country but this one's personal. [ applause ] new yorkers, you've always had my back. [ applause ] and i've always tried to have yours. >> and you can take a look at how the numbers stack up at this hour for both donald trump and his republican rivals. he is now pierced the 60% mark at 60.5%. a huge margin over second place, governor john kasich of ohio. ted cruz didn't get one delegate in new york state, third at 14.5%. >> i want to say thank you to everybody. it's really nice to win the delegates with the votes. you know, it's really nice. >> and for more on the republican race, let's go to garret who joins us from d.c.
with more. good morning, garret. >> reporter: good morning, erick and heather. this was certainly the homecoming the donald was looking for and it looks to be his biggest victory of his entire campaign, winning 60% of the vote and john kasich in second at 25%. trump dominated among groups he's done well in throughout the race. they said they want the next president to be someone from outside the establishment. a whopping 85% of those went for trump. and in new york, nearly 7 in 10 voters want to see a temporary bans of muslims into the u.s. and of those, 72% voted for trump as well. and the trump campaign had a goal of picking up 80 of the
state's 95 delegates and right now projected to beat that goal with 85 delegates. and ted cruz walks away with none from the empire state. donald trump has 845, ted cruz, 559 and john kasich, 147. and trump is hoping to avoid a delegate process a contested convention. >> nobody should take delegates and claim victory unless they get those delegates with voters and voting and that's what is going to happen. and you watch, because the people aren't going to stand for it. it's a crooked system and we're going to go back to the old way. it's called you vote and you win. >> ted cruz didn't even mention new york's primary and instead he is looking forward to the other contests. >> but we do need each other,
all of us, coming together as one, as we the people. because not only do we say yes, we can, beginning here and now we pledge to each and every one of us yes, we will. >> donald trump is not taking a break after his big win. he'll be campaigning later today indiana in and maryland. >> ted cruz moved on to pennsylvania. lively for us, thank you, garret. and now for the latest on the democratic side. let's take a look at mrs. clinton's campaign. she had a win much larger than many of the polls predicted. and bryan, just recently as yesterday one poll had them only two points apart. instead she won by 15. >> reporter: exactly right. a double digit win who can now tout a win in her adoptive home
state where she served as senator for eight years. the win adding to her already big delegate lead, ending a string of seven straight victories for sanders' campaign. leading in all five burrows including brooklyn where sanders was born. and polls had shown her lead narrowing to sanders. but last night she shifted to uniting the party and to the general election. >> today you proved once again there's no place like home. and to all the people who supported senator sanders, i believe there is much more that unite said us than divides us. >> the math now is overwhelmingly in favor of
clinton becoming the democratic nominee. clinton picks upality least 145 of new york's 247 delegate dele. and including superdelegates, it's even larger. sanders will have to win 71% in the remaining delegates and superdelegates. a behemoth task. sanders-campaign manager says they will continue to fight for the nomnation to the convention, even if clinton is leading in pledge delegates and the popular vote. listen on the press conference sanders held earlier.
>> sanders also blasting new york's voting process for not allowing independent registered voters to vote and new york city announcing it will audit its board of elections after 125,000 voters names in brooklyn were inexplicably removed and sanders is taking the night off. >> thanks very much on the latest. and joining us now an agungt professor and supporter of sanders. so, we've been told that bernie sanders has gone home to
vermont. do you know why? >> caller: it's a late night. we got a long way to go still in this campaign. so, i think it's okay to take a rest before he heads back out. >> has there been any requests or conversation about him dropping out? >> caller: no, no, no. those in the sanders campaign expect him to keep moving forward. we have a big week next week and moveing all the way through june 7th and the convention as the campaign as been saying. >> reportedly he would need 57% of the remaining delegates to win the nomination. do you think that he can do that? >> caller: of course. he can do it. there's no reason that he can't. in the states we've won, we've won with pretty big margins. and we plan on working hard to make a strong and compelling case to super delegates as well.
