3:00 am
>> we'll be back early tomorrow. 4:00 a.m. eastern time. we'll bring you up to date overing that happens. >> we sure will. see you all then. "fox & friends" starts right now. >> bye. if we could come out of iowa with a nice victory, it's important. if the doctor says it doesn't matter, get up and caucus. get up and caucus. >> get up and caucus tomorrow night. the storm is not coming until after midnight. if you stand up for me tomorrow night, i will stand up and fight for you. >> i will unite this party and the conservative movement. i'm f i'm our nominee -- if i'm our nominee, i'm going to win. >> the energy is with our campaign. >> why me? i have a proven record y. me? i'm a proven leader. why me? whenever there was a problem, i didn't cut and run. >> you're not going to walk out confused about what i think.
3:01 am
those guys on the stage thursday night, they're trying to confuse you. you asked me a a question, i gave a direct answer. >> i want to ask everyone here to vote for me ten times. stand with us. caucus for us. if we stand together, we will win. >> live from des moines, iowa, in the heart of downtown des moines, the capital city of iowa and the heart of midtown manhattan, this is "fox & friends," a special edition because after all the speech-ifying and talking and baby kissing and all the rubber chicken dinners, today the people of iowa, tonight at 7:00 central time, will caucus. >> absolutely. and we find brian -- you are pulling overtime coming in yesterday. got on plane, and now you are in des moin des moines at the crossrods of the election.
3:02 am
>> reporter: yes. we saw five candidates try to close the deal. this is the number-one newspaper in america now. it is "the des moines register." everyone wants to know what they have to say and what the inside story is on all the candidates. what's at stake? a victory. momentum. you've got delegates, sure. but for the most part, for some of these campaigns, there might not be a tomorrow. and for others, if you come in third or fourth, maybe for marco rubio, you might be saying that is like a win. and for donald trump and senator cruz, whoever doesn't win will feel like a loss. so there's a lot at stake. and this hour, governor terry branstad is going to be here from iowa. carly fiorina will be joining us. greta van susteren on a political panel. and you'll see where -- we'll find out what it is like. i couldn't believe, guys, how many people i went up to last night who said they have not decided what to do yet.
3:03 am
>> that's right. still shopping around. >> they are. absolutely. i was talking to my cousin, angie. she's a nurse in iowa. and she's one of the people who she's heard all the speeches, she's still shopping around. her friends have started to make their decision. i'll tell you what, rich edson is joining us from waterloo, iowa, a bit away from the city of des moines. he looks at the final day of campaigning before tonight, rich, 12 hours from now they start to caucus. >> reporter: that's right. undecided and unpredictability. that's why candidates are hoping that iowa's history of surprises continues tonight. two who are hoping that's not the case -- those who are leading in the republican polls, donald trump and senator ted cruz. and as a result of that, donald trump in the western part of the state yesterday at a couple of rallies continued focusing on cruz. >> he was born in canada. a lot of people saying he can't
3:04 am
even run for the election. we'll find out. to me, that's a big problem. i see so much dishonesty in politics, jerry. >> we're not finding donald trump's troops on the ground. they don't have an organization that is perceptible. >> reporter: on the democratic side, it's former secretary of state hillary clinton leading in the polls. bernie sanders right on her heels in that one. the sanders folks hoping for a late surge here in iowa. they have a commanding lead in many of the new hampshire polls, and they're hoping that momentum, if they win here and win new hampshire, will take them deep into the nominating process. this is a state, the caucusing begins this evening. and of course, we might find out a winner tonight, or we might not. four years ago, it was mitt romney who was declared the winner. then a few days later, we figured out what it was rick santorum who had barely won. we could get a surprise tonight or in a couple of weeks. who knows. back to you. >> rich, thank you very much. that is -- was great to have the feather in his cap for rick santorum. but you missed out on the momentum mitt romney gained. >> absolutely.
3:05 am
one factor the candidates didn't see coming, a giant blizzard that could have an effect on turnout. >> that's right. our meteorologist is tracking the storm for us. what is this going to hit, maria? >> well, we're expecting some of the worst conditions into the overnight hours tonight. but i would not rule out a couple of rain or snow showers. a little bit earlier than had been predicted. i'll show you that computer model run in a second. first, i want to share the temperatures with you. they're going to be quite cold across some areas, especially northern iowa where they're going to be ranging from the teens into the 20s. southern parts of the state, suddenly temperatures will be above what's normal for this time of the year. that is welcome news. here comes our storm system. it's going to be battering early today parts of the rockies, then it quickly moves eastward. take a look at what happens by 9:00 p.m. central time. some of the green popping up on the map is some rain. and maybe even if it's cold enough, we could see snow showers. again, the worst of the conditions as we head into overnight tonight and into your tuesday. >> okay. so it should be clear driving to the hawkeye cauceye, but late
3:06 am
some trouble? >> yeah. and we can't forget about people readying their homes, animals, crops, and going to get groceries, too. >> absolutely. brian, as we go into the caucuses tonight starting at 7:00 central time, let's take a look at the polls. these were released by the "des moines register" of likely republican voters and caucus-goers tonight. it's not surprising the top three, we've gone over the last week, hasn't changed. donald trump, five points over ted cruz. and marco rubio, eight points behind ted cruz. >> and brian, this was done -- >> reporter: no doubt about it. i just want to say looking at the poll, this is what i found. i mean, if they are true to what they're saying, if the numbers are strong, it's amazing how the camps are beginning to spin it their direction. for example, governor christie says i'm going to be the number-one governor. with rubio, i just want to finish strong. with trump, i got to win this, but i don't have to win this thing. for ted cruz, he kind of boxed
3:07 am
himself in. he's got to win this thing. and last night, he almost sounded evangelical, but the one thing is that i think must be driving the candidate nuts is so many people seem to be willing and open to being persuaded to doing something else which is kind of what frank lutz found out. >> shift will cause you to flip from one to another? >> over the last three days, i've gone from trump. then we watched the debate where he didn't show up. i was a huge cruz supporter. i'd seen him in person. after megyn kelly showed him that video of his bill and amendment, and he brought it to 38 words and kept going back and forth, i didn't see him as honest anymore. now i'm with marco rubio. >> you went to three candidates in the last 48 hours? >> yep. >> there's a word for. that what it is -- >> it's not flip-flopping. >> there's a word for that. how likely are you to stay with marco rubio? >> 100%. i was able to see him in person last weekend and ask a direct question about ply family and
3:08 am
their security -- my family and their security and the way he answered with my 10-year-old with me made me solidify him as my candidate. >> i know some you like trump. you're nodding your head. >> yeah. i switched to trump. as a small business owner, i think he gives me the best opportunity to better my business and leave a legacy for my family. >> people still shopping around. what's interesting, though, apparently in iowa late last night, the republican chairman of the party out there sent a memo to all 1,682 precincts and said, you know, something's going on. we need more supplies. he said on a normal day or two before the caucuses, we might get four or five calls. we're getting 100 an hour. going -- go out and get more paper, more ballots, all this stuff you need. the weather's going to cooperate. so it looks like the people of iowa, they've been listening so long to the robo calls and seeing the commercials, they want to do something about who's going to be the next president tonight starting -- >> right. circle the wagons and start printing more of those voter
3:09 am
registration cards, too. a lot of these individuals who are supporting particularly trump and bernie sanders are first-time caucusgoers. if there is a record turnout or a large turnout, a lot of pundits are saying it will sway in their favor. >> reporter: the exact numbers, guys, basically 120 is good. 155 is great, and 155 and over with -- which congressman king talked about last night, a rock star here, goes to donald trump's category. in the big picture, you have the cruz people who know who you are and if you need a ride to get to the caucus. and the donald trump people who know roughly who you are, and you've got to get there on your own because he's going to be moving to new hampshire. we'll see what the strategy is that works. >> listen, i talked to a great political analyst, my wife, last night. she said, i don't know, i think there's going to be some surprise tonight. so it's going to be an exciting day. thanks for joining us on this first day of february. and joining us with headlines
3:10 am
now, heather. >> hi, steve, hi, anna. good morning you to and to brian in iowa, as well. listen to this one coming in from overseas. iran awarding victory medals to their navy sailors who captured and humiliated our american sailors. secretary of state john kerry had originally thanked the iranians for their cooperation and the release but later said on "fox & friends" that the images that came out later infuriated him. listen. >> it was very, very unfortunate, inappropriate, and -- as a former sailor, a member of the military, i was infuriated by it and expressed that -- expressed that directly to my counterpart. >> the medals are one of the highest military honors that the military can receive. back at home, two virginia tech students have been charged in a sickening crime. the death of a 13-year-old girl. 18-year-old david eisenhower faces murder charges,
3:11 am
19-year-old natalie keepers faces charges of disposing of the body. 13-year-old nicole lovell went missing last wednesday. her body was recovered in north carolina on saturday. police aren't saying a lot now but do say that lavelle knew eisenhower, and he used that to his advantage in that little girl's murder. a shame. minnesota governor mark dayton rushed to the hospital overnight after collapsing during an event honoring political volunteers. a spokesman says the democrat was feeling pain and pressure in his lower back shortly before losing consciousness. it was a fainting spell. they say it was most likely caused by dehydration. doctors are keeping the 69-year-old in the hospital as a precaution. his team saying he's in good spirits. and the broncos and panthers arrived in the bay area for super bowl 50. take a look at that. if the panthers went straight to the field, they might not have felt very welcome. that's because the ground crew forgot to paint the end zone. aw. the broncos' logo was painted in
3:12 am
the visitor end zone instead of the home side. the panthers and the broncos face off on sunday at levi stadium. kickoff is 6:30 p.m. eastern time, and those are your headlines. one to watch right there. >> yeah. >> i was thinking about the candy bar commercial where the guy is painting the field and forgets a letter. oh, man, i'm going to have to be here a while. coming up, we'll be making super bowl dishes with your daughter, aren't we? >> that's right. we have the easier super bowl recipe you could possibly have. it's two things -- velveeta and a can of stuff. >> yum. >> it's delicious. >> velveeta cheese products, so good. >> best cheese food. 12 minutes after the hour. coming up, talk about divine intervention. a man gets pinned under a tree, and who comes to the rescue? a nun. >> that is awesome. and hillary clinton says don't worry about that it pesky e-mail scandal of hers. it's those darn republicans' fault. >> this is very much like benghazi. republicans are going to continue to use it, beat up on me. i understand that. that's the way they are.
3:13 am
>> okay. so that's a tactic she's using. will that impact the voters to vote for her in iowa? we break it down with a fair and balanced debate coming up live from iowa and new york city. ♪ can't afford to let heartburn get in the way? try nexium 24hr, now the #1 selling brand for frequent heartburn. get complete protection with the new leader in frequent heartburn. that's nexium level protection. bounty is two times more absorbent. more "sit" per roll. so one roll of bounty can last longer than those bargain brands. so you get more "life" per roll. bounty. the long-lasting quicker picker upper.

