national championship in the last four years. >> we will pay our respects to that team in a little while and have much more on the game. almost as exciting, the wisconsin primary. are the presidential front runners losing their grips? ted cruz had a commanding lead, complicating trump's path to the nomination. bernie sanders made history with another big win over hillary clinton. we'll start our coverage with peter alexander. >> good morning. nice to see you both in person today. donald trump and hillary clinton, the front runners having a bad night, will have to marinate in the losses until the primary in new york, april 19th. how does trump respond to the biggest adversity he's faced all campaign? >> god bless the great state of wisconsin. >> reporter: ted cruz savoring a sweeping victory over donald trump, insisting wisconsin has
reset the republican race. >> tonight is a turning point. it is a rallying cry. it is a call from the hard working men and women of wisconsin to the people of america. we have a choice. >> reporter: cruz embracing his wife, a recent trump target. >> heidi! >> reporter: the texas senator delivering a powerful message for the anti-trump movement. >> either before cleveland or at the convention in cleveland, together, we will win a majority of the delegates and together, we will beat hillary clinton in november. >> reporter: trump's stinging defeat after a rocky last week, demonstrating vulnerabilities for the front runner. the billionaire in manhattan, watching results with his family, blasted cruz as a trojan horse. recent adversity is revealing cracks in the campaign. nbc news learned of growing frustration and in-fighting
within trump's camp. multiple sources in the campaign and close to the candidate questioning how trump is being advised. warning he's too insulated by a handful of aides. corey lewandowski denying the reporting, calling it wholly inaccurate. trump pushing back hours earlier. >> i had not heard anything about the inner fightings of the campaign. we have a very successful campaign going, and i think we're going to keep it going. >> reporter: for the democrats, bernie sanders notching his sixth win in seven states. >> do not tell secretary clinton. she's getting a little nervous. i don't want her to get more nervous. but i believe we've got an excellent chance to win new york and a lot of delegates in that state. >> already facing an uphill battle, sanders is fending off criticism right here in new york.
here is the cover of new york's "daily news." attacking his opposition to a proposal that would permit victims of gun violence to sue manufacturers. sanders is calling the words inaccurate. >> quiet before new york. >> exactly. chuck todd is political director and moderator of "meet the press." he's at the board to break this down for us. >> morning. >> after wisconsin, on the democratic side, where do we stand? >> clinton has a significant lead. bernie sanders netted all of ten delegates, total. here's the magic number. she needs 33% of remaining delegates to get there. how does she get there? here are the remaining states. 33% of these plus super delegates. she'll be favored in the northeastern states. they've been tough for sanders. he's only been winning caucuses
and primaries in the midwest. let's go to the republican side. this is where it's interesting. here's what you need to know as far as the numbers. donald trump's percentage of the remaining to get to 1,237, he needs to win 58% of all remaining delegates. high bar, not impossible. the path forward is tricky. these are not winner take all states. if he gets 50% or more, he could win all 95 of the new york delegates. that would be a big deal. unlikely he pulls that off. that's why wisconsin is meaningful. basically, he's not going to win all these in california. he's going to lose some of these states here. we know that ted cruz does well in this part of the country. if you look now, i think we're at a pretty -- 70% chance of a contested convention. >> nicolle wallace joins us.
