well, i'll tell up, what i'll tell you you what, what do we really want to thank, right? we want to thank the people of new hampshire, right? do we love the people of new hampshire? [ cheers ] you know, i said it and i said it a year ago, i said i'm going to do really well there because i'm here a lot and it's so beautiful and i love it so much and i love the people and i said i actually think they like me a lot and then all of a sudden we started getting numbers in and everyone said how come they like trump so much but i have so many friends up here and they are special, special people. so, new hampshire, i want to thank you. we love you. we're going to be back a lot. we're not going to forget you. you started it. remember, you started it.
up kn you know, when i came out, i heard the end of bernie as speech and some of the beginning. no, no, first of all, we have to congratulate him. we may not like it. i heard part of beirne as speech. he wants to give away our country, folks. we're not going to let it happen. i don't know where it's going with bernie. we wish him a lot of luck. we're going to make america great again up we're going to did it the old fashioned way. we're going to beat china, japan, beat mexico at trade. we're going to beat all of these countries that are taking so much of our money away from us on a daly basis. it's not going to happen anymore beem have t . we have the greatest people in the world. we have political hacks negotiating our deals for
billions and billions and billions of dollars. not going to happen anymore. we're going to use the finest business people in the world. we are going to do something so good and so fast and so strong and the world is going to respect us again, believe me. we're going to -- do we love our country? do we love our country? i think one of the things that really caught on, it's very important, self-funding my campaign. everybody on both sides, and you know i was saying two weeks ago, i said i don't think people really appreciate it because i see all of this money being poured into commercials and it's not their money, it's special interest money. this is on both sides, the democrat side, the republican side. money just pouring into commercials. these are special interests,
folks. these are lobbyists. these are people that don't necessarily love our country, they don't have the best interests of our country at heart. we were not going to let it happen. we can't. we have to do something about it bhup s . when you see the kind of deals made in our country, they're made for their benefit. we have to stop it. for your benefit, we're going to make the deals for the american people. that's the way it is. [ cheers and applause ] i love these signs. they're the most imaginative signs. we're going to make great deals, we're going to rebuild our military. nobody -- nobody is going to
mess with us. believe me, nobody. we are going to take care of our vets! where is al? where is al? we love al! all right, al? get up here if you can. we're going to take care of our vets. our vets are treated horribly. they're our greatest people. our vets are going to be taken care of and you remember that, everybody. right? we're going to have strong, incredible borders and people are going to come into our country but they're going to come in legally. legally. we're going to build a wall. it's going to be built. it's not even believe it or not, it's not even a difficult thing to do. and, by the way, for the people of new hampshire where you have
a fleetremendous problem with hn and drugs, the first thing they mention please do something because there's so much of it, it's so cheap. we're going to end it. we're going to end it at the southern border. it's going to be over. and we're going to work really hard to get those people that are so addicted off the habit. we're going to work like hell to take care of the situation. it's a huge problem in new hampshire. it's a huge problem all over our country. we're going to have borders given and we're going to work with you people to help you solve that very big problem and we'll get it done.
