ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, who often describes his campaign as a "movement" said the elites want to work a deal with him. "The biggest names in the Republican party are calling behind their back, the media doesn't know, and they want to work a deal because they see what's happening folks," said Trump during rally in Bloomington, Illinois, Sunday (March 13). Despite criticism over recent protests, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said nobody has been injured at one of his rallies. Trump said if you go to a Bernie or Hillary rally and protest, "Oh you'll be in trouble. They'll lock you up for the rest of your life, they'll give you the electric chair." The real estate tycoon used a round of television appearances, Sunday, to beat back furious criticism from Republican rivals and Democrats alike that he was encouraging discord with divisive language disparaging Muslims and immigrants. During the rally in Illinois, the billionaire called up a supporter wearing a t-shirt that read 'Legal Immigrant for Trump' who told the crowd that Donald Trump does indeed support immigration. Trump, who has rallies scheduled on Sunday in Illinois, Ohio and Florida, hopes to beat both Gov. John Kasich and Marco Rubio, the U.S. senator from Florida, in their home states on Tuesday. A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Marist poll showed Trump leading Rubio 43 percent to 22 percent among likely primary voters in Florida. Trump lags Ohio's popular governor in that state, 33 percent to Kasich's 39 percent, the poll showed. The survey had a margin of error of 2.2 percentage points.
