state. plus, hillary clinton campaigns in coal country and is forced to answer tough questions over her past comments about putting the industry out of business. >> i just want to know how you can say you're going to put a lot of coal miners out of jobs and then come in here and tell us how you're going to be our friend. because those people out there don't see you as a friend. >> we'll have clinton's response, plus overcoming 5,000 to 1 odds to make sports history. it's 5:30 on the east coast, 2:30 out west and this is "way too early." good morning. it's tuesday, may 3rd, i'm jonathan capehart. donald trump hopes to rack up another win in indiana and in doing so he is hoping to close out the republican primary season. trump needs 46% of the remaining delegates to win a majority on
2:31 am
the first convention ballot. something both of his opponents are incapable of. a majority think that ted cruz and john kasich should drop out of the race. 52% for cruz, 63% for kasich. polls close at 6:00 p.m. local time in the state. that spans both eastern and central time zones and the latest polling indicates it could be an early night with trump opening up a 15-point lead. but ted cruz doesn't think so, speaking at his rally last night. >> we've got 21 hours. i want to ask you right now, donald trump and i are effectively tied in the state of indiana. it is neck and neck. >> now, for the democrats, hillary clinton now leads bernie sanders by nearly 800 delegates. she needs a mere 19% of delegates remaining to sew up the nomination. bernie sanders though not mathematically out. needing 81% of remaining delegates. the latest nbc news/"wall street
2:32 am
journal"/marist poll shows bernie sanders four points back in indiana. a new cnn/orc poll shows him eight points down nationally with little movement. and the race has seen a literal reversal of fortunes. clinton eclipsing sanders in monthly fund-raising for the first time in 2016. she raised money capitalizing on trump's women comments. and trump rolled out support from exnotre dame lou holtz endorsed trump in a video. >> there's nothing but winners in indiana. the main reason i endorsed him, i played his golf course and he stayed in his hotel. he does nothing but go first class. he wants this country to be first class as well. >> and trump took others with him on the tlal. -- trail.
2:33 am
native football great fred the hammer williamson introduced him and gene keady campaigned for him and exbasketball coach digger phelps fired up the crowd where trump talked about immigration and finishing off ted cruz. >> but i have never seen a guy like this. i have never seen -- he even said, donald trump will not be i would the wall. he said he's not going to build the wall. not build the wall? we are building the wall. but i've got this cry, cruz, lyin' ted, donald trump has said he's not going to build the wall. i think he's crazy. i think he's crazy. lyin' ted does not have thor the perment to do this. he's choking like a dog. we have to get out and vote. >> as ted cruz was leaving a campaign stop in marion, indiana, yesterday, half dozen
2:34 am
donald trump supporters were across the street holding signs and crying out, lose with cruz. and do the math. that's when cruz bypassed his motorcade and went over to speak with them. here's part of that exchange. >> i'm running to be everyone's president. those who vote for me and -- >> we don't want you. >> well, you're entitled to your view. >> do the math. >> do the math. >> you asked kasich to drop out. it's your turn. take your own word. >> you know on the wall that donald told "the new york times" editorial that he's not going to deport anyone. >> you're lying. >> once again, lyin' ted. >> well, sir, actually -- >> take down isis. he'll take down the -- >> civilized people don't scream and yell at each other. >> where's your goldman sachs jacket? your wife works there. >> i was supported by 1.3 million contributions all over the country. our average contribution is $60. donald trump is deceiving you. he's playing you for a chump. sir, america is a better coun y country -- >> without you.
2:35 am
>> thank you for those kind sentiments. let me point out i have treated you respectfully the entire time. and a question everyone should ask -- >> are you canadian? >> do you want your kids repeating the words of donald trump? >> interesting moment, ted cruz's running mate carly fiorina was introducing cruz and family when she turned and stumbled off the stage. cruz's wife extended her hand toward fiorina. and an aide walked over to help her up. fiorina continued over and donald trump had this to say. >> she fell off the stage the other day. did anybody see that? and cruz didn't do anything. even i would have helped her, okay? they just showed it to me. said, wow, that's really cruel. she fell -- she just went down.