[ crowd chanting ] >> that's so beautiful. what a group of people. and on top of this group, we have thousands of people outside that can't even get in. that's when we have, thousands of people. health care. we're going to repeal and replace obama care. it is a total disaster. we're repealing and replacing obama care. it's gone. we're getting rid of common core. we're going to education our children locally. we educate our children locally. we are going to preserve our very sacred second amendment. there's not going to be any more chipping away at our second amendment. if we had protection in california recently and so many other place, you could even look to paris. paris has the toughest gun laws in the world. france has the toughest gun laws
in the world. these animals go in, they start shooting, one, two, three, 130 people with many people horribly wounded, horribly wounded right now in the hospital. if there were bullets going in the other direction, believe me, it would have been a whole different story, folks. but nobody had protection. i am going to be the greatest jobs president that god ever created. remember that. don't believe those phony numbers when you hear 4.9 and 5% unemployment. the number's probably 28, 29, as high as 35. in fact, i even heard recently 42%. do you have think -- if we had
5% unemployment, do you really think weed have these gatherings? forgetting about security, forgetting about isis, which, by the way we're going to knock the hell out of isis. we're going to knock the hell out of them. and it's going to be done the right way. so we're going to take care of the economy. we're going to take care of jobs, we're going to take care of all of. things that i said, our border, health care. it's going to be so great. remember this about obama care. people are forgetting but now they're miserable because it's going up 45%, 35%, 55%. it's totally out of control. probably sinking of its own volition in 2017, unless the republicans give it another -- i mean, what's going on? what's going on? the budget. the last budget that was approved is an absolute disaster for everybody in this country. weep owe $19 trillion as of
today. weep just crossed the $19 trillion mark. we're going to very shortly be at $ 21 trillion because of the budget. we are going to make our country so strong. we are going to start winning again. as a country we don't win on trade, we don't win with the military, we can't beat isis. we doesnn't win with anything. we are going to start winning again and we're going to win so much, you are going to be so happy, we are going to make america so great again, maybe greater than ever before. i love you all. thank you new hampshire! thank you, thank you, new hampshire. thank you. we are going now to south carolina! we're going to win in south carolina. i love you all. thank you very much. thank you. thank you very much. >> let's listen in to governor john kasich, who now is in
second place in new hampshire. let's listen. >> well, first of all, my daughters are at home, emma and reese and we're all happy because they're not driving tomorrow. one how about my family. emma and reese and of course my great wife, karen kasich. [ cheers and applause ] and here in new hampshire, there's no way i would have gone forward with in campaign if it wasn't for the great senator john sununu. he's such a great partner. he's so smart and he's so disciplined and he's just a great, great ifriend of mine. we also want to thank senator
gordon humphrey. we were 1% in the national polls and people were hilike how can u ever win? we're walking in total obscurity up here and gordon humphrey sends moo ane an e-mail, this tt plate of the world, guys are in the campaign room eating their food off of hot plates, that's how you do it. and of course tom rath. 17 years ago i came here and, you know, i thought things were going okay, you know, wasn't getting a lot of attention.
was standing in the kitchen and was talking to this lied aady a thought i got this woman who really likes me. and about 15 minutes later she looked at her watch and said "when will the candidate get here? can you tell us?" but the guy who stayed with me, bruce. [ applause ] >> i just want to tem yll you, there's no way to say this appropriately. when the media kept saying how are you going do this? can you finish high? i said you know what, i have an insurance policy. it's you. it's all of you. how does a guy like me thank up
for the countless hours f, the phone calls, the door knocking. some of you have come from of course our buckeye state and some have come from virginia, maryland, new york, connecticut and today all the way from seattle and -- >> new haven! >> all right, new haven. and a guy flew in from london, england to did this. one, you know, there's something that's going on that i'm not sure that anybody can quite understand. there's magic in the air with this campaign because we don't see it as just another campaign. we see this as an opportunity for all of us. and i mean all of us, to be involved in something that's big are than our own lives, to change america. to reshine america.
to restore the spirit of america and to leave no onin behie ibeh. am i right? that's what we're all fighting for. [ crowd chanting ] you know, something big happened tonight. let me tell you what it is. we have had tens and tens of millions of dollars spent against us with negative advertising, okay? we have. see, that's the old politics. that's the old politics. we never went negative because we have more good to sell than to spend our time being critical of somebody else. [ cheers and applause ]
and maybe just maybe, at time when clearly change is in the air, maybe just maybe we're turning the page on the dark part of american politics because tonight the light overcame the darkness of negative campaigning. and you made it happen. you made it happen. you made it happen. you made it happen. now, you know we're conservatives here. we believe government is a last resort and not a first resort. as i like to talk about the strength of our country and if you think about the american
