new york. and we were walking around. what is this? friendliness. oh, it's kindness. oh wow! now it's on to new hampshire. who are you rooting for there? let us know facebook or twitter. thank you so much for watching. i'm megyn kelly. this is "the kelly file." welcome to "hannity." after a big night in iowa, the presidential candidates turning attention to new hampshire. both senator ted cruz and donald trump, they will be here with reaction tonight. but first, senator ted cruz had a huge victory in way and as he told his supporters after his win last night he plans to keep this momentum going. take a look agod bless the great state of iowa! tonight is a victory for courageous conservatives across iowa and all across this great nation. we are going to do this together. as a movement from the people.
and i tell you tonight iowa has made clear to america and the world, morning is coming. morning is coming. >> joining us now, the winner of the iowa republican caucuses, 2016 gop presidential candidate texas senator ted cruz. senator, big congratulations to you. three takeaways from my side. number one, iowa polls are horrible. don't pay attention. a lot to the polls. two, you did the full grassley. all 99 counties. hard work pays off. retail politics works. >> yep. >> and on the republican side, i don't think there's any denying that big loser last night is the establishment of the republican party. >> uh-huh. >> thoughts? >> oh look. i think there's no doubt about it. what we saw yesterday is the incredible power of the grassroots, this people are hungry for change, someone to
stand up to washington. hungry for someone who will take on the washington cartel. take on not just the democrats, but leaders in our own party. we recommengnize we have a $19 trillion debt. it was both parties that bore responsibility. people are fed up. they're fed up with, you know, we want a tidal wave election in 2010 and 2014 and republican leadership is not following through on the promises and they want a leader who will honor his word, who will keep his commitments, who will stand with the xhern people and stop obamacare and stop amnesty and defend religious liberty and the second amendment. and last night, you know, two nights ago, i watched your show, sean. every pundit and analyst you had, one after another, and every show, predicted no way for cruz to win. no way for cruz to win. >> by the way, i didn't make that prediction because -- >> you did not. you did not. >> 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012 and
2016 the polls have been wrong so i had that in the back of my mind the whole time and i kept telling everybody, i don't know when's going to happen. >> yeah. well, what last night shows is the power of the grassroots. you know, we had in iowa over 12,000 volunteers. but we have got over 200,000 volunteers nationwide. i'm here in new hampshire now. south carolina later tonight. and our volunteer army is incredible. and, you know, i'll tell you one of the really important differences to keep in mind from prior election cycles. last two election cycles, the winners of the iowa caucus good men, principled men but came out of iowa broke, without a national team to put them in a position to be able to capitalize and effectively compete to win the nomination. you know, two days ago the financial reports were filed of all the campaigns and as of december 31st our campaign had money in the bank almost as much as jeb bush, plus marco rubio,
plus john kasich, plus chris christie combined. i mean, that's unprecedented, sean. the conservative supposed to be broke and the reason is because we have had over $800,000 contributions. that is when's fueling this campaign. $800,000 contributions and 200,000 volunteers. and that's what last night produced the victory. >> you have shown, you have probably the burn rate meaning cash you took in that you didn't spend and certainly going to serve you well as you move into new hampshire and south carolina. i would assume now the polls are going to shift a little bit or somewhat in new hampshire. my guess, my assumption based on the past experience. it is -- you have been in a battle against the establishment in d.c. they seem to dislike you the most. >> yes. >> if you watched any of the xhn tear last night, the consensus is to coalesce behind marco rubio the most.
