headquarters here in new york. good to be with you. i'm anne-marie green. national security fears dominated last night's republican presidential debate. senators ted cruz and marco rubio tried to make up ground on donald trump. a new national poll of registered republicans and likely republican voters finds trump with his biggest lead yet over his gop rivals. last night's debate was the first since the attack in san bernardino. the candidates used it to explain policy, attack the obama administration, and take shots at each other. danielle nottingham is in las vegas and she has our report. >> reporter: ted cruz and marco rubio went toe-to-toe. jeb bush came out swinging and donald trump was his signature self. nine republicans took the stage at hotel in las vegas where a
the first topic was donald trump's call to ban muslims from entering into the united states. trump said he extend it to refuges already here. >> if obama has brought some to this country, they are leaving, they are going, they are gone. >> reporter: jeb bush said that's not a serious proposal. >> it will push the arab world away from us at a time we need to reengage with him. he is a chaos candidate and he would be a chaos president. >> reporter: ted cruz leading iowa in two recent polls. >> does that mean leveling the isis capital of raqqua and syria where hundreds of thousands of civilians? >> what it means is using overwhelming air pour to defeat isis. >> they must be defeated on the ground by a ground force and that must be primarily made up of arab sunnis themselves. >> reporter: they clashed on immigration. >> for marco to suggest our
suggesting the firemen and the arsonists have the same record because they are both at the scene of the fire. >> reporter: the candidates have just two more scheduled debates to challenge front-runner donald trump face-to-face before the iowa caucuses on february 1st. an exchange about instituting a no-fly zone in syria led to rand paul questioning chris christie over the bridgegate scandal. >> we should shoot down the planes of russian pilots if they were stupidest enough to think this is the same as the one we have in the oval office right now. >> i think when we think about the judgment of someone who wants world war iii their about someone to shut down a bridge because they don't like their friends. >> if you want something talked about, ask the man. if you want something done, ask a woman. >> reporter: the debate featured a number of tense exchanges amongst the candidates. >> am i allowed to finish? >> one at a time.
am i allowed to finish? >> go ahead, mr. trump. >> gwynne. >> i know you're trying to build up your energy, jeb, but it's not working very well. he is having a hard time with the polls and i'm not. i'm at 42 and he is at 3. if i were in his case i would do exactly the same. >> trump showed not to go on the attack against ted cruz. >> the past three or four days, he has a wonderful temperament. he is just fine. don't worry about it. >> okay. >> reporter: trump was asked if he would run as an independent. he responded that he is committed to the republican party and will support its nominee. danielle nottingham, cbs news, las vegas. for more, we are joined now by yahoo!'s national news correspondent hunter walker. good morning. you've been covering the debate in las vegas. so i want to ask you, we saw some of the highlights in danielle nottingham's piece, but what do you think were the big takeaway moments?
>> for me, the big themes were that jeb bush attempted to challenge donald trump. we all know governor bush has been struggling in the polls and so we all understand why he attempted to take on trump and the question for me is whether or not that was successful and how much of a dent he will make in these national surveys. >> trump and cruz, prior to the debate, it seemed the two were having a bit of a war of words or a war of tweets. there was talk about whether or not they would clash. and you saw in danielle's speech, they sort of made up. >> absolutely. there seemed to be a little bit of a truce between trump and cruz. and in the days leading up to the debate, one of the major themes seemed like it would be a clash between trump and cruz. afterwards, i spoke to trump. he was calling cruz a good guy. it really did seem like they laid down their swords and decided to make peace.
you know, for months, we were talking about ben carson and to slide. this debate, we knew there was foreign policy. he is not strong in that area and tried to beef things up. do you think he was successful? >> you're absolutely right. i think one of the big questions right now, as we have seen donald trump sink in the summer emerge as a front-runner who is in second place. we saw ben carson enter that zone. he has since gone in free-fall in the polls. in this debate, he seemed to sort of disappear. i think the question is who can emerge as the major challenger to trump, and for me, tonight, certainly it wasn't carson. >> okay. so bringing that point up, do you anticipate any shift at all in the polls moving forward? >> i think a big question for me is jeb bush went on the offensive with trump.
did he put a dent in donald trump's lead? and, you know, we are waiting for the polls. we will see how that strikes out. >> hunter walker in las vegas, thank you very much. coming up on "cbs this morning," new jersey governor chris christie joins us with his take on last night's debate. and democrat hillary clinton is spelling out her plans to disrupt the home-grown terrorism threat. clinton said americans cannot give into fear. she called for an overhaul of visa waiver rules. >> anyone who has traveled in the past five years to a country facing serious problems with terrorism and foreign fighters should have to go through a full visa investigation, no matter where they are from. >> clinton also attacked her republican opponents saying shallow slogans don't add up to strategy. defense secretary ash carter arrived in iraq this morning on an unannounced visit.
