winning shot. the first championship since 1995. and the reaction on campus is this. [ applause ] students celebrating at the pavilion into the wee hours of the morning. and villanova head coach summed it up. >> i couldn't be prouder and happier to see them enjoy this and fulfill their dreams. that's what are it is all about as a coach. to see their eyes and satisfaction, there's no better feeling as a coach or a parent. f
>> the villanova wild cats will return to philadelphia with a hero's welcome and likely a parade. and hoping to increase his delegate lead, donald trump is pulling out all the stops. his support among woman is down, so he brought wife milania on the trail. >> no matter who you are, a man or a woman, he treats everyone equal. [ applause ] >> and he had a rallying cry for his badger state supporters, asking them to end it. >> if we do well here, folks, it's over. if we don't -- [ applause ] -- if we don't win here, it's not over but wouldn't you like to take the credit in wisconsin for ending it?
give wisconsin the credit for ending it. and then we can focus on hillary clinton instead of these two guys. >> but trump still trails ted cruz heading into today's vote. and while the state may not make or break any candidate, the stop trump movement is hoping for a big win. >> reporter: closing in fast, the wisconsin finish line, the last push through a state that matters more than anyone thought it would. not just for its 42 delegates, but for the momentum it could give the stop-trump movement. >> they realize he screams and yells a lot, but has no solution. >> reporter: this looked like trump country, blue collar, more moderate, an open primary, but since then, cruz has surged more
than 20 points, making milwaukee ground zero, led by a group of conservative talk radio hosts. >> this is a clown car and the rhetoric that works elsewhere does not work in a state like wisconsin. >> reporter: but a win here teflon, after his roughest week yet. >> what i said is we're going to go into a massive recession and i say if i'm president, that's not going to happen. >> reporter: plus a revealing new profile that shows he wear as bullet proof vest. he says he can start acting presidential whenever he wants. so far, it's the same trump thereon trail. and that's fine with linda hanson, who says she's sticking with him no matter what. >> you're never ever change me. i'm totally for him. >> reporter: nbc news, milwaukee. >> reporter: here traveling with the clinton campaign. it's a question of math versus momentum. anything short of a blowout
wouldn't do much to dent hillary clinton's nearly insurmountable delegate lead. sanders touting his slim lead in wisconsin where his message is resonating. he is gaining momentum, the race increasingly combative. >> don't tell her this. but i think all we win here, we win in new york state, we're on our way to white house. >> reporter: the reality, clinton is ahead by double digits on her home turf of new york and sanders is narrowing the gap. and clinton again painting his policies as unrealistic. >> feelings have to be match would politics. >> reporter: another reality check, his campaign is
acknowledging to the new york times early missteps which are now creating a drag on the campaign saying he failed to initially challenge clinton. now the only way he can make a play for there top spot, start winning big, really big. >> and thank you for those reports. and with proportional alindications on the democratic side, sanders will need a large margin to catch up to clinton. and coverage begins at 5:00 with chuck todd. now to the so-called panama papers believed to be the biggest data leak in history. they're exposing how some of the most powerful people may be hiding billions off shore. government lawyers are reviewing the documents for any potential
