3:00 am
bomb went off. let's get right to cnn's andrew stevens live for us in bangkok with all the breaking details. what do we know, >> reporter: good morning, alisyn. significant developments today with the hunt for that man. he is a suspect rather than a person of interest as this moves forward 24 hours after the blast. this blast described by the prime minister as the worst attack on thai soil. this morning, thai officials are on the hunt for this man. they believe could be connected to the bomb that ripped through central bankok. his backpack was on before the blast, but not after. newly released cell phone video captures the chaotic scene during rush hour. tourists and locals walk along a popular foot bridge before the
3:01 am
explosion below. >> get on the sky walk. i hear a huge explosion. i see cars on fire. >> reporter: people waiting in traffic capture the bomb going off in front of them, smoke and embers fill the air. surveillance video capturing the large and deadly blast lighting up the sky. >> i saw five ambulances screaming away from the scene. i saw there were hundreds of meds and police, fire brigade. >>reporter: the bomb claiming over 100 lives. this was a deliberate act of terror, targeting a shrine also near a large shopping mall. >> a touristic site. it tells me that this group wants to hit at the economy, do a lot of damage. >> reporter: thai officials telling the state run news agency, they didn't see the
3:02 am
warning of possible attacks, but note specifics. horrific scenes from the bomb blast less than 24 hours ago. the government is clearly saying it was a deliberate target. it is targeting tourists to hurt the thai economy. they have a suspect, but not a motive as to why they want to attack the economy, what is the bottom line here. the search continues. alisyn? >> thank you. cnn global affairs analyst, bobby ghosh. let's talk about what happened this morning. there was another explosion, no injuries reported, but you think they are connected? >> hard to know if they are connected. it's the second attack. it is also an attack on a tourist. it appears somebody through a grenade. it missed the bridge and fell
3:03 am
into the river, thankfully, as a result, there were no casualties, no injuries. that bridge is, again, popular with tourists. i have been there. people go to get on boats that basically tour the river, which is one of the great tourist attractio attractions. you go through them. there are big hotels nearby. they have commonly used by tourists. if there is a connection, what would seem to be the threat is that both of these attack tourists, whether they are done by the same perpetrators or the second is opportunistic. we will find out. >> phil, who do you think is behind this? >> we have a couple clues to start with. first and most obviously, we don't have a claim. second, we have sites that are not like the sites i would expect if it were isis or al
3:04 am
qaeda. the sites i would expect would be western embassies, western, american, australia. hotels, there are plenty of hotels in the area. something you could identify with the west. the third is, we don't appear to have a suicide bomber. a pipe bomb in a backpack, a grenade this morning. those suggest to me that this might be a local situation, political, maybe from the insurgency in the south, though i doubt that. that said, the fact we have so little information 24 hours in, makes me skeptical we have any confidence. we don't know. >> the red shirts. who are they? what do we know about them? >> it would be unusual for them if it were. they are political opposition against military. we first saw them a few years ago. they are in favor of the prime minister of thailand.
3:05 am
>> prodemocracy. >> prodemocracy, they want elections. they are a political group, not a terrorist group. there has been violence connected to them, but typically, it's reaction to police beatings and things like that. this is very, very outside their style. >> they have launched attacks on security forces or government buildings, but this is not their m.o. there is that suspect who authorities are now calling a suspect, not a person of interest on the video that they are looking for this morning. you can see the spot shadow there. do the pictures tell you anything, phil? >> not too much. there's a couple tiny clues here you might be able to draw. the first, we only have one suspect. if that suspect was involved, it does not appear to be well planned out conspiracy where people said we are going to kill hundreds. they missed today. that tells me something.
3:06 am
second, there's a tiny report we opened with. if somebody called in to talk about and warn about the attack, i have a couple questions. what was the accent of that person? was it a foreigner or somebody who is local? there are a couple clues, but we don't have a lot to go on. it's chaos. yesterday, we had reports of a couple bombs in the area that turned out to be tun true. then over the course of a day or two, the smoke clears, you can begin the investigation. then longer term, the mapout. we are in stage one where we have a lot of chaos around here. >> bobby, was there a facebook posting about this, that you know of? >> rumors of things posted and taken down. itis hard to know. as phil says, this is very much in the kind of confusion that often, immediately follows these attacks. >> judging by the picture, if
3:07 am
that man is, indeed involved, a vivid looking t-shirt. he looks distinctive. that person will have been noticed and i'm sure, as we speak police are getting phone calls. a lot of them will not be accurate. >> bobby, bankok, what does that mean? is this unusual? >> very much unusual. this is not a typical target. it's a great tourist destination. there's been political upheaval in bankok. there's nothing to do with the international community. it is not to do with religion or sectarian interest. it is a police cal dispute. violence in a country that otherwise is open and inviting to tourists. >> where does your gut tell you this investigation will go? >> local and relatively small. that is some sort of event that has to do with local grievances.
3:08 am
people who aren't connected nationally. given the fact we have one individual showing up, unlike london or madrid 2005, 2006, a series of attacks, i do not think it is international. >> thank you. very helpful this morning. also breaking this morning, indonesian search teams reached the site where a jet crashed over the weekend. all 54 people on board were killed. they located the plane's black box. kathy is live with more. it's very important to find the black box. >> reporter: absolutely. such tragedy for the families of those on board. people were not able to survive the crash. confirmation today, that indeed, the rescue teams reached the sight. this is now a search and recovery mission. once again, the bad weather is
3:09 am
hampering that. the teams are stuck on the mountain for another night. when they have the clear weather, they were able to locate the bodies and put them in body bags. now, they can't get them off the mountain to the nearby airport. that is something that the families will want to see done quickly to be identified and returned to the families and the black box. that will hold the key to knowing what went wrong here. this is a country with a checkered history when it comes to air safety. we saw three fatal crashes in less than a year. this is the latest of the crashes we talk about all too often. >> they have to do something about that airline. meanwhile, we have other breaking news. this is in connection with the toxic explosions in northern china. we know ten top executives of the company that own that is warehouse. they have been detained, including the president and vice
3:10 am
president. that disaster killed at least 114 people wednesday. 57 others are still missing this morning. investigations into workplace safety and negligence at the workplace are -- >> brand-new cnn numbers show trump made big gains since last month. he commands 24% of the republican vote. that's not only a surprise this morning, there are many more. let's get to it. sara joins us live from washington this morning. good morning, sara. >> thank you for having me. the top numbers, a big number for trump. 24%, improving from july. jeb bush is second, 13%. it's a better standing than we saw yesterday rounding out the top three with ben carson. let's take a look at how donald trump is doing in the opinion
3:11 am
numbers, the all important favorable/infavorable numbers. he is making big gains there as well. 58% of republican voters now have a favorable view of trump. that's up eight points from july. it's a big jump in a short amount of time. that's another thing. i'm sure we can expect to hear the donald bragging about. the other numbers are how he does on specific issues. this is a guy that rolled out one policy plan, we got it this week on immigration. take a look at how he does. 45% thinks donald trump would handle the economy best. 18% say that of social issues, 44% on illegal immigration. and on dealing with isis, another 32% saying that donald trump would handle it best. these are incredible gains just from july. there's one other number to point out. that is how donald trump is
3:12 am
doing with women. this is something we were concerned about coming out of the fox news debate, the exchange with megyn kelly. our poll shows they have a favorable view of him. 60% of women have a favorable view, three points higher than men, 57% of men have a favorable view of donald trump. i don't want to say it's all good news for the donald in the poll. there's a big kcaveat. that is whether they would be better off with or without donald trump in terms of 2016. 38% said their chances would be better in 2016. 58% said their chances would be better without trump in 2016. he had work to do to win over republican voters. >> the question with that number is why. it is inconsistent with the fall line of the polling. that means one or two things. it's not a corrupted sample, but a sample of what types of voters are there, versus a moderate
3:13 am
base or moderate expectation moving forwards. the second thing is, this is still about his being that early rabbit. he's pushing everybody out in front, people don't think he has staying power. what do you think it is? >> a couple things. trump is appealing beyond the republican party. in iowa, we talked to people who liked hillary clinton and donald trump. the enthusiasm we are seeing for him is not all republican voters. i think people have reservations about whether donald trump and his blunt speak is the best way to win the white house. as we get further along in the process, is this person presidential? how would this person appear in the white house? people are unsure how trump's rhetoric transfers over. they like the refreshing talk, but not sold yet. >> that number on women is going to be a big deal. this is a major attack zone on
3:14 am
him. now issuing a challenge to the rest of the field, we are going to all the campaigns to get their numbers of where women are in their staff, what kind of position, how they are paid. it will be interesting if he's the advocate on that. sara, thank you very much. we are going to bring you back in. >> we will talk to rick perry and george pataki later this morning. the hillary clinton e-mail saga continues. intelligence officials assigned to comb through her private server recommending hundreds of e-mails get a deeper review. evan perez is live in washington with more. what are they finding? >> good morning, alisyn. they are taking a closer look at 305 documents from hillary clinton's private e-mail server for possible classified information. the state department told the judge the e-mails were flagged as part of a review from five intelligence agencies. out of a sample of approximately
3:15 am
20% of clinton e-mails, they have recommended 305 documents, 5.1% for referral to agencies. this comes as the fbi conducts its own investigation of clinton's server. that probe began after intelligence agencies raised concerns about the security of classified information in the clinton e-mails. the filing is in response to the freedom act lawsuit. clinton said she didn't send or receive information that was marked as classified. clinton turned over 55,000 pages of e-mails to the state department. there's a long way, michaela, to go, but this controversy that is hanging over the clinton presidential campaign comes close to being over. >> all right. many days to follow it. thank you for that. states under republican control are wasting no time with planned parenthood. five states are trying to cut
3:16 am
off money, ending contracts, allowing them to service people with medicaid. it shows planned parenthood profiting from fetal tissue sales, a charge they deny. the huge irs hack we told you about in may is far worse than reported. the irs revealing almost three times as many taxpayers were hit. 330,000 accounts, not the 100,000 originally reported. taxpayer information was compromised will be notified by male. listen to this one. this is an historic week for the u.s. military, really for all of us, period. for the first time, two women will graduate from the elite army ranger school friday. i have covered this. it is an intense two-month training course and it beats the best. only a third make it through. the progress here, highlights a
3:17 am
shortcoming. the women won't be able to join the 75th regimen because women are not allowed to serve, yet. >> that's the keyword. this is such a milestone. it has to start tapping at that glass ceiling. >> as far as we know, this was not tailored competition. they had to go out there and be with the rest of the guys. i'm telling you, we just hit the taste of it and i was rendered unconscious. >> these two graduates, if they can't serve, what do they do? >> it shows proof of performance. it's something the israeli army earned a long time ago. a step in the right direction. boy, they must be tough. >> wow! meanwhile, more good news for donald trump. the latest cnn/orv poll reveals trump's strength. the political panel, next.

