stabbing spree in london in 3 months attacks committed by men who had already been convicted on terrorism related charges but this time the attack wasn't in the city center but in the suburbs. it's crazy she says crazy and stupid i mean i'm going to find myself and i'm a teacher and i see that kind of thing happening here one of my children here grandchildren here she is happening and people on doorstep it's a sad place to but i think it's pretty strange that people things seem to repeat themselves and happen this often i think people would be sensitizing to issues like this which i think is a big concern that seems pretty similar to what happened at london bridge the short while ago or so it's pretty scary that it happens in your own backyard the u.k. government off to the incident announced new sweeping measures in how it deals with terrorism offenders antiterrorism experts however also emphasized that lone wolf low tech attacks like this are always going to be difficult to stop any 70 now

today kicks off the race for u.s. democrats vying to become the party's next presidential candidate the iowa caucuses are the 1st of a series of contests between a dozen presidential hopefuls so let's take a look at the candidates who are leading in the polls right now where former vice president joe biden senator bernie sanders senator elizabeth warren and peter put a judge who was formerly the mayor of south bend indiana that did it correspondent alexander phenomena traveled to i was capital des moines and she sent us this reports. for rose thompson this is the most exciting time to be in iowa when her state is once again in the national spotlight as a volunteer for the democratic party she likes to joke that politics is so sport and religion with all your love with mike you did it it's all about i did no wrong i'm figuring out to talk to her. and i want.
11:18 am
this time it's senator amy klobuchar one who's thompson support as a moderate candidate from the midwest. my guess is ruth and i'm a volunteer for the amy closure it came to me just calling to remind you that tomorrow night it's caucus night here in iowa and thousands of volunteers like ruth thompson now campaigning for candidates in iowa until the last minute well what's more important then our democracy and shaping our country for the next few years i mean the cynical part of me says because we got out of here but bit what's more important than investing in your country. that's what scott has spent has been doing for hours now canvassing and then neighborhood for any club. even though she's not considered a frontrunner in iowa we were able to work with republicans and i used to be a republican. i'm. sure. health care
11:19 am
climate change america's standing in the world issues that matter here scott thompson says he hopes for a democratic nominee who can bring together the party and the divided country you see a mayor and if we republican and i know the importance of working with people you may not agree with. but you need their support i mean your support for it and so you trade off you you make concessions where you have to i mean while at the party's headquarters in des moines bruce thompson needs to sort out some details she has to caucus chair and her precinct and in charge of organizing believe that it's like a neighborhood commuting she says where people get together and out in the open try to win over and their friends to support their candidate the thing that makes the caucus unique is that you are really looking your neighbor n.e.i. and saying you know i'm supporting my candidate because her values are the same as mine and they are and if if your neighbor is not really sure or they're not solid
11:20 am
with their candidate you can say well you know you are you think that climate change is is important so let's let me tell you what i mean thinks about climate change is a super bowl watch party and the grill restaurant in. scotts thompson has come to have a cold beer and to meet his candidate one more time before the caucus amy club appearance is brief but she strikes an optimistic tone we want to have record turnout you. really want to do you mean leaving you know them back. and if she doesn't win here scott thompson says it's a long run with more primaries to follow however winning iowa can mean big momentum for a companion and that's why it's so exciting at this time of the year to be an iowa . political campaign strategist is with us here in our studio highly as you worked on both obama campaigns just as
11:21 am
a nature doesn't talk you know iowa well and you just got back from there understand what kind of buzz was there around which candidate i mean tremendous energy and i was a child all across the state so all the candidates with the exception of bernie sanders but the energy in iowa i mean there are volunteers ever people knocking on doors you can. turn on the t.v. without at least 10 t.v. spots coming on for all the different campaigns online advertising direct mail i mean it's all over the place i will say that at all the events one of the things that stood aren't bernie sanders was still in washington last week to be on the senate floor hearing and debating about impeachment right 4000 people gathered outside of the morning without the candidate even being there so that's just sort of shows to you the type of energy and the type of excitement that's in there he carries a lot of sway that's for sure but what about elizabeth warren this is someone a lot of people are talking about what was the energy like around her so she flew in late after the vote in washington on friday night and didn't did
11:22 am
a rally in des moines at around $1030.00 and the place was just packed she came out there gave a speech for about 1520 minutes and in the end listening to all those candidates they all made one prime argument of course is that what they're for and what they stand for but most importantly they all make the argument that their best equipped to be donald trump in the fall so this is what most people i talk to also care about like who is best equipped and who is capable of beating donald trump democrats and i were they're scared they just don't want to see donald trump anymore so that's what they're looking for. what is it going to take what is going to take for democrats to put together strategy to be donald trump and who is the best candidate for that at this point so i'm not going to sit here and say this is the best equipped candidate and i think is obviously that that whoever comes out of this process whether it's bernie sanders or was it with warren on the more progressive lane sort of talking about a political revolution or whether you go with joe biden people to judge sure more
11:23 am
on the moderate lane you know they will need to figure out how they can tie in the argument of moving forward and actually changing things for the better compared to all the weaknesses that donald trump has exposed the last couple years so of course trump is going to make an argument that the economy is growing that unemployment is down i think what democrats will need to do they need to tear into his support and actually make an argument to all those people who voted for trump in 2016 that in fact donald trump has been working for them he's worked for the corporations remember the tax cuts i think that is one of the arguments that i've seen throughout this week that people say well chump is not really working for you he stood out and started out his campaign saying i'm here for the average american when in fact he has been working for the big corporates that's one of the arguments that i've heard democrats made and i think that's something that voters have been responding to and the right political campaign strategist you'll see us on the line with us here in studio thanks for your nonsense if you. but let's switch gears to
