good morning, america. donald trump shakes things up. brand-new polls from key battleground states could spell trouble for hillary clinton as trump closes in on a running mate. >> you'll be calling up mike pence. i don't know whether he's going to be your governor or vice president, who the hell knows. >> clinton celebrates bernie sanders' big endorsement. the former rivals team up to take down trump. >> i intend to do everything i can to make certain she will be the next president of the united states. >> today bernie joins us live. a massive manhunt right now after authorities uncover a new plot to kill police officers. suspects in baton rouge stealing guns, three are in custody, another is on the run, as the president tries to bring the country together with a powerful speech in dallas. the pokemon craze.
7:01 am
as millions hunt for the virtual creatures congress now demanding answers. is the addictive game doing enough to protect your privacy? and fireworks at the all-star game. >> this is what it's all about right here. >> the emotional moments as one of baseball's best waves good-bye. ♪ my power's turned up >> and the performance that brought the entire stadium to its feet. ♪ how much do we love, amy, rachel platten? >> that song is everything. >> uh-huh, and it was last night as i said she brought that crowd that all-star crowd to its feet. >> it was very emotional last night and emotional for many reasons. the american league won the game, but one reason it was emotional, it was the last time we're going to see one of the greats play in an all-star game,
7:02 am
that's david ortiz, aka big papi. >> what a year he is having. >> he's beloved. >> uh-huh. we're going to start out with the race for the white house and this morning's brand-new polls, donald trump appears to make a big move in florida, he's right there with hillary clinton in pennsylvania and ohio too. building momentum in the key states ahead of next week's convention. abc's tom llamas has more. we have more from indiana where he auditioned governor mike pence, there he is last night, good morning, tom. >> reporter: george, good morning to you. trump wakes up to those encouraging poll numbers in what many consider the most important battleground states, this, as the trump vp show rolls right into indiana. >> wow. >> reporter: this morning, donald trump moving closer and closer to picking his running mate. sources say trump is likely to appear with his pick as early as friday. >> i often joke you'll be calling up mike pence. i don't know whether he's going to be your governor or your vice president, who the hell knows. >> reporter: trump teasing supporters by appearing on the
7:03 am
trail with those on his short list, like governor chris christie and newt gingrich. >> it's a little bit like "the apprentice." you'll find out sooner or later who the last one standing is. >> reporter: overnight, indiana governor mike pence getting his shot on stage. >> donald trump gets it. >> reporter: governor pence and trump have become fast friends even though pence has rejected some of trump's ideas. governor pence, when he called a temporarily ban on muslims you said it was offensive. do you still feel that way? >> i've taken issue were with our candidates from time to time. but i'm supporting donald trump. >> reporter: how do you share that ticket if you have a fundamental disagreement with him on the muslim ban? >> i've been a governor for 3 1/2 years. i haven't agreed with every one of my republican or democratic colleagues on every issue. >> reporter: and as trump beats the drum against hillary -- >> we have crooked hillary clinton as crooked as you get. >> reporter: -- he has a new fight with an 83-year-old. supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg. justice ginsburg taking on trump
7:04 am
telling cnn, "he is a faker of he has no consistency about him. he says whatever comes into his head at the moment. he really as an ego." trump firing back calling it a disgrace. and telling "the times," it's highly inappropriate that a united states supreme court judge gets involved in a campaign. trump says ginsburg gets off the court as soon as possible. and trump getting even more critical this morning sending out this tweet, here it is, he writes, justice ginsburg of the u.s. supreme court has embarrassed all by making very dumb political statements about me. her mind is shot, resign. so, robin, this fight not going anywhere fast. robin. >> doesn't seem to. all right, tom. thank you. now to the democrats. bernie sanders making it official, endorsing hillary clinton after a long and bitter primary battle. the question now, whether his supporters especially his younger ones will follow suit. abc's cecilia vega is in chicago
7:05 am
with much more on all this. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. hillary clinton will be campaigning here in this state later today at the site of a famous abraham lincoln speech and she is now armed with the support of that new ally. they are the words hillary clinton and so many democrats were waiting to hear. >> i have come here to make it as clear as possible as to why i am endorsing hillary clinton. >> reporter: more than a month after she became their party's presumptive nominee, bernie sanders finally endorsing and it even came with a hug. her thank you picked up by the microphone. >> thank you so much, bernie. it means the world to me. >> reporter: political enemies turned allies. >> i intend to do everything i can to make certain she will be the next president of the united states. >> reporter: donald trump highlighting that past bad blood in this new video.
