for donald trump because 2/3 of republicans recognize he's not the best candidate to go against clinton because he loses against hillary clinton. >> reporter: mocks ss ss ss still. >> i have to explain to the people, they don't understand basic physics, basic mathematics, basic whatever you want to call it. >> reporter: surrounded by family and staff, trump gave credit to his campaign manager, who is still under investigation for allegedly grabbing a reporter last week. while tuesday's event was billed as a press conference -- >> thank you very much, everybody. thank you. >> reporter: trump left the stage without taking a single question. >> one of the statistics out of last night is the fact that@ donald trump was able to barrel through anti-trumpads. more than $20 million spent

7:06 am
we're republicans and democrats and having common sense solutions, we've been able to do well. we have a ways to go, to make sure we're going to be traveling everywhere. we'll have a national campaign, and i'll be the n ninee. >> i'll ask you about that. i swore there would be no math, but if youou win every delegate from here on out, you still don't meet the magic number of 1,237, which means it would have to be the result of a contested convention. can you explain to people who support you, how are you going to pull that off? >> nobody is going to get enough delegates to win at the convention. everyone is going too fall short. that was what was so big about ohio. basically, for those people that wanted to have some sort of common sense in this election, when they wanted somebody that could raise the bar, you know, i refused to take the low road to the highest office. if you seeee these guys fighting on the stage, it was absolutely unbelievable, what was going on there.
7:07 am
delegates. when we get there, the delegates will have to figure out,t, number one, who can run the country, who has the r rord and, three, who can win. >> nobody is going to have the required n nber of delegates, that's your prediction. one person who, mathematically, can get the required number of delegates, and that's donald trump. let me ask you this way: would you be willing to actively cooperate with ted cruz and his campaign to make sure that donald trump does not get to 1,237 andhen take your chances at the convention? >> well, look, i don't have any intention of doing anything other than going out across the country and telli people about my message. in terms of whether campaigns will speak or not, i don't know. i don't get in the middle of that. i'm not a political operative. i'm a candidate. >> but as the guy on the masthead, you wouldn't be
7:08 am
>> look, i can tell you, all i can tell you about this, matt, is i'm out there running to the president. i'm not out to stop donald trump or stop anybody else. by winning yesterday in ohio, i've dealt him a very, very big blow to being able to have the number of delegates. if you want to talk about mathematics and you want to talk about probability, and really look at it hard -- and let me tell you the biggest probability, they can't win a general election for either of these guys. that's the biggest probability we have. >> let's end on saying congratulations on your win in ohio. >> i appreciate you guys. came out when i was in new hampshire and i said we'd keep going. i appreciate the people of ohio for allowing me to do this. ter the country hears about my record, i think we'll continue to rise. god bless our country. >> gogornor, thank you very much for being with us. on the democratic side, it s a huge night for hillary clinton, as we said.