peter alexander turned into andrea mitchell. >> that's good television. i'll give you the headline and you fill in the blank. wisconsin just did what to the race? >> made it much more likely there's going to be a contests convention on the republican side. on the democratic side, you are going to have a bruising fight over her trustworthiness. sanders is going to keep coming at her. >> wisconsin just delivered donald trump an epic blow, the first one he's really had to absorb since launching his campaign in june. >> when we talked about this yesterday, the big question was, okay, what would he do? how would he react? will he be grateful in defeat and pivot, the answer was? >> well, what did we say? >> you say people change, and chuck said they don't. >> last night, trump put out this statement. he dictates this stuff. he refers to ted cruz as lying ted cruz. accuses the party, essentially, of being in cahoots with everybody to take it away from
him. the only way he becomes the nominee is if he makes nice with party bosses. what does he do? insults them and insinuates they're trying to steal it from him. >> not to steal your thunder but if you're donald trump and you've gotten to this lead in the delegates, you think you got there by being donald trump. >> that is the internal divide in the small circle of people around him. when they go to him and say -- and there are people close to him that would like to see him be more presidential, like to see him do more things like the apex speech where he read from the teleprompter or stood in front of the flags. they'd like to see more of that donald. i think the people that enable the other behavior are the people that listen to donald who says, i got this far by being me. >> andrea, let's bring you in here. chuck just laid something out dramatic. even though bernie sanders wins wisconsin, he gets ten delegates. if you're in the clinton campaign this morning, how are you feeling coming out of wisconsin? >> you should not be feeling as
good as they probably are feeling. he is just hammering away at her trustworthiness. the exit polls, she has got a real problem going forward. she's going to be a bruised nominee. she has to figure out how to get rid of sanders, and now she can't. he has the money. he has the will. he has the belief in himself now. he is not going to let up. this is becoming a this is becoming a really nasty campaign. it is a battle for new york. if she wins big in new york, maybe he re-thinks it. he now believes that he can persuade the super delegates and even the pledged delegates that she is so damaged, she should not be the front runner. >> was this a big night for ted cruz or the stop trump forces? i see northeastern states that wouldn't typically be cruz country. >> i think this was big for the stop trump forces. lindsey graham is probably the best perspective. a tweet says, congratulations, ted cruz. we've done it. we'll be able to deny donald trump a majority at the
convention. it wasn't, congratulations, ted cruz. you're on your way to becoming the next president of the united states. i think you'll see that in the next few days. stop trump, never trump people will come out of the closet. others have been quiet about it. that's what this wisconsin loss for trump could mean. >> what surprised me, a number in the exit polling, 32% of people in wisconsin consider themselves very angry at washington. those numbers have to be higher for donald trump to win. >> they have to be higher for bernie and for donald trump. what's interesting about last night, and lindsey graham is a great vessel because he lets it all hang out, he sat with us and said that it is more important to maintain the principles and the dignity and honor of the conservative movement with someone like ted cruz, who he acknowledged may lose in november, than to roll the dice with someone like donald trump when matters of national security are too big a deal. >> you didn't do the bumper sticker. >> i shared this rumor, lose with cruz is becoming a punch line at the end of these conversations.
>> better to lose with cruz. >> yeah. >> we'll wrap it up on that note. >> wow. we're going to break out the rhyming dictionary for the next one. thank you so much. late night and early morning. >> free style. another story a lot of people are talking about. the bitter cold refusing to loosen its grip on a large chunk of the country. al has a first look at the forecast. >> we're going to stay bold with the cold. how about that? we've got frost and freeze warnings for 51 million people out there. guess what? this cold weather is going to last into early next week. let's show you what we're talking about. we've got frigid air in new england. plain cold air in the mid-atlantic states. possible records in boston, providence, washington, rochester, new york. wind chills in the mid to upper 20s to 30s. that's currently. throughout the day, mild highs out west. here in the east, great lakes, jet stream is down to the south. we've got this clipper and a frontal system that'll push through.
temperatures today, anywhere from 10 to 15 degrees below average. then you look at thursday. front moves through. still chilly through the midwest. temperatures moderate a bit along the eastern coast. then we've got a high pressure system that'll start building in from the great lakes. temperatures on friday into saturday will stay anywhere from 10 to 30 degrees below average. that reinforcing cold air makes its way into the mid-atlantic states. the northeast, we do not see any warmup until mid next week. >> thank you very much. >> oh, boy. >> it's a crowd that became a mob. >> we can understand. they're freezing out there. al, thank you so much. battle lines are being drawn in the south over a new law in mississippi that allows certain businesses to deny services to same-sex couples. this on the heels of a controversial law in north carolina that limits bathroom options for transgender people. nbc's janet shamlian has the latest.
