7:02 am
blinked. just put a poster of him in the chapel. announcer: this portion of "cbs this morning" sponsored by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." donald trump is now in a his big victory in nevada, building even more momentum toward the republican nomination. after a turbulent night of voting, trump won the nevada caucuses with 46% of the vote. >> marco rubio finished second, just ahead of ted cruz and senator rubio will join us in a moment. first, dean reynolds is outside caesar's palace in las vegas to show us how trump won big again. dean, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. donald trump got more votes than ted cruz and marco rubio combined last night and he did it by winning nearly every voter category, according to cbs news exit polling. so when he took the stage here last night, he was really pumped. >> we will be celebrating for a long time tonight. have a good time.
7:03 am
>> reporter: celebrating his big night in nevada, donald trump declared victory across the board. >> we won with young, we won with old, we won with highly educated, we won with poorly educated! i love the poorly educated! >> number one with hispanics. i'm really happy about that! >> reporter: trump rejected the notion he has a ceiling of support and laughed at conservatives who are calculating how he could lose. >> and if you could add them up, because, you know, the other candidates amount to 55%. so if they could -- they keep forgetting when people drop out, we are going to get a lot of votes. they keep forgetting. they don't say it. >> reporter: long lines pointed to a big turnout for trump and 60% of caucus go-ers said they are angry at the ferguson and
7:04 am
to come from outside the political system. >> one week from today will be the most important night of this campaign. >> reporter: looking past his third place finish, ted cruz took the stage in las vegas, focused on super tuesday and his home state of texas. arguing he is the only remaining candidate who can dethrone the front-runner. >> the only campaign that has beaten donald trump and the only campaign that can beat donald trump is this campaign. >> thank you. >> reporter: leaving nevada before caucusing began, marco rubio watched the results from michigan, where he urged voters to look beyond emotion. >> we can't just elect someone that is angry. we have to elect someone that can make a difference and someone that will win. >> reporter: now, early reports of some irregularities at the caucuses, people not being allowed in or others double but the republican national
7:05 am
controlled kayus. in fact, the ballot was a little confusing with voters being allowed to choose from among 11 candidates. six of whom are no longer running for president. gayle? >> thank you, dean. this is a question what will it take to stop donald trump? it all comes down to the delegates. republican voters in 11 states will hand out almost 600 delegates on super tuesday. cbs news election director is here to where we take a stand on that. anthony, can donald trump mathematically be stopped? >> mathematically, yes, but it's politically going to get harder. after last night's big win in nevada, donald trump has a commanding 81 to 17 delegate lead over cruz and rubio what is given out so far. on super tuesday we will see 595 delegates in play and mainly across the south and full of kinds of voters donald trump has
7:06 am
and evangelicals. if he keeps up this pace, then he can going to have at least 281 delegates coming out of super tuesday. partlily because of the rules give out those delegates proportionately. that means based on how many votes you get, not just whether you win or lose, that makes it even harder for everyone else to catch him. now, there is still time. it takes over 1,200 delegates to win and further down the road on march 15th, there are big delegate prizes in states like florida and ohio. those states are winner take all. the question for folks like cruz and rubio, can they hang on that long? charlie? >> thanks, anthony. florida senator and republican presidential candidate marco rubio is with us from grand rapids, michigan. good morning, senator. >> good morning. >> reporter: congratulations on your second place showing in nevada. many people are asking this question this morning -- as the group narrows, as the
7:07 am
endorsements and many of them, is it simply too little too late to stop donald trump, especially if he does very well -- - >> no. >> -- on the s.e.c. day, the super tuesday voting? >> yeah. i think it's important to take a deep breath here. first of all, the republican nomination is decided by delegates. over 1,200 delegates you need to have and we are nowhere that number of people have been filed, much less being able to win them. and nthat sense the votes happening between now and the 15th and before the 15th all of these states are aawarding delegates proportionately. it's not how many states you win but how many delegates you pick up. there are plenty of states out there in the winner take all category if you win them, you more than catch up. so i think what needs to happen here, though, this race needs to continue to narrow because donald trump, for example, he underperformed mitt romney yesterday in nevada. four years ago, mitt romney got 50% of the vote there so shows a significant number of
7:08 am
are not -- do not want donald trump to be their nominee but right now divided up among four people. >> right now, you have yet to beat him, including the latest poll in your home state of florida. it shows that you're not even beating him in your own home state. at what point, at what state do you think you're going to be the one to trump donald trump? >> well, we will with win in florida. now that governor bush is no longer in the race. i filled up a lot of the support in florida so that will help us. again, as far as going into next week, we feel great about every state on the map. has to be a coalescing here and i think that process began after south carolina and i think continue after our second place showing in nevada last night. if we are going to keep working hard. we are in michigan already and here last night for a rally and headed to houston, texas, today for the debate tomorrow and a rally today. we feel great about the work we are putting in and what it's leading to when this process plays out. >> senator rubio, we keep hearing the party doesn't want it but the people tell a different story how they feel about donald trump.
7:09 am
endorsement? >> first of all, the people in every state that has voted, the overwhelming majority, including last night, 55% of the people did not vote for donald trump and that is helping him right now divided among the other people. i haven't discussed an endorsement with jeb bush and we are friends and i look forward to visiting him soon. >> can i ask you about the issues before the republican people, the ones you have debated. one of your opponents, senator cruz this week said that he would have federal agents knock on the doors to find those who are in this country illegally. would you follow that? >> yeah. well, that is a change of position for him obviously now that he is under duress in this campaign and trying to guess -- change his positions once again i guess to appeal and win votes. the bottom line i don't think this country supports and i do not military style tactics. i do think we are going to enforce the law and people are being deported now. if you're here illegally in this country and have you a deportation order, you're going to be deported, especially if
7:10 am
that is going to happen but i don't think this country is going to support nor do i think we need to support a roundup style of people in america. we need to secure our border and bring illegal immigration under control and i think the american people will be reasonable and responsible who you deal with people in this country a long time who are not a criminal. >> senator rubio, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. thank you. the democratic road to super tuesday still has to get through south carolina. hillary clinton and bernie sanders reached out to voters at a town hall last night. the poll shows hillary clinton leads the race three days before the primary. nancy cordes is in columbia, south carolina, where she faced new questions about her use of private e-mail system as secretary of state. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. yes, she was asked about a new ruling by a federal judge who said that some state department official and even her own aides should testify under oath
7:11 am
e-mail system to evade public record laws. she says there is no base for it. >> i know there are, you know, challenges about what the state department did or didn't do and that will all be worked out. it's just not something that, you know, is going to have any lasting effect. >> reporter: clinton was also asked again whether she would release transcripts of her wall street speeches. >> why is there one standard for me and not for everybody else? everybody should be on a level playing field. >> reporter: sanders was asked if he would be willing to level the playing field. >> i am very happy to release all of my paid speeches to wall street. here it is, chris! there ain't none. >> reporter: in a state where african-americans make up a majority of the democratic electorate sanders accused the republican front-runner of race i'm. >> this birther issue, which we heard from donald trump and others, a racist effort to tie -- to try to delegitimatize the president of the united states. can you imagine that?
7:12 am
choice. >> reporter: earlier, clinton appeared at a emotional gathering at a columbia church. >> she was joined by him the mothers of five victims of gun violence or police brutality whose support she cultivated for months. including the mother of sandra bland. >> i am very angry, but i'm not angry enough to riot. i'm angry enough to vote for this lady. >> reporter: and the mother of trayvon martin. >> we have an opportunity to have someone that is going to stand up for us as african-americans, for us as women! i say my vote goes to hillary clinton. >> reporter:'s thon five women are taking that message all across the state during multiple events throughout the day. without hillary clinton and getting huge crowds. senator sanders is spending most of the week outside of south carolina in super tuesday states where he, charlie, thinks he has a better chance of winning.
7:13 am
severe weather is tearing across the south as a series of destructive tornadoes killed at least three people. the violent storms left a trail of devastation from mississippi to florida. one tornado ripped through pensacola last night. >> powerful winds also slammed a trailer park in louisiana where two people were killed. the storms damaged several homes and buildings. more than 80 million americans today still face severe weather threat. the system is moving from the gulf to the mid-atlantic region. louisiana. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning. 30 people were hurt here. seven critically and two people died. this rv park looks like a disaster zone. shredded rvs tossed like children's toys. this place was packed yesterday. there were people who live here off and on. they work at jobs in the area chemical plants. yesterday, when the tornado rolled through the plants closed and so the park was packed. as the sheriff told me, katrina

