fallen short of reaching double digits. the focus remains on tomorrow's south carolina primaries or polls showed trump is the favorite to win two in a road. one of us in battle in the pope, trump instead focused his attention on ted cruz. but ted cruz continues to punch upwards. >> uis. he was badly. that does not tell the truth. he holds up his bible in the new lies. that guy is a liar. >> who has the knowledge, who has the judgment, who has the temperament. temperament was on display saturday night. reporter: in the meantime, first on the democratic side. the fox news poll shows bernie sanders on top of hillary clinton and does so by three points. that is within the margin of error, but this also numerous other national polls this month
6:03 am
showing support having sanders way. democrats caucus in nevada tomorrow. back to you. maria: we want to bring into the beast to bring into the beast that people do a lot with washington at dinner reporter sarah westward. good to see you both. thanks for joining us. then they kick it off with you. focus your reaction to the town hall last night? let's start with hillary clinton and bernie sanders. >> what really stood out to me about last night town hall is bernie sanders and her which i thought preston on health care rationing. that is one of the central issues that opponent bring out. it will be harder to access health care. there will be waiting months and bernie sanders is totally better for the question. and honestly seemed a tiny bit hostile thing just having any price on health care, the fact health care is expensive is it felt rationing. something very close to his heart.
6:04 am
she was really excited to answer that. that is part of why bernie sanders is doing so well. on these issues of the far left base really cares about, he is right there with them. he's very passionate about clearly thought about it and is articulate. true to what struck me as the weakness that hillary clinton is facing right now and the fact that she got booed last night. you make a good point about bernie sanders. does it surprise you his dominating hillary clinton in reading her? >> and the cycle i don't think i'm capable of being surprised anymore. in iowa and went to the config locations. talking to students is overwhelming how much they preferred him to her. maria: what about the town hall? trump as well as kasich and bush. and he thought there? >> this is a format that fork is his donald trump better than any other candidate. in a debate you have candidates
6:05 am
that press back on policies and exposes some of his weaknesses in a town hall that is not so he's able to talk directly to voters. that was on display last night. maria: that is true. you are in a town hall in an audience member asked a question and there's no pushback could say whatever you want. you will not get a follow-up. dagen: he still struggles to it age. what i've seen him recently earlier in the week, he struggles to connect to. he's better in front of a big group of people where he's talking to the crowd following at his feet. i thought last night he had a softer side of donald trump. i don't want to jump on the follow-up question. he seemed to back up the rhetoric you heard earlier about the pope. he was reading a statement earlier, which we show a clip of.
6:06 am
what he was talking about the pope, he said i think he was being misinterpreted. he really is that to his advantage. >> if you type at the pope, this is a big deal that will anger a lot of people. >> i looked at a lot of numbers in the gop and republican party. it matters less down in the south in the primary contest on there. as a catholic sheriff a catholic share of the gop electorate in the northeast it does matter. it might not matter the primary contest, but new jersey, massachusetts, new york, connecticut, was on and are heavily catholic states. true to her what her take on the tensions between the pope in donald trump. the pope left in the republican front runner for his stance on immigration to get your reaction afterwards. >> a person who thinks about building walls wherever they may be and not building bridges is not christian. this is not in the gospel.
6:07 am
that's what you said about whether i would advise to vote or not vote, i will not get involved in that. i feel that this man is not christian if he says things like that. >> at the commissary, reaction? >> what is interesting that this is very pope francis thing to say. if a gun policy particulars. if all. if followed by saying he hasn't got the plan. he didn't even name churn. he made clear he sees immigration as a moral issue with any issue. it's important to bear in mind this could benefit trump. south carolina has the smallest percentage of catholics. it is dominated by evangelical christian. they are very influential. it helps that is squaring off against the pope. >> interesting take. we see sanders came in on hillary. hillary was getting booed at some point are going after bernie.
