tv Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans CNN March 9, 2016 2:00am-2:31am PST
this is like a teenager, the average of the 12 bull markets since world war ii is 54 months. this one is 84 months. >> the question is how moody is it? is it moody like a teenager? breaking news this morning. it is the wednesday after the second super tuesday. big wins for donald trump, stunning upset for bernie sanders. so many people casting their states on that tuesday, looking to a huge tuesday six days from now. the entire race shaken up. we'll break down the winners and losers ahead. good morning. welcome to "early start." >> it's wednesday, march 9th. it's 5:00 a.m. on the east. we've been on tv for 76 straight hours. want to welcome our viewer the in the united states and around
the world. this was a stunning result, an upset victory for bernie sanders in michigan. i don't think the sanders campaign saw it coming, the clinton campaign didn't see it coming and the polls didn't show it likely to happen at all. hillary clinton won decisively in mississippi. look at that margin there. as a result, hillary clinton won the most delegates on this super tuesday. she extended her delegate lead. that is the margin now, that includes superdelegates, hillary clinton more than 200 ahead and it grew yesterday. >> on the republican side, donald trump picked up michigan, mississippi and hawaii. that happened a couple hours ago. ted cruz won in idaho. an awful night for marco rubio. no state wins. he didn't pick up any delegates. he mate get one or two in hawaii. that's still to be determined. but blanked everywhere else.
the net result is donald trump extended his already wide delicate lead. ted cruz picked up a lead over marco rubio. this leads up to the huge winner take all primaries. both trump and sanders already looking ahead. >> so, we are going to do something, i think we'll clean the slate. i think we're going to do really well in florida. it's my second home. i love florida. a special place. i think we'll do really well. i think we'll do really well in ohio, now that i have paul o'neill's endorsement, i know i will win ohio. i love ohio. i have so many friends in ohio. it's an amazing place. >> what tonight means is that the bernie sanders campaign, the peoples revolution that we are talking about, the political revolution that we are talking about is strong in every part of the country.
we believe that our strongest areas are yet to happen. . you heard trump talking about paul o'neill, for a hot second i thought it was the former treasury secretary. >> no it was former yankee, paul o'neill, who apparently was in the crowd there. so he has paul o'neill on his side. jeremy diamond is live from florida, it's all going to happen starting right now. good morning, jeremy. >> reporter: that's right. last night in an election filled with these constant firsts and turns, bernie sanders capturing lightning in a bottle in michigan where he won an upset victory over hillary clinton, a real shocker to the political world. even a shocker probably to the clinton and sanders campaigns who both expected hillary clinton to capture the win last night. of course she did not. that's a worrying sign for
clinton going into the rust belt states. you have several other states where you have the same issues of trade and economic anxiety that may play to sanders advantage going forward. donald trump with the three out of four wins last night. that is going to extend his momentum. there had been some questions literally about whether or not donald trump could continue to propel forward despite the onslaught of attacks he's faced. he faced millions of dollars in attack ads, featuring t the #nevertrump movement. you saw key party elite establishment figures coming out against donald trump but still he pressed forward. ted cruz last night making his argument that he's the only republican in the field who can truly compete with donald trump who can potentially beat him. ted cruz with the only win last night other than donald trump's three. for marco rubio, he didn't win any delegates last night at all.
that's going to raise serious questions about his viability, just as we head into this home stretch in florida, where he faces his most crucial test yet of the campaign. >> excellent. thanks for that. we want to look at the winners and losers and what it means to the golden delegate numbers. we turn to jeremy diamond staying with us. joining us also is cnn political analyst, josh rogin, cnn senior reporter, dylan byers. >> dylan and josh are on overtime. eric, let's start with you. the headlines for you this morning on cnn politics, is it #feeltheberme? >> that's right.
bernie sanders turned the midwest into a battleground by winning michigan. keep in mind next week there are five big contests coming up, florida and carolina are two of them, but ohio, illinois and missouri are the other three. hillary clinton was hoping that could be the day she could put this race behind her. now all of a sudden it looks like bernie sanders can compete in all three of those states. this was a bit of game changer. it was a psychological boost, bernie sanders didn't come out in front it terms of delegates, but he showed something he needed to show at this point in the race. now he can survive through next tuesday and move on as the race gets more friendly to him as all the southern states have voted. for trump, as you say, his opponents, the establishment republicans, mitt romney, et cetera, threw everything at him
that they had. it just didn't work. the question now is what anti-trump strategy can win. kasich and rubio are ready for their home stands, but trump is doing better and better. it still looks like ted cruz with wins here and there is the only one who can knock him off. >> the huge win for bernie sanders, i'm sure all of us are having our e-mails blown up from clinton world saying hillary clinton still won more delegates, true, but they thought they would win michigan. bernie sanders even said he thought hillary clinton would win. so what went wrong? >> look, as far as hillary clinton coming out with more delegates. we've been covering this race long enough to know it's not just about delegates.
