3:00 am
tuesday, march 8th. 6:00 in the east. it is super tuesday again, but this one is all its own. this is a big, big deal leading up to the next super tuesday. it's not a joke. here's why. on the republican side, voters are heading to the polls in four different states. 150 delegates up for grabs. michigan, mississippi, idaho, along with caucuses in hawaii. donald trump's rivals are betting everything that their regional appeal will slow the billionaire's path to the nomination. this as all eyes are on rubio and kasich. can they win their battleground home states next week? >> so for the democrats, michigan and mississippi, in play today with 188 delegates at stake. hillary clinton now almost at the halfway mark to the delegates she needs. phil mattingly is live in detroit on the republican side
3:01 am
of the race. hi, phil. >> reporter: good morning, alisyn. it's the tuesday before the tuesday, obviously. at least one of four candidates looking towards next week. the crucial states, ohio and florida most notably. who has momentum going into those do or die states? >> nascar endorsed trump. can you believe that? >> reporter: donald trump running strong as voters head to the polls today for what's being dubbed super tuesday 2. >> i have been to michigan a lot i think we are going to do well there. stkpwhrr about 150 crucial delegates at stake, marco rubio and ted cruz hustle to take votes away from trump. a front-runner sparring with protesters in north carolina. >> oh, we have a protester. out, out. bye. go home to mommy. go home to mommy. tell her to tuck you in bed.
3:02 am
bye-bye. >> reporter: cruz making quick and previously unannounced stops in mississippi. >> they had been supporting donald trump who are realizing he isn't who they thought it was. >> reporter: and another state voting today, michigan. >> this is effectively a rally in the middle of the night. how is that? >> reporter: florida senator marco rubio shifting his focus to his hem state. >> it always comes down to florida. >> reporter: a new poll showing rubio down eight points as he continues making the case that he is the best trump alternative. >> i'm the only one with any chance of beating donald trump in florida. if you don't want donald trump to be the republican nominee, you have to vote for marco rubio. >> reporter: and ohio governor john kasich ramping up his efforts in his home state next week. >> we're going to get momentum out of michigan. we're going to win ohio. there will be a campaign all across the country.
3:03 am
it's going to be exciting. >> reporter: and underscoring the importance of the next several days. cnn confirmed that mitt romney recorded a robocall for senator marco rubio in florida. the crux of the call not so much an endorsement. more the endorsement of stopping donald trump. coming less than a week after mitt romney's scathing remarks about donald trump. this isn't just about marco rubio. mitt romney is willing to do this for ted cruz and john kasich as well. next tuesday, they either have to win or possibly go home, michaela. >> interesting tactic on the part of romney. we turn now to the democrats. bernie sanders and hillary clinton looking for votes in michigan and mississippi. our senior political correspondent brianna keilar is
3:04 am
live in miami with more. >> reporter: big stakes today for democrats in michigan and mississippi, especially michigan, which is rather delegate rich. and the race is pretty close between bernie sanders and hillary clinton. polls show clinton ahead. i'm hearing from both camps they think this is tighter than we have seen in the polls. we just saw bernie sanders last night at a fox news town hall cleaning up an answer he gave during the cnn debate taking about racial blind spots. if you're white, you don't understand what it is like living in a ghetto. >> in african-american communities you have people living in desperation, often being abused by white police officers. that is a bad thing. that's got to change. i'm fighting to reform a broken criminal justice system. i know about white poverty.
3:05 am
it exists in my state is and all across the country. >> many jumped on him for suggesting that only black people live in ghettos. hillary clinton plagued again by her e-mail controversy. more than 2,000 e-mails she sent on her private server now classified. 22 of them top secret. she did blame overclassification in part for that. here's what she said. >> others might say that wasn't at the time but now with circumstance we don't want to release it. so therefore we have to classify it. i've asked, and i echo colin powell on this, release it. once the american people see it they will know how absurd this is. >> and alisyn and chris, i know you're thinking, why are you in miami covering the michigan primary, mississippi primary? this is where both candidates will be pivoting. bernie sanders will come to miami tonight, really pushing toward the next series of
3:06 am
contests, even as he waits for the returns. we have the univision event simulcast on cnn. so we will have both candidates understanding tough questions tomorrow. >> we were thinking brilliant boondoggle. cnn political analyst and editor at the atlantic, brownstein, jackie kucinich and mark preston. ron, i want to get your take. i know you are paying close attention to michigan because you think it is telling of where the electorate is. just pull up the polls. this is a snapshot where the republicans are right now. trump gets 36.
3:07 am
cruz 23. kasich said he will do very well gets 21. rubio, 13. ron, why are you so focused on michigan? >> michigan, first of all, was one of the trio of states, michigan, illinois, ohio, that ended the race. it will tell us, alisyn, whether ted cruz can do what he needs to do, expand behind the aoe van g gel is cal voters he has been relying on. in all of these states, evangelicals are a big part of the population but probably not big enough to win on their own. ted cruz and john kasich have been is narrow casting on their own. whether any of them can get big enough to truly challenge trump, who seems to have hit a wall. he is a front-runner. the question is whether any of
3:08 am
the other candidates can take advantage. >> mark preston, let's take a look at the latest numbers about what may happen in florida. what are you hearing about this push to have marco rubio step out not as a position of weakness but one of strength. a sacrifice for the party. to set him up for the future. looking like a guy who gave it all early for the party. >> well, look, i think there is probably some concern amongst backers that marco rubio hasn't taken off like they hoped he would. he is going to be the establishment candidate. look, marco rubio won in florida, if you recall, back in 2010. he ran against a popular governor charlie crist. he came out of nowhere. he does the math in a way no one else can. there is something to be said about marco rubio being able to
tv-commercial
3:09 am
win his state. the biggest problem for marco rubio in florida, though, is up along the panhandle, on the georgia/alabama border. it is voters that aren't rubio.arily connected to marco we talk about cubans, and the carta right in the middle of the state. he needs to do well in jacksonville, across tallahassee or stun any inroads they can make. >> 10%. especially with the margin of error. it could be five or six. the closest we have seen it. >> jackie, let's talk about donald trump. there is still a concerted effort to try to go after him basically. there is a new conservative super pac ad that highlights some of his more colorful language. >> i went to an ivy league
3:10 am
school. i'm very highly educated. i know words. i have the best words. >> [ bleep ]. >> he gets the nomination they're going to sue his low pressure low pressure. i don't give a [ bleep ]. they are ripping the [ bleep ]. [ bleep ]. what the hell are we doing? you're not going to [ bleep ]. >> i have the best words. >> and you can tell them go [ bleep ] themselves. >> so, jackie, it is entertaining. do you think that -- voters know he uses colorful language. why is the pac going in that direction? >> i think if you see that on your tv over and over again, maybe it will start moving the needle with some people who haven't been paying attention, which is hard for us to believe but they are out there. folks are saying they are seeing the needle start to move on trump. the question, though, is this all too little too late at this
3:11 am
point? are these numbers at 30? they're not going to move. the question is, someone else can accumulate more than him at this point. we just don't know if this movement is actually going to pay dividends. >> well, here's the nice thing of watching "new day". we can answer this question. we have ron brownstein on this panel been looking closely at the trump ceiling. now you say you are seeing the suggestion. the moving of the needle. slowly of the trend. what is is that theory about this -- not attrition but settling? >> right. you have this precarious balance in the republican race to allow it to limp along for a long time. donald trump has won only one-third total votes cast. super tuesday, he only got 40% twice. and normally, kind of a traditional canned -- and mark and i have talked about. traditional candidates won
3:12 am
arkansas, massachusetts, vermont and alabama. you would see voters and elected officials coalescing behind him. that's not happening. he is not moving out of second gear. he's staying where he is. bigger than anybody else. but not big enough to put it away. the problem is you have kasich and cruz, who who are narrow casting. kasich is moderate and cruz is fading. not get to go a fight where he decisively puts it away and you just have the math question. >> mark, quickly, donald trump is still far and away the front-runner. as you know, all sorts of establishment republicans have tried to put a which i think in his armor. now there is a new get out the vote call that mitt romney
3:13 am
reported for marco rubio. we have just gotten a hold of it. listen to this. >> hello. this is mitt romney. and i'm calling on behalf of marco rubio for president. i believe these are critical times that demand a serious thoughtful commander in chief. if we republicans were to choose donald trump as our nominee, i believe the prospects for a safe and prosperous future would be greatly diminished. and i'm convinced donald trump would lose to hillary clinton. >> mark, does this mean mitt romney is supporting marco rubio? >> yes. and no. he is supporting marco rubio, john kasich and ted cruz and quite frankly, alisyn camerota and chris cuomo if they decide to get in the race. he is trying to stunt any momentum for donald trump. i spoke to a romney person early
3:14 am
this morning if you can imagine that, in the wee hours. the spokesperson told me governor romney is happy to help senator rubio, senator cruz or governor kasich any way he can. he clearly believes donald trump is not the best person to represent the republican party and it is not someone he can support that being donald trump for the republican nomination. where this could help, and the "new york times" broke this story overnight. they were very smart in saying this. this could help marco rubio in the state of michigan or idaho where there are a lot of lds members, mormons and mitt romney is a mormon. >> thank you very much. if called upon, chris and i would serve. panel, stick around. we do want to talk about the democratic side coming up. stay with cnn for the most comprehensive political coverage. results from today's super
3:15 am
tuesday 2 contest at 7:00 p.m. back-to-back debates tomorrow night on cnn. we will simulcast the univision debate. and thursday, gop debate. "new day" will be live from florida tomorrow and the rest of the week. >> breaking news. nine people have been injured after a packed commuter train jumps the tracks and plunges into a creek in the san francisco area. it apparently stuck a tree that had fallen in the middle of the tracks. live from san francisco with breaking details. i think it's amazing nobody was killed. >> reporter: yeah. good morning, michaela. this was quite a scare. you had bad weather move in, which led to this tree falling on the tracks, which is what led to the derailment. breaking overnight, a harrowing
3:16 am
scene. a packed train 45 miles east of san francisco sending a train car full of passengers flunging into a swollen creek. >> i realized something was wrong. i held onto the rails. right then the train flipped over. >> i was thrown out of my seat. >> reporter: all 214 miraculously managing to make it off the train alive. officials saying nine injuries, four critically, but not life threatening. >> absolutely chaotic. you can only imagine the terror and the angst that went through their mind. very fortunate nobody was killed. >> reporter: rescue crews fighting the creek's fast currents through the night to pull riders to safety. >> it's scary. it's still scary. but, you know, somebody was watching over us tonight. everybody got out. and everybody is going to
3:17 am
hopefully be okay. >> reporter: well, ntsb has a team headed to the region. obviously there will be no service along that route >> in news, the pentagon confirming usair strikes killed 150 fighters of al shabaab, calling them an imminent threat. barbara starr live with the latest. that's the word? >> good morning, chris. this may have been one of the deadliest air strikes by the u.s. in years. drones and fighter jets striking this al shabaab camp 120 miles north of mowing dee shoe. the pentagon claims it was an imminent threat. josh earnest talking about it. >> their removal, removal of those terrorist fighters, degrades the group's objectives in somalia.
