tv Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans CNN April 6, 2016 2:00am-3:01am PDT
our breaking news this morning, the crucial primary wins for ted cruz and bernie sanders. victories in wisconsin that keep the two candidates viable and that are shaking up the race for president. on the republican side, with 99% of the vote counted, cruz soars 13 points past donald trump nabbing 48% of the vote, john kasich a distant third. on the democratic side, bernie sanders wallops hillary clinton taking 56% of the vote to clinton's 43%. cruz and sanders celebrate their wins at raucous victory rallies claiming that even though they're underdogs they do have a path to the white house. >> as a result of the people of wisconsin defying the media, defying the pundits, i'm more and more convinced that our campaign is going to earn the 1,237 delegates needed to win. either before cleveland or at
the convention in cleveland, together we will win a majority of the delegates and together we will beat hillary clinton in november. >> with our victory tonight in wisconsin, we have now won seven out of eight of the last caucuses and primaries. [ cheers ] and we have won almost all of them with overwhelming landslide numbers. >> the wisconsin results move ted cruz closer to that magic number of delegates, 1,237, and they tip the republican party much closer to a contested convention in cleveland. let's game out what may happen on the republican side. want to bring in the panel, cnn political analyst, josh rogin.
senior reporter for media and politics, dylan byers, and senior media correspondent brian stelter, host of "reliable sources." the chance of a contested convention, denying trump the 1,237 he needs, it looks like it could happen. >> the chances went way up after last night. if you had asked the political professionals inside the republican party -- and i did -- only a week ago they would say donald trump is on path to 1237. today nobody can make that claim. when they were figuring donald trump's path to 1237, that included him winning wisconsin, which until about a week ago he was expected to do. now the math totally changes. so now we see donald trump on the path to maybe 1180, maybe 1190. that's a little too close for comfort for the trump movement. if they can get it down to 1150, 1120, then we have a real game. so that's what's going on behind the scenes. in public, it's a total shift of
rhetoric with ted cruz acknowledging that rather than get 1237 before the convention, he will try to get it at convention. that's been kasich's strategy all along. this idea of contested convention is now normal and what is expected. >> it was a fantasy of the press a few months ago. political reporters dreaming about this scenario, and now it seems true. >> that's right. >> dylan byers, it appears it is moving that direction. kasich hoping for that contested convention. cruz suggesting last night if we don't get 1237 we'll get them at the convention. is the pressure on kasich now to get out of this race going to become more intense? >> right. i think the pressure on kasich to get out of the race has always been intense. the case he makes is that he's best positioned by the polls, any way, if not by actual concrete support, to beat hillary clinton. what kasich is sort of riding on is this idea that somehow the
donald trump circus and the ted cruz circus, that's all going to end. and that thing also revert to normal course where the republican establishment rallies around a safe candidate like kasich. that's so tone deaf to what is actually happening with the republican party this cycle. this shot the kasich cycle. it's not mitt romney in 2012. it's not john mccain in 2008 what he's hoping is that donald trump who still has time to become even more unpalatable to voters, and ted cruz who may yet become yet more unpalatable to voters than those two already are, that somehow he will benefit from that. he's so ill-positioned to do that having only won his homestate of ohio. >> let's talk about donald trump and his reaction to the cruz victory last night. he did not have a -- he did not have an event. he wasn't on camera or anything. but this is what he released in
this kind of lengthy statement. donald j. trump withstood the onslaught of the establishment yet again. lying ted cruz had the governor of wisconsin, many conservative talk radio show hosts and the entire party apparatus behind him. not only was he propelled by the anti-trump super pacs spending of count also millions of dollars and false advertising. ted cruz is worse than a puppet, is he a trojan horse being used by the party bosses attempt ing to steal the nomination from mr. trump. wow. >> i will take issue with trump's rendering of greek history. if you're the trojan horse story f you're infiltrating the city of troy and destroying from within, that seems like trump what he did to the republican party. he snuck into the party, totally obliterated it, now it's broken beyond all recognition. i think trump is a much better candidate for trojan horse. on the merits, this is donald
trump just lashing out, accusing ted cruz of breaking the law with no evidence. it's standard fare for the trump campaign. let's remember that trump's narrative is winning begets winning. last night he was not winning and he seems upset about it. >> it is standard fare but it does worry me. the idea that after defeats trump suggested cruz is doing something illegal. using words like puppet. it suggests that the wins are not legal when they're not winniwins for trump. you wonder how that will play out don't road, what happens with trump supporters if they feel something has been stolen from them. i find it concerning when we hear this rhetoric from trump time and time again. the message from the cruz aides, trump is in meltdown mode. >> dylan, if trump has hit his
ceiling with supporters what does he have to do from this point out to win support? >> there's a significant group of people who don't care if donald trump has a no good very bad week. they don't mind that he keeps throwing out baseless accusations, they just fundamentally don't care, they don't believe anything you or i are saying. they don't believe the media he succeeded in demonizing the media. he needs to continue to hold that support which will be very easy. the challenge will be to demonstrate to those people who have begun to doubt him, who maybe are leaning more towards ted cruz who do have a problem with some things he said about women, the comments he made about abortion, he will have to find a way to put that in the past. to demonstrate his trumpian bravado and his promise to make america great again somehow supersedes all of these controversial things that happened in the past week.
