8:00 am
back to the exact same prison from which he escaped just six months ago, and will he face justice here in america? our live report from mexico city. officer ambushed. the gunman who took aim at a philadelphia cop is pledging allegiance now to isis. >> shots fired. 6-0 and spruce. i'm shot. i'm bleeding heavily. >> that weapon, a gun stolen from another officer. this morning the latest on the investigation and the suspect's trips to the middle east. on the attack. donald trump declaring himself all but unstoppable. >> killing everybody nationally. trump, 35, second 19 or 20 or something like that. >> what the new poll numbers are showing this morning, plus, it's handshake after handshake. will it pay off with the voters? and record jackpot. powerball fever at a boiling point. will it reach a billion dollars? the long lines across the nation. >> i drove three hours to get
8:01 am
>> what to do if you have the winning ticket? it's money on the mind this morning on "gma." hey, good morning. we are a nation in the grips of powerball fever. millions of us buying tickets, an act that really is a triumph of hope over math. >> here might be a tough pill to swallow, your reality of winning it. your chances of cashing in, 1 in 292.2 million, which is about the same as your odds at flipping a quarter and getting heads 28 times in a row. i believe you got 27 times in a row when you tried it. >> yes, that was when i was 8 years old. i had a lot of spare time. by the way, notwithstanding the bad math when paula and i heard sara was heading out to a convenience store in new york city, we gave her 40 bucks to buy us tickets. sara, how is it looking out there? >> thanks, first of all, for being debbie downers
8:02 am
haven't heard, there are a lot of zeros on the end of this powerball jackpot and i'm in one of the many stores across the country that will be selling these things faster than hotcakes, but you got to be in it to win it. check it out. it's the largest jackpot in history. $800 million, and it has people across the country lining up. here in prim, nevada, hundreds and hundreds standing in line for their shot at beating the odds. >> just play, man. you got to play. >> reporter: and at this georgia truck stop, poor souls from alabama, one of just six states that don't sell powerball, aspiring millionaires flock to pick up their tickets. >> i drove three hours to get here. >> reporter: according to the florida lottery, more than 16,000 tickets were being sold every minute friday afternoon, which equates to 271 every second or nearly 1 million tickets every hour. at a rate like that, it's no wonder some statisticians say the jackpot could grow to $1 billion.
8:03 am
>> reporter: there have been a record 19 drawings since the last powerball jackpot winner, so how did this happen? because, believe it or not, winning got harder. the month of october saw the number of white balls go up from 59 to 69. while the amount of red balls went down from 35 to 26. that changed the odds of winning the jackpot from 1 in 175 million to 1 in 292 million. if you bought 50 powerball tickets a week, you'll win the jackpot on average once every 112,000 years according to this statistics professor, who says it's still worth a shot. >> with a jackpot this high, it's the first time that even superficially the powerball bet is a good bet. so, i would say go out and buy a ticket. >> reporter: okay, you heard it from the professor. we've got to get in on this game.
