tv   Erin Burnett Out Front  CNN  February 10, 2016 4:00pm-5:01pm PST

4:00 pm
armored vehicles. >> i've always been worried about them, especially with isis now in sinai. very good report. that's it for me. thanks very much for watching. next breaking news. donald trump live in this hour at his first rally since his big new hampshire win last night as two more candidates drop out of the race late today. john kasich already telling cnn he doesn't expect to win south carolina. what is his strategy? and the fight for black voters. bernie sanders met today with the reverend al sharpton. should hillary clinton be very worried? let's go "outfront." good evening. i'm erin burnett. outfront tonight, the breaking news. donald trump fresh out of a landslide victory in new hampshire about to rally supporters. this will be the first time he's taking the stage since his
4:01 pm
double digit win. that should happen any moment here. these are live pictures out of pendleton, south carolina. that's right, south carolina. the state's republican primary is now the next major test for trump and the other gop candidates and there are just nine days to go. kasich did put in that strong second place showing in new hampshire. he's now trying to lower expectations in south carolina. >> well, yeah. we're going to compete here. we don't expect to win here. >> well, that comes as the republican field narrowed dramatically today. chris christie, the bombaster governor from new jersey, suspending his campaign and heading home to jersey after finishing sixth in new hampshire and a bitter defeat for the man who focused his time and effort in the granite state. carly fiorina suspending her campaign today finishing with only 4% of the vote last night.
4:02 pm
that's two out. that would have been 11% of the total in new hampshire. we begin with jim acosta know tonight who is at the trump rally in south carolina. trump may be riding a wave of momentum. it was a big victory last night. he outperformed his polls, but now everybody is gunning for him. >> reporter: that's right. and from what we can tell, he is not changing his strategy at all. we're inside a livestock arena in south carolina. just about every seat is filled. he is firmly back in place as the gop frontrunner, but the field is narrowing and that means the battle for the republican nomination is about to get even more intense in a state where politics is a full contact sport. >> god bless the great state of south carolina. >> reporter: in south carolina, a state well known for its cut throughout politics, the knives are out for donald trump. >> the only way to beat donald trump is to highlight the simple
4:03 pm
truth of his record. it is not conservative. >> reporter: and it's not just ted cruz and jeb bush with trump in their sights. >> we need someone that creates a strategy, not bouncing back and forth saying i'm the strong man, i'll take care of it. he has no clue. >> reporter: every candidate in the party's establishment lane is in hot pursuit of the gop frontrunner, including marco rubio. >> the pressure will be on him to say here's what i'm going to do with isis and bring jobs back. i don't think you can keep saying trust me. i've got a plan for it. >> reporter: that sense of urgency is due in part to the winnowing field of candidates as chris christie and carly fiorina dropped out of the race. >> i'm not going to be a pincushion or a marshmallow, but i'm also not going to spend my time trying to trash other people. i'll tell you why. because if this message works,
4:04 pm
it's fantastic. >> reporter: trump is gearing up for a south carolina brawl, unleashing a new attack ad on cruz. >> who runs a campaign accused of dirty tricks? >> reporter: cruz is firing back with an ad that mocks trump as an action figure toy. >> i'm going to take your house. >> reporter: trump is also facing tougher questions on releasing his tax record. >> i fight like hell not to spend taxes. >> reporter: the new york tabloids that aren't letting up. >> the owner of the daily news, in fact i think it is out of business. >> reporter: he was making campaign stops here in south carolina. trump already has the support of the state's lieutenant governor here and one gop strategist said the current thinking is that the state's governor nikki haley will be sitting on the sidelines not making an endorsement before
4:05 pm
this primary, erin. that could be a boost to donald trump because that means she won't be throwing her support behind a establishment candidate that might pose a threat to donald trump. >> thank you very much. maybe keeping herself in the running for the vp. john king is outfront. you've got trump and cruz each with a win in their column, so how do they stack up in south carolina? >> we've got a heavyweight fight in south carolina. it's a state with a lot of ev evangelica evangelicals. it's a state with a vibrant tea party movement. you have a lot of blue collar people who will listen to donald trump when he talks about immigration, when he talks about bashing china, when he delivers the touch message on trade. the last polls we've seen, donald trump had about a
4:06 pm
15-point lead above cruz. south carolina does sometimes have a history of sticking it to new hampshire. remember, john mccain had a big win there in 2000. george w. bush rolled in south carolina and got his bid back on track. there's good terrain for both of them. you see the nasty ads already because they understand, erin, whoever wins south carolina gets a bounce in all those southern states that come just down the road in a little bit. >> that huge super tuesday. after trump's big win last night, john, i know you've been talking to sources about the path to the nomination. when you look at trump a few days ago before new hampshire, some people were getting a little dim on that. now you're hearing, no, it's not difficult for him to lay out a path to get a nomination. >> he >> reporter: here's a little bit of history. now we're breaking rules this
4:07 pm
year. cruz and trump have a pretty good head start in getting the nomination. doesn't mean cruz can't get there. the reason a lot of republicans think trump has a better path right now, erin, is because what we've seen happen, even in that second place finish in iowa. he took some of ted cruz's evangelical support. he won some places where mitt romney won. even running strong in the fu pla -- few places in new hampshire where john huntsman won a few years ago. it's much easier to go state by state, coalition by coalition, and get donald trump to the republican nomination. doesn't mean cruz doesn't have a path, but it is easier to draw it for trump. >> rick tyler and jeffrey lord.
