7:01 am
>> huge shifts on the left and the right. let's get to where things stand this morning. fueled by record-setting voting turnout, bernie sanders won over hillary clinton more than 20 points. hillary clinton conceded moments after the poll closed. >> things aren't closer on the republican side, at least at the top. donald trump doubling his closest competitor, the surprise of the night, john kasich. cruz finished third after a win in iowa. followed closely be jeb bush and marco rubio with chris christie in a disappointing sixth. >> we'll talk to trump and kasich in a moment. first, let's start with the democrats. kristen welker, good morning. >> what a night. the clinton campaign is waking up to the reality secretary clinton has a tough road ahead. right now, senator bernie
7:02 am
the campaign has been bracing for a loss but didn't expect such an overwhelming defeat. >> reporter: riding a wave of anti-establishment enthuseiasmenthusiasm, bernie sanders trounced center clinton in new hampshire, turning his underdog campaign into a real fight. >> it is just too late for the same old, same old establishment politic politics. the people want real change. [ applause ] >> reporter: in a rousing speech that lasted nearly 30 minutes, sanders flexed his muscles, painting the win as a validation of his call to take on wall street and big business. >> together, we have sent the message that we'll echo from wall street to washington, from maine to california. >> reporter: and while secretary clinton's campaign may have been bruised, she tried not to show it.
7:03 am
tuesday night. >> not whether you get knocked down that matters. it's whether you get back up. >> reporter: but sources close to the campaign tell nbc news top aids are taking stock of the strategy, including a sharper focus on wall street, a message that's rallied young voters around sanders. >> we also agree that wall street can never be allowed to once again threaten main street. i will fight to reign in wall street. you know what? i know how to do it. >> reporter: in a memo, clinton's campaign manager tried to calm jittery supporters. writing, the nomination will likely be won in march, not february, pointing to clinton's strength in super tuesday states, which are larger and more diverse, playing to her appeal among minority communities. >> we also have to break through the barriers of bigotry. african-american parents shouldn't have to worry that their children will be harassed,
7:04 am
the color of their skin. >> reporter: while the campaign is trying to down play the loss, noting sanders is from neighboring vermont, the clintons have strong roots here, too. new hampshire is where president bill clinton famously called himself the comeback kid, and where secretary clinton beat barack obama in 2008. >> thank you. >> reporter: but now, it's the place that put bernie sanders on the map. >> thank you, new hampshire! now, it's on to nevada, south carolina and beyond. [ applause ] >> sources close to the campaign say both hillary and bill clinton expressed concerns about the campaign. now, they're bringing on a new strategist, one of the top officials from president obama's re-election campaign. expect more outreach to the young voters who overwhelmingly prefer sanders. the only demographic clinton won with voters, 65 and older. senator sanders will work to
7:05 am
today, meeting with reverend al sharpton. back to you. >> kristen welker, thank you very much. >> let's bring in chuck todd. nbc's political director, moderator of "meet the press." hillary clinton knew she was going to lose. i don't know they knew they'd lose this badly. where do they go from here? >> they have to worry about a couple things. number one, not to panic. the worse it can get the more they panic. they have a money problem. bernie sanders out-raised her in january and will again. they don't have the ability to shoot out an e-mail and raise a bunch of money. the next contest is not south carolina. it's nevada. this is a race that suddenly is very tight there. it's very possible sanders beats her in nevada, too. then that race takes the one in south carolina to a point it won't be so easy for her. now, she has to deal with outside forces she can't
7:06 am
rumors about michael bloomberg, the former new york city mayor getting in. rumors about joe biden. this is going to be a very difficult three weeks. if the campaign panics at any point, maybe overcorrects, it could be in even worse shape in a month from now. >> rest your voice for a second. we want you to comment on the republican side of things. donald trump topped the latest polls last night. 75 polls heading into the new hampshire primary. voters turned out for him in force on tuesday. nbc national correspondent peter alexander is already in the next battleground state, south carolina. >> good morning. south carolina, where the next primary is ten days away. donald trump likes to boast he's a winner and he proved it in a huge way last night. more than doubling his closest competitor, john kasich. this is a candidate who has
7:07 am