3:22 am
we have a new cnn/orc poll out. it confirmed trump holds a lead over his rivals. it's about more than who is up on one specific issue. it's all the different measures across the board. let's bring in sara murray and david. hello to both of you. let's look at what will be directed as p2, here, which isn't just who is at what percentage across the board, but the rate of growth in the last month, okay? look at this. look how the race has changed. trump popping. july, he was already popular, david. now at 24. you know, bush going down. carson making some moves, but really it's about trump. how do you reckon? >> trump did better last month when you look at any poll.
3:23 am
it is amazing to see how broad this movement is. it's across every single issue. he made leaps from where he was in june when he announced his campaign. what you are seeing in talking to voter this is weekend at iowa state fair, i found this to be true. he moved from fascination to real contender. in that time, people have grown to really trust him on immigration, trust him on the economy, because they see him now, as a real contender. >> let's look at that, sara. trump is so far out ahead. he's at 45% of which republican candidate do you most trust to handle the economy? the second closest in jeb bush at 9%. tell us what you see here. >> yeah, it's incredible. i think the one strength on the issues trump was going to have is the strength on the economy. people like the idea of a businessman coming in and
3:24 am
spurring economic growth. it's always been a calling card of the republican party, the free market and trump speaks to that. somehow he's managed to turn the fact he is a billionaire into a pitch to voter who is are making less than $50,000, who don't have college degrees. this seems to be reflected in the view of how trump would handle the economy. the interesting thing is, it's not just the economy. >> let's put up numbers. >> he outpaces the field when it comes to illegal immigration and isis. he outpaces the field on social issues and he is a guy who was pro-choice. he does better than the rest of the field. >> david, the question becomes why. let's accept the data. iowa he is no longer fascination, he's contender. what is lacking in the rest of the field? that's a fair check. he may be exposing what people
3:25 am
are expecting from others. >> he's blotting out the sun in the competition. people aren't really getting a full read into the rest of the field. maybe they did when they tuned into the first debate, chris. they walked away impressed with trump's performance from the first debate. i think what is going on here is people like to be with a winner. we know that about politics. right now, he is winning. that brings more people into his fold. his style was his calling card. seeing him with stand all the attacks when everyone thought he was dead after the john mccain attacks and the battle with megyn kelly. now, it's a guy with fortitude. >> let's talk about the battle with megyn kelly, if you want to talk about that. people thought it would hurt him with women. he made a lot of comments that were distasteful.
3:26 am
yet, look at this, the new cnn poll. his favoribility among women is higher than men. >> the one caveat is he's drawing more support from men than women. it is clear, the fight with megyn kelly, the comments he made in the past have not really hurt him in the polls. >> he's higher with women than with men. >> he's higher in favor. >> proof of performance where he shows how he hires women, positions of control. their pay is as good as others. he is saying, go chase everybody else. i have shown what i have done in action. it could be a swing for him. >> when i talk to voters about the megyn kelly thing, it's a political battle. in the minds of real voters out in america, not sitting in studios, it didn't have a big impact on them. >> in that case, i wonder why
3:27 am
women like him so much? any thoughts on that, david? >> i think i talked to a bunch of republican women who find his message atrack tick. sara is right. there was the controversy that seemed to be more about the media piling on to donald trump again. i heard from a ton of women in iowa who loved the fact that donald trump stands up to the media. i don't think they are concerned about his stance on specific issues. the republican women are attracted to his message. i will say, take a look at what i find most fascinating in this poll. 98% of his supporters have a favorable view of him. they are ardent supporters and love him. when you look at the republicans in this poll that are enthusi t enthusiastic about the election, his number stays the same.
3:28 am
he's at that 24% dominating the field. bush doesn't have as much ardent support. the supporters still with him, to me, that means he can convert early support into potential votes. >> look at the field without donald trump. look at that number. it's interesting how everything changes. this is with trump. let's look without trump. it shows what the challenge is here for the party as they go forward. this is, do you think you have a better chance with trump versus without. this exposes what sara was talking about, he still have work with moderates and those of practical reality. when you look at the field without trump, the whole game changes. david, maybe that's a window into why the gop is trying to get rid of him. >> right. as you know, chris, you need to
3:29 am
do that delicately. talking about other republican camps, i don't think anyone sees getting rid of him as an option. they thought it was a summer fling. >> they almost treat donald trump with kid gloves with the exception of rand paul who came out swinging and perry who came out swinging. trump says he gets his advice on the foreign policy by watching the sunday shows. if any other candidate said that, you would blink and miss them piling on and going after them. we don't see that. >> jeb bush didn't take that on last night. >> it's fascinating, the numbers are great. thank you for your take on it.
3:30 am
>> teflon don. there's more in this poll that shows where the field is without trump, why he is where he is. we are going to talk more about it later in the show. also, as you know, "new day" has an open invite to all candidates to come on and talk to news issues, hillary, bernie, donald, jeb. today, we have texas governor rick perry and george pataki on the show. let's put them to the test. >> will do. cnn will host the next republican debate on september 16. set your watches now. >> if you don't have a watch, don't worry. we'll remind you. we'll have more on the top story. police in bankok were searching frantically for the suspect in the deadly explosion and who could be responsible for the live report.

breaking news we are following. thai officials are investigating a second blast that was heard overnight at a bank in bangkok. police are working to identify this man seen in surveillance footage suspected of being involved in the bombing outside a popular shrine. let's get the latest from andrew stephens live from bankok. what are we learning? >> reporter: well that suspect is definitely the strongest lead at this hour, michaela. police changing their language significantly. they have a suspect, the man in the yellow shirt wearing dark rimmed glasses, seen wearing a backpack into the shrine and leavie ining moments later with the backpack. he's seen taking it carefully
3:36 am
off and putting it on the ground before he left. don't know anything about the identity of this man. he's a young man. police don't know whether he is a thai national or foreigner. it's too early to tell. they are combing through a lot of video to see if there's anything unusual leading up to it. video by teem who took video of the moment. this second explosion in bankok, no direct link. the signs point to the fact they could be linked. it was what looks like a handheld device, which is thrown. no injuries. we are told police are on the scene. that is also being very, very closely looked at to see what's going on here. the thai government saying clearly, this is an attack on tourism. if you look at the horrific scenes, the moment of impact,
3:37 am
the blast taken from that night. you can see the chaos, horrific scenes and the strength of the blast. the government say thg is very, very clearly tieing tourism to hurt the economy. they have their suspect. they know the suspect, they just don't know the moment. >> let's hope they find the suspect to speak to him about all of that. thanks so much. back here at home, the sweltering heat continues to grip the east coast. let's get to chad myers with the latest forecast. what are you seeing, chad? >> another hot day. new york city got to a feels like temperature of 101. it's still hot. the cooler air is way back out to the west, keeping the northern plains cool. hot, hot, hot, humidity as well. the heat index 96 to 98 degrees. a few showers in the forecast on thursday afternoon, that's tomorrow afternoon. a cold front will cool you down

