3:00 am
killings. >> this is "new day" with chris cuomo, alisyn camerota and michaela pereira. good morning. welcome to "new day". it's monday, february 22nd, 6:00 in the east. are the primaries over? is trump unstoppable? clinton now in a position to run away? those are the big hyped questions you will be hearing a lot this week. but they will be answered quickly. 16 states head to the polls with super tuesday a week away. all the presidential hopefuls will be on stage on cnn. so tomorrow night we've got clinton and bernie sanders who will take the stage in the in the stage that will make a statement. >> can't wait to watch that. republicans down to five candidates. rubio and cruz battling. who will will become top rival into tomorrow's nevada caucuses.
3:01 am
where will jeb bush supporters and backers go now? the last showdown take place thursday night at a cnn debate in houston. we have complete coverage. chris frates is live in las vegas. what's the latest, chris? >> reporter: hey, good morning from sin city, alisyn. the top three finishers in south carolina bringing their message to voters here in nevada. ted cruz arguing he's the only true conservative in the race. marco rubio saying he's the only candidate to unite republicans to defeat democrats in november. a reorder republican field barn storming ahead of the nevada caucuses. >> it is crunch time. we have to go out and vote. >> reporter: trump is looking to build on his momentum after back-to-back victories, with his sights set on super tuesday.
3:02 am
>> we are going one after another. are we going to win georgia >> reporter: stirring up controversy by retweeting this message claiming both cruz and rubio are ineligible to be potus. >> somebody said he's not. and i retweeted it. we start dialogue. it's is very something. >> i'm going to spend zero time on his interpretation of the constitution with regards to eligibility. and i'm going to spend all my time talking about what this should be about. >> reporter: it is a favorite trump attack. texas senator ted cruz is sharpening his counterattack. >> for folks who are concerned that donald trump is not the best candidate to go head to head with hillary clinton in november, it is becoming clearer and clearer that we are the one campaign that can beat donald trump. indeed, we're the only campaign that has beaten donald trump >> reporter: he is claiming he is the new face of the
3:03 am
conservative moment. >> of the people left in this race, no one can unite this movement faster than i can. we will unite the republican party and the conservative movement. >> reporter: one candidate missing from action here in the silver state, jeb burk. he dropped out after a disappointing finish in south carolina. the once enormous republican field down to just five candidates going into tomorrow's caucuses. alisyn, chris, back to you guys. >> chris frates looking good for a man who has played crapped the last 17 hours straight. ron brownstein and "meet the press" david gregory is here with us now. and executive editor mark no smile present. i have a for you, ron. put up the standings. i will do it in my head from
3:04 am
memory. i'll do it from memory. there you go. this idea there will be coalescing around one and that, and only that, will allow you to go after trump. i don't see the map in favor of that now. if you take rubio, bush, kasich, you add them together, you cannot beat trump. i'm not giving you cruz because i don't think those people go to the candidate that you're saying would be the establishment. >> it's not clear there is going to be coalescing. we have pretty clear patterns. donald trump is transcending the previous races. strong across gender lines. he is running with evangelicals as well as nonevangelicals. donald trump in south carolina won 42% of voters without a college education. that is a remarkable number. the same he got in north carolina. south carolina was as much as
3:05 am
cruz and rubio combined. on the other hand, if you look at the college educated voters on immigration, trade, more dubious of his personality, he was only 25%, chris. much less imposing. rubio beat him among college educated voters. he only beat him narrowly. what you've got is a disproportionate pattern where he is consolidating the blue collar and white collar remains fragmented. right now you have to say donald trump is clearly in the drivers seat. neither cruz neuer rubio have gotten big enough. >> mark, he is in the driver's seat. is that the same thing as unstoppable? how do you see the math? >> ron is absolutely right they have a plan right now to defeat donald trump. as chris goes through the numbers, you can't assume all of jeb bush supporters will go to marco rubio. you can't assume when chris
3:06 am
christie got out all his supporters will go to marco rubio. if john kasich were to get out, you can't assume they all go to marco rubio. it becomes a math game at this point. donald trump, you have tore give the guy credit in the sense he has been able to run a campaign so unorthodox, unwieldy and unpredictable. as we head down to arkansas, alabama, tennessee, he is going to do well. here in washington, just talk to go some of the republican establishment types who might have to do business with donald trump, they are starting to come to the realization they have to convince us with donald trump. yeah. and does that -- we have read all the punditry, david, does that panic then in or do they sort of surrender to this? >> the freakout factor within the party establishment is quite
3:07 am
high. and it's real. and within the republican party, it's kind of panic mode. they are trying to move out of this momentum narrative to actually rolling up some delegates. is there a path for marco rubio? the big concern this morning is john kasich. if john kasich stays in the race, does that hurt rubio? does it make it more difficult for him if not completely derail him. he has to show he can win and not just theoretical. getting as much establishment and donor support behind rubio as possible and find not only just a path toward the nomination, but how does he take on donald trump? how does he disqualify trump? that has to be done soon if the party gets realistic.
3:08 am
>> isn't it the party's mistake? they're afraid. they have to come to grips with. they're worried about. why not embrace what is obvious in front of your face. donald trump is not doing well despite how he makes mod rats feel he is winning because of those things. it is spreading. look at the graph we made up of who you are and how you feel about trump. moderate, conservative, cen tri st. he is split a third, a third, third. >> that is the problem. >> this is something different. this will take us in a different direction of who has a chance and why. he's a third, a third, a third. >> within the republican context, he is appealing across ideological lines, religious lines. he won 44% of evangelicals without a college degree in south carolina. that is the key to the success in the south. if he keeps doing that, ted cruz
3:09 am
will not have enough votes. >> are cruz people, trump people a different flavor, or do you think they can become rubio people? >> i think they will splinter. there is a whole big country out there. many of the ideas, deporting 12 million undocumented immigrants, banning muslims from entering the country temporarily. ratings are up 20 points. they have not included independents and democrats. still looking at 60% or more of those groups overall viewing him unfavorably. in the swing states, if you want to answer the question all day this fall, are you going to provide the decisive vote to let donald trump set is the supreme court for the next 20 years? i don't think they do. they are nervous but they don't have a horse to stop. >> i want to get back to john case a second.
3:10 am
he is not going anywhere before the ohio primary march 15th. >> march 8th, i believe, with michigan is something he has his eye on. he wants to get this to the industrial northwest. he is spending time in massachusetts. a vote on march 1st. he thinks he has a real contrast to some of the others you're seeing in the race. as we start counting numbers, you have to be a more regional candidate. you've got to be able to get up on television, use the paid advertising to really get your message out. so kasich can exist a little bit out there. again, bigger field better for trump. all of these factors that we're talking about don't really show up until the party has a stark choice, which is trump and a more establishment view of how to read the republican party. it will get down to can you win in november, or is this just a huge protest vote? we have talked about the
3:11 am
potential ceiling for donald trump. we don't know if it's not a smaller field. what he has right now appears to be unstoppable way forward because he keeps winning. >> our panel, stick around. we'll talk about the democratic side in a second. stay with cnn all day tomorrow for the caucuses. and thursday night as the remaining five square off in the final debate before super tuesday. wolf blitzer mod rats live from houston, thursday, 8:30 p.m. the democratic race shifts to south carolina. brand-new cnn poll shows hillary clinton has a commanding lead over bernie sanders in the palmetto state. learned that this morning. add that to her big win in nevada of the weekend. big question, can bernie sanders win again? jeff zeleny is live with more. hi, jeff. >> reporter: hey, good morning, michaela. hillary clinton will return this week with a new spring in her
3:12 am
step, with good reason. she controls the opening three contests. she won iowa and nevada. she is not done trying to define bernie sanders. take a listen to what she said over the weekend in houston. >> i don't think it's right to look a person in the eye who's hurting and needs help and tell them if they vote is for you you will get $5,000 in health care but only have to pay $500 for it. you shouldn't say that unless you can really deliver that. >> so hillary clinton is trying to suggest that bernie sanders is promising more than he can deliver. that will be her central message back to south carolina. he is not giving up at all. he will keep an eye to the super tuesday states in a week's time.
3:13 am
yesterday he was campaigning in greenville. he will be campaigning in massachusetts later this afternoon. that is a key super tuesday state. i flew to south carolina over the weekend. he said he will keep fighting until the end in june. this is not over by a long stretch. hillary clinton no doubt returning to south carolina with a new boost of confident. chris? >> jeff, as you were reminding early on, he was down 25 a few weeks ago. wound up losing by five. that's why he draws strength from that. thank you so much. see new south carolina. the uber driver accused of killing six people in michigan is facing charges today. jason brian dalton picked up fares is between his killings and was even looking for fares after the final shooting in the seven-hour rampage. the prosecutor describing him as cooperative and showing no emotion. investigators trying to figure
3:14 am
out what led to the rampage. a live report with much more on this story straight ahead. >> all right. new momentum towards a cease-fire to help slow the violence in war-torn syria. the terms of a provisional agreement are in place. john kerry said it could go into effect in a few days. three sue is side bombers left 122 people dead on sunday. isis claiming responsibility. the state department is denying the u.s. initiated a push for secret peace talks with north korea. "the wall street journal" reporting the obama administration approached kim jong-un's regime, agreeing to drop the condition that pyongyang slow its nuclear program before talks. the north actually floated the idea and the u.s. pulled out when north korea rejected a de-nuclearization. hillary clinton getting her mojo back in nevada. we'll look at clinton's campaign

