tv Americas Newsroom With Bill Hemmer and Martha Mac Callum FOX News March 9, 2016 6:00am-8:01am PST
bill: big you night for the trump train and the so-called outsider. late last night bernie sanders pulled off a stage in upset win in the state of michigan. what does it mean today? that's what we are here for. i'm bill hemmer. welcome to america's newsroom. heather: i'm heather chilledders in for martha maccallum. >> i don't think i have ever had
so many horrible things said about me in one week. $38 million of horrible lies. but that's okay. it shows you how brilliant the public is because they knew they were lies. it was amazing to watch. bill: despite days of polling that showed him trailing by 21 points in the closing days of that campaign. >> we started this campaign 10 months ago. we were 60 or 70 points down in the polls, yet what we have seen in poll after poll, state after stated. we have created the my men actual we need to win. chief coursbyron york, the chief
correspondent from the washington examiner. >> he has won all the way up to the west in nevada. now with this double-digit win in mitch again has won in the industrial midwest. it's a strong total so far. bill: if that's take away, number one, 2-a and 2-b have to be rubio and kasich with lot on the line tuesday. >tuesday. >> john kasich said i have to do well in my home state of ohio. there is no doubt john kasich has to winnow high oh next
tuesday. a similar situation for marco rubio. two-thirds place and two fourth place finishes last night. everything for rubio is here in florida. he's adding that only to victories in minnesota and puerto rico. bill: ted cruz won in iowa. >> he has won 7 times to trump's 15. while he's far behind, he's the only person in a position to challenge trump. when we change to winner-take-all primaries next tuesday he can be in a position to rack up to delegates if he
finds a place to win. bill: the theme for the evening was voters were concerned about trade. >> trade was an issue in both of the primaries. majorities in both parties told exit pollsters that they believe these huge trade deals cost american jobs. he talked about ford building a plant in mexico. but it really connected in michigan. bernie sanders did much the same thing, opposing the trade deals that secretary clinton supported in the past. that probably sets both of them you have pretty well for the coming race in ohio. bill: the rustbelt strategy put
the rust belt strategy to the test. >> trump has to win in ohio and florida, then he's in a very, very strong position. bill: on the road there in florida. heather: bernie sanders anti-trade and anti-wall street message getting traction with voters in michigan. now the camp is looking to build on that momentum. mike, how surprised was the sanders campaign by the big win in michigan? reporter: they were clearly surprised. they felt like bernie sanders had done a good job of cutting into hillary clinton's massive lead. bernie sanders rallied his
supporters early in the evening here in miami. sanders hammered clinton in michigan saying bad trade deals wiped out jobs in the midwest. late last night with sanders leading in michigan, he spoke to reporters about the race. >> what i mean is the bernie sanders campaign the people's revolution that we are talking about, the political revolution that we are talking about is strong in every part of the country, and frankly we believe that our strong jettest areas are d our strongest areas are yet to happen. we'll do well in the west coast and other parts of this country. reporter: sanders said in the south where hillary clinton had a huge edge is gone. heather: i would like to be a
fly on the wall of clinton's campaign headquarters. what are they taking away from the latest contests. reporter: hoyle ar reporter: hillary has work to do to rally her supporters. she has tried to shift folk to us taking on republicans. a general election-type message. but she must compete in the upcoming contests. >> you are here tonight and you are going to do everything you can in this next week, along with people in florida, illinois, missouri, north carolina who are going to the polls. i hope you make your voice and your vote count, too. reporter: clinton continues piling up delegates with that
win in mitc -- in michigan and . bill: 1994, reagan democrat. this was the area that had a lot of interest. trump talked about these voters but so, too, has ted cruz. ted cruz is talking about wing over reagan democrats. trump easily in mccoke county, almost 50% in michigan. so overall takes michigan. then he connects with mississippi in the deep south. trump in the state of mississippi. now you have michigan in the rust belt and mississippi in the deep south. a couple week he go when trump did this number in the state of
massachusetts, almost 50% with mississippi a close second place. trump wins michigan, mississippi. in the northeast he's starting to show how he can be a candidate for the entire country. next tuesday we have got florida. it's winner take all. so a simple victory will give you 99 delegates. speak of delegate, that's the game, remember. louisiana night after four different contests here is what we have. trump picked up 71, cruz 56. rubio shut out last night and kasich picks up 17. delegate count total and this is where we are. you need 1,237 to get that
nomination. quickly back to ohio. i want to make a point when we watched this press conference on behalf of donald trump. this is franklin county, ohio where john kasich lives. trump mentioned paul o'neill, former major league baseball player for the new york yankee. played for the cincinnati reds. he was born and group franklin county. he also mentioned jack nicklaus last night. guess where nicklaus was born and group? franklin county. trump has a stream of consciousness. i suggest if you look deeper he has intent with everything he does. heather: marco rubio lacking to the sunshine state first after falling short in last night's primaries.
>> here we are. it always come down to florida, and it will again this year not once but twice. >> is it just a matter of time for rubio or can he turn it around with a big win on his home turf. bill: there is a poll that shows john kasich is showing life in his hope state. heather: senator ted cruz continuing to make the case that this has become a two-man race. can he stop the trump train? >> nationwide there are 65-70% of republicans who recognize donald trump is not the best candidate to go head-to-head with hillary. if we nominate donald trump, we lose. the wonderment of nature. the detail on this surface book is amazing. with the tiger image, the saliva coming off and you got this turning.
it added this other level of clean to it. it just kinda like wiped everything clean. my teeth are glowing. they are so white. i actually really like the two steps. everytime i use this together it felt like leaving the dentist's office. crest hd, 6x cleaning, 6x whitening. i would switch to crest hd over what i was using before.
