3:32 am
forge better relations between law enforcement and schools. last year, he was honored by the district. but court records she fields had been accused of abusive behavior three times. a jury ruled in his favor in the 2005 case. a 2006 case was dismissed. and a case accusing him of racially profiling a student was set for trial in january. sheriff leon lott says an internal investigation will determine if he keeps his job. >> had she not disrupted the school or the class we would not be standing here today. it started with her and ended with my officer. what i'm going to deal with is what my deputy did. >> reporter: the school district would not answer questions about the teacher or the students in the classroom. thor the sheriff's internal investigation is expected to be completed in 24 hours. the federal investigation could take several weeks. donald trump's grip on the republican presidential nomination appears to be
3:33 am
slipping. for the first time since he entered the race, trump is not the front runner. now it's ben carson. a poll of likely republican primary voters nationwide shows 26% favor carson, and 22% support trump. meanwhile, the chief executive of ford is blasting the billionaire candidate, who has been bragging about shaming ford for moving a production line from mexico to ohio. he insists trump had nothing to do with the decision. major garrett has more. >> mexico took a ford plant. i've been very tough on ford. you've heard me talking about ford. i heard last night ford is moving back to the united states. [ applause ] i should get credit for that. >> reporter: credit for what? ford will still spend $2.35 million in mexico to build two new plants. ford is moving about 1,000 jobs

3:35 am
in just over two weeks, trump has lost 12 points among ev evangelic evangelicals. trump has lost ground in every single demographic group while carson has gaped. the best news for trump, 54% of supporters say they've made up their mind and only 19% of carson voters are that certain. that certainty may prove pivotal for trump down the stretch. the people who make "saturday night live" are coming under fire for inviting donald trump to host the show next month. jan crawford has that story. >> reporter: a coalition of latino groups says trump's remarks about mexican immigrants disqualify him as appearing. a new poll is showing 72% of hispanics view trump unfavorably. but so far "saturday night live" is not backing down. >> let's face it, nobody alive has more class than me.

3:37 am
destination for political candidates. >> the real one? >> reporter: many of whom find themselves in scenes with the very actors who have been making fun of them on the show. >> i think snl plays a unique role in the way that people perceive candidates. >> reporter: but trump will be hosting the entire 90-minute show. >> it's exceedingly common for candidates to appear on the show. but hosting is an all-together different matter. it's a big boost for a candidate to have that platform. >> reporter: a boost that has many detractors upset. >> i don't see nbc reversing this decision. they see it as a ratings gold mine and they see themselves as a political humor place. and this is a perfect opportunity for political humor. >> reporter: trump's appearance could trigger the s.e.c.'s equal time rules. those rules which do not apply to news programs give equal

3:44 am
>> all you have to do is look around here at the museum and there are boeing planes all over the place. and the story of this company is, in many ways, the story of america and what american ingenuity can accomplish. in a world where flying is routine, but gravity is a law of nature, it's still mind blowing. 500,000 pounds rising into the sky, miles above the earth, soaring at 35,000 feet. and this factory outside statle is where it comes together. ever walk in here and go wow? >> literally every day. >> reporter: these are among the biggest airplanes in the world, built here by bowing in one of the world's biggest buildings, overseen by vice president elizabeth lund. >> if you took the empire state building and laid on its side, you could put 12 of them inside
