7:05 am
>> the sounds you are hearing is washington, d.c. >> reporter: with the gop lineup shrinking after the new hampshire primary the wall street journal poll shows dramatic shift from last month. trump dropping seven. >> i think somebody at wall street journal doesn't like me. >> and yet he tells fibs, lies. >> reporter: the trump/cruz feud escalating. >> i am pro choice. we cannot trust donald trump with these serious decisions. >> reporter: trump's lawyers call it defamatory insisting he opposes abortion. >> i have had great success in business, great success with

7:07 am
you don't see every rly. jeb bush chest bumping his brother back stage after w.'s endorsement part of a new campaign video. jeb heard saying thanks, i love you. >> i don't think the president was ready for that chest bump. hillary clinton and bernie sanders working overtime to court minority voters ahead of saturday's nevada caucus. tonight they face-off in las vegas at a town hall event. andrea mitchell is already in position. good morning. >> reporter: with reports that clinton's top donors have complained about a grass roots effort hillary clinton and bernie sanders facing off in nevada, a state she needs to win after losing to sanders in new hampshire. hillary clinton and bernie sanders will be appealing to nevada voters during a
7:08 am
with just two days before the caucuses clinton's lead has disappeared. a new poll has her just one point over sanders. nationally things could be getting worse. once holding a commanding lead among women clinton's favorability is shrinking just six points ahead compared to her double digit lead a couple weeks ago. both candidates are reaching out to african-american and latino voters. clinton on the south side of chicago focussing on racial barriers and the problem of police violence against minorities. she also accused sanders of wavering support for president obama in 2012. >> even tried to have someone run against him. >> reporter: sanders looking ahead to south carolina. >> we have a real good shot in nevada and i believe we are

7:10 am

7:11 am
showed trump with a lead from 15 to 20 points. what do you read into the number in terms of ted cruz at least? >> reporter: the nbc wall street journal poll is a good poll normally but it can be off. it doesn't reflect the fact that trump does have the lead. ted cruz being hit by donald trump and marco rubio has moved up. he has consolidated a lot of support in the conservative wing of the party. i think no doubt ted cruz while still behind trump probably. >> let's talk about the democrats saturday a caucus in nevada. we have seen polling suggesting it is a dead heat there. how do you think hillary clinton has changed her message in the wake of what happened in new hampshire? >> she has honed in on the message that andrea talked about that bernie sanders is not practical.
7:12 am
obama and people shouldn't vote for him because his idea can't be made into law and reality. that is a very practical message. does it appeal to people's hopes and dreams? that is still an open question. andrea is quite right that saturday's caucuses are very important for momentum into south carolina and into march we see a very long protracted clintb saners clint clinton clinton/sanders battle. >> thank you. now to a desperate hunt for dangerous radioactive material missing in iraq. officials fearing it could be used as a weapon by terrorists. >> reporter: iraqi security forces have been searching day and night for months for this case the size of a laptop holding potentially deadly radioactive material.
7:13 am
matter of hours. the iraqis are worried it could fall into the wrong hands. it's a nightmare scenario, making a so-called dirty bomb. an iraqi government document confirms a highly dangerous radioactive material was stolen from a storage facility linked to weatherford oil company in november. weatherford oil said we do not own, operate or control sources or the bunker and that a different company held the material. nbc has not been able to reach them for comment. >> we have not seen indication of material been acquired by any
7:14 am
obviously, we continue to take these reports very seriously. >> reporter: the state department said there was no evidence that isis pulled off the theft. at this point the iraqis don't know who did. security sources told reuters it looked like an inside job. >> apple is getting support in its industry in a fight against a court order to hack into a phone used by a san bernardino shooter, a request that apple opposes and is fighting. miguel almaguer has the latest. >> an iphone like this one that locks after a set period of time and requires a four digit code to open it. this is what the fbi can't get past. apple says if it helps
7:15 am
create a dangerous precedent for everyone who owns one of these. two months after the terror attack that left 14 dead in bernanke san bernardino the iphone is setting security. >> i see the fbi's point, but you can see apple's point of view. >> reporter: with fbi investigators unable to unlock the federal judge ordered apple to create new software to unlock the iphone so it can be scoured for evidence. >> justice has to be served. people's lives were lost y. feel that is the moral thing to do. >> reporter: apple says they have been assisting the fbi with plans to fight the judge's order. in an open letter tim cook says
7:16 am
encryption is something he says they donot have and something we consider too dangerous to create. privacy advocates say building the master key to by pass security will be exploited and puts your privacy at risk. google ceo also weighed in on the issue wednesday tweeting we give law enforcement access to database on valid legal orders but that is different from enabling hacking to devices and data. the fbi believes they will lose the phone data permanently after ten failed attempts to open it. for family members of the victims there is no debate. >> when you are dealing with national security that should come first. people's lives matter. >> while the debate rages on and
7:17 am
court legislators say law can be produced to prevent phone companies from protecting data in cases like this. >> we want to know what viewers think. should apple help fbi unlock the shooter's iphone? >> a big debate on that. a strange story out of los angeles where a hospital paid ransom to hackers that apparently were holding computer network hostage. it paid about $17,000 when it fell victim to ransom wear. bit coin is online currency that is very hard to trade. hospital ceo called it the most efficient way to end the problem. neither law enforcement nor hospital gave indication of who might be behind the attack. >> a little strange. let's turn to al roker. >> we have warmth coming up in the next several days.

7:44 am
cheese included cheddar cheese and cellulose. >> they are looking to cheat somehow. they are trying to deceive us and trying to do things that we don't notice. to cut corners so they can make money. >> reporter: the fda does allow fillers like cellulose in cheese but can only make up 4% of total ingredients. he says hard cheese is on the list of foods with documented mislabelling issues. also on the list certain brands of extra version olive oil. some more expensive sea food like lobsteres or scallops and
7:45 am
we reached out to the involved food industries. they say they are committed to comply wg food standards and mislabelling is unacceptable. food contributor says he thinks people can find mislabelled products. >> most people aren't focussed on it so they go to a great italian restaurant and say something about the food is really great. the products are real. that is what we are missing out on. >> reporter: the food and drug administration says its job stoot make sure food doesn't hurt you. >> no doubt that the highest priority is to keep us safe. >> reporter: what can you do if you are concerned about the food in your fridge and panry he says buy products with the name you trust. there is no easy solution to food mislabelling.

7:50 am
by targeting a source of ra early in the inflammation process. for many, orencia provides long-term relief of ra symptoms. it's helped new ra patients and those not helped enough by other treatments. do not take orencia with another biologic medicine for ra due to an increased risk of serious infection. serious side effects can occur including fatal infections. cases of lymphoma and lung cancer have been reported. tell your doctor if you're prone to or have any infection like an open sore, the flu, or a history of copd, a chronic lung disease. orencia may worsen your copd. if you're not getting the relief you need... ask your doctor about orencia. orencia. see your ra in a different way. we are back now with more of apple's fight. carson, we have been asking
