5. whopping 64% of the vote in rhode island, and 61% in delaware. trump picked up 109 more delegates, a as he edges closer to securing the nomination. >> i consider myself the presumptive nominee. absolutely. senator cruz and governor kasich should really get out of the race. they have no path to victory. they have no path to victory. get out of the race. as far as i'm concerned, these two guys cannot win. >> this afternoon in washington, trump will deliver his first policy speech, complete with a teleprompter and professionally written speech, things the donald has avoided. it will be on foreign policy, including jobs. last night, took a shot at hillary clinton, specifically about her gender.
>> well, i think the only card she has is the woman's card. she has nothing else going. frankly, if hillary clinton were a man, i don't think she could bet 5% of the vote. the only thing she has got going is the woman's card. and the beautiful thing is, women don't like her. okay. >> well, the latest nbc wall street journ poll, unfavorable women 70%. 33% said they would support trump, 56% said they would back clinton. hillary clinton took delaware -- sanders won in rhode island. clinton picked up 193 delegates, only 240 away from reaching the magic number needed for the nomination. the associated press even calculated that clinton is on track to win the nomination, even if she loses all the remaining primary states.

cruz/john kasich coalition that was going on. >> collusion he calls it. >> collusion. they thought he would taken yan that. it's not liking like the whole thing. how will it play out now? >> it's strange. kind of irrational idea. you're going to convince moderate john kasich voter in indiana, to vote for ted cruz. it is a hail mary pass and they may need some our fathers too. >> polling shows trump now even though that he is winning, he does have a problem with female voters. how is this going to show up? i mean how will this play out in the long run? >> it's going to be tough. you noticed last night in his comments, he was talking about how hillary is -- has nothing but being a woman, women don't like her. you look at the statistics on trump's female support, very, very low. toughest group for him to get so far. hard to see how he will pull them in.
>> what about his comments, saying if hillary was a man, she wouldn't get 5% of the vote. >> you know what, i mean, go look at your own ratings, donald. gotta tell you, huge gender gap as we sit here now. >> tough hill to climb. >> it is. >> we also know hillary clinton talked about uniting the democratic party. >> yes. >> do you think she'll be able to pull it off if she gets the nomination? >> you know what they mean, they want the owe pennant to get out of the race. that's where she is. bernie will not leave, but really what she is hoping for is that his tone will ease, he won't attack her so personally. he'll focus on things on what will be in the platform when the democrats get together at the convention. the issues that bernie wants to promote. focus on that, and quit beating up on me so much. >> you bring up a point. if bernie sanders won't leave the race, do you think maybe he will take the independent stance and run against her in the election? >> you mean as a third party candidate.
>> sure. >> i would say highly unlikely. donald thinks that would be a marvelous, he cares about those issues. >> he does. he has done a tremendous job getting it across. look at the people when has had following him. >> nobody thought he would be any where near where he is today. >> nor did we think trump where he is today, but. >> yeah, that's true. that's why this is funny. >> ellis, always a pleasure to have you. thank you so much. new details on the ohio massacre as investigator looking for suspects and possible motive. victims show signs of a struggle before they were kielled. all eight victims, all part of the roaden family died from gunshot victims. one was shot nine times. two had five bullet wounds.
