jonathan: welcome back, 7:10 on your sunday morning. and commitment former governor 2016, jeb bush will not be following in the presidential footprints of his father and older brother this year. jeb bush dropped out of the race for the white house last night after finishing fourth in saturday' s south carolina primary. essentially tying with ohio governor john kasich. meanwhile hillary clinton came , out on top in nevada beating bernie sanders by double digits. all this giving us a better look at the state of the race and what the results could mean going forward. political analyst marc sandalow joins us live from washington to good morning, thank you for joining us. talk about his victory in south carolina. it was expected.
marc: think of his strategy to win in south carolina. he went after john mccain for not being a war hero. he said the war in iraq was a terrible mistake and that george w. bush was a liar for taking us into it. he got in a fight with the pope the last few days. he wins by double digits. it suggests there is something more going on in the polls in south carolina suggesting -- that anger has a lot to do with it. anger at washington, at the establishment. anger at immigrants, anger at muslims. whether anger can overtake hope in the long run remains to be seen. south carolina' s victory showed us for sure that donald trump can make mistake after mistake in the traditional sense and still go on to victory. jonathan: may end up not being mistakes in a way. he is riding a wave that a lot of pundits did not see. jeb bush, departure from the race shakes it up a bit. i guess that makes marco rubio
where is our governor, john kasich, to into this scene? marc: here is the good news for john kasich. i am guessing at least a quarter of the country has heard of him and maybe one out of 10 pronounces his name incorrectly. that is a huge step forward. he has been the tortoise in this race. he has been steady, not been one making mistakes, he is the guy in his own campaign strategy that if you are looking for a steady hand, if voters start to get panicked over the rhetoric of donald trump or fire enis of -- fieryness of crews and rubio, you can go for kasich. he has a long way to go. jonathan: a good story to tell when people realize he has been in washington and run a state. they feel more accountable about him, it seems. let' s talk about the other side. hillary
the defensive or does his claim of continuing to write be popular wave culture -- hold true? marc: bernie sanders was rejecting clinton' s argument that only she can win minority votes. it is true that sanders won a majority of hispanics was her mark. african americans overwhelmingly went for hillary clinton here next week in south carolina, half of the register democrats are african-american. that is critical. democrats don' t win without minority support. the last democratic president to win a majority of the white vote was 1964, lyndon b. johnson. he would need to prove that he could win the african-american vote to be the nominee and he is not there. jonathan: it is shaping up to be an interesting race from this point forward. not that it is not already been. mark center low washington, d.c.. thank you for joining us.
