whether you get knocked down that matters, it's whether you get back up. >> r`porter: the strategy now shift the focus to south carolina and nevada, the hope that clinton support among african-american and latino voters can help propel her to the nomination. the 22-point loss in new hahashire, bigger and momo embarrassing than her camp ever expected. so big even sanders was shocked. you sound like you're surprised by the outcome yourself? >> we thought we'd win but not by that large a vote. >> reporter: when i asked about the uphill fight ahead, this stark admission. if the election were tomorrow do you think yoy could win south carolina and nevada? >> no. fortunately for us, the election is not tomorrow. >> reporter: and about those recent attacks from bill clinton. has he gone below the belt? >> i think so. look, i know he's going to be out there defending his wife. trust me, my wife will be out there defending me. >> reporter: but the battle now for minority voters.
big g n, harlem where he a a soul food and met with al sharpton. and listen to this, that new hampshire win was very lucrative for bernqe sanders. in the 18 hours after the polls closed there, sanders raised more than $5 million shattering the campaign's previous record for money raised in less than a day. guys, and it is mostly from small donations. >> that's s at's been fueling him all along. high stakes tonight in this debate. clinton team telling you anything about their strategy? >> you know, it's funny, george. they won't. they don't want to put their playbook out. in the past they've given us nuggets here and there. minority communities to be a big one. that's the battleground and where bernie sanders is especially vulnerable watching for hillary clinton to go on the he is ready for it. >> very important tonight. now to the republican race, the field down to six candidates this morning after chris christie and carly fiorina announced they are dropping out.
to take place. abc's jon karl is there for us in clemson, _outh carolina. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, robin. after the big win in new hampshire. trump took a victory lap in south carolina last night. he's hoping a big win here will make him unstoppable. the republican candidates are bringing their fight for the gop nomination to the south this morning. rallying supporters overnight, donald trump said a south carolina win would clear his path to the republican nomination. >> we win here, we're going to run the table. if we win here, after winning so big in new hampshire. all of these characters are going to give it up. >> reporter: trump once again trained his fire on jeb bush who is hoping a strong south carolina showing can save his campgn. >> you have a guy like bush who has his big fund -- it's terrible. i'll be honest, the last thing we need is another bush. that i can tell you.
the winner of the iowa caucuses couldn't repeat that performance in new hampshire, he says he won't be deterred by trump's victory. >> one of the most important conclusions coming out of these first two states is that the only candidate who can beat donald trump is me. >> reporter: meanwhile, marco rubio is trying to get back on track after his disappointing fifth place finish in new hampshire. we caught up with rubio as he headed to south carolina. he says he's willing to take on the gop front-runner. are you going to go after donald trump? >> it's no longer in my opinion we're going to do but you won't them. >> reporter: and john kasich after his surprise second place finish in new hampshire drew an overflow crowd in south carolina. kasich has relied on a positive campaign but says he is ready to hit back at his rivals. >> don't mess with me, okay. so i'm not going t tbe a pin cushion for a marshmallow but time trying to trash other
>> reporter: when this race started we had 17 republican candidates and now we're down to six. donald trump and five others all dividing u that anti-trump vote. robin. >> that is true. but what is the situation right now? how does the race stand right now in south carolina? >> reporter: there have been no reliable polls since a week before the iowa caucuses. but in everyoll in south carolina going back to october donald trump has had a commanding lead and there's little evidence anything has changed that. the other candidatete have nine days to make up some ground. >> all the polls in new hampshire, as well. let's get more from our political analyst matthew dowd. matthew, very different terrain from iowa and manchester, new hampshshe and that has vicioio politics. >> it gets nasty and negative fast. it is different. it has aspects of iowa and new hampshire. first it's an open pririry. that meansnsemocrat, independents and republicans can