3:19 am
hillary clinton hoping her win over bernie sanders can help her regain momentum. they fell flat in new hampshire. with south carolina five days away, what can clinton to to make it a winning streak. ron brownstein, david gregory, mark preston. this is the new poll just out 19 minutes ago. this is what we're looking at for south carolina. hillary clinton, 57% right now to bernie sanders's 32%. she's sitting pretty there. is it safe to say she's now on a role? >> well, first of all, i don't think bernie sanders is even playing south carolina. if so, he's only doing so in a cursory way. in many ways his focus is on states where he thinks he can do
3:20 am
better. that's up in the northeast. he is looking to super tuesday. this is a strategy that the sanders's campaign said they were going to put in place well before iowa. they knew going into south carolina they didn't have the african-american vote. right now bernie sanders's plan is to stretch this out, make it a fight for delegates, try to stay in the game. as you go farther into march, you will see states that could be a little bit better for bernie sanders. alisyn to your point, if hillary clinton comes in and just cleans up on super tuesday, that will be problematic. >> david, i want to play a piece of sound for you. gets the blacks versus whites support. we'll talk about that bouncing out of it. but hillary clinton did something people don't give her any credit for, david gregory, which is understanding what her problem is with voters. let's play this piece of sound of hillary clinton defining what
3:21 am
she thinks the problem is for some voters. >> i think there is an underlying question that is in the backs of people's minds. is she in it for us or herself? you know, that's a question that people are trying to sort through. and i'm going to demonstrate that i've always been the same person, fighting for the same values, fighting to make a real difference in people's lives. >> this is what i called, david, a wow, she really gets that is a fundamental question. wait, why isn't she addressing it, david? >> right. acceptance is a piece of that. and being able to reflect back to voters what some of her problems are she sees as a strength. whether she's honest, trustworthy, authentic, certainly up against an opponent in bernie sanders ultimately seen as authentic, is a problem for her.
3:22 am
they are problems among democrats. i think your question is the important one. how does she address it? being honest and addressing it. part of how she can become a better candidate. she has to deal with 245 honest and trustworthy deficit is. certainly for the general election. >> ron, yeah, it also felt they were casting about a message for a while. once bernie sanders zeroed in on income in equality, the deck is rigged, maybe they have honed in on one. they uploaded a new ad in which bill clinton seemed to have fastened on a slow gaen for his wife. listen to this. >> she said what i heard about it, i'm sick. i contacted the mayor.
3:23 am
he said what can i do? she said, the mayor did, what i want hillary to do is go on national television and don't do an interview about politics or anyone else, just talk about why we need all this money. she did. they got the money. she is the what can i do candidate? she is a walking changemaker. >> the what can i do candidate. >> not the most eloquent phrase but it gets to a point. she wandered into the same cul-de-sac she did in 2008. her thing was no we can't. this is a much more positive, yes, we can get things done. the fact that she showed up at the shop floor in nevada is how she is trying to relate. i disagree with david. i don't think she will ever solve the honest and trustworthy
3:24 am
problem. i think that is with her as long as she is a candidate. but bill clinton said he cared about people like him. that is a more realistic goal and a better way to deal with the larger problem. people don't have the same feeling necessarily about him, that he was in it for him as they do about her. that's where she has to make up the ground. >> mark preston, as you know, we have seen in 100 million campaigns, messaging is never about asking a question, it's always about answering a question for your voter base. so they will be moving in that direction. listen, we have the numbers up now. she dominates with black voters in south carolina. she is getting beaten handily with voters in south carolina. you're right, bernie suspect going to focus on south carolina. but this relationship will continue forward. how do you see it playing outcome super tuesday? >> where it hurts her, if she wins the democratic nomination and she has to go without the
3:25 am
support of whites. she will get the democratic white voters if she's the nominee. her focus is to shut bernie sanders out. what we will see today, dove tailing off the video they put out, the change maker video that she can actually get things done, we will see the mothers of five people who have died in police incidents or have died at gun violence down in south carolina. the mothers of sandra bland, eric garner, dontre hamilton, trayvon martin. so is right now the clinton campaign is very focused on not trying to look too far down the road, chris but to say how do we shut bernie sanders out right now. they try to wipe him out super tuesday. they do that through the african-american vote. >> the exit poll in 2008, all the states, hillary clinton beat
3:26 am
barack obama by 15 points in whites, 20 in hispanics and he beat her 4-1 on african-americans. ron, david, mark, thank you. there's so much more to talk about. we will get to it. thanks, guys. great to see you. all right. we are seeing a real tightening in what they will believe distinguishes one from the other. i'll be along for the road for the were cnn town hall tomorrow night 8:00 eastern here of course. we're taking "new day" on the road tomorrow and wednesday. we'll head off to texas. all right. stunning new details emerging about the deadly shooting rampage in kalamazoo, michigan. the suspect is due in court today. we'll bring you a live report ahead. when heartburn hits fight back fast tums smoothies starts dissolving

3:32 am
the alleged shooter say they're in shock. >> he seemed so normal. this is so, so strange. >> reporter: dalton worked as an uber driver. a passenger who rode in his car just before the shooting said he was acting strange. >> we were kind of driving through medians, driving through the lawn, speeding along. and finally once he came to a stop, i just out of the car and ran away. shortly after that, authorities say the nearly seven-hour shooting spree started. 5:42 p.m., a woman is shot several times in a parking lot at an apartment complex. she survived but is in serious condition. 10:08 p.m., richard smith and his 17-year-old son tyler are shot and killed at a car dealership. 10:24 p.m., dalton pulls into this parking lot at a cracker barrel, where he allegedly kills four women in their cars, all over the age of 60. a 14-year-old girl was also shot but survived.

3:38 am
he is accused of gunning down six people and leaving two wounded. joining us live is sheriff richard fuller iii. he is the leading investigators into these shootings. sheriff, thank you for joining us. let's see if you can help us fill in some of the blanks here. we are referring to this man as the uber shooter. you said early on you don't know whether or not his job as a driver was connected to this rampage. now there's been information that he may have been trying to pick up fares in between some of these incidents. can you clarify this for us? >> we do believe that is true. but i would like to make sure people understand i don't want to call him the uber shooter or anything fun like that. i want to make sure people understand this is just another suspect. >> okay, good. toxicology. we heard one of the people in the car with him before the shooting started said he was driving poorly, of medians, in
3:39 am
and out. enough so when he came to a stop, this guy got out and ran. any suspicions on your point whether or not this man is in his right mind? >> speaking to his right mind, i can't. i can tell you that toxicologies are not going to show us anything at this point. what drove this person is something that only that person is likely to know. >> what are you hearing from people who have had contact with him? it does speak to a certain disposition you have seen many times on your job. what have people been telling you who have ben in contact? >> well, i was there when the suspect was taken into custody. i watched his demeanor at that point. i was part of the search effort. when we were able to locate and take him into custody, he gave us no problems and was saying
3:40 am
very little. >> has that remained the same? has he offered any explanation? >> i cannot speak to him asking for counsel yet. i can tell you that he is cooperating with law enforcement and that we are putting together some of the pieces. some of those questions you're asking right now, we will have more answers in the coming days. >> what is your best sense as to what the motivation was here? >> my best sense is somebody that was having an issue at the time and for whatever reason they decided to do what they did. like i said, we will find out more throughout time. and through more conversation cans with this suspect involved in these shootings. >> we do know early on you guys decided this was not about any kind of agenda on a scale of terror or anything like that. but in talking to the families, are you getting a better picture? when can you start sharing is what you know.
3:41 am
obviously that has your community on edge. not just the nature of the shooting but the reason why. >> well, you know, i'm glad you mentioned our community. we are a community filled with grace and care. this is a community who came together to help the victims, to help one another. we had a team put together last night just to talk to the police officers, the firefighters, the ambulance personnel, and the nurses associated with trying to care for all of these victims. so this is a community that cares. as soon as we are able to share more with the community, because of court processes, they will hear more about this case. >> two more quick points, sheriff. no criminal record. any record of mental or health problems? >> those are records that will be more difficult to come out with. that is part of our search right now. all of this started saturday
3:42 am
afternoon about almost 6:00. we have been very active in our investigation from that point. we are fortunate that one of the sheriff department personnel was able to see the suspect vehicle in the city of kalamazoo and we were able to take this suspect into custody. i'm very, very proud of the men and women of law enforcement and this community for doing the things they have done to make this community safe. >> no question you got quick turn around off vehicle i.d. not easy to do. we'll stay in touch, sheriff. please let us know as the families start toll coordinate through you what their needs are. let us know so we can let people know how to heavy. >> thank you. man, did you see that close finish yesterday in nascar?