both campaigns might not make it to the thresh hold with pledge delegates only, so we'll is to make a case of super delegates. >> so, what about the tone of the race moving up to the convention? do you expect the sanders' camp will change their tone or will he continue to go after clinton? >> caller: i think what you're seeing is the highlighting -- or the show casing of the real differences between these two candidates. as time goes on, you see that the sanders campaign is not just a campaign that is slightly different in the clinton campaign but represents a whole new movement, new generation of voters. a political revolution as bernie has said. to really get out there and chai change the system in america, change the way we do elections. that's not nasty, that's not
negative. that's really highlighting the reasons as to why all of us are standing behind bernie. >> what about all the people standing behind bernie? do you think they should be willing to ais port hillary clinton? >> like i said this is a different movement than any we've seen before. it's not only about supporting a particular party but for certain principals. if secretary clinton can find a way to bring us all in the tent, i think people would be open to that. but if she acts dismissive when talking about our campaign, that might be difficult. but we're not thinking about any of those kinds of things yet. >> you say bringing bernie's followers into the tent with
her. what about him maybe getting a spot in a clinton administration. >> we're still looking at win the nomination. we think that we can do that and we're going to stand behind bernie all the way. >> i want to ask you finally though about some of the problems at the polls for bernie supporters specifically. there were 125,000 people, by some counts, who were purged from some of the polls. do you think that impacted sanders' campaign and will be a problem moving forward? >> caller: he's very, very concerned and so are the rest of us about these stories. disenfranchising people, especially in an important primary in new york is unkaungsinable. it's already a closed primary, so it favors the establishment a little bit more. when these kinds of things
happen, it's worse. and i think everybody should be concerned about those kinds of things going on. everybody should worry that we have a system where it's one person, one vote, so they can really get a candidate that represents the people. >> what are you going to do about it? >> as far as i know, the campaign is going to look into the stories. even the mayor who is a supporter of secretary clinton, says these are things need r that need to be looking into. find a way to get these people's voices heard. >> lot of those people were nonregistered. and this was a closed primary. they were independent and couldn't participate. we want to go to sound from clinton's speech where she did reach out to some of sanders' supporters. i want you to listen and get
your response. >> it's humbling that you trust me with the awesome responsibility that await our next president. [ applause ] and to all the people who supported senator sanders, i believe there is much more that unites us than divides. >> so, your response to that. do you believe that his followers believe that? >> caller: no, i mean, i think there's still major issues with releasing the transcripts of her speeches, rejecting big money and money from big business. these kinds of things have not been fully addressed by secretary clinton and these are at the core of bernie's message and his campaign. i wouldn't say yes, she's done a very good job of reaching out to those of us who support senator sanders so innerjetically.
>> thank you for your insight and joining us this very early morning. we appreciate it. >> caller: thank you. >> so, what do sanders' supporters do now? a p pulitzer author and tony, let me start with you. as the bernie sanders' supporter just said, they have issues. mrs. clinton looked to start reaching out to sanders supporters. is it possible he'll drop out, he'll have a tough tuesday. >> i think the bigger problem for hillary clinton over the actual candidacy of bernie sanders is the movement he's inspired and there is going to be an end to the sanders'
campaign, whether or not it's next week or after california, it's going to come. you see the clinton campaign and their surrogates trying to get them out sooner than later. because this has stopped being constructive and gotten a little nastier and uglier. the movement you point is going to the convention and they're going to demand things. perhaps a sherry brown from ohio, they're going to address super delegates and the rules going forward. so, even if he exits this campaign, there is going to be a massive amount of influence that inhis movement will continue to have in this party and if it does, it's going to be big trouble for her in november. >> i actually agree with tony, which is rare. but one, is one of the things
that clinton campaign and the states, by the way next week do favor hillary clinton. there's no question about that. areas that she could learn from the sanders' campaign is on technology. i mean -- they appeal for people being volunteers by using email. the sanders people text people. they're using every new technology go sdwhg cliing and n people aren't there. >> how do you get a young person and they're energetic. it's so good they're involved in the process, no matter what side of the aisle you're on. how do you get them to vote for it big bad hillary who won't release her speeches, etc., etc., etc. and the big super
pack. >> if it is donald trump versus hillary clinton, i don't think it's going to be a huge problem. >> i think if it is any of the current republican contenders, it's not going to be a problem. the problem is channelling that ener energy. but i think she's counting on the themes of the general election. the messages are totally different and yes, donald trump could pivot, ted cruz could pivot. but we have a lot of talk from donald trump about antimuslims, immigrant. hillary is all about, even with bernie, breaking down barriers, rather than building walls and that's what hillary is counting on to mobilize young people to bring them over to her side. you know, they may have to give out close pins with ballots, but
i think young people will turn out for hillary clinton. >> one of the exit polls shows 68% of the voters agree with trump's muslim positions. >> yes, that is in new york at the moment. we have to look at typography. mexican immigrants becoming able to vote every month. you know, you have to deal with this and the -- >> it's the fourth largest mispanmis p -- hispanic group and you have california coming up and that's a whole different thing. he did well among the hispanics in chicago. so, it's not everything we think it might be. >> i think don't you can dismiss
the kind of campaign that trump can run against hillary clinton. and some would really prefer to run against ted cruz, because that's a play book they already know how to use. trump is asymmetrical and he could make the argument that he's the outsider that dek disrupt the system that many sanders supporters want to see disruptive. >> trump spoke to his supporters. >> and i think it was one of the savvier maneuvemaneuvers. >> and he can pivot, he can change, but those statements he has made will be played again and again and again. >> asymmetric warfare. it's coming at you -- you don't know where it's coming from.
