8:00 pm
actually show up on tuesday to vote for trump. >> he's got a campaign manager who is from new hampshire. >> now the stakes are higher. he has to win. >> mr. he will catch fire. >> that's the big story. >> just hold on one moment. welcome to our special coverage of tonight's gop debate. joining me again our chief political analyst gloria borger and david axelrod.
8:01 pm
the former senior advisor to mitt romney's 2012 campaign. it was a very big night for a couple of candidates and a bad night for others. let's get started with tonight's winners and losers. let's start with you, gloria. the winner. >> i didn't change my mind. i think marco did not have a great night. i thought he had a debate he lost with chris christie on his experience. i think the governors all did well. i think kasich, bush and christie did well. we'll have to see. >> david. >> i thought the big winner were people who had executive appearance. that included the governors as well as donald trump. i think the fact they're more
8:02 pm
pragmatic than people in congress. both cruz and rubio. plays well to new hampshire voter. people are looking for answers. they want leaders who can get something done. we saw experience does matter in how you think about things. >> the loser. >> the loser was marco rubio. >> agreed. he's got something hanging over his head. this narrative about not being prepared. i think he's got to figure that out going forward. i thought trump kind of won by not losing. he didn't get in the middle of big fights. it was the moment with jeb around imminent domain. >> cruz was the winner in iowa. he isn't a big player in new
8:03 pm
hampshire. like not being prepared to have his finger on the button. i thought he kind of wimped out on that. >> some you have have dogs in this fight. you're a donald trump supporter. let's go down the line here. winner, loser. >> i think the governors had a good night. for the first time i've heard at length, donald trump talked about his own executive experience which i think is propelling some of his support. one of ludsers, if i can say was ben carson. i think we're rapidly seeing this disappear. he's such a nice guy.
8:04 pm
>> you're the first person mentioned his name. >> chris christie is the winner. >> he was in such complete control. i was wondering if he was the moderator. i don't think it will help his campaign because he was so vicious to marco rubio. i think there's some blood that spattered back. >> could be after tuesday he will be available to be the moderator. >> going on the attack, i pictured him as vp in a vise presidential debate. >> i think it was sort of a murder/suicide with chris christie. it's not going to help christie. >> rubio comes out of iowa in third place. he might as well have won. he had all this momentum going into new hampshire.
8:05 pm
if he finishes ahead of kasich and jeb. he then owns the establishment lane. it becomes clearly a three-man race. rubio had a bad night for a bad debate. >> i think if we're going from first to worst, i would disagree that christie had a strong debate. i think he controlled the tone and tempo of the debate. he beat rubio on points with that head to head exchange that they had. carson was almost nonexistent. he's a nonfactor now. this may have been one of his last debates. have to get much stronger during the debate. i think he recovered nicely. i think ploem is a vemomentum i commodity. i don't know if he will continue to keep that. it could have stopped him now. that's one thing to be factor. to agree with something amanda said, chris christie will
8:06 pm
probably be the most effective surrogate we have in going after hillary clinton in the general election. he's going to be around even if the campaign may end. >> it's interesting on this table it turned from rubio had a bad night and you all started to turn to at the end he got better. >> he did get better. >> how do you close the deal? >> we have governor kasich tells us how to close the deal. >> we have an army of people. we'll knock on every door in this state. i'm going to continue to do town halls. massive amounts of media. closing the deal is running through the tape. this was important tonight. not the only thing that matters. i think we had a good ninety. >> you feel pretty good about where you're sitting. if something was to change, where do you think you theed to finish to guarantee you will go onto south carolina? >> we'll be fine. we'll tell you on the tenth.
8:07 pm
>> there's a lot of independents here. this is wide open election that could go to trump, bernie sanders or you. why p do you think they will turn out for you. what is different? >> people like that i've been positive. it paints a vision and hope and opportunity. >> you ever worry you'll get lost in the shuffle of republicans going at each other's throats on a stage like that? >> the last thing i want to do is be in the middle of going at each other's throats. i think tonight went well. i'm happy. so is everybody in our after debate party room. we're going and will have great night on tuesday. >> you think you have the big momentum in this state? >> i know we do.
