♪ throwing up some words, some freestyling that you never heard ♪ ♪ constitution, the potus i'm freestyling you know this ♪ >> "first look" starts right now. and good morning. i'm dara brown. today is the day for what is shaping up to be another super tuesday. but the story that continues to dominate the political landscape is the violence and protests at gop front-runner donald trump's events. a sheriff's office was mulling charges for inciting a riot after a man at a trump rally sucker punched a protester last week. but concluded the evidence does not meet the requisites of the law under north carolina statute. adding we will not be seeking a warrant or indictment against mr. trump or his campaign. at a rally in florida, sarah palin didn't mince words about her opinion of the protesters. >> what we don't have time for
is all that petty, punk [ bleep ] little thuggery stuff that's been going on with these quote/unquote protesters. >> well, this serves as a back drop for the contest in ohio, missouri and north carolina and florida. and john kasich is looking for first time win in the home state of ohio and marco rubio's home state of florida could be his last stand. we have both sides covered starting with nbc's peter alexander. >> reporter: it's march madness for republicans. >> the people that are supporters of donald trump want to see america be great again. >> reporter: chris christie and sarah palin who is headed back to alaska. her husband todd seriously injured in a snowmobile accident. >> thank you for your prayers for my husband.

nomination. peter alexander, nbc news, westerville, ohio. we have protesters! >> i'm kasie hunt. democrats unleashing on donald trump at an msnbc town hall. >> when you are inciting mob violence which is what trump is doing, people remember mob violence that led to lynching. >> this guy is a pathological liar. very hard to fact check them because he never has any facts. >> reporter: sanders criticism part of a calculated strategy after the republican front-runner started name checking sanders at rallies. >> bernie, our communist friend. >> bernie sanders is the strongest candidate in the general election against trump. i think hillary clinton has a number of flaws as a candidate which trump will be able to exploit. >> reporter: a mad dash and the big prize is ohio. >> winning ohio is huge for the sanders campaign. provides enthusiasm for his supporters and money to continue. >> reporter: it's test to see if
clinton can make inroads with young voters. >> as millennials your voice is important. >> reporter: "snl" mocking the attempts to appeal to them by sounding more like sanders. >> you're angry, i'm angry too. because the top 10% of the top 1% controls 90% of the nation. >> reporter: but clinton might have the last laugh. if she holds on to her commanding delegate lead. kasie hunt, charlotte, north carolina. 793 delegates are up for grabs tonight for the democrats. for the republicans 358 delegates are at stake. and while much of the focus on the gop side is on the winner take all florida and ohio, don't overlook illinois, missouri and north carolina, which actually have more combined delegates. and msnbc is the place for live coverage and analysis in today's make or break primary results. all night coverage
