johnny said i'm going to pay -- big win and a big loss. it is on to super tuesday as another chapter of the democratic primary is written in bold for hillary clinton. i'm alex witt here in new york city. this morning the bernie sanders camp is left to ponder their path forward. we have a live report ahead on the new state of that race. the same voices delivering the same insults being taken up a notch. >> this week, it is clear that donald's record is not that of a
president. >> little rubio, this guy has a fresh mouth, a very nasty guy -- >> when did we get to the point in this country where we can call these kinds of names and have people represent themselves as leaders in this country. enough of this trash. >> all of this with super tuesday looming some 48 hours across the southeast. we'll break it all down here, this is the place for politics. >> good morning everyone, it is
a tale of two campaigns. donald trump, the fights getting nastier as we get closer to super tuesday, let's take a listen. >> i will address little rubio. this guy has a fresh mouth. he is a very nasty guy. i actually thought that ted cruz was a liar, but rubio is worse. >> he put out a picture of me having make up put on me at the debate. the guy with the worst spray tan in america is attacking me for putting on make up. donald trump likes to sue people, he should sue whoever did that to his face. >> clinton has the wind at her back after the south carolina primary win. she is promising to take the
race to the next level. >> we have now gone through four early states and i want to congratulate senator sanders on running a great race. and tomorrow, this campaign goes national. >> despite the lost, sanders is still pinning his hopes on the super tuesday votes. >> texas will be giving more delegates than anyone else on super tuesday. we had a great rally in austin. this is fantastic. i think we have a surprise coming for some people on tuesday. >> this morning, msnbc on both sides of this race, gabe gutierrez is looking ahead for
us. on the democrats and hillary clinton's big win there, with a good morning to you, kristin, this was a resounding victory for secretary clinton, what does this mean for her going into super tuesday? >> this race fundamentally changed yesterday. the clinton campaign was hoping to beat senator sanders by 20 points and they far exceeded expectations. she beat senator sanders by close to 50 points. she got close to 90% of the vote here. she has strong support rung minorities. you have so many southern states, so it for shadows that if it holds she could have a big
turnout on super tuesday as well. meanwhile, senator sanders tried to tell supporters not to give up, the fight goes on. >> we don't need to make america great again, america has never stopped being grate. but, we do need to make america whole again. eninstead of building walls, we need to be tearing down barriers. >> on a given night, sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. i congratulate secretary clinton on her strong victory on
tuesday. over 800 delegates are at stake. >> the clinton campaign is hoping that the big win here will help put this race out of reach. both candidates will now focus on super tuesday. secretary clinton traveling to arkansas and tennessee. senator sanders to colorado and oklahoma. a little personal note, i have never seen secretary clinton's followers so fired up. >> okay, thank you so much for that, let's bring in betsy woodruff and alex.
alex, does this make hillary clinton unstoppable for the democratic nomination? alex, you never want to predict too far out in politics, but at this point you have to give her a path to the nomination. i think last night proved the case for hillary clinton which was that relationship with the minorities would put her on the path to the nomination. she surpassed expectations, and if these numbers hold, nevada, south carolina, if they hold or even come close to holding, you're looking at a blow out on delegates. and the frob for bernie sanders is that he is taking his hopes
on these northern states and there are just are not enough there for the nomination. >> is there still a path for sander's victory, and if so, which states are must wins for him? >> i think at this point it is hard to argue that sanders has a realistic chance. can couple that with the fact that hillary has a massive lead, and it is really hard to find a way to do the math that shows sanders winning. we department expect him to win in the state of event, but he is still doing much better than anyone expected. just a year ago when he announced at a small press conference on kyl, there was hardly any supporters there. now he is filling stadiums,
attracting massive crowds. he is capturing something about the democratic voting base that hiskt is not capturing. it is really hard to find a way that he snags a nomination here. >>. >> let's all go to virginia, gabe gutierrez here, we have just 48 hours to super tuesday, it will be a busy one. >>. >> good morning, with super tuesday just 48 hours away, donald trump is trying to keep his momentum, he is pulling ahead in virtually every super tuesday state except for texas, but again, marco rubio is making
stops today and making attacks against trump. rubio mocked trump for tweeting on what he called hair force one and his spray tan. it is really getting ugly out there. they launched a witness called trump slams.com. and the primary there is set for march 15th. >> i will stay in this campaign across 50 states if i have to. i will get in my pickup adrive across america if i have to. if we get this election wrong, we're going to have to explain
to my children's generation why we inherited the greatest country in the world and they did not. rubio and ruse released summaries of their tax filings. rub rubio's top year was 2012 when he released a book for cruz it was 2011 both candidates are calling on trump to release his tax returns. trump said he had not released them yet because he is being audited. >>. >> thank you for that, let's bring back in betsy woodruff. so much has been made of donald trump and his tax returns. you see the summaries of the
recent tax filings, dust that put your pressure on him? it might, but it will not likely have a impact. they have brought us issues that are in this train, questions about his back and trump university. and it just doesn't impact his poll numbers at all whatsoever. in massachusetts, trump has more support than the number two and the number three guy combined. the same thing in alabama, trump has more support there than rubio and cruz together. you will find two states less in common. i don't think it will have any impact the day after tomorrow.
