pivotal point in the gop race looms large today. hoping to increase his delegate lead in the republican primary, donald trump is pulling out all the stops. he brought wife melania on the trail to help ease his image with women who may be put off with last week's headlines. >> no matter who you are, a man or a woman, he treats everyone equal. >> 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, if we don't, 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 instead of these two guys.
>> but trump still trails ted cruz heading into today's vote and while the state may not or break one movement, hallie jackson has more. >> 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 that donald screams and yells a lot, but he has no solutions. >> reporter: it's a dramatic reversal from only a month ago when this looked like trump country. blue collar, more moderate and open primary. but since then, ted cruz has surged more than 20 points fueled by the stop trump movement making milwaukee ground zero led by conservative talk radio hosts like charlie psyches. >> this is not a conservative candidate, but a clown car. >> reporter: but a win here

hillary's insurmountable delegate lead. sanders' message is resonating with throngs of voters on the heels of winning five states, sanders is gaining momentum. the race increasingly combative. >> he's already under a lot of pressure. so don't tell her this. but i think we win here, we win in new york state we're on our way to the white house. >> reporter: the reality, clinton is ahead by double digits on her home turf of new york. but sanders is slowly narrowing the gap. campaigning here as the state passed a minimum wage increase. clinton took a veiled swipe at sanders again painting his policies as unrealistic. >> feelings have to be matched with 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 sanders initially failed to aggressively challenge clinton. sanders aides telling nbc news the article isn't a sign they're
throwing in the towel. >> we think there's a path to the nomination. >> reporter: now, start winning big, really big. >> our thanks to hallie jackson and kristen welker. and with proportional allocation on the democratic side, sanders will need a wide margin to begin catching up with hillary clinton. be sure to tune in to msnbc tonight. wisconsin coverage begins at 5:00 p.m. eastern with chuck todd. full team coverage at 8:00 right here on msnbc. all right. so late last night, did you see it? the ncaa's men's finals was one for the ages as david slew goliath in a back and forth final that provided one of the best finishes in history. >> he had the hot hands from the three in the first half. they have to do something from the outside now. it's paige off balance. puts it up! >> look at that. north carolina's marcus paige hits an incredible double clutch
