corporate democratic whores who are beholden to big -- >> although it seemed clear who he meant, he denies it was clinton, later apologizing for the remark on twitter, saying he meant members of congress. he is the husbandlisaling, a supporter of clinton. the comments were made before sanders arrived. today, hillary clinton still leads the vermont senator by double digits in new york. >> i need your help on tuesday. i need your help to go to the polls. >> with just five days to go, the two rivals are literally chasing after each other. >> this union and its workers are standing up for justice, and i stand with them today. >> on wednesday, sanders was on the picket line. then hours later, clinton showed up at another verizon

7:06 am
made progress in the polls, they seem to have stabilized around a ten-point lead for hillary clinton. when you're bernie sanders and you're trying to win this delegate war, you basically need to run the table from here on out. moral victories don't count anymore for bernie sanders. >> andrea, let me ask you about this trip for bernie sanders to the vatican. a lot of his supporters, even his allies, are scratching his head, saying how coyou up and leave in the middle of a primary? >> this is really personal. i know myself, i interviewed bernie sanders moments after pope francis finished his speech to congress. he was so caught up on it. he really relates to this, to pope francis' social values. so he is insisting on doing it, and they think that he'll be back on the campaign trail by saturday. so he won't have missed so much. >> and no guarantee, by the way, of meeting the pope yet. >> not at all. it's, in fact, not confirmed. they're still talking about it with people in the vatican. but n a
7:07 am

the two of us, and had a chance to clear the air. >> reporter: another raw us can night, this time in pittsburgh. protesters confronting trump supporters outside the arena. 500 pittsburgh police officers, nearly the entire force, onsite, some in riot gear. inside, trump pouring new fuel on his rivalry with the gop, calling the party's delegate selection process corrupt. >> because it's a rigged system, folks. the republican system is a rigged system. what it does is allows the bosses to pick whoever they want. >> reporter: rnc chairman reince priebus responding. >> i think when people are frustrated and upset, they say things they regret. the rules are not being changed in order to injure or benefit anybody. they are what they are. >> reporter: the back and forthcoming amid what some are calling an awkward moment at that pittsburgh rally, when trump invoked the late penn state football coach joe paterno. >> how's joe paterno? we going to
7:09 am
how about that whole deal? >> reporter: paterno died in 2012, shortly after retiring in the wake of a child sex abuse scandal that rocked penn state. a trump spokesperson later clarified trump was referring to a statue of paterno removed from outside the stadium amid the controversy four years ago. meanwhile wednesday night, cruz and his wife heidi found themselves on stage and upstaged by their daughters. >> they both have matching karaoke machines. it is a little frightening with the two of them singing taylor swift together. >> we don't sing together. >> that's true. >> it does not match. >> you do sometimes. >> well, i stop singing because she oversings. >> reporter: they're cute. as for his battle with the rnc overnight, trump fired back on twitter. the rules did change in colorado shortly after i entered the race in june because the pols and their bossesw

that trump's campaign manager will not be prosecuted for that incident with a reporters last month. politico first to report this, citing sources that a florida prosecutor will not pursue a case. we're told an announcement is expected later today. willie? >> busy day, peter. a lot of people asking, can we just nominate the cruz girls? at least to run for something. peterenin peter, thanks so much. more on the republican delegate battle. let's talk about this number. perhaps the most famous number in poll tickles. 1,237 delegates that have to be one. >> it probably sounds random. every state has a different number of delegates. it's based on the population of the state and how republican the state is. does it elect a lot of republicans? add them all together, divide it in half, and add one. that's a majority. 50% plus one. you come up with 1237. >> all right. simple majority is what we need. voters actually now are picking
7:11 am
convention to represent them. voters not directly voting for the candidates. so who are these delegates? >> again, this is a state-by-state thing. in some states, you do a winner take all. if you win the state, you get all the delegates. in some states, it's proportionally divided. in some states, people run with their names on the ballot next to the candidates to be delegates to the convention. in other states, a candidate wins the primary and the state party decides, you got 25 delegates from this state, here's the 25 people. it's across the board, it varies. >> republican convention, mid-july in cleveland. last primary, early june. what are the key states as we approach early june that are going to make or break this race? >> we got a couple big ones. the question is, can trump hit 1237? pennsylvania is the first big wild card that's going to come at the end of this month. trurp looks like he's going to win it, but we talk about the different kinds of delegates. they got this thing called unbound delegates. they got 54 of them. they're technically free agents, but a lot of them
7:12 am
they will honor the statewide winner. if trump gets a big win there, he could get a lot more delegates than people are thinking. indiana, that's may 3rd. that looms as the ultimate wild card in all of this right now. you could make a strong case it's a cruz state. you could make a strong case it's a trump state. the swing in delegates based on a few points is huge. so in terms of trump getting to 1237, that's the biggest wild card. >> quickly, congress inventiven after wisconsin, you still believe that this morning? >> i think he can get to 1237. it has a lot to do with pennsylvania. tell me who wins indiana, and i'll tell you if he gets there. >> we'll know in a few weeks. steve, thanks. >> one other note on politics. one week from today, donald trump will join us live for an exclusive town hall on our plaza. he'll answer questions from our crowd. that's next thursday, april 21st. now to extremely close encounters. russian frighter jets
