at his side. former vice presidential candidate sarah palin endorsed him in iowa. the "morning post" quickly dubbed them "lady and the trump." >> major garrett has more. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. sarah palin's endorsement takes more from ted cruz than it adds to donald trump. cruz needed palin in 2012 when he ran for the senate and would have loved to have her support now. trump has always been bigger than palin, as a reality tv star and now as the resilient gop frontrunner. >> no more pussyfooting around. >> reporter: she brings some energy to his grassroots campaign in iowa and deprives his closest rival, ted cruz, of tea party enthusiasm. palin is not the political force
she once was, in part because the tea party movement she helped inspire has matured and moved on. but at trump's side she proved capable of amplifying some themes. >> are you ready for a commander in chief that will go kick isis's ass? >> reporter: she can also help dismiss claims that trump is a phony conservative. >> trump and his trumpeters, they're not conservative off. oh, my goodness gracious. what the heck would the establishment know about conservativism. >> reporter: palin endorsed cruz for the senate in 2012. but last night's event he took the blow in stride. >> sarah palin is fantastic. without her friendship and support, i wouldn't be in the senate today. regardless of what sarah decides to do in 2016, i will always remain a big, big fan of sarah palin. >> reporter: cruz also fended
off attacks from another prominent republican. >> he is heavily financed by big oil. >> reporter: long time supporter ted branstad. >> it is no surprise that the establishment is in full panic mode. >> reporter: cruz dismissed branstad as part of the problem. >> the washington cartel lives on cronyism. it lives on making deals. >> reporter: cruz retains superior organizational strength in iowa and that strength is likely to prove as important, possibly more important, than any one endorsement. in a moment out of his "apprentice" past, trump told his iowa director, you better win or you're fired. charlie? >> thanks, major. republican strategist rick davis is with us. he was john mccain's campaign manager in 2008. the senator became a republican nominee and chose sarah palin as his running mate. rick davis is not attached to
welcome. >> thank you. >> what does this do to donald trump and ted cruz? >> we've seen carson be number one in iowa, and now slip to number three, maybe four. i think that extra sort of 8 to 10% he's sitting on, both trump and cruz look at that like a dog salivating over a good meaty bone. so they want to get those people coming off of carson on to their ballot. that's why the focus on evangelicals. what we saw yesterday between the visits to liberty university, the jerry falwell, the nice things he said about donald trump, to the sarah palin announcement, was a real targeted effort to try to speak to evangelicals. without talking the talk, he's walking the walk. >> is there a downside to sarah palin endorsing him? >> not in iowa. everywhere else in the country, people are scratching their head this morning, what is he thinking? i think he's made a bet that if
he can win iowa, he has a shot at sweeping the whole -- >> running the table? >> running the table. >> do you think that this ends up being a contested battle at the convention? >> i honestly spend a lot of time looking at the delegates and who is sort of positioned in these various states. there are three major segments of the republican party battling it out right now. there's the outsider segment that have landed on donald trump and are really happy with what they've got. that's a third of the vote. there's a third of the vote that are movement conservatives, they fit squarely in there with ted cruz. and they're not going anywhere right now. they're very loyal to cruz. then there's the establishment. that's another third to a little bit more. and they're spread over five or six candidates. so as that consolidates, and it probably will over the first three or four states, you've got three trains running down the track. if they continue to win at
30-30-30, i don't know how you get to the point with one person to have enough delegates to be the nominee. >> not a good day for ted cruz, the governor of iowa came out against him, and the headlines are dominating with trump and palin. >> you lose every day and win every day, down to the wire. it was a big win day for trump and a big lose day for cruz. >> it could be moving towards the nomination. >> in the old schedule, that was the case, right, because nothing stopped you. this time, there's a two-week period of time right after south carolina where it's all proportional primaries. and everyone sort of gets spread out throughout the south and southeast. and then what happens is, nobody really wins or loses, you just collect delegates. so it is an opportunity to reset the race. if there is this juggernaut, i think you see a lot of people saying, wow, especially on the establishment side, we have to have someone win florida which
