7:01 am
the safe. >> the severe weather threat focusing on the southeast atlantic coast to the mid-atlantic coast. >> we love nevada! thank you. >> donald trump easily winning the nevada caucuses leaving rubio and cruz far beyond. >> if donald became president, nobody knows what the heck he would do. nobody knows what the heck he would do. >> sanders went after clinton over her wall street speeches. >> i am happy to release all of my paid speeches to wall street. here it is, chris, there ain't none. 14 cases may have been sexually transmitted. republicans are blasting the plan to close guantanamo bay. >> this is what i think of the president's plan to send terrorists to the united states. in new york, two window washers had to be plucked from the country's tallest hotel. >> they're fine.
7:02 am
cheese in connecticut. at one point there were up to 12 people fighting. the next generation of robots looks so much like humans, it's kind of scary. >> oh, no! >> oh! >> i just threw that up. i threw that up. and all that matters. >> bernie sanders who's had trouble attracting african-american voters got a high-profile endorsement from spike lee. >> for bernie's sake, i hope it's more effective than spike lee's other endorsements. on "cbs this morning." and the pope was terrific but he heard one side of the story, the following day he couldn't have been nicer. >> the vatican spokesman clarified the pope wasn't attack attacking trump. >> at this point, just paint him into the sistine chapel. this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota, let's go

morning." donald trump is now on a three-state winning streak after his big victory in nevada bulling more momentum toward the republican nomination. after a turbulent night of voting, trump won the nevada caucuses with 46% of the vote. >> marco rubio finished second just ahead of ted cruz and senator rubio will join us in just a moment. first, dean reynolds is outside caesar's palace in las vegas to show us how trump won big again. good morning. >> donald trump got more votes than marco rubio and ted cruz combined and got them by winning nearly every category of voter according to our cbs news entrance poll. when trump took the stage last night, he was pumped. >> we will be celebrating for a long time tonight. have a good time. have a good time. >> reporter: celebrating his big night in nevada, donald trump declared victory across the board. >> we won with young.
7:04 am
we won with highly educated. we win with poorly educated. i love the poorly educated. number one with hispanics. i'm really happy about that. >> reporter: trump rejected the notion he has a ceiling of support and laughed at conservatives who are calculating how he could lose. >> and if you could add them up, because you know, the other candidates amount to 55%. so if they could just -- they keep forgetting that when people drop out we're going to get a lot of votes. they keep forgetting. they don't say it. >> reporter: long lines pointed to a big turnout for trump. entrance polls showed nearly 60% of caucusgoers said they were angry at the federal government and more than 60% said they wanted the next president to come from outside the political system. >> one week from today, will be the most important night of this campaign. >> reporter: looking past his third place finish, ted cruz
7:05 am
focused on super tuesday. and his home state of texas, arguing he's the only remaining candidate who can dethrone the front-runner. >> the only campaign that has beaten donald trump and the only campaign that can beat donald trump is this campaign. >> thank you. >> reporter: leaving nevada before caucusing began, marco rubio watched the rules from michigan. where he urged voters to look beyond emotion. >> we can't just elect someone that's angry. we have to elect someone that will make a difference and someone that will win. >> reporter: early reports of voting irregularities, people being turned away at the caucus sites, or some double voting appear to have been overblown. the republican national committee called the procedure controlled chaos. and the ballots were very confusing as well. allowing voters to choose from
7:06 am
fact, six of them are no longer even running. >> thank you, dean. this is a question, what will it take to stop donald trump? it all comes down to the delegates. republican voters in 11 states will hand out almost 00 delegates on super tuesday. cbs news election director anthony salvanto is here to take a look at that. can donald trump mathematically be stopped? >> mathematically, yes, gayle but politically it's going to get a lot harder. after last night's big win in nevada donald trump has a commanding 81-17 delegate lead over cruz and rubio over what's been given out so far. on super tuesday, we're going to see 595 delegates in play. now, they're mainly across the south. those states are full of the kinds of voters that donald trump has been winning so far, like conservatives and evangelicals. so if he keeps up this pace, then he's going to have at least 281 delegates coming out of super tuesday.
