that's wholly different than allowing companies to hacking devices and data. >> denise: publicly, the company says it doesn't have the technology to do what the f.b.i. wants it to do. a top industry official says apple could theoretically write the software to comply with the ruling. >> dan: the american road and transportation builders association put out the annual bridge report today saying 10% of bridges in the u.s. were considered structurally deficient in 2015. the f.a.a. reviewed records and ohio ranked 12th for deficient bridges of the 27,000 structures in our state close to 2,000 need repairs in 2015 and that's 7% of our bridges. >> all right. let's take a live look at the feazel roof camera chester

most items were returned along with a brutally honest letter. >> dear ryan i found your wallet and driver's license and address and here are your credit cards and other important stuff. i kept the cash because i needed weed and metro card because well, the fare is it 2.75 and the wallet because it is kind of cool. >> the wallet napper has taste. a $45 leather card holder. riley isn't upset the person kept his cash and creeped out to know things like his blood type and where he lives. >> unbelievable. >> i have had my wallet stolen and never got anything back. >> bummer. >> 3 down and three to go. a g.o.p. town hall in south carolina. which will include ohio governor john kasich. next at 5:00 our analysis of last night's event. what to hear from candidates tonight. you have seen them all over
5:26 pm
how easy are they? more importantly, how do they taste? the tasty test still ahead. >> let's go to independence cloud cover thickening up and sun glare not bad.
5:27 pm
5:28 pm
5:29 pm
>> dan: you probably see a couple of these a day but have you ever whipped up one of the the recipes? we put tasty cooking tutorials to a test. say that five times fast. coming up in a few minutes. >> denise: republican presidential frontrunner donald trump will be front and center carolina.
5:30 pm
the preview of the town hall. what can we expect? >> well, you know, dan and denise it could be a big night for john kasich. he will be at this town hall on cnn. the problem for governor kasich and governor bush is that donald trump continues to be the biggest story in this campaign and today he is getting criticism from an unlikely source. >> donald trump has been attacked from all sides. and trump is facing criticism from a higher level during a discussion with reporters on his flight from mexico to rome, the pope took on trump's position that a wall should be built on the border of the united states and mexico. >> a person who thinks only about building walls wherever they may be located are not building bridges is not a christian. >> trump, who never backs down from a fight took the pope's comments head on.
5:31 pm
the pope, i like the pope f. it is good i like the pope. if it is bad, i don't like the pope. >> the pope is a popular figure in the united states. a poll shows in september a 63 approval rating. for a sitting pontiff to weigh in on an american election is unpress debted and appropriate francis specifically did not have an opinion who americans should vote for, he made it clear he wasn't impressed by trump. >> i say this man is not a christian if he said things like that. >> trump not concerned about the pope's popularity responding to his comments. >> for a religious leader to question a person's faith is disgraceful. i am proud to be a christian. as president, i will not allow christianity to be consistently attacked and weakened. >> reporter: the question is, will this battle impact the voting in south carolina. it is a state rich with social conservatives and not many
5:32 pm
how the 2016 race remains impossible to predict. >> you can bet this will come up tonight when donald trump and jeb bush and john kasich appear at a town hall answering questions directly from voters at 8:00 at the university of south carolina and can you see it on cnn. dan and denise? >> i can't even believe this whole pope thing, ryan. the pope's comments may not have much of an impact on south carolina but what about the rest of the country? we have almost 70 million catholics in this country. >> yeah. you know, where you guys are in ohio is a good example that perhaps in the short term this is not a problem for donald trump. as he moves forward in the campaign it could come back to haunt him. >> as the primary season moves forward they will be in southern socially conservative states
5:33 pm
popular as he is throughout the country and positions like immigration and this whole flap is all over is not necessarily a popular position. as you move forward, the pope has a 60% approval rating among all americans over 70% approval rating among catholics and like in ohio far more catholics than a place like south carolina. this could become a problem. as we have talked about many times dan and denise, whatever donald trump does, it doesn't seem to have an impact on loyal supporters who have been with him from the beginning. >> dan: he seems to be untouchable yet again. >> let's talk about ohio governor john kasich. and going to the polls he will win in south carolina that's out of the question. what does he have to do to finish strong and where does he need to finish to keep his campaign rolling off the momentum of new hampshire. >> reporter: i don't know the kasich campaign looks at anything that happens in south carolina as having any impact on
5:34 pm
they knew this was not a state where he would necessarily finish that strong and it is a matter of beating expectations. >> if he can be above the bottom 3, he will be in a good position f. he can ellipse someone like marco rubio all the better. polls don't reflect this will happen. it is clear the kasich campaign is looking further down the road and want to keep their heads above water where he will be politically more competitive and i don't think anything necessarily spells the end of his campaign unless his performance is so bad he decides it is not worth it. i don't think anyone assumed john kasich would have too strong of a performance in south carolina and will ride high on the good performance in new hampshire and tell donors we could potentially be an alternative to donald trump down the road. >> denise: all right. ryan nobles. thank you, ryan. >> dan: get continuing
