7:02 am
the heat has been turned up on the democrats as well. >> in a lot of ways. it's steamy here and you mentioned a lot going on in the democratic party with the abrupt resignation of the head of the democratic party, that's going on. we have this new poll that shows trump leading the race, that same poll had him many points behind clinton a week ago. we're here at independence mall in front of the historic independence hall. this is a city of course steeped in history. about 20 minutes south of here the wells fargo center where the convention will be held the next four nights. and matt, in case you wondered the declaration of independence was signed there at the wells fargo center, in 1776. i've been studying. >> you got a little mixed up but most is right. we'll be back with you in a second. let's talk about this breaking news overnight, though, another deadly shooting at a florida nightclub, this time ft. myers. kerry sanders made his way to the scene.
7:03 am
what can you tell us? >> reporter: good morning, matt. at least two are dead and the death toll could climb, 16 wounded in a shoot-out here right in front of a club called club blu. this comes six weeks after the shooting in orlando. this is again another florida community on edge. terrifying moments overnight as gun fire erupted at a nightclub in ft. myers, florida. >> automatic gun fire at club blu. people are scattering. >> reporter: police responding to the shooting in the parking lot of club blu bar and grill. found several victims suffering gunshot wounds. two people died and at least 14 others were shot with injuries ranging from minor to life threatening. authorities say three people have been detained for questioning, one of them five blocks away from the nightclub where shots were fired. this morning police say the motive is still unknown, and they are actively canvassing the
7:04 am
area looking for other persons who may have been involved in this incident. the authorities are continuing their investigation here. meantime, the club has issued a statement that says in part, we are deeply sorry for all involved, we tried to give the teens what we thought was a safe place to have a good time. there was armed security as well as full security inside and out. among those wounded in this, children as young as 12 years old. the authorities are saying this has nothing to do with terrorism, but in the light of what's happened in orlando, of course, this has people quite concerned. matt. >> two dead, 14 others injured. thank you. let's go back to savannah now. >> ahead of today's start of the democratic convention there is a new poll out this morning as we mentioned shows donald trump getting a big bump from the republican convention in cleveland. look at these numbers, trump now leading hillary clinton 48 to 45.
7:05 am
clinton led in that exact same poll by seven points a week ago. and the convention is kicking off today amid controversy. debbie wasserman schultz announcing her plans to step down rather unexpectedly. andrea mitchell is here with the latest. good morning. good to see you here in philly. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. debbie wasserman schultz was booed off the stage at a caucus of delegates from her state of florida undercutting the party theme of the convention opening united together. bernie sanders supporters marching in philadelphia demanding revolution. what they got was a stunning resignation under pressure of congresswoman debbie wasserman schultz. the party chair who will step downpour once the convention is over. only 24 hours earlier she was headlining the miami rollout of the new clinton/kaine ticket. >> i'm with her. >> reporter: now taking the fall
7:06 am
for a trove of e-mails posted by wikileaks showing apparent party evidents to sabotage the sanders campaign. one from wasserman schultz saying sanders isn't going to be president. another from a staffer suggesting they play up that sanders is not a religious jew writing i think i read he is an athei atheist. clinton disavowing to "60 minutes" any knowledge of the messages. >> i didn't know anything about it and i haven't read those but i'm adaptly opposed to any one bringing religion into our political process. >> reporter: the sanders campaign saying party leaders must be impartial during the primaries and this year were not. >> clearly, what we experienced during the campaign was real bias. i this i the chairwoman did the right thing. >> reporter: another for sanders who will speak at the convention. clinton's choice of tim kaine. >> his political views are not my political views.
