conference in klum south carolina. we'll keep an eye on the podium but first trump's big win in the west because hey, donald trump hit the jackpot in nevada. in a total blow out he now moves one step closer to the gop nomination. here are the final results from last night's caucuses. trump winning and winning big. picking up as i said his third consecutive win. >> a couple of months ago we weren't expected to win this one. you know that, right? >> we weren't. of course if you listen to the pundits we weren't expected to win too much. and now we're winning, winning, winning the country. and soon the country is going to start winning, winning, winni , winning,. >> senator ted cruz now promising to bounce back after a disappointing finish by setting sights on super tuesday. >> one week from today will be the most important night of this
campaign. one week from today is super tuesday. one week from today, the most delegates that are awarded on a single day will be awarded next tuesday. the role of the first four states is to narrow the field and give super tuesday a clear choice. and now the voters can decide. >> super tuesday. missing from last night's action senator marco rubio who left the silver state early, this morning he's brushing off trump's big win. >> this is a very unusual year and a very unusual process. and the nevada caucuses by the way are atypical. i respect nevada very much but last night that process was just different than the rest of the country. the bottom line fact, the vast and overwhelming majority of republicans do not want donald trump to be our nominee. >> can trump be stopped ahead of super tuesday? let's bring in cnn's sara murray live in las vegas.
>> good morning carol. it is a great question because donald trump just trounced his republican rivals last night. but look at his showing so far. he's proven he can win in new hampshire. he's proven he can win in the south among more conservative republicans in south carolina. and last night he picked up his first western win in one of these tricky caucus states. and of course all of this is happening as his republican rivals are still squabbling amongst each other trying to prove they can be the alternative to donald trump. donald trump emerging victorious for the third contest in a row. >> we love nevada. we love nevada. >> dominating the nevada caucuses and steam rolling his opponents. >> 46% with the hispanics. number one with hispanic. we won with evangelicals, young, old, with highly educated,
poorly educated. i lu the poorly educate t. >> for both senators marco rubio and ted cruz a disappointing loss. >> i want to congratulate donald trump on a strong evening tonight. >> in his concession speech cruz pointing to his early iowa caucus win and arguing he's the strongest alternative to trump. >> the first four states have shown is that the only campaign that has beaten donald trump and the only campaign that can beat donald trump is this campaign. >> while cruz advisors tell cnn the candidate has reached his boiling point with trump. and to expect a more aggressive cruz in the coming days. meanwhile the pressure is mounting on dr. ben carson and john kasich to drop out after their dismal results. kasich's camp quick to rub salt into the wound. saying senator rubio just endured another disappointing performance despite being the highest zpending candidate in nevada. last night larger voter turnout
caused problems at the polls like ballot shortages and incidents of volunteers checking in caucus goers without verifying id. voters even took to twitter to complain of poll workers openly showing support for trump. nevada gop officials say there have been no open reports of irregularities or violations and it is not against the rules for volunteers to wear candidate gear. now carol, we're about to test the conventional wisdom as to whether anyone can be an alternative to trump or ted cruz. that test comes on march 1. for marco rubio like you said we didn't hear from him last nugt by this morning he did a couple of interviews and in one he promised he was going to win florida. we'll see if he is able to pick up a little momentum able to keep him in the race between now and then. >> sarah murray, thank you.
today trump is riding high. after his sweeping victory in nevada here is what he said early in morning. >> we won with every single group. men, women, evangelicals. we won with all sorts of education. if you talk about education at the highest level to the a lower level. we won with that. we won with everything. >> in terms of delegates, trump is beating cruz and rubio's numbers combined. i'm joined by john avenue lion and rich gaylin, welcome both of you. you heard trump. he said he won in all the demos. is it too late to stop him? >> that window is closing. donald trump had a massive win last night across all demographics. beat cruz among evangelicals, and cruz and rubio among latinos and the math in the polls on super tuesday look really tough.
rubio can talk about how a majority want somebody else but a lack of wins and lack of momentum shows donald trump is a phenomena right now that the republican party has created and fasten your seat belts folks because this is going to get even woerder. >> so rich, senator cruz keeps saying he's the only candidate who's won against trump. but in nevada he won by nearly 20 points so does it really matter what he did in iowa? >> you look for sunshine on a cloudy day to quote a song and that is what everybody tries to do. but i think we have to remember that republicans are doing this. republicans are voting for trump. if it was reversed and we had seven guys in washington and new york deciding who the nominee was going to be, everybody would be up in arms that the establishment is trying to change the deal. but everybody -- you know,
it's -- the number of people that participated last night was one tenth of the number that voted in south carolina. but everybody was in that same ballpark. everybody had to deal with the same things. everybody had the same opportunity with hispanics. if trump is on this roll and stays on this roll and by the way real clear politics has him leading in 10 out of 11 states on super tuesday. that will pretty much put the deal to bed i think. >> can't much argue with that. if that holds true. i guess we'll have to see though. of course the elections haven't taken place. >> more than one analyst says senator cruz and rubio should gang up on trump and just go and attack him and attack him. would that work? >> it may be too late for that to work. but early on there seemed to be a decision all of these second tier candidates would attack each other in the belief donald trump would fade out of the weight of his own absurdity.