>> reaction has been quick and vocal here in mississippi. that's on both sides. this morning, there is concern and fear over a backlash that companies may end up pulling their business out of the state. >> reporter: with the stroke of his pen, the governor of mississippi setting in motion a giant controversy that's reverberating across the country this morning. opponents say the new law legalizes discrimination. the governor says it protects religious freedom. >> if a baker or photographer says, my deeply held religious views is i cannot participate in a religious ceremony like a wedding, the state cannot fine you. it cannot discriminate against someone because of their religious views. >> reporter: wisconsin government employees can refuse to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, but must find someone else in the office to do it.
the aclu called it a sad day for the state of mississippi. supporters say it's fair. >> there is a constitutional right to the freedom of religion and same-sex marriage. this bill strikes the balance. >> reporter: former nsync singer lance bass posted, entering mississippi, turn your clocks back 200 years. north carolina laws limit the rights of transgender people. a company decided to relocate its jobs elsewhere. >> i anticipate paypal will still provide their services and accept our consumer money in the state of north carolina. that's my response to that. >> north carolina is getting hit by a long list, growing every day, of cities and states that are banning publicly funded travel there. this is turning into a state by
state fight. in mississippi, the law goes into effect in july. matt and savannah, back to you. >> thank you. another story making headlines in the south. pressure growing this morning for alabama's governor to resign in the midst of a highly publicized scandal. an alabama lawmaker filed an impeachment resolution against governor robert bentley on tuesday. bentley faces allegations of an extramarital affair with a top aide. the governor admitted making inappropriate remarks to rebecca mason, but denies the two had a physical affair. in a statement, bentley said there are no grounds for impeachment, and i will vigorously defend myself and my administration from this political attack. to san francisco, where city leaders approved a family leave law on tuesday. it requires companies with 20 or more employees to provide six weeks of fully paid leave for new mothers and fathers. advocates say the issue is gaining momentum across the country, like the debate over a higher minimum wage.
smaller businesses argue the action in san francisco is another expensive mandate that they cannot afford. there is a red flag warning up for most of oklahoma today. dry, windy conditions are causing a pair of raging wildfires to spread. one fire outside of oklahoma city is fueled by fast-burning cedar trees. at least one home has been destroyed. another fire near the kansas border is threatening the small down of freedom. 300 residents are being urged to evacuate. the history made last night by the uconn women's basketball team. the huskies capped off another perfect season by winning an unprecedented fourth consecutive national championship. tamron has more on that. good morning. stand and applaud. >> two days of excitement, back to back. the men's championship game, of course, ended with the buzzer beater. the women's was a blowout. uconn dominated from the start to secure their place, as savannah said, in the record
books. >> the national championship goes to connecticut for the fourth year in a row. >> reporter: in indianapolis, it wasn't close. the uconn women's basketball team crushing syracuse, 82-51, making history, winning the ncaa championship for the fourth year in a row. all season, the undefeated huskies have been steam rolling their opponents, ending with a perfect record of 38 wins and zero losses. stewart is once again the final four's most outstanding player. closing out her college career with four national championships, a host of awards and the ability to hit shot after shot after shot. for the huskies, it started early, exploding on to the court with a double digit lead in the first quarter. at halftime, it was 50-23. students in connecticut watched in awe, rushing toward the screen as the minutes count down. when it was over, coach geno secured his 11 and when it was all over, coach
geno auriemma secured his 11th national title. a journey that began two decades ago, culminating tuesday with a new dynasty in college sports. >> stewart was born in syracuse and grew up just north of the city. when she arrived at uconn, she said she wanted to win four titles. talk about a babe ruth calling it. she says, i'd like to win four titles. >> done and done. >> the gift that keeps on giving. you keep winning. all the great high school women's basketball players go, i want to go to uconn. >> imagine you're a high school women's player now. >> can we say hats off to syracuse, though, men and women. >> great season for men and women. >> exactly right. >> al? >> yes? >> nobody likes your forecast, my friend. >> i know. i just got out with my life out there. tore me limb for limb. let's show you what we've got out there right now. we do look for wet weather from the gulf coast all the way up into parts of the upper midwest, where we're going to see snow and icy mix. the western third of the country, spectacular today.

