6:03 pm
>> pelley: mark, where are all these people going? >> scott, many of them have no place to go. this side of the city is lower income and congested. finding shelters for people gets harder when buildings have no power and no water. about 800 folks are in shelters now, but the mayor told me he's looking to open more shelters. >> pelley: and you'll have a great deal more on this on "cbs this morning" tomorrow. mark strassmann in the middle of the emergency, thank you. matthew killed hundreds of people in haiti. a u.s. navy warship is delivering supplies, and another ship is on the way. vladimir duthiers is in jeremie tonight. >> reporter: more than a week after matthew rampaged across haiti, elise adette still has no idea if her family is alive. but your parents, your mother, your brother? >> my family. >> reporter: your family, you don't know? >> i don't know. >> reporter: she and her three- year-old daughter have been staying with neighbors, waiting

get much-needed relief to the hardest-hit areas. rear admiral cedric pringle: >> this is an opportunity to make a difference for someone else. you know, it's really a complex evolution where we're bringing in a lot of pieces of heavy equipment, but we're bringing it in to do good. >> reporter: but the biggest fear is a return of cholera. after a catastrophe like this, elise says worse things can come. people will get sick, they're exposed to cholera and fever. the last outbreak of cholera in haiti killed at least 10,000 people and sickened hundreds of thousands more. and, scott, doctors without borders is telling us they've already treated 39 cases of the disease. >> pelley: vladimir duthiers in haiti for us tonight. vlad, thanks. on to politics now. one day after the debate, the "real clear politics" average of major polls shows donald trump trailing hillary clinton by more than five points. and our cbs news election team
6:06 pm
come from that far back this late in a campaign to win. the republican standard bearer continues to lose support of party members who can neither stand nor bear him, and here's major garrett. >> the last 72 hours has framed what this election is all about. >> reporter: congressional republicans couldn't agree more. today in a conference call, house speaker paul ryan told g.o.p. colleagues he would no longer defend trump. "the speaker is going the spend the next month focused entirely majority," said ryan's spokeswoman ashlee strong. >> reporter: ryan told colleagues angered by trump's sexually aggressive and profane remarks in this 2005 video to run from the candidate if necessary, or stand with him if their constituents are, too. in other words, don't feel obligated to support your party's nominee. on twitter trump said, "paul
6:07 pm
illegal immigration, and not waste his time on fighting republican nominee." on the call, some republicans like dana rohrbacher of california and trent franks of arizona lashed out at ryan for dumping on trump and urged republicans to help their nominee recover. on the stump in suburban pittsburgh, trump said he already had. >> how many have watched the debate last night? how many of you? ( cheers and applause ) good, did we do good? >> reporter: trump continued to downplay the video, s rumors swirled more tapes could be released. >> i was getting beaten up for 72 hours on all the networks for inappropriate words 12 years ago, locker room talk, whatever you want to call it. if you look at bill clinton, far worse. mine are words, his was action. >> reporter: after bringing up president bill clinton's extramarital affairs tonight, trump today threatened more. >> if they want to release more
6:08 pm
things, we'll continue to talk about bill and hillary clinton doing inappropriate things. >> reporter: lost in the the nastiness, trump's admission last night he hasn't paid personal federal income taxes in years. scott, even so, trump said he will not release his tax returns or produce evidence, they are, as he often says, under active i.r.s. audit. >> pelley: major garrett, following the campaign. major, thank you. not even trump's running mate is running in lock step. here's dean reynolds. two days ago said donald trump's crude comments on his relations with women were indefensible, today defended the man who made them. >> you know, it takes a big man to know when he's wrong, and to admit it, and to have the humility to apologize and to be transparent and vulnerable with people. and donald trump last night showed that he's a big man. >> reporter: while sources told cbs news pence was apoplectic
6:09 pm
interviewers trump was guilty of little more than a poor choice of words. >> donald trump made it clear that those were words, only words, last night, that he hasn't engaged in any of that behavior, and i believe him. >> reporter: something of a policy gap between the two opened up last night on syria, with trump brusquely rejecting pence's call for u.s. military action against the russian- backed assad regime for attacking its own people. >> he and i haven't spoken, and i disagree. he unusual led to several conversations between the two and to pence's insistence that there is no disagreement now, that the debate moderator had misstated his position to trump, even though it was read to him verbatim. pence is mindful that fellow republicans are abandoning trump at an alarming rate, but said any suggestion he might follow suit is false. and yet the indiana governor is in an awkward position of
6:10 pm
replaced, by pence. when he tried to explain how he could be against trump's words but not against trump, the indiana governor cited his christian faith, scott. "i believe in forgiveness," he said. i am proud to stand with donaldn trump. >> pelley: dean reynolds, thanks. nancy cordes is with hillary clinton. >> did anybody see that debateiy last night? ( cheers and applause ) >> reporter: it might have been popping new poll numbers. either way, in detroit today, clinton was practically giddy. >> what's exciting to me is that we're getting more and more support, not just from democrats, but from independents and republicans. >> reporter: hoping to pick off more of them, her campaign released four ads, featuring g.o.p. voters who have already made the switch. >> so, i'm crossing party lines and voting for hillary.
