good evening. and it's great to have you with us here on a monday night. and we begin with fast-moving developments on the eve of the super tuesday showdown. and the central question this evening -- can any of the republican candidates stop donald trump? and hillary clinton, after her resounding win in south carolina, what is bernie sanders' path? the new national poll tonight showing donald trump surging ahead, now the choice of half of republican voters. and, for the democrats, hillary clinton leading 55% to sanders' 38%. but donald trump facing new questions about the ku klux klan, claiming he couldn't hear during an interview when asked about david duke. senator marco rubio taking aim at trump again tonight. and hillary clinton shifting her message, in a line aimed at trump, as well. is she turning to the national race now? and this evening, from a trump rally in virginia, that's a "time" magazine photographer taken down by a secret service agent.
our team on it all, and abc's tom llamas, leading us off from georgia. >> reporter: tonight, on the eve of super tuesday, tension erupting at a trump rally in virginia. >> get them out of here, please. >> reporter: a large group of student protesters marched out of the event. and as they pass, a photographer from "time" magazine, thrown to the ground by a secret service agent. watch again. the agent's hands around the photographer's neck. then, with the man still on the ground, an angry exchange of words. the secret service, now investigating. but that wasn't all. trump singling out another protester, asking if she's mexican. >> are you from mexico? are you from mexico? right smack in the middle of my punch line. >> reporter: today's confrontations coming as the republican front-runner finds himself in the middle of a new controversy. dodging a question about whether he will reject the support of former ku klux klan grand wizard david duke. >> would you just say, unequivocally, you condemn them and you don't want their support?
>> well, i have to look at the group. i mean, i don't know what group you're talking about. >> i mean, i'm just talking about david duke and the ku klux klan here. but -- >> i don't know -- honestly, i don't know david duke. i don't believe i've ever met him. i'm pretty sure i didn't meet him. i just don't know anything about him. >> reporter: today, trump under fire, saying he didn't understand the question. >> so, let me tell you, i'm sitting in a house in florida with a very bad ear piece that they gave me. and you could hardly hear what he was saying. >> reporter: but trump clearly knows who david duke is. listen to what he said in 2000. >> david duke just joined, a bigot, a racist, a problem. i mean, this is not exactly the people you want in your party. >> reporter: and friday, trump said this. >> i didn't even know he endorsed me. david duke endorsed me? okay, all right. i disavow, okay? >> reporter: but trump's tepid response to duke and the klan drawing anger from his rival, senator marco rubio. >> he blamed it on a bad ear piece, that he couldn't hear the question. i don't care how bad the ear piece is, ku klux klan comes through pretty clearly, and he refuses to criticize it. >> reporter: this weekend, rubio
and trump engaging in an epic schoolyard name-calling war. >> i have never seen a human being sweat like he sweats. >> he doesn't sweat because his pores are clogged from the spray tan that he uses. >> little marco rubio -- a total, total featherweight. >> i don't understand why his hands are the size of someone who is 5'2". have you seen his hands? they're like this. and, you know what they say about men with small hands. you can't trust them. >> reporter: left out of the trump/rubio brawl, senator ted cruz, camped out in his home state in texas, hoping a victory there keeps him in the race. >> if you don't want to see donald trump as our nominee and you don't want to see hillary clinton win the general, then, i ask for you to join us. >> and tom llamas joining us live from a trump rally in georgia, and tom, growing concern tonight among some leading republicans of the prospect of donald trump as the republican nominee? >> reporter: david, that's
right. the republican party could be headed for a civil war. as trump speaks behind me tonight, there is a growing chorus of republican members of congress who say they will not support trump if he's the gop nominee. david? >> we can see donald trump right there at the rally behind you. tom llamas leading us off again tonight. tom, thank you. melania trump also speaking out tonight. saying she doesn't always agree with her husband, especially, she says, his language. including when he repeated a crude word a woman at one of his events shouted out to describe ted cruz. >> i was in new hampshire when the woman was shouting out the inappropriate word. and i was there, and i'm thinking, like, don't repeat it, in my head, just for him, don't repeat it. just don't say it, because the next day, media, all they will talk about is that. but he repeated. >> mrs. trump telling cnn that afterward, she did share her thoughts with her husband. we turn next tonight to the democrats, hillary clinton, fresh off her rout in south carolina, hoping to do the same in other southern states tomorrow.
