quite a race here. in fact, if you look at the democratic and republican races combined, we have never seen an iowa caucus so close. it's finally here. >> i don't care if you're feeling horribly, 104 temperature, get out of bed and caucus. >> let's start to a movement. >> reporter: a mad dark to the finish in iowa. we caught up with ted cruz. you said if consecutives turn out you're going win. >> i believe we'll win. >> reporter: across the state, my colleague caught up with front-runner donald trump and his wife melania. >> i think we're going to have a good result. >> reporter: the campaigns are pulling out the stops. trump campaign even deployed daughter ivanka to teach people how to caucus. >> it's a secret ballot, write down trump and you're done.
crisscrossing the iowa skies trump force one. over at camp cruz. >> we're here to pull him over the finish line. >> reporter: volunteers have been calling out for ted. a battle for bodies. >> if they need a ride, they come here. >> reporter: bernie sanders has a volunteer army of his own, 15,000 supporters, cruising the streets and knocking on doors. more than 76,000 touched this weekend alone. the clinton campaign says it's knocked on more than 125,000. >> sometimes you'll show up on their door, they're a hillary supporter or a bernie supporter and they switch over to trump and i think -- >> reporter: and the air war. 60,000 campaign ads so far in iowa. 17,000 this month alone.
after all that, some iowans are still undecided. you'll definitely caucus? >> we'll be there. >> we'll be there. >> reporter: you'll be there? when are you going to make that decision? >> maybe 7:00 tomorrow. i don't know. >> reporter: 7:00 tomorrow? and george n that last poll you mentioned at the top of the poll, nearly half of republican voters said they could still change their minds. it's incredible how many are still undecided. >> iowa always has a lot of last-minute surprises. jon, we'll check back in with you all morning long. >> we'll be checking in on the caucuses all day long as well. we'll talk about that. you're looking at a middle school, one of the biggest locations voters will gather tonight. it's empty tonight. okay, but more than 1,000 people will be packing that place this evening to cast their votes and the candidates are making a big push right now, tom llamas has
been covering the republicans since the beginning. you caught up with donald trump last night. what is the strategy in these final hours? >> reporter: robin, good morning. the strategy is star power. the entire trump family is here. they're splitting up to cover more ground and sarah palin back here in iowa, campaigning with donald trump. the man who wants to take iowa from trump is ted cruz. he's been living on this bus for this month. this afternoon, he hits his magic number -- visiting all 99 counties in iowa. for them, it's all about the ground games. the volunteers try to make 20,000 calls a day. this state is so important for him. as for senator marco rubio he's hoping for one of those three tickets out of iowa. telling everyone he can this is a must-win state for ted cruz. robin and george. >> okay, let goose the cecilia right now. covering the democrats from the start.
she's in des moines right now. se is sill ya, the clinton family out in force all weekend long. and they're planning what they call a victory party tonight. >> reporter: they are. this is the invitation. that shows a confidence heading into today. hillary clinton packing in the crowds. i'm telling you, i have never seen her on this campaign trail over the last couple of days sounding more confident and more energized. take a look at this. just last night, 2600 people packing into a high school gym for her, a raucous crowd but her campaign is telling me privately, they're approaching today with caution, this race that seemed to be hers for her taking could now be hers to lose. bernie sanders overnight telling his crowds he's in it for the long haul. bernie sanders wants to stay into this all of the way until the convention. >> all right, cecilia, thank you very much. let's talk to hillary clinton, good enough to join us on a very important and busy
day. thank you so much for doing this. do you have the victory party all set for tonight? >> well, this is a very tight race, robin. it's really going down to the wire. but we feel very good. we worked so hard. i had a great operation here. so many young people organizers who fanned out across the state. the thousands of volunteers, we did knock on 125,000 doors this past weekend. so, we're very committed, very energized, very enthusiastic. it all depends on who shows up tonight. who comes out to caucus in iowa. i'm urging anyone who interested in caucusing for me, please be there tonight, 6:30. i'll be there in spirit. >> there are so many similarities between what's going on right now and eight
