for the senator of vermont. i want to begin with a former ohio state senator. it is good morning, how are you? >> good morning. i am wonderful. >> i am great. congratulations to your candidate. bernie sanders. >> powerful. we are delighted that senator won in west virginia. thank you west virginia, 19 win, add democrats abroad, 20. we are going to keep ongoing, to the convention. we are going all the wear. >> going all the way. >> hillary clinton people on the panel, shaking their heads. >> i don't know y. >> you know which one i talk about. >> my dear best friend. >> still in first place.
what is the goal for the sanders' camp? >> first of all, the senator has been very clear, everybody should have the opportunity to have choices. he is going to stay in the race, until we see votes, i believe in the middle part of june. the goal is to continue to galvanize the voters, continue to energize. that is what he is doing. his goal is to win. that goal has not changed. the senator talked about how narrow the path, he will not deny. >> that he said it tonight. >> last night. he said it is an uphill climb. june 14th. what happens june 15th? >> hopefully, he is going in with the delegate math, him and the secretary neither one will
make it all the way. he has 1,400, she has a little over 1,700 delegate, if the super delegates want to win, it is very clear that senator bernie sanders is the strongest candidate to go head-to-head with donald trump. he has been consistent. and the poll says the same thing. in the battle ground state, in my great state of ohio. >> you know, lsz than 300 delegates between them. we will continue to eat into that, neither one of them will go to the convention with the necessarily pledge delegates, we will duke it out. >> listen to what the senator said earlier. >> with our victory tonight in west virginia, we have now won primaries and caucuses in 19
states. we are north there campaign to win the democratic nomination. >> he sounds confident. >> they should and they are, don. you know, arrogantly decided they weren't going to do commercials and try to ignore the primaries and jump to the general. then they had the pivot and back track on that they should be nervous. senator sanders is hot on the trail. no doubt about it. >> the chairman of the party nothing short of hillary clinton defeated 20 times by a 74
year-old socialist from vermont. >> he need not get in this fight. it is a family fight. that is what i say to the chairman of the republican party. >> a backhanded comment. >> we don't want his backhanded compliment. we don't. the bottom line, senator sanders is the best candidate. >> it is a legitimate point. he has a message that is resinating with voters, i have been one who supports hillary clinton, since day one, i said that he earned the right to stay
in the race as long as he so chooses. hillary clinton, and everybody who had no right, hypocritically to say, he has to get out by june 7th that is when she got out. we have been on the shows a lot. it is good for the party. >> it is good for the party, good for hillary, and good for bernie. by the way, i think bernie was red hot tonight. the best i have ever heard him. after donald trump took a couple of swipes at hillary. he said, we are in this all the way. fighting for every single voter. he said something, the energy and the enthusiasm are with bernie sanders. every time i hear all the math. how many delegate, how many votes, the math doesn't win elections alone. you need the energy and the enthusiasm, bernie has got it.
>> it is a red herring. >> we are going to take it to the convention. no question. >> it is a red herring, when the sanders campaign say that, jeff weaver said it consistently, nobody will have the majority of the delegates going into the convention. super delegates have never over turned the will of the people. barack obama did not have enough, super delegates put him over the top. mondale? clinton and carry, their opponents dropped out of race in the same position as john kerri. >> super delegates should adhere to the will upon of the people state by state. the fact that senator sanders has almost 46% of the pledge delegates, talk about the will
of the people. they need to take a page, the super delegates should follow the will of the people in their state, if that was happening, senator sanders would not be so far behind. >> it is fixed, it is rigged -- >> you are stuck with the system. >> one word for you, george mcgovern. you don't nominate somebody so far left you got killed in a national landslide. bernie sanders, the polls are probably not representative of what would happen in november. >> donald trump is not going to become president for a number of reasons.
you cannot have a president who has insulted latinos and mexicans. who has insulted muslims, who every day is insulting women in one way or another. who has insulted african americans in a very profound way. people sometimes forget that before mr. trump was running for president, he was one of the leaders of the so-called bertha
movement. that was a very ugly effort to dele jit myself t-- delejitimiz the presidency of the first african american president. >> well, talking about mr. trump in that manner since the race started. as far as, he was the first one to point out the bertha movement on the stump. and how mr. trump, to take away the legitimacy of barack obama. i don't think he is doing anything for the secretary, just pointing out the facts,
democratics do not play in favor of mr. trump when it comes to november. this is about turn-out. turn-out will be a big factor. >> i want to ask, she didn't bring up the bertha thing. won't bring up women, she will say the women card. she won't do that bernie sanders will. >> bernie sanders will. it is the kind of message that electifies the bernie sanders' audience. >> i think for bernie sanders it is a good card to play. clinton is playing with fire, she is trying now -- >> the argument earlier that

preston. is it too late now? >> listen, donald trump has a lot of money. is it too late for him to raise the necessary money from donors to equal the amount that hillary clinton has built up? yes, probably too late to get to that money. when you can write your own check, don. >> he moves into a different phase. >> i think it doesn't hurt him. the people who got him to this nominating process, he can change his possession a hundred times, they will still like him. i don't think he is disingenius. >> to identify the individuals who are going to go to their
networks, bring back 2700 every cycle. that is my background is campaigns. he is starting late. hillary clinton started two years ago. she started eight years ago. she has all the people for almost a decade now for her. there is no way. i don't think donald trump will willing to write the checks for the dealt a. >> i am a multi-billionaire. why give money to a billionaire? >> he raised d $20 million in donations already. you have to organize. >> he has an incredible amount of media, he doesn't need money -- one thing i find
surprising, is that he is not talking about the bernie sanders. bernie sanders, out-raised hillary clinton with small donors, why isn't mr. grass roots donald trump, at least talking about that? >> one person on the republican side who did it well was ben carson. he had a book tour, he took the time. he had the lead time, went in communities and cultivated that support. you can start. p.s., it is may, the election is in november.
