7:00 pm
>> trump came out to the song with a chorus we are the victors, you are the losers. not exactly gracious. she's not going to do that. i think if you look back at that 2008 zmoech, certainly memorable for that line about breaking 18 million cracks and breaking the highest, almost breaking the highest, hardest glass ceiling. what was also about barack obama, there was a whole section in that speech where she talking about how much respect she had for president obama's journey ts energy he brought to the candidate and how much grit he shows before that. i think in some ways she needs to do that too with sanders. >> i think one of the opportunities here it wasn't a big speech. she has an opportunity to make a big speech here and really set the stakes of the election. i think she will make the contrast because the thing that will unify democrats in the end as john said several times in his interview with jake is that the fact that whatever gulf
7:01 pm
there is between sanders and clinton supporters so small compared to the kaz m between all of them and donald trump. i think she has to hit that hard. i think she's going to do it in a big way, part of her she'll make the big speech, but she'll distinguish herself from donald trump wlom she's called a loose cannon. and the olive branch to bernie sanders which she has to do because it's important thathe get those voters. she can turn what's a three-point race into an eight point race if she gets those sanders supporters at the beginning. >> she's starting out this speech tonight with his campaign video, especially, which is just being released tonight kind of
7:02 pm
targeting the obama coalition. >> and that is the key. david talked earlier about how it's completely different playing field when she move from the primary to the general election. and the scale is spectacularly large. hillary just won with 13 million votes. she needs 66 million to win the general election. donald trump got 11 and a half million, he needs 66 or more. you're talking about tens of millions of people who have not yet participated, and i know hillary's most famous woman in the world. the most highest negatives in 20 years running, the most admired woman in the world in the gal up poll, and it's that kind of attention that i think she threw this video and other things can address. you never get a second chance to make a first impression. the most famous woman in the world for years. i think what she can say is i'm on your side. listen to john, he said ready to tee it up against donald trump about setting up an economic system that works for you.
7:03 pm
there's an argument that bernie sanders has des driven, worked real well. i wonder if she's going to work to that tonight. >> about the country itself because at a time when donald trump is under assault for being divisive, the notion that the country is embracing a woman, that, you know, the country is somehow bigger than it was and that this is our history that you moved forward. you embrace each other, we're in this together. it seems to me that that will be a part of this speech as well, to set up that contrast with donald trump. >> when she started this election back in brooklyn she's not just a talk of politician. she's someone who likes to get things done. tonight she needs to tell the american people the two and three things that she would like to get done as president, going back to what i believe one of my distinguished colleagues said
7:04 pm
over there, division thing. you know, the bigness, this is a big karnt, and people want to feel like you're talking about them. their future. and i think tonight is about their future as well. >> kayly is joining us again. what did you marry from donald trump? what do you anticipate hearing from hillary clinton? >> well, i heard a concrete message, america first plan that he tied together to me very eloquently when he spoke about trade and foreign policy. i saw a vision that people can grab on to. america first, and not a politician who's going to break up the washington scheme. the washington cartel if you're senator cruz and that's the phrase you use. i saw a positive vision, i think hillary clinton, she needs to put forward that two-word message or three-word message that voters can grab on it. i think that's where it's lost upon voters. the first republican to achieve this, she deserves accommodation for that. first democrat female president.