normally i would say there's no way do it, but he's donald trump and probably can. >> trump is always effective at changing the subject when he wants to. the front page of the "washington post," it's about his plan about how to make mexico pay for the wall. he gave the post a two-page memo, probably knowing he would lose in wisconsin he tried to shift the narrative again. >> which between you and i as media reporters you have to ask how often will the media keep letting him change the narrative. >> when he wins new york, that will change the narrative a lot. we have to talk about democrats. hillary clinton suffering a crushing defeat last night. bernie sanders cleaning up in wisconsin. can his momentum be stopped? our panel breaks it down next. the pursuit of healthier.
it begins from the second we're born. because, healthier doesn't happen all by itself. it needs to be earned every day. using wellness to keep away illness. and believing a single life can be made better by millions of others. as a health services and innovation company optum powers modern healthcare by connecting every part of it. so while the world keeps searching for healthier we're here to make healthier happen. >>psst. hey... where you going? we've got that thing! you know...diarrhea? abdominal pain? but we said we'd be there... woap, who makes the decisions around here? it's me. don't think i'll make it. stomach again...send! if you're living with frequent, unpredictable diarrhea and abdominal pain, you may have irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea or ibs-d - a condition that can be really frustrating. talk to your doctor about new viberzi. a different way to treat ibs-d. viberzi is a prescription medication you take every day that helps proactively manage
both diarrhea and abdominal pain at the same time. so you stay ahead of your symptoms. viberzi can cause new or worsening abdominal pain. do not take viberzi if you have or may have had pancreas or severe liver problems, problems with alcohol abuse, long-lasting or severe constipation, or a blockage of your bowel or gallbladder. if you are taking viberzi, you should not take medicines that cause constipation. the most common side effects of viberzi include constipation, nausea, and abdominal pain. stay ahead of ibs-d... with new viberzi. twell what if i told you that peanuts can work for you? that's right. i'm talking full time delivery of 7 grams of protein and 6 essential nutrients. ever see a peanut take a day off? i don't think so. harness the hardworking power of the peanut. i accept i do a shorter i set these days.22. i even accept i have a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. but i won't play anything less than my best. so if there's something better than warfarin,
i'm going for it. eliquis. eliquis reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin, plus it had significantly less major bleeding than warfarin... eliquis had both... that's what i wanted to hear. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... ...and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i accept i don't play ...quite like i used to. but i'm still bringing my best. and going for eliquis. reduced risk of stroke plus less major bleeding. ask your doctor... ...if switching... ...to eliquis is right for you.