>> the other infrastructure, the volunteer, the door knocking, a lot of that. that will be crucial, when you get down to the close states. the battleground states, ohio and pennsylvania, it is a four-point difference, one campaign, the difference -- how does it work. >> the rnc, the mat looks different from republicans in the past. they realize this is the donald trump supporters, that includes republicans, they learned their lesson the hard way with barack obam aexcellent digital apparat apparatus. >> i agree with you. hillary clinton, and the rnc are
light years ahead of where donald trump s getting a finance chair person last week. hillary clinton had staff in ohio, virginia, florida. $125 million worth, they are going on spanish radio. these things are happening, donald trump is just getting started. the thing we haven't talked about yet, that separated, no offense, separating barack obama from mitt romney with data. the democrats had data, and ted cruz took his ball and went home. >> that is one of the advantages of an incumbent. what happened was, the obama campaign took a $100 million
operation, with the advantages that they had, coordinating, and a million in perfecting it. if you remember during the summer of 2012, the romney campaign, we were essentially out of money. we spent so much in the primary, the obaa campaign moved into all the battle ground states and pounded us with millions in ads. we never recovered from it. that goes to my last point. there are few ads after labor day that make a difference. this is a crucial time. from here all the way through to labor day, in defining the contours of the debate. >> that said, there are big donors, saying they will stay out of this. $250 million gap, that is a big
not in a position to be able to fight back with a full arsenal. >> i think kevin, lob a comment back at you, record this as being a historical moment. donald trump thinks that he can win, i do believe he will write the check. i don't think anyone will come down to the idea, will he have a billion dollar campaign. will he have a $10 million campaign in florida, ohio, it will come down to, we pretend, wow, i mean, we are boiling it down. the rnc, and what came out of that report, rnc put in a 24-hour, seven-day a week operation nationwide. that did not exist before. i do think this is a problem.
nobody knows the trump voters. you need to identify those trump voters. >> here is the question. a million cash on hand -- don't answer now. what marco rubio now says about donald trump. i take pictures of sunrises. it's my job and it's also my passion. but with my back pain i couldn't sleep... so i couldn't get up in time. then i found aleve pm. aleve pm is the only one to combine a safe sleep aid plus the 12-hour strength of aleve... for pain relief that can last into the morning. and now... i'm back. aleve pm for a better am.
you want the job, talking about the advisors what is your -- >> i don't have many advisors, my wife. >> he would best serve, active surrogates that agree withim had. my differences with donald, my reservations about his campaign, and policy differences are well documented and remain. he would be best served to have people enthusiastic about what he stands for. >> temperament and views on foreign policy, on trade policy, and other things. would those reservations keep you, do they preclude you from endorsing him? >> i signed a pledge, that said i would support the republican
nominee. i continue to do that here is the situation that we are in it i don't want hillary clinton to be the president of the united states. i don't want her to win this election. i have well defined differences with the presumptive nominee of the republican party. like millions of republicans, trying to rectify that it i intend to live up to the pledge, the concerns that i have about policy, they remain, they are there. that doesn't mean that donald needs to change his position to get my support. i think he should be true to what he believes in, and continue to make his case. >> you once said that you didn't think it -- you can concerns about the fact about the nuclear codes being in the hands of an erratic con man. >> here is what i am not going to do over the next six months, taking shots at him.
he wasn't my first choice. i was running for president. he has earned the right to make his case to the american people. i am not going to sit here and level charges against him. i know what i said over the campaign. i stand by the things i said. i am not going to sit here now and become his chief critic over the next six months. m mr. -- >> mr. trump is going to meet the republican leaders. you are not saying the words, i support donald trump. >> this is an unusual election cycle. i don't know if there is a well established road map forward in terms of how to do that i think
public policy differences will remain between now and the election, i think it is smart that he is coming to d.c., meeting with the leaders of this party, and part of that process. we will see where they are. put out there, trying to get you to be his running mate efrlier, and reached out and polled, it seemed like a cruz/rubio ticket, they fault you. >> i don't know who put that out there. i talked to ted the day after the florida primary, he didn't say a word about vp or anything of that nature. i think it is an unfortunate story, fiorina worked hard, and
i think that story is largely inaccurate in terms of out reach to me. >> i wrote the story, they reached out, and came back to them, you are were interested. >> there were people out there, talking about it. but i spoke to ted personally. >> would it have worked? >> i don't think you win by doing those sorts of things, the bottom line is, whether we like it or not, donald heads able to tap into a sense of this country, that compounded by an economic melt down, eight years of barack obama's policy, left america feeling weaker in the world. that is the reality of what we face. i am not sure after a certain point in this campaign anything will stop them. >> you would never serve as his
vice president if he asked? >> so, no. he needs to appoint someone to his nominee. >> no f you are not interested? >> again, to be frank, i mean, we never had those conversations with anyone in his campaign. i am not saying anyone offered or suggested it to me. i would say that he would be better served by someone that supports his

. >> he is a politician that say cheap shot. i don't take everything, or anything they say for granted. vice president is a damn good job. you can do a lot with it. if you want to be president, it is a good place to be. i think he could very well, he may be playing a game. he wants people to come to him and say, save the party, unify the party, bring everybody today, little marco, you have to do this. >> 45 years old. he wants to be president one day. i think he would worry that the profile that donald trump has now, with constituencies would be toxic. he has been around politics enough to know, the approach, he
alluded to it in the interview. you try to get a demographic, try to appeal to a regional balance on the ticket, usually, when they try it, it doesn't work as well. you need to have someone that you know and trust. he doesn't know, and there is no level of trust. did turaise my hand at the wrong time? >> who would he pick? >> someone that he is close to. i think that short list, chris christie, jan brewer, someone like that. i think, that he knows better. >> a lot of republicans are mad at him. >> very limited universe here. >> who is he close to?
>> someone that will help him with national security, and understands loyalty, that are things that donald trump -- >> i think that one of the thing that is you saw that was interesting, the future of the republican party, many see it as the future of the republican party. rubio, hailey, they say no. i am not going to part of this. these people saying they weren't asked. each of the republican party, are your marco rubios, and nick haileys, you will see them sprint away from donald trump.
throttle on policy issues. trump said that another opponent's father was on the grassy knoll with lee harvey oswald. okay? >> so, when you make these attacks on people's fathers, on their being, those are beyond -- >> answer my question. someone, please. why do you vote for someone just because they happen to be -- >> i am a lot like margeret, when you run per president, it is a test of character. if you don't meet it, i won't support you. at the same time, this is where
party unity, i don't attack kaly, i disagree with her. >> i got to get to a break. >> not just talking about anyone who is running for any office. i not to know what you think, will come out with trump's meeting with the gop brass. there are hundreds of different allergens that come from pets, pollen and dust. just one claritin provides 24-hour relief of symptoms that can be triggered by over 200 allergens. yeah, over 200 allergens! with claritin, she's not focused on her allergy symptoms. she's focused on winning.

