welcome to "cbs this morning." gayle king is off. vinita nair is here. welcome. the final republican debate before super tuesday was more like a heavyweight fight with marco rubio as the hard hitting underdog. >> your ties and the clothes you make are made in mexico and china so you're starting a trade war against your own ties. >> you wouldn't know anything about it because you're lousy. >> i don't know anything about bankrupt companies. >> what is your plan? >> that is the problem. what is your plan on health care? you don't have a plan. >> you lied about the policy sh workers. you lied 38 years ago. i guess there is statute of limitations on lies. >> cruz and rubio hit trump with one verbal attack after another. >> major garrett watched the

7:05 am
trump towers he will be using illegal immigration to do it. >> first of all, you're talking about the polls, i'm beating him awfully badly in the polls. >> but you're not beating hillary! >> if i can't beat her, you're really going to get killed, aren't you? >> reporter: on foreign policy, trump said the art of the deal might work in the middle east. >> the palestinians are not a real estate deal, donald. >> no, no, no. >> they are not a real estate deal. >> a deal is a deal. i learned a long time ago. terrorists? >> reporter: the most heated exchange delved into trump's plan to replace obamacare. >> we should have gotten rid of competition. around the state. >> now he is repeating himself. >> no, i'm not repeating myself. no, no, no. i watched him repeat himself five times four weeks ago. >> you repeat yourself five

7:07 am
i can just tell thaw a con artist is about to take over the republican party xt conservative movement and we have to put a stop to it. look at the report you guys just did. donald trump had no answers last night on the issues of health care. if you listen to that report that led into this the media is pumping him up as some sort of unstoppable force. donald trump is consistently fighting for the working people he says and he has a stick to working people for 35 years. if any other candidate in this race had his record there will be nonstop reporting on it, but, unfortunately he is pumped up because many the in the media with a buy oos know he is easy to beat in the general election. we will put a stop to it now and no way we will allow a con artist to take over the conservative movement and donald trump is a con art i- >> what do you think a trump government would look like, senator? >> it would be chaos. no one knows but it would look probably like the positions he has held for all of these years. on many of these issues, he is wholly unprepared to be
7:08 am
he refuses to answer questions on any specific public policy. he has no plan for health care, for example. they asked him about the debt. he claimed he is going to cut the debt by cutting fraud and abuse and everyone acknowledges and he didn't get any follow-up and no press on that and no enobody pressed on him after that and i tried to get the moderators to ask him about that. this is the most important job on the planet and we are about to turn over the conservative movement to a person who has no ideas of any substance on the important issues. the nuclear code of the united states to an erratic individual and the conservative movement -- a career sticking it to working people. questions in. >> we want to ask you that cnn is reporting this morning. that your campaign manager met with top donors behind closed doors and the possibility of a contested convention in order to earn the nomination to get the nomination was discussed. is that something you're thinking about? >> no. but the truth is that it is possible that no one gains the necessary to win.
7:09 am
going now, no one may have that number of delegates and that in and of itself could trigger a convention after the first round delegates are free to vote whomever they want and i prefer that not to be the case and much rather have someone win the nomination in this process but not a con artist like donald trump. >> you've said that a number of times, con artist like donald trump. you've been on the stage with him throughout this campaign season. you were very different last night and much more combative than i have ever seen you. >> well, because it's a narrower race, number one. number two, i acknowledge we are an underdog. >> are you acknowledging that you failed to do this so far? >> no. well, first of all, i would prefer not to get into a fight with other republicans but i would much more prefer not to turn over the party to a con artist like donald trump and last night is the last debate before super tuesday and i'm asking everyone watching tonight if you're a republican and you don't want your party taken over by a con artist like donald trump unite behind us and go to
7:10 am
put an end to this allow lunacy. >> a new poll shows that donald trump is still ahead by double digits. that is why i asked that question about the panic button. it appears that donald trump is rolling toward the nomination. >> yeah. well, if you want to base that on one poll, that's fine. we have our own polls and other public polls show that is not the case. we will win florida. i know our state very well and it is not voting for someone like donald trump. i will acknowledge there are some people watching this broadcast are intrigued and think he is a straight-talker and fights for the little guy but donald trump has spent 40 years sticking it to the little guy or longer. every time -- >> senator. >> one of his businesses fail, you know who didn't get paid? the little guy who was working for him. >> we invite you to come to new york to the table, senator. thank you for this morning. >> thank you. thank you. >> joining us is "face the nation" moderator and political news director of cbs john dickerson who is in washington.
7:11 am
>> reporter: help us understand what is going on in the republican party. are they in a moment of panic as norah suggested because it looks like trump is going and marching right to the nomination? >> sure. last night was the best venue for somebody like marco rubio to take him on. you're not going to win a twitter war with donald trump. the debate venue is one in which rubio could have shown why a trump presidency could be dangerous and he had the challenges facing america. when you get into rah shout a shouting bhach donald trump you're playing on trump's turf. the talking points you heard from the senator are ones he didn't deliver last night and the ones he probably would have preferred to delivered but he got into that shouting match with him and see if that does anything for voters. >> john, do that math for us. as we look towards tuesday night, we will all be here together on cbs looking at those results. how close is trump to capturing this nomination? what will we see on tuesday night?
7:12 am
>> there is a dealt question and momentum question. on tuesday night, 11 states. texas is a big one we will be watching that to see how cruz does, can he do well in his own state. but donald trump, if he wins all of the rest of the states, even if the other contestants get some delegates coming out of that, the question is what will the conversation be afterwards? if donald trump wins a whole bunch of states, let's say he wins ten of them, while the others may be amassing delegates, it will continue this kind of snowballing of the trump victories and the question then becomes will people join behind his campaign? there is some sign that is happening. >> certainly some questions we will be asking at this table should that happen. john dickerson, thank you. on sunday he will talk with senator ted cruz on "face the nation." democrats vote in south carolina tomorrow and recent polls give clinton and overwhelming lead. she attacked sanders gun control record yesterday near a church
7:13 am