3:18 am
>> now, this camp had been under surveillance by special operations for several weeks. the al shabaab group growing concern to the u.s. they are said on to be responsible in recent weeks for bringing down an airliner. and just yesterday another explosion at an tphaeurairport. a lot of concern they are moving along the borders. former first lady nancy reagan will be laid to rest. starting tomorrow, she will be lying in repose at the ronald reagan library for the public to say their good-byes. first lady michelle obama will attend the funeral. she diamond sunday from congest active heart failure. she was 94 years old. >> hillary clinton and bernie sanders are facing off until michigan and mississippi. hoping an insurmountable lead. we'll discuss the democratic race next.

3:22 am
okay. voters less than an hour from heading to the polls in the delegate rich state of michigan
3:23 am
and mississippi as well. let's take a look at a new poll from monmouth showing hillary clinton leading bernie sanders. this is not new in this state. but there is a couple of new dynamics. jackie, ron, mark. ron, we'll start with you. she has been up in michigan. let's start this way. everyone wants to figure out if she gets to the halfway point. it's a big deal. how big a teal is it that she goes into the halfway point before getting to the winner take all? >> i think michigan is very revealing of ahead. the core dynamic has been bernie sanders has not been able to win by a large enough margin to overcome hillary clinton's advantage over african-american voters. she has 78% in every state except oklahoma and there she was 71%.
3:24 am
they can do better when they get on on it of the south into the midwest. michigan looks like the other states that will follow all coming on march 15th. if sanders can't vertebrae through in michigan it is hard to see him breaking through in other states. even though he has shown, it's not known if she will win 4-1. >> one of the achilles heels has been whether or not she's honest and trustworthy. it was posed to bernie sanders whether or not he believes she is honest and trustworthy. he did not exactly take the bait. listen to this moment. >> i will let the people of the united states --
3:25 am
>> also a trump supporter. >> jackie, what do you think of that tactic, a few times on the campaign trail he doesn't take the softball. it is robbed in order to take the hard road. >> he has been focused on keeping his policy discussion when it comes to hillary clinton. we saw this very early. he said no one cares about your e-mails. we actually saw it in the debate the other night. he was very critical of her. it did get a little chippy. it didn't get into that space where it got personal, where it became about this e-mail scandal, which republicans have really seized on. that said, hillary clinton is going to have to continue to answer into the general if bernie sanders falls to the way side. >> both immediately ran away from this bernie's tone in the debate line. that's bernie being bernie. he wasn't trying to be men then. whether or not it's going to be a good enough tragedy remains to
3:26 am
be seen. preston, this fox town hall, it was interesting they didn't have more ammo. the e-mails, the trustworthiness. it went right by like it would have been anywhere else, let alo alone fox. what do you think the significance is? >> hillary clinton has been criticized over and over again for not appearing on fox. they do get a lot of viewers. they tend to get the republican viewers, no doubt about that. but in many ways this question about hillary clinton and her honesty and her e-mails and what have you have been answered over and over and over again. if you do not have the rival, if you do not have bernie sanders out there demanding over and over again that she release the e-mails or continue to beat the drum on the terrorists she gave, it is hard for a journalist to
3:27 am
continue to do so. as you know, this is a very competitive business. i'm sure fox in some ways wanted to put out an olive branch to try to come on a little more. >> what did bernie sanders need to stay viable? >> he has to prove he can compete among african-american voters outside the south. we talked about it before. he started as the classic line track candidate relying on primarily white collar, liberals and young people. he showed he can committee k compete for blue collar working class white voters. that gets him into the game in ohio, illinois, missouri. but it is not enough. necessary but not sufficient. if we see it again it is hard to
3:28 am
see the dynamic. >> what do you make of the push of stop talking about superdelegates. they're not officially pledged. do you think it is wrong or confusing to state the superdelegate count? >> they are part of the count. whether you like them or not, on the democratic side, those are the rules. there are superdelegates. a lot of them are going to hillary clinton. as long as that remains a fact. >> panel, thank you very much. i believe the polls open a half hour from now in michigan. thank you. we'll rely on you all day long. big news, a stunning legal victory sports reporter erin andrews. a jury her stalker and the nashville hotel where he secretly videotaped her are libel for $55 million.

andrews, a jury award her $55 million in the legal foul with a stalker and the hotel where she was secretly videotaped nude. really emotional, this whole thing. >> it was. good morning, michaela. it was a very emotional trial. it is clear that the jury picked up on a lot of that emotion. in 2008, erin andrews was in nashville covering a college football game. michael barrett, the stalker, was able to get the hotel to reveal she was a guest there. he altered the peep hole of her door. he secretly taped her in the nude and posted it on the internet. the hotel tried to argue we were a victim as well. it's they didn't buy any of that. you saw erin andrews crying openly in court. she left the courtroom when michael barrett testified via video. all six minutes was played to

pentagon confirms as many as 150 al shabaab fighters are dead in somalia. the terrorists posed an immediate threat against american troops and african peace-keeping resource ises in the region. 150 al shabaab fighters killed? that is quite an air strike? i believe it's the biggest in somalia. what do you know about how this happened? >> yeah. pretty good air strike, alisyn. good morning to you. this is a very interesting group. they have been transforming the last five years or so. somewhat dangerous and more clannish and tribal in nature early on in their beginning. al shabaab, the name means "the youth." the follower of sharia law and who want to take down the
3:40 am
government. the camp had been observed for several weeks by overhead platforms and special operators. they determined it was a training camp based on the intelligence from the african union forces and they determined there was a possibility of strike out. what i might suggest is they got very lucky on saturday. this group suddenly found themselves in a formation. it was either a graduation or some type of instructional period. and overhead platform had adequate that. a reaper drone, unmanned aerial system. that aircraft was able to target other aircraft with its laser to drop in a large strike killing a lot of these terrorists. >> the pentagon and then yesterday the white house as well, through the press secretary, said they believe this had to happen because there was an "imminent threat" against the united states.
3:41 am
how so? >> against the united states and countries in the region i think is what he said. al shabaab, again, has been vogue in capacity the last several months. they were an organization back in the early 2010-2011 time frame that was really focused almost exclusively on somalia. you are seeing them partnering early on in 2012 and 2013 with boy koe that ram and al qaeda more recently in the peninsula. they are making bombs as we saw in the backpack or briefcase bombs on that somalian airline. >> the white house press secretary josh earnest talked about why they felt it was so important to go in when they did
3:42 am
and what else they thought the threat was. i believe we have that sound. let's play it. >> the fighters who were scheduled posed an imminent threat to forces in somalia. their removal, the removal of those terrorists fighters degrades al shabaab's ability many including recruiting members, establishing bases, and planning attacks. >> that's interesting. he said it degrades everything that al shabaab would be capable of. let's face it, 150 fighters. that does put a dent in the organization. >> it teaches you never to stand in a formation or have a parade when there is aircraft overhead. they are becoming a multiethnic, multicultural organization. you're going to hear the term a lot, ungoverned spaces. some people use that to claim this is a place where terrorist groups can come together and organize and train.
