the latest gop presidential polls still have herman cain and mitt romney on top, but they're being joined by a familiar face, newt gingrich is gaining ground. earlier today i spoke with chris wallace about what this means for the front runners. >> according to the cds poll, all three, gingrich and romney
are tied at 15%, cain i think at 18%. to not have a frontrunner in the 20s even, let alone the 30s is really an indication this race is wide open. i not only think it's up for grabs among those three, but some of the ones trailing. if the front roner is only at 18%. the other -- runner is only at tonight%. the other thing i think is that cain has really been hurt by these allegations. he's still leading, but his support among republican women has dropped from 28% to 15. that's why he's dropped in the polls and that's clearly since the allegations came out of sexual harassment. >> not only did cain have a tumultuous week, but that brain freeze by rick perry. at this point if you're mitt romney, you've got cain still up there. you have newt gingrich making a comeback. should mitt romney be concerned? >> yeah. he's steady and up near the front. so it's better to be there and he's raised a lot of money, but
the fact is you've had donald trump who at one point was in the polls leading and then michele bachmann and rick perry and now it's herman cain. they raise and they fall, but romney seems unable to build any support. his ceiling seems to be at about 25% which means that 3/4 of the potential electorate is looking for somebody else even though they've fallen disenchanted with some of these other people. that is not a vote of confidence for mitt romney at all. >> no, it is not. let's talk about another important issue, who is on your show this weekend? >> i can answer that. we'll be talking about penn state and just the tragic events there, first of all, the young kids and secondly, of course, the football program and legendary joe paterno. we'll talk to the great franco harris from penn state. we'll talk to the head of the student body and a top sportswriter who is now a professor of journalism there. then we'll talk about the super committee because as of sunday

overnight, a very cold fall overnight, but it will warm up a bit the next couple days. 44 here in town, gaithersburg 37, manassas, culpeper, they continue to drop like a rock now in the upper 20s there. fredericksburg is 32. that's dropping off. everybody outside of the beltway is really dropping tonight. baltimore holding up at 9th degrees, annapolis 42 -- 39 degrees, annapolis 42 and leonard town fairly cold. a couple places with a little wind creating a bit of a wind chill factor, feels like 40 in town, feels like 26 in frederick, 30 for quantico. in culpeper and manassas, the normal temperature of 28 degrees indicating no wind out there. clear skies tonight. the very cold air mass has settled in. it was producing lake effect snow earlier in the day but
that has calmed down. they may get a little more tomorrow, but most of that should stay well up into western sections of new york state. of course, nothing for us even though we did have some flurries reported down in the shenandoah for tomorrow. want to take you out to the central plains. you see all this cloudiness coming out into parts of colorado and texas. it looks like now by sunday some of this high level moisture will work on in for our area and so i think while tomorrow will be completely gorgeous with loads of sunshine, we're talking now like we're going to get some sunday clouds coming up on the backside of this high pressure. as the high pressure does very nicely for us tomorrow, brings us a lot of sunshine. we'll go 60 degrees and then it looks like on sunday the little change here has been that we've increased the clouds on sunday. i don't think it means that we're going to be completely sun-free on sunday, but i think we'll have enough clouds to make it at least mostly cloudy
by the late afternoon. temperature there will only be up to around 60 to 63 degrees. it just depends now how much sunshine can get through some of those high to midlevel clouds. a cold night. the wind is settling down, temperature 37 degrees here in town, but in the suburbs it's just a free for all out there in some places. a cold start tomorrow morning. plenty of sunshine through the day, high temperature up to right around 60 degrees or so. that's about 10 degrees, 11 degrees warmer than where we were today and the wind, a little breeze out of the southwest 10 to 15, perhaps a little bit higher than that at times tomorrow, but not nearly like it was today. 42 to start, 56 at noon and 54 degrees by 6:00 tomorrow evening and we'll cool right back down tomorrow evening. futurecast indicating nothing but clear skies tomorrow, but
as we progress into sunday, notice it brings cloudiness in sunday, sunday afternoon no, rain. that will stay well off to the west of us. five-day forecast, at least the good news here, we aren't talking about any extremely cold weather after we get through tonight. temperatures every day there at least in the 60s. the post season kicked off in high school football around the region. >> our fox 5 game. week went to maryland as gaithers -- game of the week went to maryland as gaithersburg faced off against churchill. >> playoff football was the best and tonight was the 4a semifinals, gaither the no. 3 seed, churchill the no. 2 seed and these two teams play games as close as their seedings. september 30 churchill beat gaithersburg on two late turnovers and tonight a rematch. the home squad churchill ready to go for this do or die
playoff time. churchill quarterback finding dominic williams in the end zone for the 45-yard touchdown. it's 7-0 churchill and once the touchdown celebration was over, a little handshake, watch this play. there's two tacklers duped, break another one and go he way bulldogs. churchill leads 17-0 at the half. gaithersburg will not go down out of a fight. late in the 3rd the trojans driving quarterback lincoln reyes recovers the high snap but gets picked off by jonathan lee. he returns it 15 yards before taking a huge hit. then on churchill's next possession a deep throw to dominic williams again for 45 yards, no touchdown this time, not yet anyway. three plays later in for the 5- yard touchdown. churchill wins 24-6 over gaithersburg. >> i tell you when i came here three years ago, this was the
goal, to be in the lead program in the state of maryland to try to get to the playoffs and make something happen. we put in a lot of hard work these past three years and i'm glad that it finally paid off for us. >> congratulations to churchill with the win. they are the 4a west region finals. 10 grand tossed in the trash, but one husband was not about to let his wife's engagement ring go without a big fight, his extreme dumpster dive coming up. at 11:00 here's one most parents don't worry about, getting their kid a cholesterol test. doctors are now adding it to the list. why on the news edge. >> today's five-day forecast is brought to you by your local dodge jeep and chrysler dealers. ma t.d mm
