7:05 am
hisedy when he gave acceptance speech in los angeles. i hope and pray that he goes all the way to the white house. he really can change things for the good of the country. host: did you watch the whole thing? and speaking for almost 30 minutes. caller: i listened to the entire party speech and then donald trump. it sounded like donald trump had too many drinks from the bar. explanation ofl how you can change the country. he was belligerent. i don't want him in the white house. host: what if it is hillary clinton versus donald trump? caller: hillary clinton is a politician. -- i don't want donald trump in the white house. if it came down to him and
7:06 am
hillary, i would vote for donald trump. host: you would? caller: because he's never been in office before. hillary clinton is part of the establishment and that is the problem. she is always late when it comes to getting on issues. she waits to see what everyone else is going to say and then gives an opinion. you cannot be successful if you are always jumping in late. people might be scratching their head because dirty sanders -- bernie sanders has been in washington for a couple of decades. he is a politician. caller: he is, but here's the thing -- he has never been in power. he has never had power. he has always voted correctly on the issues. he voted against going into iraq. he voted to regulate wall street. he doesn't have the power. that's why he hasn't been able to do anything in washington.
7:07 am
big money is not backing him. host: darrell in bedford, ohio. what do you make up your second? coming in caller: i was glad for john kasich. i don't think you could really go far because he put everything in new hampshire. i'm glad he did good. i'm really glad that trump won. -- it when you look at it is time for some but trump to be in office. he is not beholden to any big donors in the big money, wall street money. bush, they areb beholden by wall street.
7:08 am
by goldman sachs, big hedge fund money. does anybody really think ted cruz or jeb bush will do anything about china and trade or mexico and trade? of course they are not. -- youtrump is saying finally have someone in the white house that has no ties to big donors, has no one giving him money telling him what to do . when you look at the housing mortgage broker at the time, the housing crisis was caused by big money, multinational banks giving money sorepublicans and democrats anyone can get a loan.
7:09 am
if you've never paid a bill in your life, you would give them alone. -- a loan. crooked politicians were paid off. donald trump cannot be paid off t. host: how did you vote in 2012 and 2008? caller: in 2012, i voted for mitt romney. reluctantly so. i really wanted newt gingrich. for the populist message. he had a similar message to donald trump. host: in 2008? 2008, i supported mitt romney in the primary. it was so hard to support john mccain. i sat out that one. host: carmine in hamilton, and
7:10 am
montana. caller: good morning. i'm really happy for bernie sanders. happy that we finally have a having a decent government again. i love bernie sanders. a lot of people say he hasn't done anything. he's always been for the people. he's always had a consistent message and he is staying on it. he is not going to take money from big corporations. when you do, they own you. this dirty is not socialist and everything. ae root word is society he is democratic socialist. he's going to fix our roads and bridges and mass transit. he is going to fix our electrical grid.
7:11 am
he's going to do things for people, for society. that's what socialism is. mr. trump scares me. it pains me to see these kids in montana sent back from afghanistan. if mr. trump gets in there come he will get us in a war that she hates muslims and black people he hates muslims and black people and mexicans. the corporations took over everything isnow getting harder and harder for all of us to live. mr. bernie sanders will turn things around for us. he is a godsend. he has a good heart. he loves everybody, tried to put get theack -- he will
7:12 am
money from wall street. there are bad deals every day. he wants a tax on every one of them. that will put people in schools. my kids have huge school bills. and it is solive hard for everybody because people like mr. trump that she is the 1%. -- he is the 1%. he is so rude, nasty. host: take a look at this exit poll out of new hampshire. voters in themary granite state support banning muslims from entering the u.s. 66%. it comes to the democratic race, the washington times this morning with this headline. clinton counts on nevada jackpot
7:13 am
, feeding sanders allure -- fading sanders allure. according to an internal memo obtained by abc news, mrs. clinton's campaign manager dave this to many reporters -- gave .his to many reporters
7:14 am
this an internal memo from the clinton campaign. the campaign is trying to build opposition to shore up the latino vote.
7:15 am
mark in philadelphia. democrat. you are on the air. caller: good morning. i was not really surprised by who won. i was just shocked at the beating hillary took. i have to admit that that really surprised me. host: why? caller: not only did she lose by so much when the polls started closing, she was outperformed by bernie sanders with women. isn't that supposed to be her firewall? women voters and bernie sanders beat her with women voters. i don't know. i think hillary has to retool the selection or something. -- this election or something.
7:16 am
host: take a look at this number. .onest and trustworthy 91% of voters who said that was important cast their vote for sanders. 5% for hillary clinton. when it comes to the right experience, 85% said hillary clinton has that. take a look at this number. can win in november, 79% said that is hillary clinton in a general election. what do you think of that, mark? caller: go figure. even with all those numbers except the trustworthiness, yetary wins them all and the bernie sanders still beat her handily. what do you think of
7:17 am
nevada and south carolina coming up? caller: i don't know. i would think hillary has the advantage, but who knows? said,rge h.w. bush is sanders has the big mo, right? host: adam in durham, north carolina. republican. caller: good morning. i guess it's kind of an odd situation for me. looking at all this come missing what's happened. -- seeing what's happened. obsessed withlly money. being so integral in the selection process. people placed in positions of power are being put their money. put there by money.
7:18 am
i've been a republican for a long time. they really tricked me. they really tricked me into believing that they were for me because of a few things. like antiabortion and that side of it. he tricked me into believing that they are representative of me. they are trying to get me to of lesssights on people opportunity. of folks who are damaging the system who don't want to get out and work. i see it in durham somewhat. turned myit where i sights on the wrong people and forgot about the small amount behind the scenes pulling the strings. i don't know if i will go for the republican, no matter who it is.
7:19 am
donald trump represents -- he is that 1%. ,f people don't pay attention he's been pulling the strings. host: what about him being outside the establishment, not being a politician? take a look at this graphic cnn put together. when it came to experience, john kasich got that vote. when it came to wanting somebody outside the establishment, overwhelmingly that was donald trump. caller: i don't think he is really outside the establishment. he has been inserted into many years. he's been donating to political campaigns come every person on that stage as received money from him. just because he has not had a n elected title does not representative of
7:20 am
establishment goals. kasich, that guy right he comes right out and says it, billionaires are not the problem. money is not the problem. this.let me ask you would you vote for bernie sanders? certainly -- this is sad to say because i've been a republican for a long time, but i think i will have to vote for bernie sanders. to the new listen york billionaire donald trump last night in new hampshire thinking the voters there. [video clip] >> he wants to give away our country, folks. we are not going to let it happen.
7:21 am
i don't know where it's going with bernie. luck, butm a lot of we are going to make america great again. we are going to do it the old-fashioned way. we are going to be china, japan, mexico. mexico,china, japan, all these countries taking so much of our money away from us. on a daily basis. it is not going to happen anymore. we have the greatest people .ight now in the world they call me all the time, they want to be involved. we have political hacks negotiating our deals with billions and billions of dollars. we are going to use the finest business people in the world. we are going to do something so good and so fast and so strong in the world is going to respect us again, believe me. [applause] to --are going
7:22 am
"usa"]chanting do we love our country? host: we are getting your reactions to those wins and losses. what does it mean for the rest of the candidates and for the primary process going forward? there are the phone numbers on your screen. we are spending all three hours of the program getting your reaction to this moving forward from new hampshire. joining us on the phone is reid wilson, chief political consultant -- let's begin with the democrats. independent voters in new hampshire make all the difference. where did they go and how did they vote? did they go to the democratic primary? gut: i hate to say this, but
7:23 am
is morecratic side interesting because bernie sanders one by such a significant margin. independents made up a third of the democratic electorate. those voters broke heavily toward bernie sanders. 32% voted for sanders over hillary clinton. first-time voters chosen sanders 70%-20 1%. 21%.% to host: was this a message? guest: absolutely.
7:24 am
one i think the clinton campaign really needs to pay attention to. who said thatrs having a candidate who was honest or trustworthy was the most important issue, sanders 5%.91% to these are problems for the clinton campaign. these are problems for a candidate who is not connecting with voters the way her opponent is. these are messages the primary voters are looking for something different and hillary clinton is not offering it to them. among the voters who said they wanted someone electable, she won 79% of the vote. democratic and
7:25 am
honest and trustworthy and cares about people like me, she . -- she got dumped. host: when came to those issues come economy, jobs, bernie with new hampshire voters. he got 59% of those voters. republicans,nt for too. what does this say about all the candidates? the economy is still issue number one in the minds of voters. after the terrorist attacks in paris and san bernardino last in thee saw a spike number of people who said national security issues were the top concern. not as big that was a concern.
7:26 am
it was their third highest issue after the economy and government spending. we are once again headed towards about the economy. which is a bit of a surprise given the state of the economy. it is the underlying reason as to why bernie sanders and donald trump are doing well in the first place. swath ofa huge american voters who think they are being left behind by this recovery. this recovery does not include them. the billionaires on wall street are getting ahead while they are being left behind. of thes fueled the rise anti-political establishment anger that has lead to things like donald and bernie sanders winning the new hampshire primaries. it looks again like we will mitigate that come november.
7:27 am
one interesting point along those lines, among voters who the mostlity was important issue, bernie sanders 70% of the vote -- won the vote. let's talk about the republican side. a little more interesting. tell us about it. there were more candidates who were competitive. this, therelook at are a couple leads here. there are voters who say they wanted a candidate who shares their values. -- ted cruz and john kasich tied. centrist,h the more
7:28 am
traditional republican. donald trump came in a distant third at 13%. among the voters who said they wanted a candidate who tells it like it is, donald trump won 65% of the vote. this is because of the campaign between those who are politicians and those who want to completely blow up the system and try something entirely new. that was really on display last night in new hampshire. 47% of the republican primary voters said they felt betrayed by republican candidates. 15% of democrats said the same thing about their own democratic politicians. feelss a party that betrayed -- host: what does this mean for
7:29 am
governor jeb bush, senator ted cruz, senator marco rubio, who were within a percentage point other going into these primaries and caucuses? guest: there were three likely outcomes last night. mounting his post-iowa come back. jeb bush completing the turnaround some people saw happening. the dark option was horse, john kasich among these professional republicans and consultants, the establishment class, the people who want to nominate somebody who is not donald trump or ted cruz, that was the worst possible outcome for them.
7:30 am
john kasich campaign does not have a lot of money. will not be able to grab the mantle of the establishment candidate who can sweep through south carolina and nevada and a bunch of southern states on march 1. bad thing for those establishment republicans because it means jeb bush and marco rubio are fighting for fourth place. now, they enter south carolina .n a weakened state we've already seen both sides pouring a huge amount of resources into south carolina. and more to me like only one of those two candidates is going to come out of the south carolina primary. wasou thought new hampshire getting nasty, south carolina is a state where political dirty tricks do you good. it's what you expect. stories -- all the