wthat you can book on our apps to make sure your little animal, enjoys her first trip to the kingdom. expedia, technology connecting you to what matters. heather: crews responding to a natural gas explosion in seattle. an entire block evacuated. officers are combing through the rubble searching for victims. they say it happened early this morning while crews were on the site. 9 firefighters suffered minor injuries in the explosion. >> i need your help. i believe with all my heart that the winner of the florida primary next tuesday will be the
nominee of the republican party. so you are given an incredible task. you are given an incredible task a week from now. i need your help, i need your vote. bill: that was rubio last night. his alamo will be tuesday. jonah, you are in naples, florida. saturday he had a terrible day. sunday you get a bounce back in puerto rico. but last night was a shutout. zero delegates. is there a simple explanation as to what has happened to his campaign over the past 14 days? >> no. i hate the cliche' about the perfect storm? but there are a bunch of factors of what people are calling a marco lapse.
where his campaign collapses. one of them is i think that the mitt romney push for fact tall voting caused a lot of people to figure if i'm voting anti-trump i might as well vote marco or cruz. i think it' a grotesque double standard, but trump gets away with a lot of gutter, nasty, vicious stuff, anybody who replies tit for tat is held to a double standard. by getting down in the nud i think marco rubio paid a price with a lot of people. bill: what would explain that double standard? >> i think it's partly -- we put this huge premium on authenticity. i think donald trump, one thing he comes across to a lot of people, a lot of people think
this is the authentic donald trump. when he does the gutter stuff and ridiculous boasting and bragging and lying, people think it's fine because that's donald trump. when marco rubio breaks tariffs, people think he's just a politician doing what he has to do. bill: in florida my sense is trump has the lead there. does rubio have a legitimate shot on tuesday? >> i think he's got a shot. i talked to a lot of people down here. it's hard to tease out the hope analysis. trump does much worse in closed primaries. florida is a closed primary. marco rubio is leading in the early polling.
it's down in single digits. we'll see if this barrage i keep hearing about, i have seen none of it in naples, perhaps this barrage you keep hearing about the anti-trump commercials plus the pro-rubio stuff. if they can take 4 or 5 points off trump's lead, rubio has a shot of make it. bill: this is a national poll. trump 30, cruz 27, kasich 22 and rubio in fourth place at 20. there is another option and that's to explore a unity ticket with ted cruz. what would that entail. >> i have been pushing this for more than a year.
the appeal of it for a lot of conservatives is ted cruz basically locked down the true conservative reaganite lane, and marco rubio has got the establishment acceptable to the donors lane. have much like the reagan-bush ticket in 1980 which was a unity ticket. if those two guys join forces it's a good signal of young latin ohs and it would provide a unified front against donald trump which i did not anticipate would be necessary when i first started writing about this. at this point it would have to be cruz-rubio. where rubio would stay in or drop out and sign on to be cruz's running-mate. bill: that's a lot of ifs. in michigan rubio lost
independents and conservatives. he got 3% from those who tell it like it is. those numbers are paltry. jonah, we'll talk to you throughout the week. jonah goldberg. thanks, live in naples. good to see you. heather: an american tourist stabbed to death in israel. we'll have the very latest. bill: ted cruz won in idaho, but trump still racking up the victories. >> he didn't do so well tonight. there is only one person who did well tonight, donald trump. i will tell you. so ... with creative new business incentives, and the lowest taxes in decades,
when they thought they should westart saving for retirement.le then we asked some older people when they actually did start saving. this gap between when we should start saving and when we actually do is one of the reasons why too many of us aren't prepared for retirement. just start as early as you can. it's going to pay off in the future. if we all start saving a little more today, we'll all be better prepared tomorrow. prudential. bring your challenges.
bill: tuesday is marco rubio's alamo and the same can be said for john kasich in ohio. kasich taking third in michigan behind ted cruz. >> we are pleased about what happened and when you think of where we have come from single digits to where people said how is he going to do, to where we are in all likelihood going to finish in second place over 20%. bill: today kasich goes to illinois to campaign in the first of the winner take all contests and his home state and florida. heather: another american tourist has been killed in a
stabbing spree by a palestinian. the vice president joe biden singing the praises of the american victim identified as west point good yacht taylor force. he was getting his mba. >> my condolences to the victims yesterday in the attack. let me say in no uncertain terms, the united states of america condemns these acts and condemns the failure to condemn these acts. heather: john huddy joins us live from jerusalem. was taylor force targeted because it's an america? >> reporter: it don't appear so.
12 others were wounded in this stabbing rampage. there are is some video that came out, dramatic footage. you can see the attacker returning away during a foot chase and he turned and goes back and stabs somebody sitting in their car, presumably unaware. then this attacker was shot and killed. it happened -- we have been talking about this, not far from where vice president biden was meeting with former israeli president shimon peres. '. it also happened in a community outside tel aviv and southeast jerusalem and today there have been three more attacks. it's becoming hard to even keep up with the number of attacks. this is after six months of violence basically daily attacks
in israel and the west bank targeting israeli soldiers, security forces. there ve been a number of attacks on civilians in israeli settlements. the new year's day attack. and a lot of these attacks have been carried out by young palestinians. others 15, 16 years old. heather: it's becoming the norm, unfortunately. bill: last night donald trump making the case that he's the one and only one that can unite the republican party. >> i'm a unifier. i unify. you look at all the things i built all over the world. i get along with people. bill: but can he privilege the party together? fair and balanced debate on that. fair panel coming up. plus there is this.