8:04 am
worth of tickets because you're buying me some ice cream. pregnancy girl problems. hook me up with some winning tickets and no whammy, okay. i'm going to be back in a minute with some winning tickets. >> bring mine, okay. >> sara, you'd rather have ice cream than $900 million? >> because my chances of getting the ice cream are higher than you getting your millions of dollars. >> very good point. sara, bring us back -- >> thank you so much. >> bring us all back -- bring me a ticket, sara. >> dan. >> okay, guys, thank you. we're joined now from austin, texas, by the multistate lottery association chair and executive direct for the texas lottery commission, gary grief. gary, good morning to you. so here's the big question, do you think we have any chance of this jackpot hitting a billion dollars? >> gee, dan, you're hitting me with that pretty early this morning. i've just barely had coffee. i'm a little bleary-eye edd after watching all these sales
8:05 am
expectations. we'll make a decision on whether we want to increase that jackpot. how much we'll do that, though, dan, that's still to be determined. >> okay, so you won't commit to a billion. what about 900 million? >> i can't commit to anything until i see those number, dan. i can just tell you it's going to go up. our players are are responding like we have never seen before. i'm seeing lines at retail store, so everybody needs to buckle up their seat belt and see what happens at 11:00 today. >> somebody get gary an i.v. drip of caffeine and maybe he'll commit to a billion dollars at the end of this newscast. i don't want to press you hard. i know there's a lot of data coming in. if one of our viewers happens to win, what do you do once you realize you've got the winning ticket? >> sign the back of that ticket and put it in a safe place. you've got at least 180 days, no matter where you live in the country, to claim that prize. take your time, get some good
8:06 am

>> you couldn't make it up. matt gutman, we appreciate it. here at home, meanwhile, we have new video of the shooter who says he was inspired by isis ambushing a police officer on the streets of philadelphia. that officer somehow managing to get out of the vehicle and return fire. we're learning more now about this gunman, and abc's eva pilgrim is on the story from philadelphia. eva, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan. a chilling attack, a police officer ambushed driving down this very street this morning. we are waiting on authorities to formally announce charges against the man allegedly at the center of it all. police say that alleged gunman claims he's pledged his allegiance to the islamic state. surveillance video shows this terrifying attack. according to police, the man dressed in a white robe is 30-year-old edward archer seen here rushing towards a marked police cruiser firing a dozen rounds.

8:17 am
kansas city chiefs. you can watch it on both abc and espn, and joining us from the espn studios right now is nfl analyst, former player and coach herm edwards. good morning, coach. thanks for joining us. >> good morning. have nice conditions in houston, but not so much in minnesota. >> that's right. you know what, before we talk about today's texans/chiefs game, it's all about tomorrow. this game, seattle at minnesota. we've seen the freezer bowl. we've seen the ice bowl. the prediction right now for the weather, the windchill could make it feel like 20 degrees below or colder, coach. so, what's it going to be like for the players and how dangerous are those conditions? >> well, i don't know about dangerous so much is that who can withstand the elms. both of these teams are playing in a big game. you think about games of this nature, the first thing you're concerned with as a coach for the players is their feet and their hands, keeping those things warm and then the balls. the balls have to be warm for the kickers obviously and the quarterback, so you can't heat
8:18 am
along with the wind conditions. is it wet, and is it windy or is it just windy or just dry and cold? so these are the conditions you have to play in, especially in playoff atmosphere and it's outside, both teams. no one gets any edge on that. it's just mental toughness and obviously ball security. >> yeah, no one gets the advantage. we're going to have to start thinking of some names. we've seen the freezer bowl and the ice bowl but let's go back today. you once coached the chiefs playing the texans. who do you like in this game? >> i like the chiefs. i really like the roll they're on. i think both these teams are built the same way. they lost their running backs earlier but found a way chiefs being, what, with two wins, houston with two wins and then they find a way winning the division, the chiefs have won ten in a row now so i think the key is alex smith. he is actually the only quarterback in the playoffs with all the quarterbacks that has not turned the ball over. he's been in three playoff games. he's thrown nine touchdowns, zero interceptions. this defense of the chiefs takes the ball away, 119 points scored
8:19 am
i think the chiefs find a way to win this game. i think it's going to be a fabulous football game. both built the same way with good defenses and it's not going to be a high-scoring affair at all. >> enjoy the games from inside the warm studios, coach, particularly tomorrow's game. thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you. a reminder you can watch them starting at 4:20 in afternoon on both abc and espn and this is pretty big because it's our first nfl game in ten years. >> it's awesome, man. speaking of the weather, let's get it over to meteorologist indra petersons. good morning, indra. >> have you ever seen golf ball-size hail? how about like tennis ball-size hail. >> no thank you. >> literally it's no thank you. it's dangerous. that's when they saw outside houston. you know when the national weather service says take cover, it's going to be a whopper out there. downright dangerous. you're talking about hail coming through the windshields completely wiping them out and today that storm is still out there. the good news it has calmed down around the gulf but it's going to be ramping up again and making its way all the way into