is the 15th of march, the next big winner take all state, and they're going to rally around either a rubio or a christie or a bush and say, we've got to stop the trump movement. >> it's interesting to watch every single day, rick davis. >> every day. >> we thank you for coming in today. the latest policy in new hampshire finds the democratic primary there is turning into no contest taat all. bernie sanders leads hillary clinton in that survey released yesterday. the primary is three weeks way but the vermont senator is trailing clinton in national polls. nancy cordes is covering sanders' big surge. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. that's a trump-sized lead, you might say. campaigns like to say they don't pay much attention to the polls. but sanders was celebrating those numbers at each of his campaign events in iowa yesterday, saying that they prove he's real contender. >> if you run into people, they say, well, i like what bernie
stands for but i think he can't win, please tell them that that is really not the case. >> reporter: the clinton campaign shot back in a statement saying, "senator sanders is trying to make a case on electability based on meaningless polls." and they said sanders is gaining because republican groups are talking him up, tweeting about him because they would rather run against him than against clinton. and actually ted cruz did say last night, he was asked about this, that he would prefer to go up against sanders than clinton because he thinks a socialist would be easier to beat. clinton, you'll recall, won in new hampshire in 2008, but she wasn't going up against an opponent from next door back then. sanders is from neighboring vermont and historically, norah, candidates from bordering states almost always win in new hampshire. >> thank you so much. breaking news, a terror attack on a university in pakistan. at least 20 people are dead. gunmen opened fire on students
and staff on a campus in the northwestern part of the country. dozens of people are wounded. holly williams is following developments from istanbul, turkey. holly, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the group of armed men stormed bacha khan university around 9:30 a.m. local time, just after classes had begun, attacking students and class members in classrooms. explosions were heard coming from the campus. a pakistani military spokesman told us four of the militants were killed after police and soldiers moved in. video from the aftermath shows the dead and wounded beinger if elu ferried to the hospital. this region of pakistan has long been a haven for militants. this attack will bring back memories of an assault on a school in the same area in 2014 in which nearly 150 people were killed, most of them children. the pakistani taliban claimed responsibility for that
massacre. but it's still unclear who is behind today's attack. gayle? >> holly williams reporting from istanbul, thanks. health officials in this country are reporting new cases of a mosquito-borne virus linked to birth defects. this morning florida has three confirmed cases of the zika virus. illinois said yesterday two pregnant women tested positive there. texas and hawaii have two confirmed cases, including a baby born with a birth defect. elaine quijano is here with more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the centers for disease control and prevention have issued a travel alert warning pregnant women to avoid some of the most popular vacation destinations. in the handful of confirmed cases in the u.s., those infected traveled outside of the country and tested positive once they got home. the zika virus is transformed by the aedes mosquito. it's been determined women can pass the virus to their babies, causing birth defects. the cdc's warning to pregnant
women is clear. if you have symptoms, see a doctor and get tested for an infection. all of the zika cases in the u.s. involve foreign travel. the florida victims traveled to colombia and venezuela. the two pregnant women in illinois visited central america and the caribbean. a baby was born with birth defects in hawaii after his mother made a trip to brazil. and a texas man was diagnosed after he returned from el salvador in november. >> the two cases that we have in illinois are in individuals who traveled, and then came back and were diagnosed, because the mosquito that transmits it is not one that we have here in illinois, we believe the risk to illinoisans is virtually zero. >> reporter: the cdc has named 14 countries in territories in latin america and the caribbean, including puerto rico, mexico and haiti. and they're advising pregnant women to avoid travel there. brazil is claiming thousands of babies have been born with brain injuries. officials there are urging women who can wait to hold off on
becoming pregnant until the crisis is under control. in less than 200 days, brazil is set to host millions for the 2016 olympics. there is no vaccine and no course of treatment for the zika virus. a british biotech firm is trying to fight the virus by genetically modifying the insect. >> thanks, elaine. michigan's governor vows to do whatever it takes to end flint's water emergency. snyder apologized and said he would release his 2014 and 2015 e-mails showing when he knew about the lead contamination. hundreds of protestors were outside the statehouse. adriana diaz has more. >> reporter: good morning.