strength. that is important with national security, defense issues and foreign affairs. >> you talked about his electability. i'm sure you heard the punditry around this. yes, he is a likable candidate. but where does he win? ted cruz just talked about this very clearly. let me play ted cruz for you. >> and he was asked what state can you win? you weren't able to win in iowa, new hampshire, you weren't able to win in south carolina. when can you win a state? and the answer he gave, well, i think we could win florida march 15th. now, that's a fairly admission they don't believe they will win here in nevada. apparently they don't believe they will win any states on super tuesday. >> governor, what's your response on that? >> it's a marathon, not a sprint. look, marco is going to have to win states if he is going to be the nominee. as the field goes, the dynamics
3:56 am
changes. i think the numbers will change. you will see marco's victories start to chalk up as they change. >> you know the math. do you think he can win? >> one state would make his numbers real well is his home state of florida. that's not the only one. obviously he will have a good opportunity to win that state. a huge state. a lot of delegates so he can get well political in a big hurry winning florida. >> polls suggest trump is way out ahead of marco rubio even in his home state of florida. >> this is dynamic. it's changing. if you clear the field and say what do you think? if you had to pick between trump and rubio, rubio has a good chance of winning. it is at least tied and in many states ahead.
3:57 am
>> are you one of the people who is suggesting that john kasich should get out of the race so more support can now go to rubio? >> it's not my place to tell. other people want to get in and out of the race. you have to look who has a realistic shot to win. you have to consolidate support. john kasich has to make his own decision in his own time. i don't think he is the likely nominee. >> donald trump raised the issue of ted cruz's eligibility because of being from canada. then he raised questions about marco rubio's eligibility because his father was born in cuba. basically donald trump retweeted a suggest from a conservative website that marco rubio wasn't eligible.
3:58 am
let me play for you what trump has said about this issue. >> i don't know. i've never looked at it, george. honestly, i have never looked at it. somebody said he's not. somebody tweeted it. i retweet things. we start dialogue. and it's very interesting. >> governor, what's your response to this? >> well, when you want to be president of the united states, i don't know is not a good answer. marco rubio was born in the united states. donald trump said that wasn't an issue with respect to marco's eligibility. it seems reckless. obviously marco rubio is qualified. there's no issue here. it is bizarre. >> tim pawlenty, thanks so much for being on "new day". great to have your endorsement announced here. >> thanks, alisyn. >> what's the landscape like
3:59 am
before super tuesday? let's get right to it. >> the american dream is dead, but we're going to make it bigger and stronger. >> you're down to a core of three candidates. >> the only campaign that can beat donald trump has beaten donald trump. >> i get along with him. even putin called me a genius. >> there is an underlying question. is she in it for us or herself? >> south carolina has the opportunity to make american history. >> i've always been the same person fighting for the same values. >> we are going to see the results of one of the great political upsets in the history of the united states. >> they were intentional, shr b deliberate. >> we were driving through medians, driving through the lawn. >> picked up fares between his killings. >> this is "new day" with chris
4:00 am
cuomo, alisyn camerota and michaela pereira. >> good morning. welcome to your "new day". is donald trump already crossing the line? the gop is in panic mode. 16 states heading to the polls in the next two weeks. on the democratic side, before hillary clinton and bernie sanders at the south carolina primary saturday, they will take part in a cnn town howell. chris will be moderating it. >> to beat donald or to be donald. that is the question for the party. he is savoring a big win in south carolina that showed he can draw from all parts of the party. marco rubio, ted cruz, scramble to go find their 2016 lane. jeb bush's lane found the off-ramp. five remaining republicans will all face off in a cnn debate thursday in houston.
4:01 am
moderated by our man, wolf blitzer. big, big, big right before super tuesday. let's get to your coverage. chris frates in las vegas. chris? >> reporter: hey, good morning from sin city, chris. we are getting ready for the next round in the bruising gop on tuesday. the top three finishers in south carolina taking their message to nevada voters. donald trump arguing he's the guy a top the field. he wants to stay there. ted cruz taking the argument he's the only real conservative. and marco rubio saying he's the only candidate to unite republicans to defeats democrats in november. a reorder republican field is barn storming ahead of the caucuses tuesday. >> it is crunch time. we have to go out and >> reporter: trump is looking to build on his momentum after back-to-back victories, with his sights on super tuesday.
4:02 am
>> we are going one after another. are we going to win georgia? >> reporter: he stirred up controversy after retweeting this. and defending it on abc's "this week." >> somebody says he's not. i retweeted it. we start dialogue. it's very interesting. >> i'm going to spend zero time on his interpretation of the constitution in regards to eligibility and spend all my time talking about what this campaign should be out. >> it is a favorite trump attack. ted cruz, meanwhile, is sharpening his counterattack. >> for folks who are concerned that donald trump is not the best candidate to go head to head with hillary clinton in november, it is becoming clearer and clearer we are the one campaign that can beat donald trump and we are the only campaign that has beaten donald trump. >> he is the new face of the conservative movement.
4:03 am
>> of the people left in this race, no one can unite this movement faster than i can. we will unite the republican party and the conservative movement. >> one candidate missing from action in the silver staeurbgts j state, jeb bush. the huge field down to five candidates going into tomorrow night's debate. i have to get back to it. i'm hot at the craps table. >> you get to it. ladies, great to see you both. margaret, let's start with the buzz word of the day or the phrase freakout factor. is the gop freaking out about donald trump? >> if they're not, they should be, alisyn. that's the reality of the situation. we as republicans have gotten
4:04 am
ourselves in position where the leading contender for the nomination has hardly been represent for more than a couple of years. no positions are recognizable. >> let alone to the republican party. this train seems to have lost the station. what kind of earthquake kind of event could derail the momentum donald trump has from behind them. if you consolidate behind a candidate you only have until march 15th when winner takes all stakes begin. you have to fight for it. you can't just sort of give it away. >> i see you shaking your head. what are you not liking about what margaret is saying >> that's not stratrue. he is free market principles. his history looks a lot like ronald rains who was once pro-choice and pivoted to make a
4:05 am
change. donald trump recognizes there are some policies within the republican party we have to change on. for instance, americans have been paying into social security for their whole lives. it is unfair for the government to all of a sudden take that away. that's one example. he said repeatedly, i don't want people dying on the street. i want to make sure people in dire conditions have health c e care. donald trump is bringing in independents and still winning conservatives and evangelicals. he is broadening this in a great way. >> to that point, margaret, let me show you some exit polls. that's what voters spoke to, the ones who supported trump and the ones who didn't support trump. brings change. 45% felt he was the candidate who brought the most change. shares my values. 34% that was ted cruz. but that wasn't enough to win.
