reactions of joe benson. and our wall street journal polls. it is all here on andrea mitchell reports. good day, happy election day. i am andrea mitchell. it is primary day in new york. the stakes could not be higher. at least 95 and total delegates for r the republicans. a big win for hillary clinton is crucial tonight. donald trump is guaranteed an overwhelming victory in this home state according to all the polls. both front runners have suffering losses in recent contests. new polls of warning signs ahead for both party front runners. we begin with our correspondence. nbc hally jackson is covering
ted cruz and nbc kristen welker is following hillary clinton and kasie hunt with bernie sanders. jacob, let's start with you with the trump campaign talking about major over haul. what does your report tells you. >> reporter: it was three weeks ago that trump hired convention manager, a big hire and we heard of policy speeches that's going to come. then a couple of weeks ago, we started to see changes in the candidate himself on the trail that his speeches were much shorter, he actually showed up on time or early to rallies, small things. he always had localized statistics of unemployment and a sharper message and rick wylie and now we are hearing of this big new shift that's on top of all of it which is now we have one of the top campaign
officials resigning, steward jollies. >> they are planing the campaign on spending big in upcoming states. $20 million allocated for that. trump likes to brag about how little he spends less than anybody on ads and on anything. now, they have this big new budget. we have somebody reports only to the bus. that's trump. >> it is a shift as i said is taking place over the last few weeks. it is starting to happen, a lot of people says of all the talk of change, he never did anything and now he has over the past few weeks. now we are going to see a different kind of campaign run and reaching out to delegates. new ads in california, it is no doubt, major ship, andrea. >> it is, jacob rasco, thank you
for your reporting. >> he ends up in the bronx and he was booed in the bronx. >> reporter: booed in the bronx and asked about new york values and you saw him saying hey, i was talking about liberal democratic values. that was not he said back in january. with that said, new york could always look like an uphill battle for ted cruz. it was not a state where he would be a natural fit. of course, you should win big in new york. ted cruz won big in texas. with that said, cruz did not play here necessarily as much as he could have. he was in western new york and upstate new york, he moved fairly to other states, mid atlantic states. places like pennsylvania and maryland. he's not looking to new york as a place he can peal off many delegates from trump.
john kasich has a similar strategy. cruz is polling behind john kasich in new york. i spoke with john kasich's strategists this morning, they are looking to campaign in new york. i will tell you delaware is not a place for john kasich campaign seizing themselves. it is a winner takes all states. john kasich has been eliminated. for cruz tonight, if donald trump finishes as strong as expected with 90 delegates or all of them. then for cruz, he need to win 98% of the remaining delegates in order to lock up the domination. it is an impossibility, the campaign is looking to compete hard as this goes to a second ballot. that's why you see cruz working that delegate strategy. >> hally, jackson.
>> christian welker. how does the clinton campaign define victory? they are ahead and don't expect to lose new york. what is victory? >> reporter: they would say a win is a win. what they are aiming for tonight andrea is a double dames point bridge digit win. that would put this race out of reach mathematically for senator sanders. that's their target goal. that's of course, their homet n hometown, that's the place they voted in the past 16 years. she's really run a campaign based on the fact that she's from new york and served two terms as senator here and casting herself as the democratic that got things done. she's spent a number of days going after bernie sanders for that daily news.
