it is beautiful. >> i am so, so thrilled and so grateful to all of my supporters out there. the fight goes on. the future that we want is within our grasp. >> this has become a three-person race and we will win the nomination. >> together, we will win the republican nomination. >> we will beat the democrats in november. >> i believe in a when democrats
assemble in philadelphia, in july, at convention, we will see the results of one of the great political upsets in the history of the united states. tales of victory, almost victory, and outright defeat. sorting the winners from the losers, this is the place for politics. good morning, everyone. i'm alex witt. if you awoke this morning thinking there would be clarity this morning. here is how it looks at this hour, donald trump road to victory in south carolina. he outpaced his closest rival by
ten points. the real battle game for second place. marco rubio edged out senator cruz. and here is trump on his big win. >> so everybody, i love you all. again -- let's go, let's have a have a big win -- let's put this away. >> and rubio and cruz both in their own way declaring success. >> many thought it was over. some at doubts about whether or not we would wind up here now. south carolina will always be the place of new beginning and new starts. >> once again we have made
history. the good people of south carolina and our incredible volunteers all over the country. continue to defy the odds. >> the most surprising story line, perhaps of the entire campaign, the once apparent favorite, jeb bush, leaving the race after three g.o.p. contests. the people of iowa, new hampshire, and south carolina have spoken and i respect their decision. tonight i am suspending my campaign. i have stood my ground, refusing to bend to the political whims. we put together conservative detai details. >> in the end, there will not be a bush 45 after a bush 41 and
bush 43. >> marco rubio will be holding events today, and donald trump is in atlanta, georgia setting sights on that super tuesday state. a big win for hillary clinton in the caucuses, but bernie sanders made up a lot of ground in the last month. and here they are in victory and defeat. >> i want to thank each and every one of you. you turned out in every corner of this state with determination and purpose. hotel and casino workers who never waivered. students with too much debt and small business owners who never go off of the clock. temperatures of thousands of men and women with dreams, this is
your campaign. >> i believe that on super tuesday, we have an excellent chance to win many of those states. what i also know is that on super tuesday and before, we are going to be attacking on a very powerful and well funded super pack. a super pack that will not support wall street and special interests. >> sanders is in north carolina and clinton is taking a break today. kerry sanders is following in south carolina today, what is the conventional wisconsin o dom for this race moving forward? >> the unconventional candidate has hit the ground and really
disrupted politics in america nap is donald truch flp is no a not -- trump is. he won by more than 10%. he did an amazing job. when they attack a look at what he brought to the table, he doesn't go out and shake hands. he has a little phone banking, but he does it very different. he gets in front of a large crowd, he gives a speech, and he urges them to go vote. yesterday he collected phone numbers, he was texting voters saying please go out and vote. as we look at the numbers here, donald trump wins in south carolina. remember he did well, number two in iowa, he won in new hampshire. this was only did trump last night. >> i just want to congratulate the other candidates, it's not easy running for president, i can tell you.
it's tough, nasty, mean, and vicious. it's beautiful. when you win, it's beautiful. we're going to start winning for our country. >> it was are a dead heat for second place, marco rubio and ted cruz battling out for second position. the separation here is so very small, it doesn't appear that either of these men is going to say they didn't win. they didn't win overall, but they say claiming the second spot is indeed what it is about for them right now. this was ted cruz last night. >> you look at marco rubio. he was a popular member of congress, the entire south carolina establishment circled around him. even with $50 million in advertising has yet to finish
better than third in any of the primary states. >> now we're hearing about advertising. just to give you a snapshot of how expensive these races are, jeb bush spent $13 million here in south carolina for 12,480 ads. a tremendous amount of money that was apparently not enough to move his campaign through to the next level. the former governor of florida, jeb bush of the bush dynasty, deciding that he goes no further from here. this was jeb bush last night. >> i am proud of the campaign that we have run to unify our country and to advocate conserve testify solutions that would give more americans the opportunity to rise up and reach their potential. the people of iowa, new hampshire, south carolina have
spoken and i am suspending my campaign. >> so the question now, for those that supported jeb bush, is who will they support? will they coalesce around donald trump if he gets the republican nomination. in the room last night, i met several voters that said they would find that very difficult. it is not uncommon after a bruising primary for republican voters to feel hurt. this race seems different. i hear people saying they cannot support donald trump. >> thank you very much, kerry sanders for that look at everything. thank you for that. i'm joins by elise jordan, casy, and kaitlyn hewy-burns.
