11:01 pm
i can't do it anymore. >> the need nfor speed without gas. we will take you behind the wheel of one of the world's fastest electric car races. >> a shack-up in the race for president tonight. ted cruz and bernie sanders are the projected winners in wisconsin. they each handley defeated the front runners giving big boosts to their campaigns. we start with david shuster in the latest results. it is possibly a game changing win borrow cruz it is because the margins tonight were a lot wider than a lot of people had expected. here are the latest total totals on republican side in wisconsin. as you can see, ted cruz getting 50% to donald trump's 32 trump
11:02 pm
thought he could keep it within 5 or six points. it's a landslide. you have 18 that are awarded right off of the bad. more based upon congressionalstruction. right now, it looks like donald's trump will get 3 out of the 42. the overall message here is that if you look at the big number, the tell gas, donald trump, there is no stopping ted cruz even because of tonight. basically no way ted cruz is going to be able to close this margin regarding the delegates needed for the nomination. what it does mean is that for donald trump to get to 1237 before the convention, that becomes much more difficult the odds of a contested convention go way up with donald's trump use losing wisconsin tonight. a lot of states favor him, including new jersey, new york, pennsylvania but donald trump is going to have to run the table if he has any chance now of getting the 1237 he needs before
11:03 pm
the convention. if you falls short, the possibility of multiple which ted cruz can line up up rubio. >> walks away.
11:04 pm
what it does is it means he starts to eat into hillary clinton's pledge delegate lead. here is what the spread is so f far. hillary clint on went into the night with about a 260 pledge delegate lead. it is shrinking. it will shrink as results come in tonight. there are caucuses in wyomings. sanders is expected to do well. can bernie sanders pull an upset in the state of new york? it is mathmatically possible for him to close lead perhaps by the end of the calendar before the convention. if he does that, if bernie sanders is able to get more pledge delegates by the ends of the nomination is the expectation the super delegates would then shift because they do not want to deny the nomination to whoever gets the most elected or pledge delegates of the
11:05 pm
that's where bernie sanders is taking a step in that direction. tonight, still at the very big uphill climb to get there. it means, antonio, his viability. >> stretching out his lead as the night has come on. it has become a bigger victory. making things uneasy david. >> chief political correspondent michael schor. a lot of happy people who said this is a turning point in the race. >> that's right. it was recallus here earlier when ted cruz came out, scott walker, the governor of the state introurts him. the krudz family came out acruz it was a big victory for the never trump movement. that's i think why ted cruz was very, very happy tonight. he did as you said call this a turning point. >> it is a rallying cry. it is a call from the hard
11:06 pm
working men and women of wisconsin to the people of america. >> we have a choice, a real choice. >> you know going with david shuster's numbers and going with what happened here, it is almost impossible for ted cruz to win this outright. what he is trying to do is sort of play on that never trump idea with a hashtag that turned into a movement here in wisconsin backed by scott walker and some others. the lieutenants governor here so many people working to deny donald trump not necessary to elevate ted cruz. you one thing you have to look at is ted cruz goes into new york, pennsylvania, all of nooepingz, delaware, maryland. that's not where he is most comfortable. he did what he had to do in denying a good number of delegates donald trump keeping the convention hope alive. >> bernie sanders is playing up
11:07 pm
his momentum but as david shuster said, he has an uphill battle. >> he does. the battle is less and less uphill every time he wins a state, antonio, he does what he has to do. you cannot deny he did that here this is a primary state, of course. it's a very white state, very typical for the kind of states bernie sanders has won when they have been in primaries. he moves on to wyoming and a caucus, very happy tonight. not in wisconsin but very happy when he spoke to his supporters. >> with our victory tonight in wisconsin >> we have now won seven out of eight of the last caucuses. senate sanders nos that's what he has to do. it's almost a rock face he has to climb up and now it's to new
11:08 pm
york. ty moment, this is a big victory for bernie sanders. he will take that. >> a few problems because some questions about how he would break up the banks too big to fail. michael schor, thanks. >> a former advisor to george h.w. bush joins us. david haynes is teditorial editr to. ted cruz didn't win by a little bit. it's looking like he can beats trump at this points around 17 percentage points. is the tide turning as cruz claimed or could this be his high point because as michael shore just said, he is ahead in the bigger states. >> i agree with michael's
11:09 pm
observation. i think that some of the upc upcoming states strongly favored donald trump so it's going to be uphill for ted cruz after this. it work hard enough for him to win enough delegates to go into the convention and say i am the party's nominee. there is no real math equation that shows him being in a position to do that. donald trump is the only one and now his path is a little more steep than it was before today's primary. but a lot of it was with the help of people who want to stop donald trump. it wasn't all for ted cruz. a lot was to stop donald trump. >> you raised the issue of a possibility of a contested convention. >> could be a double-edged sword for republicans. >> no doubt if developmented
11:10 pm
trump feels he is not being failure treated by republican party, he could bolt and form -- run as an independent for the presidency and that, again, would not bode well for the republican party. so very, very difficult choices. it's still going to be hard for republicans even tcontrol roomig the rules f donald trump enters the convention with less than 1237 but somewhere close to 1237, it's going to be hard to deny him the nomination. some difficult choices with the republican party. >> david, earlier in the year, polls in wisconsin were showing trump ahead or at least some of them were showing him ahead. >> seemed to change. virtually all of them showed ted cruz was going to have a win tonight, not a big a win as he has had how much of a role do you think all of the issues with trump's comments and his campaign played?
11:11 pm
>> i can't when trump couldn't answer the question about abortion or he didn't even seem to know what his position was, that was indicative for wisconsin voters he hadn't thought about it. they like their candidates to treat them like adults. donald trump in some ways didn't do that. i think this is a big night for ted cruz fodoubt. i think it's a very difficult climb for cruz to get to the nomination donald trump does look stronger in the state coming up. one thing to look at is ted cruz did very well with blue color republicans and white collar republicans in wisconsin. if he does that in the upcoming states, those states might be more of a toss up than we thought exit popes have shown so far have tended to go donald trump. one-of the exit polls in wisconsin that i thought was striking was that 4 in 10 of
11:12 pm
kraj voters felt that they would be afraid of donald trurp having the presidency. do you think that's representative of republicans around the country? >> i think it might be. i thought it was also striking one of out of three voters in exit polls or something to that effect said that they wouldn't vote for ted cruz or donald trump if they were given the nomination. >> i'm sorry. go ahead, david? >> i was going to say, i think what it says is that that split in the party is still there and there are deep woods that have to be healed. >> what i wanted to ask you about was that exit poll that showed that a third of the voters would not vote for trump in the general election. a third of the voters would not for ted cruz. talking about republicans what does that mean for the republican party? >> well, it will just means there is a lot of uphill
11:13 pm
sledding going forward. if trump is the nominee, he has to walk back some things he said earlier that were hurtful to so many l to so many different groups >> david, about the democrats, sanders, big win tonight. he is expected to win handley in wyoming and then we've got two
11:14 pm
weeks, you know, before -- two weeks from today before we get to new york. how much momentum do you think this will give sanders? >> i think it gives sanders some momentum. he did well here because this is a state that has a lot of progressive traditions and that's still en grained in the democratic party. he did great with young people as he always does. he did good with men. he did great with liberals but as pointed out by david shuster, he has an uphill climb here delegates are awarded in the democratic party proportionately. ebb with a blowout win, he is behind. it's possible he could close that gap if he continues to win. you can't count him out. ses he has been feisty and a real fighter. democratic voters here in wisconsin seem to line that. >> david hangs, joe watkins, very good to have your insights. alabama's governor may soon pass