7:31 am
all the reasons people hate politics will be on display in south carolina. where we've already seen the bush campaign circulating talking points as to why john kasich is not the right candidate. the polls only closed in new hampshire 12 hours ago. host: chris christie wanted to take down marco rubio. he put all his eggs in the new hampshire basket. he was not able to come out ahead of the florida senator. he is going home to new jersey to take a breath. he said he was going to go on to south carolina. think?u does he get out of this race? guest: he put so many of his hopes into new hampshire and it did not work out for him. when you are finishing in sixth
7:32 am
place behind people who barely campaigned in the state, does not speak terribly well to your chances going forward. every four years or so come in a crowded primary field, there becomes one candidate who acts as a block on another candidate. in 2008, more than one person went after mitt romney as much as they could. candidate allthe the other candidates like personally. chris christie played that role. the block on marco rubio came through very clearly. kristi was leaping over his podium trying to make a point
7:33 am
about rubio's leadership. he question rubio again and again over his robotic answers. he ended up playing the role of spoiler. in part four marco rubio. host: he says he will do better this saturday. there is yet another debate. thank you for your time this morning. go to morningconsult.com to find his reporting. thank you, reid wilson. maria in westville, new jersey. independent. caller: good morning. the fact that donald trump and bernie sanders did so well is a good first step toward the second revolution. after world war ii, the u.s. undertook to take britain's place in the world. we are building schools in afghanistan, people in detroit have the lap david buildings.
7:34 am
-- dilapidated buildings. what i'm saying is, we have to look at the fact that most of our people in our government are foreign agents. sheehan.aniel p he wrote a book called of the lost history of the united states and the rise of isis. -- either weerta are going to have a revolution at the ballot box or everybody will march on washington and make citizens arrests. it is a good first step and we need a tariff. host: look at reactions on twitter from our viewers.
7:35 am
kay in grand forks, north dakota. democrat. to 40 years come out country has been run by men. it is time for a woman. -- 240 years come out country has been run by men. would do better than any man in the white house. host: you are voting for hillary clinton? caller: all the way. i think it is funny that the democrats go by their first names and republicans go by their last. i wonder why that is. host: robert in north carolina.
7:36 am
republican. my question was -- i hear all these candidates talking about helping the middle class. people in north carolina who make aroun around d $10 an hour but that still don't make the middle class. why don't they talk about people who don't make middle-class wages? you have to be in an office somewhere to make middle-class. why have they not done anything with hillary clinton? get her out of the way. she should be indicted. host: turn the television down when you call in. brenda in london, michigan. independent caller. caller: good morning.
7:37 am
anyn't think there was surprise. the polls showed that bernie sanders and donald trump are going to win anyway. i'm surprised by john kasich. i don't think he even went to iowa. second-place showing doesn't mean so much. sanders on the other side, i don't know. he keeps putting down the establishment, but to me, he is the establishment. he is not middle-class, he is upper. he makes $190,000 a year. host: so, who are you voting for? caller: i am an independent. i am from michigan, hillary was here just this last weekend
7:38 am
because of the kids being poisoned with lead in flint. i think i will go with hillary. her whole life has been public service. of has always been a friend the children. i have to go her way. she is the best candidate out there. host: may i ask how old you are? do you feel a certain obligation to vote for hillary clinton as a woman? caller: it is not a gender thing. i am 65 years old. she has the experience. she was here this last weekend. she took time out of her new hampshire campaign. here is bernie on saturday night live. i can see where he is coming from.
7:39 am
i just cannot support him. i don't want my taxes raised. i worked and went to school at night for nine years to get my bachelors degree years ago. i'm sorry. maybe i'm being a bit selfish, but that is what i'm thinking about. mentioned how much resources these candidates put into new hampshire. vote in spent $1200 per new hampshire. 30 times more per vote then donald trump. after spending $2000 per vote in ohio, jeb bush and his super pac continued the spree, investing egregious amounts on ads.
7:40 am
marco rubio spent $508 per vote. of the more is one frugal spenders in the race when it comes to advise, spending buys, spending $40 per vote. carl in chicago. democrat. caller: how are you doing? host: i'm doing fine. thank you for asking. what are your thoughts? i think hillary is going to have to really sharpen her edge against bernie. the democrats understand that bernie is not a democratic socialist. he is not a democrat. he is an independent and decided to be a socialist. revolution is about all to
7:41 am
nothing. those people who are dissatisfied -- the points bernie is talking about, we can agree on those things. when you are going, a revolution, how are you going to have that happen? we've done things are party has wanted and when we've done those things we lost power in congress. democrats did obamacare without republicans. we lost the house. ,ecause those same democrats you cannot come out just during the presidential cycle and vote.
7:42 am
you did not vote in the midterms. you did not vote enough in your state and local elections. you have to look at this -- we are going to have a revolution? i know better. you said hillary clinton has to sharpen her edge against bernie sanders. what does it she need to do? caller: she needs to help the democratic party realize bernie wants to be the adopted son of the democratic party. use the nameto when it is a convenience. he is trying to use the democratic apparatus to ascend to the presidency, something he
7:43 am
could never do as an independent. which is what he has wanted to be his entire political career. clear thato make it that is where he is. i have no animosity towards bernie. doing, i don'ten want to step on him too hard because we want those supporters of his to support us. host: let's listen to the former secretary of state in her own words, how she phrased last night's loss. [video clip] >> now, we take this campaign to the entire country. we will fight for every vote in every state. [applause] >> we will fight for real solutions that make a real difference in people's lives. when i started this campaign last spring, i knew we were facing profound challenges as a country. the way too many things were
7:44 am
going just was not right. it is not right that the kids i met in flint on sunday were poisoned because their governor wanted to save money. it is not right for a grandmother here in new hampshire or anywhere else to have to choose between paying rent and buying medicine because prescription drug company increased the price 4000% overnight. it is not right that a cashier i met in new hampshire is paid less than her son doing the same work even though she has been on the job for more years. people have every right to be angry. are also hungry, hungry for solutions. [applause] >> what are we going to do? is the fight we are taking
7:45 am
to the country. what is the best way to change people's lives so we can all grow together? who is the best change maker? host: hillary clinton in new hampshire after losing to bernie sanders. carl's advice. she needs to sharpen her edge. the new york times has some advice for both candidates. new hampshire is a drop in the bucket. sandy in dayton, ohio. independent. caller: good morning. of thery tired establishment. i was leaning toward hillary. but now, i believe in donald trump. tried to squeeze out
7:46 am
the union a few years back and people rebelled here in ohio. i don't trust him. i don't think he is a man we can have an office. i don't agree with everything donald trump wants to do. for the most part, he has built things. i think he can do more than build hotels. he can take care of our infrastructure. he will be very strong on education. also for health care. if he would get in office, he would work well with everyone. host: do you think you would even work with unions? that is your criticism toward governor kasich. you trust donald trump when it comes to unions? caller: he will come around. there is more to donald trump and what he shows. ofwill get the backing th the establishment and people will work with them.
7:47 am
it will be interesting to see who he picks for a vp. he could very well pick someone like john kasich. host: would that be a good move? ?icking at an insider caller: i don't know if there is anyone else out there who is not establishment who he would pick. it would be very interesting to watch. i like hillary a lot. i feel like she doesn't have a good message out there for women. madeleine albright's comments did not help with younger people, either. host: what about marco rubio? caller: no way. i don't like him. he has a lot of experience to gain. definitely none of the bush's.
7:48 am
rubio taking the blame for what happened. he said it was because of his performance in saturday's debate. he will get another chance to do better this saturday in south carolina where there will be another debate. headline in the washington post this morning. senator'sof florida good showing in iowa. he hasn't scheduled campaign stops wednesday with tim scott and trey gowdy. -- he hasn't scheduled campaign stops wednesday with tim scott and trey gowdy -- he has scheduled campaign stops wednesday with tim scott and trey gowdy. [video clip] >> i want you to understand something.
7:49 am
our disappointment tonight is not on you. it is on me. i did not do well on saturday night. that will never happen again. [applause] rubio's strategy going forward, the washington post says this. strategists bracing for a campaign they think will come down to who can accumulate the most delegates. it is all about the delegates
7:50 am
come as we've said before. trump getting most of those delegates last night in new hampshire. 10 delegates from new hampshire going to him. upse next contests coming where it is winner take all in north carolina, etc., or is much more to come. 14 caucuses coming up -- primaries and caucuses coming up in february. david a los angeles, california. independent. go ahead. caller: good morning. i'm finding this really fascinating. there was this book, what is wrong with kansas? people don't vote for their own best interests.
7:51 am
that is what we are experiencing today with trump and sanders. manifestation that kansas the ways in to which the establishment have andpulated and have played completely deceived the vast majority of the american people. now, what has to happen, the placesf you would, that democratic and partisan politics where we are inter-personalities that in actuality, if we look at it, we will see that our own establishment is the so-called ministerial leaders or elected politicians -- and situation in the black community -- mary pointed it out.
7:52 am
about the need for resolution. you have this democratic brother who called in trying to recommend that clinton sharpen her game up. i would submit to him, if he would go back and really look into the actual policies of the clintons as it relates to black people versus the industrial , go and seeall that what obama and clinton did with the haiti relief fund. these are professional con people. host: ethel in stone mountain, georgia. democrat. caller: longtime listener, first time caller. host: what do you think? caller: i have a couple of
7:53 am
things i wanted to say. are all given common sense and a lot of people will not use their common sense. common sense can take you a long ways. a lot of the folks who vote for trump and bernie sanders, the people voting for them -- i'm voting for hillary. i know her. she gives me no surprises. once you know somebody, there's nothing she could do that would surprise me. i don't know why these people trump has been married three times, he marries young girls, he puts down women. he has no money, a lot of credit. he don'tdid this -- have any money. he got credit.
7:54 am
they are letting him have it on credit. when he gets to the white house, he wants to get money. these fools are going right along -- i would not let my kitty cat but for him. -- a vote for him. host: many in pittsburgh, massachusetts. -- vinny. caller: good morning. flabbergasted that all these folks went for a socialist. i cannot believe that the united states of america -- my son is a marine. hillary left of these men in benghazi. i can't understand why anybody would vote for her. i don't think she is qualified. host: we will talk to mike pompeo, republican from kansas. he sits on the committee
7:55 am
investigating what happened in my ghazi. he will be on the show tomorrow. -- in benghazi. host: i will tune in to watch it, that is for sure. i saw a bumper sticker the other day that said hillary should be in jail instead of running for president. if any other american did anything like she did with the servers and leaving those guys behind, they would be in jail. why isn't she? ,ost: your point on benghazi yesterday on capitol hill, there were two hearings on worldwide threats. theof them was before senate intelligence committee. -- theicials testified director of the national intelligence committee testified saying libya is becoming a breeding ground for isis. he went through all the different terror threats that exist.

