doing to keep ohio's governor from taking the nomination at a contested convention. plus, the latest poll positions ahead of tomorrow's battle for wisconsin. and will they meet face to face before the new york primary or not? hillary clinton and bernie sanders continue to spar over debate dates. >> look, she has proposed three dates. we have proposed four dates. she has a difficult schedule. i've got a difficult schedule. >> all right he's proposed sunday evening, april 17th. are you in? >> i'm not negotiating, chuck. that's not -- you know we've proposed thursday the 14th, which gives people more time to digest what happens in the debates. is he in? >> and delays on amtrak this morning after a deadly crash near philadelphia killed two people and left dozens of passengers injured. it's 5:30 on the east coast, 2:30 out west, and this is "way too early."
good morning. it's monday, april 4th. i'm jonathan capehart. we're just one day away from the votes being counted in wisconsin. the latest polls show ted cruz with the advantage ahead of donald trump in the cbs/yougov poll 43% to 37% just above the margin of error. john kasich comes in at 18%. and in the loras college poll cruz leads by seven points 38% to trump's 31%. kasich back at 18%. wisconsin could be a pivotal state for the cruz campaign. which is trying to argue he can expand in to new geographic and demographic areas. but trump wasn't giving up any ground, holding rallies throughout the state this weekend. this while cruz barnstormed alongside top surrogates, former candidates carly fiorina governor scott walker, and u.s.
senator mike lee of utah, a change from his past campaign surrogates like glenn beck and duck dynasty tar phil robertson. >> we've got rick perry and lindsey graham, and jeb bush, and carly fiorina. and wisconsin's own governor scott walker. now you throw in to that mix senator mike lee and mark levin, and you've got the entirety of the ideological spectrum of the republican party. that's what we're seeing is we're seeing unity. >> after a difficult week handling questions an abortion and nuclear arms, donald trump continued to open up this weekend, despite a top ally's advice to lay low and be patient for the news cycle to pass, as nbc's katy tur has learned. trump kept up with interviews,
one with maureen dowd of "the new york times," where he admitted that tweeting an unflattering photo of heidi cruz was, quote, a mistake. and revealed to bob woodward and robert costa of "the washington times" that the u.s. is headed for a, quote, very massive recession. and trump gave three nationally televised interviews that aired yesterday, including one with cbs that led to another clarification on his abortion stance. >> the laws are set now on abortion. and that's the way they're going to remain until they're changed. >> because you had said you wanted -- you told bloomberg in january that you believed abortion should be banned at some point in pregnancy. where would you -- >> well first of all i would have liked to have seen you know this be a state's right. i would have preferred state's rights. i think it would have been better if it were up to the states. right now the laws are set and that's the way the laws are. >> do you have a feeling how they should change? there are a lot of laws you want to change. everything from libel to torture. anything you want to change?
>> at this moment the laws are set and i think we have to leave it that way. >> trump's campaign issued a statement after the interview that said, quote mr. trump gave an accurate account of the law as it is today and made clear it must stay that way -- that way now, until he is president. then he will change the law through his judicial appointments, and allow the states to protect the unborn. there is nothing new or different here. and i should point out that, yes, robert costa and bob woodward are not with "the washington times" but with the great "washington post." this as new report from msnbc's ari melber finds that both the trump and cruz campaigns are seeking to block john kasich from being on the ballot at the republican national convention for failing to win in multiple states, signaling that the top two candidates anticipate a floor fight. wisconsin is the big prize tomorrow, but even more delegates are at stake later this month when new york and pennsylvania have their say. and donald trump is positioned to do well with a 31-point lead in his home state of new york.