8:08 pm
it's driven by people. it's people who have a sense that things could be difference. if we do really well and get out of here with a strong finish, you'll be talking about this positive cam campaigning and politics works. >> one more question. you have done this once before. people might not remember it was a long time ago you ran for president. how much different does this time feel? >> i was just a kid back then. i talked to this lady for 15 minutes. she looked at her watch and said when do you think the candidate will get here? you can't even compare the two. this is an incredible experience. i want to say this, regardless of what happens, this has been a fantastic period of my life. it's been remarkable. i'm a happy man. we all are. on the bus, traveling around. we have a great time. new hampshire, i need you.
8:09 pm
see you. >> all right. erin, you heard him there. he sounds very positive about his momentum in the state now. at a minimum, i think he seems pleased with this experience even if for some reason things don't go his way this new hampshire. >> very confident with his momentum. very confident. very confident about his momentum. >> i think their internal polls are showing them doing better than our polls do. i think they think they're in second place, perhaps. i don't know -- >> they definitely do. >> i interviewed them on friday night and he was categorical. >> same thing. he's the happy warrior. you saw that all night tonight. kasich's appeal is that he's not criticizing anyone.
8:10 pm
people say that's because he wants to be vice president. he said i would be the worst vice president in history. i don't want to be that guy. >> he says in interviews, he goes no one knows who i am. when they get to know who i am, if i get a little name recognition i'll build on it. perhaps moments like he had tonight on immigration may help. let me play that. >> americans would support a plan like there. i think congress woud pass a plan to finish the boarder, pay a fine, a path to legalization and not citizenship. we have got to get this done. within the first 100 days that i am president, i will put that proposal to the congress and i will tell you as a former congressman and an executive in ohio, i can promise you i believe you'll get the votes to pass that and we can move on with that issue an protect our border. >> how effective was he?
8:11 pm
>> what does it yield in party that may not be in sync with him. there may be votes to finish well in new hampshire but where would he go after that. everything he says would play well with independent voters in a general election. the tenor of his campaign would play well but it doesn't seem to match the mood of the republican party. >> i wrote a book criticizing the republican party. having said that john kasich is trying to win by criticizing the republican party. it's the only hope the guy has. >> because of the independence they're able to vote. >> there's some people trying to make kasich happen.
8:12 pm
he extended medicaid under obama care. that's a no. nobody likes that. >> does anybody think john kasich, if he does come out of new hampshire really, really surge, does he have a future after that? >> he says, south carolina is not his natural terrain. michigan, you know, maybe. the south is not natural terrain. >> given the expectations game going into this, if he comes out ahead of rubio, number two, it will scramble the race. he will become the alternative. he's got a chance. a few weeks ago he was frustrated and angry. it was very uncomfortable to
8:13 pm
watch him. the trump thing just disturbed him. >> he is also the governor of ohio, which is a crucial state for the republican party. >> very successful governor. he's done well with african-american voters. >> what it will also do is prevent clarification. the establish m republicment re are eager to have candidates around whom everyone can rally. what it's going to create is kind of continued glut where certainly rubio will go forward. i don't know if ib else will. it's not going to be as neat as the establishment would like. >> if kasich beats rubio in new hampshire, it's worse for him than kasich in the end.
8:14 pm
>> what about jeb bush. you talk about coming out in a crowded establishment. what about jeb bush. is think any scenario where jeb bush is not in this race after new hampshire? >> i think he can do better. enough to survive and go on. >> people start looking lez of the polls and more at resources. somebody like jeb bush comes out and says i've got the resources to continue through. all those march 1 through march 15 contests on the calendar, john kasich will be forced to wake up wednesday morning and try to raise $10 million. does he have the ability to do that? that will be the first big test. i think david's right. this would prevent a consolidation of the establishment. >> if rubio comes ahead of the establishment lane then i think -- >> hold on one moment. we have donald trump in the spin room. >> we're live on cnn.
