tv   CBS Evening News With Scott Pelley  CBS  February 9, 2016 5:30pm-6:01pm PST

5:30 pm
>> pelley: breaking news, big wins in new hampshire for donald trump and bernie sanders. also tonight, cbs news investigates. can a blood test detect cancer before there are symptoms? the eight-minute mortgage. is it the wave of the future or a throe back to an ugly past? and look out, major, here come the minors. >> why should young voters vote for you, captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. pelley: this is our western edition. edition, and we begin with breaking news from new hampshire. donald trump has won the republican presidential primary, his first win in his first bid for elective office.
5:31 pm
and democrat bernie sanders has scored a big victory over hillary clinton. here are the numbers-- a comfortable margin of victory for sanders after he narrowly lost in iowa. still to be decided tonight is the battle for second place among the republicans, but right now, john kasich leads jeb bush, marco rubio, and ted cruz. major garrett is in new hampshire, and he begins our coverage with the republicans. major. >> reporter: scott, donald trump won here tonight the way he has led in new hampshire almost from the very beginning, by pulling together different part of the republican party and serving as a galvanizing voice for their frustration with washington in general and specifically their own republican leaders inside the beltway. two pieces of exit poll data illustrate this sentiment very clearly. 40% of republicans said they are angry with the federal government in washington. 46% said they felt betrayed, betrayed by the republican party. now, trump in his victory won
5:32 pm
votes of establishment republicans, late deciders, conservatives, and moderates. and he stands as a leader, it appears, of a movement much more interested in backing a disruptive force in american politics than someone who could assuredly win the white house in november. the best example of that can be found in two other pieces of exit poll data, both dealing with the question of the most important characteristics. 29% of voters say they valued someone who could be an agent of change, 22% someone who tells it like it is. trump's achievement here stabilizes the campaign after the loss in iowa. it is worth pointing out, scott, that trump has, in south carolina, like he did here, held a sizable lead in the polls there for a good, long while. as for the rest of the
5:33 pm
republican field, john kasich, jeb bush, marco rubio, and chris christie will have to wait a while longer for the final order to be determined and after that some campaigns will know if they can fight on and some campaigns will know it's time to give up. >> pelley: fighting for survival. now to the democrats, bernie sanders defeats hillary clinton. nancy cordes is covering. nancy. >> reporter: scott, all you need to do is look at clinton's performance among women tonight to understand why she lost big to sanders. eight years ago, in 2008, clinton's come-from-behind victory was due in large part to her success with women. she won among women by 12 point. but tonight, she lost women to bernie sanders by seven point, and that was driven mainly by younger women, under the age of 45, who went for sanders by a pretty stunning margin, scott, 69% to 29%. younger voters overwhelmingly went for sanders, and the clinton campaign knows they've got a lot of work to do to
5:34 pm
inspire younger voters and younger women in particular. the clinton camp anticipated this loss, and about a half an hour ago, they put out a memo from the campaign manager. he says the campaign is going to do better as it heads south, states with larger african american communities, hispanic communities. clinton leads big among minorities, and he argues, "that type of support was not created overnight. it has been forged over more than 40 years of fighting for and alongside communities of color." essentially, scott, he is defying sanders to try to make inroads with those communities over the next couple of weeks. he knows that sanders is heading straight from new hampshire to new york, where he will sit down for breakfast tomorrow morning with the reverend al sharpton at the famed sylvia's restaurant in harlem, just as barack obama did after his victory here in 2008. the sanders campaign argues that he will make inroads with those
5:35 pm
communities as they learn more about his message about income inequality. and it doesn't hurt that he's going to be barreling out of new hampshire with a big victory, a larger, victory, scott, than hillary clinton can boast from iowa. >> pelley: nancy cordes, nancy, thank you. now for some insight into all of this we'll turn to john dickerson our cbs news political director and anchor of "face the nation." john what, are you seeing in the republican race? >> reporter: well, it's just a total domination by donald trump here, and he not only-- i mean, he answered a lot of those questions-- could he win among strong conservatives? yes. could he win among conservatives? yes, and moderates. he won, also, with people who made up their mind late in the process. so one of the issues was did he just have a core group, kind of grab them early, and then late deciders would go on to the others? no, trump won with them as well. and on policy matters, new hampshire is really a donald trump state. 66% said that they agreed with his idea about banning muslims
