what does this do to ted cruz? >> i think it's a battle for sort of a dwindling carson vote. i think we have seen koors becarson city number one in iowa and now slip to maybe three and maybe four. i think the percentage he is sitting on, both trump and cruzz look at that like a dog salivating over a good, meaty bone. they want the people coming off carson on to the ballot and that is why the focus on evangelicaca. i think what we saw yesterday between the visits to the liberty university and jerry falwell the nice things he said about donald trump to the sarah palin announcement was a real targeted effort to seekk the evangelicals without having to talk the talk, he is walking the walk. >> is there a downside for him in sarah palin endorsing him? >> not in iowa. i think everyone else in the country people are scratching their heads when they wake up saying what is he thinking? i think he has made a bet if he

7:10 am
please tell them that is really not the case. >> reporter: the clinton campaign shot back in a statement saying, senator sanders is trying to make a case on elect ability based on meaningless polls. and they said sanders is gainini because republican groups are talking him up, tweeting about run against him than against clinton. naturally, ted cruz did say last night, he was asked about this, he would prefer to go up against sanders this clinton because he thinks a socialist would be easiest to beat. clinton, you'll recall, won in new hampshire in 2008 but wasn't going up against an opponent next door back then. sanders is from neighboring vermont and historically candidates from bordering states almost always win in new hampshire. >> thank you, nancy. breaking news. a terror attack on a university in pakistan. at least 20 people are dead.

it is wednesday, january 20th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there is more real news ahead, including a plan to revolutionize the collegege admissions process. but first, here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> sarah palin's endorsement takes more from ted cruz than it adds to donald trump. >> are you ready to stump for trump? >> the battle for the carson vote. trump and cruz look at that like a dog salivating over a bone. >> campaigns like to say they don't pay much attention to the polls, but sanders was celebrating those numbers at his campaign events. >> a group of armed men stormed the university attacking students and staff members in

