happening. >> we are gonna go to an open convention. there is no question. i can't win enough to get to the convention with enough delegates, and neither can cruz. and donald trump would have to win, you know, probably better than 60%. as you know, he's -- he has never got anywhere close to that. >> reporter: on the democratic side, 86 delegates are at stake and the race is starting to get ugly. protesters disrupted clinton at a recent event. >> he wins, we lose. >> oh, i knows bernie people came to say that. we are sorry you're leaving. >> reporter: the latest polls show bernie sanders with narrow lead over hillary clinton. that's good news for the sanders campaign after winning five of the last six contests. idaho, utah, then a western sweep last weekend in alaska, my hawaii, and washington. >> there has been some concern as to whether or not bernie sanders could win a general election. the last poll that i saw here in wisconsin had us in your state