if you ignore what you hear on corporate media, the facts are pretty clear -- we have a path towards victory, a path towards the white house. >> bernie sanders resounding win overnight in wisconsin far surpasses his most optimistic polling numbers. he's won 7 of the last 8 democratic contests. let's bring back our dream team panel to break down the democratic side of the race. brian stelter, april 14th is the debate here on cnn. april 19th is the democratic primary in new york. how tough is this week going to get? >> this is a debate that bernie sanders wanted for many months.
back in january he said let's debate before new york. clearly he saw an opportunity a long time ago to bring this moment home to compete heavily in the state where we're sitting now. a week later, in pennsylvania. so april 26th, one week after the new york primary. but he's up against the former new york senator. this is going to in some ways distill the entire contest. we'll see sanders take his message about trade to parts of this state, parts of upstate new york that have been economically depressed for years. it will resonate effectively there. >> let's talk about some of these exit polls. i wanto drill into what voters were telling us as they were leaving polling places. who has the right experience? hillary clinton, 85% broke for hillary clinton. electability, best chance to beat donald trump in november, broke for clinton. these are two of the most important reasons to vote for a candidate. bermers has the energy and inspiration factor. josh rogin, what are democrats thinking here and how does
hillary clinton turn this around so the momentum for bernie sanders, this momentum he has, she can get people to focus on the electable question and the experience question not the trustworthiness and the energy question. >> two things. the calendar will help turn things around for hillary clinton by itself. you couldn't get two more different states than wisconsin and new york. hillary clinton is favored in new york. the demographics break for her there. she spent a lot of time there shoring up support. bernie spent a lot of time in wisconsin which seems to have paid off. what hillary clinton has to do in the longer term is find a way to sort of capture this enthusiasm and momentum and bring bernie sanders camp into her camp as they head towards the convention. when bernie sanders talks about a contested convention, something he may be doing stir the pot but maybe also a
possibility, that's bad for hillary clinton. she wants to keep the veneer of a democratic party that has some differences but it largely united as opposed to the gop party which is broken at the seams. so the longer this goes on, the harder that is for her to do. she has to keep the public face that everything is going okay. new york will be key to that. >> new york is key to that. she has to win -- she doesn't just have to win. she has to win by a sizable margin. she's already spending time upstate and in the far western parts, much like when she campaigned for senate first time around. dylan, how does she have to perform in new york in order to make it count? she has to win and win big. as much as we cast doubt on bernie sanders path towards the nomination or a brokered convention, it is true if hillary clinton were to lose -- i don't mean the sanders campaign spinning a loss, but
really fundamentally lose new york to bernie sanders, that would change the narrative. it is your homestate, and the rule in politics is that you do have to at least win your homestate. for me, i'm interested if what does bernie sanders have to do in new york. you go back to the exit polls, no one doubts bernie sanders enthusiasm. no one doubts he's passionate about the things he talks about. there was an interview he gave with new york daily news recently where he showed an inability to answer some fundamental questions not just about other policy issues, like foreign policy, but about his central policy which is taking on wall street. he seemed unprepared. if he wants to show up in new york, what he'll have to do is demonstrate that he has a command of some of these issues, so that huge turnout for those exit polls that say hillary clinton has more experience, she's better suited to be president, he can't make the argument he can compete with her on that level if he can't get a solid grasp and come up with
serious, substantive answers on how he would take on wall street and what he would do about domestic and foreign policy. >> dylan, that's good point. >> the clinton campaign could use that interview in the days to come. >> and he couldn't explain how he would break up the banks. breaking up the banks would be a fundamental change to the financial system. he has excited so many followers on that idea of breaking up the banks, punishing the bank force the financial crisis, but stumbled on how he would execute it. >> we saw clinton's press secretary commenting on that saying if you're going to be a single issue candidate, at least know your single issue. that's maybe trying out an attack line that we'll hear in the days to come. there were signals last night that the clinton campaign will go tougher at sanders in the days ahead, they'll wait until later to unify the party and just take away whatever semblance of momentum sanders has. whether he has it or not, they want to take away that
perception. >> amazing. >> thanks, guys. let's look some more at those exit polls. the economy issue number one for voters in wisconsin. we've seen it in almost every primary state so far. 37% of democratic voters put the economy and jobs at the top of their list, followed by government spending, terrorism and immigration. of those who said economy and jobs 54% voted for sanders, 46% for clinton. on the republican side, voters are fearful about the u.s. economy. look at that, wisconsin republicans are overwhelmingly worried, 94%. of that 94%, cruz took the largest share of votes. this was one of the many areas that donald trump consistent won in primary states. in wisconsin, it was cruz. another area where that happened, trade. more than half of all republican voters say trade with other countries takes away u.s. jobs.
