tv   Erin Burnett Out Front  CNN  March 2, 2016 4:00pm-5:01pm PST

4:00 pm
malaysia airlines flight 370." thanks very much for watching. please join us right here tomorrow in "the situation room." i'm wolf blitzer. outfront next, full court press. the republican establishment in an all out push to derail donald trump. will it come down to clinton versus trump? the attacks starting already. did chris christie steal the show from donald trump last night? let's go "outfront." good evening, i'm erin burnett. outfront tonight, trump versus the gop. republicans waking up today to a reality that many of them seem to not like. donald trump's overwhelming
4:01 pm
victories on super tuesday were overwhelming. the problem is many in the party establishment are all but ignoring the record turnout of voters casting their ballots for trump. trump though may be the one extending an olive branch. his campaign reaching out to house speaker paul ryan who had tough words for donald trump. nebraska senator went so far as to say he would favor the creation of a new party if trump won the gop nomination. mitt romney promised a major address tomorrow on the, quo quote/unquote, state of the race. the drum beat continues to build. >> the statements he's making have really nothing in common with the republican party. >> here's my thinking. donald trump is not a republican. anybody but trump. >> okay. there are a couple of examples of people who would like to see the field drop off leaving just one candidate that they think
4:02 pm
could lead the fight successfully against trump. dr. ben carson issuing a statement today saying he's skipping tomorrow's debate, saying he doesn't see a political path forward. jason, it's pretty incredible to see all this hate for trump coming out now from the establishment. is it too late tittle, too late? >> reporter: their campaigns pushing ahead, but after last night it's becoming more and more clear no one maybe able to stop donald trump. that's perfectly fine with those who support him. donald trump with a dominating super tuesday showing. >> it's only too bad that winner didn't take all because if winner took all, this thing is over. >> reporter: the gop frontrunner strengthening his position as the likely gop nominee, picking up victories in seven states and expanding his delegate lead over rivals senators ted cruz and
4:03 pm
marco rubio. but as trump marches toward the nomination, the republican party is erupting in an all out civil war. mitt romney will deliver a speech tomorrow in utah where sources tell cnn he plans to step his criticism of trump. >> we have good reason to believe there is a bombshell in donald trump's taxes. >> governor romney, go out and get them. you can do it. >> thank you. >> i'm so honored and pleased to have his endorsement. >> reporter: romney isn't the only one. >> i will not support donald trump now and i will not support him should he move on. >> reporter: lindsey graham is refusing to commit to supporting trump if he claims the party's nomination. >> ask me that after the convention.
4:04 pm
>> reporter: not all in the party are critical of trump. >> the establishment republicans are bedwetting over this. don't pretend that somehow all these voters who have gone out and voted for him are stupid. they're not stupid. i'll tell you what they are. they're angry. >> reporter: a super pac with the backing of republican business leaders is trying to stop trump from getting that far. >> how much do we really know about donald trump? >> reporter: releasing a series of television ads taking aim at trump's past comments. >> trump university was a scam. >> reporter: as trump's bid highlights divisions within the party, the frontrunner is testing out his general election message, touting his ability to bring people together. >> i'm a unifier. i am a unifier. >> reporter: and erin, polls here in michigan favoring trump as well. most recent poll showing trump at 39%, cruz at 19%, rubio at
4:05 pm
18%. also rubio's home state trump is leading there as well. out here at a rally earlier today, one rubio supporter conceding maybe the only person who can stop trump is trump. >> thank you very much. outfront now, the editor of the weekly standard, a trump supporter, a communications director in congress, and the adviser to four presidents including clinton and reagan. welcome to all. thank you all for being here with me in new york. mitt romney is going to hold a press conference. he's going to be hitting very hard against donald trump. not picking anyone else, but going against donald trump. you heard lindsey graham there in jason carol's piece. he's not even a republican. republican voters are coming out and voting for donald trump. why can't the establishment accept that he can win? >> i do think there's a real
4:06 pm
danger. what trump has is a whole lot of voters who turning out who are dissatisfied and are angry and feel betrayed by the republican party and the establishment. the leaders are saying we don't want trump. we don't give a damn what you think. we really don't care. we want somebody else. we're going to put our own person in there. that is the kind of message i would think would be very threatening to the future of the republican party, certainly threatening in this campaign. >> what do you say to that, bill? he's now the infamous line "i love the poorly educated." he's doing well among people with more and more educatin. his base of support seems to be getting broader. >> at this point, if you care about the country and you think donald trump shouldn't be president, you have an obligation to say so. donald trump got 34.2% of the vote last night.
