11:00 pm
especially in the authorities. the myth of nuclear energy, of it being economic, safe and clean has been swept away. >> "fukushima: a nuclear story," narrated by willem dafoe. this is al jazeera america in new york at the look at today's top stories. a big night for senator ted cruz sending a strong message to republican party and to front runner donald trump that trump is not necessarily going to cruise to the g.o.p. nomination >> many policies have come out that an easily beat hm politicians live and-- hillary clinton politician live and die by
11:01 pm
the polls, but where do they come from? a look at that in a deeper look tonight. thousands are stranded on the greek macedonian-border. also many people coming to south florida and they may not be welcomed we begin tonight with what has turned out to be a bad day for marco rubio. ted cruz and donald trump both walking away with two victories each in today's primaries and caucus, zero for marco rubio and for john kasich. both the republicans and democrats were vying for delegates in louisiana. there is a democrat only caucus in nebraska.
11:02 pm
109 delegates on the democratics side and 155 for g.o.p. maine will be voting tomorrow. looking at the numbers for the republicans first started in kansas where ted cruz has cruised to a victory take 48% and donald trump financialing second with 23%, who also takes maine with 45 and donald trump louisiana at 44% and kentucky with 45 to donald trump. so two and two. bernie sanders takes two on out of three from hillary clinton. sanders winning in kansas with a resounding 61% of the vote, 33 delegates available there, and in nebraska with 55% of the vote, 25 delegates available there. hillary clinton meanwhile declared the winner in louisiana getting 51% with 69% of the votes in her favor. going to michael shaw, our
11:03 pm
political correspondent. quite exciting, michael, i would have to say, super saturday. not quite as exciting as super tuesday. many of the republican establishment have been outspoken about the state of the campaign. what does this big night mean for ted cruz? >> well, it means a lot for ted cruz. he did what he has to do. he is controlling the narrative on the saturday night. he didn't just win in some of these states. he lost to donald trump by a little bit in louisiana. he kind of banquised marco rubio, saying he is the only person who beat donald trump and i'm doing it regularly and i'm the only person who should be against donald trump. he said that to supporters in idaho tonight >> our campaign is the only campaign that has beaten donald trump over and over and over again and that can and will beat
11:04 pm
donald trump over and over and over again. our campaign has now beaten him not once, not twice, not three times, but if kansas and maine both hold, seven times we will have beaten donald trump all over this country. >> ted cruz has maintained that narrative. one of the things that donald trump did say in his remarks just now, we will hear from him in a little bit, he said that ted cruz should have done welll in maine because it is so close to canada. so having a little bit of fun the old thing about ted cruz being canadian and not american. >> yes talking about marco rubio now. he had been the great hope for the establishment, but his footpath to a nomination already limited seems to be even more so as he looks towards his home state >> it was a disastrous night for him. he didn't come close at all anywhere. he had a close third in maine
11:05 pm
and that was about it. when you sit back and you're marco rubio, you have to wonder where you're going to pick these votes up. the narrative has been florida, but if he is the establishment candidate, the darling of all of those people, you will remember in south carolina in particular ee haley, the governor and people getting behind him. he just has no delivered. he is banking, though, on his home state in two weeks. will that be enough? i don't know, but the marco rubio think that that has to be the plan. >> we're soon going to be in the winner take all prospects, like florida and other places. that's where we feel confident as we move forward. >> his confidence, though, this has to be a facade because he cannot be confident. he said the same thing the other night when i was listening to him speak on super tuesday in miami. we were in the horse barn in the county there and there was a lot of energy in the room but he didn't do well on super tuesday.
