3:04 am
between marquez farook and these four terrorists? >> i've heard the same reports. it would be irresponsible of us to not look into any potential connections. >> reporter: marquez's family saying it's shocked. that is enrique marquez's mother saying how distraught she is. she hasn't heard from her son. >> that's because he's still being questioned by the fbi as an undisclosed location. authorities tell us he is not under arrest. the fbi telling us for the first time it's possible that the terrorist couple came to this lake, maybe dumping evidence in this water after that shooting rampage but before that chase and shoot-out in which they were killed. matt gutman, abc news, san bernardino. >> thank you so much. well, a new worry in the fight against isis is the possibility of counterfeit passports being used to enter the u.s. authorities say as isis was sweeping through syrian cities last week, it seized passport printing machines used by major countries around the world. a homeland security bulletin sent to law enforcement last week shows examples of suspect passports almost impossible to detect. >> if isis has been able to be acquire legitimate passports or machines that create legitimate

passports, this would represent a major security risk to the united states. several fraudulent passports have been discovered in europe. authorities say one of the paris suicide bombers used a forged passport to come into europe as a refugee. geneva, switzerland, is on high alert this morning. swiss police fanned out across the city yesterday looking for at least four men. sources tell abc news, a tip from the cia said a terror attack was planned. today's talks in geneva on syria between u.s. and russian officials will be held, but at a different location. and now to presidential politics. donald trump gets back on the campaign trail today with a rally in des moines, iowa. despite the uproar over his plan to ban muslims from entering the u.s., he's fly ing high in the polls. the newest one shows him up to 35%. ted cruz a distant second with 16%, ben carson now third with 13%. it's "your voice, your vote." abc's tom llamas covering the trump campaign.
3:06 am
>> reporter: donald trump may be taking heat, but with republican primary voters, he's on the rise. that new national poll shows him leading his closest rival by nearly 20 points, and some of that polling done after his controversial proposed ban of muslims coming into the u.s. israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu criticizing the muslim ban and trump tweeting he's now postponing his trip to israel, saying he'll go "after i become president of the u.s." >> i didn't want to put him under pressure, number one. i also did it because i'm in the midst of a very powerful campaign that's going very well. >> reporter: but trump could be taking a business hit. his proposed ban leading a developer in dubai to take down a trump billboard advertising a golf course that trump is working on. >> if i lose some businesses overseas, it doesn't have any impact on me whatsoever. what i'm doing right now, bill,
3:07 am
is far more important than any single business that i own. >> reporter: there's a new poll out on trump's plan to ban muslims from coming into the u.s. that poll shows that more republicans support the trump plan than oppose it. tom llamas, abc news, new york. this really is the story that keeps on giving, isn't it? the latest poll i saw had 42% of republican voter. not primary voters, just overall voters supporting the ban on muslims coming into america. >> "the wall street journal" says 57% of people don't agree with trump's plan to ban all muslims. >> the untold story in the poll we saw just before tom's report is that bush is on 3%. so he's gone down. he spent a lot of money recently on television adverts. this super pac behind him i was reading in "the new york times" today has spent five times as much money on him as the next super pac has spent on the next biggest candidate. and bush was at 5 or 6% before they started spending that money, and they've blown all that money and he's gone down. >> because he had a big war

chest for money and we'll have to see how it all unfolds. >> these polls come out and there are so many little stories and narratives. >> it's hard to tell by the numbers. wait till new hampshire and iowa. so much changes once you get down there. investigators in suburban boston are focusing on operator error as the cause of a runaway commuter train on thursday morning. the six-car train with about 50 passengers on board left a transit station without a driver and went through four stations without stopping. that driver actually stepped off the train to investigate a signal issue. he's now on administrative leave. >> a fascinating story. let's turn to sports. the nfl's week 14 has started with a second -- got the wrong camera, still learning -- with a second team clinching a playoff berth. and that's a good start for another episode of "sports with reena." >> i like how you call it an episode. it's very good.

>> reporter: authorities say, as isis swept through major syrian cities last year, it was able to seize government passport printing machines of a kind used by major governments around the world. a homeland security investigations bulletin sent to law enforcement in the last week and obtained by abc news showed examples of suspect passports and said isis may have boxes full of blank passports. the bulletin warned that "individuals from syria with passports issued in these isis control odd cities or who had passport blanks, may have traveled to the u.s." >> the intelligence community is concerned that they have the ability -- the capability -- to manufacture fraudulent passports, which is a concern in any setting. >> reporter: several of the fraudulent passports have already been discovered in europe. most notably, in the paris attacks, when authorities said one of the suicide bombers used this forged syrian passport to

inspector. there's a chilling link between last month's paris attacks and the u.s. a serbian arms factory says one of the guns linked to the islamic extremists was exported to an online dealer in florida. it's not known how the gun made its way back to europe. meanwhile, connecticut is acting on president obama's suggestion on gun control. the governor will block the sale of firearms to anyone on the federal no fly list. the u.s. said it rejected a similar ban last week. connecticut already has some of the nation's strictest gun control laws after the sandy hook school shootings three years ago. so donald trump is seeing his support surging again despite the uproar over his plan to close off the u.s. to muslims from overseas, the newest one shows him up 13 points since october. he's up to 35%. ted cruz is second with 16%, ben carson now third with 13. bush there you can see trailing

story misleading. the national newspaper in the united arab emirates reported the billionaire's name has been removed from developments. his billboards gone. he canceled a visit to israel to meet with prime minister benjamin netanyahu who spoke out against him. trump would only say he called off his trip to the middle east for a lot of different reasons and plans to reschedule with netanyahu after he becomes president. >> kenneth, thank you so much. you can add hover boards to the list of items now banned from the most commercial places. the popularized motor scooters are not allowed on flights in checked in or carry-on luggage. the concern is still the lithium batteries can catch fire. if you haven't already bought your holiday travel plane ticket, do not do it today. the airline industry analysts of the industry say tickets bought on fridays are generally about 13% higher than those purchased on sundays. they recommend shopping on saturdays and sundays, while
