With just four days to go until Super Tuesday and the Massachusetts primary, there's a lot to talk to about, including Thursday's Republican slam-fest that pushed Donald Trump back on his heels. We'll also talk about the new WBUR poll that shows Trump with deep support among Massachusetts Republicans and a close race among the Democrats, with Hillary Clinton slightly ahead of Bernie Sanders.

Guest

Anthony Brooks, WBUR’s senior political reporter. He tweets @anthonygbrooks.

  • "A new WBUR poll of the Massachusetts Democratic primary holds little favorable news for Bernie Sanders. It shows Hillary Clinton with a narrow edge: 49 percent to 44 percent. This is near the poll’s margin of error, and another recent poll showed the race tied. But even if Sanders pulls out a difficult and narrow win in Massachusetts, it is not a good sign, and his climb to the nomination will become difficult indeed."

  • "The Florida senator delivered what was easily his best debate performance yet Thursday night, hammering frontrunner Donald Trump repeatedly on his character, his business record, and his claims to being a conservative. It was the performance he needed. The question now is whether it will matter at all."