11:06 pm
forgetting super sat, he said the same thing. now that ted cruz is doing well, expect him to go into florida not with the the thought of that he can win, but that marco rubio won't win the state donald trump has some support there, he has properties there, he lives there part of the time >> yes he did not sweep today. where does super saturday leave donald trump. >> donald trump is in a funny place. the narrative is that tonight he didn't do as well as he has done in other states. you can look at donald trump too if you really dig into these things and you can see a very pronounced difference, that he does very, very well in the south and he doesn't well elsewhere. florida is the not a typical southern state, but south florida he may do well and also in the northern points where marco rubio does well, but he
11:07 pm
has to prove in a strange way that he is able to win in places like michigan. the latest poll today had him down 2 percentage points to john kasich, but donald trump for what it's worth wants to see marco rubio say goodbye to this race. that's what he said to his supporters in west palm beach tonight. >> i think marco rubio had a bad night. personally i call for him to drop out of the race. i think it is time that he drop out of the race. i really think so >> standing in florida telling marco rubio to get out of the race is not where marco rubio wanted to be, but there are other people saying the same thing, people talking about john kasich siphoning votes from marco rubio. it seems really like marco rubio might be taking votes from john kasich in places too and that is not at all where the raub yoe campaign wanted to be now to the democrat. wins to hillary clinton and
11:08 pm
bernie sanders. >> yes. i think the sanders will say we won two out of three states and the clinton saying we won more delegates. we won the primary in louisiana, the most important prize tonight. we won it decisively. this is not going to change what happens for the democrats, but bernie sanders won that by 10 points in kansas. then turning around and having to struggle with clinton in delegates is a bad place to be. let's look at obama who won by something like 40 points. that's a statement you have to make. bernie sanders needs some statement victories, and he is running out of time. he can still make the argument it is still a race and they're still in it talking about the republican establishment, we've seen they're targeting donald trump,
11:09 pm
the donald trump take down. here is one establishment republican who, obviously, is not happy with trump, but not happy with the no.2 guy ted cruz either. >> a good republican would defend ted cruz after tonight. that ain't happening. [ laughter ] >> if you killed ted cruz on the floor of the senate and the trial was in the senate, nobody could convict you that was a week ago when senator graham made that astounding comment even in jest about a former republican, and now ted cruz is on the uptick. >> this is almost a surge for
11:10 pm
ted cruz. let's look at lindsay graham. he was a candidate in this race. he went on to endorse jeb bush, now picking on ted cruz. this has not been his election start to finish. i don't see what his remarks other than being pretty clever had anything to do with the race. what it does show, and i know that's why you played it, is that there is a part of the republican party that wants nothing to do with ted cruz. there are republicans thinking that ted cruz getting the nomination is worse for the brand than donald trump. they can distance himself from donald trump, they can say it was a crazy circumstance. ted cruz is the junior senator from texas. he is part of the republican party. they will have a difficult time staying away from that should he get the nomination. that is the kind of thing that lindsay graham will be wary of at this point thank you for that.
11:11 pm
one of the important states is ohio. it is one of the so-called swing states where voters do not typically toe the line between republican and democrat. what is at state there on march 15? >> reporter: every serious candidate has already been here and will come again. >> i always loved ohio >> reporter: and again. >> it is truly a microcosm of the country. every part is represented here. >> reporter: the mix of rural and urban, wealthy and poor, black and white make it the state that more than any other is known for picking presidents. >> now is one of a dozen battleground states for the presidency. out of 50 states there are only about 12 where there's a real contest going on. that has been ohio for years and years. demographically it mirrors the country >> reporter: in the general election that mirror has long
11:12 pm
cast a strikingly accurate reflection of what happens in the nation when all the votes are cast. ohio has become the gateway to the white house. since 1964, every president, johnson, nixon, carter, regan and the bushes and obama have all had to win here first. the state votes within 1.3 percentage points of the national vote in the presidency. >> reporter: for the first time these people born after 1980 will match baby boomers as a share of the electorate. they bring their own issues >> we've grown-up in a time where there has been economic hardship >> reporter: that goes for young democrats >> i can afford a republican president to be in office. i am white, male, straight and middle-class, but for a lot of people that are part of marginalised communities, they cannot afford for years of a republican >> the reason that i believe
