8:00 am
look at. tonight we have nine oh we are going to get a lotof data and it's going to be fascinating to see what people are saying that they are coming out of the election. they've been accurate this time around . bill: watch the threshold in texas and georgia and see whether they can reach that mark. martha: we will be here all night long. we look forward to seeing you thenpickup happening now starts now. see you there everybody pick up . >> . jenna: it is the biggest test yet in this presidential race and voters across the country are heading to the polls on this super tuesday, already happening now. hope you're off to a good one so far i'm jenna lee. jon: i'm john scott millions of voters in 13 states and on us territory casting their ballots on a high-stakes day for candidates in both parties.
8:01 am
republicans creating for 599 delegates almost half thenumber needed to secure the nomination. on the democratic side, there are 865 delegates up for grabs. nearly 1/3 of the delegates needed for the nomination. as candidates make their final pitches to the voters >> there was an evening when we became great again. we are going to win at every single level . >> i personally believe america is and always has been great. what we need to dotogether is make america whole again . where we are working together, we are focused on mason making progress together. where we talk about issues, not insults. >> friends don't let friends vote for a con artist area. [applause] i am asking you for your vote. i am asking you for your vote. >> millions of people stand up
8:02 am
and fight back tomorrow. >> tomorrow i will vote so it's good to be home to get a chance to vote and i have decided who i am voting for. >> joining us here in our studio, britt hume, fox news senior political analyst great to have you here. >> nice to see you . jon: you've covered a lot of elections. give us our perspective never seen one like this? >> never pick up it's in some respects, to a lot of people it looks like a train wreck in the making and we are slowly watching it unfold but it is exciting, newsworthy and the only thing worse than covering it would be notcovering it . jon: you've got donald trump position on the republicanside to win just about everything according to the polls except possibly texas .if ted cruz wins texas does that give him the ability to hang on and channel jobs trump?
8:03 am
>> i think he has enough of money and national organization to keep their but i don't think it's particularly advantageous to his cause. a loss in texas would defeat all possibility for him to go forward. ifyou can't texas after holding a big lead, i think that would probably be the end of him . he might even drop out. i think the likelihood tonight is that everybody hangs on but only one candidate really advances and that would be trump who appears poised to win everywhere or nearly everywhere as you suggested. jon: there are 595 delegates available on the republican side. there are naysayers who might say, you still need 1200+ for the republicannomination and donald trump doesn't have them all gobbled up yet . >> he won't. he will get a large plurality, possibly a majority tonight but because of proportional representation that means candidates who placeable 20 percent in most age will get delegates also so you can't
8:04 am
really wipe everybody out tonight except in the psychological sense that if he's the only one who wins anywhere except for possibly cruise in texas, people will begin to look at the alternatives that they can't do it and once that sets in, your support begins to fall away even among people who like you. jon: one thing that is setting and is that sitting members of congress are starting to join the donald trump train. you had a couple members of the house. you had senator jeff sessions from alabama publicly come out and endorse trump. amber phillips who writes for the fix in washington post wrote this this morning.one thing is for certain, donald trump's increasingly likely nomination is dividing the republican party and threatening to drive its members into an identity crisis and she goes on to show the ways in which various members of congress and the so-called
8:05 am
establishment are dealing with the trump phenomenon. some embracing him as jeff sessions has tried to do. on the other end of the spectrum you have senators like nebraska who said in no waywill i ever vote for donald trump for president . >> i think the identity crisis is upon us in the republican party and i think people don't really know what to do. what they fear most of course is he wins the nomination and goes down into a crushing defeat in the poll which wipes out the senate majority and the republicans hold because the ballot races will unquestionably be affected by what happens at the top of the ticket which means they lose control of the senate, possibly control of the house. so it's a frightening prospect for them and they don't really know whether to resist him to the bitter end so as not to be identified with him and try to run away with from him or whether to try to embrace him in the hopes that they can perhaps influence him or whatever and give him a better chance of winning so it's a very difficult dilemma and i don't think we are going to
8:06 am
