now they feel they have to change their strategies. you can see it, you can see it in the words that they use. they discuss. it is clear that donald trump is campaign. he is dictating the terms of the debate. and now all of the other campaigns are struggling to try to respond to it. look, they're all acknowledging it, too. i have scott walker on the show. he acknowledges the issue that trump is sort of eclipsing everybody here a little bit. he's pleading for patience. it's crystal clear, it's onald trump's party right now and everybody else are just guests at it. >> week or two there was a speculation and rumors, i should say, about joe biden running for president. where do we stand on that right now? that seems to have quieted down a little bit. >> i think joe biden quieted down. when we heard him for the first time talk about it and we realized he's emotionally banged up. it's not like he had the fire in the belly to do this. one of the things we'll examine
on the show is how difficult this will be for joe biden. the coalition that allowed barack obama to knock off hillary clinton does not exist right now. that coalition is sort of fractured between bernie sanders, hillary clinton has a piece of it. can joe biden somehow do what barack obama did? i think a lot of democrats are skeptical of that. that's not been the history of biden's previous political campaigns. but at this point, i don't think what biden is pondering right now has anything to do with what coalition can he do. decision. is he ready to call it quits to his political career. by not running, that's what he'd be doing. >> chuck, we'll see you in a few minutes. stick around for meet the press with chuck today at 10:30 after "today in new york." thanks, chuck. we have new information on a car crash in the bronx. police have now charged a 68-year-old driver with dwi after he lost control of his car. you can see it in that security camera video there.

comes ben carson with 18%. ready for this? nobody else is in double digits. scott walker, ted crews, jeb bush, marco rubio, carly fiorina. anybody else i haven't named, less than 5%. if you add up the first and second choices on the republican side, ben carson and donald trump are actually tied. ben carson, the highest favorable rating among republicans. of course, it is donald trump that is dictating things. him being on top is not the surprise this morning. he's been dominating all the polls in every state, the media. it turns out he's getting into the heads of his opponents as well. we put together some examples of just how just in the past few weeks when trump talks the other republicans feel forced to respond. >> make america great again. make america great again. >> it's not too late for america. with your help, we can make+(o)w this country great again. >> the issue is not that america isn't great.