win in the wisconsin primary, topping donald trump by double digits. this is a victory that pushes republicans even closer to a contested convention. >> either before cleveland or at the convention in cleveland, together we will win a majority of the delegates and together we will beat hillary clinton in november. >> the trump campaign released a statement following his defeat claiming cruz is being used by republican party leaders in an attempt to, quote, steal the nomination from him. >> bernie sanders won on the democratic side, adding to his string of wins over hillary clinton. he still trails in the delegate count. peter alexander is back with a look at what we learned in wisconsin, in particular, some of the exit polls. >> yes. one of the most interesting things we saw from last night is the following -- is demonstrated what republicans have long said needed to happen to beat donald trump. donald trump got 35% last night. that earned him a big loss, of
course. for months with the field spread out, the 35% was good enough to win him six separate states. consolidating against him paid off. let's break it down. there is clear divisions within the republican party if ted cruz is the nominee this fall. two-thirds of wisconsin republicans say they would vote for him but almost a third said they would vote for clinton, hillary clinton, for a third party candidate or they would stay home all together. that number gets even bigger if trump is the nominee. 35% of republicans say they would not vote for trump. so much for turning the badger state blue to red this fall. for the democrats, bernie sanders may have -- his win may have said as much about clinton's weaknesses as it did about his own strengths. look at the number at the top. 82% of democratic primary voters listed honesty as a top -- excuse me. of the people that listed honesty, 82% voted for sanders.
same deal among young voters, a key demographic that clinton will have to energize to win this fall. >> thank you very much. let's get a check of the weather now from al. >> announcer: today's weather is brought to you by liberty mutual insurance. see car insurance in a whole new light. >> we've got a frontal system that's going to be bringing a myriad of weather to our u.s. area. we're looking at snow from duluth, marquette, into saginaw. heavier thunderstorms from chicago all the way down to atlanta by the afternoon. back behind it, much colder air. so, we're looking for snow around the great lakes. that rain and snow -- that rain and thunderstorm activity moves offshore tomorrow. some of this rain could be heavy in the northeast, causing some airport delays. up into the u.p. of michigan into wisconsin, we're looking at some areas picking up to 12 inches of snow.
generally along the eastern seaboard, heavier rain all focused right up here into new england. flood threat f a good wednesday morning to you. meteorologist anthony slaughter. if you haven't heard it will be a scorcher of a day. temperatures well above average. 89 foran mateo, even in san francisco today, in the mid-80s for ocean beach and embarcadero. napa 92, mill valley, 91 and concord, 91 and low 90s for the tri-valley. oakland, hot today up to 88 degrees. >> that's your latest weather. savannah? >> that's your latest weather. savannah? >> al, thank you. there is a new twist this morning tied to the convention of former prep school student owen labrie. here's gabe gutierrez. >> reporter: this morning, owen labrie is asking for a new trial after the case that rocked one of the country's most elite prep schools.