"hey cortana, find my katydid video." oh! this is so good. if you're trying to teach a kid about a proboscis. just sketch it on the screen. i don't have a touch screen on my mac, i'm jealous of that. you put a big bug in a kids hands and change their world view. ♪ bill: senator ted cruz notching a win in idaho in the race for the nomination. you can see he had a double-digit lead over second place donald trump. dan springer is live in boise, idaho, with more. dan, why such a comfortable victory there for cruz? what was moving there? reporter: well, i'll tell you, bill, what we saw last night of a coalescing anti-trump vote, that propelled ted cruz to easy victory, far easier than anybody thought. they're still counting some votes but with 97% of the
precincts reporting, cruz hat 45% of the vote. trump trailed in second place, at 28%. cruz was favorite of late deciders. he ended up live winning by 12%. a lot of people told us they voted for cruz because he had best chance of stopping donald trump. that is the case cruz has been trying to make. >> what we're seeing is republicans coalescing, republicans coming together. people of, many were supporting other candidates, good, honorable decent people but are coming together to say now is the time to unite. if we're divided donald trump ends up the nominee. if donald trump is the nominee, hillary clinton becomes the president. the way to stop that is stand united. reporter: donald trump never campaigned here. he never had a ground game here. apparently it hurt him. bill? bill: you know, there was some campaigning in idaho but not a
great deal. but what do you finding what happened there in marco rubio? reporter: well, cruz was here over the weekend. rubio was here over the weekend. a lot of people thought he was going to do pretty well. rubio was polling in the low 20s. he didn't even get that. he was clearly the loser yesterday. he did not make the 20% threshold to get some delegates and that really hurt him here. rubio did campaign, as i said. 32 delegates were up for grabs. it will be split between cruz and trump. it was a closed republican primary. that also helped cruz in the end. bill? bill: dan springer there. in boise, idaho, this morning. thank you, dan. 34 minutes past the hour. heather: donald trump making a general election pivot in a big way. did you hear about this? after notching three major victories last night, watch. >> i think it is time to onefy. we have something special going on in the republican party and
unfortunately the people in the party, they call them the elites or call them whatever they call them, but those are the people that don't respect it yet. in 100 years what is happening now to the republican party has never happened before. and the people in the party, whether you call them establishment or not. heather: alon cames, host of "the alan colmes show," a fox news contributor, and brad blakeman, form der deputy assistant to president george w. bush join us to talk more about this. thanks for joining us. >> good morning. heather: i will start with you, alan. you got the trump wines, trump steaks, trump water and now you have party unity. are you buying what he is selling? >> by the way the steaks they served last night were not trump steaks after all. party unity, how will he take back things he said about mexicans, latinos, women, bush, romney, he will all of a sudden pivot and unite those people?
maybe he will unite the warring factions of white supremacists but i don't think unite people spent last number of months he is insulting. that is how he gotten where he has gotten by insulting people. heather: yeah. and i think you actually just insulted a lot of trump followers by calling them white supremacists. >> i didn't say all trump followers are white supremacists. i didn't say that. what i said was he has got white supremacist support but i'm not in any way, shape or form calling them white supremacists. that's not what i said. i want to be very clear about that. heather: thank you for clarifying that. brad, why do you think he came out last night he wants to unify the party and he can and he will? >> because he thinks he will be nominee. he had a good night last night but next week will be telling. if he has continued success in his second home state of florida, then i think he's right to set the tone now. it is never too early to unite, to reach out to others but, it
is going to be a little hard lift for trump because of his rhetoric. he is going to have to take it down a little bit. he will accept the fact he will not win everybody over, that's okay. heather: yeah. >> but next tuesday he is still in a position of leadership, then he is likely to get the nomination. so he should be starting now to try and mend the fences and take the rhetoric down a little bit. i think he is going to do just fine. heather: but there is another debate coming up so anything could happen there. >> sure. heather: not only he is having to pivot with his own words, he is up against, i mean, some groups with some deep pockets. they are spending money in florida to get people to vote basically for anyone but him. alan, have you ever seen anything like this before? >> not quite. but dan springer just pointed out he is losing in late deciders, people who are deciding late. he is also down among republicans from 37% to 34%. it is possible, based on data we now have, trump has hit a wall.
if there is in fact coalescing around other candidates or one in particular he really does stand to lose at convention time. heather: brad, say it happens that what you were just discussing, trump wins ohio, he wins florida. looks like that he is going to get the nomination. is this a responsibility of someone within the party to step forward, possibly begin stepping forward now, and call for unity as well? >> no. i think we have to let this play out at least until next week. next week will be very telling because we have two candidates whose home states are pivotal states, not only for the primary but for the general election. if kasich can't win ohio, rubio can't win florida they're out and it becomes a two-man race. donald trump was able to almost break that 50% barrier when, alan talks about he has a ceiling he is crashing through the ceilings, alan, he is doing better with more in the field. how will that look after next tuesday if in fact he is stays
on this trajectory of winning? >> his support is down. his support is down from 37 to 34% among republicans. not anywhere near a 50% threshold among people in his own party. depends -- >> that will change. that will change. heather: we have to go. i want to know if anyone would bet against him at this point? thank you both for joining us alan, brad, appreciate it. bill: checking markets right now, trading for nine minutes on the big board. there is data to consider, folks. europe may cut rates again this week. we'll know more tomorrow on that. dow off 109 points yesterday. s&p down 22. nasdaq dropped 59. so far we're up, 48 points to the positive side. we'll keep eye on the markets throughout the show here inside of "america's newsroom." heather: ted cruz not easing up on his argument he is the one, the only one who can stop donald trump. >> at this point there are two only two candidates have a
plausible path to 1237, that is donald trump and me. both of us have over 300 delegates. he has 80 more than i do. everyone else is way, way below us. heather: we will pose the question to former texas governor rick perry plus is this. >> give me all your money, man. >> i don't -- >> now! i mean now. >> all right. >> do it easy way or do this hard way. >> all i to the -- bill: masked man heading up a cab driver at gunpoint, broad daylight. one thing this criminal did not see coming. it was all caught on tape. >> i need wallet and floor, i need it now if you don't want to die.n >> okay. 3 minutes, 3 minutes, killing 99.99% of odor causing bacteria. for a cleaner, fresher, brighter denture every day.