5:36 pm
coming into the united states. he is totally alone in that policy position. he got opposition from the house speaker, from dick cheney, from all across the republican spectrum. doesn't matter to republican voters in new hampshire. they like it. the tough news for marco rubio is that coming out of iowa, he had hoped to grab some momentum and say he was the alternative, the one alternative to cruz and trump. well, that doesn't look like it's working for him. he beat expectations in iowa. he looks like he's falling short of them here tonight in new hampshire. >> pelley: and the democrats? >> reporter: well, domination by bernie sanders. un, the last few days, talk to clinton people, they said well, it's going to tighten. the organization that clinton has in new hampshire built over her victory here in '08, and her husband's second-place finish in '92, which was so emotional, that would help shrink things. nothing shrunk. and losing with women and also younger voters, those under 30, hillary clinton lost 85-14. why does that matter so much? because if if she can beat
5:37 pm
bernie sanders in the end, hillary clinton is hoping to win in a general election by rebuilding the obama coalition. if she has to-- if she can't get younger voters excited and enthusiastic and lose loses that badly, it's very hard to see how she's going to rebuild that obama coalition? >> pelley: john dickerson, thanks very much. now, joining us for his 11th new hampshire primary, the most experienced political reporter in television, bob schieffer. bob. >> reporter: is it really 11? yeah, it really is. i'll tell you, new hampshire is not always a predictor, scott, of who gets the nomination for either party. but we learn so much about the candidates there because this is the last stop where they're really interacting with the voters, and new hampshire voters take their responsibility very seriously. that's why you see such a large undecided vote, going right up until people go into the polls and that's why it's so hard to
5:38 pm
handicap there. what did we learn tonight? donald trump is back in the driver's seat. i don't think there's any question about that. and i have to say i am not surprised to see john kasich doing so well. he's going to go into new hampshire eye mean, into south carolina in a much stronger position, it seems to me. he did 104 town hall meetings there, and i went to one of them over want weekend. you could really see that he was connecting with the voters who were there, some of whom had told me beforehand they were still sitting on the fence and hadn't made their final decisions. the other part sif jeb bush can get to south carolina, and it looks like he's going to be in pretty good shape getting in there, maybe better than he was in the beginning, the most popular republican in south carolina right now is george w. bush. and he's-- he's going to campaign for jeb. so maybe he can give his campaign a little boost down there. my advice to hillary clinton, i
5:39 pm
don't give advice, but if i were advising, just sitting from afar, i would say get to sowk as quickly as your feet can get you there because that's where i don't see much happening for bernie sanders. >> pelley: the insider bob schieffer. bob, thanks very much. by the way, we'll be updating you with the results from new hampshire during prime-time tonight right here on cbs. tonight, we also have a cbs news investigation into what is said to be a revolutionary blood test to detect cancer, even before a patient notices symptoms rand looked into this. >> reporter: at this health care conference in silicon valley a new weeks ago, biotech pioneers pitched the latest and greatest in personalized health care. >> this has the potential to
5:40 pm
totally change not just cancer, but all of medicine. >> reporter: dr. richard klausner is the former head of the national cancer institute l,d a director of grail, a company developing a blood test for cancer known as a liquid biopsy somebody with no symptoms. >> no symptoms. >> reporter: could get their blood drawn. >> exactly. >> reporter: and you could determine they have cancer. >> that's the holy grail. >> reporter: the idea holds great promise, but klausner says proving it works will take time. >> we just don't have the clinical data yet and we have to get it. >> reporter: there is a lot of incentive. the liquid biopsy market is expected to be worth $22 billion by 2020. another company after a piece of it is san diego-based pathway genomics. pathway raised $40 million in its last round of fund-raising. >> it's, like, the most amazing thing. >> reporter: and raised its profile when one of its genetic tests was featured on "keeping up with the kardashians." >> mitch mulinex from pathway genomics. >> nice to see you.