thank you for joining me at this early hour. i want to get your take away, the major one, if you have one point from south carolina from each of you. elise, you go first. >> that ted cruz had a very, very bad night. i don't see where the road forward gets better for him. his whole strategy is based on a state like south carolina where he would have strong support and he could not carry it. >> katie, your top take away? >> senator cruz has a much more difficult road ahead. he called a firewall and south carolina was the first to kick that off and he did not perform as well as he opened here. that could make the strategy going into the south more difficult. >> i would point to marco rubio who came in second by a hair and is claiming that as a victory,
but i think his path forward is also very difficult. she going to be propelled into the tour states, and i think the path for rubio will be difficult not having won a state yet. i think the question remains where can he win and win big? >> kaitlyn, one of the most interesting things out of the exit poll are the points at which that donald trump supporters continue to win more. 24% say in the last few days or so. 31% say in the last month. 56% said we decided before that. doesn't it bolster the argument that he could do no wrong and still win? >> right, this week was a remarkable week in politics given the variety of things that donald trump said from bashing the bush family in the beginning of the week to the hope later
on. it seems like his campaign has been made of teflon, and i think he will continue on to these other states with that in mind. i think it is now that the ration has narrowed, theoretically, to three candidates, but john kasich is pledging to stay in through the midwest. ben carson of course still in the race. i am interested to see if they will pile on trump or if they will take on each other. >> there is a debate and there is also neff. the next test for the republicans. donald trump is leading by 26 points. is there a clear path for donald trump, or do you see momentum stopping at a certain point? >> i see him doing great in the s.e.c. states.
he put in a lot of time in those different states having huge rallies in alabama, mississippi, and georgia today i think he will do well there. the only hope for the rubio campaign is that come march 15th he could do well in the winner take all states. you have illinois, ohio, florida all in one day. if he could take three out of the five, he could sweep up 230 delegates and be tied around where trump would be. that's a very optimistic katie is this a three-person race now? our does kasich have an outside chance still? >> it makes it much more difficult, his showing last night. he did well in new hampshire. he did not do well last night. he is looking forward to the
northeastern and midwestern states. just seeing the battle between rubio and cruz makes it look like a three-person race. >> yeah, and where did jeb bush's voters go now? >> i think they probably go to rubio which seems odd, but i think that ted cruz is just not paletteb paletteble. and kasich bunt have enough momentum for people though throw support behind him. i think it looks like rubio. >> okay, ladies, stay where you are. hillary clinton takes the gold, but is there a silver lining for bernie sanders? i really think just like the
bushes, i'm sick of the same people being in over and over. and we just want something different. not making the same decisions all of the time. >> bernie sanders has great ideas, but in this congress they will hard to get on. before i had the shooting, burning, pins-and-needles of diabetic nerve pain, these feet served my country, carried the weight of a family, and walked a daughter down the aisle. but i couldn't bear my
diabetic nerve pain any longer. so i talked to my doctor and he prescribed lyrica. nerve damage from diabetes causes diabetic nerve pain. lyrica is fda approved to treat this pain. from moderate to even severe diabetic nerve pain. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior. or swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling or blurry vision. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain and swelling of hands, legs, and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who have had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. now i have less diabetic nerve pain. and my biggest reason to walk calls me grandpa. ask your doctor about lyrica. i built my business with passion. but i keep it growing by making every dollar count. that's why i have the spark cash card from capital one.
grateful to all of my supporters out there. some may have doubted us, but we never doubted each other. and here are the results with clinton winning with 53% of the vote to sanders 47%. a college kristin welker is in las vegas for us early this morning, we thank you. what pushed hillary clinton over the edge after being neck and neck with bernie. >> secretary clinton set up robust campaign apparatus here six months prior to sanders. but you raid an important point. we saw her strategy change after that defeat that she had in new hampshire. she got more specific in her message, talking about breaking
d down barriers. second a very aggressive outreach to african-american voters. she took a trip to flint michigan. she was in chicago earlier this week. she got a huge endorsement. on friday just before caucus goers went to have their say here in nevada, all of that together supported the african-american voters. s then i will mention one more point, i have been talking to her campaign officials, there is a lot of credit for her campaign manager who happened her win in evidence in 2008, but she lost the delegate count back then. this time around they focused more heavily on the delegate
rich areas and the ground game and they believe that's what helped put her over the edge here. >> thank you from las vegas. >> the campaign road ahead now goes to south carolina for democrats. and that is trust a prelude to super tuesday that is coming up. and what bernie sanders needs to do as a win in south carolina seems unlikely. ♪jake reese, "day to feel alive"♪

it is clearer and clearer now that hillary clinton is well positioned in skaerouth carolin. vermont will be voting and he has a lead there. once when get away from iowa, new hampshire, and into states with a more diverse elector rate, more favorable to democrats, that she would do well. i think bernie sanders can obviously stay in this race. he has a lot of money and he has closed the gap a little bit. so i think he can take that away. zlaen to your point, we should say more about the 86-10, but it is his state. how big is the set back for bernie sanders with a loss in south carolina. >> it is a big set back. clinton looks good going into south carolina. she has been here quite a bit.
you know as kaitlyn said, senator sanders is looking stronger in states down the like. vermont and massachusetts. this is definitely a set back for him coming into south carolina. >> and do you think sanders can win by continuing the same line of attack like wall street and her vote on iraq. >> i don't know if he can expand his dais. he did do seemingly better with the latino vote, but he has to get more than just white voters. >> who do republicans want to face in november? >> i think bernie sanders would be the most attractive option for republicans to go up against e against, but hillary clinton is a weak, flawed candidate and
she just -- the e-mail issues she has, those are not going acay. she has problem after problem, so i think republicans will be ready to exemployment that. thank you so much. that what happens up our live coverage of the battle for the white house. up next, your business and then "morning joe" at 8:00 eastern.
