analyst don keller. trump winning is no surprise. does rubio get any bump out of this quick. >> i think he does. he over performed his whole numbers and he's back from the dead after his dismal showing in new hampshire but the fact is his burden is intense. he's got to consolidate the establishment support behind him and he's got to do it fast. he's got to clear the debate stage and make himself the clear trump alternative and that's not going to be easy especially because he has to do it before march 15th when winner take all primaries kick in. if trump stays on a roll until then, then you are talking big trouble. >> john kasich said he's not getting out so doesn't that complicated? >> it could just by his mere presence. an extra body and the debate
away from rubio. let's be honest about it, john kasich and ben carson's campaign our vanity projects. there is no clear path for either one of them to become serious factors. john kasich is here in massachusetts, to have him here the last polling i saw it donald trump running away with the massachusetts primary in rubio has. >> stick around we will talk democrats in just a second. it's talk a little bit now. it was hillary clinton who pulled out a crucial victory on the democratic contest. clinton overcame an unexpectedly strong surge by bernie sanders. clinton thanked the voters who gave her the win. >> thank you. tens of thousands of men and women with kids to raise and
this is your campaign and it is [ cheering ] -- it is a campaign to break down every barrier that holds you back. clinton's campaign tried to dampen expectations. was this win big enough to stop the sanders surge? >> not necessarily. sanders has plenty of money and he's done a fantastic job of excite -- l -- of exciting younger brother -- voters but it was the african-american vote that put hillary clinton over the top. they broke more than three to one for her and we are heading into the democratic race word democrat -- will african- americans will dominate. tonight it's paging elizabeth warren. keep in mind the broader context. the number of voters turning out and republican primaries is overwhelming the democratic turnout and you've got to
running against donald trump is a republican nominee won't serve -- persuade someone like elizabeth warren to get off the fence and step in and make a call with the imperative being we've got to consolidate sooner rather than later. >> john, thanks for your analysis. the next big event is super tuesday on march 1st. 13 states including massachusetts will hold primaries or caucuses with nearly a quarter of all delegates needed. >> switch gears a little bit. tonight a touch of spring outside and meteorologist barry burbank is here now and he's got your first look at the forecast. >> it was a week ago tonight temperatures below zero in boston to go down below zero just before midnight last saturday night and now we are looking at temperatures this morning 33 but not going below 40 for low tomorrow morning
