ted cruz finishing a distant third. the criticism of new york values seeming to hurt him. trump's win big enough to nearly sweep the delegates and improve his chances of avoiding a contested convention. >> hillary clinton's victory over bernie sanders was not quite as large but still a resounding double digit win for her. as expected, she padded her already sizable lead in delegates to inch closer to her party's nomination. >> this morning, both races are quickly shifting to the next major battlegrounds. five states that are up for grabs next tuesday, including pennsylvania, a key state for trump. nbc national correspondent peter alexander is in philadelphia with more on last night's results and what's ahead. peter, good morning. >> reporter: hey, matt, savannah, good morning to you. these were overwhelming wins for hillary clinton and donald trump. the two front runners regaining the math and the momentum, looking polished and presidential during their remarks. now looking ahead. ♪ new york new york

>> now, my friends, onward to victory. >> reporter: earlier, mocking trump's complaints that the delegate system is unfair. >> donald trump's campaign does not know how to organize on the grassroots. i cannot help that the donald trump campaign does not seem capable of running a lemonade stand. >> thank you, thank you. >> reporter: john kasich finishing second, still hoping to step into the ring at a contested convention in cleveland. hillary clinton with renewed confidence. >> the race for the democratic nomination is in the homestretch and victory is in sight. >> reporter: after a bruising battle, an olive branch. >> to all the people who supported senator sanders, i believe there is much more that unites us than divides us. >> reporter: clinton, largely pivoting to the general election, lumping the gop contenders into one pile. >> donald trump and ted cruz are pushing a vision for america that's divisive and, frankly,
dangerous. >> reporter: for bernie sanders, a bitter defeat after this bold prediction a week ago. >> we will win a major victory here in new york next tuesday. >> reporter: changing his tone on election night. >> we're going to do just fine tonight in new york. >> reporter: overnight, the challenger refusing to give up. >> there are five primaries next week. we think we're going to do well. >> reporter: back live outside now independence hall in philadelphia, pennsylvania. one of the five states voting next week. numbers we found last night during the exit polls, 66% of new york democrats say the bitter campaign has energized their party. 59% of new york republicans say it has divided theirs. matt and savannah? >> peter alexander in philadelphia. thank you. >> chuck todd is nbc's political
director and moderator of "meet the press" and mike murphy is a political analyst and former director of jeb bush's super pac rooi right to rise. good morning. >> morning. >> we've seen something of a new incarnation of donald trump in the last couple weeks. certainly, last night, the victory speech was more moderate in tone. he's hiring real professionals, in terms of organization for his staff. we don't see as much of the name calling. is he now at a point where he can rally some of the reluctant republicans behind him? >> i don't know if he's at the point they're going to rally behind him, but he may stop the bleeding and he may at least get the -- get anybody thinking about joining the stop trump movement to give a pause. because for -- look. what he did post-wisconsin, the day after wisconsin, there was a lot of people declaring, maybe the stop trump movement is real. in 13 days, he turned his campaign around and put it back on the path to the nomination. >> let's talk more about the stop trump movement. you know a little bit about that. okay? there's a lot of criticism. they simply didn't show up in new york. did they decide, mike, that it
was already lost to them? if not now, where? where are they going to take a stand? >> my guess is they were intimidated by trump's hometown support. i think they had a chance in new york. he was able to run up the score here. the question is now for the new civilized trump campaign cannot make mistakes and run the table forward, and will stop trump come back to life, engage now and in indiana in two weeks? which could be pivotal. >> mike, what does this say about ted cruz as the official alternative to donald trump? he came in third last night. >> yeah, no. cruz had a bad night. i mean, kasich swept the upper west side of manhattan. he has bragging rights. cruz isn't built to win this region. the cruz campaign and the kasich campaign have the same interests but they don't seem to cooperate, which is to not let trump get to 1,200 or more delegates. and try to stop him in an open convention. >> it's got to be a hard cam pane to run if you're cruz or kasich. it's not about energy or inspiration for cruz and kasich,