hillary clinton's e-mail troubles growing. intelligence officials flagging 300 e-mails from clinton's personal e-mail server from further review. how much of a hit is this to her campaign? let's bring in former hillary clinton presidential campaign manager, patty doyle. good morning, patty. >> good morning, how are you? >> we are doing well. this e-mail mess appears to be getting messier.
3:43 am
the fbi flagged 300 e-mails for further review. >> so far. >> so far. the senate judiciary committee wants to know why hillary's personal lawyer has three thumb drives of 30,000 e-mail, some of the information marked secret. it doesn't seem to be getting better. >> she said she used her personal e-mail out of convenience. but, she went right after that and said that looking back, it probably would have been better to have used a government e-mail, probably, truer words have never been spoken. >> it goes further. there was classified information on there. the secretary of state should know better. >> well, look, having said that was a mistake, she has turned
3:44 am
over her server to the fbi. she has given more than 30,000 work related e-mails to the state department and asked they be released publicly. she's agreed to testify in front of the benghazi committee in october where she's going to be grilled for hours upon hours and answer the questions. at this point, i don't think there's much more that she can do. i think we have to wait and see where this inquiry leads. >> you know what it is, patty? here is the thing. let me take you down a different avenue. alisyn is saying she should know better. you can argue that point. the more complicating aspect is that she did know better. the clinton's new better. that's why they had the server set up in the first place. that's why she refused to turn it over. that's why she scrubbed it. now, she will go along after all the scrubbing and she's still saying it is political.
3:45 am
the most direct question and of course we can't get hillary out to answer it now, but, do you think, as a clinton friendly, this is just political at this point? >> look, i think -- the fact that the fbi is looking at it -- >> five investigative agencies. >> i agree. i agree. but, they have also said this is not a criminal investigation. she is not the target. this is an inquiry to see whether this information -- >> how has the obama administration look purely political. that's where the trust factor comes in. >> it's not purely political. >> that's what she said. >> it is not purely political. she said it was a mistake to have done it. now, the inquiry is going to move forward and we are going to find out what we find out. as far as what she can do, she has done it.
3:46 am
she has answered questions from the press. she is going to testify. she handed over the server. now, we are going to move forward. >> hold on a second. help us understand one thing. she has said, the former secretary of state said none of the information was classified when she sent it and received it. how is that possible that someone could be secretary of state for years and not be reading classified information on their e-mail? >> from my understanding, the information that she handed over to the state department, the e-mails, it was classified when they got it. they reviewed it, it was classified after the fact. >> that's what you and she and her campaign said. however, the inspector general said that's not true. it was classified before the fact. to my larger point, doesn't the secretary of state often read classified e-mail? doesn't it stand to reason it would be classified while she was in that post?
3:47 am
>> what she said is it wasn't marked classified. i know that's a, you know, slight distinction. also, it's worth pointing out, she didn't send these classified e-mails. >> patti, here is my thing. you are a political person. you understand running campaign. you are not a lawyer or forensics looking at e-mails. this has been handled lousy by them from the beginning. it's what's fueling her biggest knock right now. yes, bernie sanders is tapping into something that is left and cultural. which democratic candidate is most honest and trust worthy is not only popping sanders to 35% and clinton at 28%, which she should never be at given her hold on the democratic side. don't you see the handling is
3:48 am
something she needs to clean up immediately. >> look, i agree it is a political problem, absolutely. here we are on this hot, monday morning talking about hillary's e-mails as opposed to talking about this, you know, expansive policy agenda she's given out already in the few months she's announced running for president. she's talked about college affordability, the economy, climate, she's talked about so many issues. here we are talking about e-mail. >> she's also talking about it selectively. please extend the invitation. >> we would love to talk to her. please let her know that. and patti, great to talk to you. >> great talking to you. thank you. >> is camerota right and cuomo