don't like you the most and donald trump. what's your take if in fact you believe that's true? >> well, listen. i mean, i was laughing watching some of the media coverage, some of the interviews afterwards where everyone was saying what do you think about the amazing third place finish of marco. i said is that a tell there? when the first thing you want to talk about is amazing third place finish. we're joking in media world bronze is the new gold. you know in they're going to push the themes they want to push. they're going to push the candidates they want to push and the washington cartel has its favorite candidates. but the grassroots are fed up with that. you know? as i observed in iowa and new hampshire, you want the moe who will stand up to washington, change that city? then ask yourself who's washington attacking? and they reveal themselves very plainly as they have throughout this campaign. >> i think a case could be made that fully 60% of iowa
republican voters voted anti-establishment. with you coming out on top. >> yeah. >> so it's interesting to see politically whether or not they turn on you and they want to attack you. certain will i they didn't want to give you credit for the win last night which you deserve. so, i guess, to me, it's almost bordering on pathological and out of touch with the real anger, frustration, maybe anger's the wrong word. righteous indignation of promises made in elections that are not kept like repealing and replacing obamacare, stopping executive amnesty and seems to be your big appeal you stood up in washington when others wouldn't. >> well, look. you have a lot of folks in washington earning paychecks, lobbyists and it's about entrenched power and the idea of the promises of people that elected you they regard it as
quaint. bob dole, i don't know him personally but obviously he's been around and in poll tiblgs longer than i've been around. >> establishment guy. right. total establishment. >> you know, bob dole last week was overheard talking to friends saying he was very dismayed that former new york mayor michael bloomberg might run for president. the reason he said he was dismayed saying if bloomberg runs that could split the moderate liberal vote with him and hillary clinton and goodness gracious that could elect ted cruz which could be cataclysmic. >> wow. >> i want you to think -- that sums it up. >> it is outrageous. didn't win an election, senator. i know we have had moderate candidate in him and john mccain and they don't win elections. and so -- >> they keep losing -- >> go ahead. >> what he's saying and it's the view of a lot of washington cartel, they would rather hillary clinton, they would rather bankrupt the kids and
grand kids, rather lose the u.s. supreme court for a generation. think'd rather see our religious liberty stripped away, second amendment taken away. they would rather see islamic terrorism continue to rise and israel continue to be under assault than have a true reagan conservative in the white house who believes what he's saying. that shows just how messed up washington is but also show why the frustration is volcanic and so encouraging is coming together behind our campaign. we are seeing unity among the grassroots, the activists. old reagan coalition reassembling. they're all coming together and that's what it takes to win the nomination but also what it takes to win the general, to beat hillary or bernie or whoever and turn the country around. >> what are your thoughts about the democratic primary last night? a huge loss for hillary last
night losing to a 74-year-old senator from vermont who identifies as a socialist. they're in real trouble. what are your thoughts? >> look. the democratic party is tired and old and out of ideas. i mean, watching their primary is like watching the sitcom "that '70s show." they're recycling failed ideas on economic policies the obama-clinton economy is a disaster. lowest percentage of americans working since 1977. democrats have no answer to that and then foreign policy, they have their heads in the sand like an ostrich. they won't say the words radical islamic terrorism and no view how to keep the country safe and why the american people are turning away them. i believe we're headed to a 1980 reagan landslide. we're headed 2016 is going to be an election like 1980.
that won't happen if we offer democrat lite. if we paint adds reagan said in bold colors not pale pastels every day at virtually every event people say i'm a democrat. i voted for barack obama. i'm a union member. been a democrat my whole life. i'm with you. day after day after day. >> senator, talk about a general election. i agree with you. i think this is now emerging as a choice election. general election. >> yes, yes. >> tell me because every time we get to this point in an election everyone starts talking about electability. and the electoral map and historically in the last few cycles you have got to win florida, ohio, north carolina, virginia. >> right. >> new mexico, iowa, new hampshire. colorado and it's a very tight map. do you believe you can change the electoral map if you're the candidate for the republicans? >> absolutely yes. and the key is we have got to bring back to the polls the millions of conservative who is are staying home.
