"60 minutes" will be seen in its entirety except on the west coast. >> phil: two things. how blitz and how about the courage here by rob chudzinski to call the deep down-the-field throw knowing they were going to blitz. they changed the protection, gave him time. he hit t.y. hilton. though plays and the will to win the game. >> jim: two things that luck said to us in meeting with him yesterday. chud is a really good play
7:33 pm
on us to call the game. >> phil: he made the play, the old cliche', when they counted. the drive for the touchdown. how about this one? oh, my gosh. off balance. going to his left. in this one, to win the game for the colts. >> jim: when they plast played, rereferenced it before, the game that chuck pagano missed. he was diagnosed with leukemia. the packers were they wore the chuck strong uniforms under their t-shirts. the colts became back from 18 down to win it. luck's rookie year. but pagano kept telling his team that hey, last year there were three teams that came back from a 3-5 start to make the postseason. houston, washington an kansas city.
7:34 pm
game by the colts. they came out and played like it was their whole season. their defense came through big time for most of the game. andrew luck the last couple plays were the difference. >> jim: todman got it started. colts go to 4-5. the packers 4-4. it's a 31-26 final in favor of indianapolis. tonight on cbs begins with "60 minutes" and and madam secretary. for phil and tracy, jim nantz. let's go to jims brown in new york. >> all right, jim, indeed. the indianapolis colts did not look like a 1-3 road win. they get the win in green bay. 31-26. right now we're going to take you to san diego where the tennessee titans and the san diego chargers are at 43-35.
7:35 pm
scott kaplan. >> going through the end zone. forcing the chargers to return. the chargers are looking for the onside kick. they have ten guys within 15 yards of the football. only one return man back at the 20 yard line. that is isaiah burkes, the guy that just joined the team. >> it is a one-score game. tennessee has forced stoppages three time-outs and the two-minute chargers are down to one that clock roll. let's see what ryan succop does here. the deep boot. it will go over the head and trickle out of the end zone and go to the 25 and a touchback with a first and 10 for rivers with a time-out and an ought-point lead. dan: i disagree so much with that kickoff into the end zone. you give the chargers the ball
7:36 pm
had no chance to return that ball. the way they were lined up. burse was at the 20-yard line. he would have had to go back to get the ball inside the 5 or the 10 if you just bloop it down there. and now the chargers get all that yardage. and they feel more confident because of that. when you're backed up deep in your own end, you get a little nervous, kevin. kevin: you don't want to bloop it, either. fullback and a couple of tight ends. firstnd melvin gordon. a good hit. and in the secondary and the linebacking corps. and hit right there by spence. dan: sean spence has had a heck of an afternoon. kevin: so here's what's happened today. 17 points off turnovers. two defensive touchdowns. a pick six and a fumble returned for a touchdown. as gordon hobbles off the field. the running back for san diego has been so important today. he's rushed for 138.
7:37 pm
and they bring in kenneth farrow the rookie free agent from -- and my spotter quinn brennan said his ankle. dan: you think about the chargers losing dexter mccluster on saturday. and you can see he stepped on his own man there. and maybe twisted that right ankle. kevin: chargers today, some red zone struggles. second down and 10. watt is the fullback. farrow. that's upfield. derrick morgan. former number one pick out of georgia tech and limited to a gain of three and danny up to the 28. dan: titans electing not to use a time-out just yet. they know they have -- they have used a time-out. and took them a while to get it, though. a few seconds went off the clock. valuable seconds. kevin: each team with one. and we've got the two-minute warning looming. and here comes gordon. i don't know if it was a cramp or the ankle. it looked like he turned his
7:38 pm
dan: he is a tough young man. and has really matured in this second year. primary back. all three downs he plays. has had a huge day today. and the chargers desperately need him here on this third and 7. the chargers just 3-9 converting third downs this afternoon. kevin: four defensive backs. handoff to gordon. breaking tackles. he's amazing. galloping his way deep in the secondary. mccourty can't get him. and he hits the chalk at the 25. that was sensational. 47-yard run. dan: that's a ballgame clinching winning run right there. how many tackles did he break? right there. there's one. there's two. and both of those guys were
7:39 pm
them. kevin: in what was the longest run allowed by this titan defense this season, the second-year running back out of wisconsin, melvin gordon. a 47-yard run. and a time-out taken by san diego. they've used their final one. referee: san diego, their third and final. will be 30 seconds. dan: boy, that is really puzzling. i'm not sure why you would call if you're san diego. rivers was ready to snap the ball. he had the play he wanted. and now you really give life to tennessee. they've had trouble turning the ball over. taking the ball away from flair opponents. -- their opponents. play clock running down. kevin: sure was.