let's just get it out, see what it is, and let the american people draw theiron c-- their on conclusions. there is very much like benghazi. people will use it, continue to beat up on me. i understand it. that's the way they are. after 1 hours of testimony -- 11 hours of testimony, answering many questions which i had in p it's clear they're grasping at straws. >> hillary clinton continuing to compare the investigation into her e-mail server stwiegz titua benghazi where four americans died. how will it affect the caucuses in iowa? here for a fair debate, democratic strategist and president of solidarity strategies, chuck roca. he joins us today from des moines. republican political consultant and ceo of go big media, phillip stuts. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> phillip, let's start with you. is it just like benghazi? what are you darn republicans doing to her? >> i love that it's the republicans' fault when the fbi is leaking like crazy. when the bernie sanders campaign is in iowa throwing this around
3:18 am
everywhere. frankly, steve, this is a playbook that the clintons have used forever and ever and ever. they've conducted a poll in iowa. they know it plays well with liberal iowa caucus-goers. they're out shooting this out everywhere they can in iowa because it's going to help her. listen, she's down big in new hampshire now. if she doesn't win iowa, this could snowball. she's got to win iowa. that's where the buck is going stop for that campaign. that's why they're doing everything they are now. >> chuck, the problem for your side today is hillary clinton on caucus day talking about an fbi investigation and not why they should caucus for her. why she's the most honest and trustworthy person. i've been running campaigns for 24 years. in iowa this morning, we're talking about emails when she should be talking about her message and talking about getting folks out tonight on a cold night in iowa to go caucus. the one thing about hillary clinton, there's not a lot of people in the middle. you either really like her or you don't like her. here we are talking about it on caucus morning. she's trying to make the case of getting folk out. i don't think this plays as much in this caucus here in iowa, but
3:19 am
it's going to play in primary states around the country if it continues to be a dialogue. they should be concentrating on getting people out to caucus and not talking about emails. >> she was way ahead in iowa. now's neck and neck. it's possible a socialist could upset her tonight. what's the message for her regarding this particular e-mail situation in your sflrds. >> -- in your regards? >> if she can't move away from it, that's a winning strategy tonight going into iowa. >> chuck, i'll give you the final word. >> i think that it's going to be an interesting one. i think bernie sanders has surged. there are people sick and tired of being sick and tired and are looking at who will help most in iowa. i think it will determine the race going forward. >> tomorrow at this time, we'll know what weather on did the win -- know who did the winning. we'll talk about that, as well. thank you very much for joining us live today. >> thank you. thank you both.
3:20 am
coming up on this monday, it's no secret, democrats typically win the african-american vote historically. our next guest says there is one republican who could be on the verge of changing all of that. and it's the iowa caucus explained via legos. look at those legos. >> this is considered not viable -- d a lot of doubts going in. i was a smoker. hands down, it was, that's who i was. after one week of chantix, i knew i could quit. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix definitely helped reduce my urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you have these,
3:21 am
stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side-affect is nausea. life as a non-smoker is a whole lot of fun. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. the flame is out... ugh...today the flame is out, tomorrow my attitude... your mother... antonio. antonio. que? the stove. it's not working. campbell's microwaveable soups. made for real, real life.

3:23 am
hey, everybody. how you doing? quick business headlines. bp is expected to announce a stunning 70% collapse in profits. last quarter earnings were about $730 million. compare that to $2.2 billion just a year earlier. the company is feeling the effects of lower oil prices and continued fallout from the 2010
3:24 am
oil spill. and some yahoo! employees are scared they could lose their jobs. reports say that the ceo, marisa meyer, will be firing 20% of the work force, 20%. this after a companywide meeting last month where meyer said no one would get fired that week. meanwhile, voting in the 2016 election gets underway in about 13 hours from now. in the form of the caucuses in iowa. not only is it the start of the voting, it's also the start of black history month. today is february 1st. >> welcome to february. for years, african-americans have overwhelmingly supported democratic candidates for president. is there a republican candidate this year that could cut into that support? >> here to weigh in is the editor and publisher of the conservative black chick blog and author of the book called "con job: how democrats gave us crime, sanctuary cities, abortion profiteering and racial division division," crystal wright. good morning. >> good morning.
3:25 am
>> i understand you're not confident that the republicans would win a majority of the black vote, but there is one republican candidate who you think the african-americans can identify with. >> it's donald trump. you know, many people probably don't like me saying that. donald trump is actually the only personbothi ining -- perso bothering to talk to black people about the vote. she has a black spokesperson, katrina pearson. in his immigration plan he talks about how deporting illegals will create black unemployment and black jobs, not pander to black lives matter. he's the only one really talking to black voters in my opinion on the republican side. >> and earlier, last year he tried to court about 100 african-american evangelical pastors. it didn't end the way he wanted it to. however, he has been quite outspoken about the scars and lack of diversity. i guess he has that going for him. on the other side of the aisle, let's talk democrats. you have a theory that they are essentially buying the
3:26 am
african-american vote. what do you mean? >> i think it's so sad whether it comes to the black vote. blacks have shown a slavish support for the democrat party for over 50 years. part of me wonders if the republican party should even bother asking for the black vote because black americans seem to like being political dummies. there's -- you know, we're the only race that has voted lock, stock, and barrel for the same party for over 50 years. so you know, it's really on lockdown. you know what, people -- hillary clinton is already owning the black vote. and i think she's owning it because, oh, she was married to the first black president. i mean, that's all democrats have to do. it's a sad state of affairs for blacks when all they have to do is pander an insult to black americans day in and day out. it's like we've given up on ourselves economically by voting for democrats. >> i understand you told one of our producers when we were talking about the segment yesterday, blacks don't care about policies.
3:27 am
if they don't care about policies, what -- what does that mean? >> black americans only care about policies mildly if a black conservative runs. that's the kiss of death. if a black conservative runs, a black candidate like carson, herman cane, you can kiss the black vote good-bye in my opinion. automatically blacks will call you an uncle tom, dismiss you outright. they might scrutinize your policies a little bit. but isn't it funny, steve, that when a black liberal runs like barack obama, they say, okay, we'll vote for you. we'll be dumb, stupid. we're going to keep voting for you even though our lives are worse under the first black president. >> just because there's a "d" after their night. >> right. and the race card, steve. i can be a black liberal, and black voters won't question my policies. isn't that that anesthetic? can't we do better -- pathetic? can't we do better? >> check out "the con job: he democrats gave us crime,
3:28 am
sanctuary, cities, abortion profiteering, and racial division." thank you very much. coming up, what does it take to make brian kilmeade look good on tv? he takes us behind the scenes in iowa. right, brian? >> reporter: that is a lovely question. what it takes. we're searching it, a team of scientists working on that. i went to four campaigns last night. that's the peaceful waterfall. the question, what about the other campaigns? i've enlisted and agreed to pay this man, tucker carlson, to make his way through security. go ahead, open up the velvet rope. go ahead. he's security cleared. someone patted him down this morning. tucker carlson in a matter of moments inside the campaigns. a look like nobody else. something the "des moines register" doesn't have the guts, doesn't have the guts to deliver. i hope but something last night.

3:33 am
check it out. if we want to take the above camera. there are flow secrets. so if you -- there are no secrets. so if you want to know how they prepare, what type of robe they wear, this is the type of thing that brings fox together. >> yeah, how many sets are there, brian? >> reporter: we've got about two. i'll take you for a tour around. in fact, let's do testimony tucker, where were you last night? >> i was with trump in omaha. >> reporter: an hour away, right? >> two hours. really interesting. trump people are worried -- he's the front-runner, of course, up by five points in the "des moines register" poll. they're worried people are going to vote, so they're telling voters this is secret, nobody will know who you vote for. >> reporter: wow. to give you an idea what goes on -- we have the stage. you can look at the stage. that's what it looks like from the other side. out this door is about four or five fox reporters, local, national, serving our affiliates. now here, tucker, as we walk
3:34 am
down this panel, this is the ramp, right? the. >> this is the ramp. >> reporter: right. you're saying that the trump people are concerned that people are going to say i don't want to vote for him, but in the republicans, they got the secret ballot unlike the democrats. >> reporter: they do. but there's a public aspect to the republican caucus where basically you watch your neighbors make a case for various candidates. and they want to remind their voters that in the end, nobody knows who you vote for. >> reporter: right. you want to talk about honesty in iowa, this is the first thing that stood out. first when i got in out of the trip, i was hungry. i came here. i wanted to get to the snack bar. you talk about honesti, this is a total honesty policy. so if you want popcorn, you want -- you want a nestle crunch bar, you want to get the new issue of "oprah" magazine, for a change she's on the cover, you got to go here and just on -- go over to the cover. the number-one chef in the area, chef boy-r-dee. this is a look at the embassy suites and trust that republicans bring. in the big picture, i think
3:35 am
people of iowa want us to go. they've had it. >> that's not true. they've doubled the prices in every restaurant. it's $1,200 a day for car service. they want us to stay forever. >> reporter: let me tell you, they don't want any more calls, no mailers -- >> no, they don't. >> reporter: they don't want to be harassed. >> no. they don't. the service industry wants us to stay forever. they want the iowa caucuses to extend into 2017. best food, nices people. states with bad weather have nicer people than states with good weather. that's my theory. >> bar graphs, number. you can't make stuff up like that. >> of course i can. i'm an expert. i have a master's. i can say whatever i want. >> reporter: if you look at the agenda on the board, it is nonstop fox stuff except for one party -- jeb bush watch party. i'm not saying things are tight, but it says "cash bar." >> we interviewed a voter two days ago, i said, jeb bush, what's the first thing that comes to mind? he said, "bless his soul." >> tucker carlson, we'll check in with you later. steve and anna, back to you.
3:36 am
>> all right. thank you very much, brian. brian, by the way, tucker was talking about the food out there. tucker, i understand through one of my sources on the ground in iowa you went to a steakhouse, tucker carlson, last night. and everybody ordered great, big steaks the size of their heads except you who ordered a salad. >> hey, you don't have an i.p., true or false? true or false. answer the question, sir. did you go to a steak house last night, and did you order a huge steak, you and your party? >> no. i got a salad in preparation for this hit in my run this morning. i had steak the night before. you don't want to eat steak when you wake up early. >> co-host on the weekend, too. he doesn't eat vegetables, i can attest. when he says he had a salad, he had a wedge salad with blue cheese dressing all over it. i knew it. >> you had a wedge sal mad? >> how do you know what i had for dinner? this is making me uncomfortable. how would you know that?
3:37 am

