who are really putting the fun in golf with incredible trick shots. >> those stories and a whole heck of a lot more we get started on a sunday morning here on "today." >> thank you so much. see you in ten minutes. >> okay. >> thanks, george. in decision 2016, polls suggest new york could be a done deal for both sides of the presidential race. how come the front-runners are campaigning there like there's no tomorrow? the top issue on this morning's edition of nbc's "meet the press." now for a preview is moderator of "meet the press" chuck todd. good morning to you, chuck. >> good morning, george. >> chuck, first we want to start with the democrats. this race between hillary clinton and bernie sanders really taking it up a notch this past week. how much of a must win is new york state for the two candidates? >> enormous for both of them. bernie sanders could pull the upset, he can make this case that it would reset the race. he can make a case that hillary clinton is struggling to unite
7:51 am
the democratic party. this would be a -- first time sanders would have won essentially a state that hillary clinton should have won, that looks luke a state that is a hillary clinton state, a state she's won twice as a u.s. senator. she beat barack obama in the presidential primary by double digits here in 2008. so it is a state she should win rather handily. so that's why it is -- there is no path for sanders to win this nomination without pulling a big upset like this. and it really is -- this might be his last chance to pull the type of upset he needs to pull this off. i think that's why you have this added tension that is in the air on the democratic side. >> so important to both sides. and then on the republican side of this race, donald trump, a lot of people talk ing about this, hiring a new consultant amid whispers of disarray inside the campaign. is this designed to sort of head off that delegate cherry picking that has been happening by ted cruz? >> well, that's exactly what this is a response in, ted cruz is, you know, we were noting this week, this past week that

"meet the press" moderator chuck todd. chuck, thank you very much for being with us this morning. >> you got it. >> donald trump's in convention manager paul manafort and democratic white house candidate bernie sanders will be chuck's guests on nbc's "meet the press" coming your way this morning at 10:30, here on nbc 10.
