wednesday, february 10th, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie, live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. good morning. welcome to "today" on a wednesday morning. >> we just gave away our lead guest. >> right there, donald trump, live in our studio. a man of his word. yesterday, he said, if i win, i'll join you in your studio. guess what? here he is. >> the big winner, wasn't even close on the republican side or democratic side. >> huge shifts on the left and the right. let's get to where things stand this morning. fueled by record-setting voting turnout, bernie sanders won over hillary clinton more than 20 points. hillary clinton conceded moments after the poll closed. >> things aren't closer on the
7:02 am
republican side, at least at the top. donald trump doubling his closest competitor, the surprise of the night, john kasich. cruz finished third after a win in iowa. followed closely be jeb bush and marco rubio with chris christie in a disappointing sixth. >> we'll talk to trump and kasich in a moment. first, let's start with the democrats. kristen welker, good morning. >> what a night. the clinton campaign is waking up to the reality secretary clinton has a tough road ahead. right now, senator bernie sanders has more momentum. the campaign has been bracing for a loss but didn't expect such an overwhelming defeat. >> reporter: riding a wave of anti-establishment enthusiasent bernie sanders trounced center clinton in new hampshire, turning his underdog campaign into a real fight. >> it is just too late for the
7:03 am
same old, same old establishment polit politics. the people want real change. [ applause ] >> reporter: in a rousing speech that lasted nearly 30 minutes, sanders flexed his muscles, painting the win as a validation of his call to take on wall street and big business. >> together, we have sent the message that we'll echo from wall street to washington, from maine to california. >> reporter: and while secretary clinton's campaign may have been bruised, she tried not to show it. striking a note of confidence tuesday night. >> not whether you get knocked down that matters. it's whether you get back up. >> reporter: but sources close to the campaign tell nbc news top aids are taking stock of the strategy, including a sharper focus on wall street, a message that's rallied young voters around sanders.
7:04 am
>> we also agree that wall street can never be allowed to once again threaten main street. i will fight to reign in wall street. you know what? i know how to do it. >> reporter: in a memo, clinton's campaign manager tried to calm jittery supporters. writing, the nomination will likely be won in march, not february, pointing to clinton's strength in super tuesday states, which are larger and more diverse, playing to her appeal among minority communities. >> we also have to break through the barriers of bigotry. african-american parents shouldn't have to worry that their children will be harassed, humiliated, even shot because of the color of their skin. >> reporter: while the campaign is trying to down play the loss, noting sanders is from neighboring vermont, the clintons have strong roots here, too. new hampshire is where president bill clinton famously called himself the comeback kid, and where secretary clinton beat barack obama in 2008. >> thank you. >> reporter: but now, it's the
7:05 am
place that put bernie sanders on the map. >> thank you, new hampshire! now, it's on to nevada, south carolina and beyond. [ applause ] >> sources close to the campaign say both hillary and bill clinton expressed concerns about the campaign. now, they're bringing on a new strategist, one of the top officials from president obama's re-election campaign. expect more outreach to the young voters who overwhelmingly prefer sanders. the only demographic clinton won with voters, 65 and older. senator sanders will work to improve his support among african-americans. today, meeting with reverend al sharpton. back to you. >> kristen welker, thank you very much. >> let's bring in chuck todd. nbc's political director, moderator of "meet the press." hillary clinton knew she was going to lose. i don't know they knew they'd lose this badly. where do they go from here? >> they have to worry about a
7:06 am