at it. has been eclipsed by the fight with donald trump and the republican party. remove that, we would be focused on the division in the democratic party. i do think, at some point bernie sanders and hillary clinton will negotiate a deal. he will get what he needs on the platform, he will be able to excite those kids to support her. >> this is a longer process. the process is what it is. who happens to be the popular
democrat in america right now, barack obama. he will have two roles, not only theuifier, he will be the pitbull, with birnie sanders, and elizabeth warren, will go straight at donald trump's chin. we will see if donald trump has a glass jaw or not. collective we, the first time they have said this it bern ie sanders, myself, a hillary clinton supporter. >> you made a point, it will be elizabeth warren, and all the prominent democrats, all the nominees, and hillary clinton. that includes the president, and the first lady. very powerful. >> enthusiasm is on bernie
sanders stands by it. you may not like hillary clinton, but you hate donald trump. that is the stew that rivals the juices of all the specific groups that were historic for barack obama, that hillary clinton needs to get over the line. >> you may not like donald trump, but you -- >> the presidential elections are enique, you are asking the voters and volunteers to invest in you. when the message is, we want to stop the other guy, it is not as moblizing. everybody sees the other side as the common opposition, what they expect to.
united front, everybody is wondering if there will be a does this make this meeting an important one? >> olive branches to one another. i they will come together. barack obama will be a powerful advo kalt, is it is not bernie sanders, or barack obama against donald trump. >> i don't think it will happen in one meeting. there are serious differences, i expect it to be a longer process.
important first step. >> paul ryan will fold. >> not about policy, tone and tenor of the campaign. >> thank you, donald trump, marching closer now to the republican presidential nomination, with sweeping victories. and trump, the presumptive nominee. sanders, still facing an uphill battle. >> take a look at the democrats. sanders will add to his total, so will hillary clinton. despite the win, it is still mathematically impossible for him to win the nomination out right. he is not dropping out of the
race. >> witho >> with our victory tonight in west virginia, we have won primaries and caucuses in 19 states. let me be as clear as i can be, we are in this campaign to win the democratic nomination. >> on the republican side, trump wins the west virginia primary, trump comes out to add to his lead. 1237 to clinch the party nomination outright. >> i guess the headline, what a difference a year can make.
hillary clinton won overwhelmly against barack obama, now, what happened? >> cnn town hall, she said she wanted to help people put out of business by the coal mines. it came out that she was going to shut down the coal mining industrial. it hurt her. voting for bernie sanders, he won limited partner every demograph demographic, a bit of a warning shot. hillary clinton has run as
president obama's third term. they do not want that those who don't want his policies continued went for bernie sanders. sglp we heard from this bernie sanders' speech, he has his eye firmly on donald trump. >> he said he is in it to win it out right, he is not just making a fight in the convention, when hillary clinton was winning. it is very difficult for him, with the way the result is. it is difficult for him to say he won the nomination. there is not enough pledge delegates to win, to do so out-right. could go into delegates would
put her over the top. those who have been loyal to hillary clinton would change their minds at this point in the game? >> it is an uphill battle. another loss for hillary clinton. listening to bernie standers, making it to the general election. >> donald trump is not going to become president for a number of reasons, and the major reason is, that american people
understand that we cannot have a president that insulted latinos and mexicans, who has insulted muslims, who has insulted john mccain and others -- okay. what is the game play here for sanders, does he think he can win. excite the base for hillary clinton? >> this was a mandate for him to continue moveing forward. 14,000 folks, a working class,
agreements, shipping jobs to mexico, and china. >> they are telling out of west virginia. bernie sanders, ahead 21% with white voters. does hillary clinton have a problem with white men? >> she does. it is one of the areas where she has to pivot away from angry white voters, she has to find a way to appeal to those folks. >> her base, in west virginia, is not secure either. sanders beat her among women as well. >> the argument that the trump campaign is making that is why he is marketable. he can get nontraditional white
democratic men to switch over for him. >> if the republican voters. a protest vote many were looking for against trump, it didn't happen. time to fall in line. >> i don't know if it is because of the republican electorate accepted it and moved on, or embracing it, the donald trump they are putting on now, tame and control led trump. the figures who have the john mccain's of the world. they need donald trump's voters. they will get in line. >> there is crippling among the establishment. mitt romney, both george bush,

he is now neck and neck with hillary. i would be very nervous. you can't focus the george washington university one had him within two points, that was an -- >> campaigning tonight, how she is rel -- >> the one between our side of democrats, for progress, for prosperity, fairness and opportunity. then the nominee on the republican side. that is why we have a big.
going to vote for donald trump. i would be nervous about that. >> i agree. a majority of those bernie sanders will vote for hillary clinton. a stark contrast between hillary hilton and donald trump. i think people will vote for donald trump. >> he said he narrowed it down. >> i would say i have in mind, five different people. i will announce whoever it will be at the convention.

clinton. both add to the delegate totals. clinton is about a hundred away from clinching her party's nomination. >> marco rubio said he has no interest in being donald trump's vice president. he is prepared to support the party's nominee. >> you raised -- >> i signed a pledge, that would support the republican nominee. i continue to do that here is the situation that we are in. i don't want hillary clinton to be president of the united states. i have well defined differences
with the presumptive nominee of the republican party. trying to reconcile those two things. with that, it doesn't mean that donald has to change positions to get my support. i think he should be true to what he believes in, and you once said that you had concerns about the fact that, the nuclear colds being in the hands of an erratic con man. >> here is what i am not going to do. sill there and -- sit there and take shots at him. he was not my first choice, he has i am not going to sit here
and level charges against him repeatedly. i stand by what i sads. he deserves the opportunity to go forward, his wonder, if you are standing by, saying that you have concern about putting them to the nuclear, how do you recognize that? he became the nominee. he is now the presumptive nominee. it doesn't change what i said in it past. i stand by those things, now, he is the i donrepublican nominee.

