welcome to the overnight news. the people of new hampshire head to the polls today to cast the primary votes in the race for the white house. much of the state is in the grips of a snowstorm and that should affect voter turnout. the latest polls show bernie sanders and donald trump with commanding leads. for the gop, donald trump is at 30%. with john kasich a strong push at 14%, followed by marco rubio, jeb bush and ted cruz. for the democrats, sanders over hillary clinton by 22 points. john dickerson spoke to both democratic candidates for face the nation. >> senator, while you were in new york, north koreans launched a long-range missile. as president you would face that
thing all the time. very often. what secretary clinton is sag you don't have the experience to be ready for those kinds of challenges on day one? >> well that's what she said about barack obama in 2008. turned out not to be true. i'm impressed by the quality of his foreign policy. furthermore, on the most important foreign policy issue, in modern history, the war in iraq, i voted against the war. i led the opposition against the war. and if you go to my website, berniesanders.com, you will see that much of what i feared would happen, in fact, did happen. on the other hand. secretary clinton voted for the war. so, i think it is not just experience, obviously, she has been a secretary of state for four years. bit is judgment as well. but it is judgment as well. i am confident i can put together a strong team to provide great foreign policy for the people of the united states.
>> when you're president and there is a crisis you need to instill confidence in the country. in looking at the debates it is clear you're confident talking economic issues, income inequality. when it comes to foreign policy, you are less confident. how would you, how would you show confidence as a president on the issues? >> john, i think that is a media narrative that goes round and round and round. i don't accept that media narrative. again on the most important issue of our time. i was right. hillary clinton was wrong. this is the same argument made against barack obama in 2008. i will assemble a topnotch foreign policy team. and we will provide excellent and strong foreign policy for the people of the united states. what i believe right now is that we have got to learn the lessons of iraq. that its that the united states of america cannot do it alone. that we have to work in coalition, we have to work in coalition with major countries and with muslim countries whose
troops will be on the ground. my main concern, terms of the mideast, is to make certain that the united states does not get involved in perpetual warfare in the quagmire of iraq and syria. in afghanistan. >> you have thaukdalked a lot a donations hillary clinton receives from service sector. in debate she called that an artful smear. what is your response to that? >> it is a fact. when in the last reporting period, her superpac received $25 million. $15 million from wall street. what is the smear. that is the fact. >> she says you can't point to a single vote that she changed or an opinion that she changed, can you? >> nobody who has a superpac, gets money, republican or democrat from the pharmaceutical industry from fossil fuel industry from wall street there
has never been a politician in history who said that money influences me. it's just, people have thrown millions and millions into the campaign, but there is no reason why they're throwing that money into the campaign. i think, you know the american people know better. so i have never impugned a secretary clinton's integrity. i like secretary clinton. but we have a corrupt campaign finance system. i am proud, i do not have a super pac. we have raised $3.5 million individual contributions averaging $27 apiece. >> barack obama received a lot of money from the same groups. is he in the same fix as hillary clinton? >> it is a corrupt, it is a corrupt campaign finance system. let me tell you something, john. at the very top of my list, of goals that i want to accomplish, as president of the united
states. it does not mean that billionaires should be annal to buy elections. >>en the townhall the other night you said the financial interests "are not giving me very much money now." according to "the washington post" analysis, donors at hedge funds, banks, insurance companies and other financial services firms have given you at least $21.4 million. 10% of what you raised. that's a lot of money. >> that's not the calculation that we have done. that's somebody's analysis the i will not argue with it. what is really going on here, john is disturbing to me. i'll be frank with you. what the sanders campaign is trying to do is link donations to my political campaign or really donations to any one's political campaign with undue influence with changing people's views and votes. i have never, ever done that. i really do resent the implication or i said the other night the insinuation. it would be like saying,
president obama who took probably more money from wall street, any democrat has in 2008 with his successful campaign was therefore, disqualified. we know that was not true. he signed the toughest, financial regulation since the 1930s with the dodd frank bill. you know this is -- a very artful smear. and i am just not going to sit and take it anymore. >> are you saying on the questions that, people from the financial services industry have no greater access to you than anybody else? >> i'm saying that i am available to and open to listening to people from all walks of life. i always have been. i've always will be. talk to the, if people want to dough fa donate to me. they know i called them out on the mortgage market mess before the great crash happened. i always like to remind people it was not me, senator sanders who voted to deregulate swaps and derivatives which gavelyman
