most major airlines have rapid response teams to help you solve your problem. gloria riviera, abc news, wa ugh. >> i just like to drive with the kids. >> yes, that's long and painful enough. >> that is pretty painful. you know too well. you know about long and painful. look at you in your cute little outfit there. >> because i enjoy any sort of strip search. >> sorry, you're going to need exx-ray examination over here. coming up in our next half hour, signal jam. mass transit rider who said enough is enough, blocking his fellow passengers 'cell phone service. the criminal act that is earning him folk hero status. >> first, why even donald trump is worried about the week ahead in an all-important mad grab for delegates. how it all breaks down.
what a busy weekend it was in politics as the remaining candidates tried to nail down more delegates in their respective primaries. >> yeah, and with time running out, the path to the white house is less clear for some and even donald trump faces some challenges in the week ahead. here's abc's george stephanopoulos and this week roundtable with your voice, your vote. >> coming into this tuesday, five big states coming up. we've got some charts here that shows what happens, what he'll need to do if he wins both florida and ohio. but the that up first. if he wins both, he has to win 54% of the delegates left. but look at the difference if he splits, if he wins florida but loses ohio, he has to win 60% of the delegates left with the map
kasich wins in ohio, very good chance donald trump cannot get the dels he needs. >> i think the victory in ohio is a must win and holding trump's margins down to beating him is important i would be pretty confident would not be the republican nominee if ohio and florida, there's a pretty good chance to stop trump. donald trump's a menace to the country, he's been horrible in a million different ways but 45% of the delegates are selected. let's proclaim it over. i object to that. if he's a serious menace, people need to fight him to the end. >> the math works different on the republican side which are winner take all kicking in march 15th. by the end of this month, 60, 65% on the republican side, 50% on the democratic side, by the time we get to the 426 or the yankee primary, pennsylvania, et
so the math will not help rubio or cruise or mr. kasich. >> if they beat him, look at arizona is winner take all. it's not inevitable, donald trump has an average of 35% of the votes so far. it's not inevitable that he wins winner take all au arizona or wisconsin. it can be made less likely by serious republicans. where is the speaker of the house from in wisconsin paul ryan will he tell the voters of wisconsin you should not vote for donald trump. >> that's a good question. >> i think most of the located officials against donald trump wound up losing. most end up losing in their states in the course of this. 1237 is a number donald trump probably has a hard type getting to. let's get the scenario. donald trump gets 1100 dels. >> very reasonable. >> and he is 300 or 400 dels ahead of the second place person which is very reasonable in the course of this and he's won 2 states. what do you do at a convention
is you go to the lead were now you're going to say to millions of voters and these people are very angry, it's complicate it more. assume everything you just said is true but the violence we've seen this weekend continues through july and cleveland. >> i think it's going to continue. i think you're going to see violence at democratic events. what's going to come out of this, not because of democrats but because of trump supporters you showed up at ours. we're going to show up at yours. >> the violence could be something that will spread in other parts. >> there was thinking once you have the first round, if they don't get enough, you have a second ballot. when that takes place, whoever you cast your vote for, you don't have to do it again and cast for the same person. it has been half a superintendent since we've had something like this happen. >> the sad part about all this is it's not going to be over until this summer. this wild crazy campaign is going to continue straight through then.