3:43 am
this is more an unsecure space because both african union and somali government are trying to decrease the capacity of al shabaab. what you are seeing is al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. north africa. even some elements of isis trying to bind together and perhaps create training facilities where these folks cannot only continue to fight against the local government but be exported other places. europe and the united states. that's the intense of al qaeda and al shabaab is under the thumb of al swzawahiri. we are seeing that happen anything north africa and taking their fight to europe and the united states if possible. >> general, thanks so much for all the information this morning. >> thank you, alisyn. >> michaela. a shocking admission from maria sharapova. new follow-up from her failed

welcome back. two high profile legal case are raising on the expectation of privacy from celebrities. erin andrews awarded $55 million against a stalker and hotel chain in which she was taped in the nude. and gawker media posted a sex video with hulk hogan and his best friend's wife. brian selter and danny sa val else. so many people have been following this case. women in particular are horrified this would even go on. first, i want to get your reaction to the verdict and the amount she was awarded. >> her tearful testimony said it all. describing what it was like to
3:54 am
tell her father about this tape that was online. some people felt she was trying to get publicity, having to defend herself. it was heartbreaking to listen to. >> you watched it legally speaking. what did you think of the results? >> i'm not surprised at the verdict against the defendant. i am a little surprised at the dollar amount, which will probably be challenged on appeal. because in this case, as sort of disappointing as a defense argument as it was, there wasn't as strong of a damages argument. because they couldn't point to a dollar amount she lost. instead, i think we were dealing with a jury that said, my god, what if this happened to me? >> i'm sure that's what played into the jury's mind. it was really emotional listening to this young women and the effect. having to defend herself. do you think emotion played into it as well? >> absolutely. the strongest part of the
3:55 am
plaintiff's case was the idea this could happen to anybody. we all stay in hotels. we all trust nobody is drilling out the peep hole. >> hulk hogan, i don't think we're worried this could happen to us. there goes the world. this is about his friend, so-called friend, secretly tapes him having sex with his friend's wife. and now he is claiming that, you know, this is horrifying. his privacy was invaded. he wants $100 million. gawker got the tape, posted it online, said it was newsworthy. news worthy, frank? >> they wrote about this back in 2012. they had a fun time with it. they told a story what it is like to watch a celebrity having sex with their best friend's wife. then only showed a few seconds. they were judicious in what they chose. hulk hogan said that was enough. it was a violation of his privacy. does he have privacy?
3:56 am
or does the real life figure have privacy? >> is there a difference between the two? >> what is the threshold for this case? he makes a good point. you have the individual and then the entity. >> he plays an actor on stage. >> make no mistake, it has first amendment implications that erin andrews case did not. you have the expectation of privacy and the newsworthiness. somebody change anything their hotel room is almost never newsworthy. gawker's position is this is somebody who talked on radio shows about his sex life, whether or not he would ever sleep with a friend's wife on radio shows. >> it was a running joke. >> that is a stronger argument for newsworthiness. >> we have a different threshold for newsworthy here at cnn. >> when you take a step back and look at it, what is becoming
3:57 am
news worthy after all is just somebody's sexual video -- >> so do you think he has a strong case to be made, hulk hogan, that his privacy was infringed upon? >> i think he has a strong case. but no matter what, i think reasonable minds can differ. it boils down to one word, newsworthiness. to what degree, if at all, is someone's affairs with another high profile celebrity's wife, to what degree is it newsworthy if at all. if this was a private action, then hulk hogan has a strong case. >> and away from the legal aspect of it. particularly the hulk hogan one, how is this going to change the landscape of what celebrities expect. we know there has been battle between stars and paparazzi. but this is a different level of things. >> it certainly is. this is being fought in florida. where hulk hogan is from and
3:58 am
where a lot of his fans are. he may have a better chance of coming through here. maybe owe appeal gawker will come through. they said this is existential for their company. $100 million. they don't have $100 million. i do think it is newsworthy when a former heavyweight champion of the world is having is app affair, sleeping with his friend's wife. >> but do we need to see the gory details? >> they said they only showed a few seconds. >> morality is another aspect of this. i will stop here for now. we have somebody from gawker joining us in the next hour. >> this case is going to be fascinating. >> it will be fascinating to see. unsavory and fascinating. >> they do happen on topics like this. >> good point. brian, thank you for that.
3:59 am
danny, thanks for joining us. today obviously super tuesday 2. lots of races to watch. let's do it. this guy is such a scoundrel. >> you have to vote for marco rubio. >> little marco rubio couldn't be elected dog catcher. >> we have our work cut out for us. >> this is a campaign of the people, by the people, and for the people. >> we will not let a person like that ever become president. >> one of the deadliest usair strikes in years. >> 150 members of the somali terror group al shabaab were killed. >> it is concerning. they do have an eye toward the u.s.
4:00 am
this is "new day" with chris cuomo, alisyn perrotta and michaela pereira. >> good morning. welcome back to "new day". super tuesday part two. it could be a make more break day. republicans compete anything four states today. polls open in delegate rich michigan, along with idaho, michigan, mississippi and hawaii. ted cruz gaining. marco rubio trying to hold on. >> democrats heading to the polls in a few states as well. michigan and mississippi. hillary clinton hoping to build what could be an almost insurmountable delegate lead over bernie sanders. why? we'll explain right now. the race covered only the way cnn can. phil mattingly live on the republican race. good morning, phil. >> good morning, chris. in four states, a series of tests for republican candidates.
4:01 am
in mississippi, can donald trump remain his strangle hold on the south? or can-can ted cruz rally after a big saturday and continue his momentum going? and in michigan, donald trump. and can he bring any momentum in what might be the biggest contest next tuesday in his home state of florida. >> nascar endorsed trump. can you believe that? >> reporter: donald trump heading strong for what's being dubbed super tuesday two. >> i've been to michigan a lot. i think we will do well there. >> with 150 crucial delegates at stake, marco rubio, ted cruz hustle to take votes away from trump. the front-runner sparring with protesters during his swing through north carolina. >> oh, we have a protester. out, out.
4:02 am
bye. go home to mommy. go home to mommy. tell her to tuck you in bed. bye-bye. >> reporter: cruz making quick and previously unannounced stops in mississippi. >> they had been supporting donald trump who are realizing he isn't who they thought it was. >> reporter: and another state voting today, michigan. >> this is effectively a rally in the middle of the night. how is that? >> reporter: florida senator marco rubio shifting his focus to his home state. >> it always comes down to florida. >> reporter: a new poll showing rubio down eight points as he continues making the case that he is the best trump alternative. >> i'm the only one with any chance of beating donald trump in florida. if you don't want donald trump to be the republican nominee, you have to vote for marco rubio. >> reporter: and ohio governor john kasich ramping up his efforts in his home state next week. >> we're going to get momentum out of michigan. we're going to win ohio. there will be a campaign all across the country. it's going to be exciting.
4:03 am
>> reporter: as the four candidates battle it out for 150 delegates at stake, each campaign keeping one eye towards next tuesday. marco rubio getting a big boost on that front. 2012 republican nominee mitt romney cutting a radio ad for him today. not necessarily an endorsement of marco rubio but an endorsement he is willing to support anybody who will take down donald trump. he is willing to do that for john kasich and ted cruz as well. >> meanwhile, on the democratic side, hillary clinton and bernie sanders battling for votes in michigan and mississippi. clinton is hoping to surpass the halfway delegate mark to accelerate her path to the nomination. our senior political correspondent brianna keilar is live in miami. we will not question the location of where you're coming from. >> that's right. the candidates will be pivoting here to florida. what can i say, i drew the short
4:04 am
stick. good morning, michaela. bernie sanders and hillary clinton confronting some of their vulnerabilities in a town hall. bernie sanders specifically doing cleanup in the cnn debate. he was asked about racial blind spots. he said when you're white you don't know what it is like to be in a ghetto, to be poor, to be hassled while walking down the street. a lot of supporters jumped on that saying he is suggesting only black people live in ghettos. he explained himself last night. here's what he said. >> in african-american communities you have people living in desperation, often being abused by white police officers. that is a bad thing. that's got to change. i'm fighting to reform a broken criminal justice system. i know about white poverty. it exists in my state and all over this country. >> but hillary clinton dogged
4:05 am
again in this event about her e-mail controversy. more than 2,000 e-mails she sent on her private server now classified. 22 of them top secret. she did blame overclassification in part for that. here's what she said. >> others might say that wasn't at the time but now with circumstance we don't want to release it. so therefore we have to classify it. i've asked, and i echo colin powell on this, release it. once the american people see it they will know how absurd this is. >> and even before the michigan and mississippi primaries tonight, alisyn, you will see the candidates pivoting towards another series of contests next week. that is why florida is so much in play. bernie sanders will be heading here today. clinton will head here tomorrow. they will take part in a univision event tomorrow simulcast on cnn. >> we will be heading there swell. new days will be airing from
4:06 am
there tomorrow. we'll see you tonight, brianna. thanks so much. >> polls now open in michigan. a delegate rich state for sanders and trump. jean has more on all of that. hi, jean. >> good morning. we just heard the announcement. the poll is now open. people immediately started voting. they had been lined up ahead of time. we are in the heart of the midwest. warren, michigan, the largest superb outside of detroit. this is general motors technical center several miles from here. this is the birth place of the reagan democrat. that's important to both sides. it is delegate rich. 59 for the republican. 147 for the democrats. but this is also where the reagan democrats, the people not satisfied with their registered
4:07 am
democratic party switched over and voted for ronald reagan in 1980 and 1984. that is what donald trump is hoping will happen this time around. he has made a point from almost day one to talk about the auto industry, jobs being outsourced, companies leaving the united states. this is the heart and soul of where we are right here. we have learned where the democratic party stands on this. bernie sanders did not vote for the auto industry. he then firing back saying when the financial institutions became the important part of that, he had to vote against the auto industry. but right here they are expecting huge turnouts. chris, voting will extend to 8:00 tonight. >> thank you very much. appreciate the reporting. one of the big questions that has to be answered, what does texas senator ted cruz need to do to beat trump to make the that he is the man. let's ask the coalition.
