7:06 am
i hea what you said about, somebody said, what are you going to start now? last week, they spent $30 million on negative ads. >> the more they call you a con man and a fraud, the more your supporters dig in their heels? >> that's one of the reasons i did what i did last night. i brought out a magazine which i have. mitt romney got up last week and talked about the stakes. well, we have a great stake division. we have a great magazine. we have a great -- all of the things he talked about, you know, i have. he went t tough a list of things. i don't want to even do that, but what he said was a lie. it was fraudulent, and he shouldn't have done that. i understand where he's coming from. he had a very horrible loss, andnd he hasn't recovered from it. >> you're making me hungry. >> i know. matt, the truth is, you had a loss and h h hasn't recovered. we have to recover as a party. thth tremendous positive energy in the party.
7:07 am
the pos. 65% up. millions of millions of people, some people have never voted before, and they're voting for trump. they're voting in the party. >> that's a good way to get to the next question. on the election nights you've been saying, i'm a unifier. i can unify the party. yet, you do have this big segment of the party, orthodox conservative, traditional republicans, who are terrified at the prospect of your candidacy. to the extent it is on you to do so, how can you unify? how can you get them over to your side? >> okay, savannah, we have something going on that't' the biggest political story all over the world, and it's what's happpping with the republican party. you see it better than anybody. where millions ofeople are coming out and voting in the primaries, millions more than four years ago. 65% more. whereas, the democrats are down 30% and 35%. no spirit behind hillary and
7:08 am
there's nothing to be spirited about. what happens is we have something thatf we could embrace it, we're going to have a massive victory in november. instead of all of this negative stuff, i was at the tournament last week, where adam scott won, and i turn on the television and every time there is a commercial, it was a negative ad in florida about me. a horrible and false ad. these are false ads. these are disgusting, false ads that were written by peoplethat are absolutely haters. if this party came together, matt, nobody could beat it. that's one of the things i respect. paul ryan called me, such a smart ll, such a wonderful call. >> mr. trump, as always, thanks for your time. we appreciate it. >> thank you very much, matt. >> wif thee have the wines, steaks in there, magazines. >> a lot of things. >> branding has been accomplished. as we mentioned, the upset of the night weptnt to sanders stunning hillary clinton in
7:09 am
will it reshape the democratic race and the delegate race? kristen welker has more on that. morning. >> good morning to you. secretary clinton wakes up with more delegates this morning, but it is senator sanders who has new momentum after the major upset in michigan. now, the win is significant because it shows he can be competitive in these larger, more diverse states. a lot of folks asking this morning exactly what happened. there are indications this morning that clinton's ground game in michigan may have been lacking. sanders' message resonated. he hammered clinton for supporting nafta, unpopular in michigan and throughout the midwest. even sanders seemed surprpred by the win, speaking to reporters in a hastily arranged press gathering after the results came? >> what we have done is created the kind of moementum that we need to win. once again, this has been a fantastic night in michigan. we are very grateful.
7:10 am
numbers out this morning. let's take a look at florida. secretary clintnt firmly in the lead. she topped senator sanders, 62% to 32%. in ohio, she's leading 52% t@ 43%. but michigan underscores that this democratic race just got a whole lot more competitive everywhere. >> kristen, thank you so much. let's bring in chuck todd, moderator of "meet the press," and steve kornacki. fellas, good morning to you. >> morning. democrats. the michigan victory for sanders, did it seem a surprise? well, maybe most to sanders and his team. what does it mean for momentum and the delegate mass? >> the delegate mass, it didn't do anything. hillary clinton got more delegates because of her dominance in mississippi. he actually lost ground. bubu it does mean something in momentum. i think it's a reminder to hillary clinton, she has work to do to gain trust of sort of the
7:11 am
party when it comes to trade deals, this or that. the bitter sheetter she leaeas this now, the better she'll potentially be against donond trump who will go after her on the same issues. sanders won in michigan, he can n in ohio. there are northern tier states he can do well in. let's switch to the republicans. donald trump had a big night. marco rubio had a bad day with a couple of third and fourth place finishes. if florida wasn't on the calendar next tuesday, is there race? >> the performance was so bad for rubio. maybe under normal circumstances, a candidate in that situation might think my home state? this is the problem for rubio and why it w w a big win for trump last night. early voting is already underway in florida. tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of votes already in the bks in florida. if marco rubio were to say, i'm
7:12 am
let the party unite around ted cruz, even if it united from this point forward around cruz, wouldn't be enough to stop trump in florida. in florida, winner take all. you get 99 delegates if you win. donald trump is in a good spot right now. >> how is the effort, the anti-trump effort to take away florida, take away ohio, how is that looking this morning? >> he has a better shot at ohio than florida. john kasich is a sitting governor. you get theense that florida republicans aren't comfortable rallying around rubio. but the ohio republicans are comfortabl to rally around kasich, but it's still not looking good. second in michigan. no extra bump. of course, what we described with rubio. neither kasich nor rubio got momentum out of last night going into their home stateses it's trump with the momentum. >> do we look at polling
7:13 am
there seemed to be bumps in the road? >> we are underampling, i think, and all pollsters are doing it, under sampling the trump -- >> i agree. >> i'll give a pass in michigan. first democratic state in 24 years. >> he said he's pulling in non-traditional voters. >> we're not correctly polling the trump pollsters. the weekend shooting of an idaho pastor the day after he led a prayer at a ted cruz rally. the suspect taken into custody more than 2,000 miles away from the shootinin at the white house. pete williams has the late. >> the secret service says this man was arrested after throwing non-hazardous materials over the white house fence. then officers discovered he was wanted in idaho. police say the man has written