know for some time how it will be resolved. jon: i don't pretend to be a spokesman for donald trump but if you're watching the segment right now, i can hear him say what problem what i cause for down ballot senators? i'mgoing to bring so much enthusiasm, so many voters to the party . >> that could be. that's not impossible. however, if you look as gallup did recently at the favorable and unfavorable ratings for all the candidates, you have trump is +24, net favorable among republicans. -27 among independents and -70 points negative among democrats. a republican can win, mitt romney for example on the republicans by some huge margin, 93 percent, something like that. he won independence, he lost the election because you do have to pull in some democrats
8:07 am
in some numbers and if you are at -70 among democrats it raises a question about howmany you are going to get and how many as well despite the lack of enthusiasm we see in the primary turnout for the democrats , trump will provide some enthusiasm from people who are desperate to avoid him and i think that would raise the turnout among those opposed, especially democrats. jon: so hillary clinton has her own problems but it does appear absent legal action or something like that, it does appear she is going to be the democratic nominee when you stack her up against donald trump, what do you see happening? >> her negatives are high but not as high as his so i think she will get most of the democrats. remember this. and unenthusiastic vote counts as much as an enthusiastic vote so a lot of people will go to the polls and they won't be excited about it but they will be worried about trump and that hillary is okay on most issues and they will vote for hillary.
8:08 am
whether she will do as well among minority voters as barack obama did famously is a good question. in a close close race that could make the difference. jon: she did well in south carolina. >> she did. i don't know what that will be in the general turnout but if the race is not close it will not matter and the free fear among republicans is the race won't be close . jon: obviously we will cover it through the day. you will be part of the coverage tonight.britt hume, tried to have you here. jenna: one of the most hotly contested state is virginia where donald trump holds a big lead but marco rubio and ted cruz are battling for second and both senators remain relevant in this race. rick hudson's line alexandria with more. reporter: good afternoon and we just spoke with marco rubio campaign officials who tell us they expect to win a lot of delegates here especially in places like this close to cities where northern virginia,
8:09 am
which as they say at least close to city has been an area where they have performed well. in this particular precinct, they got more than 20 percent of registered voters to come out and vote at this time of day in a primary and campaign and local officials they that's a pretty good turnout thus far. it has been two ãone about democrats and republicans, more democrats than republicans in this particular precinct but we managed to speak with a number of democrats and republicans and one unifying theme is they really don't like the rhetoric this campaign season. >> i'm troubled by it. i've been involved in national politics almost 50 years and i've never seen anything like this campaign. i am definitely troubled by the discourse . >> i can't imagine an election that has been more course and crass, at least the primary that has been worse but i just
8:10 am
can't imagine. why can't people be civil to each other? >> we are surrounded by people that want to kill us. our economy is not doing well and people are talking about whether he treats me nice or that's not a nice thing to say? we need to be grown-ups to go. reporter: for the democrats, 95 delegates at stake. for the republicans, 49 delegates. some proportionally so you don't have to win the whole state. polls close here at 7 pm. jenna? jenna: we will watch virginia and other states as well. jon: in the democratic race, hillary clinton comes into super tuesday with strong momentum from that win in south carolina. ernie sanders to stay competitive, he needs to do well in minnesota. sanders himself saying a win there will give him a real path to victory. live with sanders canvassers in st. paul right now. peter? reporter: this is proof that all politics is local. sanders volunteers are going door to door in st. paul making
8:11 am
a final pitch , one minnesotan at a time just a few hours before the vermont senator hits his first national test against clinton before he can see coast to coast helmet much people want a political revolution. sanders was here in minnesota yesterday and contrasting himself withclinton was a big part of the final pitch . >> tomorrow is super tuesday and the people are entitled to know the differences. somewhat profound differences that exist between senator clinton and myself and i want to rattle off a few of them. number one, i made a decision when we began this campaign that i would not have a super pack. [applause] i do not represent the interests of wall street or corporate america, of the drug companies, of the fossil fuel industry and of other powerful specialinterests . i don't want their money. [applause]
8:12 am