4:07 pm
he did better than anyone else. he didn't get a majority of the delegates either last night. this is an open race. donald trump says he's a unifier. i'm a unifier. mitt romney is a unifier. we're speaking for the 65% of the people who didn't vote for donald trump. they get a say too. the idea that trump wins 7 of 11 and i'm supposed to go, oh, the race is over -- trump is ahead. trump has run an excellent campaign. voters in the next bunch of states, take another look at this. >> 332 delegates for donald trump. 100-plus more than cruz and 200 more than marco rubio. >> add those two up and what disea does that get you? the same as trump. >> some of those jeb voters didn't go to marco rubio. you can't assume he'll lose that
4:08 pm
the point. >> i don't like the way these guys call on other people to get out. they should make their cases. >> there's been this myth that trump has a ceiling. the cnn poll shows him at 49%. the ceiling keeps being raised. the jeb bush supporters split evenly among the other candidates. you look at the kasich voters and they're second choice is split between rubio and trump. there's this myth that each of these voting blocks are monolithic and switch over to the first candidate exiting the race. >> i think issue with this whole trump has dominated and it is over, i made this point earlier. he only has about 35%. there's an entire -- the majority of republicans do not support him. there's a reason for that because he has gotten away with murder.
4:09 pm
he has not been vetted properly. the media has fallen all over. i'm a conservative. i'm a lifelong conservative. they should have hit him from the very beginning on his record and his questionable republican values. he's a political chameleon. people didn't know anything about his dealings. people are so excited about trump. they wouldn't be if they knew what his record is. >> there were 17 candidates. he's won fair and square the lead. you have to concede that. >> so far. there's a long way to go.
4:10 pm
>> if it were an establishment candidate, i think it's fair to say everybody would be saying presumptive nominee, let's get close to wrapping this up. they're not. they're saying this is a wide open race because they don't like this. >> all these things go against traditional republican values. that is concerning for those of us who are lifelong republicans. >> that's fair game. this was an establishment that insisted donald trump take a loyalty oath. you must be loyal to the person who emerges from the party. that's what we expect of you. is there any loyalty to trump from the establishment? >> no. i was against loyalty oaths. people should be able to vote for whoever they want. >> isn't a loyalty oath childish? >> when you hae the speaker of the house and the republican majority leader and conceding to this narrative that trump is a
4:11 pm
racist, it is a false statement. this man is not a racist. he employs minorities. he supported minority causes. this notion that he deserves that title is wrong. for the republican establishment to coalesce around this narrative is wrong. >> they're not coalescing. >> you showed earlier lindsey graham and pete king. they're elected officials. they represent the voters of the districts and states they were elected by. they're entitled to offer their opinion. >> have they ever done that mitt romney on john mccain? no. >> they thought mitt romney was capable of being president. they don't think donald trump should be president. they're not going to say the same thing about conscien-- >> he's an outsider and he's a threat to their interests.
4:12 pm
>> i want to talk about what happens if someone does drop out of this race. next, ben carson hinting at dropping out of the race for the white house. record turnout on the republican side in virtually ever state that's voted so far. does this spell disaster for the democrats in november? no one has slowed donald trump's campaign as of yet. if it comes down to trump versus clinton, can she win? does sitting behind a new desk make you feel like an svp instead of a vp? then you might be gearcentric. right now, save up to 40% on desks and filing cabinets! office depot officemax. gear up for great®. full of guests on the waye and a cold with sinus pressure, you need fast relief. alka-seltzer plus severe sinus congestion and cough liquid gels rush relief to your tough symptoms. to put you back in control.

