win and net as many delegates. his path to the nomination gets tougher if he doesn't win in new york. >> thank you. >> let's talk about the republicans for a second. where new york is all but a lock for donald trump. but at a moment where every delegate counts, it will be a race to the finish for trump and cruz. nbc's katy tur is here with that story. >> good morning. every delegate counts because trump needs to avoid a contested convention where cruz could take the nomination on a subsequent ballot. that is why trump's team is beefing up his inner circle and focusing on scoring a big win in new york state. donald trump continuing to decry the rules, but insisting he will come out on top. >> it's a disaster and not fair. we will win anyway. we will have our

7:15 am
meeting with low income meetings. this is something the clinton campaign has to deal with. she has to go with the high dollar fund-raisers. bernie sanders gets in front of a microphone and says hey, accepted money. it states he is part of the working class. i think this dichotomy for the weekend. the clinton campaign doesn't think it will hurt her. are her potential republican challenge er taking note? yes. >> she is ahead by 17 points. you look at the crowds with bernie sanders. these talk about this for a moment. bernie sanders. does he have a realistic path or is he a spoiler? >> the sanders campaign say they have a realistic path. they look at may
7:16 am
they can do well. oregon, possibly west virginia. some of the other may states. the reality is and we have been saying this for a long time. in order for him to win, he that's win bigger states. new york, pennsylvania, new jersey, connecticut. by big margins. that's why a loss here is so devastating because it is the first test he may not be able to do that. that becomes tougher for him. >> you have to flip the number of super delegates. we have new polling. nbc marist poll with donald trump with a commanding lead in new york state. 54% to 25% for kasich and 16% for ted cruz. he write his op-ed writing about the rules that have been in place for some time. why pick this fight now? what's with the timing? >> it's very important for the trump campaign to appear like they are not on a losing track. it is becom
7:17 am
get to the magic number of delegates they need. 1,237. by decrying the rules saying this is not fair, they are able to galvanize support and come off as still the winners despite the rules. what is really interesting is "the wall street journal" he wasn't calling out rnc or he wasn't calling out reince priebus. he has changed the structure in his campaign with more experience who realize he has to get along with the rnc and not alienate party loyalists who are often times delegates. he needs those delegates to avoid a contested convention. that does not benefit him. ted cruz is better organizing. he could do well on a second or third ballot. >> great conversation. thank you. thank you so much. now to the investigation into the tragedy at the palm beach