and andrea, we have seen this race gets really early between the democrats yesterday no exception when senator sanders accused hillary clinton. the hillary clinton campaign categorically denied that and calling the allegation destructi destructive. of course, the challenge for secretary clinton if he wins the nation is how to unify the parties moving forward. 30% says that they'll not get behind her in the general election. >> kasie hunt, is there any signs they'll scale back and start to be less aggressive in the criticism. this lawsuit surprised a lot of people as it goes in 20 or 30 state parties that's aligned with these victory joints, fund
raising groups. it would appeal to their supporters who call for fight for establishment. >> reporter: in a word, there are no plans for team sanders to scale back at this point. this is something that animates a lot of people who has been supporting sanders and who have been giving him money. it is particularly frustrates the party because bernie sanders has not jumped into raising money for other democrats as much. he supported three house candidates, all of who is supporting him and many cases were primary more establishment candidates and harry reid in nevada. i know from sanders' sources they say he made up his mind after nevada that he was going to go forward and stay in this
race no matter what all the way until the district of columbia votes on june 14th. i personally would be surprised if anything change from that plan and i think you know you are seeing a little bit of a back and forth within the sanders campaign about the best tone to take and the best way to approach the back half of this race. the margins tonight will help show some of that to us. you have also seen sanders is changing his campaign style a little bit the last couple of days. walking ovall over in new york. that's a switch from one he's not been so engaged from campaigning. >> to all of you, thank you very much. enjo enjoy election day. >> now, let's bring in nbc's mark murray to break down the
numbers. >> andrea, almost, the voter and the countries are saying none of the above. 68% of all american voters end up saying they could not see themselves voting for donald trump and you have 61% of them saying the same thing for ted cruz and hillary clinton. andrea, one of those three people will end up being the president of the united states unless something shocking absolutely happens. the question becomes, how does that person ends up governing. these are numbers that we have not seen before. americans are saying they don't like any of these people right now. >> what do you attribute hillary clinton's negatives just jumping up the last month. >> it is democrats and particularly bernie sanders' voters who's becoming much more negative for him. that's up from our past poll and to put that in perspective, we
never saw that kind of number when in the bruising 2008 between hillary clinton and barack obama. their favorable numbers were in the positive territorial by their arrival side. there is a situation and casey was aleutilotting how the sande campaign going forward. you can tell that this competitive race as it is going on has start to damage her. >> i don't think there is any questions that he will stay in this race until june 14th, which is the final primary in dc and through california where they think they got a big shot. how he handles it and what kind of message and the speech he gives in college state pennsylvania in penn state campus tonight, depending on what the numbers are. if she wins big tonight and he comes out aggressive against her on policy but against her. that's going to be a strong signal that this is not going to
end nicely. >> the other signal is the lawsuit they had against the dnc over the over filing situation and as well as what kristen and casey were talking about is criticisms on the fund raising joint committee. it is the same joint committee as obama had in 2008 and 2012. >> sanders campaign signed an agreement, i understand, according to the dnc, they signed an agreement but they have not used it. they signed for the agreement for the same kind of committee. there is no question that the dnc has put it up on the scale in favor of clinton. they are in her corner even though they are saying they are being down in the middle of this. let's talk about trump and how trump is viewed by john kasich voters. >> we talked about how democratic races got nastier. it does not compare of what we see on the republican side.
>> 71% had a negative view of donald trump and 56% of voters had a negative view of ted cruz. this is going to go all the way to the republican convention. that's going to be hard to unify the party. >> republicans have a lot more work to do. >> mark, you are the expert. on the democratic side which is a closely fought race tonight. democratic parties are a lot more liberal than 2008. that benefited bernie sanders and want to see how it compares to 200 8. if those exit polls look like 2008 when it come to moderate verses liberals, that to me is kind of a pretty, clear win for clinton. we'll see, that'll be a big clue looking at liberals verses moderates.
>> early on in the evening and the polls close at 9:00. mark murray. >> thank you. >> coming up we'll go live with houston where rescues are under way of a shistoric flooding killing at least five people and damaging hundreds of homes. that's next on andrea mitchell reports, on msnbc. umm, maybe keep your hands on theontroller. look out!! ohhhhhhhhhh... you know what, i'm just gonna email it to you. yeah that's probably safer. ok, cool. and i quit smoking with chantix. i always came back to smoking. i was absolutely frustrated, absolutely. i did not think chantix would work as well as it did. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix reduced

buffalo bile which is the end of downtown. it is spilling onto the sidewalk here in the downtown area and any amount of rain that we get from this point forward, is going to flow here in the houston area and causing the same type of flooding all over again. we saw flooding at least in 100 neighborhoods across the city yesterday. some homes had as much as four feet of water in them. here are some pictures recently from the past few minutes, helicopter shots of still the hardest hit areas. we are seeing high water rescues from apartment complexes and people who don't have water in their homes are now finding a very muddy mess. the death toll stands at five. all five of those deaths came from people in vehicles that went in high water. you always hear turn around, don't drown, those that did not do that in this case, paid the ultimate price. now, we look at this afternoon, we are expecting 70 or 80%
chance of further thunderstorms. it people are dealing with the after effect of what happened sunday night into monday. we'll continue to watch this. >> thank you so much, the scene is horrific. in afghanistan, 28 people were killed. following up by storming the government national agency head quarters. the attackers were pinned down after a four hour assaults. the taliban is claiming responsibility for the attack. in ecuador, the urgent search for survivors continue at this hour after the devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake. a drill managed to free eight people who had been trapped under the rubble for more than
32 hours. 413 people killed in the earthquake so far including one american and officials expect that number is expected to rise. coming up about the controversial convention rules that donald trump is attacking. we'll explain it all right here on andrea mitchell reports on msnbc. here's to breaking more glass ceilings in golf and everywhere else. kpmg. continuing our commitment to the next generation of women leaders.