we have to bring back to the polls the 54 million evangelical christians who didn't come out and vote in 2012. and we have got to bring back to the polls the reagan democrats, blue collar catholics across the midwest, up into new england. they're union members, gun owners, pro-life. ohio steelworkers. michigan autoworkers. truck drivers and electricians and mechanics and that's what washington doesn't get. that is the core of my base and my support. and here's one of the areas washington cartel gets it totally wrong. if we were to nominate a candidate who supports amnesty, whose views on amnesty are the same as hillary clinton's that we should grant citizenship to 12 million people here illegally, the result of that would be the reagan democrats would stay home. amnesty is an 80% issue with them. they're losing their jobs to people here illegally. seeing the wages driven down and washington wants to say, wall street and the lobbyists want
amnesty so that's the right position. that's how we lose. >> all right. let me ask a final question. ben carson's campaign said that your campaign was telling people he was dropping out and secondly you and donald trump had a very i would say heated exchanges in iowa. a lot of back and forth. he seemed gracious last night. congratulated you on your victory. where do you stand on both those issues? >> well, listen. ben carson is someone who i respect and admire. ben and candy have become friends and had dinner together more than once. and he is a man of great character and integrity and principle and very much admire him. last night when cnn posted a news report that ben was not continuing on to new hampshire, not continuing on to south carolina, but instead, going to florida, our political team forwarded it to the members of our team. but unfortunately, they did not then forward the subsequent story that was ben's campaign
clarifying that he was continuing the campaign and was not canceling the campaign. and so i apologized to ben for that. they should have forwarded that subsequent story. that was a mistake on our part. and as i said, my respect and admiration for ben could not be higher. >> okay. >> with concerning donald, listen. i like and respect donald. you know, six weeks ago donald was singing my praises every day saying i was a friend, saying i was terrific. our numbers started to surge and his started to fall and he began to attack me every day in personal and direct terms and, you know, sean, we have talked many, many times. i have not responded in kind and i don't intend to. i will continue to sing donald's praises personally. he's bold, brash. i'm glad he's running and energizing a lot of people. i think policy differences are fair game and happy to have a conversation about donald's and my differences on health care an his support for expanding
obamacare. i'm happy to have a conversation about amnesty or happy to have a conversation about eminent domain but i think the voters deserve more than insults an attacks and so if he or others choose to continue with the insults, that's their perogative. i will respond by singing his praises. >> senator, you're right. a first place victory is significant. and you worked hard for it. congratulations. one week from tonight we'll get results from new hampshire. the process moves very fast. always appreciate you being here. thank you. >> thank you, sean. god bless. coming up, donald trump is up next with his reaction to the results out of iowa. also, we'll get his take on new hampshire and much more. and then later tonight. >> i know we can make college affordable and get student debt off the backs of young people. >> angry hillary clinton goes full socialist after just barely beating bernie in iowa. did she?

polls and joining us himself, donald trump. mr. trump, good to see you. >> hi, sean. >> all right. let me start with this. you said something last night. i thought you gave a very gracious speech last night but you said something that really struck me. and that was, all the political advisers, consultants and i guess people trying to offer you help and advice said don't go to iowa. what was that all about? >> well, they all said don't go to iowa. wouldn't be right for you. wouldn't probably play too well in iowa. and i know people in iowa. i love the people there. incredible people. i know a lot of them, actually. i have had friends that came from iowa. i said, no. i think i'd do well. they said don't do it. political people. pundits and people that know nothing. i said, you know what? i want to do it anyway. i started off in like last place and within a couple of months i was in first place or almost first place at least and we ended up in second place and i'm really glad that i did it.
some people thought the debate, you know, not doing the debate might have been a positive, you know, a positive for perhaps my opponents but actually i raised as you know $6 million for the vets by not doing the debate so i'm really happy about that. to me it was very important. >> you said it tonight at the press conference and not relitigating the fox issue. i heard you say everything is good. >> that's true. >> moving forward. >> that's true. >> in new hampshire, you've got let's say. boston herald 38%. cnn 30%. you got the suffolk poll 27. nbc news 31. much bigger lead than you ever had in iowa. tell us about your strategy moving forward. >> well, i never had much of a lead in iowa and i guess, you know, the problem was and sort of an interesting situation. i had a -- there was a poll came out where i had a small lead and then when i came in second everybody -- of course, i spent very little money there as far as as you know ted cruz spent a lot of money there and just about everybody else and what
happened, you know, if you just take a look at the overall picture, here i'm doing so well. a natural fit. i've known the people for years. been up in new hampshire for years. i love the place. i think i'm going to do great here and probably would have done better in iowa if i didn't want to do that event for the vets but, you know, i'm very happy with second place finish in iowa. >> when you got into this race, i remember interviewing you and you were very clear and i even went back and fed up with career politicians. they talk and talk. make promise after promise. >> right. >> and that -- >> all talk no action, right. >> make it a total mess out of everything. and that was what drove you into this race. are you more resolved now that you've been through this process to this point? >> well, what drove me in was incompetent leadership at the top. we've made so many bad decisions whether it's the iran deal giving them $150 billion. we get nothing for it. absolutely nothing. leads to nuclear proliferation.