this was much closer than previous contests, donald trump with a slight edge over cruz. this is a big edge. trump usually dominates with this group. of those who think ber national trade is an american job killer, usually that's a trump category. not this time. >> three states moving forward with new laws that critics say legalizes discrimination against the lgbt community but not without consequences. we'll tell you what those are coming up. in your mutual fund. we invested in your fund to help us pay for a college education for our son. we've enclosed a picture of our son so that you can get a sense there are real people out here trusting you with their hard-earned money. ♪ at fidelity, we don't just manage money, we manage people's money. ♪

welcome back to "early start," i'm miguel marquez. >> i'm christine romans. big morning. 30 minutes past the hour. our breaking news, crucial primary wins for ted cruz and bernie sanders. victories in wisconsin that keep the two candidates viable and that has shaken up the race for president on the republican side. cruz soars 13 points past the front-runner, donald trump, nabbing 48% of the vote. on the democratic side, bernie sanders wallops hillary clinton statewide 56% of the vote to clinton's 43%. cruz and sanders celebrate their wins at raucous victory rallies, claiming even though they're underdogs they do have a path to the white house. >> as a result of the people of wisconsin defying the media. defying the pundits, i'm more and more convinced that our campaign is going to earn the 1,237 delegates needed to win the republican nomination. either before cleveland or at
the convention in cleveland, together we will win a majority of the delegates and together we will beat hillary clinton in november. >> with our victory tonight in wisconsin, we have now won seven out of eight of the last caucuses and primaries. [ cheers ] and we have won almost all of them with overwhelming landslide numbers. >> the wisconsin results move ted cruz closer to that magic number of delegates needed to win, 1237, and they tip the republican party much closer to a contested convention in cleveland.
to help us game out all that, let's bring in the class "a" panel, cnn's political analyst, josh rogin. senior reporter for media and politics, dylan byers, and senior media correspondent, brian stelter. brian, very bad week for donald trump going into this thing. he got into it with the conservative talk show hosts in wisconsin. is this a speed bump for him or does this say something bigger? >> could be more than a speed bump. some people are asking should we be calling ted cruz the front-runner and not donald trump if there's not an obvious confident path for trump to reach that 1237 number? is he the front-runner really at all? i think there will be more conversation about that in the days to come. you mentioned conservative talk radio. that was significant in wisconsin. >> huge. >> people were pointing to that in the days before voting. we heard trump calling into the "never trump" radio shows.
trump deserves credit for calling in, taking the challenge. but one of the hosts said can the candidate win wisconsin without talk radio? maybe the answer is no. these were powerful shows aligned against trump. >> let's listen to what donald trump had to say or read what donald trump had to say about that race yesterday. >> donald j. trump withstood the onslaught of the establishment yet again. lying ted cruz had the governor of wisconsin, many conservative talk radio show hosts and the entire party apparatus behind him. not only was he propelled by the anti-trump super pacs spending countless millions of dollars of dollars on fams false advertising, he was coordinating with his own super pac, which is illegal, he says, who totally control him. ted cruz is worse than a puppet, he's a trojan horse being used by the party bosses attempting to steal the nomination from mr. trump. when donald trump loses, he
slings the mud and says somehow the nomination has been stolen from him. >> absolutely. like we said, it's vintage trump. every time we read this statement from trump, i feel that these accusations of coordination with super pacs are baseless. but of course donald trump has a fervant support base that will believe whatever he tells them. by putting the onus on ted cruz to respond, he's riled up that support and has once again changed the narrative. for him, any time he loses a state to ted cruz, it's always going to be much more effective to change the narrative and to come out and give some sort of concession speech. that's what you saw him doing here tonight. the question i have, if you get beyond his sort of core base of support, which is a limited group, how often can he keep upping the level of insanity of