2:36 am
she went down a long way, right? she went down right in front of him and he was talking, he kept talking. he didn't look like -- that was a weird deal. >> i mean, come on. yesterday, hillary clinton took fire from all sides on her position on fossil fuels in indianapolis in front of nearly 8,000 people, bernie sanders continued to pressure the front-runner over her position on fracking. >> at a time of a global crisis with regard to clean water, we have got to end fracking. [ cheers and applause ] and that by the way is not secretary clinton's position. >> it's a divisive topic among democrats in states where fracking is already in play. in pennsylvania, where hillary clinton won for instance, exit polling showed 63% of democratic
2:37 am
voters oppose the practice. democrats who favored it overwhelmingly broke for clinton by two-thirds. those who opposed it were split evenly between the candidates and last night in west virginia, the heart of coal country, clinton faced protesters outside a round table and tough questions inside. bo copley, an out of work coal industry worker pressed clinton on the comments she made in a town hall in march. >> i'm the only candidate which has a policy about how to bring economic opportunity using clean renewable energy as the key into coal country. because we're going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business. right, tim? we're going to make it clear that we don't want to forget those people. those people labored in those mines for generations, losing their health, often losing their lives to turn on our lights and power our factories. now we've got to move away from coal. and all the other fossil fuels, but i don't want to move away from the people who did the best they could to produce the energy
2:38 am
that we relied on. >> the reason you hear those people out there saying some of the things that they say is because when you make comments like we're going to put a lot of coal miners out of jobs, these are the kind of people that you're affecting. this is my family. and my hope is in my god that's my future. i want to know how you can say you're going to put a lot of coal miners out of jobs and then come in here and tell us how you're going to be our friend. because those people out there don't see you as a friend. >> i know that, bo. and you know, i'm -- i don't know how to explain it other than what i said was totally out of context from what i meant because i have been talking about helping coal country for a very long time. and i did put out a plan last summer and it was a misstatement
2:39 am
because what i was saying is that the way things are going now, we'll continue to lose jobs. that's what i meant to say. i think that seems to be supported by the facts. i didn't mean that we were going to do it. what i said was, that is going to happen unless we take action to try to help and prevent it. so i don't -- i don't mind anybody being upset or angry. that's a perfect right for people to feel that way. i do feel a little bit sad and sorry that i gave folks the reason or the excuse to be so upset with me because that's not what i intended at all. i'll be honest with you, a lot of people said, just don't go to west virginia. right? you know? go to california. they want more votes there and they vote in june. just don't go. and then because of the misstatement that i made, which i apologize for, when i saw how it was being used, i know that
2:40 am
my chances are, you know, pretty difficult to be honest. i'm here because i want you to know whether people vote for me or not, whether they yell at me or not, is not going to affect what i'm going to try to do to help because i feel like that's a moral obligation. >> by the way, clinton stuck around and talked to bo and his wife about his family afterwards. let's turn to business now, where u.s. stocks posted their biggest one-day advance in more than two weeks. the same could not be said for apple. its shares slipped for an eighth straight loss. the longest losing streak for the tech giant in 18 years. cnbc's louisa bojesen is joining us live from london. tim cook tried to soothe fears yesterday, did it work? >> well, judging by the share price, not really. as you said this the longest losing streak that we have seen since what july of '98.
2:41 am
it's only happened four other times that we have had eight sessions in the row where the stock has been traded down. it will be interesting to see what happens today. what happens in the coming weeks, given this negativity that has been surrounding this stock. they came out with these larger models last year. here this year, we haven't seen the same type of takeup of their newer models in 2015/2016. there's also been a huge impact seen on the tech etfs. according to morning star, 75% of the tech etfs, they hold apple stock. hulu is developing a cable style online tv service that they hope to launch in the first quarter of 2017. they want to make the company a competitor to some of the more traditional pay tv providers out there. the new subscription service would be streaming fees for a lot of the popular broadcasts and cable tv channels, kind of netflix style. they're owned by walt disney. and 21st century fox. they're hoping to launch in the

beginning of 2017 and hoping to see popular uptake given what's happening in the world of tv at the moment. jonathan? >> all right. louisa bojesen, thank you. we turn to detroit where a mass teacher sickout is expected to continue for a second consecutive day today. nearly all 90 public schools were closed yesterday after half of the teachers called in sick in protest after the city said it wouldn't be able to pay them past june 30th. the lawmakers were urged to pass the package to keep the district afloat. the governor already signed an emergency $48 million to keep the district afloat through the end of the year. the stage is now set for what could be a major family drama over the fortune left behind by prince. the fight reached a minnesota courtroom yesterday and there's still many questions over how the superstar died. nbc's stephanie gosk has the latest. >> reporter: with concerns
