for trump and clinton? >> the code word of the minute is unity. the minute they talk about unity, i want my opponents to drop out of the race. we heard that word from both donald trump and hillary clinton. everything now is about those two commanding front-runners trying to convince the others to get out of the race. >> cruz and sanders don't appear at this moment to be ready to drop out and unify, if you will. can trump avoid a contested convention? looking at the numbers, can he do that? >> it's more possible this morning than it was last night. >> at the beginning, you said it was not possible. >> you know? it's still a tough path. he still has to do well in california and the other upcoming states but you got to say the momentum out of new york has increased the chances of that. >> staying on the topic of numbers here. if current polling
