good morning. poll position. a new cbs news poll finds a majority of americans don't feel president obama deserves a second term. "60 minutes" correspondent steve kroft sat down with the president and asked if mr. can turn the economy around before election day. >> oops. rick perry gets more names wrong and draws more slumps for his record. >> whether it was -- uh -- uh -- not -- not to be -- or --
5:01 am
>> sonia sotomayor? >> sonia sotomayor. >> a video of a husband who vanished almost five years ago in iran, we will talk to her and a man who was held hostage by the taliban about what it takes to survive this long. a british war ship is back after sending a christmas card to the world. ♪ >> what this crew really wants for the holidays "early" this saturday morning, december 10th, 2011. captioning funded by cbs a nice december morning here in new york city. looking at one of the towers of the time warner center on the upper west side.
5:02 am
>> it looks cold out there but it is cold. >> it's cold to you because you are from texas. >> i'm betty nguyen in for rebecca jarvis. >> i'm russ mitchell. jerry sandusky's wife could also be charged because she allegedly did not stop him. also in explosive new charges, the president of the amateur union is being charged with abusing two athletes. first, though, we begin with the republican race for the white house. with the clock ticking down on the iowa caucuses, the candidates meet tonight in des moines for another debate. cbs news national correspondent dean reynolds is there with details. good morning, dean. >> reporter: good morning, betty. well, every time the candidates engage each other is important, but now with the caucuses barely three weeks away, tonight's debate could be critical. for the front-runner and everyone else.
5:03 am
before he can get much enjoyment out of his position at the head of the republican pact, newt gingrich is drawing fire. >> there is the 37 million dollars gingrich took from health and industry groups. >> reporter: his veneer of inevitability is gone and mitt romney is teaming up with supporters to bring gingrich back to earth. romney nearly takes the high road. a lot of people republicans are expressing concerns about newt gingrich's leadership ability and do you share those concerns and do you think he is qualified to be president? >> i think seven or eight of you debated we would do a better job than the current president so they are all qualified, including the speaker gingrich. >> reporter: but enumerating the former speaker's so-called baggage, his leadership style and personal life. at this point, gingrich looks like the man to beat in iowa. the latest cbs news poll shows him leading romney 31% to 17%
5:04 am
with ron paul third. >> if you're for me, you'll vote and go home and say, i sure hope newt does it. >> reporter: the way the rest of the field has been campaigning lately, it's safe to say at tonight's debate, newt gingrich will be the primary target. russ? >> denial reynolds in des moines, see you later in the broadcast. thank you so much. for more on the race, let's turn to chief political correspondent jan crawford in our washington bureau. let's talk about the latest results of the latest cbs news poll. they say president has worked hard to bring change but when fixing the economy, 68% said no and 28% said yes. when asked if the president deserves to be reelected, the majority, 54% said no. not great numbers for the president. jan, less than a year before election day, how concerned should the white house be about this? >> reporter: they sure aren't going to make president obama smile. it cannot come as a surprise. his approval ratings have been
5:05 am
low for months and months, especially on that key issue of the economy. but the thing is he's not turning these numbers around and no president since truman and that is back in 1948 has been reelected with approval ratings that low and that was before we were born, russ. but here's a really bad number for the president. 75% of the people we talked to said america is in the wrong direction. that is a very troubling sign for this white house. a very troubling sign for the president. >> it's interesting. despite the negative numbers the president still leads the leading republican contenders mitt romney and newt gingrich in head-to-head matchup, in some states, i think romney is ahead. what does that tell you? >> reporter: it's not great news for the president because we haven't had a real head-to-head matchup. the president is out there on the kind of stump already going to these key states, pushing his policies. he's had this bully pulpit of
5:06 am
sorts, yet, two-thirds of the people say they have no idea what he wants to accomplish in a second term. he's been out there kind of his campaign has been slamming mitt romney, you know, every which way till sunday, but still the voters are saying that they don't think the president is doing that good of a job. and when there is a republican nominee, we actually have a republican nominee, then you're going to get that head-to-head matchup and that is a real candidate and that could even be more problems for the president. >> let me ask you about rick perry. a couple of more flubs this week. let's take a look at one. >> whether it was -- uh -- uh -- not to -- not to -- mayor. >> sonia sotomayor? >> sonia sotomayor. >> he forget one of the supreme court justices and said there are eight instead of nine.
