troops out. hillary clinton has a demanding delegate lead. but bernie is in the lead in wisconsin which as you say is next tuesday and new york is not until april 19th. but the clintons are not taking it for granted. bill clinton is near where i am. and bill clinton was saying, we can't take anything for granted. folks have to turn out for hillary clinton. and bernie sanders is in pennsylvania stumping for votes. watch this. >> i want to implore you, the real enemy is that new york has a low turn out in the presidential primaries. and we have to have a big turn out. >> i think if you get paid 250,000 to speak, it must be an extraordinary mind- blowing earth-shattering speech. it must be a speech that reveals
all kinds of truth. it must be a speech written in shakespearean prose. >> reporter: bernie sanders not stopping the attack. the clintons want him to stop the negative attacks. new york votes on april 19th. pennsylvania is april 26th. both of these candidates are fighting for every possible delegate because time is running out for bernie sanders to catch up. he's out here in the bronx in new york and pennsylvania today. he a fighting for the votes. >> new york is huge. bernie feeling confident? >> reporter: no doubt about it. bernie sanders believes if he continues the momentum with the states of wisconsin, next week, and even come in second place in
porportional delegates, and in new york pick up delegates and hopes to win pennsylvania and california. that is running the table and a lot of pressure on him to do it and the super delegates, party bosses, that is putting her over the top for now. but they can switch. and sanders hopes if he goes on a run, some of the super delegates will flip like they did from clinton to bark bookkeeper obama in 2008. >> ed, thank you. stakes are high for republicans in next tuesday's wisconsin primary. which is win or take most. and a now poll. regardless of the race turning out. some political pundits are wonder if the gop can recover saying the convention will do
little to heal the wounds. listen to ted cruz talking about donald trump. >> if i were getting ready to reverse in my car and so donald in the back up camera, i am not confident which pedal i would push. and chris, anchor of fox news sunday. there is an article entitled gop at the breaking point. this is a party that is heading to a convention with a lot of fishers, chris. >> absolutely. fishers like fusion and fission, absolutely. there is a lot of splits in the party. there is splits between the so- called establishment and tea party or freedom caucus. i think everybody is surprised to see how it played out in the presidential race and the fact that over the last week, trump,
cruz and kasich all said they may not keep the pledge to support the nominee and in trump's case, he didn't be if hemented cruz' support. usually in the end upon of the convention think of hillary clinton and barak obama. they are in unitty and campaigned together. these guys just plain don't like each other. >> and the trump super pac buying ads in wisconsin and pennsylvania to support any candidate but trump. >> who ever wins the nomination at least a thousand or 200 delegates are going to go home unhappy. hillary clinton if she is the nominee can be a mobilizing force. that's the feeling in the clinton camp. each if the sanders people are
not happy about her, they will support her against trump. i believe the republicans will feel the same. who ever the nominee is, that person will give republican support because positive distaste for clinton. >> clearly they are trying to appeal to trump supporters. kasich in new york city had to say this. chris? >> i want to make clear to all of you here, for those people who are fervent trump supporters, their frustrations and expressions do not fall on deaf ears for me. i know many of the trump supporters fear for the security of their jobs and believing that politicians don't care about them as they see the rich get richer and they are increasingly stuck without wage increases. >> he's making the appeal, but
can it work? >> that's the basic strategy and tactic that kasich can use even if he gets the hundred percent of the delegates. he would not reach the majority. and his only hope is for a contested convention and delegates that are supporting other candidates and put them over the top. and he's smart to reach out. i hear your message and if trump is not the person you end up voting for, you will vote for me. and will put him over the top as the nominee. >> chris wallace, thank you. and coming up on fox news sunday this weekend, chris will sit down, yes, with donald trump. check your local listings for the time it airs in your air on the big fox. and now a fox news alert.