7:05 pm
yes, she deserves absolute credit, but she needs to put forward a positive vision. voters don't know what it's about. >> that's right. and i predict the two words you'll hear, stronger together. she's been assaying that the last few days, and it's an implicit contrast than donald trump. we're stronger together. and the way we include more people. the way we become stronger is having more allies overseas. we're stronger together. that's a very distinct and different vision than donald trump's. and when you're in the business of addition, going from 10 or it 13 million voters, trying to get 65 or 70 million voters. i think this argument about inclusiveness and how we're stronger, richer, freer if we're all together. >> tonight, do you think they focus with that at all? >> actually, i'm sure she felt this. but this is at the core of her existence, i mean, her very first jock is the children's
7:06 pm
defense fund. she has gone into racist towns in the '60s in south carolina and tried to investigate the incarceration of young african american males. this is long before she was famous. >> and i told you about this video, they're dieb debuting tonight. it does give kind of a window of the group that clearly are trying to reach out to in a very overt way, we'll play that for you as soon as they're playing it for the audience there as well. >> you know, i don't to want hammer this point too relentlessly, but i feel it's so strongly, i think there's a linear nature to these campaigns that goes to the words you use and your policies. but, there's a nonlinear part of a particularly a general election where people are looking at you and imagining you in that office and in moments like this, you know, how you perform, whether you seem like someone who can rise to that, that occasion is going to be
7:07 pm
really important. this is a great opportunity for her to do that. >> and you know trump was recovering from four or five really bad days. and he had to give the speech, and they had to put it on teleprompter because he couldn't mess it up. this is really important to him, really important to the republican party. clinton's not recovering from anything other than bernie sanders. and she's got to reach out to him, but it's a real moment for her because this is something she's tried once before and she lost. it is a moment in american history which he's got to make note of. i'm sure she will. and it's an important moment in the campaign because she has to get people to start liking her. and this is a real problem she's got, as does donald trump, but the this is one way to talk to the american people and say, this is who i am. and this is what i stand for, and so give me another look. she's going to have a big audience tonight, and she'll try and take advantage of it. >> and it's the first of many
7:08 pm
occasions that she will have of course, mr. trump as well to introduce themselves or reintroduce himself to the public. the convention, the first debate, and this selection of of a vice president which i also think is another big occasion as well. i want to say something about bernie sanders. as you know, i've maintained my neutrality, and that's very important to me as an officer, but i want to say how incredibly important his campaign i think has been this entire political season. i know when you have contest ed and you know what, at the end of the day, if the family is able to come back together climate change, these are issues that are at the heart of the democratic party. and i'm glad his voice in the race. i'm glad that he has so many supporters, we're going to have
7:09 pm
a wonderful platform process, it's already starting in the district of columbia. i'm going to say congratulations to bernie sanders and his team. incredible team, i talked to some of them earlier today, and about my former colleagues, some of us can get to our campaign, but this is an incredible moment for bernie sanders. >> they have about six weeks to get the family dinner together. >> absolutely agree. >> very, very important. >> and big important phase in the campaign. >> before a speech like this, what is secretary clinton doing? >> she's practicing, rehearsing, fine tuning. she is reading it allowed to herself. she is thriving in her car, reading it allowed to herself, she's making last minute changes. this is her speech, you know, the idea that this is something else wrote it, she has poured her heart and soul into this -- >> somebody else wrote it though. >> she poured her heart and soul in it, she made changes, she has
7:10 pm
a very intimate relationship. tonight is really, really important. this is history -- not to steal the vice president's words, this is a big f'ing deal and she is not, she's not going to take it lightly, let me say that. she's been working for women's rights for her entire life and this is a momentous occasion for her. >> you were saying the next few weeks of this campaign is critical. i think so. >> the phase between the clenching of the nomination and the convention. when yo u need consolidate the party and produce a convention that tells the story you want to tell in the general election sew that phase begins tonight. i think the president will play a big role in that process and do be very help informal that process. he made a decision to stay out of the primary race, just so he could be useful at a time like
7:11 pm