4:08 am
it is good to see you, congressman. >> chris, always a pleasure. thank you. >> so let's take a look at one of the headlines. the sun sentinel unusual refusing to endorse any of the four. but when it comes to cruz, here's what they said. senator cruz has alienated almost everyone leading lindsey graham. said if someone killed mr. cruz on the floor of the senate and the trial was in in the senate, no one could convict you. cruz scares us. he should scare republicans who want to win in november. cruz has not earned your vote. respond, sir. >> well, it's very interesting. lindsey graham's poor attempt at humor aside. the fact of the matter is ted cruz is not running as an insider. he is not running as a friend of washington. quite the contrary. he is running because he believes in the people of this country and the fact that we need to shake up washington.
4:09 am
4:10 am
4:11 am
you are going for the same people trump did when you look at the outsider status. you can't beat them and you won't beat them. >> we have certainly last weekend in two different states. but as we get closer to voting in a lot of these states, i think people and the voters in particular will be very concerned about what they see happening in the news. when you see north korea rattling its nuclear saber at south korea. when you see what's happening in the middle east, people will realize while there may be some surface appeal to donald trump's brashness and blustering, we need somebody in the white house like senator cruz that is much more responsible in terms of how he would approach foreign affairs and national defense
4:12 am
than donald trump. what can you point to that gives you any confidence in senator cruz's ability to handle foreign affairs? >> well, the fact that he has been in the senate for several years now and has been willing to take on the washington establishment in terms of striking the proper balance between necessary national intelligence and surveillance and protecting personal privacy. that he takes a very, very measured look at supporting our troops and national defense establishment. he has been there. he's done that. he's done his homework. he does not shoot from the hip. he does not shoot off his mouth simply to bluster like mr. trump does. that's the temperament we want in a commander in chief. >> we will have comprehensive coverage all day long. results from today's super
4:13 am
tuesday number two contest starting at 7:00 p.m. then back-to-back debates for you right here on cnn. tomorrow night cnn will simulcast univision democratic debate in miami. thursday night we'll have the last republican debate before the big primaries in florida and ohio. winner take all here. live from florida tomorrow and the rest of the week. >> schedule that in your daytimer. breaking news. a packed commuter train derailed in california sending passengers from one car into the water. what is incredible, everyone on board survived. live with all the breaking details for us, dan. well, hi, michaela. this was quite a scare. you had bad weather move into the bay area. that is what caused a tree to fall down, which ultimately led to this train derailment. breaking overnight, a harrowing scene of panic and chaos.
4:14 am
a packed computer train derailing 40 miles east of san francisco after hitting a downed tree on the tracks, sending a train car full of passengers plunging into a swollen creek. >> i realized something was wrong. i held on to the rails. >> i came out of my seat. >> nine injured. four critically. >> absolutely chaotic. you can only imagine the terror and the angst that went through their mind. very fortunate nobody was killed. >> reporter: rescue crews fighting the creek's fast currents through the night to pull riders to safety. >> it's scary.
4:15 am
it's still scary. but, you know, somebody was watching over us tonight. everybody got out. and everybody is going to hopefully be okay. as you can imagine, there will be no service along that route. >> thank you for all of those new details. we have new details about the massive air strikes in somalia. 150 al shabaab fighters were killed at a training camp before they could launch an attack. barbara starr is live from the pentagon with more. barbara, what are your sources telling you? >> good morning, alisyn. they just announced the pentagon says they killed 150 fighters of the al shabaab terror group linked to al qaeda at a training camp as those fighters were preparing to move out and stage what the pentagon believes was an imminent attack. they said they had to move against them. here's what the white house press secretary had to say about the operation. >> their removal, the removal of
4:16 am
the terrorist fighters, degrades the ability to meet the group's objective in somalia, including recruiting new members, establishing bases, and planning attacks on forces. >> so this attack by u.s. drones and air strikes perhaps the deadliest attack the u.s. has staged against a terror group in one single location. the concern about al shabaab, this group had been back on its heels sometimes but is by all accounts said to be behind the recent attack that brought a commercial airliner down in somalia. just yesterday explosive attack at an airport in somalia as some luggage was being examined. this group has enough muscle power, fire power now to move beyond somalia's borders. >> significant development. barbara starr, thank you very much. netanyahu canceling a
4:17 am
meeting next week. apparently netanyahu failed to inform the white house of his decision not to come. they heard of the cancellation in news reports. he wanted to avoid any appearance of interfering with the u.s. election. got to show you this crazy video. some didn't believe it was real but it is. a car going down the wrong way on the street with a 15 foot tree lodged in its grille. big surprise, the drive was arrested for driving under the influence. miraculously, no one was hurt. >> that's a good driver. if you can with our air bag deployed, a huge tree in your hood and drunk, wow. >> it was originally posted on
4:18 am
facebook. police actually posted their own video of it to corroborate, yeah -- >> it's real. it's also real lucky. it's always interesting to me what winds up taking somebody's life. wow. that one fragile moment. then you get something like this. a guy hits a tree, male, woman, winds up driving with the whole tree stick out of the car. i hope they make the most of the opportunity they were given. you got lucky. >> we should follow up to fell you what the punishment will be. >> meanwhile, who will win the all important michigan today? and antioxidants. now with foundations in shades for more skin tones. [sportscaster vo]command performance sales event... there's always a cause for celebration. [sportscaster vo] with extraordinary offers on our most powerful performance line ever. including the exhilarating is...

4:20 am
4:21 am
4:22 am
polls opened a half hour ago
4:23 am
in michigan. good morning, governor. >> good morning. >> is there anxiety going in. >> of course. there are these spade of polls showing she was way ahead in michigan. michigan polls are notoriously unreliable. >> not only are michigan polls unreliable. but polls throughout this entire primary have not been terribly accurate. let me show a little snapshot where the polls are according do monmouth university. this is michigan how it would stack up if polls are to be trusted. bernie sanders has 42%. if hillary clinton does in fact, win in a big way in michigan and mississippi, is there a path forward for bernie sanders? >> well, first of all, i do beg the question in terms of this poll. i don't think it's going to be a 13-point win. i think it will be a lot tighter. of course as you know, the
4:24 am
delegates are awarded proportion tpr proportionally. he is going to stay in. he is bringing an important messagement and i think that's a very important thing for our democratic family overall. one just hopes and expects that the democratic side will not be as, how shall we saw, raucous, as the republican side in terms of animosity between the candidates. >> hillary clinton and bernie sanders were both in flint, michigan for the cnn town hall there and to talk about the water crisis. both of them called for the current govern to resign over this. do you think this water crisis was the governor's fault? >> oh, it was , for sure. he admitted it was his appointee that caused the decision to switch the water to the more corrosive flint river. this was done in order to save
4:25 am
money. this is a signal to these republicans that government is not supposed to be run like a business to make profit. this is not just about saving money at every opportunity. this is about serving people. and the fact that they could have added this corrosion controlled treatment to prevent the lead pipes from being corroded for $140 a day and they chose not to do that tells you there is a big difference in how you can govern from the side of the democrats who want to invest in people and serve people on the side of the people and those who want to run it like a big. >> john kasich disagrees with hillary clinton in particular, calling for governor snyder's resignation. let me play that for you. >> she better watch what she's saying. that's demagoguery out of her. i know her. and i don't like that. i'm really agitated with the
4:26 am
fact that here she is calling on somebody else to resign with her history, with the history of her family. give me a break. >> governor, what do you think of that argument? >> well, you know what, i think he's particularly sensitive because in john kasich's own state, sebring ohio and cleveland that also have high lead levels i would like to see what the republicans are saying about flint. he is defending the governor rather than fighting for clean water for the citizens. what are these republican candidates -- i'm so disappointed they haven't been called out other than one question at the debate in detroit last week. one question was asked and only one person responded. it was marco rubio. and he, too, defended the governor rather than defending the citizens of flint. i want to hear what they are going to say about removing lead pipes in these older communities. it's not just flint. it is across the cub.
4:27 am
country. it is in sebring. it is in cleveland. >> governor, as you know, the question of trustworthiness and honesty continues to dog hillary clinton. it came up last night at this fox town hall. this is a moment where bernie sanders was asked it. let me play it for you. >> do you share the concerns of your supporters that secretary clinton is not obviously trustworthy? >> well, i will let the people of the united states of america ask that question. >> does the hillary clinton campaign appreciate that bernie sanders chose not to engage on that in the same way that he previously not to engage on the e-mails? >> yeah. and i think bernie sanders has been around the block. and he knows that the republicans have spent millions
4:28 am
and millions of dollars trying to attack the clintons over decades obviously. and now in this race, millions and millions of dollars trying to attack her. why did john kasich single her out and no go after bernie sanders? they are more fearful of her. this notion of her being untrustworthy, et cetera, they will continue to put millions of dollars -- and i just hope democrats are not influenced by that. i think when fox, fox is the biggebi biggest purr have aor of that. >> when exit polls are asked, fox isn't just peddling this. it's the voters who think this. >> no, of course. >> bernie sanders gets much higher marks. 89% to hillary clinton's 45% on that question of honest and trustworthiness.