couple things. number one, not to panic. the worse it can get the more they panic. they have a money problem. bernie sanders out-raised her in january and will again. they don't have the ability to shoot out an e-mail and raise a bunch of money. the next contest is not south carolina. it's nevada. this is a race that suddenly is very tight there. it's very possible sanders beats her in nevada, too. then that race takes the one in south carolina to a point it won't be so easy for her. now, she has to deal with outside forces she can't control. rumors about michael bloomberg, the former new york city mayor getting in. rumors about joe biden. this is going to be a very difficult three weeks. if the campaign panics at any point, maybe overcorrects, it could be in even worse shape in a month from now. >> rest your voice for a second. we want you to comment on the
7:07 am
republican side of things. donald trump topped the latest polls last night. 75 polls heading into the new hampshire primary. voters turned out for him in force on tuesday. nbc national correspondent peter alexander is already in the next battleground state, south carolina. >> good morning. south carolina, where the next primary is ten days away. donald trump likes to boast he's a winner and he proved it in a huge way last night. more than doubling his closest competitor, john kasich. this is a candidate who has re-defined republican politics and ran away with new hampshire. ♪ tell me it's a revolution >> reporter: donald trump, triumpha triumphant. >> we are going to make america great again. >> reporter: the brash billionaire turned politician, racking up his first win. >> we want to thank the people of new hampshire. right? do we love the people of new
7:08 am
hampshire! >> reporter: extending an olive branch of sorts to his republican rivals. >> i wanted to congratulate the other candidates, okay? now that i got that out of the way -- >> reporter: taking aim at the democrat who carried new hampshire. >> i heard parts of bernie's speech. he wants to give away our country, folks. we're not going to let it happen. >> reporter: winning the war for second, ohio governor john kasich, whose optimistic tone resonated in an otherwise nasty primary. >> the light overcame the darkness of negative campaign. [ applause ] and you made it happen. >> reporter: earlier, he was reflective with nbc news. >> we plugged away and plugged away. the little engine that can. >> reporter: a week removed from an iowa celebration, marco rubio fell into fifth place, acknowledging in blunt terms that his poor debate performance cost him. >> our disappointment tonight is not on you. it's on me. it's on me. i did not -- i did not do well
7:09 am
on saturday night, so listen to this, that will never happen again. >> reporter: jeb bush, sandwiched in the middle of the pack. >> this campaign is not dead. we're going on to south carolina. >> reporter: bush aids telling nbc news, they're rising as rubio fades. ted cruz is looking for the first in the south primary next week. >> we go to south carolina, the palmetto state. washington liberals may find south carolina far less hospitab hospitable. >> reporter: cruz releasing a new ad, mocking the republican front runner. >> i got the trump action figure. >> no way, it's huge. >> what does he do? >> he pretends to be a republican. >> reporter: trump firing back. >> ted cruz, the worst kind of washington insider who just can't be trusted. >> reporter: meanwhile, chris christie lagging behind in single digits. >> just not enough.
7:10 am
not enough tonight, that's okay. >> reporter: instead of a planned trip to south carolina today, the new jersey governor will head home, where he'll decide the future of his campaign. >> a tough night for chris christie and for carly fiorina and ben carson, as well. i flew down with john kasich from new hampshire overnight. he was clearly elated, even a little bit stunned by last night's results. as he told me, i think we're really on to something, with the positive nature of this campaign. matt and savannah? >> peter alexander, thank you very much. donald trump joins us fresh off the win in new hampshire. good morning. good to have you here. >> good morning. >> known you more than 30 years. you've always said you're a winner. last night, voters went into the polls and officially made you a winner. how does it feel? >> it's great. the people from new hampshire are great. i've had a bonding relationship with them a long time. i've been up there long before the political thing. we did better than anticipated.
