7:08 am
saturday's debate, with opponents like governor chris christie taking aim for rubio's repeated use of the exact same attack lines against president obama. rubio defended his comments, as we talked over a cup of coffee at a local diner. >> let's dispel the fiction, that barack obama doesn't know what he's doing. >> you repeated the same thing four times. >> i'll say it again. barack obama is trying to change america and is doing damage to the country. >> by repeating it, it played to the notion that you are a bit contrived, rehearsed. >> that's silly. understand, people when they're running for office will say whatever they need to say. >> called marco robot. a headline that said, you choked, it didn't bother you? >> it can't affect you. on our website, we raised more money on the first hour of that debates. >> chris christie said, let's
7:09 am
eight years ago, of electing a first-term senator. making the comparison between you and president obama. what do you and president obama have in common, in terms of what you represent? >> i have different experiences than he had. i served in the third largest state in the country for four years. we had real achievements in florida. in the senate, i had achievements. >> is your youth an advantage or disadvantage? >> i embrace it. it's who i am. i haven't lived as long as some people running for president but i've done more than most of them. >> your third place showing in iowa, strong third place, has put a lot of expectations on you, in terms of going forward here. what does that mean in terms of what happens in new hampshire? >> this is a very unusual election. i think it'd be a mistake to judge this election by any of the metrics of past elections. we've never had six or seven well-funded, credible candidates running for president on the republican side at the same time. i think the nomination is going to take a little longer and be a different process than in the past.
7:10 am
>> but he is looking a bit past the primaries. rubio says he would beat the democratic nominee, whether it be bernie sanders or hillary clinton. savannah, he is owning the repetition of the attack lines against president obama. >> lester, thanks so much. i know you'll have more on the latest twists and turns on "nightly" tonight from new hampshire. let's bring in chuck todd and mark, manager of "bloomberg politics." first, donald trump repeated a vulgar term used by a supporter at a rally last night. shocked? >> any other candidate who did that, the staff would say, we can lose the primary over this. trump and his team loved it. the crowd loved it. this symbolizes the trump campaign. different and not politically correct. >> donald trump said something offensive to somebody.
7:11 am
>> let's talk about the race. i won't move to who places second right away. let's not miss who may place first. donald trump. if i told you that six month ago, what would you have said? >> the combination of trump and sanders. we talk about the upsets in the history of the new hampshire primary. when the country is aangry, the first place to tell us is new hampshire. they'll hand us donald trump and bernie sanders. the establishment of both parties are frightened of. the more they express their fear, the more some voters want to rally around them. this is a huge, symbolic message that's being sent. >> the people of the establishment say, they can win new hampshire but they'll never win the nominee. they've been underestimated the whole cycle. assume they win big tonight, they'll speak to the biggest autd audiences they ever have in the context of becoming the presidential candidate.
7:12 am
fourth for republican, hillary clinton has to make a case, here's why the other states shouldn't follow suit. >> for anyone hoping new hampshire would provide clarity as to the trump alternative in the race, no longer going to happen. is it all because of what happened on saturday night with marco rubio and the debate? >> it is all because of that. rubio doing the face plant at the debate, it was an opportunity. he had the opportunity to seize the nomination. he had an opportunity -- there were people ready to rally around his campaign. you would have seen a flood of endorsements. a flood of money. a flood of -- and probably a whittling of the field. none of the other candidates think, hey, rubio has a glass jaw. >> they all say they're going to south carolina. every last one. >> they have no reason not to. saturday night, another debate. if you're chris christie or you're marco rubio, why not go? get on the debate stage and try again. marco rubio went from having, as
7:13 am
at least the establishment wing part of the nomination in his hands, to now potentially having his nomination in mortal danger. he could finish second tonight and turn it around again. >> let's talk about hillary clinton. she expects to lose here. the only issue for everyone, it seems, is by how much. what will these next days be like for her if she does, in fact, lose here? >> if the polls are right, and it's double digits, it is going to be stories about joe biden, michael bloomberg. bernie sanders is already outraising her and will with more money. nevada will suddenly look like it's in play. the national polls will show bernie sanders ahead of hillary clinton. this is going to be the most painful three weeks before the south carolina primary for her since she's had in february 2008. >> thank you so much. we'll have more from here in new hampshire coming up, including live interviews with jeb bush and chris christie. for now, matt, up to you in new york. >> we'll be back with you in a couple minutes.
7:14 am
against the zika virus. the obama administration now asking congress for $1.8 billion in emergency funding. health experts are once again warning americans considering trips to latin america and the caribbeans. tom costello is covering this outbreak for us. >> we have 51 cases of zika in the united states according to the cdc. people who returned to the country, they've contracted zika abroad. we know of 16 in florida alone. while we don't yet have any known cases of mosquito transmitted zika in the u.s., thousands of americans travel south of the u.s. border every day. >> reporter: with spring break weeks away, the cdc's warning for anyone traveling to the caribbean or latin america is suddenly taking on added urgency. millions of people in the region are expected to contract zika this year. already in brazil, 4,000 babies diagnosed with abnormally small heads and brains. >> we're not cancelling spring break. we're telling people who are

up mosquito control efforts. residents told to get rid of standing water. it can be a breeding ground for mosquitos. >> researchers say there's a lot about zika they don't understand. whether the virus can be transmitted through saliva and urine, and which trimester of baby might be most at risk. the mosquito likes to bite during the day rather than at dusk. if you travel to the areas and you're not pregnant but concerned, wear repellant and try to cover your arms and legs. >> you mention td olympics. the international pressure is mounting every single day on the brazilians to get this under control before the games start in august. >> this morning, we heard from the kenyans who say, if the brazilians don't get it under control, the kenyans may not send their own team to the olympics. the kenyans are supposed to do very well. >> tom, thank you very much. we've got breaking news in germany overnight. at least nine people killed.

