it. i am a unifier. i would love to see the republican party and everybody get together and unify and when we unify, there's nobody, nobody that's going to beat us. i beat hillary in many polls p.. i don't think marco's going to be able to beat her. i'm going to get along great with congress. paul ryan, i don't know him well and we're going to get along well and if we don't, he's going to have to pay a big price, okay. >> and hillary clinton touch ogen the water crisis in flint, michigan and criticizing the gop. >> thank you all so much. what a super tuesday. i'm grateful to all of you who voted for me. to the volunteers and organizers. out. we know there are many other
communities that are hurting and need help but wreever come too far in this country to let us turn back. we're going to b bld on the progress that we've made. the rhetoric we're hearing on the other side has never been lower. trying to divide america between us and them is wrong and we're not going to let it work. now this campaign moves forward to the crescent city, the motor city and beyond. [ applause ] >> ted cruz surprised some political watchers by taking oklahoma and of course, he had an impressive win in his home state of texas as well as a late victory in alaska. he pitched himself as the trump alternative. >> for the republicans that don't want to see donald as the nominee, i would welcome and encourage them. the only way to beat donald trump is for us to stand
if donald trump is the nominee, i think we lose the senate, lose to hillary, lose the supreme court for a generation and the bill of rights. it's my hope that asarty we madness. do not nominate a candidate who will drive the party off a cliff. >> well, cruz was able to pick up 171 delegates, rubio, 82 and the donald won 210 delegates, bringing his total to 292. clinton won seven to bernie sanders's four. but he's not too concerned. >> you're going to see a lot of election result ss come in. these are not -- this is not a general election. it's not winner take all.
end up with the same amount of delegates in a state. by the end of tonight, we are going to win many hundreds of delegates.

tuesday cleared, we can look deeper into the exit poll data. we found something very promising for republicans but potentially worrying for democrats. >> we can tell you everything you're saying on the republican side, this is what we've been seeing the whole year. they're shattering records. having their best turnout ever. on the flip side, we've been seeing it down on the democrats side. since the last time they had one of these competitive primaries, that was 2008, obama. virginia, down 14%. vermont, down 13%. massachusetts, down 5, georgia down 2. look, there's two ways to look at that. one is bernie sanders, the entire message of his campaign is this is a political revelationrev revolution revolution, it's going to bring all these new people to the
participated before. if that was coming to fruition, they would be shattering records. 2008, there are democrats who say yes, it's troubling the turn out is up and the democratic turnout is down. but they would say 2008 is something we may never see again. that race between hillary clinton and barack obama and the type of support that both of them motivated, the iraq war, post katrina, bush fatigue. there were so many factors in the air in 2008 that it's a little unfair to compare the democrats of 2008 to the democrats of any future. >> and we have the numbers right here. as of 3:30 a.m. eastern, the super tuesday turnout has nearly flipped from 2008. something candidates in both parties will be looking to play into their favor.. and more emotional testimony
