Has the GOP Establishment lost all hope? If party insiders are pinning their hopes on Marco "Gang of Eight" Rubio and the prospect of an Open Convention -- what does that say about their current predicament? With guest Jennifer Kerns we review the impressive demographics of Trump's victory in South Carolina, noting he prevailed with Evangelical Christians over and above Ted Cruz. How to explain that? And if Rubio is going to start winning, where exactly is he going to do so? Which states? Plus, we survey the long-expected demise of the Jeb Bush campaign. After Trump's criticism of the Iraq War in the last debate, was Jeb's downfall related to a sudden GOP reckoning on Iraq? Or did Jeb merely lack an intuitive understanding of the American people? Out of touch? And who will end up endorsing whom as more candidates drop out? Meanwhile, we look at Hillary's narrow victory over Sanders in Nevada, and puzzle over her strange "barking" episode. Also, we offer patriotic above-timberline extreme skiing vignettes from a Colorado mountain family weekend. With music and listener calls.