4:06 am
can win in november, marco rubio. it is sort of all over the map. if people just wasn't a change agent it would be donald trump, margaret. >> donald trump started his political career in 1987 taking a full page ad saying ronald reagan wasn't strong enough. donald trump is philosophically all over the place. it doesn't matter to his supporters. he's embodying this economic populus message resonating with a large part of the electorate is and the economy that has been left behind over time. that coupled with the fact there is an anti establishment feeling that frankly suspect new to the gop. it's been around since the tea party movement. it kicked eric cantor out of office and many incumbents out a that have been in office for years and years. there is a desire for a strong
4:07 am
man. what you have seen, every administration ushers in an answer perceived as weakness of a previous president. this is where you get the emergence of a strong man. you have this anti washington sentiment that is all created a moment that has been tailor made for donald trump who has been running for president frankly the last 20 years. this just happens to be the best vacuum for him to step in. and it is articulating the concerns of many americans. >> it is important to acknowledge this is the fault of the republican party too. >> right. >> 53% of people feel betrayed by the republican party. it has trying to tell us we need to believe and feel a certain way and a president who eloquently says things off the
4:08 am
tell prompter. people love that. the things he says at the kitchen table are the things he says on the campaign trail. people love it. he will be our next president because of it. >> let's talk about the math for a second. donald trump is far and away the front-runner. south carolina, he gets 32.5%. if you add up everyone else, they can beat him. is that the math that gives you consolation as someone not a trump supporter? >> no. very little has given me consolation right now. if you have jeb bush, kasich, rubio altogether, they wouldn't beat donald trump. kaley is right in the accepts that the republican party has created this problem. the rules were written to fix the problem from the last time around. mitt romney didn't get his delegates, whatever the threshold was, until june. he was a weakened primary
4:09 am
candidate. he was out of money. rnc wrote the rules to avoid that situation so the clear front-runner would lock it up. that's how this has happened. the tkpaos is very likely to be cooked by march, april, because they have so much momentum and inertia. it has created the problem of trump and allowed him to lock in support early that will constitute the 1237 delegates he needs. the only hope is there will be a whittling quickly and somebody can block him from getting throerb hold votes and move into a contested convention. >> you heard him say he is the candidate who can beat trump. is that the candidate that you as a trump supporter fear the most? >> i think so. this is an outsider's election.
4:10 am
polls show that. people want someone outside of politics. that's donald trump. outside of ben carson, who is fading quickly, is ted cruz. yes, he's been in washington. he steady up to mitch mcconnell and called him a liar. i don't think ted cruz will be the nominee. i think momentum is behind trump. i think he will do well on super tuesday. marco rubio brings back the same establishment frustration feelings that are really under girding the trump movement. >> kaley, margaret, thanks so much for helping us break it all down. pleasure to see you guys. all day tomorrow for coverage of the republican nevada caucuses. and thursday night as the remaining five republican candidates square off before super tuesday. wolf blitzer thursday night, 8:30 p.m. eastern only here on
4:11 am
cnn. michaela. meanwhile, the democratic race is heating up. bernie sanders is and hillary clinton shift to south carolina. a brand-new cnn poll of polls shows clinton has a commanding lead five days to the primary. with her big win in nevada, what can bernie sanders do to rebound? jeff zeleny is in charleston, south carolina with more. jeff. >> reporter: hey, good morning, michaela. no doubt hillary clinton is coming back to south carolina with a big set of energy and a headwinds here -- or tailwinds pushing towards south carolina. she has a commanding lead. she is not going to let the time expire without pushing forward. she will be campaigning with five mothers whose children have been the victims of gun violence. she tries to keep defining bernie sanders. we saw bernie sanders yesterday. he's not giving up. he was in greenville, south
4:12 am
carolina with a message for the voters. >> south carolina has the opportunity to make american history. and i hope you will. this campaign has taken on the economic establishment, all the big money interest. and let me tell you, wall street is getting nervous. >> so that economic message is something he is continue to go impress on. it is definitely resonating. will it resonate enough in south carolina. in 2008, 55% were african-american voters. senator sandsers believes he can win over a good share with that economic message. but tomorrow night, chris, at the town hall you're moderating the central question is, will she keep defining him as a single issue candidate. he bristles at that saying i don't know what she is talking about.
4:13 am
it has diminished him a little bit. >> the new nice way of saying is on the democrat side is drawing contrast. that's what we it now. not taking shots anymore. just drawing contrast. jeff, i'll see you soon. let's give you the latest on this deadly shooting spree in kalamazoo, michigan. jason dalton will be arraigned today. he is expected to face six counts of murders. cnn's ryan young is live in kalamazoo. he has the latest for us. what do we now know? >> reporter: chris, a lot of pain in this community. you can see everyone holding hands talking about moving forward. but they also want to know, what's the motive for this crime? ♪ kalamazoo is in mourning looking
4:14 am
for answers. >> this is an opportunity we get to pray for our victims. >> reporter: the suspect, 45 jason dalton, doesn't appear to be connected to any of the victims. >> these were very deliberate killings, intentional, deliberate. and i don't want to say casually done. coldly done is what i want to say. >> reporter: neighbors who know the alleged shooter say they're in shock. >> he seemed so normal. this is so, so strange. >> reporter: dalton worked as an uber driver. a passenger who rode in his car just before the shooting said he was acting strange. >> we were kind of driving through medians, driving through the lawn, speeding along. and finally once he came to a stop, i just out of the car and
4:15 am
ran away. shortly after that, authorities say the nearly seven-hour shooting spree started. 5:42 p.m., a woman is shot several times in a parking lot at an apartment complex. she survived but is in serious condition. 10:08 p.m., richard smith and his 17-year-old son tyler are shot and killed at a car dealership. 10:24 p.m., dalton pulls into this parking lot at a cracker barrel, where he allegedly kills four women in their cars, all over the age of 60. a 14-year-old girl was also shot but survived. finally, after midnight, police locate dalton's car. >> we determined this was indeed our suspect. he was taken into custody. >> reporter: investigators was looking to pick up passengers even after the final shooting. uber said in a statement we are horrified and heartbroken at the senseless violence. we have reached out to police to help out in any way that we can. >> reporter: you want to know exactly what was going on in his
4:16 am
life. they talked about he was a normal guy. someone seen in the neighborhood all the time. no one ever thought something like this could happen in this community. a lot of people asking questions at this point. just about the why. >> ryan, it is so unsatisfying. people always ask why after a tragedy like this. so rarely do we actually get the answer. judge decides if a lawsuit t - brought by the families of sand hook victims can move forward. the case hinges on a federal law that shields the gun industry from liability. 20 people dead after a devastating cyclone in fiji. many left homeless. winds above 180 miles per hour. power, water, telephone lines all knocked out.

