7:08 am
done talking about that. >> he's facing pressure and taking a bit of a hit. >> that's right. the first real indication. a new reuters poll out. his favorability ratings are down significantly. this same poll shows a majority of registered voters believe that the allegations against cain are true. >> thanks, jon. now to the latest in the trail of michael jackson's doctor. the jury about the start their second day behind closed doors. jim avila joins us to look inside that jury room. good morning, jim. >> reporter: good morning, robin. it's day two of le dib ratideli. could this be the day? some think it could be since the jury is deciding one simple question. up or down, did michael jackson

7:12 am
but, i still think that because what the jurors have to do is put together a whole series of facts and talk about possibilities and maybes and could bes and doubts, you do increase the chance that a few jurors will say, i don't see it that way. >> what is your take? the jury is not sequestered. >> most are not. remember, sequestering a jury means you're taking them away there their homes and jobs for weeks at a time. you're talking about enormous costs. this judge decided not to do it even though the defense asked for it. ? nothing surprising there. day two. dan, thank you. josh elliott has the other stories. we begin with important news for the stock market here and around the world. this morning, the prime minister