4:16 pm
tonight a potential shake-up in the gop race. ben carson hinting his campaign is coming to a close. he's skipping tomorrow's debate after admitting, quote, i do not see a political path forward in light of last evening's results. here's lindsey graham. >> this is one area i agree with mr. trump. he could probably shoot somebody on fifth avenue and that wouldn't shake his voter base. i don't see any ad campaign breaking that coalition apart, but the question is can you consolidate. instead of tearing down donald trump, we need to consolidate the field. i don't think there is anything you can do or say or that i can
4:17 pm
do or say or donald trump can do or say that is going to break apart his support. >> some republicans say it should be john kasich. we'll see how florida and ohio play out on march 15th, depending on how rubio does on that day and kasich does that day. the stakes are so high on march 15th. you're hearing from frustration from marco rubio's supporters over john kasich and the fact that he is still in the race. particularly when you look at the results in virginia last nigh night. i talked to a marco rubio supporter. >> there's not honorable mention in the nomination. john kasich has run a good race,
4:18 pm
but there is no path to victory for him. >> if marco can win florida, he's back in the game. i think we should wait to see what happens march 15th. i believe everybody should have a chance to win your home state. if you don't win your home state, you need to re-evaluate. >> lindsey graham is saying if rubio does not win florida and kasich does not win the ohio, the party should start to unite behind ted cruz. graham has had his own issues with ted cruz as have most of the republicans in the building i'm in right now. it will be interesting to see if other republicans follow suit or if they finally get behind donald trump. it's a mess right now for republicans as they try to figure out a way forward in this presidential race. >> thank you very much. here we are back with our panel. also joining me our political commentator, ben ferguson. people look at you and they say
4:19 pm
this is a guy that doesn't want donald trump. i would think you would be the person saying people should get out, but this is not what you are saying. >> no. i think it is inappropriate. let these candidates have the right to run. it shows weakness on the part of your candidate. in the actual two weeks we're facing, it is better for the stop trump forces to have kasich in the race and let him try to win ohio and have cruz in the race and let him pile up some delegates and rubio in the race and win florida. there's no reason to urge people to get out. as a matter of politics, it looks pathetic. >> be pathetic, ben ferguson. >> third place never adds up to first place. you have the right to run. you have the right to not be delusional while running. >> you are talking about? >> marco rubio is saying i'm doing very well tonight. i'm in third place.
4:20 pm
bronze medal is never a gold medal. if you're in third place, you're in third place. rubio is going to be in third place. he's also down in florida. if you say the polls are wrong in florida, by ten points -- >> what is it with people on tv saying he should have get out of the race? >> the presidential election is way bigger than florida. it's about allowing the people that you're supporting to have time to reassess. >> this is part of the problem. you recall when mike huckabee was pressured to get out of the race to pave the way with mitt romney. this is what people are frustrated with, the political establishment saying get out. >> the pro-trump supporter -- >> tell me how third place gives you first place.