this. as close as he was to secretary clinton, she hadn't served in his cabinet. but i think this is a critical time. and if you do it well. you can come out of that process with real momentum toward the general election. i also want to say this, it has to be said that hillary clinton the most tenacious figures in recent american political history. she has fought her way through so much to get to this moment. >> do we have a sense of when she's coming out? >> anderson, she'll be coming out any moment now. the crowd is now firing up. let's set the scene here. young women here it is true that
7:12 pm
and lived out here in realtime, but i am told hillary clinton will be coming out shortly. we'll start with a video here. and then she'll speak in a few moments. >> and they're only playing it tonight. is this a video they're running as commercials. played for democratic function and things. but this is definitely a sound woman supporters and senator sanders in particular. the young women are one of the biggest demographics they're trying to reach. they've been unable to. they hope things like this help out. it'll also be used on social media sort of spliced and diced on snapchat and other things, anderson. we'll be seeing it more in the
7:13 pm
months to come. >> we'll stand by for this. david, you were talk about consolidating the party at a time like this. how does the candidate go about doing that? obviously donald trump has a bigger road ahead of him in terms of that, but for hillary clinton. >> yeah, well look, again, i think the president can play a big role in that. he's someone whose been talking to both of them, i'm sure his staff has been talking to both, both campaigns. and my guess is that we will be instrumental in orchestrating a transition. he is in a position to translate some of the concerns of the sanders campaign to the clinton campaign and broker as it were some of the, some of the things that may be common ground on which they can settle moving into the convention. so i expect that in the next few days. he will be more prominent player in this process. >> i think he's going to be so key because the big question was, how do you put together the
7:14 pm
obama coalition without obama? and the truth of the matter is, you use president obama to put together the obama coalition again. and that's going to be so important, one thing i want to say about this campaign is to in 2016 has been much more steady i believe, bernie sanders kind of eyes on the prize little drama at the top, different tone. >> i want to give a shoutout to. >> let's listen in. ♪ o say, can you see by the dawn's early light ♪ ♪ what so proudly we hailed

7:17 pm
>> clearly audio issues there. we're working out there during that. again, they're going to play this video beforehand, again we ly in the weeks and months ahead, various groups. we showed some of the video earlier, this is the first time we'll see the entire video, hillary clinton's looks like her speech has been placed out on the podium. the crowd there is clearly waiting for their candidate. we're not sure how long she would be speaking. donald trump was relatively short in his speech, but i imagine hillary clinton will probably be speaking for longer. >> manage it, this is her big moment. maybe 30 minutes or so. we're talking with axelrod here, just the whole idea of the wind thing, how much does she kind of know that moment? how she plays it throughout the entire campaign. the first video when she
tv-commercial
7:18 pm
launched her campaign very much about women, featured all women. and president obama then senator obama didn't do that when we he ran, pro-black campaign in the way that you feel like this, at least for now is looking like it's going to be a pro-woman campaign, at least on this night. >> when i look at the pageantry and the staging of this as one who did advance many years ago for then vice president bush, i'm reminded of how much went into this. this is the -- >> america's going to lead, we need learn from the women of the world who have blazed new paths. think of the suffrages who gathered in 1848, and those who kept fighting until women could cast their votes. >> those who think that the women's liberation movement is a joke, may of equal opportunity.
7:19 pm

i've met so many other transgender people. their voices haven't always been heard, but i've told them, our time is coming. we're going to change the world together. >> and because i'm here, that has an impact on people like me who will come after me. >> so let's learn from the wisdom of every mother and father who teaches their daughters, there is no limit on how big she can dream and how much she can achieve. >> i'm a little feminist growing up to help all women with equal rights. i hope you can be the first woman president of the whole united states. >> women and men, young and old, latino and asian, african american, and caucasian. rich, poor, and middle class, gay and straight, and i will continue to stand strong with you. every time, every place, every way that i can. the dreams we share are worth

>> one that you have taken with me, and i am so grateful to you. it is wonderful to be back in brooklyn. [ applause ] and it may be hard to see tonight. [ applause ] but don't worry we're not smashing this one. thanks to you, we've reached a milestone. first time in our nation's history that a woman will be a major party's nominee.