good to have you back with us on "new day." new cnn/orc polls are out showing trump with a commanding lead. does it necessarily mean he has a lock on the republican
3:54 am
nomination? should we go back in time? john is here, he's the editor of the daily beast. perspective, by looking at past elections and where they were at this point, what 400 and something days. i don't have it tattooed. if we look at what's happening now, here is what we have been talking about about where the current status is right now. >> yes, this is the status of the circus. >> should we go back in time? let's travel back in time at this point in 2011. we are going to ignore that win widget there. rick perry, 27% at this point in the game. >> more than trump. >> reality check as well, the perry rate is 2%. considerably from the high water mark. this is an important reality check. rick perry had a commanding
3:55 am
lead, almost twice what romney had at this point in the cycle. romney went nowheresville. >> what happened to rick perry? >> that's right. he had a couple major gaffes on the stump. remember the oops moment? love that. generally a philandering campaign, high expectations. dissatisfaction about the rest of the field. failure to convert. failure to convert when it came to debates and obviously rgs when voting came. we have a long way from the voting cast. >> should we go further back in time because we can? >> remember the people. newt gingrich gave him a run for the money early. santorum won iowa. >> they are still players. >> they end up in the top three. they are barely registering at this point in the cycle. >> which is important for us to know. again, really quickly, look back at the players where we are currently. don't discount the folks in the
3:56 am
single digits is what you are say sng. >> that's right. >> remember 2007? i had less gray in my hair then. we know, you worked inside giuliani's campaign. >> i did. i did. >> you have insight there. this man became the nominee but was in third place at this point. >> not only third place, but a brutal fund raising cycle. john mccain was the second place runner up in the 2000 cycle, winning new hampshire totally failed to raise money at this point in the '08 cycle. rudy giuliani was running high in the polls. >> high. >> brett thompson, a late entry was number two. the person at 27%, higher than trump is today, the campaign failed to convert when it came to actual votes in iowa, new hampshire and south carolina. >> can you almost see the moment when it happens? >> no. what you can tell is when you are in october/november, when you start getting the polling
3:57 am
solidifying, iowa was in january. this year, it's february, 2016. you can hit a pivot point. this is silly season. they start to solidify it come fall. that's when perceptions harden. the people that gave mccain a run for his money. romney give him a run for his money and huckabee, 2%. he won a number of states. >> on the democratic side, we know this was happening here. obama was at 21%, hillary clinton was taking the lead. do you think hillary has learned from this about having such a commanding lead? >> every hillary staffer and donor hopes to god she has. that obviously didn't work out. barack obama was a strong second place here catapulted ahead. he was running on inevidentibility. that is a seat change in the way the democratic party ran things before. hillary clinton trying to desperately avoid the mistakes. >> we have the benefit of
3:58 am
looking back in time. it's nice to do so with you. thank you for traveling in my time machine. fast forwarding, we have a lot of news to get to this morning. let's get to it. >> thai officials are on the hunt for this man. >> this blast comes less than 24 hours after the deadly bombing. >> a lot of damage. >> a vicious and cruel attack. >> the ones that ended up underneath -- >> there were no survivors. >> the worst concerns from the indonesian plane. >> they retrieved the black box. >> trump leading the republican pack. >> the clear front-runner for the president of the united states and will be the nominee. >> we are going to keep the families together, but they have to go. >> trump's eight-page plan is gibberish. announcer: this is "new day" with chris cuomo, alisyn
3:59 am
camerota and michaela pereira. another blast overnight in bankok, thailand. this time, at a busy pier. it does not appear anyone was hurt. >> the explosion comes as officials work around the clock to identify and track down the suspect behind monday's bombing outside a popular shrine. that one killed 22 people, injured over 100. we want you to take a look at this new video. this is whom the authorities are now -- they are being shady in truth about who they are looking at and why. it is early. they have highlighted this man in this very identifiable t-shirt. this was at the monday bombing. this is who they are looking for now. let's get more context on this with andrew stephens live in bankok. shady isn't the right word. they are hands on in terms of saying what they want to identify as a suspect, what they don't, what they think the link is. what's the reason for that?
4:00 am
>> they definitely chasing the language on this. it started as a person of interest connected to the blast. now, they are saying we have this suspect. it seems to be the video is showing pictures of this man clearly identified wearing a yellow shirt with a backpack going into the shrine. very carefully and deliberately taking the backpack off and putting it down and leaving without the backpack, the backpack stays. this is where they are going with this. at the moment, there's a development as well. this explosion and no injuries there. certainly, the thais are desperate to tie this up as quickly as possible. the prime minister here, the latest says this is the biggest attack on thai soil yet. just in this morning, another bomb goes off in bankok. this surveillance video shows water shooting into the air. the bomb exploding on the pier only a few miles away from
4:01 am
monday night's bomb. it ripped through central bankok. thai officials are on the hunt for this man believed to be connected to the bombing at the shrine. the suspect seen here in this surveillance video putting backpack under a bench and walking away. newly released cell phone video captures the chaotic scene during evening rush hour on monday. tourists and locals walk along a bridge before the explosion below. >> get up on the sky walk. that's when i hear this huge explosion. i see bodies everywhere. cars on fire. >> reporter: people waiting in traffic capture the bomb going off right in front of them, smoke and embers fill the air. surveillance video showing the unprecedented and deadly blast lighting up the night sky. >> i saw five ambulances screaming away from the scene. i saw there were hundreds of
4:02 am
medics, police, fire, brigade. >> reporter: the bomb, claiming more than 20 lives and injuring over 100. local police believe this was a, quote, deliberate act of terror targeting a hindu shrine, a tourist atrack in thailand near a mall. >> it tells me that this group wants to hit at the economy. this could do a lot of damage, especially if there's a follow on. >> reporter: thai officials saying they didn't see the warning of possible attacks. security forces are on high alert here, michaela. the city is getting back to business. the area around that shrine has been cleared. traffic is moving and people are getting on with their lives even though it was such a horrific attack and so recently. >> i'm sure their nerves are rattled. we are going to stay with this story. stay with cnn coming up on "new
4:03 am
day." breaking news about the black box from the plane that crashed. it is in the hands of investigators. they are recovering the bodies of the 54 people on board the plane. kathy novak is following it live in seoul. kathy? >> it's been two days since villagers saw the plane crash into the mountains. yesterday, they spotted the debris. it's today we are starting to get the confirmation that no one on board survived. the black box, as you say, has been found. the problem is, they are facing bad weather, again. it's going to be another night up on the mountain for the crews. what they are trying to do is build a pad so a chopper can come in, retrieve the bodies and bring them back to the airport. if the conditions don't allow for that tomorrow. it's an 8.5 mile trek. the management of the airline
4:04 am
extended sympathies to the airline. they are going to want more than that. they are hope thag the black box will reveal some information about what caused this plane to crash, killing all 44 adults, five crew and five children on board. chris? >> thank you very much for the latest. we'll stay on that. please let us know if there are developments to come back to. donald trump is not giving up his lead. he is increasing it. how do we know? the cnn/orc shows he's widening his lead. yes, he's a real estate mogul and tv reality guy. he's growing more. so, what does that mean? are people doubling down on the support of him? what about jeb bush? let's bring in sara murray joining us live from washington. what do we see in the numbers that we must know? >> let's take a look at the top line there. stunning number for trump.
4:05 am
we are talking support from 1 in 4 voters. look at jeb bush there. he's second in the poll. that's different from the fox news poll. he is losing support. a big bump for ben carson, rounding out the top three. it gives you a better idea that people like the antiestablishment candidates right now. let's take a look at donald trump's important favoribility numbers. they were sagging for a while. now, it looks like he's made that up. 58% of voters have a favorable view of him. 38% unfavorable. again, a big change from july. it shows he's able to win support from new voters along the way. more people have a better view of him. let's look at how he does on the issues. these are the most surprising numbers in the entire poll. he is leading by a wide margin on all majorish shies from the economy to illegal immigration, social issues and isis.
4:06 am
he put out an immigration policy. he's been light on the other issues. in spite of that, voters still trust him. the other "x" factor is how he was going to deal with women voters especially with the dust up with megyn kelly. we have numbers with men and women. hees doing better in terms of favoribility with women. 60% have a favorable view of him compared to 57% of men, who say the same thing of men. there is one caveat in the poll. republicans saying whether they are better off with donald trump or without trump in 2016. a whopping 58% say their chances are better off without trump, 38% with trump. >> conflicted response. thanks, sara, we'll talk more about that shortly. there are more headaches for the clinton campaign.
4:07 am
305 e-mails that the former secretary of state turned over recommended for further review. evan perez is live in washington with more. what does this mean, evan? >> alisyn, it means a long way to go for clinton to get out of this controversy. u.s. intelligence agencies are going to take a closer look at 305 documents from the e-mail server. the state department told the judge on monday, they were flagged as part of a review from five agencies. government lawyers said, quote, out of a sample of 20% of the clinton e-mails, the reviewers have recommended 305 documents, approximately 5.1% for referral to their agencies for consultation. that th comes as the fbi conducts their own investigation. that is after they raised concerns over classified information in the clinton e-mails. court filing is in response to
4:08 am
the freedom of information lawsuit. clinton said she didn't send or receive any information that was marked as classified. clinton turned over 55,000 pages of e-mails to the state department. as we mentioned, michaela, a long way before the clinton campaign can get rid of this controversy. >> that is certainly of concern in that campaign. thanks so much for that. there are a lot of people talking about vice president joe biden, whether he could give hillary clinton a run for her money. there is limited support inside the white house for a biden run in 2016. jim acosta is following that from martha's vineyard where the president is vacationing. jim? >> reporter: no doubt joe biden is the talk of the democratic party as he is taking his time to determine if he will run for president. a democratic source tells cnn even though the vice president is popular, there's little
4:09 am
enthusiasm for a biden presidency in the left wing. i'm told there are concerns at the white house that a biden candidacy could end badly, damaging his image as an elder statesman. one source saying i'm not getting a sense of a joe biden caucus inside the white house. part of the reason the white house is heavily invested in hillary clinton with several white house aids working for the former secretary of state. democratic sources inside and outside the white house say despite the controversy, clinton is the party's best hope for protecting president obama's legacy. no question, there is deep affection for the vice president at the white house. officials are giving biden all the time he needs to grieve his son's death that happened recently earlier this year and weigh his political future. it is said inside the white house that picking biden as his
4:10 am
runni runni runningmate was the best decision he made. biden's decision is expected by the end of summer. we should think of late september, not anytime soon. chris? >> a lot of considerations. can he get the team? can he get the none? it's more than endorsement. let's talk about the poll we have this morning. all the political things going on. we have political correspondent jim and erol lewis. what pops out at you, jim, in this poll with trump leading and this juxtaposition, are we better off with or without him? how do you make sense? >> he has had a month of leading in the polls. no one had that except bush a. lot of the party is concerned about that.
4:11 am
interesting to note, two-thirds of republicans in this poll are not with trump. there are so many other candidates divvying up the support. >> remember the conventional wisdom, this is all amusing, but trump has a ceiling of 20% from his ardent supporters, he won't go above that. he's gone above it. >> of course. the people writing him off are making big, big mistake. people are not supporting him because he has an easy path to the white house. it throws things off from the point of view of how to get a candidate elected. you are going to have a problem from the party brass trying to figure out why the energized voters liked the issues, liked this guy, but don't care whether or not -- >> some of the energized voters, why fight it? suddenly they have passion. why are they fighting it?
4:12 am
>> put up the number we are talking about here that shows the disconnect with the support and how they feel with and without trump so people know what we are talking about. >> they don't feel good about the open nominee. >> with trump, chances in 2016, 38%. two-thirds of respondents aren't with him, they are divided. >> it is such a big field. to me, that's the unknowness. we saw wild card candidates who shot up. they were flashes in the pan. donald trump is so good at media. he's been at it for decades. this could be different because there's a giant field that leaves everything up in the air. >> unless it's rational. some candidates take trump's issues and ride on his coat tails. that is a rational reason to support him.
4:13 am
other people will sound like trump with immigration issues. >> he says i invented immigration. he hasn't created an issue. he hasn't brought something up that wasn't out there. it's how he's doing it. the challenge for the gop is how do you capture his thunder in his rhetoric that excites the base. >> compete the base, but look at the flip side. he tapped into the immigration, but he made mitt romney's comment, self-deploration look moderate. he's talking deportation. these are tough views on immigration. they have a general election to win. >> let's look at the issues. voters and respon dadents are looking. economy, 45%. that is so far ahead. the closest number two is 9%. illegal immigration, 44%. isis, 32%, even though he hasn't
4:14 am
spelled out. sometimes he says send troops, sometimes don't send troops. social issues 19% on social issues. i mean, errol, what has he said that's resinating with people? >> that is the only per flexing issue. he knows more on the economy than anybody in this room. fine, we give him that. immigration, he brought it to market. he's pushing that agenda. i'll give him that one. issues like same-sex marriage, abortion, how you live your personal life. trump has been all over the place on all of those issues. >> here is another thing that is a case study of what trump is able to do with media. he was taking a beating with women. cnn polls, he had the brew ha ha after the debate. 60% favorable. better than he is doing with men. he then has his guy come on the show and say remember you wanted
4:15 am
proof of how i deal with women, not just with my mouth, but my wallet. here is how i have women in position of authority. go to the other candidates and chase them the way you chased me issuing a challenge. is this how he turns a weakness into a strength? >> he's proven again and again he has enough bluster and confidence. it's summer, you can get away with anything. >> other candidates are trying to define themselves as antitrump or building on something he said. jeb bush said trump gets his military advice from watching military experts on cable news. here is jeb's response to that. >> i get my military advice from a really dedicated group of young policy men and women that are serving in the campaign. so, you know, i'm not going to fall into the trap of having,
4:16 am
you know, i watch "meet the press" to get my foreign policy advice. i think it has to be more organized than that. >> a group of young policy people. >> he has enough baggage of his own to deal with in terms of military history. is that a way to make ground? >> cable news is a great source of information. look, i like that answer just because i think i identify with and understand the kind of people he's talking about. most people, if you trace back the, you know, colin powell, he was a young policy walk working at a low level in campaigns in the white house. there are a lot of people who do that. that is an accepted way in developing american leadership. what bush said was something that is not unusual for the establishment. now, it sounds horrible. >> for the establishment. >> exactly. >> this is, of course, the big question with trump. do we believe in the
4:17 am
establishment? do we believe in the way politics have been done or do you want to rip up the script and start over again? >> don't we know the answer to that? >> some people. >> right now, in your poll, what you see is another comer in the poll is ben carson. never held off before. not a politician. so, what we saw with jeb bush, that was a political answer, very polished or fairly polished. okay. it connects. that, the majority of or pluralty of the polls do not want that. >> jim pulls out a good thing. errol, you made a good point. two-thirds of those polled are not with trump. they are so split up among the rest of the candidates, that it doesn't show up that way. >> we will see what happens next week. jim, errol, great to get your insight. we will talk about this with george pataki and rick perry in
4:18 am
the 8:00 a.m. hour. stick around. a new hampshire prep school is rocked by allegations of rape. the charges coming to light with a senior raping a 15-year-old stunt. it may have been part of a disturbing sexual competition at the school, something known as senior salute. a spokesperson for st. paul says the allegations do not reflect the people that represent their student body, alumni, faculty and staff. the pink pill known as female viagra. the drug that claims to boost a woman's libido controversial. some medical experts claim the drug simply does not work. the fda denied approval for the drug twice since 2010. a scary moment on the mound for new york yankees rookie pitcher, brian mitchell taking a line drive to the face.
4:19 am
this is enduring to watch. we are happy to report after this -- ahh. mitchell is okay. he's lucky. he suffered a small nasal fracture. he was taken to the hospital for evaluation. he was later released. team doctors will monitor him for concussion symptoms. >> back in the day, i played second base. that would always rattle me when i would see the ball come in that direction. >> that's the worst part of pitching, you are completely exposed as you finish your delivery. >> she's looking at you in comprehension. >> i'm understanding this. i understand sports injury. >> we wish him well. >> alisyn was quick to say, he's okay. another explosion heard overnight hours after the bombing that killed 22 people outside a popular shrine. police now on the hunt for a suspect who they believe could be responsible. ♪

