thinks there's a chance he could do well and he's floating the possibility of restarting his presidential campaign if he does. more on that later this hour. but first, the general election is less than six months away and brand new polls out that show trump and clinton in a dead-heat in three must-win states, florida, ohio and pennsylvania. in florida it's clinton 43, trump 42, in ohio, trump is beating her 43-39. and in pennsylvania, again, clinton only ahead by one point, 43-42. let's bring in special report host bret baier. we saw these three very important swing states, must-win states, florida, ohio, and pennsylvania. and ppp came out with a poll that had within the margin of error statistical tie, nationally as well. the course of a week, donald trump is the presumptive nominee, he's tightened the race pretty well, hasn't he? >> he has. the caveat is general election
polls this earl will i usually, tough take with a grain of salt. but it's interesting to measure them with how the last gop nominee did at this juncture. and that was mitt romney. tracking about the same as florida and ohio, but tracking behind where donald trump is in pennsylvania. and what's interesting inside the polls, is that while trump trails clinton, with women, is each of these states, he overcompensates with men. in these polls. and it suggests that in these swing states that are so crucial, that it could be a very tight race. we haven't even started and they're not official nominees as of yet. but it suggests we could be in for a long six months. >> kg, a question for bret? >> what do you attribute the tightening of race? i don't think it can be attributed just to the fact that now he's become the presumptive
nominee. what kind of trends do you think people are saying it's accountable for. >> both people have high unfavorable numbers, we talked about that they both have the lowest favorable numbers. but what is the variable for donald trump is how he's going to attack hillary clinton. you've seen it over the past few days. being an enabler for bill clinton. talking about an ad on the internet about benghazi. and that stuff affects people. and it may affect independents. >> ebony? >> peeki ispeaking of that, bre mentioned that donald trump struggles with member and that's where donald trump is making up for it with men. going back to trump's issue with women, do you think calling hillary clinton an enabler, do you think that will hurt him with women? or do you think they'll say it's about time he called hillary clinton to the carpet in this way? >> i don't think we know how
that plays out. i think it's a risky strategy. obviously that some women will look at it that finally someone is taking her on on these issues that people have been afraid to talk about. but they're also is the possibility of losing some independence along the way. donald trump's biggest chal challenge this week is to get the republican party on the same bus as you head towards the convention in cleveland. >> dana? >> talking about hillary clinton campaign for a second. when she started out last year, she had all the money she hardly had any competition. they didn't think bernie sanders would be serious competition and now she's going to face a general election candidate in donald trump and the a convention campaign that the brooklyn folks have put together for hillary clinton. is probably not going to cut the mustard. have you hearing anything about retooling or rethinking in the hillary camp to try to be
competitive until november? >> i've talked to a lot of democrats and different strategists on the democratic side. who say that they're going to have to throw the book out and come up with a new approach. because this is not the traditional republican they'd be running against. the variables we talk about are how he campaigns and how he is drawing people just by simply talking at different events, in a way that no other republican has talked about on the trail. i think they're worried about a number of states, especially in the midwest. and sometimes in the rust belt if you will. they're worried about looking at those numbers and saying there could be some places where mitt romney lost that donald trump performs better. but overall they feel this confidence. that because of his unfavorable numbers. that they can exploit that. especially with hispanics,
blacks and women. >> two questions, bret. you look great today, i might add. >> thank you, it's spring. >> do unfavorables matter who when you're dealing with two people who seem to be unfavorable almost at the same level? and does that kind ever cancel each other out? and you see people reticent about backing donald trump. do you think that that is still based on principle or the fear that he doesn't have a shot? >> you know, politicians want to hedge bets. ant they want to see how things are lining up. you saw marco rubio saying he doesn't want to be considered for vp. and said you know he is going to support the republican nominee. but is not going to really campaign for donald trump. it's interesting to watch him walk that line. he obviously signed the pledge that he would support the republican nominee. i think paul ryan was trying to provide cover for some of his lawmakers. who are not yet supporting