4:08 pm
rick, let me start with you because you just heard john king say donald trump has a better path to the nomination than ted cruz. how are you going to stop him? >> donald trump has a low ceiling. donald trump's own worst enemy is himself. it's usually his own words that have done him in. that's what happened in iowa. he pretends to be a populist on tv, but he's really the establishment. he's held positions throughout his life that have not been consistently conservative or conservative at all. when he was asked what a conservative was in the last debate, he couldn't tell people. he didn't know what it was. >> when you talk about a ceiling, it's pretty important, isn't it, rick, that he was able to outperform his polls in new hampshire? he came out solidly above that. he broke through that ceiling there with the competition of six or seven other people.
4:09 pm
>> he was expected to win in new hampshire and he did that. ted cruz came in third in a blue state and did very well, which shows you ted cruz has a much broader base of support than people would like to give him credit for, but now we're heading to the south. we're in south carolina where you have a 68% of an evangelical vote. it's not just evangelicals. it's the tea party and the libertarians. they've come all behind ted cruz. ted cruz can beat the establishment candidate, whoever it ends up being. donald trump has a very low ceiling. >> all right. we're going to break in right now and just listen to donald trump who has just taken the stage in pendleton, south carolina. >> and i said i think that's a good thing. i hope that's like for us. and we won by a lot, really, a lot. and the reason is that people are tired of losing in this country. we're losing all the time. people are tired of stupidity,
4:10 pm
incompetence. we're not going to have it anymore. we're not going to have it. we had a case where somebody was talking about the anger that they think i have. i'm not an angry person. you're not angry, but we're angry about the way our country is run. and we're not going to let it happen anymore. we're not going to let it happen. so this has been going on and we went up to new hampshire. it was an amazing experience actually because i've known it long, for a long time. many friends live in new hampshire. many friends live here by the way, i have to tell you, but many friends up in new hampshire. the original polls were so high. by the way, the original polls, which just came out here, we're through the roof. we are high. we are high. the problem you have, and i saw it up there -- and yet people
4:11 pm
are smart. these politicians they say anything. like i'm very, very big on the second amendment. i think most people know that. and they'll say donald trump does not respect the second amendment. i say what the hell is this guy talking about. the lying is unbelievable. i guess it's part of a process, but the good thing we have a big beautiful microphone. sit down, relax. sit down. we'll be here as long as you want. we may take some questions. should we take some questions? i think so. [ cheering ] >> i think so. let's just have a good time. you know, i got so far in the last couple of days. one hour sleep. when you have victory, you don't need sleep, right? you're going on adrenaline. then what happens is the following day you say, maybe i do need sleep afterall.