bernie sanders hoping to win his home state of vermont and several others, to stay alive in this race. and tonight, mrs. clinton with a new response to donald trump's make america great message. abc's cecilia vega in virginia now. >> all right, everybody, are you fired up? >> reporter: tonight, hillary clinton hoping to sweep the south and win super tuesday. >> if you go out and vote for me tomorrow, i will stand up and fight for you throughout this campaign, no matter who the republicans nominate. >> reporter: in virginia, with just hours left until voting begins, clinton feeling confident. secretary clinton, your super tuesday prediction? >> just happy to be in virginia, working hard for every vote. every single vote. >> reporter: she's riding a wave of momentum after her south carolina blowout, winning 86% of the black vote. that's even more than president obama won in 2008. now, she's looking for a repeat tomorrow in states like georgia and alabama, where african-americans make up half
of all democratic voters. >> and tomorrow, this campaign goes national. >> reporter: bernie sanders now facing tough questions about the future of his campaign. >> we got decimated. but we got killed. >> reporter: while he packed in the crowds today -- >> we can win, no question, here in minnesota, if we have a turnout. >> reporter: the vermont senator logged just two stops on the campaign trail. while clinton and her husband made a super-sized super tuesday push, visiting three different states and eight different cities. both clintons now have their eyes on the same target -- donald trump. >> when the republicans say they want to make america great again, she doesn't agree with that. she said, we never stopped being great. >> i don't think america has ever stopped being great. what we need to do now is make america whole. >> reporter: and just tonight, the state department releasing the final batch of hillary clinton's e-mails from her private server. more than 50,000 pages in all. and while she's certainly glad
to have this chapter behind her, she now heads into super tuesday with that fbi investigation still hanging over her head, david. >> cecilia vega with us tonight. cecilia, thanks. let's get right to abc's jonathan karl, who's got the telestrator, the super tuesday map. and we want to help voters at home tonight know what to look for. can donald trump be stopped tomorrow? >> reporter: the short answer is yes, but it won't be easy. let's get right to the map. the key state for both marco rubio and ted cruz is texas. the biggest delegate prize of all on tuesday. it's ted cruz's home state. he absolutely must win. but marco rubio's got to be above 20%, or he'll get none of the delegates. meanwhile, in all the other super tuesday states, there's not a single one where donald trump is trailing. they've got to at least keep it close in the others. >> meantime, jon, on the democratic side tonight, we saw what hillary clinton did over the weekend. same question for you. can she be stopped? >> reporter: yes, but it's even harder than stopping donald trump. look, vermont, bernie sanders' home state, votes, neighboring massachusetts, he'll probably win up there. but he's got to find a way to beat or be very close to hillary
clinton down south. and remember, he just got trounced in south carolina, down there. if he gets beat again in the south, it will be virtually impossible for him to catch up. >> all right, jon karl, see you tomorrow night. can't wait to join you. in the meantime, as i head back to the desk, i want to show everyone the weather maps tonight. but the weather could play into the voting tomorrow. take a look. severe storms in oklahoma tonight. tomorrow, moving across arkansas, all the way to georgia. the weather team telling us 13 million people in its path. at the northern edge, snow from the great lakes into maine, including bernie sanders' home state of vermont. we'll be watching that. stay with abc news for full coverage on super tuesday, with special editions of "good morning america" and a full hour of "world news tonight." then, of course, george and the entire powerhouse political team will all be here on the air, beginning at 10:00 p.m. eastern tomorrow night. in the meantime tonight, we do move on now, to other breaking news this evening. a shooting in a school cafeteria. one student wounding two others. two more students hurt trying to get out of the way. the shooter then running into the woods, where he was caught by a police canine team.
