5:30 pm
partly sunny skies right through your weekend ahead. no weather problems. >> thank you for watching. >> pelley: can trump be caught? >> super tuesday is the single best opportunity. >> pelley: he's already looking ahead to another opponent. >> hillary clinton does not have the strength or the stamina to become president, i'm telling you. >> pelley: also tonight, the president argues his case for a supreme court nomination and gets his answer. >> this vacancy will not be filled this year. >> pelley: erin andrews testifies in her multi-million-dollar stalking case. and there's another sanders. meet bernie's bro. >> reporter: he's been called cool.
5:31 pm
with scott pelley. >> pelley: and norah o'donnell, john dickerson are joining me, coming to you from cbs news election headquarters at a turning point in this presidential campaign. likely, the last chance for challengers to catch the front-runners, donald trump and hillary clinton. with 12 states voting this super tuesday, cbs news projects trump is the winner in the republican primary in georgia. vermont is a toss-up, trump battling kasich. these are estimates based on our exit polls and our sample precincts, and the votes that have been counted so far. virginia is a toss-up as well, with rubio battling trump there. on the democratic side, we can project clinton is the winner in georgia and virginia, sanders in his home state of vermont. in fact, sanders is just taking the stage right now in essex, vermont.
5:32 pm
>> the people who knew me before i was elected, who knew me as mayor, knew me as congressman, and know me as senator, have voted so strongly to put us in the white house. thank you so much! ( cheers and applause ) thank you. >> this campaign, as i think all of you know, this campaign is president. america. ( cheers and applause ) it is about making our great country the nation that we know
5:33 pm
( cheers and applause ) it is about dealing with some unpleasant truths that exist in america today and having the guts to confront those truths. it is about recognizing that in our state, we have town meetings, and people come out and they argue about budgets, and then they vote-- one person, one vote. >> pelley: bernie sanders in essex junction, vermont, with his victory speech there, winning vermont handily, his home state, as expected. but the question remaining tonight is will bernie sanders defeat hillary clinton anywhere else? nancy cordes is covering that
5:34 pm
>> reporter: and, scott, that very question is the reason that we are hearing from bernie sanders so early this evening. he won in vermont, and things look good for him in a couple of other states, like oklahoma, like minnesota, but he just doesn't know if he'll be victorious. so he thought he'd come out early after winning his home state of vermont. hillary clinton, he has acknowledged, is going to have a better night tonight. he knows that she is likely to, in effect, have a southern sweep, including picking up the biggest prize of texas, and not just winning, but winning big, which means that she will gain the largest share of the delegates tonight. but he argued very aggressively today, scott, that at the end of the night, only 15 states will have voted. that means there are 35 more to go, including some big states like california and new york, and he says there are a lot more americans still to weigh in. >> pelley: nancy cordes with the democrats for us tonight.
5:35 pm
republicans. >> that's good "n" that's good! >> reporter: a last-minute trip to minnesota this morning was a sign that clinton felt confident comfort confident enough of her standing-- >> pelley: well, that's live television for you, folks, wrong tape on that, but we'll get back to major's report here in just a joining us for election night are norah o'donnell, cohost of "cbs this morning" and john dickerson, our cbs news political director and anchor of "face the nation." what are you seeing so far? >> donald trump picked up georgia. that's a state that ted cruz once upon a time would have wanted. cruz and rubio are trying to stop the trump steam roller. they need a win. if they can't they will look for something to go with donors and say hang with me, stay with me. the other big thing to watch for in talking to republicans, they talk about how donald trump is reshaping the ( rn party. what are we going to see in
5:36 pm
us some sense of what the trump coalition looked like? >> pelley: and, norah, what are you seeing on the democratic side? >> reporter: this is a big night for the democrats as well, a bill bignight in terms of delegates. and hillary clinton is hoping to cement her lead. bernie sanders told john on "face the nation" that he was going to win in minnesota, that he was going to win in colorado, he was going to win in oklahoma, and he would do well in massachusetts. test for bernie sanders is, could he move beyond his liberal base, his base of young voters? he has to do well among minority voters, hispanices and blacks, which make up the base of the democratic party. there are a lot of these states in the south that have larger electorates that are african american and hispanic, hillary clinton poised to do well in those states. but, already, you see in oklahoma that is a toss-up at this hour for them and that is good news for bernie sanders. >> pelley: cbs news is projecting that trump is the winner in georgia. this is our projection based on the vote that is still being counted there and the exit polling that we've been doing
5:37 pm
major garrett is covering the republicans for us tonight. major. >> reporter: i can tell you this, scott, the trump campaign feels very good about alabama, tennessee, and massachusetts. they expect to wrap up victories there. they believe they are guining ground on ted cruz in texas though, they concede cruz is likely to win his home state. two nearby states that are going to be tough battlegrounds tonight for cruz and trump, oklahoma and arkansas. marco rubio is looking for a victory in minnesota, but the cruz campaign put a last-minute powive there, hope to dislodge rubio from that potential victory. overall, it's going to be everyone chasing trump. but the cruz campaign hopes by the end of the night to say, "we've won, rubio hasn't, we're the conservative alternative to trump. coalesce behind us." >> pelley: major garrett covering the republicans for us tonight and reminding you, cbs news has already estimated that donald trump is the victor in georgia. we will be bringing you super tuesday updates throughout this

5:39 pm

5:40 pm
but they are adamant and they said, "no, we're not going to do this at all." >> reporter: majority leader mitch mcconnell said reid would do the same thing. >> if the shoe were on the other foot do any of you think the democrat majority in the senate would be confirming a republican president's nomination in the last year of his term ? of course not. >> reporter: but the president now is narrowing his list of nominees, in search of a solid liberal with a sterling resume who brings diversity, such as federal judge ketanji brown jackson, former supreme court clerk who was unanimously confirmed to the district court, with support from a relative by marriage, house speaker paul ryan. and federal appears court judge, paul watford, also a former supreme court clerk and a corporate lawyer, and patricia millett, a lawyer in the clinton and bush administrations, who has argued 32 cases in the supreme court. now, another consideration is the election. all things being equal, scott,
