7:02 am
welcome to "today" on a wen wednesday morning. grab tooth sticks and stick them in savannah's eyes. she has a late night. >> the glasses are there to hide it. i was surprised you said it's wednesday morning because it's still tuesday night for me. >> late night but it was interesting. let's get to the results. start with the republicans. donald trump scored seven victories. vermont, massachusetts, virginia, tennessee, alabama, georgia and arkansas. ted cruz notched three wins, including the big prize of texas. that is his home state. he goes along there with oklahoma and alaska. marco rubio took minnesota, his first win of this race. here's how the delegate count stacks up this morning. trump with 292. 188 for cruz. 98 for marco rubio. >> on the democratic side, it was a big night for hillary clinton. virginia, tennessee, alabama, georgia, arkansas, texas and massachusetts. bernie sanders is vowing he's
7:03 am
he won in his home state of vermont, as well as in oklahoma, minnesota and colorado. take a look at the delegate count. hilary lary clinton with a commanding lead, 979 to 382 for bernie sanders. >> we have complete coverage from our decision 2016 team. let's start with nbc national correspondent peter alexander. peter, good morning to you. >> hey, matt, good morning to you. it was definitely a super tuesday for donald trump, demonstrating wide appeal from the deep south to the northeast. all said, donald trump has won ten states and collected more delegates than marco rubio and ted cruz combined. >> reporter: donald trump tallying up another impressive night. >> we could win six or seven or eight or nine. >> reporter: the billionaire boasting lopsided victories from alabama to massachusetts, and narrower ones from arkansas to virginia. >> your critics would suggest you're dividing the country and
7:04 am
>> i am a unifier. once we get all this finished, i'll go after one person, hillary clinton. >> reporter: naysayers insisting he's toxic to the brand. chris christie toned it down, trying to bring together a broken party. >> the republican party has become more dynamic and diverse. we're taking from the democrats, taking from the independents. we have more people. >> god bless the lone star state. >> reporter: by locking up wins in his delegate-rich home state of texas and oklahoma next door, with an early morning call for alaska, ted cruz strengthened his case as the best equipped to challenge trump. >> for the candidates who haven't won a state, who haven't wrapped up significant delegates, prayerfully consider coming together. uniting. that is the only way to beat donald trump.
7:05 am
>> reporter: marco rubio with his sights set on florida in two weeks captured a desperately needed win in minnesota. once again, targeted trump. >> the party of lincoln and reagan and the presidency of the united states will never be held by a con artist. i will campaign as long as it takes and wherever it takes to ensure that i am the next president of the united states. >> one of the biggest take aways from last night should be the turnout. consider this, 15 states have voted. 15 republican states have now had numbers, record turnouts, except for vermont. compare 2008, when barack obama swept to victory in the white here's how they compare. the parties effectively trading places. on the right, 2008. democrats with 8.2 million voters in the states that voted in primaries on super tuesday. the republicans with 5 million. this time around, the almost exact opposite. the republicans with 8.3 million
7:06 am
the democrats with 5.5 million. matt and savannah? >> peter, thank you very much. donald trump says he deserves a lot of the credit for that. >> it's a telling number we just showed. with wins in seven states last night, hillary clinton has taken full command of the democratic race this morning. with victory in her sights, her campaign is increasingly focusing on donald trump. nbc's kristen welker is following that part of the story this morning. good morning. >> good morning to you. hillary clinton has major momentum this morning after resounding victories all across the south. fueled in large part by huge african-american support. bernie sanders still insists he can stop her, but it's going to be a lot tougher now. >> reporter: clinton securing her front runner status tuesday, sweeping the south, winning seven states in all. >> now this campaign moves forward to the motor city and beyond. >> reporter: even pulling off a victory in massachusetts, defeating the vermont senator in
7:07 am
>> this country belongs to all of us, not just those at the top. >> reporter: as clinton marchs s marches forward, sanders' chances are narrowing. >> i am proud to bring vermont values all across this country. >> reporter: tuesday, he claimed victory in his home state of vermont and wins in oklahoma, colorado and minnesota. >> thank you, bernie. >> reporter: vowing to fight on. >> by the end of tonight, we are going to win many hundreds of delegates. >> reporter: still, clinton is setting her sights on the battle that may lie ahead. a face-off with donald trump in november. >> america never stopped being great. we have to make america whole. >> reporter: painting herself as the anti-trump.
