>> tuberculosis mostly affects the lungs and it is spread through the air. the hospital is taking all precautions, especially since babies are the most at risk. hundreds of patients who visited the hospital with their young children are now being told to start their kids on a preventative tb medication. the self-proclaimed most-hated ceo in the world is at it again. you might remember in september martin shrelly's company hiked prices for a cancer pill from $13 to $750 each. now in his new position at calo bios in south san francisco, he announced plans to buy a federal voucher for a life-saving drug that his company can sell for hundreds of millions of dollars. critics say that could mean the life-saving drug costs a lot more or never gets developed. still ahead on "today in the bay," a swarm of bad santas causing a nightmare before christmas. the pushback against santa-con in the bay area. anthony. >> they were everywhere

"today in the bay" is back in two minutes. coming up, the debate over muslim extremism continues across the thagnation. and now a state is that the candidate from california is taking center stage in the conversation. our political analyst larry gerston joins us live next.
never boring fun. the why can't it smell like this all the time fun. the learning the virtue of sharing fun. why let someone else have all the fun? that's no fun. unleash the power of dough. give it a pop. took a california twist last week when u.s. senat well, the debate over muslim extremism took a california twist last week when u.s. senate candidate loretta sanchez claimed as many as 20% of the
world's 1.6 billion muslims support a caliphate and would use terrorism to achieve it. nbc bay area political analyst larry gerston joins us now. larry, sanchez is a democrat, right? >> yep. >> certainly not a new viewpoint but it seems to be completely out of line with her party. >> yeah. that's what makes it so interesting. as you said, sanchez is a democrat, okay. and she's a member of the house of representatives. but she may be closer, in fact, to republican values here on this issue than democratic values. state data is hard to find on this kind of question. how many muslims are terrorist and whatnot. but there are recent national surveys on whether all muslims should be banned from entering the united states. that's the proposal you may remember that's been put forward by donald trump. according to a new nbc/"wall street journal" poll, americans reject that proposal by a more than 2-1 margin. >> what do the numbers show about where democrats and republicans stand on this issue, and how can sanchez capitalize on the differences? >> it gets interesting.
according to the poll that we're talking about, there are stark differences between democrats and republicans. take a look at this data here. pretty interesting. as we can see, three-fourths of all the democrats oppose this issue, okay? oppose trump's idea. but a plurality of republicans support it. now, sanchez hasn't said that she endorses trump's proposal, per se, but it would seem that supporters of that would be a lot closer to her than harris, particularly given the comment she's made between 5% and 20% being terrorists. >> as we know, sanchez is running against carmela harris. this sounds like it's going to be a major differentiator between the two. >> i think so. although there are republican candidates for the u.s. senate, most observers, they view this race as a contest between democr democrats. and harris is the more liberal and has the backing of most elected democrats. although in the bay area congresswoman anna esche and sam
farr, they back sanchez. given that a democrat is most likely to win the race for the reasons we've talked about, it may well be that many republicans have got to go somewhere. so they may vote for sanchez. now, the more conservative of the two in this case. so clearly, on the issue of muslim extremism, sanchez's ideas, yeah, they seem to be closer to most republicans than democrats. >> it sounds very strategic. >> yeah. >> right. okay. well, how realistic is her claim that somewhere between 5% and 20% of muslims would resort to terrorism and violence? where does she even get those numbers, and are they legit? >> that's a good question. in some respects, this is the most important question of all. why? because as we try to keep perspective on this terrorism issue, we've all gone crazy jumping at every piece of data. here's the fact. a study of muslims estimates that less than 1% of all muslims
are there and at risk for becoming radicals, muslim radicals. now, that's considerably less than the figures cited by congresswoman sanchez who admits her numbers come from anecdotal things from talking with people. and it's a reminder, vicky, it's such an important reminder for us all that it's very important to understand the reliability of data in an argument. we just can't be tossing it around. whether it's about politics or anything else, always understand the source of information before we start to make certain claims. >> well, that's good. as you said, sanchez are saying her numbers of 5 to 20% come from anecdotal numbers of just talking to people. that's not quite as reliable as you're citing, which is european intelligence. >> and they're closer to muslim extremism than we are. that also gives gravitas to what they're saying. >> we don't want to understate the problem or overstate the problem. >> it's so easy to run away with emotions on these things. and that's why we have to remain grounded, whatever side you're
on. just remain grounded and speak to what you're seeing always from facts. >> larry gerston, that's why we love you and have you on the show. thank you so much for your insight. stay with us. much more ahead on "today in the bay." coming, why hit the gym when you can simply sip red wine? a new study suggests exactly that. we will explain next. anthony. >> i'm all in. we're looking at some rain this morning. coming across the parts of the north bay stretching into the south bay now. we will see some gusty winds through the day as well. we're back with that full microclimate weather forecast alert. ==vicky/take vo== a special