>> the loan star state, alex, that could hold a key, the latest poll shows that cruz is leading his home state, 38% of the vote right now, how important that ted cruz beat donald by a wide margin in texas. >> trump really has momentum now, and if ted cruz can stop him anywhere, it has to be texas, his home state. not just for the number of delegates, but also for the wider sense of momentum and the trajectory of the race at large. it will be cruz or rubio that stops him, rubio has not yet won a state, cruz needs to do well in texas. >> give some thought to the wednesday morning headlines and
we'll bring you back in about ten minutes or so for those. and the former spokes man for the cruz campaign tells if whether or not he thinks he can win the nomination or if it is time for him to bow out. >> it is exciting when it sounds like they care about me and when they care about people different from themselves, too. urgent diarrhea. it could be ibs-d. new prescription xifaxan is an ibs-d treatment that helps relieve your diarrhea and abdominal pain symptoms. do not use xifaxan if you have a history of sensitivity to rifaximin, rifamycin antibiotic agents, or any components of xifaxan. tell your doctor right away if your diarrhea worsens while taking xifaxan, as this may be a sign of a serious or even fatal condition. tell your doctor if you have liver disease or are taking other medications, because these may increase the amount of xifaxan in your body. tell your doctor if you are pregnant, plan on becoming pregnant, or are nursing. the most common side effects are nausea
and an increase in liver enzymes. ask your doctor about new xifaxan. a 401(k) is the most sound way to go. let's talk asset allocation. sure. you seem knowledgeable, professional. i'm actually a dj.

matters, come out and vote. this is my future, my kid, my grandkids. this is my country, dand stand d fight for it together. >> that was ted cruz stepping back a little yesterday after a few quiet days on the trail. joining me now is former national spokesman for senator cruz, rick tyler. good morning to you, we just saw cruz, trying to whip up some excitement. how much standing can he really regain in the next 48 hours? >> i think he can. last night he was in little rock. he will finish up, this is his third trip to the south. first was a bus tour, and look, tlekz be very important for him.
the fact is, alex, that if rubio and cruz are both in this race, it will be very hard to overcome donald trump. there was really only one chance to beat trump and that is cruise. that is because rubio's votes, mostly like go to cruz, and cruz voters most likely go to trump. and ben carson is just a spoiler taking 6% or 7% of the vote. he serves no purpose. he should get out. >> how about kasich? >> he is a problem for rubio, that is for sure. but until this comes down to a two-person race, i think that is the only way to beat trump. trump will have a lot of money spent against him. cruz has a chance to win his home state. it doesn't look like rubio has a chance to win his home state. and if he can't, close to 60% of
the delegates getting out, it could be too late. >> looking at all of these stepped up attacks, what states are trump vulnerable in. >> rubio is, he will do better in the northern states. not as well in the southern states. so massachusetts, vermont, michigan, and cruz will do better in the southern states. but again, look at this -- if this race is not settled down to two people pretty soon, it will be hard to stop donald trump. and the problem with rubio now too is that he is attacking trump, not on substantive issues, but calling each other liars and nasty. this is like running for president of the sixth grade, not like president of the united states.
cruz stuck to the substance and the issues and now he brought up the fact that donald won't release tax returns. trumps says he is being audited, but that is even more of a reason to be release them, it looks hike he has a problem. >> if you look at all of the surveys and polls, it shows that marco rubio would do better than ted cruz against hillary clinton. and you're saying that -- >> the problem is that argument, after that argument for mccain, romney, i heard those arguments. they tell us that every time enevery time we lose. the reason is someone like ted cruz will rally the base, con serve ti -- conservative party, and marco rubio won't. and his problem is that he
doesn't have any significant accomplishments. his one was getting the gauge of eight passed and that will not be popular with the republican party. if you turn out, you win -- >> rick, is there anything about ted cruz that makes him a team player? if by march 15th, everyone has coalesced around one party, does he win the party? >> if ted cruz does the right thing for the party he will win. >> in a moment, forecasting wins after super tuesday. when heartburn hits
fight back fast tums smoothies starts dissolving the instant it touches your tongue and neutralizes stomach acid at the source tum, tum, tum, tum smoothies! only from tums and i quit smoking with i'm chantix. i decided to take chantix to shut everybody else up about me quitting smoking. i was going to give it a try, but i didn't really think it was going to really happen. after one week of chantix, i knew i could quit. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix definitely helped reduce my urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior,
thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side-affect is nausea. being a non-smoker feels great. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you.

bernie sanders puns. bern out. it is likely he will have a rough night. brace yourself for cheesy work plays. >> alex? >> i think we might see the unofficial kick off of the general election. there is a chance hillary clinton and donald trump will be on the unofficial locks for nomination there. for ted cruz, he needs big wins in the south. rubio needs to win somewhere ahead of florida, and then john kasich and ben carson will drop out. >> do you think if staanders doesn't get better headlines he will drop out? >> i think he will stick around to march 15th. >> that will do it for me this morning, i'm alex wit "your