4:21 pm
tell me how. >> as a former track athlete, you have something called the decathlon. you can come in second or third place in different events. if you come in first, you can win the whole thing. let me finish the point, ben. right now we have a decathlon going on here with different stages of the election. we're going to find that out. that's what florida is about. >> no. ted cruz was third in new hampshire. >> he wouldn't have won in the decathlon, to use your example. >> name a state where literally looking ahead where you have legitimate numbers that marco rubio can actually win where he is polling well. you cannot tell me a state. >> marco rubio has a much better chance that ted cruz. >> where? >> florida, pennsylvania, new york. >> you think he's going to come in second or first in any of those honestly? >> yes. why couldn't he? >> in virginia, marco rubio was
4:22 pm
down double digits to donald trump and he closed that gap significantly to about two and a half or three points. he only lost one delegate to donald trump in virginia. he was able to close that gap. late deciders broke for rubio. we have two weeks until florida. that is an eternity. >> what's amazing about this though is you see people, establishment republicans, they run one way or the other. if ted cruz looks like he's going to beat donald trump, they all run over there like a bunch of lemmings. then it was a two-man race between rubio and donald trump. everyone ran to rubio. >> rubio had by far the best debate he's ever had. did it turn out and help him in a real way? the answer is even when he had
4:23 pm
the best night and donald trump had the worst debate, it still did not get him a victory in any place significant. yes, he got one state. >> there is no way marco rubio wins. >> at least you're honest about it. >> even in an head-to-head match up in florida, donald trump still wins. there's no way marco rubio can win. >> that's not true. >> a true statesman, which is what we miss in a lot of this, should be the self-evaluator to say look at the map and i owe it to the american people -- like jeb bush. i have a ton of respect for him the way he dropped out. >> are you kidding me? >> jeb bush spends $30 million attacking rubio. >> i have respect for him because he was man enough to
4:24 pm
know when he wasn't going to win. >> when does the next person drop out? do you wait until after march 15th? >> yes, absolutely. i know it offends all of you. they're not getting out when we want them to. you have mystical knowledge. >> it's not mystical. it's common sense. >> it is not common sense. >> you tell me a guy that is not surging forward is going to somehow randomly surge forward. >> florida is one state. marco rubio has a decent chance of winning florida. it will help ted cruz. you cruz people are crazy if you want rubio out. do you think ted cruz can win florida? >> no way. >> thank you very much. >> no way. >> i think it is a better chance than rubio winning.
4:25 pm
a democratic veteran strategist says it keeps him up at night. we'll talk to him next. if it comes down to donald trump and hillary clinton, who wins the war of words? >> making america great is again is much better than making america whole again. every day you read headlines about businesses being hacked and intellectual property being stolen. that is cyber-crime and it affects each and every one of us. microsoft created the digital crimes unit to fight cyber-crime. we use the microsoft cloud to visualize information so we can track down the criminals. when it comes to the cloud, trust and security are paramount. we're building what we learn back into the cloud to make people and organizations safer.

4:28 pm
4:29 pm
with big super tuesday wins under their belts, both hillary clinton and donald trump are turning their sights on each other. >> it's clear tonight that the stakes in this election have never been higher and the rhetoric we're hearing on the other side has never been lower. [ booing ] >> trying to divide america between us and them is wrong and we're not going to let it work. [ cheering ] >> i'm going to go after one person and that's hillary clinton on the assumption she's allowed to run, which is a big assumption. i don't know that she's going to be allowed to run. >> of course, that was a
4:30 pm
reference to the e-mails, something donald trump has talked a lot about. this is not going to be pretty. i want to bring back my panel, bill crystal, a cnn political commentator, and a democratic and editor in chief, and our senior political analyst. a lot of people hear him saying unifier and say wait a minute. is he really going to be a unifier? >> i would encourage them to look at turnout and the vast number of democrats and independents turning out at the polls. he's spanning the ideological spectrum by bringing in democrats that republicans have hoped to garner in for many years by talking in free trade and placing tariffs on mexican imports. in virginia, you see a million people turning out. 50% more than 2000. that is huge.