donald trump. in the end, i think the republican party overall, the big unifying factor will be hillary clinton. and you're right, unfavorable numbers since they're both up there, donald trump has her beaten by a little bit. as far as unfavorable numbers. it's going to be negative. you're starting to see the exit polls coming in from west virginia, i think you're going to see it one-sided, because she may have stepped if it with the coal comments. >> so in west virginia, it's a democrat side issue. bernie sanders will likely beat her in west virginia because of the coal comments. let's remind the viewer, there's a lot of coal country in pennsylvania. there's a lot of coal country in ohio, there's coal country in kentucky, which a republican would probably win, anyway. and those are swing states there. is there an opportunity for donald trump to turn it into an election issue. not only coal, but what she
said, put coal companies out of business and coal miners out of job. i think there's a massive opportunity, especially in the swing states. >> you're right, eric. a lot of the states have felt the brunt of the epa and the brunt of obama administration regulations. a lot of companies really struggling, if not put out of business. and in all of those states you mentioned, that affects people directly. when you're talking about another four years, after eight years of an obama administration, donald trump does have an opening there. and that's one of the things that i think his campaign is going to try to exploit. >> i want to talk about the meeting coming up with speaker ryan. think that's going to be very important and pivotal in terms of the tone, the tenor, maybe some of the conversation that comes out of it. what are you hearing and what should we expect? >> there's a tentative feeling up on the hill. that this is going to be fine. and they're going to work things out.
i think they really want to see eye to eye on legislative priorities. and judging by what donald trump has said, he said to me last thursday. that he's willing to negotiate on a host of issues. pretty much every issue with congress. i think paul ryan and mitch mcconnell want their legislative agenda that they've been working on to be endorsed or backed up somewhat by the presumptive nominee. >> uh-huh. >> ebony, do you have one? >> quick, i want to ask you about young voters. that's a place where hillary clinton has struggled. we saw barack obama do well with young voters. right now the voters on the democratic side are going with bernie sanders. they're talking about unity on the republican side. from the democrats you're talking to in washington and whereever. are they talking about having unity around hillary clinton. particularly her ablt to appeal to young voters, who are very bernie or bust right now? >> he's clearly motivated
millennials. he's motivated the progressive wing of the democratic party. while hillary clinton said she wants to reach out to disaffected republicans, and people concerned on the republican side about foreign policy. she's at the same time trying to reach out to the progressive wing of the democratic party and young people. so that's a tough line to walk for hillary clinton. and her campaign. there is concern about motivating young people and i think her vp choice is probably going to be centered around that. if i had to guess. >> yeah, you mentioned we're talking about the meeting, the upcoming meeting with ryan and trump. i'm wondering, i understand how one can negotiate on terms of a deal. how do you negotiate on the principles if you're talking about things like entitlement reform. tariffs, free trade, when they're based on principles? how do you resolve that? >> that's a great question. there's a huge -- >> thank you. >> that's rare. there's a huge gulf between what
donald trump has been talking about on the trail and where some of these republicans up on capitol hill are. and that's, negotiating that, is a big difference. that's the challenge for the meeting on thursday. what's interesting is that trump is telling the "associated press" that he's narrowed his vp choices down to five or six. that's interesting. a name that popped up today up here is senator bob corker from tennessee. who is obviously a foreign policy expert and you know, it's interesting that his name is kind of surfacing today. >> 30 seconds, dana has a quick one. >> the retooling in brooklyn, if they're thinking about throwing out the playbook. how much will their new playbook include president obama to try to bridge the gulf that ebony was talking about? >> another great question. i think the clinton campaign wants to fire up young people and so they're going to tap
president obama, who by the way is really itching to get out on the campaign trail again. that's where he feels most comfortable. >> all right. brett, we appreciate you spending some time on "the five" today. martha mccallum joins us with exit polls out of nebraska and west virginia, stay tuned. a programming note, tonight we'll be back here again at midnight. live with our analysis of tonight's results. unique result analysis. they brought this on themselves.