many roads left impassable. this is the most powerful storm ever recorded in the southern hemisphere. virginia waited 106 years to visit the white house. she's finally done it for black history month celebrations, delighting everybody, including the president and first lady with her dance moves. behold and enjoy. just keep moving. when virginia was born, taft was in the office. 17 presidents ago. >> you know what i appreciate here, the president, much like many men, fully understands while it is an honor to meet the sitting president, he understands everybody just wants to see his wife. he sort of moves out of the way
4:18 am
and says have at it, michelle. ? she is the better dancer. i love it. she said just keep moving and be joyful. >> 106 years old. at that point to get what you waited your life for. >> we can't complain about your achy pains anymore. fresh off her win, will hillary clinton go into super tuesday? she is trying out a new message. will it work? we will talk with one of advisers. what makes this simple salad the best simple salad ever?

4:21 am
4:22 am
here's the theory of the case for the clinton campaign. we are now on a roll, starting with nevada. now south carolina right in the super taouts. is 245 what it is, or is this a one off and there are still huge problems to come for the former secretary of state. karen finney for political outreach and senior spokesperson for hillary for america. you have a long time, finney.
4:23 am
see if you can live up to it here this morning. >> all right, chris. bring it to me. >> what do you think you have now seen demonstrated in nevada and maybe in is south carolina that shows the way forward is for clinton? >> a couple things. both in nevada and iowa we have shown our ability to do well in caucus states. that was a i case where bernie was going to -- senator sanders was going to have an advantage. i think we have demonstrate thad caucus states. we have a solid organization and game plan. also, if you take a look at what happened in the caucus states in tkphaoupbts of color, hillary did very well. dare i say won those areas. when you look at south carolina and the rest of the states coming up in march, you see diverse populations. and i think you see areas where secretary clinton will do very well. here in south carolina, i have
4:24 am
been here off and on lee weeks. there's a lot of energy and enthusiasm. people are excited. just excited that it's here, that the primary is coming this week. so we are feeling very good how we will do in south carolina. >> there are still big crowds and the energy in nevada's incomes. we see what may be under pinning that excitement. in terms of positions of strength, positions of weakness for secretary clinton. we saw with young voters, under 44%. we saw honest and trustworthy, big lead for sanders. we saw income disparity in favor of sanders. these are core democratic groups. how does secretary clinton make the case to these people? >> well, i think it's pretty clear given her decisive win
4:25 am
there that when it comes to who do you trust to deliver for you and your family, it is clearly when folks are at their caucus sites, they believe that was hillary clinton. here's another thing i want to mention, chris. a couple of things. we saw among african-american voters, building on president obama's legacy was very important. affordable care act very important to folks in south carolina. also the issue of guns earlier you were talking about the lawsuit going on today around the horrible sandy hook shooting. this is a real-time example of why these issues matter so greatly. >> karen, sanders says i'm step for step with clip on guns except for this one time that i want to be considered fair to the industry so they can't get sued in a way no other manufacturer does get sued. other than that, i'm step for step. >> that's not quite true. he voted against the brady bill
4:26 am
five times. hillary clinton worked on behalf of getting the brady bill passed. president obama supports the brady bill. i'm not sure where that stat went. when we talk about the gun manufacturer's liability, that was a priority of the nra. senator sanders was not in the right place on that piece of legislation. now he has sort is of started to change his mind. he still doesn't think that vote was a mistake. i raise that issue with you because here in south carolina, particularly in communities of color, when you have gun violence being the leading cause of death it significant issue. i spent yesterday afternoon with some of the young mothers who have been lost to gun violence or policing issue. it is hard to hear about them losing to gun violence.
4:27 am
the other piece that is very critical is that folks also see a consistency in hillary's record when it comes to the issues she's worked on throughout her life like juvenile -- getting young people who are incarcerated with adults, getting them out. that was a case she worked on in south carolina. she has a plan for criminal justice reform and a plan for how do we invest in communities of color and how do we make key issues. it is going to matter in south carolina and these march dates. >> secretary clinton recently showed goodin troe inspection for a politician when she said i think for some people there is an underlying question of whether or not i'm in it for me or am i in it for them.
4:28 am
i thought about that when the new ad with bill clinton came out. former president clinton saying what can i do? what can hillary clinton do to make people believe she is in it for them? she can be trusted? kris, this goes back to something you and i have talked about before. she is one of the most well-known unknown people. we have to make sure people really know who hillary clinton is. that's why we talk about her record. i think words, deeds not words. if you look at what she has done in her life, the way she has spent her time, the fact that she graduated from high school and could have gone to a big law firm, she wanted to work on
4:29 am
behalf of kids. she opened a legal aid clinic. helping parents be better first teachers to their children. giving extra needed help. trying to get universal health care. the work she did in the senate around environmental justice and around protecting one of the most comprehensive pieces of legislation around voting rights and ending rarely profiling. and looking at the work she did as secretary of state. i think very consistently if you look at the way this person has spent their life in service in trying to, as the president said, make things a little better. do the right thick. do all the good you can. that be steeped in her faith. i have the benefit of having known her over 20 years. seeing her do the work, helping her to do some of that work, i
4:30 am
know who that person is. that's what we want folks to know who hillary clinton is. >> appreciate you making the case for secretary clinton this morning. >> you got it, chris. >> all right. you will get to hear secretary clinton. ill be long to moderate tomorrow night 8:00 eastern right here on cnn. and we will take "new day" on the road wednesday. and in texas for the big republican debate as well. >> we will speak with the top trump adviser ahead. next day guarantee. it's fast and done right. i'll do that instead. that's not protocol marsha. in by noon, out by 5 the next day. staples. make more happen.

on the heals of a big primary win. moments ago trump tweeted a
4:35 am
number of months ago i was not to win south carolina, ted cruz was. yet i won in a landslide every group and category. win! policy adviser for the trump campaign. hi, sam. >> how are you doing today? >> doing well. donald trump is right. he had a decisive win in south carolina and he is poised to win hugely as he would say in nevada tomorrow. let's pull up the latest. this is south carolina. he won 32 to his rivals 22. let's look at what happens in nevada. this is the latest poll from last week. it does show he also has a huge lead. 45% to marco rubio's 19%. do you now consider donald trump officially unstoppable? >> well, i think we're cautiously optimistic that we are doing all the right things. i think we're working hard.
4:36 am
we are not taking anything for granted. we to the floor the 1,237th delegate. when that occurs, we will start celebrating the nomination. and we'll go from there. so we have a long way to go. there are considerable issues we have to deal with, of course. and i think there is a lot of dynamics inside the republican party that still have to be settled. we are still a long ways from being finished. and we're not taking anything for granted. >> let's talk about those dynamics, sam. i hear you are taking a measured approach. some in the gop establishment, however, appear to be in panic mode. some have said they are freaking out. do you see evidence of that? >> i do, indeed. it's funny you bring that up. yeah, i think so. there are a lot of people who really are seeing a tech tonic plate shift in the republican party.
4:37 am
i think we are going to see -- i think this is really what's interesting, alisyn, is the dynamic that occurred with the conservatism and the populist message that mr. trump has and that's resonating with the american people in a way that we haven't seen in my lifetime. i've told you many times i've been following politics a long time. i have never seen anything like it. i think what has happened is a lot of the establishment people on both sides of the aisle are very disturbed by this. >> how do you see that? >> they don't have an answer. >> how do you see them freaking out? >> well, i think what i see is probably the scramble to get money behind a particular candidate, to see them shifting. and i think money is a real thing to watch. as you always know, it is tracking -- follow the money, and you will follow what's going on in politics. and i think that's what we're
4:38 am
going to see is a shift in money from one candidate to another. the other is the amount of pac money that's going to be mounting. we'll see those in attack ads. i think you will see a lot more scrutiny -- i shouldn't say scrutiny as much as pointed attacks of mr. trump. unfortunately i think it's going to get personal. and i think that's unfortunate for the discourse. >> let's talk about donald trump's strategy moving forward. donald trump retweeted to a conservative website claiming not only is ted cruz ineligible but so too is marco rubio because his father was born in cuba and. both are ineligible to be potus. it's a slam dunk case. check it. there is a link to the conservative website. is that trump's strategy to now
4:39 am
go after rubio's eligibility? >> i think really what it is is it just raises the issue of doubt. i mean, if this is not necessarily subtle law. we saw what happened when he raised the issue with ted cruz. i think these are things that should be settled if we have nominees. you have to know other people will be bringing these up. and it will raise that doubt over the campaign. so i think this is one of the things, raise it now. this is really in the party interest. it's not necessarily anything personal. but to say let's get it settled so we can move on. >> does this suggest that donald trump sees marco rubio as his kphroesest competitor. it seems he focuses on whoever he is closest to. >> i think what with we see is
4:40 am
what everybody sees. i don't know even the most casual observer will notice that marco rubio has taken over establishment lane. there's nobody left. if you want to look at it that way. the squeeze has been put on senator cruz. that's where the squeeze has come. cruz has to figure out a way to deal with marco rubio as well. we're starting to see people settle into their lanes. it is like watching the daytona 500 yesterday. three or four cars from the pack and away they went. even though it was one of the most exciting finishes i have seen -- >> you're not predicting hair-raising finish for nevada? >> no. i think it is settled long before cleveland. >> sam clovis, great to see you on "new day". >> as always, alisyn. thanks. >> over to chris.
4:41 am
all right. a very big crime story we're following. known by many as a family man with no criminal past. so what happened here? seemingly random attack. we'll talk with the county prosecutor next. seven. i just wish one of those people could have been mrs. johnson.

during the commission of a felony. murder charges carry life in prison without the possibility of parole. the others life sentence with parole. >> we are learning police say he acted alone. it is not believed this was an act of terror. of course the motive is unclear. we are getting some accounts. our affiliate was able to speak to the last passenger. apparently a mile before the destination, the driver got a phone call, became erratic, driving over the median, the lawns. when coming to a stop, the passenger was able to flee. is there any indication that that phone call was a catalyst to all of this. are you looking at the phone?
4:47 am
are investigators scrubbing those phone records? >> one of the pieces of evidence that was seized from the suspect was his phone. that phone is being gone through by the kalamazoo department of public safety crime lab. i don't know what they have found or not found. the motive remains clear. that's always difficult to try and find out when you are dealing with these random acts of violence. they occur sudden isly, unprovoked. they are not targeted offenses. there isn't a connection between any of the three victim groups, with each other. the defendant. it just is -- well, it was random, unprovoked violence. >> we also know and really fully understand that is early in the investigation. we are getting sort of
4:48 am
conflicting reports of whether this suspect was known to police. we're hearing that some people, neighbors say, he used guns in a little bit of an odd fashion, shooting guns into the air in the neighborhood, displaying some paranoia. we know he loved ones. others say this guy was a family man. what can you tell us that you know unequivocably now? >> they are true. he was a family man. he is married and has children. as soon as we identified the suspect we also are able to put together his affiliation with weapons. that was already known. on the other hand, he didn't have any prior criminal history. there wasn't anything that would put him in the police's radar as someone who would be likely to do something like this.
4:49 am
there was evidence seized during is the execution of the search warrant of his home related to firearms. some of that evidence may come out later today. certainly it will come out over the course of the proceedings. >> what is particularly chilling to many people who use any sort of delivery service is the fact that this passenger that was in the car when this man started to act erratically said he tried to call 911 to get that driver and the car off the road. it makes one wonder if more could be done. what is your sense of that? >> i do know kalamazoo department of public safety received is a call about the erratic driving. to try and spin that into, well, the police should have done more because that is likely to lead to this random, unprovoked violence i think is a bit of a
4:50 am
stretch. police were aware of it. they did respond to it. more about that 911 call that was made to the police about the erratic driving earlier in the day i think will come out as the investigation unfolds. i have talked to chief hadley lead to suspicion that this would happen. >> we didn't mean to imply that kalamazoo police department didn't act quickly because they did. busy day for you. thanks for joining us on "new day." >> back to politics. bernie sanders looking to rebound in south carolina after his loss in nevada. how will he do with black voters who have long been in the clinton camp? a prominent black sanders supporter joins us next to discuss. ♪