what he's saying before people really get tired of it and begin to go to cruz if only to block trump's path towards the nomination. >> perhaps that's what happened. he did win a few delegates in wisconsin, but they expect him to poll better in the north and western parts of the state. what happened here? >> he lost 90% of the wisconsin delegates and fell 30 delegates behind his previous plan to reach 1237 before the convention. one of the big takeaways from tonight will end up being that all of this discussion about a unity candidate being dropped in at convention will largely go away now that ted cruz is making the argument that he is that unity candidate. if he can win states like this, amass a comparable number of delegates, his argument going forward, we saw him make this argument in his speech last night, when it comes to the convention he will be able to get to the 1237, maybe in the first ballot or the second
ballot. that will eliminate the need for somebody to come in and save the party. if there's going to be unity t could be ted cruz. donald trump's argument that he'll be able to prevent ted cruz from getting to a contested convention took a big hit. >> hearing the word ted cruz and unity in the same sentence is incredible. >> let's listen to ted cruz in his own words at his victory rally last night talking about that fact. >> we are winning because we're uniting the republican party. of the 17 candidates who started this race a terrific, talented, dynamic field five have now endorsed this campaign. we got the full spectrum of the republican party coming together and uniting behind this campaign. >> dylan, is the party uniting after shattering?
is it all relative here. >> humpty-dumpty. >> i will say this, a significant chunk of the republican party is begrudgingly uniting. i don't think this is what they thought unity looked like. take for instance the right-wing radio hosts, not the linbaugh's or sean hannities, but those who value and care about conservativism, constitutionalism, key conservative ideas, partnering now or rallying behind the same candidate as some of the much more moderate establishment figures in washington. yeah, i'll say it, ted cruz is uniting everyone outside of trump's core group. you know, i think they're doing it because they have no other choice. >> as we look at the numbers, one other point. there was much higher turnout for the gop last night than for
the democrats. once again, another state where there's more interest in going to the ballot box among republicans than democrats. maybe that's because some people wanted to go to the polls to stop trump, but it's another sign of worries for the democrats in the fall. of those who decided late they broke for ted cruz. you know, 43%, 44% broke for ted cruz. those whose most important candidate quality electability, decisively, ted cruz. shares my values, ted cruz. interesting the lack of excitement. feelings if trump were elected president, concerned or scared, that's 58% are concerned or scared. they're not necessarily overly excited about ted cruz if he becomes president. only 13% are excited. ted cruz, josh rogin what a lot of work to do. he does have a lot of work to do. i think the numbers show that for republicans, both
professionals and republicans on the street, this is more about -- this is about more than even the 2016 election. this is about saving their party, about saving the conservative movement. nobody knows who will win the election in november. but they would rather lose with ted cruz than lose with donald trump because then at least they know they would have run a conservative, they would have had conservative values at the forefront, and this sort of eroding trust in donald trump is leaning towards this shaky consensus around ted cruz that he is the best one to represent the larger republican and conservative ideals, not just in 2016, but even after the election. so it's as much about saving the party as anything else. >> i feel like the republican race is finally starting. >> if i can, to josh's point, republic republican primary voters don't tend to care as much about electability as democrats.
there's been a deep divide in the party about whether you vote with someone with your values or who can actually get elected. bernie sanders with another big win in wisconsin, but does he have a path to the white house? our panel will tell us all about that coming up. i know what you're thiining, they all claim stuff like that. yeah, but some of them are stretching the truth a little bit. one claimed to be four times better. we said, four times better than who? they said, four times better than we used to be. wh-wh-wha? if you're four times better than you used to be and you're still not the best, your tagline should be, "not as rubbish as we were."