5:07 am
at this point, what do these type of gaffes do to his campaign? >> what they tell you is that his campaign is on life support. what they tell you is what this means is when you go to states like alabama, my great home state, you ask people about rick perry and they will say he just ain't got it. that's what is what this is translating into. at the time when voters think america has serious problems and they want a candidate who can fix it and who can debate and beat barack obama. all of these gaffes has translated in plummeting poll numbers in perry. he is asking for voters to give him a second look but these things like we saw yesterday. listen to this. he has a case before the supreme court right now! his state does. not good news for rick perry. >> jan crawford, born many years after 1948. >> you too. >> that's true. thank you very much. president obama is expected to travel to landover, maryland, today to honor the troops who served in iraq by attending
5:08 am
112th army/navy football game. before that, he spoke with "60 minutes" correspondent steve kroft and they discussed the nation's ailing economy and also whether the president feels he can bring down the stubb unemployment rate. >> do you think that you might have the unemployment rate down to 8% by the time the election rolls around? >> i think it's possible. but, you know, i'm not in the job of progrenosticating on the economy. i'm in the job of putting in place the tools that allow the economy to thrive and americans to succeed. you know, sometimes when i'm talking to my team, i describe us as, you know, we're -- i'm the captain and they are the -- they are the crew on a ship. it's going through really bad storms, and no matter how well we are stirring the ship, if the boat is rocking back and forth and people are getting sick,
5:09 am
they are being buffetted by the winds and the rain, you know, to a certain point, if you ask them, are you enjoying the ride right now? folks are going to say no. and are they going to say do you think the captain is doing a good job? people would say a good captain would have had us in some smooth waters and sunny skies at this point. and i don't control the weather. what i can control are the policies we're putting in place to make difference in people's lives. >> reporter: did you overpromise? did you underestimate how difficult this was going to be? >> i didn't overpromise and i didn't underestimate how tough this was going to be. i always believed that this was a long-term project. it's not a short-term project. you know, for individual americans who are struggling right now, they have every
5:10 am
reason to be impatient. reversing structural problems in our economy that had been building up for two decades. that is going to take time. it's going to take more than a year. it's going to take more than two years. it's going to take more than one term. probably takes more than one president. >> you can see steve kroft's full interview with president obama tomorrow night on "60 minutes" here on cbs. changing gears now. jerry sandusky sexualcharged wi sexually abusing boys. his wife denies knowing anything about the abuse. anna werner has more. >> reporter: the images told the story. former penn state football coach jerry sandusky in handcuffs on wednesday being taun out of his home by police. later that same day he was on his way to jail where, for the first time, he spent a night in
5:11 am
custody, his bail set at $250,000. the reason? more allegations that he sexually abused young boys. he is charged with molesting ten children over a span of 15 years. he faces a total of 52 counts of child sexual abuse. his lawyer, joe amendola, spoke to reporters outside sandusky's home where his client is under house arrest. >> jerry sandusky has maintained his innocence. >> reporter: this week in a second grand jury report, even more disturbing details came to light about two more alleged victims. in the report, one accuser, identified as victim nine, says he was sxexually abused' tornad watch of 12 often in the basement of sandusky's home. at least once he said he screamed for help knowing that sandusky's wife was upstairs but no one ever came to help him. dottie sandusky said in a statement thursday she is devastated by the allegations
5:12 am
saying they are false and she continues to stand by her husband. is she doubting her husband at all? >> no, she's not. she is 100% behind him. no doubt in her mind he not a pedophile and no doubt he didn't commit these offenseses. >> reporter: that preliminary hearing is scheduled for tuesday, here at the center county courthouse. seven of the alleged victims will testify and if they do they will be telling their stories in public for the first time. anna werner, cbs news, bellefonte, pennsylvania. >> joining us is beth karras who is a correspondent for "in session" on trtrutv. if for the sake of this conversation, if mrs. sandusky knew what is happening, could she face charges as well? >> if she knew, yes. but that's a big question. what we know right now based on
5:13 am
