8:03 am
this morning, donald trump is heading to new hampshire and staying there till the voting is over on tuesday. >> you have the most beautiful churches i've seen. i mean, these churches, seriously. >> reporter: but overnight a quick stop in south carolina. >> i almost want to just go in and pray. >> reporter: trump hopes his last-minute new hampshire blitz will deliver a better result than iowa. his team of volunteers going door to door. >> we just wanted to send out a reminder, hand you a reminder and see if we can get your support for mr. trump on tuesday. >> reporter: and we're with them trudging through the snow. it's freezing. is it worth it? >> i think it's absolutely worth it. we have to take back our country and not let it be in the wreck that it's in. >> reporter: but ted cruz has a ground army of his own. >> hello. >> oh, wow. >> good morning. >> reporter: they're showing the type of dedication that helped cruz win in iowa. >> and i are walking around here is probably not going to change a lot of hearts and minds individually. >> reporter: you never know. >> if it's one vote it's worth it. >> reporter: senator cruz hoping
8:04 am
new hampshire voters. >> the reason the second amendment is in the bill of rights, each and every one of us has a god given right to defend our home, to defend our family and to defend our children. >> reporter: but cruz is feeling the pressure. rubio surging in the polls, the target on his back getting bigger. >> his record of accomplishment is slim. >> he's willing to break his word to the voters and make deals with democrats. >> we know who the boy in the bubble is up here. >> reporter: rubio feels the attacks are growing because his campaign is taking off. >> if you get a call on tuesday night saying that i dropped out, it isn't true. it's a lie, keep voting. >> reporter: now, rubio, of course, referring to the cruz campaign's effort on caucus day in iowa suggesting that dr. ben carson was dropping out of the race. that, of course, never happened and cruz later apologized to dr. carson. rubio's gone into this debate feeling that everyone will be out there to attack him. he did get a boost overnight, former rival and louisiana governor bobby jindal endorsing him. paula and dan.
8:05 am
tom llamas who's been covering this campaign every step of the way, tom, thank you. let's get some pregame analysis now with abc political analyst matthew dowd who is also right there in the debate hall. hey, matt, good morning. i guess my first question is how high are the stakes generally tonight? >> reporter: i mean, i think tonight is the most important event in the republican race up until this time. it sets everything up for super -- i mean for tuesday in new hampshire and this moment with all seven on stage, each of them has a huge stake in what's going to happen tonight. >> all right, so let's talk about what the individual candidates need to do tonight. trump is leading in the polls but others have been gaining on him, so how does he maintain poll position? >> reporter: i think donald trump, he needs to make sure that -- he's about ten points up right now. he needs to make sure he stays there and i think one of the ways to do that, be strong but he actually needs to deliver in a very calm and steady way, not in the manner he's done in previous debates but straightforward but exceedingly calm and cool.
8:06 am
and marco rubio got the best bounce out of iowa. polls. what do you think his strategy face of the inevitable attacks from his rivals? >> reporter: well, you know, it's interesting, marco rubio finished third in iowa, but he stepped all over ted cruz who finished first in iowa, and ted cruz hasn't gotten any lift out of iowa. i think marco rubio something is going to be under assault by everybody on that stage especially the governors or former governors trying to figure out a way to move on from here. i think what you'll see tonight is basically everybody knows that there's only four tickets out of new hampshire so of those seven on stage only four are going to be able to get out of here once tuesday voting starts. >> as you said, stakes incredibly high, matthew dowd, we appreciate your analysis on saturday morning. >> then there would be four. as we head into tonight's debate we're getting a glimpse in the candidates' pregame rituals courtesy of the website the independent journal review. check it out. >> my favorite thing to do on the day of the debate is play

8:08 am
we'll be asking the questions and it all starts at 8:00 p.m., 7:00 central. >> we have to get back to work. see you tonight. >> looking forward to that. anything can happen, anything will happen tonight. >> absolutely. >> we want to thank david and martha, and they're certainly gearing up for what will be a tooth and nail fight tonight, but on the other side things are also brewing and abc's cecilia vega at the debate hall with a look at how bernie sanders and hillary clinton are tangling offstage with just three days until voting begins in new hampshire. >> reporter: hillary clinton rallying her troops. bernie sanders firing up his base. >> all: bernie, bernie. >> reporter: this morning the latest polls showing a sanders surge, once presumed to be a shoein for the nomination clinton now ahead by just two points. i spoke with the former secretary of state in that field office in nashua. >> how are you? >> reporter: clinton says she's confident despite the polls. >> numbers go up and go down.
8:09 am
about it. >> reporter: heated rivalry center stage in their debate this week. >> i think it's time to end the very artful smear that you and your campaign have been carrying out. >> let's talk about issues. >> reporter: and clinton is still not holding back. you seemed like you walked out there ready for a fight. >> i'm tired of the innuendo, the insinuation, the smear from a campaign that says it's running a positive campaign. >> reporter: sanders slamming her ties to wall street. >> madam secretary, it is not one street. in my view, the business model of wall street is fraud. >> reporter: but clinton is still not saying whether she will release transcripts from paid speeches to groups like goldman sachs. why not just put them out there and put this line of attack to bed once and for all? >> you know, we will look into it. i said that but let's get to what's really going on. it is a smear. nobody buys me. nobody has ever influenced a vote. i don't have to prove that. >> reporter: for "good morning