a fox news alert. results from exit polls in nebraska and west have a ra are in and america's news room host martha mccallum has them and is here. >> i've been overseas and on the show at the same time. >> it was a fond memory. >> but to be here with you all. >>. >> you have taken us through the entire election season with the exit polls. which some of the most interesting things we can learn. what did you find out about west virginia and nebraska? >> literally the numbers are
still coming in. a few things we can take a look at. maybe we can put some of them up on the screen. the west virginia democrats are fascinating to watch in the race. because we've heard anecdotally from many that they are voting for bernie sanders. voting for bernie sanders they're going to vote for donald trump in the fall. there is this sort of change that's been happening over the last several years. where west virginia is not looking as democrat as it was at one time. west virginia democrats 2016 vote for president, 44% hillary clinton, 33% donald trump. and 21% say they're not satisfied with either of the choices that they have. so when sanders is in the mix, take a look at this one, 48% for sanders, west virginia democrats. 32% donald trump, 18% say neither so there's a significant chunk of people on the democratic side, who are undecided. these are interesting, too. because these are numbers that we are seeing for the first time out of west virginia, now that
we're this far in the process, we're looking at the head-to-head contest. as west virginians see it likely that clinton will beat trump. coming from democrats once again. 31% say very, 32% say somewhat. 63% they think it's likely that hillary will win. >> i was trying to help with the math. >> thank you. i need that. >> 31 and 32 -- tricky. >> this one is later into the exit poll. half of sanders say they would vote for trump in november over clinton. >> that's a fascinating number. that's what we heard, we heard folks at the dine they are morning at "fox & friends," i thought it was fascinating. they're talking to this gentleman and they said i'm voting against hillary clinton. and you know, i'm going to vote against hillary clinton. i'm going to vote for bernie sanders and in the fall i'm going to vote for donald trump. this is an interesting number
that eric is pointing out. that shows almost half of the sanders vote say that they will vote for trump in november? >> do you attribute that to the nooet need and quest for an outsider, someone that's not d.c. politics as usual? now you're seeing numbers that back that up. >> put it another way, you can attribute it to the dissatisfaction of the white male voter and west virginia has a high population of people like that the coal mining population. clearly there's a dissatisfaction among this group of voters. and donald trump is carving out a voter that we in many ways have not seen before. it's fascinating to see it expressed in that number. that half of the sanders vote they say next time when it comes to the general election, i'm going to vote for donald trump. >> i know a chief criticism of many of the republican base of donald trump's candidacy. has been his overall electability. i'm an independent. independents made up a third of democratic voters in west
virginia. as you're talking about donald trump's ability to get those. do you think that helps trump's argument about his overall electability that he can bring in nontraditional republicans? >> we saw quinnipiac poll. that vote is similar to what you see in west virginia, in the areas that borderline those states, we see an even match-up developing between hillary clinton and donald trump in those states it wouldn't be surprising if we saw some of that independent vote as well in west virginia. >> did you notice anything that was a big shock or different from the exit polls that you saw? >> i think there is a consistency. i think we continue to see the search for an outsider. i think we continue to see the anger factor is clearly evident in west virginia as well today. i think we're seeing a lot of similar trends we've seen in the early one. we're starting to get a little bit clearer picture. if that's clinton and trump, how do they match up and how does
the independent voter move from side to side. >> more paper coming in. >> do you want to redeem yourself with a question. >> i know you're a huge fan of great britain. i want to bring up the shy tory factor. which is when conservative vote turns out higher than what the exit polling suggests, because people are less likely to say. i'm wondering if that might translate to trump. the shy trump factor. people might not want to say they're voting for him and then they do. >> i think it's evident in this country. generally conservative voters don't talk to the exit pollers as often as liberal voters do. they're more shy, more conservative. they don't want to share their feelings with the exit pollers as they come out. i do think that will be a factor with trump. from what we have seen, they may be a little bit reluctant. the exit polls have been fairly good throughout the course of this election.