way it should be said, democrats need black voters. the african-american community is very important to that party. you could argue they are very important, period. that is a discussion for a different day. what do we see in the voting block support? they came out big in nevada for hillary clinton. she is presumed to have an in with african-american voters in a way that the vermont senator, bernie sanders does not. is that true? how can it be turned around?
4:55 am
let's discuss with someone who knows the issues better than i ever will, professor emeritous princeton professor cornell west. let's look at the field and you make the case. the presumption from the clinton campaign is this isn't just about likability, this isn't just familiarity but what has been done. while bernie sanders says the right things, has a lot of years in the senate, he has not done things for the african-american community the way hillary clinton has. fair criticism? >> not at all. bernie sanders one of the two white public officials that supported jesse jackson in the '80s. my dear brother, chris, sister hillary clinton is a millie vanilly of american policy. who supported deregulating banks
4:56 am
and also pulled the rug from under welfare? she talks about her work with the children's defense fund in the '70s. doesn't say a word about being a gold water girl and supporting the candidate who martin luther king says is the most dangerous politician. she shows up and gives wonderful speeches sounding like bernie sanders. bernie sanders on the ground getting the rest. the problem is black voters don't know his history in which they know the symbolic language of hillary clinton. on the ground she is calling super predators, one of the most meaning degrading language of our precious young folk sometimes do the wrong thing. we know they have gangsteres on wall street. she is too tied to wall street.
4:57 am
>> she says on the other side i voted for the brady bill, bernie sanders voted against it many times. he wanted to protect gun manufacturers and hasn't done what i have done. >> why does he have a d minus when it comes to nra? she uses the one element to take it somewhere else. one element in terms of jobs with a living wage, when it comes to education and decent housing and wall street. you and i know she received $151 million -- >> you are saying the money is a problem? >> unless she thinks we were born at night but not last night. we know the influence has been intense why she repealed glass-steagall. these had direct connection with black folk. we have a political class on the clinton band wagon and
4:58 am
aggressigravy train. part of the problem is corporate media hasn't been as fair to bernie as they should. >> nobody has had him on more than "new day" has. >> i'm talking about corporate media as a whole. we know donald trump is frankenstein of corporate media. they cover every twitter and speak. if bernie had that coverage people would know who he is. >> he has his hashtag. look how much he has saved. when it comes to hillary clinton and bernie sanders he hasn't got the exposure to see one fundamental thing, profound integrity, genuine conviction and building on the legacy of martin luther king jr. how many politicians do we know have genuine integrity? you can count them on your hand. hillary clinton is not one of
4:59 am
them. >> you count them on one hand if you have been playing with fireworks. >> your father is one that we can count on one hand. that is rare. >> thank you for being on "new day" to make the case. we are following a lot of news. we have a very big situation in kalamazoo, michigan to look at. we have very big information on election to tell you about. we won with everything, tall people, short people, fat people, skinny people. >> donald sees our campaign as the only that can beat him. >> i want states that republicans don't think of. >> what happens in vegas is not staying in investigavegas splmp don't think we are a single issue country. >> we are talking about dozens of issues. i'm not sure where secretary clinton is coming from. >> we want to make progress in our country. >> this campaign has taken on economic establishment.