years ago, you, again, are unexpected challenge that you are facing, what are the differences and similarities between what you're experiencing now and what happened eight years ago here in iowa? >> well, i think that i have much better organization to be just really clear about it. i think that we built an organization, using a lot of the lessons learned and we recruited some of the best people that you could find, anywhere in the country, working in democratic politics, i think i'm a better candidate. i think that, in addition to just knowing more about the caucus process and what we needed to do to build toward this night, my experience as secretary of state, really deepened and intensified my understanding about how what the next president will have to face. so, all and all, i feel like it's a different, energized
effort that is really bringing in people from across the state and indeed across the country who knows what's at stake in this election, understand how really dramatic and drastic it would be if the republicans were to take back the white house, they would rip out the progress. we wouldn't be able get the economy going for everybody, get income rising, everything i'm talking about, which is really in response to the concerns and the worries that i hear from people as i crisscross this state. >> all 99 counties you have crisscrossed and we have seen you and your husband and we have seen your daughter as well. >> i have gotten to all 99. i don't want anybody to think my silence is affirmation, but i covered a lot of ground and i have met many thousands of people. and really have learned so much. it's obviously exhausting, it
takes a lot of concentration, but what keeps me going are the stories they tell me. it's something so intimidate, at least in my experience. i try to listen to people and hear what's on their minds. when people tell you about the open heart surgery their granddaughter had and they couldn't afford it without affordable health care. it sticks with me. the months i spent here listening to iowans has really made a better candidate and i think it will make me a better president. >> well speaking of listening to iowans, we are jon karl, he's out and about. he's with voters. a third of voters here are undecided and let's hear what one voter has to ask you, jon. >> reporter: hello, robin. hello, secretary clinton. we're with rob from denison.
you're undecided between hillary clinton and john kasich. what is your question. >> good morning, secretary clinton. as a liberal republican seems to be a dying breed, are you going to work bipartisanly with a partisan congress. >> that's a really good question. i have a record of working with republicans, when i'm actually in a position to do so when, you know, there's a campaign it's a little bit different. when i was first lady, i worked to achieve the children's health insurance program, working across the aisle with both democrats and republicans. teaming up with delay, a very partisan republican in the house. in the senate, i worked hard to get health care for the national guard and reserves. i worked with senator lindsey graham in that case, i don't know if there was a single
republican who didn't co-sponsor one of the bills that i worked on. as secretary of state, i had similar efforts to reach common ground to prove successful. i know in a campaign the distinctions have to be drawn. because we have to give voters a real sense of what each of us wants to do and to hold us accountable for the agenda we put forth. but i'm confident that i'm going to work really hard to find that common ground across the aisle and we will make progress together. >> secretary clinton, thank you very much. we appreciate you joining us on this very busy and important day. thank you. >> thanks so much. great to talk to you. >> you as always. >> hillary clinton on top of the democrats right now. donald trump on top for the republicans. he joins us now by phone. good morning, mr. trump. you know, you have never actually faced voters before, are you nervous? >> well, you have to be a little
bit nervous. you know i like to win. i want to win for the country. not for myself. this is actually my first election night. this is a little bit different for me. >> i'm sure it is. what worries you most? >> well, i just hope everybody is going to be able to get out and vote. it looks like we're going to skirting the weather the weather will be okay. it won't start snowing until aft everything is over. i hope everybody gets out and vote. we have had the biggest crowds of anybody, including sanders who's second. i will say that. we have the most enthusiasm. you have to see these rallies -- they're like love fests. i believe they're going to go out and vote. the theme is, make america great again. i'm self-funding my campaign. i'm putting up my money. nobody else is doing that.
i think that's a big difference. lot of people like that. but there's great enthusiasm in those rooms and all over the state and all over every state. you know, when you look at new hampshire, you saw the polls where there's i guess a 25-point lead. in iowa, i think we're going to do really well and we're going to find out soon. >> your staying pow power has surprised so many people so far, i was wondering what your response is to chris christie and he said donald will take himself down over time. did you get that? >> i hear your fine. >> what is your response to chris christie who said you're going to take yourself down over time. >> well, people said i wasn't going to run.