7:07 am
he is more conservative than i am. >> reporter: kaine in an intervideo conducted mostly in spanish tried to smooth over differences. >> after a campaign there's going to be bruised feelings. >> reporter: donald trump relishing the infighting tweeting the democrats are in a total meltdown. after the republicans bashed clinton for a week she told "60 minutes." >> i seem to be the only unifying theme that they had. there was no positive agenda. it was a very dark, divisive campaign. >> when i see this, you know, crooked hillary or the lock her up, it's ridiculous. >> reporter: now democrats are trying to keep wasserman schultz off the convention stage hoping speakers from michelle obama will get them back on message. savannah. >> new jersey senator cory booker a finalist for the vice presidential pick is scheduled
7:08 am
to speak tonight. senator, good morning. good to see you. >> you as well. >> in steamy philadelphia. let's talk about what's going on with the party. was it the correct decision for debbie wasserman schultz to resign? >> absolutely. i think looking forward we need to unify. we don't need folks that are a lightning rod for division. >> she is chairing the convention, include her taking the stage, gaveling it in and out. her statement she plans to address the delegates. you think she should or that might create a moment not unlike ted cruz at the republican convention? >> i don't know the details how that is going to play out but my hope is that we are going to show america who we are, which is two candidates bernie sanders, hillary clinton who have come together and focus on leading america in a unified way. >> to push you do you have an opinion whether or not it would be productive for her to take the stage? do you worry about a moment that shows anything but unity? >> i think that the reason why she resigned was try to take
7:09 am
that off the table and i think she's going to do the right thing by the party. i believe she's not trying to be a point of division. i think how it works out in a way that benefits our party uni unity. >> you think this e-mail scandal which shows the dnc had the finger on the scale for hillary clinton dhaugs disturb this fragile party unity? >> i play independent lots of games where i felt referees were benefitting the other team. doesn't stop the competitors. two that ran a great campaign. hillary clinton got millions of more votes. i think happened was the right thing of it bernie sanders agen. i have seen her incorporate bernie sanders' ideas and one of the pillars important with me, with elizabeth warren making college more af forwardable, the things that we see as major pillars of our campaign, i think is a good thing.
7:10 am
a great contest of ideas and in many ways it was a melding of our party. >> before i leave this, hillary clinton's campaign manager said something interesting on a show yesterday that he thinks the russians who are accused of actually being behind this hack, are trying to influence the american election because they are hacking into dnc e-mails but not rnc e-mailings. you have information or opinion? >> i no idea. i'm not worried about the russians. the biggest threat is donald trump's candidacy and what that will do. >> there is a new poll out that shows trump did get a convention bump up 3 points. but more significantly, a 10-point swing. he was behind 7 a week ago. are you nervous? >> i'm not. this is early polls, i have seen them go all ways. this is a time our country is going to have to choose which way to go. we've seen what the republicans offer, a dark view of america, a lot of vile and negativity, it's time we elevate our nation for
7:11 am
the strength of our country as we face challenges abroad and here at home. we need to be united. not a candidate that will demean folks because of their religion, we need people to elevate our values and ideals. that's what concerns me now. >> and quickly you were a finalist for vp, could have been you on that stage. what was that process like? >> you know, i'm really happy to be in the conversation. my mom has a saying behind every successful child is an astonished parent. my mom was astonished i was in the conversation. it's nice that happened. >> we'll look for you tonight. thank you so much. >> thank you. let's bring in chuck and steve. good morning. let's talk about this whole thing with the e-mails. some democratic disarray. did debbie wasserman schultz, did she have her hand forced? >> 100%. i'm old enough to remember it was the republicans that had a unity problem. >> you mean last week. >> yeah.
7:12 am
look, the only piece of good news out of this for democrats, jeff weaver, bernie sanders campaign manager told me yesterday the best thing is her resignation. and that could calm the waters today, without her resignation today could have been worse or as the assumption, could be worse. let's see. sanders' team may be satisfied that they finally got her resignation, something they have been calling for. i think we have to find out what sanders delegates respond. we'll find out today. >> we don't know whether she is going to gavel in the convent n convention, plans to address the delegates. you can have a moment on the floor. >> in talking to the sanders delegates, they are happy that she's resigning but believe me, you put her on that stage today, they are not sitting on their hands. she said in that statement, you were asking senator booker, she intends not to gavel to order but address the delegates. there is time to reconsider, time for somebody to get in her ear and say you might want to
7:13 am
think about what that's going to look like. if she thinks she can get out of it i gave a speech, that's going to be a scene. >> by the way she's -- may lose re-election. she has a primary, by somebody who sanders supported. that moment offing booed at the convention. that's a tv ad ready to be made. it would be a big political mistake. >> those thinking that this is inside politics, what's the bottom line? if the dnc had been more impartial would that have made a difference for bernie sanders? >> i asked the sanders campaign. do you believe this cost you the nomination? and nobody will go that far. but you know what, go back, remember the primary calendar and the debate calendar, the fact that the republicans were looking for prime time t democrats looking for saturday morning can tune venues, but you go back there and you can't help but wonder if you are a sanders person what if the debates had been a bigger deal. and then you never know.