the cbs/yougov poll finding trump at 52% and ted cruz and john kasich at 21% and 20% each. while in pennsylvania's april 26th primary, trump is up by 18 points, 47% to cruz's 29%. kasich at 22%. last night trump talked about the polls, and said he doesn't think his opponents will even contest the empire state. >> these are people that have known me for many, many years. okay? so this isn't like, you know, you go to a state where they really don't know you very well and you have to sort of convince them who you are. i mean, boy do they know me in new york. and they're tough. and they're smart. and they know trump. and it's something nice when they know you in new york. they know you in new york. and you have the kind of numbers that you have, which are through the roof. nobody's seen numbers like that. >> now to the democratic side. the cbs/yougov poll shows hillary clinton and bernie sanders neck and neck in wisconsin ahead of tomorrow's
primary. senator sanders is out front by two points 49% to 47%. that lead is within the margin of error. and that comes as a new loras college poll out of wisconsin shows secretary clinton ahead by six points 47% to 41%. and in new york the cbs/yougov poll has clinton with a 10-point lead over sanders. that state votes on april 19th. meanwhile in their latest back and forth over debates, it now appears clinton and sanders have agreed to debate before the new york primary. but on separate days and on separate networks. the sanders campaign said yesterday that the senator has accepted an invitation from nbc news for a sunday night prime-time debate on april 10th. we hope the clinton campaign also accepts. less than an hour later, abc news posted this article saying clinton has agreed to an april 15th debate on "good morning america" citing this exchange with george stephanopoulos. >> you and bernie sanders going to debate in new york?
>> i'm hoping to. you know we offered dates which they refused. you offered "gma" offered a debate during "gma" on friday, the 15th. i'll be there. i think it's a great opportunity to reach an audience that may not always be able, because of other obligations, to tune in to debates. i understand there's a debate in the works for the night of the 14th. i will be there. so, i want to debate. >> here's the problem with april 14th. it's one of the three dates the sanders campaign already rejected over the weekend pointing to a park permit for a major rally in new york city. the april 15th "good morning america" debate and a debate tonight are the other options the clinton campaign said over the weekend that it proposed, but the sanders campaign ruled out. here's the senator explaining why. >> doing it during the ncaa finals or whatever makes no sense. doing it in the morning, when people are going to -- not going to be watching it in large
numbers, makes no sense. >> do you think she proposed tomorrow night because it was competing with the ncaa finals that she was trying to avoid a lot of viewers? >> well -- well, i think, you know, who knows. but you know if you look at some of those democratic debates that we've had in the past many observers have noted that they're often scheduled on days when the voter turnout -- the viewer turnout would not be particularly high. let's get it on a network where people are going to be watching it at a time when people are going to be watching it. i think we can work that out. >> then there's this. hillary clinton took what's being viewed as -- by many as a thinly veiled swipe at sanders over his credentials as a true democrat while campaigning in wisconsin over the weekend. here's what clinton said followed by sanders' response. >> i do want you to understand, i am a progressive who likes to get things done. and that's what i've tried to do my whole life. and i'm also a democrat.
and have been a proud democrat all my adult life. and i think that's kind of important if we're selecting somebody to be the democratic nominee of the democratic party. >> well my response is i think the secretary's getting very nervous. that poll after poll shows us doing much better against trump than she is. so what we are saying is, i believe i am the strongest candidate to take on the republicans. and the fact that i have been the longest-serving independent in the history of the united states makes my candidacy even stronger. you got a lot of independents out there. so i think we can get virtually all of the democratic vote. i think we can get a lot of independent vote. i think we've got a lot of young people's vote. working-class people's vote. i think we're on the way to a victory if we can win the democratic nomination. >> after the "los angeles times" reported last week that federal prosecutors investigating clinton's private e-mail server
had begun the process of setting up formal interviews with some of her closest aides, clinton said yesterday on "meet the press" that she herself has not been contacted by the fbi. >> has the fbi reached out to you yet for an interview? >> no. no, they haven't. but, you know, back in august we made clear that i'm happy to answer any questions that anybody might have. and i stand by that. >> are you concerned that this isn't going to wrap up before the convention? >> no i'm not. because i don't think anything inappropriate was done. and so i -- i have to let them decide how to resolve their security inquiry. but i'm not at all worried about it. >> this comes after the state department said on friday it would suspend its own internal review of whether clinton mishandled classified information on her home server. a spokesperson said the decision was made at the request of the fbi, and that the department would reassess next steps after the fbi's work is complete.