4:24 am
cnn managing editor bobby ghosh is here and phil mud. bobby, bankok nonsynonymous with terrorist attacks. what does it point to? >> the attack yesterday is out from left field for bankok. something like this on this scale has never happened. the second attack of what seems to be a grenade at another tourism target. that's interesting. that connects to two together. the nature of the attacks are different. throwing grenade is one thing. planting a pipe bomb is quite another. we will see if there's a connection between the two or if the second guy is someone who is taking advantage of a situation and it's an opportunistic thing. a terrorist target is putting a knife in bankok's heart. tourism is a $60 billion to $70 billion industry.
4:25 am
tourism just began to come back. a couple years of -- tourism is way, way down. it's just begun to come back. for this to happen now is especially damaging. >> it also speaks to, perhaps, mr. mud, an intention on the part of whoever did this to strike at those who are not from thailand. we don't have a group coming forward and claiming responsibility. what are the steps in the investigation? >> we have to think about three steps. half the information you are going to get in now is going to be bad information. you have to keep cool. there's going to be a lot of information that doesn't help further the investigation. i would expect in about the next 24 to 48 hours, the second stage that is the real investigative stage when you have solid leads to accelerate. now that this photo is out, looking at other cameras around the area, my guess is tourists
4:26 am
with cell phones might be looking at a phone did i take a photo where he appears? i would say within a day or two, we are going to talk about a named suspect. then we are off to the races. you can look at travel data, whether he's a thai citizen or not. right now, you are talking about a lot of sort of soft information because we don't know who conducted this yet. some of the information like the information that indicated there were other bombs at the sight yesterday is guaranteed to be wrong. >> they have done something in their own estimation because they isolated an individual. what if he winds up being a man content like we see in the united states? >> if it's an organization, it's a different level of terror. there are others that can do
4:27 am
damage. >> do they have terrorism in thailand? >> in the south, but it's localized. that opposition has never done this sort of thing before. they have never done what we would consider a terrorist attack. if it's an organization, there are other people out there. it's not reassuring to know people can kill 22 people and hurt others, but it reduces the level of concern for foreign tourists. we can reassure ourselves, this was one crazy guy and thailand and bankok, in general is safe. >> a lot more productive in the worst way, phil, they don't believe there are injuries. is that an indicator of anything? >> one of them is the type of
4:28 am
device. it's almost like we have the fringe of the puzzle in place and we are trying to figure out what the center of the picture looks like. we mentioned the devices. if the incident today is connected, we are not talking sophisticated devices or multiple bombers. we have one suspect in the photo. we are not talking hard targets like embassies or hotels. we are not talking a claim of responsibility. with those tiny pieces put together, you can say it doesn't look like a huge conspiracy. my guess is there aren't international linkages. with the pace, the center of this puzzle today or tomorrow, is going to clarify. i spuspect we'll have a motivation tomorrow. i want you to consider this statistic. one death every day for a month. that is the murder rate right
4:29 am

welcome back to "new day." a just released cnn/orc poll shows trump the leader with 24% of republican voters. that's almost double his nearest rival, jeb bush, with 13%. dr. ben carson in third with 9%. indonesian search crews are recovering the bodies of 54 people on the plane that crashed this weekend. helicopters will be used to transfer the remains. bad weather is preventing them from reaching the crash site t. plane's black box recorder has been retrieved, more information will be forth comings. a seattle police officer pulled over a speeding motorist

4:35 am
your city is reaching out for health and municipalities to help. why can't baltimore get it done by itself? >> it's good to be here, chris. it's not that we can't get it done by ourselves, we shouldn't. a lot of targets we have are high value targets for the federal government as well as the city police and partnerships work. we know the spike in crime we are seeing here in baltimore is happening in other cities around the country. we know, historically, when cities across the country and when our country dealt with spikes in violence, there's been a national response. that's what we need here. as president and conference of mayors, i'm going to continue to push for it. >> early on, a suspicion the spike had to do with the civil unrest, the policing situation there. do you believe that or do you believe there are plenty of reasons for things to go the wrong way? >> there are plenty of reasons for the spike in crime in baltimore.

we know that there is, just like other places around the country, there is a nonstop flow of illegal guns in our cities. we know there are many -- the availability of drugs is very high and we know that once a series of violent activity commences, there's a lot of retaliation. that same story is happening in cities across the country. i think it's important that we, as mayors, come together and look for a national solution in partnership with the government. >> the chief was making the same arguments. itis not just the freddy gray effect. drugs on the streets, there are a lot of problems. he was removed. is that a mistake? >> no, i think the commissioner, we have had many conversations and it was clear he had become a distraction. the focus was on whether or not he should be commissioner, not the crime fight. commissioner davis is focused on
4:37 am
bringing partners together so we can bring more safety to our city. the thing is, the part nership we are working on in baltimore is the same as they are working to replicate in other parts of the country. we are looking to find the model that works to target the repeat violent offenders, the ones determined to bring death and destruction to our community. >> is there an indication you have had a pullback in policing because of what happened with freddy gray and officers worry about being cited for misconduct? >> you know, i think while there was a lot of conversation about that with pundits, the numbers don't bear that out. the number of arrests in baltimore has gone up. the number of gun seizures has gone up. more drugs and guns are off the streets and more arrests in the past two to three weeks than we had the previous two to three
4:38 am
weeks have shown. i'm sure that is a statistic that you see around the country. in baltimore, we had an unrest. that didn't happen in milwaukee or chicago and they are still having the fights. while people, pundits say it was a pullback. we know the violence is a national epidemic. we are focused on those repeat violent offenders that are bringing death and destruction, not just in baltimore, but cities across the country. we are going to focus on them and work with all the partners we can pull together to get them off our streets. >> what is one area you will be able to measure over time to make a difference in the amount of crime you have? >> i think we'll definitely meet progress with the homicide rate. under my administration, we have pulled it down to the lowest it's been since the '70s. i'm not going to give up. we are focused, like mayors across the country in dealing with this surge in crime. we are not deterred.
4:39 am
we are not taking our foot off the gas. this is a battle. it's a battle we are engaged in every hour of every day. we are going to continue to focus on driving down the homicide rates. a lot of crimes that happen, you have a do over. you can, if -- you can prepare if a window is broken or a car is broken into. that can be repaired. if we lose a life on the streets of baltimore or any city in the country, you can't do that over. you can't bring that person back. this work is urgent and it's important to look for the resources to bring to the battle, to bring safety back to our communities. that's what the people in baltimore deserve and the people experiencing a spike in violence deserve. that's a word we are going to focus on. as mayor, i'm focused on that. i'm focused on bringing those mayors together that are having the same struggles and finding ways to work together better and work together with federal partners. >> captured the fascination of