6:11 pm
smart. >> reporter: her aides argue trump's personal attacks last night-- >> the devil. >> reporter: --show he's now more focused on stoking his base than expanding it. >> and believe me, she has tremendous hate in her heart. >> reporter: trump's troubles were a welcome distraction from the wikileaks release of 2,000 more hacked emails from clinton campaign chairman john podesta's account. the first batch on friday included long-sought-after passages from clinton's paid speeches to wall the banking industry she has criticized on the trail. today's batch revealed the inner workings of her campaign press machine, spinning her positions on sensitive issues like the keystone x.l. oil pipeline. in one email from last august, a top aide writes, "we're trying to find a good way to leak her opposition to the pipeline without her having to actually say it and give up her principled stand about not second guessing the president in public." apparently they never found a way.
6:12 pm
>> i don't think it's in the best interest of what we need to do to combat climate change. >> reporter: despite clinton's recent surge here in ohio and elsewhere, her aides say they need more data before deciding whether to try to expand the battleground map to include a handful of red states, states like utah and arizona and georgia, where the race was already unexpectedly close, scott, before this weekend's developments. >> pelley: nancy cordes, thanks very much. with the spef dumping trump today to campaign for congressional republicans, we asked julianna goldman to tell us how likely it is that the republican house or republican senate could change hands. >> how about it, huh? >> reporter: by holding the emergency call with his members today, house speaker paul ryan all but acknowledged that the tape showing donald trump bragging about sexual assault is now threatening republican
6:13 pm
30 seats to take control of the house and just five seats to win back the senate. since friday, more than 70 republicans, including ryan, have denounced trump, but the speaker isn't one of the at least 27 who rescinded their endorsement. it's a rhetorical tightrope to avoid alienating trump's core supporters, who polls show are voting for down-ballot republicans and may be even more galvinized after trumps flame throwing after last night's debate. >> because you'd be in jail. >> reporter: but democrats smell blood, and have alread cutting ads for hitting opponents for waiting until now to dump trump. >> where did you stand on joe mccarthy? george wallace? this is one of those moments. >> reporter: like this one out today, from ohio democrat ted strickland, who has fallen far behind republican senator rob portman. >> history will judge rob portman a coward. wh what will we do? >> reporter: today, senate majority leader mitch mcconnell said he won't weigh in on the election. scott, one group that is
6:14 pm
which also said today that it will still provide money and other resources to the republican nominee. >> pelley: julianna goldman, thanks. two missiles were fired yesterday on an american destroyer in the red sea. the missiles came from yemen, where rebels are fighting the u.s.-backed government. the u.s.s. "mason" used what the pentagon called "onboard defensive measures," and the missiles crashed into the sea. coming up next on the "cbs evening news," tde police officers, one a new mom, the other due to retire. and later, samsung takes drastic action, as more of its smartphones overheat. ? we asked people to write down the things they love to do most on these balloons.