7:40 pm
take the five-yard penalty. kevin: tennessee titans are 4-4 coming in. dan: that happens after a long run or long pass. kevin: with the first and 10 and a couple of tight ends in. it's gordon again who carves out another couple. he picks up three. he's run for 188. dan: that's over 100 yards more than the titans as a team give up rushing o season. kevin: good note. they average an opponent's offensive running game. 5 yards. that's number one in the nfl. you're right. so you're right. they've not been able to stop him today. gordon is a different back, though. we talked about it earlier in the game. had the very disappointing rookie season. did not score a touchdown. so he met with adrian peterson. they trained in houston this past off-season. he wears his number.
7:41 pm
idolized and he has completely turned around his career. in one year time second season, he has been a star. dan: did not score a touchdown at all last season. really matured nicely. kevin: second and 7. here he goes again. bursting down to the 10. make it the 15-yard line. and about a gain of eight. on the play. let's see what in a gets him. he's inside the 16. he's shy of the by about a half yard which will take us to the two-minute warning. there are no time-outs remaining. and the chargers lead it on cbs. urkey is the giblets. cook the turkey upside down and it will baste itself. i like my turkey carved thick! everyone's got an opinion when it comes to turkey. even subway. our new thick-cut autumn carved turkey sandwich has all-white-meat, no artificial preservatives or flavors, and is topped with sliced cheddar and sweet cranberry mustard sauce
7:42 pm

poking his way with the woodyard tackle and a gain of two and a first down achieved at the 14-yard line of the tennessee titans. and it is disappointed mashus mariota. -- marcus mariota. dan: victory formation time for san diego. tennessee cannot stop the clock. and the chargers are going to hold on to a fourth quarter lead. they had blown three of them in their five losses so far this year. high fives all around. kevin: the chargers will win their third game in the last four. after beginning this season 1-4, they'll go to 4-5. trying to keep pace in the toughest division in pro football. the a.f.c. west. we've got three 6-2 teams. and for the tennessee titans, they've fallen back a game and a half now of idle houston. they had won three of four
7:45 pm
a pick six by flowers. they add dwight lowry, a loose ball, a fumble recovery touchdown run. 41 yards. and the quarterback, philip rivers, with a couple of touchdown passes. one to gates. one to williams. and a big win for the chargers. on the doorstep of what is one of the biggest decision days here with election day coming in for a chance to perhaps build a new stadium, in diego, the election on tuesday. and hoping for the best. the charger offense. 476 yards. no turnovers. one sack allowed. and 36 1/2 minutes. with a 196 rushing-yard attempt by melvin gordon. mariota. 27-43. 313. three touchdowns and two picks.

7:56 pm
>> kroft: the battle for mosul began in earnest this past week as iraqi forces began the long, hard fight to defeat isis there. it was 2014 when this historically important industrial city of some two million people was stormed and captured. today much of its civilian isis and the advancing iraqi army. with turkey to the north and syria to its west, mosul is located on the tigris river well north of baghdad. if there was ever any question what a full on war against isis fighters would look like, it is on full display in mosul, and you will see it in this story tonight. lara logan and a 60 minutes team joined an iraqi special operations brigade from the golden division as it fought isis neighborhood by
7:57 pm
the battle for mosul is already a brutal one and some of the images in our story are graphic. lara logan has our report from the front line. >> logan: when we arrived at their forward base in east mosul, the golden division had just begun their push into the city. (shouting) only 30 minutes later an iraqi soldier shouted, "it's coming to us, it's coming to us." an isis suicide car bomber was racing toward them. one of our cameramen, scott munro, pointed his camera at the road in front of the building. (explosion) >> everybody okay? everybody okay? (gunfire) >> logan: what's going on?