7:15 am
panhandle, a tornado tore a two-mile long path of damage. at least six people were injured here. 24 homes were destroyed at this apartment complex in pensacola. rescue teams searched for anyone possibly trapped under debris. >> it just felt like a big train just running through. >> look up. look up. >> that looks tornadic. >> reporter: 20 miles east of baton rouge, the capital of louisiana, another tornado was record in prairieville and ripped down the wall of this gold's gym. dozens of people inside at the time but no one hurt. the storm stretched to mississippi where a 73-year-old man was killed after his mobile home was tossed nearly 500 feet. back here at the rv park in convent, louisiana, there were cadaver dogs being used overnight to search for people who may still be missing under the debris. as of this morning, gayle, there are six to seven people unaccounted for. it doesn't mean they are dead. it just means their family keeps calling the sheriff and he can't find those people at a local hospital.

8:26 am
for severe thunderstorms and possibly strong tornadoes in eastern north carolina, from raleigh eastward in our area, a marginal chance. that is good news. that is an update on the forecast here, it doesn't look quite as volatile this afternoon. however, still warming here with temperatures getting in the 60s now, we will get to 70, there is still a couple of hours here i'm concerned the potential of strong thunderstorms and isolated tornado in the early the threat dies down.

8:34 am
women tend to have their carve events cardiovascular event older at around 60. women have more risk factors like hypertension and tobacco, debates, depression and psycho risk factors. in addition their presentation can be different. they can have atypical symptoms that can be misdiagnosed and treatment is different. either not tailored specifically to women or they are not receiving the appropriate guidelines. >> that is the question, isn't it? i mean, does treatment and the fact they are somehow not as seriously taken in terms of recognition? >> there's an attitude problem and a biology problem. >> exactly. >> the go red for women movement was established in 2004 to increase awareness and done well but 55% of women recognize that heart disease is a health threat. women don't recognize the symptoms or if they do they blow them off and say i don't have time to go to the doctor, i have
8:35 am
or they are afraid or embarrassed. then the biology issue. we are learning that the biology of women's heart disease may be different from men in terms of how they have their heart attacks. the mechanisms of their blood vessel dysfunction. let's not forget the health care practitioners and doctors who are also to blame here, in part, for misdiagnosing heart disease in women and for not as often sending them for diagnostic evaluation, not giving them the guideline related treatment. we have a ways to go. >> other than raising awareness, what else can we do other than? >> right. >> -- telling people? >> women can do a lot. 80% of this is preventable. one of the things the aha is promoting a well women's visit. you go as a woman to see an internist and talk about your risk factors before you get to a point where you have a problem. you should know your family history. >> everybody should, shouldn't they? >> most people wait until they have a problem.