walking the members through how conventions are organized and what other conventions are standing committees and how those committees are selected. >> paul ryan, the house speaker, luke, making no bones of the fact that the rules are rules and this is clearly a slap at donald trump and you have been talking to people who were in the meeting. priebus mentioned that the rules have not been rigged. >> reporter: yeah, andrea, gop leadership have been getting a lot of questions. that's on the mind of a lot of people around the country and at town hall conference calls last night. he was getting questions of the rnc delegate process. that's because of what donald trump said and what ted cruz have said about the delegate
rules. last week trump supporters, said that the game could appear to be rigged. that's something that really try to tamper down. priebus had the meeting with the house gop conference, the nominees must get 137 and also explain that there are two different rules committee something that the national audience that we have talked about will learn a lot about. the rnc party rules committee and a separate convention rules committee made up of democrats. the process will be much out in the open. priebus also said that he's going to be a new rutral umpire. andrea, they are worried, they don't want to plit the house
between john kasich and donald trump. they want to be known that these are not a group of men in the back room with cigars making up the rules as they go along. this entire process is going to play out publicly. as you know and as well as i know, we follow this for a living and it is not the easiest stuff to follow for the general audience. it will be interesting to see as it is all digested. this is the first opening bit in that fight. >> paul ryan and priebus on the hill communicating through and our broadcast, does not have the microphone that donald trump has with a speech and a tweet about the rules being rigged. i think this meeting is so far because he's winning the public relations war. >> reporter: that's entire ly accurate. if you see donald trump saying they're trying to steal it from me, i am not your average politici
politician, it does make all the sense in the world in a 30 second sound byte. my goodness, it will play out in the open. we may not understand everything they are talking about but the way they rule is going to be fascinating. >> luke. you have to study all of this stuff so we don't have to. thank you. >> reporter: take care. new accusations from the sanders campaign about hillary clinton's star power fundraisers. reactions from the clinton campaign is coming up next. you are watching andrea mitchell reports, msnbc.
tired of working for peanuts? well what if i told you that peanuts can work for you? that's right. i'm talking full time delivery of 7 grams of protein and 6 essential nutrients. ever see a peanut take a day off? i don't think so. harness the hardworking power of the peanut. according to our new wall street journal poll, democratic
inside has led a huge spike. >> fund raisanders' senior advi echoes that attack today calling the campaign action is unprecedented. >> it is not a false attack. it is 100% correct. they are misleading the public. joining me now is our senior advisor to the campaign. do you want to respond to your friend, ted? >> this is a last minute desperate attack. when they are losing in the stake. and they're going to lose tonight. >> are you violating party rules rather federal or finance rules by skimming and getting -- >> we are not doing any of the things that ted says we are doing. this is the same guy that went out when they stole our data
during a data breach and says we are not sure if they took our data. they have no evidence of it and they know that. this is what they are doing when they are behind. >> you getting a contribution from the dnc because of these funds raising? >> i don't know the ins and outs of these agreements. i know it is the same agreements that's signed by barack obama and jon kerry, these agreements to raise money to help the state parti parties, candidates up and down. something that hillary clinton feels passionate about has done all the same way these years. i believe we are doing it the right way. it is interesting that sanders are not raising money to help d democrats and the threat we face coming from ted cruz or donald trump is one that we need to fight hard. not just to win presidency but to elect for senators in
congressmen so be can get more things done. >> take a listen to jane sanders. >> that's an out liar. >> we'll see in the exit poll tonight but it is down 11 points in just a month. >> listen to jane last night. >> if you think i am unqualified. what about secretary clinton who heard the same information about the iraq war. i voted against it and she voted for it. who heard the same information about all these disaster trade policies. i voted against them. she voted for them and still defense th defends them and then everybody jumped oh, he says that hillary clinton is unqualified. he defended himself and made it