8:05 am
for -- he doesn't have constituents as far as black people. he has a voice because he is on radio stations. a lot of people in the black community could care less about al sharpton and jesse jackson. and the naacp guy who supported bernie. host: let's hear from bernie, a republican in new york. caller: good morning. i have been a republican all my life and never voted for a democrat. under no circumstances, including at the point of a gun, what i vote for donald trump -- would i vote for donald trump. remember president eisenhower, truman, roosevelt,
8:06 am
abraham lincoln -- can you imagine any of these people talking the way this man speaks? and not only what you say, but how you say it is very important. is this how he's going to talk to putin or merkel? its man is so transparent, yet this country cannot get past him. it is just unbelievable. why do we need polls prior to an election? internal polls can help a candidate direct themselves, but polls influence people when they shouldn't be. says shoulddidate affect how they are going to vote. host: let's talk about that when
8:07 am
it comes to south carolina because they are next for the republicans. take a look. this is happening on february 20. on february 27, south carolina democrats will vote in the primary and there are 59 delegates at stake. joining us on the phone is andy shain, a political reporter for the state in south carolina. let's talk about polls. what were they looking like? were there any credible ones heading into south carolina? these think last night's win in new hampshire change those numbers? guest: at the moment, probably no. there have been a number of polls. our last polls were in the past 10 days.
8:08 am
donald trump has been leading in the polls in south carolina since august. he has led all but one poll. it has been all trump all the withhere in south carolina ted cruz in solid second. bush clashing further place -- for third place. ben carson has a lot of support in the state. host: who has the best ground game and what do you need in south carolina? that ci'm being told rubio and cruz have very good ground game. ted cruz is using the same
8:09 am
operation he used in iowa where he targeting social conservatives and evangelicals. about the upstate, the northwest section of our state is the home of our evangelical base. but they are all over the state. they make up six out of 10 republican voters in the state. looking at ted cruz's numbers, he's finding them everywhere. area in getting contributions is charleston. it tends to be a little more moderate. the object of the game is to beat trump. he certainly is attracting very large crowds, filling arenas. he's basically taking a lot of the time in the media as well.
8:10 am
he lost evangelicals in iowa. that the voting bloc for ted cruz is what put him over the top there. is that what you will be watching for? right now, they are for donald trump. wasve not met a pastor who for trump at the moment, but they have spoken to their congregations who are for trump. pastors tend to either be supporting ted cruz or leaning towards ted cruz. surpriseen part of the of trump's success in south carolina that he is doing so well with evangelicals. he has had a couple flubs involving the bible including
8:11 am
talking about 2 corinthians. especially with a candidate like ted cruz who has been hitting these groups very hard for two years now, it's been a bit of a surprise. host: marco rubio is heading from new hampshire. events with senator tim scott, representative trey gowdy. two endorsements for him. will that persuade voters? guest: i think it will help. it certainly gives him credibility in a way. tim scott and trey gowdy were elected in the 2010 tea party sweep as was senator rubio. if you are a fiscal conservative who wants to see washington changed, these are the tea party
8:12 am
backingour party senator rubio. that helps. with representative gaudi heading the benghazi committee, he is popular in our state. he will be hosting one of senator rubio's events later on today. host: both senator ted cruz and marco rubio are coming back to washington for a vote on north korea. south carolina democratic primary is not until february 27th. nevada will go before. what is it looking like for the democrats in south carolina? talk about their operations. guest: it's the opposite of new
8:13 am
hampshire. hillary clinton has done very well in south carolina. she is leading senator sanders by 30 points. she has a couple things going for her. very hard 2008 here against barack obama and has a lot of relationships here. south carolina is going to be the first state with a majority minority bloc of voters. african-americans that are very much overwhelmingly going for secretary clinton. senator sanders will have a lot of momentum, but he's going to have to do a lot of work in south carolina to catch up. he has a good operation here. he has been working very hard to also win over african-american voters and working with clergy.
8:14 am
he has a couple weeks to try to overcome this large deficit. host: she got more delegates in i'll. -- iowa. she lost in new hampshire. south carolina primary different? it depends on how much -- how dominant it's going to be. she's -- she really needs a large victory. host: and its winner take all. callerguest: that's correct. it's also for the national perception. iowa was a squeaker. new hampshire, she was expected to lose because it's the state next to bernie's.
8:15 am
degree, south carolina could be the beginning of a steamroll for her. at the same time, senator sanders has gotten a lot of money that will keep them in the weeksven if he has some where he is not doing as well. here in south carolina, senator clinton has a very good operation. she will probably spend a lot of time here. . president clinton is coming on saturday. she's not taking this for granted even though she already has a 30 point lead. host: andy shain, political reporter with the state. you can follow his reporting on the ground. thank you, sir.
8:16 am
let's get back to your calls. regina in virginia, independent line. what do you make of what happened in new hampshire? caller: i thought it was pretty good. except for bernie sanders. people don't realize that socialism is baby communism. not a socialist country. this is not a communist country. this is a free country. and if bernie sanders gets in, he will start taking everything. our gun rights, he will tear the constitution, he will shred it. let's start with our democrats. hillary clinton, her scandals go back to whitewater.
8:17 am
all the way back to whitewater. do we all remember that? i do. then, benghazi. probably before that there was more scandal. remember the lawyer that killed hisself? host: so regina, who are you going to vote for? caller: who am i going to vote for? i'm going to vote for trump. and i'll tell you why. host: ok. caller: a lot of people think that he will be vicious to world leaders. he's not that type of man. he is a businessman. host: ok. olivia in birmingham, alabama. a democrat. caller: good morning.
8:18 am
i hope you give me time to explain myself because you always cut me off. i want to say this. i agree with madeleine albright. there is a special place for women that don't support other women. i'm going to give you my reason why. literally mean that and people need to stop getting offended by that but it is true. i'm going to make this point. i noticed that a lot of white women are against hillary. black women are standing up for hillary, especially single black women. we know the struggle. i'm not going to say -- some women have not been through the struggle. do they realize that, without hillary, madeleine albright, harriet tubman, women that go way back that they would not be in the position that they are in right now? the women know that we are still the lower moneymakers on the totem pole. the women notice that.
8:19 am
we go through so much discrimination. look how they scrutinize hillary. hillary's pantsuit, hillary's hair, hillary's makeup. come on. do you know the outrage in america if hillary had said what donald trump said on the podium? sexism is rampant. and i want to make this point to democrats. bernie sanders is not progressive. those are part of the democratic party. they got very angry with president obama because they wouldn't -- wanted certain things to pass that he didn't do. those are people that are against my president. black people, we are not going to take it. we are not going to take it. host: harry in maryland, a republican. caller: how are you doing this
8:20 am
morning? host: i'm doing great, how are you? caller: doing fine. a lot of snow. i have to admit, i was amazed with bernie sanders. i'm a republican and i don't agree with anything he says. but he is what he is. i think that with voters that support him, they see him as somebody who is going to stick to his principles and what he says he will try to accomplish. i don't like the idea of socialism, but i have to admire somebody that sticks to their guns. the clintonsrld, were always known for sticking your finger in the air, see which way the wind blows. i have not figured out whether hillary is moderate, a socialist, a liberal. she jumps around so much. the one thing about this man that you can say is that -- what he states, he said 10 years ago,
8:21 am
15 years ago, he has not changed. he has just caught the public eye. and i have to say he ran a good clean, fair campaign. host: let's listen to what the vermont senator had to say after his win in new hampshire last night. >> democrats and progressives win when voter turnout is high. [applause] republicans win when people are demoralized and voter turnout is low. [booing] to the, we serve notice political and economic establishment of this country that the american people will not continue to accept a corrupt campaign finance system.

