tv Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans CNN March 7, 2016 2:00am-3:01am PST
lower is very big deal and shows they have pessimism. "early start" continues right now. >> if you are talking about the wall street bailout, where some of your friends destroyed this economy. >> you know -- >> excuse me. i'm talking. >> anger in the presidential race. this time it's the democrats. bernie sanders on the attack. hillary clinton firing back. explosive cnn debate. we have the highlights and analysis. on the republican side, four states voting tomorrow. ted cruz with the most momentum and most delegates this weekend. the man on the right, donald trump, does he have reason to worry? this as the party and nation pause to remember nancy reagan. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm john berman.
>> i'm christine romans. it is monday, march 7th. good morning. breaking overnight. high drama and high stakes at the cnn democratic debate in flint, michigan. this one was different. one day before the crucial michigan primary, you could sense the frustration at some points. you could sense the candidates believe there are not many more chances to change the trajectory of the race. here are the highlights. >> i am very glad, anderson, that secretary clinton has discovered religion on this issue. but it's a little bit too late. secretary clinton supported virtually every one of the disastrous trade agreements. >> when i talk about senator sanders being a one-issue candidate, i mean very clearly you have to make hard choices when you are in positions of responsibility. the two senators from michigan
stood on the floor and said we have to get this money released. i went with them. i went with barack obama. you did not. if everybody voted the way he did, i believe the auto industry would have collapsed taking 4 million jobs with it. >> let us be clear. one of the major issues secretary clinton said i'm a one-issue person. i guess so. my one issue is i'm trying to rebuild the middle class. >> to know what it feels like to send off your first grader and the next thing you hear is that somebody has come to that school using an automatic weapon, an ar-15, and murdered those children. they are trying to prevent that from happening to any other family. the best way to do that is to go right at the people. we talk about corporate greed. the gun manufacturing sell guns
to make as much money as they can make. >> we are, if elected president, going to invest a lot of money in mental health. when you watch the republican debates, you know why we need to invest in mental health. >> cnn's jeff zeleny has more from flint, michigan. >> reporter: john and christine, the contentious debate in flint, michigan, bernie sanders and hillary clinton going after it on trade, auto bailout, crime issues. it was one of the most contentious debates we have seen. of course, not as comparable to republicans, but for the democratic side, it was raucous. bernie sanders is running out of time to make his case to democrats that they should elect him. one of the things i was struck by, we are here in michigan at the heart of the auto industry. hillary clinton assailed him for voting against the auto bailout in 2009. >> i voted to save the auto industry. he voted against the money that ended up saving the auto industry. i think that is a pretty big
difference. >> well, if you are talking about the wall street bailout, where some of your friends destroyed this economy -- >> you know. >> excuse me, i'm talking. >> if you're going it talk, tell the more story. >> your story is voting for every disastrous trade agreement. did i vote against the wall street bailout when billionaires on wall street destroyed this economy? they went to congress and said please, we'll be good boys, bail us out. you know what i said? let the billionaires themselves bailout wall street. shouldn't be the middle class of the country. >> reporter: in the middle of the exchange, it is hard to know if any gains were made. if you supported sanders before the debate, you did after.
there is one more full day of campaigning before the michigan primary goats to tvotes. if sanders can win here, this will propel this nomination fight farther. if hillary clinton wins, it will keep her assertion going. a big day of campaigning in michigan. hillary clinton is campaigning. first, the michigan primary on tuesday. john and christine. >> jeff, thank you. on the republican side, some big wins for ted cruz over the weekend. senator cruz appears to have a lot of momentum heading into big votes states tomorrow. mississippi and michigan. many candidates campaigning. campaigning for the march 15th states. that's the latest polling out of michigan. you see donald trump with a lead. over the weekend, it was ted
cruz. ted cruz won in kansas. ted cruz won also in maine as well. he won more delegates than trump. trump won in louisiana and kentucky. marco rubio was able to win in puerto rico. john kasich picked up endorsements. >> i want john kasich to be the next nominee of the republicans and the next president of the united states. >> thank you, arnold, love you man. >> joining us to discuss the debate last night and the primaries going forward. tom lobianco. your big take aways from last night? >> clinton had great lines. clearly times there where
sanders did not know how to respond. you know, some are at the point where their messages are distilled to such a point that they got these great one liners coming out. you know, sanders snapped a little bit. he butted in and said excuse me i'm talking. you know, that was not good for him. there are questions of how much does this change in michigan. it's in michigan. ironically, this is also a debate that sanders asked for. one of the three extra debates. so, she looked like the democratic candidate and frontrunner who was around in october at some of the early debates. very strong. back when people were saying maybe we shouldn't have limited the debates. maybe we should have more.
