6:50 pm
>> announcer: from nbc news world headquarters in new york, this is "nbc nightly news" with kate snow. good evening. on a night when donald trump is still riding high off a big victory in south carolina and jeb bush is out of the race, the question tonight, does trump have the republican nomination
6:51 pm
and in the democratic race, a similar question. is hillary clinton slowly making her way to the nomination with a win in nevada yesterday? we begin tonight with katy tur in atlanta, where trump held a rally today. >> it's beautiful, thank you. >> reporter: donald trump's grip on the nomination is getting tighter, and he knows it. to a crowd of more than 5,000 in atlanta. >> we won with everything, tall people, short people, fat people, skinny people. just won. >> reporter: trump sweeping all of south carolina's congressional districts, banking all of the states' 50 del grats, despite marco rubio's high profile endorsement and ted cruz focus on evangelicals. 34% to cruz's 26%. trump may have won, but it was a rocky week starting with him calling the last republican president a liar. >> they lied. they said there were weapons of mass destruction. >> reporter: by thursday, smearing the pope as disgraceful. >> no leader, especially a religious leader should have the
6:52 pm
religion or faith. >> reporter: and on friday, in his last rally before the vote, recounting an internet myth praising mass killing by a u.s. general more than a century ago. >> and he took the 50 terrorists, and he took 50 men, and he dipped 50 bullets in pig's blood. >> reporter: exit polls showing that like in new hampshire, the majority of trump's voters decided on him months ago, meaning his myriad of controversies and outrageous statements just didn't matter. and nighter do his inconsistencies. on republican hot button issues like funding planned parenthood. >> planned parenthood does a lot of good -- a really good job in a lot of different areas but not on abortion. so i'm not going to fund it if it's doing the abortion. i am not going to fund it. >> reporter: and what he meant in a 2002 howard stern radio interview where he staid he supported the iraq invasion. >> are you for invading iraq? >> yeah, i guess so. >> reporter: today unable to clarify where he stood. >> i really don't even know
6:53 pm
ago and who knows what was inside my head. >> reporter: that same exit polling showed nearly half of south carolina voters did not decide until the last minute and they mostly did not decide for donald trump. that means going forward, since the field is winnowing, he's going to have to gain not just maintain support. and if this crowd here in georgia is any indication, the campaign is comfort they'll be able to do that. >> thanks so much. among the democrats, new momentum for hillary clinton today after caucus voters in nevada decided to place their bets on her. clinton's victory over bernie sanders puts her in a stronger position going into the democratic primary in south carolina next saturday. we get more on that tonight from kristen welker. >> reporter: hillary clinton riding a wave of fresh momentum. >> is this a great night or what? >> reporter: after a decisive victory in critical nevada. >> some may have doubted us, about but we never doubted each other. >> reporter: to bernie sanders, the loss is a big blow, today
6:54 pm
at a baptist church in south carolina. >> reporter: and it was black voters who largely delivered clpt's victory, choosing her by a chopping 76% to 22% after she aggressively engaged them. and rallying with congressman jim clyburn and morgan freeman, who released a new ad today. >> just like she's always stood with us. >> reporter: secretary clinton's embrace of president obama's policies as well as her increasingly up close and personal style may have also propelled her, evident during the nsnbc telemundo town hall, husband had been deported. >> i want to tell you i will end the three and ten-year bar provision so that you do not have to face that ever again. >> reporter: but there were also obstacles she must overcome. latinos chose sanders by single digits, and younger voters picked the vermont voter by 72%. >> we will do well when young
6:55 pm
people come out. >> reporter: today clinton celebrating her victory, but also questioning some polls, showing a sanders' lead among latinos. >> there's a lot of evidence we did very, very well with every group of voter. >> reporter: both candidates now looking forward to south carolina, where clinton has a big lead and super tuesday when 12 states will be in play. >> if she wins big in south carolina, as some people think she will do, then she's going to have tremendous momentum going into next weekend and the super tuesday states. so i think it's just a real problem for bernie sanders. >> reporter: clinton is now on a two-day fund-raising swing in california, and while sanders outraised clinton for the first time last month, clinton has more than twice what sanders has on hand. kate. >> kristen welker, out of las vegas. thank you. when we come back, one little girl's emotional plea for president obama. you totaled your brand new car. p nobody's hurt, but there will still be pain.
6:56 pm
it comes when your insurance company says they'll only pay p three quarters of what it takes to replace it. what are you supposed to do? drive three quarters of a car? p now if you had liberty mutual new car replacement, you'd get your whole car back. p i guess they don't want you driving around on three wheels. smart. with liberty mutual new car replacement, we'll replace the full value of your car. see car insurance in a whole new light. liberty mutual insurance. constipated? trust number one doctor recommended dulcolax use dulcolax tablets for gentle overnight relief suppositories for relief in minutes and stool softeners for comfortable relief of hard stools. dulcolax, designed for dependable relief every day you read headlines about businesses being hacked and intellectual property being stolen. that is cyber-crime test test test test test test
6:57 pm
test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test test
6:58 pm
he has a sharp wit. a winning smile. and no chance of getting an athletic scholarship. and that is why you invest. the best returns aren't just measured in dollars. this is of course president obama's last year in office, a fact that has at least one of his supporters quite upset. watch what happens when this 4-year-old girl's grandmother, caprina harris, explains that mr. obama will no longer be the president. >> no! >> i know. he can only serve two terms, and his term is up. >> no! no!
6:59 pm
we've got to vote for another president. >> i'm not ready. >> huh? >> i'm not ready for a new one. >> the video has had well over 2 million views on facebook. even the president himself responded, saying, the girl should dry her tears because i'm not going anywhere and that once i leave the white house, i'll be a citizen just like her, and when she grows up, she can get involved right alongside me. speaking of the president, a pair of bald eagles who happened to be known as mr. president and the first lady are nesting a pair of eggs at the national arboretum in washington, seen her on a 24-hour eagle cam. they're expected to hatch in the middle of next month. the eagles built their nest in 2014 and raised one eagle last year. these are the first bald eagles to nest in the national arboretum in almost 70 years. and that will do it for "nbc nightly news" on this sunday. lester holt will be here tomorrow.
7:00 pm
york, and i'll see you tomorrow on msnbc from nevada on the eve of the republican caucus. for all of us here at nbc news, have a great night. what is going on? why are they calling for crime scene tape? i felt helpless. i started crying and screaming because i knew it was my worst
