painkillers. major new guidelines tonight. why the cdc is so concerned. and your money. your taxes. three deductions many people often forget. are you leaving money on the table? good evening. and it's great to have you with us. a make or break night. could donald trump wrap up the nomination? could hillary clinton close the deal? or will bernie sanders supporters decide otherwise? already, the exit polls coming in. voters lining up across five states. this church in cincinnati. outside a polling site in orlando tonight. donald trump telling voters, we can make this happen tonight. but if he doesn't win ohio, will this be a contested convention? and hillary clinton, is she nearly there? what she told our team when asked if she was confident. but right now, the first exit polls. and from ohio tonight, republican voters asked, would they be satisfied if this ends up being a race between donald trump and hillary clinton? more than half, 53% say they'd
6:32 pm
be satisfied with trump. in florida, even more, 60% say they'd be satisfied if it's trump taking on clinton. that's from preliminary exit poll data right now. so, let's get to it tonight. our team standing by. abc's tom llamas in florida with donald trump. >> reporter: tonight, donald trump trying to barrel his way to the republican nomination, asking voters for one more big boost. >> tell your friends, vote for trump. i promise you, i am going to do such a great job. you're going to say, that's the single greatest vote i ever cast. >> reporter: but in ohio, the state's popular governor, standing in trump's way. john kasich, voting today in westerville. >> what do you have to say to donald trump today? >> you're not going to ruin my day after i voted myself for president. i have nothing to say to him. >> reporter: but if kasich wins ohio, trump's chances of locking up the republican nomination are greatly diminished. potentially forcing the battle to a rare contested convention.
6:33 pm
kasich today turning up the heat. >> bimbo. >> dog. >> fat pig. >> real quotes from donald trump about win. >> these comments that were made about women. i have two daughters. they see this stuff. what do you think they think? >> reporter: trump responding on "gma." >> women, if you look at the women's polling, leaving the booths, women, i'm leading by a lot. >> reporter: the billionaire still defensive over the recent scenes of violence at his rallies. in washington today, a scolding from house speaker paul ryan. >> all candidates have an obligation to do what they can do to try and provide an atmosphere of harmony, to reduce the violence, to not incite violence. >> reporter: but trump telling us, he's not changing his tone. >> i don't think i should be toning it down, because i've had the biggest rallies of anybody. we've had very, very little
6:34 pm
difficulty. >> reporter: trump in florida tonight, where there's a by lingual battle to deny him a win. florida senator marco rubio, his campaign on life support -- the only thing that could save him -- a home state victory. >> we're going to get elected president and we're going to turn this country around. >> reporter: but today, rubio saying his campaign goes on, even without a win tonight. >> well, our plan is to continue forward in this campaign, as i said. my campaign's never been built on winning in one particular state. >> tom, a lot of eyes on john kasich in ohio, as you know. if he wins, could help slow down trump? >> reporter: that's right, david. even if donald trump wins florida tonight, but he loses ohio, it's going to be much harder to wrap up this nomination, and it could possibly lead to a contested convention come july. david? >> tom llamas leading us off tonight. tom, we'll see you a bit later. to the democratic side tonight. can hillary clinton lock in the nomination or at least get far closer, or is there a sanders surprise brewing like michigan? preliminary exit polls tonight from ohio showing three quarter
6:35 pm
office democratic voters saying they would be satisfied if clinton is the nominee. nearly as many if it's sanders. and where clinton was borp, illinois, three-quarters satisfied with clinton, but even more if sanders is the nominee. abc's cecilia vega one-on-one with mrs. clinton. what happens when cecilia presses her, is hillary clinton confident going into tonight? >> i hope you all vote before the polls close. >> reporter: hillary clinton fighting to avoid another stinging loss to bernie sanders. >> i need your prayers. >> reporter: trying to win tonight and hoping to once and for all lock in the nomination. her sights set on the crucial battleground of ohio. clinton telling me, she's optimistic about the night ahead. but not confident? that's a word a lot of your supporters might want to hear you say. >> okay, i'm confident. i think optimistic is basically the same thing. i'm confident. i feel very good about the campaign. >> reporter: is tonight the night you could close this deal? >> i feel good about where we are and i think at the end of the night, we'll end up, again,
6:36 pm
significantly ahead in delegates. >> reporter: but when i pressed her -- you lose the midwest tonight, do you still declare victory? >> you know, you keep asking me these questions, which i've answered repeatedly. i will end up this evening with more delegates. this is about delegates. >> reporter: for bernie sanders, everything is on the line. he's outspending clinton in campaign ads in the buckeye state. >> good morning. >> reporter: but the vermont senator needs more than good luck. he needs delegates. >> how are you feeling about tonight? >> i'll tell you in a few hours. >> reporter: clinton already looking ahead to the general election and donald trump. >> when you are inciting mob violence which is what trump is doing in those clips, there's a lot of memories that people have, you know? they're in the dna. people remember mob violence that led to lynching. >> reporter: trump says he hasn't even started to hit clinton yet. this could be a general campaign that is very ugly and very personal. does that give you any pause?