7:06 am
>> i don't think you are qualified if you are supported virtually every disastrous trade agreement. >> reporter: clinton now trying to win over the millions who backed her former foe. >> you will always have a seat at the table when i am in the white house. >> reporter: but some on team sanders walking out in protest as clinton spoke. not yet ready to extinguish the bern. is there anything hillary clinton can say that would win you over right now? >> hillary can't win me over because i don't think i could ever trust her. >> reporter: yeah, the polls show more and more sanders supporters are now shifting their allegiance to hillary clinton but they also show that about one in four still say they will not vote for her, george. >> they do, okay, cecilia, thanks very much. let's talk to bernie sanders right now. senator, thanks for joining us. we saw that hug of hillary clinton yesterday. but, boy, cecilia was suggesting a lot of your supporters still
7:07 am
pretty upset. some facebook posts, "you broke my heart and betrayed the left, senator sanders," from cesar diaz. jessica boyer, "you chose her over us." what do you say to your supporters that feel betrayed? >> what i say is absolutely imperative for the future of this country that donald trump not be elected president of the united states. and what i say in a time when this country has enormous crises, we do not and cannot have a man with trump's temperament, with the nuclear code and running this country. >> so it's about the lesser of two evils? >> no, it's not about the lesser of two evils. if you look at issue by issue, we have hillary clinton who wants to significantly raise the minimum wage because we have millions in this country working at starvation wages. donald trump wants to allow states to have the right to do away with the concept of the minimum wage. people could be working for 5 bucks an hour. hillary clinton wants to expand health care. hillary clinton wants to make public colleges and universities' tuition-free for all families in country making
7:08 am
$125,000 or less. trump wants to end the affordable care act and throw 20 million people off of health insurance. trump does not even believe what the entire scientific community is telling us about climate change and the need to transform our energy system. >> but as you know, senator, not all of your supporters are convinced so, what more does hillary clinton need to do and do you think it might help if you ran on the ticket with her? are you open to that? >> well, i think what secretary clinton needs to do is get around the country and make the case which candidate for president is stronger for the american middle class, for working families, and i think, george, when we start focusing on the real issues facing this country, the answer is going to be very clear. what trump wants to do is give huge tax breaks, hundreds of billions of dollars in tax breaks to the wealthiest people in this country. that is pretty crazy. >> are you open to being her running mate? >> well, that issue has not been raised yet and i doubt that that
7:09 am
will happen. >> it's pretty late in the game so -- but you would be considered if she asked. >> well, look, right now what my job is to do is to make sure that hillary clinton is elected president, that we defeat trump, that we come up with a set of principles and an agenda that speaks to the needs of working families. and i'm very proud by the way that over the last couple of weeks, as you may know, that the democratic platform now is the most progressive platform in the history of the democratic party. and that secretary clinton, i think, is speaking about some of the very real issues that impact our people. >> what do you think is happening out there? we have these new polls this morning showing hillary clinton behind in florida right now. donald trump basically tied or ahead in pennsylvania and ohio. >> well, i think what secretary clinton is going to have to do is get around the country and contrast her views to donald trump's. this is -- you know, the point i made yesterday, george, this is not a beauty contest between trump and hillary clinton.