the two grand jury presentments or reports there is not enough evidence but if one of the accusers said they told her what was happening and saw her in the room and she walked away, there is evidence, if it's credible that she knew and she could be charged. >> she has been very quiet. why do you think she is speaking out now? >> i think because victim number nine, that accuser, has actually almost implicated her saying i knew she was in the house, i'm screaming for help. he says he was being raped at the time. he believed she was in the house and she didn't come to help and she rarely came to the basement and he had almost no contact with her whenever he came to the according to his testimony. if believed, that raises questions. we in the public and media are raising questions and she came out and said i didn't know anything about this. there can be exceptions and an exception she can be compelled in the case of sexual abuse but right now she says she has
5:14 am
nothing to add to a case that the attorney general is making in the commonwealth of pennsylvania but if she had something she could be compelled on that narrow issue. >> talk about the hearing this week. we heard the victims or alleged victims are going to testify in open court for the first time. what else can we expect to see? >> well, we know that these two complaints that involve ten accusers, but eight of them testified to the grand jury. two are unidentified. they will be joined and evidence next tuesday about all of them, not just the first one that was a month ago, okay? they have been joined. we don't know that all of them are going to testify. as we just heard, maybe five will testify. and i've been told by the attorney general's spokesperson there are other ways to get the testimony in. i'm told hearsay is not admissible but i'm not sure they using a grand jury testimony. they are going to address all of them but he won't see all of them i don't think. >> you just got back from state college. more than a month since this
5:15 am
case first broke. how would you describe the community there? >> the community is not talking about like in the first few days. in a cafe, people would tell me their stories and beliefs and theories and maybe they have some actual facts. now, they are a little quieter. and folks actually are a little annoyed that sandusky is being convicted in a court of public opinion right now and these are just allegations and i am hearing that. from people there, they want this to play out in the system and let the chips fall where they may but let's not convict him yet. >> of course, of course. beth karras, thanks very much. >> thank you. thousands of protesters are in moscow this morning, angry over what they say were fraudulent elections and likely to be the biggest public show of discontent in russia since the fall of the soviet union. cbs news correspondent charlie d'agata is following developments from our london bureau. good morning, charlie. what is the latest there? use we have seen clashes in

5:17 am
secretary of state hillary clinton. accusing her of spurring on protests by questioning the results of the vote. he said the first thing the secretary of state did was give her opinion about elections saying they were unfair and unjust, even before she got results from international monitors. those international monitors have already pointed to ballot stuffing in the parliamentary elections. russian security forces quickly put an end to spontaneous protests earlier this week. today's planned demonstrations may be the biggest test that putin's 12-year reign of power in russia and the big question is how far will allow them to go? it will be questions between the arab spring and russian winter. that is not something putin and his security forces are likely to tolerate. >> no doubt. charlie d'agata, thank you. here is correspondent

5:33 am
>> joining us from davie, florida, is levinson's wife christine and with us in new york is former "the new york times" reporter david hoe who was held for seven months when he was covering afghanistan. he is now a writer for the reuters agency. christine, can you give me an idea of what your reaction was when you first saw this video about a year ago? >> my reaction was that i was very -- i knew it was bob right away. as soon as i saw him and he spoke, i knew it was bob. i was dismayed by fact that he had lost so much weight and was looking so sad, but, at the same time, determined to come home to us. >> yeah. >> and i was happy at the same time that he was alive. >> you held on to this video privately for a year. was that tough to do? >> yes.
5:34 am
very tough. we want this case resolved and, of course, we want it done now, but we have no control over how quickly we can get it done and that is why we're trying to get it out now. >> i understand. christine, are you satisfied with what the u.s. government is doing to try to find out where your husband is and free him? >> yes. the fbi has an open case and i believe they are doing everything they can to try and find him. southwest asia is a very difficult area. >> christine, do you think what this comes down to is you and your family actually establishing some sort of dialogue with his captors? >> yes. that's the whole goal of putting this video out. and the plea. we have tried to contact them, but we have been unsuccessful in receiving any kind of reply from them so i continue to press for a reply and i think this is the best way to make sure that they get in touch with us. >> david, i bring you into this.