that hasn't happened and instead they have killed each other one by one and they have let trump in sneak in on a pop list wave. and that failure to really hit trump hard is what hawes enabled his strength. >> here is another strategy people are talking about rich. analysts say john kasich should drop out so that support can consolidate behind marco rubio. but kasich made it clear he's not going anywhere. his campaign says it is jazzed by his 4% showing in nevada. here a bit from a press release they released last night. republicans are left to wonder whether investing in marco rubio is throwing good money after bad. rubio appears likely to pick you have more than seven more delegates than governor kasich in nevada despite the fact that the kasich campaign spent virtually no resources in the
state and they gonna on to say we're patient and it is going to be great but really is it? >> i like john a lot. i've known him since he was a freshman in congress. the problem is he's not in the story other than this type of story. and that is what happened to carly fiorina in between debates. there was anything to keep the thing going. i think what the kasich campaign is looking at, clearly they are looking at march 15th and the week before that in michigan to get into the mid west where he's strongest. and if he can win ohio on the 15th then he pops to the top of the probable vp list. certainly monk the finalists because he can deliver ohio. >> there was a quinnipiac poll show eed trump leading kasich i the state of ohio. >> not by much. >> still he's a popular governor to boot. >> this is why trump is so
tough. >> i got to leave it there. thanks both of you. i want to head back to columbia, south carolina. bernie sanders is holding a news conference. let's listen. >> -- not by the number of millionaires and billionaires it has. you judge a country on how it treats its weakest and most vulnerable and people. 21% of our children are living in poverty in this country. 37% of african american children are living in poverty. 47% of native american children are living in poverty. 1.2 million children in grades k-12 were homeless in 2012 through 2013. children in the united states of america. now once again we don't talk about this much.
media doesn't talk about it much. politicians don't talk about it t much. congress doesn't talk about much. i'm a united states senator. i don't hear the word poverty talked about terribly much at all. so what are we going to do? what are we going to do to address the crisis of poverty? what we're going to do in this country if i have anything to say about it is to say that if somebody works 40 hours a week, that person is not going to live in poverty. today, the minimum wage of $7.25 is nothing less than a starvation wage. we've got to raise that over the period of a few years to 15 bucks an hour. >> we're going to my staff could use your help staying in touch with customers. at&t can help you stay connected.

we want to head back to columbia, south carolina and bernie sanders who's selling his economic plan to help lift working families out of poverty. let's listen. >> andrea, andrea. >> senator, we're only a few days before the primary here. you are leaving for super tuesday. know you are going to be back for the election. there is a feeling among some in south carolina that you are writing off -- >> no, no no no. >> -- [inaudible]. >> let me just say and i say that with these two guys by my side and i thank them so much for their support and i think media does this a whole lot andrea. we came to south carolina. and if you look at the polls we were like 7, 8, 9% in the polls. we were 50, 60, 70 points behind. we have waged a very, very vigorous campaign. we have picked up a lot of support. and we have closed the gap very, very significantly.
but this from day one was going to be a very difficult stay for us. we're not writing off south carolina. you all know that an march 1st, there are a dozen states that are holding elections. and the nature of the world is we got to go out to other states. i think i'm leaving for oklahoma in a little while, where we think we have a shot to win. we have a shot to win in minnesota, massachusetts and colorado. and my own state. we are fighting here in south carolina as hard as we can. but within the context i think secretary clinton was in the california the other day. she's writing off the sate. that is the real world that we are in. and mostly want to stay on poverty today. we got off on this. when i was in iowa some bad poll came out. well in you lose iowa you are going to drop out of the race.
so let me ream my friends in the media, iowa is one state. new hampshire is another state. nevada is another state. great state of south carolina is another state. and do you know what? there are dozens and dozens and dozens of states that follow. in some of those states i expect we are going do very well and win and maybe by large amounts. in some states we're going to lose. we won new hampshirely 20 vo lb votes. not the end of the world for secretary clinton. and this is a race. you have to get 2400 delegates. we are in the race to win it. and i think we are going to pull off one of the great political upsets. yes andrea. >> -- democratic turnout is down. donald trump seems has enormously expanded. >> let me say this -- tell me --
surgeon arou . what we are being compared to is the phenomenon which i have said for a long long time. of barack obama in 2008. barack obama broke the mold. the turnout was beyond belief. the truth is the democratic turnout in iowa was very good. not as good as 2008. compare it i think the second largest turnout in history. turnout in new hampshire was actually very, very very good. not quite where obama was in two thousand -- and remember also when you compare 2008 you have nod only obama and clinton but other candidates. and so if you want to compare that just to 2008 i don't think that is fully fair. go back to 2004 and 2005 0 we're doing pretty well. in nevada did we have the kind of turnout we wanted? absolutely not. >> that's bernie sanders talking about voter turnout which is very important this his mind because the bigger the voter
turnout, the better bernie sanders supposedly does. i want to bring inner errol lou. errol, why is bernie sanders saying turnout is great but not as grate as 2008 because that was historic. why is he making such a big deal of that? >> well it is true for one thing. if you get peppered with questions about gee turnout seems to be down, there is not so much enthusiasm for you, touch recalibrate it and sort of make clear that what happened in 2008 really was unusual on a lot of different levels. it also points down the road to a larger problem for the democrats, which is that you have got this republican romp that is going on. and it is really stirring up record turnouts getting people really energized. a lot of times that can come back to haunt the other party. the democrats by trying to get the nomination into clinton's hands without much fuss or fight or a lot of debates they risk
putting a lot of the electorate to sleep. it is a concern not just for sands but for the democratic party as a whole. >> say we get to the general election and it is between bernie sanders or hillary clinton and of course trump wins the nomination. won't that energize democratic voters to come out just because trump is in the race? >> trump will definitely energize democratic voters. the challenge with trump is going to be where does this broad swath of independent voters go in the general election go? where historically at least for the last two elections they helped carry barack obama into the white house. and i think that, you know, we are going to see barack obama play an important role here in the democratic -- in the general election because there are very few people who can kind of take on donald trump. and i think it is going to be hard -- you know, hillary clinton and bernie sanders don't have sort of magic fairy dust to
diminish trump's supporters. i think barack obama is going to help people go after those. >> i want to dip back into bernie sanders newser here. he was talking about his complete support of president obama and i want to talk about that next. let's listen. >> -- a pilot program where they can track officer-involved death, something that previously only by media outlets like -- [inaudible]. such information remains voluntary. do you think that police departments should be mandated -- >> yes. >> -- when they kill americans -- >> well let's prephrase it. you have made a judgment, they kill. but when individuals die under police apprehension or police custody, should that be mandate? yes i do believe that. >> would you support legislation?