what is at issue here for you? >>. a tough question and answer. i fundamentally changed my views the last several days listening from debate going if the terrorist black and white case all the way to my view today which i think is the right one, fundamentally supporting tim come in what he is trying to do. this is a question of drawing a line in the sand and a new set of problems. fbi, law enforcement asking a company to write today surveil it is customers is unprecedented and what tim cook is trying to do bring it in to public debate, all the way to congress and the supreme court and have a clear set of laws created because there isn't anything on the books today. i they is profoundly important. >> you heard the case the fbi director made, he said the code works on only this phone.

in to the to working on miemy and your phone is not the real thing. >> i'm sure it is possible to write code that only works on that iphone, but they can work on any others, yours or my laptop. if there is a law that says that's okay, what tim cook is trying to say is we all need to hear it. it cannot be done in the shadows, clearly stated to the american people we are all fine with this. >> max, you work in the industry. what do you think has changed? as i look at this debate, apple has been cooperating with law enforcement and u.s. intel intelligence agencies for years. why all of a sudden has apple decided to draw a line in the sand for this case? >> i can't speak for apple. i suspect ands it's a complex
8:08 am
as a parent and husband, my initial reaction is to help law enforcement but it must have felt that the slope has gotten slippery. where you start by handing over data you had access to as court order would compel you to, now you are asked to build new software. why not expect apple to have software in your phone that records everything you say? that is something that clearly could not deal with without having it heard out publicly. >> why is it the government needs apple's help? people would think why not recruit people from silicon valley and you have your own capability of thaking hacking in to a phone. >> this particular one issue, technologically without apple's help is impossible. the security in the iphone today is strong enough where the company itself has means to unlock it if they are compelled to do so but the best hacker in