clear when she was distorting the record. >> this thing is not quieting down. >> well, look, i have said this before. he has level character attacks and he called her corrupt. and then when he was asked on the state on the debate whether he could point to single incident or done anything to favor wall street or oppose against them, he could not name a single thing. that's a pretty negative campaign when you are asked on stage and cannot provide it. >> right now, she's having a 41% favorability. how does she win those people back? >> you have to go out and earn every vote. you have to persuade them and make them your case to them that
the issue you care about are the same ones that she's been fighting for her entire career. she's been a leader on the progressive front on issues like health care and education and improving income working women through equal pay and you know she's been recognized by groups that's been on the front line of these young people cared about, planned parenthood endorsing her to be on the front line of women's health and fighting for lgbt americans. if you go out and make your case strongly. i believe that the people that support bernie sanders will understand that is a consequence. >> she has a 58% negative rating, say that they could not vote for her. >> i think the numbers are higher among the republicans who say they would not vote for her. what happens in an election is people have a choice between two
candidates. when they look at that choice, they weigh them carefully and what each side would mean in terms of their lives. i believe when hillary clinton is up against ted cruz or donald tru trump, not only bernie sanders voters will be voting. a whole a lot of swings finding the republicans are out of date. >> what happens if she wins her home state, her adopted home state by a single digit by a smaller than the expected margin. that further motivate bernie sanders to win the campaign. >> a win is a win. what matters particularly at this stage is adding to the delegate margin. if we add towards delegate margin while we are taking it off the map, it makes the mountain he got to climb
steeper. >> joel benenson, thank you very much. >> great to be here. thank you. >> the new power structure in trump's world, are there more shake ups to come? you are watching andrea mitchell reports on msnbc. of america to buy a new gym bag before earning 1% cash back everywhere, every time and 2% back at the grocery store. even before he got 3% back on gas. kenny used his bankamericard cash rewards credit card to join the wednesday night league. because he loves to play hoops. not jump through them. that's the excitement of rewarding connections. apply online or at a bank of america near you.

"not tonight, britta. not tonight." [ female announcer ] to nurses everywhere, thank you, from johnson & johnson.

you've been to my place. no, i wasn't...oh look, you dropped something. it's your resume with a 20 dollar bill taped to it. that's weird. you want to work for ge too. hahaha, what? well we're always looking for developers who are up for big world changing challenges like making planes, trains and hospitals run better. why don't you check your new watch and tell me what time i should be there. oh, i don't hire people. i'm a developer. i'm gonna need monday off. again, not my call. putting in that vote today was something terrific. >> how is that going? how is the reorganization of the campaigning happening? >> very good. >> very good he says. donald trump just a short time of casting his ballot today and feeling good of his campaign organization and about voting for himself. what about the behind the scene changes unveiling a new donald
trump. phillips for our washington post and nick. >> first, to you, the donald trump 2.0 or whatever you want to call it at this state, katy tur, our colleague is being t d told. trying to explain to the house members how they want to run this campaign and the same time priebus was meeting with others. the selection process is rigged and not fair and true. >> yeah, spends little and get on tv a lot and outraged people. >> tweet all the time. >> now, we are seeing a more convention donald trump campaign. part of that campaign, just saw the metaphor to convince the party he will not be a disaster
for them. >> if this become as horse race, he needs the party to believe that he could be a good candidate for them down ballot in the fall. >> kris alyssa, what is the likelihood that he can persuade party regulars and house members who have not been in this corle. >> well, look, outreach is one big part of it andrea. i don't believe that trump campaign was staff inside a way that people could go to the capitol hill club and talk to republican members in congress and essentially look, everything you know about donald i am not going to tell you all that is not true. here is what i can tell you about the guy and the campaign.
th the effort is telling of the next stage of what donald trump and the candidates mean. most politicians, you will not need to run a breaking news banner here. most politicians will make a decision based on their own interest, that means on polling and how he looks in the state and numbers. it may have more of an impact. >> and there is no surprise, also that these candidates the front runners will certainly trump cruz and clinton. they have something in common. and that's very high negatives. >> although you know talking to people at the state levels, they acknowledged the negative problems but they see it as a lesser of two evils. trump is significantly more negative than clinton. clinton's numbers are rigged in. people have pretty well established views of her.
