if he runs the table and his percentage is more than 50%, he has a good shot of racking up about 100 delegates tonight out of 118 available. he does that, that's step number up with. step number two is almost the superdelegates in pennsylvania on the republican side. these folks are free agents. there's 54 of them. some say they'll be determined by how the vote goes. but it becomes an arm twisting type of moment. donald trump has to prove he can win some of these people over. and then third he has go into indiana and beat ted cruz. if he does that he has a glide path. if he falls short on one, it's a battle to the convention. >> this cruz/kasich alliance, was this their idea or somebody in their campaigns? >> they realized they
do something to shake up the race. this wasn't much of an alliance. the whole deal was john kasich said i'm not going to campaign in indiana, but i still want my people to vote for me. that sometimes sends mixed signals. you don't know why you're seeing it so hard, but it comes down to a week from now. >> it seems to be falling apart a bit. >> not looking good, that's for sure. >> okay. hillary clinton expected to do well and expand her lead over bernie sanders, but he says he's in it until the end. >> i believe him. he wants to be able to go to every single primary. the last one in the district of columbia on june 14th. he wants to go all the way. what democrats are watching is more of the tone and the rhetoric coming from him. is it more about donald trump and the republicans or many about hillary clinton and watching his tone tonight and tomorrow will be very important. >> will he and hillary clinton both have to be looking at the end game. >> i think everyone has to look