>> or if you are donald trump, right now, it's coming from every direction as well. >> true. >> well, hillary clinton doing well in her adoptive state of new york. >> and our special election coverage continues in the fox news channel. we're live in your living room all night. (announcer) need to hire fast?
♪ welcome back. we are america's election headquarters. and new york voters showing their support for hillary clinton. and polls show experience and someone capable of beating republican frontrunner, donald trump. those were the main issues driving democrats to the voting booth. and here with more on that. good morning, kelly. >> good to see you as always. and hillary clinton is savering her victory but not taking her win for granted. during her victory speech last night, clinton said she would be heading to connecticut to campaign there in the morning. her win in the adaptive home state of new york is a big
victory in more ways than one. it likely means her challenger, bernie sanders has thinking to do as well. so, the question is does he stay in or bow out? many are saying, including sanders himself, that he'd like to fight it all the way to the end. for starters, unlike the gop voters who favor an outsider, like donald trump, they're looking for someone with political experience. clinton trounss with a huge 91% over 9%. and half in the empire state want a candidate who will continue president obama's agenda. clinton getting 75% of those votes. and 65% feel clinton is the better candidate to beat trump in november. and she's popular among
hispanics, winning 64% of the hispanic vote. and scored big with black voters, 75%. very good night for former secretary of state, clinton. back to you. >> i like that very much, kelly. new york state of winning. >> yeah, and donald trump, played the frank sinatra song at the end of his news conference, the one that the yankees play. and it was more than just a home state advantage. coming up, we'll tell you why some new york voters spoke their minds. and our panel weighs in on the issues that propelled trump and clinton to victories in their home states. and can you explain why you recommend synthetic over cedar? "super food?" is that a real thing? it's a great school, but is it the right one for her? is this really any better than the one you got last year? if we consolidate suppliers, what's the savings there?
♪ well, donald trump and hillary clinton reboiunding tonight with their big wins in new york state. mr. trump getting 60% of the vote and he nabbed 89 delegates. zero to texas senator, ted cruz. on the democratic side, clinton getting just shy of 58% of the vote, far more than the polls predicted. so, what could the general
election bring? and judy miller, pulitzer prize winning journalist and author, "the story." and is out today in paper back. and tony, the executive vice president of james town and associates and remember the 1992 bill clinton -- what was that you said? >> it's the economy, stupid. that was the big montra in 1992. >> i was concerned that they're bringing back a lot of their old people but what's fascinating is they had an event where they handed out buttons, even on the press that said balanced budget. so, the older voters do remember in a positive way the clintons and their balanced budget. >> tony, let me bring this up. 92% of new york voters are very
worried or somewhat worried about the economy. and if you're talking about it's the economy stupid. do you think that will help hillary clinton as it did her husband or donald trump? >> hillary clinton is going to continue the barack obama economic policies and while 75% of democratic voters said they support them. we know others believe we have been going on the wrong track. you have people leaving the labor force and the fact that wages have not gone up. so, this is why bernie sanders has been able to make a whole income inekauquality, justice argument so eeffectieffectively. it helps trump because he is the person who most people believe will disrupt a system they don't believe is working for them, an
economic system. >> he introduced some of the major business people supporting him. >> but these are business people. these are not people one would think would appeal to working people worried about job security and income and equality. when you look at barack obama's record, what's fascinating to me is the gap between the perception and the reality. when he was inaugurated, it was 7.8% unemployment, now it's 4%. and there was no growth and now we're 2.3% growth and yet people feel more insecure. >> why is that? >> but those aren't great numbers, by the way. >> when you look that numbers, you have to take into account, the number of people who have dropped out of the work force.