hello and welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm isha sesay in los angeles. >> and i'm john vause. you're watching cnn's special live coverage of the u.s. presidential election. 11:00 here on the west coast. donald trump and hillary clinton are nearing the finish line in their race to clinch their parties' presidential nominations. that's despite the fact that democrat bernie sanders has won net another primary, west virginia. >> sanders with a divisive 51%
of the vote. clinton with 36%. democrats are awarded proportion alley in west virginia. so even though sanders wins more, clinton still has a commanding lead. >> sanders has he's facing an uphill climb like mt. everest but staying optimistic and promising to stay in the race. >> let me be as clear as i can be. we are in this campaign to win the democratic nomination. [ cheers and applause ] >> and we are going to fight for every last vote in oregon, kentucky, california, the dakotas. >> well, a very good night for the only republican left in the race, donald trump. he wins in west virginia with 76% of the vote. ted cruz with 9%. john kasich with 6%. >> and in nebraska, trump the winner again, 61%.
cruz, 18%. kasich with 11%. trump adds to his delegate lead now with 1119. he needs 1,237 to clinch his party's nomination outright. >> well, one of the biggest challenges for republicans now is unifying the party. it will be a big focus thursday when trump sits down with congressional leaders on capitol hill. >> that includes house speaker paul ryan, who last week told cnn he was not ready to endorse donald trump. >> number one, i have a lot of respect for paul, and i think we're going to have a very good meeting, i hope. i think the big thing is in the history of the republican party, nobody has ever gotten more votes than i've gotten in the primaries. i mean i'm, you know, millions and millions of votes additional, and i guess by the time we finish, it's going to be many millions of votes ahead of anybody else, any other republican in the primaries. so that's a big thing. plus a lot of people -- a lot more people came out to vote this year in the primaries than they did four years ago or at any other time. so i think that's a great sign. we're doing very well in the
polls. >> donald trump there. let's bring in cnn politics reporter taul co-pen chi. tal, this was a very desee irv win for bernie sanders. >> the margin was not going to be close, i think, even in their estimation. you saw in fact none of the candidates were in west virginia last night -- tonight depending on where you are. in fact, hillary clinton wrapped up long before results started to come in so she would not be seen onstage or in interviews or anything when those results started to come in. they expected this to be a bad night for her. in fact, going forward through june, a lot of these contests that are coming up are not necessarily going to be favorable to her. even sew, the math indicates she will probably still lock up this nomination. but she's going to go in sort of limping and facing some losses and bad headlines instead of
sort of sailing in. i think they were prepared for it in the clinton camp tonight. >> tal, bernie sanders in his victory speech in salem, oregon, clearly triumphant. what was noteworthy was the fact that he's got his eye firmly on donald trump. >> yeah, it's interesting. on the one hand, he can sort of claim that he too is pivoting towards the general election, and we've heard him say for weeks and possibly months now on the trail that polls show him favorably against donald trump in head-to-head. it's become a talking point of his. at the same time, i think there's a recognition that the democratic party ultimately is going to have to go through donald trump regardless of who the nominee is, and he has said that at the end of the day, he will do whatever he can for his party and for the effort to stop donald trump. so it's probably a combination of both. it's going after the easiest boogeyman out there for democrats, and it's also signaling that he too can play the sort of general election
pivot game that hillary clinton has been playing. >> let's do the pivot. it's a new game. all the kids are doing it. tal, appreciate it. >> let's bring in dave jacobson, and john thomas. let's do the pivot. bernie is doing it in west virginia. again, another huge campaign rally for bernie sanders going after donald trump. listen to this. >> donald trump is not going to become president for a number of reasons. and the major reason is that the american people understand that we cannot have a president who has insulted latinos and mexicans, who has insulted muslims, who every day is
insulting women in one way or another, who has insulted veterans like john mccain and others, who has insulted african-americans in a very profound way. >> dave, finish the sentence for me. bernie sanders is not in the race because he can win. he's in the race because he can -- what? >> he's testing the waters to be a surrogate at this point for the clinton campaign come the general election. look, i think bernie sanders has two choices. he can either help donald trump become president by continuing to attack hillary clinton, or he can pivot, and he can help hillary clinton hurt donald trump by going on the attack. we saw that pivot tonight. if you look at the math, there's no feasible pathway forward for bernie sanders to clinch the nomination. hillary clinton is just 150 delegates short of locking this thing up. so i think he wants to go into the convention with a mandate to sort of glue his platform to the democratic convention platform and be part of this general election campaign that takes on donald trump because i think his
chief objective at the end of the day to make sure donald trump is not the next president. >> i think the reality was sanders had no option tonight but to make that general election case because as we move toward california where a lot of delegates are at stake, he has to convince democratic voters that this contest isn't over. so he has to convince them that, hey, he's pivoting to the general too. look, i'm winning. i'm at the big kids' table. he really had no choice tonight. >> one of the things everyone is trying to figure out is why was it such a blowout for hillary clinton in west virginia. that's really the big question. and did it have to do with comments she made earlier in march about coal miners and the coal industry. take a listen. let's remind our viewers of what was said. >> we're going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business. right, tim? and we're going to make it clear that we don't want to forget those people. those people labored in those mines for generations, losing their health, often losing their lives to turn on our lights and
power our factories. now we've got to move away from coal and all the other fossil fuels. but i don't want to move away from the people who did the best they could to produce the energy that we relied on. >> even when hillary clinton went to west virginia, though, a protest like this one saying hillary go home, because what people heard in that entire statement was just, we're going to get rid of coal jobs and we're going to close down coal mining for good. and i think we were actually talking the night that town hall happened, and when she said that, we talked about it. we said there's a campaign ad waiting to happen. >> it's a 180 from what she said eight years ago. she ran a campaign on a platform of clean coal and now she does a complete 180. i think fundamentally this narrative feeds into bernie sanders' message that he stands up for working class voters. that's one of her challenges. the bernie sanders coalition is making of independents and of young people. that's been one of the biggest difficulties for her in this cam pafn is trying to figure out how she appeals to those voters
whether it's trade or issues like the fumble with the coal comment. >> so, john, you're a strategist. how would you fix this problem? >> he's a republican, right. >> i know. but i want to see how good he is. >> before we fix the problem, let's talk about tonight is a huge night. in fact, tonight was the night we saw hillary clinton's achilles' heel exposed. that is her weakness on the economy. if you ask general election poll respondents on almost every issue, hillary beats trump except on the economy. and we saw that exposed today. how does she turn it around? it's really a hard argument. look, we can put a pleasant spin on it, but the reality is donald trump's created jobs that hillary hasn't. i don't think you can defend the indefensible in this case. >> i think it gives credence to adding some sort of bernie sanders like candidate to the ticket. at this point, she needs a candidate who can appeal to the working class, independent, young people base that bernie sanders has put together and consolidated for this election.
