7:07 am
place. you. >> reporter: for better or worse, marco rubio has discovered his inner donald trump. hurling personal insults. it is a successful model. for trump one potential downside procures another important conversation about trump, tolerance and the future of the republican party. >> he doesn't sweat because his pores are clogged from the spray tan that he uses. >> reporter: last night at a rally in virginia, marco rubio got a lot more personal in his attacks against donald trump. >> he is always calling me little marco. i admit he is taller than me. he is 6'2" which is why i don't understand why his hands are the size of someone who is@ at 5'2". he has small hands.
7:08 am
you can't trust them. >> reporter: trump referred to marco rubio. >> there is something wrong with marco. there is something with him. he is sweating. >> reporter: in the past, trump has retweeted support of messages from white supremacists and even retweeted a quote over the weekend from world war ii dictator mussolini. he hesitated when asked about david duke's endorsement of the ku klux klan. >> i know nothing about david duke or white supremacist. i don't know what group you're talking about. you wouldn't want me to condemn a group i know nothing about. >> trump knew enough about duke to say this friday in ft. worth. >> i didn't know he endorsed me. david duke endorsed me? okay. i disavow, okay. >> reporter: marco rubio called trump dangerous to the gop.

party with a noom minee who refuses to condemn the ku klux klan? >> donald trump refused to disassociate himself and condemn white supremacist. every day, it's another thing. >> reporter: ted cruz took to twitter. we should all agree racism is wrong and kkk is abhorrent. trump picked up the endorsement of alabama senator jeff sessions and that only be interrupted as a blow to cruz. trump invoked his name in the fight against rubio and comprehensive immigration reform. >> thank you, major. in the democratic race, hillary clinton carries the momentum. the latest tracker battleground poll shows clinton big lead in georgia, virginia and texas. clinton scored a decisive win this weekend. she beat bernie sanders by a landslide in saturday's south
7:10 am
clinton will hold an event where nancy cordes is this morning. >> reporter: she is leading by 20 points here in virginia in our battleground tracker. it's one of two states a that she is visiting today. those poll numbers help to explain why increasingly clinton is turning her attention away from bernie sanders, training her fire, instead, on the republican candidates. >> i want to debate whoever they put up because here is what they are saying. they are selling the same snake oil, trickle down economics. >> reporter: clinton changed her focus after her south carolina blowout. >> tomorrow, this campaign goes national! >> reporter: she won the state's african-american vote by a staggering 72 points. on "face the nation," sanders didn't sugar-coat it. >> we did really, really, really badly with older african-americans voters. we got decimate. >> reporter: tomorrow, he must compete in seven more southern
7:11 am
the latest cbs news battleground tracker shows him trailing clinton by 24 points in texas and 28 points in georgia. voters there said clinton is more qualified, but they viewed sanders as more principle and hon honest. >> secretary clinton does it a little bit differently. >> reporter: a distinction he tried to draw in oklahoma city. >> if you're going to get paid $200,000 for a speech, must be a pretty damn good speech. and if it's such a good speech, you got to release the transcript! let everybody see it! >> reporter: clinton campaigned in nashville, a camera caught her can dit reaction when he told her about the latest trump controversy. sanders shared that sentiment tweeting america's first black president cannot and will not be
7:12 am
refuses to condemn the kkk. clinton retweeted it. >> some of his supporters say we like mr. trump because he tells it like it is. bigotry is not telling it like it is! >> reporter: sanders is heading to minnesota today, one of a few states where he thinks he can notch a win tomorrow. ironically, even as clinton pulls ahead in the delegate count he is poised to notch his best fund-raising month ever, pulling in $36 million in february. >> nancy, thanks. cbs news political director and "face the nation" moderator john dickerson is in washington. here we have all of this trading of insults and more aggressive campaign against trump. but the question remains -- will the race change until people stop dropping out? >> well, right or, you know, one of the things we saw in our battleground tracker even if the other candidates who are not donald trump start dropping out,
7:13 am
much more of the vote to really overtake trump. so we are going to have to see what happens when the voters get in the booth and start deciding what they are going to do to see if there is anything to stop trump. at the moment, this race to the bottom in the back and forth between the candidates hasn't seemed to have hurt him. >> rather than a campaign of ideas has become a campaign about mussolini and kkk and the size of a candidate's hands. what is going on in the national republican party about how this may affect the party's future and electoral chances in other races? >> once you're talking about mussolini you're in dangerous territory than makeup. these are repugnant ideas that the republican party stands very far apart of and the difficulty for donald trump even though he dissed about david duke on friday when he was asked by jake tapper on cnn about this, he
7:14 am
immediately denounce the kkk and white supremacist. this should not be difficult and gives support to those saying he is playing footsy with the ugliest ideas out there. >> a debate on thursday, a lot of people thought marco rubio did very well in. what is chris christie looking for? do you see this possible vp ticket for donald? >> possibly. i think it was a chance for chris christie to get back in the story a little bit after his poor showing in new hampshire and dropping out of the race, because he really ran on things, chris christie, that donald trump doesn't believe in and said things about trump and his lack of experience that are contradicted by what he said in supporting him ultimately in the end. so it's helpful as you mentioned for donald trump to have an endorsement from somebody like
7:15 am
so it was good for the news cycle but i think other than that, donald trump is off on his own and got his own thing going. whether a place for christie in a trump administration there probably is in some possible way. >> john, thanks. our team will bring you super tuesday results in prime time and our coverage begins at 10:00/9:00 central on cbs. a soldier accused of killing his wife and a police officer is expected to face a judge today. police say that staff sergeant ronald hamilton shot and killed officer ashley guindon on saturday. it was her first day with the prince william county police department in virginia. jeff pegues is at the court where hamilton's arraignment is scheduled to take place. jeff, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. ron hamilton will be in a courtroom today. not working at his job in i.t. at the pentagon joint staff services center. on saturday, investigators say

7:19 am
but for civilians in areas that are quiet, this patchwork truce offers relief and a glimmer of hope it might grow into a broader and more lasting arrangement with monitors and designated safe zones. especially in neighborhoods like the old city here thoroughly destroyed by years of fighting but now back in government hands and quiet. life is starting to return to the ruins. calmer, repairs, even school. the partial truce is also a rare bit of good news to the thousands of homeless syrians who were forced out of their towns and villages by fighting and who know want nothing more than to return. the united nations now wants to take advantage of this pause in the fighting to deliver aid to 150,000 people in various parts of syria. and they have also announced a new round of peace talks starting a week today.

