7:10 am
the investigation was meant, in part, to sink clinton's poll nu clinton's inquiry, quote, has zero credibility left but the former secretary of state will testify to the committee next week. this morning, the clinton campaign is telling vice president joe biden to make up his mind about running for president. clinton and senator bernie sanders are reaping the rewards from tuesday night's debate. many democrats are asking if there is still even an opening for joe biden. nancy cordes is in des moines iowa, where the first in the nation caucuses are three and a half months away now. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the clinton campaign is subtly but upping the pressure on vice president biden to announce his intentions. they feel this field has been in limbo long enough. >> did we have a good debate last night? we will win nevada for the democrats to keep a democrat in the white house! >> reporter: an energized hillary clinton stayed in nevada wednesday after a debate

7:12 am
performance only made it more clear why biden needs to run. >> there really isn't a pier for her on the stage and i think having the vice president on the stage, it gives democrats a good alternative. it would give us our primary a boost. >> reporter: if biden does get in the race he'll attend the second democratic debate here in des moines on november 14th. check out another signed that sander is feeling good after his performance on tuesday night. here he is busting out the dance moves with ellen at a taping in california yesterday. the show is slated to air this afternoon. >> thanks nancy. something i thought i would never see, bernie sanders and ellen. >> right, dancing. he is also now political target for billionaire donald trump, the republican front-runner hit the vermont senator hard in wednesday's rally in richmond virginia. trump says sanders is pushing clinton to the left. >> i watched hillary last night.
7:13 am
we are going to give this and that and a poor woman to give everything away because this maniac standing on her right is giving everything away so she is following. that is what is happening! this socialist/communist, okay? nobody wants to say it. >> cbs news contributor frank luntz is with us. good morning. >> it's always unnecessary. donald trump finds the line and then crosses it and then jumps a mile beyond it. and it's part of the reason why kevin mccarthy went through what he did why you see so much anger, so much frustrati it's happening on both sides of the political focus groups that i'm doing, it is tough to make it through the three hours, because people are just so mad. you know what? trump is talking to them. he really is relating to them. he is leading in iowa new hampshire, south carolina, and nevada, we found in our work the first four states. my advice to viewers, stop looking at the national polls and follow those first four states because, charlie, nobody
7:14 am
has ever won those first states and not won the nomination and trump is ahead in all four. >> one more question about trump. is this a new strategy for him to attack democrats? is he going to focus more on democrats now than he is on republicans? >> ts hard to tellit is hard to tell. we have never seen a republican attack republicans the way he has and in that clip he left hillary clinton alone but it doesn't bother other republicans. when we have shown those clips to focus groups of him ripping into on the gop candidates they laugh and want to see more. it's entertainment for them. >> he seems to use social media, frank, very effectively. how much of a difference does that make that you can get the good and bad and oh, so ugly out so quickly for him. >> i haven't talked about this before but we have been looking at content of social media and for the first time conservative social media is more negative more vicious and more personal in the attacks than left wing social media and trump is provoking it and stoking it. all you have to do is look at
7:15 am
what happened after the democratic debate when clinton and sanders people were actually complimenting each other. then look at the republican social media and it is vicious. every day, every hour they are coming after each other. we have never seen that before. >> how has trump complicated jeb bush and marco rubio and other republicans candidates attempt to gain momentum? >> we have heard they don't get the air time because of all the things trump is saying. he is so telegenic you want to focus on him but deeper than that because trump support is deeper than that. the more that we inform people about where trump stands, they don't break from him. bernie sanders has the weakest support of any candidate that ean bernie sanders. ben carson. trump, over 80% of trump voters say they are going to stay with him no matter what they learn and that makes it hard for rubio and bush to get traction. >> frank luntz, thank you so much. >> pleasure. a fast moving wildfire near austin, texas, has destroyed nine homes and is threatening more than 100 others.

i'm chris bosh. when i was sidelined with blood clots in my lung it was serious. fortunately, my doctor had a game plan. treatment with xarelto®. hey guys! hey, finally, somebody i can look up to... ...besides arnie. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin there's limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know i tried warfarin but the blood testing and dietary restrictions... don't get me started on that. i didn't have to. we started on xarelto®. nice pass.

safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto® watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto® tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto® is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto®... ask your doctor about xarelto®. okay. so everyone is saying, "hey! you gotta get fios!" but why? why fios? well fios is a 100 percent fiber optic network,