but it also has the highest percentage of evangelicals similar to iowa but one of the differences in the evangelicals in south carolina is they're not drdren to the polls by s sial issues but establishment conservative issues and so when you look at all the panorama of this and also is, south carolina is going to have twice as many liberal and momorate voters as iowa, so when you look at it, you give advantage, donald trump, when you go into south carolina. >> and he probably has the lead going in. let's talk about the democrats. that debate tonight. a lot of commentary swirling around hillary clinton's debate strategy. does she go very, very positive, put forward a vision, some people said she hasn't done that or is now the time to really try to take down bernie sanders? >> well, listen, george, she's been wounded and she's bleeding so the first thing she needs to do is apply a tourniquet and stopping bleeding so she doesn't lose nevada the next state up. at i would do if i were her prosecute the case directly ainst bernie sanders and ignore the moderators and basically say in a calm, cool,
saying the oy person on this stage that can get anything done is me. your ideas are great. they're aspirational but the only person that can get things done is myself. i woululturn to him and prosecute the case. >> we'lllle watching tonight. matthew dowd, thanks very much. >> thank you. now to new developments overnight in ferguson, missouri, the federal government announcing it's suing the city trying to force it to overhaul its police department. which has repeatedly been accused of racial discrimination. abc's pierre thomas is in washington with that story for us. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, robin. in a blunt press conference the attorney general accused the city of ferguson of stonewalling attempmp to right the wrongs of a police department she flatly described as racially biased. >> all: this is what d%mocracy looks like. >> reporter: this morning the justice department firmly agreeing with african-american residents of ferguson saying their complaints of unfair and racially biased police enforcement are,n fact, true. >> the ferguson police department's violations in particular were expansive and
without reasonable suspicion. by arresting them without cause and by using unreasonable force. these violations were not only egregious, they were routine. they were driven at least in part by racial bias. >> reporter: the justice department now suing the city of ferguson less than 24 hours after the city council rejected a deal to reform the p pice. >> i think the things that we've asked for are very reasonable. we're not trying to take away any safeguards. >> reporter: the attorney general wasn't buying it saying blacks in the city which saw so much unrest after the fatal police shooting of michael brown -- >> they have waited decades for justice. they should not be forced to wait any longer. >> reporter: fergusosoofficials say y ey're willing to reform police practices but argue that implementing the deal might be too costly and that changes were needed. ferguson city councilman mark burns sent us an e-mail last night saying while washington politicians can run up endless debt that doesn't work in ferguson where we, quote, actually have to pay our bills.
robin. >> it certainly is all right, pierre, thank you. > now we turn to amy with the morninins other top stories starting with a tragedy in maryland. >> it is so, so sad. flags are flying at half-staff across maryland to honor two sheriff's deputies shot and killed while responding toto reports of a suspicious person at a panera restaurant. this is north of baltimore. police say the suspectho is wanted on two warrants opened fire targeting the deputies before he himselelwas shot dead. the deputies were 16 and 30-year veterans of the force. well, there are new precautions now because of the zika virus. the u.s. olympic committee says it will hire infectious disease experts to advise athletes about the outbreak in brazil after soccer star hope solo expressed concerns aboutraveling to the rio games this summer. north korea leader kim jong-un appears to have made another move to tighten his grip on power. sources in south korea say he's
citing abuse of power, a day after the senate approved harsh sanctions on the regime. and a detained american sailor appeared to be crying. a u.s. navy spokesman says we are disgusted by the exploitation of our sailors for propaganda. ten were held after straying into iranian waters. > d some terrifying scenes from india as an elephant rampaged through this town for hours crushing cars. it damaged about 100 homes. people ran for their lives but the animal was not on the attack. apparently it was just looking for the way back to the forest. it was subdued with tranquilizers and returned to the wild. and finally, sometimes you just really, reaeay need your morning coffee, especially after a snowstorm so forget the four-wheel drive. one woman in canada relied on four-legged drive and hooked up her trained border collies to her sled and made a beeline for the tim horton drive-through. they had a special lane for her. an urban musher.
