done something that almost nobody thought could be done. and i'm very proud of it. >> reporter: trump won the majority of conservative republicans and moderates as well and ride ago wave of voters who are fed up with washington. in several states he scored double-digit wins and is looking forward to facing hillary clinton. >> i watched hillary's speech and she is talking about wages have been poor and everything is poor and everything is doing badly. she has been there for so long. i mean, if she hasn't straightened it out by now, she is not going to straighten it out in the next four years. it's just going to become worse and worse. >> reporter: trump's wins was a blow to cruz but he won texas and oklahoma. >> as long as the field is divided, donald trump's path to the nomination remains more likely, and that would be a disaster for republicans. >> reporter: cruz has the money to keep going, but for marco
disappointing night. despite his win in minnesota, his first victory in this campaign, some have called on him to get out in this race. >> if i have to campaign in 50 states and 50 territories i will do that eschew i'm the nominee and not him. one more point. no one is coming to us and say get out so we can rally around donald trump. >> reporter: trump remains at odds with republican party leaders and in his victory remarks, trump said he would try to get along with house speaker paul ryan but if ryan didn't play ball, it would be a long night. trump's republican rivals have dim prospects of ever catching up. major garrett, cbs news, palm beach, florida. >> trump now has 315 of the 1,237 needed to win. on the democratic side, hillary clinton is widening the gap between herself and bernie sanders.
states like texas, georgia, and virginia and while the vermont senator won his home state, clinton came out on top in neighboring massachusetts. all told, she won 7 of super tuesday's 11 races. nancy cordes is with the clinton campaign in miami. >> reporter: after a slow start to this election season, hillary clinton is starting to pull away. this wasn't a knockout punch. there are still many more races to come. but she has now established a lead in the delegate count and it will be very, very difficult for bernie sanders to catch up. >> what a super tuesday! >> reporter: hillary clinton swept six southern states, thanks, in large part, to huge support from african-americans, who make up more than a quarter of the voters in the seven southern states that voted yesterday. hillary clinton had at least 75%
>> i believe what we need in america today is more love and kindness. >> reporter: with tuesday's victories in hand, the clinton campaign is seemingly turning an eye towards the general election and a potential showdown with donald trump. >> it's clear tonight that the states in this election have never been higher and the rhetoric we are hearing on the other side has never been lower. >> reporter: but clinton's democratic opponent bernie sanders says he is not going anywhere. >> by the end of tonight, we are going to win many hundreds of delegates. >> reporter: sanders did pick up a few states of his own on super tuesday. his home state of vermont and minnesota and colorado. and so he has little reason to drop out. he raised $42 million last month, so he has got plenty of money and there are six more states voting over the next
is delegate rich and it has 142 delegates. nancy cordes, cbs news, miami. with 35 states yet to vote, hillary clinton holds a nearly 3-1 edge over sanders in delegates. nearly half of her support comes from so-called super delegates who are free to support any candidate they wish. so where did clinton and trump draw their support from? anthony mason has a look at our exit polling data. >> reporter: with hillary clinton and donald trump having strong nights we wanted to look at the architecture of their strength. clinton won 88% of democratic voters for whom experience was the top issue. she won 8 out of 10 african-american voters and among women she took almost two-thirds and 65% and those who ranked the economy the top issue. donald trump won six states and here is a look where his
he won 63% of republicans who wanted an outsider and a majority of voters who ranked immigration as their top issue and he won 44% of voters who put change at top and he won 37% of conservatives, look among those who describe themselves very conservative, ted cruz had the highest numbers there. with hillary clinton's strong night, how would sanders voters feel if clinton was the nominee ultimately? they are split down the milled. 38% said they would be satisfied with clinton and 79% said they would not. a look at the republican side of things. among nontrump voters on super tuesday in the gop side, fully 74%, nearly three-quarters, told us they would not be satisfied with donald trump as their nominee. so a deep khasm in the republican party. coming up on "cbs this morning," we will wrap up the results of super tuesday and discuss the growing divide in the republican party.

[music] no, no, no, no, people are both soft and strong... yey! which is why our products are too. angel soft. as the road to the white house winds on, super tuesday might be remembered as the turning point. hillary clinton and donald trump made huge leaps toward their respective party's nominations. earlier, i spoke to cbs news political director and moderator of "face the nation" john dickerson about where the race is headed. all right, john, a big night for donald trump. very successful. give me a snapshot who -- where did he win and who did he win with and who is supporting him? >> i won with lower -- low income voters, higher income voters in some places.
all over the place, depending on the states, which is one of the things that republicans are trying to come to terms with here and certainly his opponents are trying to come to terms with it because ted cruz thought with evangelicals i'll be able to make inroads and he didn't. >> what can we expect moving forward? you can't deny his success tonight. will they coalesce on trump donald trump or double down on the resistance? >> there is a choice for republicans to make. do they start to move behind donald trump or do they have a resistance movement that has to snap into quick action because if he is going to be stopped, he has to denied the 1,237 delegates. the only way to do that is to start beating him up so badly on these contests that are coming up that he can't win and that then marco rubio or ted cruz becomes the person who can win these winner take all states and amass enough delegates and then goes to the convention and fights it out at the convention.
they have to fight fast and furiously. and some republicans may not be ready for that. also, because there are two alternatives now, john kasich making it a third and who knows if ben carson adding another, that splits the anti-trump votes and it's a messier conversation to have, it's messier in terms of the vote. you know, john kasich hadn't been in the race, marco rubio might have done well enough in v. to beat donald trump. so the presence of these candidates out there really does change the landscape of things. >> i'm wondering now, after super tuesday, can we look at this more than as a two-man race and the other man being ted cruz? >> you could, except marco rubio continues to be carried aloft by the hopes of the mainstream republicans who are incapable of coming to terms with the idea that donald trump would be the nominee of the party that they love. and so while the rubio path to
file path, very narrow that he must walk, it sustained or continues to exist because there are republicans who really hope that somehow they can use -- that he can do better and get to the convention and have a situation where it can be competitive and where somehow, through some perhaps even some magic, they can deny trump the nomination. so he did not -- he only got one win. that's not a great record. but because there is this real desire to beat donald trump, he is allowed to fight another day where another kind of candidate wouldn't be. >> let's talk about the democrats. hillary clinton did well, as expected. you know, bernie sanders maybe not terrible. but, you know, hillary clinton definitely is way ahead in the delegates. on the flip side, bernie sanders continues to raise money. so i'm wondering is he out of the race? can we write him off? or do you think he will live to fight another day? >> well, he won in enough states
he also also has a very strong message and people who are liking him and he has a lot of money so hard to written him off. the biggest problem to him than winning fewer states than hillary clinton and being behind in the delegate count, he still seems to be incapable of doing very well in the african-american community, has that is a part of the democratic coalition. you can't be a democratic nominee and not have that kind of vote. so it's one of the reasons why in future states, he'll have a tough time winning, but it also is a flaw in his candidacy if he is going to be the nominee for the party. >> john dickerson, moderator of very much. >> sure thing. analysis coming up on "cbs this schieffer about last night's results. earth. astronaut scott kelly has a warm homecoming after a record stay on the internet space station. mastering irresistibly smooth. the lindor truffle. created with passion... by the lindt master chocolatiers. a hard outer shell with a smooth center. luscious.... flowing...
