8:12 am
``>> i love it. ``>> reporter: while rubio and ``clinton held meetings last ``night, the race is more ``complicate ``complicated, with the ``possibility of bloomberg running ``as an independent. ``bloomberg may run come march, ``but only if donald trump, ted ``cruz or bernie sanders are their ``party's nominees. ``trump supporter taylor becker. ``>> i think bloomberg getting in ``would be exciting. ``i don't know i'd support him, ``but i'd love to see another ``billionaire with his own money ``and his own mission. ``>> reporter: in iowa saturday, ``hundreds of trump supporters ``waited more than six hours. ``temperatures in the teens. ``to hear him speak. ``it's what he said earlier in the ``day about his own popularity ``that turned heads. ``>> i could stand in the middle ``of fifth avenue and shoot ``somebody and i wouldn't lose ``voters. ``it's incredible. ``>> i have no intention of ``shooting anybody in the ``campaign. ``>> reporter: the battle for the ``democratic nomination, also
8:13 am
``hillary clinton finds herself in ``an increasingly competitive race ``against bernie sanders. ``>> i will promise you this, if ``you give me the boost in the ``iowa caucuses to send me on the ``way to the nomination, i will ``come back often to campaign, to ``win iowa in november. ``>> here in muscatine, at the ``high school, donald trump will ``hold another rally. ``before he does, he plans to go ``to church here. ``the evangelical vote is ``considered essential for anyone ``who wants to win in iowa. `` chuck todd is moderator of ``"meet the press." ``how are you? ``>> good morning, jose. ``>> let's talk a little about ``bloomberg first. ``he's considering going into the ``race, but it seems like he's ``putting a lot of barriers to the
8:14 am
``if, if, if, before i decide to ``go in, right sf ? ``>> that's right. ``what it tells you is if hillary ``clinton is the democratic ``nominee, he's not going to run. ``if it looks like she can get the ``nomination, he won't run. ``i think he thinks she is good ``enough to be president. ``if marco rubio, jeb bush, chris ``christie or john kasich were ``looking strong on the republican ``side, bloomberg wouldn't run. ``he put the parameters up. ``sanders and trump or cruz. ``it's because he wants to be ``president, he's just never found ``a viable path. ``i think he believes there ``actually would be a viable path ``for a third party candidacy if ``you had more of an extreme ``nominee on both ends -- being ``nominated in both parties, and ``sanders-cruz is what he looks ``at. ``>> a lot of the focus is on iowa ``as he head into the caucus next ``monday. ``the editorial board of the "des ``moines register" endorsing rubio ``and clinton. ``when it comes to the ``endorsements, especially in ``2016, how much influence do they
8:15 am
``>> very little. ``if a newspaper endorsement has ``some influence, it's more in a ``democratic primary than a ``republican one. ``particularly, the "des moines ``register," it's known as a ``left-leaning editorial page. ``not the newspaper itself but the ``editorial page. ``it's more likely there are some ``caucus goers that might be ``influenced about -- on the ``democratic side, less on the ``republican side. ``look, i think what's remarkable ``about this last week in iowa, ``both sides are incredibly close. ``but the republican candidates, ``front runners, cruz and trump, ``it's nasty. ``they're going after each other ``on the air. ``as close as clinton and sanders ``are, the one thing we don't see, ``negative ads. ``>> what was interesting also ``yesterday at trump's rally is ``chuck was there, and i'm ``wondering if you're seeing the ``establishment republicans going ``toward trump, thinking it may be ``cruz. ``>> i think that tells you a lot ``about ted cruz's reputation in
8:16 am
``it is very hard to see -- to ``find a republican senator that ``will say nice things about ted ``cruz. ``the question, jose, is whether ``these establishment republican ``types, are they warming to trump ``only because the alternative is ``cruz, or are they warming to ``trump because they can kill cruz ``and they think, we'll kill trump ``later? ``if i'm trump, i don't assume ``these people are with me. ``i think they're with me because ``he's not ted cruz. ``>> chuck, thanks. ``good to see you. ``>> you got it, brother. ``>> take care, man. `` this morning, you can join, ``press." ``his guests include donald trump, ``bernie sanders and hillary ``clinton. ``lots to talk about there. ``we are keeping an eye on a ``strong earthquake that hit ``alaska. ``7.1 quake striking there early ``this morning, centered in a ``remote area. ``strong shaking was felt more ``than 160 miles away in ``anchorage, sending as you can ``see, items tumbling from ``shelves. ``residents describe it as being
8:17 am
``no reports of major damage or ``injuries. `` a man hunt is underway for ``three inmates who made an escape ``from a southern california jail. ``officials say they broke out of ``the maximum security facility by ``sawing through steel bars and ``making their way through ``plumbing tunnels to get to the ``roof. ``once there, they repelled to the ``ground using a makeshift rope. ``prison officials say it's not ``clear if the men had outside ``help. ``the three were being held on ``charges including murder, ``kidnapping and torture, and are ``described as extremely ``dangerous. `` let's get a look at some of ``the rest of the country's ``forecasts. ``there's been so much focus on ``the storm here. ``things going on in the rest of ``the country, and a cool picture ``from space, i understand. ``who knew? ``we have a picture of the ``northern lights as seen from the ``international space station. ``how awesome is this? ``that is on my bucket list, to ``ever see the northern lights. ``from space. ``but this is from a british