7:10 am
this is the fact that the middle class of this country is in trouble. which candidate has more to say about education, more to say about health care, more to say about climate change, more to say about income and wealth inequality, more to say about a sensible foreign policy, and the more the people hear the contrast between the two i think secretary clinton's support will grow. >> finally, sir, you've seen this war of words between justice ginsburg and donald trump right now. was it appropriate for a supreme court justice to call a presidential candidate a faker and to joke about moving to new zealand? >> well, that's -- i'll let justice ginsburg answer that herself. >> what do you think? >> well, what i think is that right now we have to focus on electing hillary clinton to be president of the united states. let me be very clear, i agree with what justice ginsburg said. i think that trump is a total opportunist. i think i would -- i do not believe anything that comes out
7:11 am
of his mouth because i think the record is quite clear that he lies just a whole lot of the time and i think we need a president right now who is prepared to be consistent, to stand up for working families and to protect our children. >> senator sanders, thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you. let's get more now from our political analyst matthew dowd and, matthew, let's get to those new quinnipiac polls out this morning. probably the most surprising is that big flip in the state of florida over the last month, eight-point hillary clinton lead, now a deficit. what do you think is going on? >> well, george, i think this should be very concerning. i didn't believe that initial number in florida and i think we have to make sure we don't attribute cause and effect too greatly to this but something has moved in the country over the course of the last few weeks and it's not to hillary's benefit. i think it had a lot to do with the fbi director's press conference and hearing which wasn't a criminal indictment but certainly was a political indictment and i think that's affected her trust numbers which
7:12 am
have always been problematic. this is a huge problem for hillary clinton. it looks like she has a national lead but in the electoral states she is either tied or behind in them and so it sets up a scenario where she could win the popular vote but lose the electoral college. concerning. >> and this is even before the republican convention next week. >> yes, george, it's before the convention and it's before donald trump's vice presidential announcement which will give him an added bump. she'll get a bump from her convention but this should be a concerning thing to hillary clinton and her campaign in the course of this. >> okay, matt dowd, thanks very much. all right, george, and president obama is preparing to meet with activists, law enforcement and other leaders today, bringing everyone together in the wake of the recent deadly shootings around the country. after giving an emotional speech in dallas, at a memorial service for the fallen police officers. the president saying we are not as divided as we seem. abc's jon karl is at the white house with more. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, robin. this was a powerful and emotional speech from the president, first and foremost a
7:13 am
tribute to those five fallen officers, to the entire dallas police and to police across the country. he said that protesters who vilify police do an injustice to their cause but he struck a balance here. he also spoke out about the killings of philando castile and alton sterling at the hands of police and he pleaded for a better understanding between police and the communities they protect. >> because with an open heart we can learn to stand in each other's shoes and look at the world through each other's eyes so that maybe the police officer sees his own son in that teenager with a hoodie who's kind of goofing off but not dangerous and the teenager, maybe the teenager will see in the police officer the same words and values and authority of his parents. >> reporter: you could hear the frustration in the president's voice. he said he has spoken at too many of these memorials and he acknowledged the inadequacy of words including his own to bring
7:14 am
about lasting change. >> yeah, we listened to that and also quite a moment for dallas police chief david brown yesterday, as well. >> reporter: oh, it really was. he received a standing ovation extended heartfelt, even before he spoke, more than any single person, it is chief brown that has held that community together. >> yes, he's been on it from the get-go and president obama, jon, will join our town hall tomorrow night to discuss the recent tragic shootings and how we can all move forward. you can see the president and the people 8:00 p.m. eastern, 7:00 central, right here on abc, and david muir will moderate that discussion. the latest from baton rouge. a city on edge after authorities arrest three suspects for plotting to kill police officers, another suspect still on the loose, in a city already tense from that fatal police shooting of alton sterling. abc's alex perez has the latest. >> reporter: this morning, a manhunt under way in baton rouge for a remaining suspect who authorities believe was part of a plot involving at least three
7:15 am
other men to kill police officers in this louisiana city. >> we took those threats as being credible. >> reporter: police arrested two men and a 13-year-old boy after a burglar attempt at this pawnshop, allegedly stole eight handguns and they were seeking ammunition to take down officers. >> was going to cause harm to police officers in the baton rouge area. >> reporter: this threat comes after the shooting death of alton sterling last week. that shooting caused a week of chaos here which saw hundreds of protesters arrested and led many to question if police were too heavy-handed. law enforcement officials say it was this threat to kill officers, why they took such aggressive tactics. >> very real and viable threats against law enforcement. look what happened in dallas. a very peaceful protest and then some crazy madman did what he did. >> reporter: and authorities say they have recovered six of those eight stolen handguns, the search for that fourth suspect
7:16 am
ongoing, george. >> okay, alex, thanks very much. now, let's get to amy for the other top stories. you have a big day on wall street yesterday. >> that's right, investors are riding high on wall street. the dow and s&p are opening at record highs today. investors turning to riskier stocks growing more confident about growth. the markets have shrugged off concern now about britain's exit from the european union. and british prime minister david cameron is formally handing in his resignation to queen elizabeth today. his successor, theresa may, takes over in just a few hours. cameron will move into a home that's being loaned to him. his family's house is currently being rented because, see, he didn't expect to be moving out of downing street so soon. well, the popular pokemon smartphone game is raising serious privacy questions and now a u.s. senator wants some answers. al franken has written to the game's creator to ask the company to clarify what user data is collected and whether or not is being shared.