7:58 pm
another suicide car bomber was trying to break through. (gunfire) they'd stopped the first bomber before he reached the entrance to our building. and by now, every weapon within reach was firing. their defense seemed to re-route the second bomber, who disappeared from view. major salam hussein is the commander here. he's proven to be one of iraq's most effective weapons against the islamic state, or daesh, as they're known to iraqis. it happened so fast. >> salam: so fast because the houses are so close they just use civilian cars to attack our forces. >> logan: so this is more of what you can expect in mosul? >> salam: yes. >> logan: a black crater burned into the earth marked the spot where his men stopped the bomber. there was little left of the car, just pieces of metal strewn, and the engine, still
7:59 pm
that's the bombers shoe. you've been fighting isis ever since they took mosul in june 2014. right? >> salam: yes. >> logan: how many operations have you commanded against daesh, do you know? >> salam: i don't know, we're talking thousands. a thousand. >> logan: how far is the enemy's side there? how far from u major salam used a drone, his eyes in the sky, to search the streets for any sign of the second bomber. suddenly, another drone was overhead-- it was the enemy's. everyone was ordered off the roof. (gunfire) isis makes their own drones. we were told this one carried c4 explosives and targeted major salam. salam wanted to show us how long
8:00 pm
open tunnel system not far from their base. it's purpose: to provide cover and run fighters from village to village. >> logan: this runs from where? >> salam: from bartella all the way to mosul. >> logan: all the way to mosul? and how far is that? >> salam: about 25 kilometers. >> logan: 25 kilometers or about 16 miles long. and nine feet down lay the bodies of isis fighters his men had just kil >> we try to know who they are. i mean, they are iraqi, arab. >> logan: the golden division punched through mosul's city limits last week. since then it has been engaged in intense combat and taking back a fraction of the city. major salam knows more about isis and its fighters than almost anyone. his elite soldiers fought them when the iraqi army wouldn't. in mosul, keeping the civilians
8:01 pm
and children fleeing, carrying all they could, including white surrender flags. salam said isis has used a different strategy in every city but they always fight to the death. he told us they have killed 150 of his soldiers. >> logan: you almost were killed in fallujah. >> salam: the rocket go through the window and blow inside the vehicles. and i found myself bleeding. i didn't care if some part of body got cut or something like that. i tried to stop just the pain on my head by any way. >> logan: you should not be sitting here right now. you should be dead by now. >> salam: yeah. >> logan: we'd been together for a matter of hours and had already encountered a suicide bomber, a drone, and just outside major salam's headquarters... (gunfire)
8:02 pm
our team ran for cover. you can hear the snap of the bullets. cameraman richard butler was there first. we were pinned down for few minutes until major salam's men sent this bulldozer to cover us from the sniper. as the light faded on our first day, we watched the major brief commanders about the plan for a major advance the next morning. he'd be leading the assault from this part of the eastern front. they shared concerns about pressure coming from the iraqi government to push forward too fast. >> logan: do you think they'll attack you before you attack them? >> salam: they will attack us before we attack them. >> logan: no one is sure how many isis fighters are in mosul. but the iraqi army told us they
8:03 pm
it's the city where the group's leader declared the establishment of their caliphate. three years after america withdrew combat troops from iraq, the u.s. military is back providing support on the ground and, notably, the skies above. can you win this fight without the support of american air power? >> salam: it will be possible but it will be difficult. our forces will bleed more. critical to your forces? >> salam: we fight for our families, we fight for our kids, and we fight for iraq. (gunfire) major salam has a reputation for leading from the front, and while we were with him, we found that to be true. (gunfire) (shouting) this was the deepest advance into isis-controlled mosul. the enemy was ready.
8:04 pm
major salam's convoy. for much of the offensive you couldn't get out of the vehicle to film because you were under such heavy fire. >> richard butler: you just couldn't get out. (gunfire) i mean they had the... you know, the back of the humvee when we went out was... you know, stacked with ammo. and... >> logan: and you went through it all. >> butler: and we were down to 400 rounds, which might sound a lot. but... >> logan: that'd be gone in a few minutes the way theye (gunfire) >> butler: the way that fight was going, 400 rounds wouldn't get you 60, 70 seconds of firepower. (gunfire) >> butler: it's not like a regular army they're fighting or like regular insurgents or even terrorists. this is, en masse, a suicidal army. (gunfire) >> salam: they used everything. the used the car bomb, they used
8:05 pm
>> logan: casualties were brought back to the base, from the fight a mile away. 16 hours later, major salam's men had taken back more ground from isis. he looked for a building to set up a command post in the newly captured neighborhood. >> butler: i went where major salam had gone in a little courtyard and they were trying to open the door to the house and it was locked. door and they tried to kick the door in. so he immediately sat down by the wall, got out his ipad and was looking for another location close by that he felt they could move to and no sooner had he put his finger on one we heard...