let me tell you, wall street is getting nervous. >> the uber driver accused of going on a shooting spree in michigan and picking up fares between killings. >> this guy was not on anybody's radar. >> this is "new day" with chris cuomo, michaela pereira. >> welcome to your "new day." it is monday, february 22. after congering south carolina donald trump is heading to nevada hoping for another win. he has never looked more dominant. now is the time to shine. this is a critical phase of the 2016 race. you have all of them heading into the polls in the next two weeks. 16 big states are going to be up for grabs. cnn's super tuesday a week away. we will be covering it all. republicans head from south carolina to nevada.
5:01 am
>> this is still yours. >> i got the cold chill feeling that i was saying something that was meant for allison. there is nothing worse that can happen on this show. tomorrow night we have a big town hall with hillary and bernie. >> i was going to help you out. >> it was long. i got that feeling. you never get that feeling. it is a horrible feeling. here it comes again. beat me with a shoe. >> republicans are down to the final five candidates. their last show down before super tuesday takes place thursday night. let's begin our coverage in las vegas. how is it going at the craps table? >> reporter: so far so good. i'll tell you, republicans are getting ready for another round in this bruising primary fight with tuesday's caucuses. donald trump trying to submit his lead on top here. ted cruz arguing he is the only
5:02 am
real true conservative and marco rubio saying he is the only candidate who can unite the party and take on the democrats in november. barn storming across november. trump sweeping victory in south carolina over the weekend still sinking in. >> we have to go out and vote. >> reporter: after back-to-back victories with sights set on super tuesday. >> we are just going one after another. are we going to win georgia? >> reporter: the gop front runner was stirring up controversy over the weekend by retweeting this message saying cruz and rubio are ineligible to be pote s. >> i retweet things and we start dialogue. >> i will spend zero time on his interpretation of the
5:03 am
constitution with regards to eligibility. >> reporter: questioning eligibility is a favorite trump attack. texas senator ted cruz is sharpening his counter attack. >> for folks who are concerned that donald trump is not the best candidate to go head to head with hillary clinton in november, it is becoming clearer and clearer that we are the one campaign that can beat donald trump and the one campaign that has beaten donald trump. >> reporter: marco rubio making the case that he is the new face of the conservative movement. >> no one can unite this movement or this party faster than i can. we will unite the republican party and the conservative movement. >> reporter: so one candidate missing in action here in the silver state, jeb bush. he dropped out of the race after a very disappointing fourth place finish in south carolina. and now this field that started as an enormous field last year down to just five candidates. things are starting to get very,
5:04 am
very real here in las vegas. >> the debate, we have days left. let's discuss issues with a man on the inside. cnn political commentator, former reagan white house political director and supports donald trump. good to have you this morning. >> good morning. how are we? >> what is up with the retweets? why would he retweet somebody, donald trump, asking a question as whether or not marco rubio is eligible to be president? >> i have to say i am baffled at the notion of all of the attention retweets get. this is like showing somebody in old days of ancient showing somebody a newspaper article. i just don't get the significance of it. so he sends a re-tweet that somebody else wrote so what. whatever it is just a retweet. we should all relax.
5:05 am
>> everybody writes retweets do not equal endorsements. you are still giving an audience to something and there is this illusion that you don't own it. when you put out the message about white supremacist and some fool saying rubio is not eligible you are echoing it. >> no, no, no. donald trump is not a white supremacist. he rejected their support. that is just silly. particularly when we are dealing with the democratic party on record over century supporting slavery, hello, this is not a problem. >> here is my point. they will all be his problem. if he wants to be the nominee and gets him to the next round, the big race, these are all his problems. he has to speak all people.
5:06 am
wouldn't you think this is a good time to shake away from these tactics? >> all you have to do is look at the exit polls in new hampshire, for example. he carried just about every category across the board. he is speaking to all people. he is very interesting in south carolina for all criticism that his opponents levelled at him for being anti-veteran he carried the military for south carolina. he gets in a skirmish with the pope and carries catholic areas of south carolina. i think he is doing pretty well. >> you think going after the pope was a good thing to do? >> you know, i honestly listened to bill donahue, i think that was a misunderstanding. i think the pope was led into saying something. i think this was presented to donald trump right before he stepped on stage and i think he backed away from it.
5:07 am
i think that was overblown and not what it seemed to be at the time. >> what do you make of this case that here is what is going to happen ha happen -- cruz is going to drop, kasich is going to drop and carson will drop and then rubio has more than enough to beat trump. do you see that happening? >> i don't. i think if ted cruz drops a lot of people will go to donald trump. i never bought into the establishment theory that if these people coalesce they have an anti-trump candidate who will carry the day. i think some of the voters would go to donald trump. >> do you see any good reason that members of the gop who fall into that moderate higher educated group of voters don't like donald trump? do you think there is constructive criticism. >> i notice again in new hampshire exit polls he carried
5:08 am
people who said they were self-described moderate republicans. >> as much as you move up in education let alone income. education he gets weaker and weaker. what does that mean to you? >> there is room to grow and i think they will. in all of these presidential elections you get through these primaries where there are multiples of candidates. by the time the choice becomes hillary clinton and donald trump these people will move. i don't have any question about that. >> why? >> why? because i think they are tired of the obama years. they want change. absolutely. hillary clinton is not it. >> when you talk about some of his signature issues there is a complete inverse evaluation from fr them from current block of supporters to the ones he is trying to get. people reject the idea of casting out muslims, of building the wall and some other harsh
5:09 am
rhetoric resonating right now. how do you switch? >> you don't want a continuation of the obama years. that's the deal here. they want change. they want change. and so none of these candidates in any election year are quote/unquote perfect. ronald reagan was not perfect. there were plenty of moderate republicans rejected to ronald reagan. when it came down to a choice they went with ronald reagan. >> why don't you identify the signature trait of ronald reagan that created so-called reagan democrats which was his unfailing optimism, the idea that he projected a sweet strength that saw an inclusiveness to what america is about? that is not what we are hearing from trump. >> having been there ronald reagan was attacked as
5:10 am
extremist, as somebody who was too harsh. he was dangerous, a cowboy. we are looking back now through the sort of rose colored glasses at how ronald reagan is perceived today. in the day all kinds of terrible things, assessments of his character, et cetera were said repeatedly. that is what is happening here with donald trump. by the way, i would point out that they both have the same slogan, make america great again. that is pretty upbeat and optimistic. >> appreciate the perspective as always. >> yes, sir. you are going to want to stay with cnn all day tomorrow. the nevada republican caucus is going to be something to watch. we will cover it all day the way only we can. thursday night you have the remaining five republican candidates square off in the final debate before super tuesday. huge stakes there. wolf blitzer driving that train. that is thursday night 8:30 eastern only on cnn.
5:11 am
the democratic race is no less intriguing as hillary clinton and bernie sanders put their focus on south carolina. a brand new cnn poll of polls shows clinton has a commanding lead. what can bernie sanders do to rebound? our senior washington correspondent is looking at that for us in charleston this morning. >> reporter: south carolina is sort of exhaling from the big republican prime every over the weekend. now for the demz. this is a picture of bernie sanders campaigning in greenville yesterday. he knows south carolina is a key place to start performing slightly better than nevada. the clinton campaign increasing their confidence. they have been shaken a little bit from new hampshire. listen to what hillary clinton said as she was campaigning over the weekend, trying to define her rival. >> i don't think it is right to look a person in the eye who is
5:12 am
hurting and needs help and tell them that if they vote for you you will get $5,000 of health care but only have to pay $500 for it. you shouldn't say that unless you can really deliver it. >> so this is exactly what hillary clinton is going to do going forward. she is going to be a fact checker of bernie sanders' promises. the campaign believes this is a moment to sort of shape reality into promises aren't coming true. bernie sanders has a ton of support particularly from younger voters. south carolina will be an interesting laboratory of that if he is able to reach out to younger african-american voters. in 2008 the african-american vote in south carolina some 55% of democratic primary. that is what bernie sanders is trying to do here as he is trying to rebound. that is why the town hall meeting tomorrow so important. >> that's interesting to hear her become a real life fact
5:13 am
checker. we will talk to david axelrod about that. to the latest in the kalamazoo shooting spree that left six people dead. the suspect jason dalton will be arraigned today. a source close to the investigation saying that the suspect, an uber driver, picked up fares between the killings. cnn's ryan young is live in michigan with the latest. >> reporter: just baffling when you hear about picking up fares. we went to the vigil yesterday, the first time the community able to get together and hold hands and talk out loud about this. a lot of people have lots of questions. ♪ searching for answers >> reporter: kalamazoo is in mourning looking for answers after six people were killed and two others injured in a shooting rampage. >> this is an opportunity we get to pray for victims. >> reporter: authorities say jason dalton doesn't appear to be connected to any of the
5:14 am
victims. >> these were very deliberate killings, intentional, deliberate and i don't want to say casually done, coldly done is what i want to say. >> reporter: neighbors who know the alleged shooter say they are in shock. >> just seemed like a normal guy. this is so strange. we are wondering what might have caused him to do this. >> reporter: dalton worked as an uber driver. >> we were driving through medians, driving through the lawn, speeding along and finally once he came to a stop i jumped out of the car and ran away. >> reporter: shortly after that authorities say the nearly seven hour shooting spree started. 5:42 p.m. a woman shot several times in a parking lot at an apartment complex. 10:08 p.m. richard smith and his 17-year-old son tyler are shot and killed at a car dealership. at 10:24 p.m. dalton pulls into
5:15 am
a parking lot at cracker barrel where he allegedly kills four women in their cars. a 14-year-old girl was shot but survived. finally after midnight police locate dalton's car. >> we determined this was our suspect. he was taken into custody. >> reporter: investigators believe dalton was looking to pick up passengers even after the final shooting. uber said in a statement we are horrified and heart broken at the senseless violence. we reached out to the police to help with their investigation in any way that we can. that first woman who was shot was shot in front of several children and they were scrambling to try to help her. and then the last victim, the 14 year old shot at first they thought she was dead. she is still alive. a lot of people baffled by what is going on here. they want to know more and are hoping today more answers will come out, maybe something about
5:16 am
the motive, something that set him off. >> keep track of the victims who are still struggling especially the young girl and we will fill in information as we get it. today is a sad and important day. the supreme court reconvenes for the first time since justice antonin scalia's death. the eight remaining justices are expected to hear oral arguments. cases ending in a split meaning the circuit court, the high appellate court, their ruling stands. that means it is the rule but only for that circuit. this will continue to happen whenever there is a split until there is a replacement. bill cosby's wife camille is expected to be deposed. the legal team lost a last minute challenge to stop the proceedings. she can claim marital privilege to avoid questions about private conversations but must answer

questions about her husband's alleged sexual assaults. new audio tapes from apollo 10 mission reveal an eerie experience on the dark side of the moon. nearly 50 years after the mission the audio captures when astronauts reported hearing space music. listen. a nasa technician believes the noise came from interference between radios in two separate parts of the spacecraft. >> or something else. >> can we hear it again? i don't hear music. >> that's what we are talking about, the screams from some alien. >> why can't it just be space wind? >> no wind in space.