thing and a pro. she didn't get any coffee for the dogs. she said they're plenty hyper already. that's what i call a coffee run, you know. >> maybe a doughnut for the dogs. >> that would have been nice. they had their treats. >> thanks, amy. we'll move on to the debate over concussions in pro sports. now turning to wrestling after that big announcement from wwe superstar retiring because of repeated jesse is here with that and bryan wants to send a message. >> he sure does. the #thankyoudaniellebryan is filling up after the fan favorite announced that severe concussions are forcing him out of the ring and now wants to be a role model for others at risk. >> exchanging head butts at the top of the ladder. >> reporter: it's hits like that and slams like this that now has one of pro wrestling's most
>> i took a test that said maybe my brain isn't as okay as i thought it was. >> reporter: 34-year-old wwe champion daniel bryan announcing this week that he's walking away from the sport he loves because of concussions. >> within the first five months of my wrestling career, i had already had three concussions. and then it gets to the point when you've been wrestling for 16 years that adds up to a lot of concussions. >> reporter: his doctor documents at least ten of them, some bryan says even leading to izures. so, unlike many pro athletes in sports where concussions are a constant danger bryan is one o the first to walk away before too much damage is done something he's encouraging others to consider. >> you have a responsibility to yourself, to your family, to your friends just to protect yourself. >> reporter: and bryan makes it clear he doesn't blame the sport or the wwe. he says after his last concussion, even after several
clear him to return. and that decision may have saved him from a situation where he wouldn't have been able to walk away by choice and maybe without major consequence. >> you're seeing more and more athlhles. nfl players have left the sport of concussions. people becoming much more >> clear about why he's doing rob on the weather. record cold in the east. heat in the west. >> yin and yang and california, three days in a row of record-shattering heat and we'll do it again today. maybe slightly cooler, 10 to 20 degrees above normal. reinforcing shot with a run of the marathon ahead of schedule
this year.as well. while we'll start off cold again, highs should make the upper teens to lower 20s. tonight, another batch of light snow should move into the area. this one should be farther east than yesterday's snow and should affect more of eastern iowa as a result. while amounts will remain light and generally under 1", it'll make for a slick morning commute on fridid. the wind will pick up behind this system during the day on friday and may cause some patchy blowing snow still to come on "gma," that nightmare royal caribbean cruise ship battered by a terrifying storm. the passengers are hear and

balconies three stories high. after four harrowing days at sea, the "anthem of the seas" finally made it to shore where passengers were greeted with cheers. the 4500 now sea-weary passengers thankful to be on dry land. >> i'm alive. i'm alive. this is insane. >> reporter: again and again, we heard stories of fear, of passengers saying as the ship was being pounded by 30-foot waves and wind gusts topping 100 miles per hour sunday night they thought for sure they would not survive. >> some people were absolutely terrified. it was scary. >> reporter: some are still questioning the captain's judgment to venture out to sea with severe storm warnings in the forecast and wednesday night, royal caribbean apologized to its passengers in a statement calling the event exceptional and saying the company has identified gaps in our planning system that we are addressing. what happened this week showed that we need to do better. >> something went wrong.
