this morning on "world news now," campaign surprises from iowa. the humbling moment for donald trump. the big shift for the republicans, and the drama from the democrats. >> speaking of the democrats and hillary clinton delivering a victory speech when the race was too close to call? we're live in des moines with extensive political coverage. >> and new this half hour, prospective jurors got a big surprise. >> they got notices to phone in for duty but the number was not for the courthouse. they were in for an x rated call. >> uh-oh. later in "the skinny" from a group date to a memorable cocktail party. it was an unforgettable night on "is the bachelor." our senior analyst is here with his exclusive kiss count on this tuesday, february 2nd. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now."
>> we say good morning. it is tuesday. i'm kendis gibson. >> and i'm reena ninan. we begin with the upset at this year's iowa caucuses. so iowa voters handed no candidate a landslide victory. the biggest surprise was the stunning defeat of donald trump finishing in second place only four percentage points behind texas senator ted cruz and florida senator marco rubio finishing a close third. >> the race was even tighter between the top two democrats, vermont senator bernie and sanders and hillary clinton neck and neck in a race still too close to call. abc's david wright begins our coverage from des moines. >> and god bless the great state of iowa. >> reporter: more signs that nothing is inevitable in 2016. on the republican side, ted cruz trumped billionaire donald trump. >> iowa has sent notice that the republican nominee and the next president of the united states
will not be chosen by the media. but will be chosen by we, the people, the american people. >> reporter: on the democratic side, too close to call. even as hillary clinton declared victory -- >> so as i stand here tonight, breathing a big sigh of relief, thank you, iowa. bernie sanders i want wasn't conceding anything. >> it looks like we are in a virtual tie. >> reporter: the hard fought campaign touched every corner of this rural farm state, all 99 counties. a record number of gop caucusgoers turned out to participate. more than 180,000 statewide. for donald trump, the front-runner most of the way here, the question has always been, would those huge crowds at the trump rallies translate into huge crowds of trump voters. >> we finished second and i want to tell you something, i'm just honored. i'm really honored. and i want to congratulate ted. >> reporter: the third-place
finisher on the republican side, marco rubio also treated as a victory. >> for months, for months they told us we had no chance. >> reporter: the iowa caucus gets a lot of attention because it comes first, but in many ways this state is not exactly representative of the rest of the nation. no sooner have the caucus results been counted and it's onward to new hampshire. some with a boost, others slightly bruised, the battle in both parties now in full swing. >> on to new hampshire. so long, everybody. >> reporter: i'm david wright in des moines. okay, so with the cruz victory and a trump loss and a statistical tie for the democrats, let's continue our coverage right now from iowa. >> abc's brandi hitt is live in des moines this morning. hey, brandi, the results still coming in. so what are you hearing from the campaigns right now? >> reporter: you know, in the victory rallies i think a lot was said especially when you listen to ted cruz and marco rubio. they were energized tonight and
for good reason. they both finished well. ted cruz winning, rubio coming in third. on the democratic side, it was interesting to hear both hillary clinton and bernie sanders kind of declare victory even though this race is too close to call because they're likely going to be splitting the delegates from the iowa caucuses. i'm curious to see what ends up happening in the end. but you could hear on the sanders' camp sometimes the crowd would roar so loudly, he just had to laugh. this was a big victory for him to come out. he had a huge voter turnout. it was interesting to also hear clinton say that she was breathing a sigh of relief. you know, this is the state she lost back in 2008, reena and kendis. >> yeah, and it seemed like a victory rally for hillary clinton and bernie sanders. but with ted cruz leading the republicans, who were you thinking were other winners tonight? >> reporter: marco rubio, all analysts say he was definitely one of the winners tonight because everyone's talking about how close of a race this was. if you were looking at the numbers throughout the night here in iowa, you would hear
oohs and ahs in the crowd because he was so close to donald trump at one point, a lot of people thought he might even come in second, reena and kendis. > eager to see what happens in new hampshire. abc's brandi hitt reporting live from des moines. thanks so much. by the time iowa voters got together for caucuses last night, a couple of republican candidates had already moved on. ohio governor john kasich held three town hall meetings in new hampshire on monday. primary voters weigh in one week from today. chris christie was appealing to voters in the granite state. both governors got just 2% of the vote in iowa. stay with abc news all morning long for more coverage of the iowa caucuses. later this half hour, an update from the hillary clinton campaign. well, another major story we're following is the growing outbreak of the zika virus. the world health organization has now declared the virus a global emergency. zika has been linked to thousands of cases of brain damage in babies mostly in south america. the cdc added four more
countries to its travel alert, because of the virus. american samoa, costa rica, nicaragua and the caribbean island, as well. hundreds of residents near cleveland were forced to leave their homes after a train derailed and caught fire. investigators in the village of brewster say a butane tanker may have sparked the fire. two cars of the train left the track because of the fumes and the threat of explosion. people were sent to the local high school. the wal-mart trucker involved in the tracy morgan crash pleading not guilty. the june, 2014 accident severely injured morgan and killed one of his friends, both riding in a limousine van. kevin roper faces aggravated manslaughter and other charges. his attorney plans to ask the charges all be dismissed. investigators say roper had not slept for 25 hours and was speeding at the time. >> and comedian bill cosby is expected in court today for a hearing on his sexual assault charges.