also in the headlines this morning, two people were killed and at least 35 others were injured after an amtrak train struck a piece of construction equipment near philadelphia yesterday. according to amtrak, the train was traveling from new york to savannah georgia with 341 passengers and 7 crew on board when it collided with a back hoe. during a news conference, new york senator chuck schumer said the two people killed were the back hoe operator and a supervisor. both amtrak employees. it wasn't immediately clear why the back hoe was on the tracks. >> suddenly there was this crunching sound and hard thuds. i mean, you -- if you -- to being in a car it would be like the worst pothole. just more depending on where they were sitting. >> fire officials say none of the passengers on board suffered life threatening injuries. amtrak says train service will be restored today with some
possible delays between philadelphia and wilmington. turning overseas now to greece, which has begun deporting migrants and refugees on boats bound for turkey. the operation started at dawn with 131 migrants boarding two passenger boats on the greek island of lesbos. those boats arrived in turkey early this morning. the move comes as part of a new deal reached by the european union to reduce the number of displaced people flowing in to europe. under the deal, turkey will take in migrants and refugees who have entered greece illegally. in return, turkey will receive more financial aid, and visa-free travel in the eu for its citizens. now, to business and the massive leak being referred to as the panama papers. it's a massive data dump from a panamanian law firm and according to a german newspaper working with the international consortium of investigative journalists, it allegedly shows where the rich and powerful have been hiding their wealth. cnbc's louisa bojesen joins us
live from london. louisa, anyone we know implicated? >> well, a number of global leaders, past and present, are mentioned in what's being called the largest data leak in history, including for example the russian leader president putin. so you're looking at a large number of people that are being implicated in this. it's important to say, though, that we know that rich people have always been moving their money around. and the law firm themselves say they specialize in setting up offshore companies in tax havens. they put out a statement saying in part they had operated beyond reproach for some 40 years. they've never been accused or charged with criminal wrongdoing. but you are looking at a number of names. the russian prime minister implicated in the leaks saying approximately $2 billion have been shuffled through banks, through offshore companies, as well linked to friends, and associates of president putin. you've got the atlantic prime minister urged to resign now.
he's been implicated as well, he had millions of dollars of investments in icelandic banks. he says he hasn't done anything wrong and he didn't financially benefit, it's himself and his wife. you have the australian tax office also probing over 800 clients, as well, and the list goes on. now again, it's important to note that we only now that money has been moved around and it's not illegal to move money around if you do it within the system. it's also very much a case of that it seems that there's a difference between what's legal and sensitive, because of the way that we see things politically, versus what's illegal. and as of now the company is saying we haven't done anything illegal. but nevertheless it's still being called the largest data breach in history. back to you. >> lies is abojesen live from london. thank you. up next we'll set the stage for opening day in the major leagues, and the last day of march madness. plus, a spring snowstorm moves east. the national weather service issues a winter storm warning covering more than 2 million people. bill karins has the forecast next on "way too early."
i'm chris bosh. when i was sidelined with blood clots in my lung it was serious. fortunately, my doctor had a game plan. treatment with xarelto®. hey guys! hey, finally, somebody i can look up to... ...besides arnie. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin there's limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know i tried warfarin but the blood testing and dietary restrictions... don't get me started on that. i didn't have to. we started on xarelto®. nice pass. safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling.
if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto® watch for back pain or any nerve or musc related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto® tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto® is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto®... ...was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. with booking.com's free cancellation, you could just forget the beach wedding... and the beach booty... you could just book a different resort. like in alaska. they've got igloos. hey, need fast heartburn relief? try cool mint zantac. it releases a cooling sensation in your mouth and throat. zantac works in as little as 30 minutes. nexium can take 24 hours. try cool mint zantac. no pill relieves heartburn faster.
time for your favorite part and mine the sports. and we begin with the controversy surrounding one of u.s. soccer's biggest stars. abby wambach has issued an apology after being booked for driving under the influence of intoxicants early sunday morning in portland. according to police, wambach was pulled over for not stopping at a red light and was arrested after failing a field sobriety test. in her apology posted on facebook, wambach explains she was traveling after dinner at a friend's house but took full responsibility for her actions, vowing never to repeat her mistake. in college hoops after a pair of lopsided final four match-ups on saturday second ranked villanova will tip off against top seed north carolina the national championship game tonight. meanwhile, the women's final four played out last night. the top ranked uconn women now just one win away from a fourth
consecutive national title, after an 80-51 rout over 2 seed oregon state. they'll take on syracuse, which fared better than their men's team, advancing to the title game after an 89-59 win over washington. uconn and syracuse will meet in the women's national championship game tomorrow night. turning now to major league baseball's opening day, where in kansas city, the royals raised their world series championship banner before taking on the new york mets, the team they defeated in last year's fall classic. and the royals continued to be the mets' kryptonite. k.c. outduelled new york on the mound, tossing six scoreless frames before letting the bull pen take it the rest of the way. the mets came close after rallying for three runs in the eighth inning. but the royals would hang on for a 4-3 victory as they begin their chase for another world series ring. world series ring.