8:16 am
some we think of that liberating and revolutionary but mostly the pattern. it used to be between 1890 and 1980 the marry age was 20 and 22 and now it's 27. it's a new pattern for adult female life that marriages happen later and maybe not at all. >> in 1970, here it was 23 and now 29. >> how is that changing us, meaning the general society? >> changes everything the way the nation works. it changes. our government and our social policy and civic institutions are built with one kind of sort of citizenry pattern in mind and the hetero marriage. not the way the works any more. tax policies and housing policies and schools let out at 3:00 in the afternoon and have big summer vacations!

8:18 am
especially in the predominantly white early states but almost certainly going to vote for a general election. the country? >> absolutely, absolutely. >> not the presidential level? >> yes, unmarried women vote democratic. they require a whole new set of social policies that democrats are more likely to be behind. >> so what about men too? men are, at the same time, marrying late? >> yes, they are. and the population of single men is growing. one of the differences is that been able to live more easily independent lives. they have been more easily able to earn their own livings and be economic independent. that is relatively new for women. as far as being able to have that kind of social independence and have it be a norm rather than a scandalous or pitiable sight. >> i like you said this is not the first time women have had a
8:19 am
>> in the 19th century so many men went west for exploration and killed during the civil war men on the east coast and huge population of unmarried women. a lot of these women whose lives suddenly weren't given over to the lives of wifeliness and motherhood put their effort teaching. >> nurses and medicine. >> absolutely. many of those pioneers and reformers were unmarried women or unconventionally married women. >> concentration of the major institutions in america? >> absolutely. it's happening. you see unmarried women rising in politics. we have so few women and so few women of color in politics and you see unmarried women and donna edwards running for senate in maryland and others. another one running for california in the senate.

inclusion is pervasive, like he wouldn't get the job irnl. >> he either. he is providing a context when he gave a historical context for the idea of boycotting. >> both of you gave him straight a's? >> no. >> no. >> i just want to mention one more thing i thought he did was brilliant make the point about there being black oscars and why the gender categories are still i've been saying this -- i wanted to write a story about this and i've been saying three years, the grammys no longer have gender categories. i want to know what would happen -- i think it would change things a lot in terms of how we talk about these things if you eliminated the gender category. >> one of the reasons we continue to have them is women don't tend to lead movies in the same way men do. most of the oscar nominated movies are the story of a hero on a quest. >> i will bet you anything, stuff would change if you just made it support -- ten

8:38 am
diversity issue obviously. >> the production itself brought out these sexual survivors or these abuse survivors and i thought that was really powerful. >> that said, wesley, you worked in boston and i worked in boston as well. >> yes. >> i worked -- >> the globe. >> you worked at the "globe" which this story is about. "spotlight "spotlight" raced out to the early lead and backed off. this was a little bit of a surprise. >> yes. it wing came down to three movies. this was -- i mean, when you think about it it's kind of a no-brainer. it's the most important of those, you know, quote, important of those three movies. it's really well made. >> great to see investigative journalism -- >> cheering at home. >> the least divisive between the revenant and that.
8:39 am
that sylvester stallone will win for "creed" as best supporting actor? >> people thought he had the edge. and mark rylance was a surprise of the night. even if you think it's a done deal, all of these, you know, front runners are going to win there is usually a surprise that often comes in the supporting categories and to see somebody like rylance honored for the theater actor, honored to "bridge of spies" for a quieter ylvester stallone did, i think is nice. >> one final thing to say it reminds me to watch the oscars, i mean, good actors, how many good arks we have and really are people out there who do what they do extraordinarily well. >> yes. no, it's great. one thing i will say about this so-called diversity issue is i don't know who was booking the guests or who said no, but all your actors of color came from tv.

8:46 am
el nino? >> reporter: we decided it might be best to consult an expert. here is theoretical futurist why do we have a leap year? 65 days is what we learn in school, no? mother nature made it 365 hours plus five hours and 49 minutes and a few odd seconds. that means that every year, we have to compensate for one quarter of a day. so after four years, we have to add one more day. >> reporter: when did we figure out the need for this extra day? it was way back in 46 b.c. julius caesar realized the calendar they were going after wasn't working. together they realized what the egyptians had discovered we need an extra day every four years to stay on track, so he instituted

but even that wasn't quite right. see? the solar year is actually only .242 days longer than the calendar year and not an even.25. when we add a full day every four years, we are left with a surplus of roughly 11 minutes every year, and that can start to add up. so, finally, in 1582, pope gregory 17th fixed the glitch and instituted the calendar we still follow today. how is it different? i'll let michio kaku explain. >> 11 minutes difference in one year's rotation builds up. and that is why the pope had to intervene and say we have to tweak the julien calendar one more time. so, for example, in the year 1600, that is divisible by 400, there was a leap year, but in 1700 and 1800 and 1900, no, no