home, which is the family, we know that the family is only strong when the foundation is strong. and that's why we will wake up every single day to make sure every single american has a job in the united states of america to help their families and their neighbors. and when i'm president of the united states, first of all, you know, we're going to have a battering ram to knock down the walls of the city if they don't want to change. it's what i've done all of my lifetime but here's what we're going to tell people, i believe, and up think about it and i hope you agree. we're going to solve the problems in america not by being extreme, not by being first a republican or democrat but reminding everybody that we are
americans dedicating to shining up america and fixing our problems. fixing our problems. [ cheers and applause ] this campaign's changed me. the people of new hampshire, the wonderful people of new hampshire have changed me. i want to tell you how it happened. i don't know, you know, i don't know if it happened in the first 25 town halls or the second 25 or the third 25, but as we got closer and close ar to those hundred town hall, the 106 that we finally finished on, people for some reason were able to come to these town halls and feel safe. a man came the other day and he was crying at the end of the
town hall and put his arms around me and said, "my son's got cancer and i feel as though i didn't warn him." i said, sir, it's sad, it's a tragedy, it terrible. but it's not your fault. >> p he communicated to somebod and said that conversation lifted a weight off his sholds are. he came from new york to tell me his story. and some of you know the story of the woman who came down and cried and i hugged that woman. and a lady sitting in the back after we had gone through the mechanics of fighting drugs, she brought in the real flesh and
blood and she talked about her 31-year-old daughter, who had been 11 months sober. and i looked around the room and said can you imagine how hard it is to be a mom, who at one point just held that little baby in her arms, to have to wake up every day and ask the good lord and the good lord is listening, to have her daughter recover. now, when you are in settings like that, you begin to learn something. there are too many people in america who don't feel connected. they've got victories that no one celebrates with them, and they have defeats and pain sometimes that they have to absorb themselves. i'll tell what you i really think we need. we need this economic growth and the job creation, but at the heart and soul of the united
states america, the united states that i grew up in little mckees rock where my father brought the mail and stuck his nose in everybody's business and was there in triumph and was able to be on the step and cry with them when they lost somebody they loved. up s you see, that's the america i know where we slow down our lives. let's just leave this hall tonight and i would ask to you just reflect on this because you see, we're all made to change the world. we're all made to be a part of the healing of this world. and if we would just slow down. and, by the way, heal the divisions within our own families. be willing to listen to the person that lives next door when you're in such a hurry to get out of the driveway or such a hurry to get out of the shopping center. just slow down. look 'em in the eye, give 'em a
hug. you see, it doesn't take government. it takes our hearts, our hearts to change america. in this campaign i've become con vin -- convinced even more about what it takes to win a political campaign. it's not just what's up here in the heart, it's also what's here deep in the heart. the people of new hampshire have taught me a lesson and from this day forward i'm going to go slower and spend my time listening and helping and healing and bringing people together to fix our great country. [ cheers and applause ] thank you.
now -- [ cheers and applause ] [ crowd chanting "kasich" ] >> well, listen, folks, i know the networks want to go pu. you know, bernie talked so long, i thought he was going to hit his 77th birthday before he got off the stage. and, hillary, you just needed this much and head to south carolina because it's not working here. it's not working here, okay? and it's not going to work here for them next fall either because i'm coming back to new hampshire! [ cheers and applause ] how could any man be so lucky,
huh, who have all of you, to be so happy about life and family and the fact that the lord's blessed me. we are at the beginning of this campaign season. tonight we head to south carolina, and we will move through south carolina, all across this country, and we'll end up in the midwest and you just wait. let me tell you, there's so much that's going to happen. if you don't have a seat belt, go get one. we're going to shake this country from top to bottom. thank you very much and god bless you. >> second place finisher john kasich. you see him giving his speech after donald trump gave his speech. the battle for third place, cruz is in third place with 17,760, some 56% of the look in. lock at bush.
17,184. just a difference some little less than 600 votes, a very close race now for third place. as we've been listening now to these speeches, gloria, david? >> hillary clinton gave a speech looking forward to south carolina. it's as if she was out of the state. bernie sanders gave a rousing kind of stump speech that those of us who have been out to him -- >> sort of introducing himself to a population -- >> when your crowd is finishing your lines, it's a sign maybe you have to freshen the speech. >> and john kasich gave a personal, heart-felt speech about new hampshire and when those people meant to him. van and i were talking and van said it was sort of spiritual to
a degree and he was introducing himself as well, don't you think, to the american public who has no idea -- >> the question is does john kasich have a path forward through south carolina? >> that is the question. he's been pursuing his own track in this. you watch the debate, it's almost as if he's talking to a different crowd than anybody else. he's almost running a general election campaign in a primary. that works in a state like new hampshire. the question is when you go south on march 1st and before that in south carolina, can he find a market for this message within the republican party as it's constituted today? i don't know the answer. >> i wouldn't count him out in south carolina. i think his midwestern, folksy way will play pretty well down there. it's a southern swagger. >> the question is more about money and organization.
