[ cheers and applause ] hillary clinton visit ed several churches in queens. so i am humbly asking for your support. she needs a victory to halt bernie sanders' winning streak. while delegate math is still stacked against him he is flushed with cash and showing no signs of exiting >> i believe we have a real path to victory. sanders may have backed away from questioning whether clinton is qualified to be president, but he is not backing down. >> maybe her judgment is not quite as high as it should be. >> i don't have any, anything
3:02 am
negative to say about him. i expect to be the nominee. >> reporter: even as sanders' aide predict a contested convention, clinton says her sights are set on the republicans, facing the far more likely open convention scenario. and sanders found an unlikely ally today in donald trump, who was in rochester, railing against the emphasis of delegates over voters. >> so i watch bernie. he wins that if say he has no chance. why doesn't he have a chance? because the system is corrupt. and it's worse on the republican side. because i am up millions of votes on cruz, millions. >> y'all have been part of something incredible. >> reporter: ted cruz's colorado sweep this weekend shows he is long understood the importance of securing supporters as delegates. trump's convention strategist says he is not playing fair. >> you see the tactic, gestapo tactics. the scorched earth tactics. >> gestapo tactics. >> how about the "boston globe"? it's useless, sold for $1. >> reporter: in another twist, the "boston globe" published its

3:04 am
trump's lead by doing that. >> not just the primaries. this week, ted cruz got more delegates in colorado state convention largely because he was better organized on the ground. >> the really interesting thing here, jeff, is that when you start fighting for delegates. these campaigns are looking to a potentially open or brokered convention. they want the most loyal supporters in those delegates slots. so that if there is a floor fight, if delegates start arguing on the floor of the convention, it's their most loyal supporters who were there fighting for them. >> trump still holds a solid lead of 200 delegates over ted cruz. could the state contests stall his path further at this point? >> yeah, the trick for everyone trying to catch donald trump is to try to slow him down enough that it denies him the majority of the delegates. and in order to do that, they have to not only cherry pick delegate counts here and there as we go through the states. but, donald trump's path is now very close to the majority he has got to keep winning and keep winning big, or he will fall short. >> anthony salvanto. thank you.

3:30 am
welcome to the "cbs overnight news," i'm jeff glor. new york state holds its primary a week from tomorrow. candidates are spending time and money in the empire state. ted cruz trails donald trump and john kasich in new york. he won 13 delegates in colorado over the weekend. on the democratic side -- bernie sanders won the wyoming caucuses saturday night. but due to state rules he and hillary clinton came away with seven delegates. sanders spoke with john dickerson. >> is the victory in wyoming kind of a picture of where the campaign is at this moment? a win for you, which sounds good, then you look at delegate numbers and split it with hillary clinton. >> john that's the eighth victory we have won in nine contests.
3:31 am
there is no question, i think that we have the momentum. if you look at national polling, where we started this campaign, we were 60 points down. some of the recent polls have us, national polls have us ahead of secretary clinton. we are closing the gap in new york, pennsylvania, california. i am feeling really great. and, and i believe that we have a real path to victory. and that at the end of the day we are going to win this. >> let's talk about the path to victory though. because the you still have to make up the deficit in pledge delegates that hillary clinton has the. so the people who look at the math here say that that path requires you to have, you really need to, really, really big wins. do you think that's probable? how does that happen? what's the path? >> let me just say this, john. we have cut our lead by a third in the last three or so weeks. i think we are now 214 delegates behind. we used to be more than 300 delegates behind. we have got some big states coming up. look when we began this campaign. we had to deal with the south,
3:32 am
the deep south, a pretty conservative part of the country. not a stronghold for me. we are out of the south now. heading to new york. heading west. i think you are going to see us do very, very well in many of the states. and the reason is -- that our message is resonating. people really are tired of establishment politics and establishment economics. they do not believe that a candidate who receives huge money from wall street or special interests like secretary clinton really will be capable of addressing the major crises facing the working families of the country. what i have been saying is that we are waging what we call a political revolution. and what that means is that no president, not bernie sanders or anybody else, can do what has to be done for the middle-class of this country. raise the minimum wage. pay equity, health care for all.
3:33 am
make sure we are not the only country that does not guarantee paid family and medical leave. making public colleges and universities tuition free. i can't do that alone? what we need is a strong political movement where millions of people, working people, young people, stand up, fight back, and demand the government that represents all of us not just wealthy campaign contributors. a contemporary example of where that its happening. i have believed for a while now that we need a $15 an hour minimum wage. secretary clinton supported a $12 an hour minimum wage. what you are seeing all across this country is workers standing up fighting back and now you got california, oregon, new york state, passing $15 an hour minimum wage because people demanded it. that's what our campaign is about. >> let me ask you about political movements. i was thinking about the 1980 democratic race. jimmy carter won in the delegates. ted kennedy said he had a movement.
