disagree with the president, including the president who has done such an extraordinary job. so i have voiced criticisms. maybe you haven't. i have. >> well, later sanders hit back on critic saying clinton's campaign is historic and he was thwarting history. >> well, you know, i think from the historical point of view, somebody with my background, somebody with my views, somebody who has spent his entire life taking on the big money interests, i think a sanders victory would be of some historical accomplishment as well. >> well, the share of twitter discussions was a dead tie, although sanders keeping with the recent traditions got more followers. clinton was able to narrow the gap from the start of the debate to the end. and now to the republican race and frontrunner donald trump who is really campaigning hard, hitting all groups. after a rally in baton rouge, he took time to autograph look at

campaign reporter for real clear politics. caitlyn, good morning. we had a late night with the democratic debate going on. another debate, another late night, but let's dive right into it. when you're talking about a night where we're seeing for once kind of this divide between hillary clinton and bernie sanders and getting nasty as some -- at some points. starting off with health care, then going into president obama and his legacy. let's talk about who came out on top and if hillary clinton, whether she did or not is getting the momentum that she needs after losing in new hampshire. >> well, certainly one of her goals is to blunt some momentum that bernie sanders getting after that new hampshire win, especially heading into nevada and south carolina. i think she talked -- she was able to talk about building upon the president's legacy. she talked a lot about how the president trusted her judgment, and she's definitely using that to appeal to voters. especially in south carolina where the president has a coalition built there. and voters -- democratic voter really like the president. so while sanders was able to
keep on his message, clinton was able to undercut him in some ways by talking a lot about, okay, how will you do this? she kept talking about leveling with the american people, that sort of thing. >> doing so in a -- aligning herself with the president as we know. some of the zingers that came out of that, bernie sanders saying one of us ran against president obama, i was not that candidate. the low blow comment and all of that. >> exactly. he is able to challenge her on every turn. i think that's what a lot of his supporters, you know, like about his candidacy. that he is some anti- -- he has some anti-establishment values so he's able to draw those contrasts on her really unafraid on that national stage. >> all right. i want to turn to the gop because we're talking about the clock ticking. at this point, how stoppable is donald trump because you have marco rubio, especially coming across, you know, fifth place in new hampshire. he's saying you know what, i think south carolina is going to
be where i'm going to come back. >> right. >> in this race. then you have jeb bush who has his brother george w. campaigning for him is that going to move the needle at all as far as chasing after trump? >> the south carolina race is in such a scramble right now. new hampshire didn't really provide much clarity so you have several seeking redemption in south carolina. jeb bush as you mentioned has the family connections, connections to veterans in the states, a big military state. his brother, george w. bush is campaigning for him on monday. marco rubio though has planned to win in south carolina for a long time. obviously, the new hampshire results will challenge that. meanwhile, donald trump won by a large margin in new hampshire and heads into south carolina with an advantage. >> well, i wish we had more time because i'll love to delve into ted cruz. about 60% of the voters are evangelicals and he had a poll -- i wish we had more time about this one. >> so much drama. >> caitlyn, cailtyn huey burns,