7:10 am
>> we're closer to securing the democratic party nomination and winning this election in november! >> reporter: overnight, clinton managed to seal the deal in two more states. the apparent winner in missouri and illinois. despite a sanders advertising glitch, clinton carriri three states by double digits. in phoenix, arizona, sanders showed no signs of letting up. >> don't let people tell you that you can't think big. >> reporter: or giving up. >> next week, arizona has avery important election. we will win if the voter turnout is high. let's make it high. thank you all very much! >> reporter: but clinton is also looking to arizona. today, releasing this new spanish langugue ad. and leaving no doubt she's also settg her sights on donald trump, the man who may be her
7:11 am
>> our commander in chief had t be able to defend our country, not embarrass it. >> campaign officials acknowledge the steep odds. in order for sanders to come back, he has to win big states like new york and pennsylvania, and winning them by huge mar zwrin -- margins. still, he can stay in the race as long as he wants to. >> kristen, thank you very much. let's dive further into this with chuck todd. nbc's political director and moderator of "meet the press." nicolle wallace, political analyst, and mark, the managing editor of "bloomberg politics." give me your headline from last night. >> i think you'll hear a deafening roar in the republican party about the prospects of a brokered convention. it'll take place at the same time that trump has done nothing but strengthen himself. there is a disconnect between the conversation the republicans are having and the reality.
7:12 am
died last night. the republican establishment is shockingly willing now to let donald trump be the nominee. they're resigned to it, and they'll focus on trying to hold the house and the senate. >> let me pick up on that. nicolle, we talk about the stages of grief at the table. the bargaining, the anger. >> she does it all on a daily basis. >> exactly. >> as our establishment republican, is it acceptance phase? if establishment republicans are saying, we accept it, ds that mean we're accepting we're probably going to lose the white house in 2016? >> i think it is a healthy voters. our voters are speaking at the top of their lungs, and they're dog so at the polls, which is place. last night. he had the posbility of having the republican party start to coalesce around him, until he lost everything last night. >> john kasich, he'd been hanging around on the sidelines, mark, for a long time. he steps up and wins his home state of ohio.
7:13 am
slingshot effect from that, that carries him further? >> i think he has 72 hours to show the establishment and the voters that he's a viable person here. his argument about the general election is powerful, but the delegates is more powerful. he can't win a majority now, and it'll be up to cruz and kasich to say, they're the stop trump movement. not meetings in washington. it's not campaign ads. it's not web campaigns. can either of them stop trump? i'm spectacle but they have a window to try. >> on the "times" this morning, s, trump and clinton had big nights last night, but the sounding triumphs matched anp unusual reality, most americans still don't like him or her. >> the most striking numbers in the exit polls were -- and i look at the battleground states voting -- ohio, florida and north carolina.
7:14 am
primary voters, when asked if trump and clinton are the nominees, will you be satisfied or consider a third party,y, over 40% of republicans in ohio said third party. 39% of north carolina republicans said trd party. 30% of florida republicans. look, there is an anti-trump appetite out there. there's just no messenger to tap into it. ted cruz was horrendous last night in his attempt to put the party together. >> thanks for setting me up. i'll say two words. give me your first reaction. super fast. the two words are paul ryan. >>ast gasp. if the convention blows up, he'll be the republican nominee. >> missed his window. >> part of what's happening nono acceptance that trump will be the nominee, barring some huge, unforeseen circumstance. >> thank you very much. meanile, i want to bring up something that happened on this show on tuesda donald trump apparently contradicting himself when he
7:15 am
over at abc by phone. this is what happened. he talked to abc first, before their show. they asked him about that advertisement that showed women quoting things, quotes of mr. trump. here's what he said when asked about that ad. >ave you seen that and what did you make of it? >> i have seen it, and it was romney deal. >> a couple minutes later, he appeared live on this show. here's what he had to say. >> obviously, i have not seen the ad, so i have would have to see it. i've heard about the ad, but i have not seen the ad. >> does this matter? when a guy contradicts himself within a couple of minutes, do people care? >> pre-trump, that used to be the thing that tripped up a campaign. took two days to explain it to people like chuck and mark. in the post-trump era, he contradicts himself within a news cycle. which was within the hour of the morning shows. >> hour? five munninutes.
7:16 am
of trump. the fact checkers are irrelevant irrelevant. in trump's power, in his trust he has with the supporters, the supporters trust trump more than the media. >> you asked before about whether republicans were reregning themselves to losing the general election if trump is the nominee. they believe hillary clinton is so weak that trump could beat her. part of what they're drawing on is the fact that trump flies above stuff like this and maybe he would against hillary clinton in the general election. >> we live in a post-truth political world. donald trump is the poster child. >> we have gone pasas our allotted time here. >> you're all in therapypy with me now. >> exactly. >> we're eating into the nightly news's time. >> we'll have more in the next half hour. north korea's highest court sentenced an american college student to 15 years of hard labor in prison. he was convicted o subversion and sentenced after a one-hour trial.