>> follow-up question, was that a good question? >> an excellent question. >> excellent question. >> i was enamored of how he pandered to that question. >> the paper that we just passed martha, under there. one of the things they said, is that in terms of what are you looking at in terms of who are you going to vote for in november. whether or not the person cares about me, whether or not they're electable. >> top candidate quality, it's so fascinating to me. no one cares who can win in november. >> time and time again we've seen these polls. 10% say it matters to me if someone can win in november. that was john kasich's big thing. we saw how that worked out for him. number one in this is cares about me. honest and trustworthy comes in at 27%. we see people interested in experience, among the experience
voters, they are often hillary clinton voters. >> the residents of west virginia have a reason to think that they've been forgotten. not even just forgotten, they have been targeted, they're the direct result of years worth of regulatory pressure to as hillary clinton said, put the coal miners out of business. it's not that coal is the only industry in west virginia, but it has been the backbone and these people provide us so hard to provide us with the electricity we want. >> can i also add it's coal right now, but next on the liberal agenda is all other forms of fossil fuel. crude oil is next, perhaps not natural gas. natural gas used to be a dirty fuel, a fossil fuel and now all of a sudden it's a clean, renewable fuel. >> and fracking was supposed to be the clean natural gas and now it's demonized because it's successful. >> the point is, at some point they'll go after another industry to go after to shut them down. >> you can almost feel when
hillary clinton said that comment that it worked in so many states and then it went slamming back in her face when she said it in a place where it wasn't well received. and that agenda is so well received in certain areas, especially the ones they had been to in the past couple of months. >> her $30 million proposal to give them money is going to work. i think what the voters are saying is that even if it comes down to trump or hillary, you might vote for trump. >> i think her positions on trade have come back to haunt her. i think that's a place where bernie sanders has been successful. i think we can expect donald trump to piggy-back off of that. >> wouldn't you expect in a place like west virginia, they should stand up and vote -- she's trying to take food off the table. money out of their wallets and then give them a handout. interviewed him actually on america's news room. a guy out of a job, he said i don't want a handout, he said i
want a job to be able to support their family. >> see you throughout the night. social network giants twitter and facebook under fire. twitter for cutting off u.s. intelligence, and facebook for allegedly cutting out conservatives, coming up on "the five." ♪ ♪ ♪ (vo) making the most out of every mile. that's why i got a subaru impreza. love. it's what makes a subaru, a subaru.

>> makes sense to me. >> west virginia, republicans and -- >> waldo. >> immigration has been consistently since january the last out of four issues, fourth out of four. >> economy and jobs, the most important thing. >> republicans as a whole -- >> i was surprised terrorism was so low. if you're in west virginia, you're probably not that worried about it. >> look at the immigration numbers, with trump, build a wall. who is going to pay for it. >> mexico, right, ebony? >> yes. >> this is what people have been talking about, it factors into national security and jobs. >> west virginia there, right? >> bump it back up to the economy. >> 54% that's high. important in that the quinnipiac poll from earlier. three big states, ohio, florida and pennsylvania, the economy by far the number one, number one issue again. and they have.