you know, it's just nothing that we do well. the borders are a disaster. the military, we don't win anymore. we don't win anymore in your country, sean. we don't win anymore. we used to win. we don't win with trade. we don't win with war. we can't even beat isis. and we're going to win. if i win, i will tell you if i win we all win because we are going to win. >> let me go to last night's results one more time and ask you this question. if you add up your vote and ted cruz's vote and ben carson vote, you are talking about over 60% of iowa republicans say they're fed up and kind of is in sync with polls that show that republicans feel betrayed by their own party. i'm a registered conservative but i feel that way. they're weak and feckless and incapable of fighting obama. how will that change? >> well, people are angry and i see it an i have tremendous crowds. i'm in new hampshire now. i had 5,000 people a few minutes
ago and literally got off the stage. incredible people. but they're really angry. not angry people but angry at when's going on right now. believe me, if i win, they won't be angry for long because we'll straighten things out fast and also with heart. i mean, we are going to do it with heart because we have people that can't take care of themselves. we have to help people and become a strong country again. we are not strong. we are a country and you know better than maybe anybody. we are a country that's scoffed at and laughed at all over the world. they don't do anything for us. we protect the countries. they give us nothing. so we have to change it around, sean. we will. >> you know, i was watching your speech and pretty humorous tonight and you said second place and you would think the third place guy came in first place the way the immediate why's spinning it and then the media got booed by the crowd and that was amusing. and i think there's some truth to that. do you suspect now because you're so hated by the
establishment and ted cruz is hated by the establishment, do you expect them to coalesce now behind marco rubio and that's going to be the establishment push? >> i really don't know. i mean, i think i'll do the best job by far and be able to bring back the jobs from china, japan, mexico. i'll be far better on the border. build the wall. i know how to get it done fast and beautiful and good and not be able to do what i do. i built an incredible company and what i do and we are going to make america great again. it is my theme. the theme is make america great again. we have to do it. we can't let hillary clinton or bernie sanders become president. because you'll never bring the country back. it goes into an abyss and too far. so, you know, i do talk though about that because it was very interesting. i did well in iowa. came in second and spent less than just about anybody else. we have to be given credit for that.
frankly, everyone told me i couldn't do well there because of whatever it is. you have to ask them. i came in second and people said, oh, that was a disappointing evening for donald trump. but marco rubio, good guy, by the way, came in third. and they're saying he had an unbelievable evening. came in second by over a lot of votes. 2,000 votes. that's a lot for basically small base and we brought in 50,000 or 60,000 more voters than have ever voted in a republican caucus in, you know, in iowa. nobody's ever done that before. so i was 2,000, over 2,000 votes more which is a lot and everybody said that it was his evening. he was the winner. they actually called him the winner. he came in third. came in second. you know, the other thing, he's a professional politician. i never did this before. so i come in second. spend the least money and i had a -- you know, i didn't do as well. he comes in third. not that close by the way. you know in they said, oh, he
came behind trump. he came in third and talking about he's the winner of the evening. give me a break, sean. >> the polls in iowa have been wrong in 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012 and now 2016. they're notoriously bad. so my next question is, here's hillary clinton and really if she didn't get the coin flips six times she loses to bernie sanders. what do you make of her terrible performance? >> well, i tell you what i make of it. i wand to find out where that coin comes from because i want it. okay? she won six or something. >> she won six. >> i think bernie sanders better check that coin because maybe it's a double head. but it is sort of ridiculous. i will say it's a caucus system in iowa. it's fine. a different system. it is a very complex system and for tabulating votes and for going through the process it makes it certainly much more difficult but it is a different system as to why per your question. it's quite a bit different.
