8:01 am
>> why did two racehorses die at pimlico the very same day? and bear attack. the camping trip nightmare. the bear that came out of nowhere, grabbing this man's head in its powerful jaws. >> i remember feeling like the bear was swallowing me. >> how he got away. telling his harrowing story right here this morning. hey, good morning. let's get straight to the brand-new numbers showing a dramatically tightened race for the white house. >> according to an abc news/"washington post" poll released overnight, donald trump holds a two-point lead. 46 to 44 over hillary clinton. this is quite a flip. as recently as march, clinton was leading trump by nine points. >> both candidates have real challenges going forward. 60% of americans view trump
8:02 am
unfavorably. for clinton, 56%. this makes the most unpopular candidates since we started conducting these polls decades ago. >> they're both still clearly polarizing. trump has the momentum. this, while clinton deals with a still unsettled situation in her own party with bernie sanders telling our george stephanopoulos he's staying in the race. we'll hear from george in just a moment. we start with mary bruce in washington. hi, mary. >> reporter: hi, good morning. now that he's the presumptive nominee, republican voters are unifying behind donald trump and behind one common goal. defeating hillary clinton. this morning, hillary clinton is striking back. >> you want to imagine what trump's america will look like. picture more kids at risk of violence and bigotry. >> reporter: speaking at a trayvon martin foundation event, for mother who is have lost children to gun violence, clinton condemned trump's position on guns.
8:03 am
>> this is someone running to be president of the united states of america. a country facing a gun violence epidemic. and he's talking about more guns in our schools. >> reporter: this, after trump locked up the endorsement of the nra. >> crooked hillary clinton is the most anti-gun, anti-second amendment candidate. ever to run for office. she wants to abolish the second amendment. she wants to take your guns away. >> reporter: new lines of attack at trump is getting a bump from republicans ling up behind their presumptive nominee. trump and clint reason now in a dead heat among registered voters according to a new abc news/"washington post" poll. bill clinton is urging voters to help end hillary's grueling primary fight. >> she needs to go into that convention with the wind at her back. she needs to say what she believes, which is that at least she and senator sanders have had the right debate in this country. >> reporter: trump has work to do, especially with hispanic voters. >> national hispanic christian. three great words.
8:04 am
>> reporter: upping his outreach in this video message of california hispanic e evangelical leaders. >> we're going to take care of you. we're going to work with you. you're going to be very happy. you're going to like president trump. >> reporter: as the gap between them closes, there is something else keeping trump and clinton together. both are wildly disliked. they're the two most unpopular presidential candidates in the history of our polling. dan? >> thank you, mary. for more on all this let's bring in abc news chief anchor george stephanopoulos. let's start with the new poll. for a long time, the conventional wisdom was, if donald trump became the nominee, whoever he faced would beat him handily. that is clearly not the case according to the new poll. so what is going on? >> it's real race. largely, over the last several weeks since ted cruz dropped out and the republican race basically ended, donald trump has done a pretty good job of bringing the republican party together. you see that in the poll. most republicans say they'll get
8:05 am
behind him. and support him. he's also picked up -- this is an interesting swing. it could be significant for the fall. he has reversed his deficit among independent voters. he has a double-digit lead over hillary clinton amongst independents. if that holds, he's got a great chance of winning. >> hillary clinton is fighting a two-front battle. because bernie sanders is telling you he's not getting out of the race. you have an exclusive interview with him coming up on your show this morning. let's take a sneak peek here. >> we need a campaign, an election coming up, which does not have two candidates who are really very strongly disliked. i don't want to see the american people voting for the lesser of two evils. i want the american people to be voting for a vision of economic justice. of social justice. of environmental justice. of racial justice. that is the campaign we are running. and that's why we're getting the support we are. >> is that how you would describe hillary clinton running against donald trump? the lesser of two evils?
8:06 am
>> well, if you look -- well, no, i wouldn't describe it. that's what the american people are saying. >> how big a problem is bernie sanders for hillary clinton right now? >> it's holding her back. no question. if you look at the poll again. 15% of people that voted for president obama over mitt romney in 2012 are now supporting donald trump. not hillary clinton. and in another startling finding. we know that bernie sanders is very strong among millennials. 18 to 29-year-olds. he does well with them. barack obama had a huge advantage with them in 2012. hillary clinton right now is only even with donald trump among 18 to 29-year-olds. that points up an opportunity for her as well. if, when this race is over, if bernie sanders gets behind her, you could see the kind of bounce for hillary clinton that donald trump got once the republican race effectively ended. >> but if you look at this poll, you also see some big problems for donald trump. 58% say he's unqualified to be president. 76% says he doesn't show enough
8:07 am
respect to people with whom he disagrees. others say he needs to release his tax returns. >> these are the issues hillary clinton will hammer home. that he doesn't have the temperament to be president. you can't trust him in the oval office. he'll have to help himself on those numbers if he's going to be competitive in november. >> george stephanopoulos, thank you. i want to remind everybody, george has a big show this morning. you can see much more of his one on one with bernie sanders coming up on "this week." later this morning on abc. george, thanks again. >> thank you, dan. turning now to the latest on the egyptair crash. investigators are hoping the new debris they're revooefing could hold answers as to why the airline went down in the m mediterrane mediterranean. this as we hear the last exchange between the pilots and air traffic controllers. >> reporter: moments ago, we learned the egyptian president is deploying a submarine capable of diving about 10,000 feet to the search area. that's about the depth they believe the wreckage is lying at. now, we talked about the recordings from those pilots.
