3:00 am
ay ahead before the first republican debate. bloomberg has trump with a 2 to 1 lead over jeb bush. 21% to 10% among republican voters. >> it does not stop >> it does not stop there. a new poll has trump doubling his support. he gets 26% of republican voters. jeb bush at 15%. the gop field waiting to see which ten republicans will qualify for the first debate. this as 14 gop candidates squared off last night. notably absent was donald trump. our coverage begins with athena jones. tell us everything. >> good morning, alisyn. we are just a few hours from learning who will be on that debate stage. from the top tier candidates last night was a chance to practice their talking points. it was a chance to make a case to voters albeit on a smaller
3:01 am
stage. >> please welcome the candidates. >> reporter: the first forum wasn't technically a debate but felt like a preview. on monday night, 14 presidential hopefuls for the republican ticket took the stage at the college in new hampshire. the candidates discussing their policies. some using their one-on-one time with the moderator to dole out punches against democratic front-runner hillary clinton. >> she lied about benghazi. she has, as well lied about her servers and the kinds of information she had on her server. these go to the core of her character. >> reporter: senator lindsey graham positioned himself as the best to take on the clintons. >> i have been dealing with clintons for 20 years. i'm fluent in clinton speech. when bill says i didn't have sex with that woman, he did. when she says i will tell you
3:02 am
about building the pipeline when i am president means she won't. when she tells us trust me you got all the e-mails you need, we haven't scratched the surface. i understand this crowd. can beat them. if we don't beat them, it doesn't matter. >> reporter: absent from the stage, the gop front-runner. he's surging above the rest in polls by bloomberg and monmouth ever university. he's leading the closest by double digits. the donald said he doesn't think you can artificially prepare for something like a debate. the unconventional debate prep from a candidate further fueling his performance in this thursday's debate. john kasich says he's not worried. >> neighbor i will give him a hug, i don't know. i don't think about all of that. itis not important. what's important to me is what i say. let people see, there's going to
3:03 am
be so much time between now and then. >> reporter: now, trump did not come up at all during last night's forum. they were focused on talking up their own views. a sign of those sharing the stage with him thursday night are going to do the best to keep their focus on them not the front-runner. >> donald trump says he clearly won the debate even though he wasn't there. planned parenthood will not be defunded. they kept the gop from a veto proof 60 votes. the fight is not over. some are using the "s" word, shutting down the government unless something is done about planned parenthood. what will that something be that is satisfying. joe johnson joins us now with more. do you have an answer to that one? >> not yet. not so far, chris. this was blocked on a vote of 53-46. well short of the 60 votes needed to move that measure
3:04 am
along. the issue of defunding planned parenthood is not likely to go away if critics of the organization have anything to say about it. two democrats sided with republicans on the measure, which would have taken away $500 million in funding. if first legislative fallout from the controversial videos. they put a spotlight on fetal tissue research. yes, it is likely to come up again in september, if there is another fight over shutting down the government. that's why it's not over yet. many republicans seeing it and hoping they can swing the issue in their favor. in the race for the white house, three republican candidates left the campaign trail in order to participate in the vote in d.c. back to you. >> all right, joe, thanks for all that background. joining us is cnn politics reporter jay and sar ra. great to have both of you with
3:05 am
us. jay, let's start with you. what do you think the headlines were? >> the 14 candidates on stage were thrilled donald trump was not there. that meant the headlines we saw were not dominated by what donald trump did or didn't say, which is unusual these days. i tuned in to see what the callers were saying. people were talking about george pataki and other candidates like chris christie. these candidates since trump got into the race he's sucked up the energy from the room. last night was an opportunity to get coverage and be able to tell the voters particularly in new hampshire, what they are about. >> this is a popularity contest. sarah, as much as we like to have fun about donald trump because of what he likes to provide, these new polls, you can't ignore them. he is clearly out in front. what is the best answer to why?
3:06 am
>> yeah i think the reality is when you look at the polls, we are not talking 10%, 12%, the polls have him with support from one in four voters. he's speaking to a wider set of the republican party than we thought. at first, we thought they were angry, disenfranchised voters. that's not the case. there is a broader dissatisfaction with washington. a broader dissatisfaction with politicians. what you will see is other candidates try to harness that not take on trump directly but try to talk about washington and how it needs to be fixed, how it is broken and how we need to change things and hope when trump does get out of the race f that happens, they can then pick up his supporters. >> sarah and mj let's look at the latest fox poll. this is asounding. he's at 26%. jeb bush 15%, then walker 9%
3:07 am
and down from there. this is an all time high for him. he has doubled his numbers over the past month or two. so mj to sarah's point, 26% aren't just angry people. that's bigger than angry people. they are enthusiastic people. >> i think sarah is right, we are not just talking 12%, 13%. when you have double digit leads over everyone else in a crowded field, you are the leader of the republican party right now. the question for donald trump going forward is can he bring up specific policy proposals that make his lead more than a temporary one month, two month fling. he has struggled. he was in an interview with dana bash. she pressed him on specific policy details, he couldn't go there on immigration and obamacare. when the voters look to him as the party of the leader is that sustainable. he's not saying here is a
3:08 am
detailed proposal of how to move the country forward. >> sometimes -- you are right. you are right, period. sometimes the voters will do it on a visceral level, not intellectual. they won't grade him as if he's on a test. he is getting a pass for the vetting of candidates because of the discontent and what's seen as freshness and candor. it's lifting him up. conversely hillary clinton is going the other way in the fox poll. what is your read on that? >> hillary clinton's numbers are interesting. the biggest issue for hillary are people who see her as not trustworthy. she's 51% up 22% against sanders. she has a wide lead. the problem for hillary clinton is voters don't trust her and don't think they can believe in her. that's the shift she's made from secretary of state to a candidate. people are looking at her now through the lens of a politician. they don't like what they see. for trump, it's easy to give
3:09 am
someone the benefit of the doubt. they need to believe you are capable of being president and feel comfortable with you as a person. voting for president is a very personal vote. as you pointed out, it's more than a policy proposal. how do you feel about this person. >> let's talk about what jumped out from the forum. it was an interesting set up arrangement. each candidate get on stage and hoisted themselves on to a stool, i found. they were asked questions for a few minutes. the next one out. three for a satellite from washington because they were voting on the planned parenthood bill. were there are stumbles? >> yeah people were calling it the gop political speed dating. they didn't get a lot of time on the stage, but it was an opportunity to talk about the policy issues they were interested in. jeb bush did not have a strong performance. he seemed nervous. people were talking about it on
3:10 am
social media. seemed nervous, uncomfortable. he was trying to tell a story of buying a t-shirt that said his dad was the greatest but his delivery was off. i am hoping this is his rehearsal and using last night to shake off the nerves and not have a repeat of that on thursday with a bigger audience more people are going to be watching. not to mention, the wild card donald trump is going to be on stage. >> the wild card. looking at last night sara who popped? >> i don't know that anyone did. people were into george pataki. i think people see more of carly feeiorina and like what they see. what we saw is not a good presur sor for thursday. this is candidates going around answering questions, not a lot of interaction with one another.
3:11 am
one we know about previous debates, that's what drives the headline when you see the candidates play off one another and get unscripted moments. that gives a window into what they would be like as president more than anything else. it's not planned. it's how are you reacting with this stress this stimulus in the moment. we are going to see more of that on thursday than what we saw last night. >> thanks for the analysis. coming up in the next hour we will talk about the fight over planned parenthood funding with the executive vice president, dawn. also in the 8:00 hour we will hear from david, the man behind the sting videos that fuelled the funding battle. stick around for all of that. michaela? darren wilson is breaking his silence. the former missouri police officer who shot and killed michael brown says he's not haunted by his actions and was just doing his job.
3:12 am
brown's family say that proves he's racist. boris sanchez has more with the article. >> repeatedly in the piece, darren wilson is trying to move away from what happened in ferguson. he literally has moved away to a new home. he has new daughter born in march. his name isn't on the deed to the property where he lives. even though he's trying to stay out of the spotlight, the comments coming close to the eve of michael brown's death are stirring controversy. darren wilson speaking out almost a year after shooting and killing unarmed 18-year-old michael brown. a new photo of the former ferguson police officer accompanying an over 20-page in-depth interview in a magazine. the reporter says the now 29-year-old lives in an undisclosed new home. >> i want a normal life.
3:13 am
>> reporter: far from his wish in an interview, wilson says he will only go to places where there are like minded individuals and it's not a mixing pot. and about the death that sparked national outrage -- wilson says he doesn't think of michael brown as a person because, quote, it doesn't matter at this point. when asked if he thought brown was a bad guy, wilson said i only knew him for those 45 seconds in which he was trying to kill me, so i don't know. brown's family is not surprised. >> so many inconsistencies in the article. it perpetuates the view of wilson being self-serving. >> wilson has not read the justice department's report on the racism in ferguson. the former cop says he's not going to keep living in the past. wilson says if you live in a high crime area with a lot of poverty, there's going to be a large police presence.
3:14 am
he claims it's not a race issue. he goes on to say, in ferguson there's a lack of initiative to get a job. the youth are running in the streets, he says not worry about working in the morning. the 29-year-old claim that is culture is everywhere in the inner cities. >> darren wilson is no racist. i know him well. i think the article misrepresent who is he is. >> wilson said he's interviewed in other police departments but has not been hired because he is a liability. he wants to go back to the ferguson police officer department to prove he isn't defeated. >> interesting. >> a lot of security risks reaching out to other departments for jobs. it's certainly been an impact on his life. boris, thank you very much. an investigation under way into what caused a circus tent to collapse. two people lost their lives,
3:15 am
dozens injured. this happened during a walker brothers circus show. at least 100 people inside. severe weather hit. that's when everything bad started to happen. remember it's not the only part of the country getting hammered. let's bring in cnn meteorologist chad myers. what are you seeing? >> the stuff across the northeast is headed offshore. backing off to 5:45 last night, a severe thunderstorm warning in effect when a tent was blown down. tampa, almost five inches of rain. tarpon springs, 17 inches of rain the past week. a very wet couple days in florida. boston new york d.c. you have already had storms but more later on this afternoon. we'll fire the storms up in d.c. new york philadelphia around 4:00 5:00 tonight. if you are flying expect delays for the late flights. everything else looks good. if you are complaining about the heat please don't.