4:29 am
>> of course. of course. that is a result of the right wing putting out so much related to that question. they will continue to do that. let's be clear. if she gets the nomination, this is not going to be the end of that story. she's got to continue to work on gaining the trust of the voters. they are very well aware of that. they are going to continue to do that. i know they are grateful to the sanders team for not buying in to the republican arguments against her. and this will continue to be an issue that the republicans will peddle for sure. >> jennifer granholm thank you for being here. we appreciate it. over to michaela. big day indeed. a brand-new poll could spell trouble for donald trump. how does the billionaire front-runner fare? we'll discuss it next.

you see the numbers there. everybody is making a little bit of gain. when you see the matchups between trump and cruz, trump and rubio, you get a very different picture of what's going on. here's cruz and trump. 54/51. >> cruz wins. as does marco rubio. >> if the numbers themselves are not compelling, yes, rubio beats trump as well. >> yes! >> let's discuss these permutations. host of cnn smerconish, michael smerconish. there is a big development of the editorial variety from a key newspaper, the "sun sentinel." when you look at these numbers, what does it mean to you, michael, he is up, trump, if you have the whole grouping. but when you do the pairings,
4:35 am
he's down more than we have seen. >> the most unpopular republican presidential candidate is winning the nomination. think about that. the most unpopular candidate they have is nevertheless thus far winning. and this presents it. this brand-new "washington post"/abc survey has it in stark terms. the data has been there all along. it shows two-thirds of republicans deeply unsatisfied with this republican nominee. so if they get him in a had he had to head, they can he beat him. look at the calendar, man, it's got to happen in a hurry or it will be too late. >> you need to be pointing out who is winning when the numbers are right in front of us. >> people actually listen to all us on the radio. >> and waste all this? >> michael, explain the math. why if they love marco rubio in the head to head matchup won't
4:36 am
they vote for him today? >> i don't know that they love any of them except the one-third or 35% who do love trump and would walk across hot coals for him. the number is something like 80% of them are rock hard for donald trump and they are not going to make any kind of move no matter what he does or says. that's evident from the things he has done and has said. >> the sun sentinel," they are nonendorsement. they can't endorse any of the four. here's a look at why. put up the statements, please. >> the sun sentinel editorial board not making an endorse. because the kind of person who should be running is not in the race. we cannot were endorse businessman donald trump, hometown senator marco rubio or texas senator ted cruz because they are unqualified to be president.
4:37 am
michael. >> interesting. they said nice things about the hometown hero jeb. but of course he's gone from the race. they said nice things about john kasich. but they can't see a path forward for john kasich, which brings us back to tonight and michigan and what will happen a week from tonight. in the big picture, i think what we learned this evening is whether trump's momentum has slowed such that he's in jeopardy a week from tonight in florida and ohio. and, chris, alisyn, this race is going to go one of two directions. either donald trump wins in michigan tonight and then wins in ohio and florida next tuesday. and then he's got it locked up. he doesn't have it locked up mathematically, but it will be a certainty. or he loses ohio or florida and we will see that perhaps in the margin tonight in michigan. then this thing will hobble along for the next four or five months. and nobody is going to get to 1,237 before they arrive in
4:38 am
cleveland in july. >> let me tell you why the sun sentinel doesn't want to go for hometown candidate marco rubio. because rubio has failed to do his job as a senator, broken the promises he made to floridians and backed away from his lone signature piece on legislation, we cannot endorse him for president. how is the future looking for marco rubio, michael? >> well, you don't know where he goes next, right? he's not running for reelection. when i read that editorial, i thought of chris christie. those editorials in new jersey critical of chris christie pretty much were saying this is not the guy that ran for governor of new jersey. in the sun sentinel case, they will say this is not the marco rubio that was initially elected in florida. it spoke to the contortionist one must become to curry favor
4:39 am
in the process. you have to become something that you are often are not to apiece the interests and then pull yourself to the center to run as a general election cancelled date. >> what do you think of this. as we all know, here's the latest theory to what the push is to get marco rubio out. you get out. you get out before florida. why? well, the obvious, to allow a coalescing around ted cruz in that state. probably not john kasich at this point. you allow that to happen. you look like a hero for your party. the sacrifice winds up being rewarded because you're young and you have a big future. >> thank you. >> and the governor seat in florida will be open to you. does that make is sense to you? >> yes. it makes sense to me. here's what i want to know. which of the two of them, cruz or rubio, stands a better chance of taking down donald trump in florida specifically? >> rubio. >> if it's marco rubio, then
4:40 am
rubio needs to hang in and deny florida if he can possibly do so to donald trump. i'm not sure what happens in ohio. kasich has a decent hand in ohio, especially if he runs well in michigan tonight. but if rubio gets out only to have donald trump win and defeat ted cruz, then what really have you gained if the objective is to deny donald trump. there you go. michael smerconish, thanks so much. great to get your perspective. >> see you tonight. funeral arrangements for former first lady nancy reagan are set. what were her final years like without the love of her life? we'll speak with someone who knew ron and nancy well. hi i'm kristie.

former first lady nancy reagan will be laid to rest on friday. her funeral is going to be closed to the public, but it will be televised. joining us now is somebody who was really part of the reagan's inner circle. "vanity fair" special correspondent. the author of "ronnie and nancy." this was a friend to you, not a subject. i'm sorry for your loss. >> thank you very much. >> we know each other very well. and i know this relationship mattered to you. >> yeah. >> you feel this was one of the real ones. a lot of couples become power couples. they achieve goals. they're close. but you say not like these two. why? >> because they really were in love. and they really were meant for each other. you know, it's kind of corny to say destiny brought them
4:45 am
together. but when they were married in 1952, he had just been let go by warner brothers. she by mgm. they were out-of-work actors. 14 years later, he's governor of the largest in the union. >> michael reagan says, nancy is where she always wanted to be, with herronnie. now she is at peace. she had a lot of years after he succumbed to his illness. >> i think she proved her mettle. i think a lot of people who had been her critics when she was first lady, she was frivolous and interested in social life and clothes, expected her to off to london, new york, and paris. she barely left los angeles. even in los angeles, we would have lunch at the bel air hotel, which is 10 minutes from their house. she couldn't wait to get back to the house to make sure everything was okay with ronnie.
4:46 am
she was his primary caregiver, his protector. we photographed them for the cover of "vanity fair". it took me one full week to get her approval to photograph him. >> very protective. >> very, very protective. >> there were layered understandings of her relevance and what her image was. >> well, i think part of what they get wrong is partially by herself. she was much more powerful than she let on. she was much morin flewen challenge, including policy matters particularly in personnel. she always kind of -- she didn't want to outshine her husband. she didn't want to seem like the power behind the throne. i'm not suggesting he was that. she was his closest adviser and really the personnel director. she famously got rid of the
4:47 am
second chief of staff. she put jim bakker in the first place. is she never wanted hague for secretary of state. she wants george schultz from the first. >> how did we regard her recommendations? >> he took her seriously. when people came and said your wife is manipulating things behind the scenes, he never criticized her. because he knew she was protecting him. she was a much better judge of character than he was. >> was it a concerted action. would he say, fine, not to bring up a house of cards analogy but where the company is open. you take that on. you talk to this guy. >> i think more tasic. he couldn't fire people. his father was an alcoholic who lost many a job. and it was too painful for ronald reagan to think of actually firing someone. so she had to do it.
4:48 am
>> had to do it or that was something she was easier doing? >> no. she had to do it. >> she didn't enjoy it? >> no. she said to me once, bob, don't say i was tough. say i was strong. i had to be strong for ronnie. because he liked everybody. and he didn't want to believe that people could be working for themselves, trying to upstage him or just not doing a good job. he always looked for the best in people. she was a very judgmental person. we net 1981, shortly after the inauguration. she just decided she liked me from the very first meeting. it was hard for me to do anything wrong in her eyes. if she didn't like you, forget it. >> what was her manner? how would she let you know? >> she could be very cold. she could give looks that could kill.
4:49 am
she was a formidable lady. but she was also sweet and quite funny. she wasn't articulate in the sense that hillary clinton is is speaking in perfect photographs. but she absorbed the most complicated information. and she was able to bring it to him in a simpler form. >> if it were a different era, do you think we would have is seen nancy reagan having her own public life? >> you know, i joked with her when hillary clinton announced, i think you should run. and she loved hearing that. but i don't think she was really suited for the campaign trail. why not? >> i think she is someone you have to get to know to appreciate. unlike her husband, she wasn't this larger-than-life public personality. i think she could have done a good job as senator, or any
4:50 am
position. >> what do you think is important for people to remember about nancy reagan as discussions of her legacy, her impact, her meaning within our history, our culture? >> well, when i wrote this vanityfair.com civility. bipartisanship. she believed in inviting everybody to the white house. inviting a lot of people. we've lost so much of that. she believed in appropriatety. she was always appropriately dressed. she had perfect manners. all of those values that we just seem to have lost as a society. and i think she really elevated the role of first lady. she and jackie kennedy the most for the image of the first lady and therefore for america. the president -- what the reagans understood is there is ant important ceremonial aspect and image aspect to the presidency. because that is what people all over the world see as america.