7:08 am
america today is more love and kindness. >> reporter: the republican front runner returning fire, signaling, if nominated, he'll use the controversy over her e-mails as one of his biggest weapons. >> what she did was a criminal act. if she's allowed to run, i would be very, very surprised. >> the rhetoric we're hearing on the other side has never been lower. >> while clinton is leading by hundreds of delegates this morning, her aides don't think she can put the race out of reach until mid to late march. she holds a rally in new york tonight, while sanders will hold a breakfast and lay out the path forward, a sign he has no intention of getting out any time soon. savannah? >> kristen welker, thank you. let's take a closer look at the super tuesday results. chuck todd is moderator of "meet the press," also up all night. >> yes, ma'am. >> any other election cycle, if anybody did this well on super tuesday, having won the early states, you'd be saying, the race is over.
7:09 am
>> the party leaders would be falling all over themselves, excited about this leader who is bringing enthusiasm and new voters and doing all this winning. but it's not the case with donald trump. >> instead, we're seeing the remaining in the race looking at an increasingly difficult path to the nomination. what could they do at this point? >> he has over a hundred delegate lead and we haven't assigned all the delegates from super tuesday. he'll likely get over 300. even though a hundred, you think, it can't be much, but it is significant in the way the process works. they basically have 13 days. there's a lot of primaries and caucuses by march 15th. obviously, we're spending a lot of time. we'll be talking about florida and ohio. why? marco rubio and john kasich. the game now, they can't get the nomination of their own. ted cruz, marco rubio. >> they can't get to the magic number. >> without a contested convention. donald trump is the only one to get the contested number.
7:10 am
i don't know where marco rubio can win before florida. i don't know where john kasich can win before ohio. cruz might get a few victories, but trump is going to win most of the states. starting perhaps with michigan six days from now. >> we'll continue this conversation in a moment, but let's look at the democrats. people need to look at the delegates and see why pundits like yourself are saying this is a tougher road for bernie sanders. >> few things. first of all, there's that gap. a 600 delegate gap there, number one. if you take out the super delegates, which people know those are party leaders that have endorsed her, she'd have a 200 delegate lead. but i want to focus here. the orange are the states clinton won. this is a lot of african-american voters that dominated these primaries last night. bernie sanders did pathetic with these voters. if you can't win these voters --
7:11 am
you know what, roker? finally, this machine is getting use. >> he's sensitive about the map. >> good-bye. >> lick it while we come over here and let nicolle and matt in on this. >> that's something you don't hear every day. >> nicolle wallace is joining us. trump has a great night. cruz had a better than expected night, and not a great night for marco rube io. play the role of rubio, staying in the race? >> there is still an animated endeavor to stop trump from reaching the magic number of 1,200 plus delegates. that is all that rubio can hope for, in terms of the results and the delegate count in the primaries. he no longer has a path of getting 1,200 himself. >> chuck, we watched as donald trump took to the stage. who was that guy? it was not the donald trump that we've seen over the last six months.
7:12 am
he complimented ted cruz. didn't call him a liar. couple shots at marco rubio. is that the trump of the future, and how long can he stay in that character? >> i don't know. we just had this conversation, and i singled her out with this conversation. >> three hours ago. >> yesterday, she's going, you know, if he could get act like a statesman -- >> for a minute. >> well, he did it for a few minutes yesterday. the problem with trump, one step forward and two steps back. if that trump can sustain this temperament for 13 more days, it's all he has to do, until march 13th. if he can, he'll be the nominee and they won't be able to stop him at the convention. but the trump we've seen has never been able to sustain temperamentally that persona. >> remember when we interviewed trump that one time? he said, i'm trying to be statesmanlike, then he was dropping a world at the drop ing that word at the rally.