7:26 pm
[ applause ] tonight, tonight's victory is not about one person, it belongs to generations of women and men who struggled and sacrificed and made this moment possible. in our country, it started right here in new york, a place called sanica falls. [ applause ] when a small but determined group of women and men came together with the idea that women deserved equal rights and they said it forth and something called the declaration of
7:27 pm
sentiments, and it was the first time in human history that that kind of declaration occurred. so we all owe so much to those who came before and tonight belongs to all of you. [ applause ] i want to -- i want to thank all the volunteers, community leaders, the activists, and organizers who supported our campaign in every state and territory, and thanks especially to our friends in new jersey for such a resounding victory tonight. [ applause ] thanks for talking to your neighbors or making
7:28 pm
contributions, your efforts have produced a strong majority of the popular vote, victories in a majority of the contests and after tonight, a majority of pledged delegates. [ applause ] i want to thank all the people across our country who have taken the time to talk with me. i've learned a lot about you, and i've learned about those persistent problems and the unfinished promise of america that you are living with. so many of you feel like you're out there on your own, that no one has your back. well, i do. i hear you. i see you. and as your president, i will always have your back. [ applause ]
7:29 pm
i want to congratulate senator sanders for the extraordinary campaign he has brought. he has spent his long career in public service fighting for progressive causes and principle and he's excited millions of voters, especially young people, and let there be no mistake, senator sanders, his campaign, and the vigorous debate that we've had about how to raise income, reduce inequality, increase upward mobility, have been very good for the democratic party and for america. [ applause ]
7:30 pm
this has been a completely felt campaign. whether you stand with senator sanders or one of the republicans. we all need to keep working to a better, fairer, stronger america. now i know it never feels good to put your heart. become short of them feeling well. [ laughter ] but as we look ahead -- as we look ahead, let's remember all that unites us. we all want an economy with more opportunity and less inequality. where wall street can never
7:31 pm
wreck main street again. we all want a government that listens to the people, the power brokers which means getting unaccountable money out. politics and we all want of a society that is tolerant, inclusive and fair. we all believe that america succeeded when more people share in our prosperity, when more people have a voice in our political system. when more people can contribute to their communities. we believe that cooperation is better than conflict, unity is better than division, empowerment is better than resentment, and bridges are better than walls. [ cheering and applause ] it's a -- it's a simple, but
7:32 pm
powerful idea. we believe that we are stronger together and the stakes in this election are high, and the choice is clear. donald trump is temper mentally unfit to be president and commander in chief. [ cheering and applause ] and he's -- he's not just trying to build a wall between america and mexico, he's trying to wall off americans from each other. when he says let's make america great again, that is code for, let's take america backwards. [ applause ] promising his supporters an
7:33 pm
economy he cannot recreate. we, however, we want to write the next chapter in american greatness. with a 21st century prosperity that lifts everyone whose been left out and left behind. including those who may not vote for us, but who deserve their chance to make a new beginning. [ cheering and applause ] when donald trump says a distinguished judge, born in indiana, can't do his job because of his mexican heritage -- [ crowd booing ] or he mocks a reporter with disabilities -- [ crowd booing ]
7:34 pm
or calls women pigs -- [ crowd booing ] it goes against everything we zand for. because we want an america where everyone is treated with respect. and where their work is valued. [ applause ] it's clear that donald trump doesn't believe we are stronger together. he has abused his primary opponents and their families, attacked the press for asking tough questions, denigrated muslims and immigrants. he wants to win by stoking fear and rubbing salt in wounds. and reminding us daily just how great he is. [ laughter ] well, we believe we should lift each other up, not tear each other down. [ cheering and applause ]
7:35 pm
we believe -- we believe we need to give americans a raise, not complain that hard-working people's wages are too high. we believe we need to help young people struggling with student debt, not pile more on our national debt with giveaways to the super wealthy. [ cheering and applause ] we believe we need to make america the clean energy superpower of the 21st century -- [ applause ] -- not insist that climate change is a hoax. to be great, we can't be small. we have to be as big as the values that define america. and we are a big-hearted, fair-minded country.