and ran away with new hampshire. tell me it's a revolution >> reporter: donald trump, triumphant triumphant. >> we are going to make america great again. >> reporter: the brash billionaire turned politician, racking up his first win. >> we want to thank the people of new hampshire. right? do we love the people of new hampshire! >> reporter: extending an olive branch of sorts to his republican rivals. >> i wanted to congratulate the other candidates, okay? now that i got that out of the way -- >> reporter: taking aim at the democrat who carried new hampshire. >> i heard parts of bernie's speech. he wants to give away our country, folks. we're not going to let it happen. >> reporter: winning the war for second, ohio governor john kasich, whose optimistic tone resonated in an otherwise nasty primary. >> the light overcame the darkness of negative campaign. [ applause ] and you made it happen. >> reporter: earlier, he was
7:08 am
>> we plugged away and plugged away. the little engine that can. >> reporter: a week removed from an iowa celebration, marco rubio fell into fifth place, acknowledging in blunt terms that his poor debate performance cost him. >> our disappointment tonight is not on you. it's on me. it's on me. i did not -- i did not do well on saturday night, so listen to this, that will never happen again. >> reporter: jeb bush, sandwiched in the middle of the pack. >> this campaign is not dead. we're going on to south carolina. >> reporter: bush aids telling nbc news, they're rising as rubio fades. ted cruz is looking for the week. >> we go to south carolina, the palmetto state. washington liberals may find south carolina far less hospitable hospitable. >> reporter: cruz releasing a front runner. >> i got the trump action
7:09 am
>> no way, it's huge. >> what does he do? republican. >> reporter: trump firing back. >> ted cruz, the worst kind of washington insider who just can't be trusted. >> reporter: meanwhile, chris christie lagging behind in single digits. >> just not enough. not enough tonight, that's okay. >> reporter: instead of a planned trip to south carolina today, the new jersey governor will head home, where he'll decide the future of his campaign. >> a tough night for chris christie and for carly fiorina and ben carson, as well. i flew down with john kasich from new hampshire overnight. he was clearly elated, even a little bit stunned by last night's results. as he told me, i think we're really on to something, with the positive nature of this campaign. matt and savannah? >> peter alexander, thank you very much. donald trump joins us fresh off the win in new hampshire. good morning. good to have you here.
7:10 am
>> known you more than 30 years. you've always said you're a winner. last night, voters went into the polls and officially made you a winner. how does it feel? >> it's great. the people from new hampshire are great. i've had a bonding relationship with them a long time. i've been up there long before the political thing. we did better than anticipated. we would have rallies where ten times the number of people would show up than we expected. we got to see it from an early point. i think south carolina, frankly, is going to be similar to that. >> you doubled up on john kasich. you've said you are sure you can beat hillary clinton or bernie sanders. are you the favorite to be the next president of the united states? >> that, i don't know. i don't want to talk about favorites. i think we're doing very well. we have something special. two days ago, i was in south carolina and we filled up the stadium. it was packed with people. it's a movement. people want to see a smart country. they want to see us take the country back. they want great deals, not horrible deals.
7:11 am
we can't win with the military. we can't beetat isis. think of general george patton not being able to beat isis. it doesn't work that way. this country doesn't win anymore. >> new hampshire reordered things. who is your biggest competition now, is it kasich? cruz in south carolina? >> great question. i think all of them. they're all accomplished people. they're governors and senators. they're all very good people. maybe, you know. but i think, probably, i wouldn't want to pick one. they're close enough, and we'll see what happens. they're all accomplished people. >> it's serious now, mr. trump. i mean, now people are going to take a good, hard look at you and say, can he be the leader of the free world? can he be our president? >> they've been looking at me, matt, six months. >> now this new hampshire win says, this guy is on track. when it comes to parents in this
7:12 am
be able to look up to the president. they want them to be able to admire the president. you were on with us last week and we talked about being more subdued. you said, i'm trying to become more statesmanlike, more subdued. this week, you continued using some words, repeating a word that a supporter said to you at an event that i'm not going to repeat here. is that satstatesmanlike? >> we had 5,000 people in a snowstorm, in a blizzard, and everybody was having a good time. a woman, not a man, shouted out this word, and then shouted it out again. >> she didn't have to repeat it. >> we had a good time and it wasn't the worst thing in the world. >> you're a presidential candidate and we have to bleep it, is that what you want to show? >> we were having a tremendous time, got a standing ovation. everybody was up and down, standing, screaming. it's one of the reasons i won. you have to be yourself. now, as i get -- look, i was a good student at the best school and all that stuff.