they have a they had to head on the economy, trump over clinton 54-40 in florida. 51-42 in pennsylvania. if it's the economy. back to a jobs election. he does well against her. >> it's the government spending, because it's too much or too little if. >> i would say -- >> i would say too much. >> let's take it to nebraska now for the most important issue, we can get those numbers up as well and there they are. government spending day. nebraska 30%, rankinging a the most important issue to voters in that state. >> neither candidate has talked about enough. how you are going to govern when you get there on january 20th. >> they're going to inherit a $19 trillion debt and we've had 2% growth for the last eight years, a slow recovery. how are you going to actually jump-start that? i think people in nebraska, the republicans are saying it's important to us that the government try to get, get
tightening its belt and however the president is, is going to have to work with congress to get that done. they're going to have no money with which to do anything. >> and the economy, 29% followed by terrorism, 21, and then 18%, immigration. any surprises there? >> i'm surprised that terrorism isn't -- where did government spending come out of the blue in both of these states, right? apparently americans -- these are just republicans? >> just republicans. >> republicans are going to be concerned about republican spending, that's a big issue. >> it's the issue that trump won't touch, entitlements, he won't go near entitlements, everything weighs upon terror. if you have a terror attack, none of these things matter. >> this is not unique to the republicans, we're looking at those poll there is, we saw in west virginia, the democratic voters also saying that economics are very important to them. that's an issue if you're making the argument that trump can
cross some bridges there, across the aisle, maybe that's his strongest arguments. >> we have numbers regarding the republican party. state of the republican party for nebraska republicans, united now, 3%. an abysmal number. divided and will unite. 51% feeling optimistic, will remain divided, 45%. greg, you're a kind of a cranky individual. >> this reflects everything. it reflects the way the world is right now. peel who feel strongly one way and other people strongly the other. people saying i want to stick to my principles and other people saying no, get on the train. we see it here and out there. >> so much rides on what happens the next few weeks. >> how about thursday? a lot will ride on thursday. >> i think it tags a little while, i think it takes a while for public sentiment to get reflected in polls. >> and also like real feelings, charles talking to charles
payne, it feels like grief. i think it's a real emotion, it takes time to get past the shorks disbelieve anger and eventual acceptance. >> well as ahead, a controversial new move by twitter that's going to hamper america's war on terror. we'll explain, next, stay with us. hey, jesse. who are you? i'm vern, the orange money retirement rabbit from voya. vern from voya? yep, vern from voya. why are you orange? that's a little weird. really? that's the weird part in this scenario? look, orange money represents the money you put away for retirement. save a little here and there, and over time, your money could multiply. see? ah, ok. so, why are you orange? funny. see how voya can help you get organized at voya.com.

these are published tweets, as private as limb rick ericks on c bathroom wall. twitter just stopped our agents from tracking terrorists as they strike. so twitter is not acting on principle, it just prefers the illusion of bravery over fighting jihadism. that's what makes twitter so cool. what's not cool? minnesota. a goofy state that totally nerded out during world war ii by helping the war effort. there, 3-m sandpaper was reworked for plane wings and ship decks. hormel sent food to allies. general mills made begin sights and pillsberry made two new soups. cargill made 18 ships. a minnesota physiologist invented k-rations, minnesota, one state of 50. i picked it to show what you ordinary people did in
extraordinary times. unlike twitter, who think they're extraordinary people in ordinary times. they aren't, screw 'em. i got some of that information on minnesota from a great article by kathy werzer, a reporter from minnesota. that's one state, but everybody pitched in. for some reason, dana, twitter, it's like if they pitch in, it makes it look like they're -- >> playing favorites? >> no, part of the problem. want to be david, not goliath. >> right, although but what they do have to understand is that the enemy is using the tools and intel services need information. intel services can't do anything if they don't have information. and think twitter should try to figure out a way to be part of the solution. >> they should be. >> i'm sure they would tell me they're part of the solution that they do all sorts of things, the story to me is troubling. >> do you think this is a front? >> they're pushing back on open sourcing, but you can open source, you can get this information fairly easily.
