the last week. you had that debate last week where donald trump started taking on george w. bush in a way that may have been dangerous in a republican electorate. his battle with the pope and how that played out. you had his comment about obamacare, his comments about his own opposition to the iraq war being questioned. so there was a lot of news in that final week of the republican primary. and if nearly half 45% didn't make up their mind until the last week that is a lot of fluidity in the race that could have occurred as we wait and see. >> so much and yesterday i was at a trump rally, i met a lot of people who said that they were undecided, same goes for rubio rallies, jeb bush rallies, across the board. so many people who said they were leaning one way, weren't so sure. and boy, were they paying attention to every little nook and cranny of news you were talking about. it was incredibly fluid and everybody in the campaigns understood that which is why they were trying to influence so much. >> we'll continue to watch the events unfolding, the republican primary in south carolina.

general election back in 2004, pretty competitive. i remember covering george w. bush spending a lot of time in wisconsin, but it's not that surprising that hillary clinton or bernie sanders would do so well against a republican because a republican hasn't won there since reagan in 1984. thought they came close, karl rove was at george w. bush headquarters was chomping at the bit to get it but never got it. >> although he knew how to pronounce the name of the field where the green bay packers play and not john kerry. >> not waukesha. >> as you might remember. anders anderson? >> small percentage of the vote in. seeing sanders and cruz with a lead, but again, very small number of votes actually in, still to be counted, still to be watched. michael smerconish, in terms of a convincing lead, a convincing win, how important is that -- how important is the actual percentage for cruz and for sanders or is a win a win and that enough? >> i think it's more significant for bernie sanders because i think the argument that sanders needs to make is that he's winning huge in these next severa

out. he's right. and in fact arizona and george with the two states that the obama campaign looked hard at to see if they make a run at them. i think him making roads with some of these blue collar workers as suggested there, supposes that he doesn't lose votes anywhere else. in those states. and i think that that is a wrong calculation. i think that she is likely to pick up as many as she loses because of the trade offs and constituencies here. so, i think they have to focus on those states, the clinton campaign has to focus on those states for the reasons that van has been talking about. but, i do think that it's more complicated than a zero sum game as to where these workers go. >> we're going to take a short break, we'll be right back. and . the surface pro is very intuitive. with the pressure of my hand i can draw lightly, just like i would with a real pencil. i've been a forensic artist for over 30 years. i do the composite sketches which are the bad guy sketches. you need good resolution, powerful processor because the computer has to start thinking as fast as my brain does.

not gone republican since george h.b. bush. never going to take that away. let's just say i pick these two, let's say donald trump gets two, where else does he go? that's a fascinating question. obviously florida is one of the biggest prizes, hillary clinton believes with the latino vote. suburban vote that she can keep -- what if donald trump now won florida? this is the chess campaign. how do you change the map? can donald trump put these states in play? if so, where does hillary clinton look? let's say donald trump -- i don't think that one we should do that just yet. let's leave this blue. donald trump wins these three. where does trump go? he's going to have to try in smaller states, like in iowa, new hampshire, starts to even out the map. so as we begin the calculations and the thinking about the general election, there is no question for donald trump the first test is change the map and the industrial states that have been reliably blue for quite a long time. if you're hillary clinton, what are you looking at? you think it's possible, possible with a high latino turnout th

it relates to debates, you can overplay your hand the way that gore did with george w. bush, the way that i think that vice president biden did with sarah palin. because the other person there is so low expectations for the other person to perform well on policy, you know you have the upper hand and you overplay that upper hand to such a degree that it comes off a little bit schoolmarmish rather than coming off as polished and professional and a person who is versed on policy. >> i hear you. >> it's really a tricky thing. >> it is a tricky thing, and this is just an example of why it might be tricky. this is from trump because you know we're debating in real time these days. if hillary clinton stands on that stage and presents her economic plan, donald trump could respond like he did in this tweet. quote, crooked hillary said her husband is going to be in charge of the economy. if so, he should run, not her. will he bring the energizer to d.c.? so, see, he won't come back, for example, with his own plan. he will just say, you know what? you just said your husband knew how to handle t