7:36 pm
we teach our children that this is one nation, under god, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. [ cheering and applause ] not just for people who look a certain way, or worship a certain way, or love a certain way, for all. indivisible. [ applause ] this election is not, however, about the same old fights between democrats and republicans. this election is different. it really is about who we are as a nation. it's about millions of americans coming together to say, we are better than this. we won't let this happen in america. [ applause ]
7:37 pm
and if you agree, whether you're a democrat, republican, or independent, i hope you will join us in just a few weeks, we will meet in philadelphia which gave birth to our nation, back in that hot summer of 1776, those early patriots knew they would all rise or fall together. well today that's more true than ever. our campaign will take this message to every corner of our country. we're stronger when our economy works for everyone, not just those at the top. with good-paying jobs and good schools, in every zip code, and a real commitment to all families and all regions of our nation. [ applause ]
7:38 pm
we are stronger when we work with our allies around the world to keep us safe. and we are stronger when we respect each other, listen to each other, and act with a sense of common purpose. [ applause ] we're stronger when every family and every community knows they're not on their own. because we are in this together. it really does take a village to raise a child. [ cheering and applause ] and too build a stronger future for us all. i learned this a long time ago, from the biggest influence in my life, my mother. she was my rock from the day i was born until the day she left us. she overcame a childhood marked
7:39 pm
by abandonment and mistreatment, and somehow managed not to become bitter or broken. my mother believed that life is about serving others. and she taught me never to back down from a bully, which it turns out was pretty good advice. [ cheers and applause ] this past saturday would have been her 97th birthday because she was born on june 4, 1919, and some of you may know the significance of that date. on the very day my mother was born, in chicago, congress was passing the 19th amendment to the constitution. [ cheering and applause ]
7:40 pm
that amendment finally gave women the right to vote. [ cheers and applause ] and i really, i really wish my mother could be here tonight. i wish she could see what a wonderful mother chelsea has become and could meet our beautiful granddaughter, charlotte. and of course, i wish she could see her daughter become the democratic party's nominee. [ cheers and applause ] so yes -- yes there are still ceilings to break for women and men for all of us, but don't let
7:41 pm
anyone tell you that great things can't happen in america. barriers can come down, justice and equality can win. our history has moved in that direction, slowly at times, but unmistake bli, thanks to generations of americans who refuse to give up or back down. now you are writing a new chapter of that story. this campaign is about making sure there are no ceilings, no limits on any of us, and this is our moment to come together. so please join our campaign, volunteer, go to hillaryclinton.com, contribute what you can. text "joy," join, to 47246. help us organize in all 50 states. [ cheers and applause ]
7:42 pm
every phone call you make, every door you knock on will move us forward. now i'm going to take a moment later tonight and the days ahead to fully absorb the history we've made here. [ cheers and applause ] but what i care about most is the history our country has yet to write. our children and grandchildren will look back at this time, at the choices we are about to make, the goals we will strive for, the principles we will live by, and we need to make sure that they can be proud of us. the end of the primaries is only the beginning of the work we're called to do. but if we stand together, we will rise together. because we are stronger
7:43 pm
together. let's go out and make that case to america. thank you, god bless you and god bless america. [ cheers and applause ] >> former secretary of state hillary clinton declaring herself the democratic presumptive, presumptive democratic presidential nominee and to take a moment historically. she is, as of now, the first woman in american history, to be a major party presidential nominee. and it is such a thing. there she is hugging her daughter, chelsea with her son-in-law, mark. there of course is former pith bill clinton. and it was a strong speech, dana bash, let me bring you in.
7:44 pm
she reached out to sanders supporters, congratulated bernie sanders on what he had accomplished. talked about all the things that united democrats, talking about the desire to fight income inequality, provide opportunity, go against main street, talked about the removing unaccountable money out of politics. and talked about creating a world that is tolerant and ine collusive and with that pivoting towards some strong statements, attacks on donald trump, calling him temper mentally unfit to be president. >> that's right. i want to take a moment to mark what image we saw just a couple of moments ago. not just with chelsea clinton as you said, bill clinton, and he's been in a lot of her speeches at these big events, big nights throughout the primary season, and getting up on the stage like that with her.
