county of delegates is up for grabs in just ten days. >> i've taken more questions from reporters than any human being maybe that has ever lived. >> reporter: in a late night news conference, trump says it's time for the republican field to thin. >> marco rubio had a very very bad night and personally i'd call for him to drop out of the race. >> reporter: marco rubio brushed off that suggestion. democrat bernie sanders was hoping to pick up some momentum on super saturday entering the day with half the delegates of hillary clinton. he won the kansas and nebraska caucuses, but clinton had a resounding win in louisiana and has her sights set on michigan. >> we have to win this election. and we all know, we all know the stakes keep getting higher. and the rhetoric we're hearing from the other side keeps sinking lower. >> reporter: sunday more delegates on the line, republicans have a primary in puerto rico and democrats cauc

balance of combination of increases in the subsidy that the system gets in the various jurisdictions and from fare cards purchases and fares as well. so those are the things going forwardoff the next ten years. and we're already starting to see some implement tags before as of today, metro will no longer accept these old paper fare cards. i've got 40 cents left on this, so i will cash it in and buy me like that. derrick ward, new s. coming up, thieves that ran into cars and left a mess. and peyton manning expected to announce his retirement. the new report claiming the star quarterback is ready to leave the nfl.

>> the presidential race is proving it's all about the delegates and not how many states you necessarily win. >> joining us now to break it down, moderator of "meet the press" chuck todd. and that is an interesting thing. it really comes down to delegates and at this point you start to really to narrow the field. >> and ted cruz, they split four states last night, but ted cruz won the night in delegates. so ted cruz won saturday. he got a little bit closer to the mark. and think the question is this because of trump's bad debate performance on thursday, or what mitt romney has done, or were these four states more tailormade for cruz. i want to see what happens in michigan and mississippi. those are more open primaries. democrats an independents can vote. trump has done well in those types of primaries before. if we see a narrowing now, if we see him either bare
even losing, we'll see something happening. >> and talk about bernie sanders. we know that he took kansas and nebraska, but not so much about the states. so really when we break todown e numbers, what sdw he have to do to really be on the path to the nomination? >> so we had trhree contests on the democratic side, bernie sanders won two but hillary clinton won more delegates. she cleaned up in louisiana. in kansas and nebraska, much smaller delegate hauls and hillary clinton did better than sanders in louisiana. so we are now at a point where sanders has to win more than 60% of the remaining delegates in order to win this nomination. to do that, you have to win some 70% of the raw vote. so explain -- i mean only vermont has he done that. and that's his home state. so we're getting to the point where
viable -- two reasons for sanders to stay on. keep her from moving too far to the center on ideology, keep pushing her on progressive issues. and second to stay in because you never know what the fbi might come up with. and that's the other aspect. >> all that is great, but let's talk about the real buzz that is in this building. >> i did have a sitting president onset. >> i thought you were going to bring him in here. >> there he is. "house of cards." >> one sitting president on, yeah. and he has an interesting -- he talks about a fictitious potential debate between track underwood and donald trump and he will tell you who he thinks can win that debate. underwood/trump. >> what if they teamed up. >> and speaking of flexibility, nobody more flexible than frank underwood. he will cut a deal with anybody.