7:11 am
we would have rallies where ten times the number of people would show up than we expected. we got to see it from an early point. i think south carolina, frankly, is going to be similar to that. >> you doubled up on john kasich. you've said you are sure you can beat hillary clinton or bernie sanders. are you the favorite to be the next president of the united states? >> that, i don't know. i don't want to talk about favorites. i think we're doing very well. we have something special. two days ago, i was in south carolina and we filled up the stadium. it was packed with people. it's a movement. people want to see a smart country. they want to see us take the country back. they want great deals, not horrible deals. we lose money with trade. we can't win with the military. we can't beat isis. think of general george patton not being able to beat isis. it doesn't work that way. this country doesn't win anymore. >> new hampshire reordered things. who is your biggest competition
7:12 am
now, is it kasich? cruz in south carolina? >> great question. i think all of them. they're all accomplished people. they're governors and senators. they're all very good people. maybe, you know. but i think, probably, i wouldn't want to pick one. they're close enough, and we'll see what happens. they're all accomplished people. >> it's serious now, mr. trump. i mean, now people are going to take a good, hard look at you and say, can he be the leader of the free world? can he be our president? >> they've been looking at me, matt, six months. >> now this new hampshire win says, this guy is on track. when it comes to parents in this country, they want their kids to be able to look up to the president. they want them to be able to admire the president. you were on with us last week and we talked about being more subdued. you said, i'm trying to become more statesmanlike, more subdued. this week, you continued using some words, repeating a word that a supporter said to you at an event that i'm not going to
7:13 am
repeat here. is that satatesmanlike? >> we had 5,000 people in a snowstorm, in a blizzard, and everybody was having a good time. a woman, not a man, shouted out this word, and then shouted it out again. >> she didn't have to repeat it. >> we had a good time and it wasn't the worst thing in the world. >> you're a presidential candidate and we have to bleep it, is that what you want to show? >> we were having a tremendous time, got a standing ovation. everybody was up and down, standing, screaming. it's one of the reasons i won. you have to be yourself. now, as i get -- look, i was a good student at the best school and all that stuff. i know what to do and whatnot to do. i will say this, as you get closer, you act differently. we were having a good time. the people went out and voted for me and that's why we got the numbers we did. look, this country, political correctness is killing us. >> is it political correctness or good manners, temperament?
7:14 am
>> it wasn't the worst thing in the world. it was a woman and it was a repeat. i said, you should never say that word. >> then sarcastically repeated the word. >> did i reprimand the person? >> you can't reprimand if you're going to say it yourself. when are you going to release your tax returns? >> they're being worked on now. >> what's the hold up? >> i guarantee the biggest ever in the history of what we're doing. it's complicated stuff. we will be releasing that. >> will people be surprised at the rate you pay, lower or higher than expected? >> i fight like hell not to pay a lot of tax. every politician probably does. i watched others where they say, i want to pay taxes. i fight like hell not to pay taxes. i hate the way the government spends my money. >> big winner in new hampshire, donald trump, thank you for being here. >> thank you very much. now to the surprise second place finisher on the republican
7:15 am
side. ohio governor john kasich. he made his way to south carolina over night and will look to capitalize there on this momentum. governor, good morning and congratulations. >> thank you. we're very happy. >> i saw you on your bus in new hampshire, and you definitely were feeling this coming. what do you think made the difference in the final days? was it something you said, or was it the faltering of other candidates? >> no, i don't think it was the faltering. we were on our way up anyway. we do have great grassroots people, which we'll be able to use throughout the country. we'll be building teams everywhere we are. secondly, i had a positive message. as you know, savannah, i was the only one with a really positive message. i always felt that will light could overcome the darkness in a political campaign where we could say what we're for. bringing families together, creating jobs, making sure no one gets left behind. that message was used consistently for the last -- well, i've been doing it most of
7:16 am
my lifetime -- but a very strong message about all of that. i think, finally, it broke through, along with the fact that our tv commercials were positive. i had so many millions of dollars spent against me. we overcame it. >> i'm glad you said the light can overcome the darkness and your positive message resonated with voters. you're behind a guy who is way ahead in the polls and has a habit of when somebody gets close to him, talking about donald trump, targeting that person with negativity. can your positive message hold up under that withering attack that has claimed other candidates? >> well, matt, here's the thing, somebody wants to mess with me, they're messing with the wrong guy. i'm not going to sit there and be a marshmallow and have somebody pound me. look, i was a congressman, balanced the budget, i was the military reformer, i've been the governor of ohio. all those positions, we've seen jobs created and problems
7:17 am
solved. we're not going to sit back and take a pounding from anybody, we're going to tell people what we're for. in my speech last night at the close of the voting, you know, it's gotten rave reviews, which i'm grateful for. i'm talking about bringing people together and reviving the spirit of america. >> governor kasich, you gave your resume. it's impressive. you've been in government many, many years. not to take anything away from your strong finish last night, donald trump still beat you by 20 something points. this is a year where it seems like voters don't want the establishment. they might feel you represent that. >> he had 65% that didn't vote for him. it's just that there are so many people that when you take the votes, you don't have them together, he gets that kind of a showing. we're going to see how it goes, savannah. nobody thought i'd run for president. no one thought i'd raise the money when i decided to.