>> and our brian kyl immediate landed in iowa yesterday. what did you find out, brian? >> well, what i found out is that there was a lot going on. i could not stay the whole thing for anything. sometimes i caught people in the beginning, sometimes in the end. here's my look at as many candidates as i possibly could see.
3:52 am
♪ >> whoo! on the ground in iowa. finally. candidates everywhere. my goal is to see as many as i can on stage in action, and see what their supporters are like. all right, here we go. we're on the road, and we've got to try and see as many events as possible. first stop, rick santorum. he's having, i think a house party. a private party. i have no idea what to expect. after all, last time around, four years ago, he won this thing. break out that sweater vest. i think he might be talking. remember, he won this thing last time. what do you get out of this situation? hat do you get out of a major event or a big arena? >> the one-on-one questions, just the personality.
3:53 am
seeing what they're like. >> i'm an undecided voter. so i'm trying to take a look around and see which candidates i like the most. >> how many votes you think you got here tonight? >> most of them. >> the idea of the big rallies and the big events, and the celebrity status that donald trump brings has really altered the landscape here. and the question is, how will that be reflected at the caucus. >> so that was my first caucus house party. that was great. small, intimate affair. so rick santorum's moved on, so we should, too. next stop, bernie sanders. i think i'm at the right place. bernie sanders. not even his bus. and look at the size of this line. are you for bernie? >> yes. >> so you decided? >> yes. >> will you >> yes. >> how does a 74-year-old attract so many young supporters? >> well, i mean, a lot of it is the free college thing. >> caucus just a few hours away. if he's worried about turnout,
3:54 am
one thing is for sure they've turned out today. for us we got a busy night still ahead. up to see chris christie. >> what are you looking for? >> i like a president with a backbone to be honest and i think christie has that. >> i don't have my mind made up yet. >> so chris christie has a chance of winning? >> sure absolutely. >> do you know what you're going to say? >> i have an idea. but you know me. you've dealt with me long enough. listen, i'm not rubio. i don't work off a proposed script. >> governor chris christie of new jersey. >> why a pub? why is that the perfect place? >> because i get much better looking and more charming he people are drinking, brian. >> we have one more stop to make. it's ted cruz. he's having a rally. got to leave the bar. here we are at the fairground. this is the side of ted cruz's late night show. a lot of people say you've got a ton of great candidates. why ted? >> because he's pro-life.
3:55 am
he's pro-marriage and he's so constitutionallist. >> and you are? >> patty howard. >> where are you from? >> marion, illinois. >> why would you be here from illinois? >> i'm excited about ted cruz and i wanted to make sure that my nieces and nephews go to the caucus tomorrow. >> for cruz it's win it all or it's going to come out like a log. and the other big question is how many people here are from iowa and how many will actually caucus? >> is that true, brian? people are tourists just to see the spectacle? >> no doubt about it. and i think also i think that ted cruz needs the help and you know this better than most, so do you, steve and anna, these people are coming in from other places getting crazy. but they're not able to vote. they're not eligible. so i had texas, virginia, boston, just in ted cruz's place. and a lot of undecideds. those are the things that stuck out. >> they're from all over. >> this rally yesterday in omaha, i would say half the people i talked to are from nebraska. >> i did have a first-time experience.
3:56 am
my first experience with a selfie stick and i think the governor of new jersey really embraced it. there you go. >> doesn't he look thrilled? >> are they selling selfie sticks on the street like its times square or some tourist attraction, brian? >> there's quite a few. and i think that's now going to be a collector's item. >> i thought that was a great report, brian, that you went around from spot to spot. but what got me was you arrived on a private jet. last time i went to iowa it was on a greyhound bus! >> on the way home i'm stopping directly in dallas on the route to laguardia. we just had to get there quickly so that was kind of cool. thanks to the company for allowing that. >> look how jealous tucker is. >> i fly commercial through chicago. >> i expect you guys -- >> we've got a whole lot more coming up. remember when hillary clinton tried to explain her e-mail scandal like this? >> it would be like somebody in the department of transportation

4:03 am
hold a rally in waterloo, iowa. trump has been talking an awful lot about senator ted cruz over the last couple of days. it is he and cruz who are running first and second in the latest polling here in iowa. and with that, the two have been focusing their attacks on one another. >> he was born in canada and a lot of people are saying he can't even be running for the election. so we'll find out about that. to me that's a big problem. i see so much dishonesty in politics. >> we're not finding donald trump's troops on the ground. they don't have an organization that is per september ill. it's interesting. there are a lot of candidates who spent more time in iowa than i have. we've spent a ton of time in iowa, a ton of time in new hampshire, in south carolina. a ton of time all throughout the southern states, the super tuesday, s.e.c. primary. a ton of time in nevada. we are running a national campaign. the strength of our campaign is the grassroots, though. >> trump skeptics have been asking whether these trump event
4:04 am
goers will become caucusgoers. we ran into a number of them last evening in western iowa at a trump event and they say they will. >> i plan on caucusing for mr. trump because i feel what he says. he's a doer, and he's going to fix this country. and we need to fix this country. >> strong man. he's different than everybody else. like i said he's very open. >> i think that those people that have heard trump will be out there in numbers. i really do. >> just because trump and cruz are leading in the polls, iowa caucus history dictates we could have someone else at the top when this is all over and it might not happen tonight. you might find out in a couple of weeks. that's what happened, of course, last time when we all thought mitt romney had won and in fact it was rick santorum. for the democrats over to peter doocy. >> and, rich, if you're just to read the text of hillary clinton's final pitch to iowa
4:05 am
voters and nobody told you who said it, you'd probably think it was from bernie sanders. she is now using a lot of the same language that has made sanders very popular here in iowa, specifically about wall street reform. now with just hours to go until the caucuses. >> we can't let the big banks ever hurt the economy again. i went to wall street long before this became an issue and told them that they were going to be hurting us unless they changed what they were doing. we are not letting companies get away with doing that, especially ones that we have helped to be able to stay in business in the first place. >> clinton and her supporters are also attacking sanders, and that got sanders upset. he's now accusing clinton allies of spreading inaccuracies about his plans, especially regarding women's rights and health care. and sanders is casting these caucuses as a chance for iowans to change the entire course of the race by making him the winner.
4:06 am
>> not only will the entire country be looking at iowa, actually much of the world will be looking at iowa. and what they will be looking at, it's not just to see who wins the caucus. what they will really be looking at is to see whether or not iowa is prepared to move this country away from establishment politics. >> so, how excited are democrats in des moines for the caucuses? well, martin o'malley is going to have an event at this coffee shop 8:30 a.m. local time, and when we pulled up at 5:00, it was completely packed, the parking lot was full, and nobody inside can even begin to take the first winner of 2016 until 7:00 tonight. back to you in new york. >> all right, peter. >> the wind certainly is at bernie sanders' back, too. he just had 1700 people at a rally last night. and his campaign is saying they just raised $20 million in january alone. small donations, average $27
4:07 am
apiece. >> brian and tucker let's talk a little bit more about hillary clinton. you know, this is the big caucus day and she's got a problem because she's answering questions about the e-mail server. many say it was an illegal situation, she got hacked, all sorts of stuff like that. back in march she said, you know, first of all, none of the stuff on my server was secret. now we know that many, many secrets were on it. now she's trying to spin it this way. when she got it, when she sent it, it wasn't classified at the time. and, in fact, yesterday she was talking to who-tv in des moines and explained it this way, how after the fact they classified it. >> the best explanation i heard of this, i heard yesterday in des moines from a man i was shaking hands with. he said, this is like you drive through the same intersection for four years, and the speed limit is 35. then you move out of town, and they change the speed limit to 25, and then they start sending tickets to people who drove while the speed limit was 35 or
4:08 am
over. but the problem with this metaphor is not the metaphor itself necessarily, it's the timing. she said it was yesterday. but here she is three weeks ago saying she heard the same thing. >> what? >> -- would be like somebody in the department of transportation setting speed limits, let's say the speed limit was 35. and then retro actively the police say well you know what, that speed limit should have been 25. so, let's go back and look at anybody who drove down that road and exceeded 25. >> okay so tucker, maybe she heard it yesterday. and then again she heard it three weeks ago exactly the same way. >> doesn't matter when she heard it. it's untrue factually. everyone in washington knows and it is a fact that information is never retro actively classified. this is not true. ask anybody in the intel community. she's doing this not because she believes it or any of us believe it but because her donors are really, really worried that the
4:09 am
wheels are coming off. she's losing to a 74-year-old socialist. if she's going to go down the e-mail scandal her money will dry up. that's the audience. >> let's look at the surface. ed henry realized he heard this story before, was able to talk about it last night, and now here's another example of can she ever fully tell the truth? this is why her trust levels are underwater. i talked to someone yesterday, but yet three weeks ago you had the same story, the same story being repeated to you and it seemed like yesterday? do you need ginkgo biloba to remember who told you what. do you have a problem with three weeks and 24 hours? it makes people say why would you make up a metaphor, use an analogy, if it's inaccurate. especially when the sign on bernie sanders bus, "trust." he knows where to go. if sanders wants to win, he'll use this tape and he'll say listen, you going to vote for that? that's what you're going to get. >> we need to point out, a lot of politicians in washington, d.c. use private e-mail
4:10 am
accounts, but she's the only one we know of, tucker, who actually bought her own machine for her own server. but ultimately, the big question is, do voters really care? >> if voters begin to understand that highly classified information was obtained by our enemies, foreign intelligence services, which is the operating assumption of everyone in the u.s. government, that's a big deal. we're at war and the chinese or the russians or whomever are reading her e-mails, that's a big deal. >> in the age of edward snowden and wikileaks, we have yet to see proof that things have gone out. if that comes full circle it's a brand-new game. >> all right, guys. and if there's 22 e-mails so top secret that they can never see the light of day. >> ever. >> and she continues to say that this is partisan politics, well it's the state department that's under the white house that's run by a democrat. so how does that argument even square? >> it's kind of a mess. all right we're going to be talking more about this and caucus day on this, the 1st day
4:11 am
of february throughout the morning here on fox. you need headlines to start your day. >> good morning to all of you. hope you're off to a great monday. got some news coming in from overseas. iran awarding victory medals to their navy commanders who played a role in capturing and humiliating american sailors. secretary of state john kerry originally thanked the iranians for their cooperation and the release, but later said on "fox & friends" that those images that we saw infuriated them. listen. >> it was very, very unfortunate, inappropriate, and as a former sailor, member of the military, infuriated by it and i expressed that -- i expressed that very directly to my counterpart. >> well the medals are considered one of the highest military honors that members of that military can receive. back here at home, two virginia tech students charged in a sickening crime. the death of a girl who was just 13 years old. 18-year-old david eisenhauer now faces murder 19-year-old natalie keepers

