rubio getting a lot of attention. some said he is the big winner because the establishment and safe money will start to gravitate his way. do you agree? >> no question. he has all of momentum moving into new hampshire. he spent a lot of money and time there. the establishment in all likelihood will coalesce behind him. trouble for jeb bush, and chris chris christie, and john john kasich. but out-perpetuated all -- out performed all expectations. >> john: cruz was the winner but they had trump leading in a lot of the polls by a significant margin. maybe the pollsters and the pundits were the losers. >> ted cruz's group the evangelical group. and things got chippy at the end with iowa in donald trump with the controversies over the debate and the different moves

for jeb and some of the other traditional candidates. what is your take on the democrat side? >> not a great night for hillary. kind of groundhog day, similar to sway. they will get the same number ofx delegates.@p@x not a great night for hillary.p still probably the favorite to win it all, but not a good night for her. >> john: that's a great point. some of the polls had her up by 40%. and they come out pretty much a tie. odds are he's going to win new hampshire. the first couple weeks will not look good for hillary clinton. >> she was supposed to walk, and now she is the underdog. and she still enjoyed a comfortable double digit lead.
