7:11 am
town hall. two hours, civil and substantive and offered a glimpse of a quieter political universe and one without the gop front-runner donald trump. 14 republican candidates paraded up on stage like people interviewing for the biggest job in the world. >> thank you. >> thank you, governor perry. thank you. >> reporter: when their time was up, they were hustled right back off. adding to the unconventional look, three senators stuck in washington for floor votes appeared by a video link. donald trump boycotted the event in a spat with one of the forum's sponsors and without trump, republicans found little to quarrel about. >> every person has participated in this debate is far better than any of the democrats running. and so i'm honored to be a candidate. >> reporter: so they turned their attention to hillary clinton. >> whether it's hillary clinton or joe biden, i'm a new, fresh face versus a name from the past.
7:12 am
>> bill says i didn't have sex with that woman, he did. once she tells me, trust me, you got all of the e-mails you need, we haven't even scratched the surface. >> in order to beat hillary clinton or whoever their nominee turns out to be we have to have a nominee on our side who is throwing every punch because this is a fight. >> reporter: from washington, senator marco rubio spoke for many of his rivals about the threat of terrorism but added this ominous warning. >> in my mind it's not if we are attacked but when we are attacked. >> reporter: john kasich urged republicans to reach out to the margins of society. >> i think it's very important that with economic growth comes responsibility and ability to help people who live in the shadows. whether they are mentally ill or drug-addicted. >> reporter: new jersey drug chris christie poked fun at his -- new jersey governor chris christie poked fun at his marathon town hall appearances across new hampshire. >> i'm like the bad relative you invite for thanksgiving. >> reporter: with trump increasing his lead, the republicans prepare for the prime time cable event where
7:13 am
only ten of the 17 announced candidates can participate and have to find a way to close the distance without looking desperate. john dickerson is the moderator of "face the nation" and in manchester, new hampshire. what did we learn from what happened last night and what does it indicate for what might happen later this week? >> well, we didn't learn much from last night. some new hampshire voters may have learned something because they hadn't been watching these candidates as much as we have. but this was essentially, a speed editing process where they were given a question and they grabbed the paragraph from their stump speech and recited that. it was as if this race were a kind of a happening at the normal pace where candidates are still introducing themselves to voters, not a race that had been totally up-ended by donald trump. so it doesn't tell us much about thursday night.
7:14 am
>> so after many predictions that donald trump would fall in the polls after his controversial remarks, it turns out, according to our new cbs news poll out this morning, that trump leads among conservatives and tea party supporters and evangelicals and men and women. what is behind the support? >> i think the most interesting number in our poll is that 79% of the respondents he says what he believes. the other candidates are 50% or much lower on that crucial point. it appears to be the case right now that donald trump, the people are so starved for candor from politicians that they are rushing to him because he appears to say what is on his mind and that was -- he is just dominating in that category and that is why he is doing well among all of those groups. even in people who say they are not tea party supporters he is basically neck and neck with jeb bush. >> they also say he inspires a lot of negative feelings, the same about hillary clinton, she,
7:15 am
too, inspires a lot of negative feelings. what do you make of the negativity in the race this early on? >> it means that donald trump has a big problem ahead of him. one of the interesting findings inside of our poll is the more people get to know him who are republicans, the more they like him. but those who are registered voters, it's exactly the opposite. so the problem for donald trump is while he is growing among republicans who are liking him, his problem is among the general electorate. one of the things the republican primary voters have to wrestle with they want to elect someone who can win in the general election and, so far, donald trump hasn't shown he can increase his popularity among that larger electorate. >> back to nor a's original question. how do the opponents of trump believe they can stop him? >> he has to follow his own weight. on thursday night, for example, executing an attack on trump that would be successful is a
7:16 am
very high wire act and if there is a big chance you could fail. >> when you -- >> so these candidates have to show more of what -- >> i'm sorry, john. i was going so say when jeb bush says he is coming to the debate with his big boy pants on, does that mean he is going to take on trump? >> well, it means he can't say i'm going to coward in the corner and whimper. he is going to take on trump maybe if trump attacks him but my guess he wouldn't on his own. >> but others will? >> maybe. but i'm not sure. >> john dickerson in new hampshire, thank you so much. some republicans say this morning they are not done yet trying to cut off money for a planned parenthood. senate democrats blocked a bill monday to remove federal funding. planned parenthood received 528 million dollars last year from the government and it is under fire the way it gives fetal tissue to medical researchers. the senate take up the issue in september when it votes on major spending bill. if that doesn't pass, the government could shut down. a suspected cop killer in

7:18 am
