he had in new hampshire, he would solidify it as a no doubt about it front-runner. we have never had a republican candidate win both new hampshire and south carolina and not go on to win the nomination. cecilia, things could get harder for trump going forward. right now the anti-trump is divided among five other candidates. i would expect one, or two, of those candidates drop out in the coming week. trump will have to go up against a less divided opposition with the antitrump vote more unified. the question is, can he win? >> jon, thank you. the presidential race heading into the solemn funeral for supreme court justice antonin scalia. president obama and first lady