7:13 am
i will say this, as you get closer, you act differently. we were having a good time. the people went out and voted for me and that's why we got the numbers we did. look, this country, political correctness is killing us. >> is it political correctness or good manners, temperament? >> it wasn't the worst thing in the world. it was a woman and it was a repeat. i said, you should never say that word. >> then sarcastically repeated the word. >> did i reprimand the person? >> you can't reprimand if you're going to say it yourself. when are you going to release your tax returns? >> they're being worked on now. >> what's the hold up? >> i guarantee the biggest ever in the history of what we're doing. it's complicated stuff. we will be releasing that. >> will people be surprised at the rate you pay, lower or
7:14 am
>> i fight like hell not to pay a lot of tax. every politician probably does. i watched others where they say, i want to pay taxes. i fight like hell not to pay taxes. i hate the way the government spends my money. >> big winner in new hampshire, donald trump, thank you for being here. >> thank you very much. now to the surprise second place finisher on the republican side. ohio governor john kasich. he made his way to south carolina over night and will look to capitalize there on this momentum. congratulations. we're very happy. >> i saw you on your bus in new hampshire, and you definitely were feeling this coming. what do you think made the difference in the final days? was it something you said, or was it the faltering of other candidates? >> no, i don't think it was the faltering. we were on our way up anyway. we do have great grassroots people, which we'll be able to use throughout the country. we'll be building teams everywhere we are. secondly, i had a positive message.
7:15 am
only one with a really positive message. i always felt that will light could overcome the darkness in a political campaign where we could say what we're for. bringing families together, creating jobs, making sure no one gets left behind. that message was used consistently for the last -- well, i've been doing it most of my lifetime -- but a very strong message about all of that. i think, finally, it broke through, along with the fact that our tv commercials were positive. i had so many millions of dollars spent against me. we overcame it. >> i'm glad you said the light can overcome the darkness and your positive message resonated with voters. you're behind a guy who is way ahead in the polls and has a habit of when somebody gets close to him, talking about donald trump, targeting that person with negativity. can your positive message hold up under that withering attack that has claimed other
7:16 am
>> well, matt, here's the thing, somebody wants to mess with me, they're messing with the wrong guy. i'm not going to sit there and be a marshmallow and have somebody pound me. look, i was a congressman, balanced the budget, i was the military reformer, i've been the governor of ohio. all those positions, we've seen jobs created and problems solved. we're not going to sit back and take a pounding from anybody, we're going to tell people what we're for. in my speech last night at the close of the voting, you know, it's gotten rave reviews, which i'm grateful for. i'm talking about bringing people together and reviving the spirit of america. >> governor kasich, you gave your resume. it's impressive. you've been in government many, many years. not to take anything away from your strong finish last night, donald trump still beat you by 20 something points. this is a year where it seems
7:17 am
they might feel you represent that. >> he had 65% that didn't vote for him. it's just that there are so many people that when you take the votes, you don't have them together, he gets that kind of a showing. we're going to see how it goes, savannah. nobody thought i'd run for president. no one thought i'd raise the money when i decided to. no one thought i'd make the debates or get to new hampshire. as some people have said, in fact, my two daughters said, daddy, we win you won because we're not so sure mr. trump will last. but we'll see what happens. we'll see what happens. it's a long, long road, all the way to the nomination. at some point, we're going to be going to the midwest. we're going to be going to pennsylvania and ohio and michigan and illinois. just wait. >> all right. ohio governor john kasich, appreciate it. >> thank you. thank you very much. let's bring chuck todd back in. chuck, on to the republicans now.
