3:30 am
welcome to the "cbs overnight news." i'm jeff glor. five states in the northeast hold primaries tomorrow. democrats and republicans will vote in connecticut, rhode island, delaware, maryland and pennsylvania. a total of 556 delegates are up for grabs. our new battleground tracker poll shows front-runner donald trump far ahead in pennsylvania. the biggest prize of the night. trump at 49%, followed by texas senator ted cruz at 26%, and ohio governor john kasich with 22%. kasich appeared on face the nation to discuss upcoming primary battles and his decision to start vetting possible runningmates. >> the club for growth is running an ad they say because
3:31 am
you have so few delegates. that a vote for you is really a vote for donald trump. what's your response to that ad? >> first of all, they're working a -- aggressively against me. because they're for somebody else. secondly, a vote for cruz or trump is frankly a vote for hillary clinton. i have new numbers out of new hampshire. let me tell you -- hillary is at 50. trump at 31. hillary at 48. cruz at 34. and then the third match up -- hillary is at 36. john kasich is at 50. what is really amazing. they surveyed voters in new hampshire who voted in the republican primary which trump won where i finished second to. day, according to this poll, i lead donald trump 26-22. look, i am the only one can defeat hillary clinton consistently in 15 national polls. even electoral college shows the same thing. so, look, at the end of it all i think when we are at convention,
3:32 am
the delegates are going to want to know -- who can beat hillary? if we don't beat hillary, we lose the supreme court, united states senate, state, local races where we are heading. these guys don't have enough time to turn around super high negatives. >> making electability argument in 1964, the pennsylvania governor made the same argument against barry goldwater. governor scranton said i'm more electable. the delegates didn't listen. why will they listen now? >> if they look at history. goldwater got smoked. we lost everything. that's why. i think delegates are smart when it comes to picking somebody who can win in the fall. look, we're picking up delegates. my message is being heard. i am emerging. we are getting big crowds here in, in rhode island. huge turnout today. we just keep putting one foot in front of the other.
3:33 am
you know the message of growth of opportunity of bringing people together this is what needs to be heard. not this negative, message of gloom, and doom, and you know "the washington post" said the reason kasich doesn't do so well because he is not apocalyptic candidate. yeah, i don't think the apocalypse is coming next week. i think we can straighten this country out i am going to keep talking. >> you are competing in the delegate conversation with donald trump, and his campaign manager said this, this week to some republicans. quote, he gets it. the negatives are going to come down. the image is going to change. what is your reaction to that? >> will i don't want any body to have negatives. i can tell you after my first year as governor. i was one of the most unpopular governors, maybe the most unpopular governor in the country. it takes a long time to change negatives. people have to see that you are actually being fruitful in your work. what happened with me. when people started getting work. balancing budgets and reaching
3:34 am
out it changed. you can't turn negatives around overnight. not possible to do because when you create that, that negative impression in people, you just can't talk your way out of it unfortunately for those that have high negatives. >> let me ask you about the convention coming up. republican convention. there are reports that you have been vetting runningmates. that you might announce one as early as june. what can you tell us about that? >> well we have some old hands now who are beginning to do that. these things come quickly. and you don't want to have yourself in a position of where you got to pick somebody out of a hat. i have skilled hands who are, beginning now to take a look and figure out who would really fit. and you know it's just starting. so there isn't a lot to report. >> i could imagine though, john kasich making his argument to delegates. might say here's the ticket not. just john kasich. what the ticket may look like. >> yeah, i think that's interesting. >> might you do that? >> it might be. might be. it's possible. i don't run the campaign. i'm just a candidate. okay. i know what is going on. i had to prove that we were going to start vetting. these are things you talk about as a group i will have my strong opinions of it at some point.