at safelite,oh nonow how busy your life can be. this mom didn't have time to worry about a cracked windshield. so she scheduled at safelite.com and with safelite's exclusive "on my way text" she knew exactly when i'd be there. so she didn't miss a single shot. (cheering crowd) i replaced her windshield... giving her more time for what matters most... how'd ya do? we won! nice! that's another safelite advantage. thank you so much! (team sing) ♪safelite repair, safelite replace.♪ ♪ >> there is only one campaign that has beaten donald trump repeatedly and that can and will beat donald trump in this nomination. >> ted cruz is interesting
because he is always, i mean he is always saying i'm the only one that can beat donald trump. take a look. he never beats me. meaning he rarely beats me. the fact we're going to do well. bill: so, trump and cruz. cruz says he is the only one to beat trump, the only alternative. here is your delegate count this morning. trump, 458, cruz, 359. former texas governor rick perry, once a candidate for the nomination, 2012, 2016. ted cruz supporter, life in his hometown of austin, texas. >> thank you very much. bill: what did last night teach you, governor? >> i get a charge out of donald trump. he says no one's ever beat me, which means they rarely beat me. but, anyway, the consistency or lack of consistency out of donald trump is always gives me a charge.
listen this, is still an open process. it is down to two people. i think everyone recognizes that as it's donald trump and ted cruz and the question for americans is, do you want consistent conservative as your president? and i've yet to see the consistency in donald trump. and the person who is best quipped to really turn washington on its ear, americans are angry. you're seeing response of people who are supporting donald trump. i understand that and i respect them. the question for them i think, who do you think is really best equipped to do what you want to do which is reduce the size of government, get government out of your life. put a real conservative on the supreme court with the nominee to take scalia's place? senator cruz clearly is that individual who has been consistent. bill: if you're down to two, that means people will have to
make a choice real soon. >> yeah, they are. and florida -- bill: do you see donald trump winning you over? >> listen, i'm going to be for the republican nominee whenever that occurs. i think we're a long way from that happening. whoever is going to be able to get to that magic number, and i'm not sure that's going to happen. so there's always this outside possibility of the brokered convention as well. and listen, that is pure democracy right there. you go in, have your vote. have the people that have gone through the process and they will select the nominee for us. so i think we're a long way from -- i don't think donald trump wants to be mano y mano with ted cruz. when it gets down to those two individuals straight up where you're going for, somebody will get above 50%, ted cruz is going to win that time after time. bill: you may be right. the calendar shifts away from favorability for cruz.
we'll see how that plays out. you said something very interesting. that you will support the republican nominee. if cruz does not win, you will support donald trump, right? >> absolutely. listen -- bill: if that is the case then, think about republican establishment, right? think about all the folks in washington, d.c. both cruz and trump sell themselves as outsiders. so who does the establishment pick if the choice is trump or cruz? >> >> well i think senator cruz, you're hearing that time after time, when you have lindsey graham, when you have others ha have been pretty critical of senator cruz in the past when they look at it, the difference here between donald trump and ted cruz, i'm going to go with ted cruz because at least we know we're getting a consistent conservative who will put a true conservative, strict constitutionalist on the united states supreme court. we'll work to devolve power out
of washington, d.c. actually knows what the tenth amendment says and means. i'm not sure whether donald trump even knows what the tenth amendment is, much less would he devolve power out of washington, d.c. and someone that would stand up for our veterans. i work with a group called, keep the promise to the vets. we're working really hard to bring these veterans issues to bear. making sure we have someone who will support our military, will support our veterans and that's ted cruz. and i'm very comfortable with that. bill: if you think about rubio, conventional wisdom, right, governor? if he loses florida it's over. kasich said the same if he doesn't win ohio. but if trump takes both and cruz is shut out of those winner-take-all states, does he, he now faces a significant challenge for that nomination. would you agree on that? >> well, what i agree on it is down to a two-person race. i think that is what we'll see
come out of this. at that particular point in time can either one trump, or cruz, get to the magic number, and i think that's going to be the real question here. if they don't, july gets to be a very, very interesting month as we go to cleveland and make that decision who will be our nominee. bill: up until early february only 9% of the republican tv ads were anti-trump. this past week it went to 41%. and you -- 47%. you still got the result. give you final word to reflect on that. >> obviously there is a lot of game to be played yet and i think trying to say that last night was indicator what is going to happen going forward, just is, super tuesday, ted cruz had a fabulous night. and, still a lot of ball game to be played out there. so it will be an interesting process. bill: governor, thank you for your time. rick perry live in austin. good luck at fort hood. i know you have a significant ceremony there. we wish you the best.
thank you, governor. >> thank you. heather: still to come, a bizarre story that begins in idaho and ends at the white house. it all centers around this man accused of shooting a minister outside of his church. we'll explain. bill: also we remember fondly former first lady nancy reagan. her memorial service, the planning is now set for the rest of this week. as we do that, here's the former first lady, laura bush, reflecting on nancy reagan. >> how very, very devoted she was to ronald reagan, to her husband and to our country. but i think they really had a special relationship that was very obvious when you watched them, for those years. this clean was like, pow!
it added this other level of clean to it. it just kinda like wiped everything clean. my teeth are glowing. they are so white. i actually really like the two steps. everytime i use this together it felt like leaving the dentist's office. crest hd, 6x cleaning, 6x whitening. i would switch to crest hd over what i was using before. my school could be bad.ing fast. could be a blast. can't find a single thing to wear. will they be looking at my hair? won't be the same without you bro.
