1:43 am
>> when it comes 0 those leaders, republican establishment, their ipods have been playing johnny cash god is going to cut you down. should they be listening to beyonce's formation? how do they reconci the difference, ome on girls, get in formation. >> they're definitely panicked. is it too late? one example of the panic is new anti-trump super pac formed called our principles behind it. meg whitman, paul singer and just yesterday, they got jeb bush's former spokesman on board. and they have ads out. really the question is, is it too late. >> that is the big question. and i was trying to think of another beyonce song. >> you do love your beyonce. >> yeah. >> continue the alogy. >> a lot of ways bernie sanders is seen by many supporters as irreplaceable. that's the closest beyonce i could get. at this point, it seems as if the tide is turning against him right now.

clinton looks absolutely unstoppable right now. and she began this campaign as someone who was the likely nominee. she was the presumed democratic nominee. now she's earned it. she had the scare in iowa. she took a huge hit in new hampshire. she's really come back now and tonight we see her sailing out of super tuesday with that strong lead that she's earned. >> and quoting the weekend. >> that's right. >> rick, we really saw from t t it polls two different pictures. what republicans wanted is someone more of an outsider. the democrats are going towards political experience. what's going to happen when it comes down to november if it's down to the hillary and trump campaigns. >> you're seeing the divisions in the country play out in the way you're seeing r res begin to settle.. front-runners come at this with entirely different resumes and rationales speaking to different thoughts and passions of the votes. the fact one party seems close to nominating hillary clinton sort of the ultimate insider and the other party is closer than ever to nominating donald trump,
1:45 am
this is going to be an epic clclh. we look for why is thihi race going to matter. this is no the a hard one to define if this is hillary clinton against donald trump, we know what the big forces are. the votes are speak to that right now. >> what did we learn about donald trump last night? rick mentioned he can appeal to the cracker barrel crowd as well as a whole foods crowd. what did elearn about donald d trump? >ook at those exit polls, he dominated in so many different groups. but thene group that really i just shocked me the most is evangelical voters. he emmed ted cruz out. it was close but he edged him out. this is someone ted cruz called vulgar and profane but the thrice married gop front-runner won evangelical voters tonight. >> my moms says it is corinthians is acceptable. >> i was going to say to play the contrary argument, there is a red flag for trump tonight.
1:46 am
it's good for marco rubio but it was trump's worst performance in the state of minnesota. he finished third place there. with so many midwest states coming up, you have illinois coming up, ohio a big prize, those states coming up, perhaps there is a little bit of a silver lining. > he got like two net delegates out of minnesota. >> we're not talking about the delegates. >> but if it was for the hillary camp, who would the dems like to see? >> hear her campaign say it's totally excited to run against donald trump and take the example this week. kkk scuffle, the david duke example. they want to see that front and center. i think you've started to see a little bit of it from hillary. >> we're going to continue to torture these guys. >> we're going to ask the team actually what they learned most from super tuesday that surprised them. stick with us. >> going to hang out for a

morning. >> thank you for the stylings that make us -- i learned that marco rubio may be smoke and not fire. i am shocked by the fact that he invested as much as he did in states like texas in particular, also alabama and vermont and is going to walk away with a goose egg, a big old round number that is zero of delegates out of these states. this is an a level campaign. they know how it works and were stressing we're going toat into cruz's lead. he was confifint even talking about george stephanopoulos tonight. he's going to get delegates just about everywhere. >> what the doesn't resonate with voters? >> his attacks, the kind of childish. >> the small hands. >> and spray tan and all that, that it back fired. it reduced had imin size literally as donald trum said that little marco rubio. he was reduced in the minds of vote ares. >> that means he didn't get 20% of the vote. >> that was the threshold. this was not a surprise and they didn't get it.
1:50 am
things that happened right before super tuesday when we learned that bernie sanders raised $42 million in february alone. that's more money than marco rubio raised in his entire campaign. what's also surprising is that bernie sanders who likes 0 talk about billionaires but doesn't really like to talk about money was talking about it tonight at his campaign event. >> it doesn't get him any further. he had a lot of moneyhat didn't help him in the end. >> he says he's going to go to the conveveion andoing to californrn in june. that has a bounty of dels. he has the money to go there. >> we were watching you typing away during the abc coverage last night during primetime coverage. what shocked you as you were there working. > i got to tell you, one of the most fascinating things to me is the most importanttuality voters want to see in a candidate is the candidate shares their values. where does donald trump fall in that? he is the worst rated candidate in all the states last night and in fact from every state i think in the candidate that shares my values.