7:14 am
>> 30 seconds, what does hillary clinton need to accomplish from this convention? steve. >> now we see today she needs a bounce. donald trump look likes got some kind of a bounce. there is a new poll out by the way that shows a tie race at 42, but at least a small bounce for donald trump. maybe a bigger one. she needs to answer now. >> i think it's all about getting the progressives semiexcited about her. >> you see this more as a base election than appealing to moderates. >> now it is. at the end of the day it is. both of them were struggling dealing with their own bases. >> chuck and steve, we'll have many happy returns this week. thank you. we'll have a lot more from this historic city in a moment. we should mention nbc news will have live coverage from the dnc tonight prime time 10:00 eastern. and one quick note. tomorrow i'll be sitting down with president obama at the white house for an exclusive interview before he addresses this convention. we'll have that wednesday morning on "today." for now i'll send it back to you, matt. >> busy week ahead. thank you.
7:15 am

it's 7:30 now. monday morning. 25th of july, 2016. we have a happy crowd starting the week with us at rockefeller plaza. they're happy because matt is back in new york holding down the fort. by the way, we're here at independence hall here in philadelphia. this is where the democratic national convention kicks off today and those are six of my closest friends, matt. i expect big crowds when you come later this week. >> it's early. the people attending the convention are just arriving in philadelphia. i was listening before on our in-house audio system and i heard you asking for a look at the liberty bell. have you found it? >> i did. i wanted to compare my current size to the liberty bell.
7:31 am
>> did you find it on ground level in that building there? >> there's a big crack, did you know that? let us set the scene in this historic city. we're here on independence mall downtown philly five miles north of the wells fargo center. that's where the actual convention is taking place. it's normally home to the philadelphia flyers and the 76ers but this week the democrats have the floor. just like we saw at the rnc, each night of the convention has a theme. supposed to showcase the clinton's campaign vision of a united america. tonight's theme, united together focusing on struggles and future of american families and there are some heavy hitters among the speakers tonight. senator elizabeth warren, first lady michelle obama and vermont senator bernie sanders and of course sanders supporters will be a major headliner at the dnc all week long. this morning republican nominee donald trump is trying to court sanders voters while weighing in on a number of things including hillary clinton's choice for a running mate. nbc national correspondent peter alexander is on the convention floor with that part of the story. peter, good morning.
7:32 am
>> reporter: savannah, good morning to you. we've now moved up into the stands next to the vermont delegation seats. this of course is bernie sanders' home state. his appeal has grown wider than that. as sanders gets prepared to take the stage tonight, what he says could go a long way to bringing together the democratic party even as donald trump tries to stoke the party's divisions. after trying to unite his own party, donald trump look to divide and rile up sanders supporters. >> the choice of tim kaine was a slap in the face to bernie sanders and everybody. i was shocked. i love it from my standpoint. >> reporter: trump unleashing a weekend tweet storm predicting sanders' supporters will fight. if not, their blood, sweat and tears was a waste of time. kaine stands for the opposite. the kaine pick is a sore spot for progressives. >> his political views are not my political views. he's more conservative than i
7:33 am
am. >> reporter: still trump is hardly the kill them with kindness strategy. days after name checking with the rnc. >> just like it was rigged against bernie sanders. >> reporter: ripping into him as exhausted, weak and pathetic. what will sanders primary voters do? a recent poll found 11% back trump. 76% for clinton including sanders himself. >> my job is to see that donald trump is defeated and hillary clinton is elected. >> reporter: trump now taking sides in another public battle defending roger ailes who is ousted from fox news and accused of sexually harassing at least two dozen women. accusations ailes denies. >> it's very sad. he's a good person. i found him to be a very good person. >> reporter: already facing a major deficit with female voters, trump questioning the accusers' credibility. >> when they write books recently released saying wonderful things about him and now they say horrible things about him.
7:34 am
>> trump is teasing about a potential ailes partnership. >> a lot of people think he'll run my campaign. >> reporter: donald trump has not said whether or not a lot of people are right. as for bernie sanders, what's best needed to help unify the party may have just happened. at least according to sanders' campaign manager jeff weaver. he says that's the resignation of party chair debbie wasserman-schultz and that may bring bernie delegates over and more inclined to support hillary clinton. savannah? >> peter alexander, thank you. let's go back to chuck todd on this whole issue. trump has not exactly been subtle. he's going after these sanders' voters. there's a subcategory of those voters who like the rhetoric on bernie sanders. could trump get a cache of sanders voters? >> it's not about being upset at the party. he's trying to woo them on an issue and trump said it, trade.
