you expect the moderator to do? >> all we're asking is that the record be checked. if donald trump lies, which he has repeatedly done in the past, that be simply check. >> one question about experiencing. a dead even. i know you have said that the race will tighten. nobody thought it would be dead even at this moment. >> first of all, i take these public polls with a grain of salt. we're seeing something slightly different on our side. operationally, it doesn't matter. we should run like we're 20 points behind. this is the most important election in our history. certainly in our lifetime. we should be all in and we should try to win by the biggest
7:12 am
>> in our next hour we'll go inside donald trump's preparations with his senior communication adviser jason miller. that's ahead. a lot of talk about whether the debate moderator should also be a fact checker. the executive director of the commission on presidential debates doesn't want that. >> commission asks independent smart journalists to be the moderators and we let them decide how they are going to do this. i don't think it's a good idea to get the moderator in as serving as the britannica and i think it's important to facilitate and ask the candidates to correct each other as they see fit. >> cbs news political director john dickerson and bob schieffer on here on some of this morning's face-offs. bob, you were involved in the last campaign's presidential race, what about janet brown just said? is it the responsibility? i know you've written about this. the candidates to fact-check each other?
7:13 am
both candidates if one of them makes a glaring error to not let the other person have an opportunity to call them out. i think people want to know if that person knows the answer to the question. >> that is a good thing. it's called a rebuttal. >> if they don't, then i think the moderator has to step in and say, you know, for the record, folks, take it from there. maybe ask another question. >> there has been talk that a lot of voters have still not made up their minds, john, tonight. what are they looking for and to try to get those voters on their side? >> it depends. basically, donald trump has to show that he can be president. a debate is the formal thing in a campaign where a candidate looks a little bit like a president and there is a style and so, you know, for donald trump, it's basically to present something different than the candidate who shows up at his rallies. for hillary clinton, she has a bunch of things. she to remind people of the
7:14 am
heart, which is both for those undecided voters but it's also for her voters. what we know from political science about debates is that people become stronger partisans when they watch debates. in hillary clinton hasn't enthusiasm problem and that is different than vote intent. in other words, people may be ready to vote but may not be excited about it. if she has an enthusiasm problem, then a debate can make people think, oh, that is why i like her. >> you think this is more about shoring up your base than it is about reac >> it can be both. undecided may slosh around over the course of three debates but voting going on now. if both of your campaigns can grab voters that are newly energized by something happens in a debate and bank votes and get them in line so there is an organizational benefit. >> in fact, the campaigns believe that 40% of the final tally may be by early vote this year. to your point. that is why these debates are so critical. it's not that you'll remember going into the booth but people are voting now. >> well, norah, that is why when
7:15 am
much more. than somebody's position on the issues. voters want to take a measure of the person. does a person have the right stuff? does he have the dignity, the courage, how you react under pressure. i think the reason most people vote for a president is do they think this is someone that they would feel comfortable with in time of crisis. >> therefore, what does donald r >> it will be interesting to see. i mean, i have no idea what donald trump is going to do. and anybody that wants to predict what donald trump is going to do -- >> it's not a question of what might do but what does he have to do? in other words, how do you appear presidential? does he become somber and less attractive? >> i think he has to just leave the impression that he could handle the job.