out rage this morning after a kentucky sheriff's deputy is caught on tape handcuffing an 8-year-old boy for misbehaving. the boy has adhd. now the aclu is suing on behalf of the boy and a 9-year-old girl who was restrained by the same officer. martin savidge is live with more in atlanta. good morning. >> good morning, alisyn. you have to think there had to be a better way of handling this. the video you are about to see occurred in november of 2014. it's come to light now because of a lawsuit filed on monday by the aclu. take a look. >> you need to behave or suffer the consequences. it's your decision to behave this way. >> reporter: this controersial video is difficult to watch.
3:22 am
the sheriff's deputy facing a federal lawsuit by the aclu restrains the third grade boy with handcuffs. the boys hands pulled with excessive force behind his back. he can be heard crying out in pain. the small, 8-year-old child who, according to the lawsuit suffers from disabilities from adhd and history of trauma. he's cuffed at the biceps. his wrists are too small for the adult constraints. >> it hurts. >> sit down in the chair like i have asked you to. >> reporter: that officer works at the elementary identified. the sheriff of kenton county alleging his failure to adequately train and supervise him. >> if you want the handcuffs off, you have to ask nicely.
3:23 am
if you are behaving i will take them off. if you are acting up you are not going to get them up. >> reporter: the complaint was submitted on behalf of the boy. and a 9-year-old girl was handcuffed in the same manner by the same officer on two occasions causing pain and trauma. >> there was no legitimate law enforcement purpose there. neither child committed a crime. all of their behavior was due to their specific disabilities. >> look at me. if you want the handcuffs off, you have to stop. do you want them off or not? >> cnn reached out to the school district and the sheriff's office. we have not had any response. in a statement given as part of the investigative report the
3:24 am
deputies actions were explained the child refused directives from the teacher of vice principal and tried to swing with his elbows against the officer. again, to watch that really really tough to see. chris? >> tough to watch, but you have to listen to what he's saying also. it's going to go to the justification of the action. let's go to cnn law enforcement analyst and cnn political commentator. i am not reference what is the sheriff said because i like to see kids get hurt. i'm not referencing it because i'm just a journalist. it is relevant to an analysis of this situation. this is not a random cop who got called to the scene where teachers couldn't control the kid. he works in the school. let's start with what the rules are. are you ever allows legally, to restrain a kid like this? >> depends on how the kid is acting. we don't stee kids actions
3:25 am
before he's restrained. the teachers felt the need to call the officers to come to where they were when this was occurring. even then the teachers didn't know how to handle the kid. you have two things tough worry about him harming another child or himself. >> imminent threat to himself or others. >> the whole thing is we don't know how that kid was acting. these are always lose/lose situations for police officers. >> he says he threw an elbow at the sheriff, missed and then he cuffed him. what do you see as the other side of this? >> the child's behavior was appropriate based on his age and condition. the standard procedure based on every specialist every care specialist every psychologist is not to handcuff the children. it's a new pattern we have seen over the last 20 years. unless this kid turned and grew
3:26 am
80 pounds and was able to dominate the sheriff or other children i don't see any reason to do this. >> sometimes you have to restrain a child because they are going off. >> the sheriff says this is allowed, it's legal. the school itself says it is not our policy. which wins? how do you negotiate the two? >> i think the school should have some kind of special restraints there for children like this. they are supposed to be trained on how to teach the children and respond to them. >> are they trained to use holds, not restraints? >> you can use holds. you are worried about hurting the kid also. i would rather handcuff a child than restrain them a certain way. i'm going like this and the kid is going crazy. >> no police officer wants to put a kid like that. i have never seen that before. >> that's part of the problem. you said you know, this wasn't
3:27 am
a police officer brought in. he works there. the problem is he works there. 30 years ago, school discipline faculty experts handled school discipline. when you went to school -- >> it was called corporal punishment. they used to be able to hit you. >> that is not true. >> it is absolutely true. >> in 1985 you were not allowed to beat kids in school. >> i was being generous by 30. >> continue. >> when you were in school and got in trouble, you were sent to the office and the school handles it. now, law enforcement handles it. we criminalize bad behavior. >> this wasn't a criminal issue. >> i hear you. let's just deal with apples not oranges here. if this were little sr and little lr they should protect them. if they get into it and the cop
3:28 am
is called to school and he cuffs them like two guys on the subway. we get that. these are kids that don't have the tools to do what the kid is supposed to do in that situation. we are trained with different things. >> that's the point. >> what happens when the line is crossed and the resource officer is called by the school to deal with the situation? you now have a kid who, let's say she did let's take the officer at his word did go after another student, was not listening to him. what's he supposed to do? >> use the restraints. >> no you said never use restraints. >> physical restraints, not handcuffs. >> what happens when we see a video of him manhandling a child? now what situation is he in? >> they have psychological problems. you can't talk to them like
3:29 am
normal children. >> they have developmental issues. they have a special set of rules. sometimes they age out, sometimes they don't. this kid is crying the cuffs around his biceps. the sheriff says you can't fit them around his wrists. >> because he's a kid and the school says don't use them. do you think he screwed up having the cuffs where we did? >> i don't like it. i don't know the situation. if that officer thought it was the best way to restrain the child at that time for his own safety and the safety of others go for it. like i said there's no way you are going to win as a police officer in a situation like this. you have a video that looks bad. he has no special tools. he's got to go in and calm down the situation. >> where are the teachers. >> we outsourced discipline to law enforcement.
3:30 am
>> i think handcuffing a kid in a chair makes people angry. discipline means to teach kids to follow a rule. >> that's what he said to him. if you stop doing this i'll do that. it's textbook school discipline. >> where was the teacher? >> how do you control a child going crazy? it's hard to do. >> we don't know if he's going crazy. this means you do this and we are going to establish a punishment until you stop doing it. that's what's happening here. he's trying to condition the child. >> he is responding to a situation. nothing to do with conditioning. he wants to stop from happening what was going on. >> you are saying what i just said. >> that's why conditioning sounds more than that. >> you are conditioning the child not to do a behavior. >> you are an expert in the field. >> yes.
3:31 am
>> if you are an expert in the field, let's accept the premise, what's happening here is the officer is trying to condition a response. he's trying to get him to calm down he's not taking the normal directive. i'm saying it's not a normal situation where mark and marry are going at it. this is a kid who is not responding. >> adhd. >> right. why is this the level of recourse? why isn't there a teacher there using all the methods you are referring to before you ask the sheriff? >> i'm speaking as a school expert not clinician. you are making it far more extraordinary than it is. a lot of kids have adhd. half this room has adhd and we manage to get through the day without getting handcuffed. we have been sort of -- >> this is a situation. i mean -- i don't know about
3:32 am
that. this happens every day. adhd. we do not know how he was acting before that. >> we are going to pick this up in the next hoyer. >> handcuffs are way too far. >> if he used rope it's the same thing. >> we brought in people who were specialists on this under rare circumstances. >> we are going to keep discussing this. the video is a no brainer. it looks so terrible you want something different to happen. the question is what's available and when. #newdaycnn. we'll keep talking about this. >> all right, chris. the latest poll shows donald trump pulling away from the rest of the republican field. with the first big debate imnant just two days away can he maintain his lead? what is his path to victory?