reporter: the first line of the script, volunteers are using to convince goes like this. i'm supporting bernie because he believes too many americans are working harder just to get by. the process here in minnesota is done differently than in iowa where the meetings could last hours and people are required to sit through it. if a minnesotan wants to tap the ballot and leave they can do that and something that could be a big boost to senator sanders who relies heavily on the youth vote here in minnesota. all colleges and universities are prohibited by law from scheduling anything after 6pm to give students that want to go caucus a chance to get there vote in and participate . jon: you got to catch up with your canvassers. we will let you go to it. thank you. keep it here for a complete super tuesday coverage all day. when the polls close until the results are in, our special

being hacked and intellectual property being stolen. that is cyber-crime and it affects each and every one of us. microsoft created the digital crimes unit to fight cyber-crime. we use the microsoft cloud to visualize information so we can track down the criminals. when it comes to the cloud, trust and security are paramount. we're building what we learn back into the cloud to make people and organizations safer. jon: some crime stories we are following. is a police chase across southern california where authorities say a man kidnapped his former girlfriend and their two kids. the pursuit stand several

8:18 am
jenna: back to politics and whale watching super tuesday voters across the country had to the polls in the seven states voting today. among them georgia where heavy turnout is expected. officials worked to organize the southern states and hope to get the south a bigger voice in choosing nominees. we see the line there. john is with us from a polling spot in atlanta. how are you? reporter: a very long line and it's been consistent all morning, the whole time we've been there. a whole lot of interest in this sec primary and while it may not be the first primary in the nation, the states have found that by synchronizing their elections, they have strength in numbers. >> it's going to be a snapshot of america. we are delegating the delegates proportionally by congressional district so you could say there's something for everyone. reporter: communities of all sizes have seen the candidates, donald trump made an 11th hour visit to the town of valdosta at his rally last night. the republican front-runner received endorsements from nascar ceo brian france as well
8:19 am
as several current and retired drivers and marco rubio held a rally here in atlanta's buckhead community where he was joined by south carolina governor nikki haley. rubio told voters to consider the consequences of their primary vote on the general election.>> a vote for donald trump tomorrow is a vote for hillary clinton in november. reporter: electability works in a primary when republican voters are convinced that the guy they really like can't win in november. the only way that rubio can peel off voters is convincing them donald trump loses to hillary clinton. reporter: the gop candidates talk about hillary clinton as the presumptive democrat nominee. she is polling well nationally and goes into the sec primary with strong support among african-americans who make up a large portion of the democrat party electorate in georgia as well as the deep south. jenna? jenna: we will be watching,

8:24 am
also question as to why she was targeted. the room full of attorneys and judges gave her a standing ovation as she took her seat on the bench. she will start hearing cases today. jon: hillary clinton seems to be looking past the primaries, setting her sights on republican front-runner donald trump according to a report in today's new york times. the clinton campaign is starting to consider how to oppose trump in the general election. weighing his strength and weaknesses. joining us now, john o caldwell, a republican strategist who worked on mitt romney's campaign also, harlan hill on democratic strategist and political consultant. to you first, harlan. is that a good strategy or a smart strategy on the part of the hillary campaign? is from a sure thing? i think donald is a sure thing. we will get confirmation this evening and really get definitive proof after march 15. but i will say this. i think she should wait and
8:25 am
wait donald's strengths and weaknesses but also her own. it's clear that when you look at the polls, people don't trust her and don't think she's empathetic to their problems so she needs to do some self reflection as well. jon: i suppose, if you are the donald trump check campaign there's plenty of material to work with if hillary clinton comes after you. >> i absolutely agree with that and what harlan says in terms of looking at her strengths what we know is donald trump has ran an unconventional race this campaign season. so unconventional, some people are actually looking forward to seeing kanye west run for president in 2020. what we know is that hillary clinton campaign and some of her allies have already decided what they are going to do with this race. they decided they're going to take the david duke endorsement and make it a campaign about race which is i think is something that will backfire on them considering the fact that hillary clinton, her record on