eight democratic contests. let's bring back our esteemed panel to break down the democratic side of the race. josh rogin, corporate media says he can't. bernie says he can. can he? >> right. the answer is probably not. the sanders people are convincing in one aspect. there's a contrast in the media and people say bernie, bless his heart, he's adorable. that's true. where the sanders campaign loses me is when they compare his delegate drive to barack obama's delegate drive in 2008. in 2008, barack obama had a sophisticated, elaborate plan to peel off superdelegates and caught hillary clinton by surprise. bernie sanders does not have
that kind of thing going. so it comes down to a wish rather than reality. >> on the 14th, head to head debate between hillary clinton and bernie sanders. what is that going to look like? >> this is the debate sanders very much wanted for a long time. in an interview that came out a few minutes ago, at one point clinton says this about sanders, he's relatively new democrat, in fact i'm not even sure she is one. and young supporters being fed a list of misrepresentation. i'm sure we will hear more from clinton about that in the days to come. >> how well does sanders have to perform in new york or conversely how much does hillary clinton have to beat him by in new york to put it to bed? >> certainly it's hillary clinton's to lose, in that regard sanders can claim that a narrower than expected loss is
truly a victory for him. he can sort of continue this narrative that he has the momentum. then for hillary clinton, she has to win. that's her state even though bernie sanders was born in brooklyn. that's her state. the expectations for her are very high. what sanders needs to do now is prepare for the new york city media market. he needs to prepare for the fact that he's been hit harder than he's been hit in the past. you saw that going back to the new york daily news interview where he failed to answer fundamental basic questions about his policy plans including the central theme of his campaign, which has been taking on wall street and breaking up banks. he has a lot to prove and demonstrate if his campaign believes he can get a brokered convention. >> giving credit where it's due, this string of victories for sanders and wisconsin last night, it underscores this country is more diverse.
we talk about clinton on one side, cruz and trump on the other. i think for the past months we have heard about trump supporters feeling voiceless. trump seconds pressing emotions. a lot of sanders supporters have felt the same way for a long time, particularly young people. the fact there is this candidate they can rally behind. the fact that wisconsin was a big win for sanders should be acknowledged, maybe even by clinton's side. i know she's frustrated by young people supporting sanders, but she could be celebrating the fact that there's a lot of people interested in politics at this moment because of it. >> she congratulated him in a tweet. sanders seeing that her achilles heel are the superdelegates, said this about trying to pry away some of the superdelegates away from her. >> i think that a lot of these superdelegates will be looking around them and they'll be saying which candidate has the momentum? which candidate is bringing out
huge numbers of people and creating huge -- [ cheers ] -- which candidate can bring out large numbers of people? >> i want to get your take on this. josh, starting with you. >> sure. you have both the same narrative coming out of the trump campaign and sanders campaign that somehow the rules are unfair. that the cards are stacked against them. and that this represents an impropriety. the facts are that the rules are the rules. they're there for a reason. and this is the reason, to keep candidates from taking over the party from the outside. that's what the whole system was designed to do. now that the sanders campaign and trump campaign are starting to realize that, deal with that, realize they're at a disadvantage because of that, they'll cry foul. but the rules are there for a reason. this is a party process, not just one man, one vote. >> dylan, anything that -- does
that make sense to you? will those claims work? >> yeah. what josh says makes sense to me. i get where the sanders campaign is coming from. it's the same thing when they talk about the mysterious superdelegates coming over to sanders or going to brokered convention. they're trying to sustain hope. the number one thing that can hurt bernie sanders momentum now is this narrative that somehow he doesn't have a chance. as long as they can convince supporters that he does have a chance, the more he can sustain his campaign and push, if not his own chance of becoming president, push that democratic socialist agenda he has been so effective in pushing. >> biggest media market coming up on the 19th. it will be a fascinating race. thank you all for joining us this morning. three states moving forward with religious freedom laws that critics say legalize discrimination, but there are new consequences.

we have this election covered the way only cnn can. christine romans has a look at where the races stand now. >> hi. good morning, you guys. wisconsin was a must win for ted cruz and bernie sanders. and they did just that. let's look at the numbers. cruz's decisive victory in wisconsin shaking up the republican race now. he won with more than 48% of the vote. cruz will take 36 of those. now, donald trump will get three delegates for his second place finish, which means he is still on top of the gop delegate race. the math isn't adding up for him to clinch the nomination before the convention. this of course sets the stage for a delegate fight, fight at an open convention with 16 primaries and caucuses to go here. trump will need to win 60% of the remaining pledged delegates to reach the magical number of