the reality for the gop is donald trump. he is surging in every one of their party's polls. that doesn't stop a lot of observers from saying he will be out soon. he won't clinch the nomination. how long does he have to be on top before people talk about the path for him. let's bring in ron brownstein. how are you? good to see you this morning. let's take a look at the numbers we have here okay? we have donald trump, okay? there's the number. i think this may be one of the few times, you can bring up ross perot, if you like where a man has that kind of bar on a graph and is that dismissed. how do you explain that? >> people have a question of whether he has brought enough support to go the distance. there's no question the surge is
3:44 am
real he's tapped into the republican party. you never want to say never. i still think mostage cysts believe trump face challenges. one is whether he can broaden support. it's one thing to get to 26% or 30%. it's another to get to 40 45 or 50%, which you need to do to be the nominee. the second point wharks is working for trump to deepen his support, but still relatively narrow slice, ultimately threatens the ability across the party. he's the i.t. of the republican party, saying what others won't say, that endures him and strengthens the appeal. it also raises doubts among others about being plausible about being the nominee. >> if he wants to be a real contender, he may have to strike a different tone thursday. >> my pushback would be this.
3:45 am
he is a real contender. this is his bar here. >> yes. >> look what happens when you take him out of the race. now you see the numbers they want. here is the problem, they don't like these people in the gop right now. none of them are getting ahead except trump because he is the face of their discontent. that can go a very long way in politics. the idea he'll get scared out bay debate what is this estimate of what a debate is? it's a one liner contest. nobody wins by setting out the best policy. >> you are right. look at the last several cycles. roughly in half between a establishment, a managerial wing white collar more moderate and urbanized. the other half is a more turbulent, populous wing overlapping tea party, blue collar lots of voters who feel
3:46 am
disaffected from the direction of the party. with that half of the party, donald trump struck a clear nerve. look at the abc/washington post one. when you look at the other half of the party, he was at 8%. >> ron, i have that number. >> ultimately he has to broaden, if he is going to contest with the nomination. >> i'm with you. i'm going to keep pushing back. it's not just about puffing up trump. he doesn't need that. there is a genuineness to the discontent. there is a rejection of the normative in a way that he is harnessing as being ignored. here is what you were saying about education. high school educated. college grads. much less shameless plug. ron had a small piece about what president obama just did with clean power. it plays to the voters democrats are going for, white collar

right direction. i think the key question really is for him, if you want to be a voice of protest, that's one thing. if you want to be a serious contender, eventually tough get up to 40%, 45% of the state that is matter next february and march. to do that you have to convince a broader circle than he's talking to that he is credible as a president or nominee. >> hard to argue with the intelligence of ron brownstein. that's why we have him on the show. the people that said they would never vote for him was 59%, now 33%. thanks ron. >> thanks chris. >> good way to break it down thanks chris. two americans accused of illegally hunting lions in zimbabwe. what can be done to stop poaching an illegal hunt? we'll discuss it next. you are adorable.
3:49 am
thank you. ladies your belts all snugged up? why do we have to buckle up? the pick up stinks with diesel. [ding] you've got to be kidding! oh please! ah! this is the end! oh my god! [brakes screech] we need resuscitation. mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. hurry up! [laughing] i'm caridee. i've had moderate to severe plaque psoriasis most of my life.
3:50 am
but that hasn't stopped me from modeling. my doctor told me about stelara® it helps keep my skin clearer. with only 4 doses a year after 2 starter doses... ...stelara® helps me be in season. stelara® may lower your ability to fight infections and increase your risk of infections. some serious infections require hospitalization. before starting stelara® your doctor should test for tuberculosis. stelara® may increase your risk of cancer. always tell your doctor if you have any sign of infection have had cancer, or if you develop any new skin growths. do not take stelara® if you are allergic to stelara® or any of its ingredients. alert your doctor of new or worsening problems including headaches, seizures, confusion and vision problems. these may be signs of a rare potentially fatal brain condition. serious allergic reactions can occur. tell your doctor if you or anyone in your house needs or has recently received a vaccine. in a medical study most stelara® patients saw at least 75% clearer skin and the majority were rated as cleared or minimal at 12 weeks. stelara® helps keep my skin clearer. ask your doctor about stelara®.