[applause] want to take this opportunity again to congratulate secretary andton and her organization support is for waging a vigorous campaign. i hope in the days ahead we can continue to wage a strong, issue oriented campaign and bring new people into the political process. [applause] but i also hope that we all remember, and this is a message not just to our opponents, but
8:23 am
to those who support me as well that we will need to come together in a few months and unite this party and this nation. because the right wing republicans we oppose must not be allowed to gain the presidency. host: bernie sanders with the n, 60% to 38%. let's take a look at the exit polling numbers. by age, it's one of the sharpest divides in the race. bernie sanders support is strongest among young voters. 18-29.s that the but hillary clinton wins 65 and over. won in iowa.t she bernie sanders winning almost
8:24 am
every demographic in the state of new hampshire. jim in west virginia, independent line. good morning. what do you think? caller: let me start by saying i'm an honorably discharged veteran. i took an oath to support and defend the constitution of the united states. this country is not a democracy. it's a constitutional republic. this is what these politicians fail to realize. i would not vote for hillary clinton period. she has known about fast and furious, whitewater, benghazi, now the e-mails on her personal server that she's dragging her feet on. ok. bernie sanders, he's got some good ideas. but i don't think i want to live in a socialist country. host: ok. caller: and donald trump, he's
8:25 am
just rude and of noxious. he knows nothing about the law. the way i understood it when i read it is you have to know little bit about the law to be able to even run for president. the people that i would vote for kasich, ted cruz, john or jeb bush. host: we covered all those candidates last night in their speeches. if you want to hear what they had to say to the voters in new hampshire before they had to south carolina, you can go to c-span.org. ben carson did not give a speech. he did send out a release saying that after several stops, dr. carson will be en route to south carolina. he did not give a speech but he continuing in the
8:26 am
race. governor chris christie of new jersey said originally that he would go on to south carolina. he bought an airline ticket. instead he said last night after his disappointing finish, unable to get ahead of senator marco rubio, that he would go home to new jersey and think about what's next. george in maryland, a democrat. good morning to you. caller: good morning. host: go ahead. caller: i'm really glad about bernie sanders winning. i think it's really important for people to see his ideas and see him for what he's actually putting out there. he's the only one actually fighting for the people. a lot of these candidates are saying business or something that is not the people, not us who are actually working every day. it just points out the obvious.
8:27 am
they are obviously there for the money. they are here with some backing trying to get them push these ideas and make us less together as a people. we are the united states of america, but everybody is fighting. can we please see what is actually going on? host: bill, a republican. go ahead. caller: glad to be on here. bernie sanders, socialist. enough said. this is not a communist country, never has been, never will be. and hillary clinton. if people would just sit back and look at her record starting with her college days, protesting against the united states. whitewater. her and her husband up to their eyeballs in it. bought their way out. watergate where she was stripped of her license and fired for
8:28 am
line and false supplying. host: who is your candidate? caller: the one and only, mr. trump. this country needs to get away from politicians. they don't realize politicians are the one that have put this country in the poor shape it's in today. host: ok. connie, in missouri. independent. caller: my comment is, south carolina and the black vote. bill and hillary clinton have been in this process for over 30 years. they say they are experienced, but i'm telling you. i have black friends. they haven't done anything for the black people. and mr. obama didn't help them out, either. they are concerned, more concerned with immigration and they are saying what's fair,
8:29 am
then the people in the united states. and i'm telling you, a black people have suffered more. -- the black people have suffered more. their kids would rather have a job then be jailed. and i'm saying mr. trump, i am going for trump this time. think he can put the america back to work and close down illegal immigration. i'm telling you, the black people need to stop following. hillary says the same litany of things of what they're going to do. bill said the same thing. they are nothing but keeping the black people tied to the democratic party. host: how did you vote in 2012 and 2008? caller: obama. host: both times. caller: both times. and he has done nothing for
8:30 am
them. host: what about bernie sanders? caller: the reason he's getting so many votes -- i'm telling you, people are sick and tired of the establishment. and believe me, hillary is the establishment. bush is the establishment. host: ok. matt, in texas. caller: good morning. i'm a proud texas democrat. i want to make two quick points. i hear a lot of people like that last caller saying that trump is who you need on the republican side. i watched the celebrity apprentice. you are all getting bamboozled and i feel bad for you. i will support whoever our nominee is, but i've been concerned about hillary.
8:31 am
i'm not going to mention any particular issue, but she has been for an issue before and then against it. even pretend to change, he has been so consistent the whole time. for her to lose by 21 points, even if it is a neighboring state -- new hampshire voters should know him. you cannot downplay what bernie sanders did yesterday. host: why'd you like him? caller: he does not even pretend to change. someone mentioned the establishment. that is another thing that concerns me. we do need a revolution, we need to shake things up in washington. to the caller who said he is a socialist -- republicans control the house and the senate. that is not going to happen when he is elected president in 2017. host: front page of the washington times this morning. epa climate rules on hold.

