3:26 am
finally, tonight, talk about gymnastics floor routines and many picture something like ballet set to classical music. but we introduce you to a gymnast stretching the limit to a different beat. >> reporter: gymnastics is all about grace. >> nice. >> reporter: power. and hip-hop? it's not just the high notes that ucla gymnast sophiena hits, it's those moves.
3:27 am
sport, and what you did was very non-traditional. she and her teammates are changing this. >> i feel that it's much more about entertainment now than the ridge id sport as perfection. >> reporter: she is getting high marks from judges. but even higher marks on social media, where her floor exercise earlier this month, the first time she ever performed it, went viral. >> i woke up, and my mom called, and she said do you know you have like 5 million views on your floor routine? i didn't know it was posted anywhere. >> reporter: it's now been viewed more than 40 million times. tell me some of your responses. >> some of my favorite ones have been marriage proposals and prom proposals. >> reporter: and a lot of celebrities have taken notice.
3:28 am
i found out that chris brown posted it on his facebook. i was like oh, my gosh. no way. >> reporter: even her teammates have gotten into the groove, along with her coach, who admits you can please a crowd but still not please everyone. >> i think there are judges that still don't like it. i've always compared it to a picasso. there a lot of people who would not put a picasso in their home because they don't like it. but that doesn't mean it's not excellent art. >> reporter: sophiena says she has danced professionally. ly not find the nae nae, the whip and the dab in reno. >> the one performance i did, that was my olympics. >> reporter: and a moment as good as gold. carter evans. cbs news, los angeles. that is the overnight news for this monday. for some of you, the news
3:29 am
for others, check back later for the morning news and cbs this morning. this is the "cbs overnight news." welcome to the overnight news. the biggest day in presidential races comes tuesday. clinton came away with 72% of
3:30 am
sanders sanders. trump has the support of 40% of primary voters, compared to 27% for marco rubio and 22% for ted cruz. trump is also at 40% in georgia. but in his home state of texas, cruz is out front with 42%. 11 points better than trump. marco rubio's in third. cruz discussed the race on "face the nation." >> i think super tuesday is the most important day of this primary election. it is the most delegates awarded in a single night will be awarded on super tuesday, and i think we are positioned to have a very good night on super tuesday. about 65% of republicans believe that donald trump is not the best candidate to go head to head with hillary clinton, and we are the only campaign that has beaten donald trump, and we're the only candidate that can beat donald trump.
3:31 am
states, we are running neck in neck with donald all across states in super tuesday. it's important that they recognize that nominating a candidate who agrees with hillary clinton, who has a very similar record, is not the path to victory. if conservatives stand together, we're going to have a great night on tuesday. >> reporter: if you don't, is he unstoppable? >> there is no doubt, that if he wins everywhere with big margins, then he may well be unstoppable. but if you are at home and you don't want donald trump to be the nominee, then the only candidate who can beat donald is our campaign, and so i would encourage you, even if you like another candidate, stand with us, if you don't want donald to be the nominee, because if and when we stop him on super tuesday, that's how we end up beating donald and nominating a proven conservative, which is what it's going to take to beat hillary. >> reporter: what did you make
3:32 am
donald trump? surprise. i think it was a blow to the rubio campaign. but at the end of the day, the washington establishment is to go. this super tuesday is a battle to determine where conservatives go. and i think the debate this week was really some powerful moments of clarity. we saw that donald trump has the same issues on issue after issue as hillary clinton. he agreed with hillary clinton on libya, toppling the government in libya. that led directly to benghazi, led to handing that country over to radical islamism. he agreed with hillary clinton supporting john kerry, he agreed with hillary clinton on being quote, neutral on israel and the palestinians. as president, i'm not going to be neutral. america will stand unapologetically with israel. then he agreed with barack obama and hillary clinton on the tarp bailout of big banks.
3:33 am
be standing with main street, working men and women, then you put on top of that the ethical issues, whether it is refusing to release his taxes, and that's a real problem. >> reporter: why is that a problem? >> he said in the debate, he said gosh, i'm being audited for two years, then he said three years, then he said maybe five years. listen, if there's a problem in his taxes, the voters have a right to know. because come september, october, the general election, folks in the media are going to make a heyday about any problems in his taxes, and voters have a right to know. and the excuse that he's being audited, that makes it more important for him to release his taxes so the voters can see, mitt romney suggested there could be a bombshell there. i don't know if there is or not, but donald is hiding them from the voters and he owes candor to the voters. >> reporter: speaking about candor, he's said some bracing things about you.