7:35 am
if you look, that's where there was common ground. and that is where there is sort of a similar message which is, hey, globalization has been bad for america. sanders was making a version of that case and so is trump. this is more than trump needling. this is trump looking for numbers and by the way, he does need them if he's going to win. >> sanders was on your show "meet the press" yesterday. it does seems like he's trying to send a clear signal to supporters that trump is not your guy. >> if you're the clinton folks, you're relieved that he's doing that. he never took that bait. for a long time during the primaries, trump would try to sort of put his arm around sanders and sanders always pushed it away. >> he mentioned sanders in his acceptance speech. >> again, it goes back that there is common ground. >> do you feel like sanders is being a good soldier? even though he registered his discontent with what had happened at the dnc, he didn't seem to be fanning the flames.
7:36 am
>> no, but the clinton folks weren't pleased with what he said about tim kaine. >> he would have chosen a more progressive nominee. >> the night he was picked, one call to president obama and the other to bernie sanders. i think they thought he would say he's more conservative than i am. the fact that he didn't add a but, i think that upset them a bit because it sent a signal to sanders supporters that kaine is not your guy. >> do you think sanders will give that call to action endorsement for hillary clinton tonight? >> i think he's going to work on making a case against donald trump. i think the unknown how forcefully does he make a progressive argument for hillary clinton. >> chuck, thank you. we'll see you a lot. back to dylan in new york with a check of the weather. >> thanks, savannah. good morning, everyone. a couple storms trying to move through parts of missouri and into areas like central illinois. we also had severe thunderstorm
7:37 am
warning earlier this morning in philadelphia. this is all associated with a cold front that's finally going to start to cool things down. first in the midwest but then it takes a while in the northeast. probably until the end of the week actually. you can see this area in yellow that includes pittsburgh all of the way over to philadelphia down through dover and even washington d.c. later on this afternoon and into this evening it's in this area where we could see stronger storms. downbursts that cause gusty winds along with torrential downpours. this front is moving eastward. as it does so, we'll see an increase in clouds. heat and humidity combined with that front is why we'll see stronger storms. that's a look at the weather across the c good morning. i'm meteorologist kari hall. we have some low cloud along the coast and awith our view the temperature now 56 degrees. most of us upper 50s to now 60s degrees in palo alto. and 50 degrees in santa rosa. highs today nice and cool san

outrage around the world. spineless, said british long jumper greg rutherford and if passing the buck was judged a sport, then the ioc showed us perfect execution. in moscow, the sports minister said he was grateful. it comes just days after an independent investigation confirmed russia's state sanctioned doping program. and many anti-doping officials are furious saying a blanket ban on all russian athletes was the only fix. >> it's a level of corruption of the olympic games that we can't tolerate. >> reporter: in the days before the decision, growing concern among the world's top athletes over the state of competitive sports. >> you cheat or you go against the rules, then you're going to take severe action. >> there are a lot of kids out there that look out to us. >> reporter: will clay says the
7:45 am
ioc's decision is fair. >> people deserve a chance to show if they're legit or not. >> reporter: russian athletes will have 12 days to prove they're clean. that ban against the entire russian track and field team still stands but some 20 or so international sports federations now have this monumental task of going through test results for more than 300 russian athletes before the games begin. matt? >> kelly, thank you very much. bob costas, nbc's prime time host for the 2016 rio olympics joining us now by phone. bob, good morning to you. >> hi, hat. >> the ioc was under huge pressure to restore some sense of competence in their anti-doping capabilities, did they do the right thing or did they simply punt? >> somewhere in between. it's substantial penalty but some athletes, obviously reduced number, but some athletes will march under the russian flag and a lot of people including some
7:46 am
who were a candidate for ioc president and used to head the world anti-doping agency, they said that the best message to send as kelly laid out in her report, the best message to send would have been to ban the entire russian delegation. now, with less than two weeks before the competition begins, you've got 28 separate international sports federations, some more vigilant than others about doping and some involved in political connections to russia, having to sort through all of this. it will be a hodgepodge. >> let's make sure people understand that. if we take sochi alone, there was coordination between russian officials. they took dirty samples switching them out for samples that were clean passing those samp samples through holes in the wall. >> they said that any russian athlete who had previously been found to have been doping, even
7:47 am
if they had served a suspension and suspension was over, they were also banned. that would include a middle distance runner who was a whistle-blower and a lot of people think what's justice in that? she sevrved her suspense but at the moment she's barred. but there are athletes from the united states who have served doping suspensions and now they're back and they will compete in rio. so there seems to be no consistent rhyme or reason to some of this. >> last question. ten seconds if you don't mind. any time a russian athlete win as medal in rio, will there be a mental asterisk next to it? >> i would think so. a cloud of suspicion. >> bob costas, see new rio, pal. >> okay, matt. >> 11 short days by the way. coming up, the big thrill that adele just gave to one of her biggest fans but first