6:08 am
even left-leaning economists say he is unrealistic. how does hillary get that across to voters? do she have a chance of getting through to primary voters? >> it's interesting the intrigue of the republican side drive attention away from the fact democrat are whistling past the graveyard that bernie sanders. he is overtaking her in polls. the southern firewall promise from defeat might not be that strong. you look in nevada come to see that it has a high hispanic population and is not as wide as iowa and new hampshire and now the hillary clinton campaign is trying to downplay expectations by playing at the demographics of nevada as the more homogenous than they really are. that is dangerous as she lowers it nation and the state once promised to be her firewall and that is really spell it travel. maria: but she has got the
6:09 am
superdelegates. dagen: at the superdelegates will be embarrassed and wind up changing their vote. it happened the way. if bernie really takes off. by the way, if the pope is going to back a candidate, it would most definitely be bernie sanders. feel the bern. is burn baby burn. maria: thank you, ladies. we will see you soon. keep it here for your 2016 election coverage. fox business will be life on this tomorrow for the primary and caucus. coverage begins at 6:00 p.m. eastern. be here or be square. more will pay respects to the supreme court justice antonin scalia. cheryl casone without another headlines. >> good morning, maria. the body now lives in repose at the great hall of new york while debate surrounding the successor
6:10 am

6:11 am
identified as christopher mark has come a soldier who earn a bronze star. according to the police report, the suspect took the ball took the wallet which have three credit cards and $400 in cash and died. he was badly beaten. he was on fox and friends said he told them he thinks it was a hate crime. he was attacked because he was white and they attacked him because of that. police are investigating. maria: cheryl, thank you very much. after a month of zero ipos, february 9th. much better. why the ipo story is important rest of the year. in light of donald trump responded to the pope's criticism of his faith, don't want to miss that. be right back. stay with us. ♪ i think it landed last tuesday.

maria: welcome back. as the crude oil and gasoline rose to record levels last week putting pressure on oil prices this morning. phil flynn at the cma are. still hanging out around $30 a barrel. >> it is, maria. read his supplies were near record high of united take data type in the 4 million barrels. we haven't had that much in storage and 88 years. there is still a lot of talk about potential opec emergency meeting in march. high-stakes negotiations going on between opec members and non-opec members to come to some type of an agreement to freeze production or cut production. that was a story that got the market going earlier in the week but the supplies took away the momentum.
6:16 am
we will be watching the story as it develops. maria: thank you so much. phil flynn. this is the top story. ipo market right now. nearly 70% of the 175 come to a similar public that their stock market debut in 2015 now trading below their public offering prices. online editor jack otter join the conversation. interesting story today. i understand what ipos are doing badly because markets are doing so badly. this is for you? >> had the prize. everybody is excited and happy. and when people are depressed they do even worse. investors understand the general they are not a good thing. they tend to go down a bit after the initial public offering. in the first six months quite often as a general rule. there is a buying opportunity in the first six.
6:17 am
a good company with real cash flow to move higher. another thing to keep in mind is in a market that is this bad for ipos, it is actually worth looking for good companies. unless you are solid company, you will not get money anymore. by which you pour more money into something that's a losing investment. for someone willing to do the research. maria: do you think they were priced too high? the ipo 15 for just about market? >> there's some aggressive pricing that went off, maria. you look over the cliff and realize you're not getting your grounded anymore. let's go back and look at these deals from the past. they spoke in public and would down $20, was left for dead. but then burkett company figured out how to monetize mobile apps. it is showing growth.
6:18 am
the interesting point about a focus kayak was going to ride the coattails and become a millionaire. they actually canceled the ipo and the company ended up being bought by another company. let's look at what's going on now. real companies have business models that can make money. some like goober that even though they abuse money in china, they actually have a brand. they have this ability to have this dominant architecture that people are going to pay for come this year city in rows. some of the stuff not as high quality with ridiculous valuation, not on a taxable to the wayside. i see it as a natural selection. dagen: this is not a market investor discussion. in private equity, particularly venture capital, you have private companies wildly overvalued.
