let's listen in. >> that's what this next election is all about. in 1980, milton and rose freedom wrote "free to choose." they explained the american free enterprise system has been the greatest engine for opportunity and prosperity that the world has ever seen. too much government can stifle opportunity. but if we get washington out of the way, then there is no limit to what we can accomplish [applause.] wits what allowed my dad to escape cuba and start a business and today to be a pastor traveling the country [applause.]
ba big night for him t a big margin. he said this is a turning point in the campaign. he said there is now hope again for the future david shuster is in the result center with whom came out on top bernie sanders won the democratic primary. let's start with republicans. cruz is hoping to make the climb deeper for donald trump to get the delegates before the competition. before winning the state ofwing, et getting 18 del investigators, won two districts. he is getting at least 24 delegates. we think possible donald trump may end up with 3, maybe 6,
maybe 2 of the congressional districts but what this number does. let's look at the entire public result in terms of delegates. what it means is for donald trump to get from 736 to the 1237 he needs to get the nominationefore the convention, that is much more difficult than it was going in to tonight. again, with ted cruz getting the 24, plus perhaps another -- maybe another 12 delegates tonight, it makes it very, very difficult for donald truck to get to the number. what does that mean if he gets less than 1237? then you start talking about a contested convention. in other words, the idea that on a first ballot, donald trump would not have the delegates and then the rules change on a second and third ballot. that's where somebody like ted cruz would ban together with marco rubio and john kasich's del gants and be declared the nominee. it makes the republican convention that much more interesting, and that infuriating if you are a donald trump supporter and you fear this may take away from you.
there is every indication that donald trump, there is simply no way ted cruz can close this number before the convention but again, it means donald trump will be denied perhaps the majority he needs in order to lock in the nomination in cleveland. now, we mention did the democrats. a big win for bernie sanders on the democratic side. bernie sanders will pick up the lion's share of the delegates, 44 so far. hillary clinton will also pick up some. >> that's because the state of wisconsin with all of its 86 delegates it's awarded proportionally so based upon the wat the results will come in, but what this does for bernie sanders on the democratic side, gives him momentum heading in to new york and he will further close the gap. he was behind by about 260 in the pledge delegates tonight that was win owed down to about 240. and it means he still has a viable path to closing that
further if he can get big victories in new york, in pennsylvania, and in california, the final democratic primary state. so again, bernie sanders has now won 7 of the last 8 democratic contests. it gives him some psychological momentum, exposes perhaps some weaknesses in hillary clinton's candidacy and makes it more difficult for her to get to the imagine number she needs to get to the nomination before the convention. so good nights for the challengers. bernie sanders in the democratic race and ted cruz among the republicans. >> it really is beginning to look like he could stop her. >> he could. he's got to win again, 57, 43, 56, 44, in places like new york and pennsylvania. >> tough? >> but again, a lot of people would have suggested that kind of split we are seeing in wisconsin tonight would have been impossible just three weeks ago when bernie sanders was down like 20 points.
he closed a 20 point deficit in three weeks will probably end up weishar winning by 5 to 7. >> augurs some optimism. people say what about wyoming? there is a wyoming caucus he will win 80 to 20. that's two weeks to wait until new york with all of this momentum for sanders. it will be interesting. thanks, david. we are going to head back to cruz headquarters. the candidate has finished speaking. chief political respondent, a big night for ted cruz, michael. >> antonio, indeed, it is a big night for ted cruz. right now, he's getting all of the delegates for winning the state, all 18 as david shuster said still waiting to hear about the congressional district. it sometimes donald trump is doing well may one or two of those. ted cruz called it a turning point for campaign.
i am joined now by contacts written frazier, the national press secretary for cruz for president. this is everything you wanted it to be. isn't it? >> a great night. as the senator said, it is a turning point but a campaign. wisconsin is a unique state. it's different than any other state that voted. not the evangelical state a lot of these others have been. what this shows is that senator cruz is bringing republicans from behind the spectrum from behind his candidacy. his message resonates with working class americans, with women, with minorities and different coalitions we are going to be working hard to share our message with and bring on board moving forward. >> let's talk about where we go from here. this campaign does not get easier for this campaign or any of the others connecticut, pennsylvania, rhode island, delaware. >> i think what wisconsin shows
is we are well positioned to campaign in states that might not be as traditionally conservative as senator cruz is but i think what we are seeing is that republicans see ted cruz as a candidate who they can get behind. the values that we care about are the same. we want jobs. we want freedom and we want security that's what senator cruz is going to be talking about. creating economic growth, protecting our homeland and if any of the constitution are all we can get behind. we believe that will be a boon it to our campaign. >> heidi cruz, inadvertently became a big part of this campaign in the past few years years. how much do you think what donald trump said and the rhetoric had to do with tonight for your candida pain? >> she has been found fundraising, doing her ownents. she has been a defendant power, a vip surrogate as i call her.