sanders to hear senator and donald trump both won the primary in new hampshire. because he beat hillary and donald trump because he is the strongest candidate of both parties. the white house and he will shake, rattle and roll that place. that is what washington needs. they need somebody that will stand strong and shake them until their brains rattle. that is my feeling. int: steve, democrat robert's bill, missouri. -- robertsville, missouri. caller: you hear trump talking
8:41 am
about all these things he is going to do, yet, he has no specifics about anything. he talks about winning, winning, winning. he rise me of charlie sheen when he was high on cocaine. that reminds me of charlie sheen when he was high on cocaine. he's talking about bringing minimum-wage jobs back from china. he will help the billionaires. i don't agree with everything with bernie clifton dollar an hour minimum wage -- $15 an hour minimum wage. we need universal health care. bush's tax cuts permanent. haven't they brought charges against hillary clinton and george w. bush?

i'm so tired of hearing trump shout and shout. nobody, even the media, nobody asked him substantive questions. he just says i'm going to do this and that, but not how. what is his record? does he know anything about our constitution? i'm all for ted cruz. ted cruz knows the constitution front words and backwards. does donald trump know about all the different offices in washington? i want someone to ask him some good questions, please. you call yourself a very conservative, somewhat conservative? caller: very conservative. int: the very conservatives new hampshire went to donald trump last night with 35%. caller: that is what surprises me. i'm shocked at how people -- are they not reading into donald's

