"early today" starts right now. i'm betty nguyen. the donald goes 5 for 5 while hillary clinton hits 4 out of 5. trump swept last night's contests by huge margins and got a whopping 46 64 of the vote in rhode island. he edges closer to securing the nomination. >> i consider myself presumptive nominee, absolutely. look. senator cruz and governor kasich should really get out of the race. they have no path to the nomination.
as far as i'm concerned, it's over. these two guys cannot win. >> this afternoon, in washington, trump will deliver his first policy speech, things the donald has avoided with a professional written speech. last night, trump also took a shot at hillary clinton, specifically about her gender. >> i think the only card she has is the woman's card. she's got nothing else going. and, frankly, if hillary clinton were a man, i don't think she would get 5% of the vote. the only thing she's got going is the woman's card and the beautiful thing is women don't like her, okay? >> well, the latest nbc news/"wall street journal" shows trump unfavorability rating among women at nearly 70%. a hypothetical head-to-head matchup against clinton, 33% of women would support trump while 56% say they would back clinton.
states on tuesday taking delaware, pennsylvania, connecticut, m.d. bernie sanders pulled out a victory in rhode island but clinton won more delegation and only 242 away from reaching the magic number for the nomination. she is on track to win the nomination even if she loses all of the remaining primary states. >> with your help, we are going to come back to philadelphia for the democratic national convention. with the most votes and the most pledged delegates. let's go forward. let's win the nomination and in july, let's return as a unified party. >> after the results came in, the sanders campaign issued a statement containing no reference to a path forward to the nomination.
stay in the race. political analysts and best selling author ellis henikin is here to break this all down. according to donald trump, a huge night. is the race his now? >> yes. i would go even one step further than presumptive, his word. i would say all but certain. he got it. >> we have to talk about the whole pact with cruz and kasich and cruz focused on indiana. here is what is oed, dd, okay? he won't say a must win but in indiana 66,000 votes have been cast already in the primary. >> that's right. >> is that a big miscalculation by the cruz campaign to not know that? >> it's nonsense cal. how does kasich go to a moderate voter in indiana, one of his supporters saying you should all of a sudden vote for cruz. it's an impossible argument to make.
>> is there any argument to make right now? does it matter at this point? >> it's done, betty, it's done. the guy won. listen. there is mathematics and political reality and we are in the world of political reality here. >> we are back to reality now, folks. the polls do show that donald trump has a bit of a problem with female voters. we talked about that. yet, last night, ed that if hillary were a man, she would only get 5% of the vote and women do not like her. are those words really going to back-fire on him? >> yes. i'm glad you put the figures up on the screen. yes. reality he has a huge, your word again, huge, problem with women. >> it's huge! >> no, seriously. it's always a mistake. we have learned this year to underestimate donald's potential as a political candidate but i got to tell you. you look at any of those facts, any of the polling, any of the focus groups, very hard to see
with large numbers. >> we are hearing that hillary clinton's campaign is fund-raising off of those comments this morning. is she going to make a ton of money off of that? >> yes. if it means a fair pay and decent working conditions. >> you can write that press release now, right? >> it's a natural. >> she spent a lot of her victory speech laying out, you know, the path to unite the party. are the bernie sanders voters, are they going to get behind her? >> they are not there yet. listen. it has been a rough couple of months, right? it wasn't as vicious as the republican side but i mean a lot of tough things being said. over the weeks to come and maybe months to come, a lot of repairing. you notice hillary keeps remembering how gracious she was with barack obama. she would like a little gracious graciousness now, i think. >> thank you, ellis. new details on the gruesome ohio massacre as investigators continue in their hunt for
a coroner's report reveal the victims showed signs of a struggle before they were killed. the pike county medical examiner's office says the eight victims of the rhoden family were shot and one shot nine times and two had five bullet wounds and only one victim was shot once and some had bruising indicating they fought back against their kill or er or killers. more than 24 million people are at risk for severe weather today. residents in wichita, kansas, saw scattered lightning and hail and heavy rain. military planes at nearby mcconnell air force base were evacuated for caution. at kansas city's airport, hail came down and rain came down in sheets near st. louis causing flooding. more than 25,000 customers lost power in that region. to oklahoma, a powerful storm uprooted trees and tore the roofs off of homes.
steady stream of lightning and an apparent tornado that knocked over an 18-wheeler. let's get straight to meteorologist bill karins with a look at all that is going on. >> a mess but we avoided a strong tornado. that was great news. yesterday, we still had the severe weather outbreak but only five reports of tornadoes. most of those were weak. look at the yellow dots and the blue dots on here. 263 reports of large hail and 155 reports of wind damage and wind gusts. the storm is still potent this morning. thunderstorms have weakened a little bit and watch boxes are trimmed here. the worst of it down in texas where the strongest storms are existing. these will try to roll through on san antonio and toward houston throughout the early morning hours. eventual into areas of louisiana. as far as tornado threat goes, that is really, really small at this point. let's get it to today. this line that we just watched will slowly dissipate and then regenerate a new line of storms.
risk of severe weather goes from missouri and southern iowa back down along the mississippi river to houston and almost into the new orleans area. 24 million people are at risk of severe storms and we will see about half an hour to hour as these storms go through your area. large hail and damaging wind and isolated tornadoes. that's great. other areas could get maybe small storms right around washington, d.c. that is your national weather. now here is a closer look at your day ahead. for today, those storms are rolling through east texas this morning and push into louisiana, mississippi. then new line of storms should regenerate over arkansas and missouri throughout the afternoon. a cold side to this storm too. casper, yesterday, over 6 inches of snow. hopefully, once again today we get the hail and the wind but not the tornadoes. >> let's keep those out of the system. thank you. find out what one boss just did to make 2,000 of his employees very wealthy. a new study that every dog owner needs to hear. that's next.
