7:02 am
>> can hillary eke out a victory against a surging bernie sanders? >> and can battle tested ted cruz pull out a win against donald trump and if cruz doesn't win is he done? then there's the question of marco rubio. is he surging at ectly the right time? we have team coverage this morning and start with abc's jon karl who is covering the republicans. jon, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan. this is it. the final weekend before those first in the nation iowa caucuses. and that frenzy of political activity you were talking about is seen on the airwaves and on the ground, in fact, republican candidates alone have 42 campaign events here in iowa just today. it's down to the wire time in iowa. >> today i'm here three days away to ask you to caucus for me on monday night. >> reporter: if you see a candidate who washington embraces, run and hide. >> reporter: while his rivals crisscross the state of iowa donald trump was in new

7:04 am
imworking to be the candidate of the american people. >> reporter: marco rubio was hoping for a last-minute surge in iowa signing this trump bashing holiday card from a supporter. >> so, mark cure your calendar for february 1st. go rock your caucus. remember friends don't -- friends don't let friends vote for trump. >> reporter: after his brief foray in new hampshire donald trump is coming back to iowa later today campaigning virtually nonstop in iowa between now and the caucuses on monday night. >> a lot of busy days ahead of us, jon karl, thank you. >> jon is not going anywhere between now and iowa. in the democratic race hillary clinton's use of her e-mail server is dogging her during these last days before the caucuses. the state department will not release 22 of them because they contain top secret information. abc's cecilia vega is covering the former secretary of state in des moines. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: paula, good morning to you. this is not what hillary clinton
7:05 am
wants to be talking about two days before the caucuses here, these headlines could not have come at a worse time for her. overnight hillary clinton and her not so secret weapon campaigning together in iowa. >> i brought a pretty good warm-up act, don't you think? >> reporter: bill clinton center stage. >> she's never touched a thing she didn't make better. >> reporter: bill telling abc news exclusively the battle is not over yet. >> this is a dog fight. you fight till the last hour. >> reporter: a power couple joining forces on everything from the gop's vision. >> i just fundamentally disagree. >> reporter: to the economy. >> we are not going back to that kind of failed economy. >> reporter: hillary clinton also setting her sights on the one person in her line of fire, bernie sanders. >> i'd rather underpromise and overdeliver. >> reporter: the one thing they didn't address, those e-mails. the state department declaring 22 e-mails from clinton's
7:06 am
private account top secret, clinton's campaign calling for the e-mails to be made public saying this appears to be overclassification run amuck. but sanders sticking to that now famous line. >> the american people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn e-mails. >> reporter: releasing a statement saying voters deserve a discussion of the issues. he is still drawing a crowd, more than a thousand people coming out to see sanders overnight. >> i get a little bit tired when you have establishment folks saying, bernie, you're thinking too big and i say, the hell with that. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: yeah, those crowds still showing up for bernie sanders. hillary clinton is, of course, back on the campaign trail today and for the first time since her campaign launched joined by the entire clinton family, bill and chelsea. this is the candidate's schedule, all of them in iowa. three full pages, dan, that is how busy these guys are out
7:07 am
here. it is a mad dash to the finish line. >> that's how busy you will be. we will see you tonight when you anchor "world news tonight" from iowa. cecilia, thank you. now, though, let's bring in abc news political analyst matt dowd. matt, good morning to you. thanks for coming in. how much should earthquake be worried about this e-mail development? >> i think it'll continue to dog her until all the e-mails come out and the justice department and fbi finishes their investigation. i think this is going to -- it goes to a vulnerability she has which she continues to have which is on trust and a reminder to voters of the '90s of the part they didn't like about the '90s. it will hurt her in the general election. the question that primary is, does it undermine her argument about electability with this hanging out there? >> right, exactly and electability is one of the issues hanging over bernie so particularly pertinent now. the republican side, this is where things get truly interesting. what is your view of the state of play right now in the republican side?
7:08 am
>> i think the odds are still that donald trump wins iowa and then in the aftermath of that probably wins new hampshire. that's the odds on today. i think the person to watch is marco rubio. marco rubio had a really good debate, ted cruz had a really bad debate the other night and in the course of that i think it gives marco rubio oxygen to rise. there is a possibility he could finish second in iowa. if he does that, this becomes a two-person race between donald trump and marco rubio and it's anybody's guess what happens after that. >> a game-changing development potentially. appreciate it. you'll be with us straight through the finish. we appreciate it. i want to remind everybody abc news is the place to be for complete coverage of the caucuses in iowa. george and robin will report live from iowa and david muir anchoring live from iowa and george and the whole team standing by to bring you the latest news the instant it happens. don't forget next saturday the republican debate live from new hampshire at 8:00 eastern right

7:11 am
to get rid of the places where the mosquitoes are breeding. we're covering up long sleeves using repellant. that way we'll be sure we don't come home with zika virus. dan. >> a massive effort ahead. rich, stay safe. thank you. we have another disturbing health headline one week before the super bowl the nfl says concussions soared to a four-year high and helmet-to-helmet hits are way up too. ryan smith is on the story. >> reporter: a hard hit for the nfl. just days away from the biggest game of the year. super bowl 50, the league releasing this report friday staying diagnosed concussions in the nfl increased 58% this regular season with a staggering 271 players sidelined since the preseason in 2015. compare that to the 206 concussions reported in 2014. it discussed on espn's "nfl insiders" roundtable. >> heading in the wrong direction. >> reporter: the most startling
7:12 am
helmet-to-helmet collisions with 92 reported this year. in 2014, the nfl only reported 58. the nfl telling abc news the reasons for increases in concussions are unclear. but it will look at any significant trends over the next several weeks. the numbers echoing what some claim is a growing problem for the league and for football on all levels. seven high school players reportedly died as a direct result of football-related injuries. the nfl telling us, safety is a priority last december. but acknowledging concussions remain a risk. >> the priority of the leagues is to protect player health and safety. >> do you think we can ever eliminate concussions from the sport. >> as much contact as there is in the game there will always be injuries and concussion is a very difficult problem to solve over time. >> reporter: for "good morning america," ryan smith, abc news, new york. >> our thanks to ryan. such a staggering increase but they think one of the reasons may simply be because the number
7:13 am
of players screened for concussions this past season doubled so that could be one of the explainers, as well. >> a good bit of context. over to dr. ron claiborne for a look at the other stories. what's happening, sir? >> i don't know. just kidding. good morning to you, dan and paula. sara haines, good morning, good morning, everyone. we begin with a scare in the air for passengers aboard an air canada flight from newark to vancouver. a passenger took this snapshot inside the cabin. just as oxygen masks were dropped. the plane descending 4,000 feet in eight minutes making an emergency landing in toronto where emergency crews were standing by. >> take the time on the runway. vehicles are standing by. >> are you planning on rolling long or do you know? >> yeah, we'll be long. >> reporter: no one injured and a pressurization problem caused on the air-conditioning is being blamed. five snowmobilers were killed in a massive avalanche in british columbia and canada. three were caught in the town of

7:16 am