>> we look at some of the exit polls here. bernie sanders in west virginia. 23% ahead with men, and he was 21% ahead with white voters overall. so if you look at those numbers, just looking at west virginia, does hillary clinton right now have a white man problem? >> without a doubt, yeah. without a doubt she does. and on the flip side, donald trump has a surge of angry white men, and i think that's donald trump's argument of why he's going to beat hillary clinton because he's going to turn out white men regardless of their party affiliation. >> how does she win the white man over? >> i think part of it has got to be this working class argument. she's got to find a way to cut into that electorate and appeal to them. one of the ways she can do that is say donald trump is a risky bet. he says he's anti-trade but then he capitalizes on free trade and exploits workers by shipping production jobs overseas for trump clothing. he says he's against raising the minimum wage. then he says he's for it. he's anti-abortion. he's for abortion. he's all over the map. the reality is you don't know
where donald trump stands on any of these issues. >> the fundamental issue of what you just said in terms of how hillary takes on trump is you're presupposing the fight will be based on policy and that kind of detail which trump doesn't show any inclination for. >> and he won't. that attack works on somebody like carly fiorina who no one knew and just knew about laying off jobs at h.p. it doesn't work for donald trump who has a brand as a job kore r creator. >> this is like bob fisher, because bobby fisher did everything out of the ordinary. the russian went by the book. i think clinton is going by the book. i don't know how it's going to end, but bobby fisher one. i think that's going to be the big problem for hillary clinton. >> it is. this is not a textbook campaign. the regular rules haven't applied. >> let's turn to donald trump very quickly because this was the night when everyone said okay, let's find out if there's a protest vote. let's find out if the gop will rally around donald trump, and they did.
so if we look at this issue of unity in the party, john, is it time now for the paul ryans and the marco rubios and the ted cruzs to, you know, put the nastiness behind. >> they've taken their time to sulk. now they need to get on the trump train. the problem speaker ryan is going to have is the republican electorate is with donald trump now on an increasingly so. and paul ryan represents the republican party, and the party is with him. so paul ryan values his tenure as a speaker, he needs to get on, and i think he will. >> paul manafort, trump's aid, said earlier on today on another network that offensivetrump is chief now. is that a marker ahead of thursday? >> i'm sure reince priebus and i'm sure paul ryan are not thrilled about it, but he is making a truthful statement that at the top of the ticket, as far as the voters are concerned, that is the titular head of the party. >> i think it underscores the true disconnect between the grass tops and the grassroots. and the reality is donald trump
hasn't really had to build up the sort of fund-raising apparatus that he needs to raise a billion dollars for the election, and the grass tops are the ones who are going to raise that dough for hillary clinton. >> he can write a check. sell some ties. >> this was the week when the clinton campaign really started going after donald trump and his problem with women voters. it was a super pac ad. >> because nobody respects women more than donald trump. >> she came to my wedding. she ate like a pig and -- seriously, the wedding cake was -- it was like missing in action. obviously it's great outer beauty. we could say politically correct that look doesn't matter, but the look matters. like you wouldn't have your job if you weren't beautiful. >> so you treat women with respect? >> uh, i can't say that either. >> all right. good. >> again, let's take a quick look at the exit polls from west virginia and on the issue between men and women it breaks
even, 86%. if donald trump has a woman problem, he doesn't have a woman problem in west virginia. >> i think what we saw tonight is he does have a larger female problem, but for people who are concerned about the economy, it doesn't matter, male, female, they think donald trump is the right choice. >> i think this is an outlier tonight. i think if you look at the national poll rkz he's got 75% of women have an unfavorable view of donald trump. you can't win the white house without winning with women voters. in 2012, 53% of voters who turned out were women. they hold the keys to whoever becomes the next president. i think he's got to figure out a way to lower that 75% unfavorable number or else he's going to lose it race. >> gentlemen, always a pleasure. >> thanks so much for coming in. >> lots of fun. a short break here. when we come back, they're not really best friends. special election coverage. we'll have more on donald trump's meting this week with paul ryan. >> plus marco rubio sits down with cnn for his first interview since dropping out of the presidential race. >> it does seem like you're kind
of try tock walk this ground -- >> it's a very unique situation and i understand -- >> are you going to vote for him? ine revs] ♪ ♪ [engine revving] the all-new audi a4 is here. who don't have access thto basic banking,on people but that is changing. at temenos, with the microsoft cloud, we can enable a banker to travel to the most remote locations with nothing but a phone and a tablet. everywhere where there's a phone, you have a bank. now a person is able to start a business, and employ somebody for the first time. the microsoft cloud helped us to bring banking to ten million people in just two years.

you know, the right wing never gives up attacking me. have you noticed that? honest to goodness, i think they're really going to throw everything including the kitchen sink this time. i have a little message for them. they've done it for 25 years, and i'm still standing. >> well, hillary clinton didn't win in west virginia, but she's closer than ever to clinching the democratic nomination for president. >> bernie sanders came out on top in the mountain state, but since the democrats there award the delegates proportionally, clinton is now about 150 shy of majority of delegates to clinch the nomination. >> meanwhile donald trump is the only republican left standing, so he chalked up an easy victory in west virginia, winning by nearly 70 percentage points. >> trump also scored big in winner take all nebraska finishing ahead of ted cruz and john kasich.