7:07 am
out those delegates proportionately, that means based on how many votes you get, not whether you win or lose. that macs it even harder for everyone else to catch him. there is still time. it takes over 1,200 delegates to win and further down the road on march 15th, there are big delegate prizes in states like florida and ohio. those states are winner take all. the question for folks like cruz and rubio is, can they hang on that long? charlie? >> thanks, anthony. florida senator, republican presidential candidate marco rubio is with us from grand rapids, michigan. senator, good morning. >> good morning. >> congratulations on your second place showing in nevada. many people are asking this question this morning, as the group narrows, as the establishment so-called makes endorsements, is it simply too little too late to stop donald
7:08 am
especially if he does very well on the super tuesday voting? >> the republican nomination is decided by delegates, over 1,200 delegates you need to have. we're nowhere near that number, much less being able to win them. in that sense, the votes that are happening between now and the 15th, before the 15th, all these states are awarding delegates proportionately. it's not based on the states you pick up, it's based on the delegates you pick up. there are plenty of states in the winner take all category, if you win them, you more than catch up. what needs to happen is this race needs to continue to narrow. donald trump, for example, he underperformed mitt romney in nevada yesterday. four years ago, mitt romney got over 50% of the vote there. it shows there's a significant number of republican, even in nevada who do not want donald trump to be their nominee. it's divided up among four people right now. >> you have yet to beat him,
7:09 am
your home state of florida shows you're not even beating him in your own home state. at what point, what state do you think you'll be the one to trump donald trump? >> well, we'll win in florida. now that governor bush is no longer in the race, him and i split up a lot of the support in florida. that will help us. again, as far as going into next week, we feel great about almost every state that's on the map. there has to be a coalescing here. that process began after south carolina. i think it will continue after your second place showing in nevada last night. we're going to keep working hard. we're in michigan already, headed to houston, texas for the debate tomorrow and the rally today. >> senator rubio, we keep hearing that the party doesn't want him but the people sure tell a different story in terms of how they feel about donald trump. have you asked jeb bush for his endorsement? >> well, first of all, the people in every state that's voted, the overwhelming majority, including last night,
7:10 am
it's divided up among four other people. that's helping him right now. i've spoken to governor bush. we haven't discussed an endorsement. we're friends and i look forward to visiting with him soon. >> one of your opponents, senator cruz this week said that he would have federal agents knock on the doors to find those who are in this country illegally. would you follow that? >> yes, that's a change of position for him, obviously now that he's under duress in this campaign and trying to change his positions once again in order to appeal and win votes. the bottom line is, i don't think this country supports and do i not military style tactics. i think we'll enforce the law. there are people that will be deported. there are people being deported here now. if you are here illegally and you have a deportation order, you'll be deported, especially if you're a dangerous criminal.
7:11 am
a military-style roundup of he people in america. we need to secure our border and bring illegal immigration under control. the american people will be reasonable and responsible. how do you deal with someone who's been in this country a long time and is not a criminal? >> senator rubio, thank you very much for joining u. thank you. the democratic road to super tuesday still has to get through south carolina. hillary clinton and bernie sanders reached out to voters. the town hall there last night. polls show hillary clinton still holds a lead, three days before the primary. nancy cordes is in columbia, south carolina where clinton faced new questions about her use of a private e-mail system as secretary of state. nancy, good morning. >> good morning. yes, she was asked about a new ruling by a federal judge who said that some state department officials and even her own aides should testify under oath about whether they set up her private e-mail system to evade public record laws. she said there's no basis for it. >> i know there are challenges about what the state department
7:12 am
that will all be worked out. it's just not something that, you know, is going to have any lasting effect. >> reporter: clinton was also asked again whether she would release transcripts of her wall street speeches. >> why is there one standard for me and not for everybody else, chris? everybody should be on a level playing field. >> reporter: sanders was asked if he'd be willing to level the playing field. >> i am very happy to release all of my paid speeches to wall street. here it is, chris. there ain't none. >> reporter: in a state where african-americans make up a majority of the democratic electorate, sanders accused the republican front-runner of racism. >> of this birther issue which we heard from donald trump and others. a racist effort to try to delegitimize the president of the united states. can you imagine that? >> you're making the right choice. >> reporter: earlier clinton appeared at an emotional gathering in a columbia church. >> we sat 14 times.
