I James been dealt Boston Globe joining us this morning to talk a little bit more about tonight's upcoming event good morning nor'easter. Good morning. So we've got that we get a big debate coming up tonight and a lot of people are saying that this one could be as important as any. And especially for what we call the three man race. Do you think this could change the outlook of this race at all tonight's event. It. We legalize emphasis on these debates very few than they actually had easy or that impact clearly. That you can't share. Really did it impacted marker Libya that exchanges can. And Chris Christie who weren't huge victory here were Donald Trump is going to be a Republican nominee he is the presumptive nominee at this point. I'm in so you really see a lot of arrows sort of bring it down troop we think was the same time out of the arrows back and forth between. Crews and rubio as they try to sort out who will eventually take on Donald Trump a longer than those who fight and I understand the logic behind. Your creature rubio currency each other out. But the longer they do that bit more Donald Trump and she's sister right on top. It looked or at times and it cost to participate on Tuesday coax those. I mean you know it's kind of lose these are probably trying to figure out our trial it's because when these other candidates. I don't think that tonight's gonna make any difference for Donald Trump when I think it's gonna do is I think it's going to be a negative for take curse I think checkers gonna commend him. With guns blazing and I think that's gonna turn a lot of people off. They couldn't contain this narrative that's a unity created been doing lately which has been. Sea water and their ironic de Marco Rubio is earning your saying he never intended to run a negative campaign to keep a positive. IUE a huge hit what three weeks ago that he had guns blazing on everybody. Every direction ahead at the Iowa Caucuses. To memories are short here odd that the game has definitely changed I agree with you don't. Good luck to any easier tragic out Donald Trump an idiot tries. Every single one its sales. And what would you do Jim if you are James if you were advising Marco Rubio I mean how do you how do you play this how do you value it somehow make inroads on Trump's trump sort of. Hole like a man achieve key indicator it's on terms voters you can do is try to make inroads. Are those who are rarity against trot right that's what this dynamic has been set up. You do your locker room we are seeing it on the stump he does what got. You know 35%. Or people support Donald Trump that 65%. Support someone else or don't support him. Hey Pete you consolidate keep that 65%. The market this peculiar to nominate you and makes sense in theory but in reality Google or any staunch and supports legal or not we saw that in the data this week. He had over 40% support. And its second. And people begin to drop out he's got like every one to have a different candidate war. Dispute and Richard Leo post former army. People like you go to winners he will be to presumptive nominee he will pick up some of that sort workers after all. The other people who were supporting this group let's take Jeb Bush for example. We've done that either all good Marco Rubio because state where we're Jeb Bush rightly or portray her compete right and there's a logic they're split. Again we about the delegate count. And right now you're downtrend has 63%. Of adult you're heading into a major day on Tuesday were amassed. You know would it be that bad states ever for a good crew could only get harder from your cash and each state on Tuesday still new. Do their delegates proportionally so. Dictate the pit crews to induce some kids sexist argue that big yet altered didn't delicately here to share and burger king and. It seems like a loss to Australia who were just talking even if Cruz wins Texas. Jim and I both feel like it's not a matter do you agree. Yeah look I mean who we have. Donald Trump has a credibility problem within. The Republican property and Marco Rubio or see any problems should you know where you can look at and say he's gonna win that particular state. But Ted Cruz has a math problem and that problem is that it's only getting harder from here it's really hard receipt on Tuesday how he'd been. Gates who lead on the delegate count and enact immediate problems so again you were worried I have all this conversation about the debate. Watched it back and forth treat. Crude and rubio and eighty crews and trump that's where national campaign years or so he can achieve peace keeper away. And we're about to see them beating at the end of this campaign. I agree. Jason bell thanks very much for your insight appreciate. It.