7:17 am
the american league won the all-star game last night but the real highlight was singer rachel platten's surprise performance after the fifth inning. ♪ take back my life song my power's turned on ♪ >> platten who also sang the national anthem sang, as you're hearing now, her smash hit "the fight song" during a tribute to those fighting cancer. this is my favorite part, take a look -- the players were holding up stand up to cancer signs bearing the names of people they care about who fought or are fighting cancer and that just gives you chills moment. >> every time that you see that. there was a game too. there was a game too and the biggest hit of the all-star game was boston red sox star david ortiz, who's retiring after this season, walking off the field tipping his hat to the crowd and all the players poured out of the dugout to celebrate him. he's having one of the best seasons of his career but he's going anyway and ortiz thought he was going to have an easy
7:18 am
time at the plate but take a look at this pitch by jose fernandez. oh, yeah, he's a lifelong ortiz fan. i hate to see if he wasn't. but he promised he would throw an easy pitch to hit. as you can see they're laughing, they had a good time with it, and then ortiz walked off and a moment that will definitely go down in baseball history and what a great career he's had. >> man. >> he deserves all the accolades. >> he is saving the best for last. >> absolutely. >> we don't want to see him go. >> and we're saving our best for last, ginger. thank you very much. severe weather and let's look at this flash flooding. when you get one to two inches of rain falling very quickly in roanoke, virginia, that's what it looks like in the streets, rushing up against the cars. thankfully they're drying out this morning but water rescues were in place. today the flash flood potential and certainly severe weather threat, 60-mile-per-hour to 70-mile-per-hour wind gusts stretched from wichita to kansas city.

7:32 am
people citywide to report anything unfamiliar in their neighborhoods. this morning, a city on edge, the hunt continues for a potential serial killer or killers after police have recently linked four incidents to a string of shootings that injured two people and killed seven in all, including a 12-year-old girl. on tuesday, officials releasing this sketch of the possible gunman. they believe he is responsible for eight seemingly random shootings since march spanning nearly 100 square miles putting thousands of residents in the crosshairs. >> the person that is doing this is wicked. there's something wrong with him. >> reporter: investigators telling abc news each of the eight shootings took place on a weekend night. the shooter or shooters opening fire on parked cars in front of homes. some victims getting out of their cars when they were shot. others never made it out. >> they walked up to the front of the car, looked through the
7:33 am
windshield and when they saw two women and a young girl, they opened fire. >> reporter: family members of the victims too afraid to show their faces. >> just say something because it's not fair that all these people are being taken. >> reporter: phoenix police adding extra patrols at night and on the weekends asking everyone to keep an eye out for anything suspicious. >> raise your level of awareness in your neighborhoods. watch out for your family. watch out for your neighbors. >> reporter: now, the fbi and u.s. marshals have joined the investigation. a $30,000 reward being offered up for any information leading to an arrest, but for now they have no motive and no suspect. police are now investigating incidents as far back as january, and they say in most cases he gets out of the car and shoots and then escapes in a vehicle and, robin, this morning they have no idea who it is. >> that is scary, all right, kayna, thank you. for more let's bring in former fbi special agent brad garrett.