bill: got breaking news. word out of baghdad, iraqi intelligence officials saying u.s. special forces have captured the head of the islamic state group's chemical weapons unit. don't have a name, don't have location. one line according to the associated press. if true, if this plays out, that would be a small victory there. we'll let you know what happens on that headline as we move forward. heather: the public getting a chance to say good-bye to former first lady nancy reagan. beginning this afternoon
mrs. reagan will be lying in repose at the reagan presidential library in california. the former first lady will be buried there on friday, next to her husband, president ronald reagan. adam housley is reporting live for us from the reagan library. adam, tell us about today's events. reporter: yeah, heather, you touched on it, today is the day the public will get their chance to begin a process saying good-bye to the former first lady. in fact it really already has begun. even though her body hasn't yet arrived. if you come up to the presidential drive simi valley, the sign has been adored with flowers, wreaths, cards, momentos, they left things to honor the former first lady. as for the schedule today, basically family arrives at local time in west los angeles. there will be a small service. not long after that the casket will leave around head here. about 45 minute drive or some there is a private family service. public visittation begins around
1:00. nancery reagan has been integral planning this. has for number of years. last appearance was at gravesite of her husband last year on anniversary of his death, very solemn moment for her. she will be buried in the spot right next to him. when you have a chance to talk with those who helped her plan it, they say she has been very, very involved in this. take a listen. >> mrs. reagan wasn't matley involved who the guests were, who the pallbearers are, people reading during the program. everything down to the flowers and so we're just following her orders right now to make sure she has the final of her. reporter: current first lady is here. former first lady is here, friday as other guests like angelica houston and mr. t. back to you in new york. heather: adam housley live for us. bill: bernie sanders clinches michigan. he was way behind in pre-election polling. a win out of left field you could say. what does that mean for the democratic race for the
nomination. donald trump winning several states last night. he won three. will home state advantage stop him from running away with that nomination. >> you know, we're all familiar with march madness. and now the home court advantage is coming north. and next week we are going to win the state of ohio and it will be. >>
bill: michigan delivering a slam dunk in a critical upset. donald trump wins the delegate-rich state by double digits and bernie sanders squeaking to victory in what is a shocking defeat for hillary clinton. i'm bill hemmer, welcome to "america's newsroom." heather: trump inching ahead in the delegate count. his count iv 58. followed by rubio with 151 and
kasich with 54. >> i hope that the republicans will embrace it. don't forget we have democrats coming over. very importantly. we have independents coming over. and they haven't done that ever. probably ever. with all of these people coming over, we have something very, very special. heather: we have teak coverage for you. -- we have team coverage for you have. first let's go to peter doocy in new york. what resonated most with michigan. reporter: it's all about trade. trump's promises to make better trade deals to strengthen the economy resonated here. 45% of voters who think trade
cost american jobs backed trump. in mississippi, 54% of americans think too many jobs are being outsourced. evangelical christians and voters angry with the government, and trump doesn't think he's losing any support as a result of all those negative ads aimed at him. >> thank you very much. this was an amazing evening. i don't think i have ever had so many horrible, horrible things said about me in one week. $38 million worth of horrible lies. but that's okay. it shows you how brilliant the public is because they knew they were lies. reporter: late deciders did not go for trump. cruz did manage to win in idaho
very easily. he stopped trump from sweeping all four contests yesterday. heather: michigan mayhem or sanders shocker. how did bernie manage this big upset? > reporter: he had a lot of help from 81% of young voters and 70% of independents who went for sanders. he thinks the groups backing him is a very good sign for his campaign moving forward. >> the bernie sanders campaign, the revolution. people's revolution that we are talking about, the political revolution we are talking about is strong in every part of the country. and frankly we believe that our strongest areas are yet to happen. they will do very, very well in the west coast and on the part of this country.
reporter: hillary clinton has been telling voters it's time to rally so she can turn her attention to republican opponents but that's not what voting democrats wanted to do. bill:
everybody talking about next super duper tuesday 2. steven hayes, good morning to you. no sleep, no need, right? quinnipiac last hour. new polling in ohio and florida, trump lead marco rubio 45-22 in florida. that is a big number. >> that's a stunner. if that's true, it's very bad news for the rubio campaign. there are other polls with a spread not quite that big. there was a monmouth poll
showing he was leading among the people who had voted. but if this poll is accurate it's trump. bill: in ohio kasich trails by 6 points. in the quinnipiac poll. it was 31-26 trump
from the 23rd of february. are the issues the same in mississippi and ohio and florida? >> to a certain extent the trump issues are national issues. he does particularly well in pocket of economic difficult which, hard times. but at same time his broader message about washington and the frustration with washington and the sense he's speak for people who think their government hasn't been rinsing to them for years, that's a national issue. that's why he has done well in
different geographic regions of the country. bernie sanders. he was down 21 point in an nbc-"wall street journal" poll. you have a specialist cad who has won in a significant american rust belt state. what does that say? >> it's an extraordinary development just because of the way you framed it. he calls himself a democratic socialist who has given speeches proclaiming himself as a democratic socialist and explaining why he's a democratic socialist. you have sanders make that argument and winning a state. but that's a state that's favorable to bernie sanders and bernie sanders kind of demographically it's not that different than iowa. and i think if you look at where this is going, it make hillary clinton's road a lot longer. bill: steve, i want you to
look -- i tried to find five counties where trump has outperformed his margin. i'm trying to find some sort of commonality to tie these voters together. in alabama, this is dallas county. almost 60% of the vote in dallas county. selma, alabama, place of the civil rights movement, 1960s. georgia, here is what i found. this atkinson county, largely rural. 66% of the vote in atkinson county. not as many votes as you find in dallas county and not as many you find in horry county and myrtle beach. trump got 0% of the vote in horry county.
i'll show you two. what those three counties have in common i can't tell you. i can suggest something here. cannon, virginia. this is coal country. this county that borders with rhode island. bristol county, 55%. there are some community in bristol county that went much higher. this is textile mills, this is loss of jobs. can you tie these five together and give us a thread for what these voters are telling their politicians? >> certainly as i mentioned earlier. trump has been doing particularly well in areas, county, regions where there has been economic hard times. economic difficulty. if you look at where trump has succeeded in those numbers. he's blowing people out at that point.
at that rate in counties like that. what they have in common is difficult economic times. you may have textile mills and people who have been out of work for an extended amount of time who think they government isn't listening and the game is rigged to borrow a phrase from bernie sanders. those are the kind of people who are most attracted to donald trump. they are very frustrated at what's been happening in washington. bill: i will always remember local, massachusetts and why that happened. and worcester, massachusetts and why that happened. >> they have gone to non-traditional places where campaigns weren't going in 2012 and 2008 and they deserve credit for that. bill: steven hayes, check him out tonight with bret. heather: a suspecting in the
shooting of a pastor in idaho arrested thousands of miles away in washington, d.c. kyle odom was nabbed after tossing items over the white house fence last night. what do we know about the suspect? >> we know that odom was a former marine and iraq war vet. he had no previous arrest record but he did have a history of mental illness. that illness appears to have played a role in his shooting of the pastor in idaho days after he had given the invocation at a ted cruz rally. odom said the pastor was a martian who had ruined his life. yesterday he showed up outside the white house.
