a big boom and it lights up social media tonight. people hearing and feeling it. the question tonight, what caused it? >> first at 11:00, super tuesday. results pouring in for the biggest night so far on the road to the white house. good evening, the big winner tonight for the republicans, donald trump. victories in five states. ted cruz winning two states including his home state of texas. >> meanwhile, hillary clinton a big winner for the democrats. bernie sanders winning two states including his home state of vermont. >> eyewitness news reporter josh einiger following the democratic race for us. we begin with political reporter dave evans in florida at trump headquarters where the republican frontrunner spoke tonight. >> first of all, the reason why we're in florida is because donald trump is already looking ahead to the march 15th primary here in this state. right now we're in the white and gold ballroom where he held that news conference with reporters earlier this evening. if you look at the 595 delegates on the republican side that were
donald trump took about 250, 251 of those delegates as the estimate. a very, very good evening for him tonight. he took aim at marco rubio who has been very critical of trump in the last couple days. also he looked ahead to the general election and took a hit hard at hillary clinton. >> once we get all of this finished, i'm going to go after one person. that's hillary clinton. on the assumption she's allowed to run which is a big assumption. i don't know if she's going to be allowed to run. i think that's frankly going to be an easy race. >> this was not a good night for marco rubio. he needed some stronger second place finishes somewhere in the country. that did not happen. as for ted cruz, he did win in his home state of texas. he won in neighboring oklahoma. but it is marco rubio who is hitting hard at trump because he sees this as his only path to grabbing this nomination.
to unmask the true nature of the frontrunner so far in this race. five days ago we began to explain to the american people that donald trump is a con artist. and in just five days we have seen the impact that it's having all across the country. >> after tonight, we have seen that our campaign is the only campaign that has beaten, that can beat, and that will beat donald trump. >> if there is a stop donald trump movement going on with republicans across the country, we did not see much evidence of that, at least not with voters, despite what marco rubio was saying earlier this evening in florida. he is going to have to win here on march 15th in his home state if he has any hope of stopping trump and his campaign for the nomination. for now reporting live in palm
now to the democrats and a super tuesday for hillary clinton winning big tonight with huge margins, capturing every state except vermont and oklahoma. bernie sanders taking those two states. eyewitness news reporter josh einiger at the javits center where clinton will be holding a rally tomorrow. >> according to exit poll data, more women turned out than men in the democratic primary tonight and among female voters, hillary clinton enjoyed a 32-point margin so it's not hard to understand why she had such a good night. one she'll be celebrating here at the javits center tomorrow. >> what a super tuesday. >> reporter: once inevitable, then questionable. tonight hillary clinton was once again the dominant force in the democratic primary. her win so decisive in nearly every super tuesday state, she barely mentioned her primary opponent bernie sanders, instead focusing on donald trump, and sounding a much different
>> that work is not to make america great again, america never stopped being great. instead of building walls, we're going to break down barriers and build ladders of opportunity and empowerment so every american can live up to his or her potential. >> reporter: clinton won big in the biggest states, stacking up delegates across the board. >> i have been all over this country. but the truth is, it is great to come home and see all my friends. >> reporter: tonight in his home state of vermont senator bernie sanders was able to declare victory there and pointed out with proportional representation, he did amass enough delegates to stay in the race, promising to continue all the way to the democratic convention in philadelphia. >> i know that secretary clinton and many of the establishment