late saturday night when officer bolton approached an illegally parked car. police say boulton unknowingly interrupted a drug deal after a brief confrontation, wilbourn pulled out a gun and repeatedly shot the officer. this man lives steps away from where bolton was stopped. >> i was watching tv and all of a sudden, heard a boom, boom, boom, boom. >> reporter: you heard it? >> yes, i did. >> reporter: did you know immediately what it was. >> definitely sounded like gunshots. >> reporter: baileys went outside when he saw his neighbor using a police radio to call for help. boulton is the third memphis officer killed in the last four years. the 33-year-old was a former marine who served in iraq. he joined the police department in 2010. a memorial has been steadily growing as people come to pay their respects. the funeral for officer sean

lobbies to defend hunters rights and does not conduct trophy hunts and no funding from african big game hunters are on safaris. nick pinizzotto, pleased to have you here. this interview will include videos of hunters and their trophies and will not say any took part in an illegal hunt. what is the appeal to you and what is your response to the outcry against what happens? >> i mean, the appeal is very simple. i mean, it's a deeply personal thing. for a lot of us it starts out as a child. you're a parent or a friend takes you out to experience the outdoors. for people that have never experienced that i can understand why there is just confusion, they don't understand just the beauty of it. >> you're talking about hunting in general? >> hunting in general, yeah. and it's about getting our own food which is has always been a tradition in my family and many others. knowing where that food comes from san exciting thing to see a movement now here in the united states where people are more interested in that type of thing. so that is good for hunting. you know, to have this come into
8:35 am
the news the way it has, it's, you know, we don't enjoy talking about this type of thing because we don't know what happened here, by the way. we are going to find out. there will be an investigation. but on the other hand, it's an opportunity because we don't often get these forums to talk about all of the great things about hunting so i good at this as a great opportunity to do that. >> we want to give you the opportunity. because so many people you see the hunter standing there grinning very proudly with their game and it has nothing to do with food the hunting we are talking about. so how do you justify the killing at the same time saying it's a way of conservation as well? that is what is confusing, nick. walk us through that. >> sure, absolutely. i think in general the term trophy hunting has been loosely used and thrown around. for example, i love to hunt deer. and when i get my tag to hunt deer which, by the way, is given to me by the state wildlife management agency i get to decide then, you know, what type of animal i want to shoot. for me it's really about value, not about trophy. but i'm doing that in a very managed way. i'll take that animal home and eat it.
8:36 am
the majority, you know, overwhelming majority that is what happens. in terms of the value, though, hunting is almost a 90 billion dollar overall industry impact on the economy in the united states alone. we tax ourselves. 10% to 11% and 200 million dollars, almost $200 million goes back -- >> i'm not aware that hunting under fire in the united states generally speaking. certainly some people oppose it. i think wher talking about what happened in africa and the outrage over cecil, the lion. luring a animal the way it was allegedly lured and then letting it essentially die slowly for 40 minutes is that considered a fair hunt? >> i think the key thing you said there, we got to find out first what happened and we are all looking forward to that investigation. >> i think they said they dragged a dead elephant carcass in order to lure the lion in. >> if something illegal was done, you know, no reasonable organization like mine would
8:37 am
ever condone something like that. let's let the facts come out and see and hope it never happened but if it did, we would condone that. >> would you condemn it though? >> absolutely. >> if those were the facts would you condemn it? . should a lion who was such a pride of everybody there be subjected to this? >> okay, in this case we have almost a celebrity animal right? we have given this wild animal a name and he has been killed. i absolutely can understand the outrage particularly from people who have never -- they don't think about hunt ago whole lot. we are not in the news. as an industry we haven't done the best job of telling people about the importance of hunting and africa is a great example because if you stop hunting those animals in a managed way, by the way, not just killing, then all of a sudden you don't have money to go in to stop poaching which by the way, is the real problem. people going out and killing these animals and selling them on the black market. the money the americans and europeans spend in africa to do this go into the anti-poaching programs. the last thing we want to do is
8:38 am
let the animals go stinth extinct. >> why not die naturally and take the pictures and let the animals die naturally? why is that not a good idea? >> people romanticize the idea of mother nature being a jent thing. none of us are comfortable with death. we are not comfortable with that. animals don't get to go and die of ab old age. if we don't hunt them and manage them in the environment we live in now where there are a lot of human beings here we are talking about disease and loss of habitat. i watched the video of the other day of wolves taking down a mule deer. talking about 40 minutes allegedly it took the lion to die. this mule deer suffered and was eaten alive for over four hours. as a hunter as a human being, that makes me very emotional. i don't want to watch that. it's part of the simplecircle of life but mother nature is not