>> joining us here is james lacy. >> welcome, gentlemen. >> coming to terms with it all. >> you go through the steps, we've got a big meeting coming up in washington between paul ryan and donald trump. been a lot of back and forth between these two. donald trump now seems to be trying to make nice with the house speaker paul ryan. this is what he said to "the wall street journal." >> i have a lot of respect for paul, and i think we're going to have a very good meeting. he's a very good man. he wants what's good for the party, and i think we're going to have positive results and i would love frankly for him to stay and be chairman. >> that was actually fox news. whatever. okay. james, how crucial is this meeting, though, between, you know, donald trump and paul ryan? how much is riding on these two men sorting out this issue and sorting it out quickly? >> yeah. i think that it's going to be sorted out, and i think it's
important that they have this visual of getting together. but the republican party's coming together while the democratic party is falling apart. you now have a situation where hillary clinton, who has lost 20 primary elections, is looking at losing again in oregon, and now having to use resources to spend in kentucky. we could have a situation where she comes to california, and she's looking at a very tight, perhaps 23 rd state loss. i'm reminded of what hunter s. thompson to paraphrase when he described why the democrats put george mcgovern up against richard nixon and lost. he said, you don't send a three-toad sloth in to fight a wolfer even. donald trump is our wolverine, and it looks like hillary clinton is becoming the three-toed sloth. >> that might sound to some as a diversionary tactic. the gop has plenty of problems of its own before you go throwing stones. mike, to bring you in here, paul
ryan as john just pointed out, all eyes on him. he's been speaking to "the wall street journal," talking about the issue of unity, looking ahead to thursday. take a listen. >> so i think what we want to do is sit down together and talk about how we can unify the republican party so that we can be at full strength in the fall because if we just pretend we're unified without actually unifying then we'll be at half strength in the fall and that won't go well for us. >> mike, let me ask you a question i've asked others. who is the onus on to make nice come thursday? is it more on paul ryan or is it on donald trump? >> that's a really good question. i think donald trump has the upper hand. so any other candidate in any other election would want to make nice with the new speaker of the house, right? but we know that this is not like any other election, and donald trump's not like any other candidate. i don't know what he gets out of making nice with paul ryan. first of all, i don't think paul
ryan is, like, the soul of the republican party. i don't think people really look at him that way, and i don't know what donald trump gets out of it. like i think the conflict is actually good for him. it solidifies his outsider status, and again trump has the upper hand. remember in the wisconsin primary, trump won paul ryan's district. so trump, in paul ryan's hometown, trump is more liked than paul ryan. i think that's true nationwide too. >> james, does donald trump need the republican party because the question here is what about the donors? are the donors sitting on the sidelines until this gets sorted out? >> well, donald trump reflects the voters, and so there's paul ryan. there's donald trump. and there are millions and millions of angry voters out there that have seen in donald trump's campaign a ray of hope from the problems of unemployment, from the lack of growth, from the grossly high taxation that the obama
administration -- you know, 39% marginal rate. here in california when you add the 11% that the democrats put on on the state, it's over 50% marginal taxes. voters are angry. they want a change. and i think that donald trump is reflecting that, and i agree with my friend, mike slater. i've been on his radio show. great guy. the reality here is that donald trump and the voters are what matters, and i think that paul ryan will understand that and that they'll work together. >> i want you to both listen to a portion of this interview that marco rubio gave to our jake tapper, first national interview since dropping out of the race. he doesn't want to be trump's v.p., and he can't really bring himself still to mention the name trump. >> there are a lot of questions about the republican party and where it goes from here. first and foremost, there's this claim from the trump campaign that advisers of yours have been pitching you hard to the trump campaign to be his running mate, that you really want the job according to these trump campaign officials talking about
these advisers. what's your position on this. >> that would be impossible because i don't really have very many advisers. our campaign is no longer running and unless they've been talking to my wife, which is my critical advisers these days. >> does she want you to be -- >> like i said yesterday, i think donald -- he's the presumptive nominee at this point. but he'd be best served by having someone not just by the way of vice presidential nominee but active surrogates who agree with him on his issues. my differences with donald, both my reservations about his campaign and my policy differences with him are well documented and they remain. and i think he would be best served by having people close to him and his campaign that are enthusiastic about the things he stands for. >> i interviewed speaker ryan thursday as you probably saw. he said he couldn't endorse donald trump right now. is that what you're saying or, no? >> the difference between speaker ryan and myself is i ran for president. i signed a pledge, put my name on it, and i said i would support the republican nominee, and that's what i intend to do. i think the best thing i can do to do that, i think, is to support those who are out there
running for the conservative cause, whether it's to keep a conservative majority in the senate or in the house for that matter and across the country at different levels. and what i don't want to do and what i'm not going to do is sit here for the next six months and, as i said, take shots at the republican nominee. i ultimately believe he has earned and i respect the will of the voters and i believe he's earned the opportunity to go out and make his case to the american people without having people in his own party taking shots at him every day. >> i understand that, but it does seem like you're trying to walk this -- >> it's a very unique situation, and i understand -- >> are you going to vote for him? >> well, as i said, i'm going to support the republican nominee. >> no. you're going to abide by your pledge, but when you go into the privacy of the voting booth -- >> i intend to support the republican nominee. >> including -- >> i'm not voting for hillary clinton. >> okay. >> i'm not throwing away my vote. >> okay. marco rubio speaking to jake tapper earlier. so, mike, the lodger this division goes on, the longer these people hedge their bets and this disunity goes on, how
much harder does it make for the republicans and donald trump to win the election? >> guys, this is really interesting. i wonder how much of this is fun to talk about but doesn't matter. i don't mean to be rude, but like i don't know any conservative republicans who are on the edge of their seats waiting for marco rubio to give them permission to support donald trump. do you know what i mean? like so we talk about unity of the party, but when it comes to trump supporters, it's really about unity between me, a person, and donald trump, the candidate. that's the unity that matters, and no one doubts that that unity exists. this like vague unity of like bringing marco rubio into it and the other 15 people who trump obliterated during the last eight months, like i don't think trump or supporters of trump even care what those other 16 people want or will do. so i don't know. i don't know if unity matters that much because there's unity between trump supporters and trump. >> all right. james, i want to ask you very quickly about this whole issue
of the v.p. pick because rubio did, you know, rule himself out, and he's in good company. a number of people have. why are so many people running away from serving as trump v.p., being on the ticket? what does that point to? >> well, maybe marco rubio is stepping back from it, but, you know, there's really no rush to do this. i mean, my god, trump hasn't even won the california primary yet. >> he says he has a short list by the way. >> well, it's good that he has a short list, but where is the rush here? i think that the american people are tired of the politics as usual, the back rooms, the smoke-filled rooms. you know, mitt romney going into a room with jeb bush and deciding who's going to run for president in this election. i think that trump can take his time, and i think that taking his time is actually a good thing. i think the vetting process is a good one. he has ben carson involved in it. it's a process that i think will help to bring party unity because people will be coming to the trump campaign to put their credentials forward. but i think at the end of the day with the, you know, donald
trump's a smart man and he's got good advisers. i think he's going to end up with a really good nominee that will help unify the party as well. james lacy and mike slater, thank you so much. >> thank you, guys. >> thank you, guys. >> thank you. time for a quick break now. you're watching cnn's special election coverage. when we return, they're both in striking distance. nominations. how do hillary clinton and donald trump stack up in a head-to-head matchup in the most critical swing states? what's with him?
