ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump told CBS's "Face the Nation" on Sunday (February 28) that the Republican Party "is not treating me right." "The Republican Party is not treating me right and they're not treating the people that I represent right," Trump said. "And I don't think it's fair the way that the establishment is treating Donald Trump, I'll be honest. I signed a pledge and I will, you know, abide by the pledge unless they default. But as far as I'm concerned, they're defaulting." Trump, 69, who has never held public office, has campaigned as a political outsider. He is riding a wave of voter anger at the slow economic recovery, illegal immigration and what he says is America's diminishing role in the world. Trump has unsettled mainstream Republicans by winning three straight nominating contests - in New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada. Polls show he is likely to win big in key primaries on Tuesday. Reuters/Ipsos polling data on Friday showed Trump ahead nationally in the Republican race with support at 44.2 percent, followed by Cruz at 20.7 percent and Rubio in third place at 14 percent.