7:16 am
>> well, but that's what i think is -- what people decide during these debates. >> do you think they are being judged differently, hillary clinton and donald trump? the clinton campaign says that she is being held to a much higher standard than he. >> no, i don't think so. i think they are both judged by exactly the same standards and we will see what happens. how they decide what the standards are that they are trying to meet. >> impressions will be made in the first 10 or 15 minutes? >> that's right. what is happening -- a lot of reporters will be wasting their time looking at twitter instead of the whole 90 minutes and they will develop a narrative and that narrative will start bouncing around and we saw that in the last campaign and that is not good. >> yeah. 90 minutes and no breaks. all right. thank you both. bob schieffer and john dickerson. watch tonight's debate on cbs. our live coverage begins at 9:00 eastern/8:00 central. the world is remember the extraordinary career and life of
7:17 am
complications at the age of 87. palmer's style and dominance on the golf course elevated the game to new heights. dana jacobson has more. >> reporter: beloved and transcendent is how arnold palmer is remembered today. his father a golfer and grounds keeper in latrobe, pennsylvania, introduced him to the game that he introduced to millions. voted the athlete of the decades in the 60s, palmer was always true to his father's words. don't think people how are -- show them! >> the line is perfect. he's got it! >> reporter: norah o'donnell known simply as "the king," arnold palmer captivated the sports world with his ferocious style of play and magnetism of a movie star. golf would never be the same when palmer burst on the scene in the late 1950s and became the face of the sport as tv turned
7:18 am
including four masters and ta tallying 62 pga tours wins and court by presidents and had a rabid fans dubbed palmer's army. his approach ratcheted up the drama of the game. >> and this fellow is still hunting birdies. >> in 2011 he spoke to to charlie rose. >> there is no game like it. you go out there and you tee it up on thfi >> yes. >> it's you. a golf ball and the golf course. and there you go. >> reporter: palmer was a pioneer in marketing for athletes and paved the way for future stars and even a drink named after him. he also received the presidential medal of freedom and congressional gold medal. the battles between palmer and jack nicklaus defined rivalry and though nicklaus came out
7:19 am
>> they really hurt, but when i reflect on it now and i look back and i say, it taught me something. it taught me how to live and how to be a better guy and not let it defeat, be the end of my life. and i'm thankful for that. >> in a statement last night, his long time friend and rival jack nicklaus said we were great competitors who loved competing against each other but we were always great friends along the way. arnold had my back and i had his. he was the king of our sport. and uls will be and bob hope may have put it best. he said in bringing golf to the masses, two things matter -- arnold palmer and the mulligan. >> there is a saying in golf that every governor played since him should give him 15% of their earnings because he made the game. >> everything thought michael jordan made marketing in sports.

7:24 am
for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling. relto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know.

i'm hall of famer jerry west and my life is basketball. but that doesn't stop my afib from leaving me at a higher risk of stroke. that'd be devastating. i took warfarin for over 15 years until i learned more about once-daily xarelto... a latest generation blood thinner. then i made the switch. xarelto? significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. it has similar effectiveness to warfarin. warfarin interferes with vitamin k lective targeting one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines.
7:49 am
unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know. xarelto. i asked my dentist if an electric toothbrush was going to clean better than a manual... he said sure, but don't just get any one. get one inspired by dentists, with a round brush head! go pro with oral-b. oral-b's rounded brush head cups your teeth to break up plaque and rotates to sweep it away. and oral-b crossaction delivers a clinically proven superior clean vs. sonicare diamondclean. my mouth feels super clean! oral-b. know you're getting a superior clean.

8:01 am
>> is this something they feel comfortable with in terms of crisis? >> what does donald trump have to do -- >> it will be interesting to see. i have no idea what donald trump is going to do. >> beloved and transcendent is how arnold palmer is being remembered. voted the athlete in the 1960s. his father said, don't tell people how good you are. show them. >> one unlucky photog with a surprise on this kick-off. tries to catch it. that was a mistake. hit in the face. >> i was trying to catch the ball, and i obviously missed it and caught the ball with my face instead of my hands. >> are you okay though? >> i'm okay. >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. a record 100 million people or more are expected to watch tonight's debate.

8:03 am
the key states have moved back to tossup. >> the question is why? >> the answer is enthusiasm on the part of her voters has gone down and so what happens in polling is it's not that people are switching over to donald trump or going back and forth. her voters are saying they are less likely to vote and less excited about her. >> she is losing rather than gaining? >> yeah, for the most part and one of the things i think she has to do tonight is rev up that base. you look at younger voters and parts of her constituency she tell you yeah, we are a little less excited. yeah, we are a little less likely to come out and that makes the poll numbers go down. >> she is at 264 and he is at 191 and the same he was several weeks ago. >> right. but for him, that is actually -- that is actually good. because she has come down and that, obviously, puts a lot of states now where he is in striking distance. and that wasn't the case -- >> she is only one state away from winning.