what i understand is they're pushing back because it's a government agency. don't want government agencies like the c.i.a. to access it. or have this company sell it to government agencies like the c.i.a. i don't know why they would. unless there's some way of getting into some of the direct messaging. if it's just the stuff that people post on twitter, i can't imagine why anyone would have a problem with it. if they have a way to directly access the direct messaging, it would be an invasion of privacy. if it's open-source stuff, that's wide open for everyone. >> nobody's direct message is worth reading except anthony wiener, right? >> do you have those, kimberly? >> untrue, erroneous. >> twitter cannot afford to be on the wrong side. next terror attack, right? they have to get on board here and be part of the solution. especially when you see the active way that isis is able to
capitalize and recruit and spread jihad on twitter, on social media. so they're going to be in a position then to be, fall in disfavor like google and apple and some of the terror obstructionists, trying to prevent our war on terror from succeeding. like dana said, it's crucial to be able to get the information to analyze it, to prevent the next attack. do you want twitter standing in the way or even more importantly, on the side of isis and the caliphate when they should be on the side of intelligence agencies? >> i think this is complete nonsense, greg, i think twit certificate being completely hypocritical here. i believe in privacy rights, i believe generally speaking most of us have already sacrificed those privacy rights. some of it voluntarily, some of it not. we should at least be safer for it it's simple to me. if we're going to gut the fourth amendment and sacrifice most of our private rights, anyway,
shouldn't we feel safer? if you've stripped us of our rights to be private, anyway? >> are we missing something? it's literally just this company is just aggregating? >> it's the optics. >> it's about how it looks. they said it's the optics. >> you can access this yourself. >> but they don't -- >> put a search on terror or isis or whatever and basically data-mine for yourself. what's the difference? >> they don't want to hand it to them. >> reason is that twitter is in a slump. it's great press. when the press says twitter stands up to the government and won't share this information so it makes twitter look like they are david -- the white knight. >> they need good press. >> now they're the warrior of privacy? that's completely hypocriticahy. >> i think we covered a lot there. >> well done. >> thank you very much. want to talk about anything else? >> you have a tease. >> ahead, ted cruz getting back

ted cruz is flirting with the idea of getting back in the presidential race if he fares well in the primaries. >> we've suspended the campaign because i can see no viable path to victory. let's be clear, we're not going to win nebraska today, there should be no mystery, no excitement in that. we've withdrawn from the campaign. it's in the hands of the voters, if circumstances change, we will always assess changed circumstances. but i appreciate the eagerness and excitement of all the folks in the media to see me back in the ring. you may have to wait a little bit longer. >> we heard from marco rubio earlier. now have his feelings about the donald changed now that he's the presumptive gop nominee? >> the policy differences and reservations about donald's campaign are well established, said them often.
i hope they'll be addressed. i don't view myself as a guy who will be sitting here the next six months, taking shots at him. people know where i stand, they know what i feel, they know what our differences are, he's the presumptive nominee of the republican party. i respect that and accept it. but that's not going to change the reservations that i have about his campaign or the policies he's established. >> is this rubio letting me know we need to get ready for marco rubio becomes republican savior, take two? >> i think he's playing it safe. i think he's walking the tightwire. >> he signed a pledge on your word, fine. but he said i've got differences, hoe you runs the campaign on policy positions. nevertheless, marco has to be careful. he's not going back into the senate like ted cruz. what's his next play? does he want to say politically
relevant? i wouldn't throw off the buzz about he could be considered a vice presidential candidate. fine, okay, that's nice to be considered. maybe you want in the future so voters on the trump train to be supportive of you. no need to burn bridges and ask for ted cruz -- what? like whoa. >> ted cruz talks about changing circumstances. is there a possibility for a changed result at this point? >> no. in it all started because he was on a radio interview with glenn beck. i thought he was joking. hey what if you win nebraska and cruz, i thought he was joking back. of course everyone made huge news out of it it doesn't matter -- ted, that's great. go clarify, which he did. down. he said no, i think donald trump should pick someone who more ascribes to what he wants to do here. he never really said i'm not
going to do it he said i'm in the going to run for governor, i'm going to finish my term in the senate back out. i think it's wide open for marco rubio, it would be great for marco rubio, if donald trump wins the presidency, marco rubio is young enough to be the incumbent. to come in and say hey -- >> that's a scenario. but dana, there's another scenario. that trump doesn't win this thing in november. is that what we're seeing from marco rubio? that's how i interpreted it. that he distanced himself from trump. >> i see it as marco rubio doing his first interview, which isn't easy after a grueling campaign and a loss where he disappointed a lot of people who are still very loyal to him. i don't think he's making any plans, he's not being calculated. he's just being sincere and he's being principled, saying i got to look at myself in the mirror every night. i'm not going to make a decision right now.