then, they said, if i ran, he would have have fun. now i'm in first place. chris christie took himself down with the bridge. new jersey is the 50th worse state. meaning it's the last. he shouldn't be talking like that. i'm surprised he would talk like that. because i know him. i guess he used to be a friend until this all happened. no, think it's just the opposite. he's got enough problems and he's doing very poorly in the polls. i'm surprised that he would have said that. my life has been a life of success, it's been a life of winning, it's been a life of making great deals. it's been a life -- i have achieved tremendous success in so many different ways. for somebody to say that, obviously, isn't doing really well right now is pretty unusual, i think. >> you'll be facing the voters
for the first time tonight. we'll be talking to your sons in the next half-hour. thank you for joining us this morning. >> thank you very much. donna brazile. and matthew dowd and when we see what's going on here, it's like an electric-type atmosphere. and it's something that we haven't witnessed in quite some time -- such uncertainty. >> it's fascinating. the campaigns. donald trump talked about it. the voters are now in charge as of today. and it brings tremendous anxiety because everything you thought was going to happen may not happen. we'll look at tonight i think and we're going to be surprised in the course of this. there's an expectation there could be some big political earthquake depending on what happens on the republican or the democratic side. >> donna, what you're seeing on both sides, donald trump on the republican side. bernie sanders on the democratic
side. just harnessing this outsider power up against the organizations of hillary clinton and ted cruz. >> the big challenge tonight, george s to take that passion and enthusiasm that you saw on the campaign trail and translate it into votes. the good thing about the hawkeye state, voters can turn up tonight and register to vote. this is a same-day registration. it brings a lot of uncertainty to the race and it may be an advantage to mr. trump and mr. sanders. let's go to rob for are wate storm traverse its way across the country. it will impact iowa, but notal midnight tonight. that's the latest forecast for the polls, right now your select cities brought to you by

>> yes, he's making headlines overnight, he said he's not stopping here in iowa, he's going all of the way to the convention. not many expected that hillary clinton would have such serious competition and she has and it is, from a senator from vermont. he's drawing younger crowds at his stops. i had a chance to talk to him and his wife. >> it sounds like you want to make a political revolution. >> reporter: he's the democratic hopeful behind that revolution, taking on income and wealth inequality. i caught up with bernie sanders and his wife just hours before the big day backstage after a rally in des moines. i think you said that today, no matters what happens with the caucus you're in it for the long haul. >> absolutely. i think our message is
resonating throughout the country. i got the tell you, robin, all over the country, when i talk about that, people say absolutely. >> reporter: people will timely be able to say speak. what are your thoughts. >> i think we will win if there's a large voter turnout. younger people, lower-income people, if they come out in big numbers we'll win. if they don't we won't. >> we want to see an enlivening of the democracy, here in new hampshire everywhere else, we want to see people vote. we want to see them caucus and vote. >> hillary clinton's chief strategist said you have run the most negative campaign in a democratic primary, ever. >> my god, going back 500 years. i have tried my best, never making personal attacks against hillary clinton, debating the issues.
when we talk about me running a negative campaign, that's absurd. >> i heard that you went to the white house and there are only two people who were not wearing a tux you and nelson mandela, was that true in. >> yes. >> if there's an inaugural ball will you final -- >> i don't think so. you know, a tux is kind of symbol of class privilege. that says i'm really important and i'm fancy and you're something else. >> senator sanders joins me now. >> you told my colleague recently, martha raddatz, tongue in cheek, you got a big ego like most politicians, how do you stay grounded in it's a scary experience because people are putting so much faith into you. it's divot. you know, you don't want to let people down. in fact, one of the hesitancies that i had about running in the first place that i didn't want
to let people down. >> mrs. sanders, you said that's one of the reasons you fell in love his wife jane of more than 25 years who he proposed at a friendly's parking lot after being on break. >> enough, enough. it's national television. >> he wanted to go out again and i said, no, i want to get married. so, and i love you and we're best friends now. let's not mess it up. he had to ask me a couple of times. he said, no, will you marry me? i said, fine. >> reporter: saw the big hug that you gave a veteran on the way out and i know mrs. sanders you said a veteran stopped you all, when you were on the fence on whether or not your husband should run, that sealed it for you. >> yes. when people are counting on you have to deliver.
