in both virginia and georgia. in his home state of texas...ted cruz is leading with 42 percent... but trump is close behind with 31 percent.experts say voters in these super tuesday states believe trump has the best chance to win the general election in november... and has the most optimistic message. 3 while trump has been leading in the polls... he's *not giving the republican party credit for his success so far. during his interview with john dickerson... on face the nation...trump addressed attacks from fellow candidates... and his frustration with the gop. you just pick up any paper, and it's always talking about, how are we going to overthrow donald trump? i'm representing a tremendous -- i'm representing millions of people that have -- really feel angry and disenfranchise d. and these are great people. and they like me and i love them. and i'll tell you what. we're not being treated right. the republican party is not treating me right, and they're not treating the people that i represent right.