>> governor snyder said no one in flint will go without clean water. all of these cases will be gone by midday. >> it's a piece of energy and it has a lot of real estate to travel over, a lot of things it will encounter as it pushes to the east. >> george clooney and whoopi goldberg echo t sentiments that thete is a lack of recognition on one of hollywood's biggest nights. >> once you got your car, you did a lot of parking. >> you didi did a`lot of parking, what do you mean? >> it gave you freedom to go somewhere with someone that you cared about to be on your own. >> oh. >> am i right or wrong? >> you're wrong. >> okay. >> i was. >> i was precocious. >> this morning's "eye opener" at 8:00 is presented by liberty mutual insurance. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. the inauguration of the next
7:55 am
year from today. republican hopeful d dald trump said if he wins the white house, there will be a place for sarah palin in his administration. the former vice presidential nominee will campaign with trump today in iowa and oklahoma. her endorsement of the billionaire is seen as a letdown for ted cruz. he is battling with trump for the anti-establishment vote. in iowa tuesday palin slammed the republican elite for not supporting trump. >> they're attacking their own front-runner. now, would the dnc ever come after their front-runner and her supporters? no, because they don't eat their own. they can't afford to see the status quo go, otherwiwe they won't be available to be slurping off the gravy train that's been feeding them all these years. now they're concerned about this ideological purity? give me a break.
7:56 am
wingin', bitter clinging, gunslingers. tell us that we're not red enough? yeah, coming from the establishment, right. >> now, you may remember that ted cruz won a senate seat in 2012 with sarah palin's support. he says he will always be a fan of hers no matter who she endorses. campaigning in new hampshire, cruz kept pushing his anti-establishment message. >> conservatives are uniting behind our campaign and we will see, like the empire strikes back, the establishment wilil strike back because they don't want an end to the cronyism and the gravy train from washington. >> a recent poll found that 52% of likely republican voters in iowa prefer an anti-establishment candidate and another poll in iowa found that 57% feel betrayed by republican party politicians. a new poll of democrats is adding to the drama in the democratic race. it shows bernie sanders with a commanding lead over hillary clinton in new hampshire. the senator from neighboring vermont is ahead by nearly 30 points.
7:57 am
in iowa tuesday sanders said that voter turnout w ws elections and his campaign will be better able to deliver against republicans. >> any objective look at our campaign and the energy and the excitement that it is generating withthoung people and with working people, compare that to secretary clinton's campaign. will come to the conclusion that if our goal is to have a large voter turnout, we arehe campaign that can do that. >> sanders will campaign thursday in new hampshire. clinton will spend jt one day there this week and four in iowa. a new repept coming out this morning could fundamentally change the college admission process. administrators from top colleges and universities are launching the document can the turn-- "turning the tide." frank bruni looks at the growing concern in his new article and
7:58 am
you go is not who you'll be." we're pleased to have frank bruni back in studio 57. welcome. thanks. >> this has been an issue you've written about before. >> yeah. >> so what's going to change in the admissions process from this report? >> well, the report can't command change, but the report is signed off on, endorsed by so many people at top universities that it clearly indicates a desire and an intention to do things differently. i think what's going to happen is you're going to see in bits and pieces over the coming years the admissions process becece less slaveo the metrics that have been used so far. already you have a lot of schools saying s.a.t., a.c.t. is wptional. schos saying they're not going to be as impressed with a huge load of a.p. courses. they're trying to get kids away from script following during high school and encourage more genuine passions in them and figure out a way to judge them by the way they commit to these passions. >> this is a really big deal, i think, because you said it could
7:59 am
padding but also levels the playing field for kids that don't get the opportunity to get the tutors and they'll pay attention to other things like what, frank? >> pay attention to things like civic engagement. one of the things this report goes into at great length is it's telling admissions officers let's stop being impressed simply by the name of a charitable organization the kid has worked for. let's find a way through essays and letters of recommendation to figure out whether that charity work was genuine, heartfelt and sustained or just checking off another box on this is what they want to see in cambridge. >> specifically the report addresses academic pressure and mental health issues. it says many middle and upper income communities, rates of depression, delinquency, substance abuse and anxiety appear to be considerably higher. why is that? >> kids feel they have to nail things in a certain way. as admissions rates have dropped, they're competing
8:00 am
getting the message, partly from the admissions process but also partly from their parents, they're getting the message if they don't hit a certain marker, get into aertain kindf school, they have failed in life and forevermore will be behind the eight ball. that is so destructive. it's not only that we see those high rates of mental illness of kids in high school but every university is reporting records numbers of kids coming in for treatment for mental health services on campus and that's a bigger and bigger problem. >> but the bottom line is how do you look and make sure thaha yoyore not leaving behehd some really terrific kids who don't have the privilege that other kids have. >> which is key. the context for this is we're living in a country with yawning income inequality and higher education is asking, very appropriately more than ever, what's our part in social mobility, how do we remedy that. one of the reasons you're seeing schools step away from standardized tests is there's a lot of research that what standardized tests judge more than anything else is family backgrounds incomes. so they're trying to say what
8:01 am
potential and don't just reflect privivege. >> s spay attention to a kid who maybe has to stay home and help the family or has a part-time job and has to help the family and can't be engaged in community service. >> and recognize the character in that kid. and that character will be his key, instead of a load of a.p. courses. >> so how realistic is this, frank, that you think this will actually happen? >>,i don't think we'll see an overwhelming sea change in one admission cycle. but when you look at the number of people that have signed off on this, when you look at the news conference today someone from yale will be there, someone from m.i.t., the university of michigan, you are clearly seeing a signal admissions offices will make some changes. i think over the next five years, big chchges. >> you also write ababt a survey of middle and high school students about what they thought was important. >> the author of this report was the person that did this research. they asked kids what matters most, individual achievement,
8:02 am
they were shocked to find only 22% said c criageing for others. and they said that's enclosurely -- we've got to getting -- >> did it have anything to do with background? >> i don't know if they broke it down that way. what they're asking in this new report is to what extent does the college admissions process bring about those values and exacerbate the problem of an excessive focus onndividual achievement and where do i rate and what's my status in society. >> very interesting. >> thank you, frank. always good to see you. vice president joe biden lost his son, beau, to cancer and now he's leading the mission to come up with a cure. our dr. david agus will reveal
