7:02 am
baton rouge where the sheriff's office took these photos. students got caught up. they put them on a truck and couldn't get the truck through the flash flooding so had to rescue them off there. thankfully everybody okay but a lot of this fueled from the recommendmnants of patricia. mississippi, alabama. this morning mostly west florida up to southern indiana and ohio where the storm is but will move quickly into pennsylvania, new york, washington, d.c. will get it by tomorrow morning and out of here but it drops up to 3 inches of rain especially in some of the higher elevations. i'll be back talking about snow on the west coast in just a couple of minutes so don't go anywhere. >> 3 inches of rain. the race for president. "your voice, your vote" and counting down to the next big republican debate tomorrow night. a new poll in iowa shows ben carson opening up a double-digit lead on donald trump while jeb bush tries to get back in the game with help from his family. abc's tom llamas has all the latest. good morning, tom. >> reporter: let's take a look
7:03 am
you can see dr. ben carson with a commanding lead over trump, 32% to 18%. not only that, carson is the first or second choice for 51% of likely voters in that critical state. new motivation for trump to highlight the difference between himself and carson at tomorrow's debate. for months donald trump seemed unstoppable, but this morning with more proof his campaign is struggling in iowa. now three polls showing dr. ben carson is the new front-runner in the hawkeye state. >> i'm number two in iowa. i said, i don't believe it. one's bloomberg, they hate me. the other one is a super liberal newspaper "the des moines register" which is third rate. >> reporter: trump not ready to surrender his position describing the former neurosurgeon as sleepy. >> perfectly fine as i've said many times. there have been many times when i've operated for 12, 15, 18, 20 hours.
7:04 am
>> reporter: this morning, trump dealing with more than just a surging carson, some pointing out trump who celebrated his wealth on the campaign trail by signing dollar bills may be too out of touch with middle and working class voters after saying this. >> i started off in brooklyn. my father gave me a small loan of a million dollars. >> trump defending it saying a million isn't very much compared to what he's built. one of trump's rivals jeb bush struggling with finances would love a million bucks right now. bush huddled with family and loyal donors at this texas hotel trying to's assure them that experience will trump the outsider. bush has said his 91-year-old father is so mad about trump, he sometimes throws shoes at the tv when he's on. when he threw out the first pitch at a recent playoff game, his wife barbara had a campaign sticker right on her walker. and going back to those poll numbers out of iowa many credit the carson surge to his numbers with evangelical, voters connecting with carson.
7:05 am
that helped the last two republican winners, rick santorum and mike huckabee who are still in the race, as well. >> lagging behind. thanks. let's talk to matt dowd right now. our political analyst and start out with donald trump behind carson in iowa. see him going after carson, his low energy and raising questions about his religion, will this work? >> i think this is a unique territory for donald trump because he's now in second place in a state the first time in over 100 days and he's never faced this before. he's also never faced somebody like ben carson in this and his ability to attack him in the same way he attacked jeb bush and others. ben carson doesn't respond. what donald trump doesn't want to become is the frank burns to a trapper john who is the doctor at "m.a.s.h.." that's what he has to fear. >> he started out as the front-runner, jeb bush, and now in the middle of the pack. what went wrong? >> i think the premise of his campaign was probably off from the beginning. i think jeb bush's problem is
7:06 am
bush part is that people don't, many republicans like the bush family but do not want bush as a third term and his performance has been underwhelming by most counts. at the last two debates and even underwhelming. he has to change that. that's why the debate coming up is so important. >> his team is starting to raise questions about marco rubio, calling him the gop obama. >> yeah, it's interesting to me. this is a brash young rookie like in "any given sunday" taking on the aging quarterback and they don't like it at all. this he thought this was their time and this other senator is taking on terms and becoming more popular, is both personally upsetting and may impact the race. >> matthew dowd, thanks very much. robin. >> we turn to a dramatic new detail from that whale watching tour that left at least five people dead. one person is still missing and abc's neal karlinsky is on the scene for us on vancouver island.