3:53 am
there is growing global backlash this morning in the wake of the illegal killing of a prized lion in zimbabwe by an american dentist. american airlines and delta banning the shipment of big animals as trophies. can poaching be stopped? joining us is dave. good to have you back on the program. sorry we have had to talk about this again. there is word there is another american this time a doctor accused of hunting in zimbabwe and it occurred months before cecil was killed. what was your reaction dave? >> ice not one of surprise. i feel like this is something that's been going on for years and years. the trophy business is a big business. so people like myself we have been aware of this and trying to fight against this for years.
3:54 am
but, the fact they have decided to backtrack for a month and choose this guy, i don't know what happened. >> what kind of safeguards are in place to prevent illegal poaching or this kind of illegal hunt? >> yeah in most of these national parks t protected areas, you start with a fence. you build a fence, then patrol the fence. most parks have their teams. they will be out for 24 hours looking for signs of poaching from you know, subsistence poaching a guy trying to feed his family toup the poaching the trophy guys use. there's been a lot of backlash about the stories, the cases. there's also been big trophy hunters speaking up says look this is what we love to do. it is a sport to us. some of them argue they do more for conversation vacation than
3:55 am
conservationists do. i know you have opinions on that. others say it's not about the killing of the animal it's about the hunt. >> yeah i feel like they certainly don't have moral or ethical grounds to stand on. the fact you can spit out your mouth, i get a thrill from killing something, i don't understand. the fact they hide behind the shield of conservation. they feel all their money they spend goes to helping animals. the fact is, it doesn't. absolutely they pay a lot of money for permits and it goes to a governing body somewhere. the dollars do not hit the ground in conservation. >> they don't trickle down that way. >> they are trying to sleep well at nighttime. >> a lot of people are struggling with how to make the change. we have seen something change. both american airlines and delta will not transport animal that is have been hunted in this fashion. do you think that's a step in
3:56 am
the right direction, dave? >> there's a lot of steps in the right direction. this is a great positive coming out of such a tragedy. we had the same question. we started up our website animalsarenottrophies.com. go there and see what you are passionate about. you can donate money, time or voice. globally people are starting to do that. they are realizing this trophy hunting is despicable. >> we know in cecil's death, his brother, jericho, part of the alpha males protecting the pride. does that mean the cubs will be protected? >> they will be protected as best as jericho can. he is part of a coalition formed with cecil. the loss of cecil makes things more difficult.
3:57 am
there are sometimes individual male that is try to take over or other coalitions of two, three, four or more. if an individual male comes he might have a great chance of protecting his pride. now, as chances carry on time goes on he's going to come across a coalition and be outmatched. the hope is he's able to protect the cubs long enough for them to get big enough that they are not nursing anymore. >> thanks for joining us. animal planet is going to air a marathon for world lion day. you can go to animalsarenottrophies.com. a lot of news to get to. let's start it off. 14 presidential hopefuls took to the stage. >> a fight for the character of this nation. >> a clench fist and open hand. >> the elephant in the room was the one who didn't attend. >> donald trump. >> i'm not a debater.
3:58 am
i don't stand-up and debate like these politicians. >> enough is enough. >> planned parenthood will not be defunded. >> if this feels like a full on assault on women's health that's because it is. >> the outbreak of the disease. who will get worse before it gets better? >> an increase in cases. >> controversial video. >> it hurts. >> there was no legitimate law enforcement purpose. noups announcer: this is "new day" with chris cuomo, alisyn camerota and michaela pereira. >> days before the presidential debate donald trump cementing his status as the gop front-runner. bloomberg has trump with a 2-1 advantage over bush. >> a fox poll has him at 26%, a personal best for him.
3:59 am
just about doubled his support in two months. the polls made him a leader and spoiler. his popularity will squeeze out a bunch of the gop field. let's begin our coverage. we have cnns athena jones live in manchester. athena the latest? >> reporter: good morning, chris. that's right, we are hours away from learning who is going to be on that debate stage on thursday night. for the top tiered candidates, last night was a chance to practice their debate talking points. for the dands who won't make the cut, it's a chance to connect where voters on a much much smaller stage. >> please welcome the candidates. >> the first gop forum wasn't technically a debate but felt like a preview. on monday night, 14 presidential hopefuls for the republican ticket took the stage at the college in new hampshire. >> i pledge allegiance to the
4:00 am
flag -- >> reporter: the candidates discussing their policies some using their one-on-one time with the moderator to dole out punches against hillary clinton. >> she lied about benghazi. she has, as well lied about her servers and the kinds of information she had on her server. these go to the core of her character. >> reporter: senator lindsey graham used his time on stage as the best candidate to take on hillary clinton. >> i have been dealing with them 20 years. i am fluent in clinton speech. when bill says i didn't have sex with that woman, he did. when she says i'll tell you about bidding the pipeline when i get to be president means she won't. when she tells us trust me you have all the e-mails you need we haven't even scratched the surface. i understand this crowd. i can beat them. if we don't beat them it doesn't matter. sblg absent is the gop
4:01 am
front-runner. they are surging above the rest in three polls put out. in fact he's leading the next closest candidate, jeb bush by double digits. on sunday the donald told nbc news he doesn't think you can artificially prepare for a debate. the unconventional debate prep from. fellow candidate, john kasich says he's not worried. >> maybe i'll give him a hug, i don't know. i don't think about all of that. it's not important. what's important for me is what i say and let people see, there's going to be so much time between now and then. >> reporter: now, trump did not come up at all during last night's forum. the candidates were focused on talking up their own views and policy positions. it's a sign those sharing the stage with trump thursday night are going to try their best to
4:02 am
keep the focus on them not the front-runner. chris? >> another big issue is planned parenthood. 53 gop senators passed a bill to defund it. you need 60 votes. they lost for now. we do have gopers that were threatening a bill that would shut down the government. if it includes one cent for planned parenthood. let's get the latest from cnn washington correspondent, joe johns. i thought this was going to start with an investigation. >> there are people calling for it. it was a vote of 63 to 46. that issue of defunding planned parenthood is not likely to go away. critics of the organization have anything to say about it. two democratic senators sided with republicans on the vehicle
4:03 am
code. it would have taken away $500 million of funding in planned parenthood. the reaction to the controversial videos from antiapportion groups that put the spotlight on fetal tissue. it's likely to come back. now, especially because many on the right see an opening and believe the issue could swing the abortion rate. several republican candidates who are members of the senate left the campaign trail to vote on the senate trail including marco rubio, ted cruz rand paul. they have been scheduled to attend the voters forum athena jones was talking about. they participated by way of satellite tv. two other senate republicans collins of maine and kirk of illinois are calling for the department to approve it.
4:04 am
>> i'll take it here. thank you for that background. joining us now is dawn the executive vice president at planned parenthood planned federation. thank you for being back on "new day." >> morning. >> you won last night. you won the latest round. joe johns said gopers say the battle is not over for them. do you feel the tide is turning against planned parenthood? >> absolutely not. i'm thrilled today, 2.5 million americans can continue to get their important, excellent, preventive health care at planned parenthood. thankful for the champions. >> what we are seeing is very little about women's health care or fetal tissue research. >> what they would say is it has to do with abortion. you are right, it's not about women's health care. they do talk about abortion.
4:05 am
it was these videos these controversial video that is sparked this latest round on capitol hill. i know you believe the videos are deceptively edited. on the group's website, they have put them in their entirety unedited on their website. they released transcripts they say are the full entirety of the transactions. >> that's actually not a fact. since we know that for years this has been a strategy to deceptively edit in inflammatory ways these kind of videos put them out and claim they have put out the full tape. we can tell they are still edits taped. if you go back to the facts about the vote and the, quote, defunding" of planned parenthood it hauz nothing to do with abortion as it is not paid for with federal funds. what we were talking about is cutting funds for birth control,
4:06 am
std testing, teen pregnancy prevention cancer screenings. this is how you know it has nothing to do with abortion in terms of the votes they were taking. >> dawn, you know the argument on the other side. what republicans say, who don't want to fund planned parenthood. funds are fungible. if you give a half billion dollars to planned parenthood they can do whatever they want with it. i want to get back to the videos. it does appear from the snippets as though something unscrupulous is happening. i's very short, a six-second clip that captures the essence of what people believe the videos represent. listen to one of your medical directors. >> in a way that you know seems reasonable. >> that's where they are talking
4:07 am
about the sale or the compensation for fetal tissue. if they can do a little better than break even and if it seems reasonable they are happy to do that. how do you explain? >> we don't know exactly what she was responding to. that's the thing about the videos. they move around tape one in front of the other. you are not clear if she's talking about fetal tissue that's one thing. the second thing, as we discussed, they cut out nine or ten times where she says this is not about profit. this is a small program where women can choose to make this donation and it is only allowable and only planned parenthood's policy to be able to be reimbursed at cost. >> yes. >> period. >> when we read the transcript they say that over and over again, we are trying to recoop our costs. you are right about that. however, above and beyond that transaction, what's gotten the
4:08 am
public's attention is the sort of attitude with which some of these transactions are conducted. even hillary clinton. i mean people in the democratic party have called these videos disturbing. as a result of the videos, is there any soul searching going on? not about the mission statement but perhaps about the method or the means of talking about it. >> well we reiterated that our commitment to compassion and sensitivity, we expect that from everyone. we are doubling our commitment to that in all ways. our care is excellent. as you saw, polls came out last night that showed planned parenthood's favoribility even after all this and all the deceptiveness and the conversation in the republican primary about this. more favorable than any political candidate.
4:09 am
more favorable than the president. more favorable than the national rifle association. top of the list planned parenthood. that's because real americans come to planned parenthood for care. outside of the beltway, they know what planned parenthood is they know the compassion of our doctors and staff. and they know that a lot of political games are not intended to help them they are to score political points. >> so in other words, nothing will change within planned parenthood as a result of the videos and people feeling as though they are disturbing? >> i think i said planned parenthood takes seriously our commitment to do all things with compassion and sensitivity and if anybody in our organization doesn't feel like they are doing that or we are not doing that for the people we serve, we take a look at that and we make lots of changes, all the time to improve. >> okay.
4:10 am
>> what we are seeing here are attacks on people's ability to get health care. we are seeing attacks intended in the end analysis to get rid of safe legal abortion in this country and destroy planned parenthood that stands up for the health rights and freedom of women and people in this country. >> thanks so much for being on "new day" and explaining all this to us. we appreciate seeing you. >> thanks, alisyn. next hour we will hear from the base of the antiabortion group and video that is ignited this debate? >> want to show you a situation happening in india. at least 178 people have been killed by raging waters that affected some 10 million people across india. not the only place hit. flooding hit china hard washing away the road it collapsed straight down. the flooding killed 47 people in myanmar and 23 people in
4:11 am
vietnam. >> look at those pictures. funny woman, amy schumer is going to bat for a new gun control bill. she's joining her cousin senator schumer. did you know they were related? calling on stronger background checks. schumer said she joined the fight after a gunman killed two people in a movie theater showing her new movie. >> my heart goes out to jillian and mayci and everyone tied to this tragic senseless actions of a man who shouldn't have been able to put his hands on a gun in the first place. i'm not sure why he chose my movie to end these two beautiful lives and injure nine others but it was very personal to me. >> she received a letter on a sandy hook family. a tweet saying don't worry, i'm on it. >> there's out rage after a
4:12 am
deputy is caught on tape handcuffing an 8-year-old boy above the elbows for misbehaving in class. the boy has adhd. the aclu and a children's advocacy group are suing on behalf of that boy and a 9-year-old girl also restrained by the same officer. martin savidge is live. tell us more. >> the lawsuit occurred in november of 2014. the lawsuit was filed on monday. it alleged the children were traumatized as a result of being punished for behavior they couldn't control. take a look. >> are you going to behave like you are supposed to or suffer the consequences. it's your decision to behave this way. >> reporter: this video is difficult to watch. the sheriff's deputy now facing a federal lawsuit by the aclu restrains the third grade boy with handcuffs. according to the complaint, his
4:13 am
arms pulled with excessive force behind his back. he can be heard crying out in pain. >> no! >> the small 8-year-old child suffers from disabilities related to adhd and the history of trauma. the 15-minute video shows him cuffed at the biceps. his wrists are too small for the con strants. >> it hurts! >> sit down in the chair like i asked you to. >> that officer identified as deputy kevin sumner. also named the sheriff of kenton county alleging the failure to train him. >> if you want the handcuffs off, tough ask nicely. if you behave i will take them off. as long as you are acting up you are not going to get them
4:14 am
off. >> reporter: the complaint was submitted on behalf of the young boy. a 9-year-old girl was also handcuffed in the same manner by sufficient ser sumner causeing pain. neither child that committed a crime was really good to their specific disabilities. >> look at me. if you want the handcuffs off you have to stop kicking. do you want them off or not? >> we reached out to the sheriff's office. they had no comment on this case. at this time we reached out to the school district. so far, we have not heard back from anyone. in the lawsuit, there is a statement that tries to explain the officer's actions saying the child refused.
4:15 am
it came from the principal and teachers. the child took a swing at him with his elbows. >> hard to watch. the little boy wailing. >> it's an 8-year-old child, an 8-year-old. >> the school policy is not to have constraints. the officer said he had to use them. it's a no end situation for the officer. the message it shouts is you have to do better than this. this is a regular school. these kind of kids make up 12% of the population. there's 75% of the kids that get restraints. >> you had a debate about this last hour and another one coming up. what is the procedure? >> there's white, black and a lot of gray area. >> this school doesn't allow it. what does that mean? there are better ways to do it. >> they failed here. what is the fallout for the officer?