3:34 am
i mean, he can be fun. >> reporter: he didn't say charming things about you. >> he can turn on you. overnight he can turn on you and get nasty and personal and virks. listen, i treat him as an entertainer. i laugh him off. it's like going to the circus and seeing the acrobats and dancing bears. he's willing to say things that are patently false. so, for example at the debate this week, he backed off of his health care position for 20 years. for 20 years he has agreed with hillary clinton and bernie sanders on socialized medicine saying obamacare doesn't go far enough. he wansts the government to pay for everyone's health care and control it, is it true or false the government saidhould pay for everyone's health care. we had video of him a few months ago saying exact lit opposite. and what i think the debate this
3:35 am
the voters, that to beat hillary, we need a consistent conservative, someone who has stood for free market principles, who has stood for the constitution, and critically, who's stood for the working men and women of this country. you know, you look at, we talked a lot about donald's record on immigration. there's iranony that he made the center of his campaign on immigration. he faced a judgment for a conspiracy to hire illegal aliens. just this week, news broke that he has hired foreign workers at his fancy hotel in florida. he did an interview where he said you can't find americans to do these jobs, to be waiters or waitresses or bellhops. what ridiculous nonsense. the new york times reported roughly 300 americans applied for those jobs. he only hired 17.
3:36 am
workers. and i think the american men and women are getting hammered right now. they want someone they can trust to stand with them. and part of the reason so many conservatives are uniting behind our campaign is i'm the only one who lid the battle against amnesty, led the battle to secure the borders, led the battle for the working men and women. >> let me ask you about your position with immigration, bill o'reilly presented you with a hypothetical about somebody who overstayed their visa and he said president cruz is going to send the feds to his house, take him out and put him on a plane, and you said you better believe it. but in an interview with jake tapper you said we don't have a system that knocks on doors in every case in america. in one case you're knocking on doors and the other you aren't. >> we don't have storm troopers to knock on the doors of every american citizen. but when we have evidence that a particular person has committed a crime, we send law enforcement
3:37 am
and the specific question was visa overstay. right now current law requires a biometric entry system when you come in on a visa. and the obama administration is ignoring federal law. 40% of illegal immigration is not people who cross the borders illegally, it's people who come on a visa laundry can wreak havoc on our clothes, ruining them forever. sweaters stretch into muumuus. and pilled cardigans become pets. but it's not you, it's the laundry. protect your clothes from stretching, fading, and fuzz. ...with downy fabric conditioner... it not only softens and freshens, it helps protect clothes from the damage of the wash. so your favorite clothes stay your favorite clothes.

3:39 am
as we head into super tuesday, marco rubio's looking to went his first primary state and ripping into drum, calling him a con man. john deckerson spoke with both nation". >> i'd like to ask you about a washington post headline that says rubio's strategy for super tuesday is survival. do you agree with that characterization characterization? >> no, i don't. we're not the front runner,
3:40 am
and i relish that. i've been an underdog in personal life and in politics. they're awarded proportionally. and we're going to move on. here's what's never going to happen in this race. there's never going to be a time when the republican party rallies around and says you have to get out for purposes of rallying around donald trump. he's not a republican, he's not a conservative. he's trying to pull off the biggest scam in american political history, a conjob where he's trying to take over the republican party by telling people he's somebody he's not. we're going to be in this race as long as it takes, as many states to ensure that i'm the nominee and that donald trump never gets the 1,236 delegates which is what he needs to be th nominee. >> your campaign's got and lot scrappier. is it too little too late? >> i don't think so. for a couple reasons. one, i never wanted it to get to this point.
