donald trump a front-runner. . he joins us now. thank you for joining us again this morning. you're the front-runner in four states today. you're taking a lot of hits as well. our new poll shows you falling off your peak. both ted cruz and marco rubio beating you in head to head matchups. are you worried this pile-on is drawing some blood. >> no, i think we're doing very well and we're leading in michigan and we're leading in mississippi and nationally we're leading as i think you see the cnn poll had us at 49% to 15%. but certainly they're spending tens of millions on fighting me, the establishment and, you know, they would rather not see me in there, obviously. you had failed people mitt romney talking, he had one of the worst campaigns i've ever witnessed in my life and he's out there now speaking as negatively as he can. you know, where was that energy when he was fighting obama? he disappeared. he was a terrible candidate so i guess, you know, i would imagine
something like that could have an impact but we have a lot of loyal people that want to see america be great again. >> nobody would call michael bloomberg a failure. and here's what he said yesterday. he's not getting in because he's worried it might help you and went on to say this -- "trump has run the most divisive and demagogic presidential campaign i can remember, preying on people's prejudices and fears. abraham lincoln, the father of the republican party, appealed to our better angels. trump appeals to our worst impulses," that's from someone who's been pretty friendly to you and he says he won't get in to help make sure you don't win. >> well, look, you know, i mean he used to be a friend of mine. when he had a problem with ferry point, which was a failed project in new york he called on me to solve it and i did. i made it successful and it was under construction for 20 years and nobody knew what to do. he used to be a friend of mine. i guess he disagrees with what i'm saying but a lot of people agree. we have to be vigilant, we have to be smart, we have to strengthen our military and
we have to strengthen our borders. we have to get rid of obamacare and replace it with something good, george and, you know, i mean the polls i'm looking at, i don't know about the ones you have but the ones i'm looking at, i'm way up in michigan and i'm way up in mississippi which are going today and i'm doing well in idaho. i love their potatoes and i'm doing well in idaho and doing well in hawaii, so i just don't know what to tell you. >> meantime, the number of prominent people comparing you to adolf hitler is actually growing by the day. you saw over the weekend louis c.k. and also glenn beck, he called you a dangerous man and yesterday the mexican president said you're using the same kind of language that ushered in hitler and mussolini. i can't remember that kind of comparison being used against any other presidential candidate. does it suggest to you, you should tone down your rhetoric and tactics? >> well, maybe so but i mean, look, i have a tremendous following. we want to make america great again. it's a strong following. i don't know about the hitler comparison. i hadn't heard that but it's a terrible comparison. i'm not happy about that certainly.
i don't want that comparison but, you know, we have to be strong and we have to be vigilant and people agree with that and we don't want to lose our jobs to china and we don't want to lose our jobs to mexico and japan and all of these countries that are taking our jobs away from us like we're children. we don't know what we're doing. we have leaders that don't know what they're doing. we're losing so much in this country and we're losing -- we're losing the spirit and we just can't do it so i have to be -- i have to be strong and, again, i have a group of -- i have a tremendous following. you know, the republican, the biggest story in politics is how many people are going to the primaries on the republican side, it's a record number. they're up 55%, 60%. some are up as much as 100%. and that hasn't happened ever. they say it's never happened. and the democrats are down 35% so, you know, something positive is happening. >> we'll wait to see what happens tonight, thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you very much. zblmpx also now to another big
headline. the major verdict in the erin andrews trial. the sportscaster leaving the courtroom with a huge win. a jury awarding her $55 million over the secret nude video a stalker recorded at a hotel. abc's eva pilgrim has the very latest for us from nashville this morning. good morning, eva. >> reporter: amy, after two weeks of an emotional trial, centered around that naked video of erin andrews, it took the jury about six hours to make a decision. and one juror telling abc news, they wanted this verdict to send a message. >> 55 million, correct? >> yes, sir. >> reporter: erin andrews overcome with emotion as the judge read the verdict. the jury deciding the nashville marriott shares the blame for that secretly recorded naked video seen by more than 17 million people. erin andrews later tweeting this statement. i've been honored by all the support from victims around the world. their outreach has helped me be able to stand up and hold accountable those whose job it is to protect everyone's safety. >> it's ongoing and it's going to be ongoing for the rest of her life.
>> reporter: andrews claimed the hotel made it easy for her stalker, michael barrett to get a room next door to hers and through a peephole that he altered use his cell phone to shoot video of her getting out of the shower. the hotel claims he was a criminal who tricked them into gaining access and one juror telling abc news said the only debate for the group was how much to pay her. the $55 million payout will be split almost in half with barrett taking 51% of the fault. the hotel's management company and owner, 49%. >> an amount that high sends a pretty strong message. >> the hotel industry we just felt like they need to get the message that this is somebody's privacy. it's their personal life and you got to take that seriously. >> reporter: the hotel's lawyers disappointed with the outcome saying they hope to eventually talk to the jurors before deciding if they will appeal. >> keep in mind this had never happened before and hadn't happened since. there are all kinds of measures that were undertaken after this was discovered, what mr. barrett had done.