forecast correctly or we will do a complete review of the situation to see if there's any way to change our procedure, processes to do anything to make sure this doesn't happen. >> reporter: maritime lawyer jim walker says half a dozen passengers already called him from the ship wanting to file a lawsuit. >> the real issue here is whether the cruise lines have any liability for the fear and anxiety that most of these passengers had and in most cases, cruise lines are not responsible when the passengers have been fearful of weaer conditions. >> reporter: while at least four people suffered minor injuries, royal caribbean says the ship didn't sustain any major damage. the ntsb is currently considering an investigation. in the meantime, royal caribbean will once again set sail on bahamas. robin. >> all right, linsey, joining us now to share their stories are
and charlotte lipman and lauren, whitney, brittany and alex and albert hayes. >> good morning. >> do you still feel like you're >> absolutely. >> i was just looking at you as we're so thankful that there are only some minor injuries and that you all are doing okay. okay, whwhkissed the ground when they got back? anybody do that? everyone? you always hear about people saying they're going to kiss the ground. peter, we saw your sister's video that she posted. you guys were told to stay in your cabins. it looks like you guys were in a washing machine. i mean, what was it like inside -- >> that's exactly what it was like. it was absolutely terrifying. we were on the third floor with an ocean view and we literally saw the ocean with dori swimming by. >> good you can have a sense of humor about it right now. but the captain would come on. you could hear even -- 17 years he's been a captain. he was experienced but there are
their first time out. could you hear theheear in their voices? >> absolutely. my sister walked out into the corridor and saw some of the staff hugging and crying and that's when she got concerned. we also didn't have any life vests in the cabin which i i unusual. we've cruised many times and i guess they keep them at stations now but we were told to go back to the cabins and there were no life vests. luckily we had our own personal snorkel vests and my sister was wearing it throughout the -- >> yes. >> you guys have been on cruises before. wasn't your first rodeo. >> we have. >> lauren, okay, i can understata this, you had a panic attack. >> oh, yeah. >> even though you were -- >> beyond. >> even though you were told to stay in the cabin, you had cabin fever. had to get out. >> we were probably -- we were all together probably in the room for 20 minutes if that and then we left. yeah. i couldn't do it and the crew members were even telling us get back to the room and i said, no. i'm not going back. >> i hate to use the phrase but you said you felt like you had a
>> i felt that way when the loudspeaker telling us to get back to our rooms. he didn't sound very convincing that it was going to be okay so it just -- everyone around us just started crying, saying they couldn't breathe. i had a guy rubbing my back up the stairs saying it's going to be okay. when everyone is freaking out like that it gives you a lot of anxiety. out. charlotte, you're 10 years old. it was your birthday cruise. yeah. >> and your daddy y d everyone said you were having a good time eating candy and stuff. what was it like for you? >> it was kind of scary since i saw the waves and they were basically almost crashing on to our terrace. and the room is basically tilted all the way down like a ramp but when it wasn't moving i just ran down and then i fell on the bed. it was fun but still really scary. >> yeah, because your day was there for you and you had d be concerned, papa. >> it was very concerning but we tried to make the best of it. >> you said you got to eat candy and got quality time with your
you heard in linsey's report the response from royal caribbean saying that there were some gaps and stuff. looking back, what do you all think should have been perhaps done differently, would you want something different? >> yes, it came to my attention from a meteorologist friend of mine this storm had been forecast up toto week before and i've been watching the news since we came on land and they forecast was very accurate as far as what we were sailing into. so, you know, in retrospect, the captain did maneuver us through the storm, but i think he was instrumental in getting us to the storm and that's what i how do we prevent this from happening again. >> the big lesson here. show of hands. who is going to go on a cruise ship again? >> look at you. >> a few shaky hands. charlotte was right up.
>> she's a daredevil. >> hey, thank you all very much and finding the humor in it. i knowowt had to be some verer scary moments and thank you for sharing your story. glad that you're bac on somd ground. althe best to you. >> thanks robin. coming up as the temperatures plunge what should you do if you want to use your phone outside? we'll look at the touch screen gloves that can keep you connected. put them to the test.oves that can keep you connected. put them to the test.ve with... a pebble. some males, however... are smarter than others. save up to 30% on select diamonds in rhythm. at kay, the number one jewelry store in america... every kiss begins with kay. guys, kay jewewers would like to remind you... ...it's engagement season. and, all engagement and wedding rings are 20% off this friday through monday only. at kay... the number-one jewelry store e r... yes! at ally bank, no branches equa great rates. it's a fact.

results right now on "gma." >> typing in the cold can be a pain in more ways than one. >> annoying having to take off the gloves every time to send a text. >> reporter: regular gloves don't work with touch screens. here's why, the fabric blocks the charge from your finger which activates your phone. nick guy, a website that advises on best gadgets evaluated 12 pairs to find out how well they work. looking at all of these, they don't have the tips we're so used to seeing. >> the technololy is advanced. they actually sew in silver and copper thread that conducts electricity and allows you to use your touch screen as if you weren't wearing gloves. >> to test for touch screen ability. he camped out in a temperature controlled brewery cooler, a lot like this one keeping it consistently frosty above freezing while he texted, used apps and played games. now it's my turn with wire cutter's picks. all right, it's cold in here. >> it is. >> 37 degrees.