8:15 pm
you did not lob any attack at your opponents tonight. you were much more disciplined. are you trying to show that side the the voters? >> i was very happy with my performance. they're all saying i won the debate. i'm happy. i had to do well tonight. it was a lot of pressure tonight. >> why did you have to do well? >> i have a lead, i guess. if polls mean anything, i have a lead. i don't know that i had to be outstanding but they're saying i really did well. >> you got a bit burnth by the polls in iowa. >> i did. i got burned by the fact that ben carson lost another votes. if those votes didn't go over to another person, i would have won. >> in new hampshire does it feel like you have double digit points lead or does it feel
8:16 pm
close? >> i don't know. it's easier to poll new hampshire because you don't have the caucus system. it's very complex and very tricky. you saw that by what happened to ben. >> you said after iowa you guys could have done better with a stronger ground came? how confident are you that it's better? >> i think the debate tonight is more important than the ground game. in new hampshire the people they like you and they're going to go out and vote and go back. it's no so much of a ground game. i think it's good but i really think the debate tonight was more important than the ground game. >> are you surprised more of your rivals didn't go up against you. jeb is the only one that tried the take you on on stage? >> ted cruz, they said did you
8:17 pm
say that to his face. he didn't want to do that. i appreciated he didn't do that. jeb tried to go but jeb is easy. >> what was going through your mind when you saw marco rubio give the same response as chris christie was criticizing him as being too scripted. >> he was. . i think it's the exact opposite about president obama. it was a great debate. people really enjoyed the debate. it's getting high reviews. it's an honor for me to have been involved. >> do you look at marco as your closest competitor? >> i don't know. i look at them all. they're all very smart people. they're all good people. >> do you think that's something voters listening to that they care about? do you think that could affect you here? >> it's a very important thing for a country. you wouldn't have highways or schools or bridges.
8:18 pm
you wouldn't have airports or anything. when the government takes your property, they pay you a fortune for it. >> one ocht issues they put marco rubio on the spot was about his view on abortion. do you think that's too extreme of a stance in a republican ri ma primary? >> he said no exceptions. i do believe in the three. >> do you think it's too extreme? >> he said he doesn't believe in the exceptions and he said maybe he does. i'm not sure what his answer was because he answered it in two ways. he sort of indicated he believe in the exception. ronald reagan believed in
8:19 pm
pro-life. he was pro-life with the exceptions. >> in the wake of the loss in iowa, have you made any changes to your staff? >> it wasn't a loss. it was second. 17 people started. it's the first election i was ever involved in. i came in second and probably came in first. >> how do you probably come in first? >> take way the ben carson that you people sort of slipped up on. i'm not blaming cnn. cn thr nrks cnn. cnn did not report that ben carson was suspended. >> you take away those thousands of votes. one of the big shows on fox did a study and they said if that doesn't happen, trump probably wins. >> you think you would have won if the cruz campaign had not done that. >> four votes per precinct. i don't care about that anymore. i'm totally into something else. you know what it is, new hampshire. i hope you had a good time. >> does it look like sour grapes
8:20 pm
that you keep -- >> he wants to get past iowa. he wants to move onto new hampshire. he's being a little more careful in his expectations for st state but clearly a state he would like to win. >> making that very clear and a much calmer donald trump in that interview with sarah. he said i'm very good at real estate. >> i think he understand what is new hampshire wants and the kinder, gentler, donald trump. the donald trump -- >> water boarding. >> i was just going to say that. >> he said he would do much more than water boarding. >> and his argument with jeb. i think trump understands that he want to keep a lead. if you want to keep your lead, you just don't want to do anything that's going to upset people one way or another. >> we're take a brief break and when we come back we'll do fact check of one of the most

8:25 pm
voters telling them that ben carson dropped out the race saying cnn reported this. it was important to switch their votes from tben carson to ted cruz. take a look at what he said when questioned about that at tonight's debate. >> dr. carson, thank you. senator cruz you have said that dr. carson and his wiefe have become friends of yours. >> ben is a good and honorable candidate. when this transpired i apologized to him then and i do so now. ben, i'm sorry. let me tell you the facts of what occurred for those interested in knowing. on monday night about 6:30 p.m., cnn reported that ben was not going from iowa to new hampshire or south carolina.
8:26 pm
rather he was taking a break from campaigning. they reported that on television. cnn's political anchors said it was highly unusual and significant. at the time i was at the caucuses i was getting ready to speak. i called ben that evening. i didn't reach him that evening. i reached him the next day and apologized. cn thrks didn't correct that story until 9:15 that night.
8:27 pm
that's what cnn was reporting. >> senator cruz, thank you. >> in fact, the timeline indicates that initial tweet from cnn was followed by another one within one minute that clarified that i was not dropping out. what happened to that one, it's unclear. the bottom line is we can see what happened. everybody can see what happened. you can make your own judgment. >> dr. carson, thank you. >> all right. let's give you the facts. what senator cruz said is false.