brothers extra leverage one of the contributing factors to their collapse which obviously contribute to what happened in the great recession. we could take these step by step and try to unwind them. it doesn't change the basic facts. people know where i stand. i have rolled out. toughest, effective effort to rein in financial abuse of anybody in the campaign. it goa goes further than dodd frank and glass steegle, and goes into shadow banking, hedge funds, carried interest loophole. that is full disclosure. i am on the record. if somebody in one of the firms wants to give me money. hope they know they're giving money to someone that makes sure they never wreck the economy again. >> the cbs overnight news will be right back. ♪

for republicans the new hampshire primary has become a race to see who will come in second. donald trump has a wild lead. john kasich leapfrogged marco rubio who had a tough time in the weekend's gop debate. >> let's dispel with the fiction. let's dispel with this fikts that barack obama doesn't know what he is doing. he knows exactly what he is doing. the bottom line. the notion that barack obama doesn't know what he is doing. he knows exactly what he is doing. >> there it is. the memorized, 25 second speech. there it is. >> both rubio and trump took questions from charlie, gayle and nora. >> we wanted to replay your best lines from the debate saturday
night. want to give you the opportunity. rather than repeating that about president obama why not discuss the charge lodged against you that you are eloquent but don't have the experience to be president. >> my experience is understood all. all over the website. i was the speaker of the florida house. imminent domain abuse stopped in florida because of me. despite the fact the democrats controlled the senate, i have accomplished things in the senate, restrictions on hezbollah, the effort for the bailout, the va accountability. but the core out campaign is that statement. i am going to continue to say it. barack obama is deliberately carrying out a strategy to change america. he wants to redefine the country. one of the main reasons i am running. one of the reasonize feel so good about our debate performance. despite whatever the media people want to say. the biggest fund-raising night we have had in all the details. so i feel great. we will say the truth. barack obama is systematically
trying to carry out an effort to change the country. this election is important. need to stop that from continuing. >> you understand the criticism no doubt that president obama was a one-term senator he can give a good speech but hasn't turned out to be a good president is the charge. >> yeah, barack obama has seven years of presidential experience. as the bad today as he was in the first year. if experience was the issue. after seven years of presidential experience he would have improved. the issue is he is carrying out an effort to chaining the country to make it like the rest of the world. obama care was not an accident. dodd frank was not an accident. the deal with iran was not an accident they may have been incompetent how they manage government daily basis. in terms of the policies they're improving. these are strategies to redefine the role of the government and the country and that's one of main reasons i'm running. if we continue on the road it will deny our children to live in the grapte egreatest country.
i hope they keep replaying the lines. >> all right. lot of people are wondering abut your strategy on that. let's move on. you said coming out of iowa. you were the guy, marco rubio. marco rubio. after the debate. he took a big fall. how do you feel about your debate performance? how are you feeling going into new hampshire? >> i feel great about it. vo voters across the country and here in new hampshire got to hear me say repeatedly the truth. barack obama is trying to redefine the role of our government in the country and america's role in the world. the evidence, we raised more money in the first hour of the debate than any other debate. we feel great. end of the day. new hampshire voters among the most serious voters in the country if not the most. they look at issues. underlying factors. they've want candidates that don't just know. have a plan and strategy moving forward. that's what we built our campaign on it. the dividend it will pay in 24
hours. >> senator, can i ask you, your campaign is taking heat for a mailer you send, pac sent. jeb bush wearing a crown alluding to members of his family including his mother, barbara bush. donald trump derided him for asking his mommy for help. should barbara bush be off-limits in the campaign. do you denounce the mailer that your pac sent. >> i haven't seen the mailer. second not from my campaign. third, we are at a stage where i had close to $35 million of adds run against me. many from jeb bush's super back. down to the final moments. i have tremendous respect for the bush family, jeb, no matter what happens in the campaign. i will have admiration, respect, for him. this is not about him, his family. about america. . future of the country. what kind of country this is going to be in the 21st century. >> we feel very good. did well in iowa.
strong second. would have come in first had the votes not shifted from ben which was a terrible thing that was done to ben carson in my opinion. frankly i think we are doing really well in new hampshire. talking about a snowstorm tomorrow. not what i want. >> you want a big turnout. >> i want a big turnout. snowstorms generally don't help. >> boy, looks like. >> we are doing really well. we watched the debate. seemed look you and jeb bush go into it. he stepped up his attacks on you. >> well, you know he is trying to show he is a tough guy. he is not. he is the opposite. he spent $25 million on adds against me. $100 million on his campaign. it has the gone nowhere. you know, very stiff guy. sort of sad to watch if you want to know the truth. spent a lot of money on ad. then goes into the debate. he is stuff about imminent domain. came out that his family is
