7:02 am
this election is. a new national poll shows hillary clinton expanding her lead over donald trump to 13%. >> but as we know, this race will be won or lost in the battle ground states. according to quinnipiac polls just out this morning, trump is now leading in florida, 42%-41%. that's a big reversal. clinton was up big in that poll just a month ago. in pennsylvania it is 43%-41% and it is a tie in the battleground of ohio. we have a lot to get to this morning, including our interview with bernie sanders. but let's start with the republicans. nbc's hallie jackson is in cleveland where the republican convention gets under way in about five days. hallie, good morning. >> hi, matt, good morning. before that convention here begins, we should know who donald trump's vice presidential pick will be. top trump insiders telling nbc news trump will appear publicly with that person on friday with one source close to the campaign telling m
7:03 am
decision has been made, and until trump definitively settles on who he wants as his vp pick, that source says don't go printing the yard signs just yet. today with tryouts over, it's decision time now for donald trump. >> i am supporting donald trump -- >> indiana governor pence wrapping up his whirlwind. >> i don't know if he is going to be the governor or your vice president, who the hell knows. >> trump promises his. >> he's looking for an attack dog that can take on hillary

7:07 am
those who would play to the worst of our feelings. >> clinton's next move, picking a running mate. the clinton campaign is vetting the former nato supreme allied commander as a possible vice presidential choice, and king, a is that considered to be at the top of the short list. lynch repeatedly deflecting questions about the investigation, pointed to fbi director, james comey's -- >> i would have to refer you
7:08 am
nothing of any relationship to the e-mail investigation was discussed. >> that e-mail issue still overshadowing clinton's campaign, even as she tries to move on from a contentious primary and unite democrats behind her. >> thank you. senator bernie sanders is with us from washington, d.c. senator, good morning to you and thank you for joining us. >> my pleasure. >> let me start with a question a lot of people have been asking lately, and hillary wrapped up the nomination of your party about 35 days ago, and why did it take so long for you to endorse her peufplt it was a lot of work to do to make sure we have the strongest platform. what my campaign is about is expanding the pheult class and raising the minimum wage and
7:09 am
she adhered to some of your core principles. >> well, it was a question of bringing the party together around the progressive agenda. what ended up happening is the democratic platform turns out now to be the most progressive platform the democratic party's ever had. i'm proud of that. we didn't get everything we wanted but it is a progressive platform. >> senator senator sanders, let's be blunt about it. this is more about you, donald trump ought not to be president, and in your mind is this really a choice between a lesser of two evils? >> no, this is a choice about making sure that the middle class of this country that has been in decline for 40 years gets rebuilt. >> in your speech, what exactly did that mean?
7:10 am
side by side? will you speak at the convention? >> i suspect i will speak at the convention and i suspect i will be running all over this country. look, i think the election of donald trump will be a disaster for this country. i don't think the people of this country want to see somebody proposing hundreds of billions of dollars in tax breaks for the richest two-tenths of 1%. that's not what this country needs. >> lastly, the fbi director came out and said hillary clinton was extremely careless with highly sensitive e-mail information, and in fact many of the explanation she has given about her practices, turned out not to be true. did any of that from director comey give you pause before you endorsed her, and if not, why not? >> hillary clinton is not
7:11 am
perfect human being, and bernie sanders is not a perfect human being. and it's not donald trump as a person or hillary clinton a person. >> that's not a personal issue. >> which candidate is going to do more for ordinary americans? i think the answer to that is very, very clear. if you are talking about creating jobs and rebuilding our infrastructure and expanding health care and making college affordable for all people, i think that is hillary clinton's agenda. if you want a candidate for president in 2016 who thinks that climate change is a hoax despite what the entire scientific community is saying, i guess donald trump is your guy. if you want somebody who divides us up by insulteding muslims or mexicans or women, donald trump
7:12 am
days or weeks, senator, you have had direct discussions with secretary clinton about you would like to see her choose as a running mate. >> that subject did not come up. >> would you hope she won the p won the nominating process. >> but can you have an opinion. >> this is what i think, . we need somebody who is not attached to wall street, and we have a history for somebody fighting up and working for families and we should make college education public colleges and universities tuition free. >> senator bernie sanders, we appreciate you spending