so, do you see the story about amazon? they are fighting back about the report in the new york times alleging a harsh working environment. among the claim, criticism from peers crying in the bathrooms, frequently, getting low performance ratings after going through miscarriages and cancer. will this affect amazon or the future business? peter is here to discuss. we both read this and felt like hey, i have worked in places like that. not to make light of it, but you hear some of these things that are going on at amazon.
4:45 am
did it feel to you that it was different from other big corporations and companies, even industry that is you talked to? >> it was the edge. more extreme. >> more extreme? >> more than some workplaces. this is a story on netflix. >> specific to only technology? >> i have heard from other people in other industries, whether it's hedge funds. >> a law firm or emergency room, you pull long hours. it's high intensity. >> one of the things i was reading, they fired staff. this is a former amazon human resources director. sour grapes? >> i don't know about sour grapes. cut the lowest performers. you see that in other industries. what is different from amazon is they are a very big company embracing the culture you see in a smaller start up.
4:46 am
going 80 miles an hour, 24 hours aday. that slows down as you get bigger. amazon wanlts to keep it going. >> the reason it is shocking or resinating or getting across collective consciousness is because amazon is in our homes. we all use it. it's a feel good company. do you think maybe that's why it is kind of making us feel that? >> a big, beloved brand. you may not want to think what it takes to get amazon to your house. even if you don't have as intense a job as someone at amazon. you may not have to work 24 hours seven days a week, but you have to bring your phone home and be accessible. >> jay carney, the former press secretary for the white house is now with amazon. if you are a smart person, of
4:47 am
course you want to work hard. you are hearing from some inside amazon like we are at the top of our game. >> it's a great place to work and have worked. it's great optionalty. if you work there, you are set up for a future job down the line. >> what do you think about the e-mail. he sent an e-mail or memo to 180,000 amazonians, employees of amazon. i don't think any company adopting the approach portrayed could survive much less thrive in today's highly come tettive market. you are rekroouted every day by -- if you hear of these happening, get in touch with hr or e-mail me.
4:48 am
>> he's not denying it. again, you have jay carney, a former white house guy helping him. >> yeah, yeah, yeah. >> the fact he's responding is yeah, i get this is serious. they are very quiet at amazon. >> they are quiet. what do you think the net is of this? what do you think is going to happen? what is the result? >> record sales for amazon. >> you really think -- barely a blip? >> it's a little uncomfortable, but people move on. it's somewhere in the back of their heads. >> do you think any other tech company is going to take notice? >> maybe recruiters showing up saying if it's that bad, come see us. >> hey, come over here. really interesting. alisyn? >> what is your take on all of this? tweet us #newdaycnn or post your

we have got a story to tell. it is one that hits very, very close to home. there's a guy swimming off long island. gets caught in a rip current and is moments from drowning. guess who was there to save him? this guy. chris and his family have their boat anchored off shelter island when the swimmer was swept right past their boat. this guy went in after him, pulled him to safety. we're told by a witness that said if chris wasn't there, the man intern man certainly would have drowned. here's my issue. i asked you how your weekend is and you didn't say a word. >> the weird part is my wife threw me in after. in truth i was leaving it alone because i didn't want to reveal the guy. it was fast-moving water. a lot of boaters were anchored and he went for a swim.
4:54 am
as he came by us i said how are you doing? he said i'm not doing well. we swam across. >> was christina freaking out? >> no. she was okay. and also we were so far away so fast that i didn't think there was really any time to think about it. i didn't want to embarrass him. >> that's nice of you. but what's the lesson here for everyone watching? >> the lesson is don't jump in fast-moving water and think before you do something like that. i didn't think the guy was going to make it. he didn't look good. >> thank goodness you were there. >> i hope that he's well and i hope people don't chase down his name. i'm only talking about it because somebody called and put it in the paper and it want me. i would have embellished more. it was ten people and a shark bit me in the leg and i punched him in the face. >> all right.