5:41 pm
ht reporter: what caught the attention was the test pathway launched in september. >> introducing pathway genomics' revolutionary test-- cancer intercept, detect and monitor. >> reporter: available by physician order for as little as $299, pathway's marketing daimed it could do what others say is years away. >> cancer intercept can detect a growing tumor in the body before the patient may notice symptoms. >> reporter: a few weeks ago, we askted pathway to ask them about their claims. before we sat down with the c.e.o., jim plante, they played us that marketing video. we just watched a video upstairs. >> right. >> reporter: and it says the liquid biopsy will detect cancer before symptoms. >> may, may. >> reporter: that's not what the video says. >> it says it may. we don't say "will." we say "may." >> reporter: you don't make the claim that you can detect cancer? >> uh, we say the information can be used to help guide potential early-- early
5:42 pm
diagnosis. >> reporter: we also asked plante about this chart showing the advantages of their liquid biopsy over a traditional tissue biopsy. >> we never say it replaces telid tissue biopsy. >> reporter: this chart looks like an either/or, jim, doesn't it? >> no, it's not an either/or. >> reporter: tumor biopsy versus cancer intercept liquid biopsy. >> it's an additional tool in the toolbox. it's one piece of information that helps guide the physician- patient discussion. >> while it's good to have extra tools, that doesn't mean we esould be using them on our patient outside of research settings. >> reporter: dr. max dean is a isncer researcher at stanford. pathway cites his research as evidence their test can detect cancer in otherwise healthy patients. >> i think we're still years away from that possibility. while we have -- >> reporter: years? >> years. that absolutely requires thousands of patients and long- term trials to prove that.
5:43 pm
>> reporter: thousands of patients, years of testing, millions of dollars. >> correct. >> reporter: and if a company isn't doing any of those three? do then i don't think i would order that test. >> reporter: the food and drug administration tells us it considers tests like cancer intercept a major health risk. in september, the f.d.a. sent pathway genomics a letter citing concerns the test did not have miequate clinical validation and may harm the public health. pathway now has three clinical trials under way to study its liquid biopsy, but it all began after the test was already on the market. r d, scott, after our interview, pathway did pull that promotional data from its web site. >> pelley: jim, thanks very much. great report. you're probably wondering how these companies are able to sell unproven tests. well, jim will have more on that tomorrow on "cbs this morning." today, federal health officials sent hundreds of additional kits to florida to test for the zika
5:44 pm
virus. 16 cases are confirmed there, the most of any state. there are at least 64 cases in 16 states and the district of columbia. zika is spread by mosquitoes and is suspected of causing a serious birth defect. will the rocket mortgage take off or is it a fast ride to trouble? the broncos get a parade fit for champions. and this little piggy goes to s evpolls when "the cbs evening news" continues on primary night.

"let's do the financial crisis "let again, but with apps" dave weigl thehe "washington post" tweeted. >> i know a lot of people ercialreted the commercials of saying we're going back to the days of easy money but that's imply noply not happening. >> reporter: holden lewis of bankrate.com said the median credit score of a mortgage applicant is now 753 out of 850, the highest since 2001. rocket mortgage is just trying to streamline the application process. is this quicken app a game changer, do you think? >> i think it's a game changer in a sense other mortgage companies are going to have to ine it easier to put in your documentation and your paperwork. >> reporter: on the rocket app, r incoter income and bank details, which allows quicken to communicate directly with banks.