8:04 am
yesterday, you tweeted he's a loser loser, a liar and whiner, which that could be out of trump's vocabulary book. >> giving him a taste of what he gives. that's what bullies need from time to time. he has gone bankrupt four times. he whines when it doesn't go perfectly for him. he insults his way to the nomination. it's not going to work. i don't think people believe that. >> if he wins tonight, as polls suggest he might, what are new hampmpire voters saying? >> people are angry with washington, d.c. my job is to say, i agree. let's fix it. fears. give them a solid agenda on how to fix it. it's what i did when i was governor of the state of florida. >> your mom said maybe you were too polite in the campaign. do you agree. >> after that last tweet i did, she probably doesn't necessarily think that anymore. we'll see. appreciate it very much. coming up, tom brokaw explores the importance of the

8:21 am
nominates bernie sanders and donald trump. >> right. then the question is, which of the polls are correct? they're all over the place. those two stayed in number one. i think a big part of the issue, what will happen today, is who survives? not just who wins. and who has to get out of the race. it's the kasich race, also the bush race, also the christie race. it's the jeb bush race. those people downstream have other hopes beyond new hampshire. new hampshire, take it seriously. >> we'll see how tickets out of here there are tonight. tom brokaw, thank you so much. >> glad to be here. >> back to matt. >> you going to catch a plane, savannah, and we'll see you here tomorrow. nice job and thank you very much. coming up, ben stiller on why it was time to bring derek zoolander back to the big screen.

8:58 am
40 and 50 knots, about 57 miles per hour. that was thursday night. the forecast got worse in the next day or two. they had plenty of warning. they made a decision, i don't know if it was for money or what -- >> they thought they'd beat the storm. >> every day they're out of place, it costs them money. >> right. >> the fact is, they should have never done it. the forecast -- >> look at the flying furniture. the damage you see on board. and we have some passengers describing how it all went down. >> i'm sure there's going to be some sort of investigation. >> 30 foot waves, you know. it's like a 30 degree tilt. it was insane. >> i was hanging on because you would roll out of bed if you didn't hang on. >> i realize it was really serious. i was sitting at ingting on the chair at the bar. four legs came up and i fell out of the chair, essentially.
8:59 am
was unpleasant, the ship remained seaworthy. that's like saying, godzilla was a little bit of a lizard. come on. >> one of the passengers said the ship was almost at a 30 degree angle, with the waves. >> it probably felt like it. >> would you go on another cruise if you experienced something like that? >> i would have hard pressed to go back. but they are -- royal caribbean is offering passengers a full refund for this trip. also, 50% off of a future cruise, if they so dare or choose. i think there is going to certainly be an investigation into it. no doubt. >> i'm going to try one of al's famous transitions. can't catch a cruz in new hampshire. hampshire. >> maybe you can. >> there's a port there. >> oh. >> i think it's why it was named portsmouth. >> anyway, we have willie and

9:01 am
bernie sanders has a significant lead. 56% over hillary clinton's 40%. she closed the gap slightly. predictions are right now that bernie sanders likely will pull out a victory here. in the democratic race, you have the talk of hillary clinton. how does she recover? is south carolina her fire wall? who comes in second? a three-way tie in the gop. that would be a long night, number one. number two, you'd have to see who can take their ground game to the next step and whether or not they'll eventually take on trump. >> if you get the pack of second place among republicans, i don't see anyone getting out. unless they run out of money. a lot of people can make the case to move on. last night, donald trump across the street at the hockey arena. 5,000 people were there. what's getting attention is what he repeated from a woman in the crowd right in front of him. he amplified it and repeated it.
9:02 am

to see bill clinton on the campaign trail with his wife. this is the second day -- yesterday was the second day in a row that bill clinton was the big dog as he's referred to in the world of politics, going after bernie sanders in this very aggressive way. you heard him there say, i'm hope holding back, really, because i want to say some other things. among the things he did actually say, the bernie sanders campaign is being sexist and accused the campaign of being hypocrites regarding the ideas sanders posed. willie and i have been out on the streets talking to different people in new hampshire. the live free or die motto is something they take so seriously. about 44% of the voters here are undeclared. between 4% to 5% of the people, independent. if you want to get a person from new hampshire riled up, say what is undeclared? no one owns me. you won't know my vote until i walk in and cast the vote. today, they'll decide. >> there's a famous line new
