role rolls? why were people told they were in the wrong polling place time and time again? why were voters being told absolute wrong informaon wtin they got to vote? ernie: okay. the head of the board of elections says it went fine for an overwhelming majority of voters. and those voters have established donald trump and hillary clinton as the clear frontrunners tonight as they try to sew up their nominations and focus on each other and the general election. stacey delikat has more on the changing tone of this presidential race. >> reporter: donald trump left home surrounded by secret service in a presidential fashion the morning after his decisive new york win. >> we're going to be -- really, legitimately, so great again and i can't wait. >> reporter: trump using his victory speech to pivot away from a nasty and drawn out primary battle towards the general election. it wasn't what he said, but how
>> so we don't have much of a race, based on what i'm seeing on television. senator cruz is just about mathematically eliminated. >> reporter: senator cruz? what about this line? >> lying ted, the bible held high, he put it down and then he lies. >> a lot of people noticed that he wasn't lying ted this time around. and i think that's a nod to the fact that he's trying to signal to the party establishment that he's ready. >> reporter: trump spent a good portion of the speech talking about issues like the economy, benefits for veterans and education. an associate professor of political science at hunter college says the substance signals a shift. >> his tone in many respects seemed a little more presidential. >> the race for the democratic nomination is in the home stretch and victory is in sight. >> reporter: across town, hillary clinton also looking ahead, directing her attacks at donald trump and republicans and

clinton is getting a lot of negativity. what's sanders going to do? >> that's everybody's big question. it's probably too early for hillary clintoto a those voters to support her, but it's plenty o time for bernie sanders toigur out how he's going to manage the distance between continuing to grow a grassroots movement, which he said he's pledged to do beyond the convention, and to try to support the democratic nominee. how does he do that? that remains to be seen. big question. ernie: he was quiet about that today. didn't hear too much about it. let's talk about trump. big win. now we're stain tog s little change we're hearing more of issues, a little less nasty comments and so forth. what do you expect from donald trump? he's got negativity issues. will thi now change the brokered convention idea? >> he has a plausible shot at 1237. it's not a lock, but he has states composed for him demographically. they're winnerake all. he could have a couple hundred
