6:30 pm
that field is now down to seven. trump beat john kasich two to one, but now kasich rises to become a trump alternative with ted cruz in third, just ahead of jeb bush and marco rubio. sanders trounced hillary clinton by 22 point. major garrett is with the republicans in the next battleground, south carolina. >> the light overcame the darkness of negative campaigning, and i feel great about it. ( applause ) >> reporter: john kasich's second-place finish in new hampshire was propelled by moderate republicans and independents. >> kasich! kasich! >> i think there's a variety of things thaha need to be done. >> reporter: here in south carolina, he'll face a much more conservative electorate, but kasich said he's in the race for the long haul. >> we're going to do as well as we can here and then we're moving on. and, you know, i'm really looking forward to the south. i'm really looking forward to the midwest. i can't wait to go to michigan. >> oh, wow, work wow!
6:31 pm
first victory in presidential politics, donald trump told "cbs this morning "he will win south carolina, and he note his similarities to democratic primary winner bernie sanders. >> i think i am a little bit against the establishment, and he probably is, also. >> what an incredible, incredible evening. >> reporter: iowa winner ted cruz finished third in new hampshire and cast himself here as trump's worst nightmare. >> and one of the most important conclusions coming out of these first two states is that the only candidate who can beat donald trump is me. >> i'm disappointed. >> reporter: marco rubio finished fifth and aboard his campaign plane admitted scripted answers in saturday's debate hurt him. >> i thought i don't want to get into a republican knife fight here. it doesn't look good. but, you know, it didn't work out well. >> reporter: is one of the lessons that you need to bring more knives. >> sometimes you're just going to have to deal with what they're throwing at you. you don't have to start it, but if someone starts it, you have to finish it. >> reporter: jeb bush arrived
6:32 pm
trump is too insulting, kasich too moderate, and cruz is too calculating. >> pelley: major garrett, thanks. now to the calculations of john dickerson, anchor of "face the nation" and the moderator of the next republican debate. john, what are you expecting in south carolina? >> reporter: well, i'm not expecting a lot of southern cordiality. the south carolina republican primary has a bit of a history for being bruising, particularly for the winner of the new hampshire primary. in 2000, john mccain won in new hampshire, came to south carolina with a big head of steam. he had beaten george bush by 18 points. he ran into a brick wall in south carolina, a bruising and personal fight with bush. mccain ended up losing by 12 point. in 2012 it happened all over again. mitt romney won in new hampshire then lost to newt gingrich. state has more conservatives and more evangelicals than new hampshire which means it sets up well for senator ted cruz, but donald trump is ahead in the polls and he greeted ted cruz
6:33 pm
cruz's integrity into question. with 10 days to go, scott, it's not going to get any nicer. >> pelley: john will moderate the ninth republican debate from greenville, south carolina, this saturday evening at 9:00 eastern here on cbs. bernie sanders' win last night was a rout after essentially tying clinton in iowa. today, in his boyhood neighborhood in brooklyn, we asked about his plan for america and whether he can win on the harder road ahead. you looked like you were having fun at your victory party. >> i was. >> pelley: might be your last one. it only gets harder from here. >> no, i don't think it's going to be our last one. >> pelley: but new hampshire, largely white. >> yes. >> pelley: a more liberal population than the states you're headed to next, south carolina, nevada. you're going to be facing african american voters, latino voters. how do you appeal to those people? >> well, the same way we appeal to all americans. look, if you and i were having this conversation nine months ago, what would you have said to
6:34 pm
you would have said, "bernie, nobody knows who you are. you're regarded as a fringe candidate. you don't have any money. you don't have any political organization. last poll we saw you, 4%. how are you possibly going to do well in iowa or new hampshire? well, a lot has happened in nine months. >> pelley: what is your tax plan? >> a tax plan is at a time of massive income and wealth inequality, where the top 1-tenth of 1% now owns almost as much wealth as the bottom 90%, yes, we are going to ask the wealthiest people in this country and the largest corporations to start paying their fair share of taxes. >> pelley: but tax increases, you envision, for people in what income brackets? how low? >> well, the vast bulk of the tax increases would come from or more. >> pelley: what's your top individual income tax rate? >> 52%. >> pelley: 52%? >> yeah, for people making 10 million or more.
6:35 pm
he says, will pay for free college tuition for students and free medical care for everyone, administered by the government. >> it's a government insurance program. people still go to the doctors that they want. it's the same thing as medicare now, which exists for seniors. we would expand it to all people. >> pelley: you have vowed to increase the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour. >> over several years. >> pelley: aren't employers going to start laying people off just saying, "i'm sorry, i can't afford to keep you anymore." >> quite the contrary. every workener this country will be earning at least a living wage, and what that means is those workers will have disposable income, and when you do that, you create jobs. >> pelley: everyone of these ideas is dead on arrival in the congress. >> no, it's not. change always takes place when millions of people stand up and fight back. and what we are talking about in this campaign is a political revolution. >> pelley: the republicans in congress are going to say, "you
6:36 pm
but we're not going to have one here." >> republicans, for better or for worse, are going to be drawn into this revolution. >> pelley: you're going to change their minds. >> no, i'm not going to change their minds. the american people will change their minds. >> pelley: later in the broadcast, we will talk to sanders about the hardships that shaped his ideas. nancy cordes is covering the clinton campaign for us. nancy. >> reporter: scott, new hampshire was just one state, but it exposed a coup of serious weaknesses for her campaign-- softening support among women and almost no support among millennials. >> i know i have some work to do, particularly with young people. >> reporter: clinton identified the problem last night. now, she needs to solve it and try to capture the youthful energy that was a hallmark of the obama campaign and now surrounds bernie sanders. >> feel the bern! feel the bern! >> reporter: part of her challenger is that younger voters tend to be more liberal voters and her opponent, once again, is to her left.