8:06 pm
it was massive and it just... first of all, the shockwave. then chunks of metal. then glass, dirt, body parts, you name it, came raining down. and some people were stunned. it's so much... it sucks the oxygen out. so it's hard to breathe. takes time tt the moment my hearing came back, i could hear the rounds coming in. to their credit, you know, the soldiers that had been blown off their feet were back in the fight. >> logan: major salam lost four men in that last suicide attack, including his chief of security, who was a close friend. that's him behind the major just
8:07 pm
>> salam: these soldiers tried to, they thinking protecting me more than anything else. i'm sorry it happened, but i mean this is the war. we lost a lot of brothers in this war. >> logan: we spent 48 hours on the eastern front in mosul. not a lot of time but enough to know what this fight is about: a terrifying street by street struggle against an enemy who

i thought i was managing my moderate to severe crohn's disease. i didn't think there was anything else to talk about. but then i realized there was. so, i finally broke the silence with my doctor about what i was experiencing. he said humira is for people like me who have tried other medications but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease.

8:11 pm
>> kroft: in two days, americans will go to the polls and hopefully bring down the curtain on a contentious presidential campaign that's been going on now for a year and a half. it is no secret that most americans are angry and disappointed with the process and the choices that they have been offered. that was confirmed last week in a cbs news/new york times poll that found 82% of likely voters more disgusted than excited about the election. we asked republican pollster, public opinion analyst, and cbs news consultant frank luntz if
8:12 pm
this dark national mood by scientifically selecting a focus group that would reflect those polling results. and he did. some members leaned towards trump. some leaned towards clinton. some were uncommitted and most of them had an unfavorable opinion of both presidential candidates. >> luntz: you're going to go third one in. >> kroft: on thursday night, frank luntz began assembling a small group of carefully selected voters. he has spent decades doing market research, sampling public opinion, and developing the right phrases and approaches to reshape it. and he has used the raw data from these focus groups to develop strategies for republican candidates, corporations in crisis, and celebrities in need of image makeovers. he is at the top of his field and a familiar face in boardrooms and newsrooms. >> luntz: so let's do a vote, let's do a vote. how many of you are voting for your candidate? raise your hands. three. how many of you are voting
8:13 pm
everybody else. >> kroft: luntz has conducted hundreds of these focus groups during the campaign with registered voters all over the country. and everywhere he's been, he's heard pretty much the same thing. >> luntz: i want you to describe how you feel about this political process with the election only hours away. i want you to give me a word or phrase. >> not substantive. >> terrified. >> too long. >> terrified. >> it's rigged. >> exasperating. >> circus. >> disturbed. >> horrifying. >> disheartened. >> disgusted. >> luntz: this is horrible. >> kroft: who are these people that we saw? >> luntz: these are 23 people representing all aspects of the political spectrum, all aspects of economic life, all age groups. i was looking for people that could have a legitimate conversation about these presidential campaigns and not just totally smear this candidate or this candidate. and here is my problem. >> kroft: they smeared both candidates? >> luntz: they smeared both candidates. we began with trump.
8:14 pm
>> unworthy. >> immature. >> racist. >> there's no words to describe him. >> nightmare. >> the kind of pig that every woman has always had to deal with. that (no audio). >> luntz: and i thought, "oh my god. i recruited only pro-hillary or mod... or neutral towards hillary." and then we moved to the clinton conversation, and it was just as bad. >> luntz: give me a word or phrase to describe hillary clinton. >> corrupt. >> entitled liar. >> train wreck. >> scandalous. >> dishonest. >> kroft: one of the things that struck me is that i knew that there were republicans, and i knew that there were people that were undecided. but i really couldn't tell who was who. >> luntz: because the republicans are mad at trump, and the democrats are mad at clinton. and the bernie sanders people are mad at everybody. when has that ever happened? >> kroft: frank luntz traces the toxic political atmosphere back to the 2000 presidential election. al gore won the popular vote, but after six weeks and a supreme court decision, george w. bush became president.
