1:44 am
she was the presumed democratic nominee. now she's earned it. she had the scare in iowa. she took a huge hit in new hampshire. she's really come back now and tonight we see her sailing out of super tuesday with that strong lead that she's earned. >> and quoting the weekend. >> that's right. >> rick, we really saw from the exit polls two different pictures. what repubublicans wanted is someone more of an outsider. the democrats a are goi towarards political experience. what's going to happen when it comes down to november if it's down to the hillary and trump campaigns. >> you're seeing the divisions in the country play out in the way you'ree seeing races begin to settle. front-runners come at this with entirely different resumes and rationales speaking to different thoughts and passions of the votes. the fact one party seems close to nominating hillary clinton sort of the ultimate insider and the other party is closer than ever to nominating donald trump, the ultimate outsider tells you this is going to be an epic clash. wewe look for why is this race
1:45 am
this is no the a hard o to define if this is hillary clinton against donald trump, we know what the big forces are. the votes are speak to that right now. >> what did we learn about donald trump last night? rick mentioned he can appeal to the cracker barrel crowd as well as a whole foodscrowd. what did elearn about donald trump? >> look at those exit polls, he dominated in so many different groups. but the one group that really i just shocked me the most is evangelical voters. he emmed ted cruz out. it was close but he edged him out. this is someone ted cruz cald vulgar and profane but the thrice married gop front-runner wonn evangelical voters tonight. >> my moms says it is corinthians is acceptable. >> i was going to say to play the contrary argument, there is a redlag for trump tonight. marco rubio won a state. it's good for marco rubio b it was trump's worst performance in the state of minnesota. he finished third place there.
1:46 am
coming up, you have illinois coming up, ohio a big prize, the states coming up, perhaps there is a little bit of a silver lining. > he got like two net delegates out of minnesota. >> we're not talking about the delegates. >> but if it was for the hillary camp, who would the dems like to see? >> hear her campaign say it's totally excited to run against donald trump and take the example this week. kkk scuffle, the david de example. they want to see that front and center. i think you've started to see a little bit of it from hillary. >> we're going to continue to torture these guys. >> we're going to ask the team actually what they learned most from super tuesday that surprised them. stick with us. >> going to hang out for a

marco rubio may be smoke and not fire. i am shocked by the fact that he invested as much as he d did in states like texas in partrticular, also alabama and vermont and is going to walk away with a goose egg, a big old round number that is zero of delegates out of these states. this is an a level campaign. they know how it works and were stressing we're going to eat into cruz's lead. he was confident even talking about george stephanopoulos tonight. he's going to get delegates just about everywhere. >> what the doesn't resonate with voters? >> his attacks, the kind of childish. >> the small hands. > and spr tan and all that, that it back fired. it reduced had imin size literally as donald trump said that little marco rubio. he was reduced in the minds of vote ares. >> that means he didn't get 20% of the vote. >> that was the threshold. this was not a surprise and they didn't get it. >> one of the most surprising things that happened right before super tuesday when we
1:50 am
raised $42 million in february alone. that's more money than marco rubio raised in his entire campai. what's also surprising is that bernie sanders who likes 0 talk about billionaires but doesn't really like to talk about money was talking about it tonight at his campaign event. >> it doesn't get him any fuher. he had a lot of money that didn't help him in the end. >> he says he's going to go to the convention and going to california in june. that has a bounty of dels. he has the money to go there. >> we were watching you typing away during the abc coverage last night during primetime coverage. what shocked you as you were there working. > i got to tell you, one of the most fascinating things to me is the most important quality voters want to see in a candidat is the candidate shares their values. wherere doesonald trump fall in that? he ishe worst rated candidate in all the states last night and in fact from every state i think in the candidate that shares my values. so what is going on here? how can you win when the republicans don't think you share his values?
1:51 am
qualities that trump no pun intended, he brings change to washington and actually tells it like it is. those are his qualities. >> i was interest interested in one exit poll his proposal to ban noncitizen muslims from entering the country suppoed by 6% of republicans. >> no one talked about this till donald trump. it's like the republican partyty didn't know what they wanted till trump arrived and started talking out these things. to have two-thirds of them on the same page is remarkable. >> a lot of people were talking about chris christie. >> there was that look. we got a shot of it. trending on twitter. >> free chris christie. >> bored standing behind there or. >> what was the deal with that. >> the most unlikely allies. >> what is that look? >> i think it's just utter shock at what's h happeningven at this moment. >> in front of his eyes. >> we want to thank you guys. incredible political powerhouse.

returning to our top story, blowouwins for donald trump and hillary clinton. the front runners swept the south picking up a big share of delegates. bernie sanders won in four states. ted cruz clinched his home state and oklahoma. and after a week of firing off bruising insults at trumump, marco rubio picked up his first victory in minnesota. >> as fomarco rubio, he's holding a mpaign event today in michigan. rubio and the other repuicans are preparing for tomorrow's debate which will l take pla in detroit. >> the florida senator is expected to continue hammering aw at the front-runner donald trump of course, just as he did lastight in miami. abc's linsey davis was there. >> reporter: good morning, reena and kendis. marco rubio manages to get his first win. he's now 1 for 15. but you certainly couldn't tell tonight. he was energetic. he was upbeat. the crowd equally so. one of the first words out of
2:45 am
he called him a con artist. he said, look, state by state, the polls show that donald ump's numbers are going down and ours are going up. he said pundits want to call me an underdog. i'll accept that because we are a country of underdogs and we will win. evers very optimistilooking forward to the florida primary which is just two weeks away. 99 delegatest stake. a winner-take-all state. he says i know how to win in florida. interestingly the polls show donald trump is actually favored toin here. reena and kendis? >> that's the striking thing. if he loses on march 15t5th in florida, many are saying that they don't see how he can have a path to go forward. >> there was actually a very conservative influenceal group likely going to endorse ted cruz. how much of a blow coo that be to his campaign. there are people talking he could be put in for the next race for florida governor possibly. so there's already buzz about thatut how long can he stay

