With only 13 days left until Super Tuesday, the latest California Field Poll shows Republican voters are focused on immigration issues, while Democrats are most concerned about health-care reform. The survey also puts Arizona Sen. John McCain out front. Poll director Mark DiCamillo discusses the latest numbers with Alex Chadwick.

Then Madeleine Brand talks to Ruben Navarette of the San Diego Union-Tribune about what the Republican candidates are saying about immigration and what that means in a state where 35 percent of the population is Hispanic.

Kaiser Family Foundation Vice President Larry Levitt talks about the Democrats' health-care plans. Each candidate is promising affordable and high-quality universal coverage.
