now, at this point we've had four primaries. history teaches us that nobody has ever won the nomination without winning one of the first three primaries. there are only two people that have won one of the first three primaries. >> that reference between trump and cruz now it's on to the g.o.p. debate in cruz's hometown of houston, texas and he's regrouping holding on to super tuesday. the senator wrapping up tonight saying he's looking forward to sleeping in his own bed for the first time in weeks. reporting live tonight from the s heinrichs ymca news now. >>) the votes are still beingon counted at the south point.

rubio 27%. cruz with 17%. so there you begin to see the breakdown of the two most populated counties in nevada. three storylines of the night. reporting live from the south a point 8 news now. >> we have a picture tweeted out reportedly on the outside of the memorial caucus site had people fueling social media.en two members outside the caucus site/ holding signs supporting trump. we don't( know if this is beforey or against truck but it's int terrible taste. >> let'sd goan over to our panel headed up by host steve sebelius.rna >> thanks paul and dave. i think one of the things i fe wanted to start out with, trump
speech he got 47% of the latino vote. >> i fainted. i don't believe it. i still don't, but nonetheless if that's what the poll said, that it. >> how do you explain that? he says i'm requesting to build a wall and mexico is going to pay for it. but nearly half of the hispanic vote? >> it's inexplicable. >> ferndo let's turn to the former chair wosm the nevada republican party. what about you? >> the hispanic vote? no, i cannot. the only thing i can possibly think of is the fact that he's so focused on jobs and the economy and hispanics are like anyone else. focused on the economy and
>> i see of course king of nevada talk radio alan stock here nodding her head, you agree with that? >> i agree. you can't say hispanics or blacks or whites. people are people and what trump has done is reached out and imrabd on to people's emotions. he's grabbed on to latino's emotions and whites and blacks. but he has reached out to these people. there is no difference between a hispanic conservative and white conservative when you like him or not. >> it was shocking to me because 25% of his speech doesn't dealt with [inaudible] etc. i can't explain that. because i don't know latinos
and concur with him and to see that 46% of the latino voter voted for him is shocking. >> we can't always agree on everything that all the people say. he's saying i'm going to put people to work. i'm going to keep git mow gitmo open. you're a right. maybe while the republican latinos don't want to hear about the wall, they're saying other things. i'm trying to objectively see there are a lot of people who have glommed on to him. he's captured the imagination of people in this race like i've never seen if in my entire lief life. >> we can discuss the overall results. 46%% nearly half the vote in gem going to donald trump. 24% going to marco rubio.
really, this was a race for second place. and ted cruz lost that race. >> it seems that way, yes. obviously marco rubio looks like he's coming in second place pretty strong then you have the third place going to cruz and a battle for carson and kasich which neither one of them were expecting to do well here in nevada. i endorsed governor kasich and i don't regret that. with super tuesday coming up, you have about 10 states or so, that's a large number of delegates that are going to be allocated. we've only had four races. >> governor kasich has to be to make it to ohio. that's a long road. there are a lot of days between then and now. >> there is nothing wrong with that. it's a 50 state race and he's doing what he feels is right and best that's his campaign strategy.
here, so he's focused on the future, i'll do extremely well in the mid west states. >> any other surprise? >> i'm going it make a prediction right now, that picture about the ku klux klan, i'll bet it turns out to be people who hate trump and out there dressed like that -- we all kind of a liewd lewded to that. >> that was my first thought. obviously shocking. and if it was meant as satire, i think poor taste is probably the nicest thing you can see with that. let's throw it back to our anchors paula and dave and see what else pef. >> that picture fell flat.e this is your local election/// headquarters.