8:04 am
>> how do you look at it then? >> i look at it it's still a race. this is a race that can now go either way. because it wasn't the case before, right? she is one state away. here is the thing, norah. here is the thing. she doesn't necessarily win them all in a row. the states move in tandem but yes it's one state but states swing as a group if a big change happens. >> if the polls are right, 100 million of us will be watching. can't wait. thank you very much. >> yep. >> trust is a serious trouble spot for both of the candidates. a recently poll shows that 45% of voters think that donald trump is honest and trustworthy. only 36% see hillary clinton that way. on sunday, the candidate surrogates addressed the trust issue. >> i think donald trump always speaks straight from his mind and straight from his heart. i think he's the most bold, truth teller to run for president of the united states. >> but she has a challenge because donald trump is saying
8:05 am
>> hillary clinton's casual relationship with the truth is well known to americans. i'm sure we will see it on full display tomorrow night. i don't appreciate campaigns thinking it's the job of the media to be these virtual fact checkers. >> jason miller is senior communications adviser for the trump campaign. glad to have you at the table. >> good morning. >> what would be your definition of success tonight for mr. trump and what makes you look at him and say he is ready for this battle this evening? >> i think mr. trump will show he is the one to get our economy back on track and keep us safe and make sure we renegotiate the bad trade deals and he'll stop illegal immigration. he is able to convey that message the same things carrying him so well in the polls' seeing it with the crowds and the energy this week that will be success. >> those are talking points. i want to get to the nitty-gritty what you see in him tonight that make you you know he is on fire and ready to take
8:06 am
90 minutes, no break. >> i think we will see tonight mr. trump is ready to be commander in chief. this is a chance where voters have seen the commercials. a lot more from hillary's side as 250 million dollars dumped on mr. trump's ad. but they will see the candidates up there at the same time. on the stage together. i think they will see one candidate is ready to be commander in chief and a change agent and he is going to change our country and take us the right direction. that will be stacked up agt secretary clinton. >> what is on his list of things not to do? >> i would say -- you know, i think tonight, as long as he talks about his message and he is focused and talking about the contrast between the two, the vision he wants to go versus where hillary wants to go i think that is win. here is the thing for mr. trump coming into tonight. he is a candidates that he is not a politician. he hasn't been doing this 30 years and doesn't blow dry every single answer coming forward. >> to charlie's question, one of the things mr. trump has said
8:07 am
he punches back when challenged. has the campaign talked about how they may do that tonight? he is going to counterpunch? >> he'll be ready for tonight. never underestimate donald trump. >> he is preparing not by the way she might be preparing with briefing books, but looking for some psychological insight? >> well, the one thing that we have seen, this is more on the staff end. this is more as we discuss as a team in getting things together will do great in her first answer. we will see her first answer in each of these six sections, she'll hit a home run. they'll be programmed and polled and tested out. where secretary clinton runs into trouble is the second and third answers where it become more variables come and more interaction between the candidates and where she runs into trouble. >> people question whether he has a second and third answer, that he is not deep on terms of policy.
8:08 am
build a wall." >> mr. trump has laid out how to get the economy going and he has the policies and his website he has laid out very detailed plans and great piece in the "wall street journal" today on that point. and you'll see -- you'll see tremendous amount of substance. you'll see a remarkable clarity. and, again, when we start getting into the second and third questions -- after the openings for each candidate you have this back and forth, this ten-minute section and that is where hillary starts running into trouble is because you can't go and poll test all the way through. >> are they allowed to question each other? >> there will be some back and forth. but it's largely determined by the moderator. >> where is it that voters make up their mind, in the first 10 to 15 minutes? a lot of people watching on twitter. are you concerned about that in no 90-minute break and you can't go to a break and say here is what you want to do here and there. no worries or concerns about that? >> mr. trump is going to come out and he'll talk about his vision.
