7:08 am
>> got lost in the shorthand. thanks very much. >> now to the democratic candidates. bernie sanders drawing massive crowds at a star-studded rally overnight hoping to pull off a big upset in the primary here in new york as he prepares to face off against hillary clinton in a debate tonight. abc's cecilia vega has the latest. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: good morning to you. after all the big rally, all the fighting here in new york for hillary clinton and bernie sanders, it comes down to tonight. the face-off on that debate stage and this is the debate they could not agree on. well, it's happening now. the final opportunity to make their case. it was his biggest new york crowd so far, one of the biggest of his entire campaign. so many people they climbed trees to catch a glimpse. nearly 30,000 in all pouring into and spilling out of historic washington square park, a sea of faces under that famous arch. some of them famous themselves from rosario
7:09 am
lee. >> is brooklyn in the house? >> reporter: and when the man they came to see finally took the stage, even he seemed taken aback. >> there are a lot of people here tonight. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: sanders riling up the crowd by going after his rival. >> if somebody gets paid 225,000 for a speech, it must be an unbelievably extraordinary speech. >> reporter: but in a stark contrast a tale of two very different campaign stops. at the same time hillary clinton held a new york rally too at a community center in the bronx, 1,200 supporters, not one mention of sanders, just that other guy. >> unlike donald trump we're not saying some people don't belong, we're not saying some people are not wanted. >> reporter: for both sides tuesday's vote is a must win. and
7:10 am
double-digit lead, this morning sanders is feeling not just hopeful but confident. >> i think that if we have a large voter turnout on tuesday, we're going to win this thing. thank you all very much. >> reporter: these were two very different events overnight. clinton spoke for 14 minute, sanders went on for more than an hour. here's the catch, though. new york is a closed primary meaning only democrats can vote and you guys know this has helped hillary clinton. >> so far it has, cecilia, thank you very much. the debate tonight and sanders heads to the vatican as well tomorrow. more on this now from jon karl down in washington. new poll out this morning that showed the two republican front-runners actually having some issues with the general electorate. >> reporter: that's right. this poll looks at the republican candidates and shows that the most of the country simply doesn't like them. if you look at donald trump, his unfavorability rating is at 67% of the general public of registered voters but look
7:11 am
he is now at 53% unfavorability that is the highest unfavorability he has seen throughout this campaign. he is growing more unpopular by the day. the only candidate not disliked by most of the electorate is john kasich and, of course, he's mathematically eliminating by clinching before the election. >> staying in right now. at the same time we're hearing reports that corey lewandowski, the trump campaign manager who got in that tussle with a reporter a couple months back is going to be cleared of charges by the prosecutor this morning. not going to pursue the charges but there is a big shake-up now inside the trump campaign. >> reporter: huge changes inside the campaign. corey lewandowski is not going anywhere but what trump has done is bringing in political professionals. he's bringing in the establishment, george, the test big hire is rick wiley, the campaign manager for scott walker, he is also the former political director for the republican national committee so as trump complains about the rules he is now bringing in
7:12 am
well and can navigate that system, the question is whether or not it's too late. >> and he's got a lot of favorable states coming up. okay, jon karl, thanks very much. to that big scare at sea. a dangerous coast encounter with russian jets raising echoes of the cold war and shows them repeatedly flying near a u.s. warship. the baltic sea. abc's chief global affairs correspondent martha raddatz has the latest. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, robin. this morning the russians are saying they observed all safety precautions when flying by that u.s. warship, but there was nothing safe about this. the russians have not come this close to u.s. ships in decades. it's not just a dangerously close flyby, one within 30 feet of the u.s. destroyer, it is one of the most aggressive russian acts against the u.s. military since the end of the cold war. russian
7:13 am
that simulated an attack and not just once, but over and over. in the last two days the jets making more than 30 passes over the american ship in international waters. and roaring at just 100 feet off the baltic sea causing a wake in the water as if a giant speedboat had raced by. >> it's totally unsafe. no reason to be that low. no room for error and lots of room for disaster. >> reporter: and it wasn't just the attack jets, the russians had a helicopter flying low altitude circles around the u.s. warship, more than half a dozen times. the americans on the destroyer repeatedly radioed the russian pilots of the helicopter and the jets in both english and russian but the transmissions were ignored. >> could they be entering a new chapter of looking to intimidate nato in the northern baltics or is this something where they're looking to distractat
7:14 am
ukraine? >> reporter: this morning they continue to work diplomatic channels but over the last few years the russians have only gotten more aggressive with these flybyes and nothing the u.s. has done so far, george, has stopped that. >> boy, so aggressive. okay, thanks very much. we move on and get the latest on that affluenza teen who fled the country after violating probation for a deadly drunk driving accident. 19-year-old ethan couch has now appeared in court for the first time as an adult sentenced to two years in jail. abc's matt gutman has the details. >> 180 days in the county jail. >> reporter: that ruling against the so-called affluenza teen ethan couch stunning the courtroom. >> 180 days in this case. >> reporter: and in the third. >> consecutive to the other cases. >> reporter: and the fourth. >> after you spend 180 days in your other three cases -- >> reporter: in total he ordered had him to serve 720 days in county lockup, nearly two full yes
7:15 am
deaths of four people in 2013. >> you're not getting out of jail today. >> reporter: if ethan couch seemed to sleepwalk through his juvenile court trial, controversially sentenced to probation his first court appearance as an adult was a rude awakening. >> this favoritism he is still a kid or juvenile is gone. it expired at 12:00 monday. he's now an adult. he needs to be treated like one. >> reporter: couch has been in jail since january when he was extradited to texas after fleeing to mexico. on the run with his mother after ethan appears to have violated parole by being at this boozy party. on wednesday he was ushered into court by the same sheriff who had vowed to track him down. >> i think that, you know, it's hit him that this is a life that what he feared if not expected. >> reporter: sporting a shaggy beard his blond roots starting to grow back now after he dyed his hair in mexico as an apparent disguise.
7:16 am
the prosecution's request for a 16-month detention adding eight additional months for violating violation and prohibiting him from drinking or driving for another seven years. >> do you understand that. >> yes, sir. >> reporter: as part of his original sentence he was ordered to in-state rehab but court documents show his millionaire parents told the state they were unable to pay for it so taxpayers footed the bill shelling out nearly $190,000. couch's parents chipping in just about 5%. george. >> okay, matthew, thanks very much. let's go to amy with the other top stories. missing catholic priest in florida. >> a man described as a person of interest was taken into custody overnight in the search for that florida priest. reverend renee robert was last seen on sunday. police believe foul play is involved in his disappearance but they're not elaborating. overnight police tracked down 28-year-old steven murray

7:34 am
the judge sort of went to a middle ground, could have done probation, which is what the defense was asking for, the prosecutor is asking for up to 54 years behind bars. the son's testimony was critical here. not just that he is saying, you know, don't blame dad, i forgive dad. but that the kid seemed so well adjusted. the problem with this in my view is this is still a light sentence for all the sorts of charges you're talking about, the kidnapping charges and tampering and forgery and pled guilty to a whole host of charges here. you know, if we judge these kinds of cases by what happens to the kid later, that sends the message that, you know what, kidnap your kid if you need to, figure it out later if you can make -- turn your kid into a great kid then it's okay. this was someone who took their 3-year-old child away from its mother over a breakup dispute, changed his name and i understand, i have