3:34 am
he contested it though he had not won the majority. took it to the convention. they had a big fight. though kennedy lost. he won the platform fights. he really, used that moment to, to get across his message. have you contemplated or thought about doing anything like that? >> well, obviously, we will play an active role in shaping the platform. and what we are going to fight for is to demand that at time of massive income and wealth inequality, the wealthiest people and largest corporations start paying their fair share of taxes. we will demand vigorous action in combatting climate change. so we leave this planet in a healthy way for our kids. we are going to take on the pissue of poverty in america. that very few people talk about. it is unacceptable to me we have the highest rate of childhood poverty of almost any major country on earth. we are going to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure and create $13 million jobs improving our water systems and waste water plants and roads and bridges.
3:35 am
those are the, use that we will fight for to get on the platform, whether i am the nominee or whether secretary clinton is the nominee. >> what kennedy did, he contested the actual nomination to get his message across. is that something you have contemplated? >> well, our plan right now is to win this thing. and again, i think we are looking pretty good. in new york, in pennsylvania, in california, in oregon. i think we have a real shot to end up with more delegates. and the other point, john. if you look at most of the national polling. what you find is that bernie sanders won stronger against donald trump and against other republicans, some times by pretty large numbers than does hillary clinton. you are going to see, you are going to see a lot of delegates wanting to beat trump. saying, you know what maybe bernie is the guy to do that. >> where are we on the question if hillary clinton is qualified to be president. you said she wasn't. then you said she was.
3:36 am
give us the bottom line? >> well we were attacked harshly by the clinton campaign who suggested that i was not qualified. and weep responded by saying, you know what? a candidate who receives an enormous all. money from special interests. a candidate who voted for the war in iraq, a candidate who -- who voted for virtually every disastrous trade policy which of course does millions of jobs, well you know what -- maybe her judgment its not quite as high as it should be. but, john, i want to get away from this stuff. i respect hillary clinton. known her for 25 years the what i want is debate on the realer use impacting the middle-class of the country. >> do you think her judgment is irrevokably broken in a way that makes her incapable of doing the job of being president? >> no, look, she has enormous experience. everybody that knows her, knows she is very intelligent. but i think her judgment, for example on foreign policy. let's be clear.
3:37 am
the war in iraq the worst foreign policy blunder in the modern history of america. i heard the same evidence that secretary clinton did. sunny was in the senate. i was in the house. i helped lead the on session to that war. she supported that war. i think that is something that the american people might want to take into consideration when you think about the judgment of the candidates. >> what the clinton campaign would say, they want people to take a look at your interview with the new york dailies news on the core issue of the big banks. "the washington post," "mar sanders's shocking ignorance of his core issue." what its your response? >> let me be clear, "the washington post," not one of my strongest supporters. hillary clinton and i have a difference of opinion. i believe that when three out of the four largest bank tuesday, are bigger than they were when we bailed them out because they were too big to fail. i think they should be broken up. i think we should re-establish a 21st, legislation, supported by john mccain and elizabeth warren. something i think is the right thing to do. >> the "cbs overnight news" will be right back. new york could play a
3:38 am
3:39 am
3:40 am
new york could play a starring role in donald trump's quest for the white house. looking for a landslide victory in his home state and competes against ted cruz and john kasich. kasich discussed his strategy on "face the nation." >> governor, let's start with your path to the nomination. don't you have to win more delegates than you have been winning so far? >> yeah, we are going to win more delegates. that is our strategy. here in new york we are rung in second place. here where i am right now, the town of greece. this congressional district. running even with donald trump. and the crowd are growing, john. i mentioned. i had 3,000, 4,000 people here today this morning. we will accumulate delegates. we will go into the convention. we believe, with momentum. >> what happened in wisconsin though.
3:41 am
you had a smaller number of combatants. in the midwest, good for you. and you left the state with no delegates? >> look, i think wisconsin and the republican part is far more conservative than what we saw in michigan or ohio. secondly it turned into a stop trump effort. and ted cruz spent over $1 million smearing me up there. we didn't spend the resources to fight back. we were prepared to live with that result. now we will be in new york, pennsylvania. the proof will be in the pudding. we will accumulate delegates. you will see it. go to the convention. the interesting thing. more and more, people, the political establishment is beginning to look at two things. one who, can win in the fall? i am the only one that consistently beat hillary clinton in the fall. and there is great concern in the republican party that we are not just talking about the presidential race. that frankly if we get blown out in the fall, which i think we would with both cruz and trump. we could lose the united states senate. we would lose seats all right way from the state house to the
3:42 am
courthouse. and i think this is going to be a big consideration at the convention. secondly, actually try to figure out who can be a good president. >> you will go into the convention with the least amount of delegates probably of the three people who are in this contest still. is your main competition then cruz and trump, or is it, you know people are talking paul ryan, some people even have talked about mitt romney. who do you see your competition? if it is as wide open as it will need to be for you to win? >> well, i don't know it is going to have -- look here is what is going to happen, john. i don't want to get into all the process. i think you will see significant changes in the delegate voting after the first ballot. and we have like the best people who can know how to manage a convention. the key for me there is going to make sure that i am able to visit all of these delegations. as you know, the process of picking delegates now varies from state to state. so it is going to be very interesting. we will have a full court press.