4:31 pm
you see democrat turnout down in every single state. he is broadening the republican platform. >> there are so many things about a clinton-trump race, which would be fascinating to watch. one of them is you have the two people that people say they hate the most actually winning, which is fascinating. donald trump, 60% of voters have an unfavorable opinion of him. same question to hillary clinton, the second most unfavorable person, when people are asked the top word that comes to mind with her name, it's dishonest. >> they don't think they should be president, which is a judgment. i think typically you would say that would be a negative campaign where people would push up the negatives of their
4:32 pm
opponent than their own. i'm not a fan of trump obviously, but i've told underestimated him. among republicans, he moved his numbers. he was originally very unfavorable. people like me were misled by that. well, trump has a ceiling because he has all these unfavorables. >> now you're admitting the ceiling is broken. >> all politics is fluid. candidates have a chance to make their case. maybe donald trump can make it as good a case to swing voters. >> how nasty is it going to get? hillary clinton is going to fight back? she's going to have to. >> i think donald has shown he is nasty in his history. this is not the first time we've seen a nasty donald trump. he's been nasty in his entire history with his business. hillary clinton is a unifier. she wants to bring everybody to the table. donald trump is saying i don't
4:33 pm
want muslims, black people, or women. >> he loves women. >> he loves women? i'm glad he loves women. >> you can speak in generalizations and say donald trump doesn't like these contingencies of people, but they're false statements. that is an accusation. words matter, specifics matter. generalizations are unacceptable. >> he's yet to denounce the kkk. >> he has denounced the kkk. >> he has denounced david duke. >> he denounced a white supremacist robo call with me. >> those words have not come out of his mouth once. >> they're synonymous. >> can we get back to the
4:34 pm
original question? what kind of race this is going to be? >> we just got a taste of it. >> both of them are very divisive, but i do see signs on both candidates. they're trying to make that outreach into various groups. trump calls ryan. he has a press conference last night. we'll have to wait and see about trump. i think he has a long way to go. i share many of bill's reservations about him, but i think he has the possibility to morph into something. i think he can be housebroken before this is all over. >> you did have last night donald trump beginning his victory speech saying ted cruz ran a great race in texas and had a great night. he was criticized in south carolina not saying anything about jeb bush. clearly he learned from that mistake. >> he's been a quick study on
4:35 pm
the campaign trail. if you watch him, he watches his audience carefully. he's a little like reagan, i think. >> i agree. >> he sees what people care about. he speaks more about those things and things that he would say are foolish, that are offensive, he tends to back off. he would never say he was wrong, but you never hear more about it. i think hillary clinton will beat him in the general election and comfortably, but we shouldn't underestimate him. >> we saw an instance where a black woman was harassed, called the n-word, spit on, he sees that and says nothing. if he is watching his audience doi doing that, why didn't he say don't bring that to my rally? silence does equal violence. >> when you have an audience of 34,000 people, 15,000 people, you don't know everything that is going on among your audience.
4:36 pm
it's the responsibility of the police officers in the room to take care of the situation. >> when he saw the video, he can say now that i know this happened this is unacceptable. >> i think that would help to come out and say that. >> i think that would be helpful if he's a unifier, but he's yet to do it once. >> outfront next, republican voters turning out in droves on super tuesday. could it spell disaster for democrats in november? one of the few members of congress to buck his party and endorse donald trump is my guest tonight. ♪ ♪

4:40 pm
tonight, new warning signs. the democrats are facing what could be a serious enthusiasm problem. primary results show turnout for democrats is down in almost every state. in some cases down almost 50%. this is despite hillary clinton holding one of her largest rallies in new york tonight. >> make no mistake about it. the other side has a very different vision about what our country should look like, how we should treat each other. there's a lot of finger pointing and insulting going on over in
4:41 pm
their primary. >> bernie sanders also drawing a large crowd tonight. you see him there. their support pales in comparison when it comes to the flood of new and energized voters showing up on the republican side. it's an enthusiasm gap that our democratic strategist says keeps him up at night. >> i want you to look at one thing here, erin. if you knew something else about this campaign, this is one pair of numbers that are shooting terror through some democrats. total number of voters to turn out to date in this race just 2.6, 2.7 million on the democratic side. well over 5 million on the republican side. let's put it into a little bit of context here. this is goes up and down throughout elections. you can see it kind of goes up and down. not really clear there's a relationship between that and the general election except right in here. 2008. this is what happened in the
4:42 pm
