indiana. according to you aour new poll, donald trump has a double digit lead over cruz there. the democratic side is closer. we'll begin with national correspondent peter alexander, in indianapolis this morning. good morning. >> good morning to you. in reality, ted cruz and the stop trump forces have one day left to stop donald trump from becoming the republican party's nominee. in our new poll, may be crushing those hopes. >> reporter: 24 hours out, the republican race could come down to indiana. >> if we win indiana, it's over. >> reporter: donald trump with 80% of the delegates needed to lock up the nomination, now arguing rivals ted cruz and john kasich are hanging by their fingertips. >> don't let me fall. >> reporter: cruz casting the stakes. >> i believe in the men and women gathered here and the goodness of the american people, that we will not give into evil but we will remember who we are. and we will stand for our
values. >> reporter: a cruz loss would likely mark the beginning of the end for his campaign, and a near fatal blow to the stop trump movement. their window is closing. the latest poll showing trump crushing cruz in indiana by 15 points. 6 in 10 republicans here say the alliance between cruz and kasich backfired. still, cruz remains defiant. asked whether he'd support trump as the nominee on "meet the press," he deflected. >> i am going to beat donald trump. you're welcome to lobby for support for trump as much as possible. we are going to beat trump. >> reporter: undeterred by crit critics, trump's talk turns head. >> we can't continue to allow china to rape our country. that's what they're doing. >> reporter: ahead of the convention in cleveland, trump's allies are plotting how to secure the nomination, even if he falls short of delegates.
groups like stop the steel are staging a massive protest. >> there should be a correlation between how the people voted and how delegates are allotted to the convention. it doesn't seem to be happening. >> reporter: hillary clinton with a slight lead over bernie sanders is looking to put away the race. >> i will work against a the divisiveness, the mean spiritedness, the hateful rhetoric that we are hearing from donald trump and others. >> reporter: as sanders insists, he's in it for the long haul. >> the convention will be a contested contest. >> it sounds good, but the fact is, because democratic pledged delegates are awarded proportionally, even if clinton loses here in indiana tomorrow and loses every other state on the calendar, she still collects enough delegates to win her party's nomination this june. >> peter, thank you. the center of the political universe right now, indiana.
we're joined now by nicolle wallace and msnbc host and political correspondent steve kornacki. good morning to both of you. >> morning. >> donald trump said to supporters, if we win in indiana, it's over. so if he does win, if he trounces cruz and kasich tomorrow, steve, does the stop trump movement pack up and go home, or do they pack up and buy bus tickets to cleveland? >> i don't think they'll pack up on the spot, but i don't know where they go after that. they'll point to california. they'll say, june 7th, huge number of delegates, he can stop him there. you have to talk about the idea of momentum. if trump wins tomorrow, and especially if he wins by the margin weir s're seeing in the , it was not on paper that way a week ago. the voters are saying, we're ready. >> we're seeing that play out in interesting ways. we know that ted cruz has pretty much outmaneuvered donald trump on the delegate process. finding delegates who would be supportive of him in a second ballot.
we're reading in the papers today that some of the delegates are softening and thinking, i don't know if i'm a cruz person after all. >> yeah. i think you can describe it as losing by winning. he was sort of winning some of the back room deal and the opaque side of presidential polit politics. all along the way, trump was gaining on him by cementing the message that someone was trying to take something from him that was rightfully his. i don't think cruz will be the nominee anyway, but he made damaging missteps. the kasich-cruz alliance was a bust. this game looked like a problem to many voters. i think trump will be the nominee. >> democratic side, close between hillary clinton and bernie sanders in indiana, according to the polls. if bernie sanders loses indiana, he has to win something like 95% of all remaining delegates before the convention. what does he say to his supporters when he gets on the
stage tomorrow night to justify going forward? >> what's weird about this, if you look at the map between now and the end for democrats, he could lose tomorrow and is likely to keep winning states until the end. there are a few left on the map, like west virginia a week later, that are going to be bernie sanders states. clinton versus obama in the primaries eight years ago, clinton was winning primaries through the end against obama but the math wasn't working. the key difference was at the end of the process, basically as soon as it ended, she said, that's it. i'm not fighting in the convention. will sanders do that? >> sanders talked about a contested convention as recently as this years ago. >> eight years ago, it was hillary clinton being a good girl, how would she get behind him and help obama win? now, trump is telegraphing everything that sanders says about clinton.