labrie was acquitted last year in new hampshire of felony rape charges involving an underage classmate. >> guilty or not guilty? >> guilty. >> reporter: but he was found guilty of misdemeanor sexual assault, as well as a second charge of computer-related seduction. in a motion just filed, his lawyers essentially claim his trial defense team dropped the ball by only focusing on the sexual assault charges, not the computer-related charge. >> and not only is that a very serious charge, but it carries with it the sentence of him being registered as a sex offender. >> reporter: among other things, the motion also claims the defense did not request appropriate jury instructions. >> it's extremely unlikely that this argument is going to get owen labrie anywhere. ineffective assistance of counsel claims are common and very rarely granted by the court. >> reporter: nbc news reached out to labrie's trial attorneys for comment but didn't immediately hear back. the 20-year-old's case drew
national headlines when it revealed an alleged ritual, at st. paul's school known as the senior salute, when seniors ask out freshmen, sometimes for sex. in february while labrie was out on bail, a reporter tweeted about his visit to a girlfriend in harvard. he missed his curfew but argued he was visiting with lawyers or chose classes. >> so he chose wrongly, your honor, admittedly, to try to fly under the radar. >> reporter: a judge sent him to jail. now, his attorney says he should get another chance. for "today", gabe gutierrez, nbc news. just ahead, the monster alligator just tracked down in florida. the story behind the photo going viral. and the real deal on coin machines. >> good morning. i'm jeff rossen. coming up, you save up all your coins. maybe your kids have a piggy bank. now it's time to cash in.

sometimes the right thing is done. there were surprises along the way. i forgot how heavy change can be. my kids love finding change. put it into their bank. this is our family coin jar, weighing me down. if you're anything like me, you have no idea how much money is in here. you take the coins to your local grocery store or bank and put it into the coin counter, you assume they're accurate, giving you back exactly what you put in. wait until you see what we found. this morning, one of the country's largest banks is taking action. >> reporter: you've been saving. now it's time to cash in. these coin counting machines make it easy. dump the money in and out pops your total. we can trust them, right? to find out, we went to the bank, getting hundreds of dollars in coins, from quarters to dimes to nickels and, you know, even the pesky pennies. as you can see, my team and i
are counting every single roll. we know exactly how much we have. we unroll all the coins, carefully separating them into bags of $300. first up, these popular coinstar machines, found in stores across the country. right away, good news. they come up accurate. right down to the penny. next, we haul, and i do mean haul, our loose change to one of the country's largest banks, td bank. testing their penny arcade at five different branchs. we pour all our money in. >> that's it. nothing else. >> reporter: but we don't get all our money back. none of them are accurate. >> that's $300. >> reporter: this is off by 5 cent cents. this is off even more. >> 70 cents doesn't sound like a lot. customer after customer, that's
a lot of money. >> reporter: things are about to get worse. we lose nearly $4. things don't add up at this location. my producer pouring in exactly $300 in change. remember, we counted all the rolls ahead of time. the machine tells her she only has $256.90, off by more than $43. >> hi. my name is jeff rossen from nbc news. >> reporter: i go back the following week to alert the manager. >> we came in here to test the accuracy of your coin machines. we brought in $300. >> okay. >> the machine gave us an inaccurate count. it gave us more than $43 less than what w brought in. i wanted to give you a heads up, the machine isn't accurate. >> i'll look into the concern, absolutely. >> reporter: we also contacted td bank corporate. we are disappointed with the experience that the "today" show had with the coin counting machines.

foods. we need to shift back and say, is the whole food itself good for us? if so, let's consume it in that form. >> one of the studies said it lowered your risk of diabetes. the other said it helped with obesity if you drink full fat. >> the circulation study didn't just trust what you said but looked at the blood in your body and looked for the milk fats. people with whole fat had a lesser chance for diabetes. how is it possible? we're trying to do the right thing but the wrong thing is happening. maybe milk fat has a protective effect, for example, by waking the liver or muscles up to consume sugars effectively. maybe it changes the bacteria in our gut. we know the recommendation is to drink skim milk or fat free, but probably not a wise thing if you want to reduce diabetes. >> all in moderation? >> to drink milk is a personal decision. if you're going to eat a food, you're better off with whole
food. did you tell us you were eating whole fat milk or no? the researchers looked over long periods of time, what happened to the chances of you becoming obese. you're drinking or eating low-fat dairy to lose weight. >> we have yogurt. i look for the low fat you gugu >> there is a lesser chance of becoming obese if you consume whole fat dairy. >> if you had a choice, wasn't about the calories, you'd always consume whole fat because it tastes better. >> of course. >> it makes you feel fuller so you don't search for other sources of calories. that takes us to this table, the big issue. if you go to the gaucrocery sto. you have low fat versions of everything. you have the cheese, milk. which do you buy for your home? >> i'd always go for the low fat, except for maybe the chocolate milk.