>> where i think both hillary clinton and donald trump are going to be on some very thin ice has to do with trade agreements and jobs going overseas, taxes going overseas. that's a big problem. >> and think about how far hillary clinton has to h to go on economic iessues because of bernie sanders. president obama is pro-fracking, hillary clinton is now anti-fracking. and she's now all the sudden against it. so, she shifted hard core left on so many of these things. it's hard for her to make the argument that she's a sentrist like her husband perhaps was. >> she can't do that once she gets the nomination is this. >> she's going to have tv that
shows the hypocrisy. >> and the honesty. >> and believe me, i've tried to get my hands around the magic of donald trump, so i don't blame others for not getting there yet. but the reality is people don't believe politicians period, hillary, top of that list. with trump, there is a belief that they will do what they say they're going to do. that there's a bit more authenticity and honesty to these reforms. >> but donald trump has said everything. he's been on every side of an issue. he started out saying the democrats, then a republicans, we think. i don't think when general election campaign people will believe either one of these candidate sai
candidates, but it's true that donald trump and bernie sanders occupied this outside er but i think that will go away when the general election starts. >> we'll see. >> and coming up, what hillary clinton and donald trump think about their victories tuesday. we'll listen to what they had to say pm the call just came in. she's about to arrive. and with her, a flood of potential patients. a deluge of digital records. . all on account...of penelope. but with the help of at&t, and a network that scales up and down on-demand, this hospital can be ready. giving them the agility to be flexible & reliable. because no one knows & like at&t.
welcome back. we are america's election headquarte headquarters. we sure appreciate you sticking around with us this evening and early morning. >> this has been an incredible evening. it's been an incredible day and week. we went all over new york state, new york state has problems like virtually every other state in the union. our jobs are being sucked out of our states. they're being taken out of our country and we're not going to let it happen anymore. we're going to stop it. very importantly and behind me i have to say we have some of our great businessman of the world, carl icon is here someplace. where is carl? ben lubow. the great steve roth. steve's building a big building
on central park south. i said, steve, congratulations on the building and he said d n dona donald, it's nothing like what's happening with you. my man. but we have our great leaders and it has been really something, really something amazing. and believe me, we're going to use our great business people to negotiate unbelievable trade deals so we bring our jobs back and we don't let our companies go to mexico and all these other countries anymore. we're going to keep the jobs here. you're going to be very proud of this country very soon. we're going to build our military bigger, better, stronger than ever before. [ applause ] nobody is going to mess with us. we're going to take care of our vets. our vets are great people and we
have forgotten our vets. illegal immigrants are taken care of, in many cases, better than our vets. that is not going to happen anymore. that is not going to happen. we're getting rid of obama care. it's a total disaster. with premiums going up 35, 45, 55%. it's going to probably end of its own vulition. we're bringing common core, we're knocking it out. it's going to be over and we're bringing education locally. local communities are going to take care of their educational needs and people have been waiting for that for a long time. so, with all of the things that have happened today, tonight and over the week, i'll tell you what, this has been an amazing week. all over new york state. we went to syracuse, albany. 20,000 people. on average we'd have 15 to
20,000 people. went all over and the people of this country and the people of this state truly are great and amazing people. we are going to be so strong again, we're going to be -- really. i mean, legitimately, so great again and i just can't wait. so, we don't have much of a race anymore. based on what i'm seeing on television. senator cruz is just about mathematically eliminated. [ applause ] and we've won another state. as you know, we've won millions of more votes than senator cruz, millions and millions more than governor kasich. we've won and especially after tonight, close to 300 del degat more than senator cruz. we're really, really rocking.
we expect we're going to have an amazing number of weeks because these are places and they're in trouble. >> and of course, not only donald trump, but also we heard from hillary clinton speaking to a crowd of her supporters after her big win in new york. she thanked new yorkers for, as she said, always having her back and saying the race, in her view, is now in the homestretch. >> you know, today you proved once again there's no place like home. [ applause ] you know, in this campaign we've won in every region of the country. from the north to the south, to the east, to the west. but this one's purersonapersona. [ applause ]
new yorkers, you've always, you've always had my back. [ applause ] and i've always tried to have yours. [ applause ] today, together we did it again and i am deeply, deeply grateful. i want to thank everyone who came out and voted and to all of you across new york who've known me and worked with me for so long. it is humbling that you'd trust me with the awesome responsibilities that await our next president. and to all the people who supported senator sanders i believe there is much more that unites us than divides us.