7:34 am
so, brad, you heard what kayna said in her report. this is dating back to march. what's your take on this case? >> well, robin, typically when you have shootings clustered like this one appears to be in the merrydale area of west phoenix, the shooter is going to have some connection to that neighborhood. my guess is there is no direct connection between the victims, but they represent something to him. in 2005 and '06, they had a similar version of this in phoenix. those guys went after prostitutes and homeless people so there's probably some trick in it as far as why he's killing in that particular part of west phoenix. >> and give us more of a profile of this shooter, brad. >> well, these type of guys whether it's one or two, typically have some anger rage issue. it's, again, not directed at particular people. it may be directed at a particular neighborhood because of what it represents as far as the shooter is concerned. they have a fascination with the media. probably have collected
7:35 am
newspaper articles, videos, et cetera. there may have been -- they may have changed their appearance recently now that there's more media profile of this case. they tend to miss work, usually the next day after a shooting. >> all things to keep in mind and we heard in kayna's report also that the reward money has been upped to $30,000. police are asking for the public's help. what can people do to help catch this killer and remain safe? >> well, this is what will catch this killer, it's the public reporting it, it's surveillance cameras, and it's license plate readers. >> all those things, hopefully that will be the case that needs to come to an end quickly for everybody there in phoenix. brad garrett, thanks so much. >> scary situation there. we'll move on now to the latest on gretchen carlson and her lawsuit against fox news chairman roger ailes. in an interview with "the new york times," the former anchor is speaking out about her claims that ailes sexually harassed in
7:36 am
the work place. and rebecca jarvis is here with the details. good morning, rebecca. >> hi, george, good morning. this is a revealing new interview after more than a dozen of her former fox news colleagues have spoken out to defend their boss, roger ailes, gretchen carlson is now sharing her side of the story. former fox news anchor gretchen carlson now speaking out for the first time since filing a sexual harassment lawsuit against her former boss, fox news chair roger ailes. >> i'm gretchen carlson. >> reporter: overnight, telling "the new york times," "i just wanted to stand up for myself, first and foremost, and i wanted to stand up for other women who maybe faced similar circumstances." >> thanks very much to roger ailes who runs this corporation. >> reporter: in a lawsuit filed last wednesday, the former "fox & friends" anchor claimed her contract at the network was not renewed after she complained she was harassed by ailes and refused his sexual advances. the 50-year-old former miss america telling "the times," "everyone knew how powerful roger ailes was. i certainly felt intimidated by that." carlson was let go from the
7:37 am
network in june when she was informed her contract would not be renewed. it was cold and calculating, she says, it took 30 seconds. there was no thank you for your service of 11 years. and there was absolutely no discussion of ratings. ailes, one of the most powerful men in cable news, tells abc news carlson's allegations are false. "this is a retaliatory suit for the network's decision not to renew her contract, which was due to the fact that her disappointingly low ratings were dragging down the afternoon lineup." fox releasing handwritten notes carlson sent to ailes last year, thanking him for opportunities and asking for more time on air. when asked by "the times" why she sent them if she felt she was being harassed she says, "i think it's hard when you've been a victim. you keep thinking things are going to get better." now, more than a dozen fox news personalities have spoken out in support of ailes, some of them questioning the timing and motivation of carlson's suit.
7:38 am

7:41 am
with more on this morning's top stories and first up, millions are hooked on pokemon go and apparently we are. it's our third day talking about it. the number of players closing in on twitter users in the u.s., the national safety council issuing an advisory, this is big news, as concerns are raised about the impact this new obsession may be having on us all. dr. michael fraser, clinical psychologist, joins us now. and we have been talking about this for many days, because we see how many people are doing it all around the country here. what kind of impact because we hear from people they are truly obsessed with this, that they have been doing it nonstop, doctor. >> well, i think a couple of things are important to keep in mind with games like this. first of all, this is the game that involves collecting things, obviously involves collecting the pokemon, and in games like this what's important to understand, we're finding that the brain actually transmits dopamine to the pleasure centers of the brain which makes it a pleasurable experience so when somebody finds the treasure there is a pleasurable sensation when they do that.
7:42 am
this keeps them coming back. the game developers absolutely know this and that's why they've developed games like this. their job is to get as many playing as possible but keep them coming back and to keep them playing the game and continuing to collect. one of the things that we definitely feel is that these games should be monitored carefully and when a person finds that they're playing the game excessively understanding when they need to say no and wenl they need to turn the game off. >> doctor, how young is too young for children to play this game and as an adult at what point when you're playing do you say i need to reel myself in a little bit? i'm going overboard. >> that's a great question. one of the first games i've encountered where this is requiring to get people off the couch and out into the real world so, if you're a parent, you certainly want to make sure you're exercising common sense and make sure your kids exercise common sense and monitor where they're playing but get out there and try it and play it. however, one thing i would urge and advise parents to look carefully at when your child cannot turn the game off and when they're getting into arguments or fights and having a hard time saying stop or saying no.
