good morning on this super wednesday. right to the super tuesday blow-out for donald trump and hillary clinton resonating with voters across the country. >> clinton racked up seven states winning crucial races across the south but sanders still in the game picking up four state, minnesota, colorado and oklahoma. clinton has more than a thousand delegates while sanders is closing in on 400. >> then on the republican side trump also racking up seven states, ted cruz won three races and marco rubio got his first win in minnesota. trump clinched the bulk of the delegates bringing his total to nearly 300. >> republicans handing donald trump his overwhelming win. >> trump delivered his victory speech at his lavish club in palm beach, florida, where the next primary will be in two weeks and took direct aim at hillary clinton and marco rubio.
abc's paula faris was there. good morning, paula. >> reporter: reena and kendis, the trump camp tells us they're extremely happy and really the things that stood out the number of first time voters and crossover voters who voted for donald trump on super tuesday. >> we'll make america great again, folks. we'll make it great again. i watched hillary's speech and she wants to make america whole again. >> reporter: the significance of the fact he had this at headquarters in quarter cannot be lost on anyone. first and foremost florida is marco rubio's home state and right now trump has a commanding lead over rubio. >> i know it was a very tough night for marco rubio. he had a tough night but he worked hard. he is a lightweight as i said many times before. >> reporter: referencing his significant ties to the state of florida, the fact that he had this event at his campaign headquarters at the mar-a-lago which he own, can't overlook that, as well. he's clearly got his sights set
on the next couple of weeks. >> sure seems like that, paula, thank you very much. trump congratulated ted cruz on his win in delegate rich texas. >> he won di double digits speaking to abc news cruz used the win as a rallying cry saying he's the only candidate who can beat trump. >> so i hope that republicans instead make the decision let's come together, let's unite behind the only campaign that has beaten donald not once, not twice but three times across the country. >> all right, well, cruz labeled his victories in oklahoma, alaska and texas as a central turning point for his campaign. >> a couple of bright spots for marco rubio. besides his win he nearly beat trump in virginia after the p l polls closed, the florida senator spoke to a crude in miami criticizing donald trump. >> 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 it is having all across the country. we are seeing in state after state his numbers coming down, our numbers going up. >> in his upbeat speech rubio viewed to win his home state of florida later this month. it was a dismal showing for ben carson but the neurosurgeon not ready to give up and told a crowd of 200 people i'm not ready to quit. in every state except alabama he received less than 10% of the vote. >> let's turn to the democrats and hillary clinton was propelled to victory by voters looking for political experience and she steamrolled sanders across the south enjoying strong support from african-american voters and clinton celebrated in miami. abc's matt gutman is there. >> reporter: reena, kendis, we saw a very confident hillary clinton here giving what wasn't so much a victory speech but certainly seemed like a speech
by a victor in front of an energized crowd here. >> i believe what we need in america today is more love and kindness. >> reporter: earlier as they were waiting for the returns to come in we saw them boo when donald trump was announced as the projected winner of certain stays and cheered loudly when she won states and it seemed that everybody was looking beyond bernie sanders and beyond these primaries. in fact she focused the guts on landing body blows against donald trump. >> this country belongs to all of us, not just those at the top. [ cheers and applause ] not just to people who will look one way, worship one way or even think one way. >> reporter: of course, the fact that the event was held here tonight very important. she really hopes to be able to clinch perhaps the nomination here in florida and in just two
weeks' time. kendis, reena. >> thank you so much. bernie sanders is not ready to give up. >> he pulled off a resounding victory although it was in his home state of vermont and defeated clinton in three other races, he's making it clear that the fight is far from over. >> tonight you're going to see a lot of election results come in, and let me remind you of what the media often forgets about, these are not -- this is not a general election, it's not winner take all. if you get -- >> sanders still has support of young voters and he raised more than $42 million during the month of february alone. and we're finding like some really interesting findings from the exit polls which really is a good gauge of how voters are feeling. now, when asked should the next president come from outside the political establishment, 50% of republicans said yes. only 15% of democrats agreed with that. >> on the flip side when asked should the next president have experience, 81% of democrats in
blue said yes. 39% of the republicans in red. they want someone with experience, as well. just not as many. all the candidates on both sides apparently staying in the race despite the commanding leads held by both trump and clinton. >> a little earlier we spoke with our political team. >> the bottom line we have looked through republican divisions and the party is not divided. they're embracing donald trump. you see massachusetts and alabama and tennessee and arkansas and all these states regional diversity and ideological diversity inside the party and the thing is if you judge a party by its voters donald trump owns this party right now. it's just that the leaders are saying something different and they're not comfortable with it. the voters are speaking very clearly and very similarly across states. >> clinton looks absolutely unstoppable right now and she began this campaign as someone who was the likely nominee. she was the presumed democratic nominee. now she's earned it. she had that scare in iowa. she took a huge hit in new
hampshire. she's really come back now and tonight we really see her sailing out of super tuesday with that strong lead that really she's earned. >> and do stay with abc news for more super tuesday results. live team coverage and analysis on "good morning america." well, still ahead, breaking right now, a train derailment forcing evacuations. >> and severe weather, a powerful tornado causing damage, planes sliding off the runway at one of the country's busiest airports. where it's all heading. plus back on earth, scott kelly touching down on earth after nearly a year in space.