8:46 am
winning over hillary clinton. that stopped me from supporting hillary clinton. she is the most experienced, knowledgeable, insightful candidate across the board. male or female. she has the tenacity to outdo and outlast all the candidates. hours ofone through 11 benghazi. kevin mccarthy was absolutely right. he let the cat out of the bag. republicans' plan to throw against hillary clinton this woman has tenacity. she is for women, the working poor. in flint,has happened michigan as a result of republicans being in charge,
8:47 am
making decisions. how do you respond to new hampshire voters in the exit polls when it comes to honest and trustworthiness, 91% said bernie sanders over hillary clinton with 5%? caller: all of it is political. it is politics. bernie sanders is a good man. i would like a clinton-sanders ticket. realistically, he has no chance of winning. the republicans will have a field day with him. this lady can do it. she has the knowledge and experience. look at obama. everything thrown against him monday one, the night of his win, republicans were meeting in
8:48 am
a restaurant saying how they were going to make him -- host: summer in washington. independent. what you think about what happened in new hampshire? caller: i think it is pretty typical with how people feel right now. people think bernie can bring some kind of change and trump can say what a lot of people are thinking. as an independent, i want to see more from our republicans and democrats about what they are going to do to fight global poverty. exportsive jobs products to developing nations. a lot of people who have received foreign aid from the our biggest trading partners like south korea and germany. povertyng people out of , it raises the money american
8:49 am
companies make and increases american jobs. development and diplomacy are part of the strategies for the u.s. national security. to me, it seems pretty logical that we would want to alleviate poverty in these developing nations so they can help boost u.s. jobs and help our national security. not very many of the candidates have spoken openly about what they want to do. host: what about hillary clinton's record as secretary of state and her push for foreign aid? caller: that is hillary. hillary, i definitely have a good feeling about. she's been very open about what she wants to do. bernie, i don't know some much, because he's been focusing on a lot of things at home. host: how old are you? caller: 25. host: and you are not feeling the bern?
8:50 am
caller: not quite yet. i'm not sure if i want to get trumped, either. it would be nice to see our republicans get out there with more of a comprehensive national security package and more interest in foreign aid. jerry in carleton, michigan. republican. caller: how are you? host: good morning. comment -- they say mr. rubio is too young. remember a time a long time come up untiltime he was killed, we had another young president. rubio, if christie would leave

8:52 am
because you guys do a great job. bernie sanders got the independent vote because the independents are trying to sway the election. they want bernie sanders to win because he would be so easy to beat. they did not vote for bernie sanders because of his policies or his grandiose speeches about i'm going to give free health care from the cradle to the grave every college to every child. give me a break. these young folks are being persuaded by the media. the media is taking on the republican talking points. host: we will see what happens next because it is far from over. you got 14 primaries and caucuses in the next three weeks.