>> the information i have is apparently he flew from boy seee airport to washington. he was apprehended outside the white house by the secret service. initial reports indicate he had thrown self items over the fence of the white house. initial information is those included flash drives along with other unknown items. reporter: the secret service said those flash drives contained manifestos that included the names of many leaders. we don't know whether odom had ever visited that church or sought counseling from them.
nor is it known whether he went to the rally to seek out cruz or washington to seek out the president. bill: iran thumbing its nose at the world, reportedly test firing ballistic missiles. why a top u.s. commander says tehran will not change it behavior anytime soon. heather: an explosion levels a residential neighborhood. bill: marco rubio's home state of florida. his alamo, is that his last stand tuesday. >> we are a nation of under dogs, and i'll fight as long and hard as i have to to insure hillary clinton is not president and a conservative is in the white house in 2016. my mom loves giving me advice. she even gives me advice...
...about my toothpaste and mouthwash. but she's a dentist so...i kind of have to listen. she said "jen, go pro with crest pro-health advanced." advance to healthier gums... ...and stronger teeth from day one. using crest toothpaste and mouthwash makes my... ...whole mouth feel awesome. and my teeth are stronger too. crest-pro health advanced... ...is superior to colgate total... ...in these 5 areas dentists check. this check up? so good. go pro with crest pro-health advanced. mom's right...again!
am i seeing double? no ma'am. our at&t 'buy one get one free' makes it easier for your staff to send appointment reminders to your customers... ...and share promotions on social media? you know it! now i'm seeing dollar signs. you should probably get your eyes checked. good one babe. optometry humor. right now get up to $650 in credits to help you switch to at&t. >> it's been a tough night for him. but he's going to make his own decision. >> he became very hostile. he would have been better off had he kept the original pitter patter going. but this didn't work. bill: donald trump talking about marco rubio in florida. senator rubio came up empty on
the delegate count as well. former dnc communications director working alongsided the clinton team. gentlemen, good day to both of you. winners, losers and everything else. tony, your winners as of now are whom? >> no doubt donald trump had a great night taking these contests by storm after a week of bad news for donald trump. a bad debate performance in michigan. even when he won in states like kentucky and louisiana he did so with much narrower margins than the polls indicated. the other big winner, and this is the upset of the night, maybe it entire cycle. bernie sanders. when he has won in new hampshire. democrats said that's his neighboring state. michigan is the microcosm of the
country. large african-american vote, large working class vote. hillary clinton was leading by 21 points in the national average of polls there. he upset her there because he connects on the economic populist income inequality message that she does not. >> trump and sanders, you are winners. go. >> obviously the big winner on the republican side last night was donald trump. let me say who the big loser was on the republican side. marco rubio is in this column, but i would say mitt romney. mitt romney bet his entire political for tune and credibility on trying to take out donald trump. he did robocalls for the candidates, he did a speech in you've thank you. i think the republican
establishment is in a tailspin. bill: you jumped ahead in the categories. listen, i addressed tony's point about sanders winning in michigan. >> sanders lost mississippi 83-16. he had a small win in michigan. we'll give him credit for that. we never believed the public polls. if the public believed the public polls hoik would have campaigned somewhere else. here is where things stand. she won more delegates last night. he has to win 60% of all the reeve major delegates. bill: tony, who are your losers? >> absolutely agree.
the stench of fail stairs overwhelming rubio's campaign. he at one point was the frontrunner in many people respect. he had a national strategy where he wouldn't have to win a state until march 15. that bang fired terribly wrong and he will suffer that consequence. u not deny and brad i'll suggest this because i have seen it on the republican side and i have seen it on your side, too. you cannot deny what the will of the grass root voter is telling you. voters like you saw in michigan are obviously pointing out that she has some sincere flaws. look at her honest and trustworthy numbers. people who care about honesty, 80% for sanders, on people think, 54%.
>> so the only states that matter to you are the ones she loses. where has she shown the ability beyond the south to win big? >> she 0 won nevada. >> she has won all over the country. the mathematical loser was bernie sanders. you cannot win -- you can't win the nomination unless you win the majority of delegates. >> and you have got it rigged. bill: wish we had more time. thanks, fellas. heather: the iran nuclear deal. it's under fire as tehran launches long-range missiles with a dire warning aimed at an american ally. bill: which economic plan resonates with voters?
steve forbes joins us with his views. >> people in michigan, illinois and ohio are working longer hours. worried to death about if the future of their kids. if you take multiple medications, a dry mouth can be a common side effect. that's why there's biotene. it comes in oral rinse, spray or gel, so there's moisturizing relief for everyone. biotene, for people who suffer from a dry mouth.