7:18 am
no one thought i'd make the debates or get to new hampshire. as some people have said, in fact, my two daughters said, daddy, we win you won because we're not so sure mr. trump will last. but we'll see what happens. we'll see what happens. it's a long, long road, all the way to the nomination. at some point, we're going to be going to the midwest. we're going to be going to pennsylvania and ohio and michigan and illinois. just wait. >> all right. ohio governor john kasich, appreciate it. >> thank you. thank you very much. let's bring chuck todd back in. chuck, on to the republicans now. we know who had the best night, donald trump. john kasich had a good night, as well. who had the worst night? >> i think -- i guess you have to say chris christie. he went for the kill on marco rubio. it didn't help him. it certainly hurt rubio. marco rubio arguably had equally as bad of a night. christie did worse. i don't know -- he's not going to qualify for saturday's debate, as far as the criteria.
7:19 am
he probably has to reassess his campaign. that's why he's in new jersey this morning and not south carolina. marco rubio is also on the ropes. south carolina, matt, is going to be a blood bath. we have about ten days. jeb bush, trump, ted cruz, john kasich, marco rubio. it could be a circular firing squad. who goes after who? when you asked donald trump who his chief rival is now, i'd say ted cruz. he won one. as things go south, he should have a natural constituency out there. i think you'll see cruz and trump fight it out. bush, kasich and rubio fight to see who can be the last remaining establishment republican. >> chuck todd, thank you very much. we have a ricola on the way to you. let's get a check of the weather from mr. roker. >> we have a lot of cold air coming in. also, a beautiful day out west.
7:20 am
they could use rain in southern california today. 88 degrees. you look at what's happening in minneapolis today. 13 for a high. wind chills near zero. we have a little bit of a clipper bringing lake-effect snow that will continue to pile up over the next 48 hours. ♪ all year long you worked hard to take care of business and take care of the people who matter most. ♪ so when your tax refund arrives, make it go a little further at walmart. from electronics, to home decor, even tires, ♪ get low prices on everything you need to get more fun out of your tax refund. walmart. ♪ good morning, i'm meteorologist bill henley. we're starting off with a little light snow, a dusting in some areas. it's gone later this morning. a breezy day an a warmup.

i guess i never really gave much thought to the acidity in any foods. never thought about the coffee i was drinking having acids. it never dawned on me that it could hurt your teeth. my dentist has told me your enamel is wearing away, and that sounded really scary to me, and i was like well can you fix it, can you paint it back on, and he explained that it was not something that grows back, it's kind of a one-time shot and you have to care for it. he told me to use pronamel. it's gonna help protect

7:27 am
we will see a warmup, the snow coming to an end. even breaks of sunshine as we head into the noontime hour. by then we'll be in the upper 30s. thank you, bill. jessica boyington is keeping our eye on the slick roads out there. >> we are starting to see a lot of accidents and slippier spots. 202 on the northbound side there's an accident scene around 309. they just had the southboundç lanes also blocked off to traffic and they do have the northbound lines being blocked off at this exact moment. police activity on the scene, you can see the snow starting to accumulate over into the center median and over into the sides with a few vehicles involved, tow trucks, big backups there. watch the off ramps and for slippery spots on secondary roads. vai? i'm vai sikahema. another update coming up in 25 minutes. now back to the "today" show. see you in a half hour. ♪

7:30 now. wednesday morning, february 10th, 2016. we have some sprinkles outside, little bit of a dreary start outside. spirits are high inside studio 1a. >> a look at some of the headlines of the morning. an alarming morning from the director of national intelligence, james clapper. he said isis will probably attempt direct attacks on the united states in the coming year. he also warned about the terror group's presence online. >> isil used terror not only for recruitment and propaganda, but also to hack and release sensitive information about u.s. military personnel.