rick snyder said no one in flint would go without clean water. so far, nearly 40,000 cases of clean water have been given out. that's nearly a million bottles. >> snyder's got to go! >> reporter: protestors outside michigan's statehouse endured below freezing temperatures as they called for the governor's resignation tuesday night. >> i'm sorry and i will fix it. >> reporter: inside, michigan governor rick snyder began his address with a renewed apology to the people of flint. >> government failed you. federal, state, and local leaders, by breaking the trust you placed in us. >> reporter: he also had a message for the agencies he said contributed to the city's water disaster. >> let me be perfectly clear to all of state government. in situations like this, they must come to my desk immediately, no delays, no excuses, period. >> reporter: snyder says the michigan department of environmental quality and the federal epa didn't properly address the problem of
lead-contaminated water when they learned about it early last year. >> the governor didn't do his job. he's been lying all along. >> reporter: before protesting at the statehouse, this couple showed us their corroded pipes. >> it's almost like we're in a third world country. we've got filters that don't work. i don't care what they say, people. these filters, they do not work. >> reporter: governor snyder is now the target of several class action lawsuits, the latest filed tuesday aims to stop flint from all water shutoffs for people who haven't paid their bills. this pediatrician helped identify flint's spiking lead levels. >> there is no safe level of lead in a child. none. it is irreversible potent neurotoxin. >> reporter: it can cause learning disabilities and hearing loss. >> it was entirely preventible. these kids did nothing wrong. it wasn't their fault that the city was bankrupt and it was a cost cutting move. >> reporter: the governor is

straight up the eastern seaboard, very bad for new york city and philadelphia. it may push further inland. with all the data that we have to draw from, it would put the bull's eye around charlotte, virginia, maybe 20 inches or more for some folks. potential for a foot of snow, from trenton, new jersey, down to the baltimore/washington, dc area. as far as what's going on outliout west, a bout of energy may develop. offshore, another low pressure system will make its way to the pacific northwest sometime today or tomorrow. let's go back to you. >> lonnie, thanks. we're hearing from two of the american prisoners freed from iran.

the inauguration of the next president will take place one year from today. republican hope until donald trump says if he wins the the white house, there will be a place for sarah palin in his administration. the former vice presidential i nominee will campaign with trump in iowa and oklahoma. her endorsement of the billionaire is seen as a letdown for ted cruz, he is battling trump for the anti-establishment vote. on tuesday, palin slammed the republican elite for not supporting trump. >> they're attacking their own front runner. now would the left ever, would the dnc everybody come after their front runner and her supporters? no, they wouldn't because they can can't atord to see the st status quo, otherwise they won't be able to slurp off the gravy train that's with been needing them all these year. now this ideological purity? how about the rest of us, right
ewinger gun clinging in our religions and our constitution. >> now you may remember that ted cruz won a senate seat in 2012 with sarah palin's support. he says he will always with be a fan of hers no matter who she endorses. campaigning in new hampshire, cruz kept pushing his anti-establishment message. >> conservatives are uniting behind our campaign and we will see, like the empire strikes back, to the establishment will strike back because they don't want an end to the cronyism and gravy train from washington. >> a poll in iowa said that republicans felt betrayed by poll tegss. and another drama shows bernie sanders with a kmancommag lead over hillary clinton.

not who you'll be, and antidot to the college admissions mania. this has been an issue a that you eve written about before? >> the report can't command change, but the report is signed off on, endorsed by so many people, but it clearly indicates a desire and an intention to do things differently. you're going to see the admissions process become less slave to the are session so far. you're going to see a lot of schools saying s.a.t.s and a.c.t.s optional. what they're trying to do is get kids away from an incredibly dutiful script following during high school and judge them by the way they commit to their passions. >> this is a really good deal, because you said it could put an
end to that manic resume packing. they'll pay attention to other things like what, frank? >> pay attention to things like civic engagement. one of the things this report goes into at great length that i think was very interesting, it's telling admissions officers to stop being impressed by the name of a charitable organization. let's figure out what that charity work was genuine and heart felt instead of just checking off a box. >> the report addresses the connection between academic pressure and mental health issues and it says many middle and upper income communities, rates of depression, delinquencies, substance abuse and depression tend to be considerably higher, why is that? >> because kids feel that they