i think everyone knows this is going to be a nasty and pretty negative. it is going to be about trying to figure out how to get a little bit ahead of your opponents in terms of offering something a little more positive. >> i don't know if we have seen that quite yet from trump or cruz. >> the sanders campaign is more less negative than obama and clinton were eight years ago. we heard from joel benenson. he does feel this was worst. he was on the other side eight years ago. the mayor, on morning joe today on the way how sanders is handling this campaign. >> should bernie sanders get out of the race if clinton wins? >> i don't tell the candidates what the do. bernie sanders feels he's sparking a difference in this country and it is a valuable discussion. if hillary clinton wins strongly
tonight which i believe she will. she will be the nominee. there is no question. what bernie sanders and his movement should focus on is the iss issues and mobilizing the people for the general election and beyond. it is not just about a single election. it is certainly not about the primary elections. >> he of course, is a hillary clint clinton's supporter. what do you expect we'll hear from bernie sanders tonight at his state college. >> for the last ten months attacking on big business and wall street and hillary clinton's ties to the elite class. i don't think joel is right. i don't think it is a particularly nasty campaign at all. up until the last month or two, it was a respectful campaign. they were running for r the same office, they cannot both have it. they have to criticize each other and saying the other person is less well equipped for it. of course, there will be
attacks. it is politics. >> andrew. c at a certain point if she has a lead in delegates. should he, bernie sanders thinking of not getting out but how to frame the message or how to frame the issues and make it less personal or is it all in? >> right, well, we saw sort of in 2008, it became clear eventually to hillary clinton after the meet me in ohio and in barack obama. she was still winning stage. she did scale back the negativity. she still ran a krast campaign but it was less negative. sanders started basically never mentioning hillary clinton and it is gotting more negatien mor. he's ramped it up as pooppose t scaling it down. the hard thing, andrea, i think he will not back away is my
guess. he will keep on winning some states here and there. i don't think he's likely to win tonight in new york but who knows. when you are still winning states and you have 28,000 people coming a rally, it is hard to take your foot off the gas and sort of coast to the finish line en if you knven if . >> my guess is we don't see a ramping down in that rhetoric in the way clinton did in 2008. >> abby, i see you nodding. >> there is a time clinton says we got to elect these democrats and vote for their conscious. as things heated up, they got more on sanders. the principle is true. some democrats are going to vote for who they want to vote for. i don't think it will be in their best interest pushing sanders out expecting these people to come home. they need to allow them to express themselves. >> thank you all very much.
>> coming up, house of cards, how new york city youngest council member got the attention of hillary clinton and bernie sanders. you are watching andrea mitchell reports on msnbc. i've just arrived in atlanta and i can't wait to start telling people how switching to geico could save them hundreds of dollars on car insurance. but first, my luggage. ahh, theret is.
i am going to work hard with leaders like the speaker to put more federal money back into public housing like supporting senior centers. >> when we talk about building our infrastructure, that means we are building houses in new york and not only here in new york but all over the country. >> both are making last minute visits to public housing
facilities. the effort is highlighted by lawrence o' donnel. joining me now is ritchie torres, he represents the central bronx. it is great to meet you. >> honor to be here. >> you took out lawerence at public housing and pointing out there is just as many as many people are live ing in the publ facili facility. >> the irony of public housing in new york city even though it is expansive everywhere, it was invisible for a long time to presidential candidates that have not been -- a word have not been spoken. i was part of the coalition of house leaders sending letters to all candidates calling them on a tour. >> did you hear back from any of them before lawerence aired that interview with you last week?
>> both the clinton and the sanders campaigns were given a consideration but there is no firm commitment until the msnbc segment. >> two days later hillary clinton shows up unannounced schedule. >> you grew up in public housing? >> yes, i did. i grew up in a public housing department. it was across the street from trump's golf course. >> that's an irony. >> it houses new yorkers and houses about 700,000 people. >> i would have been homeless and my family would have been homeless but for public housing. broken elevators and unsafe conditions and lack of security, lack of, now e basic utilities at times and poor repairs. >> so the new york city housing authority has been so starved of
