we have a lot more coming up from the oscars. we turn to the white house right now, "your voice, your vote," just one day away from the critical super tuesday contest. this he'll cast their ballots. could make hillary clinton and donald trump unstoppable. also have a brand-new poll out moments ago it shows trump with his biggest lead yet at nearly 50% across the country. abc's tom llamas has all the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you as we just saw polls show donald trump may have a big night tomorrow but now he's dealing with a problem involving the kkk and the other candidates are all seizing on it. >> wow. >> wow, this is amazing. >> reporter: overnight, donald trump speaking to a massive crowd in alabama, a super tuesday state, but not mentioning a syllable about the controversy involving the ku klux klan and their former grand wizard david duke. >> wow say you condemn them and don't want their support? >> well, i have to look at the group. i mean i don't know what group
>> i'm just talking about david duke and the ku klux klan here. >> i don't know -- i don't know david duke. i don't believe i've ever met him i'm pretty sure i never met him. >> unloading on him by his rivals. >> we cannot be a party that nominates someone who refuses to condemn white supremacists and the ku klux klan. >> trump later tweeting about david duke, i disavow and sending this clip from friday. >> i didn't even know he endorsed me. david duke endorsed me. i disavow. >> this as trump's other rival senator ted cruz hammered him for not releasing his tax returns as he and senator rubio have. >> there have been multiple media reports about donald's business dealings with the mob, with the pfaff ya, maybe his tax returns show that those business dealings are a lot more extensive. >> business dealings with the mafia. >> we don't know. >> and trump not the only one feeling the heat. governor chris christie who endorsed trump struggled to
policies. >> are you saying now you endorse the ban on having non noncitizen muslims -- >> no, that's not what i'm saying. that's only one piece of an overall approach to national security. >> but you disagree with it. >> i said that very plainly. listen, george, here's the bottom line, elections are choices. >> reporter: and overnight, things continued to get ugly. responding to trump dubbing him -- >> little marco. >> rubio mocking trump for having small hands. >> you know what they say about men with small hands -- [ cheers and applause ] >> you can't trust them. you can't trust them. >> they say the republican race in a very strange spot right now. george. >> it sure is. tom. this crowd know what is they say about small hands, i guess. we just heard it. i want to bring this to jon karl and, jon, looking ahead to tomorrow night, big contest. give people a sense of what marco rubio and ted cruz need to do to kind of slow down donald trump. >> well, george, they've got to
it. for ted cruz, everything is at stake because look at this. his home state votes on super tuesday. he's got to win there. if he can get 50% of the vote there he can get away with the lion's share of the delegates but he has to do more. all these southern states, that is where ted cruz has banked his campaign. he's got to find a way to win there. as for marco rubio, it's unclear where he can win. he's been targeting minnesota, virginia, arkansas, he can keep getting delegates by coming in a close second or third, but he's got to find a place to win. i think 20% is his biggest number, 20% in texas if he gets less than that he can get shut out of all of texas' delegate. >> they have to build up enough delegates to try to block trump even if they can't get there themselves. on the democratic side hillary clinton coming out of that big win saturday in south carolina. looks like she's ready to roll through the south. >> that's right and bernie sanders has to find a way to win somewhere where we don't expect him to. his home state votes, he can win there. probably massachusetts next door
to geddes mated again in the south. >> okay, jon karl, thanks very much. we're going to be out in force on super tuesday. i'll be with our whole political team for a prime tiemme show and on "gma" and "world news tonight." >> a storm bringing severe weather to the plains. where are you, rob? >> great-looking crowd down there and great-looking crowd on stage. happy oscars monday. we do have severe weather beneed to talk about not only today but in through super tuesday. today we're most concerned about big hail and gusty winds, tulsa