7:13 am
the mother of five victims of gun violence or police brutality whose support should cultivated for months, including the mother of sandra bland. >> i am very angry, but i'm not angry enough to riot. i'm angry enough to vote for this lady. >> reporter: and the mother of trayvon martin. >> we have an opportunity to have someone that's going to stand up for us as women. i say my vote goes to hillary clinton. >> reporter: and those five women are taking that message all across the state doing multiple events throughout the day without hillary clinton and getting huge crowds. senator sanders is spending most of the week outside of south carolina in super tuesday states where he, charlie, thinks he has a better chance of winning. >> thanks so much. severe weather is tearing across the south, a series of disruptive tornadoes killed at least three people. the violent storms left a trail

skakel was convicted in 2002 for moxley's death. >> i'm praying that i can find justice for martha. >> reporter: the case has been a roller coaster for the skakel and moxley families and has remained in a spotlight, partly, because skakel is the nephew of ethyl kennedy, robert f. kennedy's widow. skakel's new criminal defense lawyer says the family dynamic has brought unwanted attention. kennedy family. >> reporter: but skakel's cousin, attorney robert kennedy jr., fought for years to get the conviction overturned. >> i am utterly convinced he did not do the crime. >> reporter: the 2013 appeal centered on skakel's attorney mickey sherman provided a confident defense. skakel testified his former lawyer was more interested in his own public profile. >> he was hanging out with the press. he said he was a media hoar. >> reporter: the judge agreed

7:36 am
>> reporter: surprised but there is medical literature showing a zika virus can be transmitted and present in sperm and been around several years so it's not new, but i think the number of cases this early on when zika is in the u.s. is a very small amount is surprising. >> what does it mean? >> well, what it means is that we have been giving warnings to women, volunteer traveling and especially if you're going to get pregnant. now what it means is we have shown or certificates have shown zika in sperm for up to 60 days and so what it means is anybody traveling in those regions and having sex, they need to have protection or abstain from sex. it. >> you're right. many people may have no symptoms of zika. we don't know if they can have zika virus in their sperm and not documented but especially possible with the new cases. zika virus is, obviously, here in the united states. as mosquito season comes in the gulf coast it will spread dramatically.
7:37 am
when it first broke it was about pregnant women and now talking about men and sexually transmitted disease. >> you remember the '80s? we were worried about hiv at the time. their travel history. virus. we need to accelerate vaccines. you need to be very careful if somebody you're considering having sex with had travel to south america or a place where there is the zika virus. >> what is a diplomatic way to ask that question? >> you'll have to ask charlie on that one. >> i cannot get an answer. do mosquitoes have any redeeming value? >> well, only women mosquitoes -- >> only women mosquitoes sting or bite you. >> men don't bite? >> you're right. we can eliminate all of the mosquitoes but the frogs will be upset. ecosystem out there. once you hit one thing, other things are affected also. mosquitoes have killed more people in this world than --
7:38 am
the planet. >> they are? >> yes. mosquitoes are. i have 8-year-olds and 7-year-olds and how i know this. mosquitoes are the most dangerous animal on the planet. >> one more thing to worry about. >> thank you, dr. david agus. from apps or alarm clocks or flas the ginormous hit musical called "hamilton." we will be right back. and plane tickets and shoes? you would turn an intimidating process into an easy one. you could get a mortgage on your phone. and if it could be that easy, wouldn't more people buy homes?