6:19 am
the valuation started getting reduced last year. that will eventually hurt additional investment, company creation of jobs which has been the engine of the country. it gets down to the core of candy industry continued to grow like it has in the last several years. >> these things have to calm down and know that the good ideas one that could fund it in too well. trained to look for they are starting from. you mentioned goober. these violations are so high. nowhere to go but down one to go public. >> with growth slowing in the state of the economy, you point out the jobs lost. i agree with that. the companies that show growth will have a scarcity premium. that's only going to become more so. maria: will take a short break. offering passengers an apartment in the sky. the only thing you won't be

6:34 am
christians and turned to the camera and said, we are coming to roam next. >> maria: you're right. >> the pope would understand the need for security. i think the pope is confusing the role of the church to show compassion and the role of government to uphold laws and secure the border. >> maria: wow. thoughts? >> pastor, we have donald trump still in the lead of south carolina, the narrowing. it almost sounds like, trump is being here for being defender of the faith, if you will, as oppose to a guy showing compassion, is that a fair assessment rand you think it's going to help him among conservative crowd. >> i really do. i think people have great
6:35 am
respect for the pope. most americans do not want to see the pope inserting in the american election and they don't want to take national security advise from the pope. and to me it's amazing that 65% evangelicals and by the way the most conservative brand of evangelicals will be going for trump. he's up almost two to one in south carolina overall and the latest fox poll has him up eight points even among conservatives. this is truly a phenomena. >> dagen: the pope has voters, 48% obama-romney. catholics don't make up a large percentage of the voters but matters in a general election when you look at the major
6:36 am
states like new jersey, for example. >> if evangelicals are any clue of what catholics may do, bloomberg showed in south carolina that when it comes to identifying what their values, votest said trump was at the bottom of the least, yet he's best to protect people's security and challenge the establishment. catholics around america are concerned about american security and people flooding border that are potentially drug dealers and isis. that's the desire to keep america safe. >> maria: by the way, have we heard the pope react what's going onto christians around the world? >> i think the pontiff has been outspoken about the need to protect christians and the outrage against christians being persecuted. i'm not sure where the disconnect is between what the
6:37 am
pope had to say. i think his very much desire to keep american safe. >> maria: jack. >> do you think this might be an argument for maybe not -- where do -- whether you build a wall between united states and méxico, maybe build a wall between politics and religion. >> people of faith ought to be involved in politics, the word politics means to influence and if it had not been for pastors in politics there would have been no abolition of slavery, no civil rights movement, no american revolution. pastors were at the forefront of the efforts. yes, try to influence the world that we are in. i don't think we ought to engage in partisan politics and that is certainly if we're not an american calling out a presidential candidate by name and suggesting he's not a
6:38 am
christian, i think that's going too far. >> maria: all right, pastor, talk about separation of church and state, jack. good to see you, sir. reportedly getting three extra days to to decrypt farook's phone. >> jo ling: on original proposal to impose companies that opt not to comply with court orders to break inencrypted communications. that's according to wall street journal. here in new york city, manhattan district attorney called out apple saying his office alone now has 175 devices from apple that it cannot access because of encryption. but apple ceo tim cook is standing firm receiving support from the ceo's of google and

microsoft along with facebook zuckerberg. these demands will create unchilling precedent and obstruct secured products. we stand with tim cook and apple and thank him for his leadership. and maria, apple is now telling me it does formally plan to challenge this warrant in the coming days. >> maria: you know, this story keeps getting more interesting. i don't know where you guys are on this. >> all the libertarians cover your ears. >> dagen: no, because they need to listen. >> michael: listen, who else is watching the show. here is how we beat them, these guys are so busy -- this is how

we escape. >> maria: this is about china and russia and everybody else around the world. apple does not want international companies that they are so married to the u.s. government. >> dagen: a lot of the iphone, apple customers oversees even more oppose to the government being able to get into the funds. they have a much, much more harder stand on security, like we in the u.s. think that -- you know, what, apple has fouled up. like i said -- >> maria: i don't know. >> dagen: it was one phone, it was one terrorist, it was one sager warrant and it was in the -- it was not a request for an overall -- >> maria: a lot of people saying it's a slippery slope. you stay away from my civil liberties. >> jo ling: this is very much a big argument. if you look at the biggest
6:41 am
supporters of iphone products after edward snowden is people that want privacy. that very much is, you also have to look at it as a business proposition. this is a product that's being sold, it will hurt business no matter what. >> dagen: not if it applies to everybody. >> maria: that's what he is saying. it does. >> dagen: if they had quietly dealt with the fbi in this request, they wouldn't now be facing legislation. >> maria: it would have never been quiet. it would have leaked, you gave my information away. >> jo ling: if you look at the legislators accurate this has been in play for the house and nat, this debate is super intense and i would be interest