7:08 am
you can just make out the name "leviathan ii" and towed it off into the cove and the rcmb has been guarding it and have had divers in the water as well. five british citizens never made it out alive. a sixth person remains missing but 21 people did survive the 30 minutes of hell in 55-degree water not knowing if anyone would come for them. officials from the whale watching company that has run tours in these waters for 20 years don't understand what went wrong. >> again, we are all deepened saddened this has happened. our sincerest thoughts and prayers to everyone affected by this. the cause remains unknown and investigations are ongoing and survivors said it seemed to go down without any warning at all. >> thanks. the latest on the battle against isis. president obama set to decide whether to put more troops closer to the battle even on the ground in syria and abc's chief global affairs correspondent martha raddatz in washington with the details. good morning, martha.
7:09 am
>> reporter: good morning, george. the administration is weighing a number of options that could expose our troops to more danger. one option is using forward air controllers on the ground to call in air strikes that makes it easier to find and confirm targets and "the washington post" is reporting that the president will also consider putting a small team of special operations troops on the ground in syria with those moderate syrian rebels to advise and assist, george. >> martha, this comes after the death of one of those troops in that raid on the isis prison. >> in afghanistan and could be very similar. the options in iraq and syria would not on paper put the u.s. forces in direct combat but as possibility, george. >> okay. much. >> all right, and now to that deadly homecoming parade crash in oklahoma. the driver is now being held on $1 million bond. abc's ryan owens is in stillwater, oklahoma, with the latest. good morning, ryan.

7:11 am
until they show me proof. >> reporter: her boyfriend said she was not impaired when she left for work at this local restaurant. >> i've never seen her take any prescription medication, never used drugs. >> reporter: the district attorney says chambers will be charged with four counts of second degree murder. one each for the retired professor and his wife, the mba student and 2-year-old boy who lost their lives. the judge ordered a psychological evaluation. her attorney says she's mentally ill and doesn't remember the crash. >> i said of the people you collided with, four were killed. and she's like, okay. and that was it. >> reporter: in court the prosecutor told the judge that another victim of this crash is in very grave condition at the hospital and that it's quite possible a fifth murder charge is on the way. george. >> my goodness, okay, ryan, thanks very much.

guest: pc does what!? (through the door) pc does amazingly thin designs. pc does what no pc hasdone before. does yours? some cash back cards love to overcomplicate things. like limiting where you earn bonus cash back. why put up with that? but the quicksilver card from capital one likes to keep it simple. real simple. i'm talking easy like-a- walk-in-the-park, nothing-to-worry-about, man-that-feels-good simple. quicksilver earns you unlimited 1.5% cash back on every purchase, everywhere. it's a simple question. what's in your wallet? dunkin' donuts k-cups are available here at the grocery store.
7:22 am
and people seem to be really excited about it. like, really excited. have a good one. new dunkin' donuts k-cup pods are here, available where you buy groceries. i sure had a lot on my mind when i got out of the hospital after a dvt blood clot. what about my family? my li'l buddy? and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital but i wondered if this was the right treatment for me. then my doctor told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness.
7:23 am
while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. let's start in oregon. timberline lodge, a half inch or a dusting, doesn't sound that exciting but it is when you have

>> when you see 33,000 steps a year reeling to detective tires we know we have a serious tire problem and a good part of that relates to recalls. >> reporter: the ntsb investigation also looked at aged tires. safety engineers say depending on how they're maintained and used they can begin to lose their tread and separate after as little as six years. >> sometimes a consumer will look at a tire and not know that there is an aging problem because the aging problem is not necessarily visible. >> reporter: but no current law or industry standard prevents the sale of aged tires. and an abc news investigation last year found plenty of them for sale described as perfectly safe. in new york, 8 1/2-year-old tires. in rhode island, 9-year-old tires, in san francisco, tires that were 11 and 15 years old. >> unbelievable, brian. >> yes, indeed. ford, gm and chrysler recommend tires six years older and more be replaced. but what happens is you get a
7:43 am
tire like this and you do a test. you put a coin -- >> old school. >> our dads used to say that. >> heads above that's fine. this tire is ten years old and would be considered unsafe by many. only way to find it. you have a code right here, 410 a. >> what is that? >> that means it was made in the 41st week of 2005 so it's ten years old but unless you know that code you have no way to figure it out and sometimes you have to climb under the car to find it. >> why don't they just put the date. >> very good question. very difficult for drivers, consumers to know how old their tires are and they should. >> i have an old car i keep in connecticut. it has original tires. i am looking for that. >> 20 years. >> yes. >> get new tires. beer taken to a whole new level. three people buried alive on live tv. come on back. to the used car buyer who's worried about getting taken for a ride... don't worry. the only rides you'll get taken on at carmax