signs about dementia in america. it appears to be on the decline. a new study finds rates of dementia are down more than 40% since the 1970s among whites. doctors say the change is most likely because of lower rates of found a link between higher education and a lower risk for dementia. well, we have an update on this video we showed you of that spect by tripping him on a sidewalk. well, police released the video in the hopes of finding him so they could thank him for doing their legwork, and now they have. it turns out he is a soldier in the british army, and like any good soldiererhe is always on duty. and finally the secret service has posted a sign outside the white house that may seem a little obvious. it reads, weapons prohibited at the white house. well, the agency tells "usa today" that it's required by law to post the sign to have the
was passed back in 1988. it took them 28 years to get the sign up. no word why it took so long, but good work, guys. better late than never, robin. >> i guess so, amy. thank you. we got a big health headline for the millions of americans trying to lose weight. two-thirds of u.s. adults are classified as overweight or obese, and a new study from johns hopkins university reveals those popular weight loss centers that so many use may not be helping. dr. jennifer ashton is here with the details. so, what's going on here, jen? >> so, robin, if you are overweight or obese and in my office, i would likely counsel you about the importance of losing weight and then might likely r%fer you to one of these weight loss centers to help you because this is an ordeal. so what this study did is they kind of went behind the scenes and did a report card in an urban area of medical weight loss centers and what they found, they didn't do so well. there is a lot of room for improvement. one of the findings was about 1%
guidelines in helping patients lose weight. fewer than one in three are actually supervised by a physician, and only about 3% are recommending the proper amountnt so, again, not such a good report card here. >> these are shocking numbers. >> yeah. the reququements? >> we don't know. i mean, my take on this is a number of possible explanations. number one, a center may choose deliberately to pursue their own approach, which is fine as long as you're transparent about that, and you want to follow your own espy. what would be more concerning if they were actually unaware that there were real guidelines that should ideally be followed and, lastly, obviououy there could be financial gain here, and it could be a scam, so this is a scenario again where patients need to proceed with caution. buyer, beware. >> congratulations, you are just newly -- >> yes. >> -- board certified when it
>> thank you. >> and there is some research out there that shows why it is so difficult for many to lose weight. right, we know baseseon the obesity medicine data, in some cases losing a significant amount of weight may not be as simple as eating carrot sticks and exercising a lot because this is a complex issue with multiple causes. there are metabolic reasons, hormonal reasons, environmental reasons, exposure in utero, behavioral, genetic. this is a war on obesity, so we need an army to fight it. >> jen, you know so many peoeoe, they see these centers in malls, in strip malls and all around. what is your recommendation? >> well, proceed with caution. okay, there are a couple of tips. number one, you want to be clear about your goals at the onset. are you going to lose 20 pounds or are you going because you're trying to lose 200 pounds and you want to ask about the credentials of the peoeoe operating these centers. >> good. >> that should be up front. it's not a secret. you are entitled to know their qualifications. ideally, people can go to the internet and read the american heart association and obesity
loss from 2013. it's a magnum opus, but it is there and it is accessible for everyone to look at and, lastly, you have to factor in cost. we say it all the time. it's expensive to be oveveeight. but getting good health can also be expensive, and so cost has to be factored in. >> wonderful suggestions right there. all right, congratulations again. >> thank you. >> like she needs another title. doesn't have enough going on. >> a little bit of free time. >> a little. jen will be answering your questions throughout the morning. tweet her @drjenashton. go to "gma's" facebook page as well. now to jesse with the "morning menu." >> thanks, robin. here's what's coming up on the "morning menu." kim kardashian opening up about baby number two and starting a parenting debate. what experts are saying this morning. and lara is live on the "scandal" set getting unprecedented access with the entire cast like you've never seen before. plus, tory johnson is here with some grgrt "deals & steals" to keep your family warm as the temperature drops, and it is getting colder.