8:26 am
race hasn't been good. this is a candidate who said that black people are super predators. this is a candidate who said the 94 crime arrow was a good thing, something that has led to mass incarcerations of african-americans and hispanics. when it comes down to it, we have a lot we can look at in terms of hillary clinton's record on a number of issues. her problematic record on being honest and we can run a really good campaign against her. jon: harland, one about the states that come into play because donald trump is in the race. he says for instance that he could turn new york red because well, he says he's popular in the state of new york. >> we saw paul yesterday that showed that he was competitively, in fact in ahead of her on long island and within striking distance through new york so i believe that. it's not just in new york. ithink it's in new jersey and in rust belt states like michigan, ohio, pennsylvania and democrats are playing defense in those states , it's
8:27 am
a totally different ball game from 2012. mitt romney was never competitive in pennsylvania even though they tried to pretend they were at the end. i think donald trump will be. jon: what about the excitement gap? hillary clinton is a known quantity, she's been on the national stage for a quarter century. donald trump, although he has certainly been on the national stage he is new to politics. the excitement factor of a potential trump nomination, does that benefit the republicans? >> it does benefit them, i believe. i believe donald trump is speaking to issues that many folks believe our existing on either side of the fence in terms of democrats and republicans. i guess hosted the show, the armstrong williams show and i had a truck driver call me and say hey, i don't like donald trump as an individual. i don't believe in everything he says but one thing i do agree with is on immigration. illegal immigrants are driving down wages and he needs to feed his family so there's these issues that people may agree with him forcefully on so that
8:28 am
has created excitement, whether it be for one issue or donald trump as a whole, people are looking at him because he's bringing up issues that not many candidates have because they have populations to bring up. jon: harland, we introduce you as democratic strategist.if you work consulting hillary clinton's campaign and they said how do we go after donald trump, what do you say? >> i would say that the two most important issues to attack trump on our one, his inexperience and really too, that he's a loose cannon. this is a guy that controls the nuclear arsenal. can you really trust this guy? and i think they need to discredit him on that level, on that fundamental level that this guy could be keeping you awake at night. so that's what i would say. from hillary's perspective, she needs to address the enthusiasm gap. republicans are enthusiastic about the different options
8:29 am
they have. democrats are not the same way. it's a real problem. jon: john, same question in reverse. if you are advising the trump campaign, how would you go after hillary clinton? >> we have to wonder if hillary clinton will be around to run for presidentconsidering there's 100 fbi agents can are currently investigating her and dave expanded the investigation three times. we need to look at her integrity. does she have any? i don't think she does. we need to look at her honesty and trustworthy numbers which are low. those are things you could bring up all day long. she has a record , harlan mentioned it, donald trump is antics inexperience pop politician which he is. many people view him as a loose cannon but when they do hillary clinton on is broken promises, a record of inaction on a number of things and she was a senator foreight years. a number of things she's been
8:30 am
bringing up now during this campaign, she took no action on. so i think there's a lot to work with when it comes to running against hillary clinton . jon: we will see if these to you become the nominee and we will hear a lot about that direction after tonight. thank you for coming. >> thank you. jenna: we all reference super tuesday as if it's a turn that's been around for 100 years but it hasn't. a peek back at the first ever super tuesday, a day that some say launched a political dynasty and two presidencies. plus, happening now, behind closed doors in a key meeting at the white house. the white house invites republican leaders to search for a solution to the supreme court logjam. republicans going into the white house and that meeting taking place right now. we will keep you posted as we hear for more from the white house and beyond. pet moments are beautiful,

unless you have allergies. then your eyes may see it differently. only flonase is approved to relieve both itchy, watery eyes and congestion. no other nasal allergy spray can say that. when we breathe in allergens our bodies react by over producing six key inflammatory substances that cause our symptoms. most allergy pills only control one substance. flonase controls six. and six is greater than one. complete allergy relief or incomplete. let your eyes decide. flonase. 6>1 changes everything. jon: right now a quick look at what's still to come this hour on happening now.
