7:11 am
huckster, and a menace to american conservativism. in response, the republican party dropped the "national review" as a debate co-partner next month. major garrett is in washington. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. donald trump dismissed "the national review" as a paper nobody reads anymore. last april he called it a true conservative voice. ronald reagan is the best example of the "national review"'s influence on conservativism. >> if you think of the last time we beat the washington cartel, it was 1980, it was the reagan revolution. >> reporter: ted cruz, who bob dole just claimed has likability
7:12 am
problems, quoted ronald reagan. >> the american people understand that cutting a deal is not what the american people want. >> reporter: trump said he's ready to make deals. >> he's a strident guy, "no, you cannot have that." ronald reagan would get along with tip o'neill and they would sit down and make great deals for everybody. >> reporter: in new hampshire, john kasich, like jeb bush, is trying to rise from the ashes. kasich has moved into contention for second in a poll of undeclared voters and has taken aim at his close rival, bush, attacking his record in florida. a super-pac supporting kasich accused bush of mud slinging. >> desperately slinging mud at fellow republicans. that's not presidential, jeb. >> reporter: he called hillary clinton a fragile candidate. >> she's a check-the-box
7:13 am
candidate. people don't want somebody who is a plumber, a mechanic. >> reporter: he says he needs a strong finish in new hampshire or the game is over. >> many people in politics, it's interesting, they want to be with a winner. they don't want to make a winner. if we come out of new hampshire in a strong position, they'll be there to join the team. >> reporter: both trump and cruz will be on the air today with new ads attacking each other. lindsey graham summed up republican options between the two, concluding if either is the nominee, the republican party faces extinction, asking, norah, whether it's death by being shot or poisoning, "does it really matter?" >> thanks, major. bernie sanders has an 8-point lead over hillary clinton in a new poll. the same poll showed clinton leading in iowa by 18 points just a month ago. she is still ahead in the national polls but is now in a tight race in the first two voting states. nancy cordes is in washington tracking the democratic contest. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. because of those numbers, the
7:14 am
clinton camp is really throwing everything they've got at sanders, looking to see what sticks. they're hitting him for his views on diplomacy, on healthcare. they even called him out for what was supposed to be an upbeat ad. >> we have had enough of establishment politics, establishment economics. we need to move in a new and bold direction. >> reporter: in new hampshire last night, bernie sanders largely ignored hillary clinton's latest attack on his foreign policy views. >> it raises concerns because sometimes it can sound like he hasn't really thought it through. >> reporter: her comments were part of a broader offensive by the clinton camp to blunt sanders's momentum even as they question his anti-establishment credentials. >> he's been elected to office a lot longer than i have. ♪ to look for america >> reporter: even this new
7:15 am
feel-good ad from sanders, set to the strains of simon and garfunkel, came under fire from clinton's supporters, saying the crowds in it were too white. >> i don't think there is a woman more confident than hillary clinton. >> reporter: she hit iowa city with singer debi lovato last night and has campaigned with katie perry. she visited simpson college, where this young man plans to go door for door for her in his dorm. >> i think they see eye to eye with them and they think they are great ideas but some people aren't as realistic. >> reporter: part of the problem, the clinton camp argues, is that iowa democrats are looking for the same kind of thrill they got in 2008 when
7:16 am
barack obama swept in and stole their hearts. sanders may be 74, gayle, but he's the closest thing to a fresh face this time around. >> all right, nancy. very well-said. thank you. >> we believe that 74 can be a fresh face. >> absolutely. and how. very nice, norah. the motion picture academy is planning what it calls dramatic steps to increase the diversity of oscar nominees after backlash over this year's nominees. changes could include a larger number of best picture and acting nominations. the academy may revoke voting privileges for those who don't cast ballots on a regular basis. kevin frazier has more. >> reporter: good morning. jada pinkett-smith really jump-started the conversation about diversity with her video on monday, saying she wouldn't watch or attend the academy
7:17 am
awards, putting new pressure on actors to take a stand and for academy members to take a hard look in the mirror. >> i was happy to be married to that woman. >> reporter: actor will smith told us he was out of the country when his wife posted this message to her facebook page on monday. >> i will not be at the academy awards and won't be watching. >> reporter: this after two years of acting nominations with no persons of color. >> it feels like it's going the wrong direction. there's a regressive slide towards separatism, towards racial and religious dis-harmony. and that's not the hollywood i want to leave behind. >> will smith is so well-respected in the hollywood community and successful, for
7:18 am
him to actually come out and say that he also recognizes there's a problem, that there is something about inclusion that's not happening in the hollywood community, is a huge deal. >> reporter: academy has been handing out oscars since 1929, and in all that time, it has only given 15 of them to black actors. a 2013 study puts academy membership at 93% white. the controversy has sparked conversation and introspection in the acting community, including oscar nominated members of the motion picture academy. >> i think if you look at the statistics that came out, the makeup of the academy, i think it's very telling. >> i have a lot of sympathy for it, to be honest with you, i have thought about it quite a bit. >> the problem is not with the oscar. the problem is with the hollywood movie making system. >> reporter: the spotlight on diversity is expected to continue through the ceremony itself with outspoken comedian
7:19 am
chris rock. >> chris rock is not the kind of person known for holding his tongue. he's a cultural critic at its best. we would expect him to use this moment to shine a light on the issue. >> reporter: back to will smith, he was seen as a possible best actor nominee for his work in the movie "concussion," but jada says it's not about her husband, that even if he was nominated, she would have made that video. she claims the lack of diversity is an industry-wide problem. >> she's giving a lot of people a lot to think about. thank you very much, kevin. "entertainment tonight" will bring you the latest developments on the oscar controversy. check your local listings. ahead, what happens when local government responses to the weather fall short. right now, time to check your local weather.