primary with barack obama. look at those whopping numbers that showed up for him and then he translated that into a massive win here in the general election. big, big changer. now is that what's shaping up over here? we don't really know. we do know this. if it keeps going that way, it could turn into this. enthusiasm goes up and down throughout the elections. there was a lot of enthusiasm for barack obama. in our most recent poll of enthusiasm among voters out there right now, on the democratic side -- you see the democrats and independents, 19% of them said, yeah, we are enthusiastic. go to the republican side, 38% people that way. that's what's keeping democrats up at night. that is a big, big gap there. does it say that way all the way
4:43 pm
through fall and general election? we don't know. >> those are stunning numbers. one thing i found really interesting is hillary clinton did very well with minority voters when you look at south carolina. better than even than barack obama. if she turns out to be the nominee, could that help offset the enthusiasm gap? >> that's an interesting question because think about this. she did really, really well when you went into some of the southern states down here, but here's the question. the southern states down here are not really that likely to wind up being general election voters for democrats. some of them may be. these are not necessarily the cornerstones of where democrats have to do well. because they're win or take all, she may do well there, but not win the state. is that enough to overcome the surge of republican voters? we don't have the math on that yet. something for both sides to be
4:44 pm
thinking a lot about. >> back with me, my panel. pretty stunning numbers. >> very stunning numbers. but i do think you have to put this into context. we have to pause and recognize that there's a new chapter in american history. she'll go into this election as a frontrunner. i think she'll go in as a favorite. with trump having a real chance and republicans if they're not careful, can chase away a lot of those new voters in how they handle the next few weeks. >> do you think she can overcome that enthusiasm gap? it's a very interesting point. she did better, 86% of the black vote in south carolina, than president obama. south carolina is almost certain to go gop, so it almost doesn't matter. >> she has a lot to work to do.
4:45 pm
on the republican side, it's been a show. there's no show on the democratic side. you have five candidates, six candidates, pushing, pushing, pushing for new voters. on the democratic side, you have two people and one pushing for new voters. when you come to the general, you're going to see the president out there campaigning for hillary, which will be a big difference. you have the commander and chief out there saying this is my choice. >> you'll have the unpopular commander and chief campaigning for her. those problems, the e-mails, her vulnerabiliti vulnerabilities, benghazi, the ponzi scheme of the clinton foundation, you can bet they'll come out if donald trump is the nominee on the other side. there are so many unknowns. the republicans have opened their wounds and let it all come
4:46 pm
out. >> it's going to be a little hard to reconcile that. at the end of the day they're going to nominate trump and have a lot of unhappy non-trump supporters or vice versa. >> isn't it the same thing with bernie sanders? >> i think it is a little easier. i think the sanders people pretty much fall in line. don't you think? >> thank you all. outfront next, gop leaders desperate to stop donald trump. you're heard quite a few of them earlier in this show, but now my next guest, a republican congressman, is endorsing him. chris christie saying it all during trump's victory speech. you could hear trump, but you were looking at christie. i've heard it all. eat more fiber. flax seeds. yogurt. get moving. keep moving. i know! try laxatives. been there, done that.
4:47 pm
my chronic constipation keeps coming back. i know. tell me something i don't know. vo: linzess works differently from laxatives. linzess treats adults with ibs with constipation or chronic constipation. it can help relieve your belly pain, and lets you have more frequent and complete bowel movements that are easier to pass. do not give linzess to children under six and it should not be given to children six to seventeen. it may harm them. don't take linzess if you have a bowel blockage. get immediate help if you develop unusual or severe stomach pain, especially with bloody or black stools. the most common side effect is diarrhea sometimes severe. if it's severe stop taking linzess and call your doctor right away. other side effects include gas, stomach-area pain and swelling. talk to your doctor about managing your symptoms proactively with linzess.
4:48 pm
this just got interesting. why pause to take a pill? or stop to find a bathroom? cialis for daily use is approved to treat both erectile dysfunction and the urinary symptoms of bph, like needing to go frequently, day or night. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions and medicines, and ask if your heart is healthy enough for sex do not take cialis if you take nitrates for chest pain, or adempas for pulmonary hypertension, as it may cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure. do not drink alcohol in excess. side effects may include headache, upset stomach, delayed backache or muscle ache. to avoid long-term injury, get medical help right away for an erection lasting more than four hours. if you have any sudden decrease or loss in hearing or vision, or any symptoms of an allergic reaction, stop taking cialis and get medical help right away. ask your doctor about cialis and a $200 savings card