calling her unethical and unqualifi unqualified. he's made a mess for the democratic party. >> sanders is opening the wounds and the republican nominees are going to pour salt in the wounds. >> thank you, guys. millions across the south are facing another severe weather threat after a weekend of heavy rain and flash floods. miguel almaguer is in louisiana, west of baton rouge, this morning. miguel, good morning. >> good morning. this area has been hit hard by the deluge. many homes in the community already have damage. adding insult to injury, the region is under a flash flood watch today. the one thing this community does not need more of is water. >> reporter: the deadly storms pounding the south have shown no mercy. rain, hail, lightning and tornadoes, crippling communities in at least four states. while in kentucky, flash flooding swept away one person, who this morning, has been confirmed dead.

associated press, it felt he wasn't himself, probably the last month or two. i think he was struggling with being sick a lot. roberts tells the ap, the music icon was suffering from core throats and a stomach illness. his final show on april 14th in atlanta was plagued by cancellations for what were said to be the flu. when asked about reports of prescription painkillers and addiction, roberts said, not even a hint. not at all. echoing what others close to prince, who want to remain private, told nbc. but law enforcement sources say prescription painkillers were found on his body, and in paisley park. finding out what role they may have played and who prescribed them is an ongoing investigation. surrounding the days leading up to prince's day, the family began the process to divide up the estate. there is no will and a mountain of unreleased music, nearly
impossible to put a price tag on. the estate is estimated to be worth up to $300 million now. the music could make it worth much more. >> for a man so sophisticated, with so many business interests, to leave no road map for what goes forward, chaos is bound to ensue. ♪ must have heard it on the news this morning. >> reporter: the conservative guess by a state expert is legal wrangling over prince's priceless will will take years. >> a source connected to the family tells me the negotiations have already become contentious, and they've only just begun. matt and savannah, back to you. >> stephanie, thank you very much. now to puerto rico's growing debt crisis. the government will default today on $422 million in debt payments. its governor announced on sunday what he called the painful decision, saying they can't pay the bonds without cutting essential services. officials spent the weekend trying to negotiate a settlement that would have avoided the
default. the territory can't declare bankruptcy and a rescue bill stalled in the u.s. congress. things could get worse this summer when another payment of more than $700 million is due in july. tens of thousands of public school students in detroit have an unexpected day off today. detroit public schools closed after the teachers union urged members to call in sick over a protest over funding issues. the district says unless it gets more funding for the state, it'll have no money to pay teachers after june 30th. tens of thousands of detroit students missed class. speaking of school, the milestone for the first family. the white house announced the obama's eldest daughter will attend harvard university. first, she'll take a year off after graduating high school. kristen welker has more on that. good morning. >> good morning to you. i'm, of course, out on the trail covering the race for the white house. but it's the current residents
of 1600 pennsylvania avenue who are also making big news today. malia obama has been visiting colleges, spurring speculation about her future. she's made her decision. it's harvard. >> reporter: she's the oldest daughter of the nation's first african-american president, but now malia obama is preparing to make a mark of her own. after graduating this spring, the 17-year-old will take a so-called gap year and then attend harvard university in the fall of 2017. the president joking this weekend, there are still rules as long as malia is under his roof. >> a young person came up to me and said, she was sick of politicians standing in the way of her dreams, as if we were actually going to let malia going this year. >> reporter: he talked candidly about how much he'll miss her. >> i'm not ready for her to leave. i was asked if i would speak at her graduation. i said, absolutely not. because i'm going to be sitting
there with dark glasses sobbing. >> reporter: it's been nearly eight years since the obama daughters first captivated the nation. >> hi, daddy! >> reporter: since then, the world has caught glimpses of them growing up. on family outings and holiday traditions through the years. even marking major milestones, like malia's sweet 16. >> watch out. malia obama on the road. >> reporter: now, malia is about to travel down a familiar road for first daughters. chelsea clinton set off for stanford while her dad was president. the bush twins, also. this high achievement comes with mixed emotions. >> she's one of my best friends. it's going to be hard for me not to have her around all the time. >> now, the white house has always been careful to protect the privacy of the obama girls. they haven't said how malia will