>> yeah. >> senator, in the event that this math does not add up for you -- >> and your concern about poverty in south carolina? is that where you are going? >> i'm going follow one poverty question. well and you can answer this way. what would your priorities be? you are going to have significant delegate support -- >> my priorities are to win the democratic. >> -- at the convention. >> to nominate bernie sanders as president. look, look look. let me rephrase it, again. when we began this campaign essentially it was almost believed that secretary clinton was the inevitable candidate. she is not the inevitable candidate now. i think we've got a real shot to win it. and what i would ask of the media is not to look at it state by state. you know, we're going to win some states. we're going to lose some states. there are -- it is necessary to
get 2400 delegates. we are going to have good days. we're going to have bad days. secretary clinton will have good days and bad days. but let's look at the long-term thing. we have momentum. and if you want -- again i don't want to stress polls too much. i'm not a great believer in them. but short look at the polls and state by state, do you know what you are seeing? the gaps are narrowing. clinton is still in the lead, her lead is narrower. we think we have momentum and momentum is very important. so i think we are on a path towards victory. it is a tough fight. and let me tell you something, if we win this it will probably be the biggest upset in the history of america. gentlemen in the back sir. >> please clinton, secretary clinton was first lady back in 1996. is there substantiation for the notion that she actually rounded up votes. >> yes. >> and second -- >> -- i'm saying she was active on this issue.
she was first lady. >> and the issue of south carolina. just sort of directly. this has come up many times but could you just sort of directly address your view of racism as a by-product of economics? or do you see racism as an issue that is cultural and needs to be dealt with in a cultural way is this. >> let me talk about south carolina and just say one thing. i'm on the committee that wrote the affordable care act. okay? and i can tell you to the best of my memory, there was not any discussion on that committee -- and we had dozens of meetings about states not taking advantage of their ability to expand medicaid that we gave them. and it was shocking to me, not just in south carolina, but other states. how many folks? hundreds of thousands now who could get healthcare who are not getting healthcare in south carolina simply because of ideological reasons. they are black and they are
white. who are not getting healthcare. some of them will certainly die and be much sicker than they would have been. and let me answer your question by saying. i was,dy know i always get nervous because i date myself when saying this. i was there on the march in washington in 1963 with dr. king. and do you remember the full title of that march? it was called the march for jobs and freedom. jobs and freedom. in other words, what dr. king understood is that to be fully human, you have to have a decent income. you have to have employment. not to mention that we have to break down the barriers of racism and bigotry. both. all right. thank you all so much. thank you. >> all right. that was bernie sanders holding a news conference in columbia, south carolina. he wants of course to get as many votes as possible. still to come in the "newsroom," the race is on for the big one.
that would be super tuesday. we'll talk with trump's campaign spokeswoman about his big win last night and a million dollars worth of attack ads set to begin today against donald trump. right when you feel a cold sore, abreva can heal it in as few as two and a half days when used at the first sign. without it the virus spreads from cell to cell. only abreva penetrates deep and starts to work immediately to block the virus and protect healthy cells. you could heal your cold sore, fast, as fast as two and a half days when used at the first sign. learn how abreva starts to work immediately at abreva.com don't tough it out, knock it out, fast. with abreva.