6:42 am
to go see how the house actually respond because now we have a tangible issue at hand. it's no longer able social media and recruit meant and isis, it's way beyond that. >> maria: good point. >> dagen: fbi and legal authorities and the police could get into these phones until then, so we -- so everybody who is standing on a personal, you know, personal privacy, they are standing on it. it wasn't like that until a year and a half ago. >> this is just crazy, i don't think you can side with apple on this case unless -- >> maria: i know plenty of people who have sided with apple, you guys. >> maria: do not impact my civil liberties, you push back on government. >> jo ling: according to privacy lawyers i have talked about this issue who have advised apple in the past they plan to invoke first amendment, free speech

digits. polls show trump is the favorite to win two in a row. when he wasn't battling the pope yesterday, trump focused on cruz. >> he lies, he lies badly. that guy lies. that guy does not tell the truth. he holds up his bible and he lies. you know that guy lies. >> who has the knowledge, who has the judgment, who has the temperament, temperament was on display saturday night. >> blake: take a look at this right here, maria, a first on the democratic side the fox news poll shows bernie sanders on top of hillary clinton by three points. now that is within the margin of error but this also mirrors other national polls this month showing support heading sanders' way. the democratic caucus in nevada.
7:04 am
>> maria: joining us right now mark serrano and today, good to see you guys, thanks for joining us. what an election toss. >> oh, my gosh, you have hillary clinton barking like a dog, you have donald trump talking about sweety men and then you have jeb bush bringing his mom on the campaign. it's like the jerry springer show. the only thing they haven't done is start throwing chairs around. and then this pope thing. this is interesting. a lot of folks have talked about how this is going to play in south carolina. well, the good news for donald trump there's not that many catholics in south carolina. everybody is baptist in south carolina. [laughter] >> but, again, that this is going to impact him that much at least in south carolina. >> maria: yeah, what about -- i want to ask you about the democratic side of the race, mark serrano what about hillary
7:05 am
clinton, she's always tried to tell the truth. listen to this. >> jimmy carter famously said i will not lie to you. >> well, i have to tell you, i have tried in every way i know how literally from my years as a young lawyer all the way through my time in secretary of state to level with the american people. >> you talk about leveling leveh the american people, have you always told the truth. >> i've always tried to, always, always. >> reaction, gentlemen. >> try, try, try. that's the key frías here. hillary clinton tries to tell the truth. hillary clinton can't tell the truth. you know, it's really in her dna and that is going to really haunt her. interestingly she actually told me truth there is that she only tries. she's really not successful at telling the truth particularly, i think, that will haunt her the most is benghazi and the way that she lied to the face of families that were suffering and
7:06 am
grieve target loss of loved ones under her leadership. that's really a disastrous interview, we are going to see a lot of it in the general election campaign if she becomes a nominee. >> maria: what a question, dagen? >> dagen: her supporters have dismissed lack of trust worthiness over and over again and it slapped all oaf them in the face in new hampshire and then you have a response like this in a general even if she happens to win the nomination, how does she overcome this? >> look, this is a big issue for, i think, the entire country because you've got bernie sanders, socialist who is pulling big numbers specially among young americans, and i think this is the bigger story here. this is a failure of our public education system. they're teaching our kids this stuff in public schools. that's why they're supporting a
7:07 am
socialist because they're being taught this in public schools. >> maria: well, i mean, what you're saying is will she get -- it's one like drip, drip. will she get over this, maybe. there's the dog barking and other stuff. it's like drip, drip for hillary and bernie sanders is gaining. she's only -- she only beats trump. everybody else beats her. >> dagen: right, i saw that. mark, to that point, if you look at trump in the latest fox news poll in head-to-head matchups, trump was the weakest of all of the candidates. rubio and kasich actually did better against hillary clinton than trump did even cruz and bush did better than trump did. >> that's unusual. it's hard to interpret exactly what is going on in the polling,
7:08 am
particularly because i've said for two years now that this is going to be a unique election in that whereas republicans typically pick a prior runnerup in the nomination, it's democrats are doing that this time. hillary's biggest challenge is timing. this is an election where, you know t antiestablishment is ruining so far and for her to sit there, i try not to lie, i try to tell the truth really reinforces perception about establishment political figures in america and draws people to the other side. these matchups this early in the race i don't think means a lot, frankly, and, you know, i think when we're able to pick a nominee we will have much sharper contrast particularly outsider versus clinton. >> maria: don't forget, she has all the superdelegates, guy. she's all wrapped. >> she doesn't have her secret weapon. they really thought it would make a difference.