11:13 pm
that it should be bernie sanders is of the 40 years of consistent progressive policies >> people like me are very, very invested in making sure that we protect gay rights, protect the ability to marie someone you love-- marry someone you love >> >> reporter: and republicans >> i'm for donald trump because i want to make america great again. build that wall, done amend >> donald trump is the man and he will make america great again >> he tells it how it is. >> reporter: all campaigners will campaign aggressively pause they know if their dream is to become a reality, they must win here politics is also the topic of tonight's deeper look. coming up, a look at how political poll $affect the public's opinion on the presidential race. we will show you the process and how it has changed since it began. humanitarian crisis along the
11:14 pm
greek-macedonian border is expected to get worsement over 10 thousand refugees have camped out now on the greek side of the border. thousands more are expected to arrive at the sprawling tents s. greece does not have the resources to provide for all the migrants, but that has not stopped many greeks from doing what they can to help. a report from athens. >> reporter: greeks come to the aid of refugees stranded in their country. images of families out in the open on chilly nights have made them forget their problems. at squires like this where the refugees live, they turn up in droves with bags of fruit, food and medicine. >> translation: we could be in their position. if we were, we would need help.
11:15 pm
>> translation: we come to help all the time. they're human beings. >> reporter: greece has been struggling before the influx of refugees dealing with an economic crisis. there's little the state here can do to help the refugees. now civilians an charities have been forced to step in. soup kitchens that served unemployed and homeless greeks now cater for the refugees too. it is this woman's first day here. >> if they see and they get to know that this is something that we must do, help people who are hungry, i think that more people will come. gentleman despite the generosity of the people of greece, few of the refugees want to stay in
11:16 pm
this country. this family arrived in athens one and a half months ago. >> translation: we have registered here, but it's not our intention to live here. we would like to go to germany. my brother has been there for two and a half months and we would like to join him. >> reporter: 5,000 people are stranded in greece. their journey to european countries has been blocked. that's because urine nations have failed to agree on how to deal with one of the worst humanitarian crises in decades. many people are worried about what will happen if people could keep coming and the border remains closed polling is now a critical part of a candidate's campaign. >> many polls have come out that i easily beat hillary clinton politicians live and die by
11:17 pm
will polls but where do the numbers compaoe from and who ar the policy sisters talking to-- polsters speaking to. >> reporter: five years after the fukushima disaster, people are still searching for their loved ones.
11:18 pm
11:19 pm
in any election year voters are told how various candidates are doing in the polls. tonight we take a deeper look at
11:20 pm
how polls are measuring the public's opinions. there are more than 200 million american adults and only a few are asked to take part in a poll. americans have a one in 1000 chance of being-- 100 chance of being called. traditionally they have been called by landline, but most live in homes without land lines. that's forcing the poling industry to adapt. several lickss have seen results that defy pollsters' expectations. the last november suggested he was to win but he lost. a few months earlier in great britain every poll was wrong about the election in may. david shuster has more on the evolving science of polling. >> reporter: polling produced
11:21 pm
one of the most iconic photos in history. back in 194 # the industry was still in its infancy. in the decades that followed, it became more scientific and integral to political campaigns. kennedy was the first candidate to hire his own policy sister. -- pollster. the organizations gallop and others became household names. today the industry is facing a growing series of challenges. traditional sampling relied on interviewers going door to door and calling people at home but in person interviews are expensive and sometimes impossible if an area has a lot of gated communities or apartments that are hard to reach. with more and more people abandoning landline phones, contacting people have become harder. many people simple won't answer
11:22 pm