that matters to me. i have three children that are going to grow up here and i want them to be able to enjoy all the things that i was able to enjoy. together, we're building a better california. donald trump is winning and winning and winning. wrapping up his third straight victory in nevada and looking ahead to super tuesday. >> we've had great numbers coming out of texas. amazing numbers coming out of tennessee and georgia. and arkansas. and then in a couple of weeks later florida. we love florida. we are going to do very well in ohio. we're beating the governor. it is good. that is always nice to be beating the governor. >> okay. so let's talk about mr. trump
and his campaign. and where it is going now. i'm joined by his national spokesperson katrina pearson. welcome. >> hi carol. >> i noticed that mr. trump mentioned texas first which of course is ted cruz's home state. does donald trump expect to win over ted cruz? >> well, you know, i think it is very likely that mr. trump can win here in texas. mr. trump's chief policy is illegal immigration and border security and that is very important to the hearts and minds of texas for sure. >> ted cruz, recently adopted many of donald trump's policies seemingly. he's for the wall. and he now wants to deport all 12 million undocumented immigrants in the united states. your thoughts. >> well senator cruz knows what's important to the people of texas and, you know, he's right. and he was wise to adopt some of those policies because it is a very real issue, carol. we can't even have an honest
discussion with regards to the jobs, economy, debt, economy, without stopping illegal immigration and getting it under control. so that is the issue, particularly in texas. >> back in january, donald trump told cbs he would be a much different person if he became president. but this week he called ted cruz a weak little baby to which ted cruz responded on twitter with a clip from austin powers. >> wait a minute, he kind of looks like a baby. come here, i'm gonna eat you. i'm bigger than you. i'm higher on the food chain. get in my belly. >> so ted cruz says he's going to go on the attack against donald trump even more. so can we just expect such language from both candidates going forward in the short-term? >> well, you know, i suspect so. and it hasn't really worked for senator cruz thus far. in south carolina a state he was
supposed to win and he didn't win a single county. coming out of nevada with mr. trump winning overwhelmingly across the board once again. going into his home state of texas senator cruz is going to have to do something. however if he had just focus on what he wants for america he might be better off. >> mr. trump beat ted cruz handily in nevada. so why does mr. trump have to resort to name calling anymore? can't he just fly above it? >> mr. trump has always said he's going to focus on his platform which is making america great again and if he's attacked he will respond in kind. one of the reasons he kept going after jeb bush. mr. trump is always going to respond when someone is attacking him, particularly when they are spending millions of dollars and attack ads against him to besmirch his character.
>> in oklahoma and arkansas a major ad buy today and what is mr. trump's response to that million dollar ad buy. >> a million dollars they asked mr. trump for to begin with and we saw this earlier on in iowa. it is going to be more of the same carol. and we have to realize here mr. trump has something that no other candidate has. whether it is the excitement, enthusiasm, even the inspiration. other candidates trying to tear him down calling themselves the alternative? why would you want to be the alternative to the most popular candidate t candidate inspiring people and drawing masses of crowds from people that would have never been paying attention to this election to begin with? >> i have too leave it there. thanks for joining me. still to come in the "newsroom," a conservative group is going after donald trump. we just talked about that. we'll hear from the group itself
next. wledgeable, professional. i'm actually a dj. [ dance music plays ] woman: [laughs] no way! that really is you? if they're not a cfp pro, you just don't know. cfp -- work with the highest standard. we wonerere. and here. and here. here. and here. uh, here. also in here. back there. behind here. even next to these guys, here. in the nation's largest, independent study, rootmetrics just named verizon number one network for the fifth time in a row, here. so when the other guys claim they're the best, remember: there's only one, number one. and now we'll pay up to $650 to switch to the best network. this one right here.

new hampshire, south carolina, nevada, donald trump is winning contest after contest. so now at least one conservative political action committee says it is time to end donald trump's race to the white house. buying one million dollars worth of ad time, bashing the republican front runner in oklahoma and in arkansas. >> which presidential candidate supports higher taxes, national healthcare and
the wall street bail out? it's donald trump. >> in many casis probably identify more as a democrat. >> trump wantsds us to think he's mr. tell it like it is. but he has a record and he's very liberal. he's really just playing us fur chumps. >> i'm joined by david mcintosh, the president of the club for growth, the political arm that is purchasing these ads. welcome sir. >> thank you carol. >> thanks for being here. i appreciate it. why do you think these ads will
work? and i ask you that because the national review which is an establishment magazine ripped trump apart. marco rubio has the backing of 57 lawmakers and governors. trump has zero by the way and dozens of attack ads in nevada and trump still won big time. so again, why do you think these ads will work? >> we tested these in iowa last fall in real time playing for tv ads and they did work. they took trump out of first place in the second place. what they do is tell the truth about donald trump. that his vision for america will bankrupt us, essentially. welcome at atlantic city. that is where trump had the biggest impact. he went bankrupt, he survived but everybody else was left holding the bag, losing their jobs and homes. and we're going to continue to tell the truth about that because the stakes are so high. if donald trump is the nominee, the polls show it is the one republican that almost guarantees hillary clinton will win the race in the fall. will lose the senate.
and now with justice scalia's passing will lose the supreme court. so the ball game -- there are a lot of stakes here in the next three weeks. >> as you know donald trump does not like to be attacked and he does fight back. in fact last year he threatened to sue club for growth over this particular ad in iowa when it ran in iowa. did the lawsuit ever get filed. >> no he sent us a nasty letter but never filed a lawsuit. in a large part what we do is put donald trump in his own words. the ad was accurate. the stations knew that. i think what he does is attack anybody who he thinks is attacking him. what we're going to show the volters is the real donald trump is not the way you change washington. in fact it will make matters worse here. >> i'm just curious because you have put out ads before. are you more careful because donald trump threatened to sue? >> we always try to be very accurate in what we're doing. but yes we're very careful to be
sure we've got him on the record with what we're saying. and essentially that is our mission. show the voters the real donald trump. he won't make america great. it will be just what he did to atlantic city where heented up filing if are bankruptcy and he is playing us for chumps. he's the worst kind of politician who will say anything and do anything to get somebody's vote and then turn around and do the opposite. >> you heard katrina pearson t trump spokeswoman. she said that the club for growth came to donald trump and asked him for a million dollars. is that true? >> it actually went the other way around. he invited us to come up and said i can give you a million dollars for your senate races. i said donald we still disagree with you but if you want to give us a million dollars, i'll take the money. i think it was his effort to buy our silence. and we deputy take it. we're going to keep telling the truth to the voters. >> so he's lying when he said that you came to him? >> exactly. he invited me up to his office.