8:08 am
they're chillingly upbeat given what was about to happen to them. this morning, as the grim visual confirmation of the flight's violent end grows, now the first audio of the moments just before the egyptair flight disintegrated. >> hello, hello. egyptair 804. >> reporter: that recording between the flight and the air traffic control early thursday. the pilot's final words almost disturbingly calm. >> egyptair 804. good night. >> thank you so much, good day. a good night. >> reporter: and so, four days after the crash, investigators hoping finding debris and the wreckage could yield crews. these u.s. p-3 aircraft now on patrol 24 hours a day over the waters. as planes scout from above today, teams in small inflatables set to scoop up the debris. a sad collection gathered on ship's deck. warped pieces of metal with the egyptair logo.
8:09 am
the ragged and water-logged recommend in a minutes of a seat. a life jacket that was never inflated. and also, the possession of the people that plane carried. clothes. a woman's shoe. a purse. what you don't see, say egyptian officials, are the human remains they found. as search crews scour the sea, families mourn. grief bringing this grandmother to her knees as hundreds gathered at a cairo church service to say farewell to one of the flight crew's members. even though egyptair and the egyptian government have not officially declared the 66 passengers and crew aboard that plane as dead, they have now all been mourned in funerals by their families. there is literally no hope for survivors. paula? >> matt gutman, thank you. we would like to bring in abc news aviation contributor steve ganyard right now. steve, good morning to you. >> good morning, paula. >> france's bureau of
8:10 am
transportation say the information doesn't tell us where the fire was and whether it was malevolent or technical. in the evidence you have seen so far, are you any closer to determining what took it down? >> i think we can say we have hard evidence there was a mechanical problem on the jet. a few days ago, we were saying, including me, that it was likely a bomb. now we have evidence that something went mechanically wrong. >> still no claim of responsibility. by a terror group. but "the new york times" saying there was a cryptic message written on this particular plane in arabic that said, quote, we will bring this plane down. this was written by aviation workers several years ago at cairo's airport. what do you make of this? >> not too much. that was during a time of domestic political unrest. with the advent of a new regime. it happened so long ago, i don't think it is relevant here. the real thing that is telling, we don't have a claim by a terror group. so it's sort of like a murder mystery.
8:11 am
if you take away the motive and you have a logical explanation, that it may be a mechanical problem, you tend to lean towards the mechanical problem rather than something that involves terror. >> as for the wreckage, we just heard, in matt's reporting, egypt has dispatched a submarine to look for the crash site. does this say that they're closer to discovering the blacks boxes? >> it's encouraging that they know that the time is ticking. we have about three weeks left before the batteries in the pinger give out. it's good that they're moving things into the area to find the black box. it's important to find the airplane, find out what went wrong. if it's terror, we need to find out why -- who the terrorists were and why it might not happen again. on the other hand, if this airplane has a problem, which, if it was a mechanical problem, we need to figure that out, too. because it's twoumpb one of the most widely used airplanes in the world. >> thank you, steve ganyard. dan? thank you, paula.