7:09 am

some are with investigations in police shootings here in new york city and sex trafficking. their point is that they believe that apple is impeding their investigation and the iphones are warrant proof, there's video on the phones, evidence on these phones. they have the phones, they need them unencrypted, they need them open. >> maria: there goes the argument that it's just one phone. >> dagen: in the fbi case it was -- >> maria: i know. >> dagen: only became an issue when apple went to full-disk encryption which was a year and a half ago. people who are upset think, oh, this is going to destroy privacy, i think you have to ask yourself are we willing to live in a society where all of these smartphones are basically off limits of law enforcement in in

7:35 am

i voted for it, sanders voted against it. organizations almost the attend to slavery. workers came if and if they didn't do what their bosses wanted them to do, if they didn't act steplt exploitation and cheating they would be sold out of this country. >> so a win here for sanders tomorrow especially with minority voters and his hispanic voters and union support could be a major setback for clinton and show that he is going to be a tough rival for her to go in and win the democratic nomination. >> really interesting stuff there. joining us now is billionaire investor, good to see you. >> thank you. >> want to get your take on the economy and markets.
8:04 am
what's your take on this election? u i think it's clear any most exciting election and in some ways the most terrifying one. this is the first time i can remember the american public expressing genuine dissatisfaction with everything that's going on. i think that's what explains on both sides some unusual candidates surface. >> that's the truth because bernie sanders and donald trump their both hateing and tapping in to this anger that you talk about. what are people most upset about? i think middle class and lower middle class americans feel correctly that they have been jerked over in the last decade or two. the economy has not performed for those people. they are tired of it. they really want some change. they are not quite sure what form the change should take but they know they don't like things the way they are going.
8:05 am
>> it's true. >> mr. ross, given the uncertain political climate, where are you seeing the best investment opportunities now? private or public? well, we have been buying some of the distressed bonds of the the production companies. even if some go break bankrupt the bonds are over contingency. we think that oil is a very interesting place to be. then related to that, we've been very active in the shipping industry. all that oil sloshing around the world has to go somewhere and it most like i'll gos in a vessel.
8:06 am
it's happy fuel. fuel costs are down an physical volume is up. >> it's interesting that you are favoring mining companies and buying the bonds of oil companies but is there a catalyst that will change the tre projectry on what's going on. . it's declined by over 30% last year. there's a reason for the difference. >> at the beginning of last year, china had about 250 million cars tonight road. they added 24 million cars just last year. that's a 9% increase and there will probably be. another 24 million cars this year.
8:07 am
since transportation is the main use of hydro carbon especially crude oil, that means that cars and air travel which has also been expanding rapidly in china have been driving the growth. >> wilbur, this is something we've been talking about for days, how much do you think of what's going on in the race for the white house, the rhetoric -- in how they commit money right now? >> well, this business people like certainty. businesses can adjust to good new, they can adjust to bad news. they have a tough time dealing with is uncertainty. and ge to* politically and every single country.
8:08 am
you can get out of the eu. spain is having trouble forming a government. italy has created internal controversy. go around the map, it's not just the u.s. but every place is having political unseurpbty and given the extreme the role the government now plays if business is creating problems in and of itself. i think the real cammodity expert. are there any forces that would force prices up? >> -- it is geared up and in the growth rate in china. they are just going to kh*eus. the reported figures their 6.9.