7:31 am
>> five dozen isis-linked arrests were made in the u.s. last year. a flight from boston to san diego had to be diverted. an intoxicated passenger became abusive and threatened crew members. the man was taken away to the delight of fellow passengers. [ applause ] airport officials say the man is not facing charges. in politics, the big story, donald trump and bernie sanders winning big in new hampshire. sanders topping hillary clinton by more than 20 points. trump winning big over a crowded republican field. he joined us in our last half hour and we asked him if he's now the overall favorite in the presidential race. >> i think we're doing very well. we have something very special. two days ago, i was in south carolina and we filled up the stadium. it was packed with people. there's something going on. it's a movement. people want to see a smart
7:32 am
country. >> senator marco rubio ended up in fifth place in new hampshire. he's still in new hampshire and joins us live. good to see you. thank you for getting up early. >> i'm up early every day. thank you. >> up late and up early in this case. >> yeah. >> you said last night to your supporters that you were disappointed. very straight forward about it. you said the loss is not on them, it's on you. it strikes me that this was really the first time you owned up to saturday night's debate being not a great performance for you and having an effect. do you think you should have said something sooner, been more authentic and maybe it would have salvaged the moment? >> that's not the right analysis of it. a debate is a debate and i don't think the people at home analyze it like the media. the problem is 24 hours later, the media fixated on that and that's what people heard about. they heard that somebody bad happened saturday night with rubio. when you see the margins, very
7:33 am
close, that's enough in a race like this. my supporters did everything they needed to do. we finished shorter than we wanted because of me. it's something that won't ever happen again. we have eight debates in this campaign so far. i've done great in all of it except 90 seconds worth of it. i won't ever happen again. this election is too important. it's not just about winning the election but what is at stake here. you won't see anyone work harder or more passionately, not just to win an election but turn the country around. >> you say it will never happen again. you feel it was a bad performance. a lot of political analysts are saying it was something more serious. it was exposing a flaw in you as a candidate, and they translate it to a lack of depth. >> it's absurd. no one in this race, for example, has shown greater depth, knowledge, understanding or better judgment on the foreign policy issues than i have. the fact of the matter is, that
7:34 am
debate was 2 hours and 15 minutes long. i got asked a host of questions on complex things and i answered every single question with as much or more depth than anyone else in the race. i'm not worried about that part. i think both our record on the issues are clear and, moving forward, we'll make it clear. there is not an issue before this country that i cannot discuss in depth with anyone in the race. when it comes to foreign policy and national security, i have more experience and have done more work than all the other republican candidate rs remaini combined. >> you are somebody to spouts off talking points, as someone said. or you're a mile wide but an inch deep? >> i'm on the air with you now and you can ask me any question you want on any policy issue you'd like and we can discuss it in depth. i don't know what you're going to ask me. i do this every day. i don't think that's the narrative that's taking hold. i think the narrative was, he
7:35 am
had a bad debate and people heard about it on the news. where it really hurts is you can't get any other message out. all they want to ask you about is the debate that night. it's on me and it won't happen again. we're going to get back to the fundamentals of what made us successful in the past. we're going to get there. >> you saw the results last night, the margin of victory for donald trump and john kasich had a good night. do you think anyone can stop donald trump from getting the nomination right now? >> sure. donald trump is not going to be the republican nominee. new hampshire is a state that has been badly hurt by, for example, losing jobs to china, the closing of mills, loss of our manufacturing base. donald has tapped into that and it's an important topic that needs to be discussed, without a doubt. ultimately, to be president, you can't tell people what's wrong. you have to tell people how you're going to fix it. we had a conversation about depth. i mean, where are the policy ideas about how we're going to bring manufacturing back? it's not enough to say you're going to do it.