4:51 am
the people who are in the white house. >> and right now that image is taking a beating. bob colacello, thank you very much. we look forward to anything else you're writing. >> thank you chris. conservative radio listeners lighting up the phone lines. what are they so angry about? straight ahead. avo: when account lead craig wilson books at laquinta.com. avo: he gets a ready for you alert the second his room is ready. avo: so he knows exactly when he can settle in and practice his big pitch. avo: and when craig gets his pitch down pat, do you know what he becomes? client: great proposal! let's talk more over golf!

so ever since mitt romney and the rest of the ghop establishment started campaigning to stake down donald trump, phone lines at
4:55 am
conservative radio stations have been ringing you have to hook. callers are frustrated and angry. we get more from cnn's randy kay. >> jim welcome to the program, thanks for calling in today. >> at mercury studios just outside dallas, texas, conservative radio host dana lash is getting an earful from a caller named jim. >> -- mitt romney's speech made me lean more towards trump because the one thing i'm tired of is the establishment. who you do hate more? the democrats or the gop establishment? >> ever since mitt romney came out urging voters to choose anyone but donald trump voters have been turning to conservative radio shows to voice their anger and frustration. >> romney is a two-time race los loser. so, you know, why are you even
4:56 am
in the position to say anything against somebody who's been doing well and leading the whole race? >> whether do you make of people like the romneys and those individuals speaking out. >> i think they are trying to come to the rescue of the establishment and, you know, there is billions of in untold power that's at stake here with an upset of the establishment. >> john mccain who was on the republican ticket in '08 echoed romney's concerns, urging voters to think long and hard before choosing trump. >> would you say it comes off as pat ronzing to the voter. >> i think mitt romney krissing any at this point is patronizing. i think mccain criticizing at this point is patronizing. we're not children. we're capable of making our own decisionsi. >> i think the republican national committee is against trump because he's doing so successful. >> not every caller is a fan
4:57 am
though. >> he's is republican version of barack obama's hope and change. instead of hope and change he's offering i'll make america great again and he's sweeping a bunch of dumb voter whoever going to be swept up in emotion and vote on a jingle. this has come down to a referendum on the stupidity of most of the american voters. >> one listener even told dana they believe romney is trying to wig ill his way into the oval office. >> i think it's quite clear. i listened to the interview he is gave in the past week or so. romney wants another shot at it. and it's one of the most selfish things i've ever seen a politician do. >> perhaps the establishment has some explaining to do. randy kay. >> something has its finger on the pulse like conservative talk radio. they hear it every day. it's fascinating. >> interesting to see the disconnect between, you know, people, the voters, right?
4:58 am
and the establishment. and you have to wonder if they are not paying attention, the rnc. >> it seems like what we're seeing within the gop right now is ignoring one immutable law of politics and abusing the other. the ignoring the perception is reality. and the second one they are abusing is you never tell people that they are wrong to feel the way they feel. and that's what's going on with discouraging trump followers right now. very dangerous territory. we're going pick up on the storyline. new poll numbers. super tuesday is upon us so let's get to it. >> i swear i'm gonna vote for donald trump -- -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com
4:59 am
>> this is "new day" with cris cuomo, alisyn camerota and michaela pereira. good morning and welcome to your "new day." tuesday march 8, 8:00 in the east. it is super tuesday my friends, part two. another big day in the 2016 race. on the republican side, four states in play. voters heading to the polls in mississippi, michigan, idaho.
5:00 am
the caucuses in hawaii. the spotlight will be in michigan. overall a hundred delegates up for grabs. there is some hint of trouble ahead for donald trump in all cap, big if the gop field win knows to two candidates. tell them about it my friend. >> on the other side the democrats competing in two states today. delegate-rich michigan and mississippi. hillary clinton leading in both states in the polls and trying to turn her attention to the general election fight. let's begin with cnn's phil mattingly live in detroit. what is the latest phil? >> reporter: good morning alisyn. four contests and really four kaen candidates trying to seize momentum into a set of huge primaries next tuesday. how it works might determine the future of the race. >> nascar endorsed trump. can you believe that?
5:01 am
>> donald trump running strong as voters head to the polls today as what's being dubbed super tuesday two. with 156 delegates at take, marco rubio and ted cruz hustle to take votes from trump. the front runner sparring with protesters in north carolina. >> oh we have a protester. out, out. bye. go home to mommy. tell her to tuck you in bed. bye-bye. >> cruz making quick and previously unannounced stops in mississippi. >> we're seeing folks who had been supporting donald trump who are realizing he isn't who he thought he was. >> reporter: and arriving late in another state today michigan. >> effectively a rally in the middle of the night. how is that? >> reporter: rubio shifting focus to his home state, a few
5:02 am
poll showing rubio down by eight points in the sunshine state as he continues making the case he's the best alternative. >> i'm the only one with any chance of beating trump in florida. if you don't want trump to be the republican nominee you have to vote for marco rubio. >> reporter: before ramping up his own efforts in his own state next week is kasich. >> we're going to get momentum out of michigan and win ohio. there is going to be campaigning all across the country. it is going to be exciting. >> michaela, all eyes really on donald trump tonight and that is not necessarily a new thing but the reason might be different. trying to figure out if there are some cracks in his campaign. certainly republicans are laying the groundwork to capitalize on any type of trump weakness in florida where marco rubio has to win. 2012 gop nominee mitt romney calling in support of rubio
5:03 am
candidacy. it is endorsement of anybody willing to beat donald trump. romney spokesman saying he'd be more than willing to do the same for ted cruz or john kasich in ohio. >> an anti endorsement. all right phil. thanks so much for that. >> turning to the democrats, a pivotal battle under way in two states. delegate rich michigan and mississippi. hillary clinton looking to pull away. our senior political correspondent brianna keilar is live with more from miami. >> reporter: going into this key primary day both candidates confronting some vulnerabilities. bernie sanders explaining something that he said during the cnn debate when asked about racial blind spots and he said white people don't know what it's like to live in ghettos to be poor, to be hassled while walking down the streets. hillary clinton attacked him by
5:04 am
implying only black people live in ghettos. >> in african american communities you have people living in desperation often being abused by white police officers. that is a bad thing. and that has got to change and that's why i'm fighting to reform a broken criminal justice system. but i know about white poverty. it exists in my state. it exists all over this country. >> but hillary clinton dogged again by her e-mail koefrs. it has had over 2,000 of her e-mails classified on her personal server a personal e-mail address. more than 20 of those e-mails classified as top secret. she blamed in part overclassification. >> others might say, you know, that wasn't at the time but now with circumstances s ws we dont to release it so therefore we have to classify it. i've asked and i echo colon powell on this. release it and once the american people see it they will know how
5:05 am
absurd this is. >> and you will see the candidates pivoting to the next big series of contests including here in florida. bernie sanders will be here this afternoon for an event. hillary clinton here tomorrow ahead of a univision debate simulcast on cnn. >> brianna keilar, wipe that smile off your face. you know you have no business being in florida. i don't know how you swung this but we're coming down to investigate. all right. ted cruz is hoping for a big boost in mississippi. can he kcapitalize on the governor's endorsement? is he going to be the best challenge for trump? will hillary clinton fend off bernie sanders? to cover all this we're on it the only way cnn can be. we're live in jackson, mississippi with more. >> reporter: the spotlight is on michigan and the stakes also extremely high in mississippi. poll open already a couple
5:06 am
minutes and early birds starting to show up. a total of 81 delegates up for grabs today. 40 on the republican side and 41 on 2 democratic side. folks are stopping by to cast their ballot. the way it workss as you walk in, if you are republican you stand in this line. if you are democrat you stand on the other line. you register and get your ballot and then fill it out. then you walk it over to what is a scanning machine that is here on the premisis and then of course that ballot is cast. we did see yesterday as you mentioned governor phil bryant endorsing ted cruz but as we witnessed this past saturday a governor's endorsement is important but does it guarantee you a win? not necessarily. >> thanks so much. great to see you. let's go this morning to a new abc washington post poll to show you. it shows trump in the lead national at 34%.
