>> which goes to show high poll numbers and gym filled rallies mean nothing in the first of the nation caucus state. the only thing that really matters is what happens monday night. >> again, that was in clinton, iowa last night. we're back in des moines joined by usf political scientist and our news channel 8 political analyst dr. susan mcmanus. donald trump is leading. i think he has 28%, 25 for ted cruz, 15% for marco rubio but really it doesn't matter at this point. it is anyone's game. hillary clinton neck and neck with bernie sanders. i mean, this is a race that everyone is watching. what is happening here in iowa? >> oh, everybody is biting their finger nails. it is one of those kind of races. it is exciting. but the nervous ones are obviously the candidates. because all of this hype and crowds showing up for him. they're just really worried that come monday they won't show. maybe the weather is bad. maybe the kids sick at home and
even in some of the places that we went where people were coming to see a candidate, when we talk to them, they still say, well, you know, i'm not really, really sure who i like best. >> it has to drive a candidate crazy. you spend all of this money. we haven't talked about jeb bush. i don't want to say he is invisible in iowa but he is not talked about much. it is disappointing if you're a fan. he spent millions of dollars and it is coming down to, you know, what, 4, 5% for jeb bush. what happens to jeb bush after? >> has to go to new hampshire. it is a totally. different kind of state. different people live. there he is doing okay in the polls up there at the moment. but of course, it can affect what happens in new hampshire. and that is the way the rest of this race is going to go. what happens in one state affects the next one. what happens in that state affects the next one. after new hampshire it will be south carolina. after south carolina, nevada. that is what makes the
do well in one state it will affect what they do. >> you can't raise money going forward either. it breaks down, iowa is considered the state that is the process. no distros any of the candidates but you start to look at huckabee. you look at carly fiorina. and among the governors, we mentioned jeb bush. i guess their race is between the governors. who is the best of the worst of the governors that can move on. >> especially kasich and christie. they've had their moments. they've gotten a lot of press but haven't really climbed in the polls much. all of these big governors of big states, important states, just haven't caught fire. and a lot itself has to do with the fact that people are just ready for something different it looks like. >> it will interesting to watch, again, we have all day on sunday to get through and then you kind of have up until the witching hour of 7:00 p.m. on monday night when it all comes together. it is over so quickly.
and the state takes care of all of this. of theirs. democrats take care of theirs. it starts at 7:00. they do their debates with each other and then they do their voting and hopefully in a couple of hours, we have a winner on the same night. >> and then it is not necessarily who will win the presidential nomination when all whoever wins on monday night only gets the percentage of the delegates that they have won in the votes so if you've got 30% of the vote, you get three delegates. let's say you got 10 delegates. it is a proportional distribution of delegates. >> you're hurting my head. this is sunday morning and you start doing all of. that i know it is complicated and it is going to be close. >> and maybe surprises. >> it is not winner take all. you divvy up the delegates by how much you get. >> that makes more sense. sunday morning, candace, we'll send it back to you. we have a lot more coming up later today. we'll keep you poetszed on what
is happening on the campaign trail and we'll closely monitor what happens on monday. but reporting from des moines, iowa, keith cate along with dr. susan mcmanus. back t. thank you very much. and your vote coverage continues throughout the iowa caulks, he will -- caucuses. he will continue to bring you live reports on monday. after the iowa caucuses, i'll be travelling to new hampshire to can bring you the latest from the primaries. stay with news channel 8 for the white house. coming up after the break, hillary clinton's e-mail scandal is back to haunt her. the new accusations she is facing that many fear will cost her the white house. campaign trail. terrorism, coming up, the punishment florida lawmakers are debating when it comes to

>> you call in a bomb threat today to a school, that is a felony. if you threaten to go shoot the school up or go shoot people up. that is a misdemeanor. >> as we see across the nation, these credible threats of violence must be taken seriously. >> anyone caught making a verbal threat or writing one on social media could be hit with a felony. >> the pasco county sheriff's office cited a similar recent prank threat as a reason why there have to be uniform penalties for bomb threats and shootings. >> putting online it could be a misdemeanor if it affected school fuks however it didn't affect school function but it sure affected law enforcement function. >> saying a juvenile made terroristic threats could ruin the rest of their lives. >> we have to be careful when we're escalating crimes for juveniles, crimes for other folks that may do something dumb but aren't a threat to society and i'm not sure i want to label a high school student as a
15 years behind bars and pay 10 thousand dollars under the bill but a judge could use discretion and shave off prison time or put a juvenile into a diversion program. in tallahassee, matt galka. news chan. >> coming up after the break, how many of hillary clinton's e-mails were deemed top secret. she is campaigning for first lady, the backing ted cruz is

called it over classification run amuck. some may have impressions of secretary clinton that have nothing to do with the e-mail situation. >> i don't like bill clinton so i don't like hillariry. i know that sounds bad but i feel he was in the office for awhile and i don't want another bill clinton in the office. i wouldn't vote for her. >> would the e-mails with hillary, do they bother you at all? >> not really. i'm mostly deciding because of immigration. that is what is really getting me. immigration, education. >> bernie sanders had down played the clinton e-mail scandal but that was prior to his big jump in the polls. we'll see how all of that plays out in the final days of the the iowa caucuses. ted cruz is running just behind donald trump in the iowa caucuses, the texas senator bringing in the closest allies.

>> much more animated and much more electric. >> he is a good debater and speaker. he is a man of integrity and that is what i look for in a leader. >> cruz's family chatted up voters in the lobby and you can see heidi cruz has a common while campaigning hard. amazing first lady. >> are you the secret weapon? gl our team is the candidate and our team. i can take no credited kre. >> ted cruz lost critical support over the last few weeks, including evangelicals. they registered the final vote. it shows ted cruz trails trump by five points. 23 to 28. donald trump also has his family in town. they're hoping to get last minute votes. it is very close and very personal at this late stage in the game. in des moines, i'm national correspondent chance sefrpz. our team coverage from iowa