it was an imposing office at trump towers but i just said there and said we disagree with you on raising taxes on trade. if you want to send us money i never say no to that but we're going to keep telling the truth about you. >> david mcintosh, thanks for being with me this morning. coming up in the "newsroom," president obama hints about who his supreme court nominee could be next. , so you don't have to stop. tylenol® 8hr arthritis pain has two layers of pain relief. the first is fast. the second lasts all day. we give you your day back. what you do with it is up to you. tylenol®. you can't breathed. through your nose. suddenly, you're a mouthbreather. well, just put on a breathe right strip which instantly opens your nose up to 38% more than cold medicine alone. shut your mouth and say goodnight mouthbreathers. breathe right

all precincts have now reported from last night's caucuses. donald trump is the winner. and marco rubio comes in second with 23.9% of the vote and ted cruz with 21.4% in third. that's with 100% of all the caucuses reporting. so just thought i'd pass that along because the second place finisher was hanging up there in the air and now we know it is senator marco rubio. president obama is dropping hints about a possible supreme court nominee. >> reporter: it's a way for the president to keep the pressure on senate republicans and continue to state that he's going to name a nominee no matter what they say. we're facing a senate republicans who are making unprecedented moves. saying they're not going to hold any hearings on any nominee.
that's unprecedented. we heard from the chair of that committee who hasn't even responded to an invitation to the white house to sit down with the president and talk about this and senate majority leader saying he probably won't meet with any nominee. that's the context as he spells out some of thing thes he'd like to see in a nominee. somebody like someone who is imminently qualified, someone who has a a mamastery of the lad someone who recognizes the limits of the judic yare's rule and that their job is to uphold the law and not make law. this is a way for the president to continue to spell out that he plans to name a nominee.
he wants to see the senate fulfill their nomination and we've seen two recent polls, both show a majority of americans, pretty high majority, 63 sk 62% want to see them take steps to fill this vacancy. >> thank you. still to come in the newsroom, investigators baffled as they try to find a moiv motir the kalamazoo shooting spree. >> i'm sure an investigation will disclose elements of his personal life in hopes of coming up with a reason it hap pd. attacks three strong litter box odors, plus locks clumps tight. ... and now it's light. every home, every cat. there's a tidy cats for that. something we'll show you.. through small things. big things.
that the suspect had a degree in law enforcement. that's him inside a gun shop. the shop's owner said he saw no red flags. >> he was a law abiding citizen up until the time he pulled the trigger on his first victim. no indication at all. there's just some people that will never give you an indication that they're about to do something horrible. >> nick valencia is in kalamazoo with more for us. >> reporter: i spoke to the police chief here who tells me that the kalamazoo shooting suspect legally purchased and licensed the firearm he used in his ram page but he did not have a concealed carry permit. the gun store owner says he did
not buy the gun or ammunition there but did buy the conseal and carry jacket. it was about three hours later he was spotted and he would eventually unload 16 rounds into his first victim. i spoke to a neighbor who called her a hero and said the gunman appeared to be aiming for children. >> i don't know if it was her mother instinct. she just knew something was wrong, told them to run. >> reporter: so she was a hero in all of this? >> could have been the kids and i really think that if any kids were out there, she would have done it for anyone's kids. >> reporter: police tell me the suspect changed cars after that first shooting. he would go on allegedly kill six people, injuring eight all together. he was, according to police
chief, not on any medications. he believes this suspect one day snapped. the reason he did so? that question is left unanswered. >> thank you. the next hour, "cnn newsroom" starts right now. ♪ happening now in the newsroom, donald trump leaves las vegas a winner. >> now we're going to get greedy for the united states. >> the billionaire dominating by double digits in nevada. >> we won the evangelicals. number one with hispanics. >> reporter: three straight wins and a lot of momentum heading into tomorrow's debate. on the day that obama was inaugurated, republicans came together and said what can we do and they decided we're going to
ubstruct, ubstruct, ubstruct. >> we have serious challenges and i think it's important for people and particularly white people to be honest about those. >> next, south carolina, then super tuesday. can sanders stay in the hunt? let's talk live in the cnn newsroom. ♪ and good morning, i'm carol costello. this mornling, donald trump is one step closer towards the gop nomination. after a sweeping victory in nevada. here are the final results. trump winning and winning big. picking up his third straight state. >> a couple of months ago we weren't expected to win this one. you know that, right? we weren't. of course, if you listen on the pundits we weren't expected to win too much and now we're winning, winning, winning the country and soon the country is going to start winning, winning, winning. >> senator ted cruz now trying to bounce back after a
disappointing third place finish by setting his sites on super tuesday. >> one week from today we'll be the most important night of this campaign. one week from today is super tuesday. one week from today the most delegates that are awarded on a single day will be awarded next tuesday. the role of the first four states is to narrow the field and give super tuesday a clear choice. and now the voters can decide. >> on super tuesday. missing from last night's action, second place finisher, marco rubio, who left nevada earlier. he's brushing off trump's big win. >> this is a very unusual year and unusual process and the nevada caucuses are a-typical. i respect nevada very much but last night that process was different than the rest of the country.