7:45 pm
having the classic spouse hand wave to the crowd. it's really been the hillary clinton show, he's obviously been an incredible surrogate for her, he's been on the road, he's been doing a lot to help her campaign, but that was at the moment, i don't think we have seen very much. the other thing that was striking in addition to what you obviously just has to stop and reflect on immediately is historic nature of this. but also, how much there were times in this speech where she could have been reading a bernie sanders speech. maybe not in cadence and in tone, but also talking about the fact that -- she was talking about a lot of the issues that he had brought up that she probably wouldn't have brought up, and i don't think that was on purpose. she was reaching out to them not to southerly, what did you think? >> absolutely. we want to make sure that wall street can never destroy main
7:46 pm
street, the only time she talked about wall street was in a negative and pa jortive way. clearly a page from the sanders playbook. it was definitely a speech aimed at sanders supporters, but also aimed at women. out there and individuals who might be vacillating, she talked about, it was a much more inclus riff speech than we've heard from other kaentds in election cycl cycles. she talked about reaching out to even though who may not vote for us, but they too deserve their chance to make a new beginning. the idea being, hey, i know that some of you aren't going to vote for me, but i'm going to fight for you too. and ask yourself, at least subliminally was of the message there, do you think donald trump would make that same pitch? anderson? >> and to hear david axelrod, we've heard a lot, what did you make of it? >> it was one of the best
7:47 pm
speeches she's ever given. one she spoke in values. sometimes she gets bogged down in sort of policy, and the themes don't come through. this was a speech about values, american values, values that not just democrats, but most americans share. and i think that was very powerful, the second thing was the way she delivered her speech. sometimes she can be very labored in her speaking. she seemed very comfortable, it was almost an intimate speech, even though -- >> conversation. >> she's talking to the american people, and it was conversational, and it wasn't the shouting we've heard at times, and it was much more powerful. i've always said she could draw people in by being more intimate rather than blasting them out. here she did, and you can see it was a very good affect. >> you know though she went big at first, she talked about being the first female nominee the history-making part of it. after she went big, she kind of went right to sticking the shift at donald trump. and you know, it seems to me that she's found her voice when
7:48 pm
it comes to taking donald trump. she did it in her foreign spols speech, and then tonight, she talked about him stoking fear, rubbing salt in wounds, abusing his primary opponents and their families. she talked about how her mother taught her to deal with a bully. and on and on and on, and we are not even into the general election campaign. we are not even at the convention. so imagine what this will be. >> trump's saying already in his speech tonight. >> had a big message here. interesting way, on the one hand, there was the mile storen than she represented in american history, and on the other, there was the argument, i think the core argument tonight was that america works better when it's inclusive. when it doesn't divide and build walls among all of us. you know, if you talk about the economy right now, it's a wash. if you talk about security, it's a wash between the party. you talk about bringing change
7:49 pm
to washington, it's an advantage to republicans. where democrats have their clearest advantage in this election is on culture and it's on whether we are comfortable with the diversity and candidate of the cultural and demographic change we are living through. and that is what she identified with. and also identified as the principle contrast with trump. and i think it is the biggest problem he faces going forward as this past week has demonstrate. against the change. shaping modern america. >> reinterpreted his slogan which is make america great again. and it is true, you talk to people about that, and they essentially say, what america is talking about, is it the '50s, '60s, when things weren't great for people. she had the other line, to be great, we can't be small. i do think democrats make this sort of an exthat sensual question about america, about who gets into america.