4:12 pm
somebody said that's not a problem, mr. trump. we can cancel this or postpone it. are you crazy? i would never. look, this is our group. we have something so special going on. we have something so special going on. the cover of "time magazine" last week, they're talking about it's a movement. it's a movement to take our country back and it is. it's a movement to take our country back. and that's what we're doing, and it's going to be so beautiful. and it started. it actually started with iowa. we did great in iowa. we did great in iowa. had dr. carson been allowed to keep his votes, we would have done even better, but we did great. we started off with 17 people on the republican side. a couple just dropped out today. do you know that? do you know who? carly and christie. so we're down to -- we're
4:13 pm
getting down to pretty good numbers here. we're getting down to low numbers. when i did it -- and i said it was june 16th -- and it takes guts. i say to everybody it takes guts to run for president. not easy. not easy. when you're a successful person -- i've always heard it. if you're a very successful person, the last thing you do is run for office. i never really sort of understood there. that's a certain legitimacy to what you do. i've been in politics all my life, but i've been on the other. i've been a supporter, but i think nobody knows it better than me. one of the things we're doing and one of the things i'm doing is i'm self-funding my campaign, so i can't be bought. i can't be bought by all these people. and i think it's appreciated. i turned down -- i'll tell you. you have a guy like bush, who has his big fund --
4:14 pm
[ booing ] >> i'll be honest. the last thing we need is another bush. that i can tell you. that i can tell you. this guy, he says anything that's on his mind. he's gotten so much money. here's a statistic that just came out. in new hampshire, he spent $39 million and what is he, fourth or fifth? think about it. $39 million. look at all these people standing. this place is unbelievable. the place is massive. look at all these people. i love you too. [ cheering and applause ]
4:15 pm
>> this country is so great the people in this country are so amazing. and you know, all the time no matter where i go it's the same. i go to mobile, alabama. 35,000 people. we go to dallas. 20,000, 21,000 people. we go to oklahoma. 21,000 people. new hampshire, we were packed all the time. we had in a blizzard 5,000 people in arena, the verizon are arena. so beautiful. three of my people were in car accidents coming over. one of them walked over a mile in a blizzard and it turned out he had close to a broken leg. then i said, you're fired for ruining my car. why not? but the people, they have such spirit.
4:16 pm
such beautiful spirits, all of you. i felt it was very important to self-fund because i think nobody knows the system better than me. guys are getting all of this money. i would have had more than anybody. i was turning down friends, people that i know, 5 million, 10 million. people would give me anything. they put them in these pacs and they're crooked as hell. the pacs aren't supposed to be running the campaigns, but they're running the campaigns. be honest. it's out of control, but it's hard for me because my whole life i take money. i make money. we make money. we grab money. money, money, i love money. it's true. we get greedy and more and more. then all of a sudden it's like i say, no, i don't want it. i want to do something else. i want to be greedy, but i want to be greedy for the united states.
4:17 pm
we want to bring money into the united states. i really do. to hell with the business stuff. my kids will take the business. my executives will run it. i've built an incredible business. some of the greatest assets in the world. no debt. tremendous cash flow. frankly, turnberry in scotland, buildings in manhattan, the bank of america building in san francisco, 1290 avenue, so many great things. i'm a private person. the pundits, the geniuses, they say, i don't think he's going to run. and i ran. they said i don't believe it. then they said they'll never file formay. it's a single piece of paper. you're signing your life away. there's so many beautiful people in this audience. this is a good -- such a great looking group of people.