. a vicious and cruel attack designed to create kacarnage. >> investigators working to identify this man. >> trump leading the republican pack. >> i will build a great, great wall. >> donald trump's eight-page plan is absolute gibberish. >> republican control wasting no time targeting funding for planned parenthood. >> i simply will not provide the money to fund planned parenthood. >> this is "new day" with chris cuomo, alisyn camerota and michaela pereira. . >> out of bangkok, another blast overnight, this time at a peer, this after a bomb set outside a shrine killed 22 people, hurt over 100. >> this morning police are on the hunt for a suspect spotted on surveillance footage. look at your screen right now. this was near the blast site as new video surfaces of the first blast. what's th off in bangkok. this surveillance video shows water shooting into the air. the bomb exploding on the peer only a few miles away from monday night's bomb that ripped through central bangkok. thai officials are on the hunt for this man believed to be connected to that bombing at the shrine. the suspect seen here in this surveillance video putting a backpack underneath a bench and then walking away. newly released cell phone video captures the chaotic scene during rush hour on monday. unsuspecting tourists and locals walk along a popular footbridge before the explosion below. >> i see like bodies everywhere and cars on fire. >> reporter: people waiting in traffic captured the bomb going off right in front of them. smoke and embers filled the air. surveillance video capturing the deadly blast lighting up the night sky. >> i saw about five different ambulances screaming away from the scene. there were hundreds of medics, police, fire brigade. >> reporter: the bomb claiming more than 20 lives and injuring over 100. local police believe this was a
5:02 am
deliberate act of terror, targeting a hindu shrine. >> it tells me that this group wants to hit at the economy. this can do a lot of damage. >> reporter: thai officials telling the state run news agency they did receive a warning of possible attacks, but no specifics. and michaela, a touching scene just a few minutes ago down there at that bomb site. thais arriving with arm fulls of red roses and handing out single red roses to other thais who have come to share their sorrow and grieve for their lost fellows. also, chinese died in this attack, malaysians, hong kongers who were targeted, authorities say. indeed, a dark, dark day for thailand. and no clear motive as to what was behind that horrific attack.
5:03 am
>> nice to hear moments of light coming in such tremendous sadness. thank you for that. back at home in politics, donald trump topping the polls again, apparently getting stronger, in fact. numbers show he's made some big gains since last month, now commanding 24% of the republican vote. that's not the only surprise in these numbers. sarah murray from washington with more surprises for us. >> reporter: like you point out, donald trump with really strong support, one in four republican voters backing him. let's take another look at those top line numbers. jeb bush losing a little from july but still doing better in our poll than the fox news poll you saw yesterday. and yet another vote for the sort of antiestablishment wing. let's take a look at the all important unfavorable, favorable numbers for donald trump. this was an area he was struggling in before. he was seen a big gain, an
5:04 am
eight-point jump from july. 58 see him faif rvorably. now you can see there he is leading in every major issue, 45% think he'd be the best on the economy. 44% on illegal immigration. they even rank him on the top for social issues and on dealing with isis, pretty remarkable for a guy who has put out relatively few policy specifics. he's also a guy who's flip-flopped a lot on the social issues. now, the other big question for trump is how he would fare with women especially after that spat with megyn kelly of fox news and his previous comments. our poll shows that women actually view him more favorably than men. 60% of women had a favorable
5:05 am
view of trump compared to just 57% of men. when you look at how he impacts the gop's chances in 2016, 58% a say they would be better off without trump. >> i think that probably reflects the fact that two-third of the field isn't with trump. but they're just so split up among all these other candidates, it's tough to see any other source of strength other than trump. stay with us and let's bring in cnn political director. i was stealing a point you made earlier on, that you still have a lot of voters, david, who aren't with donald trump in that field. what is the challenge for the gop? they're not going to scare trump out of the race. he doesn't seem to want to go anywhere. how do they include him? >> now the challenge for the remaining competitors not named trump is to do nothing to offend
5:06 am
the trump supporters. if indeed the vote share that is split up among the other 16 starts consolidating behind one person, so there's a one on one with trump at the end of the day, that person wants to be able to woo some of those trump voters to his or her side as well. that's the challenge, don't offend trump supporters and try to be that last man standing in that one on one fight. >> that's a complicated threading of the needle. people said just a few weeks ago that donald trump had a ceiling of 20, that this was all sort of a novelty. he's now exceeding that ceiling. in july he was at 18%. now a month later he is at 24%. what else jumps out at you besides donald trump's sort of meteoric rise? >> reporter: i think we keep underestimating where the ceiling is, as you pointed out.
5:07 am
the interest thing is where donald trump is drawing support. he's getting a lot of support from working class americans, from folk who is don't have a college degree, which is pretty remarkable this guy is a billionaire in the race and has somehow managed to cast himself as a populist in the field. the base of the republican party is very white, very southern, it's based in the midwest. they need to talk to these voters to win the republican nomination. and somehow donald trump is doing that better than others in the field. >> how much of donald trump is a rejection of jeb bush? when we look at these numbers, he was seen as a favorite, the name, the pedigree. now he is really favorable, you know, look at his numbers. how do you explain it? >> i do think, chris, that jeb
5:08 am
bush's unfavorable is going up. that's among everyone there. but even among republicans his unfavorable numbers went up. quite a bit from july to now. and i think part of that is the debate, the donald trump factor of dominating all and jeb bush sort of looking a little timid or not willing to sort of take the fight to him, that there's been sort of a depression of support overall. i don't think, though, that the trump support is necessarily a rejection of jeb. i think the trump support is a rejection of the establishment overall. in fact, scott walker today is going to be giving a speech talking about his plan to repeal and replace obamacare. one thing he's going to say is we were promised that a republican senate would get a bill to repeal obamacare on his desk. and that hasn't happened. he's taking on mitch mcconnell, again, tapping into this notion
5:09 am
that anything establishment and washington needs to be rejected. >> let's talk about how women feel about donald trump. the numbers are stunning. he has favorability among women of 60%. >> reporter: women are not some mythical creature that wants a total different thing than men do. women say the same thing that the men do. they like he's really blunt. they think he's honest with them. i think the other thing though is they don't think this spat with megyn kelly is that big of a deal. they don't look at it and think it did real damage with him among women. and they don't believe that just because of that exchange that all of a sudden donald trump as president would be worse to women than men. >> it wound up, you could argue, being optically worse for her. and then he comes out with this
5:10 am
proof of performance thing that he shows look what i hire as women, look what i pay them . and he's challenging the rest of the field to do it and nobody's really answering. the question is can it sustain? >> we'll ask rick perry about that shortly. >> the other interesting thing is that people felt he didn't do well at the debate. he didn't get high marks at that debate, but yet his numbers keep going up. >> everyone felt that rubio did great and his numbers have not moved up the way that donald trump's did. we do have joining us live from the iowa state fair republican presidential candidate, former governor, three-term of new york george e pataki. i hope you are safe from any type of lightning situation.
5:11 am
you okay? >> well, there is lightning out here at the iowa state fair. i'm under a tent. and hey, some of the experts say it wouldn't be a bad thing if my campaign got struck by lightning. i'm not so sure that they're right but we are looking to break into the top tier. >> when you look at these numbers and why trump is in front and how it's communicating into the different echelons of issues, everywhere you look he is being strong. what is it you need to take to him to get up into the upper echelon as you suggest? >> it's very simple. americans are fed up with washington. they think it's an inside game, a rigged game. it doesn't matter which party is in control, it seems that government grows bigger, more intrusive, for powerful. and they're right. it's not just trump. if you look at the top three,
5:12 am
trump, carson, another person who's never held political office, ted cruz who is always looking to shut down the government or filibuster against the insiders. so it is this reaction to an inside game. and i totally share that frustration, because it is an inside game. and we have to take back washington from the powerful, from the interests from the lobbyists and give it back to the people. >> you beat my father mario cuomo who is a big name guy in new york state. you showed you can take on a big guy and when. you did three terms. what are you telling yourself about why you're not breaking out of this pack? >> there is so much attention being paid to one candidate as we hear constantly in the news. the other is it's early in the process. the angry candidate, the one looking to divide, is the one getting attention right now. what i want to do is bring
5:13 am
people together. you were talking about how the senate can't even send a bill to repeal obamacare. we're going to have to bring people together, work across party lines, get democrats to support republican efforts to repeal obamacare and put in place a better alternative. that doesn't resonate in a 30-second sound bite. ultimately i think people want grown up government, they want people to bring people together and solve america's problems. i'm very hopeful that they're going to say, okay, we've had enough theater, enough fun. and who can actually bring people together? and that's pataki. >> how long will you keep it up? >> i'm going to whole way here. i'm out in iowa. i'm looking forward to the caucuses next february. i intend to be in this the whole way. you know, chris, when i ran
5:14 am
first time for governor, as you well know, people didn't give me much of a chance. but you stay with it, you believe in yourself and your ability to lead. you believe in the people's desire to have government that works. that's me. i'm in it to win it. >> i know my mother is going to get very mad right now because i'm going to talk about how you beat my pop. you had a dominant social issue, which was the death penalty. you had economic slowdown. it was a little bit of a combination of the dynamics that you have today. what do you think that major social is to attach yourself to and what is your angle to addressing the fatigue? >> the americans don't see that the economic recovery is affecting their lives. we have to have stronger job growth and less government. to grow the private sector you have to shrink the public
5:15 am
sector. the emotional issue is isis and radical islam and the threat they pose not just to new york but to america. we saw the consequences of thinking that because it's overseas we're safe. we're not safe. and i am the one out there saying we have to shut down isis recruiting here in america, encouraging americans to jihad against fellow americans. we have got to destroy their training center, recruitment hubs over there before they have a chance to attack us here. the american people understand the importance of these issues. i just have to continue to make the case and fight. >> trump is putting out plans. he put out his proof of perfo performance in terms of how he hires women and pays them. it's different with government. they get paid by level so it's different. it's so much a merit-based pay. but your campaign will produce those numbers for us, i'm sure. what do you think about his immigration plan? do you think he can build a wall and have mexico pay for it?
5:16 am
do you think he can beat isis by taking their oil? what do you think of his ideas? >> chris, these are all simplistic sound bites that sound wonderful. mexico is not going to pay to build the wall. yes, we have to secure the border but we're not going to send millions and millions of people rounding people up, putting them on buses and sending them back somewhere. it doesn't take away from the fact they have over 10,000 people with western passports training to attack us and the west. we have got to attack and destroy them there. >> what about going after employers of those who take illegal aliens, undocumented immigrants, whatever you want to call them and put them to work because they want to cut their costs? would you go after them? >> i think you have to uphold the law. and if it's illegal to employ someone who is not allow to be
5:17 am
here, then you have to go after them. i have heard that every four years. everybody says we're going to go after the employers. nothing happens. you're going to go into every kitchen in america, arrest the owner, deport the people in the kitchen. it's not practical. it's not going to work. ultimately i think the person people are going to say, what's going to work? what's actually going to make america better? what's going to make my career more secure and my community safer? that's going to be the policies that pataki is advocating and can achieve in washington. >> governor pataki, good luck to you there. appreciate it. >> thank you, chris. great being on with you again. appreciate it. >> thank you sir. we're going to talk more about the presidential race with gop candidate rick perry. reminder, cnn will host the next

trenches. look at the thighs on this guy. look at the flexibility. look how quick he is. look at this guy. he's not really a football player. he's actually a professional dancer dancer. look at that step. >> wait for it. >> turn around, show us what you got. bing bing bing bing. >> you know, the postshow meeting is going to take on a whole new moment with this one. >> it is. >> as chris tries to recreate some of these. >> how many places will my suit rip? we've seen this hidden camera video from planned parenthood, spurring faif sta rs to act to cut off funding. is that actually going to work? if you have moderate to severe
5:20 am
plaque psoriasis. isn't it time to let the real you shine through? introducing otezla, apremilast. otezla is not an injection, or a cream. it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differently. some people who took otezla saw 75% clearer skin after 4 months. and otezla's prescribing information has no requirement for routine lab monitoring. don't take otezla if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. otezla may increase the risk of depression. tell your doctor if you have a history of depression or suicidal thoughts, or if these feelings develop. some people taking otezla reported weight loss. your doctor should monitor your weight and may stop treatment. side effects may include diarrhea, nausea, upper respiratory tract infection, and headache. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take, and if you're pregnant or planning to be. ask your doctor about otezla today. otezla. show more of you. so you think this chip is nothing to worry about? well at safelite we know sooner or later,