8:09 am
entertainer is calling a foul on low pay. former milwaukee bucks cheerleader lauren herington filing a lawsuit against the team for allegedly being paid less than minimum wage. >> they hold you to such a high standard but yet that's what they pay you so it is kind of disheartening and they expect you to put in so much time and so much effort for it. >> reporter: in the suit, the first of its kind in the nba, herington says dancing for the bucks was more like a full time job with part-time pay. and that during the 2013/'14 season she spent hours practicing, prepping and performing. but was paid only $65 per home game, 30 for practices and 50 for special appearances which she claims was an average of $3 to $5 an hour for the time she worked. well below wisconsin's 7.25 minimum wage. also claiming she was paid nothing for the required maintenance. >> they didn't pay for the haircuts, the nails, the tanning.
8:10 am
we're dealing with women that are 19, 20, 21 years old really don't have the resources to pay for those things. >> reporter: the nfl faced similar claims last year when a former cheerleader sued the oakland raiders, suits against the buffalo bill, the jets, the tampa bay buccaneers and the cincinnati bengals followed. the bills and the jets suits are still pending while the others have settled. >> you hear the allegations that some of these women are not even getting minimum wage, i don't think that there's any fan in the country who would say that that's fair. >> reporter: in a statement, the milwaukee bucks tell abc news, we treat all of our employees fairly including our bucks dancers and pay them fairly and in compliance with federal and state law. the nba also telling us overnight, we work with our teams to ensure that they comply with all applicable wage and working condition laws. now, herington is seeking back pay for hours worked but not paid for. her lawyer says another woman has joined the suit and that
8:11 am
several others are also considering joining so, george, we could really see this grow. >> we sure could. mara, thanks very much. moving on now, "dancing with the stars," halloween came early last night. there were some scary good performance, unfortunately, one couple had to get the axe. hayes and emma join us live in a moment. jesse with the action. >> the vampires and werewolves were out for blood on the dance floor last night or at least high scores. take a look. come with us not. >> reporter: spook-tacular spectacles. things getting hairy on halloween night on "dancing with the stars". wake me up inside >> that was franken sexy, boy. >> reporter: with only five weeks left in the competition, bindi tapping into her spooky side for fright night. holding the reign atop the leaderboard with a perfect score. >> that was an argentine tango