8:35 am
the person who delivered the tools unwittingly he says that helps to killers bust out of prison in new york state learns his fate. there prison break prompted a massive nationwide manhunt. plus, apple and the fbi go head-to-head before a congressional committee today in the battle over a terrorist iphone against the privacy of national security. we are waiting for that get started.and favorite spots in yosemite national park forced to change their names in a dispute over corporate trademark. jenna: in new hampshire and iowa, big headlines every four years in the primary caucuses but then comes super tuesday where candidates and resources fan out in a dozen or more states across the south. some analysts think the frontloaded calendar gives candidates like donald trump a
8:36 am
boost this year. how did we get to this? how did the election calendar evolve? i am joined by doug lee, presidential historian and former consultant for george w. bush. it's great to have you back in the program. we talked about super tuesday like it's, super tuesday of course. but it is the product of recent history. when did it start and why? >> it started because southern states wanted more of a say in who the respective mom nominee would be of their parties. there was a electoral richest region in the country but most electoral votes in the region came in the south but it didn't really happen until republican party officials and democratic party officials pushed it. i called governor chuck robb of virginia the father of super tuesday. he wanted a more moderate democrat party and that's why he pushed it. it didn't work out. jesse jackson actually on many of the states of super tuesday 1988. it moved the party to the left and republican establishment figures said hey, an outsider can win iowa by shaking enough hands but an outsider will never win super tuesday because
8:37 am
it cost too much money and they have to have a ground game that only the party can give them so both parties created this frankenstein monster that has slipped its bonds and is now roaming the country doing the very opposite. jenna: just to give folks perspective, at the first super tuesday, the term was first used in 1976. the 1980 election and beyond it started to pick up steam and you had more states. at one point i was looking down the list, you had 21 states voting on super tuesday, 25 on 2008 so it's gone up. we are seeing on the screen ronald reagan. talk to us a little bit about the dynasty that some say super tuesday lunch after ronald reagan. >> the reagan dynasty also, that was 1976 and counted president ronald ford and reagan spit super tuesday.
8:38 am
that's a prequel for the reagan revolution and his changing of america and the world but march 8, 1988 may be the most consequential super tuesday in american history. george hw bush have lost the initial early around contest in michigan. he came in third in the iowa caucus february 8. i actually walked george w. bush, his son who was roaming that night in des moines. he was sick and i waited in his bedroom until he almost went to sleep that i walked down to the lobby of the hotel and there was doral bush, the daughter of the president. she was in despair. everyone was saying her dad was going to and become the president of her later but he won in new hampshire. march 5, he won in south carolina and march 8 he on super tuesday and that launched the greatest family dynasty in american history, two presidents and a governor of
8:39 am
florida and texas. it almost was stillborn. it almost didn't happen except for super tuesday. jenna: we love to talk to a more about your personal experience because it sounds like you had quite a journey over the last years. taking a step back and looking at super tuesday, looking at those prophecies, an outsider can never winsuper tuesday and what super tuesday really means for either side , how do you see it and how it applies to this year's election cycle? >> i think this is fascinating. i'm neutral but as a historian you've got to love donald trump because he so interesting. he's poked the nose of the national media. for all their contempt of religion, many in the national media are more legalistic and more intellectually stifling than any religion could be so here's a candidate who defies political correctness. give me a break.
8:40 am
gay lives don't matter. native american lives don't matter. people dying of aids don't matter. people who are victims of sexual abuse don't matter. tell the people dying of cancer in hospice services they don't matter. this is an insult to doctor martin luther king and to many african-americans and poses this type of language that the national media has done. here comes someone who defies political correctness and i think in 100 years we will look back at many people will see that some of the national media today are like doctors who used to bleed patients. it's ridiculous. it's hit record. jon: jenna: do believe super tuesday carries the same weight, when you look back at some of those election. it put the country in a different direction and perhaps some thought it was going in. do you believe super tuesday old that same power in our time as it did let's say 20 years ago? >> i think it does.