4:13 am
so what shattered this window? >> i want to know. and we've been talking about the caucuses all morning long. actually for two years. so how do they actually work? we're going to break it down so you can understand. as our live caucus coverage from des moines continues right after this. the flu virus. it's a really big deal. and with fever, aches, and chills, mom knows it needs a big solution: an antiviral. don't kid around with the flu, call your doctor within the first 48 hours of symptoms and ask about prescription tamiflu. attack the flu virus at its source with tamiflu, an antiviral that helps stop it from spreading in the body. tamiflu in liquid form is fda approved to treat the flu in people two weeks of age and older whose flu symptoms started within the last two days. before taking tamiflu tell your doctor if you're pregnant, nursing, have serious health conditions, or take other medicines. if you develop an allergic reaction, a severe rash,

or signs of unusual behavior, stop taking tamiflu and call your doctor immediately. children and adolescents in particular may be at an increased risk of seizures, confusion, or abnormal behavior. the most common side effects are mild to moderate nausea and vomiting. anti-flu? go antiviral with tamiflu.

2004, and won the nomination. and a governor named jimmy carter in 1976. walter mondale in 1984 and al gore in 2000 all won the caucus and the nomination. so it's since 1976 iowa got it wrong only twice with tom harkin and dick gephardt winning. >> okay. and then on the republican side, how good of an indication is winning iowa? >> it's different. on the republican side iowa has predicted it right only twice. bob dole in 1996, and george w. bush in 2000. usually winning iowa is not predictive in terms of the republican nomination. >> okay. >> so we hear donald trump saying listen, i'm ahead there. i'm ahead in new hampshire. i'm ahead in south carolina based on this iowa win, i may be able to run the table for the next three. going forward. >> that's what he's hoping for, of course. >> so the quirky thing that is iowa caucus, it's done differently on the republican and democratic side. >> it is. and we have to keep in mind,
4:19 am
it's a primary. it's not a general election. it's run by the parties. so the democrats run it like this. voters break into groups to declare support for a candidate. candidates have to receive 15% of the total vote. supporters of candidates who don't meet that number can either join a number group or choose not to participate at all. in the state 44 delegates are at stake. now, republicans caucus differently. supporters of each candidate give a brief speech. voters mark ballots, secret ballots, which are counted and communicated to the state party by a new app. 30 delegates are at stake there and the delegates are awarded proportionally based on the statewide vote. and the statewide vote based on some predictions could be really big. the only thing that could bring it down is the potential blizzard moving in through iowa later today. >> and all the democratic campaigns and republican campaigns will have representatives there, and will be able to make an argument. and on the republican side yes it's done on a secret ballot.
4:20 am
you can still be influenced by your neighbors, can't you? >> big time. shaming factor is big. peer pressure is big. and the ability to communicate and convince and persuade up close like we are minutes before you vote. no electioneering in any other state. but today, in iowa, electioneering, personally close, up front and personal. >> deciding at the witching hour and it could be more important. the debate going on at the actual caucus site than all the ads and all the rallies and all the television interviews. peter johnson jr. thank you so much for clearing that up for us. here's what's coming up on the program, now that we know how the caucus works, who's going to get the votes? that's the big question mark this morning in all the undecided voters. where are they going to go? our political panel has their predictions coming up next. and a little girl gets scared by a big shadow?

welcome back to des moines. the latest polls show 35% of the state's voters could still be persuaded to change their vote on caucus day and what impact will the undecided voters have on the overall results? got a great panel here to weigh in. senior writer david is here wide left. zeke miller is in the middle, political reporter, also a political reporter with the -- with "time." and jason noble is over here, this is his beat, "des moines register." joycen with you, in terms of the
4:25 am
undecided, i'm stunned how many are still undecided. >> kind of a long tradition in the caucuses of going in, even to caucus night with an open mind, and kind of wanting to be persuaded by the candidate speeches and the things that you hear in the precinct. >> and of course, more choice on the republicans, right? >> absolutely. >> so -- >> and not necessarily talking about undecided but persuadable. maybe going in with a favorite. >> persuadable by the way they got up and the way they caucus? >> absolutely. it's really on the democratic side you're talking about people voting with their feet, going to different corners of the room. and they're going to he is identify, you know. they might shift allegiances. particularly when you're talking about martin o'malley voters. >> martin o'malley voters? because you know they're not going to have the 15% in order to keep their vote. so they're going to be going one way or another. >> certainly in a lot of caucuses or in other cases you're going to see hillary clinton and bernie sanders supporters trying to keep martin o'malley alive in order to prevent the other candidate from getting an extra delegate in that precinct.
4:26 am
so there's a lot that has to happen on the republican side -- on the democratic side, that doesn't take place on the republican side. >> but traditionally, if you're undecided at this late in an election, you may not even participate. frankly, a significant portion of people who said they're undecided may not participate. now, if you're down to two candidates, a lot of republicans are still choosing between trump and cruz. cruz and rubio. they've got it narrowed down. they're more likely. but if you're still undecided completely, you may not even show up. >> wow, that's a very interesting take. because we're talking about over 200,000 for democrats and over 150,000 would be a great showing for republicans. let's talk about the possibility of an upset. if he pulls this off, this would be one of the biggest upsets ever. >> i think that's right. that statement from him was part of kind of the expectation setting game here. if he sets this up to be a historic victory for him, that kind of takes the pressure off the win and makes the victory seem bigger. >> don't you think it would be a big upset?
4:27 am
>> absolutely you're talking about a democratic candidate -- >> he was trumped by 40 points -- >> and also hillary clinton has been the presumptive front-runner for almost eight years. to knock her off would be a big deal. >> now we have to win. the expectations have changed in the last week. or in the last two weeks, i'd say he closed the polls. everyone thought he had momentum. now if hillary wins, it's big for her. it's bigger if he loses now. >> quick on the right. i thought rubio played this brilliantly. he never said he was going to win. he could come in third and say listen, no big deal. but whoever loses between trump and cruz will feel like a loser. >> i think that's right. yeah, you know, there's the things are three tickets out of iowa. rubio is playing hard to be that third ticket. who loses in that one-on-one between trump and cruz, that's very damaging. >> is the rubio surge real? >> it absolutely is when you look at it on the ground, certainly in the polling we've seen some bumps. but also what we saw in the last with the des moines register
4:28 am
poll over the weekend isn't much the campaign from the super pacs are seeing an even higher bump for him in the polls. almost 20% in some of those internal private polling. so he's one of those people to look out and expect to see a strong finish. >> can rubio get to 20%? i think that's the number, that's a big number. if he comes out of iowa in third place with 20% that's a big ticket. if he's at 15 and stays 10 to 15 points behind cruz and trump i think that's a tougher sell for him. >> right. >> and i know trump said yesterday for the first time i can remember, i don't have to win iowa, but it would be really hard to stop me if i do win iowa. >> right. more and moerks expectations there. >> right. guys, great job. it's going to be exciting and we're going to get some answers maybe as soon as 9:00 eastern time as they start voting at 7:00. meanwhile, so for jason, zeke and david, great job. straight ahead when we come back i'll take you behind the scenes, including a stop at the breakfast bar without peer in iowa and can someone please get me a coffee. >> i got you right here. you're all good.

