it's wednesday, april 27th. right now on "first look," a clean sweep for the donald, and hillary's wins spell the beginning of the end for bernie sanders. tornadoes ahead as 24 million americans are in the patd of -- path of large wind and hail. meet the boss who made his 2,000 employees very wealthy. plus new details on prince's estate and who will inherit his music and beyond. a new study on dogs and human hugs and start getting excited for the coming summer olympic games. we are just 100 days from rio. "first look" starts right now. good morning, everybody. thanks for joining us today. i'm betty nguyen. the donald goes 5 for 5 and
hillary clinton hit 4 out of 5. trump swept last night's contest by huge margins. he got a whopping 64% of the vote in rhode island and a massive 61% in delaware. trump picked up 109 more delegates as he edges closer to securing the nomination. >> i consider myself the presumptive nominee, absolutely. anybody -- senator cruz and governor kasich should really get out of the race. they have -- at all, they have no path. and they should get out of the race. as far as i'm concerned it's over. the two guys cannot win. no path. >> well, steve kornacki explains how he can reach the delegate number before a possible contested convention. >> that road to 1,237 for trump opened up wide. take a look at this. he came in to the night with 845, trying to get to 1,237.
it looks like he's probably going to get roughly 110 of the bound delegates that were up for grabs tonight. that would take him to 955. the unbound delegates the 54 in pennsylvania, this very unofficial right now. but it looks like about two-thirds of the unbound are going to be people who say they support donald trump or people who say they'll vote for the winner of their district and donald trump is sweeping pennsylvania right now. this is a massive trump landslide. if you added in 35 of those unbound, that 955 he'd close out tonight with 990. 990 with this to go. these are the states still to come on the republican side. you mentioned indiana, next week it's all about indiana right now. the way those delegate rules work there. if you win even narrow victory in indiana by a point, by a fraction of a point, you're going to get the bulk of those delegates. this is a winner take all here in new jersey. trump looking strong in west virginia. trump has a chance to get a
bunch here in new jersey. proportional states up here. if he comes in to may with 990 delegates there are a couple of different pathways that are going to be open to him to get to 1,237. >> well, this afternoon in washington, trump will deliver his first policy speech complete with the teleprompter and a professionally written speech. things the donald has avoided. the focus will be on foreign policy while touching on other topics including jobs. last night, trump took a shot at hillary clinton specifically though about her gender. >> i think the only card she has is the woman's card. she's got nothing else going. and frankly, if hillary clinton were a man, i don't think she'd get 5% of the vote. the only thing she's got going is the woman's card. and the beautiful thing is, women don't like her. okay? >> not so fast. the latest nbc news/"wall street journal" poll shows trump's
unfavorability rating at women at nearly 70% and in a hypothetical match-up against hillary clinton, 33% of women say they'll support trump and 56% will back clinton. clinton took delaware, pennsylvania, connecticut and maryland and bernie sanders was able to pull out a victory in rhode island. however, clinton actually won more delegates. clinton picked up 193 delegates. she is is only about 240 away from reaching the magic number needed for the nomination. the soeshlgded press calculate -- associated press calculated that hillary clinton is on track to win the nomination even if she loses the remaining primary states. >> with your help, we're going to come back to philadelphia for the democratic national convention. with the most votes and the most pledged delegates. let's go forward. let's win the nomination. and in july, let's return as a unified party.
>> after the results came in, the sanders campaign issued a statement containing no reference to the path forward. although it says he intends to stay in the race. best selling author ellis henican is here to sort it out for us. although not much sorting. donald trump had a big win, didn't he? >> it's donald and hillary's america, we just here. >> so it's set? >> it's done. some mathematician can come up with a formula but we're safe forgoting about that. >> well t cruz/kasich pact was hoping for cruz. many votes have been cast in the indiana, so trump is pulling ahead there. was a giant oversight by ted cruz? >> well, steve kornacki
convinced he has several paths, and they're more like sup superhighways than narrow highways. >> i have to call you out. >> this was a year of surprises. bernie did better than anybody expected. donald blew anybody away. you can hardly find anybody who thought that was likely. that's why politics is fun. >> but is trump going to really hate the fact that he said hillary clinton has a problem with female voters? they don't like her, and if she was a man she would only get 5% of the vote. >> i like those figures that you put up, that showing donald has a bit of a lady problem himself, right? >> right. >> donald has to eat so many words, right? i don't know that's one that's going to cause him any more problems than the 40 other things that he's said. >> well, if hillary clinton is smart she's going to take the words and run with them. we understand her campaign is putting out letters today and fund-raising off of it. >> in fact, last night if you
listen carefully to her victory speech, she made that point. she quoted donald saying she was playing the woman card. she says if it means the things i think it means deal me in. >> donald trump, this might be interesting here. he's urging bernie sanders to run as an independent. is this a smart way of taking votes away from clinton? >> he's causing mischief there. he knows if bernie did that it would only take votes away from hillary clinton. >> he's stoking the flames saying your party has treated you terribly. >> what's ironic, the same thing that people were telling donald when it look like he might not the nomination. >> is it plausible that bernie sanders might? >> i say no. bernie, listen, he cares about stuff. the issues matter to him which is why so much of his attention if you listen to ted devine and others in his campaign now turning to that democratic platform and what the future of the party is.