5:07 am
but that lead is narrowing somewhat. with ted cruz closing in at 25%. but the poll also shows something else interesting. if the race comes down to two candidates, trump loses to both ted cruz and marco rubio. let's talk about it and bring in our cnn political commentator and former president george w. bush staffer margaret hoover and cnn political commentator jeffrey lord, a donald trump supporter. great to have you both here today. >> good morning alisyn. >> good morning. >> margaret, explain how trump wins in most every poll he wins when it is a crowded field. but when it is a two-man race he loses to both rubio and cruise. >> this is the disadvantage of having 17 people run for president. we always say we like the competition on the republican side. let the best rise to the top. we want competition of ideas except this hasn't been a competition of ideas and having such a crowded field means there is no consolidation. the reason trump wins when there are four people in the field is
5:08 am
because all of the other votes are spread out between kasich and rubio and cruz. >> meaning he has a ceiling, a rel ceiling of somewhere in the 30s or 40s and when it comes to a two-man others -- >> they all consolidate around the alternative. donald trump has the higher negatives. hi numbers all say they would never vote for trump. far higher than cruz, rubio, kasich. >> is that how you see the math jeffrey is this. >> first of all i'm a little skeptical. this is the washington post and the washington post has gone out of its way. they are now on their fifth editorial i think just absolutely assaling donald trump. so call me skeptical but at the end of the day it is not polls, it is votes that matter. and we could say well somebody should be in. somebody should be out. the fact of the matter is the field is what the field is. donald trump has two contests today. two contests in mississippi. there are four elections today. the michigan one is going we're
5:09 am
going to be watching and mississippi as well -- >> polls smols. he keeps winning. >> he always says the polls win. if you look at the polls i'm winning everywhere. >> now that we're -- >> -- polls are out the window? >> sure but the polls really don't matter ultimately. it is the delegates and if he keeps winning it doesn't matter that they would win in a head to head match up. >> what it does suggest is that the tone and the momentum is shifting in this race and we saw this in louisiana over the weekend. and louisiana donald trump had won the majority of the early votes. this is the underbelly of early voting. late deciders. the negative attacks on donald trump are actually working because late deciders are breaking even more stalwartly against donald trump now. >> jeffrey can you just put on your consulting strategy hat for 3450b and ted cruz? don't these polls suggest that neither one of them should get out? >> yeah. if you are one of them.
5:10 am
and frankly i think this decision is going to be made for marco rubio come next tuesday with florida. he's behind in the polls in his own state. when you have got to fight like a dog to carry your own state that should tell you something right there. so i have a feeling that, you know, things are not looking well for him. >> donald trump has begun doing something margaret at his rallies. it is making some people excited and others quite uncomfortable. he's begun asking you will of his legion of supporters to raise their right hand and sort of pledge loyalty to him. let me play for you what he recently did at this rally in orlando florida. >> raise your right hand. i do solemnly swear, that i no matter how i feel, no matter what the conditions, if
5:11 am
there is hurricanes or whatever, [ audience repeating ] -- that's good enough. "will vote on or before, the 12th, for donald j. trump for president." >> okay. so margaret you see the crowd likes that. and he say he's having fun with it. a still photo of that photo with people with their right arms raised in the air has gone viral and it has made some jewish leaders uncomfortable. what do you think of these moments. >> i think donald trump generally has demonstrated not just lack of awareness in foreign relations and public policy but also american history and global history. i think he doesn't mean anything by it, to his credit. of course look, you know, this is an orthodox campaign, everything about it has been unorthodox. nobody should just jump on the hitler band wagon and look the
5:12 am
real question is all of those people are going to vote for him anyway. those are the people in his camp. he's not winning over anybody new by doing that. and he may mix up the political map. he may win kwhiet voters all over the country in states that haven't been competitive before. but even if you win 65% of white voters you still need others. and most of the republicans running in the blue states are terrified because him at the top of the ticket would keep women and minorities home from voting for them. >> what do you think of that logic jeffrey. >> i think we've been down the road margaret was suggesting before. what she's suggesting is the approach that mitt romney and took and establishment republicans take and they keep losing. you know, and frankly i'm not comfortable with this dividing
5:13 am
people by race business. white voters, black voters, how about american voters. >> sure i understand and you have made this point before and it is a good point. we're all american voters. do you think that donald trump can get enough american voters from all wux of life. >> yes. i'll tell you why. precisely because establishment republicans keep doing this the wrong way. i said the other day, and i was trying to be database -- i was perhaps not so gentle but i'll rooept it again. some of these republicans, these are the kind of folks that used to drive jack kemp crazy. the idea of civil rights is tipping the back waiter an extra five bucks at the country club. we need a candidate who is going to go into the communities around the country and treat them as americans. the african american community, if you want to use that phrase, is having a very difficult time with unemployment. and this is the obama administration. well why is it?
5:14 am
it is because of the policies so donald trump -- >> you're the person bringing up the dem grarvegs. so you think that african american voters and hispanic voters will vote for trump? >> sure. because if you appeal to them based on economics, as opposed to race, you are in a better position. and it is better for the country. it is healthier. >> jeffrey, i would like to see that. because you are right. i agree with you. you have to go talk to people. you have to bring your message to new communities. so you and i are agreeing on tactics. it is hard to see how donald trump works his way back from some of the incredibly divisive language he's laid down in the campaign. but i would love to see him go into african american community, churches all around the country and win a lot of these votes. mitt romney won zero percent of the african american vote. there is a lot of room for improvement. i'd love to see donald trump try to win it. >> jeffrey, do you think he'll
5:15 am
reach that kind of outreach. >> i can't remember remember his name but i remember one pastor stepping to the microphone and saying look in my community we have problems with jobs. who better to create jobs than donald trump and that is why imfor him. absolutely. i think it is time to get rid of the stereotypes and get in there and talk to people about basic economics and help. >> on that note. jeffrey lord, margaret hoover, thanks so much. stay with us on cnn. we'll have results from today's super tuesday contests starting at 7:00 p.m. then back-to-back debates for you right here an cnn tomorrow night cnn will simulcast the univision debate in miami. and thursday night the last republican debate before the big primaries in florida and ohio. "new day" will be live from florida tomorrow and the rest of the week. michae michae michaela. breaking news out of northern california. a crowded commuter train jumping the tracks and plunging into
5:16 am
that creek outside of the san francisco. that train was traveling from san jose to stockton when it hit a tree on the tracks. >> reporter: this was a very scary situation. you have heavy weather move into the bay area and that is what caused this tree to fall down. it fell on the tracks and that is what led to this derailment. breaking overnight, a harrowing scene, a panic and chaos. a packed commuter train derailing 45 miles east of san francisco after hitting a downed tree on the tracks sending a train car full of passengers plunging into the creek. >> i realized something was wrong so i held onto the rails and right then the train flipped over. >> i was thrown out of my seat. >> all 213 aboard miraculous managing to make it off the train alive. officials saying nine injured,
5:17 am
four critically, but not life-threatening. >> chaotic. you can only imagine the terror and angst that went through their minds when that was going on. very fortunately nobody was killed in this instance. >> rescue workers fighting the creek's fast-moving currents throughout the night to pull riders to safety. >> it is scary. it is still scary. but, you know, somebody was watching over us tonight. everybody got out. and everybody is going to hopefully be okay. >> amazing no life-threatening injuries, chris. the ntsb is on its way to investigate that scene as you can imagine today there will be no service along that route. the massive u.s. air strike over the weekend in small la could be one of the deadliest attacks against terrorists yet. the pentagon says 150 al shabaab fighters were killed at the training camp where they were planning a large scale attack on
5:18 am
u.s. troops. al shabaab says the u.s. is exaggerating the number of casualties. >> two years since flight mh 370 disappeared off radar, vanishing without a trace. the search will go on with his country, hopeful that mh 370 will be found before the end of the year. time is running out for candidates chasing front runners. if hillary clinton sweeps mississippi and michigan today, will bernie sanders drop out? re avo: so he knows exactly when he can settle in and practice his big pitch. avo: and when craig gets his pitch down pat, do you know what he becomes? client: great proposal! let's talk more over golf! craig: great. client: better yet, how about over tennis craig: even better. avo: a game changer! secretary: your 2 o'clock is here. client: oops, hold your horses. craig: no problem. avo: la quinta inns & suites is ready for you, so you'll be ready for business. avo: the ready for you alert, only at laquinta.com. craig: laquinta!

i'm in charge of it all. business expenses, so i've been snapping photos of my receipts and keeping track of them in quickbooks. now i'm on top of my expenses, and my bees. best 68,000 employees ever. that's how we own it.