8:28 pm
cnn never corrected the reporting because cnn never had anything to correct. the cruz campaign had nothing to do with cnn's reporting. the fact senator cruz continues to mislead the voters about this is astonishing. that's the statement out from cnn moments ago. tom, i've interviewed the co-chair. what cruz said is false. tell us exactly what happened. >> at no time did cnn say that ben carson was dropping out of this race. not online, not on air, not anywhere. for ted cruz to suggest that c nrn cnnn did -- cnn did was a flat out lie. this is what was reported. he tweeted ben carson will likely speak at his victory
8:29 pm
party in iowa before caucus results are in so he can catch a flight. then he added carson won't go to new hampshire, south carolina but will head home to florida for some r and r. he'll be in d.c. thursday for the national prayer breakfast. ben carson's campaign says he plans to stay in the race beyond iowa no matter what the results are tonight. all three of those tweets came out in less than two minutes before the caucuses even opened. 45 minutes later, moody hit it again by saying ben carson is just making a brief stop at home in florida tonight and campaign says he'll be back on the campaign trial by wednesday. our on air people came on and talked about this. they said it's an unusual move by ben carson or any presidential candidate to not go directly to new hampshire. in no way, shape or form did they say that ben carson was
8:30 pm
dropping out. executives had been over this campaign. the campaign has been called out for the dishonest handling of this. ted cruz stood on stage and suggested that somehow this is based on what ccnn did and all cnn did was report the facts. his claim is false. it was false from the get-go and it remains false. aside from that you can find out many of the other things we checked in tonight's debate goi bigoing -- by going to cnn.com/reality check. >> explain how this could have happened. why does he not say this is wro wrong? >> he did apologize.
8:31 pm
dr. carson accepted the apology. if i saw that cnn report that dr. carson was in the going to new hampshire or south carolina, i would have alerted the iowa caucus goers. when you tell caucus goers that, you can say those same words and a lot of people will infer he's dropping out. i think cruz is going above and beyond by saying i should have clarified. he could be bashing ben carson and saying you caused this mess. he's just trying to move on. the apology has been accepted. i think carson's campaign is struggling along. the facts will bear themselves out. >> he wanted to get carson's voters. he may not be bashing him on the debate stage but the campaign was saying this guy is not serious.
8:32 pm
sdplp there was an >> there was an e-mail that went out from the cruz campaign and it said tell your caucus goers to change their vote from carson to cruz. it was directly said. >> this is what i said. when i was watching in the green room, dr. carson is leaving iowa before the caucus is over to get change of clothes. that's a sign of abandonment. that's what i thought. i think it's likely what other people thought. >> i remember we were sitting in the room watching this at the exact same time and i got the exact same impression from the report. the report that ben carson was leaving the state and wasn't going to be coming back to the campaign trail, that was the type of thing. the other thing is in a campaign, the enormous pressure you're onto make sure your voters are as informed as possible, you don't think like a journalist when you're on a campaign. you think let's get this information out fast. they probably didn't put as much premium on whether it was correct.
8:33 pm
>> how dirty was it? >> well, i'm from chicago. i thoroughly agree with what was said. i think it's a signal of weakness. this contest. ted cruz stood on the platform as tom foreman said tonight and continued to suggest that cnn had reported. >> behind the scenes there's been bad blood between the carson campaign and the cruz campaign for a while. this is out in the open now. talking to people who are close to the carson campaign they very much want to stay in this race. they believe they can win this race, but they also think they
8:34 pm
might be a spoiler for cruz. if you look at iowa he got 9% of the vote. >> he did. >> he's trying to have it both ways. he's apologizing and saying he didn't do anything wrong. it's one or the other. if you didn't do anything wrong why are you apologizing. >> you put this in the context of the negative. look what happened to john mccain in south carolina not that long ago. the grand scheme of things this is a campaign being overzealous, aggressive. exactly what you want tocnn thi story. that's what i want my campaign to do if i'm running for president. >> why is he apologizing? he apologizing because he doesn't want the evangelical
8:35 pm
voters in south carolina and elsewhere to flake from carson or go to trump or rubio because they think he did something bad to their man. that's why he's apologizing. >> his christian values. if you think about the way carson has talked about this he's quoting scriptures when he had a press conference. >> disappointed. >> carson hasn't gone on the attack. it tells you a lot about carson as a candidate. carson hasn't said, he sort of at some press conference said somebody should be fired or something like that. he hasn't really gone after cruz for this and accused him of dirty tricks or anything like that. it's not carson's nature. >> trump has.
8:36 pm
>> we're going to take brief break. the rubio campaign will join us. we'll be back after this. at ally bank, no branches equals great rates. it's a fact. kind of like social media equals anti-social. hey guys, i want you to meet my fiancée, denise. hey. good to meet you dennis.