the vast of republicans don't want donald trump to be our nominee. >> question now, can anything stop trump? and let's head to vegas and sarah marie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. that's a great question. it was a blowout for donald trump last night. but you have to look at this string of victories. new hampshire, he proved he would win with sentiere ieierrc. and last night he proved he would win in a western state and now it's up to his republican rivals to prove that there is still a rationale for a alternative to donald trump. ted cruz needs to win texas but the path is a little trickier for marco rubio. take a listen. >> we'll win in florida. now that governor bush is no longer in the race, a lot of him and i split up a lot of the
support in florida. and we feel great about almost every state that's on the map. >> so, you heard him there saying that he will win florida. the problem is that's not a state that votes until march 13th. that's a long time from now. so, if he wants to pose a serious challenge to donald trump, he's going to need to start picking up delegates as soon as we get to these march one contests. we'll have to see if anyone is able to stop donald trump's momentum. >> reporting live from las vegas. thank you. despite a wave of support from the gop establishment, senator marco rubio got beat by more than 20 points. and during an interview on the sh "today" show. >> i'm going to tell people who i am and why i'm running and if they elect me, they're going to have someone that unifies this party, governors this country
responsibly and i will be a president for all americans, even the people that don't agree with us. >> with me now, jason roe, a senior advisor to marco rubio. >> good morning. >> i think a lot of voters admire marco rubio for staying positive but still many wonder who why he's not to going after mr. trump more aggressively? >> i'd started from the position of anybody that's watched senator rubio in the u.s. senate and a candidate, it would be completely out of character for him to all of a sudden start attacking another candidate to propel himself and how has that worked for the other candidates? jeb bush was the first and largely only to directly go after donald trump and he's no longer in the race. i appreciate all the advice i've been watching in the news media
the last two days about why we should get in a fight with on the donald trump. > > mr. trump said if mr. rubio goes after me, then i'm going to go after him hard and that means marco rubio is afraid to attack donald trump. in their eyes. >> i'm sure there's all kinds of baiting and goating going on, just watching the morning shows, i'm watching media trying to goat us into this fight. donald trump is offering his vision for america, marco rubio is offering his vision for america and last night was a great night for marco rubio. this is the second race in a row in which he's demonstrated that he is the alternative to donald trump. you've got in john kasich and ben carson, two that are ends at
this point. and he's getting bronze medals. he's trending up and cruz is trending down and i think the non-donald trump voters, you will start to see a very competitive two-personultimatel is going to be the nominee this fall. >> kasich's people sent out a biting press release. republicans are now left wondering if investing in marco rubio is investing in bad. he's likely to pick up only seven more delegates than the kasich campaign, despite the fact that cathe kasich campaign spent no resources. >> well, he spent no resources
and got 5% of the vote. next tuesday there will be three primaries going on and john kasich has now staked his claim on winning in michigan on march 8th. so, there will be another 16 states that have already held elections that john kasich has done moderately good in one of these. i don't know why he stays in the race other than making a point. i think anybody who invested in john kasich is investing in enron after his collapse. and when you look at some of the indorsements, former members of congress that are supporting marco rubio. so, i don't see where there's any support for john kasich to stay in the race. >> in the days leading up to the nevada caucuses, senator rubio received a wave of indorsements from establishment republicans.
he's got indorsements from mayors and law makers. but trump is still managing to beat him and donald trump has zero indorsements from any establishment candidate. do those indorsements really matter? >> you know, no one votes based on indorsements. this is an unusual election. donald trump is an unorthodox, different kind of candidate and he's channelling a lot of frustration with the lack of progress in washington and addressing the debt with dealing with the immigration crisis. wre we've got a lot of things that donald trump is speaking to and he's not really offering solutions whereas marco is really offering solutions. marco has run a positive campaign. donald trump has not necessarily run what we would call a traditionally positive campaign. and it's a frustration that
marco rubio feels. he was kind of part of the original wave of frustrated conservatives when he ran against the establishment in florida for u.s. senate in 2010. he was one of the original tea party leaders and he's got a 98% conservative voting record in the senate. so, he's the tip of the spear to get change in washington, rather than on the stump just offering one liners. >> i have to leave it there. thanks for stopping by. >> thanks, carol. >> you're welcome. tomorrow night in houston, the remaining presidential candidates will meet before super tuesday. wolf blitzer will be the moderator at 8:30 p.m. eastern time.

bernie sanders says his campaign is actually gaining steam and he urged pundits to look ahead. >> what i would ask of the media is not to look at it state by state. you know. we're going to win some states, lose some states. there are -- it is necessary to get 2400 delegates. we're going to have good days and bad days. but let's look at the long-term thing. we have momentum. >> this, the day after sanders and clinton faced off in a cnn town hall last night. here are the highlights in 90 seconds. >> your chair good? >> it's pretty good. what secretary clinton said i will do it if other people do it. i am very happy to release all of my paid speeches to wall street. here it is, chris, there ain't none.
