the u.s. the cdc saying it will be, quote, scarier than they thought. we'll show you the map. 30 states where they say, be prepared. good evening. and it's great to have you with us here on a monday night. and we begin with the race for the white house and the all-out battle under way now for new york. donald trump on home turf, but it's not just new york he's concerned about now. it's the likelihood of a contested convention. and tonight, he's now saying the system is corrupt. that he's being cheated out of delegates. and asking, shouldn't the person with the most votes at the end win? ted cruz is feverishly working to make sure he's the one with the best strategy, if there's a convention fight. and the new poll just in tonight, here in new york, showing donald trump at 54%, far ahead of john kasich and ted cruz. but we have learned of two people who won't be voting for trump in the new york primary -- two of his own children.
5:32 pm
abc's jonathan karl with their explanation tonight. >> reporter: donald trump is fuming, calling the republican primary process, quote, rigged and crooked. >> but the system, folks, is rigged. it's a rigged, disgusting, dirty system. >> reporter: today, trump even tweeted this video of a man in colorado, burning his republican party registration. >> i've been a republican all my life, but i will never be a republican again. >> reporter: his name is larry lindsey, a trump supporter who told abc news he was turned away when he tried to attend the state party convention in colorado springs. >> for liberty. for ted cruz. for freedom. 272. >> reporter: trump didn't show up in colorado. and his team was out-organized by senator ted cruz, who walked away with all of colorado's 34 delegates. >> let me tell you a little secret, as far as our country is concerned. we have a democracy, but we've got to keep our democracy, and
5:33 pm
we're going to do that. >> reporter: today, cruz was gloating. >> donald has been yelling and screaming. a lot of whining. i'm sure some cursing and some late-night fevered tweeting. and the latest thing he's seized upon is when people vote against him, they're stealing the election. it's a really odd notion. what is this democracy of which you speak? >> reporter: but today, there are new signs of trump's disorganization closer to home. the candidate admitting his own children, ivanka and eric, won't be able to vote in next week's new york primary. >> they were unaware of the rules and they didn't register in time. so, they feel very, very guilty. so, eric and ivanka, i guess, won't be voting. >> reporter: especially embarrassing because of this -- >> hi, south carolina, i'm ivanka trump.
5:34 pm
hi, nevada, i'm ivanka trump. aloha, hawaii, i'm ivanka trump. >> reporter: ivanka has been doing videos throughout the campaign reminding supporters to register and vote. >> you need to actually be registered as a republican. you just write down the name trump, and you are done. and that's it. very exciting. >> and jon karl with us live from albany tonight. so, ivanka and eric trump won't be able to vote here. some pointing to this, saying, this demonstrates trump's bigger issue, jon, that he's going to need a strong strategy, better organization if he wants a victory at a contested convention. >> reporter: trump has nearly 2 million more votes than ted cruz, but the simple fact is that when it comes to that grass roots organizing, needed to actually select the delegates that will go to the convention, the cruz campaign is miles ahead. trump's advisers privately acknowledge they have work to do to catch up, and david, they insist they will. >> jon karl live from a trump event at this hour, upstate. jon, thank you. now, to the democratic side tonight. hillary clinton needing a win in new york after a string of losses. but as clinton battles bernie sanders, she has revealed

5:36 pm
and scrutiny here in new york, senator sanders has had trouble answering questions. >> reporter: with more delegates at stake here in new york than the last five contests combined, sanders is in desperate need of a big win. the vermont senator in an empire state of mind at coney island, packing in the crowds today in albany -- >> and with your help, on april 19th, we're going to win here in new york. >> reporter: -- and releasing this ad, painting him as the real new yorker in the race. >> values forged in new york. brooklyn-born, native son. >> reporter: clinton's efforts to win here, ripe for teasing. >> god, i love being back in the fat apple, my home state, except for illinois and arkansas, but they already voted for me, so, we're cool. we're cool. >> reporter: not to mention that real-life subway fail, made for "snl."
5:37 pm
>> the best way to get around. >> we've seen that in new york before. cecilia vega joins us live tonight. and cecilia, hillary clinton has lost the last seven contests. she needs a win. she might get some help because of the rules in new york? >> reporter: that's right, david. new york has a closed primary. meaning only democrats can vote. and bernie sanders actually has a poor track record in these closed primaries. he's lost all three of them. hillary clinton is banking on that big win here. >> all right, cecilia vega with us tonight. cecilia, thanks, as always. and just one more note here before we move on. vice president joe biden was asked his thoughts about a female president. his staff, you can hear here, stepping in. >> there's no problem. we're going to be able to elect a woman in this country. >> would you like to see us elect a woman in this country? >> i would like to see a woman elected. >> that's it. >> no, no, no, that's all right. no, i'd like to -- no, i don't mind -- i'm not getting into that. >> i'd like to ask one more question. >> the president and i are not going to endorse, because we both, when we ran, said, let the
5:38 pm
party decide. but gosh almighty, they are both qualified. hillary is overwhelmingly qualified to be president. >> vice president joe biden weighing in tonight. we move on here to the severe weather we're watching at this hour. 14 million americans in the threat zone right now. and this super cell across the sky there near vernon, texas. giant hail in bowie, texas, smashing right through car windows. and a church on fire from a possible lightning strike in eldorado, arkansas. that area under a tornado warning at the time. let's get right to meteorologist rob marciano, because all of this extends up to the northeast overnight, so, a large part of the country being effected. >> reporter: yeah, same front, david, and some areas getting several rounds of severe weather. already, tennis ball-sized hail just north of dallas. you see that cell rolling down to the southeast. watch box up there until 9:00 p.m. all these storms kind of fan out and spread out towards the south and east overnight. mostly a hail and rain threat. could see an isolated tornado early on. and then the rain across the northern part of the front comes
5:39 pm
into the northeast cities. a messy morning commute, but it will be rain and no snow, finally getting temperatures up into the 60s, about where we should be for this time of year, david. >> but a tough drive tomorrow morning. rob, thank you. we move next to new orleans tonight, a city in mourning after the death of a super bowl champion. will smith, former saints defensive end, killed in what authorities say right now appears to be a case of possible road rage. the man who admits to shooting him in court today. his lawyer telling a different side of the story. abc's ryan smith in new orleans tonight. >> is she shot? >> reporter: tonight, new details emerging about the shocking death of former nfl star will smith. police charging the alleged shooter, cardell hayes, with second degree murder, saying he shot smith in the torso and back. and new video of the chaotic moments after. one voice ringing out, his wife racquel, caught in the crossfire. >> my leg has been shot! >> reporter: 11:30 saturday night, police receive the call, shots fired. hayes' hummer rear-ending smith's mercedes suv. the men exchanging words.