they found out who's been who? cking into our network. guess. i don't know, some kids in a basement? you watch too many movies. who? a small business in china. a business? they work nine to five. they take lunch hours. like a job? like a job. we tracked them. how did we do that? we have some new guys defending our network. new guys? well, they're not that new. they've been defending things for a long time. [ digital typewriting ] it's not just security. it's defense. bae systems.
and tonight it appears that we've won a big, big victory in west virginia. >> democrat bernie sanders scored a decisive win tuesday night in west virginia. he beat hillary clinton 51% to 36%. >> but that victory does little to help sanders because both candidates add to their delegate totals. clinton now 150 shy of clinching her party's nomination. >> she's already looking ahead to the next big race after tuesday's loss. senior washington correspondent jeff zeleny is following the clinton campaign in kentucky. >> reporter: hillary clinton losing the west virginia primary to bernie sanders, it's a state she won eight years ago to barack obama by some 40 percentage points. of course so much has changed since then. she's effectively running to be president obama's extension, his third time. that was not viewed very favorably by west virginia voters, but she still has that big lead in pledged delegates
and even bigger lead in super delegates. she is trying to look forward to the general election race with donald trump. bernie sanders has a month more of contests. he's remaining in the race. she must still compete with him because she has to keep winning delegates. but this race has shifted. it did not change tonight. she still leads big in delegates even with bernie sanders' win in west virginia. jeff zeleny, cnn, louisville, kentucky. >> republican donald trump scored commanding wins in both republican contests tuesday night. in west virginia, trump came away with 76% of the vote. >> and in nebraska, trump is the winner with 61% of the vote. trump now has 1,119 delegates. he needs 1,237 to clinch the nomination. >> sara murray is following the trump campaign from new york. >> reporter: donald trump picked up two more victories on tuesday night in west virginia and in nebraska. now we shouldn't be stunned by this because every other republican has dropped out of the race. but it does help trump get even closer to getting that 1,237
delegates he needs to officially become the republican nominee. now, of course, part of becoming the republican nominee means rallying the republican party behind him. and donald trump has had some hiccups on that front. house speaker paul ryan has said he's not quite ready to endorse trump. but the two are slated to meet later this week in washington, and on tuesday night, trump was sounding a more optimistic tone. his aides say they believe he and paul ryan can find some common ground on issues like cutting the debt, on issues like cutting taxes for middle class families, and trump even says he wants to see paul ryan stay on as co-chair of the upcoming republican convention in cleveland. now, whether this means they will meet later this week and sweep their differences under the rug or whether there still could be fireworks ahead still remains to be seen. sara murray, cnn, new york. well, here with us now, radio talk show host larry elder and former l.a. council woman wendy greuel, who is also a hillary clinton supporter. let's talk about the general election campaign because there
was that quinnipiac poll today. it shows hillar clinton and donald trump in a virtual dead heat in three crucial swing states. look at the numbers for bernie sanders. he does a little better against trump, especially in ohio. larry, to you donald trump is doing about as well as mitt romney at the same point in his campaign and he lost. >> and mitt romney did not have 16 people shooting at him and had millions of dollars of anti-ads dumped on him at this point. the problem that the democrats are going to have with donald trump is that he's not a fiscal conservative. he is a populist, and on a lot of issues he and hillary are similar. they both now want to raise the minimum wage. they both talk about preserving social security and the so-called social safety net. even on taxes, donald trump talks about a massive tax but he also says that rich people should be paying a little bit more money. and on foreign policy, donald trump arguably is even more hostile to the iraq war than bernie sanders was. he even called the bush administration lying into the war. so if i'm trying to game donald
trump, i can't pull out the same play book that i would use against a fiscal and a social conservative. >> wendy, are you going to vote for donald trump? >> no, and they're just proved my point. donald trump is all over the map. and one day he says that he, you know, how can you live on $7.25 an hour, and the next day he says there should be no minute welcome wage in this country. you know, donald trump's numbers improved after all of these candidates were no longer running against him. i think as well, hillary clinton's numbers in these two states are going to improve when she is the democratic nominee. she's been true to who she is and what she's fighting for, and the barriers she's trying to break down for families in this country. >> to that point, take a listen to what she had to say while campaigning in kentucky. she talks about the stark contrast between herself and the republican presumptive nominee. >> you could not imagine a more different vision for our country than the one between our side of
democrats for progress, for prosperity, for fairness and opportunity, than the presumptive nominee on the republican side. and that's why it's important we have a big vote on next tuesday because we've got to get ready to go all the way to november to win the general election. >> she's talking about policy, sticking to the details against a candidate like donald trump, who doesn't use that playbook. >> he does not, and i think that what she's been able to talk about policies on economy, our economy, talking about foreign policy. you know, she knows about what's important in this world, which is a crazy place right now. donald trump knows nothing about foreign policy, and i think ultimately the people are going to say, i want someone who's commander-in-chief who knows what she's doing. >> larry. >> regarding her positions, hillary has hardly been
consistent. at one time she was in favor of traditional marriage. she now is in favor of same-sex marriage. she supported the asian trade agreement. now she's opposed to it. she voted for the iraq war. now she's opposed to that. so for somebody who has changed her position as many times as hillary has, i'd be a little reluctant to accuse donald trump of shifting his positions. >> are you likely to evolve your positions over a period of years or a period of hours because hillary clinton -- >> i don't know about that either. hillary during the campaign said she was a moderate and then she said she was a progressive and then went back and forth. i think hillary has a very long record. she's changed her position a number of times and i can imagine the hit ads about her positions being changed too. >> the question that many people have is whether hillary should hit at trump, whether she should go negative, whether she should take the fight to him, and where we've seen elizabeth warren take on trump. let's read some of the tweets because she got into a kind of