7:50 pm
i think they're on pretty -- >> there are two critiques of trump, we saw the first time thursday which is that she's dangerous because he's too impulsive, too temperamental to be the commander in chief and have the grave and mortal power that the president has and the second is the point that ron just made. which is he's too divisive and that she is stronger together. i think you're going to hear this over and over again. >> let's go to our -- >> yeah. what did you think? >> i think her presences of trump were entirely off base and she needs to be careful because americans got the soaring rhetoric eight years ago, and the teleprompter, nicely woven speeches, but americans sent a very clear message in both parties in this election that they want someone who's outside and distrustful of washington. they want someone who's off the cuff, that's why bernie sanders has done so well, that's why donald trump has done so well. that's going to be her real challenge. it was a great speech again, i
7:51 pm
commend her for being the first female nominee. at the end of the day, there's anger in an electorate that shouldn't be underestimated. >> i love the speech of course because i love the person that gave the speech. i think she's a perfect messenger for the speech she gave tonight. a very inclusive speech. a speech that said to most person americans, if not all americans there's a slither of opportunity for those who think they're on the outskirts of hope. she will be the president who will bring people into that circle. she will enlarge it because we all, we can all be part of it. i love the speech. i thought it was great and looking forward to bernie sanders' speech later so i can get two for one. >> look, i thought it was a great speech. i think she's getting very comfortable with this role -- >> is she a better candidate than she was? >> i give credit to bernie sanders for that. i mean, she started off this race as, you know, the inevitable nominee. and bernie sanders gave her a run for her money. and she made mistakes early on
7:52 pm
and she went a little less early on, more or less than she had wanted to. and it made her a better candidate. it only makes herbert when she's fighting. i also want to the comment on when she spoke about her mother. i really do think that this is a better sweet moment because her mother has always been a great inspiration to her. ever since obviously when she was a little girl, but her mother lived with her when she was in arkansas, she lived with her when she was in the white house, she lived her with here in washington when she was senator, and for her mother not to be here tonight i think is really, it's a big void for her. >> you're right. i'm thinking of that gifted. she's not barack obama. she appealed very directly and
7:53 pm
honestly to sanders voters. especially on pop list economics where she is comfortable. and they want to hear that. and she paid them the respect and senator sanders himself the respect that he has earned. that's an important first step. second, he stuck the knife in donald trump the way that president obama does. usually, you know, hillary just likes to hit. the president likes to wield a scalpel. hillary's been studying his method. and this will last, this line, to be great, we can't be small. so now she's diminished trump who wants to pose as the great man. he was a very effective way to ridicule him, and she mocked him for telling us how great he really is. again, she's piercing that ego. and the third thing she did was offer a unifying theme for moderates. you know, as a strategist, you want to get the left. also there's a lot, a lot of republicans very uncomfortable with donald trump. they tend to be socially
7:54 pm
moderate, and she reached out to them. all of that inclusiveness, she literally needs that to win and to govern. and i think this will be a unifying theme for her the way i think kaylee you mentioned earlier, donald trump talks about america first i think hillary's going to talk about stronger together. >> the forward bat was a new element, and important. to me, if you look at, there are very few 32-year-old hispanic lawyers and 35-year-old african americans who say there is some idealized point in american history they are trying to get back to again. when donald trump talks about again, there is a group that feels they have been economically and culturally eclipsed. the problem he's got is the majority that is the majority of electorate. there are other grounds, people are looking for change in washington, and they see him as much likely to bring it.