4:20 am
this way. >>itis exactly what it looks like an 8-year-old handcuffed above the elbows. he has adhd. that officer handcuffed a kid and he handcuffed another little girl twice before. both of them had adhd. the sheriff says it key question is why he had to do it. is it legal? is it appropriate and when? >> danny and paul are with us. paul is what the sheriff did legal under these circumstances? >> well we are going to have to see what happens in federal court. >> don't hedge. >> the law says it amount of force applied has to be commensurate with the threat. if the child is a dang tore himself, going to go into the road and hurt himself, yes, you can restrain him. were those constraints proper?
4:21 am
they had to handcuff him at the elbows. they need something better to deal with elementary school kids. >> the school says we do not allow handcuffs. we have learned to do it a better way, especially with these kids. we have behaviors and techniques and holds. what do you say? >> for the most part kentucky is at a very permissive legal framework when it comes to constraint and/or conclusion. up to this point, no governing rule on restraint on school children while there was plenty in children involving hospitals and juvenile places. i will make a bet -- this is a strong case for liability. these cases, while they are very difficult to win turn on the distinction between, was this restraint for discipline and punishment or was it related to
4:22 am
safety? and, my exhibit a would be that video where you hear the officer's voice saying are you going to behave? are you going to stop misbehaving or whatever he is saying. that is my exhibit a that this is not to protect anyone or safety. no one was concerned about the elbow that is were in a statement n. reality, this is about discipline. this was about misbehavior and it appears, while again, cases against schools are difficult to win. this potentially, could meet that bar, under what we call section 1983 claim or a due process clause 14th amendment. >> paul isn't it in part true at least, one of the reasons we have this situation with a resource officer is really just a sheriff because the schools are trying to shift liability away from themselves because of lawsuits? >> we are turning everything in this country into a federal lawsuit. i'm thinking back to when i was
4:23 am
in school when you were in school when corporal punishment was used. we have gone beyond that now. we try to be very, very careful about when we use it. second guessing every situation where a child has to be restrained should it lead to a lawsuit? i don't know. you have to look at the specific facts. i hate to disagree with danny because he may be right that the force here was not appropriate. but there are two things tough prove in a lawsuit. you have to prove long term injury or damages and what this child permanently injured? i can remember punishments administered to me and i seemed to survive them. sthak's not the bar. the bar is can we do better? what i think is missing in the situation, danny, i'll direct it to you thrks is about failure down the line. these kids adhd whatever group you want to put them in are
4:24 am
10%-12% of the population of the kids. they are 75% of the cases where this is done. that makes a question about the system. long term damage to the kid is one factor. where was the teacher? where was the training? where is the dedication to dealing with kids who need special help? >> i'm going to add to what you said, chris. i found in 2009 in kentucky out of about 900 of these restraints or seclusion, only 20 were children without disabilities. take your number and inflate it more for the commonwealth of kentucky. to play devil's advocate at the same time a lot of teachers are articulating safety concerns. i think, as someone said a few minutes ago, there is gray area. when talking distinction between safety and mere misbehavior, it is easy to say this moment
4:25 am
required this amount of force. at the moment at that time believe me the teachers faced liability, if the child hurts another child. it's one of those darned if you do darned if you don't and teachers are left making split second decisions. then we have federal lawsuits. >> a situation that we don't know it applies. he was held in restraints 15 minutes, a cop, not a teacher. >> what we know about the cop -- >> more restraint than the teacher. >> the cop is a former teacher. he was trained. >> not to handcuff a kid above the elbow. >> we get back to the equipment. you have to have the proper equipment and train people available. obviously the training and equipment was inadequate. >> thank you very much. when you are analyzing this situation, imagine if it were your kid, then see what you think about the situation.

4:30 am
welcome back. intriguing new polls today. let's get to inside politics on "new day" with john king. good morning john. >> good morning. thursday is debate day, today is cut off day. fox news will decide who gets into the first republican debate the prime time debate. let's go to inside politics. a forum last night. let's show the pictures to begin with. most of the republican presidential candidates were there. the virginia governor was not and the three senators were not, rubio, cruz and paul because they had to stay back to vote.
4:31 am
they lined up on the stage, then took questions. the one thing we learned is when you have so many people it's hard to get a lot of time to distinguish yourself. let's listen to the flavor. jeb bush scott walker chris christie trying to convince people. >> my dad is the most perfect man alive. it's hard to be critical of him. in fact i have a t-shirt that says the jeb swag store that says i'm the -- i'm -- my dad is the greatest guy alive. if you don't like it take it outside. >> outside of washington with a proven track record. >> some people say that your best time to run may have come and gone. >> are you saying i'm washed up? >> no. >> no one should run for president of the united states to look in the mirror and say i am ready. when folks approached me i looked in the mirror and said i'm not ready. >> they appeared one at a time.
4:32 am
because there was so many, time was short. did we learn anything? one, i thisty premium is you have so little time. >> you have to work on the clever line about your dad and the t-shirt. walker has to be more lively. i think he has a mid western laid back appeal on tv that's hard to sort of make out. so i think they have work to do. they have to work on their lines and kick off the rust. >> it was a parade of talking points. new hampshire voters didn't learn anything about the candidates there. they are not going to learn more more on thursday. in iowa and new hampshire, the places where the voters dug down on the character and the issues involved it's about the polls and the national debates. it's nationalizing a deep campaign. >> it's the reason the event was held.
4:33 am
some of the forces in new hampshire saying wait we don't want the national party running the debates. we'll see the impact going forward. let's listen to again, as we look to the debate trump will be center stage. will people try to attack him, stay away from him, make their own points? one of the issues in politics is immigration. listen to this exchange of differences of opinion at last night's forum. >> those that overstayed their visas, find them pick them up. >> if they are law-abiding, god fearing folks they have to pay a penalty toward legalization. they will have to be deported or put in prison. >> this is where the candidates have some disagreement. we talked about this last week. trump said round them up throw them out and let them in on an expe indicted basis. that doesn't make much sense.
4:34 am
mass deportations we took the time effort and money to do that now because you didn't commit a crime, you get the front of the line. is this going to be a flash point? >> it will be. one of the ways you distinguish the candidates is in terms of rhetoric. trump has been out front talking about mexican illegal immigrants as rapists and other folks, like jeb bush the kinder gentler approach to immigration and say kasich was on that too. >> because there are so many leaders in the republican party playing to the voters worst instincts, it's hard to take a reasonable position in the republican field. it's annish sthu if you look at where the country is going, the republican party is going toward irrelevancy. >> the latino vote. you can't win a national
4:35 am
election. it doesn't work. >> you can't get the hispanic vote by saying we don't like you. >> who is in is the big decision depending on the perspective. let's look at the latest again. this is a cnn poll. fox news has their own criteria. they are going to take their last five credible polls, the top ten make a prime time debate. this morning, a cbs poll we factored in. trump, bush walker carson cruz huckabee rubio, kasich and christie. just missing, perry, graham, santorum santorum. perry and santorum ran last time. if you are in the second tier, you are hoping to slingshot out later. who has the most to lose? never mind who has the most to win, who has the most to lose?
4:36 am
>> i think trump that has most to lose. he is going to be center stage. is he going to go after people? i think people are looking to see if he's a serious candidate. he's got to figure out how to approach that and maintain this momentum that he has. it's been a surprise. >> what gets me is how deep it is. there's four exgovernors in it. what surprises me is how deep the field is big time names, how small they are acting. >> if you look from experience democrats are out there saying i don't like any of them. this is a very impressive field. eight or nine governors, a handful of senators business executives a top neurosurgeon. >> it's ridiculous the things they are doing. they are demeaning the process and their party. >> walker has the most to lose. i get your point about trump. for trump, a performer or

president? if he holds, he's fine. if he grows, the republican party has a problem. they think do we spend money against this guy if he grows. if you are walking and the candidate of the summer leading in iowa and coming out of new hampshire. if the establishment of trump rises, we are going to pick one horse tharks is jeb bush. >> he's the known to the establishment. walker would be a flyer for them. >> here is an interesting one for them. a new poll. these are the republicans in new hampshire. nobody votes for six months. reaffirmation, trump at 24 bush at 12. trump is the driving force right now. let's switch to the nbc/wall street journal poll. as we end the conversation a conversation in washington is does joe biden give it a serious look? hillary clinton has the money, infrastructure and support. you have a positive or negative view of hillary clinton? if you look, the positive view is down from june a couple
4:38 am
months to 37%. negative 48% now. is that enough? is that enough to get joe biden to think? she has some weakenses, but she's got a lot of strengths. >> key is use of the conversation in washington. itis not in iowa. itis not in south carolina or new hampshire in terms of wanting joe biden to get into this. >> i don't know the answer to the question because i can't predict the future. if she hasn't messed up as badly as she has, we wouldn't be having this conversation. >> the sitting vice president of the united states, is he still thinking about it? >> we will be watching that. john thanks for that. concerns arising here in new york city as an outbreak of legionnaires disease is expanding. dozens of cases reported. we are going to tell you what you need to know, next. she'll log in with her smile. he'll have his very own personal assistant. and this guy won't just surf the web. he'll touch it.

