♪ a new cbs news battleground tracker poll shows donald trump is back in the lead this morning in all three early voting states. senator ted cruz is second in iowa. cruz scores highest when iowa republicans are asked who is ready to be commander in chief. he earned 67%. marco rubio is next at 51% and 49% say donald trump. political strategist karl rove led both of president bush's white house bids and looking deeper into history to a possible guide for today's candidates. his new book is "the triumph of william mckinley why the election of 1896 still matters.
>> it is published by a division of cbs. >> thank you for having me here. americans politics leading up to the 1896 election looks like politics today. the political system is broken and we have divided government and we have five presidential elections in a row in which nobody gets 50% of the vote and acrimony in congress today makes it look like kids' play and we have divided government. the republicans during a 24-year period controlled the white house and house and senate two years and democrats two years and the other 20 years divided government. the economy that is rapidly changing, disrupting new technologies and changing demgraphy in the country and whole political system is broken and along comes william mckinley and 1896 election we have a a realignment and the next 36 years the republicans dominate the scene and one of the great elections in american history but we don't talk about much about it. we certainly don't talk about the prime actor in the drama
william mckinley. >> to underscore what you just said. republicans have lost the popular vote in five of the past six presidential elections. what is it that mick mckinley did differently to change the republican base? who did reach out to? >> he modernizes the republican party. a wide ankle party in the north and in the south the votes white and black republicans are being extinguished by violence and fraud by the democrats. he realizes this can't continue. what he does is he reaches out to the new changing demgraphy of american. the first republican leader to be endorsed by the hierarchy and brings minors and poring geese fishermen and ukrainian tailors. an amazing group of -- >> he is the first presidential candidate of either party to openly and actively seek the support of black voters during the primary. march of 1895 he goes to jacksonville, florida, and
savannah, georgia, and does something no candidate has ever done before and that is appear in front of a black audience and say i'm running for president, i need your spouupport. >> this is fascinating for me. mitt romney won 59% of the white vote and george bush won 58% of the white vote. >> if you look back in history like 1994 is when ronald reagan did winning 49 states. >> romney didn't do well among the nonwhite vote. the next republican candidate in order to win has to do better among the nonwhite vote. >> mckinley learned that elections are about addition and not subtraction. >> bring us back to the republican campaign in 2015. if you watch that debate going on in the republican party, is anybody reaching out to new demo graphics? is anybody reaching out? >> sure. lots of candidates got the capacity in a general election
to do well among latinos. >> who? >> bush and rubio, do particularly well. the younger candidates whether rubio or to some degree, cruz and, to some degree, kasich ensome degree, christie who can do well among the millennials. they moved from obama in 2008 and moved against him the next election was people ages 18 to 29. >> obama got less and obama didn't pick them up. >> republicans lose florida by 0.7 of 1%. if republicans got the 5% they norm have gotten in the age of obama among african-american voters to the 12% or 13% that bush got in 2004 we win florida. you don't need to get the entire
group in order to have significant movement. >> good question here. >> what has happened to jeb bush? >> well, he has fallen out of the lead. >> we know that, but why? >> he's been out of the lead a long time. >> yeah. >> are you talking to him? >> since july. look. we have got a very complicated pattern of voting this year. . a guy is leading but a high floor and low ceiling in my opinion. donald trump has proven capable of getting 25% to 30% and does better in the polls where it's an internet poll which is interesting to me. your new polls today, for example, you show him significantly better number in new hampshire than does a poll that uses more traditional cell phones and land lines. so where this is -- we are giving these polls a scientific precision. i'm not certain they have had and certainly don't have today, given the changing nature of how we can be connected. but the fact of the matter is that he has shown himself the ability to get big glop of the
republican primary voters and can't accelerate above that and looks like if you're not a trump voter now, you're not necessarily a trump voter later. >> has jeb bush reached out to you? >> i'm not -- i'm not helping anybody formally but my attitude is i'm happy to talk to anybody who wants to pick up the phone and talk to a guy who has been through it a couple times and has old-fashioned news about it and that happens. >> i'm take that as a yes, karl. >> you still control millions of dollars with the super pac crossroads. will your super pac launch a guerrilla campaign to take on donald trump? >> american crossroads is involved with primaries and raised 103 million in the last presidential cycle but not involved this time around. >> do you anticipate another pac will launch? >> i read this morning in the papers there is one. i wouldn't be surprised. again, this is an atraditional election and i'm not sure the traditional things let's get a super pac and take somebody down
is nel -- >> a lot of the republican party is not committed. >> i think that is right. what is interesting how many people are committed in several different places. i know people who have given a check to rush, rubio, fiorina, kasich, you name it, christie or some combination thereof. >> thank you, karl. >> thank you, karl rove. >> congrats on the book. >> thank you. i brought you each a mckinley hank hankerchief. >> a widower's task to help a stranger.