3:41 am
the way media covers politics, people would open this eyeeir eyes and see who he really is. but he's been able to fool a significant number of people into believing that he is something that he's not. he is a world class con artists. he conned all these people who signed up for trump university. now he's trying to persuade us that he's fighting for american workers, but he's hiring foreign workers for his hotels, that he's going to bring back jobs from mexico and china, but he's creating jobs in china and mexico, because that's where all the suits and ties that he sells are made. it's a scam. and we're going to unveil it and reveal it and the more people learn about that, the less support he's going to come. >> you said he's running a big scam, it's a con job. how can you retain the position
3:42 am
>> because he's never going to be the nominee. so i'm not worried about a hypothetical that's never going to happen. >> well, i think you understand exactly what's going on. you pick up any paper, and it's always talking about how are we going to overthrow donald trump? i'm representing millions of people that really feel angry an disen franchised. and these are great people. i love them. and we're not being treated right. the republican party is not treating me right. and they're not treating the people that i represent right. >> let me ask you a question about their questionis question of taxes. what about releasing a summary? that's sometimes what candidates will do, show your income, charitable deductions, tax rate, would you do that? >> i've already released my financials, which are massive, and by the way, we've shown a tremendous company, it's over $10 billion in net worth that i built with a very, very small
3:43 am
and i've already done that, and that's down and filed in the federal elections office, and if people want to see it, they can go see it. and obviously, all of your coe mores have gone through them in great detail and i've been given great reviews for what i've done. you don't learn very much from tax -- hey, john, you don't learn very much from tax now. but when you're under audit, you don't give your papers. many years. every year i get audited for maybe ten years, 12 years. i think i'm being singled out. and it's not a fair situation. but the irs audits me every year. i have friends who are very wealthy, i say, do you get audited? they don't know what i'm talking about. >> it's been raised about foreign workers in florida. the "new york times" said there were people who wanted the job.
3:44 am
foreign workers because there weren't americans who wanted the job. but the new york times said there were people who applied. >> they have to be qualified. it's very, very hard to hire people, qualified people. and a lot of people don't want the job because it's a three or four month job. it's very hard to get people. it's just one of those things. everybody is working. then during the off-season, it's easy, but we don't have the people during the off seenason, because the club closes. a lot of people don't want a part-time job. >> you say people should come back to america, build their products here, have american workers, but why wouldn't those companies say a version of what you're saying, if they can't find the workers here and they have to go other places, why wouldn't they do what you're saying? >> they're full-time jobs. a lot of the people that we've made offers to and where we make offers, when they hear it's a
3:45 am
five-month job, i understand they're not interested. but what you don't talk about is the thousands of people that i do hire. i have thousands and thousands of people on my payroll, over the years i've had tens of thousands of people that work for me. you're picking up one club where it has a high season where it's very, very hard, it's very hard to get people in palm beach during the season, during the social season. >> michael hayden is the director of national security agency said if you ordered u.s. forces to kill the families of terrorists, which you've suggested and to use water boarding as you've also suggested that they would refuse you. what's your response to that? >> i don't know what he means by refuse. i can only tell you, there's a lot of bad things going on. they're chopping off head the in syria and all over the middle east. isis is doing a number of, plenty of others beyond isis is doing it now. all i know is when they start chopping off heads we have to be very frm.
3:46 am
we have to be very vinl length. and i heard the statement and disagree. we have to be very strong. can you imagine these people that chop off heads of christians and plenty of other people and do it routinely and drown people in big steel metal cages, they leave it in for a half hour and pull it up and everybody's dead. when they hear us talking about water boarding, give sometimes we use k-y ultragel to enhance my body's natural moisture so i can get into it a bit quicker. and when i know she's into it, i get into it and...