6:37 pm
>> no, not a bit. >> reporter: your face doesn't even move. >> no, not a bit. he can run whatever kind of campaign he wants. i have really thick skin and it's not about me. it's about every american and what we're going to do together. >> cecilia with us live tonight, as well. cecilia, we saw there, she said she's feeling optimistic. you pressed her, is she confident? she said yes there, but what are your sources telling you from inside the campaign? >> reporter: well, david, they are realistic about her chances in the midwest, especially in ohio, where they expect bernie sanders to do well, especially with young voters and white voters there. but look, they are hoping to win in north carolina and here in florida, where they are hoping to have a big victory party tonight. david? >> cecilia, thank you. to the map we go at this hour. five key states holding primaries. but as we pointed out, the stakes enormous in ohio for both parties. let's get right to george, who will lead our coverage in primetime tonight, and george, the front panel of "the
6:38 pm
cincinnati inquirer." the words ohio, it's up to you. so, george, what happens if donald trump wins in ohio, what happens if he loses? >> david, it's a presidential election, it is always up to ohio, no question about that. and tonight is no exception. if donald trump wins tonight, winner take all in ohio, he has a big lead in florida, as well. he will have the argument that he's won the biggest states, got the most delegates and the momentum. he'll have a real shot of wrapping this up before the convention in cleveland. if he loses, if he doesn't get the 66 delegates, he is going to need to get 60% of the delegates going forward in order to wrap up this before the convention. the olds of a contested convention go way up. it will be hard to see how any of the candidates remain in this race can get the delegates they need before cleveland. >> in the meantime, on the democratic side, george, how important is ohio for hillary clinton? >> if she wins ohio tonight on top of north carolina and florida, she'll have a huge delegate lead. almost insurmountable. if she loses, even though she
6:39 pm
may still add to her lead tonight, she will be signaling weakness in a state that democrats need to win come november. >> all right, george stephanopoulos, thank you. we'll see you just a few hours from now in primetime. in the meantime, we want to get to jon karl, because jon, you are seei ining something else ie exit poll datdata? >> reporter: we see, once again, david, strong support for trump on his key issues. including that temporary ban of muslims coming into the united states. but take a look at this. you see 27% of republican voters today say they would not vote for donald trump in the fall. in the general election. the key thing here is, though, look at the other candidates. you see almost the same number saying they would not vote for john kasich, marco rubio, ted cruz. the bottom line, a deeply divided republican party. >> all right, jon karl, thank you. and stay with abc news for the primary results as they come in. we're live tonight throughout this pivotal evening. team coverage on "good morning america" in the morning, as well, and of course, tomorrow
6:40 pm
right here on "world news tonight." meantime this evening, another breaking headline at this hour. a tornado watch across several states, including illinois and missouri, where, of course, they are voting. and, in ohio, this tornado sweeping through, in the past 24 hours. and to south carolina tonight, dangerous driving, a hailstorm near greenville. ginger zee is standing by, but first, abc's alex perez in the storm zone. >> reporter: tonight, ohio residents recovering. >> get underneath something sturdy. >> reporter: those five confirmed tornadoes tearing through the dayton area. >> i looked out the window and the whole neighbor's house was coming at it. >> reporter: ripping the roof of this house. that same system, pounding south carolina with that golf ball-sized hail. in louisiana, the national guard bringing black hawk helicopters to fight flooding. dropping these 1,500-pound sandbags northwest of alexandria. and the sabine river, now shutting down a major highway, interstate 10.