3:35 am
we are at the preliminary stage. yeah, it is always possible. reagan tried to do that in 1976. didn't win. >> didn't work out so well for him. >> yeah. didn't work out later. did work out later the he influenced the country. there is something to be said for that. >> thank you, governor. we will end it right there. >> all right. thank you. >> on the democratic side. bernie sanders looking for new momentum. our battleground tracker in pennsylvania shows hillary clinton leading sanders by eight points. sanders discussed his campaign with john dickerson on "face the nation." >> senator, i want to ask -- hillary clinton has more votes and delegates. is your view that democrats want to vote for you but there is something rig add but the system
3:36 am
keeping that from happening? >> no, john, we started the campaign 60 points behind secretary clinton. in the last couple weeks, a little bit, we have come in, in an enormous way. we are running against the most powerful political organization in the united states of america. i am very proud of the campaign that we have run. we have won 16 states right now. in almost all of the contests we win, the younger people, by that i mean not just kids, but you, know people, 45 years of age or under. i think the ideas we are talking about are what the american people and people in the democratic party want to hear. we are the future of the democratic party. so i am very proud of where we are and we look forward to fighting this out through california. >> one of the issues you talked about so much is income of inequality. and pr did analysis and found in places where income of inequality was high, hillary clinton was winning in those places you. were asked about this on meet the press. you said poor people don't vote. in states like ohio, florida, new york, michigan which you won.
3:37 am
than $30,000 ended up voting more for hillary clinton. that doesn't seem to be the case. >> well for a start. one of the challenges we have as a nation is that we have one of the lowest voter turnouts in general of any major country on earth. 63% of the american people didn't vote. those numbers were worse for young people and for low income people. i believe that, what we are trying to do in this campaign, john, with some success, is bring people into the political process. and obviously we, have got to do better. but i would hope that -- if i am the nominee, that on election day you are going to see a very, very large voter turnout. and if that is the case, i think think we can change the dynamics of american politics, so it is not just big money interests, who help elect candidates through, throughout ray just campaign contributions, but what we have is a vibrant democracy where all people participate. >> senator sanders, thk

3:43 am
then of course it is truly astonishing. objectively, there is a lot of work to be done on this book. >> when shakespeare was 16, until around the age of 13, he attended king edward vi grammar school in stratford. more than 400 years later the school is still in use. >> he would ave learned latin, greek. a little bit of rhetoric. >> bennett carr its head master. all the ingredients what made shakespeare shakespeare. >> absolutely. >> came from -- >> this very room. >> reporter: in spite of images of shakespeare around, especially in stratford, what we think he looked like, is largely based on this likeness in the ÷ first folio, the first compilation of shakespeare's plays published in 1623, seven years after his death. >> it really is the truest portrait we know that survives of him. >> reporter: heather wolf is curator of manuscripts at folger
3:44 am

3:45 am
george has yet to read an argument that takes our best example seriously. >> kolleman and wexler at their own expense, published a book detailing their evidence. they digitized the alviary page by page and put it online. so skeptics can study it. they can only trace the ownership back to the mid 1800s. there is no dna or csi magic to prove or disprove their claim. only databases that can tell whether these notes were common place phrases or unique to shakespeare. >> here, okay. there it is. >> but there its this. >> you see he is imitating this capital w. >> we see it elsewhere. see it with the s with shuffled. >> we see it three times with the s. >> five times with the w. >> and with no other letter. >> w and s.
3:46 am
because it was william shakespeare's book? or just coincidence? >> in it is. but i feel like thereis just too much there. >> we are going down into the vault which is where we keep all of our books and manuscripts. >> reporter: soon the alviary will come through the door. the folger shakespeare library agreed to accept it on loan. here, scholars will be able to see it, touch it. and compare it to other books from the period. >> this is an extreme example of a dictionary that came out in 1572. >> it's got writing everywhere. >> yeah. >> as for koppelman and wexler. who ever heard of book sellers thrilled not to sell a book? >> if some one offered us a price, right now, said you have to -- find a way to cancel your loan agreement with the folger i will write you such and such a check. that would not work for us. >> we are confident the work we have done. we would like to see it validated. ♪ ♪ >> reporter: validation at best