4:18 pm
they say he'll never sign it. i signed it. then they said he'll never put in his financials because he's probably not as successful as you think. my financials were almost 100 pages long done by some of the biggest accounting firms and lawyers in washington. i put them in. they said he'll ask for an extension. i said i don't want any extensions. 30 days, boom. certified, done. look at all those cameras. look at that. take a look. take a look back there. is that incredible? wow! wow! wow! do we have any protesters? if we had some protesters, they'll turn some cameras to the protesters? we may have to stage a protest
4:19 pm
because that's the only way they'll show the size of these crowds. how many people? i don't know. maybe about 10,000. >> there's donald trump speaking in pendleton. i'm still with jeffrey lord and rick tyler. jeff lord, this is back to the donald, the bombastic donald trump, that we knew before his disappointing performance in iowa. this is the donald trump. he's back. polls again are at the top of his speech. >> well, you know, it's on to the next state and on to the next campaign. this is what you do. he ran a great campaign in new hampshire. he ran frankly a pretty good campaign in iowa. he was only a couple points behind senator cruz. he's in there and he's going to slug. this is what presidential candidates do. i expect him to do more of it. rick tyler was just out there dishing. i expect to hear this kind of
4:20 pm
thing. there's not much more to say than we're going to see a lot of this until february 20th. then we're going to move on beyond that and this is going to get a little more intense. >> rick, what do you say to this? you've got donald trump here of course. now he's got people behind him in h iz shot. he's got his thousands of people. he's back at his big rallies. >> i was wondering who was going to replace garrison keilar. this is like the "seinfeld" candidacy. the whole campaign is about nothing. i didn't hear one substantive policy. nothing about job creation or what's going on in north korea right now. nothing about defeating isis. this is a "seinfeld" candidacy. it's about nothing. >> jeff, what do you say to that? he spent the first several minutes of the speech talking about his polls, campaign, and performance. not his policy. >> it's the beginning of his
4:21 pm
speech here. rick, rick, the campaign has been going on for months. >> it's like a show. i'd paid money to go see that. >> rick, rick, i'm beginning to think of senator cruz's words when one loses, one doesn't like it and you lost. >> we're not losing, jeffrey. we're winning. >> well, when you come in third, that's not a victory, rick. >> well, we came in first in iowa. you're one. we're one. that is just amazing. >> well, your contempt for the voters of south carolina is amazing. they seem to be liking what he's having to say. >> i like it too. >> contempt for the voters of south carolina, rick, from ted cruz? >> of course not. he has contempt for the voters of south carolina because he doesn't tell them anything. it's a campaign about nothing. it's like listening to the weather report. >> rick, rick, who is the judge
4:22 pm
of this, the people of south carolina or you? >> well, the people of south carolina will be the judge of this and they will show up to his events. whether they vote for him, like they did in iowa, remains to be seen. we're going to run a campaign about conservative issues. the reason he doesn't talk about being conservative or issues is because he doesn't have a record on them. all his record is liberal progressive views. you can't talk about that. >> i find that very interesting because those exit polls from new hampshire show that those who self-describe themselves as very conservative put donald trump 12 points ahead of ted cruz on being very conservative. apparently those people who were very conservative disagree with you. >> this duel will continue. thank you both so very much. marco rubio, how did he figure out saturday's debate wasn't his best performance and what he said about it.
4:23 pm
bernie sanders meeting with the reverend al sharpton today. yes, this is that meeting. should hillary clinton be afraid?

4:27 pm
to south carolina. marco rubio told cnn he is still better than either of them. >> the fact of the matter is jeb has no foreign policy experience. he was governor a long time ago. the world has changed a lot in the last ten years and foreign policy has changed a lot in the last five years. no one on that stage has more experience or has shown better judgment or a better understanding of the national security threats before this country than i have. >> all right. this is going to be a fight to the death. who will be the last man standing? dana bash is outfront. >> reporter: john kasich arrived in south carolina basking in the glow of his strong new hampshire finish. >> but what i celebrated last night was the army of volunteers who had really delivered the victory. >> reporter: to be sure, kasich was a distant second behind donald trump, but he finished first among republicans vying for the mainstream mantle, leaving the gop field even more
4:28 pm
scrambled and kasich preparing for political incoming. >> i'm not going to be a pincushion or a marshmallow, but i'm also not going to spend my time trying to trash other people. >> reporter: it's a fine line for kasich, who is calling card in new hampshire was his upbeat campaign. >> when you spend all your time trying to drag somebody else down, maybe people have had enough of it. >> reporter: jeb bush needs a strong palmetto state showing to survive. today, as south carolina voter teed bush up for a preemptive strike against kasich -- >> how would you differentiate yourself from kasich? >> i like john kasich. he's been an effective governor. >> reporter: iowa governor accepted federal dollars to expand medicaid under obamacare. >> the governor was for