7:36 am
voters deserve to know how you're going to do it. i don't know how you're going to continue to run a campaign into south carolina and beyond without specifically outlining policy ideas on these issues. i think that's where the issue of depth that you just asked about comes into play. i can tell you we have a plan. i know how we're going to bring manufacturing back. we need energy reform and tax reform. our tax docode is among the mos expensive in the industrialized world. we're at a competitive disadvantage globally. we're in the part of the campaign where the race is narrower, less people in the race, and there is going to be a focus on policy. we'll see how people hold up. they'll have to step up and outline their solutions to these serious problems. >> marco rubio, thank you for your time. >> thank you. let's get a check of the weather now from al. >> announcer: today's weather is brought to you by kay jewelers. every kiss begins with kay. >> guys, we're looking at some

8:57 am
into south jersey and central new jersey, upper burlington county. just in the pemberton area snow is moving out. 30 degrees with slipping and sliding first thing to be done this morning. visibility is reducing and there are slippery spots on the roads. let's get you updated on the traffic conditions with traffic reporter jessica boyington. >> yeah, we have slippery spots and accidents. there's one in galloway near orange tree avenue really tying things up. it's been out there for quite some time. the 42 freeway has definitely seen better days. you can see snow around the area here as well. head northbound into philadelphia, you'll see some problems. and once you get to the area bridges, we have reduced speeds and have had them all morning long on the betsy ross and the ben franklin and commodore. no problems in terms of spread reduction getting into philadelphia, but we have delays
8:58 am
all over into the city. tracy? happening today, state senators in pennsylvania plan to vote on whether to call for the removal of attorney general kathleen cain. she's facing charges for leaking material and lying about it. and special masses are being held throughout the day in our region for ash wednesday. this is the beginning of the 40 days leading up to easter. i'm tracy davidson. you can always stay updated with our nbc 10 app.

9:02 am
who are in manchester for us this morning. hey, guys. >> good morning. we're missing a big one. >> ryan, forest whitaker. >> we'll keep them company. don't worry. >> you mentioned the huge thing. we basically got queens versus brooklyn. donald trump and bernie sanders. >> is that a subway series? >> could be. as you've heard, donald trump won on the republican side with 35% of the vote in new hampshire. john kasich coming in an impressive second place at 16%. ted cruz at 12%. it went down from there. jeb bush on the list, marco rubio, as well. i think the fact that donald trump matched the polling is what a lot of people are looking at. he underperformed in the polls in iowa. he was leading by 20 points in most of the polls leading up and he delivered. >> he overperformed, and he had under performed in iowa. the official gop front runner spoke last night at his victory party.