spend the gap year. typically, students use it to travel or volunteer. it's possible she wants to start her studies after her dad leaves office. of course, the obamas are no stranger to harvard. both of malia's parents attended law school there. back to you. >> kristen, thank you very much. >> i would like to announce that i'm going to take a gap year. it would be nice. >> i've been touring colleges with my daughter, and i want to go back to college. >> it's wasted on the young. >> we should go now. how about a check of the weather first? >> in the meantime, since i'm here, figure i'll do that for you. as you saw in miguel's story, we're looking at more heavy thunderstorms moving through. severe thunderstorm watches from houston all the way up near memphis. we'll watch this. also, a stationary front, cold front, pushing its way east. we have heavier showers and thunderstorms in western new york. a risk of strong storms today making their way south of philadelphia to ash ville. 20 million people at risk for

>> you have not attempted to watch the series? >> i lived through it and knew the series would not be accurate. i couldn't see any reason why i should watch it. >> what's it like now? it's been 20 years and, suddenly, everyone is talking about the o.j. simpson case. you turn on your tv and see the images. >> it's the trial that never dies. it just goes on and on into perpetui perpetuity. i'm amazed 20 years later, people are still talking about the verdict. >> is it painful to relive it in this way? is it cathartic? >> neither. by not paying a whole lot of attention to it, that's the healthiest thing for me to do. then i go on social media sometimes and see what people say. i'm going to ignore this. >> keep out of it. >> yeah. >> let's talk about the trial itself. you came in rather late, after the jury had been picked. what was your first thought when you walked into the courtroom. >> i looked at the jury, and george looked at me, and i looked at the body language. i could tell, you know, from the
very first moment, that there were jurors who did not like me and did not appreciate me being on the panel. i wondered why the jury wasn't more diverse. i was surprised. >> you feel the case was almost won or lost in jury selection? >> i think cases are won and lost in jury selection all the time. i think that this one is probably one of them. >> let's talk about the racial tensions that were just shot through the case. you mentioned the jury. there was the back drop of lapd and its history in the black community. this was mark ferman. the allegations that o.j. was framed because he was black. and here you are, the african-american prosecutor. what was it like, to be in that role? >> i didn't think i was there because i was african-american. a lot of people said that and wrote that and published that. i thought i was there because i was a good lawyer, a good prosecutor. that's what i tried to focus on. i didn't pay a lot of attention to the media at first, until the media started paying attention
to me. then we had an argument one day, before martin luther king's birthday about race, and the "n" word and it was then an issue for me. >> johnny cochran got really heated. >> i was offended then and offended now. it was an outrageous thing for one lawyer to say about another in a public courtroom. >> did you patch things up with johnny cochran. >> yeah. johnny and i were fine. i wish he were here so we could argue about this some more. continue my closing statement in the simpson case. >> the other thing the series gets into is the suggestion that perhaps you and marcia clark had a romantic relationship during the trial. care to confirm or deny? >> well, i'll tell you what, i'll wait until marcia is
sitting next to me. >> to talk about it? >> in greater detail. you know, people want that. they want a happy ending to what was otherwise a happy ending. >> would be understandable. >> look at it from my position as a lawyer. people looking back at the trial. if i would have said i had a relationship with marcia clark, people would say, we lost the case because we were more interested in intimacy than in the law and the facts. that'd be an even worse position to be? >> i have to ask you about the moment o.j. simpson tried on the glove. for those who think the trial was lost in that moment, what do you say? >> you have to look at the chronology of events in the case. number one, i think the trial was lost before then. i think the glove thing was the most brilliant move in any criminal courtroom in the history of -- >> you do not regret it? >> i can't regret it. it's the past. i think that desperate times
call for desperate measures. you know, for me as a lawyer, i'm always one to try and win. always going to try and save my case. if it's a little unorthodox, the approach i take, because i don't have a whole lot of other approaches. >> as we sit here today, are you glad you served on the simpson case. >> no. no. >> really? >> the first day i was supposed to appear, i was having back spasms, at home, couldn't get off the floor. i thought i was having a heart attack. i should have stayed on the floor. >> changed your life? >> changed my life. changed me. >> christopher darden, good to catch up with you. thank you for being here. >> my pleasure. >> the book is called "in contem contempt" and you can find it as an ebook. marcia clark will be here later. she'll sit down with kathie lee and hoda. also ahead, history in the making. we'll check in with kerry sanders, aboard the

u.s. cruise ship is heading into port in havana, cuba. it's one of the biggest commercial steps since last summer when the u.s. and cuba reestablished relations. the only journalist reporting live from the ship is kerry sanders. you've been covering the back and forth between the two countries for a long time. i don't think he ever saw this happening. here's kerry sanders. >> reporter: this morning, history is being made as this cruise ship becomes the first in more than a half century to sail from miami to havana, 262 miles. until now, it might has well have been light years. it's the maiden voyage to cuba on a ship owned by carnival corporation. >> we'll be at the heart of the city, a few minutes from downtown. >> reporter: american passengers about to step on to cuban soil, a country that most u.s. citizens have been forbidden to visit since 1963. >> we wanted to be part of