5:35 am
how tough is that for family like christine's to negotiate directly with these folks? >> to be frank, it's virtually impossible. a vague mention of prisoners and the film doesn't show prisoners. my demands for my release was a crazy amount of money and prisoners. i was able to escape so i was lucky but i feel terrible for them. the family doesn't know what to do. do you keep it private? do you go public? and i i think releasing this video is a desperate effort by them to cry to create momentum in this very sad case. >> christine talked about the health of her husband. when she saw him, he had lost weight. how important is the health of the captors? >> it's very important. i was treated very well. he lost weight and i lost some weight but they will keep you alive because they see you as a valuable commodity they are trying to sell so i think an excellent chance he is alive even though the tape is a year old and there should be tremendous efforts to help him and his family. >> do you have any advice for christine's family at this
5:36 am
point? i. be patient. they do consider him very valuable. i do think think he is still alive but try to get through each day. in the end there isn't that much control in terms of having this case end and i am sure he is trying to get through each day and he feels terrible for what the family is going through as well. it's hard to say but they need to stay at it and be positive. there can be a resolution in these cases and someday he will come home. >> this has been a roller coaster, christine, for you and your family. how do you get through this? what are you doing? >> like he said, it's one day at a time. every morning i wake up' hope today is the day i get him home. unfortunately, it hasn't happened yet. >> christine levinson and david roee here in new york, thank you both. >> thank you. >> it is 24 minutes before the hour. lonnie quinn is here with another check of the weather. >> weather headlines. 12 more days until the winter
5:37 am

just recently allegations have sexual abuse have come to light at penn state and syracuse and citadel. now explosive new charges against the president of the amateur elect union. two basketball players say they were sexually abused in the 1980s. so is it a coincide that all of these are being revealed now? and is sexual abuse in sports more prevalent than in society as a whole? joining is paul monas, a criminal defense attorney who represents victims of sexual abuse. last year, he won the largest verdict for sexual abuse against the boy scouts of america. paul, thanks for being with us. every day it seems we are hearing about another case in the haeeadlines. why are we hearing about it now? >> people hide it for years and years because of shame and embarrassment. in fact, most of the people will never come out. i mean, if the allegations for
5:42 am
instance against any one of these people are proven true at any point, most people remain silent their whole lives and take it to their grave with them. >> you think there are many more? >> many more. staes statistics. . there is so much shame and embarrassment because the people blame themselves and don't blame the person who has done it. >> let's talk about the statistics. some say 1 in 4 girls have been sexually abused and 1 in 6 boys. do you think it's too low or too high? >> the statistics are hard to get specific on. it's fairly reliable by a number of people i work with who research around the area. it combines fathers and et cetera. or in the area we know of institutional abuse which is church abuse, scouting program, or now what we are seeing really in sports and sports is going to be the next large area where people feel permission to start
5:43 am
coming out. >> i want to ask you about the sports world. do you think it's more prevalent in the sports world than these other areas? >> i don't think it's more prevalent but the problem in the sports world, as many parents are watching today or people who participate in sports as kids, is that coaches have this isolated time with kids and one of the few areas therewhere there is permissible touching, for instance, in teaching kids basketball skills or football skills. so there's an area that they typically would not be legal to do if they were tape adults in a relationship with a child. we will see more of that. there a lot of isolated one-on-one time which is dangerous in these situations. >> that being the case, what needs to be done to stop this? >> that's the question everybody is going to try to -- that is the big question. i think the main thing is people have to be aware that people who do these things to children are everywhere. and that it's not the guy outside in a rain coat waiting for kids to come out of school. it's a lot of subtle cues you have to watch with your children in terms of being alone with adults who you don't know. even if they seem to be the best
5:44 am

6:10 am
up up until today seem to support that because they did not aggressively try to get him. if you sign him to a ten-year deal two years ago, now he is 39 when this deal ends and it's not such a bad deal. they didn't want this thing to happen. and i think -- okay, just tell everybody, we're not interested, we only want him for five years and that is it. but, instead, they september saying we are going to do everything we can to get his name back with the cardinals and they weren't trying to do that. >> that's really interesting. $254 million over ten years and people will say nobody is worth that kind of money. i ask you in the context of crazy baseball salaries, is albert pujols worth it? >> oh, yes. for any number of reasons. number one, three or four teams put -- bid money $200 million offer on the table, so by definition, yes, he's worth it. number two, he's worth it because you're going to get probably about six or seven, maybe eight years where he still
6:11 am
remains at this hall of fame level and then toward the end of his career, you're going to have a guy who is going to be going after all of the records in baseball, whether it's going over 3,000 hits or going after the all-time career home run record. that's something that you can market as an organization, as a franchise, and that has to be worth something well as well. >> brian burwell, a lot of tears in the beer next year at busch stadium. appreciate your time. >> my pleasure. up next, tv talk show legend difficult cavett joins us for "early coffee ." he has revealing admissions who he would like to talk to today. you're watching "the early show" on cbs. q
