8:09 am
this to a brokered convention. ted cruz has a slight chance to get to the 1237. donald trump, some what better. as long as kasich and rubio stay in, it will be awhile before we get to the two-man race. last night tell us about what success, if any, the mitt romney and stop trump movement is having at this point. >> a couple of things. if you look at all the states last night, donald trump underperformed his polls. going into this weekend. most of them taken before the debate, before mitt romney came out. he overperformed on the early vote. those votes cast before the debate and before mitt romney's attack on thursday. so there are some signs that there's been some impact over this week. the other point you have to look at, when you look at the states yesterday. kansas, maine, those were closed primaryies primaries. only republicans were allowed to vote. not independents. a lot of donald trump's
8:10 am
independents. >> it's interesting you say this, because the conventional wisdom, at least in some quarters, has been, mitt romney, john mccain, coming out against trump, will only make trump supporters support him more. >> it could lock in the 30 to 35% that have been supporting him all the way. the question is, has the momentum he had been stalled? i think there are at least some signs of that from yesterday's voting. >> george stephanopoulos. fascinating as always. we love having you on. george will go one on one with both john kasich and bernie sanders. later this morning on "this week." right here on abc. >> looking forward to that. we want to turn now to the nasty supersoaker blasting northern california. the intense weekend storm causing downpours and fears of flooding and landslides. it's only going to get worse with more storms on the way. aditi roy is in pacifica. near san francisco. aditi, good morning to you.

8:14 am
two suffered third trimester fetal death. and 29% of those women who had ultrasounds had abnormalities on the ultrasound that showed the fetal brain was being affected. this study indicated zika can affect women in all stages of pregnancy. it suggested there is a compromised function of the placenta, which then affects the fetus. we need to emphasize, this is association, observation. we haven't proven cause and effect. >> devastating for those families. doctors, right now, the advice is as i understand it, if you're worried you have been exposed, you should have ultrasounds. what would a doctor like you be looking for? >> deeper dive on those. when we do ultrasounds in pregnancy, we're not looking at one point in time. we're doing that, making observations. we're following that fetus over time to compare changes.
