5:33 pm
ways, that mexico takes in from the united states. >> reporter: but tonight, president obama mocking the trump plan. >> the notion that we're going to track every western union, you know, bit of money that's being sent to mexico, you know, good luck with that. >> reporter: trump's new plan comes as he tries to regain momentum after a rough patch. with him in wisconsin, wife melania, taking the mike for her first prepared speech. >> no matter who you are, a man or a woman, he treats everyone equal. >> reporter: mrs. trump trying to help her husband with female voters, after a series of mistakes, including his retweet of this unflattering image of ted cruz's wife. >> i say, stay away from, you know, stay away from retweets and -- >> reporter: tonight, trump will find out if his stumbles are helping senator ted cruz. >> i think the entire country is looking at the state of wisconsin.

5:35 pm
voters, if he wins wisconsin and then the new york primary next, he's going to win this nomination. but hillary clinton staying back in new york, running the clock, fighting for a win where she was once senator. and tonight, what wisconsin voters are already saying. 55% of democrats feel hillary clinton has a better chance to defeat donald trump, 42% say sanders does. but then, the vast majority say sanders is more honest, more trustworthy. abc's cecilia vega with the challenge clinton issued late today to donald trump, saying he should, quote, get out of one of his towers and walk the streets of new york. >> reporter: tonight, hillary clinton hundreds of miles from wisconsin, ignoring the fprimar there. her sights set on new york and donald trump. >> i wish he'd get out of one of his towers and actually walk the streets and spend time with the people of this city. because pedaling prejudice and paranoia is not the new york
5:36 pm
way. >> reporter: if clinton loses wisconsin, it would mean she's lost six of the last seven contests. but well ahead in delegates, she's focused on trashing trump, today, joining the women of "the view." >> i just don't understand what he thinks is the role of somebody running for president. i don't think it is to scapegoat people, divide people. >> reporter: but clinton's potential wisconsin defeat is a chance for bernie sanders to showcase his staying power. >> thank you, all. >> reporter: sanders hoping a win tonight will give him momentum heading into new york. but today, a potential stumbling block. in an interview today with "the new york daily news," the senator, who has made breaking up the big banks a central part of his campaign -- >> we are going to break them up. what we must do is break them up. i think it is time to break them up. >> reporter: -- struggled when asked exactly how he would do
5:37 pm
it. his answer vague, saying only that he would need, quote, legislation passed. and while sanders often talks about prosecuting executives involved in the financial crisis, he was unable to name which laws would apply. >> and cecilia vega live with us from brooklyn tonight. and hillary clinton all over upstate new york this week, syracuse, albany, then campaigning in new york city today. it seems pretty clear, cecilia, where she's focusing her energy. >> reporter: that's right, david. right here, new york, even her husband said today while campaigning in the state that this race psychologically is coming down to new york. but wisconsin, first and in a sign of what could come, her campaign does not have a victory party planned for tonight. >> all right, a view of manhattan there behind cecilia, coming to us from brooklyn, thank you. let's get right to jon karl. some very telling numbers coming in already that could effect donald trump tonight. how important, first of all, experience though these republican voters? >> reporter: well, this has been a campaign dominated by republican voters who want an outsider and don't care that much about experience, but take
5:38 pm
a look at wisconsin. 48% say they want an outsider, but almost as many, 46%, are saying political experience. that's not good for donald trump. >> and listen, jon, you and i every single night here talk about the idea of a contested convention, but voters weighing in on this notion of a possible fight brewing? >> reporter: yeah, and wisconsin voters don't like the idea of a contested convention. take a look at this. 55% are saying -- 56% saying that the person who has the most votes should win. only 42% saying, let the delegates decide at a contested convention. of course, that's the only way cruz wins. >> all right, jon karl will be with us all night long. jon, thank you. in the meantime, we're going to turn to the other headlines this evening. first, from tennessee, investigators on the scene tonight, talking to reporters just a short time ago, after a popular american tourist helicopter went down, killing everyone onboard. that is time lapse video from a tower camera. the black smoke going up there as the aircraft hits the ground. abc's gio benitez on the hunt for answers tonight. >> reporter: tonight, new details in that tragedy at the world famous great smoky mountains.

5:42 pm
her job. so, as passengers exited, both doors were open. >> i was shocked. i was surprised that that had happened and, you know, i had no clue. >> reporter: many passengers didn't realize it either, because someone was having a medical problem in the back of the plane. this is not the first time. remember that jetblue pilot who did something similar, saying he'd had it, grabbing a couple of beers and hitting the slide? he did a year of probation and paid restitution. still no word tonight while the flight attendant intentionally popped that chute. she, too, could face criminal charges. david? >> david kerley tonight. thanks. now, to alabama this evening, and the new move to impeach the governor. accused of an affair with an aide. she has already stepped down. abc's steve osunsami with the calls for impeachment and questions over disposable cell phones allegedly purchased by the governor. >> reporter: tonight, even some of the governor's long-time supporters are serious about throwing him out of office. >> it's time to put aside his selfishness and step down. >> reporter: the feeling is bipartisan.
