it was compelling counterpro counter-programming. it was also a big risk for donald trump. on stage, he said he didn't want to be at his own event, that he likes debates. but without him, the republican debate took on a decidedly different tone. think of me >> reporter: as fox put it, he was the elephant not in the room. trump boycotting the fox news debate. >> when you're treated badly, you have to stick up for your rights. and we have to stick up for our country when we're being mistreated. remember that. >> reporter: defying critics who called his move a mistake. inviteing two underdog candidates to speak. comparing his fundraiser to the academy awards. touting $6 million raised. across town, trump's absence gave opponents an opening to deliver their best one-liners.
this stage is stupid, fat and ugly. and, ben, you're a terrible surgeon surgeon. now that we've gotten the donald trump portion out of the way. >> donald trump was a teddy bear to me. >> reporter: the debate offered a glimpse into what the campaign may have looked like without the unpredictable front runner. ted cruz, number two on the polls, became number one target on the stage. >> you've been willing to say and do anything to get votes. >> everybody he knows is not as perfect as him. >> the last four questions have been, rand, attack ted. marco, attack ted. chris, attack ted. jeb, attack ted. gosh, if you ask one more mean question, i may have to leave the stage. >> reporter: after jeb bush announced he won't even be in iowa for caucus night. >> couldn't run because it wasn't popular.

willie and savannah? >> peter alexander, thank you. let's bring in chuck todd, moderator of "meet the press." good morning. >> good morning. >> normally at this time in the debate. night? did trump's big gamble pay off? >> you know, i think it did. the reason i think it paid off, because nobody on that debate of the moment. i was surprised at how little beef that trump got on that stage. that was an opportunity for a couple of the front runners to come out and go at trump. he wasn't there to respond. they chose not to do it. other than the stuff at the top, it was a light touch. if you're trump, you're sitting here going, well, this was great. ted cruz and marco rubio, the two guys chasing me, ended upbeating each other up, and were the targets of everybody else. one thing i noticed is without trump there, three people who trump has just obliterated over
ben carson, jeb bush and rand paul, all three of them had their best debate. >> chuck, people thought ted cruz specifically, because he's running close with trump in back. how did he handle the pressure last night? >> i think he struggled with it early, in particular. he was the one getting a lot of incoming. i think you could tell he liked sharing that with donald trump, without trump there. i thought he looked a little testy at times. his jokes fell a little flat. his little tweaking of the moderators didn't seem to go over well. look, i think he's still the guy that is the number two guy here, but he didn't do anything, i think, to go and grab trump. maybe even come out on top. if anything, rubio may be nipping at his heels a bit. this may be a closer three-way race than we thought. >> chuck todd, we'll be watching. you'll have more from iowa this sunday on "meezt the press,"
ted cruz. hillary clinton and bernie sanders are making their final pushes ahead of iowa's caucuses. andrea mitchell is also in des good morning. >> good morning, willie. the democratic side is also heating up. bernie sanders goes after hillary clinton for her fundraising and what he calls her ties to wall street. >> reporter: bernie sanders is on the attack. speaking to another roaring crowd in iowa thursday night. >> change is not easy, and the opposition will be strong. >> reporter: he's targeting wall street? a new ad. >> how does wall street get away with it? millions in campaign contributions and speaking fees. >> reporter: ads seen as an attack on hillary clinton. >> wall street spends huge amounts on campaign contributions. >> is she bought by wall street? >> i'm not suggesting anything. >> reporter: clinton is trying to close the deal, winning over a former trump supporter.
>> i cannot tell you what that means to me. >> reporter: connecting with one voter who is having trouble paying her bills. >> we have got to do more to help people. it's just not right. >> reporter: in iowa, one new poll shows she has a five point lead, with women and older voters throwing their support behind her. sanders is hoping young people and a growing organization will help him win on monday. >> we have 15,000 people in this state that have volunteered at least one shift a day. >> reporter: clinton's people say their ground game is secure. >> we've seen strong support across the state. >> reporter: at 74, sanders would be the oldest elected president if he wins. on thursday, he released a medical report, asserting he is in very good health. >> you know what i'm thinking to do? >> not with me. >> do i get involved in senior boxing, light heavyweight championship, or run for president? i decided to run for president.
shows is that hillary clinton has one advantage. her supporters tend to be more experienced caucus goers and more committed. bernie sanders has to hope that these first-time voters do show up at the polls. only three days to go. savannah and willie? >> senator sanders has to watch out if he's going to box you. >> she has the hands up. nice technique, andrea. >> thank you, willie. >> thanks so much. as we mentioned, we are monday. we will be live in des moines for the important caucuses. >> donald trump's newest ally, sarah palin, will be joining us during that special edition of "today." moving on to the ongoing occupation of a federal wildlife refuge in oregon. the fbi has just released video of this week's fatal shooting of the group's spokesperson. joe fryer son thisis on this story. good morning. >> good morning. the occupation is still not over. four people remain at the