have to approach admissions in a more ferocious way. they're getting that message fromheed a administratorings and their parents. it's mott only what that we see those high rates of mental illness of kids in high school, but every college is reporting record numbers of students coming into that mental health offices in colleges. >> and that's not leaving behind kids that don't have the privilege that some kids have. >> we're living in a country with yawning -- what's our part in social mobility and how do we remedy that? one then you're seeing kids stepping away from standardized tests family background and the
income of your family. so they're trying to say what are the real marks of your potential and not just privilege. >> so maybe a kid that has to stay home and help the family or has a part-time job because he has to help the family and not be engaged in civil service. >> so how realistic is this, frank, that you think that this will actually happen? >> i don't think we're going to see an overwhelming sea change in oned a megss cycle. if you look at the thub of people that signed off on this, if you look at the news conference, someone from yale will be there, some from m.i.t., i think over the next five years we'll see big changes. >> you also bring about a 2014 survey of 10,000 middle and high school students about what they thought was important. what did they find? >> the author of the research asked kids to rank what is more
important, caring for others or achievement. you're supposed to say something high-minded so if you're admitting off the bat, i don't care about others, i care about my happiness and achievement. >> does it have anything to do with background? >> i don't know if they broke it down that way. but what they're asking in this new report is to what extent does the college admissions process bring about those values and exacerbate the problem and to the focus on individual achievement and where do i rate as an individual in society. vice president joe biden lost his son beau to cancer and now he's leading the mission to come up with a cure. he'll share what,,

what happened to the other eight or nine books? i'm just kidding. >> really? >> we have the playoffs. >> yeah. >> we have peyton manning and tom brady. break it down. >> the funny thing is you always hear about brady versus manning. i always thought about it as manning versus bill belichick. they are not guarding each other and not in the low post in basketball. interesting to watch peyton play now and to go to another sport, is like somebody who is a great fastball pitcher in baseball and now throwing melons and cantaloupe. he clearly can't throw the ball and he is getting by on guiel. the only advantage they have on sunday, i think, is that the game is in denver instead of foxborou foxborough. >> how about their defense? >> broncos defense, i believe, has been the most formidable in the sport this year. we saw what happened when brock osweiler was the quarterback against the patriots before and the denver broncos defense beat
brady. it's hard to do that twice in the same year. >> you're predicting the patriots? >> i do. only for my own twisted amusement. because the patriots make everybody so crazy, outside of, like, a six-state area in new england. so they are always being accused of something and i just love the fact that it makes most of the country this passionate. >> your twisted amusement is fun to watch. your latest column about the nfl coin toss and you're not a fan because? >> a billion dollar industry, the biggest we have ever had in sports in this country, often comes down to a flip of the coin. you tell me another place in sports -- then they don't use a real coin! >> the question whether it's flipped or not as we had this past weekend. >> all i know is that you can make a case that aaron rodgers might be the best player in football. two years in a row, because of a coin flip, he never gets to touch the ball in overtime. that is a bone-headed system. >> right. what would you replace it with?

you would think he would be thrilled when his father comes back into his life. it's not that easy. this is a book that kind of tips the whole father/son and sports thing. >> you coached all of your kids? >> i tried not to screw them up but let me tell you something. these books are written in that spirit. there's not a time, norah, when i go by a field or a gym where i coached and wouldn't give up a zillion dollars to have one more friday night or saturday afternoon back. >> who is the audience for your books? >> oh, it starts in middle grade. we go from, like, 8 to 15. and the great thing is once i get them, they stay with me. i was telling gayle before the show today, i'll be out in public now and i'll see somebody who i know is a mom and coming towards me. i know they are not going to want to talk about my dopey newspaper column or tv. they are are going to tell me a story how i got their kids to want to read. then they will say, you probably get tired of hearing that. i said, not at all!
>> mike, what is so good about the book in this particular book, you have boys talking to each other. you never see boys talking to each other about their problems and their vulnerabilities. i think that is an important message to send to young boys. >> i have three sons and they were like that. i mean, our dinner table was, you know, sometimes sounded like a counseling session. people would say the kids in your book sound real. i think they ought to because it came out of the back seat of my car, our dinner table, sidelines, and locker rooms. >> do you want your kids to play football? >> man i tell you what, charlie. i would have to think long and hard about that. fortunately, my sons were all pacifists and his uniform never got dirty and my wife never had to wash it. >> bottom line, you have reservations? >> with cognitive difficulties of ex-players, how can you not? >> thank you, mike. >> should we mention the book one more time? >> yes!