the government. how do they go around congress? >> not all the money from women's health comes from the federal government. the federal government can decide who gets and who doesn't get the federal money. and the federal government has decided not to cut off planned parenthood. but some of the money comes directly from the states, and the state can decide who gets state money and these states are cutting off planned parenthood. >> so this is going to work? >> yes. and it has worked in states like texas. they cut off money for planned parenthood and a lot of women lost health care as a result. >> these videos purport to show planned parenthood engaged in illegal activity, such as negotiating the sale of fetal tissue. now, planned parenthood is legally allowed to transfer fetal tissue for research
5:25 am
purposes. but they do appear to catch some of the directors of medical services, even doctors, doing some form of negotiating. is it illegal what they're doing? >> it's very hard to tell because the videos have been edited and from people who have a clear idealogical agenda. what's illegal is to profit from the sale of the fetal tissue. it is not illegal to sell them to cover planned parenthood's costs. that's a subtle difference. how do you define the costs? and the answer so far has been no one has established that planned parenthood has done anything unlawful. >> even in the pieces there are excerpts that do not appear to be edited. that's the best we can say. we watch what appear full swaths of the video that don't appear to have any cuts. what you hear is the director of medical services negotiating. what they say is their costs of
5:26 am
the handling of the fetal tissue is somewhere between $30 and $100. and you hear the actor posing as a buyer saying, well, i'd like to pay you on the upper end of that to get the best. and you hear the doctors saying things like, that would work. why not a flat fee? wouldn't it make sense if they charged everybody $50 so they wouldn't get themselves in trouble? >> what everybody finds to troubling about all of this is the whole notion of fetal research itself, of aborted fetuses being used for research. now, in fact, that has been a long standing and political very popular program. fetal tissue research has proven two extremely successful in medical research. >> and if it were not used, it
5:27 am
would be discarded. >> exactly. when confronted with the gritty details of the transactions, it's distasteful. that is not the same thing as being illegal. and how you compute planned parenthood's costs in getting the tissue to the buyers is not a simple thing. and the fact that some negotiation was involved is going to be pretty much inevitable. >> we should make it clear that just this week hhs says they have looked into this and investigated it and found no wrongdoing on the part of planned parenthood. >> nor has any state nailed planned parenthood with actual wrongdoing even. it's just the atmosphere surrounding it because of those videos is really poisoned. >> what's your take? you can tweet us and facebook.

5:32 am
a hot off the presses, cnn nationwide poll shows donald trump solidifying his position as front runner with 24% support. what does that mean for the candidates struggling towards the back of the pack? joining us is three-term governor of texas and candidate for president rick perry. it's interesting to take a snapshot of where voters are today, as we just did. it's interesting to compare and contrast that with a snapshot taken exactly four years ago. this was august 24th-25th, 2001. here you can see that you had 27% of the vote. back then you were at the top of the heap. you were in the trump position. today, you're at 2%, towards the
5:33 am
back of the pack. what do you think is going wrong? >> well, you look back at 2007, i think it's instructive as well. and rudy giuliani was leading the pack. what's important to keep in mind is that the early stage strategy is the wise strategy, spending the time in iowa, spending the time in new hampshire, certainly in south carolina. if you have done your work there, if you've created the infrastructure in those early states, not only will the money flow in for you to finish up the evident, b effort, but you'll do quite well. you hit the nail on the head when you said this is a snapshot. these are very fluid races and it's a long time to the primaries. >> it sure is. there's another troubling poll. if you just look at the iowa caucus goers, this is troubling for your campaign because you
5:34 am
are the person picked by caucus goers in terms of which gop candidate do they believe will drop it first? and you are number one at 40% of caucus goers there. the thinking is you are running out of money. is that true? >> well, the fact is we've always had this early stage strategy. we can keep a pretty small footprint from the standpoint of dollars going out. so we had a good fund-raising week last week and we'll go forward with that. i'm quite comfortable that being able to operate in iowa and new hampshire and south carolina we can do on a fairly small budget relative to maybe some of these other campaigns. this isn't about who's going to have the most money to buy the presidency. this is about who's got the best ideas and the record. and whether it's the job creation record or wearing the uniform of the country or whether it's knowing how to
5:35 am
secure the border of this country with mexico. that's what people really care about. >> of course. but you do have to pay your campaign staff at some point. have you been able to pay your campaign staff? >> have i been able to? >> currently. >> no. but we've got a lot of young people that are volunteering for us. and i greatly appreciate their commitment to the cause. as the dollars come in we' ewe' appropriately take care of those that are working with us on the paid status. >> politico that did that poll about the caucus goers describe you as having a great record in office, having a superb message, having the best retail political game on the ground. so is there something wrong with the system that a guy like you who, again, is described as checking all of these boxes
5:36 am
isn't getting more traction this year? >> well, i try to remind people that this is a marathon and not a sprint. so we're taking a lot of snapshots at this particular point in time. so you're correct in all of those. nobody on the debate stage has the record of job creation, no one's got the 14 years of being the chief executive of the 12th largest economy in the world. americans have to ask themselves, as iowans are just starting to focus on this, a major major entity in texas that's about the size of candidate and australia, are we going to take a chance on another young and inexperienced senator like barack obama who's got our country off track i think economically and policy wise as well. >> we've been asking all of the candidates about their record on
5:37 am
equity pay, men versus women in terms of gender and how many women they have working for them. at first blush, governor, you win, because in terms of women on your staff -- correct me if i'm wrong -- your chief of staff a woman, your deputy chief of staff a woman, head of scheduling, i could go on. yet you vetoed the texas equal pay bill. don't women deserve equal pay? >> well, women get equal pay. i mean that's the point. this was a piece of legislation that basically duplicated what's at the federal level. in the state of texas we think it's kind of wise not to have too many laws on the books. i told them early on in that process, listen, this was a symbolic piece of legislation. we don't need symbol iic piecesf legislation jumbling up our
5:38 am
code. let's look at the record. there are over a million women that have jobs in the state of texas while i was the governor of the state. people know that our commitment is to the people of the state of texas. women have the opportunity to excel. when you look at the record, the first latina that was on the supreme court, i appointed the first latina to be the secretary of state of texas. the record is unparalleled from the standpoint of supporting women in the state of texas. and it will be that way as the president of the united states. what people really care about is give me the opportunity to succeed, i'll take care of it after that. >> do you pay all the women on your staff the same as their male counterparts? >> i would suggest to you when you're the chief of staff you make more money than the governor. >> is that right? >> yes. indeed. >> why is that? >> well, that's just the way the system was set up.
5:39 am
the governorship of the state of texas was limited to a certain amount of money. and i wanted to go get the best and the brightest. and you need to pay the best and the upright ebrightest. it makes sense. that's the way the real world works and government needs to be more like the real world. that's one of the reasons i want to go to washington, d.c. >> what's your plan now that you are the back of the pack? how are you going to spring forward? >> you look at mike huckabee back in '08. or rick santorum in '12. in 2011 i parachuted into this pretty late, as a matter of fact real late. i sprang to the top and didn't have the sustainability. you must come spend the time here. this is a long process in iowa.
5:40 am
you come, you talk, you listen and you build that foundation over a period of time. we've still got six months of work. people are just now starting to focus on this. and the people of iowa, new hampshire and south carolina in particular, they want someone with a record of success to get this country back on track, somebody that will secure the border with mexico. i know how to do that. i dealt with it for the last 14 years. that's what people are looking for this this country. >> maybe that's what they're looking for. there's also this big wave of antiestablishment fervor. where do you think donald trump is going wrong? what do you think -- where it that your record and your experience trumps what donald trump has to offer? >> i don't know about donald trump. i can only talk to you about myself. i've been a washington outsider my entire life.
5:41 am
i've been fighting washington for the last 14 years. we sued them over 20 times as the governor of the state of texas. if there is an anti-washington person with a record of being anti-washington -- i looked president obama in the eye and said, mr. president, if you don't secure the border, texas will. we deployed our national guard, our texas recon teams to go literally in the river in some cases to help make our state more secure because the federal government's absolute failure. now, i don't know how you can be any more anti-washington than that. i know how to secure the border. i know how to create jobs, because i've got a record of doing it in the 12th largest economy in the world. >> we look forward to watching you and hearing more about all this at cnn's debate on september 16th.

45 years after his trial, charles manson, the master mind behind seven ruthless murders in los angeles continues to captivate. in a new cnn special report airing tonight sara sidner looks back at manson and those gruesome crimes that shocked the world. >> they found no evidence of robbery, no suggestion of motive. >> it sent this wave of panic through los angeles and through the hollywood community. if they could get to a movie star shs star, to a coffee heir es.

5:53 am
>> false leads and missed opportunities. sara sidner is here with us in studio. you also say there were several missteps during the course of the investigation. >> yeah. you had these two different crime scenes right. and the police at the beginning at two different investigations going on even though there were so many similarities, things written on the wall in blood, and they didn't put them together. people who were outside of policing did. there was a real frustration on the part of the families. >> i can't even image the agony of that, to have lived through that scenario. you also did a fair amount of digging into the background of manson. >> he lived a very difficult life. before he was arrested for these crimes, he lived in jail most of his life. he even said he was more comfortable behind bars.
5:54 am
you can imagine how that made families feel, especially when the supreme court said, okay, the death penalty is not going happen in this case because they put a stay on those cases during the time. it was really, really difficult on the families. but he led a very strange life as a child. his mother clearly didn't want him and that seemed to affect him throughout his life. >> you're going to see more tonight on the "face of evil" 9:00 p.m. eastern. you see sarah and are not the same person. >> you're both easy on the eyes. it's great to have you here. so the power of reporting, great work from one of cnn's own becomes the good stuff. we'll tell you how. that's will ripley. he's good looking too. i'm new ensure active high protein. i help you recharge with nutritious energy