9:03 am
here's what he said. >> we have to thank the candidates because they really read -- we have some talented people. to be victorious against some of these people, even if it's for one week, but i believe it'll be many weeks, okay? but they really are terrific. new hampshire, i want to thank you. we love you. we're going to be back a lot. we're not going to forget you. you started it. remember, you started it. >> donald trump wins. john kasich is interesting. a lot of people wonder, what happens to second place? is it one of the four or five guys? john kasich emerged. does he have the message, the power, resources to go and compete? marco rubio is another guy people were looking at. he fell to fifth place. obviously, the debate performance where chris christie tore him apart was devastating. >> he could not recover from that. saying what chris christie referred to, 20-second memorized speech. going back to kasich, i was at his headquarters last night and
9:04 am
willie and i were talking. the message john kasich is presenting is polar opposite to what we're hearing from donald trump. the tell it like it is. really going negative as he needs to in the trump arena. john kasich is saying, negative politics is old school. it's what he said last night. a lot of his supporters, they broke out into cheers on this second place. it means, of course, they live to fight another day in south carolina. >> of all the fights we've seen on the republican side, we haven't really seen trump and kasich go at it. i interviewed trump this morning and asked him about john kasich. you started to see the early signs. he said, well, he got lucky. the state of ohio, they've done well, struck oil there. he's shaping, how do i go after this guy who came in second? chris christie, governor of new jersey, finished a disappointing sixth. he invested so much in the state. instead of heading to south carolina, as he planned, he's back in new jersey this morning,
9:05 am
assessing his campaign. he spent more than 70 days campaigning in new hampshire. as i said, came in sixth place. >> after criticizing rubio so hard, many are saying, how is it that chris christie didn't benefit? he essentially took out rubio, but his own campaign at the same time. we'll see if chris christie can lift to fight another day. projected winner for the democratic race, bernie sanders. a little color here, bernie sanders before this was announced, playing basketball with his grandchildren. this is how he was shaking off the nerves. as you know, back in new york, he was always a favorite to win here. but this gap, i believe they said, is pretty historic. it's the largest gap between two candidates on the democratic side. after the polls, bernie sanders rallied his supporters. here's a little of what he said. >> together, we have sent the
9:06 am
message that we'll echo from wall street to washington, from maine to california. [ applause ] and that is that the government of our great country belongs to all of the people and not just a handful of wealthy campaign contributors and their super pacs. >> so bernie sanders winning by 22 points. i think a lot of people -- we talked to experts even yesterday -- yeah, he's up 20 points in the polls but there's no way it'll be that way on election night. it was. it was 22 points. he won by 11 points among women. part of hillary clinton's campaign is she is a historic female candidate.
9:07 am
she lost by women overall by double digits. hillary clinton speaking last night. >> i know i have work to do, particularly with young people, but i'll repeat again what i have said this week -- [ applause ] -- even if they are not supporting me now, i support them. because i know -- [ applause ] i know i've had a blessed life, but i also know what it's like to stumble and fall. >> well, that's her message to the young women out there. we'll see if there is adjustments to that. guys, back to new york, it is significant she lost women by 11%. not just young women. in iowa, we saw her lose handily to young people. we saw the same thing. it is what some are referring to as hillary woman problems. we'll see how her campaign
9:08 am
adjusts to that moving on. >> guys, good job out there. next key date in politics, south carolina republican primary and the democratic caucus, both on the 20th. >> that reminds me of the key date we have coming up this weekend. valentine's day. >> february 14th. >> we know what natalie is going to do from earlier. >> nah, nah, nah. >> what are you going to do valentine's day? >> i'm going to go to bed early. >> i'll see "deadpool." >> listen, there's a prediction about valentine's day and "ghost busters 2." bill murray's character is talking to a psychic. >> you had another date in mind. >> according to my source, the end of the world will be on february 14th in the year 2016. >> valentine's day. bummer. >> wow. >> the end of the world?
9:09 am
>> i'll hold my little babies, i guess. >> we know what you're going to do. >> how about the kids? >> ew. >> what? >> i will have a nice family dinner. big, big, big -- >> thank you for taking it there. what's your last meal? >> rib eye steak, cream spinach, steak fries, apple cobbler and ice cream on top. >> you had me at the rib eye steak. >> and bacon. >> i'm hungry. >> a lot of people have been going to our facebook page because we've got today's take facebook page. it's day 11 of 25 days of prizes. this prize, especially with the weather forecast we've got coming up, is spectacular. it's a four-day, three-night trip to a salamander golf beach and resort.

9:20 am
on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is the number one prescribed blood thinner in its class. well that calls for a round of kevin nealons. make mine an arnold palmer. same here. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. lips appear to age faster than no worries. now, there's new chapstick® total hydration. its 100% natural, age defying formula is clinically proven to provide healthier, more youthful looking lips. chapstick® put your lips first® one of the cool perks of this place is you can eat as much cereal as you want. it's like i'm going to work to get some. alrighty. we just like cereal. we make it, eat it, love it, live it.