>> she was strong on the bailout. where it happened. she really hammered sanders on that. he seemed surprised by that round of attack. let's talk about the republicans quickly. who has the momentum coming out of the weekend? who has it? trump or cruz? >> ted cruz. clearly. trump, the expectations are sky high. he didn't meet them. ted cruz looks like your anti-trump candidate. if you are a republican and evangelical. someone who doesn't enjoy donald trump. this looks like your guy. he is performing. he is winning these states. those were upsets on saturday. you know, trump's supposed to be running away with this. that was the whole never trump movement which sprouted up finally was all about stopping the inevitable. it looks like ted cruz is
starting to do that. the delegate counts, trump is not running away with this right now. that could change easily. cruz is the guy right now. >> and the never trump movement has soul searching to do. if everyone is honest, the money and the establishment backing for the never trump movement has been a pro marco rubio phenomenon. now it seems ted cruz is the most effective foil. and these never trump people have to look to see if they are willing to back ted cruz. >> absolutely. do you take to a convention and run it out? do you risk it or do you hop on board early? do you make the shift now before you get to the winner take all states. march 15th with the win or take all in florida and ohio will be very decisive. you know, if you lose the chance to stop trump now, you might not
get it back. >> tom, nice to see you. >> we have a lot more political coverage going on here at cnn. tomorrow is another key voting day. michigan, mississippi, idaho, hawaii for the republicans. wednesday, a democratic debate in miami. thursday, a republican debate in miami. this is the final debate for the republicans before super tuesday. we don't know if they will debate after super tuesday at all. stay here on cnn. time for an early start on your money. we want to look at spending on advertising. it did not guarantee a victory for marco rubio on super saturday. the florida senator and allies spent twice as much in tv advertising combined. rubio won zero of the states up for grabs. he did pick up puerto rico. here is how it broke down. in the 15 months leading up to saturday, conservative solutions, a pac backing rubio, spent $124,000 on ads.
it works out $1.46 a vote. donald trump spent no money on advertising and ted cruz spent half as much money as marco rubio. tributes pouring in around the world for nancy reagan this morning who died sunday in california from congestive heart failure. nancy reagan was one of the most influential women of the 20th century. first lady to president ronald reagan. fiercely protective during the terms of the white house. the depth of her devotion was evident in the years after he left office. david gergen, a long time adviser to ronald reagan, reflected on the reagan relationship. >> they came together in the early 1950s and it changed ronald reagan's life.

long range missile test. then the sanctions which led kim jong un saying he wanted his nuclear weapons on stand by. you have this today. the preemptive nuclear war threat. we heard it before. it is still significant and worrying for officials around the world. the question is would they be able to carry out such a threat? the assumption is they are not there yet, but it is worrying they are carrying out this rhetoric. tensions will be rising. >> paula, thank you for that. this morning, isis claiming responsibility for a suicide attack in iraq that killed 35 people and injured more than 100. iraqi police say it happened a a busy security checkpoint in the city of hilla. all right. one of the great quarterbacks to play the game is retiring.

if you are talking about the wall street bailout where some of your friends destroyed this economy. >> you know -- >> excuse me. i'm talking. >> excuse me. i'm talking. anger, frustration and extreme urgency. this time it was the democrats. the cnn debate in flint full of surprises. as for the republicans, nearly 100 delegates doled out this weekend. who is up? who is down? does donald trump have reason to fear frontrunner status. this as the political world pause to remember nancy reagan. welcome back to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm john berman. 30 minutes past the hour. high stakes and high drama. the cnn democratic debate in flint, michigan.
this was really different than the other debates. a couple of days before the crucial michigan primary. the back drop, the flint water crisis loomed. you could sense the frustration bubbling over. you could sense the candidates believe there are not many more chances to change the outcome of the race. here are the highlights. >> i am very glad, anderson, that secretary clinton has discovered religion on this issue, but it is a little bit too late. secretary clinton supported virtually every one of the disastrous trade agreements written by corporate america. >> when i talk about senator sanders being a one-issue candidate, i mean clearly you have to make hard choices when you are in positions of responsibility. the two senators from michigan stood on the floor and said we have to get this money released. i went with them and i went with
barack obama. you did not. if everybody voted the way you did, i believe the auto industry would have collapsed taking 4 million jobs with it. >> let us be clear. one of the major issues i'm a one issue person. i guess so. my one issue was trying to rebuild a disappearing middle class. >> to think about what it must feel like to send off your first grader, backpack on his or her back, and the next thing you hear, somebody has come to that school using an automatic weapon, ar-15, and murdered those children. they are trying to prevent that from happening to any other family. the best way to do that is to go right at the people. you talk about corporate greed. the gun manufacturers sell guns to make as much money as they can make. >> we are, if elected president, going to invest a lot of money
in mental health. when you watch the republican debates, you know why we need to invest. >> cnn's jeff zeleny has more on the debate from flint, michigan. >> reporter: john and christine, the lively debate in flint. sanders and clinton going after it on trade and auto bailouts and crime itches. not as comparable to republicans, but for the democrats, it was raucous. bernie sanders is running out of time to make his case that democrats should elect him. one thing i was struck by. we are here in michigan in the heart of the auto industry. hillary clinton assailed him for voting against the auto bailout in 2009. listen to what she said. >> i voted to save the auto industry. he voted against the money that ended up saving the auto industry. i think that is a pretty big difference. >> well, if you are talking about the wall street bailout,
where some of your friends destroyed this economy. >> you know -- excu >> excuse me. i'm talking. >> if you are going to talk, tell the whole story. >> your story is for voting every disastrous trade agreement and voting for corporate america. did i vote against the wall street bailout when billionaires on wall street destroyed this economy. they went to congress and said we'll be good boys, bail us out. i said let the billionaires themselves bailout wall street. shouldn't be the middle class of the country. >> reporter: in the middle of the contentious exchange, it is hard to know if any gains had been made. if you supported sanders before the debate, you supported him coming out of it. one full day of campaigning before the primary goes to the voters.