3:43 am
we have the people that knowhow to do this. the key for me is to be there. here's what is interesting. i amount second choice of the cruz people and, and also the trump people. it's interesting. and also, as you know, we have had ten contested conventions. and only three times has the the front-runner won. and i don't want to go back in history. too far. but i think old honest abe went into the convention, third or fourth. and came out the winner. so, we'll see. >> people are, people are looking at this now and they, they thing the people who got more delegates shouldn't those delegates have some value? you will go in with fewer delegates than anybody else. >> yeah, sure. you have to meet the magic number. sort of look when you take a test. if an a is 90. you get 85, you don't get an a. look, i have been talking about this for a month even on your show. >> governor, you are going in there with a 60? >> wait a minute. we don't know what we have yet, john the we will half to have
3:44 am
momentum and accumulate more delegates. we will. our strategy is to continue to move forward to accumulate delegates. and so, we'll see what happens out in new york, pennsylvania, maryland, connecticut, we'll see what happens there. so don't be trying to predict how many i will have. because i am not going to predict it. i will have more than i have right now. we will be viable. john, at the end of the day, i'm the only person who consistently beats hillary clinton in the fall. okay. are we going to pick somebody that can't win. that would be nuts. >> let me ask you about hillary clinton. debate on the democratic side this week about whether she is qualified to be president? do you think she is? >> well it's not my job to be running around questioning people's qualifications. let the voters decide. look, i beat her in virtually every state all of the time. my biggest challenge now is of course the republican primary. and we just have off to keep moving on it. and we get into the fall, you
3:45 am
talk to democrats, experts, they say, kasich can attract crossover votes. conservative democrats, and independents. and i have demonstrated an ability to do that in the general election so. weep just got to got to that point. i am not going to start saying this person is not qualified. or start attacking their, i just don't want to go there. >> let me ask you a question about a -- something that your colleague, governor in north carolina did. he signed a law in north carolina that banned anti-discrimination protections based on sexual orientation and mandated transgender people use public bathrooms based on the sex indicated on their birth certificates. would you have signed that law? >> probably not. i mean, look, we are not having this issue in our state about this whole religious liberty. i believe that religious institutions ought to be protected and be able to be in a position of where they can -- they can live out their, their deeply held religious purposes. but when you get beyond that it gets to be a trickier to.
3:46 am
and -- tricky is not the right word. it can become a contentious issue. in our state, we are not facing this. everybody needs to take a deep breath. respect one another. the minute we start trying to write laws. things become more polarized. become more complicated. obviously i don't want to force people to violate their deeply held religious convictioned. we would have to see what that is all about. i wouldn't have signed that law from everything i know. i haven't studied it. but the governor of georgia, vetoed another one. look, you got to see what the laws are and what the proposals are and why you need to write a law. why do we have to write hey law have ever time we turn around in this country? can't we figure tout just how to get along a little bit better and respect one another? that's where we ought to be. everybody chill out. get over it. if you have a disagreement with somebody. that's where i am now, john. unless there is something that pops up, i am not inclined to sign anything. >> all right, governor john
3:47 am
kasich. appreciate you being with us. >> thank you. new york city the media capital of the world which means plenty of photo-ops. as chip reid reports. they don't always work out as the candidates plan. >> reporter: they say a picture is worth 1,000 words. but for politicians doing photo-ops, a picture can be worth 1,000 unpleasant words. it happens when they try too hard to look like regular people. for hillary clinton, a trip on the new york subway got her a one way ticket to the bad photo op hall of fame. it should have been easy. but it took hillary clinton five tries before she finally cleared the subway turnstyle. >> out of her element. >> it is so convenient. just the best way to get around. >> the democratic front-runner isn't the first to fail at the photo-op. vice president dan quayle wanted to look smart and tried his hand at spelling potato.
3:48 am
[ indiscernible ] >> reporter: in 2000, republican presidential candidate. gary bower flipped a pancake and himself. >> oh, no. oh, no. >> who can forget this photo op of richard nixon. >> only richard nixon would walk on the beach with a full suit and black shoes on. >> he worked on half a dozen gop presidential campaigns. >> what are the riskiest kind of photo-ops. >> children, animals. you don't know what is going to happen. try to kiss the baby is the baby going to cry. is the dog going to have an unfortunate accident on the set. >> reporter: even with careful planning, accidents happen. in 1988, democratic nominee michael dukakis' team put him in a tank to bolster national security credentials. it tanked. >> he looked like the character in the peanuts cartoon. as we all know.
3:49 am
he worked on the dukakis campaign and says it is risky for a candidate to try to appear ordinary look when the media mistakenly reported president george h.w. bush didn't know what a scanner was. >> even though he didn't do anything wrong. it hurt him. >> it hurt him. and chip it made him look like he was not tonal, not connecting, he was distracted. a distracted candidate. >> if you are not a regular guy don't try to pretend you are a regular guy. >> the challenge is that none of the folks really running for office are regular guys. he says photo-ops involve a lot of planning. the goal is to make the moment the picture of a day. a photo-op gone bad can stick around a lot longer than a day. >> the "cbs overnight news" will be right back.