8:12 am
the other aviation story we're following the morning is the infuhr rating congestion at the airports. this morning, one major airline making its own moves to address the problem. adrienne bankert is on the story from new york's laguardia airport. adrienne, good morning. >> reporter: yes, good morning to you, too, dan. just as really close to the start of the summer travel season. a lot of people concerned that we'll see a repeat of the crazy-long lines we have seen across the country. in places like chicago. amid hashtags like i hate the wait on social media, the tsa is apologizing. meanwhile, one major airline is promising to get passengers on their planes on time. this morning, the big push to cut the longer-than-ever security lines at airports. >> i've missed three flights because of, you know, standing in line. >> reporter: american airlines taking matters into their own hands, pumping out $4 million. the airliner equally upset as
8:13 am
passengers with the three-hour lines. the airline's c.o.o. slamming the government saying the long lines are unacceptable to all of us and the federal government can and should do better. american says the money will be used to hire contractors performing nonscreening functions like line management. and will look to hire more canine screeners to ease congestion. >> look at the chaos. every check point is like this. >> these lines are ridiculous. i travel a lot. >> reporter: the tsa says the number of their employees has been dropping. the result? frustrated passengers waiting longer than ever. and screening areas severely understaffed. >> just trying to do everything we can to get through the lines. >> reporter: while congress has thrown $34 million at the tsa to hire an extra 768 screeners, homeland security says that's a drop in the bucket. not nearly enough to handle the millions of passengers heading out on summer vacations beginning next weeke
8:14 am
to heavily promote the tsa precheck program. it's supposed to cut wait times for passengers. the airline has received numerous complaints that those lines are not always open. they're asking the tsa to commit to honor the program. paula? >> there doesn't seem to be a great solution for any of this. thank you for your reporting this morning. well, the mud, rain, and fog created the perfect setting for an upset at the preakness stakes. exaggerator ended the triple crown quest for derby winner, nyquist. these two horses have been going at it for awhile. it took five tries. one tough day on the track where two other horses died. tony reali joins us. great to have you, tony. >> we'll not have a triple crown winner this year. sad news for horse racing fans. not the only on a misty, muddy day at the track. >> exaggerator has turned the tables! he has won the preakness stakes! >> reporter: overnight, horse
8:15 am
racing's triple crown dreams dashed. kentucky derby winner and heavy favorite nyquist losing at the preakness. >> they're off. >> reporter: the heavy rain turning the track into a sloppy mess. that didn't slow down a blazing start. nyquist off to an early lead. by the first turn, the race was neck and neck. >> they surround nyquist early on. >> reporter: down the stretch, nyquist unable to break away from the pack and his bitter rival. >> his nemesis is five lengths ahead of him. >> reporter: exaggerator splashing and dashing his way to the finish line. >> congratulations to go mother nature. >> what an exceptional horse exaggerator is. >> reporter: before the triple crown hopes were spoiled, a somber day at the track. >> homeboy kris gets home. >> reporter: after a long wait, 9-year-old long shot homeboykris suffered a heart attack. three races laert, again disaster on the track. this time, a 4-year-old filly
8:16 am
falling on the turn, fracturing her front leg. forcing officials to put her down. >> it's so untimely. so unfortunate to have two horses lose their lives when the world, really is watching. >> reporter: as for nyquist, he'll have his own place in the record books. perfect through the preakness. falling short of matching the historic triple crown win of american pharoah last year. >> he's still an amazing horse. we're so proud of him. so blessed to be a part of him. and we're going to live to fight another day. >> reporter: horse racing a sport with harsh realities. and one that teaches a lesson to us once again. what american pharoah accomplished last year was special. it's a hard thing to do. >> you promised this came in bunches. we were going to hold you to that. >> i said it has come in clusters in the past. but what we saw yesterday, exaggerator, a horse familiar with running in the slop. his mudder was a mudder. not sure if you knew that, dan.
8:17 am
>> tough for the jockeys, too. >> they wear about nine or ten goggles. they pull them back over their head every ten seconds on the track because that's how muddy it is. >> news you can use. thank you very much. we appreciate it. >> thank you, tony. let's check the other morning headlines and get it over to our good friend, ron. >> good morning, everyone. we begin with the takedown of the top taliban leader. afghan officials saying the chief mullah akhtar mansour was killed saturday in a u.s. drone strike in a remote part of pack stan. pentagon officials saying he was the intended target of the attack on the vehicle he was traveling in. secretary of state john kerry said mansour posed an imminent threat to afghan and u.s. personnel in afghanistan. now, dozens of climbers sick or injured on mt. everest. this after two people died after reaching the summit there. a nepalese official says 30 people have gotten frostbite or become ill. this comes after a dutch man and
8:18 am
australian woman died of apparent altitude sickness on their way descending from the peak. they were the first fatalities on the mountain this year. now, a dramatic traffic stop out of milwaukee, wisconsin. caught on police dash cam. check this out. deputies pulling over a driver for speeding. the driver pulls her car in reverse, you see it there slamming into the squad car, and drives away, or tries to drive away. one of the deputies falling and rolling into the oncoming traffic while another grabbed and held on to the door. officers were able to catch up with the driver. 23-year-old kelvina freeman. she would have probably faced a ticket and a fine. she now faces 45 years in prison. and with the official start of summer still days away, weeks away, really, you may be thinking that parading around in your swimsuit -- well, some people in colorado couldn't wait another month. these skiers hitting the slopes in the board shorts and two-pieces in the largest swim wear parade in north america.
8:19 am
rachel likes this. some dodging beach balls. even wearing inner tubes. >> oh, my goodness. >> the late-season snow and cool temperatures could keep resorts open until the official start of summer, which indra says occurs on the 21st, 22nd of june. >> 0th. yeah, that's where you are, right? >> to the extent she's willing got video for you today, this is coming out of the western portions of kansas not the same. looks dangerous out there. the good news with the tornados it did not produce any damage. the concern as we go through the week we'll continue to see the severe weather. cool air in the pacific northwest banking up next to the warm air in the plains. that clash will bring that instability. once again today it's tornado alley. we're talking the planes through texas. looking at the severe weather threat.

[ laughter ] >> she pokes fun at the fact that people are staring at her while she's in her car in the parking lot. and the fact that she got this mask for herself, and not for her kids. >> at the end of the day it doesn't go in the toy box. it goes in my room. >> she made this video because she needed to share something
8:41 am