this campaign is critical. the rustbelt voter. central part of the electorate. if sanders can win here, this will propel this nomination fight farther. if hillary clinton wins, it will keep her assertion going on strong here. big day of campaigning today in michigan. hillary clinton is campaigning. bernie sanders as well. they scatter to the march 15th states. first, the michigan primary on tuesday. john and christine. >> thank you, jeff. republican candidates on the campaign trail. michigan and mississippi hold their primaries tomorrow. a big day in the crucial michigan contest. trump is far ahead in the latest poll. leading ted cruz nearly 2 to 1. over the weekend, trump won the kentucky caucuses and louisiana primary. so did cruz. two wins in kansas and maine. marco rubio won puerto rico's primary. john kasich won zero primaries. he picked up a couple notable
endorsements. >> i want john kasich to be the next nominee of the republicans and to be the next president of the united states. here he is. >> thank you, arnold. love you, man. >> joining us to talk about all this, we have political reporter tom lobianco. let's stick with the republicans for a second. we heard the terminator there talk about john kasich. let's listen to what was said over the weekend. >> he comes in third. he comes in fourth. every time he comes in third or fourth, he says you have to be able to win. i think it is time he drops out. i would love to take on ted one-on-one. that would be so much fun. ted can't win new york. he can't win pennsylvania. he can't win california. i wanted one-on-one.
>> ted cruz is the one with the momentum from the weekend. >> absolutely. what is funny about trump, he is laying out the strategy. you know, some of the states where you are more establishment types, moderate right of center republicans, you have big contests coming up in the ru rustbelt. places like michigan and pennsylvania. down the road. those are places where rubio and kasich would do well. some of that may accrue to trump. trump wins across the board. we didn't have exit polling on this latest round. from what we have seen, if you can cut into that, that further guarantees it for him. part of the whole not trump movement. never trump push that's coming
in right now. in a weird way, relies on everyone. ted cruz, marco rubio and john kasich to a degree staying in and denying enough delegates so you have this convention battle. it is unclear that ted cruz would ever break-away with enough delegates on his own. >> let's talk about the cnn democratic debate in flint, michigan. a really interesting spectacle and really rich discussion of the issues. it was also a really fascinating political moment. urgency on that stage in the race so far. you could see hillary clinton come in with prepared attacks and surprises going after bernie sanders in the auto bailout. you could see bernie sanders working harder on the stage than before. and getting frustrated. >> he got worked up. he flashed his anger on the trail and on the debate stage
periodically. that line where he said, excuse me, i'm talking and shut her down. that did not look good for him. it is clear she got under his skin with quite a few things. especially the auto bailout. it didn't look like he knew how to handle that. unclear how this changes the day before the primary there. you know, it worked for her. >> that moment where he told her, excuse me i'm talking, that lit up twitter. >> you tell me that all the time. >> that struck a chord on twitter. not that twitter is the sounding board of the world. they really stuck with hillary on that one. >> it dug in under the skin. it is clear he was worked up. you could tell.
he didn't look that good. you know, he got in some good shots himself. that was one of the standout moments of the night. >> tom, thanks so much for being with us this morning. waking up early. a lot to discuss. >> so much happening next week. we have the most comprehensive political coverage. tomorrow is super tuesday number two. michigan is the big prize. voting in three other states. wednesday is the debate in miami. thursday, a debate in miami. a full week of events here on cnn. time for an early start on your money. spending big money on advertising did not guarantee a victory for marco rubio on super saturday. the florida senator and allies spent twice as much in advertising per vote. rubio won zero states. he picked up puerto rico. here is how it broke down. in 15 months, conservative
solutions spent $125,000 on ads. rubio won 85,000 votes. donald trump won two states. spent most money on advertising. ted cruz won two. spent half as much money as marco rubio. >> i have to say, the money dumped into florida right now is what everyone is talking about. outside groups pouring in money going after donald trump. donald trump says he will respond on social media using facebook and twitter. we will see. that would be an unprecedented way. 41 minutes after the hour. the world mourning the loss of nancy reagan. we will discuss the plans to honor her life next. covering is caring. because covering heals faster. to seal out water, dirt and germs, cover with a water block clear bandage from band-aid brand. pure is big, bold and just better.