a deadly outbreak of legionnaires disease in new york city is raising the alarm. at least 80 reported cases of the disease, including seven people killed are linked to people in the bronx where the
4:43 am
cooling systems tested positive for the bacteria. what is the disease and who is at risk? >> joining us the director of the national institute of health. we go to the source to get the answer to the questions. good to see you, doctor. what exactly is legionnaires disease? >> it is a disease caused bay bacteria. it is a disease that is spread through a very interesting way of watery mist. it is related to a contamination of water in water cooling towers on the top of buildings. historically some people may remember back in '76 there was an outbreak at the bell view stratford hotel, which made many people ill and many people
4:44 am
actually died until we figured out, the cdc figured out what this disease is. as it turned out, it's caused by a bacteria. itis not spread from person to person. it's environmentally spread. that's a reason you don't have to worry about one person giving it to another. when it's in the environment it can spread as we are seeing in new york city. >> why are we seeing the up tick and you talk about the numbers, 81 reported cases, seven deaths. i understand it's more common in high poverty neighborhoods. >> right. it is because what you have is you have towers water towers that are not particularly well kept. the bacteria likes to live in warm water that is actually dirty with sludge in it as you might see in water towers. the reason we are seeing and might even see more cases is that the incubation period from
4:45 am
the time you get exposed until the time you get sick is anywhere from 2 to 14 days. >> oh wow. >> if someone gets exposed now, they could get sick ten to 14 days later. health authorities in new york city are watching it closely. >> we have seen cases of it before. you talked about the outbreak in the '70s. why is this one concern sng. >> it's concerning because you don't want this to happen. tleez the kind of things you can avoid if you take proper care of environmental issues such as the towers. you don't like to see an explosion of cases where 81 people get sick and seven people die. and the concern is it comes out of nowhere. this is what happens with legionnaires disease. in the united states every year we see anywhere from 8,000 to 18,000 hospitalized cases. >> right. >> likely many more that don't get to a hospital.
4:46 am
>> what is the symptoms. people are paying attention. what are the symptoms and how do we protect ourselves? >> the classic symptoms of the lung component, there's a less serious type called pontiac fever. that's not what we are dealing with right now. the major symptom and sign is lung involvement. pneumonia, you get a fever, ma lace system ikic things. the jurnd lying thing is pneumonia. people with diseases are susceptible to getting the illness. renal disease, people who smoke, elderly people. those are the one that is are more susceptible to the serious complications. >> doctor great information for us. thank you for joining us from the nih this morning.

it's been five years since those 33 miners were wrapped more than half a mile underground in a collapsed mind. cnn looks back at the dangerous operation that brought those men out alive. >> frustration is mounting. plan b's drill is stuck just feet away from the 33 trapped miners. >> what in god's name are we going to do now? >> it doesn't move up or down. >> it's like did we come this far and go through all this and this thing is stuck here? >> then, a loud pop.
4:52 am
they can't figure it out. then the drill starts moving. >> science, no-how and will already applied. but at the end of the day, the big guy had everything to do with this rescue. >> a short time later -- >> i turned around. i gave the thumb's up. >> even jeff heart is celebrating. >> translator: when i saw the drill bit break through, that was by the hand of god that the miracle was done. >> oh my gosh that's intense. rosa flores is here with a miracle five years after the rescue. what a story.
4:53 am
it gripped the world. when these guys came out, they became overnight celebrities back in chile. what's happened to them? >> there's so much drama around this story and so much that we didn't know that you're going to find out in this special report that keeps you to your seat because these guys were able to allow us into their homes, share some of those riveting stories with us and explain that what we all watched on tv was not exactly what was happening. there was a time when it was actually on a replay. none of us knew that. we're going to reveal that in this special report. all of those deeds kind of give you a sense of -- they're psychologically having a lot of trouble, financially having a lot of trouble.
4:54 am
the world forgot them. we're going to reveal some of those juicy details in this special report. >> some of them are having psychological issues being trapped that long and feared for dead. is that ptsd kind of stuff? >> yes. a doctor said a lot of these guys had a death wish. just imagine being trapped, not knowing if the world even knows you're alive. for all they knew everybody else up above stopped looking. they thought they were dead. imagine living in a sauna . it's dirt floor. they can't breathe. they don't have food. some of them were sick. and a lot of them just wanted to die is what the doctor said. >> you're going to tell us all about these back stories.

