8:14 am
from the heart gesture, that's another trained gesture, the finger and thumb, authoritative but not aggressive. and this chopping gesture would say i'm so confident, but it's very rapid and jerky. >> but that hand is stuck in his pocket and that says i really am not comfortable. >> right. he's not comfortable. that's his emotional state. but if he thinks about it, he'll probably pull it back out. >> finally, we're running short on time, but let's take a look at someone whose body language hasn't been working with will and that's jeb bush. >> okay venl. >> here's jeb bush at a town hall meeting in new hampshire. >> he's tense in his shoulders. he is flipping things away as well, but he's doing it in a less, perhaps, confident way. his sleeves are down. when you have your shirt up, especially as a politician, you want your sleeves rolled up. >> why?
8:15 am
working versus having your sleeves rolled down. i hate to say this, but trump labeling him low energy is not too far off. >> don, we have to take a break. when we come back, we'll take a look at the democratic candidates and see what our expert sees in their body language. stay with us. what would you do with five minutes to kill, and a smart phone? check the scores. probably post a pic. text a friend. how about register to vote? really? you can. five minutes online and a massachusetts drivers license

8:18 am
>> the polls show he is perceived as honest and principled and authentic. the places you want to be. >> absolutely. >> his hands are up high and you said that's not good. >> he's when you're up by your head that it's really a negative. >> because it conveys confusion. >> confusion or not comfortable, maybe angry. >> agitated. >> voters don't like that. they want people are who are even-keeled. >> interesting. >> now, hillary clinton. this is the at the cnn town hall forum last week. she'd been asked a question about her honesty. she's not happy with the question. >> no. trying to dismiss it. her facial expressions are off. she smiled a few minutes ago and there was no wrinkling by the eyes, so that would say to me it's a fake smile. however if she's had botox, that can be confusing. >> what about this. >> hands up by her head like this, it's a sense of not happy.
8:19 am
>> what about this? >> it's like a hammer going down, right? that's a negative. >> right. she's trying to hammer the guy. >> fascinating. >> yeah. >> now, do you believe all these candidates have worked with expert coaches, body language coaches. >> i don't know about trump. i'm sure he has. and i don't know about sanders. they're just so authentic, it doesn't come across so scripted as it does with cruz or hillary clinton. >> so if the vote is decided on nonverbal communication messages, i'm not going to ask you to make a flat prediction, but you think sanders and trump are in the driver's seat? >> absolutely. the primaries are different, but in a general, i would say tr ushgs m pshgsump beats clinton and sanders beats trump.