i must say i think that the good old simple system where you cast your vote like we have as an example in new hampshire, i think it's better. simpler, better, more direct. but the caucus system serves a purpose. i understand it very well. >> you have to go. will you improve your ground game? some people thought there could be improvement there. we have about 30 seconds. >> well, we didn't spend much money on the ground game and i would agree. we didn't have much of a ground game because i didn't think i would be winning and et cetera and so honored to come in second. most people said i wouldn't be in the top ten originally starting in iowa. yeah. in retrospect we could have done much bet we are a ground game. yes. >> thank you so much for taking time and see you in new hampshire this week later hopefully. thank you for being with us. >> thank you. thank you very much, sean. all right. coming up next, tonight, right here on "hannity." [ chanting ]
all right. bernie sanders supporters. did you see that? chanting during hillary clinton's speech last night. she's a liar. pretty unbelievable. we'll check in with monica crowley and geraldo rivera. that's nextment later tonight, gop contenders, they both put all their eggs in the basket of new hampshire. governor kasich, chris christie are here because they want new hampshire to be a big impact on the race. will it happen? we'll ask both of them as they join us later tonight. that and so much more on this very busy news night right here on "hannity." use dulcolax tablets for gentle overnight relief suppositories for relief in minutes and stool softeners for comfortable relief of hard stools. dulcolax, designed for dependable relief and where she keeps... the fire extinguisher. our valentines diamond heart pendant can be worn four ways.

how does this happen in a presidential campaign? hillary, she won all six of them. here with reaction, monica crowley, senior correspondent geraldo rivera. do you have a coin on you? let's flip it. impossible. i don't believe it. >> 64 to 1 odds and want her to pick my powerball next time. >> yeah. you don't believe it either. >> it's improbable. i'm a logical person. i think that 64 to 1 you win 1 out of 64 times. >> the clintons. we are surprised? sean, really. >> i'm with you. all right. that is pretty -- this is an underreported story. at bernie sanders campaign headquarters when hillary's speaking they're chanting she's a liar. these are democrats. watch this. [ chanting ]
it's as loud as madison square garden. let's go rangers. it's hi lair jous. >> democrats understand the truth about both clintons. this is why she had a political near death experience last night. this is also explains the rise of bernie sanders. >> but she really lost -- now, think of this. if she didn't get the six coin tosses, bernie sanders wins. he would have won. >> i don't think the math is quite -- >> no, it is. he would have won. >> yeah. >> well, she would have -- at least three of the six. >> no coin tosses. >> the point about the -- i'm surprised you haven't made a loop of that and played it in your car driving to work. she's a liar. i mean, they're young people. very enthusiastic. they are campaigning in the midst of -- >> they're democrats saying this about the --
>> saying where benghazi and e-mails, you know, where the allegation that she's been -- >> here's -- >> predicted the truth -- >> hillary gets the nomination and may go to jail as monica knows. they're not voting for her. they're not going to the polls for her. >> who do they vote for? maybe stay home and not vote for the republican. >> this explains the rise of bernie sanders. so we spent a lot of time talking about the rise of donald trump and ted cruz. look. hillary clinton spent almost 30 years as a national figure, a national icon. right? and yet, she is now in a duel with a 74-year-old dishevelled socialist. >> let me play this. hillary loses. first thing i notice is how angry she is as she's speaking before the crowd. ed henry reported she was supposed to do a rope line. chelsea and bill supposed to speak. none of that happens. she races out in the middle of tom harkin's speech angry and
then sounds a transformation. she sounds more left wing than the socialist bernie sanders and by the way she almost sounds like howard dean. watch. >> i know we can create more good paying jobs and raise incomes for hard working americans again. i know that we can finish the job of universal health care coverage for every single man, woman and child. i know we can combat climate change and be the clean energy superpower of the 21st century. i know we can make college affordable and get student debt off the backs of young people. >> she sounds like bernie. she switched like a -- >> first of all, calling her angry is sexist. i just want to caution you. >> really? really? she looks angry. sounded angry. >> it sounded a lot like howard dean. i wonder if it was the same hall where you're screaming like that. why are you screaming? you have a microphone. it's amplified and shrieking
that way is an unpleasant -- it's audio and not sex. not talking gender. like maybe she needs like a rock n roller earphone. >> the reason to elevate the voice and speak is because, first of all, trying to be heard. all of the energy enthusiasm on the bernie sanders side and she thinks if she raises her voice she is heard or get the message across. the problem is not that the american people are democrats don't know who she is. it's that they do know who she is, sean. they're rejecting her. >> screaming gay rights, abortion, obamacare, no guns, free college, global warming. >> you know why? she came of age on the far left and saw her husband remake the party as a more moderate pragmatic party. that was her husband's party. what she is trying to navigate now is barack obama's party on the far left. >> i have a -- >> real quick. >> i think that bernie sanders is far left. i think ted cruz is far right