8:57 am
robert says -- joe in winston-salem. independent. caller: this is the first time i've ever gotten into this whole situation. meitics is what has kept away from delving into what's going on. the reason i am involved now is because of the fact that there are some people toting words -- such as i'm not taking any of the lobbyists' money. like trumphe race and sanders, it is refreshing. not to hear the same old marco
8:58 am
rubio. politics to me has always been scripted. it has always been frustrating and boring. one person actually said i can't -- all thelong promises candidates make before they get into the white house. they really don't know what it's like. a lot of those promises are not able to be kept because of the fact that you don't know what is going to happen once you sit in the chair. congress runs the country. if you cannot get congress to go along with half of your promises, it appears your promises fall by the wayside. host: is that why you like donald trump not giving specifics? you just trust you can do a good job? it is tough to trust that anybody can do a good job. opinion, it would be nice start from scratch
8:59 am
and get people in congress and the white house that actually dig ditches. time who'ss one never done what i've done telling me it is going to take 10 minutes to do a certain thing. the have forgotten what it's like. it would be nice to get the average american in that sees what's going on. as opposed to people sitting high on their chair in whatever position they are in trying to fix something they have lost touch on. host: that is joe. lisa entry port, louisiana. republican. -- lisa in shreveport, louisiana. republican. caller: i'm going to be changing to democrat. because hillary clinton is not
9:00 am
for black people. she is for herself. the people she surrounds herself with -- look at david brock. he used to be a republican. he is terrible. he is disgusting. my father is getting together a bernie sanders division in new orleans. we are not ignorant down here. we know what he is up to. host: you have voted republican, but you will switch to democrat as a protest vote against hillary clinton and vote for bernie sanders? caller: i certainly am. none of the republicans are giving me any facts. i'm tired of them. hillary has done nothing. she is terrible. i will getlieve -- out and campaign for bernie sanders because my son is down
9:01 am
black he lives with a friend and he is in graduate school and he is working his tail off and he is tired. continueare going to here for the remainder of the program until 10:00 a.m. getting your thoughts about last night in new hampshire. what happened there with the wins and the losses and what it's looking like for the road to the white house going forward. it is a long way from over. there are many more contests coming up in february and march. tuesday, marcher 15, winner take all. a lot left in this race for the white house. including what's going to happen in the state of nevada. joining us on the phone is seth richardson from the reno gazette journal. with the nevada democratic caucus, which is taking place right after new
9:02 am
hampshire. it is not going to follow south carolina this year. they will go ahead of south carolina on every 20. -- february 20. these explain why. -- please explain why. guest: the caucuses are essentially a community meeting their. .- meeting there you come together and discuss your political views and breakup into groups of supporters and a lot of delegates go to the national convention. host: for democrats, what does that mean? how do they award delegates? guest: it depends on your precinct size. each will have a certain number of delegates allotted proportionally depending on the amount of supporters in each camp. right now, you have three camps you can choose from. those candidates will then go --
9:03 am
those delegates will go to the county convention and on to elect delegates to the state convention and national convention. the delegates that go to the national convention are the ones who will ultimately decide who the candidate is. host: what is it looking like for hillary clinton and senator intoe sanders heading february 20 caucuses? some are saying hillary clinton might have the advantage because of minorities. is that necessarily the case? guest: it has become the showdown state in the democratic party. most people i talk to feel the same way as well. we have a different voter makeup here. we have a large latino population which sanders had some trouble courting minority voters, but it seems like that -- it seems like you might beginning some traction there.
9:04 am
it will still be hillary clinton's state to lose. she's been here for a year. she has a massive ground game. she has banked a lot on this state. sanders come away with a victory? of course. anything could happen. host: what about the role of the union's there? thet: more interesting is culinary union has not endorsed a candidate yet. they have not endorsed a candidate unlike in previous years. then sitting out, we don't know how it's going to play out. maybe they will decide to endorse, but as of right now, they have not picked anyone. how that will affect voter turnout, activism at the ground
9:05 am
level, it is hard to say. host: have they endorsed hillary clinton? guest: i believe so. sciu has endorsed hillary clinton. guest: this takes place at 11:00 a.m. on a saturday. what are the benefits and downsides of that time? most: the benefit is people will not be working on a saturday. they will have time to actually go out. the process can take a while. if you have the time to go out and go through this whole process -- it is not like a primary where you can run in and vote in 10 or 15 minutes. it does take some time. the diehards will be able to get out there. the downsides come i have not say anything about a downside.
9:06 am
host: one pundit noted the youth vote could be a problem. bernie sanders drawing on the youth vote in iowa and new hampshire. a.m. on a saturday might not be suitable for some young people. demographicl that be a factor in the nevada caucuses? guest: we've seen it be a factor in iowa and new hampshire. we have two large universities here. nevadad university of reno. so nebulous,e is it is hard to say whether they will turn up or not. that is a big question mark. host: let's talk about republicans. that caucus will be taking place on february 23.
9:07 am
30 delegates at stake. mitt romney won in 2012 and 2008. -- whoahead of right now is ahead right now? guest: it is hard to say we've had zero polling in the state. we don't have any numbers to give a sort of a glimpse into who is supporting home. , tedas ground games here cruz has a large organization here. marco rubio has an organization here. jeb bush has a large organization as well. he got into the state early. host: what are the key demographics for republican voters in nevada? guest: republican voters in , it is pretty consistent with republican voters across the country. there is no real difference in the state. host: what about religious
9:08 am
voters? guest: we don't have as many evangelicals as iowa, that is for sure. host: what will you be looking for in the democratic caucus and republican caucus? guest: what will be interesting in theee the iowa tie large new hampshire victory bolstering bernie sanders in the state or is hillary's organization in the state helping her gain a large victory here. , this ise republicans gearing up to be a showdown state. we could have three different winners in three different states by the time we get to nevada. seeing who comes away with the momentum going into both republicans going into tuesday and the democrats going into south carolina, it could change the dynamics of the race. host: seth richardson.
9:09 am

9:31 am
because the first thing he says he wants to do is abolish the irs. i think the irs has some faults but at least people can take deductions. is, he's trying to come up with some kind of bizarre tax plan that will change many things. sanders wants to break up banks and we already had deregulation of the banks and begging up the banks. i think we should just leave the banks alone. we have gone too far with that already. i think marco rubio is a good candidate because he is a good christian and he likes veterans. his brother is a green beret. i think his plan for america's very good. withnk he will help people health insurance that is very high i talked to people who are being extremely high health
9:32 am
insurance and i don't like trump because the rate of two women. i had a fight with the guys because the cap swearing in front of my daughter's. i don't like it. i think he disgraces women. i like him at all. thank you very much. we will move on to mike in california, a democrat. caller: hello. i am ashamed, i'm not ashamed, i am judgmental and i'm trying to work on that. i have to be the best gender, the best race, the best religion, the best country -- i am so wonderful. christianity says we are all falling short. what makes this perverted moneygrubbing crap of a legal system is selling you that there