>> reporter: you're not used to this underdog-type position. >> they always say, he can't win. he can't be a senator. each time he's proven them wrong. >> explain. >> last night was his 100th stop here in the state of iowa. and as you can see, his wife brings out another side of the candidate. >> she taps into his core strength, persistence. i remember, i was working in congress 25 years ago when he first got to congress. one of the most striking thing about bernie sanders, his mess sang is consistent all these 25 years. >> when he ran for mayor, he won by ten votes. he has that tenacity, you're right, he stays on message and he's been consistent throughout. >> we'll see what happens tonight, no question.

trump jr. thank you for joining us. let me start by asking you the question, how worried are you? >> we have been going around the state, the energy is amazing. the love we felt is incredible. people have to get out to vote. there's a tremendous amount of support. >> new territory for your father and we were talking a little bit before, you said this is new for you guys, too. >> it has been. the people have embraced as so well. it means so much when you see that kind of enthusiasm for what he's trying to do, change the game. being a nonpolitician coming into this world and doing so well with this. it means so much to us. >> lot of positive messages. lot of enthusiasm. ahead in most of the big states now. lot of criticism as well. >> it's hardest as kids. you want to defend your father.
he's our best friend. if you're running for commander in chief, you better have thick skin. you're going to get hit while you're in the white house and the oval office. we're proud of him again. again, you have to have that thick coat, otherwise you won't do well in this process. >> running for commander in chief, it seems like since the '80s about your father possibly running for the president of the united states. what is the earlierest memory that you had that your father was possibly going to run for president. >> i think we have seen it throughout our lives. in 2012 was the first time we thought he's going to do it. we were very young in the organization, he wouldn't jeopardize their careers, livelihood to stick away if he didn't think the company had good stewards. he's way too loyal of a guy to jeopardize all that they have
given him over the years. it means too much to him. >> reality check time, your dad wrote in the book, if you want to know when i'm wrong ask my kids. give us something real. >> oh, no. i would say never, george. he >> you are trump. >> we don't understand that word. i think over the years, he knows. he'll do that. he's given us great autonomy to do what we need in the business. it's a lot of fun. he's tough but he's fair. that's the way he'll always be. >> we got to go. thanks, guys. good luck today. we'll be right back.

"your voice, your vote." the iowa caucuses. we wish you a good morning, america from the hawkeye state. we're live in iowa. you see jon karl there at the diner in urbandale. also right now, senator marco rubio is standing by live here in our green room right now. there he is. he was getting a little breakfast. one of the rules on the campaign trail. >> is that really our green room? we got to up our game. >> we had good food. how about the bush volunteers? they're hard at work this
morning, getting out the vote for their candidate jeb bush. we'll be following this all morning long. but back to amy in times square. >> that's right. we're hard at work. we do have a very big headline overnight, about vanessa hudgens. >> the actress with a jaw-dropping performance last night. in "grease live." the amazing thing was, it was just hours after her father passed away. we'll tell you how they rallied around the star when she need it the most. but right now, back to iowaed a r and george. >> thank you, guys. let's go back to jon karl, surrounded by those voters out in urbandale. hey, john. >> reporter: hey, george, we got supporters here at the machine shed restaurant for all the candidates. what blows me away about this crowd is how many still are
undecided. in this room, how many still haven't made up your minds? look at it. you got people here still hours away that still haven't up their mind. it's still too close to call on both sides. after weeks of pounding the pavement, more than 1500 rallies and over 60,000 television ads, costing $33 million combined, it's finally caucus day in iowa. this morning, hillary clinton telling robin -- >> i think that the most i have spent here, listening to iowans has really made me a better candidate and i think it will make me a better president. >> reporter: and it's a tight race for the front-runners. donald trump speaking to george earlier. >> i want to win not for myself but for the country. >> reporter: overnight, we caught up with the ted cruz. are you going to win? >> listen, that's up to the people of iowa.

everybody was getting ready to crown howard dean the next president of the united states and i don't think that happened, either. >> sounds like you're expecting a surprise tonight? >> not that i'm expecting a surprise i just don't think, you know, looking at these polls all year and the fact how obsessed everybody gets about the polls, it matters when people start to vote. within 12 hours of people voting, yeah, i'll wait for the vote before i start react zblg governor, good luck today, good luck tonight. we'll seeout out on the trail. >> george, look forward to seeing you in new hampshire. thanks for being in iowa today. thanks for having me on. let's go back to rob in new york. from the candidates wish gon