8:09 am
we believe a real growth in china is probably the best 4%. they have to continue cutting back their production. they have geared up for a demand con opponent that simply isn't -- and once it gets back if balance, prices will be okay. >> i want to get your take on the the international story. you are just back -- you have a sense of what's happening on the the real stkpheu. >> economy? >> just coming back from london they are very concerned about the election because obviously they feel as the the u.s. is for the rest of the world and the truth is that they are -- they are leaders and they don't understand these candidates. i had to remind them that they
8:10 am
loved obama and how did that work out for them? with the turmoil and the eu and the cracks they are seeing in the the eu they are really nervous about that. it looks like the whole globalle economy will spill over and if the united states doesn't elect a president that can spaeublize -- stabilize what he was saying, doesn't make them feel secure. hay are concerned. they don't see any path for their growth. they are looking for a strong president who is going to give everyone the confidence that things are going to get better. >> what is your sense right now. we know that you are obviously big investor in greece among other places. give us a status check. >> i think the most seriously
8:11 am
issue is the refugee problem. one of the central theories of the eu was free movement of goods of people within the eu. 2.7 million people a day crossed into our european borders freely and the a couple trillion dollars worth of goods every year moved within those borders. now they are shaken as being weudleleed away. countries are starting to protect their borders. they are going to have a huge economic toll on europe and it's also causing a great deal of the social displacement, social dissatisfaction and tearry problem -- budgetaryry problem for the individual countries. i think that is the single most dangerous problem in europe now.
8:12 am
>> would you invest to europe or asia? >> i am on my way to china. i will tell you. i haven't been there in 7 or 8 months and for me that's a long time. >> so are you a serial in the u.s.? >> we were a very big seller in the earlier part 20 15 and sold what we bought last year. not because we thought the world was coming to an tend but things seemed a bit choppy and we were concerned about this geo-political problem. >> thank you so much. >> thank you. >> safe trip to china. wilbur ross there. >> republican helpfuls busting out their best jobs to thraour votes. latest on this fiery race to the

trulicity responds when my blood sugar rises. i take it once a week, and it works 24/7. it comes in an easy-to-use pen and i may even lose a little weight. trulicity is a once-weekly injectable prescription medicine to improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes. it should be used along with diet and exercise. trulicity is not recommended as the first medicine ... or diabetic ketoacidosis. trulicity is not insulin and has not been studied with long-acting insulin. do not take trulicity if you or anyone in your family has had medullary thyroid cancer or multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2 or if you are allergic to trulicity or its ingredients. stop using trulicity and call your doctor right away if you have symptoms of an allergic reaction, such as itching, rash, or difficulty breathing; if you have signs of pancreatitis such as severe stomach pain that will not go away and may move to your back, with or without vomiting; or if you have symptoms of thyroid cancer, which may include a lump or swelling in your neck,

news poll, survey of republican voters nationwide show more than ted cruz and marco rubio combined. jeb bush, dr. ben carson and john kasich are approaching, but falling short of double digits. the focus today and tomorrow remains on south carolina, the primary there. polls show trump leads and rubio has many of the state's top endorsements. bush this morning was pushing back against the poll showing he could finish fourth or even fif fifth. >> south carolinaions are conservative and believe in supporting the troops and making sure that veterans get care, i'm sure the polls will take care of themselves. >> the stakes are high here, maria. 50 delegates in play, as much as new hampshire and iowa

8:32 am
the thing on most people's minds today are their financial well-being or financial opportunity or lock thereof. when you look at the numbers on trump and sanders, that indicates to me that the economy is at the forefront of most people's minds, as it well should be. maria: yeah, it's definitely the top issue, if not the one or two top issues. you know, john kasich, it feels like, has the goods because he's done it before. something he says over and over again on the campaign trail and in the debates that he did help balance the budget and he has the leadership that we can see in ohio yet, it's very hard to break out when donald trump seems to be taking all the oxygen. >> look, let's be realistic about what's going on in america today in the political process. there are a lot of americans people who are hurting and they don't see a way out and trump and sanders both represent an
8:33 am
opportunity for them to say loud and clear, who is taking care of us? we're unhappy. we feel left out. and i think there's validity to those. we look, for example, talk about the unemployment rate. the economists say the unemployment rate is a hell of a lot higher and say well, you stop looking for a job you're no longer unemployed. show me the logic of that and how it works, because i can't figure it out. unemployment in america today is at least twice as much as the stated number. maria: right. that's why so many people have not felt this recovery. they haven't seen their wages move or looking at growth. that's sort of at a crawl. >> look, one of the biggest challenges in america, i believe. is income inequality. that's one and the other is generational debt. got to take account that these guys are going to realize that 80-year-old guys like me have
8:34 am
done well by entitlement to their expense or at their expense, and i think those two issues, generational debt and income indequality we've got to get to work on it. to be fair, income inequality reflects the deterioration of education in america, the correlation between the education and ability for people to compete in the marketplace and we've got to get that going and that's not a short-term fix, maria. if we start today. my guess, it will be 20 years before we see the real fruit of an improved educational system in america. maria: that's why you've been such an incredible philanthropist around education and health care and know what you've done at nyu medical, langone medical. let me ask you about the pope, ken. because you're a proud catholic and donated to the restoration of st. patrick's cathedral in new york city.
