7:05 am
swipe at donald trump who has said he would not oppose japan and south korea getting nuclear weapons. >> the person who made the statements doesn't know much about foreign policy or nuclear policy or the korean peninsula or the world generally. >> how donald trump's statements on abortion could be interesting how it plays with women. of course, we know other candidates and in other political races found statements on abortion issue since the roe v. wade had an impact. >> kerry, thank you. >> this morning, the vermont senator insisting the clinton team owes his team an apology after she accused him of lying of
7:06 am
we have nbc's kristen welker in milwaukee. >> reporter: craig, good morning to you. secretary clinton hoped to be focussing on the general election. instead she is back here in wisconsin where she had added extra events to take on bernie sanders. where she shows no signs of backing down. >> thank you. thank you, green bay. >> reporter: bernie sanders hoping a win on tuesday in wisconsin will make it four straight victories after trouncing clinton in the western caucuses last weekend. and then he slammed clinton for accusing him of lying about her record in the exchange with a protester earlier this week. >> i am so sick of the sanders campaign lying about this. sick of it. >> secretary clinton owes us an apology. we were not lying. >> reporter: the clinton campaign refusing to apologize. with just three days to go u

7:09 am
>> i don't think nationally anything is different. i think people who care about the abortion issue or policy issues already were not with donald trump. trump is about mood affiliation. he is angry. i think he had a bad week in wisconsin. i think the fight he picked with scott walker is stupid. he attacked walker for not raising taxing. that is a weird thing to do in a republican primary. conservative talk radio is a force backing him usually. he will likely do badly wisconsin. we should not assume he will be punished nationally for these things. >> joan, trump's disapproval with women is continuing to plummet. quinnipiac says it is at 70% nationwide. >> negative. >> four years ago, mitt romney was about 40%. assuming he is t
7:10 am
does a candidate like this go on to win a general election? >> there is no way he does that. i disagree a bit with josh. i think the abortion comments will hurt him a little bit. anyone who is paying attention and has a feeling on abortion, pro or con, looks at that and says this man has never given this a thought in his entire privileged life. he used to be pro choice. now anti-abortion. he hasn't thought through why and what will happen. it really annoyed the pro life forces. they are mainly with ted cruz. i think it increases the notion along with his nuclear comments. this guy doesn't think things through well. >> when we look at the race in wisconsin, it's looking very good for ted cruz. if cruz pulls out a win, what does it mean? >> it depends. for one thing, this is probably ted cruz's second more favorable state on
7:11 am
only south dakota is better for him. we move into the northeast states which are more favorable to donald trump. it depends how much he wins. wisconsin allocating for the state. that is a rule that is favorable to donald trump. he tends to do well in states with few republican voters. you get as many for central milwaukee as a rural area of the state. if he loses, he will pick up delegates. if he loses by more than ten votes, he may be shutout. if he loses by single digits, you can chalk that up to this was not a good state. >> joan, quickly here on the democratic side, hillary clinton expected to lose in wisconsin. what, if anything, does that mean for new york? >> i don't think it means anything for new york. sanders has had hard time with other wins and building momentum. >> thank you for joining us. >> thank you. before you go outside, you may be want to bundle up. it
7:12 am

this morning in today's health, as spring is getting under way and mosquitoes are increasing. there is little information on the zika virus. on friday, the centers for disease control and prevention issued important information. we have dr. natalie azar here with us to tell us what it means. let's start with the recommendations. how worried should we be going into mosquito season in the country? >> you know, craig, difficult question to answer because we haven't seen any locally acquired infections from a mosquito infected with virus. all of the locally acquired infections have been sexually transmitted. we have been showing people a map for weeks showing where the cdc thinks the greatest likelihood of zika is in the united states. that area includes southern states
7:42 am
we're also seeing the cdc expanding that scope a bit to include parts of the northeast. >> how do they come up with the map? how do they choose the states? >> based on climate. think about it. a mosquito, the reason we're concerned and pan americas effected is because the mosquito thrives in warm, moist area. areas high and dry, places in the midwest for example, don't need to be as concerned. >> if someone is diagnosed with the zika virus now, what is the cdc recommending? >> for women, if you are diagnosed with zika virus or symptoms consistent with zika, the recommendation is wait eight weeks before trying to conceive. if you are a man, who has been infected with zika virus, or had symptoms of zika, the recommendation is to wait six months. if you are a man and woman and have traveled to an area, but experienced no symptoms and have not been
7:43 am
recommendation for men and women is to wait eight weeks. craig, i think it is important to make mention of a report that came out in the england journal last week that highlighted one case report of a pregnant woman where zika virus was detected up to ten weeks after exposure. i mention this because our guidance on waiting eight weeks right now for women is based on previously understanding how long the virus remains in the blood. i don't want to get mired down in the details, but it is important to highlight that guidance from the cdc will evolve and changing and they will update as new information is coming in. the cdc has not made a change in the recommendation, but understanding that pregnant women may harbor the virus for longer than we originally thought than 11 days. may change the guidance moving forward. as of today, t i