7:18 am
john kasich had a good night, as well. who had the worst night? >> i think -- i guess you have to say chris christie. he went for the kill on marco rubio. it didn't help him. it certainly hurt rubio. marco rubio arguably had equally as bad of a night. christie did worse. i don't know -- he's not going to qualify for saturday's debate, as far as the criteria. he probably has to reassess his campaign. that's why he's in new jersey this morning and not south carolina. marco rubio is also on the ropes. south carolina, matt, is going to be a blood bath. we have about ten days. jeb bush, trump, ted cruz, john kasich, marco rubio. it could be a circular firing squad. who goes after who? when you asked donald trump who his chief rival is now, i'd say ted cruz. he won one. as things go south, he should have a natural constituency out there. i think you'll see cruz and trump fight it out. bush, kasich and rubio fight to see who can be the last
7:19 am
republican. >> chuck todd, thank you very much. we have ary ricola on the way to you. let's get a check of the weather from mr. roker. >> we have a lot of cold air coming in. also, a beautiful day out west. they could use rain in southern california today. 88 degrees. you look at what's happening in minneapolis today. 13 for a high. wind chills near zero. we have a little bit of a clipper bringing lake-effect snow that will continue to pile up over the next 48 hours. all year long you worked hard to take care of business and take care of the people who matter most. so when your tax refund arrives, make it go a little further at walmart. from electronics, to home decor, even tires,

7:27 am
hour and we asked him if he's now the overall favorite in the presidential race. >> i think we're doing very well. we have somomhing very special. two days ago i was in south carolina. we filled up the stadium. it was backed with people. and just something going on. it's a movement. >> senator marco rubio ended up in fifth place in new hampshire. he is still in manchester this morning and he joins us live. senator rubio, thanks for getting up earlrl >> i'm'mp early every day. thank you. >> up late and up early in this case. you said last night to your supporters you were disappointed. you were straightforward. you said the loss was not on them, it was on you. this was the first time you owned up to saturday night's debate not being a great performance and having an effect. do you think you should have saidomething about that sooner and maybe that would have salvaged the moment? >> that's not the right analysis of it.
7:28 am
i don't think people at home analyze it the way the media does. 72 hours later the media fixated on it. people heard something bad happened saturday night with marco rubio.o. when you l lk aat the margins between third place and fifth place, a couple thousand votes, that's enough. i want my supporters to know they ran a great campaign, they worked hard, did everything they needed to do. to the extent we finished shorter is because of me. something that's never going to happen again. we have eight debates. i did well except for 90 seconds of it. this election is too important. it's not just about winning the election. it's about what's at stake here. i think in the months and weeks to come, you won't see someone work harder, not just to run the country but to turn the senate around. >> you believe it was a bad
7:29 am
political analysts say it was something more serious. it was exposeing a major flaw in you as a candidate and they translate that to a lack of depth. how do you translate that? >> that's absurd. if you look at this race, no one in this race has shown greater depth, knowledge, understanding or better judgment on the foreign policy issues than i have. and the fact of the matter is, that debate was 2 hours and 15 minutes long. i got asked a host of questions on complex things. i answered every single one of though questionses with as much depth or more than anyone in the race. i'm not worried abobo that part. i think our record on the issues are clear and moving forward we'll make it clear. there's not an issue before this country that i cannot discuss in depth with anyone in this race. when it comes to fororgn policy and national security, i have more experience and have done more work than all the other candidates remaining in the republican side combined. i look forward to that conversation as well as we head intotoouth carolina. >> how do yououombat that perception if it takes hold, that, you know, you are somebody
7:30 am
or as one person said it from another campaign, you're a mile wide but an inch deep? >> well, i'm on the air with you right now. you can ask me any question you want on any policy issue you would like and we ask discuss those in depth. i don't know what you're going to ask me. iio this every day. i don't think that's the narrative taking hold. i think the narrative that night was, we had a bad debate, people hed it on the news. what hurts us is you can't get any other message out because that's all they want to ask about. that's on me. we're going to get back to the fundamentals that made us semifinal in the past. i'll be the nominee but it's going to take us a little longer. >> you saw the margin of victory for donald trump. john kasich had a good night. in your heart, do you think anyone can get donald trump from getting the nomination right now? >> sure. donald trump is not going to be the republican nominee but new hampshire has been a state badly hurt by losing jobs do china, closg of mills, loss of
7:31 am
trump tapped into thatat that's an important topic and needs to be discussed, without a doubt. to be president, you can't go around telling people what's wrong. you have to tell people how you're going to dpiction it. we just had a conversation about ath depth. where is the policy idea about how we're going to bring manufacturing back? it's not enough to say you're going to do it. voters need to know how you're going to do itit i don't know how you continue to run a campaign from south carolina and beyond without specifically outlining policy issues. i can tell youe have a plan. i know exactly how we'll bring manufacturing back. that's why we need energy reform. that's why we need tax reform. our tax code here is among the most expxpsive in the industrialized world. that's why we need regulatory reform. they put americans had a disadvantage competitively globalal.
