i'm don dahler. captioning funded by cbs it's wednesday, march 2nd, 2016. this is the "cbs morning news." pulling away. donald trump and hillary clinton score big victories on super tuesday, and now both candidates are sizing each other up as possible foes in the general election. >> hillary clinton doesn't have a clue. >> that work, that work is not to make america great again. america never stopped being great.
at least four people in alabama are hurt when a tornado batters the birmingham area. survivors say they never saw it coming. welcome back to earth! with a smile and a thumb's up, astronaut scott kelly returned from orbit. what comes next for the man who spent nearly a year in space. good morning from the studio 57 newsroom at cbs news headquarters here in new york. good to be with you. i'm anne-marie green. donald trump and hillary clinton rolled up decisive super tuesday victories. both trump and clinton solidified control of their races, if not control of their parties, and began to focus on each other. trump, battling opponents, and hardening resistance from the republican establishment, won in the deep south and as far north as massachusetts. major garrett begins our coverage.
looking for a knockout punch and he nearly got it. after sweeping contests in the south, trump continued to confound the republican establishment on super tuesday and finds himself well on the way to securing the gop nomination. >> i think, honestly, we have done something that almost nobody thought could be done. and i'm very proud of it. >> reporter: trump won the majority of conservative republicans and moderates as well and riding a wave of voters who are fed up with washington. in several states, he scored double-digit wins and is looking forward to facing hillary clinton. >> i watched hillary's speech and she is talking about wages have been poor and everything is poor and everything is doing badly. she has been there for so long. i mean, if she hasn't straightened it out by now, she is not going to straighten it out in the next four years. it's just going to become worse and worse. >> reporter: trump's decisive wins was a blow to cruz but he won texas and oklahoma. >> as long as the field is divided, donald trump's path to the nomination remains more
disaster for republicans. >> reporter: cruz has the money to keep going, but for marco rubio, it was a long and disappointing night. despite his win in minnesota, his first victory in this campaign, some have called on rubio to get out of the race. >> if i have to campaign in 50 states and in every territory, i will do that to ensure he is not the nominee and i am. i will campaign as long as it takes. one more point. no one is coming to us and say get out so we can rally around donald trump. >> reporter: trump remains at odds with republican party leaders. in his victory remarks, trump said he would try to get along with house speaker paul ryan but if ryan didn't play ball, he, the speaker, would pay a long price. trump's republican rivals have dim prospects of ever catching up. major garrett, cbs news, palm beach, florida. >> trump racked up huge delegate gathering victories.
1,237 needed to win. on the democratic side, hillary clinton is widening the gap between herself and bernie sanders. clinton won big in delegate-rich states like texas, georgia, and virginia. and while the vermont senator won his home state, clinton came out on top in neighboring massachusetts. all told, she won 7 of super tuesday's 11 races. nancy cordes is with the clinton campaign in miami. >> reporter: after a slow start to this election season, hillary clinton is starting to pull away. this wasn't a knockout punch. there are still many more races to come. but she has now established a lead in the delegate count and it will be very, very difficult for bernie sanders to catch up. >> what a super tuesday! >> reporter: hillary clinton swept six southern states, thanks, in large part, to huge support from african-americans, who make up more than a quarter
southern states that voted yesterday. hillary clinton had at least 75% support among them. >> i believe what we need in america today is more love and kindness. >> reporter: with tuesday's victories in hand, the clinton campaign is seemingly turning an eye towards the general election and a potential showdown with donald trump. >> it's clear tonight that the stakes in this election have never been higher and the rhetoric we are hearing on the other side has never been lower. >> reporter: but clinton's democratic opponent bernie sanders says he is not going anywhere. >> by the end of tonight, we are going to win many hundreds of delegates. >> reporter: sanders did pick up a few states of his own on super tuesday. his home state of vermont and minnesota and colorado.