4:33 am
day! >> how about that. how many times have you been back? you keep getting a fresh plate, mister. >> no, this is the first time. because when we get up -- doing the morning show, we get up before anybody else even knows how to cut up the fruit. so, again, hard boiled eggs. these are our choices. as we sit here and talk about the political process, everybody is talking over breakfast. joni ernst was up early. a lot of people -- by the way, what is this? do you know what this is? >> that's gravy. >> this is just gravy? >> you've never seen gravy? >> no, not in the morning. >> what kind of a sheltered life have you had? you've never been to a buffet. you've never had gravy. what else. >> when we got up in the morning growing up my mom used to give us power bars and told us to get off to school. >> the caucuses aren't all about eating. but there will be potentially some decisions made today that change from one candidate to another over some eggs, or over a cocktail later.
4:34 am
>> yeah. so, let's do that. tucker, let's take a seat. >> all right. >> and let's talk a little bit about the democratic side. bernie sanders. i've never seen anything like what i saw yesterday. i never saw so many young people. >> thanks for sharing. >> i've never seen so many young people get excited about an older man who does not have the rock star status of barack obama. am i right, guys? he did not have the charisma rating. he didn't have the john mccain record of the senate of weighing in on all major issues. he's devoid of senatorial accomplishments. >> he would be mayor of burlington, actually when i lived there. a hillary person said the other day if we are losing to an elderly socialist with your hair we're in deep, deep trouble. i'm not attacking bernie sanders at all. but it's a sign of weakness that this is even a race. are you kidding? >> hillary clinton controls the democratic party. her husband was bill clinton the most popular democrat still living. what is this about? it's about the fact that she's
4:35 am
much weaker than we thought she was. >> i forgot utensils. >> can you hold this thing? >> no. >> i'm going to demonstrate that right now. >> yeah, still on the democratic side i mean, you think about voter turnout having a huge impact. and bernie sanders actually mentioned that to his big crowd yesterday. he said i really need you young people to get out and vote. let's defy all the pundits. >> of course one of the problems last time was there was a miscalculation on the part of the republican party in iowa, and they said mitt romney was the winner and it was actually a few weeks later determined that it was rick santorum. i know tucker can't hear me so he'll just have to read my lips. microsoft is giving free technology and a new app so that there are no snafus. so as soon as they're done where everybody casts their secret ballot on the republican side and stands in the corner on the democrat side the precinct captains go ahead and enter into an app the information, send it to the party headquarters, and what's different is in the past
4:36 am
they've used just their touch tone phone. press nine. the number of such and such. there was a possibility of human error. that's not going to be a problem this time. microsoft promises. >> yeah but you still have to plug your information in to the app, and it's a human who's plugging in the information. so it can still be argued. >> talking about amazing -- talking about the execution from the fire house, the bar, getting to microsoft and converting it. bill hemmer thinks we could have the answer by 10:00 eastern time about where this thing is going to come. which could be flat-out amazing. look at the state of this state. >> right. or 9:00 p.m. eastern. a little over 3 million people in the state caucuses are much harder to historically take a long time to figure out what the answer is. we didn't find out that santorum was the winner last time until the next day as you remember. and it hurt his momentum like many would argue. it's amazing we're going to know probably by 9:00 if there's a clear winner. >> on both sides.
4:37 am
>> on both sides. >> that's going to be interesting. i don't know how they're going to do that, there's going to be persuadables, captains, the elimination of the o'malley camp. >> what you're going to hear is screams of despair from washington if bernie sanders or donald trump wins because you're going to see the parties remade. and i'm not endorsing that obviously one way or the other but it's a huge deal. this is a political revolution potentially. >> that is why the buffet is so good and embassy sweets is so packed. and that's yeah wefr one's watching here at home. tucker let's get eating. >> all right. >> back to you. >> thanks for not sharing. we had dunkin' donuts. >> all right. 23 minutes before the top of the hour. heather joins us with the very latest on zika. >> yes. good morning to all of you. well, genetically modified mosquitos could be to blame for the zika virus outbreak. the mosquitos were engineered by a british biotech firm and released in brazil back in 2012 to help stop the spread of dengue 2350e6r.

well isis is doing what isis does. they're making more threats against the west. the terror group releasing a new video saying what's coming next would make september 11th and paris look like child's play. as iowans get ready to vote, many wonder which candidate is best suited to take on terrorism, and joining us right now is somebody who knows. virginia delegate, former navy s.e.a.l. and iraq war vet scott taylor joins us today from richmond, virginia. good morning, scott. >> good morning, steve. >> what do you make of this latest isis threat where they say that they will attack britain so hard it will turn children's hair white because of its horrific nature? >> now despite the propaganda and rhetoric it's a serious threat. we have to look at it, what it is. you know those folks have infiltrated europe in many different ways and europe, as opposed to america, of course, they have the ability to smuggle things in there. so you know, i think that there
4:45 am
are people out there that are looking for potential bombs or nuclear material that could be smuggled up through there. it's a legitimate threat even though it's sensational. >> in addition to that, they also vowed to hit spain, as well. and the weird part about this is, out of revenge for having spain crushed muslim rule more than 500 years ago. so this is an outfit that carries a grudge. >> well there's no doubt about it. you see this group, and other extremist groups like that. they're trying to get back to glory days, if you will, of islam and of course islam was thriving in southern spain. but they were beat back and then they were beat back in the battle in france and they use this as a rallying cry as well as religion to galvanize their group. >> i know you did a poll in your congressional district and the number one issue was national security, and who is going to keep us safe ultimately. the night of our debate on thursday night, there was a google trends poll asked people
4:46 am
across the world who they thought would be the best leader to defeat isis, and 30% way at the bottom you can see marco rubio. 23% at the bottom you can see it's ted cruz. 16%, say it's donald trump. how do you feel about those top three candidates? >> well i think it's a great question, steve. i'm now running for congress in the second district because my congressman is not seeking re-election. national security is the biggest issue and i'm hearing that that's the biggest issue around the country. i think it's extremely important. let me first thank god we have rough and tough and smart men and women out there who are fighting for us around the clock while we sleep at night. but they need leaders. and we need leaders. and i think the american people intuitively want a leader who understands that they will risk themselves or the political careers for us. and what i'll say about the top three i'm hearing good elements out of all of them but we need a leader who understands the isis propaganda, and that's the new threat that they make on us because of technology. but also, american grand
4:47 am
strategy that they understand when america retreats that we create vacuums. we're not talking about nation building or anything like that we're talking about understanding foreign policy and how forward we need to go and america's leadership in the world. i'm hearing good things out of rubio out of that. strong leadership out of trump, out of cruz. it's going to be interesting to see what happens tonight. >> absolutely will be. and we'll have all the coverage here on fox news channel. scott, one of the things is, the reason isis has been so insidious is because of social media. you know, with your smartphone they're going to be using a smartphone app tonight to figure out you know, who the winner is. if you use smartphones for a million different things, diabolical in the case of isis and al qaeda and the other groups that are trying to kill us, and they're so good at targeting disenfranchised people who are looking for something and they pull them over to their side and what do we have from our state department? we've got some bureaucrats in foggy bottom and they're sending out some things on instagram and that's going to solve all the problems. right? >> absolutely. it's pretty ridiculous when you
4:48 am
think about it. look the same technology that created justin bieber, if you will, is available to those folks as well, too. we want to see a leader who needs to get a handle of encountering a narrative online. they're able to use social media to find the needles in the haystacks that may one, already agree with them, or two be easily manipulated to do bad things. in america we have toout lone w. you have to have a leader who understands technology. who understands how we counter a narrative to deal with this problem that's emerged and happening, and is a threat right now. i mean you have law enforcement in our country training about dealing with suicide vests and suicide bombers and stuff like that. this is the new reality and we need a leader who understands that, that gives confidence to the american people and to those out there fighting the fight every day. >> the people of iowa are going to start caucusing 12 hours and 123 minutes from height now. all right scott taylor thank you very much for joining us today from virginia. >> always a pleasure. thank you. >> all right. meanwhile, just hours before

caucuses start in iowa nearly half of all republicans in that state admit they could be persuaded to change their vote to somebody else. >> so you went to three different candidates in the last 48 hours? >> yep. >> there's a word for that. i don't know what it is. >> it's not flip-flopping. >> she's just trying to go candidate shopping. what that could mean for the candidates today as we continue conference live from des moines and new york city. in new york state, we believe tomorrow starts today. all across the state the economy is growing, with creative new business incentives, and the lowest taxes in decades, attracting the talent and companies of tomorrow. like in the hudson valley, with world class biotech. and on long island, where great universities are creating next generation technologies. let us help grow your company's tomorrow, today

4:53 am
now people are going to start gathering all across the state of iowa to caucus. as you look at the very latest "des moines register" poll, it looks like 10% about is undecided. only 10%. but just under a half of all of the people on the republican side could be persuaded to change their notes. >> yeah, in fact we saw some of that happening before our very eyes last night on the kelly file with a franklins poll group. let's look. >> what caused you to shift? what caused you to flip from one to another? >> over the last three days i've really gone from trump, then we watched the debate where he didn't show up and i was a huge cruz supporter. i've seen him in person. and then after megyn kelly showed him that video of his bill, and amendment, and he brought it down to 38 words, you know, and kept going back and forth with that i just didn't see him as honest anymore so now i'm with marco rubio. >> so you went to three different candidates in the last 48 hours? >> yep. >> there's a word for that. i don't know what it is. >> it's not flip-flopping.
4:54 am
>> but there's a word for that. and how likely are you to stay with marco rubio? >> 100%. i was actually able to see him in person last weekend and asked him a direct question about my family and their security and the way he answered it with my 10-year-old with me it made me really solidify why i would choose him as a candidate. >> i know some of you here like trump so you're nodding your head. >> i switched to trump as a small business owner, i think he gives me the best chance to better my business and leave a legacy for my family. >> all right. tucker and brian, so people are still shopping around. >> and some of them make up their minds at the caucus site, which is amazing. i got to say, though, we've always heard that the more time you spend in iowa the better you do. some of the candidates who spent the most time in iowa are at the bottom of the pack. chris dodd you'll remember moved to iowa and didn't even rate. it's -- i think we need to rethink our assumptions. >> governor huckabee said if donald trump wins iowa it remakes the rules on how -- >> sure. >> here's the other thing. cruz has drilled down on the homes and people who need rides
4:55 am
to caucus. donald trump has no idea who needs a ride. he's talking generally to his huge crowds saying you better do this. even if you have 104 degree temperature, bottom line is we leave here, dynasty politics possibly over with jeb and hillary struggling at the very least despite spending a lot of money. >> totally, 100%. and you're really going to have a difference between cruz and rubio are going to be locking horns along with trump for the rest of the way as long as they're in there. >> i read this morning an item in the hill talking about ground game and it actually said don't underestimate donald trump's ground game, because he has hired a number of good leaders who have done this before without a doubt the best infrastructure goes to ted cruz. he's got a county chairperson in each of the 99 counties. they've got 12,000 volunteers. they make 2,000 door knocks a day and 20,000 phone calls a day. as well. so, ted cruz has that number advantage. but then again, the trump people are very, very motivated. >> they've got the twitter advantage, too. in the way the technology is
4:56 am
changing, becoming more accessible and twitter is evolving. we actually had the governor of iowa am coulding on next hour. we'll ask him about ground game and how important it still is. >> that's right. also coming up top of the hour, brian and tucker are about to get some company. bret baier is going to join them live at our world headquarters for des moines as our caucus coverage continues from the capital city of iowa. when you have a digital notebook to capture investing ideas that instantly gives you stock prices, earnings, and dividends... an equity summary score that consolidates the stock ratings of top analysts into a single score... and $7.95 online u.s. equity trades, lower than td ameritrade, schwab, and e-trade, you realize the smartest investing idea isn't just what you invest in, but who you invest with. ♪