i almost made it through bill. >> almost. >> almost made it through. almost made it through. let's get a check on the weather now with nbc meteorologist bill karins. >> good morning you to jonathan. that cold weather is going to be a problem today. not just because of the snow but you're mentioning the baseball game. the yankee stadium today they're going to have the opener. it's going to be a chilly opening day. won't be snowing thankfully but it will be chilly. the snow is now moving through areas of the hudson valley. we've got a coating on the roads out there. now some of the roads are getting covered. secondary roads in connecticut and also massachusetts. this is where the worst of it is. we're pretty much done with a lot of the snow around buffalo and rochester. new york city area southward. too warm. even if you do see snow falling it will melt instantly when it hits the warm ground. here's how much additional snow we're going to see. notice the highlighted areas hartford to providence to boston, two to four inches in general. that will go throughout much of the day today. southern half of connecticut, little to nothing. poughkeepsie southward little to nothing, too. here's the timing of it. as we go through the morning commute the heaviest snows are
going to be in massachusetts, northern half of connecticut and the hudson valley. as we go throughout the noon hour we shift this a little bit. notice the enhancement, the darker blue. this is moderate snow. even during the middle of the day it's hard to accumulate as you get the higher sun angle. even a little bit of the heat gets through the clouds. secondary roads especially. we notice the rain creeping up to about hartford. this evening by 5:00 p.m. moderate snow left over from the northern portions of the cape up to boston. ending throughout the mass pike. so the ride home should be a little easier in areas of central new england than what we're dealing with this morning. by 10:00 p.m. we're completely done. the rest of the country, still chilly. this cold air mass that's going to be in the great lakes and the northeast is going to be with us through much of this week. pretty rare for april. southern half of the country looks great. no problems there. as we go through tomorrow at least all the travel will be better in new england jonathan. d.c. goes from 70 today to 50 tomorrow. so no complaints for you. but northern new england, it's going to be a rough beginning to april. i mean it may be another five to six days before we see temperatures in the 50s again. >> oh, man, bill karins, thanks
very much. >> we'll get there. >> we'll get there. still ahead donald trump, unable to make an event in wisconsin this weekend sent sarah palin instead. and we'll show you that worked out. next on "way too early." there are two billion people who don't have access to basic banking but that is changing. at temenos, with the microsoft cloud, we can enable a banker to travel to the most remote locations with nothing but a phone and a tablet. everywhere where there's a phone, you have a bank. now a person is able to start a business, and employ somebody for the first time. the microsoft cloud helped us to bring banking to ten million people in just two years. it's transforming our world. ♪ ♪ ♪
headlines this morning. the singer is claiming that she denied a settlement that would have released her from her contract with heavyweight producer dr. luke. she posted a selfie to instagram yesterday with a caption exchanging i got offered my freedom if i were to lie. i would have to apologize publicly and say that i never got raped. i will not take back the truth. i would rather let the truth ruin my career than to lie for a monster ever again. this comes just weeks after a new york supreme court judge denied the singer's request to be released from her contract from the producer. she has since filed an appeal. now let's go to politics now. donald trump supporter sarah palin was back on the campaign trail this weekend she spoke in walk at the republican party fish fry and served up what one boston globe columnist called a quote hot dish of malarkey. take a look. >> see illegal immigrants welcoming them in even inducing and seducing them with gift baskets, come on over the border and we'll give a gift basket of teddy bears and soccer balls. our kids and our grand kids

that's why the orcas in our care will be the last generation at seaworld. there will be no more breeding. we're also phasing out orca theatrical shows. they'll continue to receive the highest standard of care available anywhere. and guests can come to see them simply being their majestic selves. inspiring the next generation of people to love them as you do. my bladder leakage made me feel like i couldn't be the father that i wanted to be. now i use depend. i can move the way i really want. unlike the bargain brand new depend fit-flex underwear is now more flexible to move with you. reconnect with the life you've been missing. get a free sample at depend.com. this just got interesting. why pause