6:37 pm
for sanders last night by more than 60 point. >> for me, i don't really care about gender or race or anything like that. if i share their views, then they have my vote. >> reporter: clinton aides acknowledge she needs to reconnect with women who flocked to her first bid. in 2008, she won new hampshire women by 12 points. last night, she lost them by nearly the same margin. teacher jessie colley was one of the detectors. was it a tough decision for you? >> it was, yeah, it was. you know, i think there's a female draw to hillary for me as well, and i do. i go along with a lot of her-- definitely her values as well. but i'm just-- yeah, bernie won out for me. so that's where i'm at. >> reporter: clinton did win over these three high school seniors who diagnosed her dilemma this way: >> i think because young voters tend to be idealistic, and when bernie sanders promises you the
6:38 pm
of tuition-free college and free health care and all these things, it sounds great. >> reporter: and there's another looming challenge for clinton-- fund-raising. pressure from sanders has made the optics of those ritzy, big-dollar fund raisers problematic for her, while he's on track, scott, to raise $6 million online just in the 24 hours post-victory. >> pelley: great insight, nancy. thank very much. we're going it turn now to a disturbing investigation at an elementary school near washington, d.c. a teacher's aide there has been charged with sexually abusing students. the police say that they know of 10 victims, but that could more than double. here's justice correspondent jeff pegues. >> 22-year-old deonte carraway was a paid teachers' assistant and directorave youth choir. police believe during the school day at this elementary school in glenarden, maryland, and at this aquatic center he was videotaping sexual acts between
6:39 pm
of the victims ranging in age from nine to 13. so far, detectives say they have uncovered approximately 40 videos. a victim's relative called police after discovering a nude photo sent via the imagining app kik on the child's cell phone. kik allows users to remain anonymous. a lawsuit has been filed alleging that the abuse was common knowledge at school, and that the principal refused to take any action. that principal is now on leave, and the school district says it will cooperate fully with the investigation. scott, carraway is being held on $1 million bail, and according to court records, does not yet have an attorney. >> pelley: jeff, thanks very much. late today, the u.s. justice department sued ferguson, missouri, after the city rejected an agreement to reform its police and courts. 18 months ago, a white ferguson cop killed michael brown, an unarmed black teenager, setting
6:40 pm
vinita nair is following this. >> i'm going to call this meeting to order. >> reporter: the decision to file the lawsuit against ferguson comes after angry residents debated the ferguson city council's concerns that it will cost too much to comply. >> my fear is that with your vote tonight, if it is to sign the consent decree, that ferguson will cease to exist. >> protecting the citizens off ferguson should be our priority. >> reporter: the council voted to approve the d.o.j.'s agreement with conditions-- no additional salary increases for the police department or city employees. control over hiring contractors, extended expliens deadlines, and the right to back out of the agreement if the police department is ever dissolved. mayor james knowles: >> what we did last night was take out some things that we felt were immaterial to constitutional policing. >> reporter: the city has a $14 million budget and is nearly
6:41 pm
the negotiated consent decree was estimated to cost $10 million over the next three years. 10-year ferguson resident aisha jordan says the price tag of the agreement is less than the cost of doing nothing. so much of this seems to be around money. >> it is. and i understand-- and i do understand, you know, because i'm living it. we're all living it. but at the end of the day, we have to do what's right. >> reporter: the mayor told us it will be less expensive to fight the lawsuit in court than it would be to implement the decree as it was originally drafted. scott, now there's a possibility the city could end up paying for both. >> pelley: vinita nair, thanks. some laminate flooring sold by lumber liquidators can cause eye, nose, and throat irritation and breathing difficulty, according to the c.d.c. today. concerns were raised by a "60 minutes" investigation into formaldehyde in the flooring. the c.d.c. says the cancer risk
6:42 pm

6:45 pm
with pathway's c.e.o., jim plante, to ask him about the evidence. you can tell me about it. >> before we launch the test, we had a clinical study of more than 100. >> reporter: is 100 enough? >> well, it depends on what you're-- you're looking for, right. i mean, you could make an argument that there's never enough data, right. >> reporter: my question is about the testing. has your product been clinically validated? >> uh, our test has been validated under the current regulatory requirements. >> reporter: which doesn't mean much, since under current f.d.a. regulations, labs that develop tests like these don't have to prove their claims before putting them on the market. it's become a profitable business model. >> they sell. they sell before they're ready. >> reporter: and a big concern for researchers like dr. theodora ross, who runs the
6:46 pm
university of texas southwestern i think that people are not waiting long enough before they send a test out. >> reporter: do you feel sometimes the science gets shortchanged in the face of the business? >> yes. if the f.d.a. were to come in and say, "show me your data," they couldn't show the data, they should not be testing these patients. >> reporter: why not? >> because it's useless. >> reporter: many lab-developed tests maybe useful, but right now, there is no way to know. that may change later this year when the f.d.a. is set to finalize more stringent regulation. jim axelrod, cbs news, san diego. >> pelley: in a moment, welcome back, bernie. senator sanders takes us to brooklyn.struggling with my diabetes. i do my best to manage. but it's hard to keep up with it. your body and your diabetes change over time. your treatment plan may too.