i probably wouldn't have pick thad. >> that's different. my household, i spent a lot of time researching this, america should be buying whole fat versions. the whole food is designed to be consumed that way. now we have no benefit of avoiding it. kids who should benefit from our knowledge, they won't drink the skim milk so we give them chocolate milk. what's left? sugar. sugar water in the form of chocolate milk. it's a mistake. >> a lot of schools serve that, don't they? >> they can't give them whole fat milk which the kids might consume. >> i know you have more of this on your show. thank you so much. you can catch the dr. oz show. check your local listings. matt? savannah, thank you. katie lee is here. she'll share an easy recipe for lasagn go moing.

the nastiness in the presidential race. dr. deborah, family physician and mother of four, has timely advi advice. dr. g., good morning. >> morning. >> i like talking to my kids about the relevant of politics, and i've found myself is staying away from the conversation because of what's been going on. >> it's a great opportunity. i don't know about in your house, but when i talk to my kids about behavior i don't admire, it's their behavior or their friends, which makes me angry and them defensive. this is a chance to talk to them about issues, behaviors, things important to us as a family. >> what age group are we talking about? we're not talking, again, about the nuts and bolts of politics. we're talking about the basics. what age should we start? >> preschool. >> preschoolers love the idea of picking and choice. i hope you'll take your preschoolers to the polls with you. >> what about the campaigns themselves? if they're in the room when coverage of campaign events -- >> and it's hard to avoid.
>> -- come on and it's hard to avoid, they hear the names used by the candidates, do we stop them in their tracks and say, let me explain what you're hearing? >> it's a great idea. kids like co-viewing with us and voicing their opinion. and say, for example, is that why you say insulting or lying is bad? it doesn't look good and now, i don't think that person would be great at their job. >> they'll say, mom and dad, you tell me not to use those exact words when i refer to my brother, sister or friends on the playground. how do these people get away with it? >> it's great to point out that bad behavior doesn't end on the playground or in the bedroom with your sibling. to say, now you tell me, what does that make you think about that person? do you admire that? >> there's one other step we should take. i don't want to go too far. but if your children are in the room watching the political news with you, they have seen actual violence at events. a guy gets punched, something
like that. where do you go about starting that discussion? >> i would ask my kids, and have asked my kids, if you were in that situation, how would you handle it? >> what would a 5, 6, 7-year-old say? >> usually, they'll give you back your own rules. oh, you shouldn't use your hands. an older kid, my 11 or 14-year-old, is likely to say, i think you can't go tell a teacher this case. do you have to push back? what do you do? >> without endorsing any candidate here, i do think parents can use john kasich's line. which is, i'm not going to take the low road to the highest office in the land. as a parent, i have used that and it works. >> i agree. listen, i think it is the silver lining of seeing things we don't like on the campaign trail. it's a great conversation starter at home. >> often times my kids come home when they're younger and say, i'm for x or y candidate. they have no idea why. >> i'm dressing up as them at
school. >> no idea why. should you bring out of them facts and reasoning behind their proclamations? >> i think every time we ask our kids to think about why they're making a choice, any choice, we make them stronger citizens. it's a great chance, especially if we know they can't vote. we don't have to get too worried about what their choice is now. we can have a meaningful conversation. >> all is not lost. >> it's not lost. >> good opportunity. >> it'll be okay. >> thank you very much. >> thanks for having me. >> more on our website, today.com. up next, are you an elite sleeper? is the secret to a good schmono in your dna? what al uncovered at a sleep lap. first, this is "today" on nbc.