joins us now. iran signs the nuclear deal and it's pretty clear they are not going to keep up their end of the bargain. >> they are certainly not. these particular tests violated a u.n. resolution other than the nuclear deal. the iranians are sophisticated about how they are doing all of this. essentially these tests yesterday and today, timed to coincide with vice president biden's visit to israel, another insult. they do two things. there have to be elections in iran to return moderate reformers. this is the revolutionary guards and hardliners showing everybody who is in charge. elections not withstanding, the people who hold the guns hold the power. the other thing they are doing is they are enjoying it, they are rubbing it into our faces, they are rubbing it into
president obama's and secretary carey's faces. this terribly flawed nuclear deal. the benefits we get if we get them are straight ahead out over the long term. right now even if president obama decided to abrogate that bad deal and resurrect sanctions against iran it wouldn't work. iran has been flooded with european and global corporations signing contracts right and left. the iranians are very sophisticated. they even dangled the carrot of a huge aircraft buy from beauing to get american business on side. so the president and the secretary of state have painted us into a difficult place. heather: iran snubbed their nose at us in october, and fired that
surface to surface long range ballistic missile. necessity seized 10 sailors amongst other things. how do we react? >> sometimes in the real world there is no good answer. this is so bad there is no good answer. you raised a very important point. sometimes a history, a relatively small event will have huge reverberations. when you see those sailors and then eventually let them go the next day and secretary kerry thanks iran for how they handled the situation, that was decisive. the iranians at that point, the hardliners knew that they, that president obama is not going respond. meanwhile, as you observed. iran is on a rampage in syria, in yemen, in iraq. heather: and getting cozy with russia.
>> i hate to say this about my country, but we lost this one. bill: 28 past now. america's economic future on the line in the race for the white house. who makes the best case? presidential candidate steve forbes will be with us next. heather: a tornado rips through a community and destroys homes.♪ >> i don't know what we are going to do. ♪jake reese, "day to feel alive"♪
incredible bladder prthat lets from always diyou move like you mean it now comes with an incredible promise. the always discreet double your money back guarantee. always discreet is for bladder leaks and it's drier than poise. try it. we're so confident you'll love it, we'll give you double your money back if you don't. incredible bladder protection. double your money back guarantee. that's always discreet. bill: interesting scene, miami, florida. ted cruz is on the scene. moments ago carly fiorina came on stage. >> it's a great privilege and pleasure to stand on the stage today.
thank you. you know, i ran for the presidency because i think it's time to take our country back. because i think we need real reform. because we have too much economic and too much political power concentrated in the hands of too few people. and i ran because we need a real constitutional conservative serving in the white house. i have to tell you last tuesday my husband frank and i live in virginia where we met and married over 30 years ago. we live near our daughter, son-in-law and two grand daughters. last tuesday we had a primary. i walked into the ballot box and i saw my own name on the ballot. it was kind of a thrill. but then i checked the box for ted cruz and i'm here to tell
you why. you know, after we lost the 2012 election the republican establishment decided it knew exactly what we needed to do to win the next one. they decided we needed comprehensive immigration reform. we needed to not rock the boat too much. let's go along to get along with a government that's more incompetent and corrupt. and for heavens sake, don't talk about the social issues. but there is one thing that the republican establishment didn't count on. in the state of texas, against all odds, and against all the predictions of the pundits. the state of texas elected a senator named ted cruz.
and you know? ted cruz has always been a constitutional conservative. he is a fearless fighter and reformer and he didn't much care whether he got invited to the cocktail parties in d.c. we know ted cruz is a fearless constitutional conservative because he has fought for our liberties over and over again. my dad was a constitutional conservative, an appellate judge on the 9th circuit coast appeals. i know having watched my dad what it takes to fight against the tide. and ted cruz has stood up and fought for our right to bear arms. he has fought -- he has fought for our religious liberty.
he has fought for your sovereignty. and he has won over and over and over. he has won. we know ted cruz is a leader and a reformer. he's willing to take on the status quo in washington, d.c., whether it's replacing the irs or finally fixing the veterans administration so our veterans get the care that they deserve. or finally figuring our immigration problems. you know, i can tell you from personal experience, in order to lead, you must challenge the status question. and when you challenge the status question, guess what?
you do more than ruffle feathers. you make enemies. it's part of it. it's the price of leadership. people say all the time we are all known by the company we keep. ted cruz should be known, is proud to be known by the enemies he has made in the d.c. heart belt. you know, there are some people in our party saying, donald trump wouldn't be so bad. i mean ... [booing] maybe he's a deal maker, we can make deals with him. here's the thing. donald trump and hillary clinton are two side of the same coin.
they are not going to reform the system. they are the system. hillary clinton has made millions of dollars selling access and influence from the inside and donald trump has made billions of dollars buying people like hillary clinton. they are the system. they will not reform it. so when the establishment says ted cruz i too conservative, he's too much of a fighter, he won't get along. i say you go, ted. [chanting "usa"] >> now, you know there are other
people in our party who actually are kind of horrified by donald trump. i'm one of them. but here is the thing. we are not going to beat donald trump by having leaders in our party tsk-tsk over our voters. we'll have to beat donald trump at the ballot box. the only guy who can beat donald trump is ted cruz. you know, tip o'neill once said all politics are local. actually all politics are personal. people vote based on their own lives, their own despairs, their own hopes, and their own dreams. we need a real conservative who will provide real conservative solutions in their own lives. that's the only way we'll beat donald trump and hillary clinton and ted is the man to do it.
let me just close by saying this. there are big differences between progressies and conservatives and we need to remember those differences as you head to the ballot box on tuesday. we as conservatives know no one of us is any better than any other one of us. each of us is gifted by god and we want to live a life of meaning and purpose and we know our policies will lift people up regardless of their circumstance. progressives believe some from smarter and others and smarter and others so it's okay for some to decide and choose for others. that's not who we are. my fellow republicans, you have an important job on tuesday. and i say to you, it is time. it is time to take our party
back. [cheers and applause] >> it i type to take our government back. it's time to take our country back, and so it is time now to unite behinded the one man who can beat donald trump, who can beat hillary clinton, who can beat the d.c. cartel. it's time to unite behind ted cruz. the next president of the united states. bill: we are watching the realignment happen right before our eyes. carly fiorina. this was not expected. steve forbes, two-time presidential candidate himself. author of the new book "reviving america." is this a capital "e" for
establishment or a small e *. >> there is no political establishment anymore. all you have are party officials who get their salaries from donors. that's it. they don't have the clout they did in the old days of the boss. who would have predicted the race would turn out to be between ted cruz and donald trump. what cruz now has to do, he's got the opportunity. he has to drop the lawyerly attitude and go for real substance starting with the flat tax. he can't beat trump just by raising his negatives. he has to put something positive on the table. bill: miami, florida ... >> it's a message that brings independents together and a message that brings reagan democrats together. we know our country is off track.