history. it's really an exciting thing. an honor. >> reporter: the cuba they'll see has americans anxious to get here before it changes. >> i want to get there before burger king shows up. >> reporter: the voyage almost didn't happen. an old cuban law still in the books banned anyone born on the island from coming in by sea. cuban americans from miami protested, and the law changes. which is why anna garcia, who left havana when she was 6, is today among a dozen cuban-born americans able to take the trip. >> i've been waiting 48 years, 8 days and 8 hours. i left on april 24th, 1968. i've been waiting for a long time. it still seems absolutely surreal. excuse me. >> reporter: cruising to cuba comes with restrictions. passengers can't go to the beach and drink mojitos. passengers technically are not tourists. they're on an educational or
cultural visit. >> it's all very new. it's all happening so quickly. it's cool to see. >> reporter: one ship, 700 passengers, but a sign perhaps of more to come. >> very few americans aren't curious about and want to visit cuba and experience the culture and people there. we see a lot of demand. >> we're almost there. i can't believe this. let's check. how close are we? >> two miles out, kerry. >> two miles out. this is a history-making moment. when you think about the history of the two countries, so far apart, finally coming together. americans getting ready to step off the ship and on to cuba, a country in many ways, frozen in time. this ship will be going to three ports in cuba every other week. it's about $1800. that's where it starts. there are other fees because of taxes. truly a history-making moment,

churches speaking about marriage tells the "christian post," wives are to honor and respect and follow thaer husband's lead, not to tell a husband how to be a better husband. when each person gets their part right, regardless of how their spouse is treating them, there is hope for real change in their marriage. >> their marriage is really something that fits into the bigger picture of god's love for his bride, the church. >> reporter: the backlash on twitter was quick. can someone please slap some sense into kirk cameron, one woman tweeted. another, kirk cameron isn't qualified to give anyone advice on anything. his wife isn't allowed to tell him this. that's why it's up to us. >> in this case, i think he's using religion, in a way, as a way to justify or validate what are sexist beliefs and not take responsibility for them. >> reporter: men chimed in, too, calling cameron a piece of trash. some supported the actor, saying the advise came from scripture.
if you're a christian wife, that is exactly what your bible commands you do. hate to break it to you. cameron's spokesperson says his comments were twisted and taken out of context. telling "today", husbands should love and protect their wives. >> it is meekness, it is not weakness. >> reporter: his sister has stated that she prefers a more submissive role in her own marriage. >> what's another word for election? >> reporter: this isn't the first time the '80s heartthrob has been under fire. he spoke out against gay marriage in 2012. >> it's unnatural and detrimental and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization. >> reporter: weeks later, he clarified comments here on "today". >> i love all people. i have hatred toward no one. i'm also a man of conviction. if you press me, i'll give you my perspective on a social issue if you ask. >> reporter: with his love worth

we wanted the audience to sort of view this as a study of this woman. but, i mean, i have my own viewpoints on her as a person. like i said, i don't really want to put that in people's heads. >> she's a law student. yet, she's also been drawn into this world of the escort service. >> yeah. >> when i say drawn in, i think people might immediately think she's been forced into this and, yet, there's something about it that she finds empowering. >> that was kind of the idea behind the show and what i liked about it. it was the story of a girl who ends up doing sex work, who is not coming from a terrible background or oppressive situation. that was the idea for the show. what kind of girl enters into this career and likes it and wants to do it? there's a lot of them. we were interested in that. >> she manages to compartmentize these two sides of her world.
when we watch this and see her doing what most people find distasteful, we still end uprootiuproot i uprouproot -- up rooting for her. >> that's why i liked the script. i was reading it and she was doing what one might consider bad or terrible things, and i still wanted her to win and was on her side. i thought if we could accomplish that with a tv show, it'd be an interesting thing to do. >> there are scenes in the show that are graphic is maybe not the right word, but they're intense sexually. it's not a first date show, i don't think, or a show you'd sit down and watch with mom. have you tried that? >> i have sat down with mom. >> how did that go? >> i fast forwarded some parts. my parents are both -- i haven't shown my dad -- but my mom is very, i guess, young for a mother and progressive. understands -- you know, i don't have conservative parents. she really liked it.