7:13 am
last night, we coined a term, establishment fantasy. is that what it is or is there a possibility? >> it is a possibility because in the cycle, everything is possible. everything is on the table. you would have called a contested convention an impossibility three months ago but it's also on the table. >> maybe i'm slow on the uptake, but if the plan is to stop donald trump at the convention, wouldn't the republican establishment want all of these guys to stay in the race, to keep dividing up the delegates? >> absolutely. i think in an odd way, yes. not only that, hope you get mitt romney to file late in the california primary. will there be a non-aggression pact between cruz, rubio and kasich? ohio. good luck. we endorse you. you. john kasich says, i want my rubio. if that is the plan, i just
7:14 am
campaigns can work together like that. >> no evidence of that cooperation. >> it's also really, really hard. it's really difficult to deprive trump of the nomination. not because of the masses and numbers, but because of the frosty of his -- ferocity of his supporters. >> rubio almost won virginia mostly from democrats trying to help him out, but it didn't work. >> matt asked for a quick answer. >> that was like two and a half minutes. i don't know how that went. >> guys, thanks. >> i'm going to go mess around with that board. >> thank you very much. hallie jackson spent the night covering ted cruz's campaign. she caught up with him after he addressed his supporters in houston. good morning to you. >> good morning, matt. ted cruz is already looking ahead to kentucky ansas where he'll be today. after cheering the results of
7:15 am
at his party, he did what he had to do in texas, won, and bought himself more time to try to make his case that republicans, including his rivals, should unite around him as the best chance of stopping trump. >> where you go from here, how do you get the republican nomination? >> at this point, there have been 15 states that have voted. only one candidate has beaten donald trump. that's been us. >> should somebody drop out? >> i think all of them love this country and are putting this country first. if it becomes clear to a candidate that that candidate does not have a path to the nomination, has not been able to win a state in 15 contests, hasn't been able to rack up considerable delegates, there comes a point, do you want donald trump to be the nominee? if trump is the nominee, republicans get clobbered. i think people are going to look at the numbers, look at the results, and consider what to do. it is my hope that as a party, we come together and say, stop
7:16 am
do not nominate a candidate who will drive the party off a cliff. >> how do you beat donald trump when he has performed as well as he's performed tonight? >> we have to get one on one. head to head. i don't just beat donald trump, i beat him resoundingly. where he benefits now, he has everyone else being fractured and divided. it's my hope the party will say, it is reckless. at a time when the stakes have never been higher, it's reckless to roll the dice and nominate donald trump. donald trump may be the one candidate on the face of the planet that hillary clinton can beat. the democrats are celebrating. we can't let it happen. i don't think republicans want the general election to consist of two rich new york liberals, one republican and one democrat, running against each other. we should nominate a real conserve tiff and ative and i hope that's what we're going to do. >> cruz is not well-liked by colleagues in the senate, but he
7:17 am
backup from lindsey graham, who says the establishment may be in a position where they have to rally around cruz to stop trump. the senator telling me, senator cruz, that is, that he'd welcome the support. >> the establishment rallying around one of the ultimate outsiders? >> apparently. we'll see how this shapes up. >> hallie, thank you very much. we'll have more on the impact of super tuesday and the races moving forward in a little while. breaking news in the search for malaysia airlines flight 370. nbc news learned investigators believe another piece of debris may have been found off the coast of africa. tom costello has been on this story for two years and has the breaking news. good morning. >> nbc news learned a piece of debris was discovered on a sand bank off the mossambiqub coast.

7:31 am
states. marco rubio picked up his first victory, taking the minnesota caucus. but bolstered by three victories of his own, ted cruz is calling on his rivals to drop out and let him go one on one against trump. >> so long as the field remains divided, donald trump's path to the nomination remains more likely. and that would be a disaster for republicans. for conservatives. and for the nation. >> over on the democratic side, hillary clinton added to her massive delegate lead. she won seven states, with a strong showing in the south. she started to sound like a candidate, looking ahead to the general election. >> the stakes in this election have never been higher. and the rhetoric we're hearing on the other side has never been lower.

us and them is wrong, and we're not going to let it work. >> bernie sanders won four states last night and vowed to take his fight against clinton to the end. all the way to the convention. let's get more from peter alexander. good morning. >> hey, matt and savannah. we want to break down some of the numbers from last night. these are things that stuck out to us at nbc's exhibit polls. donald trump bringing out huge numbers of republicans. look at this. when you consider how well he did among republicans without college degrees. he has a narrow advantage among those who have college degrees. those who don't have a college degree, donald trump trounced his opponents, winning 54% of the vote. he faces challenges. this is from ted cruz's home state, the biggest prize last night in texas. 25% of voters in texas said that they were dissatisfied with
7:33 am
only 25% said they were satisfied. 75% said they were dissatisfied. hillary clinton with another strong showing last night. to win this fall, she's going to have to bring together young democratic voters. look what we witnessed again last evening. among the democratic voters under the age of 30, hillary clinton won barely 1/3 of them. among those between 30 and 59, she won 62%. those 60 years of age and older, 72% of them sided with hillary clinton. couple things to watch as we go forward. back to you. >> peter alexander, thanks. in other news, this morning, royal caribbean's anthem of the seas has arrived back in its home port of new jersey after the second ill-fated voyage in a month.
