8:03 am
your numbers for you, around 70 degrees. a lot of location. that is how it goes early this morning. it is very, very mild out there. and, not a lot of cooling last night, obviously, we are still under the regime here. of westerly air flow, i mean, it is very dominant and prevalent here but it is overall a lot lighter today. the winds overall cross the interior and toward the coastal areas, a sea breeze may develop along the beach front and should help to keep temperatures down, kind of, sort of, along the beach front and low and mid 80s versus the business of upper 80s, and close to 90 today. west of i-95. 85 by 5:00 and by 8:00, down to 79. we officially heat things up and don't efficiently cool things down. how it goes, i have changes, a rain chance begins to rise into the weekend and then temperatures take you a big dive by monday. around 70 there, maybe a little breezy from the north. with 51 that morning low and no chance of rain kicking off next work week and the weekend,
8:04 am
traffic. >> kristin: good morning, major delays on i-4, this first crash at maitland boulevard. it is causing back-ups to lake mary, the westbound lane, i-4 at maitland boulevard. and i want to take you to another crash, further west, this is at kaley avenue. it has two lanes blocked, only two lanes are getting by and it is causing some significant slowdowns. i want to show you what i'm talking about, right here, a lot of red on the maps. here is fairbanks, kaley, you can't see it. it is further down underneath the live drive traffic banner. but those delays are going all the way up to fairbanks, so this is something you want to avoid, i-4 if you can to i-4 westbound. taking a look at our drive times, a ton of red, i-4 westbound, lake mary boulevard to colonial, will take you 55 minutes, eastbound, i-4 from the attractions to downtown will take you 21 minutes and, if you are using the 408, this morning, the 417 to downtown, will take you 25 minutes, john and amy, back to you. >> amy: thanks, this morning
8:05 am
are closer to clinching their party's nominations. >> john: one of the contests too close to call. ryan joins us now in studio with how the presidential races shaping up this morning. >> ryan: good morning. fascinating night, a big night for hillary clinton and donald trump and a very close race in missouri. they have a winner on either side. first we want to hear from clinton and trump this morning. >> we are moving closer to securing the democratic party nomination and winning this election in november! >> we're going to win it and make or country rich again. we're going to make or country great again. >> and look at the map, trump wins three states and look on the far left, actually the northern marietta islands voted, tiny, nine delegates an trump won and it is the win in florida which was a huge win for senator marco rubio out of the race. and, the race in missouri too close to call on both sides. trump leads by less than 2,000
8:06 am
close enough for a recontinue. we'll see if they go that route. and john kasich won his home state of ohio, first and only victory, the primary season. and the democratic side, the question mark from missouri, appears if clinton wins that, she's ahead by less than 2,000 votes, again, will have swept smiling face from bernie sanders on the map. of course, clinton claims victory in missouri and we'll see if she gets that. and we leave you with that. a fascinating fox exit hole poll found 50% of nondonald trump voters would consider a third-party, over 50% who did not vote for donald trump would consider a third-party candidate. >> john: interesting, bernie sanders supporters say that, too. and, our political analyst joins us, and start with the northern marietta islands. a big night. wow, it came out of nowhere and rick keller joins me, and we spoke with marco rubio live and asked what happened if he'd lose
8:07 am
>> we're going to utah, either way, this difference is, i'd much go to utah, the winner of the primary with the momentum than someone who didn't win the florida but we're going to utah nonetheless. >> john: i see the talk this morning is, well, somebody cut a deal with him. who knows. why did he get out after last night? >> he had to. the math was not there and the fund-raising would have dried up. getting out and trying to be optimistic aren't thinking about your future and thinking about your future was the only ticket he had. >> john: amy showed us a poll, where do marco rubio supporters go. they are not going for donald trump. as the people drop out, donald trump has his core group but people are not gravitating for him. what does it mean if he gets the >> we'll see. i can tell you from being at bike week and thousands of people there, it is a broad cross-section of folks who were there for trump. surprised me, the guy who got out of prison next to the neurosurgeon and has a lot of
8:08 am
one positive is a huge increase in voter participation. i suspect a lot of marco rubio's folks go to cruz, but, still, trump is in the drivers seat clearly in terms of getting the nomination. >> john: democratic side, quickly, bernie sanders supporters say they'll be with him until the end. but is there any hope for him? hillary seems to be on a roll. >> hillary clinton has it locked up. bernie sanders has the 18 and 19-year-olds because he wants free college and legalized pot and i'm no stephen hawking but that is what is attractive about him. hillary clinton has it locked you be. >> john: there are news stories about bernie sanders supporters, not going for hillary, and some will go for donald trump. a weird dynamic right now, where you have the far left who would go with the republican nominee. because we'll take an outsider, and we mean any outsider, this year. >> yes, i guess the common denominator,people want a revolution and aren't happy with
8:09 am
want to shake things up and see banner as someone who -- bernie sanders as doing a revolution an trump doesn't like what is going on up there. 2/3 of the people think we're on the wrong track and trump tapped into that more than anybody, really. >> john: political analyst, former congressman rick kelly, appreciate your time today. 8:08 on "good day orlando." we'll have much more coming up. >> amy: right now, investigators still trying to figure out what sparked a massive fire that destroyed an iconic cocoa beach mansion. the fire broke out at 8:30 last night. on 3rd street and atlantic avenue, the house was once owned by al newhart who founded u.s.a. today and florida today. he died three years ago and we'll pass on details of the investigation as soon as we get them. also happening now, hundreds of homeless people living in volusia county will soon have a place to go. >> luanne joins us in studio with more on what is happening there. >> luanne: good morning to you both. last night the volusia county school board decided to turn one