welcome back. here on this sunday. we start you off with a shot of our radaradar. we do have heavy rain pushing in. a lot of it across parts of the north bay where we start to see it pick up in intensity. especially north of santa rosa now. in fact, we have one little cell making its way toward san francisco right over mill valley now. that will be pushing into the city with the next couple of minutes. eventually in the south bay, we'll see heavy rain as well. but the thing we won't see, the gusty winds. we have a wind advisory in effect until 10:00 this evening starting at 8:00 this morning. it does include san francisco, the peninsula, the inner bay, and does not include the silicon valley, does not include the tri-valley or napa valley. but it does include the inner bay and some of the higher hilltops along the coastline. as this rain moves in winds start to pick up as well. and we're expecting our winds to gust really all day long till about 10:00. the thing we'll see first is the
rain. in fact, this is about 10:30 in the morning right across parts of the south bay and tri-valley. afternoon, we do start to clear out. we'll see another band of some showers push through, but it won't be as widespread. more isolated thunderstorms this afternoon. and we'll actually see a good mix of sunshine in there as well. once we get towards 8:00, 9:00 this evening, showers move out. along that time frame as well, we'll start to see winds move out as well. but about 9:00 this morning, still gusty up towards napa. winds up to 40 miles per hour there. as we head towards 11:00, half moon bay, san francisco, gusts from 35 to 45 miles per hour as well. and even in the south bay today, we'll see a few gusts up to 30 miles per hour. aga again, that doesn't really warrant an advisory. we do have that rain. expecting three-quarters of an inch across parts of the south bay. about a half inch for san francisco. half inch for the tri-valley and a half inch to three-quart eers across the north bay. overall a gray day for the first
half. that's going to mean for temperatures that will stay cool today. we're only talking mid-50s. 56 degrees, 57 anywhere from that we'll see from the north bay, even into the south bay today. so it's going to be a cool day. once this system pulls through, tonight, temperatures actually fall back into the 30s for our inland valley. near freezing tonight to start the day tomorrow. definitely want to make sure you've got the little ones bundled up. as we head towards wednesday and thursday, another system starts to move this way. it won't actually arrive until friday and saturday. of this upcoming week. we will have a few days to dry out. tomorrow will be a dry day. same for tuesday and wednesday. even in san francisco, once we get rid of this rain today, we'll see some sunshine as we head towards monday, tuesday and wednesday. thursday, our next system starts to pull back in. that could be with us until friday or saturday depending on how fast it moves through. overall, though, the system today, it's going to pull through pretty fast. we'll be clear by about this afternoon and we'll see some sunshine. but the wind is really going to be strong, really all day long.
that's why we have that advisory because it's going to be windy all the way till 10:00 this evening. once the ground gets wet, that's when we'll be at risk for seeing downed trees, even some downed power lines as well, vicky. >> yeah, i'm thinking of the small dogs. when we walk our dog and it's windy. also leaves. >> yeah. >> think of those pets, too. >> another good point, too, the leaves, may want to clean out your storm drains while you have the time now. >> anthony, thank you so much. useful information. a special honor for uber. a woman in india named her newborn after the bay area company when an uber driver came to her rescue. she went into labor thursday. she was unable to get an ambulance. so she called uber. they didn't make it on time. she ended up delivering the baby in the car. the uber driver rushed the mother and newborn son to the hospital. everybody's doing great. the family is holding an official naming ceremony today with the driver on hand. for the big day. i wonder what the driver's name was. maybe that would have been a better name than uber. but hey. this could be good news for wineries and wine lovers. a new study suggests drinking
one glass of red wine may have the same effect on your body as a one-hour workout at the gym. i don't know how this could be possible, but university of alberta scientists say it works. a substance in red wine is thought to improve physical performance and muscle strength so much that it is similar to exercise. scientists say their breakthrough could also help people who are physically unable to exercise by helping them build muscle mass. that being said, to be safe, probably still a good idea to hit the gym every once in a while, if you can. >> yeah. >> but, i mean, as if anybody needed another reason for a glass of red wine. >> hey, sign me up. >> thanks so much for making us a part of your morning. no 5:00 or 6:00 newscast tonight. instead, ts "sunday night, football night in america." and a special edition of nbc bay area news follows that game at 8:30. and of course, we'll be back on at 11:00 tonight. until then, stay up to date on nbcbayarea.com. of course, our app, too, to tell you what the weather's going to do for you today. have a great morning. >> all right. see you.
this sunday morning, donald trump's call to temporarily ban muslims from entering the country may have thrilled his supporters but it's disgust it had establishment. >> you really have no choice. it's so out of control. it's so terrible. >> why republicans fear a ticket headed by trump is a ticket headed for disaster. plus, could we be looking at a contested convention? our new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll on the republican race shows a serious three-way contest developing with new signs that ted cruz and marco rubio are on the move. rubio joins me exclusively. also, a global deal on climate change. i'll talk to secretary of state john kerry about the agreement in paris a