twitter war with donald trump a couple of days ago. this all started after trump locked up the nomination. warren sent out a tweet saying effectively, his campaign was built on racism, sexism and zen phobia, which led to trump saying this. i hope corrupt hillary clinton chooses goofy elizabeth warren as her running mate. i will defeat them both. warren tweeted a flurry of responses. goofy, donald trump? for a guy with the best words, that's a pretty lame nickname. weak. and this, she added. donald trump spews insults and lies because he can't have an honest conversation about his dangerous vision for america. people asking is that the way the democrats should take on trump? wendy? >> well, i think hillary clinton has proven in this last 24, 48 hours or for the many, you know, weeks that he has taken her on and had personal attacks, she's stayed above the fray. she's running for president of the united states. she is not going to get into the gutter with someone who is using the kind of language that he is. however, i think there's going
to be others out there who are going to call him on some of the things that he has said against latinos and african-americans and so many other groups and women. you know, when you look at the fact that 70% of the women in the democratic party just don't like him and the kinds of comments he's made about women are offensive. >> and if i'm donald trump, i'm going to do something about the fact that many of these women do not like me by pointing out some of the things that hillary has done and said about her husband's accusers. a lot of people are unaware that hillary has been behind this strategy called the nuts or sluts, maligning women as either crazy or horny. it's a legitimate issue as far as i'm concerned. >> wendy. >> very quickly, last word. >> i think that's outrageous. >> you would. >> i think it is. >> and clinton supporters will find out and trump supporters, that's what they're looking for. >> that's where we're going. >> i think we have to say this
is about being the president of the united states and about issues that real people care about, and they don't care about that. they care about someone who is going to lead them and get them a job and protect us in this world. >> i guess we'll find out how much people care about this come november. thank you both for coming again. coming up, facebook is being accused of offering a biased picture of the news. now u.s. lawmakers want answers. i'm in vests and as a vested investor in vests, i invest with e*trade, where investors can investigate and invest in vests... or not in vests.

catching hillary clinton in the delegate race. >> sanders winning the state with 51% of the vote, clinton, 36%. >> on the republican side, donald trump running unopposed in west virginia. he wins that state's primary by a huge margin. >> trump also on top in nebraska. >> now barack obama will make history later this month by becoming the first sitting u.s. president to visit hiroshima. >> the city is the site of bomb attack which killed tens of thousands. it set the stage for japan's surrender. >> an adviser of president obama said he's speak against nuclear proliferation, not to make a formal apology. allegations that facebook has a liberal bias. the tech log gizmodo cited former contractors who said colleagues deliberately blocked conservative topics. >> the senate has opened an
irinquiry has to how the site manages. >> we're joined by ross gerber. he's the president and ceo of gerber kawasaki wealth and investment management. let me ask you a very simple question which i think people around the world are maybe pondering. is this a big deal? >> no, it's not a big deal. of course who owns all media sources are usually big-time moguls who do have agendas of some sort. so i do think that it's a little bit overblown when we look at things. but i do think ultimately facebook has to have a better process, and it should be very clear what their process is. they should have better control over who's making these decisions. i think the mistake is that some contractor who was doing this and maybe it should be a higher level employee. >> facebook ceo mark zuckerberg, he hasn't been shy talking about his liberal political leanings. this was him back in april. >> i hear fearful voices calling for building walls and
distancing people they label as others. for blocking free expression, for slowing immigration, reducing trade and in some cases around the world, even cutting access to the internet. it takes courage to choose hope over fear. >> you say it's not a big deal, but when you listen to conservative talk radio, all over the radio was, aha, gotcha, this confirmed everything we thought about facebook. it has liberal bias to it. >> i think that's true. i think it does have liberal bias to it as the users have liberal bias. it skews that demographic, so it represents its users too. so we can't change that maybe what is trending is a liberal bias. now, you know, the bottom line is he's entitled to his opinion. now, i'm a facebook shareholder so i'm biased too, and i do think that he's entitled to his opinion just like sheldon adelson buys a newspaper to have
his opinion or whatever. does that actually happen? i don't know. i think journalists do a phenomenal job, and you all work very, very hard to -- >> we do. >> to bring good stories out. so i think that they need to have a clear process and beyond that, who cares. >> and this question of, well, you know, the concern here is that it points to silicon valley's influence over the general public. i mean with 1.6 billion users, people saying they have an outsize level of importance so when they skew, if you will, which is what the allegation -- >> i think that's overly generous. i don't think they have that much of an influence. i think people make plenty of decisions. they've opened the door to people being influenced by so many things in so many places, and so many great sources. so actually i think what's happened is they've opened the door for people to find what they want to know and where they're going to get it from. >> thank you very much for coming in. >> thank you. >> my pleasure. thank you. >> trending topics is what
people are really looking at. cat videos. >> somebody's got to curate it. >> they might choose red cats. >> exactly. >> all right. time for a quick break now. police go back to paisley park. still ahead, why they returned to prince's home and who officials think may have some answers. we're out ink.nk. not ink. getting ink doesn't have to be painful. staples just cut ink and toner prices.

welcome back, everybody. you're watching cnn's special life coverage of the presidential primaries in west virginia and nebraska. even though she did not win in west virginia, hillary clinton is still moving closer to the democratic presidential nomination. >> bernie sanders actually won in the mountain state. but clinton adds to her virtual insurmountable delegate lead. >> republican donald trump is closing in on his delegate target as well after a huge victory in west virginia. ted cruz and john kasich finishing in single digits. >> trump is also the big winner in nebraska. he takes all 36 republican delegates there. all right. away from politics now. there are new details emerging about the investigation inprince's death. >> federal and local authorities