8:37 pm
because you can't beat zero heartburn! i take prilosec otc each morning for my frequent heartburn ahhh the sweet taste of victory! prilosec otc. one pill each morning. 24 hours. zero heartburn.

t...to help sense danger before7 was engiyou do. . because when you live to innovate, you innovate to live. the all-new audi q7. a higher form of intelligence has arrived. this is a special edition of
8:40 pm
out front. i want to go to the spin room. our sarah murphy is there with the communications director of the rubio campaign. what does he have to say about what a night this was for marco rubio? >> he's getting lot of attention because of that moment right near the beginning when he was going head to head against chris christie. he repeated himself a couple of times. how do you think voters should take that moment? >> chris christie gave him four opportunities to take barack obama. i think it's what republicans want. i can tell you how voters at home and viewers at home are responding. we raised over three times as much people going to marco rubio.com and donating to our campaign three times as much. people are responding in a positive way to marco's
8:41 pm
performance. >> it's about an audition to actually be president. part of being president is to think on your feet. what would you say to people who are second guessing whether he's equipped to do that. >> look at his bangick and fort about what he would do on isis. he explained it in depth. i think he proved that he understands the threats facing america in the 21st century better than any candidate on the stage. >> marco came out of this a bit bloo bloody. >> the governors are on the ropes. if they don't have a huge performance on tuesday night they will have to exit. they said they will have a big moment of their own. they didn't knock out marco and the big moments of the debate via the national security
8:42 pm
exchange, the life moment. >> he supports life of the mother. not for exceptions of rape or incest. it will be to the broader electorate. how does he sell that in place like new hampshire where there are a lot of independent voters who might not be in agreement with him. >> it's a human rights issue. he makes no apologies for being 100% pro-life. if congress sent him a bill that limited abortions accept in those instances, he would sign it because it saves lives. he does not support those exceptions. he explained why and it was the biggest moment of debate. >> is second place still good enough for you guys in new hampshire. >> our goal has to come in the to tier. i think it's the governors, there's a lot of candidates including the governor on the
8:43 pm
stage tonight who not only had a knock out of marco but they have to win or have to really exceed expectations on tuesday in order to continue their campaigns. i don't think that changed. >> thanks very much. we appreciate it. >> you heard there alex dependidependfendsing marco's debates. we'll see in a couple of days if the voters agree. >> our panel did not agree. you were on the side that the governors did well. >> you've heard a bit of the spin. >> right. alex is doing his job and he came into this spin room room.
8:44 pm
i remember going to the spin room. we should explain the spin room is the someplace where you try to persuade people they didn't see what they just saw. i tried to do that after the denver debate in 2012. he did the best that he could but who knows whether they raised three times as much. >> they'll tell us tomorrow. >> the verdict on social media, at least among the media was very harsh on him tonight, not just at this table. i think they know that and they sent him out there to put a bit of good news into the environment. >> let me play for everyone who is joining, a big part of the reason as to why people thought tonight was such a bad night for marco rubio. >> if politics becomes and the presidency becomes about electing the people who have been in congress or senate the longest, we should al rally around joe biden. he's been around a thousand years. he's passed hundreds of bills. i don't think any of us think joe biden should be president of the united states. let's dispel once and for all with this fiction that barack obama doesn't nope what he's
8:45 pm
doing. he knows exactly what he's doing. >> i like marco rubio. he's a smart person and a good guy. he does not have the experience to be president of the united states and make these decisions. we've watched it happen, everybody. for the last sempb yeaven years people of new hampshire are smart. >> i would ask this, let's dispel with this fiction that barack obama doesn't know what he's doing. he knows exactly what he's doing. your state got hit by a massive snowstorm. they had to shame you to go back. you stayed there for 36 hours and you left and came back to campaign. >> this notion that barack obama doesn't know what he's doing. there it is. the memorized 25 second speech. there it is. >> let me respond to that question. >> to the gang of eight bill. >> anyone that believes that barack obama isn't doing what he's doing on purpose doesn't
8:46 pm
understand what we're dealing with here. >> kevin, what happened there? there was the moment when chris christie goes there he goes again was funny. watching this happen was a little painful. i think a lot of people said what's happening. >> i'm a big proponent of message discipline in a debate. i think the problem is he took it a little bit too far. one of charges that so many people have had of him is he's scripted. i think that's sort of played into that criticism. i think another thing really happened here is really important. marco rubio because he has no momentum has this target on his back. everybody in this campaign is focused on him high pressure he has to show he can take a punch. he did take a punch early on and he recovered from it. the big question is tomorrow, the day after. does he continue the show he learned a lot from this -- from losing that moment and that he can get back on offense. >> he's been trying to show the whole point is he has the experience and the ability.