and they're one-trick ponies and hillary will be the nominee and will have a rough road to hoe. >> i think if she makes it out of jail. another big story. all right. i'm glad i could make you laugh. coming up, ohio governor john kasich wants to shake up the republican race with a strong showing in new hampshire. he'll join us. governor chris christie, well, he wants to do the same thing in new hampshire. he'll tell us what he needs to do to become a top contender. straight ahead. ind a bathroom? cialis for daily use is approved to treat both erectile dysfunction and the urinary symptoms of bph, like needing to go frequently, day or night. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions and medicines, and ask if your heart is healthy enough for sex do not take cialis if you take nitrates for chest pain, or adempas for pulmonary hypertension, as it may cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure. do not drink alcohol in excess. side effects may include headache, upset stomach, delayed backache or muscle ache. to avoid long-term injury, get medical help right away for an erection lasting more than four hours. if you have any sudden decrease or loss in hearing or vision,

meeting tonight and, you know, we feel very good about where we are and we have to do well in new hampshire but we are prepared to move to south carolina, nevada, to the south, to michigan. i mean, we have a -- >> you are in all the way? >> prepared to be able to move. yeah. >> in fairness, i have two other polls from thursday and this is not a long time ago. we are at 12 in the suffolk poll and nbc 11. you're probably right there at the double digit mark, 10, 12, somewhere in that area combined. and that would probably put you in third place if things hold where they are now. but you want to do better than that. >> well, we want to be a story coming out of here. it will be up to you, sean, to say the day after how you think we did. and we'll -- no. i'm serious. we'll sit down on the 10th and decide whether we've done well enough to be a story because then i'll be heard. i'm least known of all the mayor candidates. i am not a celebrity candidate. so therefore, i need to get some
oxygen and if we do well here, we've got many, many people across the country who are poised to jump in. and look. i mean, the message is really simple. i'm not only a guy fighting but i win. whether it's balancing the federal budget, reforming welfare, fixing ohio, cutting more taxes than any governor in the country, surpluses -- >> that's a good point. do you think that message -- i know your record because i covered you when you were the head of the budget committee in washington. that's how old i am but i covered your campaign in ohio. i watched you evolve as a candidate and you have that record. do you think it's gotten out there enough? >> well, in new hampshire it has. people know me now. we do these town halls and, you know, nationally, no. people still don't know me and that's why it's imperative we do well in new hampshire. i have said all along if we get smoked up here, i'm going back to ohio. i don't think that's going to
happen, sean. i've been telling you all along to creep up, creep up, creep up and begin to emerge. in a tight field like this with so many candidates, gordon humphrey the former u.s. senator says we have the best ground game he's seen in 40 years. the ground game, the town halls, the positive media, we are running a positive campaign. talking about the record. you know, i believe it's working here. but we are going to know in about six days. >> all right. governor, we appreciate it. we'll continue to allow you to use these air waves to get your story out and i think our audience needs to hear from all of you guys. very big primary. one week from tonight we'll know the answers. thank you. >> all right, sean. thank you. coming up, new jersey governor chris christie wrote off last night's iowa results and also focusing in heavily on new hampshire. governor christie is here to explain next. this and more tonight. caring for someone with alzheimer's means i am a lot of things. i am his sunshine.
i am his advocate. so i asked about adding once-daily namenda xr to his current treatment for moderate to severe alzheimer's. it works differently. when added to another alzheimer's treatment, it may improve overall function and cognition. and may slow the worsening of symptoms for a while. vo: namenda xr doesn't change how the disease progresses. it shouldn't be taken by anyone allergic to memantine, or who's had a bad reaction to namenda xr or its ingredients. before starting treatment, tell their doctor if they have, or ever had, a seizure disorder, difficulty passing urine, liver, kidney or bladder problems, and about medications they're taking. certain medications, changes in diet, or medical conditions may affect the amount of namenda xr in the body and may increase side effects. the most common side effects are headache, diarrhea, and dizziness. he's always been my everything. now i am giving back. ask their doctor about once-daily namenda xr and learn about a free trial offer at namendaxr.com.

