7:06 am
i spoke to one of the heads of the anti-trump movement and they say they didn't compete in any of the states that voted yesterday. they're setting their sights on super tuesday. >> peter, thank you very much. donald trump is on the phone with us now live. mr. trump, good morning. >> good morning. >> let me completely reverse my line of questioning from yesterday. i said, is it possible the weight of the attacks coming at you from other republicans have slowed your momentum. you won three of the four contests yesterday. is it possible the weight of the attacks is actually helping you? >> i think so. i mean, you see the numbers i got. in mississippi, i love the people of mississippi and michigan, and you look at what's happened. the numbers were astronomical. i'm surprised at it, matt. i'll be honest, i've never seen such negativity, such negative ads. i mean, they came at me. i heard what you said about, somebody said, what are you going to start now?
7:07 am
million on negative ads. >> the more they call you a con man and a fraud, the more your supporters dig in their heels? >> that's one of the reasons i did what i did last night. i brought out a magazine which i have. mitt romney got up last week and talked about the stakes. well, we have a great stake division. we have a great magazine. we have a great -- all of the things he talked about, you know, i have. he went through a list of things. i don't want to even do that, but what he said was a lie. it was fraudulent, and he shouldn't have done that. i understand where he's coming from. he had a very horrible loss, and he hasn't recovered from it. >> you're making me hungry. >> i know. matt, the truth is, you had a loss and he hasn't recovered. we have to recover as a party. this tremendous positive energy in the party. we're setting records going to the polls. 65% up. millions of millions of people, some people have never voted before, and they're voting for
7:08 am
they're voting in the party. >> that's a good way to get to the next question. on the election nights you've been saying, i'm a unifier. i can unify the party. yet, you do have this big segment of the party, orthodox conservative, traditional republicans, who are terrified at the prospect of your candidacy. to the extent it is on you to do so, how can you unify? how can you get them over to your side? >> okay, savannah, we have something going on that's the biggest political story all over the world, and it's what's happening with the republican party. you see it better than anybody. where millions of people are coming out and voting in the primaries, millions more than four years ago. 65% more. whereas, the democrats are down 30% and 35%. no spirit behind hillary and there never will be. there's nothing to be spirited about. what happens is we have something that if we could embrace it, we're going to have
7:09 am
instead of all of this negative stuff, i was at the tournament last week, where adam scott won, and i turn on the television and every time there is a commercial, it was a negative ad in florida about me. a horrible and false ad. these are false ads. these are disgusting, false ads that were written by people that are absolutely haters. if this party came together, matt, nobody could beat it. that's one of the things i respect. paul ryan called me, such a smart call, such a wonderful call. >> mr. trump, as always, thanks for your time. we appreciate it. >> thank you very much, matt. >> wif the e have the wines, steaks in there, magazines. >> a lot of things. >> branding has been accomplished. as we mentioned, the upset of the night wept nt to sanders stunning hillary clinton in michigan. will it reshape the democratic race and the delegate race? kristen welker has more on that. morning. >> good morning to you.
7:10 am
more delegates this morning, but it is senator sanders who has new momentum after the major upset in michigan. now, the win is significant because it shows he can be competitive in these larger, more diverse states. a lot of folks asking this morning exactly what happened. there are indications this morning that clinton's ground game in michigan may have been lacking. sanders' message resonated. he hammered clinton for supporting nafta, unpopular in michigan and throughout the midwest. even sanders seemed surprised by the win, speaking to reporters in a hastily arranged press gathering after the results came? >> what we have done is created the kind of moe mentum that we need to win. once again, this has been a fantastic night in michigan. we are very grateful. >> we're getting new poll numbers out this morning. let's take a look at florida. secretary clinton firmly in the lead.