4:29 pm
expanding medicaimedicaid, whic part of obamacare. >> reporter: he went after kasich on defense spending. >> john kasich also has this belief that you can, you know, save money so much that you can't -- that on a net basis you don't have to increase defense spending. i don't think that's an honest evaluation of the needs of the military right now. >> reporter: jeb bush already cut this anti-kasich web video. >> we need to rebuild the military. >> reporter: 16 years ago, george w. bush used south carolina to turn his primary campaign around and is still popular with republicans. jeb is hoping to capitalize on that. >> there's no doubt in my mind that jeb bush will be a great commander and chief for our military. >> reporter: marco rubio's campaign is hoping the bush/kasich battle gives him time to recover from a devastating fifth place finish
4:30 pm
in new hampshire. >> our disappointment tonight is not on you. it's on me. >> reporter: rubio sources tell me they hope kasich's battle in south carolina will jeb bush helps rubio because for him the name of the game is just to try to climb back up where he was perceived to be only a few days ago. he was the establishment favorite. that was before he plummeted in new hampshire thanks in large part to bombing in saturday night's debate. rubio said he had no idea how bad it was on stage. it wasn't until he got off stage and got on social media and talked to his friends that he really started to get it. >> mike turner and will weatherford. turner, let me start with you. john kasich had a great night last night. he put every single he had in new hampshire and it helped him, but now it might hurt because you have jeb bush who devoted resources to south carolina for
4:31 pm
months. can john kasich make that up in ten days? >> voters look at the important issues. we have a struggling economy, staggering deficits, and concerns on national security. john kasich not only has a record and a plan, but he's delivered. he balanced the federal budget. not a plan to just plan it, but balance it. he's created state jobs in ohio. he certainly understands our security issues. he's called for increases in defense spending. >> how do you tell that to voters in a state that don't know him? he's admitted this himself. he doesn't have name familiarity. he's got this big victory, but he's going into must place, must win states, without a whole lot of investment time. >> he balanced the federal budget as the budget chairman for the house. he was were well known. that budget battle was very well known. john kasich led it and did.
4:32 pm
the voters do know. they know he's strong on defense and balancing the budget. >> will, jeb bush riding high after last night and he survived. chris christie did not. c carly fiorina did not. >> they got blown out in iowa and did poorly in new hampshire, so they are spending all their money going negative. >> kasich says bush did poorly. bush finished in fourth place, which was -- everyone saying so great, but on the math of it -- you have to look at the math. it's only 1,000 votes ahead of marco rubio. does governor kasich have a point will? >> no, he doesn't have a point. i like governor kasich, but i have to be honest with you. i feel sorry for him. this is a guy who thought he was running for president of new hampshire and not president of the united states of america. someone forgot to tell him there's other states you have to run in.
4:33 pm
governor bush is in south carolina today with 40 paid staffers, tv that's been going on for weeks, and certainly hundreds if not thousands of volunteers ready to go. governor kasich is a nice guy. he's not ready to be commander and chief. jeb bush conversely has. he's got plenty of resources, plenty of infrastructure, and he's ready to take this campaign into the long haul. >> congressman turner, you also have -- when you talk about the 40 staffers in south korea success, george w. bush getting involved. going to be campaigning for his brother in south carolina. here's a brief clip. >> jeb has dealt with crises has a governor of florida and he did so with resolve, steadiness, and a calmness. >> w. is more popular in polls than barack obama.
4:34 pm
the point still stands. doesn't that popularity really hurt john kasich? >> no. i think jeb bush can continue to spin. it's not translated yet into votes. john kasich has a record. he has a national record. he can talk about how he balanced the federal budget and it's not just a one-off. he went to the state of ohio and balanced their budget. he took the economy and turned it around. he worked with the house armed services committee. he understands the issues of defense and washington. all of his issues are -- >> but congressman -- >> it's not just some platitudes of, well, i happen to have a plan for you. i have experience and i have delivered. >> go ahead, will. >> maybe he balanced the budget, but he's increased spending in the state of ohio by 43%. there was a bill that passed in congress in 2009. it was called obamacare. president obama jammed that bill
4:35 pm
with nancy pelosi down the throats of congress. obamacare legislation on the state legislature. that's not conservativconservat. what they know about him are his liberal policies which helped him in new hampshire. those liberal policies aren't going to help him in south korea. >> i'm going to hit pause here. they fight with each other. you have trump and cruz glad these two are fighting. still a very crowded field. next, bernie sanders meeting with al sharpton in new york today courting the black vote. it's not well lit because this was just a breakfast. they were talking. how big of an issue is this for hillary clinton? hillary clinton completely absent from the cameras today. why? will we see a new hillary clinton at tomorrow night's debate?

