different with republicans already looking ready to rumble. >> reporter: in front of a rowdy crowd, donald trump taking aim at jeb bush. >> he has a vicious streak. >> reporter: online, a different target as trump warns ted cruz on twitter, if he doesn't quote clean up his act, stop cheating and doing negative ads, trump will sue him for not being a natural born citizen. >> there is more than a little irony than donald calling somebody nasty with the insults and vulgarities. >> reporter: cruz and trump battling for evangelicals in south carolina. and on the air waves, ad wars intensify. this one from trump on illegal immigration immigration. >> his killer, an illegal immigrant.
8:07 am
hit not a republican rival, but hillary clinton. the ad spoofs the movie "office space" but a different kind of film that has cruz explaining why he yanked this off the air. >> vote for a pretty face next time. >> it happened with one of the actresses who was there had a more colorful film history than we were aware. >> reporter: the actress the star of adult movies who says she has no hard feelings. >> i have no ill will against ted cruz. he has a job to do. i'm a middle class working girl. >> reporter: the job tonight for marco rubio, prove he can bounce back from new hampshire. rubio says he is ready. >> we have to have perspective here. i had one answer i would have done differently. >> reporter: rubio campaign aide

8:09 am
it was a very effective attack and really harmed rubio, but christie is out. he was a suicide bomber on stage and took rubio out. that is the fine balance these candidates have to navigate between being too nasty and showing a positive vision and keeping in the race. >> you mentioned marco rubio. there will be an extra focus on him tonight. >> yes. he really needs to have a really strong performance. he needs to show he can go off script and not a robot candidate. there is a focus on that emphasizing that part of his political background. he needs to show he can be more off the cuff and intelligent. >> donald trump in south carolina at last check, he was up around 16 points, i believe. primary voters in that state are not just evangelical. nearly 70% of the voters are evangelical. donald trump did well with evangelical voters in iowa.
8:10 am
doing well with the so-called god voters. >> it is interesting he is navigating that balance so well so far. i think part of what cruz knows with the opening there, when he did the new york values attack, that was not sailing in the wind. he knew that was effective. what i'm looking for tonight is trump's use of the foul language. this is the bible belt and polite culture. that language in front of children is not going to go well. >> a lot to watch. elise jordan, thank you. turning to the democrats where president obama is a major talking behind for hillary clinton and bernie sanders after thursday's debate. nbc's kelly o'donnell has more on that. >> reporter: good morning. hillary clinton and bernie sanders will spend part of the