>> last i checked he has about a million dollars. he'll have more after this and he trained his attention, as you said, to the general election campaign as well. i thought it's clear he has gotten better as a candidate and those 99 town halls have helped. i think trump has gotten better as a candidate. he talked about heroin. not only in new hampshire but it's ravaging white working class america. the "national review" has been writing about this for months and months and months. >> the contrast between donald trump and john kasich. i began my morning with governor kasich on my radio program in a tin y diner. he making the pitch that it's time to slow down and help your neighbor. he were's the issue. will practicality set in for the republican party is this because
this electorate mirrors the national electorate in terms of the number of independents who hold the cards to a general election. and kasich gave the republican party tonight an indication of how he could win in a general if they're wise enough to advance his candidacy. >> here's the problem for republicans with john kasich. he took president obama's medicaid money as part of obama care. he doesn't believe in deporting illegal immigrants and he also leaves the door open to a pathway to citizenship. >> and common core. >> for illegal immigrants. and ho has supported common core. so the question is where does he have his support in the republican party is this the kasich campaign says, okay, we've got support in michigan, we'll have support in ohio, we'll have support in florida if you get rid of jeb and rubio. >> the question is can they get there. >> that's right. and even just tonally was very
chicken soup for the soul. slow down, hug your name. that's great, i loved that. one where the party's at right now is a lot more art of the deal, right? i don't know that he can cult through and sell republicans. in south carolina or nevada on chicken soup for the soul bhap did find having interesting out of trump was winning looks good on dpt. he thanked his family, familiar lip members we've never heard of before. each thanked the voters meech remembered to thank the voters. he thanked the other candidates and congratulated the other candidates. he didn't call anyone a name. it was a very -- i thought a very good look for donald trump. you know, i'm not his target. if i were to give him or his campaign any advice, more of that. >> which does argue to jeffrey something trump had said all along is that he would change
his tone and dae meanor as events warrant and if he makes it to the white house. >> campaigns are tough. i'm looking over there at david, who is in a very tough campaign against hillary clinton and wound up as secretary of state. this is what candidate does and if you don't do it, you will lose. he's turned out here to be the toughest of the tough, but have you to turn around and pivot and make nice with all these folks and he's on his way to do it. >> i was happy that kasich wound up where he did for one reason. work. each put the work in. and there's something very, very wrong with america if somebody can literally go, pend spend month after month and -- i also think also that spiritual message about us take caring of each other, it may be too
chicken soup for the sole for some people bum it's a welcome message. there's a lot of pain out there, a lot of hurt out there. i can't be high ball to eyeball with the hurt without being changed. the person we haven't talked about is marco rubio. the only question a few days ago before that debate was is he going to clear the field of all the other establishment candidates or will he clear the bar and get ahead of trum? suddenly the question is was he going to stall or snal he's fell. he's fifth. i think that chris christie is going to go down in history as somebody who made one of those history defining debate moments people will study for a long time saying what about me? i put this all the work. >> it says on another network, he introduced him in the past
tense. >> you're certainly seeing on the republican side more of these quote, unquote -- i want to go back to my earlier critique. three quick points on senator sanders' speech. he was gracious, we've heard many of thieves things before. one, it is now absolutely clear that senator sanders is literally running against the record of barack obama. secondly, almost every time i've heard him talk about african-americans and latinos, it's been with regard to either jail or criminal justice. i find that slightly offensive. >> and, third, he identifies 99 problems but we rarely hear
solutions or the details that go with it. we heard tonight this tax on wall street speculation. very interesting idea. like to hear more details about those things pip think as time goes on, we have to get into the details of what it means to be an executive. >> van, i sao you shaking your head. >> i didn't hear him save one negative word about president obama at all. >> talking about the status quo. >> where ep we are is not president obama but the obstruction of the -- it doesn't make any sense to me. >> all i'm saying is he says the president is less progressive -- it's a constant theme. >> what you're going to see now is the establishment say that any critique of america, any critique of hillary clinton is a critique of president obama. you can love president obama. >> what i was going to say is i
don't think he talks about so b 98 things. the question is, is it a broad enough message to ultimately win the day? >> it's about three things. >> we'll go to jake tapper and continue this conversation in a moment. >> thanks, anderson. so many stories coming out of new hampshire thank. one of them of course being marco rubio's surprisingly unimpressive showing. we heard a surprising admission from him just a few minutes ago speaking to his supporters. let's play that. >> many people disappointed. i'm disappointed with tonight. but i want to you understand something irk want you to understand something. our disappointment tonight is not on you. it's on me. it's on me. i did not -- i did not do well on saturday night so listen to this, that will never happen again!