5:00 am
good morning. welcome to your "new day." it is tuesday, august 4th 8:00 in the east. we have three new national polls. donald trump is on top. he is riding a wave of voter anger and media attention and is at his strongest position yesterday, atop the field ahead of this first presidential debate. the newest poll shows trump with 24%, jeb bush 13. you see the numbers there. this is very relevant. bloomberg, trump leading by a 2-1 margin. now we have the poll of polls. >> look at this new fox poll. it has trump at his highest personal best yet at 26%. what does all of this mean for
5:01 am
thursday eers thursday's debate? in the new hampshire forum last night who was missing? >> reporter: good morning. we're only a few hours away from learning which ten candidates will be on that debate stage on thursday night. for the top tier candidates here last night's forum was a chance for them to practice their debate talking points. for those who won't make the cut, it was still a chance to connect with voters albeit on a much much smaller stage. >> please welcome the candidates. >> reporter: the first gop forum wasn't technically a debate. but it certainly felt like a preview. on monday night 14 presidential hopefuls for the republican ticket took the stage in new hampshire. >> i pledge allegiance to the flag. >> reporter: the candidates discussing their policies. and some using their time to
5:02 am
dole out purchases against hillary clinton. >> she lied about benghazi. she has lied about her servers and the kind of information she had on her servers. these go to the core of her character. >> reporter: lindsey graham positioned himself as the best candidate to take on the clinton. >> as to the clintons i've been dealing with this crowd for 21 years. when she says i'll tell you about building the pipeline when i get to be president she won't. and when she tells us trust me you've got all the e-mails that you need we haven't even scratched the surface. >> reporter: noticeably absent the current gop front runner. donald trump is still surging above the rest in three polls.
5:03 am
he's leading jeb bush by double digits. on sunday, the donald told nbc news he doesn't think you can artificially prepare for a debate. the unconventional debate prep from an unconventional candidate. but fellow candidate governor john kasich says he's not worried. >> maybe i'll give him a hug. i don't know. i don't think about all that. it's not important. what's important for me is what i say. there's going to be to so much time between now and then. >> reporter: trump did not come up at all during the forum. the candidates were more focused on selling their own policy positions. it's a sign the folks who are with him on stage thursdays night are going to do their very best to keep their focus on them and not on the front runner.
5:04 am
>> at some point they're going to have to deal with the man. let's discuss these recent polls. we have cnn political commentator and jeb bush supporter ana navarro. and jeffrey lord. good morning to both of you. there is no more trump bump ana. this is the real deal. he's on top of the every poll. he is obviously the face of your party's discontent. yes the media is fanning trump's flames a little bit, but that's not all that's going on here. what's your latest take on it? >> i think he has been able to unify the anti-establishment vote. that's why you see the numbers for practically everybody else going down. he has been able to become the guy for that mooumt. i think it sent a very strong message to everybody else
5:05 am
running that there is a lot of anger, a lot of frustration, a lot of fear around concern amongst republican voters. >> we have some new poll numbers. there are a lot of polls out this morning, jeffrey. this one is cbs. this one just came out with trump at 24%, jeb bush as the closest, second at 13. the next poll is bloomberg, that's 21%. the third one is fox and it has trump at 26%. how do you explain why he is so far ahead of all the other people? >> well the one thing here these polls are no longer outliarsoutlie er outlieers. in watches that debate last night, i had the sense -- and i suspect chris will remember this
5:06 am
tale. when walter mondale, his mother said he reminded her of bland mush. this reminded me to some degree when you compare it to trump of republican poleta. >> my father loved walter mondale. the question is how does he win? now i know that would have been an outrageous suggestion early on. at some point you have to hold people accountable for their lack of progress. obviously the barrier to entry we keep hearing is policy. here's what he would do about, let's say, trade.
5:07 am
here's his answer. >> we have to negotiate great trade deals. i would get the best deals. i'd say congratulations, handle china. i'd get other guys. i'd say good luck here's japan. >> if that answer were given by jeb bush he would be getting beaten with a big stick for a long time by the media. >> he'd be beaten with a big stick by his friends, including me. look there's people who can give substantial answers and there's people who can't. i think that's part of the reason why donald trump did not show up to that forum yesterday. it wasn't a debate but it was a forum that had substantial questions on policy issues. that's his answer on trade. his answer on immigration is i'm going to build a wall.
5:08 am
his answer on health care is i'm going to replace obamacare with something that's great and terrific. there's no substance there. i think that one of the things we're all watching for is will donald trump show up with some policy with some substance on thursday night? or will it be more of the same? if he shows up with substance, i think we're all going to be surprised. >> let's look at the cnn poll of polls. that's crunching all the numbers together. here's how it looks. trump obviously is in the lead. so he will be there. then there's a whole list of candidates bush walker cruz paul. it looks like chris christie is going to make it and john kasich is going to make it. here's who's not going to make it perry, jindal santorum and
5:09 am
gilmore gilmore. what do you think voters lose out on? >> in truth, i'd love to see them all on stage. i realize it's unwieldy. i think they should have tried to find a way to do that. one of the interesting things in terms of governor perry's situation, he has been the most vociferous in his anti-trump attacks. i believe he said he was a cancer on the party. this hasn't helped him at all. the idea that you're going to get on a stage and bellow at donald trump and think that will help you, i think that's a mistake. >> strong point. ana, that raises a significant issue. if you say bad things about trump on the stage which some are anticipating that does not
5:10 am
necessarily help you win his base. what is the right strategy for the people on the stage around donald trump? >> i don't think the strategy is to say bad things about donald trump, because then he gets the right to rebuttal. if he goes after anybody on that stage directly they're going to get a 30-second rebuttal. it would serve them all well if they stop attacking each other and actually answer the policy issues. i don't think you go after trump's voters. i think if you don't like trump, it's one thing. but i think the message that's being sent by republican primary voters is loud and clear. >> ana, jeffrey, thank you so much for being on with us and previewing all this. we should mention that we've been inviteing donald trump on "new day" for weeks now.
5:11 am
he has thus far declined our invitation. we're about to take it personally but we haven't yet. >> donuts coffee ride here and back on my shoulders. whatever it takes to get him here. 461 days. we've got some time to work on him. the former ferguson missouri flifr police officer who shot and killed michael brown is breaking his silence in a new yorker interview. darren wilson says he does not regret what he did that day. michael brown's family infuriate infuriated by this. >> he literally has moved away. he's moved to a new home where he has a young daughter born in march. he's also got cameras installed outside that home and his name is not even on the property.
5:12 am
his comments in the new yorker raising questions. darren wilson speaking out, almost a year after shooting and killing unarmed 18-year-old michael brown. a new photo of the former police officer on the cover of an in-depth interview. the now 29-year-old lives in an undisclosed new home. very few know where. far from wilson's wish for he and his wife. wilson now says he'll only go to places where there are like-minded individuals and it's not a mixing pot. and about the death that sparked outrage, wilson says he doesn't think of michael brown as a person because, quote, it doesn't matter at this point. when asked if he thought brown was truly a bad guy, wilson says
5:13 am
i only knew him for those 45 seconds in which he was trying to kill me so i don't know. >> there's so many inconsistencies throughout the article. >> wilson admittedly has not read the justice department's report on the systemic racism in ferguson. he says he's not going to keep living in the past. wilson says if you live in a high crime area with a lot of poverty there's going to be a large police presence. he claims it's not a race issue. he says that in ferguson there's a lack of initiative to get a job. the youth are running the streets, he says not worried about working in the morning. >> darren wilson is no racist. i know him well. i think the article misrepresentativemis misrepresents who he is.
5:14 am
>> he has not been hired at other police departments because they see him as a liability. he says he'd like to return to the portion police departmentferguson police department to prove he was not defeated. there's outrage this morning after a kentucky sheriff's department is caught on tape after handcuffing an eight-year-old boy above the elbows for misbehaving. a nine-year-old girl was also retrainre restrained by the same officer. >> we know this actually occurred in november of 2014. there were three incidents, two children involved here. essentially the lawsuit was saying that the use of handcuffs was excessive force and a violation of the americans with disabilities act. take a look. >> now are you going to behave the way you know you're supposed to or suffer the consequences.
5:15 am
>> this controversial video is difficult to watch. the sheriff's department restrains the third grade boy with handcuffs. according to the complaint the boy's arms pulled with excessive force behind his back. he can be heard crying out in pain. the small eight-year-old child suffers from disabilities related to adhd and a history of trauma is shown in the 15 minute video cuffed at the biceps. his wrists apparently too small for the adult sized restraints. >> you can do what we've asked you to. >> it hurts. >> sit down on the chair like i asked you to. >> that officer identified in court documents as department kevin sumner. also named the sheriff of the county alleging his failure to
5:16 am
train and supervise sumner. >> as long as you're acting up you're not going to get them off. are you done yet? >> the complaint was submitted on behalf of the young boy from the video identified only as sr as well as another special needs student, a nine-year-old girl who was also handcuffed in the same manner by officer sumner on two separate occasions, causing pain and trauma according to the lawsuit. >> there was no legitimate law enforcement purpose there. all of the behavior was related to their specific disabilities. >> if you want the handcuffs off, you've got to stop kicking. do you want them off or not? it's up to you. >> and we just received the
5:17 am
statement from the public schools. they say that law enforcement officers are assigned to their schools basically to protect the students and staff members. they say they are not called upon by staff to punish or discipline a student who engaged in a school related offense. that coming from the school where it occurred. >> we will be following up on it today and moving forward. there are more than 13,000 people being evacuated as crews battle the rocky wildfire. thousands of structures now under threat. this is one of many fires torching the state from day to day. any progress? >> reporter: well there has been some progress chris. you're talking about a fire that is massive. we now know that it has charred some 62,000 acres. they do have 12% containment,
5:18 am
which is where it was yesterday afternoon as well. they like to use these big roads out here these rural highways as sort of active containment lines. one of these highways out here highway 20 where they were working to keep the fire on one side of it that it did jump over it at one spot or so. when they are watching these fires, they have firefighters who actively keep their backs to the fire to face out to the other side to see if any embers blow across and start fires over there. they try to knock those fires down very quickly. in california we're talking about 21 fires burning across the state. it is definitely clear that the effects of the drought are being felt. it is much cooler out here this morning and that is good for
5:19 am
fighting fires. northern california at night gets cool. during the day we could see temperatures around 100 degrees. hopefully they'll get some progress in these dark hours here. >> lots of technology involved but they really rely on the human eye and the human effort on the ground to fight those fires. a suspected cop killer is expected to be arraigned today. he is accused of shooting and killing sean bolton after he apparently interrupted some sort of drug deal. take a look at this heart pounding rescue caught on video in california. a sheriff's deputy pulls a man out of a car and off train tracks. the driver was stuck on the tracks. the deputy saw him in trouble and pulled him to safety with
5:20 am
barely a second to spare. >> oh my goodness heart pounding. >> and the heroism of the deputy. >> i think that very often in talking with these men and women, they don't think. >> they react. >> they just do. they have their training and they have what is in their head and their heart. >> i think what separates these men and women who make it their job every day is they run toward what many run away from. big story this morning and it will be for some time. this video of this kid, an eight-year-old. he's cuffed above the elbows. this is done by a school resource officer, also known as a sheriff. why this kid? kid has adhd. what was going on? does it make this legal or okay?
5:21 am
we have a father who can tell you what -- everyone loves the picture i posted of you. at&t reminds you it can wait. i called for help as soon as i saw her. i found her wandering miles from home. when the phone rang at 5am i knew it was about mom. i see how hard it's been on her at work and i want to help. for the 5 million americans living with alzheimer's and millions more who feel its effects. let's walk together to make an even bigger impact and end alzheimer's for good. find your walk near you at alz.org/walk.