>> one of the things ricklein who we're going to have in one of the half hours was mentioning that it really was an awful night for marco rubio. for one thing, in texas, he might not have won a single delegate.. the same story possible in tennessee and oklahoma. they're still counting but if he didn't make that 20% threshold, he might not have picked up a single delegate in those states. that's really a big deal. >> exit polls showing what republicans want is someone with a fresh set of eyes more of an outsider, not a washington insider, someone who's been entrenched in the political system like marco rubio perhaps. >> in the meantime it, i should point out that the new york daily news, speaking about trump, the headline this m morning simply reads "make america migrate." clearly they're not a fan. they say the complete guide to escape america if trump should win. >> coming up, a celebrity photoshop controversy. >> plus, why britney spears says she just doesn't really care

now she's earned it. she had that scare in iowa. she took a huge hit in new hampshire. she's realally come ck now and tonight we see her sailing out of super tuesday with that strong lead that she's earned. >> and quoting the weekend. >> that's right. >> rick, we really saw from the exit polls two different pictures. what republicans wanted is someone more of an outsider. the democrats are going towards political experience. what's going to happen when it comes down to november if it's really dowown to hilry and the trump campaigns? >> you're seeing the divisions in the country play out in the way you're seeing races begin to settle. front-runners come at this with entirely different resumes and entirely different rationales speaking too differe thoughts and passions of the voters. the fact one party seems close to nominating hillary clinton sort of the ultimate insider and the other party is closer than ever to nominating donald trump, the ultimate outsider tells you this is going to be an epic clash. we always lookfor, why is this
3:15 am
>> i don't think this is going to be a hard one to define. if this is hillary clinton against donald trump, we know what the big forces are. the voters are speaking to that right now. >> what did we learn about donald trump last night? rick mentioned he can appeal to the cracker barrel crowd as well as the whole foods crowd. what did we learn about donald trump? >> look at those exit polls, he dominated in so many different groups. but the one group that really i -- it shocked my the most is evangelical voteters. he edged ted cruz out. it was close bute edged him out. this is someone ted cruz called vulgar and profane but the thrice married gop front-runner won evangelical voters tonight. >> by the way, my mom who does study the bible says it is corinthians is acceptable. >> i was going to say to play the contrary argument, there is a red flag for trump tonight. marco rubio won a statate. it's good for marco rubio but it was trump's worst performance in the state of minnesota. he finished third place there. with so many midwest states
3:16 am
coming up, ohio a big prize, those states coming up, perhaps there is a little bit of a silver lining. > he got like two net delegates out of minnesota. >> we're not talking about the delegates. >> but if it was for the hillary camp, who would the dems like to see run against that they cocompletely csh? which of the c candidatewould you think? > you heaher campaign say it's totally excited to run against donald trump. and take the example this week. kkk scuffle, the david duke example. they want to see that front and center. i thinyou've started to see a little bit of it from hillary. >> we're going to continue to torture these guys. >> we're going to be right back. we're going to ask the team actually what they learned most from super tuesday that surprised them. stick with us. >> going to hang out for a little bit?

learned that marco rubio may be smoke and not fire. i am shocked by the fact that he invested as much as he did in states like texas in particular, also alabama and vermont and is going to walk away with a goose egg, a big old round number that is zero of delegates out of these states. this is an a" level campaign. they know how it works and they were expressing we're going to eat into cruz's lead and rack up delegates everywhere. he was confident even talking about george stephanopoulos tonight. he's going to get delegates justst about everywhere. >> what doesn't resonate with voters are? >> his attacks, the kind of childish. >> the small hands. >> and spray tan and all that, that it back fired. it reduced him in size literally as donald trump said that little marco rubio. he was reduced in the minds of voters. and it may have backfired. >> that means he didn't get 20% of the vote. >> that was the threshold. this was not a surprise and they didn't get it. >> one of f the mosturprising things that happened right before super tuesday when we learned that bernie sanders raised $42 million in february alone. that's more money than marco

campaign. what's also surprising is that bernie sanders who likes to talk about billionaires but doesn't really like to talk about money was talking about it tonight at his campaign event. >> it doesn't get him any further. with jeb, he had a lot ofoney but didn't really help him in the end. >> he says he's going to go to the convention and going to california in june. that has a bounty of delegates. he has the money to go there. >> we were watching you typing away during the abc coverage last night during primetime coverage. wh shocked you as you were there feverishly wororking? > i got to tell you, one of the most fascinating things to me is the most important quality voters say they want to see in a candidate is that the candidate shares their values. where does donald trump fall in that? he is the worst rated candidate in all the states last night and in fact, in every state i think in the candidate an shares my values. so what is going on here? how can you win when the republicans don't think you share his values?

qualities tt trump, no pun intended, and that is brings change to washington and actually tells it like it is. those are his qualities. >> i was kind of interested in one exit poll his proposal to ban noncitizen muslims from entering the country supported by 6% of republicans. >> no one talked about this till donald trump. it's like the republican party didn't know what they wanted till trump arrived and started talking about these things. to have two-thirds of them on the same page is remarkable. >> one of the interesting things of the night was a lot of people were talking about chris christie. >> there was that look. we got a shot of it. trending on twitter. >> #free chris christie. >> bored standing behind there or -- >>hat was the deal with that? i find them the most unlikely allies. what happened to this romance? >> i think it't's just uer shock at what's happening even at this moment. >> in front of his eyes. >> we want to thank you guys. incredible political powerhouse. thank you for all you do for abc especially in the late night.