candidate new jersey governor chris christie earlier today, down playing the results of the iowa caucus and made it clear new hampshire is the place he's looking for a win. joining us now, governor chris christie. you did make a decision. you didn't spend money in iowa. like john kasich, you went all in in new hampshire. and some people don't know this. only 1.2% of the delegates were awarded last night but it gets the process started. you're happy with your decision. >> oh, yeah. i definitely am. i decided to go all in new hampshire. i went to iowa and campaigned in iowa to show respect for the process. but between the super pac that supported our campaign, we spent a half million dollars in iowa, jeb bush spent $15 million. and he got, you know 1% more than we did. >> boston herald, last four
polls has you at five, cnn, at eight. suffolk at six and nbc "wall street journal" at seven. where do you need to place in new hampshire for to you say okay, this is a viable campaign, we're going to south carolina, super tuesday, we're going all the way? >> i think i have to be the best governor in the race. >> the best governor in the race? why do you say that? >> because i think that there is going to be a governor in the final four. it will be trump and cruz and rubio and a governor in the final four. >> what did you think of the results otherwise last night? any surprises to you? >> none. none. i thought ted cruz was going to win. i thought media hysteria about donald trump, for me, when he skipped the debate, i said this is over. if he's not going to debate in des moines, he's not going to win this thing. then, the press started to
batter on ted cruz and there got to be a popular notion that ted cruz had blown it and was going to lose. i spent enough time in iowa to know ted cruz had the best organization in iowa and was going to win. so nothing shocking happened. marco rubio beat ben carson, congratulations. >> how do you excel? you're alt 8, 7, 6, and 5. how do you get there? >> can i remind you about the des moines register that was wrong by nine points? >> the polls were awful. they were wrong in 2000, 2012 and 2016. >> just off. and by the way they haven't been any better up here. this was supposed to be back in 2000, a close race between you
know john mccain and george w. bush. john mccain beat him by 19 points. in 2008 supposed to be a close race and it was not. so the fact is that these polls have never been that great. i don't think any of us know where we are and we're all bunched together. i think we have the best organization on the ground up here in new hampshire, too. we have done, you know over 40,000 doors in the past four weekends. >> governor we're going to see you up there. we're heading up to new hampshire ourselves. look forward, one week from tonight we'll have the answers. thank you for being with us. >> thank you. >> coming up, we need your help, our question of the day, next.

weyoung company around but if we want to keep the soda pop flowing we need fresh ideas! >>got it. we slow, we die. >>what about cashing out? no! i'm trying to build something here. >>how about using fedex ground for shipping? >>i don't need some kid telling me how to run a business! i've been doing this for 4 long months. >>fedex ground can help us save money and deliver fast to our customers. not bad, kid. you remind me of a younger me. >>aiden! the dog is eating your retainer again. let's take a short 5-minute recess. fedex ground is faster to more locations than ups ground.
tomorrow night, marco rubio will join us tomorrow night, 10:00 eastern. as always, thank you for being here and we'll see you back here tomorrow night. "the o'reilly factor" is on. tonight: we will go on to get the republican nomination and we will go on totveasily beat hillary or bernie or whoever the hell they throw up there.@e >> so what about the iowa vote? donald trump placing second. did his debate snub hurt him? >> god bless the great state of iowa. [cheers and applause] >> ted cruz winning in iowa. very religious voters put him over the top. what will that mean in new hampshire? >> when i am our nominee, we are going to unify this party and we are going to unify the conservative movement. >> marco rubio almost beat trump. what does that say about the republican field? >> i stand here tonight breathing a big sigh of