those issues frankly, that bernie has fought his entire career. he actually cares about that stuff, betty. >> actually cares. >> listen, for a politician. >> we actually like hearing that. don't hear it as much though. thank you so much, ellis. >> great to see you. we have new details on the ohio gruesome massacre as the authorities continue to search for the suspects. there was signs of a struggle before the people were killed. the eight victims all part of the roden family died from gunshot wounds. one was shot nine times. only one was shot once. some victims showed bruising and kating they fought back -- indicating they fought back against their killer or killers. let's get down to business with cnbc's landon dowdy. good morning. >> hi there, good morning. wall street may be a wait and see mode ahead of the announcement by the federal reserve this afternoon. the fed is not expected to hike interest rates as it continues to track the impact of weak
global growth. but fed chairman janet yellin and others may signal they're determined to raise rates this year. meanwhile, watch shares of apple today. they're down 7% after the company reported the first quarterly sales decline in more than a decade. apple posted the first ever drop in iphone sales as it face the ever saturated global market for smartphones. and potential big deal news this morning. the "wall street journal" reports that comcast is in talks to buy dreamworks animation for $3 billion. they're behind the hits like "shrek" and "how to train your dragon." comcast has enjoyed success with despicable me and minions. let's turn to a monster storm system in the midsection. more than 23 million people are at risk for severe weather today. in wichita, kansas, there was scattered rain and military planes were relocated as a precaution. a passing thunderstorm produced one to two inch sized hail at
kansas city's airport. rain came down in sheets near st. louis causing flooding. more than 25,000 customers lost power in the region. and in oklahoma, a powerful storm uprooted trees and tore the roofs off of homes. the storm in texas brought a steady stream of lightning an spawned a -- and spawned a tornado that knocked over an 18 wheeler. let's get to bill karins with the latest on the storms. boy, they were strong overnight. >> it was an outbreak, but we didn't lose lives to a tornado or anything like that that was a possibility yesterday. so we had the severe weather outbreak. i went through the southern ohio valley and back down through tornado alley. in all, over 400 storm reports but only five tornadoes. the five were on the weaker side. they didn't do a lot of damage. so we still have storms we're tracking this morning. the storm is still in the middle of the country. it will regenerate a new line of
tomorrows this afternoon. so they could do some more damage. the worst of the weather this morning approaching lufkin, texas. this looks like it will sweep through the suburbs of houston shortly. damaging winds are possible with the storms. then that line will weaken as it moves over louisiana and arkansas. it will regenerate a new line of storms, almost right over the top of little rock. back down to shreveport and houston again. those storms will roll towards the mississippi river late today. including memphis, st. louis, paducah, back down through tupelo and jackson, mississippi, at risk. in all 24 million people. maybe a half hour or so will experience those storms. a little bit of rain in the carolinas and virginia. betty, but we did avoid the big one yesterday and that was great. >> that is huge. thank you so much for that, bill. find out what one boss just did to make 2,000 of his employees very wealthy. plus, a new study that every dog owner needs to hear and we are 100 days to the summer olympic games in rio. your olympic preview is next.

good morning, everyone. it is wednesday, april 27th. i'm alex witt. for all of the build-up to last night's races, reading off the results was short and sweet for donald trump. three of the five races were called immediately for the republican front-runner with the final two falling his way minutes later. the clean sweep moves the first-time politician that much closer to the 1,237 delegates needed to lock up the nomination and avoid a fight on the convention floor in cleveland this summer. it was also a big night for hillary clinton who won four of the five states in her quest to shake off bernie sanders. and push ahead to the general election. donald trump's wins were sweeping and the margins were wide. trump won with 64% in rhode island, 61% in delaware, 58% in connecticut, 57% in pennsylvania and 54% in maryland. last night, trump basked in his victories in a press conference in trump tower. >> this is a far bigger win than we even expected. all five. that s