4:39 pm
bernie sanders working overtime to broaden his support after a commanding victory in new hampshire, a state that is
4:40 pm
94% white. the vermont senator is looking to south carolina and beyond, states that have a much larger percentage of african-americans to say the least. this is a crucial voting block in 2005. 66% of blacks voted in the general election. bernie sanders met with the reverend al sharpton. joe johns is outfront. joe, this is a very significant meeting for bernie sanders. >> it's interesting that he didn't go straight to south carolina, but he came to harlem first to meet with reverend al sharpton. this is critical. it's because there are a lot of african-american voters in south carolina and a lot of them so far have been aligned with hillary clinton. and the question is, how does bernie sanders make inroads into that grouping? didn't get much from al sharpton quite frankly. he didn't get an endorsement. sharpton said he's going to wait until he got an opportunity to
4:41 pm
talk to hillary clinton. talking to people behind the scenes, there's a real suggestion is that reverend sharpton has concerns about both of these candidates. he's concerned that bernie sanders might not be able to follow through in the promises he's made on the campaign trail. he's concerned also about hillary clinton and how bill clinton, back when he was president, did things like sign into the law the welfare reform act or the crime bill that sent so many african-americans to jail. bill clinton has said he regrets that, but the question for african-americans is, oops, i made a mistake enough enough to get on the band wagon with hillary clinton. a lot of complex dynamics right there in south carolina that could play out with some of the other african-american populations in some of the other cities. >> crucial al sharpton took that meeting and it was important for bernie sanders to come to new
4:42 pm
york to meet with al sharpton before heading to south carolina. outfront now, van jones and michael nutter, former mayor of philadelphia and a hillary clinton supporter. van, joe is speaking to this. the conventional wisdom is hillary clinton will do very well with black voters in the upcoming contest, but this doesn't necessarily bear out. bernie sanders has a history of supporting causes that are important to the african-american community as well. can he get enough of the black vote to win? >> well, we will see. obviously, hillary clinton has a formidable lead because she has put in the work. she has long standing relationships in the black community and particularly in south carolina. at the same time, there's a foot race on over race right now. it's not like hillary clinton has only strengths and no weaknesses and sanders only has
4:43 pm
weaknesses and no strengths. bernie sanders was a civil rights fighter. he marched. it was a strong supporter of reverend jesse jackson in the 1980s. his voice is now appealing to a lot of young african-americans. he has a shot here. i think the mythology that the black community is a monolith and going to march behind the clintons is a mythology because it's going to come apart very quickly. >> bernie sanders has a long record in the 60s. arrested for protesting against segregation in public schools in washington. are you concerned that the more the black community learns about him the more they say may, wait a minute, this whole portrayal of him only winning in a white state that's next door to his state is not actually a picture of the real man? >> well, i want to go back to something that van said. first of all, it is in fact a complete myth that the
4:44 pm
african-american is a monolith. they are any number of folks that have a wide variety of opinions. senator sanders is doing the right thing by trying to attract african-americans, latinos, all people to his campaign. that's what any candidate should do and at the same time secretary hillary clinton is not going to take anything for granted. there are no automatics in any of this, and so there will be an appropriate campaign and a fight, if you will, for african-american support by these candidates. but again, van points out, secretary clinton does have a very long history from her time as first lady in arkansas up through her time as secretary of state of maintaining and developing and growing relationships with a wide variety of folks in the african-american community. we've had two contests, and quite honestly they've both have had an historic aspect to them.
