If Nevada voters "feel the Bern," it signals that non-white voters, long considered Clinton supporters, are open to the maverick message. It's also central to tomorrow's Republican primary in South Carolina, where polls show Donald Trump as the frontrunner, despite his lack of evangelical Christian cred and a no-vote from the Pope himself. It's a state that predicted the GOP nominee every election but one in the past 35 years. We go to both states to take the temperature of southern evangelical voters and Latino Democrats.

Trump, the GOP and the rule of law Conservatives — and some Republicans — are criticizing the President for "the mess he made" in firing FBI Director James Comey. We hear about a potential successor, the possibility of "obstruction of justice" and the constitutional separation of powers.