calls from an unfamiliar number. people who do pick up are not likely to participate. according to u.s. news and world report response rates were better than 50% back in the 1980s but are usually in single dints today. on line polls and automated polls are answers that try to get around these problems, but even so getting a representative sample is increasingly difficult and the result has been a series of high profile stumbles for the industry, predicting a narrow win for the democrat in the race for kentucky the win won by nine points. internal g.o.p. poll which led mitt romney win. last year polls predicted a toss up elections in both britain and israel right before the
11:23 pm
incumbent prime ministers in both countries won comfortably. when a political season dominated by talk of polls, it is worth remembering that even the best are still just predictions. david shuster, al jazeera for our deeper look we're joined by professor of campaign management and new york university and david merman partner at lake research partners in san francisco. the first question, how does this presidential election cycle differ from, say, recent modern cycles in terms of making the job easier or more complicated for pollsters? >> during the primary and caucus season we have seen less live poling, in fact less. live interviews were much more prevalent than previously why is that? >> it is very expensive to do. we have seen other polling, such as internet, which is popular and can be good and it is
11:24 pm
untested until this year in primaries around caucuses. some of these survey polls have done well in general elections, of course in minimal numbers, but the primary and caucus season they have not been tested until this election the question of doing live polling, there is more money in politics than ever before. isn't there money to do enough poling? >> we're not talking about the campaigns. they do great polling and they're doing that polling, but they don't release that data. the media, of course, they have to be wary of cost and it is very expensive. there are new avenues to do to do research and they can save cost. we're still to see how accurate they really are let's talk about one of the examples where polls have been wrong so far this year. the rise of donald trump, how did so many pundits - no, how
11:25 pm
did the pollsters keep ahead? >> keep in mind that the polling has shown consistently donald trump leading from fairly early on in this primary process. the polling has mostly shown him leading. it hasn't been all that bad. it is more the pundits who thought that would collapse and being proved wrong. many of the challenges you mentioned are real and they're particularly difficult when you're talking about the lower turn out primaries around caucuses and you will see, for instance, some of the surprise states, some of the ones that are coming in today, the caucus states are the ones where the pollsters are less likely to have a read on who is going to turn out and, therefore, you see the results being somewhat different one did not predict the win
11:26 pm
by ted cruz in iowa. >> yes. they had donald trump ahead. the fact that they have low turn out and, therefore sometimes the pollsters can't get an accurate read on who is turning out, the other thing about a caucus is that it requires a commitment of time for those who participate and it awards organization. cruz has had throughout this process a superior organization on the ground. he has more people organized to turn out and vote in these caucuses. trump, while being doing very well through the media at gaining popularity, and you see him do well in the primaries in caucus states and it appears to be the case again today, he doesn't have as much of an organization on the ground. he is under performing where the polling suggests he was before we move on with more discussion about this crop of candidates. let's talk about the history of poling, back to the 1930s when it began. we remember that famous moment
11:27 pm
in 48, i guess it was, when everyone predicted that true man was going to lose. tell us about that in terms of how polling has evolved. >> it has evolved an enormous amount. both of those debarcles, 1948 and 1948, it had to do with a lot but primarily sampling. how do you draw a representative sampling. one of the toughest things to do is to predict who is going to come out and vote because when you think about it, what are pollsters doing? they're asking people during dinner or crazy hour in their day if they're going to behave a certain way in a week, a month or a year. not only do people not know, but they're unwilling to share information, or they think they support somebody one day and another person another day. it is a difficult thing to do. that's why we've seen so many problems, not just in the united
11:28 pm
states. in 014, the mid-terms the polls were wrong in many cases, and across the country and across the world we've seen these problems. it's a very dething to do. the history of poling has been a history of trying to figure out how to do this better. i had the chance to work with broker's son a year ago. he said it is not a science, it's an art. it is an art and one of the problems is how we communicate that to people because they here 26 vrs/76% and they grasp onto that number. it's not that, it is an art that we're talking about that and we have to treat it like that roper is? >> he was one of the founding fathers of public polling along with gallop and so some of the others eminent pollsters who came out in the 1920s and 30s and gave birth to what has been