night, i will stand up and fight for you. >> i will unite this party and the conservative movement. if i'm our nominee we're going to win. >> i think the excitement and the energy is our campaign. >> so why me? because i have a proven record. why me? because i'm a leader. why me? whenever there was a problem i didn't cut and run. >> you're not going to walk out here confused about what i say. those guys who were standing on the stage on thursday night they're trying to confuse you. when you ask me a question i give you a direct answer. >> i want to ask everyone here to vote for me ten times. stand with us, caucus for us. if we stand together we will win. >> all right we're standing to the today from new york city and des moines as well. we've got brian and tucker and bret there. good morning to all. >> good morning. >> bet you've been here all week long. >> i have. >> from the debate on. >> that's right. i went back to washington for one day and then came back in. >> okay. >> exciting. we're finally here.
5:01 am
and this is great. >> it is great. >> just look at this. the front page of the des moines register. caucus, finally going to vote. instead of just polls. and they're very excited here. >> and the thing that must be so agonizing is that they know that there's so many persuadables, so many undecideds, if they do just sleep in one day, if they don't perform well on stage that could be the difference because you're talking about 120,000 people. >> yeah. it's all about turnout, getting out the vote. and you know, i think that these republican leaders are saying that they expect on the gop side it to be a really big turnout. they're not afraid of the weather. they think the weather is going to come at midnight or later. so, you know, it could be historic on the gop side. >> absolutely. >> here in des moines i keep running in to democrats, prominent ones i know from washington who have flown in, asked by the hillary campaign at the last minute to help get out the vote. is that a sign of panic? >> yeah. i think they look at those bernie sanders events andist amazing. i went to one the other day,
5:02 am
3,000 people, and -- >> last night 1700. >> and it's excitement. and then i went to a hillary clinton event, and it was, you know, it was about 200 people, and you know she obviously has her spiel but it's not really the same momentum, the same excitement it doesn't seem like on the bernie side. >> which when it comes to the caucus, guys, that's what you need. you need excitement. you need to be motivated. once you get in that room you got to withstand people coming at you telling you to change your vote. >> the most recent poll that we have comes to us from bloomberg and the des moines register. we want to take a look at this. how everybody stocks up. trump is at 28%. 5% over ted cruz at 23%. rubio at 15%. carson at 10%. paul 5%. christie 3%. bush 2%. fiorina 2%. huck by, kasich, santorum and uncommitted all at 2%. 3% are not sure. the very same poll is suggesting that senator marco rubio may have the most room to grow because of the favorability
5:03 am
ratings. bret, i want to get your thoughts on this. why do these numbers matter? >> well he has the most upside. the most room to grow. the most places to go. you know, anecdotally you talk to people here and they say rubio's doing well. but listen, it's all about who gets out there. >> sure. >> i just tuned in to the weather on the local affiliate, and it was commercial after commercial, back-to-back-to-back-to-back and there were two rubio ads. there was a bernie ad. and a hillary ad before we got to the weather. and, so on that sense i'm sure iowa's really going to be relieved when we get to wednesday. >> are there -- is there people that you think that the word is, bret, from your sources, that are not going to move on to new hampshire if they don't get the result? i mean, there's a lot of people i think that are running out of money, and need to see results. >> yeah. i think the field will be win knowed. and when you get to new hampshire that result will winnow the field even more before you get to south carolina. and the question is whether
5:04 am
there is, you know, an establishment candidate that somehow coalesces the rest of that lane of the field. >> what does hillary say if she loses tonight? she's the most famous woman on planet earth and by many measures one of the best loved. if she loses to a 74-year-old socialist in the first contest, how does she explain that? >> maybe she's explains it by the des moines register poll that says that 66% of democrats or something like that, more than 60% are fine with a socialist president. if there's a state that fits bernie sanders, it's probably iowa. but, i think that it will still be a big loss for hillary clton. but what's amazing is hillary clinton is -- wants to be the third term not of her husband, of barack obama. if you are to listen to her. i am surprised, personally, that she's embraced the obama administration like she has. >> well, i think she is looking towards that side of the democratic party. here you have 90-plus percent white population.
5:05 am
new hampshire, 92%. and it's a neighboring state for bernie sanders. in south carolina and the rest of the country, it's more like the democratic party, which is, you know, 54-46. and i think she is trying to embrace president obama's coalition. >> do you think the firewalls are what they're calling the southern states, the s.e.c. primary, is as strong for her as her aides say it is? >> it seems like it. but talking to brit hume last night momentum matters. and you know, at some point, if you don't post a "w," it starts to turn. and firewalls go away quickly. >> yes. >> rudy giuliani's sort of firewall never materialized. >> such a good point. that's exactly right. >> and bret by the way, hillary clinton was on all the morning shows this morning. apparently she's too busy to stop by fox, but she was asked about how closely she is linked to this president's record and this is what she said over on another channel.
5:06 am
>> seems like one of the differences, you are embracing president obama's legacy. and i was at an event for bernie sanders last night and he says, i'm a supporter of president obama, but i find the last eight years to have been disappointing. why is he wrong? >> well, look, i've had a lot of experience, i think that what president obama inherited, an economy that was in the ditch, he doesn't get the credit for pulling it out. i'm a progressive who actually likes to get things done. not just talk about it, but deliver results for people. >> and, bret, her very ownrtmen e-mails because they are so top secret, yet that question was not even asked. the e-mail scandal was not even a topic raised. why do you think that is? >> yeah, well that's pretty interesting. because now even bernie sanders is raising this. >> it's serious. >> it's serious. you know, i asked him on the trail just last week at the end of last week, do you regret saying i don't care about her
5:07 am
damn e-mails? and he said, no. he didn't. but, now, it's a very serious issue. i think that you're going to see that e-mail issue play heavily, obviously in the general election, but the question is whether she gets there. >> so is this a play for donors? when hillary clinton gets up and says there's nothing wrong, i'm not worried in the slightest, this is a republican distraction tactic, is she trying to tell her voters that everything's going to be okay? >> yes. the thing is if something happens between now and april, it's going to be significant in this race. whether it's an indictment or an fbi recommendation to go forward with -- >> will we know about the recommendation through a leak? >> i think we will. we're already getting stuff from the fbi and sources inside saying they're worried about it. >> bret, thanks so much for coming over. i appreciate it. now you're going to have to take the shuttle bus over to the other side of the auditorium. >> i'll wave to you. >> take a bite at the breakfast bar. >> bret baier, watch him tonight
5:08 am
on special report and the election caucus coverage. >> thank you so much for waking up with us, bret. you have a long night ahead of you. >> he does, indeed. you tuned in to a news channel for the news and for that heather nauert. >> a couple things going on today other than politics. the taliban taking credit for a deadly car bombing outside police headquarters in afghanistan's capital kabul. this new video showing the aftermath there. the attack killing at least nine people and injuring a dozen more. two police officers are among the dead. iran awarding victory medals to their navy commanders who played a role in capturing and humiliating american sailors. secretary of state john kerry had originally thanked the iranians for their cooperation in the release. but later said on "fox & friends" that those images made him furious. listen. >> it was very, very unfortunate, inappropriate, and as a former sailor, member of the military, infuriated by it, and i expressed that -- i
5:09 am
expressed that very directly to my counterpart. >> well the medals they received, one of the highest military honors that members can receive. and you can see that right there. minnesota governor mark dayton rushed to the hospital overnight after he collapsed during an event honoring political volunteers. a spokesman says the democrat was feeling pain and pressure in his lower back before he lost consciousness. doctors say the dehydration likely caused the fainting spell. they're keeping the 69-year-old in the hospital as a precaution. his team saying he's in good spirits. and did you watch this one last night on fox? the actress vanessa hutchins, stunning the crowd in grease live it was spectacular. what really got her attention is she went ahead with that live performance just hours after the death of her father. ♪ i don't feel and i don't mind but i can feel and i can cry ♪
5:10 am
♪ you never knew >> well there she is right there showing her strength, and her voice, as rizzo in the classic musical. but one day before going live her father losing his six-month battle with stage four cancer. he was just 65 years old. hudgens dedicating her performance to him in a tweet writing tonight i do this to show in his honor. also paying tribute by adding her dad's name to the end of the credits at that show. unbelievable. what a strong woman to go ahead and do that tribute to her father. >> the show must go on. >> yeah. how hard that would be. >> absolutely. but in some senses it's probably therapy for her, too. because she's an artist and that's what they do. you know. >> yeah, thanks. >> it was all live, and it was -- >> quite a show. >> it was. it was great. >> thanks, heather. here's what's coming up on the program. you just heard bret's thoughts on hillary clinton's e-mail scandal.

