and new poll numbers just released within the last couple
6:13 am
more politics. decision 2016 and new poll numbers just released. in the last couple of hours, shows support for donald trump is at 50% nationally. that marks a first. >> on the other side of the aisle, hillary clinton holding a ten-point lead over bernie sanders. new numbers as voter in five states are heading to the polls. tracie potts live in washington, d.c. >> it shows why these primaries today are just so important to the front runners, especially beginning to solidify their leads. the democrats for example, they've got 462 delegates at stake in these five states today. could be a big day for hillary clinton. hillary clinton celebrating spring. >> this makes us all feel like there will be a new beginning, doesn't it? >> in pennsylvania at the very spot where she hopes to accept
6:14 am
the democratic nomination this summer, polls predict a clean sweep in today's five east coast primaries, including pennsylvania. >> let us see in pennsylvania the highest voter turnout in the history of the states. >> bernie sanders faces more questions about how long his campaign may last. he rallies in west virginia today. donald trump has a double-digit lead in today's pennsylvania primary, and nationally. despite the two other republicans agreeing to split up their chances against him in three upcoming states. >> nothing more than an effort to target the resources because we are going to head to an open convention. >> two tremendously failed candidates last week, they are going to pick somebody like that? give me a break. not going to happen. >> ted cruz is going after kasich supporters in indiana. >> if you don't want to see donald trump as the nominee, if you don't want to see hillary clinton as the next president, i
6:15 am
ask you to join us. >> first maryland, delaware, rhode island, connecticut and pennsylvania today. that's 172 delegates for the republicans, but even if someone gets them all, it's not quite enough to get the nomination, which means california's all that more relevant. >> california in play and hugely important for the republican race. tracie potts, thank you so much. this is a big week for bay area republicans in general. all three presidential candidates are going to be in burlingame for the california republican party convention. front-runner donald trump will deliver the keynote address on friday. possibly setting the tone for the convention. john kasich will speak friday night. senator ted cruz will speak on saturday. with the republican nomination still very much up for grabs, california, as tracy was mentioning, is a critical state. security always a critical priority in any campaign event. when it comes to political apps,
6:16 am
people's personal information is at risk. symantec says more than half of the 1200 android apps related to the presidential primary are exposed to hackers, especially the ones for ted cruz and john kasich. this happens when you download apps from unsecured wi-fi connections. california voters last night got a chance to weigh all five candidates vying to replace u.s. senator barbara boxer. the debate aired here on the nbc bay area. two democrats and three republicans clashed. on the democrat side attorney general harris and orange county representative loretta sanchez laid out their policies. >> we are going to improve the economy, we have to look at what we need to do to increase minimum wage we need national commitment to affordable childcare. >> i said no to the iraq war. i said no to the so-called patriot act and no to the wall
6:17 am
street bailout. >> on the republican side, the three republican candidates addressed issues ranging from immigration to reforming drug laws. >> how unsuccessful they've been and what would be a much better approach to solving that problem which is vastly more significant in american crime than guns one way or the other. >> we spend over $2 trillion a year reacting and paying for regulations. we need to use sensors, drones and big data to take control of our border. >> all three gop candidates reside in the bay area one more debate scheduled ahead of the june primary. california's top two primary rules mean the top two finishers regardless of party will advance to the general election in november. that means two democrats or two republicans could be on that november ballot. back to presidential politics now. ted cruz can't win the nomination outright but his campaign still might be floating a trial balloon this morning
6:18 am
hinting at who he would pick as running mate if he were to win the nomination. >> cruz and carly fiorina have been talking. >> they are far in their politics. fiorina was quick to endorse cruz. fiorina the former ceo of hewlett-packard. her staffers tell our sister blog a cruz campaign is vetting fiorina for a vice presidential spot. she will speak saturday at the state gop convention along with cruz. presidential candidates don't normally name vice presidential running mates until after they themselves are nominated. but this is a very unusual campaign year. brand-new at 6:00 this morning, amazon will start delivering food like other services like door dash and uber eat. delivering in san francisco will be free for prime users. no mark-ups. whatever you pay at the restaurant, you will pay on
6:19 am
amazon. this means amazon is losing money on every single delivery, which the company can afford to do. it appears to be a way to convince people to become a prime user in the same way they offer free videos to prime users. this could be devastating to companies that cannot afford to lose money on every delivery. the ceo of door dash will respond later this week on my sunday morning show press here. >> the whole point of karma is what goes around comes around, right? in this case it's true even when karma is an electric car. you may remember the fisker karma back in 2011. the company went bankrupt. this morning we learned the company is going to reintroduce karma and build it in california and call it the rivero. there is obviously an appetite for expensive electric cars.
6:20 am
the chinese version will bring it back. >> they are trying to referred bad karma. >> all that witticism at 6:20. >> it was in the 80s in chicago yesterday. it was in the 60s in the bay area yesterday. what is wrong with this arrangement? >> blustery. >> we'll see that flip as we go into the weekend. we'll be in the 80s and they'll probably be in the 20s or something. we are going to have warmer weather moving in. let's take a live look out there. a lot more clear skies starting out the day. in san francisco we have mid to upper 40s. 50s in embarcadero. the peninsula at 48.
6:21 am
we'll reach into the upper 50s to low 60s today. scattered showers in the forecast tomorrow. we are watching this cluster of clouds just off to the west of us. as that moves in late tonight, the showers will follow during the morning commute. once it rolls off to the east, we'll have mild and breezy conditions for thursday into friday. a quick warm-up this weekend between saturday and sunday. we'll have highs reaching into the mid 80s. get ready for that. we've been talking about a warm-up. it comes this weekend. scattered showers tomorrow off and on through at least the morning and early afternoon. it tapers off by the evening. by thursday our temperatures already start to feel milder reaching into the low 70s for the peninsula.

6:32 am
of the thousands of people in san francisco who rent out their homes like airbnb, well under half are registered with the city which is required by law. to get more compliance, the city wants to put the screws on the short-term rental sites themselves. today san francisco's supervisors will introduce new legislation that would require sooi sites to verify that the property owners have registered with the city. they are making the companies responsible for ensuring its users comply with the law. if renters fail to register, it would be those sites that could face misdemeanor charges and fines of $1,000 a day for violation. >> overall, we are also not in favor of passing laws that deputize to become law enforcement agents of the city.
6:33 am
we believe that it's the government's job to enforce laws, not the jobs of private citizens. >> airbnb responded with a statement saying, the legal enforceability of the proposal is questionable, airbnb will work to simplify the process. bob redell, "today in the bay." >> it is 6:33 on your tuesday morning. a woman facing eviction may remain in her house. last week the judge tentatively ruled she may stay in her flat as long as she lives. today attorneys from both sides are expected to hammer out the final detail.
