>> winning ohio would be huge for the sanders campaign, just like winning michigan. provides enthusiasm for supporters and more importantly money for his campaign to continue. >> reporter: ohio is big for republicans, too. have a look at where john kasich and donald trump stand. the governor with a slim lead over the billionaire, and he's never lost a political contest like this in his home state. so that will be something to watch as well. coming up in our next half hour, here in florida. 6 news. >> julia, thank you so 34u67. wheel check in with you at 6:30. our decision 2016 team coverage continues on this tuesday michael spears. sweetwater. michael, even though the numbers really aren't showing it, marco rubio says he's pretty confident he'll keep his cpaign going after today. all of that is going to hinge on

having their eyes on florida. we know polls back out here live open at 7:00 a.m. we've seen poll workers getting ready. rubio tweeted out late overnight saying a lot is at stake, not only for america, but the republican patriotism he'll be attending his primary night celebrations at the florida internationanauniversity arena. michael spears, nbc 6 news. as the votes continue to come in and the final numbers later this evening, the nbc 6 news and weather app is your go-to guide for today's primary. we'll be up dating it minute by minute. you'll be able to track the live results anywhere any time. a womann is recovering this morning after a deadly crash in hollywood. we broughthtyou this as breaking news yesterday morning. it happened near the 1700 block of east young circle. police say the driver was speeding on hollywood boulevard when he lost control and crashed through the wall next to the
we understand 24-year-old david paul lemoore, he was the one killed in that crash. his passenger, roxana villa remains in critical condititn. if you're ready to go on a morning walk, police in one community want to warn you this morning. this comes of a terrifying attack. police say a woman was sexually battered and robbed on grenada boulevard and coral gables. we have nbc 6 reporter erika glover working on this story. she'll have an update coming up in the next half hour. an unfortunate end to this story we've been following for the next couple days t. search for the mission jet skier in miami has ce to a tragic end. divers pulled his body from the waters of blue lagoon. the46-year-old dad of three was missing since saturday night when he took off on a jet ski
since then his family has held out a lot of hope staking out that area near miami international airport until they got that bad news unforlunately. we're told he had a pacemaker. there is speculation among his family and investigators that he might ve suffered some kind of heart condition while he was on the water. a craftft crook makes his own entrance into a south florida gas station. this morning w w'll show you just exactly how he did it. nbc 6 tracking breaking news out of chicago this morning. that's where three officers were shot overnight. we're understanding it happened during some kind of a drug investigation. we don't have a lot of detail. e of the officers returned fire killing one of the suspects. the officers are being treated injuries. >> chances are some of you are putting ititn right now.
welcome back. it's being called separation tuesday. the front-runners looking to punch their ticket to the nomination. >> a big day here. both hillary clinton and donald trump are finding themselves in a fight today in their own worlds. "meet the press" moderator chuck todd joining us right now. let's get started with the republicans. in your opinion, do you think it's going to be the end of the road for marco rubio here in florida today? >> well, to a point. it doesn't look good. multiple polls now, three straight polls in the last three days all show double digit deficits for rubio. it's very possible with the early vote that maybe some of the polls haven't gotten the early vote split right. i happen to think they might have. but that's always possible. so you can't assume that the polls are 100% accurate there. rubio may not drop out even if
if trump does lose ohio, and even if he wins florida, he will still b i think short of the delegates he's going to need. he's going to not be able to win all the delegates n ncessary to have the majority before the convention. but if rubb gets out, his delegates go up for grabs. and thh trump can get him early. if he stays in as an active candidate, even if he doesn't campaign as much, he controls those delegates which is something that all of the stop trump forces may want him to do. so he may lose but not get out tomorrow. so keep an eye on that. >> certainly interesting perspective. let's talk about the democrats now, chuck. hillarar has a big lead here in florida. but when it comes to ohio, it's a lot closer. what do you foresee hapapning here? >> well, you look at the five states. on one hand hillary clinton i think will win the night on delegates probably no matter what happens, because she's going to win big enough in florida to net out a lot of delegates there and big enough
but ohio, illinois and missouri, it's very possible she could lose all three of those states, not just ohio. the symbolic aspect of that, losing a big swing state lili ohio one week after losing michigan would give sanders some extra momentum, particularly if he stort of wins the night on states. there's five states, if he wins a majority @f them, even if he's short on delegates, that gives momentum. after tonight he could win seven straight contests. suddenly the map gets a lot better for sanders than it does clinton. that's why she desperately wants to win io tonight. >> chuck todd live out of new york city. we know it's going to be a very big and long day for us. we appreciate you taking a couple minutes to talk with us this morning. be sure to watch the "today"