>> why is there one standard for me and not for everybody else? >> do you agree to release these transcripts? >> sure, if everybody does it, including the republicans. >> this birther issue, a racist effort to try to delegitimize the president of the united states. i was -- my dad, as i mentioned came from poland. i'm running for president. nobody has asked for my birth certificate. maybe it's the color of my skin. i don't know. >> these five women have lost children to police actions and random senseless gun violence. there's no doubt that in each case there's a racial component to it. >> kids come up to me and say you've given me hope and you've rekindled my interest in democracy and politics. >> what do you think has been causing the gap between your supporters and sanders
supporters? >> i don't know. but i will support you and the young people of our country because that has been my life's work. >> all right. one thing sanders keeps hammering away at. clinton's wall street speeches. he wants ms. clinton to release the transcripts to see what she told to say goldman sacks. >> clinton says she will do that when other candidates release their transcripts' paid speeches. i know you're saying i don't have any but you've done speeches that were paid before. why don't you say here are my transcripts. >> that's not a problem. i have not had a paid speech -- it's against the law to give paid speeches. i have given speeches and money was given to charitities and i received a few dollars. but i will do it if other people
do it. well i'm very happy to release all of my paid speeches to wall street. here it is, chris, there ain't none. i don't do that. i don't get speakers fees from goldman sacks. it's not there. so, i'm happy to do my best. won't be very shocking to anybody. >> clinton says she is being held to a different standard and that she will release those transcripts but only under one condition. >> will you agree to release these transcripts? they have become an issue? >> sure, if everybody does it and that includes the republicans because we know they have made a lot of speeches but what is this about? it's about whether i have the best plan to go after wall street, whether i have a record that already demonstrates my willingness to take them on and there's no question about that. i did it before the 2008 crash. i have done it since in this
campaign. i have been absolutely clear and a lot of people have said i have the most comprehensive plan to make sure that wall street never wrecks main street again. >> so, let's talk about this. the director at the kbruniversi of virginia center of politics. and a strategist. welcome to both of i iyou. why doesn't she just release the transcripts and call it a day? >> because no doubt she made some very favorable comments about key people on wall street or key firms on wall street. it can be taken out of context or maybe even in context. it wouldn't be helpful as she's running against a candidate, bernie sanders whose platform is basically income inequality. that's why she doesn't want to do it. >> so her new argument is i'll release the transcripts if everybody does it, including
republicans. really? >> in fairness, she does get hit with a double standard and i think that's a fair criticism. but the problem is this is going to become one of those story lines where the media and others just keep going back and back and back to. is this going to influence the democratic primary voter? not likely. those who are going to be influenced by it, my guess is they're already going to head in one direction. but it does become a needless issue and distraction. probably less so in the primary but more so in the general and i think that's going to be the challenge. my guess is the republicans, whoever the nominee is going to end up being, they're going to bang on this drum again. that's why it's a needless distraction. >> something bernie sanders said that i hadn't realized is it's
against the law. so the fact that he has no transcripts to hand over, that doesn't really mean very much, does it? >> bernie sanders is running as a purest on these issues and as far as i can determine he probably is pretty pure and that's what many of his supporters love about him. now, in the real world let's understand what happens. presidents get out of office and sometimes first ladies and they cash in one way or the other and president clinton certainly did so. i think he earned over a number of years over $100 million in speaker fees. well, there were opportunities for hillary too. they were never very weltalthy, even just prior to the presidency, so they made up for lost time and now the chickens are coming home to roost.
>> maybe it won't matter so much in the primary but in the general. but that's bernie sanders's whole thing. he can't drop it and move it on to something else. he has south carolina coming up where he's expected to lose badly. i don't know how he's fairing in the rest of the states. you heard him in that presser saying don't write us off yet. is he right? >> listen. let's be honest. if you as a candidate running for president say you're going to win some, lose some, it usually is a measure that your campaign is not on a successful path. that's being brutally honest. he's going to lose south carolina pretty badly. and then you got super tuesday literally days after and if you look at states including texas, virginia, you know, he is down by double digits. and at some point you've got to
win in order to be viable and you can't just win vermont. you have to surprise somewhere. he can stay in because it is a proportional system in the sense of yes, you may get 30 or 40% and a number of delegates but people are going to start asking the question but you're not winning key states. why are you still in here? and at some point my guess is about midmarch that question is going to become pretty difficult toance ananswer. >> thanks to both of you. still to come, he's now clearly the republican frontrunner, so why are so many newspapers across the country slamming the possibility of a president donald trump? we'll talk about that next. ♪

and good morning, i'm carol costello. thank you so much for joining me. donald trump is basking in this big nevada win. he may go all the way. >> we won the evangelicals. we won with young, we won with old, we won with highly educated. we won with poorly educated. i love poorly educated. we're the smartest people and the most loyal people. 46% were the hispanics. 46%. number one. with hispanics. >> oh, but newspapers across the country are sounding the alarm
on a donald trump presidency and warning their readers about it. the new york daily news says he's successfully exploited a dark vision of america. and party leaders who support and celebrate his victory will be accomplices to an attack on the fundamental values of american democracy. they're saying vote for john kasich because it's a a vote against donald trump. editorials from the des moines register, the arkansas guzet have all described the possibility of a trump presidency as -- well, doom. i'm joined by los angeles editorial page editor. welcome to both of you. so, john, the l.a. times did not write a flattering editorial about a donald trump presidency
either. so, why are so many newspapers across the country writing such scathing editorials on trump? >> he has been hitting several of the hot button issues that editorial boards care about. we're all into policy. he has been talking about immigration and refugees in a way that are think are an athmuas to how most americans think. >> do you actually even know what his policy is? >> that's a good point. he has been describing most things as vague plans and saying whatever he does will be great. so, we're left to fill in the blanks based on a lot of the one-liners and offhanded comments he makes about the way he'll approach this country and the issues that face it. >> bill, why are so many newspapers across the country on the same page? is this unusual?