7:11 am
to 32%. 43%. but michigan underscores that this democratic race just got a whole lot more competitive everywhere. >> kristen, thank you so much. let's bring in chuck todd, moderator of "meet the press," and steve kornacki. fellas, good morning to you. >> morning. democrats. the michigan victory for sanders, did it seem a surprise? well, maybe most to sanders and his team. what does it mean for momentum and the delegate mass? >> the delegate mass, it didn't do anything. hillary clinton got more delegates because of her dominance in mississippi. he actually lost ground. but it does mean something in momentum. i think it's a reminder to hillary clinton, she has work to do to gain trust of sort of the spectacle part of the democratic party when it comes to trade deals, this or that. the bitter she
7:12 am
the better she'll potentially be against donald trump who will go after her on the same issues. sanders won in michigan, he can win in ohio. there are northern tier states he can do well in. let's switch to the republicans. donald trump had a big night. marco rubio had a bad day with a couple of third and fourth place finishes. if florida wasn't on the calendar next tuesday, is there any way he could stay in the race? >> the performance was so bad for rubio. maybe under normal circumstances, a candidate in that situation might think about, do i even want to contest my home state? this is the problem for rubio and why it was a big win for trump last night. early voting is already underway in florida. tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of votes already in the books in florida. if marco rubio were to say, i'm going to get out of the race, let the party unite around ted cruz, even if it united from this point forward around cruz,
7:13 am
in florida. in florida, winner take all. you get 99 delegates if you win. donald trump is in a good spot right now. >> how is the effort, the anti-trump effort to take away florida, take away ohio, how is that looking this morning? >> he has a better shot at ohio than florida. john kasich is a sitting governor. you get the sense that florida republicans aren't comfortable rallying around rubio. but the ohio republicans are comfortable to rally around kasich, but it's still not looking good. kasich finished third, not second in michigan. no extra bump. of course, what we described with rubio. neither kasich nor rubio got momentum out of last night going into their home states. it's trump with the momentum. >> do we look at polling differently going forward, since there seemed to be bumps in the road? >> we are under sampling, i
7:14 am
doing it, under sampling the trump -- >> i agree. >> i'll give a pass in michigan. first democratic state in 24 years. >> he said he's pulling in non-traditional voters. >> we're not correctly polling the trump pollsters. the weekend shooting of an idaho pastor the day after he led a prayer at a ted cruz rally. the suspect taken into custody more than 2,000 miles away from the shooting at the white house. pete williams has the latest. >> the secret service says this man was arrested after throwing non-hazardous materials over the white house fence. then officers discovered he was wanted in idaho. police say the man has written that the president needed to do more to resist space aliens. >> reporter: the secret service
7:15 am
outside the white house tuesday night throwing documents and a computer flashdrive over the fence. the scene around the white house was active hours later. the 30-year-old was immediately taken into custody, putting an end to a three-day man hunt. >> i think everyone can breathe a sigh of relief that this part of the case has come to a conclusion conclusion. >> reporter: the case started in idaho where a man shot a pastor on sunday, just a day earlier, pastor tim has delivered the opening prayer for ted cruz at a campaign rally. >> you get all the glory, all the honor and all the praise for it, lord. >> reporter: remmington was walking out of his church to his car when he was shot six times, critically wounded. odom was identified as the suspect after video from the church parking lot showed a silver 2004 honda accord linked to the former marine. they believe odom flew from
7:16 am
they're baffled at how he boarded the plane in the first place. the pastor was not the only target. odom, who had a history of mental problems, revealed his plan in a letter sent to his parents and news media. >> there is a number of people that were listed in the manifesto. there is a number of u.s. senators and house of representatives people, israeli government officials. it was extensive and disturbing to us. >> authorities in idaho say the pastor who was shot in the head and back is recovering, awake and talking. for the man who was arrested, members of his family say they're grateful he was safely apprehended and nobody else was hurt. >> pete williams for us on this story, thank you. this morning, we're learning more about the american who was killed in a stabbing rampage in israel. joe bide anne ed de arrives there for key talks with leaders. kelly cobiella is following this for us. good morning.
