Cruz won two states on Super Tuesday, Rubio won one, and even Kasich almost won one—but the big winner of the night was the apparently unstoppable Donald Trump. Joan Walsh has more on the panic in the GOP establishment over Trump’s triumphs—she’s The Nation’s national affairs correspondent.

Plus: What Trump supporters really think. Sasha Abramsky interviewed a bunch of them; he reports regularly on politics for The Nation.

Also: Trump says he reviles Muslims and reveres veterans—but some vets have been speaking out in defense of the Muslims they know and work with. Laila Lalami has that story—she’s The Nation’s newest columnist.