zuckerberg will take two months paternity leave once his little daughter is born. he wrote in a facebook post that studies show when both parents take time off, the outcomes are better for the newborns and the parents too. facebook offers employees up to four months of paid maternity or paternity leave. zuckerberg is one ceo who wants to give his employees more time with their families. high-tech companies like spotify and amazon announced plans to give workers more time off but not all businesses are so transparent and no guarantees for paid leave. a new website called fairy god boss lets women anonymously post information with their workplace and that includes parental leave policies and experiences positive and negative. the site is called the yelp for maternity leaves. the two are making their
appearance here in studio 457. >> explain this website. >> it started when i was let go from my job in a management shake-up, norah. i couldn't find information that was really important to me, such as what is a company's maternity leave policy? i was two months pregnant at the time so you can imagine that was a pretty awkward thing to talk about and i hadn't told my friends much less was i comfortable sharing it with prospect employers. >> you're trying to find a new job and you can't find out what the maternity leave policy is with these on companies. why not ask? >> maternity leave is a finite amount of time and do they treat men and women equally and would i be negativity judged. we created a site to make sure women could get better information about prospective employers. >> how do you two know each other? >> we were colleagues at dow jones. >> why are we afraid to ask the question? that we will be judged? >> a stigma to go with it.
if you are interviewing and ask about maternity leave the signal you're sending is i'm about to go on maternity leave soon and that is a risky hire. >> what do you hope to achieve and what are comments being placed on the website? >> our mission is to improve the workplace for women and we do that by creating transparency when is two-way street. employers, specific actions they can take parental leave policies and cultural choice they make whether face time at the company. we hope when women share this information, employers listen and, you know, make some changes when necessary. >> and who are the best companies? >> well, we would rather say who the best industries are. we actually found a resulting and education and insurance rate the highest. and then -- >> but you review companies on your site? >> we do. >> there is quite a big range of results.
meaning we were surprised that some companies that may have been in the news negatively for one or two incidents and being, overall, rated quite positively. we think that women -- we have been very encouraged by how balanced the feedback has been. we thought this is a review site and may be an outlet for negativity but the women who are even unhappy are giving specific reasons as to why. >> if a company wants to move to the top of the class in terms of what is offers its employees, what should it do? >> women in leadership, it needs to give equal compensation and you look at sales force, for example, you know they are doing a full review to make sure -- >> what is he doing? >> he is doing a full audit to make sure men apple women are paid equally. >> i think they have spend $3 million to level out the playing field a bit. >> he has already done that? >> yes. equal compensation. things like on-site day care and things like -- >> flexible working is very important to some parents. >> are you concerned about the
accuracy? because suppose you get somebody who did not have a good experience with that maternity leave and could say something very snarky and others have a great review. >> we have a few checks in place. first of all, we personally review every review before it goes up to make sure it passes a smell test. and then, also, each reviewer needs to confirm an e-mail address. the site is anonymous but we make sure it's a real person. also in signing the terms and conditions, they are attesting what they are saying is accurate. >> very interesting thing about this, too, though, the disparity in maternity leave that exists within companies. how widespread is that and do you get the sense that younger women as applying to different jobs and having a choice are trying to choose companies whose benefits are better in this regard? >> we conducted a survey and we believe that 80% of women don't ask and they just sort of assume that the policies will be okay. and, of course, sometimes they
find out too late that it's not the case. at least a third are disappointed -- subsequently. >> very important question to once an i never once asked it during my career. i'm glad you guys are putting it out there. >> what is your maternity leave policy. yes. >> it sends a message i'm taking time off and no boss wants to hear that. >> we see changes on the paternal leave now as well. >> yeah. what about mark zuckerberg? >> we applied what he is doing and hope that sets a new standard for a ceo to be out on this. >> sends a message. thank you both. we are going behind the scenes of pixar animations, the studio that brought us "toy story." ahead how pioneers like s