here we go again. another day shackled by wires. how long do we have to keep untangling for just a little taste of power? who knew charging could be so... draining? you can keep plugging away... or, you can change the way you charge. the samsung galaxy s6 and s6 edge, with built-in wireless charging capabilities. i mean there's really no way to look at this video and not be upset by it. it's a kid, eight years old, he has adhd. he's handcuffed above his elbows allegedly for misbehaving in school. take a look. >> you can either behave the way
5:25 am
you know you're supposed to or suffer the consequences. >> if it's so terrible why are we showing it to you? because it happens a lot. and the aclu in this case is suing on behalf of this boy and a nine-year-old girl who also has adhd. they were handcuffed by the same resource officer who works at the school who used to be a teacher also. the girl had to go to the hospital because she had a severe mental crisis. we have a father who has a kid who has special needs who's on the autism spectrum. he recorded staff members bullying his son in a new jersey class room. please take us through what happened with your kid. >> thank you. first let me say my heart goes out to these children and their parents. in my case the teaching staff
5:26 am
were just treating my son horrendously. they were tormenting him in many ways. it was this culture created where it was okay to mock him, put him down. and it really had this long lasting effect where he started lashing out at them. because when you are abused yourself sometimes you will begin to react. none of it was his fault. when i see what happened to this little boy and this girl i know they didn't do anything wrong. they're young children with special needs. and we can't treat them like they're prisoners. that's like the language. when i was listening to the officer, i felt like he was talking to a prisoner in a jail cell. that type of medieval thought, where you torment someone with special needs and lock them up and think that will change their behavior is 100% wrong.
5:27 am
these children need love and respect and that's how they begin to understand and learn. >> what is the root of the problem when you look at something like this video? and is it the same problem as you believe you saw in your own case? is it lack of training? is it callousness? why do you think he would put restraints on this kid, just to hurt him? >> i only have the video to go from. but it's the attitude. some people in my opinion simply should not be teachers or in schools. if you don't have the ability to control yourself and instead of locking a kid up because you're frustrated -- it's not the kid's fault. same thing with the people who were in my son's class. they clearly had no ability. none of them should have been in the class room. that's why we need better training and we need to be able to fire these people. because unfortunately in my case because of new jersey's
5:28 am
strong tenure law, the teacher was able to keep her job. this person should -- the officer should never be allowed with young children again. he doesn't know how to deal and treat children with respect. when he's locking him up and saying listen to me or i'm going to punish you really bad. >> the school's opinion here the school's statement, sros are law enforcement officers who are assigned to the school to maintain safe. they are not called upon by school district staff to punish or discipline a student who engages in a school related offense. in other words, this kid must be treated that way and the officer has to do what he can, in this case putting on the handcuffs. is it ever okay? >> no i don't believe it is. i don't think a 56 pound young boy is a threat. you know again, when you treat
5:29 am
dealing with special needs of any kind like a law enforcement issue, which is what they did, then you're going to result in people being handcuffed. that's not what they need. they need behaviors. look there are so many children every year with special needs. it's truly a crisis in our country. we really need to deal with this seriously. we need more schools to understand this is going to be going on and on and that children needed to be treated with dignity and respect, not as if they just committed a crime. >> 12% of the mainstream school population is denoted as special needs. they are 75% at least of the case where is this type of restraint is used. obviously it speaks to a need to do something differently and better. thank you very much for sharing your story. appreciate it. >> thank you. >> now that you heard from a

5:34 am
. two and a half million americans can continue to get their important, excellent preventive health care at planned parenthood. what we're seeing is very little about women's health care or even fetal tissue research and has everything to do with republican primary politics. >> that was planned parenthood's executive vice president reacting to the failed vote in the senate to defund planned parenthood. that effort was renewed by controversial sting videos purporting to show planned parenthood doctors negotiating over the transfer of fetal
5:35 am
tissue. >> thanks for having me on. >> one of your goals in releasing the videos was pushing congress to defund planned parenthood. last night that effort failed. so what's your next move? >> sure. so you know, what the vote in the senate didn't show yesterday is that there's certainly already a bipartisan majority that object to planned parenthood's harvest of fetal or organs were resale. >> planned parenthood says it shows them trying to recoup their cost for the transfer of fetal tissue to biotech companies and that's totally legal. >> planned parenthood still has not addressed the claim about partial birth abortions, which
5:36 am
is a really clear description given by their senior director of medical services from the very first video that we produced. on the second point planned parenthood hand produced any evidence that they have any real costs associated with the sale of fetal tissue. especially when they're partnered with a feebiotech company. all those costs are absorbed by other outside biotech companies, yet planned parenthood is still receiving payments per specimen they produce. >> we did ask planned parenthood about their claims and we asked stem express. both of them say you are wrong. they say the only costs that planned parenthood gets are the costs for transfer if it involved storage, if it involves the time it takes a staff member to get consent from a patient. let me read to you the statement
5:37 am
stem express gave us. stem express does not pay planned parenthood for fetal tissue. stem express reimbursed planned parenthood for their reasonable costs associated with the procurement costs. associated with documentation and staff participation. here are two different organizations, planned parenthood and the middleman saying they're not being paid for the sale of fetal tissue. >> yeah. i think it's really cute they have their stories straight and they're covering up for each other. the question that should be asked is if you go to our swietd website, we have an advertisement from stem express which tells planned parenthood that they could make a fiscal profit if they partnered with stem express to supply aborted
5:38 am
fetal tissue. and that advertisement was endorsed by one of planned parenthood's medical directors. i'm not sure how their flyer squares with the statement they just gave you. >> critics of your organization say you're not journalists as you purport to be on your website, but rather you're violent extremists . they say really you're trying to shut down all planned parenthoods and women's access to things like birth control and other services they provide. do you have any ties to operation rescue? >> so a couple of things. number one, i'm not a violent person and i never have been and i never will be. troy newman is one of the board members for the center for medical progress. >> and toyroy newman is the president of operation rescue.
5:39 am
operation rescue does have a history of violence against clinics. >> i don't think that's true at all. you'd have to talk to troy about the full history of operation rescue and some of those details. but i don't think that's a fair characterization as all. the two yearlong that the center for medical problem conducted about the sale of fetal tissue ultimately that's about exposing to the public the reality of how planned parenthood conducts their fetal tissue sales and what their relationship with companies like stem express is like. it's specifically about showing the public exactly how those sales work and documenting those in a way that everybody can see. >> david, last 21 minutes from now we understand that you plan to put out another one of your under cover videos. there have been two restraining orders against your videos, one from a superior court, one from a judge just this week because
5:40 am
they believe that you may have done something illegal in obtaining these videos. can you tell what you say the next video you're going to put out contains? >> sure. the next video that should go up in about an hour or so is going to be much in the vein of the first four videos that have come out so far. but perhaps it's going to be even more shocking. you're going to see evidence of how planned parenthood is going to sell fully exact fetuses to buyers of aborted fetal tissue. and those are situations where no fetus -- like the -- no chemical like that can be used to kill the fetus beforehand because that poisons the organs and the tushissues. it's prima fascia evidence of born alive fetuses. >> we appreciate getting your

darren wilson the former ferguson missouri police officer who shot and killed michael brown is breaking his silence. the brown family says his comments only prove he is a racist. here is cnn commentator and "new york times" columnist charles blow. >> it won't change anyone's mind. the people who were already suspicious of darren wilson will remain suspicious. the people who thought he was doing the right thing will continue to believe that. >> was it smart to do this?
5:52 am
we know there's ongoing litigation now. >> right. >> were you curious about the timing of it? >> i'm curious about whether or not it's smart or not. i'm sure he and his lawyers have made a calculation about whether or not he should speak now. that may be to influence if it's indeed heard by a jury influence the people who might hear it. >> he's careful in the article about certain things, right? >> right. he doesn't discuss very much about the actual incident itself. it is an effort to humanize him. i think he and his lawyers may have thought that was a good idea. i'm not sure it comes across that way to me. >> often times this kind of thing is sort of hey, now i get to speak my peace, my side. >> i'm not sure he achooesieves that. he cements some people's view of him as insensitive. >> let's look at some of the
5:53 am
language. this is the author who sat down with him and talks about him using what he describes as sort of a racial language. pregang culture just running around in the streets not worried about working in the morning, just worried about your immediate gratification. what do you make of his use of language? >> it's incredibly broad brush and offensive and bracing in a way. you know that people always use inner city as kind of a substitute for blackness in america. and to categorize all of those young men or young people as not necessarily being interested in work or betterment. it does paint him -- it is racialized language. >> his new reality is very different. he's a freeman man, but not a free man. living in seclusion. he moved.

they have cameras everywhere synced to his phone. if he goes out in public to get a meal somewhere -- we try to go somewhere with like minded individuals, not a mixing pot. >> i understand in this context that this is a sad situation all the way around. no one should live with death threats. but he's still living a life. i don't believe that mike brown should be dead. the escalation in that interaction, i believe, did not have to happen. and mike brown could have been taken into custody without the escalation. so i think it's going to be hard for some people to feel sympathy for someone who took a life but is still alive. and even though that new life is hard you're still breathing. >> he said he thinks that the

d.o.j. numbered were skewed. >> i don't know how you know that if you didn't reat thed the report. he says it's not my job to solve 30 years of history in 30 minutes. i try to separate that from the incident itself. isn't that the exquisite beauty of kind of structural racism that it operates like the beehive? this individual bee doesn't have to know the entirety and the enormity of the hive. they can just do their job. and they are contributing to it and you don't each have to do a job and benefit from the hive and its deadly effects. none of us are separate from this. none of us as americans have our hands free and clean of this. if you have a municipality you
