So, a big big Super Tuesday for Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. This thing is not over, but it is taking a definite and remarkable shape. A billionaire breaking all the rules and freaking out the Republican Party he’s looking to lead. A “political revolution” on the Democrats’ side riding right behind a deeply inside Democrat. Delegate counts piling up fast now, but no guarantee against more surprises. This hour On Point, the verdict of Super Tuesday, and American politics in a wild new place.

From Tom’s Reading List

The Wall Street Journal: Hillary Clinton Triumphs in Delegate-Rich Super Tuesday States — "Hillary Clinton won sweeping primary victories in Texas and throughout the South on Tuesday, a sign that the Democratic front-runner was vaulting to a commanding lead in the race for the presidential nomination—and leaving rival Bernie Sanders diminishing space to stage a comeback."

Washington Post:  The GOP has two weeks to take down Donald Trump — "The window for stopping Donald Trump closed almost completely Tuesday night, leaving the demoralized anti-Trump forces with two weeks and no agreed-upon strategy for denying the New York billionaire the Republican presidential nomination."

National Review: Keep Attacking Trump -- "Trump is in a dominant position, and the anti-Trump forces are now engaged in a rearguard struggle to pull him back from the cusp of the nomination and, most likely, get to a contested convention rather than nominate an alternative outright. There is no point in holding back now–the next two weeks are absolutely crucial."

This program aired on March 2, 2016.
