votes of the 2016 presidential campaign. "early today" starts right now. good morning. i' gigi stone woods. today is the day after months of shaking hands, giving speeches, not to mention more than 60,000 tv ads iowa voters will make their voices heard in the race caucuses and the race apeers closer than ever. the final poll shows donald trump ahead of ted cruz by only five points. the democratic side is even tighter. hillary clinton ahead of bernie sanders by just 3%, a dead heat within the margin of error. although not everything's rosy for front-runner, the unfavor built average shows three out of every five americans, 60% view trump unfavorably. that's the highest presidential rating for a presidential candidate since 1992 while hillary clinton currently has the highest. 52% of americans have a negative
i guess what they say, love and hate are synonymous are true on this. on the plus side clinton did get a huge endorsement over "the new york times" which calls the secretary of state, quote, one of the the most brotdly and deeply qualified presidential candidates in modern history. the paper also endorses john kasich. quote, even though he's the underdog he's the only plausible choice for the republicans. clinton continued her push late last night making her appearance on stage with husband bill and daughter chelsea normally who stump separately while bernie sanders continues to garner support from younger voters and raise money. the campaign announced it raised $20 million in january alone and says lit have enough funds to stay in the race for the long haul. they tell nbc news they expect to be close. nbc's kristen welker is in iowa with more. >> reporter: it's the home
sanders blanketing iowa, a fight for the number one spot in a race likely to be a photo finish. >> monday nietght could be a historic night for this country. we can make history. >> let's start a storm of a future we make together. >> reporter: just hours before clinton and sanders in a dead heed. 42% to 45% in the polling. teams of volunteers and organizers knocking on doors one last time making sure every supporter knows two things, where their caucus location is and how they'll get there. and the clinton campaign allowing nbc aen exclusive lieu at their specially developed app which is like a caucus night calculator.
process and allow our precinct captains move through the processes. they're spending less time calculating and more time persuading. >> the clinton campaign anticipated 125,000 doors knocked alone. sanders' ground team equally impressive, 76,000 door knocks, 15,000 volunteers. clinton still playing defense like when she was secretary of state. >> i just have to point out some of the timing and leaks that leadled up to it are concerning. >> sanders who's reluctant to weigh in on the issue spoke on "meet the press." >> this is serious. clinton. americans will have to make their judgment. >> who are you supporting? >> bernie sanders. >> why hillary clinton. >> i honestly thinks she has the most experience and can do the
>> nbc's kristen welker reporting. make sure you tune in on thursday for the democratic debate on msnbc. now, with polling tight donald trump and ted cruz continue to escalate their attacks on one another as both candidates attended church in a last effort to court voters there. nbc's hallie jackson reports. >> reporter: in the final crunch before the caucus, even church becomes a campaign stop, but this sunday's signs of piece giving way to the campaign battle. >> donald trump supports expanding obamacare to make it full on medicine like bernie sanders. >> look. ted cruz is a total lie yar. i'm so against obamacare, i'm going to repeal and replace obamacare. >> reporter: trump still looking strong -- >> i'd like to win iowa. i'm doing really well with the evangelicals in iowa.
know support from christian conservatives could be the deciding factor. about six in ten caucusgoers identify as evangelicals. if the same polling turns out, this race will be a dead heat. >> what's going to be important for you in that caucus room? >> i think the most important thing when i go to a caucus, i want somebody that obviously shares the same values as i have as a christian, as a bible believer. >> reporter: pastors at new hope church clear on what they want in a nominee and clear on what they don't. >> i'm disappointed that people will tell us when they get to washington they're going to do this. i'm disappointed that the republicans and democrats can't work together to make better laws that reach across the aisle and that benefit all americans. >> reporter: that frustration, one of the biggest factors fueling outsiders like trump and cruz here.
parties, although i have faith that it in marco that it can be corrected. >> reporter: they're all ready for a race. >> the real thing that matters is the poll. it's necessarily what we do and not necessarily what the media tells us to do. >> nbc's hallie jackson reporting. late yesterday we got one more memorable moment, the ted cruz campaign bus got stuck in the mud. it had bernie sanders campaign insiders say if more than 2,000 show up like they did in 2008, sanders will win. there's a storm coming. nbc's bill karins is here with more. is it going to stop the caucusgoers? >> not directly. maybe indirectly. people may choose to prepare for