[ cheers and applause ] that will never happen again. >> very interesting, dana bash, blaming his bad results to his bad debate performance. saying it will not happen again. >> it was the punch, counterpunch and punch again by chris christie. i saw marco rubio at one of the polling places earlier today and he was talking to a voter who was undecided before going in. she asked her issue, which for her was about cancer research because her husband has cancer and after he left she told me, you know, i actually found him
to be much more engaging at a town hall where she said who got a headache where heshe said he repeated himself and sounded robotic. so she went into the voting booth and came out and i said did he get your vote? and she said no. so a lot of voters were taking a second, third, fourth look at him after he did so well in iowa were really turned off just like that. >> what was important to the voters in new hampshire were victories, big, surprisingly huge victories for donald trump and bernie sanders.
>>. >> it was a surprising admission, as you guys said. it was disappointing to republicans in washington. i spoke to two senior republican official who hoped that new hampshire would almost narrow the republican field and a party would able to quickly coalesce behind an alternative to donald trump and that alternative being marco rubio. we saw a wave of support come his way after iowa. but what the real fear is now in republican circles is this fight for are the establishment lane, the fight to be the donald trump alternative is going to last weeks and weeks and weeks. what did this mean for the bush and rubio campaigns going forward?
they don't believe -- neither of them believe that john kasich present as serious threat in south carolina given that the electorate there is much more conservative than john kasich, who ran as a much more moderate candidate. both of them see each other as their biggest threat going forward. expect the race between bush and rubio to get much more intense in the come beiing weeks and wh that does for the fight against donald trump really throws that in disarray, jake. >> you seldom see a politician come out and say it's all on me, blame it on a specific event and promise it wasn't happen again. >> it is. one thing to look for going forward and talking to kasich aides, they say they are going to fight very hard to beat jeb bush. i think that could also help
marco rubio. because if jeb bush is damaged in south carolina, if the kasich folks are successful, that could only help marco rubio get back on his feet in a place where he is campaigning, has been campaigning a lot and does tend to gravitate towards candidates like marco rubio, who is good on defense, he's more mainstream and moderate and historically that's how south carolina has gone. >> sometimes when you attack somebody in one of these situations, you are might hurt that other candidate but you don't help yourself. that seemed to be what happened with chris christie, who so devastatingly took down marco rubio at the debate saturday night but is facing a disappointing sixth place finish. phil mattingly is in nashua at -- i believe nashua at christie campaign headquarters. not a good night for the government of new jersey.
>> not at all. he said he was cancelling his scheduled events in south carolina. he said he would be going home to new jersey and he and his wife and his kids would discuss what would happen next. coming in at least fifth place was the requirement to qualify in south carolina. it was a shift in metrics. he needed to become the top governor. you spoke to him today, jake, and he reiterated it was not just that anymore. the debate where he really stunned marco rubio and slapped him around a little bit had shifted the race entirely, they felt good about his internals but because the race had become so muddled in the wake of that debate, he just needed to finish in that top five to move forward. obvious lip he missed that today. they will take a break, go home, talk about it. here are some of the things they have to consider.
i've been speaking to a number of christie donors over the last two hours, a number of them here in new hampshire had a private dinner about an hour and a half ago as they were increasingly on edge as they watched the returns come in. the big problem is they don't have the money to move forward right now, jake. a lot to weight but a lot of questions about whether he can go on, jake. >> all right, phil mattingly at christie campaign headquarters. they're taking a deep breath over there. no decisions about whether governor christie will leave the race. but they have to take stock. >> that was great reporting that there was a dinner that the christie donors were having, probably having trouble dige digesting watching the numbers. they were from everything i've heard out of money. you don't get people to take a second look at you when you do so poorly. i really think when he made that
move against marco rubio in the debate to really go at him, it was sort of a kamikaze mission, don't you think? maybe that wasn't the intention that it happened. >> the lesson always is that you have might hurt that person with you you might also hurt yourself. when we come back, i'm going to interview the republican prime rich winner, donald trump. we'll talk to him right after this very quick break. see see me. don't stare at me. see me. see me. see me to know that psoriasis is just something that i have. i'm not contagious. see me to know that i won't stop.