7:31 am
down to trump versus clinton in the general election. nearly half of those who voted for someone other than donald trump said that they would seriously consider a third party candidate going forwara. in ohio, where we are right now, obviously going to be crucial coming up in the general election. not even 2/3 -- nearly 2/3 would consider a third party candidate. only 3 in 10 said they would be satisfied with a trump versus clinton race come november. among the democrats, hillary clinton with a big night. into her numbers in illinois, look where her strengths are. the key groups supporting clinton clinton. a lar number of african-americans, 70%. did well with older democrats. sanders still does very well with the democrats under the age of 45. he also does very well with white voters. clinton showing strength with married women. also very strong with those voters who sai that experience
7:32 am
looking for with a candidate. >> peter, thank you very much. ohio governor john kasich's win in h home state raises the chances of a rare contested convention. what is that and what would it look like? here to break it down is msnbc host and political correspondent steve kornacki. good morning to you. >> morning. >> you hear contested convention, brokered convention used interchangeably. are they the same? >> brokered convention is the old term. back in the days when you didn't have the primaries. delegations from states would arrive at the convention and they'd be controlled by boss or a king maker. the king makers would get together behind closed door, hash out a deal, tell the delegates how to vote. at an open convention, the delegate would make the decision themselves in the light of day. >> get to cleveland, nobody has 1,237, the number of delegates needed to win the nomination. they hold the first ballot anyway, just to prove it? >> mostly. however, the wild card in this, is if donald trump is really
7:33 am
quite over, you also can hav about 150 probably unbound delegates. they're going to show up as fe agents. if trump is really close coming into the first vote, if he picks off enough of the unbound, he gets over. otherwise, everybody has tot vote the way they were told by the primary. >> there are a lot of conversations going on now. >> right. throughout the spring, even the states that had the primaries already, they'll have their state convention where they pick the delegates who will vote. >> after the first ballot, nobody has the required number of delegates, can anybody now say, i'm in for a second ballot? >> technically, yeah, though it's more complicated. some of the rules in some of the states tell their delegates, even on the second ballot, you have to vote the way your primary or caucus voted. not every delegate is a free agent but a lot are. beyond theheecond ballot, you're in a scenario where basically every delegate is going to be a free agent.
7:34 am
white knight candidates emerge. >> paul ryan could walk in and say, i'm ready if you want me? >> right, after the second. >> how many rounds? how long does this go on? >> it could go -- there's no limit. it goes until there is a winner. in the old days, you'd have dozens of ballots. woodrow wilson, i think it took 40 ballots and democrats settled on him. wasn'tn contention at the beginning. you get that far in, crazy things happen. >> if you get the candidate who gets the comenomination because of a contested convention, how does that impact that candidate's chances in a general ection? >> there are zero examples in the television age of american politics. zero examples in e age when primaries and caucuses determined the delegates. if the republicans went with somebody besides trump, and trump comes into the convention with the most delegates but not
7:35 am
angry donald trump and thousand or so delegates and several million trump voters who would be threatening not to vote for that party. >> a lot of tension in cleveland, ohio. steve kornacki, tnk you veryy much. let's get a check of th weather from al. >> we have great restaurants in cleveland i can take you to. fantastic.@ although, unfortunately, we're going to be flying through the midwest from cleveland to chicago all the way up to minnesota minnesota, minneapolis, high wind advisories. 38 million people under advisories. airport delays in minneapolis, des moines, chicago, indianapolis and detroit. the winds are going to be gusting upwards of 40 to 50 miles per hour. and we're going to be watching snow developing in the up of michigan, fm minnesota to wisconsin. storms will come to an end, but it is going to be a blustery day. that's what's going o braefr good wednesday morning, a

7:42 am
one of the advantages? convenience. >> i used it to talk to my friends that went to study aboard. >> text on what'sapp, and your boyfriend or girlfriend doesn't know it. >> reporter: everything is encrypted and not made readable again until the person on the receiving end opens it up. facebook, the company that owned what'sapp, cannot read the messages, either while they're sent or afterward. when police come with a court order to tap into the messages, what'sapp cannot respond by de-coding them. the fbi has been calling that part of the going dark problem. now, president obama is adding his voice. >> that, i think, does not strike the balance that we have lived with for 200, 300 years. >> reporter: the co-founder of facebook says the company works hard to keep terrorist material off social media. but when it comes to making all our communications secure, even so secure the police cannot read
7:43 am
that's how technology is evolving. >> i don't think requiring back doors into encryption is going to be an effective way to increase security, or is the right thing to do. >> reporter: what does it mean for users? unless congress acts, say the privacy privacy. >> it's going to be difficult to find some middle ground, where our data is secure and, yet, law enforcement can access it. >> the justice department still trying to decide how to proceed in a criminal investigation they've been unable to get past the what'sapp encryption that leaves law enforcement in the dark. back to you. >> tom costello, thank you. coming up, brought back han solo. what's next for harrison ford? obviously, indiana jones. carson is in the orange room. jenna got the man behind "hamilton" to do some rapping for us. >> nice. >> get a taste of that after

we started on xarelto . nice pass. safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelt without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleedingngo stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto , watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not takxarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. ll your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto , tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto ... ...was the righthtove for us.