8:15 pm
we came from being democrats and republicans to being outraged, to believing that the other side is trying to steal the election. and when the election was over, there was no coming together. there was no honeymoon. and from that point on, the goal has been to delegitimize. not to respect and-and at least to listen to, but to delegitimize the opposition. and now today in 2016, hours from now, it will be tens of millions of people who will believe that the loserul have won, that the election was rigged, and that the winner is illegitimate. tell me something positive about this campaign season. >> something positive about this campaign season. wow. i would say... dang it. >> luntz: you can't come up with anything? >> it's hard to say something positive when you have people who are mad as hell. it's very hard to find
8:16 pm
>> kroft: but luntz was much less concerned about the negativity than he was about the tenor of the discussion. there was a deep, unfocused anger that crossed political, racial and economic boundaries, something he says is much more dangerous. >> luntz: how did we get to this point where every one of you with different backgrounds, different politics, different objectives, all of you gave me a negative reaction? how did we get here? one at a time, no more talking over each other. >> bernie was cheated out of the election, that's how. >> he was not cheated out of the election. >> he was cheated. he was cheated. >> luntz: how did we get here? >> it's our fault. you saw it here, everybody's arguing. i'm afraid to even bring up a point. i'm not pro trump, but i see why people like it. and, you know, if i say that, i'm going to be, you know, ostracized. >> my biggest fear is that these candidates aren't a mistake. that the american people have elected the future of america,
8:17 pm
are deep down inside. i think trump has gotten so much traction at this point because deep down inside there are a lot of americans that feel the exact same way as him. (overtalk) deep down our coun... our country is divided, i'm sorry. we are not united. we are at each other's throats. and i'm sorry. maybe this is what it is. maybe these are the candidates that we want. >> luntz: i want to listen to them. i want to ask them questions, and then sit back, and let it all roll over me. and the problem is people become so angry. and they become so vicious. >> kroft: this is new? you've been doing this a long time. >> luntz: it's never been like this. look, i did this for you 18 years ago. we were talking about the impeachment of a president, and each person spoke their turn. no one talked over each other. nobody yelled at each other. >> black people are actually killing more black people than... (overtalk) >> luntz: today, there's none of
8:18 pm
their opinion shouldn't matter. (overtalk) but you say people who don't support donald trump shouldn't talk so much. (overtalk) >> luntz: it took two minutes for them to explode. it took five minutes to actually get to the point where i lost control. >> and guess what happened with clinton... (overtalk) >> luntz: stop, stop, stop. >> kroft: one way to look at this is, okay, people are upset. and they're just blowing off steam. >> luntz: that was not blowing off steam. that got way too personal. they got way too strong with each other. and this is now my craft. this is what i've done for over two decades. that's not blowing off steam. that is a deep-seated resentment. >> luntz: is this america? are you... look around. are you america? yes or no?
8:19 pm
other. >> nobody will listen to any... >> can i say one thing? we don't know how to listen to each other. you know, we go on facebook all day and we just blast out messages into the ether. but we don't actually take time to see what comes back. >> look at how social media is. i mean, there's so much ugly stuff that we say to each other on social media where we attack each other, you know, we attack each other's views, we attack each other's, you know, heritage. >> kroft: what's happened in american culture? why is there this lack of civility? some people ta media. >> luntz: it's... it is social media. but the first question is: are you going to edit this? or are you going to play the words they actually used? there were people in that focus group who used language that if my mom was still alive and i said it, she would literally cut me out of the will. there's no self-censoring. so we now say exactly what we feel. and, goddamn it, you're gonna listen to me. and that's really what it is right now. you're gonna listen to me. i'm not gonna learn from you. you're gonna listen to me.