trump with a very impressive win. he comes in first over john kasich. he's got 34%. he wins now with at least 67% of the vote in, almost 34,000 votes. another very impressive win for donald trump tonight. but look at this fight tore third place right now between ted cruz at 12%, jeb bush at 11%, marco rubio at 10%. this fight for third ongoing, just a few hundred votes separating ted cruz and jeb bush. right now marco rubio not doing so well and chris christie coming in at least as of right now in sixth place, very disappointing for him as well. now, jake tapper spoke to the winner of the republican primary, donald trump. jake? >> thanks, guys. i'm joined on the phone by the winner of the new hampshire republican prime, one mr. donald j. trump. mr. trump, gralcongratulations
your victory. did you ever think this was going to happen? >> thank you, it's been a wonderful evening. i thought it might. it was right across the board with men, women, with young, with old and to win every single category was perhaps the greatest honor of all. >> and it looks like the voting results are still coming in but it looks like this is the biggest victory in a republican primary since george w. bush lost to john mccain in new hampshire 16 years ago. house of representativ how does it feel? >> i didn't know that number. it's a long time. it's a great feeling to know it's been that big of a victory. it's a lot of years. i will tell you, it's just an honor to have won. i told you if i win by one vote, it makes me happy but that makes me even happier. i'll say that, jake. >> it's been a bit more than one vote. if you look at the exit polls, you'll see votes are were
looking at the outsider, they're mad at the republican establishment. what do you think in particular about your message resonated with the voters of new hampshire? >> well, i think it started trade and the fact that we're being just ripped off by everybody, whether it's china, japan, mexico. and i think it ended up being very much borders and security and other things having to do with security. and then you have the migration and you have isis and all of a sudden it morphed into that and i think because of the fact that i done so well with the border and done so well with the wall, which will be built, i think what happened is that people started saying i would also be the best with respect to isis and some of the outer problems that we have. so it seems that the whole security thing, the military thing, the fact that i'm going to take care of the vets far better than anybody else will be able to, it all sort of came down to that. but it seems like pretty much of a victory in every category.
of course, the easiest thing for me is going to be trade and jobs because that's really what i do. >> in terms of how much you won in new hampshire, did you pay more attention -- did your campaign pay more attention to the ground game, to getting your voters to the poll, making sure they were motivated as opposed to big, big rallies? >> well, i think the ground game was really strong. we really focused on it after iowa. the ground game was not something i was extremely familiar with but i learned quickly. i learned very well and we have a very good ground game and, you know, the people of new hampshire are amazing people. and now i've going to south carolina and i think we're going to have tremendous success there. we were just there and i had 12,000 people in a wonderful, wonderful arena. and to be honest with you, the ground game was very important to me and i think we learned about ground games very quickly.
>> as you may know, south carolina, they like their politics a little bit more would you and tumble. ru are you ready what may come your way, the negative attacks and perhaps dirty tricks that may come your way? >> we've already had dirty tricks in this campaign. i'm ready for whatever they'll throw at me and that's fine. i want to congratulate everybody that has run. tomorrow i'll be around 12:00 or 1:00 tomorrow getting ready nap should be interesting. i love south carolina. the people -- i've been there many, many times and. people were tremendous people and i think i can do very well there. >> there's a big competition obviously for second place and third place in new hampshire right now. who do you think is your competition going forward? is it ted cruz? do you see some rejuvenation for
jeb bush and john kasich? who are you focused on? >> i see them all, jake. i really see them all. i think they're all good competitors and talented people and right now it looks like kasich has a little bit of a lead. but the other way i'm just looking at your chart. yup, it's getting a little bit closer. it's going to be a close race, i think puch sort of predicted that and so did cnn and the whole group. looks like it's going to be a pretty close race to second. >> lastly, you've been campaigning more with your family, your wife, your boys, don and eric. house of representatives are they ta -- how are they taking the news? this is a big night in trump history. >> well, they're all with me now. corey has done a great job, he just walked in now so i will comment on his ground game,
which was excellent. it's been an amazing time. it's simple, we're going to make america great again. >> gralcongratulations on a ver very strong win in new hampshire. best of luck. >> thanks very much. take care. >> all along you're one of the few people who picked on donald trump all along and sailed he can go all the way mop do you see as his biggest competition? he says he's looking at all of them. >> i think it is all of them at the moment. they've got to sort themselves out. i was having a conversation with our friend michael smerconish over there, egos, these guys all have big egos. and who is going to push who out? they're all going to be saying you leave, no, no, u leave. that's going to be the problem. >> you'd think after iowa, a lot
of people thinking this is a three-man race, rubio, cruz and donald trump. but now you have kasich as well. >> that's funny, you just referenced cruz. we haven't said a word about cruz tonight. he won the iowa caucus and yet tonight shehe is a total non non-entity. >> he's going to be well satisfied. >> cruz played this like a master. cruz knew the most important thing that could happen to him is nothing. don't get beat up, wait this out and go to south carolina and start putting people in body bags. >> and rubio getting pummelled.