8:41 am
i think it will be definitive tonight. i put it to you this way. if donald trump wins most of the states tonight on super tuesday, even if the party establishment is able to somehow pull off a victory for someone else at the convention, the nomination won't be worth anything because the people will perceive that it has been stolen so i do think that super tuesday is going to be definitive. tonight will be definitive, whether people favor that were not. as a historian, i'm just enjoying the ride. and it's a hoot. jenna: you made observations about the previous races where it has been that tipping point for some campaigns, even when it was thought some campaigns might be over. it's great to have your perspective and we look forward to the result tonight and it being in the history books as well. thank you very much. jon: a third person will spend time behind bars for aiding the escape of two convicted killers
8:42 am
from that maximum-security prison in new york. here how long a former guard will spend under lock and key for his involvement in their escape. plus, we are standing by for members of congress to address the battle between apple and the fbi over access to an iphone a terrorist was using. as a judge in another case decides in apple's favor.

8:45 am
jenna: new information now about apples fight against the fence. we are waiting on the house judiciary committee meeting on apple national security. this is the day after a judge ruled in apple's favor in a routine drug case in brooklyn. the judge decided the justice department can't force apple to give the police access to iphone data. a lot iphone in that case. while apple ceo insists shareholders are standing by against the court order blocking the san bernardino shooter syed farook purple apple filed todismiss that order . in the meantime, republican presidential candidates sounded
8:46 am
off in the most recent debate. >> apple doesn't want to doit because they think it hurts their brand. their brand is not superior to the national security of the united states of america. the . >> the order is not put a back door in everyone's cell phone. if that was the order, that order would be problematic. >> they don't comply with that, you are encouraging chaos in our system. >> you lock the door and you say you're not coming out until you reach an agreement. >> that's john kasich advocating a solution and we will see what happens. more on this is cyber security analyst morgan right at the center for digital government. just for context, that's what john asic was saying. lock them in the room until they figure it out. i'm curious, taking a step back we have a couple different ways to talk about this story but in the weeks that have passed since the first time we spoke, i asked you previously is apple really the only one that can provide a solution?
8:47 am
is it about the government and apple only or can others help with this? you said at that point it is about apple perhaps. what do you think now? is it about these two parties , the government and apple? >> funny you should mention that. i'm here at the world largest security conference now and three hours from now loretta lynch will be speaking so it will be interesting to see if she addresses the situation this is apple technology, it's apple intellectual property, it's apple code, it's apple hardware. at this point, if the fbi could have found a way around that they would have done it . it's like when you do a wiretap, you have to exhaust all other means before you go ask for the most intrusive thing and in this case i think they've exhausted everything they can and believe me, if the fbi could do it they wouldn't be asking apple to do it. they would do it and not let everybody know they have this capability so the ball is in apple's court. jenna: i'm in curious what your policy is at the security conference.
8:48 am
you're in the place we should be asking that question. what's the consensus from security experts about where we should be on this smart. >> i outnumbered because i'm on the side of the fbi and not so much the fbi but i simply think we need access to this information. it is a healthy debate because there's a lot of debate about encryption, about ethics, about what should be built in this new internet of things that is coming out. we don't even have any guidelines about what to be connected so now the sentiment is everybody is backing apple but that's to be expected considering the audience here. and if you step back and look at the broader implications, it will be interesting. i'm going to try to get her in as early as i can to hear the attorney general speak but definitely apple if you were to take a poll, it's super tuesday down here because governor keith alexander, they will also be speaking so we will see a lot of feedback or blowback depending on what side of the ball you are on. jenna: that will be interesting to hear the results. morgan, the fbi director said the codes the judge has

directed apple to write works only onthis one phone . is that true? >> i just got through doing an interview with a professor from the university of southern california who teaches this stuff and when i asked him the same question, he said it's only five lines of code and it would only work on this phone so the notion that the back door is not correct. that is a red herring people are throwing up to confuse the issue. whether or not you believe it sets a president is not the issue. the issue is with this software work on any other phone and the answer is no. even the director of the fbi said we don't want to see it. we will give you the phone, connect to it electronically and once we get the data we are done. so i'm not sure what the issue is. if it was turned around and it was apple employees that had been killed or injured or another tech company's employees, would be had be having this discussion? jenna: i was going to ask you