3:47 am

3:49 am
bernie sanders insists hislop sided loss to hillary clinton in saturday's south carolina primary will not be repeated in the super tuesday states. he got only 26% of the vote to clinton's 73%. in virginia, it shows sanders trailing clinton. sanders discussed the race with john dickerson for "face the nation". >> it was a disappointing loss in south carolina last night. coming up, there's georgia, virginia, texas. when analysts look at that map, they say there as not a plausle path for you to the nomination, what is your response? >> my response is we're in minnesota. i think we're going to win in minnesota, colorado, and massachusetts and vermont, and i think we've got a number states
3:50 am
extremely well and possibly win, including california and new york state. so i think we do have a path to victory. now i won't tell you that we didn't get beaten and beaten very badly yesterday in south carolina. i congratulate secretary clinton on her victory, but john, i think for us, that is about as bad as it's going to get. >> when you look at the progress you've made, which surpasses all analysts who would have looked at your campaign from the beginning, even given the progress you've made, is there enough time left? you've mentioned some places where you think you've done well, but isn't time kind of running out? >> well, no. i don't think so. i think you've got, on tuesday, we're going to have over 800 delegates being selected. i think we're going to went a very good share of those delegates. i think you have major states coming up. and i think the important point is that people throughout this country are resonating to our message, and the message is that super pacs and a corrupt
3:51 am
destroying american democracy, we're proud that we have received 4 million individual contributions, more than any candidate in american history at this point, and i think, john, people understand that the economy is rigged. they're working longer hours for low wages, almost all is going to the people on top. and even if south carolina, as badly as we did, and we did very badly, we won the votes of younger. the future of the democratic party, the future of this country, is involving young people in the political process, getting them to stand up for their rights, dealing with student debt, which i got to tell you is just crushing people all over this country, making public colleges and universities tuition free, those are the ideas we are bringing out, demanding the wealthy and large corporations start paying their fair share of taxes.
3:52 am
working class people want. that is the future of the democratic party. >> but in order to create the kind of movement you've been suggesting and that you want, you're going to need to attract african-american voters, and your economic justice message just didn't seem to hit home in south carolina and in other places. isn't that kind of a fatal flaw? >> well, no question, i mean, let me be very clear. we did really, really badly with older african-american voters. i mean, we got decimated. on the other hand, if you look at the younger people, african-american younger people, and whites, we did much better. so, again, i think o message, the clinton campaign was very strong, remember, this is their fourth campaign in south carolina. two for bill clinton, two for hillary clinton. they had it well organized. they did well tonight, i congratulate them. we came into that state something like 7%, 8% in the
3:53 am
hoe. but i want to thank all of our supporters, the members of the south carolina state legislature who stuck with us. but we are confident in the future. yeah. >> our polls show that one bright spot for you is that a big majority think you are more honest and trustworthy than hillary clinton. what does it say to you, though, that voters may believe that and yet are voting for hillary clinton? >> well, i think people cast reasons. i think, if you look at your polls, you'll probably find that many, many people think that our views are closer to what they believe the future of america should be. our views are closer on economic issues. a lot of those polls come down to demographics, to age, to how much money you are making. look, the bottom line is, we started this campaign, john, 3% in the polls. in the last two weeks, that
3:54 am
had us in the lead or reasonably close to secretary clinton. if you were with me yesterday in texas, you would have seen 10,000 people in austin, 8,000 people out in dallas. we had a wonderful turnout in rochester, minnesota last night. i believe we have a lot of momentum. sometimes the media says this state out of elections, it is embarrassed by a prostate exam? imagine how your doctor feels. as a urologist, i have performed 9,421 and a half prostate exams. so why do i do it? because i get paid. und... on this side of the glove i know prostate exams can save lives. so, if you are a man over 50, talk to you doctor to see if a prostate exam is right for you. if we can do it, so can you.