5:21 am
5:22 am
it is super tuesday two. voters in michigan and mississippi casting votes in the democratic race. four states in play for republicans. pressure mounting on marco rubio to make a move or pull out. florida all important on several levels. let's discuss the big inflection points with former executive editor of the miami herald and dean of the college of communication at boston university mr. thomas feed ler. tom, good to have you with us. >> thank you. good to be here. >> all right. so the first big one. the "sun sentinel." yes the other papers have gone for rubio. the "sun sentinel" says we can't endorse any of them. the kind of person who should be running is not. we cannot endorse trump,
5:23 am
hometown senator rubio or cruz. good things about bush and kasich. what is the impact and how unusual is this? >> well the impact of newspaper editorials i think is diminished greatly. and the "sun sentinel," i don't mean to disparage at all. but the "sun sentinel" really is located in the heart of what would be the strongest democratic vote. so what it has to say on the republican side i think would be somewhat minimal. but i think it does reflect the feelings of a great many people there that is kind of a pox on all of their houses now. a little bit of i think lingering sentiment that jeb bush didn't make it that far. >> so fiedler says all but forget it. trump has a lead overall. cruz and rubio cutting into it. kasich also at 13%, four slices out of pie obviously makes for
5:24 am
bigger slices but look at the head to head match ups with cruz and rubio. a very different feel now. what do you make of these? >> i think the larger picture really to keep in mind is this race is narrowing very quickly. and by next tuesday i do believe it is going to be essentially all over. it will be a two person race. this next tuesday is going to be all or nothing for marco rubio. what is happening in florida over these last several days, what will happen in the next few days will determine that. but florida is -- you know, it is the powerball so far of these primaries. i think 10% roughly o of all the delegates come out of florida next tuesday if marco rubio doesn't win. >> the monmouth poll that just came out has him the closest since with a healthy margin of error. what does that mean? >> yes. what i think you have to watch
5:25 am
is that right now almost a million votes have already been cast in florida. so those are kind of outside. what you have now the two million that are going to be determined there. i really do think this is going to end up being a lot closer. as negative ads start to hit trump, i think the trump university things are going start to hurt. but at the same time donald trump is putting a lot of money into florida to go after marco rubio and ted cruz is going to go after marco rubio. so i think the idea really is, again, it just emphasizes that florida is all -- it is everything for marco rubio. he doesn't make it there, he really is done. and that is what ted cruz is hoping will happen. >> on the democratic side, hillary clinton and bernie sanders sit down at the fox town hall. you would have thought this was the chance for fox to unload on hillary clinton and it looked like they barely laid a glove on her with any of their hot topics. the e-mail, benghazi. what did you make of the non
5:26 am
event was it an olive branch or just reflection of reality? >> i think maybe a little both. i wonder if also that sanders wasn't beginning to feel that he had gone a little bit too far and may have pulled back. but yeah this was one of those we call a kiss your sister debates where neither side got very excited about what was going on. pretty friendly. >> yeah. tom. s good image there for us,- >> well i don't know if it's not. >> no it's not good any way you look at it. >> yeah. >> but the idea of his ghetto comment resonating and meaning something, is that overblown? >> right well, i don't know if it's overblown. i do -- i think what he was trying to say. give him a little bit of credit. i think what he was trying to say is that there is a white privilege that exists. but it certainly -- political
5:27 am
fact came and out showed there are -- >> don't you think bernie sanders knows that and it was more how he said something versus what he meant to say. >> it was how he said it, yeah. i think so. he can tend to be a little bit tone deaf. he comes across that way. again, i do think what he was trying to say and that is what i think you are suggesting is that for many white people they don't appreciate that there is a white privilege that they benefit from. he just didn't articulate that very well. and maybe i'm not articulating it very well either. >> no it's coming across. we're getting your point, tom. last quick take, do you think theres any chance marco rubio gets out before florida to preserve himself for the party? is there any plus or minus on that for him? >> i think the odds are at this
5:28 am
point are going to be that no he won't get out. but i fully respect that what they reported on has validity to it. there is a lot of people wondering what is marco rubio's future? he's out of the u.s. senate, what would be the future step? and i think there were people trying to protect him from, you know, a knockout, which would hurt him very badly going forward. >> he's a young man and he's certainly had a lot of star dust on him when this proces began. tom fiedler, thank you very much for your take. appreciate it. alisyn. well the jury awarding erin andrews 55 million dollars over that secretly reported nude video. what message are they sending and to whom?

super tuesday two is upon us and it could be a game-changer. i like your important stance that you are taking. with 188 delegates up for grabs in michigan and mississippi. hillary clinton has a chance to build an almost insurmountable lead over bernie sanders and donald trump then has a chance to distance himself from ted
5:41 am
cruz and possibly even knock marco rubio out of the race. what will happen? only one amiman knows. cnn's executive editor mark preston. >> the man who hates to smile. >> oh look at that he's smiling this morning. >> no gloves. >> mark, are we overselling it? is today make or break or does everyone hang in until next tuesday. >> it is make are ow break in the sense that it is going to be the lead in to march 15th for republicans. right now you have ted cruz who seems to be surging. marco rubio who is ebbing a little. donald trump is flat lining a little. and john kasich is trying to hold on for dear life. as we're going into tonight john kasich needs to do very well in michigan. in many ways his campaign is going to be staked on the mid west. that if he does well could kick him into his home state of ohio. 66 delegates next week in ohio. he needs to do well.
5:42 am
winner take all. marco rubio is getting a bit of a boost from romney. mitt romney is encouraging votes for marco rubio. but the twist on this is he's also saying you should vote for others as well. mitt romney is not endorsing marco rubio but he's saying anyone but trump. and looking at donald trump right now. donald trump still has the wind at his back and he's a front runner in this republican presidential nomination. but anyone who is the front runner, you have to consider they are going to flat line at some point and of course when you have forces in the republican party not only from the establishment side but you have the social conservatives now coming out against donald trump. and marco rubio got a bit of a bump on sunday. he won the all important state of puerto rico, territory of puerto rico but that is important in the sense he was able to pick up 23 delegates, say he got another win.
5:43 am
>> doesn't help him. >> and there are a lot of puerto ricans who live in florida of course and we all know he needs florida to stay in the race. >> it did not work. you're supposed to be prognosticating not like laying out every possibility. who finishes third in michigan? >> wow. ross perot. we don't know. >> what do you mean? that is what prognostication is. >> i know. but unlike a lot of people who do this for a living i don't go out there and give these definitive answers because listen, most people don't know. i think it's donald trump's to win. and kasich has a shot at coming in second place. but we've listen abbeen able to cruz but michigan voters aren't necessarily on his side yet. we'll have to see tonight. >> polls suggest hillary clinton will minimimy and mississippi.
5:44 am
what is the path forward for bernie sanders. >> the whole campaign now has been based on moving out of southwest and into the mid west. tonight they expect to lose mississippi. that is the south that is going to be hillary clinton's to win. but bernie sanders need to do well in michigan. there campaign is predicated on dealing with working class whites and making that 5i8 peel to them. >> what does well mean? give us a range? >> well listen, if he wins the narrative tomorrow is that bernie sanders has a strong will to survive. if it is a close, close second, it will be hillary clinton has won michigan, bernie sanders is hanging on for dear life as we head into the next super super tuesday on march 15th. but look, what bernie sanders has been saying is he can reach out to the industrial mid west and to voters in the west. and hillary clinton has done very well with african american voters. bernard has not. it is not that the narrative has been that african americans
5:45 am
don't like bernie sanders. i don't think that is necessarily the case. they just really know the clintons and really know hillary clinton. >> there is a new washington post poll that was out last hour and it was really interesting because it shows crump is the front runner as he has been for months. in the four person match up we gets 37% to the closest at 25%. but look at this trend line. look at what's happened over the past year. and this shows the trend. and you see the other three, cruz rubio and kasich really ticking up in the last month there. they are the bottom three lines. >> and if you follow all of them they will eventually be tied. >> and they will across and then what happens? >> then what happens? >> but you see donald trump ticking down there slightly in terms of the trend. >> well couple of things. one you have the alignment of the republican establishment and social conservatives against donald trump. also you have donald trump

believe is the best chance of finding the plane. and the standard phrase they use is we remain optimistic. we remain hopeful they will find it. if you look at that cost, 130 million. but that is less than half of the cost of one boeing 777. so this idea of this cost. >> does that put it into the perspective. >> yes i think so. and they really are no further in actually saying what happened. 1:19 in the morning on the 8 ott of march. no one knows. >> so there was a piece of the plane. it's been definitively decided, hasn't it?
5:52 am
>> the conspiracy theorists will say it was planted. but yes. the flapper has been found on reunion island. we don't know what it's revealed in terms of -- >> kwhat's taking so long? >> i think they are still coming to conclusions. look at the front end it is there are clean and the back is very jagged. the more pieces of wreckage they find over time if they do the better idea they will have how the plane might have come out of the air. >> how rare is it for the plane like this in modern times to go missing without ever figuring out what happened. >> there have been one or two instances 30, 40, years ago. >> technology advance -- >> this is the first major kind of incident of its kind, period. >> so we are two years in and i'm curious where we've gotten. a lot of conversations were had about the changes to airline
5:53 am
safety, to how the communications were processed, even on board the aircraft. those systems. what has -- has anything changed? >> yes. only yesterday on the university the union body announced some new rules. planes have to be tracked every 15 minutes. if the plane is in distress or going off course or something it has to send out a signal once a minute. there is ways in which you can have transmissions of the data on board. that hasn't been taken up by airlines so far? why not? >> some would say it is cost, some machinery. we don't really know. but the really awful part is that all the changes that have been introduced don't come in for another two years. >> why? >> just the way aviation works, chris. >> isn't it as easy as an app to make sure that a plane can never go missing again? >> no it is not. >> why? >> because this argument of find my phone. it is works when the phone is switched on, the cellular signal
5:54 am
you have registered with icloud and that is the way. that phone can't be found in the middle of the desert or ocean. >> but if you were equip it with a separate battery source and -- then it could be. it's just a phone. why haven't you richard quest? >> well planes have the potential technology. they just need to get 'round to doing it. the airlines need to commit. the aviation industry needs to commit. >> so there is a second piece found on mozambique 1300 miles away from where the first piece of the plane. >> in the same area though. still moving to the west. the difficulty with this piece is frankly, it's between madgaster, in the channel between madagascar and mozambique so it would have had to go around the top. so it is possible and certainly no one is writing it off yet.
5:55 am
>> congratulations. >> you are quoted frequently. it was chris cuomo who asked me richard will they ever find the plane? >> -- while these two fight it out. thanks richard. soo hi i'm kristie.