6:41 pm
the swollen waterways devastating communities along the border with texas. our philip mena is in deweyville. >> reporter: here in deweyville, water just keeps coming, shattering 100-year-old flood records here. >> reporter: russell losing both his home and his restaurant. >> all washed away. there are just no words for it. >> reporter: and david, the severe weather not over yet. here in chicago, and across a huge chunk of the midwest, tonight, bracing for another storm that could bring large hail and possibly more tornadoes. david? >> all right, standing by there in chicago, alex, thank you. ginger zee tracking it all and, again, jinger, this affects millions of voters? >> reporter: that's right, david. this area of severe weather reaches all the way from parts of northeast missouri to southwest michigan. the enhanced threat area has a tornado watch that is in effect for tonight until 9:00 p.m. so, cities like peoria,
6:42 pm
springfield, all on alert. this is going to move to the north and east. the low pressure systems rotate counter clockwise. you pick up speed on the back side. high wind warnings from des moines to milwaukee to chicago, most of your day wednesday into early thursday. snow on the north side. david? >> ginger zee at the weather wall tonight. ginger, thank you. to other news, and troubling new details about the uber driver accused of a deadly rampage. new video tonight of his capture. here's abc's gio benitez. >> driver. stick your hands out the window. >> reporter: tonight, for the first time, we're seeing that moment alleged shooter jason dalton was captured. he's quickly handcuffed and taken into custody. this, as we're hearing new 911 calls from the shooting scenes. >> one car is okay. the other one is a mini van and the passenger is not moving. >> reporter: dalton is accused of killing six people that night, three weeks ago. a surviving 16-year-old girl now seen smiling with her cyster at the hospital. police now revealing new
6:43 pm
details. after his arrest, the 45-year-old allegedly telling them that uber literally took over his mind and body and that the app made him feel like a puppet. dalton allegedly describing the logo as a devil figure, saying, "it was almost like art financial intelligence that can tap into your body." and david, a judge had ordered dalton to undergo a mental co competency evaluation. we're waiting for word on that, david. >> gio benitez with us. gio, thank you. and to your health tonight, and a major new headline about prescription pain pills and addiction. this cdc tonight for the first time issuing guidelines for prescribing painkillers, and it comes after our reporting on pain pills and hairn, those brave families. sabrina, who lost her son, a football injury, pain pills, and then the heroin. laurie lost her nephew, prescription pain pills after an injury during a training exercise. doug lost his daughter courtney, too. and we went to the dea, the federal drug enforcement agency
6:44 pm
and listen to what they told us. >> when someone becomes addicted to prescription drugs, it becomes extremely expensive, hard to find, the medicine cabinet is empty at home. and they take that long, dark walk towards heroin. >> and why is that? is it the same high? >> it's the same high. it's a natural progression. >> we heard from so many of you at home, so many parents after our hour on pain pills and then heroin and addiction. so, let's get right to dr. richard besser tonight. this new action from the cdc would seem they know they have a crisis on their hands. >> reporter: yeah, they do. there are 40 deaths a day from these pain medications. doctors are prescribing far too many. >> i was surprised there weren't guidelines before now. but what are they tonight? >> reporter: well, they are saying, doctors, when they are treating patients with chronic pain, aspirin and they say there's no evidence that opioids work long-term and we know they lead to addiction and can be fatal. for those people who have pain, acute pain after surgery, they
6:45 pm
can be treated for three days, seven at the most and switch to something that is much safer. >> you hear about stories of weeks if not months on the opioids. rich besser will stay on this. thank you. there is still much more ahead on "world news tonight" this tuesday. the major subway system shut down in an american city. also, breaking, the manhunt under way right now. a police officer shot, critically wounded. police returning fire. one suspect dead. a second suspect on the run. tack seasx season is here. the real money team back at it tonight. saving you money. are you leaving cash on the table? three simple tips, right after the break. and dust off the hat, crack the whip. a big announcement tonight about indiana jones. we'll be right back. whoa. what's going on here? oh hey allison. i'm val, the orange money retirement squirrel from voya. val from voya? yeah, val from voya.
6:46 pm
quick question, what are voya retirement squirrels doing in my house? we're putting away acorns. you know, to show the importance of saving for the future. so you're sort of like a spokes person? no, i'm more like a metaphor. okay, a spokes-metaphor. no, i'm... you're a spokes-metaphor. yeah. ok. see how voya can help you get organized at voya.com. once i left the hospital after a dvt blood clot. what about my wife... ...what we're building together... ...and could this happen again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? i spoke to my doctor and she told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... ...turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless you doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding.
6:47 pm
don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. 80% but up to 90% fall short in getting key nutrients from food alone. let's do more. add one a day women's 50+ complete multivitamin. with vitamin d and calcium to help support bone health. one a day. next tonight here, millions of americans preparing their taxes. tonight, the real money team is back, with three more deductions

many forget. abc's chief business correspondent rebecca jarvis. >> reporter: there are $1.3 trillion in tax breaks up for grabs. but finding which ones you're eligible for can be a daunting task. especially if you're doing your taxes yourself. >> americans are missing out on lots of deductions and credits. >> reporter: we poured over the tax code, all 6,544 pages of it, and hit the street to flag some of the most overlooked areas. first up, child care. working parents may qualify for a day care or babysitting credit for kids under 13. up to $6,000 for child care. >> that's money that i'm missing out on. >> reporter: medical bills. remember, you may be able to deduct what you spend on dependent's health care cost, even mileage from taking a loved one, including your parents, to and from the doctor can count. >> that's good news to know. >> reporter: and if you are relocating for a job more than 50 miles away.
6:49 pm