but we also understand the principles, the values that we have 0 get back to to bring our cub triback. i believe this next election will come down to three key issues. jobs, freedom, and security. let's start with jobs. let me talk for a minute to all the single moms who are working two or three part-time jobs. who have had your hours forcibly reduced to 28-29 hours a week because obamacare kicks in at 30 hours a week. let me talk to the truck drivers and mechanics and electricians and plumbers. all the men and women with calluses on your hands. who have seen your wages stagnating year after year after year. cost of living keeps going up.
but your wages don't seem to keep pace. let me talk to all the young people. coming out of school with student loans up to your eyeballs. scared, am i going to get a job? what kind of future will i have? you know, the media tells us this is as good as it gets. let me tell you, that is an absolute lie. it's easy to talk about making america great again. you can even print that on a baseball cap. but the real question is, do you understand the principles and values that made america great in the first place?
if i'm elected president, if and when, we will repeal every word of obamacare. we'll pass common sense healthcare reform that makes health insurance personal and portable and affordable and keeps government from getting in between us and our doctors. and we'll pass a simple flat tax. for every american can fill out his or her taxes on a postcard. and when we do that, we should abolish the irs.
[cheers and applause] >> we are going to rein in the epa and the cfpd and the alphabet soup of federal agency that descended on small businesses, killing jobs all across this country. that's the thing. the heart of our economy. it isn't in washington, d.c. it isn't in new york city. the heart of our economy is in small businesses all across this country. you want to kill jobs, do what we have been doing the last 7 years. hammer the living daylights out of small businesses. you want to unleash jobs? lift the boot of the federal government off the back of the next of small business.
d off the back of the next of small business. and no issue captures the device between washington and the working people more than the issue of immigration. bill: ted cruz making a closing argument before super duper tuesday next tuesday. i want to recall what he based his campaign on in the beginning, winning reagan democrats in places like michigan. winning evangelicals in the deep south. that hasn't happened. >> donald trump scrambled everybody's game plan. what has to happen now is ted cruz has to take some of those themes and put them up front. trump said trade and immigration have hurt job creation. cruz has to lead with the flat tax. here is how we have to reform the federal reserve, healthcare
reform. he has to relate it to real people. he hasn't gotten it yet. he has to lead with the flat tax. it's the only way he will win in the northeast and the midwest with his background. bill: you saw carly fiorina out there. if you are within the party, you have to make a choice. it's either trump or cruz. how does that go? >> i think you will see people follow lyndsey graham of south carolina where he said he's going with cruz, even though he doesn't like the guy. i think you will see a lot of consolidation around cruz. but cruz has to get on his game otherwise trump's theme of immigration and trade will trump constitutionality. bill: reviving america is your new book. thank you, steve. sorry it was short. >> breaking news. heather: ed rollins was campaign
director for president reagans reelection and joe richy was campaign manager for howard dean. i want to get your response. we saw carly fiorina slowing her support behind ted cruz. how significant is that and what does that mean to you? >> i like carly have much but i don't think it makes a difference. it is down to a trump and a cruz race. cruz is the substantive guy. he has to make his argument why his policies are more substantive and can move the country forward. trump can throe rocks against the window. what the victory showed last night, 59% of the republican voters are very angry with the republicans in congress and the republicans in washington. he is basically the outsider. cruz has to make the charge. i'm an outsider too and i'm
going to change it and i know how it works. heather: one of the things carly fiorina says, cruz is the one man that can beat donald trump and the d.c. cartel. it's clear they are trying to come across as the outsider as well. >> ed is right. 59% want somebody from the outside. it's actually big per numbers from that in terms of their support of trump and cruz. 81% of those people picked trump or cruz last night which means kasich and rubio have to be in single digits for people who want -- who feel the party has let them down. heather: we have to go to a break but stick around. we'll be right back. bill: on that breaking news, regarding the rnc and hillary clinton details on what's happening in court next. relook.

bill report rnc filing a lawsuit to obtain hillary clinton's records at the state department. with me now, sean spicer. chief strategist at the rnc. what is this all about? >> this morning we sphield two lawsuits. one is both because the freedom of information act we filed a request for has not been followed since last year. there are two suits. one between senior aides of hillary clinton. and four senior aides that have been never released, including cheryl mills, patrick murphy, bryan pagliano and the other one
after hillary between her senior aides. trying to seek any coordination that may or may not have occurred to cover up any wrongdoing. bill: are these emails or more than that? >> any electronic communication. bill: what would be the difference between what you are asking for and what the department of justice and potentially f.b.i. are dealing with as well? >> we don't know. that's the problem. we filed a freedom of information act under the law with what is supposedly the most transparent administration in history southern we have been stalled and told nothing. part of the problem is nobody has provided public information available under the current law. so we are going to federal court seeking these communications between secretary clinton and her senior aides while she was secretary of state as well as the second lawsuit steeks communication between senior officials at the state
department and clinton campaign and other outside end tes outsi. there is a likelihood some of those emails exist. bill: the suggestion in that answer is the government is stalling. >> we have seen through the release of secretary clinton's emails, there is classified information. we were told there was nothing classified. with each new email dump of the state department we plern more that there was classified information. we have a right under the law to see these emails and these communications and that's what we are going to court to get. bill: it's breaking news. sean spicer with the rnc. more on that coming up throughout the day. heather: more breaking news in the fight against isis you have next.