dissatisfaction was not just with social media. it was with all media, which they see as an enabler and part of the electoral process that delivered the two unpopular presidential candidates to their doorstep. >> luntz: they've now dismissed all of you for your biases, for your focus on entertainment, for this battle for ratings and profitability rather than information and knowledge. and they simply now collect information to affirm themselves rather than to inform themselves. but when we don't even agree on the same facts, then how can we possibly agree on the same solutions? >> kroft: at one point in the focus group, frank luntz asked the participants to pick up devices he'd provided in order to track their collective responses to a series of news clips and campaign ads. >> luntz: you're going to start at zero. the more you want to vote for them, the higher you turn your dial, the less you want to vote for them, the lower you turn your dial. i want you to react second by second to every word, every
8:21 pm
is that clear? >> kroft: an overlay on the screen tracked their instantaneous responses by political affiliation. republicans in red, democrats in green. when you see the lines go down, they don't like what they're hearing. >> donald trump: i moved on her like a (no audio). but i couldn't get there. and she was married. then all of a sudden i see her, she's now got the big phony (no audio) and everything. she's totally changed her look. >> billy bush: sheesh, your girl's hot as (no audio). in the purple. >> trump: whoa! whoa! >> bush: yes! >> based on those ads, based on those clips, you can't. i mean, i can't consciously and morally vote for trump. i just can't. >> luntz: how can you? >> because hillary's worse. (overtalk) it's that simple. it's that simple. >> hillary clinton: all i can tell you is, in retrospect, if i used a government account and i had said, you know, let's release everything. let's let everybody in america see what i did for four years, we would have the same
8:22 pm
>> clinton: i-i mean, i don't... i mean, i have no idea. that's why we turned it over. >> interviewer: you said you were in charge of it. you were the official in charge of it. did you wipe the server? >> clinton: what, like with a cloth or something? no. >> luntz: that was one of the lowest dialed moments that i have done in this entire campaign. why was that so bad? >> she was laughing. she-she was, like, making fun of it. she thought it was like a joke. she didn't take it seriously. >> luntz: i feel like i'm a child of a divorce. these two candidates, the way they fight, the way they yell at each other, the way they make it personal, it's like having your parents get divorced, and you don't want to live with either of them. and the judge sits there and says, "pick one or the other." and you say, "how about the jury? can i... can i go there?" it's awful. >> kroft: but luntz worries that voter disillusionment runs much deeper than trump and clinton. >> luntz: how many of you would say that you're mad as hell? raise your hands. it's just about everybody here.
8:23 pm
>> i'm mad at the-the corruption, the money in politics, how they appease these big investors, it's just... >> luntz: what are you mad at? >> taxes. we're paying through the nose. >> we're spending money in the wrong places. we should cut funding to the military and spend it on social programs. >> luntz: what are you mad at? >> we're not taking care of our own. veterans, people going hungry, and we're all a nation of immigrants, but people are just walking in and getting social services, not contributing to the tax base. >> they do pay taxes. >> kroft: you think they feel betrayed. by whom? >> luntz: they were betrayed by politicians who didn't keep their promises. they were betrayed by c.e.o.s who left them behind, who shipped jobs overseas, didn't give them the benefits that they thought they were going to get. they were betrayed by social security, which they don't believe will exist when they retire. they were betrayed by things in their day-to-day life. it's election night and i'm the losing candidate. what do you want me to say?
8:24 pm
and to walk away and help the country move forward in the right direction. >> luntz: you lean towards trump. you've said so many times. >> yes, sir. >> luntz: do you want trump to say that the system isn't rigged? >> i want him... that's correct. it's not rigged. these are the results. get behind the new person in charge. >> luntz: what do you want the loser to say to the winner on election night? >> "i know this has been a long campaign. but at the end of the day, these are the results. and we've thrown a lot of mud over the last year and some change. but it's time for us to move on and become better and learn from this process." >> luntz: there is still the thinnest of threads that bind us together and the willingness, in certain situations, to listen and learn. but we're one thread away from everything being cut. and that's why election night is everything. i want to know what those two candidates are going to say. please. your words have power.

out in brazil last winter. hundreds of babies were born with catastrophic brain damage called microcephaly. the question for americans has been when, not if, it would break out here. well, now it has. already, there are more than 30,000 diagnosed zika cases, most of those in the u.s. territory of puerto rico, but also in every state but alaska. and because it is now known zika can be transmitted through mosquitoes, blood and sex, that number is expected to rise. in september, after eight months of political deadlock, congress finally approved $1.1 billion to fight the virus. dr. anthony fauci, head of infectious diseases at the national institutes of health, says the delay is an example of what worries him most about zika. >> anthony fauci: people don't take it seriously. >> lapook: how do you not take it seriously, when you see the babies with microcephaly? >> fauci: but people don't-- people don't.