8:47 pm
he was rattled tonight. he went to that line because he might have lost his train of thought but that's the line he remembered and went to. >> he didn't look like a president tonight. he looked like someone preparing to be president some time in his life. you came out of it thinking i'm not sure he's ready. i'm not sure he has be poise and the understanding and the sense of who he is. more importantly, he's larger figure. that did not emerge tonight. he emerged as someone easily rattled and tightly wound. >> does this change the momentum. >> i think rubio is better on the attack. i don't know what this insul was the joe biden. he's been around a thousands years. it's sort of like a kid saying
8:48 pm
that. it didn't have the sort of stature that somebody might want to assume. >> we'll take one more break and come back with trump's closing statements from tonight's debate. you're not going to want to miss what he had to say. 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.

welcome back to our special coverage of the post-debate here on the special edition of out front. in the closing statement for donald trump he slammed ted cruz. listen in. >> i will always stand with the american people. >> mr. trump. >> that's because he got ben carson's votes, by the way. we won't say nothing. >> all right. a little barb there. you're chuckling a bit. let me ask you, what was the booing at. was the booing at donald trump?
8:53 pm
was the booing at what cruz did to carson? >> it was to donald trump. these audiences are not representative of the new hampshire electorate. we should not treat them as a focus group. rand paul was probably getting the most applause in any of the debates and he's not even here anymore. i think they are probably more antagonistic against donald trump. >> let's turn to my analyst. who was the booing at? >> i think he was smart to point out it was the donor class sitting out there and these are not his natural constituents. he was very clever. >> it's almost similar to what sanders is doing. he's powered by the people and trump is powered by himself. >> i think when you get booed, it doesn't help.
8:54 pm
for the general audience, you don't want to get booed. >> generally, these republican audiences don't like candidates going after each other. at the beginning when chris christie was roughing up rubio, he didn't get that kind of reaction. rubio did when he responded and attacked chris christie over the snowstorm. i'm trying to figure out why that is. >> why do you think that was? why is it that marco rubio got the boo but chris christie didn't? was there some latent desire to see marco get hit. >> definitely pro-snowstorm in new hampshire. i would say the fact that people can boo or applaud changes the dynamic so much. there's some debates where you weren't allowed to applaud. this changes the perception. there was something up with rubio tonight. it was almost like there was a paul cast -- a cloud that followed him around tonight.
8:55 pm
he looked pasty. it was not rubio's night. the crowd, i have no idea, but they were not on his side. >> i think he got bit of boos people like us we're groaning when he kept saying the same answer. as a speech writer the fact someone would say look forward the fact he kept returning to barack obama who is a lame duck president was disappointing to me. >> who do you think will come in first in new hampshire? >> i think right now you'd have to say trump. >> david. >> i think trump. big question is, who comes -- can anybody get close to him? >> margins matter. >> trump, i think so. what the margins going to be, who comes in second? does kasich have a surge? >> is this being taped? we've had a problem with forecasting trump this year. i think he should win.
8:56 pm
i think the clock will run out and he will win on tuesday. >> if he does not win then what? >> all bets are off. all bets are off. if he doesn't win, we're going to say who came in second. if it's rubio. >> i think you have a cruz, probably a cruz-rubio race. >> it will be exciting. >> it will be a very, very exciting thing. >> if trump wins narrowly, that's a big story. >> thank you for watching our special coverage. anthony bourdain is next. that'sd alka seltzer plus day night liquid gels. it's tough cold symptom fighters provide powerful relief. relief that helps you sleep at night and gets you back out there during the day.

>> let's start by being honest with ourselves. as a nation for decades we were perfectly happy to write off whole neighborhoods, whole cities, whole generations of young men and women. as long as it was an inner city problem, an urban problem, which is to say a black people problem, a brown people problem, send them to prison into a system from which they'll never return. maybe now,now that it's come home to roost and it's the high school quarterback, your next-door neighbor, your son, your daughter, now that grandma is as likely to be a junkie as anyone else, we'll accept there's never been a real war on drugs. war on drugs implies an us versus them and all over this part of america, people are learning there is no them. there is only us. and we're going to have to figure this out together. figure this out together. havi -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com
