7:07 am
this state is a must win for some. even as rubio picks up an endorsement from bobby jindal and takes aim at ted cruz. >> if you get a call on tuesday night saying i dropped out. it is not true. keep voting. >> reporter: that is a dig at the senator's campaign. cruz looking ahead and confident. though slipping in new hampshire polls, but in the top tier nationally. >> the two big initiatives i'm running on, repealing every word of obamacare and adopting a simple flat tax so you fill out your tax on a post card and abolish the irs. >> reporter: what can we expect to see at tonight's debate? look for immigration to be one of the major topics. it is important for marco rubio's potential vulnerabilities and what donald trump likes to talk about. we could see the republican field pounce on that.
7:08 am
on theemocratic side, bernie sanders holds a lead over hillary clinton in the granite state. the question is will hillary be able to come back for the primary? we have kristen welker with the latest. >> reporter: good morning, sheinelle. senator sanders has a 20-point lead over secretary clinton. she added events to her schedule today. she is bringing in an army of volunteers and telling supporters don't give up. with the democratic race growing more combative, hillary clinton and bernie sanders faced off at a party dinner. >> the only way we create the change that we need is through a political revolution. >> i will spend all my tomorrows doing everything i can to make your tomorrows better. >> reporter: following a day filled with fireworks. >> i want to say a word to the extraordinary people,

7:10 am
we want to see things happen. >> reporter: clinton is calling in reinforcements hoping for a repeat. she was trailing barack obama here, but now she is looking to pullahead. and during the debate this week, secretary clinton said she would look into the possibility of releasing the transcripts of paid speeches. so far the campaign has not released anything and officials tell me they are looking into it. meanwhile, today, sanders and clinton have a busy day of campaigning ahead. sheinelle. >> kristen welker, thank you. >> alice jordan is here with us. and steve kornacki is here with us as well. good morning to you. >> steve, let's start with you and let's start with donald trump. a commanding lead in new
7:11 am
some polls show him flipping nationally. he skipped the debate in iowa, but expected to be on the stage tonight. let's talk about what he has to . is new hampshire a must-win moment for trump? >> i think it pretty much is. the 13--point lead, the eight day stretch is the most volatile eight days in american politics. you remember hillary clinton and barack obama, she was trailing at this point in new hampshire by double digits. she came back and won on primary day. the cliche is a lot can happen in a short period of time in politics. that is true this week. we have seen marco rubio starting to move up significantly in the polls here. donald trump is maybe sliding back a bit. he is not growing. if you are donald trump and lost iowa and turn around and follow hampshire, especially after leading, it is really hard to see how he can jump start his campaign in later stages.
7:12 am
board steadily or seen to be beating expectations steadily to stay viable in the later contests. he has to come out with a win tuesday or he is in trouble. >> alice, steve mentioned marco rubio. up six points in a recent poll. you have the outsider candidates or so-called outsider candidates. ted cruz and donald trump going after him tonight. you also have kasich and christie and governor bush as well. campaigns on life support. how big is the bull's-eye on marco rubio's back in the debate tonight in new hampshire? >> he is the one they have to take down. he is cutting into the vote margin. especially for christie and kasich. it is make or break. he has a poor showing. he is probably out. kasich has about 2.5. doesn't look good for him. kasich has put all resources in new hampshire. he does have the best ground game of anyone.
7:13 am
>> and steve, let's talk about bernie sanders for a moment. enjoying a commanding lead in new hampshire. new hampshire has been kind to the clintons. with bill clinton in the past. his campaign. and hillary clinton in 2008. so is there any sense that support will perhaps turn out on tuesday and give c cnton a bit of a surprise victory? >> i think there is an expectation this will tighten. you have polls showing between 20 or 30 points for sanders. most people think that will tighten. when you look at the clinton family history here, you think of hillary clinton obviously coming back and winning in 2008, but the other one was bill clinton in 1992. we remember new hampshire as the state that made him the comeback kid. what we forget is he actually lost new hampshire that night by eight points to paul tsongas. that is how he called himself the comeback kid. that is something to keep in mind. i think the clinton campaign wowod likeo get out of new hampshire, they would like to
7:14 am
they like to close with some momentum. they like to be able to tell the media, look, bernie sanders is from next door. he is from vermont. a huge advantage there. there is not a huge advantage to being from vermont here in new hampshire. that is another story. they will say that. they want the media to put an asterisk on it. they want to say we beat expectations. >> elise, quickly. after new hampshire, south carolina primary. hillary clinton doing very well in south carolina. do very well around the south as well. after new hampshire, is there a path for bernie sanders? >> i think it just depends on how successful bernie is at expanding his message beyond non-white voters and if he can reach more diverse audiences. so far, he hasn't been successful. >> it is exciting to watch. elise and steve, thank you for talking with us this morning.
7:15 am

7:16 am
as the sun is set to rise in san francisco, soon more fans will hit the streets. 1 million came here for the super bowl, but only 70,000 will go to the game. >> i would do anything to get a ticket to the game. i'd love to. i can't afford it. >> reporter: a seat near the 50 yard line could set you back $20,000. the prices are sky high in the upper deck. $3,000 and a pair of binoculars for section 411. >> the panthers don't go to the super bowl every day. >> reporter: randall dropped nearly $5,000 for his seats. >> what is a few thousand dollars in the sands of time? >> reporter: before the game, drama. the commissioner confirming the league is reviewing allegations against peyton manning and whether the superstar quarterback received hgh. human growth hormone.

7:18 am
ground here. fbi is leading the charge. they say the super bowl will be among the safest to be anywhere in the country on sunday. sheinelle. >> miguel almaguer, thank you. dylan dreyer also in santa clara this morning with a check of the forecast. dylan, you're wearing a coat. >> i'm wearing a coat. it is freezing. 45 degrees here. i would have been more prepared for standing out in the snow. that's what i'm used to. i did not bring my hand warmers. we did have snowfall across new england yesterday. we saw this as a little engine that could kind of storm. the snow just dumped on rhode island and this is in warwick, steady snow. connecticut and massachusetts pick up nearly a foot of snow. we haven't really seen this driving conditions all that much this winter. it was tough for the cars to get used to that and getting used to shoveling off the snow. we will see a lot of the snow melt away.