8:13 am
i was able to go out with a bang. it was nice to win the team dance. that was good and end derek's streak. had a lot of fun and i had an amazing partner and took a lot away from is. >> emma was your best friend, you said. what did you learn working with her. >> how to dance. >> british slang. >> a lot of british slang for sure but she's been great. i couldn't ask for a better partner. >> he really came along, didn't he? >> oh, so much. i think out of everything on the show it's kind of safe to say he had the most improvement. i took someone with absolutely no dance experience and he like showed me that he can really progress and i'm really, really happy. this whole season has been amazing. i adore him. >> now all ready for the prom. in yeah, i mean, i got a little more than an average prom from "dancing with the stars" but it was fun. >> also i think you're the youngest male ever, what, 15. so do you think that, worked against him, for him. >> i think it worked for him. i think that he had so much energy that i actually had to
8:14 am
stop him from like climbing up the walls sometimes. yeah. so it really helped him in rehearsal he didn't peak. he was with me the whole time. he had a lot of focus so for that i think it was an advantage. >> what was the high point for you, hayes? >> boy, there's definitely ups and downs with being my age and whatnot so you discuss kind of find your advantages and use them and frankly, i think having emma as my partner she used me and my age and my demographic to my advantage and had a great time on "dancing with the stars" and made some really great memories. >> i bet you did and have to ask about the switchup star. the broken nose. what happened there. >> i felt so bad, honestly like and when they took him to the hospital it was just awful. i basically turned and i just clipped him with my elbow and we heard this awful just crack like sound, oh, i was devastated. but he was still -- we're still
8:15 am
close, we're still great friends and i'm glad he doesn't hate me. >> he has you go on this date maybe. >> we did go on a date, yeah. we'll see. >> he danced with a broken nose. >> i should because i'm kind of broke his nose. >> okay. who's going to go all the way? >> i want to see alek go all the way. >> you got to root for the people you become close with in the season and i became close to carlos. i got to give it to him. he's doing really well. >> a little split right there. great to have you guys on. "dancing with the stars" is on monday at 8:00, 7:00 central right here on abc. now over to amy. >> all right, george. thank you now to our series "modern romance." and an important question, is facebook helping or hurting your relationship? well, we asked you to share some of your relationship goals and got a wide range of responses making it clear that now more than ever what we say and do online is changing how we live our romantic lives.
8:16 am
let's face it social media makes it hard to remain anonymous. >> okay, so after a quick scan of his facebook, tumblr and instagram and pinterest here's what i know. >> even getting the hashtag treatment and researchers began to ask what effect does social media have on our love lives? >> if i have tagged you and say i love you, you're tagging yourself in front of all of your friends and all of their friends and family. >> reporter: some of the biggest negative factors include stalking, distrust and jealousy but social media is still such a new phenomenon that only a handful of studies have been done and the results decidedly mixed. >> definitely take all of these studies on social media with a grain of salt. >> reporter: for example, one recent study looked at 205 facebook users between the ages of 18 and 82 finding in general that relationships soured for people who had been together for less than three years and had high levels of facebook use. however, another recent study
8:17 am
finds that pairs who share everything from their status to pictures on facebook could be in it for the long haul. all right, here with me now the author of the "the modern girl's guide to life," jane buckingham and can you explain that discrepancy? i mean, it seems to counter one another. does facebook or social media help or hurt a relationship? >> well, you know, the study had different criteria, different lengths of relationship, different ages so you have to be careful to see what they're based on. we did a study of 18 to 34-year-olds and what it said was that 81% of people said they were actually fine if their partner never posted about them. so, you know, i think that people really vary in how they feel. and they also said that 33%, they actually never do post about their relationship so i think some people are. more private than we think and you have to be careful about your relationship and some people want to be private about it.
8:18 am
having said that 48% of them did say that they do stalk other people's relationships on social media so they're looking to see if people are breaking up, what's going on. >> or comparing their relationship to others. >> yes, and i think that is one of the problems and when we look at sort of the dos and don'ts in your relationships that's actually one of the first don'ts which is don't try to keep up with the joneses because i think when you do that, you're always thinking, my partner is not as romantic. >> people usually only post the beautiful vacation photos and all the amazing things they're doing. >> exactly and it's cumulative so it's not just your life, it's everything's life. comparing it to so how could anybody keep up to that and it's impossible. >> no one is posting the fights. >> no. everybody's life is perfect on social media and your life seems really, really boring and then, you know i think one of other don'ts is that social media makes it so much easier frankly to be bad, to cheat. you know, the analogy i use like dieting. i could barely keep my hands off
8:19 am
if you download -- >> yeah, right, no, not yet. but if you download the bad apps and download the things that make it easier to have temptation in front of you, then you're going to be naughty so don't. >> there are some app recommendations you do have for couples online. these are interesting ones. i didn't know about them. >> one is fix a fight. if you get into a fight you can just sort of download it. now, look, it's not going to replace in person. if you're away or feeling like you're in trouble then you do that. you can look at the intensity, wasn't too bad, this one. and then there's another one called aftervocado where you send your spouse or partner a happy face. this i love. i'm obsessed with calendaring and calendarer with your partner and android, there's one called lockbox so on their lock screen you can send them a little heart. you can send them something to let them know that you're thinking about them. >> even if you don't have words, maybe you just have a heart or an emoji.
8:20 am
>> or a "hi." don't treat them like you do your co-worker or don't treat them like you do your best friend. don't do a dtg or winkie face. >> i don't even know what that means. >> don't do something that makes them feel like someone else. do something that makes them special. >> that in person thing can't be represent placated. jane, thanks. ginger, i'm saving candy for you. >> i see that temptation and i will bite. this is reagan from north thank you very much. good morning, i'm meteorologist bill evans. it's 8:23, and as you see we've

"pop news," everybody. sheeran. well, he is a good friend. i mean a really good friend. listen to what he did. he just opened up about his biggest hit revealing co-wrote "thinking out loud" with a childhood friend to help her with her financial troubles. his pal, amy, stopped by ed's house to ask him if he'd include a song they had written years ago on his upcoming album which is now out so that she could
8:22 am