-- >> but when rubio finished third, as cruz is fond of saying, he got the bronze and you treated it like a gold medal. tonight cruz is third and we're not treating it like a bronze medal and rubio is fifth and we're saying -- >> cruz basically just showed up for the medal ceremony and left with the bronze. he hasn't even spent much time in new hampshire -- >> rubio has money. he's got win somewhere. he's got to do well somewhere. >> rubio's in trouble. rubio's in trouble. >> he hasn't really put in the work. his theory was i do well in third, turn it into kind of a win and then first and then if i win, then the infrastructure and sort of the work would come in mee. he thought he could run a debate
campaign -- >> rubio has been calling himself as the candidate that can win. among republicans who prioritized a candidate who can win, that was rubio. >> and in new hampshire, that was 14%. >> that the not a lot but he's winning that lane. he knows if more people run out, trump and cruz, the anger candidates, there's going to be room for a moderate candidate -- >> i can appeal to all the factions of the republican party and he's tried to did that. he's tried to ride all throw horses at once, the social conservatives, the tea party and the establishment. i think that's a hard straddle to pull off. i think you may end up having warm feelings among -- >> if christie is taking a breather and, again, we don't want to be misquoted here, that's all he said, he's just
taking a breather, we don't know what it means further than that butch you' , but you're going to have jeb bush continuing to hit rubio hard. >> part of jeb's argument is he is partly electable because he can take on donald trump, right? he's. one that he was been going after donald trump most aggressively and throughout this that's the final contest in some ways. >> bush's goal tonight was to beat marco rubio. so far it really close and we don't know but so far it seems to be working out, even though it might only be by a percentage or so. but this keeps bush very much in the running. >> this is a true moment in -- not just in political, an in your life, when you make a mistake like that in public for the whole world to see, i was proud that he stood up and said, listen, it's on me. he didn't start blaming, oh, somebody stole.
votes. he said it's on me. i thought that showed a lot of character. >> we have to take a quick break. a lot more as more results are coming in. we'll be right back. see see me. don't stare at me. see me. see me. see me to know that psoriasis is just something that i have. i'm not contagious. see me to know that i won't stop. until i find what works. discover cosentyx, a different kind of medicine for moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. proven to help the majority of people find clear or almost clear skin. 8 out of 10 people saw 75% skin clearance at 3 months. while the majority saw 90% clearance. do not use if you are allergic to cosentyx. before starting, you should be tested for tuberculosis.

on the republican side, first of all, donald trump, a huge win for him tonight. take a look at the votes. he had 35%. he's almost 37,000 votes ahead of the second place finisher john kasich, the ohio governor, with 16%, ted cruz at 12%, jeb bush at 11%, marco rubio 10th, chris christie finishing a very, very sad sixth right there. he's gone back to new jersey to
rethink what's going on, take a little bit of breather, discuss with his family. only a little while ago in his victory speech, donald trump said this: >> we are going to make our country so strong. we are going to start winning again. we don't win anymore. as a country, we don't win on trade, we don't win with the military, we can't beat isis. we don't win with anything. we are going to start winning again and we're going to win so much, you are going to be so happy, we are going to make america so great again, maybe greater than ever before. i love you all. thank you, thank you, new hampshire. thank you. we are going now to south carolina! we're going to win in south carolina. i love you all. thank you very much. thank you. >> very impressive win by donald trump on the democratic