inadequate response. >> reporter: an often-heard sentiment from local officials following winter storm responses that go wrong. >> i feel terrible. >> reporter: atlanta's mayor apologized in 2014 after an ice storm left thousands of drivers stranded. but the governor took the fall. >> i'm the governor. the buck stops with me. >> this is fifth avenue. where is the sanitation department? >> reporter: after back to back storms in 2014. >> it wasn't plowed at all. >> reporter: new york city's mayor bill de blasio offered a mea culpa to the big apple after failing to deploy snowplows. >> it wasn't handled properly. >> weather forecasting is inherently uncertain. we have made tremendous progress in weather forecasting in the last ten to 15 years. some of the storms we can now see coming three, four, five days in advance, we didn't know
7:35 am
were coming the night before. >> reporter: as the nation's capital is in the bullseye, we asked the mayor if her city is prepared for the 2 feet of snow headed its way. what does last night's debacle say about the city's ability to handle the type of storm that's coming at it now? >> we don't believe that we prepared adequately for a forecast that was slightly less than what we got at rush hour. and we should have been out earlier with more resources. >> reporter: hundreds of snowplows will be out in the district of columbia itself. thousands more in the metro area. but if the region gets 2 feet of snow or more, regardless of how well the city plans for this event, it is likely going to be days and days of digging out. >> we're worried about dc and the other cities in the path. kris, thank you so much. uber is gaining ground against rental cars. the somewhere company certify
7:36 am
found uber eclipsing car companies for business travel. uber's chief service, uberx, is now allowed to pick up at national airport. cbs news's financial contributor mellody hobson is in chicago. mellody, good morning. >> good morning. >> why do we see business travelers turning to uber rather than renting a car? >> pun intended, convenience is driving this decision. when you really think about it, it is so much easier to step off the curb at l.a.x., los angeles airport, and step right into your uber car versus waiting in the taxi line or taking the shuttle to the car rental company. and when you think about it, once you're in the car, you can work, you don't have to worry about parking. there are a whole host of issues that make it much easier. it's more about convenience than even cost. >> been there, done that, nothing like seeing the shuttle drive away as you run up to the
7:37 am
curb, that's always fun. >> what does the cost breakdown show you about renting a car versus other factors? >> i looked at denver. denver international airport, you rent a car, two-day rental will cost you about $237. when you layer on taxes and fees and parking at your hotel. versus if you're on uberx and you do a round trip to your hotel, it will cost you about $85. now, this is not an apples to apples comparison unless you're going to that hotel and staying. that might be the case if it's a conference. but if you have many stops along the way, these numbers could obviously look very different if you're in uber on and off throughout the day. >> we had a story this week that millennials aren't getting their drivers licenses like they used to, is that affecting the car rental companies too? >> that study looked at people age 20 to 24.
7:38 am
generally you have to be 25 to rent a car so that's not directly affecting the companies. zipcar allows you to rent a car as young as 18. and they are bustling on college campuses. so i think it says that isn't not really going to be a factor. >> what do you make the general motors' investment, $500 million, into lyft? >> so they're saying they no longer want to be an auto company. automatic t all the car companies are saying this now. they want to be in the people mobility business. that means if it's you buying a car, if you're buying a car to be a ride sharing provider, if it's a self-driving car, whatever the way that the world is going, they want to be a part of it. i think it's very, very smart. >> very interesting. mellody hobson, thank you very much. always good to see you. he says he never meant to put himself or others at risk. >> i would never purposely do it, not because it's illegal, but because it's dangerous. i'm not trying to go out there and die. >> ahead, the snowboarder facing