5:16 am
>> you introduced governor christie and he said he's my really good friend and i watched the way you interacted with each other. why not go out and just endorse governor christie? >> because i'm the governor of iowa and i want to be a good host for all the candidates. and there's a lot of good candidates running this time. we have more than ever before. and consequently that's the reason why i haven't endorsed. although i'm very appreciative, governor christie was chair of the republican governors. he campaigned for me. and he helped us win illinois and massachusetts and a maryland state that we didn't think we could pick up. plus defend all those other states we gain in 2010. so he did a great job, i'm very appreciative of what he did for me. and the other republican governors candidates. but there's a lot of other good candidates here, you know, former governor huckabee, former governor bush -- >> but they're all in single digits and kasich left. >> he's focusing on new hampshire. i guess my feeling is, governors have many tough decisions. balance their budgets.
5:17 am
they have to make the difficult decisions, and focus on the future and creating jobs and also dealing with disasters. >> you haven't endorsed anybody. but you came out against ted cruz over ethanol, over renewable fuels. >> i just gave an honest answer to a point-blank question. did i want him to win the caucuses? no. >> duly noted. >> because -- >> what i want to do is educate the voters. we have 43 ethanol plants, 12 biodiesel plants, tens of thousands of jobs. also, wind energy is big in our state, and we have companies that are making component parts for that. he voted against the wind energy tax credit. he wants to repeal the renewable fuel standard, which would cost farm income and tens of thousands of jobs in our state. and i think iowans need to know that because that's critically important. >> i want to take a look at the complexion of iowa voters.
5:18 am
2010 and 2014, let's take a look. 18% of the voters on the exit poll were liberal voters. and now in 2014, man, 23%, to the tune of 586,000. what does that mean? >> well, these are democrats you're looking at here. and i think 43% of iowa democrats identified as socialists. so that means bernie sanders got a real chance here. >> you know the interesting thing, it's not a coronation for clinton. she's got a tough race in iowa because a lot of the democrats are not satisfied. she's the epitome of the establishment, and they don't like washington, d.c. or wall street. so, even -- on both sides you've got a lot of dissatisfaction. among democrats, you've got some very liberal people that don't like hillary, and don't trust her. >> let's say hillary loses tonight. that will be the second time she's lost iowa.
5:19 am
let's say she loses and then becomes president. are you concerned? >> oh, she's vindictive -- >> you think she's vindictive? >> oh, she is vindictive. you know what she said after she lost her eight years ago, my concern is, if she gets beat here and then becomes president, i think we got real big problem. >> what do you think she'd do to you? >> well, i think she'd see to it that iowa was not first, because you at this stage stung her twice, you know, she's pretty vindictive and i don't think she would forget what happened. >> i just wonder about trends because i watched some of that emotion in a bar last night with governor christie and i believe we had some of that and i saw you introduce him. and the respect he had for you. one of the best things that happened to him was nine months in he gets a call from governor branstad, how does he even know me? and you guys struck up a relationship. >> well, i really appreciate
5:20 am
what he did as chair of the republican governors. we got a lot of states to defend. and we not only successfully defended all of them against pennsylvania, but we went on to win illinois, massachusetts and maryland. not easy states for republicans. and he really orchestrated that effort. i told him help me early you won't have to worry about me late. >> that's a really big christie head behind you. >> you're probably not going to answer this question but have to ask you, your predictions for tonight? >> well, the iowa poll is usually pretty accurate. i have a lot of respect -- >> des moines? >> for ann setter's poll. >> that's got trump up? >> yeah. >> governor branstad for you to come here and put us on your agenda. >> you're welcome. >> the endorsement everyone wanted. thanks so much. ten minutes before the bottom of the hour, hillary clinton has said her e-mail scandal is just like benghazi, a republican hit job. is that right? greta van susteren has some legal insight and she will join us live. how do i know? because she's walking this way.

5:25 am
i still put my papts on one leg at a time. groovy, huh? >> so, take a look at this. social media now proposing the dad bod ken. you remember dad bods, of course, are male bodies with a little extra padding around the midsection. you know like a six pack from the six packs of beer that they're drinking all the time. the idea is catching fire online. what do you think? all right, steve and brian, over to you. >> thank you very much. six pack, it's more of a keg. meanwhile hillary clinton turning on the blame game as she tries to explain the latest developments in her e-mail controversy. >> this is very much like benghazi, george. you know, republicans are going to continue to use it, beat up on me. i understand that. that's the way they are. but after 11 hours of testimony answering every single question, in public, which i had requested for many months, i think it's pretty clear they're grasping at straws and this will turn out -- >> so it's about 12 hours until people caucus in iowa.
5:26 am
how will it affect voters there? host of on the record greta van susteren joins brian and i to chat about this from des moines. okay, so greta, you know, politically hillary clinton is trying to glom benghazi on with this. because she feels her political consultants have poll tested this and said, okay, link it with benghazi because people don't care about benghazi, they say, and then they'll just dismiss this as well. but legally, and that's your department, there's a lot of peril here, isn't there? >> look, i'm a former criminal defense attorney and i always worry, i always think the worst case scenario. but i will say this, if these 22 e-mails that are now called top secret, if, in fact, they were classified afterwards, later, because the intelligence agency asked for it, i think she probably has a strong legal argument. but it certainly is a messy political situation. but we still don't have have all the facts. because we don't have all the e-mails. and the state department hasn't been wholly cooperative.
5:27 am
and we still don't have the answer, why in the world did she have an e-mail server in her house, that may not be a legal problem, but it sure is a political issue. >> what about the way she answers the question? could she get herself in additional jeopardy by the way she answers questions by greta van susteren or coming on "fox & friends"? >> no, not unless she gets on the witness stand and says something inconsistent and she's shown to have said something inconsistent. you only get in trouble if you make a false statement to the fbi. and then you get what martha stewart got. martha stewart never got indicted for insider trading. she got indicted for false statements to the fbi. >> sure. and they're going to look to escape that. >> and greta, given the fact that it sounds like she was hacked, not only by russia and china, and north korea, and other bad actors, as well, but how would this change in a legal way for her if it is proven that perhaps some american operators, cia agents, or people like that,
5:28 am
actually died because of secrets other governments got from her e-mail device that was wide open. >> all right, well you say proven. i mean, i don't know whether any of that can be proven. but even if it's proven i don't see this having legal liability. obviously there are all sorts of other implications. she was never supposed to have that server in her house. that violates the rules. so, look, you know, at this point one of the biggest problems we have is that we're all sort of flying blind. we don't have all the facts. that's a big problem. this is without a doubt a horrible scandal. a horrible scandal i'm not so sure how it's going to unravel in terms of a legal -- >> will we ever find out what the fbi recommends or are we just going to find out indictment or not indictment? >> i think what the fbi is probably going to do, my guess is because they don't want to be called political, they're going to send it over to the justice department. i suspect the justice department will convene a grand jury, and then it's going to be 16 to 23 citizens in a room who will hear evidence, and they'll make a decision but we'll never hear what happened in the grand jury.
5:29 am
i never wanted my clients ever to testify before a grand jury. because i tell you that the one -- if i represented hillary clinton and this is really going out on a limb, i might want her if it goes to a grand jury to testify so she could answer questions to a grand jury. i'm going way down the road. >> while she's running for president, unbelievable. tonight we're going to watch you at 7:00 eastern time. correct? >> absolutely. everybody's going to be watching, right? i mean that's why i got up so early. you promised me that. >> the caucus starts and so do you, you can have one of your guests carly fiorina. >> we're going on the bus. i haven't been on a lot of bus rides recently. >> all right. greta, thanks so much. always great to see you. >> nice to see you. >> well, before she -- and carly fiorina's going to be with us very shortly. also coming up sarah palin just gave her first interview since her big endorsement supporting donald trump, and what she said is already making headlines. we've got it on the other side of a brief time-out. and we are going behind the scenes once again in iowa, this time brian is going to wake up one of our big stars.

5:34 am
>> how many iowa caucuses have you covered? >> every one since '92. >> have you ever remembered this type of intrigue? >> this is unbelievable because the stakes are so high. not just for the country, but the way we conduct politics. the way the parties are ordered -- basically this will determine what the parties believe. this is a challenge not simply to the other party but to their own party. bernie sanders and donald trump are running against their own parties to some great extent. so this is really a transformative, potentially, election. >> today is going to be a very exciting day. former governor sarah palin is going to be on the stump today in cedar rapids for donald trump. she was just on another morning show and they asked her, wait a minute, you came out and you helped ted cruz get elected to the u.s. senate. why didn't you endorse ted cruz, and why did you endorse, instead, donald trump? and this is what the former governor of alaska had to say. >> -- >> to someone like ronald
5:35 am
reagan, who, too, had at one point, he was a registered democrat even. and then he saw the light. and i say, wonderful. i am so glad that donald trump is on our side when it comes to the political spectrum understanding that free markets capitalism, and restoration of our freedoms is the way for america to be restored. good. we should celebrate that he has come over on the right side. >> any time you mention ronald reagan's name, buzz word, kmpzs love ronald reagan. was this a fair comparison, tucker? >> it's really kind of hard to know. i mean -- >> she feels a little bit differently. i see every republican candidate in my lifetime really since the 1984 campaign has invoked reagan. i see trump taking the party in a very different direction. a more nationalist direction. i'm not saying that that's good or bad but it's very different from every other republican campaign i have covered in 25 years. so i'm not saying trump isn't
5:36 am
reagan but he's running a very, very different campaign with very, very different ideas from anything we've seen. >> the first time she endorses donald trump, the next day she's out on the stump, i think in oklahoma, and she brought up that her son's had problems and she seems to have blamed it on ptsd and then tangentially on barack obama. >> i never blamed president obama. what i have blamed president obama in doing, though, is this level of disrespect for the united states military that has made manifest in getting -- >> do you regret the comment, governor pail, on that day of the endorsement? >> what did i say that is offensive? >> that you -- at the feet of the president of? >> i don't regret any comments that i made because i didn't lay ptsd at the foot of the president. i did say, though, that there is, and suggested very adamantly, that there is much more that our commander in chief
5:37 am
can do to prove that he respects our troops, and will let them do their jobs. >> that's kind of the way i remembered it, as well, where she said the president should do more for the guys who came back, and she had talked earlier about how her son had come back from his duty changed. >> whenever you politicize your own family it's tough for sure. it's hard to know what goes on in anyone else's family. but whenever you use that as a campaign talking point i think you open yourself up to criticism. >> yeah. it did sound like she blamed ptsd on president obama, whether she meant to or not. that's the way it seemed to have come off. meanwhile yesterday, after i landed. my one goal was to do what tucker has experienced since the '80s and find out what it is like in iowa trying to go inside these campaigns. so from the minute we stopped off on the plane, to the second we got to editing at about 10:00 at night, here's a look at four campaigns that we went to, and here's what you missed.
5:38 am
whoo. on the ground in iowa. finally. candidates everywhere. my goal is to see as many as i can on stage, in action, and see what their supporters are like. first stop, rick santorum. he's having i think a house party. a private party. i have no idea what to expect, after all, last time around, four years ago, he won this thing. des moines, this is the home of rich santorum. what do you get out of this situation? what do you get out of a major event or a big arena? >> the one-on-one questions, the personality, really seeing what they're like. you see them up close and personal. >> i'm trying to take a look around and see which candidates i like the most. >> the idea of the big rallies and the big events, and the celebrity status that donald trump brings has really altered the landscape here and the question is, how will that be reflected at the caucus. >> so that was my first caucus house party.