7:43 am
and also, if you're an adult one of the things to keep in mind, as with any addiction if it's starting to interfere with your job or starting to interfere with your relationships and you're really starting to take a look at the role this game is having this your life. >> all things to look out for, you're right about that. >> absolutely. thank you, doctor. and next up, amazon's massive black friday sale known as prime day setting records but not without complaints. consumers taking to twitter with their technical difficulties and tory johnson is joining us this morning to talk about this. good morning, tory. >> hey there. >> and christmas in july, it is over. amazon saying they had record numbers so what is your take on it? how did it go? >> i think it went well, aside from some early morning complaints from consumers who said that they had difficulty with checkouts that seemed to be resolved pretty quickly without much fanfare and then it was smooth sailing or smooth shopping. let me give you an idea. in just the first eight hours in the united states alone, here's what people bought. 22,000 televisions, including that super fancy samsung that
7:44 am
you and i michael, loved, sold out very quickly. 196,000 pairs of shoes, 270,000 toys, and it is not just the kids who scored big. all of us cleaned up big time with what amazon says is enough tide dishwashing detergent to wash your dishes for 17,000 years and kind of a fun best-seller, 23,000 roombas, which outsold last year's prime day so we're going to have some clean homes. >> yeah, we are. i think it's a spot that you and michael did yesterday, that really drove sales up. you pushed it. >> yes. >> and also, how about walmart, i mean, they made a splashy announcement saying 30 days free shipping, how did that work out? >> walmart says it's working out well. i talked to walmart last night. they said, listen, we are focused on low prices every single day throughout the year, not one day and not for just special customers who are members. but they did want in on the action so all this week they have offered through friday free
7:45 am
shipping, no minimum order, no membership required. but on amazon's part this is not just a one and done kind of day. for amazon this is not about cleaning out the warehouse and getting us to buy unwanted goods. this is about poking customers in prime because a prime member spends more money on amazon every year than a nonprime member. and the good news for amazon is that once we try prime, we tend to stick with it and so that free shipping kind of gets us all. >> i have enough toilet paper to last until, you know, the next century. >> i know where to get some when i run out, at your house. battle against tooth decay. next up, good news in the battle against tooth decay. dentists foregoing the drill in favor of a pain-free solution for cavities but does it really work? dr. brian kantor, a cosmetic dentist joins us now. you have our attention. does this really work? tell us more about it. >> well, it's an antimicrobial liquid that you actually paint
7:46 am
on the tooth. it will seep into the tooth and it will actually arrest the cavities. it will kill the bacteria and harden the surrounding tooth structure. so it's great in the fact it's inexpensive, it's quick, it's easy, there's no drill, so it is good for certain populations. the pediatric population, there are a lot of young toddlers who get a lot of cavities, and you have to treat them in a hospital setting and sedate them because they're not compliant to be treated in a dental office so, this product can actually arrest the cavities, allow the child to get a little more mature and you can treat them in a dental office as they get older. it's great for the geriatric population, nursing homes, so instead of having decay spread it will arrest the decay there and it's especially great for people who can't really afford normal dentistry, it's great for third world country, lower income areas. it doesn't take place at having normal fillings but it's the next big thing, instead of having decay spread all over your mouth, it arrests it. >> what's the price tag on this? >> it is very inexpensive.
7:47 am
it's a liquid, you paint it on. but there are limitations to this, this is not the end all, not going to change dentistry, not going to replace the fillings. limitations you now have a hole or a void within the tooth where the cavity was so you still have to have it filled and the worst part about this product is that it will stain any part of the tooth that has decay black and as a cosmetic dentist i like to make teeth lighter, not darker. >> ah, there's the catch. we were wondering what the catch is, there's a catch. >> yes. >> thank you to dr. brian kantor, tory and dr. fraser, thank you, as well. >> wait a minute. okay, and the big board, show of hands, pokemon, who's playing? who's playing? who's playing? who's playing? >> you can admit it. >> all three? >> the guys look like they want to say they are but they can't let their kids know. >> okay, i thought i'd give it a shot. coming up, our hot shot of the day. the bear cub caught inside a car. how did he get there and the hero deputies who came to his rescue. look at that. come on back. look at that.