she can hold her on. her story resonates with americans. when americans, especially other women see her story and the things she has accomplished and done, they see ted cruz as a woman that's going to defend the things they care about whether it's having opportunities to pursue any career they want or being be a good mom and run a solid household. heidi is someone that is going to bring people together she has been working hard. >> she was a story line. thanks so much on your big night. antonio, that is what it is right now, a big night here we are going to still watch to see how donald trump does in some of these congressional districts, see how the delegates, you know, split happens. it's going to be interesting as well. antonio? >> we will check in with you again off the next hour and a
half. thank you. david hangs is the editorial editor from the milwaukee sentinel. it was very good to see you on what i am sure is a busy night for you. normally, by the time wisconsin rolls around, the primary rolls around, it's usually not crucial. this year, an exception as catherine frazier said, do you think it's a turning point in the rates? >> no doubt it was a good night for ted cruz. i will be interested to see what the final margins are. i think if it's 10 points or more, then that is a big deal. if it's 5 or 6 roads t might just be a bump in the road for donald trump. wisconsin was always going to be a harder state for donald trump for other states in the upper midwest because the demographics here while at first glance, they appear to favor him, if you look a little deeper, we are a little more religious, aittle better
behind ted cruz and having the people, governor walker and the leaders in the legislature behind ted cruz as well certainly helped moist of the republicans are in the state. i think there is a pretty big deal. >> exit polls showed all sorts of interesting things to do. one of the ones that struck me the most was that in wisconsin, only 11% thought that trump was the candidate who shared that i values. this is among republicans voters. do you think that would have been the case had trump not had these couple of holler weeks with one misstep after another? i think the number of unforced records in the last couple of weeks, no doubt about it. ted cruz, i think, did very well in that metric, by the way. one thing to look for going
forward is trump did not do well with people who were doing better -- who were better off with white collar republicans. if that is coming up, new york, some of the eastern states, that could be a problem for trump going forward. >> wisconsin would have seemed to be taylor made for kasich. he certainly didn't catch on, about i want to get the democratic side in to wisconsin university populations but he had a narrow win. so what do you think if sanders can't win bigger in wisconsin, does he really have a chance of stopping the clinton train? >> i think it's hard for him going forward. we have a long progressive tradition around the era of teddy roosevelt and he did great in the university towns as he
does everywhere, but hillary clinton did well enough. he has a massive deficit to make up. it's harder because of the way we award delegates in the democratic party proportionally. >> david haynes, good to have you with us. the senator is speaking in wyoming right now. let's head there and see what he has to say. >> i was told that there were about 5,000 people who participated in the last wyoming caucus. it looks like all of them are here tonight.
well, maybe two words. i don't know about about what momentum is all about. momentum is this campaign 11 months ago, media determining that we were a fringe candidacy. momentum is starting campaign 70 points behind secretary clinton. momentum is within last couple of weeks, there have been national polls which have had us one point up or one point down [applause.] momentum is when you look at national polls, statewide polls,
we are defeating donald trump by very significant numbers in almost every instance, in national polls and in state polls, our margin over trump is wider than is secretary clinton's. with the victory in wisconsin -- and let me take this tump to thank the people ofwing for their strong support. with or victory in wisconsin we have won 7 out of 8 of the last
caucuses. we have won almost all of them with overwhelming landslide numbers. what momentum is about is that at a time in contemporary politics when every imagine candidate has a super-pac, we have said, no to super p.a.c.s, said no to the bill yon airs who fund those super pacs, and what we have done is in unprecedented man ner america history, we have at this point in the campaign received over 6 million
individual campaign contributions [applause.] anyone here know what is average contribution is? >> crowd cheers. >> smart crowd. $27. to paraphrase abraham lincoln at gettysbur g, this is a campaign by the people, of the people and for the people [applause.] we have decided that we do not represent the bill yon air class.
we do not respect wall street or the drug companies or the fossil fuel industry. and we do not want their money. what momentum is about is my belief that if we wake up the american people and working people and middle class people and senior citizens and young people begin to stand up, fight back and come out and vote in large numbers, there is nothing that we can not accomplish. and what we have been seeing