at issue is whether the district attorney's office agreed not to prosecute cosby on the 2004 charges in exchange for his statement in a civil suit. the current d.a. says there was no such deal. the district attorney at the time is expected to testify that there was, and cosby's attorney is asking that the charges be dismissed. a surprise for prospective jurors in mississippi. their jury duty notice contained several phone numbers to call to determine if they had to show up that morning. so when the local number didn't work, many of the prospective jurors called the second number. it's a toll free number and boy, oh, boy, did they get a wrong number. >> i heard for hot girls, press 1. for hot guys, press 2. and i went ahead and hung up. i knew that wasn't right. it wasn't the courthouse. >> reporter: what were you thinking at the time? >> i was shocked. >> missing a key piece of the story. what happens when you press one or two? >> what happens when you press three? do you get both? >> prospective jurors were also worried that they would be
fined for not showing up. so the clerk says one digit was off and he's really embarrassed by the error. he's sending out an apology. that would make for interesting jury duty. >> it is. >> right? >> yeah. imagine? all right. so in years past, the tuesday before super bowl was media day when the teams answered all sorts of weird questions being asked by reporters and by others. not anymore. >> i'm just here so i won't get fined. >> media day has been replaced with what the nfl calls super bowl opening. both teams were there. >> the broncos and panthers were introduced while on a four-story high catwalk. >> carolina quarterback cam newton answered questions with a towel tied around his head. denver's peyton manning said that he hasn't made up his mind about retiring yet. and to everyone's credit, no one repeated the phrase "i'm just here so i don't get fined," over and over again. >> my other one was, what did he say? marshawn also said i believe in action, boss. wasn't that a line?
>> was it? i don't remember that one from marshawn. >> it was kind of cool like having the interactions with the players. >> you don't like the new setup. >> not necessarily. >> did you e-mail roger goodell? >> i'll get on it. coming up a potential shocker for fans of one direction, including myself. >> you're a big 1d fan. >> also ahead, adele gets political sending a big message to a major presidential candidate. that's in "the skinny" and our bonus round. >> and we'll return to our top story, the iowa caucuses and the reaction from hillary clinton's campaign in des moines after today's forecast map and a major snowstorm in the plains. and the midwest. you're watching "world news now." i did everything i could to make her party perfect.

updating our top story, the first test of the presidential candidates has handed no one a landslide victory, but senator ted cruz from texas won the republican iowa caucuses handing donald trump a big defeat and there's no victory so far on the democratic side with hillary clinton and bernie sanders in a deadlock. still too close to call. some confusion among reporters covering the clinton campaign last night. when the candidates spoke at what was meant to be her victory party she spoke but didn't declare victory. it was kind of odd. abc's liz kreutz covers the campaign and files this report for us this morning. >> reporter: good morning, reena and kendis. yeah. kind of a confusing night here. hillary clinton abruptly came on stage with bill clinton and
chelsea. she gave remarks an saying she's breathing a sigh of relief, but never said the word victory. >> i will always work to achieve the america that i believe in where the promise of that dream that we hold out to our children and our grandchildren never fades. but inspires generations to come. join me, let's go win the nomination. thank you all and god bless you! >> reporter: the clinton campaign says they believe they've won but things still seem a little bit confusing. obviously, abc news has yet to project a winner in the democratic caucus. reena and kendis? >> you know the way they do it in iowa, the democratic party, they have a proportion of the votes, you know, to go on. so just because you lose iowa doesn't necessarily mean you lose the whole state in the election. >> both of them are technically tied as far as the delegate count goes. talking about sanders and hillary clinton. but it was clear that this was the a disappointment for them. they were feeling confident all
day long going into the caucuses last night. >> do you know the iowa democratic party can actually declare a winner but they're kind of like, we're not going to do that. can you blame them? >> coming up, a very different kind of race. candidates vying for the heart of "the bachelor." >> our senior analyst is back with a report including an emotional cocktail party. >> the skinny up next. n emotional cocktail party.