8:03 am
>> you have people like the koch brothers, second wealthiest family in this country. they and a few of their billionaire friends are going to spend $900 million on this campaign. i think that stinks. i think that's undermining american democracy. >> we have serious challenges. and i think it's important for people, particularly for white people, to be honest about those and to recognize that our experiences may not equip us to understand what a lot of our african-american fellow citizens go through every single day. >> my dad as i mentioned, came from poland. i'm running for president. guess what? nobody has asked for my birth certificate. maybe it's the color of my skin. i don't know. >> clinton heard stephen colbert react to a cbs news interview where scott pelley asked clinton if she ever lied. >> you're asking me to say -- have i ever -- i don't believe i
8:04 am
i don't believe i ever will. i'll do the best i can to level with the american people. >> how can you be that bad ass? just say no. just say no. even richard nixon knew to say i am not a crook. he didn't say it has always been my intention as far as i believe, i will do the best i cannot to be a crook. will you lie is the home run of campaign questions. you just say no and then touch all the bases. >> is that a question you'd like another shot at answering? >> i'll just say no. >> with three days left before the primary, clinton leads the polls in south carolina. have you ever told a lie? >> and has her sense of humor intact. >> have you ever told a lie. >> yes. >> have you? >> yes, i have. >> have you? >> so have i. >> the polls go the it right in

8:06 am
his latest article suggests that donald trump's outsider status is helping him stay ahead. mike lupica. >> have you ever told a lie. >> yes. >> just want to keep the record going. >> didn't she sound when scott pelley asked her that question, all i could think of was the day somebody said to tom brady, are you a cheater and he said, i don't think so. the answer is no. >> the answer is no. you could lie without knowing you lied. >> yes. but then, charlie, it becomes a definition of what is a lie. >> we're not going there, are we? >> you've known donald trump for a long time. >> yes. >> what is it about donald trump that you think has connected in 2016. >> charlie, i don't think he knew how angry people were about not just congress but the president as well. so he tapped into something that i think was more profound than
8:07 am
and every time i've interviewed him throughout this process, he always says the same thing, come on, aren't you a little bit surprised? i would always say, yes, yes. listen, if somebody told you eight years ago that a first term senator, african-american from illinois was going to take on the clinton machine and beat them you would have said, yeah, right. this is way more surprising than that. >> here's the point, too. it is within his dna the ability to capitalize on the anger. >> yes. and i'll tell you something else he does. it's been interesting to watch. he will find your weakest point and attack it. okay? and he'll listen to three hours and he'll seize on the one thing he can use. when hillary clinton called him sexist. he put her husband into play at warp speed. and when jeb bush thought he was going to bring his brother out of the bull pen, like the first
8:08 am
went right after him on iraq. >> and called jeb low energy which went right to a quality seem to sense. >> jeb bush, if you would ask me at the start of this thing to bet my own money i would have bet on jeb bush. way back before trump came down. >> most people would have. >> now you look at him and he's like the nice boy with his book bag and his lunch money walking to school and he's almost at school and he thinks it's going to be a great day at school and then this guy is waiting for him on the street corner. >> do you think donald trump will be the nominee? >> i do. i do. i think that the only way that he doesn't is if cruz pulls out of the race. my wife was saying the other day, why doesn't cruz pull out? honey, he thinks he's still going to be president rube. rubio, i think is the only one that would possibly have an avenue. my favorite thing is the second and third place finishers declaring victory. it's my favorite. as a child of the south, it
8:09 am
panthers going home after the super bowl and throwing themselves a victory parade. >> to be fair to them, this is a game of proportional math at this stage of the race. they aring traing in terms of proportional delegates. the interesting people are looking at this, even if you give trump the same percentage march 1st and march 15th, he's on the path to getting the 1,200 delegates even with that slice. >> the only one who has a chance now is rubio, no matter the metric you look at. >> he'd have to sweep florida and ohio. >> he has to win something. he can't make any case to himself to the american people that the second place finishes somehow make him the odds on in november. >> just a capping point about expectations. it is expectations that allows people to declare themselves a second. >> but ted cruz the other night history tonight. i'm thinking, what kind of history?
8:10 am
you can't walk a block without running into a while evangelical. >> thank you, mike. >> okay. >> are you done? >> well, no. >> no, no, no, mike, we're delighted you're here. just kidding. >> that's fine. >> it's a clock, not you. >> that's not welcoming. >> it wasn't hostile. >> it wasn't welcoming. >> mike, you need a hug. >> some are calling it the black oscars. >> kasich, where are you?