>> reporter: the hotel's lawyer say that nashville marriott has installed peephole covers on all of the rooms' doors to make sure this never happens again. amy. >> eva pilgrim, thanks so much. and joining us now abc news chief legal analyst, dan abrams. and dan, six hours. were you surprised by such a quick and large verdict? >> i was stunned by the speed. this was a long jury instruction with a lot of complicated legal questions. but let's be clear. this was a huge win for erin andrews. not just in terms of the number, but in terms of the way the verdict came down. meaning the concern for erin andrews was too much of this verdict will be for barrett, the guy who actually filmed it. why is that a problem? he's got no money so the real question was how much is going to be allocated to marriott so by doing this verdict at 51% responsibility for barrett, he was clearly the guy who actually did it, but then a whole 49% for marriott, that's about as good a verdict as she could get in terms of the split.
because it means not only do you have this big $55 million verdict, but you have this $26 million verdict against marriott. so all in all a really big win for erin andrews. >> do you think that the amount will hold, though, under appeal? >> well, the first question is going to be for the judge. the judge is going to review this verdict first and, if the judge thinks that it's excessive, the judge could actually be involved in reducing it first of all even before an appeal but i think that there's very likely that this verdict will stand largely even if it's reduced a bit. >> all right, dan abrams, we appreciate it. thanks so much. and now to that bombshell announcement rocking the tennis world, maria sharapova, one of the sport's biggest stars calling a press conference admitting she failed a drug test. abc's ryan smith is here with the latest on that. good morning to you, ryan. >> reporter: good morning, amy. so many thought she was going to announce her retirement but tennis star maria sharapova stunned the world with that shocking announcement saying she takes full responsibility for the failed test and that a rule change tripped her up.
this morning, maria sharapova, the world's highest paid female athlete and tennis star coming clean. admitting to a failed drug test at this year's australian open. >> i made a huge mistake. >> reporter: testing positive for the drug meldonium used to treat heart ailments but some studies suggest it may boost endurance in some who take it banned by the world anti-doping agency this year. >> i had been legally taking it for the past ten years. meldonium became a prohibited substance which i had not known. >> reporter: sharapova admitting she received an e-mail from tennis officials about banned substances but -- >> i did not look at that list. >> reporter: the 28-year-old, one of tennis' best, winning wimbledon at 17, number one in the world by 18, five grand slam titles in her career. recently beset by injuries, sidelined since that australian open. but off the court, a sponsor's dream. the fashion icon and businesswoman making a whopping 30 million pitching products for
the likes of nike, avon, tiffany's and porsche hauling in more money than world number one serena williams, the news rocking the tennis world. former tennis star jennifer capriati lashing out at the star saying, "i didn't have the high-priced team for me to cheat." and martina navratilova says, "i hope this gets cleared up as it seems to be an honest mistake." sharapova now waiting thnext steps from the international tennis federation making one thing clear -- >> i know that with this i face consequences and i don't want to end my career this way. and i really hope that i will be given another chance to play this game. >> reporter: sharapova's lawyer telling us that, while players can be suspended for as long as four years for a failed test, players found to unintentionally fail tests without fault can get as little as no penalty. now, she will be provisionally suspended sunday and already
nike and watch brand tag heuer cutting ties with the star. >> while the investigation continues. >> right. >> it is refreshing to have someone openly admit that. >> take that responsibility. >> all right, thank you, george. nfl superstar peyton manning made it official yesterday. announcing his retirement and ending his record-breaking career. the broncos quarterback and two-time super bowl champ known as the sheriff got emotional when he announced his decision. >> today, i retire from pro football. thank you to the indianapolis colts organization and all of the fans across this country, to all of my denver teammates, thank you for what you've done for this old quarterback and, of course, my gratitude to the broncos fans everywhere. i revere football. i love the game. so you don't have to wonder if i'll miss it, absolutely, absolutely i will. and i look back on my nfl career, i'll know without a doubt that i gave everything i had to help my teams walk away with a win.