>> talking about your mom, lisa marie. your grandmother, we're talking about priscilla. do you look forward to the time, even today on our show, we introduced you from being from hollywood and music royalty, do you look forward to the day when it's never mentioned, when people have you on a program like this? >> it doesn't bother me. i don't think about it. a lot of people say, you must get frustrated at always being called elvis' granddaughter. i don't really think about it. it's a fact. >> it may be easier for each generation. easier for you than for your mom. >> i think so. i'm removed a generation, so i don't really feel it as some kind of bad thing. to me, it's not a bad thing. >> you carry it extremely well. riley keough, thank you for being here. >> thank you for having me. >> "the girlfriend experience" is on starz. our best of broadway week kicks off. we have the cast of "waitress"

are twice as high in men as they are in women. >> with that in mind, the american academy of dermatology created a new psa to encourage men to check themselves. take a look. >> take a good look at yourself. oh, yeah. and turn. oh, very nice. check yourself out. and find someone else to help. >> dermatologist deborah is here to give us the once over. good to see you. good morning. >> morning. >> the incidents in men, on the rise. is that because more men are getting themselves checked, or it's simply happening more often? >> it's happening more often. men are not as knowledgeable about skin cancer as women tend to be, and there have been surveys that have shown that they are not as likely to look at the way their skin is changing.
they're not as aware of the fact that, you know -- there's no such thing as a healthy tanner or a base tan that's good for you. >> is there a difference in the incidents between, say, men of color, and caucasian? >> skin cancer can occur in any skin type and any ethnicity. unfortunately, in men of skin of color, it's diagnosed later and when it's much more difficult to treat. for example, if you develop a malignant melanoma, your chance of survival for five years is around 70% and yours is around 93%. >> we talk about self-examination. there are simply places on your body you cannot look at yourself. you get somebody to help you. how often do you suggest you go to a trained professional? >> it depends on your family history, skin type and risk of skin cancer. have you had multiple burns over the past? do you frequent a suntanning salon? all those things add to it. it's important to get a baseline
skin test from your dermatologist to determine what's best for you. >> there is one spot our makeup artist always told me i should have checked. you look a picture of it earlier. we're going to look at it up close. anything i should be worried about. >> i like to use magnification to look at moles. it looks okay. what i'm seeing under the microscope, looking for asymmetry, the abcs. a border that's irregular color, multiple colors. anything bigger than the size of a pencil eraser or what's evolving. that looks okay for me. >> men to do a self-check, what do you look for? >> moles that are changing or evolving. something that a non-healing wound or growth. look for a crusty area that repetitively doesn't heal properly. or anything that is new. for you, for example, if you were to see a new spot on your arm or something growing, you
might be concerned. you want to be able to look at the head. have somebody look behind your ears. it's difficult for you, for example, to see the side burns or the back of your legs. on your buttock and the private areas. doing a skin exam, it's best to be in a well-lit area, mirrors. if you can engage with a partner, it would be helpful. >> you touched a second ago, moles evolving. can a mole like this, which is fine, turn into something that's not fine? >> yes. be aware of that mole. if your makeup artist or partner or someone in your family says, that's changing, betting bigger or darker, have that looked at. >> sunscreen, sunscreen, sunveresun j sunscre sunscreen. >> absolutely. protective clothing, seeking shade, avoiding the salons, your best bet. >> thank you, doctor. appreciate it. >> thank you. >> if you want to check your
skin cancer risk and take a quiz from the skin care foundation, head to today.com. mr. roker, weather? >> that's right. not a lot of sun here in the northeast. let's look what you have for the week ahead. a lot of rain. just because it's cloudy doesn't mean you don't need sun protection. there are still uv rays coming through the clouds. you'll see a lot of wet weather in the east. as we get to the mid part of the week, from the great lakes to the northeast, rain moves into the pacific northwest. midsection of the country, sunshine. latter part of the week, still damp. we've been talking about the omega block. we'll keep dry where it's dry and wet where it's wet. midsection of the country, warm. in the midweek period, it's much warmer under the beneficial dome of high pressure in the plains. stays in the midsection of the country. both ends of the country looking at cooler than average temperatures because of that omega block. that's what's go in good morning. i'm meteorologist bill henley.