but we are also hungry for real solutions. we need jobs that pay well and can't be outsourced. we are all in this together. we have to do our part. with your help that is the tomorrow we will build for our country. >> that was hillary clinton in nevada over the weekend. listen closely and you will hear a shift in hillary's tone and message. for starters she is using words like we and us more than i. our next guest says this is significant. let's see if he thinks it is a good move. david axelrod former senior adviser to the obama administration. hi, david. >> how are you doing? >> doing well. what are you hearing differently in the past week? >> my goodness, listen to the speech after new hampshire. that was ant good night for her and the speech after nevada. the whole run up to new hampshire in that speech was
5:23 am
about her and her biography and the obligation of young women to support her. it was basically a message that was rooted in entitlement and about her own advancement. this whole speech, this tone was completely different. it was about we. it was about what we can do together to help this country move forward, to enrich the lives of people. it was a seat change. i think much more effective. this tone, this approach is much more effective than the one we saw leading up to the new hampshire primary. >> explain why in the context of what clinton herself identified recently which is to answer this question of whether or not she is in it for her or for us. that is what clinton said she believes is a question in many voters minds. how does this help answer that? >> it is a complete reaction to
5:24 am
that question because the problem she has been having is people don't have a stake, they don't feel a stake in her campaign. they don't feel the cause behind her campaign. that is not true for bernie sanders. bernie has been clear about what he is fighting for. he talks about these issues of income inequality and you see it showing up in the polls. every time in the three contests that we have had each time bernie sanders wins overwhelmingly among people who say the most important quality they want in a candidate is that they care about people like me. that is a warning sign for hillary clinton. that is something she needs to work on. clearly the new approach she is taking is a reaction to that. she wants people to understand that her advancement is important to them in their own lives and she is fighting for them and not just herself. >> it is not only hillary clinton using different terms and pronouns, it is also bill clinton. he is describes his wife in a
5:25 am
different way than we have heard before. here is a new ad that just went up on youtube this morning. listen to bill clinton. >> she said when i heard about it i was sick. i contacted the mayor and says what do you want me to do? her immediate instinct is what can i do to make it better. she said i want hillary to go on national television and don't do an interview about politics or anything else. she did. they got the money. >> she is the what can i do candidate? she is a walking change maker. you hire a president to make something happen for you. >> she is a walking change maker. she is the what can i do candidate. what do you think of that message? >> i think it is a good message. you know, bill clinton i have said before is an incomparable political genius on behalf of
5:26 am
almost every candidate but his wife where he gets emotionally invested. he has had harsh words for bernie sanders. they should set all of that aside and concentrate on this message. what is it in for people? what are they fighting for that will make a difference for people. what about her will make a difference for people? i think this has the value of being a genuine message. hillary clinton is someone who plunges into problems and kind of works her way through it. she is not a very poetic campaigner. she is not this great inspiring figure but is a problem solver and works on problems that people care about. this is a good message for them and he is much better delivering that message than harsh attacks on senator sanders. >> what took them so long? if she is a problem solver what took so long to facet on this message? >> what are people supposed to facet on?
5:27 am
>> what took her campaign so long? >> i think that is a very good question. sometimes you need to see your life flash before your eyes in order to arrive at the right message. i saw in 2008 that hillary clinton became a much improved candidate after she lost the iowa caucuses. and then she became much more connected with people. we have seen sort of a replay of this where you are to get knocked around a little to get off of your pedestal and deliver a truer and more connecting message. i think we saw that leading into nevada where she was in the kitchens at caesar's palace meeting with kitchen workers and where her tone and approach was much different than we had seen before. if she sticks with this, if this is where she landed it this is the message she will deliver she
5:28 am
will have much more success in this campaign. >> you need big brains like ax to help make them. thank you for being with us this morning. it's one thing to make an ad. it's another thing to ask and answer questions from people like us. when you deal with voters that is the highest level of the game where authenticity and everything comes to play. that is why we will bring you another town hall in south carolina with the voters. >> you will be the ring leader. >> i will sit there and listen to these people who are living situations that need to be addressed. let's see how senator sanders and secretary clinton handles it. >> are we picking the suit. >> the same thing i wore last time. >> we need a style consultation. the question that dwoids voters. why are donald trump's message appealing to voters despite the

5:33 am
to see you. why do you think this is the most amazing story? >> i have been stumped by it the whole time. i think most people have. who would have predicted that somebody who has never run for elected office, hasn't spent any time working inside government has taken the republican primary process by storm, leading the race and by some people's estimations could be sweeping next tuesday. >> it's not only that. it's that donald trump is able to say things, controversial things, take positions and make statements that would have ended other people's campaigns. let's take a look at some of the history here and which mess mgs are resonating the most. on the day he announced you remember he made a comment about mexicans. let's remember that. >> they are bringing drugs. they are bringing crime. they are rapists. and some i assume are good people. we are going to do the wall and by the way who is going to pay
5:34 am
for the wall? mexico is going to pay for the wall. >> matt, people thought when he announced that is going to be the end of it, he is obviously just too outrageous. let's look at exit polls. let's start with south carolina. among people, voters who thought illegal immigrants should be deported, donald trump gets the largest share, 47%. cruz 24%, rubio 15%. new hampshire among voters who think illegal immigrants should be deported. trump gets 51%. closest competitor is 19%. >> everything about messaging. he keeps it very simple. he repeats it. he gets criticized for not going deeper and into more policy detail. he gets away with it and is allowed to keep repeating major themes. i thought that announcement at trump tower was a low point. he message is getting across.
5:35 am
>> here is another controversial comment made. it was about muslims. he suggested that all muslims should be temporarily banned. >> donald j. trump is calling for a total and complete shut down of muslims entering the united states until our country's representatives can figure out what the hell is going on. >> that was another moment you can't say things like that in political life. look at the exit polls that show here for people who believe there should be a temporary ban on muslims, 74% of the south carolinaens gop voters agreed that there should be a ban. new hampshire similar. >> he read his statement on
5:36 am
this. why? because a lot of people are assuming this was a shot at muslims. this was a shot at obama and washington, d.c. congressional republicans. remember the president was saying he would allow these syrian migrants into the country without proper background checks. he is saying we can't let jihadists into the country. it was a clear attack on obama and the republican leadership. that is a key part of trump's presidential strategy. >> donald trump has made personal attacks against institutions and people that the gop thought would sink him and thought were untouchable. we are talking about john mccain's war record, george w. bush going into war. we are talking about the pope. listen to some of them. >> they lie. they said there were weapons of mass destruction. there were none and they knew there were none. the pope said something to the
5:37 am
effect that maybe donald trump isn't christian. he is questioning my faith. a religious leader to question a person's faith is disgraceful. >> we are led by very, very stupid people. >> let's see how that resonated. in south carolina candidates asked voters do you want a candidate who tells it like it is meaning the candor and unvarnished nature. people believe trump is that candidate. 78% over cruz and they like that. >> exactly. so you have moments where the pope comes and spends time with president obama. they are so polite and you know the disagreements are like night and day. you know when people say distinguished colleagues in congress they don't mean it. trump says in front of the camera what the rest say when the camera is turned off. what the voters are saying is this system is brokien in

washington. let's send somebody to change the dynamic. the more he plays into these things the more it is helping. >> thanks for walking us through all of this. great to see you. really hard news coming out of syria. isis striking as other nations scramble to hammer out a truce. any hope that a cease fire is possible? we are live in the middle east next.

there are so many questions. a father of two, no criminal history accused of killing six people, critically injuring two others. joining us is hadly. public safety the police and fire department under one roof you are the chief of it all. give us an idea of what the latest is at this hour, what you
5:51 am
know right now. >> well, what we know right now is that our detectives have worked extremely hard to get this case ready for arraignment whether this morning or this afternoon. the lion's share of the work has been compiling the reports from the initial shootings, victims, information, things of that nature to provide a very comprehensive and thorough report for the kalamazoo county prosecutor so he can get arraigned today. from there we will start fairing out the uber dynamic which has been traveling around this situation for the last 24 hours. and all the other information in terms of what his activities were in the hours and day preceding. >> multi pronged investigation because there were several different shooting sites. you talk about the uber dynamic. i think it is particularly unsettling whenever something like this happens but it is so upsetting for people to learn
5:52 am
this was an uber driver, any driver that takes the public around, i suppose in a way this could help you with your investigation because uber essentially is a gps that tracks the movement of their vehicles, does it not? >> correct. i think as soon as we are able to latch on to the information in terms of his whereabouts in between the first and second shooting and second shooting and third shooting we will certainly understand where he travelled to and maybe lead us to other sources of information. >> the other side of that, of course, is the fallout about the idea that this guy was an uber driver. they do some kind of background check for these drivers, do they not? >> that would be my assumption. in all fairness to uber this guy had no criminal history. he was an average joe. whatever systems or checks they had in place i would imagine he
5:53 am
would have passed them. he was not aware to us in law enforcement. he was not a person of interest to us. i would imagine that he would have passed any screening they had in place. >> not known to law enforcement there but we are hearing "new york times" reporting that some neighbors said that he quote used guns in a troubling manner often sounded paranoid, was known to occasionally shoot guns into the air. what does that say to you as somebody investigating a suspect like this now? >> certainly gives us insight into his behaviors and maybe his state of mind in the most recent months or days leading up to the shootings. so many times there are behaviors that people exhibit and may be an isolated incident that makes you stop and pause but wouldn't lead anyone to believe that somebody would
5:54 am
commit these types of acts. this is very unusual for this to happen. these were unprovoked and unpreventable incidents that happen in our community. our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims' families and friends in this community as a whole. there is a lot we don't know right now and we are actively seeking out answers to some questions and a motive which we don't have. i know that is probably the million dollar question why would this individual do this. >> we search for the answers. the focus has to turn to victims as the victims are laid to rest. the families will need the support. what are you saying to the residents there? when this kind of violence tears apart the fabric of a community like this you need to speak to the residents there who are shaken. >> absolutely. and i said it a couple of weeks ago in a different interview
5:55 am
anything can happen any place anytime. any community is vulnerable, large and small. we have to be vigilant and be aware. i think there is some solace in the regard that our law enforcement was able to put this guy into custody in a very quick fashion. he is no longer a threat to the community. we ask that folks work with their area law enforcement agencies, have partnerships with them, have relationships and let us know when things don't seem quite right. we will try to provide balance to those observations and follow through when we feel those observations need to be followed through on. >> chief hadly, thank you for joining us today. we will be in touch with you as you further the investigation along. short break now. we have your good stuff coming up.