the day. >> reporter: gawker is zeroing in on those inconsistencies saying terry bollea doesn't always tell the truth. particularly when he is in character as hulk hogan. they'll kompbt to cross examine him this morning. george and amy. >> okay, thanks very much. now to a big headline about something we've all probably done, i've definitely done getting distracted by our phones while we walk. well, there is a new study out revealing just how dangerous that actually is. abc's t.j. holmes is here with more on that. good morning, t.j. >> reporter: good morning, robach. folks can't even walk and chew gum but they think they can walk and text, right. but what's the worst that can happen? the mentality walking, maybe i run into somebody or a light pole, so it's rude and maybe ridiculous, but increasingly we're getting more evidence that it's actually dangerous, even deadly. we know the dangers of texting while driving, this morning, a new warning. a study finds the number of pedestrians killed in traffic accidents last year increased 10% from the year before and
from 2009 to 2014, a nearly 20% increase. one possible reason for the spike, more people walking while distracted on their cell phones. something we've all likely done at some point. like this guy, he barely flinches as a car turns inches in front of him and a bear on the loose and this man, almost walked right into him. >> it was very, very terrifying. >> reporter: and who can forget michael scott from "the office" texted himself right into that koi pond. we hit the streets to see it ourselves. were you texting while walking? >> reading an e-mail. >> reporter: we caught one after another after another. people texting or talking on their phones while crossing a busy new york city street. we caught you looking down. fancy webb was texting while carrying her 3-month-old daughter when she fell. >> right when i was pressing send i stepped off the curb and
twisted both of my ankles. >> reporter: her daughter wasn't hurt but she was on crutches for weeks. >> ever since then i have not texted and walked. >> reporter: and watch what happens on the nat geo show called "crowd control." distracted texters didn't even notice this gorilla. >> you didn't see a gorilla on the street. >> i was on my phone. >> a lot of folks are looking down. they were looking for music in their ipod and a lot of people actually looking for directions and whatnot but, guys, i caught a lady holding hands with her child crossing the street and looking down. and when i pointed that out to her she was flat-out embarrassed and begged us not to put her on television. so, again, you can look silly doing it but this can be downright dangerous and there's something to these numbers. they're trying to figure it out. >> when you look at the streets, even if someone isn't looking at their phone, it's in their hands and the possibility is right there. >> so many think i can do better. i know how to multitask. >> what did we do before we had them? it's like an appendage. >> we observed and lived our lives. >> we all can do better.
>> we can do better. >> we will do better. coming up here, o.j. simpson trial back in the headlines with that new miniseries. we're going to hear from one of the jurors calling the show a total work of fiction. also coming up, a major medical breakthrough. the first woman ever to get a uterus transplant in the u.s. she's now speaking out and how this groundbreaking surgery could change so many lives. better things than for rheumatoid arthritis. before you and your rheumatologist

uterine transplant in the united states and abc's linsey davis has that story. >> reporter: on monday, the cleveland clinic described how a team of 70 top experts completed the first ever uterus transplant in the u.s. last month giving new hope to women unable to carry a child. >> these women are born with normal ovaries that produce healthy eggs. the problem is that there is nowhere for these eggs to go. >> reporter: the patient is 26-year-old lindsey. she was the first of ten scheduled to undergo this. >> i was 16 and was told i would never have children and here we are today at the beginning of that journey. >> reporter: here's how it works. a woman born without a uterus or nonfunctioning uterus gets a healthy uterus from a deceased donor implanted. after a year fertilized eggs are transferred one by one until the woman becomes pregnant. as for lindsey she still has a year of anti-rejeekz medication
ahead of her before finding out if she can get pregnant. her doctors remain confident but she says she has more than just them to thank. >> i would like to take a moment to express the immense gratitude i feel towards my donor's family. they have provided me with a gift that i will never be able to repay and i am beyond thankful for them. >> reporter: for "good morning america," linsey davis, abc news, new york.

functioning ovaries but can be biological parents but cannot carry. >> they have to survive for a year taking immunotherapy and drugs and will there be any different ivf from a regular woman than one who had a transplant 13 a couple big differences. when she undergoes ivf she will only be getting one embryo, no twins, she will undergo a planned scheduled elective cesarean section. this is'a uterus we're going to test in labor and of course she will have to take strong anti-rejection medication. there is date father on moms and babies born to transplant patients and they do pretty well but that's not an insignificant hurdle. >> had has happened in sweden. doctors have already successfully transplanted a uterus there. but surrogacy isn't legal in that country and our country given the fact that a woman can use her eggs and transplant them in another woman, what do you have to say to people who question this practice because
we have that option? >> right, and the opponents here or the critics will say, no question, uterine surrogacy is cheaper, easier and safer, but it really speaks to the powerful biologic, emotional, psych logic drive that women have to carry their own children. it's not the only path to parenthood but have to remember the context, 1967 the world's first heart transplant, almost 50 years later this is a historic event in women's health. >> you just gave me chills. all right, dr. ashton, thanks so much. jenn will take your questions throughout the morning. tweet her @drjashton as i search for the cam are and go to "gma's" facebook page as well. let's head upstairs to lara and michael. >> thank you very much. am, here's what's coming up on our "gma morning menu." the moment we've been waiting for, our huge "dancing with the stars" party is about to begin. and in just a moment we'll revealing the entire cast but we've already told you two of the celebrities. let me show you, ginger zee and

it was strange having to throw myself back into the frame of mind. the way i do things is pull from my own personal experience and sometimes even turn myself into what i'm portraying so i can pull from my life and step into that person's shoes by being able to relate. the first time mom to 14-year-old kaia tweeted over the weekend a picture of her family at the beach gushing, the loves of my life. looking back she says she was terrified to speak out. but the love and support she received these past few months has been overwhelming. i was floored. i feel much more exposed, yes, but in a great way. she says she was dumbfounded when certain critics argued postpartum depression isn't a disease admitting it was one of the scariest most debilitating experiences of her life and she's thrilled and relieved it's behind her now. >> i'm so glad she's doing okay. >> and spreading the word and helping other people. coming up, the "dancing with the stars" cast going heado-head competing live right here on "gma." ♪ when i'm holder all this