11:29 pm
a huge movement in american politics this election season we have heard donald trump say that he is leading in all the polls gebs hillary clinton. we've also hillary clinton say that she is leading in the polls against donald trump. what are the voters to believe? >> i would take almost anything that mr trump says with a grain of salt, but it is true that there seems to have been polls showing both clinton ahead of trump in many of the key states, not as many knowing that donald trump can tie or at least get close to hillary clinton. if you invisit the resources that you need to get a good sample so that you're reaching people on their cell phones, you're not simply relying on who is the first person to answer the phone or the first person to click your survey online. if you are actually taking an accurate sample that includes a turn out model who is likely to turn out, you can still get
11:30 pm
quite good accurate results. those that are more accurate that we've seen so far indicate that as of now hillary clinton would be leading donald trump in all of the major states she would need to win in november, but we're a long way away. things can change. it doesn't mean - there may be accurate now and it still doesn't mean that that's what the outcome will be you talked about some of the tombs that are used in doing polls. knocking on doors to landline telephones, to cell phones and now looking at the web. then there are social media, twilter, google-- twitter, google >> we have done some research, but to do an ago ago-- accurate, you have to do a specific telephoning model, you're calling cell phones to make sure year reaching younger vetters,
11:31 pm
who only have cell phones, and then you are stratifying so it is accurate to the likely turn out, you can still get a good read. we are doing online polling, it is good, but for the major turn out, you can't get an accurate turn out on line. we would look at the phone polls as being more accurate in this primary season today don't you also have a problem with people being willing to respond even if you reach someone on a landline some in first of all-- >> absolutely you have fewer people answering the landline and when they do they don't want to know anything about a poll u we are calling at least 40 to 50%. response rates are going down and you have to control your sample very carefully and make sure that if you're not able to reach someone who is in your sample, that you substitute somebody who has a similar
11:32 pm
voter, so there is still an accurate projected sample thaz reflects the electorate. if you're sloppy and you try to do it quickly, you can get ba bad results because certainly those response rates are down and you need to pay close attention to who is coming into your example. the betterer pollsters are doing that but it takes work and money and it's not the cheapest way to do it when voters are looking at poelsz, what would-- polls, preelection polls, what you say to them? >> look at this at an average, an average of poles, i think that's helpful. you want to look at the quality of pole and pollsters. some of them are very good and have sounds. you want to know that. the other thing is do you always want to look at the idea that these are questions being asked of people, look at what the question is that was asked because we know depending on how you is a question, you can elicit a certain response.
11:33 pm
you're asking people about future asking when you're asking about preelection polls. very difficult to do. so you have to put that in context. i think those are the four things to suggest people do and can change their minds. >> yes thank you both for joining us on al jazeera america. cubans stuck in central america will soon get to continue their journey to the u.s. many are expected to head to miami. a knock at the door forever changed the minds of one l.a. couple. why they became wards of the state even though they had family who could help them. bot ice lli's paintings around the world. 40 of them now are on display in london.
11:34 pm
11:35 pm
11:36 pm
looking at the primary results from super sat. we begin with the-- super sat. we begin in kansas where ted cruz has been declared the winner, 48% of the vote, following donald trump marco rubio an john kasich. in maine ted cruz also the winner there with 45% of the vote. 23 delegates in play in maine. louisiana donald trump wins with 41%, ted cruz second and marco rubio third, john kasich fourth. in kentucky donald trump winning again with 35%, a closer margin, cruz no.2, rubio third, almost
11:37 pm
tied with john kasich in fourth place. now to the democrats. three big contests, kansas, 61% over hillary clinton. in nebraska bernie sanders 55% won, but hillary clinton won louisiana with almost as many delegates as bernie sanders earned in those other two states with 70% of the vote in louisiana. well, by land and by sea many face setbacks in the course of their journey. our correspondent reports from miami on what happens once they reach america. >> reporter: at the church world service newly arrived cuban families are given all the help they need.