3:56 am
most ducks fly south for the winter, but one very special duck just gets under the covers. steve hartman found this heartwarming story on the road. >> reporter: a lot of kids go to the park to see ducks. but kylie brown of freeport, maine takes her duck to see the park. snowflake comes here to swim around the pond and returns when called. because snowflake truly believes kylie is his mother, and the
3:57 am
>> i'm his mom. >> reporter: are' not really his mom. >> yes, i'm his mom. >> reporter: how did you first find out? >> that he was a duck? >> reporter: no. kylie is unbearably cute. and since i never did recover to ask that question again, let he just tell you that kylie first noticed snowflake's attachment the day the browns brought her home last summer. >> look, look, look, he follows her. >> reporter: for whav reason, the duck imprinted on kylie and just had to be by her side no matter what the hour. when snowflake refused to stay in the back yard, her parntss had no choice but to give him a diaper and make him a house duck. >> he goes everywhere the ducks are allowed and almost everywhere they're not allowed. i don't know if you have a 2-year-old or 4-year-old that
3:58 am
she will not leave home without her duck. at that point, nothing's negotiable. >> reporter: he goes to the beach in summer and sledding in winter. he's gone to soccer practice, gone on sleepovers and went tricker treating as olaf, the snowman from frozen, and over time, because they both sincerely believe they belong together, snowflake and kylie have formed a bond like most of us will never know. >> it's special even at 5 years old that i know that's the type of person she is going to be. >> reporter: she really is going to make a great mom some day, mostly because she already is. unisom day, he's going to grow up and go to college. >> what? >> reporter: steve hartman, often the road in freeport, maine. that is the overnight news for this monday. for others, clerk back with us a
3:59 am
news and "cbs this morning." it is the biggest presidential primary day of all, with one full day left until super tuesday, a new cbs battleground tracker poll shows donald trump and hillary clinton ahead in two key states. >> you have one hit. also tonight, a virginia police officer gunned down on her first day on the job. under arrest, an army sergeant, also accused of killing his wife. the flint, michigan water crisis. newly released e-mails reveal failure and frustration in the
4:00 am
and the gymnast blowing up the internet and breaking the routine. this is a very traditional sport and what you did is non-traditional. >> not traditional at all. this is the cbs yoefr"cbs overnight news" news". welcome to the overnight news. on march 1st, some candidates might get their last chance. super tuesday brings caucus and primaries in 12 states. for republicans, about half the delegates needed for a presidential nomination are up for grabs. for democrats, it's about a third. a new poll shows donald trump comfortably ahead in the key super tuesday states of georgia and virginia, but trailing ted cruz in texas, cruz's home state. hillary clinton leads bernie sanders in the three biggest states, georgia, virginia and texas. we have a new controversy surrounding trump today. here's major garrett. >> i don't know anything about david duke, okay? i don't know anything about what
4:01 am
white supremacy or white supremacists. >> reporter: donald trump demured about david duke. >> i have to hook at the group. i don't know what group you're talking about. you wouldn't want me to condemn i group i know nothing about. >> reporter: but trump's remarks today are 180 degrees from his stance friday when he was asked about duke's endorsement. >> i didn't even know he endorsed me. okay, i disavow, okay? >> reporter: his rivals pounced. kasich says trump has explaining to do. >> donald trump refused to disassociate himself and condemn white supremacists, and that's horrific. we don't have anyplace for white supremacists in the united states of america. >> reporter: ted cruz took to twitter, we should all agree white extremists are wrong. >> we cannot be a party that
4:02 am
condemn white supremacists and the cue cluck clan. we cannot be a party that does that. >> reporter: trump appears increasingly disenchanted with that party and said he's prepared to run as a third party candidate if necessary. >> the republican party is not treating me right. and they're not treating the people that i represent right. >> reporter: and there's some evidence to support trump's claim. a new cbs news battleground poll found that more than half of republicans in three super tuesday states, georgia, texas, and virginia, say the republican party does not represent them well. that poll also showed that voters in those states believe trump offers the most optimistic message of any republican still in the race. in alabama tonight, trump picked up the endorsement of jeff sessions, the state's junior senator and long-time adviser to trump on immigration policy. >> major garrett, thank you very much. hillary clinton expanded her lead over bernie sanders with a primary victory in south
4:03 am
julianna goldman has more on how clinton won and what it means for sanders. >> reporter: hillary clinton stormed into arkansas and tennessee on sunday, setting her sites on the handful of southern states that vote on super tuesday. and trying to capitalize on her momentum with black voters, who propelled her landslide victory in south carolina. nearly 90% of african-american voters backed clinton yesterday, breaking the record set by then senator obama in 2008. that spells trouble for bernie sanders who had hoped to stall clinton's momentum heading into states where the democratic primary electorate is more diverse. >> we did really, really badly with older african-american voters, i mean, we got decimated. >> reporter: he has wracked up delegates in iowa and new hampshire, largely with the support of younger white voters.
4:04 am
where demographics play to his favor, like okay oaklahoma. >> i'm going to need your help to win the democratic nomination. [cheers and applause] and i'm going to need, i'm going to need your help to win the general election. [cheers and applause] had. >> reporter: clinton, meanwhile, is turning her focus away from sass ders and pivoting to her next target, republican front runner donald trump,p, even if like earlier today in a memphis church she's not mentioning his name. >> i said last night, america has never stopped being great. our task is to make america whole.
