5:29 pm
decision 2016. the clock is ticking for you to cast your ballot in new jersey. >> less than three hours left the polls close. as voters in the garden state have their say, everyone is wondering whether bernie sanders will back down that hillary clinton is the presumptive democratic nominee for president. new jersey is one of six states voting today. california, montana, new mexico, and the dakotas are also holding their primaries today. >> now that clinton is the presumptive democratic nominee, she finds herself in a close race with donald trump. in the new nbc news/survey
5:30 pm
monkey poll, clinton is leading trump by four points among registered voters. she's up two pints from last week. further analysis, tune in to nightly news at 6:30. both parties now have their presumptive nominees. the democrats are now focused on november. >> tonight, we have brought in two analysts to help us break down the race going forward. jim schultz on the republican side and mark alderman on the democratic side. thank you both for joining us. >> thank you for having us. >> mark, let's start with you. no one thought the democrats wouldby the party in turmoil right before their convention, but bernie sanders is not conceding defeat. is this a problem when it comes to winning the white house? >> this is deja vu all over again. for us, in 2008, clinton beat senator obama by eight points in california, then withdrew and endorsed. that's what needs to happen next
5:31 pm
here too. secretary clinton and senator sanders need to sit down and figure this out like senator clinton and senator obama did eight years ago. and i have no doubt that this party will be united by one overwhelming issue, the need to keep donald trump out of the white house. >> and jim, speaking of donald trump, it sound like a broken record. donald trump causing controversy once again. this time with his comments about the judge handling the lawsuit against trump university. trump claims the judge can't be fair because of his mexican heritage. many of his own supporters have now spoke out against his comments including speaker of the house paul ryan. let's take a listen. >> claiming a person can't do their job because of race is sort of the textbook definition of a racist comment. i think that should be absolutely disavowed. it's absolutely unacceptable. >> trump has survived many controversies, but will this catch up to him?
5:32 pm
>> this is politics, and politics at very high stakes. you're going to see increased scrut on every word by both candidates and it will be twi twisted by both sides against one another. it's very important for donald trump to disciplined in his commentary. whether this comment impacts him or not, you have to look at what people are thinking as they sit around their kitchen tables. their care about jobs, and they care about getting back to work, and donald trump's message is he's an outsider, and he's going to do away with the failed obama/clinton policies and bring jobs back to the united states. and i think that's what people are going to care about going forward, and that's how they're going to vote come november. >> we have standing next to each other in the studio. the next question is for the two of you. these candidates are arguably two of the most unpopular presidential campaign history. how will trump or clinton convince voters that they're the better choice just for an ease
5:33 pm
of answering the question. let's start with you, mark. >> four people are going to convince the voters that secretary clinton is the better choice. first, secretary clinton has to make her own, and she will. second, as i said a moment ago, senator sanders will be a strong supporter of hers. third and very powerful and very helpful, the president and the first lady are going to be voices of support for candidate clinton. and fourth, jim, donald j. trump. trump is going to make this an easy choice. he is the most un-american candidate for president since george wallace in 1968. and that truth will be impossible to hide. >> and jim, what about trump now? how will he be able to convince voters he's the one for the job? >> donald trump is going to bring business sense to washington. hillary clinton and barack obama are just part of the
5:34 pm
establishment that wants to keep things the same way and continue the status quo. fact of the matter is we have lost 264,000 manufacturing jobs, more people are on welfare than prior to the obama/clinton policies, and more people are -- and we have more people on well and more people in poverty than we did when they started. so i think people are going to vote for donald trump because they believe it's jobs, jobs, jobs. and at the end of the day, they just don't trust hillary clinton, whether it's benghazi or the e-mails, whatever it may be, they just don't trust her. and she's not answering any questions, for six months now, she hasn't a press conference, and only did interviews in a controlled environment. what's she afraid of? >> jim schultz, mark alderman, standing next to each other, arguing opposite points. thank you for joining us. we apprec your opinions. here's more proof hillary is looking ahead to november. she has scheduled campaign
5:35 pm
events in two battleground states later this month. one of those trips is to pennsylvania. pittsburgh on john 14th. she'll mock a stop in cleveland, ohio, the day before. she will discuss her vision for a united america. >> clinton's primary rival bernie sanders has vowed to keep on fighting, but could the results of today's primary actually change that? nbc's lester holt sat down with sanders in california this afternoon to get his take on whether he'll stay in the race to see his explosive interview, tune in to nbc nightly news at 6:30. now to your first alert weather. here's a live look at the nbc10 radar, scattered storms have passed over the region tonight. >> let's get an update on what's happening in your neighborhood. here's chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz. glenn, some areas seeing bouts of heavy rain. >> yes, and it's not going to last very long. if you're getting heavy rain now, just wait a few minutes
5:36 pm
because things are going to change. this area just raced through the whole region over the last hour, hour and a half, so we're already seeing it just about exit right over atlantic city, right now. just south of atlantic city. toward ocean city. ventnor, margate, longport getting it hard, and over toward ocean city, getting some heavy rain out of this. now, as we head into delaware, this heavy rain headed toward seaford, the northern portion is weakening, so it might not hold together all the way through delaware. the rain has knocked the temperatures down. we were in the 80s everywhere, now we're pretty much in the 70s, even some places in the 60s. an hour ago, i was showing you the vineland temperature. it was 85 degrees. now it's 67 degrees. one hour.
5:37 pm
66 in medford, cinnaminson, 68. the places that got rainier, they're still cool. the places that got rain a few minutes ago, they're just now getting cool. hamilton, robbinsville, 75 degrees. as you go through the evening, it's going to be basically dry. it's cool. it's going to be a cool start to the day tomorrow. and there could be some showers coming into lehigh valley by tomorrow morning's rush. for most of us, it's going to be just cool and dry. but showers are coming tomorrow. i'll have the timing on that in a few minutes. >> thank you. next at 5:00, a threat of the zika virus is keeping one of nbc's famous faces away from the rio olympics this summer. >> plus, from backyards to businesses. nbc10 has video from another bearing at 5:00. you wanna see something intense?