7:55 pm
he is defined primarily as the embodiment of cultural, white cultural backlash. and this week really under -- when you have the speaker of the house, of the same party in an unprecedented moment saying it's the textbook definition of a racist comment, you can see the box that you are in, and that he will have to figure out a way out of. >> i want to go quickly over to will for property jex. >> thanks very much, anderson. we have a projection right now. hillary clinton we project is the winner of the new mexico democratic presidential primary. this is her second win of the night. we projected much earlier that she is the winner in new jersey. let's look at some other states right now. she's having a very good night, key race alert, we have hillary clinton is ahead right now in two important states, let's put them up on the board right there. she's ahead, montana, 25% of the vote is in. she's got 50.7% to bernie sanders 44.it % in south dakota, hillary clinton subpoena ahead
7:56 pm
with 85% of the vote and 51.3% bernie sanders 48.7%. i should point out by the way, that donald trump with no opposition is the winner in montana. he wins the republican presidential primary, montana, republican presidential primary, donald trump is the winner of that. in about four minutes, the biggest prize of the night, that'll be california. we'll have coverage of that once those numbers start coming in. we'll update you on that, remember 145 convention delegates are at stake in california. let's go over to john king over at the magic wall. it's shaping up pretty good night, very good night i should point out for hillary clinton so far, bernie sanders did win the north dakota caucus. >> at the moment there is absolutely no doubt based on what we're seeing in the results. even if some of the states turn, she will get a majority of the pledged delegates unless bernie sanders wins with 90 something percent in the state of california. look at this right now, the
7:57 pm
bernie sanders, the whole argument was finish strong. say i'm ut candidate with momentum at the end of the race, try to flip those super delegates. let's go through them. thumping by hillary clinton, we're almost done counting in the state of new jersey, that's a shellacking, big win for secretary clinton. new mexico, 52 to 45 in the count now up to 92%. again, a very impressive. in this state, very much with her campaign wanted senator sanders was hoping to pull that out of surprise. this is where it gets surprising and for the sanders campaign, very disappointing. 85% of the vote in, this one could still swing. there are places if you want to look out here, come out here to see, only 36% of the vote. pentington county, senator sanders ahead. there is a possibility some could come back there. if you come over here, a much larger county where sioux falls is, still half the vote to come in.
7:58 pm
secretary clinton continues to track there. this is a close race in south dakota, this is a state sanders needed, and she's leading, secretary clinton in, she has the foblt win in south dakota. we move over to here, wolf, the montana count is coming in fast and very close race here. again, this was a place senator sanders was expecting to come in and win big. you see the two-point lead. we'll watch that one. this is not what they wanted, and this is just the exclamation point the clinton campaign wanted. this is the boxing match, she wins new jersey, she wins new mexico, she's competitive in these two fights that are still going on. and now we're waiting for the polls to close in just over a minl in the biggest prize of all, both campaigns expect this to be close,ly tell you the campaigns have had some access to the mail ballot information, and inside the clinton campaign, wolf, they're confident in a couple of hours when we're done counting, they're going to win california as well. if that's the case, one, two, that's the big one they want. if they can get one of these as well, they think that that
7:59 pm
senator sanders considers what to do over the next couple of days with, he needed to finish strong, if secretary clinton wins four or five of the six, that's a huge deal. >> you said earlier, new jersey gain, new mexico set and california could potentially be a match. let's talk about california -- >> and if these hold, this is a huge bonus. look at this region of the country and how good its been to senator sanders, they're small states. there are not a lot of delegates there. in charge of closing the campaign and adding icing to the cake, they hold that would be very important for the clinton campaign. >> south dakota and montana. let's take a look at california. eight years ago. >> 51-43, important win for senator clinton. the backbone of the victory was down here, by far, by far the largest slice of the vote, 26% plus of the population is los angeles county. the city of los angeles, the suburbs around it. this is the biggest, most important section of the state when it comes to the craft.
8:00 pm
it's a place where secretary clinton hopes to have senator sanders camping out here for the last two weeks. he is hoping that he drives turnout at the end and gets the victory. it's the only question we have left tonight. secretary clinton will clench the nomination, can sanders get the california trophy he so desperately wants? >> all right john, thanks very much. let's get a key race alert. the polls are closed in california, the biggest prize of the night and it's too early to call for us in california, if you're hillary clinton and bernie sanders, we'll wait for the numbers to start coming in. the votes to start coming in. they'll be coming in shortly. 475, 475 delegates at stake in california. in montana right now, the polls closed an hour ago, 32% of the vote is in, hillary clinton has a slight lead over bernie sanders in montana, 148.6%, 46.7%, about a third of the vote is in in montana. in south dakota, a lot more of the vote is in, 87% of the vote is in, hillary clinton has a lead over bernie sanders in south dakota
