7:50 am
"today," nightly and two hours of msnbc. >> i'm slacking today, i'm only doing this show. just ahead on a sunday morning on "today" w one day to go now to the iowa caucuses, the candidates are fanning out across the state in full force. a new poll shows hillary clinton and bernie sanders neck and neck, and donald trump surging past ted cruz. and bill cosby due back in court this week. why his lawyers say the sex assault case dans him should be thrown out. and the story of a retiring police officer going to great lengths to keep his ka ncanine partner, despite an attempt by the state to auction off the dog to the highest bidder. and a terrific story about how some talented but unlikely artists are being discovered. >> we'll have that and much more when we get started on "today"
7:51 am
at 8:00. the first votes of decision 2016 will be cast tomorrow in iowa. the candidates for president are down to the wire and harvesting a deep crop in the caucuses. joining us this morning is chuck todd from "meet the press." >> love the farming analogies here. very nice. >> let's start with the closest race, the democrats. bernie sanders and hillary clinton are polling practically in a statistical tie. did anybody see this coming including the clintons? >> just imagine what your first question was to me. you asked me about the closer race and it was the democratic side. three months ago we were only talking about the republican side. look, obviously here, that's what we'll find out monday night, is whether bernie sanders, has he inspired enough first-time caucusgoers? is it a heart versus head contest? he needs a high turnout.
7:52 am
he needs a turnout that looks more like 2008 where barack obama surprised hillary clinton that time. if it's an average turnout, usual suspects, hillary clinton wins. if we see a surge, that's good news for sanders. >> i think we heard donald trump say this morning that it doesn't matter if you're sick, if your wife's going to leave you, you have to get out there and caucus. let's talk about the republicans. what about this match-up between trump and cruz? trump ahead by five points. did the fact he skipped the debate this past week, did it make any difference? what's going on here? >> it's interesting. the cruz campaign swears that donald trump was impacted by missing the debate. but the evidence so far in any of the numbers we've seen, we have not seen that evidence. there's a reason why donald trump is talking to people, you got to go, you got to go no matter what is going on in your house, he's relying hard on first-time caucusgoers.
7:53 am
i was talking to folks at a trump rally a couple nights ago, and there were a few of them who had not voted in any election in 20 years. that's why some are skeptical if this trump lead can hold because he's relying on a bunch of people who have never done this before. this is not showing up, dropping in a ballot, walking out. that's why trump's lead is viewed with a bit of skepticism. >> we'll have to see how it all plays out. chuck todd live for us in iowa, thank you very much. >> all right. presidential candidates ted cruz, marco rubio and bernie sanders will talk with chuck todd this morning on "meet the press." it comes your way at 10:30.
7:54 am