8:35 am
what's your reaction to donald trump's war of words with pope francis? >> well, i think pope francis' war of words with donald trump. i think it's -- maria, just came from mass. i'm a devout catholic and proud of my religion and the pope is a wonderful man and i think he's got the right focus on a global basis, we've got to consider the downtrodden and those left behind and those that have suffered, and issue how can you be a christian and not feel for people with less than you. where the pope on this one is wrong, he can certainly say if he wanted to that building a wall is not a christian thing to do, but building a wall doesn't mean that donald trump is not a christian and i think there's a play on words right there. remember the old saying, god lovers sinners, he hates sin. i think to say that donald trump is not a christian is
8:36 am
wrong, absolute flat-out wrong and in fact, i was listening to something this morning where there's speculation that the pope may try to clear up or give clarity to what he said yesterday. maria: okay. >> but i happen to believe that the way it was stated yesterday was flat-out wrong. i'm not challenging the pope on spiritual matters, i'm saying in this case, you know, i don't know of anybody in their life who doesn't do un-christian things from time to time, saying an unkind word about somebody else, not giving somebody a helping hand when you can do so. maria: yeah. >> we're all guilty of unchristian-like behavior, hopefully that doesn't impair our ability to be christians. maria: you're expecting a clarification there. it's interesting you'd put your time and your money behind john kasich at this stage. game. we to that donald trump has been leading and bernie sanders is overtaking hillary.
8:37 am
i've got to get your take on that as well. you think these next couple of contests going into super tuesday are going to see a different theme than what the polls show in the last eight months then? >> no, i don't know if it's going to be different, but i think it's fewer in number and more focused on those that are remaining. i'm not going to name names, but i'm sure by monday there will be at least one or two other people dropping out of the republican race and i think, look, i think john kasich has got all the ticket. first of all, he's a good man, a decent man. maria: yeah, integrity. >> but he's got experience to go with it and he's rather -- rather, he's forthright and says it the way it is. and remember, i supported christie in 12 and when he decided know the to run, i joined the romney effort. christie made his mind up this is not the time for him. i've known john a long time and i did indicate that if chris
8:38 am
ever dropped out i would certainly be interested in supporting somebody who-- in my case i think it's an obligation on my part to be involved and i don't need anything from the government, thank god. i am pushing to get better relations, so they have better relations. maria: that's what everybody loves about you, no conflict. i've got to get your take on hillary clinton and bernie sanders. does it surprise you that he's overtaking her in the latest polls? >> no, i think collectively democrat, republican, independent, the american people are not happy. maria: yeah. >> the bigger issue to me is not the election in november, that's going to happen and we're going to have a winner. what are we going to do about all of these people after the election and what are we going to do to help them? what are we going to do? they're loud and clear, they're going to a radical extremist saying i'm going to vote for trump and know the to say
8:39 am
anything is wrong with donald and sanders, but a years ago you wouldn't give them a chance to be where they are today. they haven't changed. the american people, many of them are saying, wait a minute, something is wrong. we need help. who is thinking about us? don: do you think that bloomberg enters the race? >> i don't know. that's a good question. i've heard mike say many times why he couldn't win. and you know, everybody has, as a matter of fact. look, mike did a superb job as a mayor and mike, i think, would do a superb job as a president. every day he waits if he's thinking about it is one less day he has a chance. maria: i've got to ask you about this, the cover of the new york post, eliot spitzer now says that the woman who is saying that he choked her, the russian woman who left the country now he says that she tried to shake him down. eliot spitzer.