it's about the story you tell for better or worse. the story that clinton and her campaign were hoping to tell is that bernie sanders is limited. he wasn't able to pick up support from african-americans, he wasn't able to win nevada, win over latinos. he was really a regional candidate. that narrative doesn't work if he starts picking up the midwest and the rust belt. what went wrong? they focused -- hillary clinton focused heavily on the african-american vote. she focused on detroit. she didn't pay as much attention to the rest of the state. she didn't make a hard-fought concerted effort that bernie sanders did in the rest of the state. she was ready to pivot towards the general election and put this thing away, as eric just said, we have not quite reached that time yet. heading into states like ohio
and illinois this could become more complicated than the clinton campaign was hoping it would be. >> the other big headline is this never trump train not getting out of the station. listen to trump last night saying he's the only winner there is. every single person that's attacked me has gone down. i don't want to mention names. let's not mention names. they're out. they're gone. but you look at virtually every single person, we started out with 17, we're down to four, of the four they're pretty much all gone. pretty much. they didn't do so well tonight folks. i'm not going to say anybody didn't do well, they didn't do well, because only one person did well tonight, donald trump. i will tell you. i i'm not going name names here, josh, but is the stop trump, is it over? he moves forward here. >> the stop trump people tell me
today and yesterday is that they're just getting ramped up now. why they waited so long, nobody can figure it out. they also say a couple other things. john kasich said wait for the midwest. we waited for the midwest, we didn't see much. he underperformed. ted cruz, if you look at the march 15th states, illinois, florida, ohio which one of those does ted cruz win? it's not clear he has any states coming up that he can finish first in. they say the only chance is to stop trump in florida. the only man to do that is marco rubio. that argument gets weaker and weaker as more and more results come in. nevertheless, that is their play. we'll see a bunch of new ads coming out starting today. >> you can see the tension th that a large part of this stop trump campaign is not that they necessarily want ted cruz, but
that they want rubio stopping trump. there's a lot going on today at cnn. we have a debate tonight. the univision democratic presidential debate. this is from miami. think about how important this is, all of a sudden after bernie sanders' stunning upset in michigan. what will hillary clinton say to reverse, to take the sting out of that defeat on that stage tonight? this debate followed by a special edition of "ac 360" at 11:00. tomorrow, cnn has the republican debate at the university of miami starting at 8:30 eastern time. again, this is it. if you want to stop donald trump, that debate tomorrow night is it. >> i have two more. trump on at 6:30 a.m. eastern on "new day" and new polls coming out at 6:30. marco rubio holding out for a win in his homestate of florida. he can really do it? we'll dig into that part of the story next. the future belongs to the fast.

>> i want you to know you believed in me once. i am asking you to believe again. we can win this election, and we will. i need your help next tuesday because we're not just going to win the florida primary, we are going to win florida in november. >> establish the hopeful marco rubio suffered a poor showing last night. even so he plans to hold on until his homestate primary in florida next tuesday. let's bring back our political panel to discuss. dylan byers, what happens to marco rubio, what does he have to do next? >> he has to win florida. even if he wins florida the question as eric said earlier this morning is how much does that change the fundamentals of the race? we've been saying in any other election year, someone who
achieved what donald trump achieved would be the presumptive nominee. if anyone else achieved what ted cruz achieved, he would be considered the only alternative. the problem is the republican establishment doesn't want to get behind either one of those candidates so we're talking about rubio in florida and kasich in ohio. i'm not sure wins in your homestates mean you're the alternative candidate. >> eric bradner, there has been some talk that marco rubio should drop out before florida to avoid potential embarrassment. no chance of that happening, is there? >> no, i don't see that happening. there is talk of him running for governor in 2018, but no chance he will drop out before florida. >> josh? >> marco rubio has to stay in, kasich has to stay in. but the real problem is what are they running for?
they can't win. they're just contributing to trump winning elections at this point. they're fighting against themselves. it's a sad state of affairs for the establishment. >> we're covering the breaking news in this race for president all morning long. first north korea with a new nuclear threat. that's next. our new extended-range lte now reaches twice as far... ...and is 4 times better in buildings. see for yourself at t-mobile.com slash coverage. yothat's lactaid®.k! right. 100% real milk, just without the lactose. so, no discomfort? exactly. try some... mmm, it is real milk. lactaid®. 100% real milk. no discomfort. in new york state, we believe tomorrow starts today. all across the state, the economy is growing, with creative new business incentives, and the lowest taxes in decades, attracting the talent and companies of tomorrow.