4:45 pm
hillary clinton first woman to win caucuses in iowa. senator sanders, first jewish american to win a primary. so there is a contest here. it will be a contest of ideas. i want to encourage the viewers, the listeners, people paying attention to what's going on to listen to the ideas. details matter. try to understand what is the track record of the person, the ability to get stuff done, and implement the many things that are being proposed. that's what a campaign is about. >> a lot of people are saying look at the south. super tuesday, a large part of the electorate is black. you're talking about relationships with the african-american community. they're going to mostly vote for hillary clinton. if that conventional wisdom is wrong, bernie sanders could have a real shot at the nomination a lot of people aren't giving him credit for. >> let me tell you where he has an opening, and i think people don't understand. the young generation that's coming up, the black lives matter generation, their number
4:46 pm
one issue -- just like for some latinos, they have 1,000 blessings and 1,000 problems, but the problem is this younger generation. their number one issue is mass incarceration, criminal justice. they look at the clinton's record on infuriated. she came out today, a blistering statement saying, the clintons don't deserve our vote because what they did to black people in the 90s. shocked a lot of people when she came out with that. this is going to be a very interesting contest. ben jealous from the naacp. he came out. then you had a new author come out. you're starting to see a bunch of young african-americans saying you don't get a free pass
4:47 pm
based on what you did in the 90s. bernie sanders has had to walk the plank for his nra vote. he's having to deal with the -- she's having to deal with the 1990s record. >> michelle was not exactly glowing about senator sanders in that particular piece as well. each candidate has issues that they have to deal with, but coming out of that 90s time, being an elected official and seeing the devastation of crime and violence mostly, at least in philadelphia, in the african-american community, not commenting on the actual legislation, but having more police officers on the street, dealing with excessive levels of violence in the communities, and seeing the crime rate going down across the united states of america, these are issues that will be debated. but the president has said what he has said. secretary clinton has already stated that she wants to see
4:48 pm
changes from the '94 crime bill and has put forward any number of proposals to reverse those issues. we're into the here and now. they have to move things forward whether it's with the african-american or any other community across the united states of america. delegate count does matter in this race as well. >> thanks to both of you. if past is any prologue, 7% of the voters in new hampshire identified as minority. 49% went to clin top. 50 for sanders. dead heat. both are going to be facing off tomorrow in the pbs news hour. that will be here on cnn and your local pbs station at 9:00 eastern. hillary clinton losing to bernie sanders in new hampshire by a staggering 22 points. so what does she need to say tomorrow night to get her voters back?

4:53 pm
which you'll see live here on cnn. after last night's lorks exit polls reveal a number of warning signs, something clinton has acknowledged. >> i know i have some work to do, particularly with young people, but i'll repeat again what i've said this week. even -- even if they are not supporting me now, i support them. >> outfront our senior political analyst david gergen, former presidential adviser for four presidents. let's talk about young voters. this is crucial. 83% of young voters in new hampshire went for sanders. 83%! i don't know when we've seen a number so overwhelming. the age group she carried was only 65 and over. what does that say? >> she's got a problem. and she has to fix it before the general election if she wins the nomination. a couple of things going on in her favor. frequently young people rebel against their parents.
4:54 pm
but they embrace their grandparents because they love the values of their grandparents. there's a quality here with bernie sanders in his mid-70s fits that model. it's important, when gloria stein ham and madeleine albright went out and -- basically scolded them. >> sanders won women overall. 54% to 44%. >> absolutely. and young women. what i've discovered, i've made a lot of mistakes trying to communicate to the younger generation. you can't tell them your values only. you have to go to them and hear about their values. they have a different perspective on the world. this has been the older generation telling the younger generation. respect them for why they are different and have a different perspective and appealing to that. >> which is an interesting way of putting it. here's the other issue she had. we've seen this from the
4:55 pm
beginning. word clouds. which words do you think of when you think of a candidate. she has always had words come up of dishonest, untrustworthy. last night that showed up in the exit polls. 45% of those who voted democrat said she was honest and trustworthy. not even half. bernie sanders, 89%. >> absolutely. this is a democratic primary. these are democratic voters and independent. doesn't include a republican where the dishonesty -- >> so you don't have republicans who are going to say that just because they dislike her. >> i think this is a reason she needs to regroup and taking a little time off the road. i have worked with her. i've never had an honesty problem. there's something going on here i don't quite get. let me give you an example among young people. i am a big education reform person. i believe in charters. she was seen as a friend of charter schools in the past. which is very important to a lot
4:56 pm
of young people. this campaign she's come out against charter schools because she wants to please the teacher's union. >> what is going on? >> all right. well, thank you very much, david gergen. she is taking this day to regroup and get ready for tomorrow night. we'll be right back. then you might beformance laptogearcentric.e bff? right now, all pcs and printers are on sale! like this hp laptop for just $199.99! office depot officemax. gear up for great®. dad, yoh no, i'll take you up to me off rthe front of the school. that's where your friends are. seriously, it's, it's really fine. you don't want to be seen with your dad? no, it's..no.. this about a boy? dad! stop, please. oh, there's tracy. what!