drop out. he raised $42 million last month, so he has got plenty of money and there are six more states voting over the next week, including michigan, which is delegate rich and it has 142 delegates. nancy cordes, cbs news, miami. with 35 states yet to vote, hillary clinton holds a nearly 3-1 edge over sanders in delegates. nearly half of her support comes from so-called super delegates who are free to support any candidate they wish. so where did clinton and trump draw their support from? anthony mason has a look at our exit polling data. >> reporter: with hillary clinton and donald trump having strong nights, we wanted to look at the architecture of their strength on super tuesday. let's look at senator clinton first. she won 88% of democratic voters for whom experience was the top issue. she won 8 out of 10
among women, she took almost two-thirds, 65%, and those who ranked the economy the top issue. donald trump won six states and here is a look where his strength came from. he won 63% of republicans who wanted an outsider and he won a majority of voters who ranked immigration as their top issue and he won 44% of voters who put change at top and he won 37% of conservatives, although those who describe themselves very conservative, ted cruz had the highest numbers there. with hillary clinton's strong night, how would sanders voters feel if clinton was the nominee ultimately? they are split down the middle. 38% said they would be satisfied with clinton and 79% said they would not. a different look when you look at the republican side of things. among nontrump voters on super tuesday in the gop side, fully 74%, nearly three-quarters, told us they would not be satisfied with donald trump as their nominee. so a deep chasm in the republican party.

with and who is supporting him? >> he won with lower -- low income voters, higher income voters in some places. so the trump coalition bounces all over the place, depending on the states, which is one of the things that republicans are trying to come to terms with here and certainly his opponents are trying to come to terms with it because ted cruz thought with evangelicals, i'll be able to make inroads and he didn't. >> what can we expect moving forward? you can't deny his success tonight. will they coalesce around trump donald trump or double down on the resistance? >> there is a choice for republicans to make. do they start to move behind donald trump or do they have a resistance movement that has to snap into quick action, because if he is going to be stopped, he delegates. the only way to do that is to start beating him up so badly on these contests that are coming
then marco rubio or ted cruz becomes the person who can win these winner take all states and amass enough delegates and then goes to the convention and fights it out at the convention. the challenge with that is, a, they have to fight fast and furiously. and some republicans may not be ready for that. also, because there are two alternatives now, john kasich making it a third and who knows if ben carson adding another, that splits the anti-trump votes and it's a messier conversation to have, it's messier in terms of the vote. you know, if john kasich hadn't been in the race, marco rubio might have done well enough in virginia to beat donald trump. so the presence of these candidates out there really does change the landscape of things. >> i'm wondering now, after super tuesday, can we look at this more than as a two-man race and the other man being ted cruz? >> you could, except marco rubio continues to be carried aloft by the hopes of the mainstream republicans who are incapable of coming to terms with the idea that donald trump would be the
love. and so while the rubio path to the nomination is now a single file path, very narrow that he must walk, it sustains or continues to exist because there hope that somehow they can use -- that he can do better and get to the convention and have a situation where it can be competitive and where somehow, through some perhaps even some magic, they can deny trump the nomination. so he did not -- he only got one win. that's not a great record. but because there is this real desire to beat donald trump, he is allowed to fight another day where another kind of candidate wouldn't be. >> let's talk about the democrats. hillary clinton did well, as expected. you know, bernie sanders maybe not terrible. but, you know, hillary clinton definitely is way ahead in the delegates. on the flip side, bernie sanders
so i'm wondering is he out of the race? can we write him off? or do you think he will live to fight another day? >> well, he won in enough states that you can't just write him off. he also has a very strong message and a lot of people who are liking him and he has a lot of money so hard to written him off. the biggest problem to him than winning fewer states than hillary clinton and being behind in the delegate count, he still seems to be incapable of doing very well in the african-american community, that is a part of the democratic coalition. you can't be a democratic nominee and not have that kind of vote. so it's one of the reasons why in future states, he'll have a tough time winning, but it also is a flaw in his candidacy if he is going to be the nominee for the party.