that was great. small, intimate affair. so rick santorum's gone so we should, too. next stop, bernie sanders. >> i think i'm at the right place. bernie sanders. not even his bus, and look at the size of this line. are you for bernie? >> yes. >> so you've decided? >> yes. >> will you caucus? >> yes. >> just a few hours away. if he's worried about turnout one thing is for sure, they turned out today. we've got a busy night still ahead. we're off to see chris christie. >> what are you looking for? what are you going to listen for? >> i like president with a backbone to be honest with you. and i country christie has that. >> i don't have my mind made up yet. >> and so chris christie has a chance of winning over lisa? >> yes, sure. absolutely. >> do you know what you're going to say? >> i have an idea of what i'll say. but you know me. you've dealt with me long enough. listen i'm not rubio. okay. i don't work off a prepared script. >> governor chris christie from new jersey.
5:40 am
>> why a pub? why is that the perfect place? >> because i get much better looking and more charming when people are drinking, brian. >> you have one more stop to make. it's ted cruz. he's having a rally. got to leave the bar. here we are at the fairgrounds. this is the site of ted cruz's late night show. a lot of people say you have a ton of great candidates, why ted? >> because he's pro-life, he's pro-marriage, and he's so constitutional. >> for cruz it's win it all or it's going to come out like a loss. the other big question is how many people here are from iowa and how many will actually caucus. a busy day yesterday -- >> wait a minute. i think they changed locations. where are you guys? what are you doing? >> shhh -- >> i think it's time to let you know what it is like living at the embassy suites. >> okay. >> we're going to knock on somebody's door right now. now -- >> just anybody? >> who have you seen here? >> could it be geraldo's lair? >> no. >> could be it ellen combs?
5:41 am
>> no. >> just knock on the door! >> could it be neil cavuto? >> might be. >> could it be kimberly guilfoyle? who's in room 232 at the embassy suites. >> oh, man. >> oh, my gosh! it is eric! >> tucker. >> look at you guys. >> i'm going for a run. you guys coming with? >> you're going to go for a run? >> wait a second. are you doing this for the morning show audience to make them think you get up this early? >> you know i run here every single day. >> i see you every morning. you run inside right around the rooms. >> the whole up and down the river. it's a beautiful run. 28 degrees. it's perfect. >> all right. >> all right. >> going to go for a run. there they go. leeing the pack. >> by the way, eric is not going to sleep in that room tonight, so don't go to that room, knocking on the door, thinking he's there. because he's going to move. >> and a married man. >> there you go.
5:42 am
>> and there they go jogging. >> around the ring of the atrium. that's funny. >> all right coming up on this monday we have a lot of program left. carly fiorina is on deck. >> yes, she is. >> also you have a very special surprise for us. someone is waiting in the wings. who could it be? super bowl guest and super bowl snacks with sally doocy. >> queso. caucus queso. when account lead craig wilson books at laquinta.com. he gets a ready for you alert the second his room is ready. so he knows exactly when he can settle in and practice his big pitch. and when craig gets his pitch down pat, do you know what he becomes? great proposal! let's talk more over golf! great. better yet, how about over tennis? even better. a game changer! your 2 o'clock is here. oops, hold your horses. no problem. la quinta inns & suites is ready for you, so you'll be ready for business. the ready for you alert, only at lq.com. laquinta!
5:43 am
5:44 am
5:45 am
all right. we're continuing our live coverage from iowa in the beautiful embassy suites, the nerve center of the fox news coverage. our next guest will make her final pitch to the american people and the people of iowa today before tonight's caucus. republican presidential candidate carly fiorina joins us. carly, thanks so much. great to see you again. >> great to see you. >> seems like yesterday when you were releasing your biography, releasing your story to the
5:46 am
country. and you said to everyone, for everyone to know, no one knew who you were back then. >> that's right. >> in what way did you accomplish your goal in getting your name out? >> first of all this is not the end of the process, this is the beginning of the process. despite all the discussion for the last ten months, people only start voting now. we're leaving here and heading to new hampshire. but, you're right, i started out 17 out of 16 candidates. less than 4% of the people here had ever heard of me. >> right. >> and we're going to surprise here in iowa tonight. >> so, in what way do you feel as though -- you did not have an opportunity maybe to capitalize the momentum that you got for a period there. do you have anything you can learn from iowa to take to new hampshire? >> well, i disagree with the premise of your question. i don't judge how this campaign is going by the polls. and the reason i don't is because the polls are so quickly wrong. they've been wrong over and over and over again. and they're particularly wrong in iowa. they have historically been so wrong in iowa. so i know what i see on the ground. i know we're packing people in. i know who says they were
5:47 am
undecided until they came to see me. so we're going to exceed expectations in iowa, just as we have all along the way. and despite the fact that the game is rigged in a lot of ways we're going to keep going. >> in what respect is it rigged? >> let's see, the political establishment didn't like the fact that there were so many candidates. the establishment decided we had to have really few debates. the media decided they were going to pick who was on what stage because of the polls. all that has nothing to do with the voters. voters show up. and the voters actually aren't paying attention to the polls. and they're not paying attention to the pundits. they're showing up and making their minds. i've had i would say 20 events in the last 48 hours. and you'd be amazed how many people walked in, undecided, and how many people walked out caucusing for me. so we're going to surprise. >> that sounds a lot like the santorum story from four years ago. in retrospect, what number would you be happy with? and what would exceed your expectations? and what would go below your expectations? >> i'm not going to give you a number, i'm just going to say
5:48 am
we're going to surprise in iowa tonight and get on a plane and go to new hampshire. >> and you'll be there tomorrow. >> yes, i will. >> what events you have today? >> i'm going to several caucus events and i have local radio all day today. >> carly fiorina, thanks so much. meanwhile straight ahead on our show, steve has a special treat for us. he's cooking, i understand, for everyone in new york. but he had to bring his daughter sally to help and i think it's a great move. but first let's check in with bill hemmer and martha maccallum because we have exclusive insight on what's coming up for their next two hours. >> come on over here, brian. hey, it's 12 paces. >> hi, brian. >> can you make it in time? we've got an awesome show coming up, because -- >> we do. >> finally -- >> it's finally here. >> you can put all the b.s. to the side now, because this is when it matters. this is -- >> hey! >> brian's in town. >> hello, brian. >> i just want to wish you the best of luck. >> i was laughing at you guys running around up there. >> you might want to try it?
5:49 am
>> was eric wearing a robe? >> so we got a lot coming up. and we're going to get rawlins and trippy to tell us their three, two, one in that order >> three, two, one finish. >> who comes in third, who comes in second, who comes in first and why. all that and much more on caucus day when we see you in a few minutes. >> see you then. oh remotes, you've had it tough.
5:50 am
watching tvs get sharper, bigger, smugger. and you? rubbery buttons. enter the x1 voice remote. now when someone says... show me funny movies. watch discovery. record this. voila. remotes, come out from the cushions, you are back. the x1 voice remote is here.
5:51 am
rethink. reimagine. because right here, right now. it's time to take a closer look at botox® cosmetic, the only fda approved treatment for the temporary improvement of both moderate to severe frown lines and crow's feet. see what real results can really look like. so talk to your doctor about botox® cosmetic. and make it part of what you do for you. the effects of botox® cosmetic, may spread hours to weeks after injection, causing serious symptoms. alert your doctor right away, as difficulty swallowing, speaking, breathing, eye problems, or muscle weakness can be a sign of a life-threathening condition. do not take botox® cosmetic if you have a skin infection. side effects may include allergic reactions, injection site pain, eyelid drooping and swelling. tell your doctor about your medical history, muscle or nerve conditions and medications including botulinum toxins, as these may increase the risk of serious side effects. look me... in the eyes... and see what's possible... botox® cosmetic. it's time to take a closer look.
5:52 am
come on steve, you're not supposed to drop it. you may not know this but steve doocy whips up a mean queso dip and he's here with his wonderful daughter sally to tell us how to do it. >> that's right. all this week we're going to be looking at super bowl dishes. sally how long has this particular recipe been a doocy
5:53 am
family favorite? >> dad learned it apparently during his bachelor years. >> oh, yes. >> and charmed my mom with the recipe and he's been making it a couple times a year. >> with the two ingredients, right? >> that's right. this is so simple. this is a producer friend of mine showed me how to make the row tell dip, it is two things a can of rotel and velveeta. anybody can do this. because sally is here i'm going to show you how simple. first thing is you take a block of velveeta. and what do you do with it? >> dice it up into little pieces. >> all right. let's see here. >> so, just about that size. >> now we should also point out that this is not per se what we always have super bowl sunday. >> no. mom every year makes her world famous chili recipe. >> yeah, she does. but -- >> but she does not want to reveal the recipe on national television. >> she didn't want to share her secrets, huh? >> that's right. >> and where did i get the
5:54 am
recipe for this? >> from the side of the can >> yeah, from the side of the can. >> and it has to be velveeta, though? you have tried it with regular cheddar cheese. >> we tried it with the fancy cheese and it just wasn't right. >> so then over like how hot is that? >> it's the medium temperature. >> or a crock pot? >> exactly. just throw it in. >> and you stir. >> come on, sally, just throw the whole thing in. this is not the food network. not yet. so you do that. and then what's the other -- you've done one ingredient. what's the other one? >> the second is the rotel. so then you just pour it in. you don't have to -- no draining. >> and rotel i didn't know is just tomatoes and green chilies. >> yeah. there are other brands but that's my favorite. absolutely my favorite. >> this is for the magic of television after about five minutes it winds up like this. >> is it better with a blue corn chip or regular corn chip? >> try it. >> i'll try it with a blue corn chip. >> all right. >> mm-hmm.
5:55 am
>> and because today the iowa caucuses we're going to have this tonight at our house. we're going to call it -- >> caucus queso. >> caucus queso >> the other thing that we always do at the doocy house for super bowl is sally generally always finds some fantastic dessert. this year she discovered a place called black tap new york city, and these are some of the milkshakes that peopleville been standing in line for three hours for. they're $15. they're about a foot and a half tall. but they're unbelievable. >> and they make great instagram photos. sally, isn't this real nearby where the famous cronut is in town, as well? >> yes, down there -- >> yes. >> downtown, right? >> yes. >> mm-hmm. if you would like the recipe, here it is. velveeta, and a can of rotel. >> and a black tap milk shake. >> tomorrow my husband is going to be on the program. he's australian so we're making aussie meat pie and a massive