8:09 am
he is going to be the same person wherever you see him and whatever he is talking about. that is what is so great about going into the debate is that why you're seeing the energy the crowds and poll numbers reflecting those great numbers that we have seen from other networks this morning. >> have you all had mock debates with him? >> not with a stand-in with hillary clinton because mr. trump is focused on what he wants to talk about in this debate and communicate to the american people. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> good to see you. >> a reminder. have you heard? there is a debate gh our coverage begins live 9:00 eastern/8:00 central. the mayor of charlotte has lifted the city's overnight curfew put into place after violent protests erupted after the shooting of an african-american man by police. hundreds of protesters marched in charlotte last night. 11 people were detain, through there were no reports of violence. over the weekend, police released dash and body camera

moment on the campaign trail. take a look at this. a crowd of people in orlando recently turned their backs to hillary clinton. this was not a snub. they were trying to snap a selfie with her. some people wondered whether hillary clinton had invited the crowd to take the selfie all at once. that would certainly make more sense that somebody said, let's all do it at the same time because it's unusual you see everybody turn their backs at the same time. >> she is clearly enjoying the moment. >> that is the way to make something go viral. everyone, take a selfie and share it. been retweeted more than 16,000 times. national security is a featured topic at tonight's first presidential debate. a new bloomberg national poll finds 24% of americans believe the threat from terrorism and isis is the most important issue facing the country. fox news and host and anchor bill o'reilly takes on one of the country's most pivotal

about her. she comes off as an ice queen. again, this is a lot of personality involved with this election. a lot of personality. >> you said that that was a condescending comment but some people would say some of the things donald trump has been very condescending to a wide variety of people. do you think that matters? >> yes. he has been called racist and misogynist. i think two candidates have heavy deficits going into this debate. >> it's called killing the the atomic bomb. >> when i started researching this book, martin duguard did the heavy researching. i didn't know eisenhower didn't want to drop the bomb. he told truman, no, don't do it. i won't tell you why because i want you to read the book. i will tell you why he didn't want to drop the bomb he wanted the glory of the invasion but it would have killed 4 to 5 million people. truman basically was there. >> you say he makes a decision,
8:37 am
>> he didn't really know because fdr, franklin roosevelt, who dies in georgia with his mistress in the room. another fascinating story. he never even talked to truman! he thought truman was a clerk! all right? truman never got briefed. he didn't know anything. then eleanor calls him to the white house and says he is dead. truman says is there anything i can do for you, mrs. roosevelt? she said, is there anything i can do for you? you're in trouble now. truman knew nothing. he gets all of this stuff. they're researching the bomb. he has to get up to speed on what it is. he had no idea. >> it's interesting. the long lens of history on that decision, interesting. you have carter and both bush's writing letters supporting the decision. >> i asked all five living presidents to write me a personal letter whether they would have supported truman to drop the bomb. three didn't. the two bushes and carter. all three said yes. this is speculation. i don't think he would have dropped the bomb. clinton didn't because he didn't want to get into a controversy
8:38 am
but i think clinton would have dropped it. >> some of your critics say that killing series, it's time for the killing to stop, o'reilly? >> yeah. we only sell 2 to 3 million books each time. yeah, i think some of the critics may be a little jealous, gayle, but that's just me. >> thank you. >> three more coming. >> killing the rising sun is on sale now. you can watch tonight's debate right here on cbs. central, 6:00 pacific. >> he is an original member of hollywood's famous brat pack. i wonder if he is sick of that term? brat pack. he is on a new series. rob lowe is playing a military doctor on "code black." he's in our toyota green room. rob lowe as we've never seen him