>> it's really unusual, i think. i think -- there's a whole lot of over heated rhetoric going on. he has a lot of over heated rhetoric and it's inspiring over heated response to him. the washington post said he was moral poison. it's over the top commentary about him and i think it's kind of antithetical to what their purpose is. this feeds into his narrative that everybody is against him and he can play with that in these kind of strong stringent statements against him being made by editorial boards. >> maybe you're on to something there, bill. because trump supporters and i'll pose this question to you, john. they hate the media. you only have to look at what happened to katy tur from net net news. quote trump trashes press, crowd
jeers, guy by press pen looks at us and screams you're a -- it rhymes with witch. other gentleman gives camera the double bird. so, are they making trump ever more popular? >> you may be confusing correlation with causation. i think that donald trump recognizes that there is relatively low popularity for the media. so, if you're bashing the media, you're not making a lot of in y inomies, right? it's an easy target. i see a lot of people looking at the things that he says and finding a visceral response by themselves. when we write editorials at the l.a. times, there's seven or so of us in the room. we're not talking to the editorial boards at the los
angeles daily news, at the new york times, that wall street journal. if we all happen to come to the same conclusion, it says something about the candidate, as well as about us. >> and bill, along those lines, it is the newspaper's responsibility to tell it like it is. it's an editorial board has a responsibility to do that. >> of course. i think they should. i think they have every right to say this is alarming. a lot of the rhetoric is alarming and i think people have the right to look at it and say is this legitimate. what he's done is appalling. i think in this context -- the republicans have always attacked the media but this guy is play nothing to the anger of the public. look at the poll numbers for anger and this is going to make it worse. i don't think it's going to make them change their minds.
>> john, i'll give you the last word on here because it's not like newspapers write editorials at a moment's notice. they sit down and think about i. so stand up for yourself a bit. >> sure. we hadn't yet indorsed in the presidential race. however, we have looked at the things that donald trump has said and looked at where we are on a lot of these issues and he has tried not just to be different and to occupy a policy place that's unique, he's tried to be outrageous, tried to provoke and yeah, there is some resinnocence resoninse but on the specificing it t -- specific things that he said you can't say we're going to ignore that because he's saying what a number of people want to
hear. that there's something good about that? i'm sorry. when he says that we shouldn't allow any muslims into the country or when he says that mexicans are some are good people but they're sending their worst into the united states, that kind of stuff we have to respond to because there has to be some push back to ideas that are, as has been described, poisonous. >> i think though, bill, that people right now, voters right now, don't really want to get into policy matters, per se. maybe when the general election rolls around, they'll listen to candidate's policies and then decide if those policies will really improve their lives. >> i think that's exactly right. i think -- look, the republicans have for years pushed this narrative of anger and fear and it's playing very well with that constituen constituency. he has very huge negatives and
you're going to see that more in the general election but right now why would he back off? he's not going to because the washington post is telling him to. >> thanks to both of you. still to come in the newsroom shocking new details into the suspected killer's past in kalamazoo. we'll have that next.
after a dvt blood clot.mind when i got out of the hospital what about my family? my li'l buddy? and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital but i wondered if this was the right treatment for me. then my doctor told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding,
like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. [martha and mildred are good to. go. here's your invoice, ladies. a few stops later, and it looks like big ollie is on the mend. it might not seem that glamorous having an old pickup truck for an office... or filling your days looking down the south end of a heifer, but...i wouldn't have it any other way. look at that, i had my best month ever. and earned a shiny new office upgrade. i run on quickbooks. that's how i own it. when they thought they should westart saving for retirement.le then we asked some older people when they actually did start saving.
this gap between when we should start saving and when we actually do is one of the reasons why too many of us aren't prepared for retirement. just start as early as you can. it's going to pay off in the future. if we all start saving a little more today, we'll all be better prepared tomorrow. prudential. bring your challenges.
hours before he allegedly gunned down six people. good morning. >> reporter: i spoke to the police chief earlier and he tells me the suspect legally purchased the firearm he used in the shooting. i spoke to the gun owner earlier and he said he was regular enough of a customer that he recognized him but he didn't purchase a gun and ammunition. he did purchase the conseal and carry jacket. and this was the first scene of the three that happened over the weekend that saw gun fire from this alleged suspect. i spoke with the neighbor of the first victim he shot at. >> i don't know if it was her mother instinct. she just knew something was
wrong. told her to run. >> reporter: so she was a hero in all of this? the kids could have been shot. >> the kids could have been shot and i thing she would have done it for anyone's kids. >> reporter: we have been looking into the mental health history of this suspect. he has no history and not on any medications either. what led him to allegedly shooting and killing six people, eight all together is unknown. carol. >> all right. reporting live from kalamazoo, michigan. still to come. from florida to virginia severe weather set to deliver another nasty blow. that's next. wilson books at la. avo: he gets a ready for you alert the second his room is ready. avo: so he knows exactly when he can settle in and practice his big pitch. avo: and when craig gets his pitch down pat, do you know what he becomes? client: great proposal! let's talk more over golf! craig: great. client: better yet, how about over tennis craig: even better.