11:38 pm
for this family had has been a long and perilous journey. they made their way through south and central america and faced a series of setbacks. he tells us he was robbed several times by corrupt officials. the story not uncommon amongst those seeking a better life. it is a fate of the thousands of other cubans who have started making their way out of central america that is concerns city officials in miami. the mayor says the resources are already stretched and may not cope with another influx. >> for me it is a pain to see people living on a parking lot or in front of a store and we cannot just help them. >> reporter: over the past few months the number of cubans arriving by sea has increased dramatically. it is that combination of so-called rafters and others arriving by land that has many concerned.
11:39 pm
organizations who deal with newly arrived cubans here say those they have dealt with more numbers. they are settling in other states. representative of the church world service says most arrivals settle quickly. >> there has been an over reaction because of the cubans this time around because of the idea they may be homeless. the majority of them do have families and are not going to be homeless. they will be with their families here. >> reporter: this family are part of biggest influx of migrants in more than two decades. they will soon leave south florida to make new lives in michigan turkey's prime minister is in iran this went for his first visit there in two years. the two countries have strongly disagreed over the syrian war.
11:40 pm
turkish officials, including prime minister have supported anti-government forces in syria and called for the president to resign. iran has back episode the government. he said that both sides are hope to strengthen their trade elections the department of education are expand iing programs to hel them. some students have reported being called terrorists in recent months. two years ago life changed for an elderly couple. they were placed into guardianship and became wards of the state. every aspect of their lives is now in the hands of a private for-profit guardian appointed by
11:41 pm
a judge. america's tonight correspondent brings us the story that begins with a knock at the door. >> reporter: just like that. my whole life was shattered. >> reporter: with that knock these two were about to embark on a 22 mf month ordeal-- 22 mf more ordeal one which would deprive them of freedom. it was april parks, appointed by a judge in l.a. to conserve as their private guardian. unknown to them and their family, a doctor and a physician assistant providing in home care declared they were unable to care for themselves. then a judge who never met them, never ordered another assessment, signed off on the petition to serve as their guardian. >> i felt this would blow over. i didn't have any idea what was going on.
11:42 pm
none whatsoever. >> reporter: what was going on, what has been going on for years across the county, home to l.a. and surrounding communities, elderly people declared incompetent, thrown into guardianship, their lives and their finances now controlled by a court-appointed guardian. >> nobody has phoned me. no notification by mail. nothing. >> reporter: this is their only surviving child. she also lives in l.a. they were just two of april park's wards. court records given to america tonight listed 155 wards under april parks. she was billing all of them every month. our calls andy mail to april parks and her attorney went unanswered. we also left messages tore john raze, who declared this couple
11:43 pm
unable to care for themselves. 22 months after they took control of them, their bank accounts drained, car and belongings sold. parks finally withdrew her objection to the daughter taking over the care >> she didn't object because they went through their money. they leave them without everything >> i thought i had enough moneys to last me forever. >> reporter: and now? >> now, i have nothing. nothing when we come back, it was the biggest earthquake ever recorded in northern japan and five years later families are still looking for missing loved ones. a team off and running for one thousand miles >> reporter: we are looking at rain hitting parts of california as well as very deep snow across
11:44 pm

11:48 pm
area. you can see over the last three hours the rain has gotten much heavier. as well as we are going to be seeing some very high snow totals over the next day. the winter storm warnings are in effect for the nevadas. we will see anywhere between three and four feet of snow in some of those locations. it is not just that. we're also seeing some pretty heavy flooding going on as well. for sunday, that's where that snow is expected, but rain automatic the way down towards the border of next co as well. the other big story is what is happening with the temperatures from the central to the eastern part of the united states over the next several days. really we're looking at average temperatures agoing into tomorrow. the ridge of high pressure is going to start to slowly make it's way over temperatures for monday. washington 63 degrees. tuesday they go even higher than