9:34 am
are looking out for their own self. i don't like ted cruz come i don't like marco rubio, and i don't like hillary clinton. that's all i want to say. host: did you vote democrat the last two times? caller: the first time i did. four years ago i did not. 2008 you voted for barack obama or hillary clinton the primary? caller: for obama. host: and then president obama and the general election? caller: yes. host: in 2012 you set it out? you didn't vote at all? caller: yes. host: why not bernie sanders. he's too far to the left. this country has to stop giving away free stuff. you have all generation of young people and a whole generation of
9:35 am
middle-aged people who don't want to work because this country is giving away free stuff. we were brought up to work. don't own anything, if you get out and work for it, don't sit around and wait for the government to give you a handout. what you consider yourself conservative a little bit? caller: yes, i am. host: ok, an independent there in south carolina. alabama, a republican, welcome. caller: thank you. i really enjoyed your last caller. i agree with him. walter cronkite must be rolling over in his grave. when you look at the media coverage and the way they are handling this, a clown face on a presidential candidate as though they are holding their breath and stomping their feet because
9:36 am
they support did not get the nod. it's an embarrassment. they should be informative, reporting the facts. and reporting what the american people decide what not influencing. host: in other news in washington -- gene in partridge, illinois, independent, good morning, you are on the air. caller: good morning and thank you, great show. i used to be republican. moved tond i have center us present being independent and we would support
9:37 am
donald trump. i think he will be able to galvanize this country and bring everyone together on both sides. he will bring people together. retired law enforcement and a vietnam combat veteran. i figure it's bring in someone fresh clothes nothing to anybody and mr. trump will come in and sit down. he is a businessman and needs -- a knows what needs to be done on the foreign and domestic side. there are many things that need to be done and corrected and i think mr. trump will give us that extra footing. host: who is your second choice? knew you were going to ask that my second choice would be marco rubio. i like his cut of the jib. he came from the poor side. he does not have a silver spoon. he will not run for reelection on the senate side he is putting his all into this. i think it will be a great effort to clean house in the
9:38 am
white house. host: what about the criticism that has been launched against him by governor chris christie that he is robotic and he keeps repeating the same memorized speech and line? caller: right, i watched that. i think mr. rubio is young and made a mistake. is hee should have done should have come out and admitted his mistake. never defend a poor position. host: he did last night. did you hear his speech last night? he said it will never happen again. caller: correct, maybe he listened to me, i don't know. host: here you in the copy shop at your friends, thanks. the front page of "the wall street journal" -
9:39 am
gloria in north carolina, democrat, what is your analysis? democrat always voted
9:40 am
but i cannot vote for hillary this time. she's got too much baggage going on and i cannot vote for sanders because he is promising the college kid something they can never get. he knows it costs the taxpayers trillions of dollars to put all the people into college colors that want to through school. host: what will you do? caller: i will vote for donald trump because i feel need fresh blood. i cannot vote for the bush because there's so many in there already. bush broke the country. wh broke our country and obama stepped into a fun it's messed and he could not possibly get it straightened out. host: you are calling on the democratic line, have you always voted democratic? caller: i have always voted democrat. host: you voted for president obama in 2008 and 2012?
9:41 am

9:42 am
clinton after his behavior as the president of this country and then stands up on the podium and expects our respect. about the way the donald trump has carried himself? caller: i am not impressed with a lot of it. donald trump owes no one anything. as far as all the donations. haveest of the candidates taken all of these donations and all this money and made promises and can carry them out as president if they should become president. trump, i cannot believe i'm saying this, but we need a president who is not a politician. believe you you can't believe you're saying that? caller: because i voted every year. i'm 85 years old and i voted every year and usually democrat. i just cannot stand all this mess.
9:43 am
i admire bernie sanders for what he has done from a very small start and he did not receive huge donations. i respect him for that and yet he has done well. -- you like ask you donald trump because he does not oh anybody anything. what if michael bloomberg, aother wealthy man, spends billion dollars and jumped into this race and he says i don't oh anybody anything question mark caller: he is too late. if he were interested, he should have been talking all this time. these candidates have worked very hard. host: a former democrat, 85 years old. she is switching to republican and voting for donald trump. mckinney, texas, david, an independent, good morning. caller: good morning and thanks for taking my call. i am a first-time caller and watch her.

9:45 am
reagan. i was still young and i remember i had friends saying they would move to canada if he was elected it reminded me so much of them. -- when you remember the last time you paid this much attention to a campaign? caller: geez, it has been a long time. in 2008, i got a little bit involved with the obama and the change and the open all that stuff. since 1980, i would say. since ronald reagan. host: did you take note of what channel you are on so you can continue to watch c-span? caller: yes, it's two channels down from the local fox station. host: ok. caller: i love your show and i will continue watching.

host: please call in again. next up a republican, fred, good morning. caller: good morning. host: how are you? caller: i'm doing fine. i cannot believe how the country is trying to embrace socialism. i want to get back to how this started. early on, our men and women returning from foreign wars, they were protesters that used to spit on them. they are now liberal leftist professors and teachers and they are teaching our kids that socialism is great, the opposite of what our forefathers fought for. they are teaching that socialism is a great thing and the government will take care of you to . castro, china, north korea, iran, and they are socialist and it does not work. we're all going to pay for this.
9:47 am
it's not just the 1%. host: who is your candidate? i like the outsider, donald trump. we need -- a change. it's time to put down the political correctness and try to straighten out this country. host: who is your second choice? caller: it would probably be ted cruz. after eightieve years of obama and his european socialism that people would think about voting democrat. one last thing on the zika virus, i heard it was a government project that was created to combat another virus that got out of hand. now it is biting us in the butt. maybe you can find out about that. host: we will research that. there is a press covers at 115 p.m. eastern and you'll hear from the top doctors on the zika

9:49 am
republican candidates, are talking about spending more and more and more money that we do not have to put us deeper and deeper and deeper in debt. i don't think our young people have been reading very much of our history. is not a career politician. we need to get rid of lots of career politicians and washington, d.c. i think mr. trump is the only choice we have. he is not going to be obligated to anyone. he has the concern of the country in his best interest. that's all i have to say, i thank you. to our want to point out viewers this piece in the huffington post --

independent candidate had no ties to the republican party and no ties to the democratic party. when you are out on the stump making a speech, those soundbites sound good but once you win the nomination and you are in, day one, i will appeal that is anthat, utter falsehood. there is no way on day one that any president can go in and repeal something. ok, what about michael bloomberg? could he be that person, that independent candidate? caller: i don't know because he comes from some form of political background. political baggage like hillary clinton and most of these other candidates. some of the things that donald trump says i agree with. i am for bringing jobs to america. dutyn was a 14 year active

those things. i'm really torn. i thought for certain i would support her in the beginning but i don't know now. host: she did mention at the last debate the democrats had. she brought it up. she said of his going to be an there should be an investigation into colin powell and condoleezza rice as well. she said the system is retroactively categorizing these e-mails as top-secret are classified. democrats will debate again thursday night and republicans will do so on saturday. danny in charlotte, north carolina, democrat. caller: good morning. i just have a couple of comments. concerning bernie sanders, people seem to think he is an outsider or newcomer. been inanders has