it's about hanging around. >> it's negative. the waiting for indiana thing is ridiculous. >> let's talk about hillary clinton. obviously, a resounding victory, for her last night. 16-point win over bernie sanders. if you're bernie sanders waking up this morning for breakfast, you should be ordering, coffee, toast and a side of reality. is he the kind of guy, know, who knows when the game is over? >> i don't know. depends. if he got into the race the way a lot of people think he did, which is to be relevant, to lead a movement, to say, hey, my wing of the democratic party is a rising wing. you need to take notice. if he looks at the playing field and says, hey, i've done a lot here, i pushed hillary clinton. i may lose the nomination but win the idealogical war. if that's how he gets up this morning, that's a healthy place to be. >> he has kind of asymmetrical power. i don't think sanders can win the nomination, but he owns voters under 30. be if they don't show up in the general election, and they're a fickle group when it comes to
turnout, it is a huge problem for her. she has to push him off the stage without putting on a darth vader helmet. tricky, tricky thing. >> do you think it'll be helpful to republicans in the general? >> yeah. i think the more that she grinds on him, the kind of push him out of the race, there could be a help for us in the general election. the main thing as a republican, how with either of our leading candidates can we win a general election? it'll be hard. >> what's the biggest state to watch next week? >> pennsylvania. it's the largest one. look. connecticut is a distant second, if you're going to stop trump -- or clinton. connecticut is a fickle state. >> i disagree with chuck on indiana. put indiana and nebraska and maine, you have almost as many delegates as new york. if trump wins indiana, i think he'll be the nominee. >> what's going to happen next week, though? that's the problem. >> two thirds of the
pennsylvania delegates are n knotnot very sticky. they can do what they want. if trump can run up the score, the pressure on him, at least on the first ballot, which is everything for trump, will be hard. run it up there. maryland, which is a state trump has polled badly, i'll be watching to see if he gets a boost off yesterday. >> good to have you here. >> thanks. >> don't forget. donald trump will be with us exclues ily tomorrow morning for a live town hall on the plaza. we'd like your questions for use. #trump today. other news. houston is bracing for more rain this morning as the city deals with this week's unprecedented flooding. janet shamlian is there. just north of houston. janet, good morning. >> reporter: savannah, good morning to you. cyprsigcypress creek is overflo into this neighborhood and dozens of homes. what they don't need, the forecast is calling for another drenching later today. this morning, a new danger in flood-weary houston. cyprus creek bulging beyond its banks, spilling into hundreds of homes. >> we thought we were okay.
last night we went to bed and the water receded. there was no rain. and then we wake up and it's at our front door. >> reporter: then it was inside. the family packed up and left the only way they could. on an airboat, manned by sheriff's deputies maneuvering through neighborhoods that look like this. we joined them as they answered call after call. it's non-stop, life-saving work. for some, the reality of leaving home, hitting hard. >> we're just kind of stuck. i don't really know what to do. kind of going through the motions right now. >> reporter: another rescue at a senior center. dozens of elderly in wheelchairs taken to drier ground. >> it's an awesome amount of water. more than i've seen in my career. >> reporter: more than 1,000 houses flooded, $5 billion in damage and this heartbreaking statistic. at least seven people died in the floods, including a mom of three who became trapped in her car. >> she called me and told me

drinking water while government officials insisted it was safe. later on today, the authority general in michigan is set to announce criminal charges related to the crisis. >> reporter: today, a significant announcement in the investigation of flint's water crisis. a government official confirming to nbc news that criminal chll be announced later today. law enforcement sources tell our affiliate wdiv as many as three people could be named by michigan's attorney general. two from the state's department of environmental quality and one flint city official. flint is still reeling from a crisis that exposed thousands of city residents to lead after corrosive water damaged the city's pipes causing the lead to leech into the drinking water. >> now, we don't know what the future holds for us and our kids. so it needs to be criminal charges. someone needs to be held accountable for what has taken place. >> reporter: today's announcement comes just days after governor rick snyder
introduced reforms to protect the public, including annual testing for lead and copper and penalties for those who violate state rules. >> we all failed the families of flint. >> reporter: the governor under fire for his administration's response testified on capitol hill last month. but his words were at odds with the chants of flint residents who bust in to protest the hearing. now hoping to reassure residents, governor snyder has pledged to drink the city's filtered tap water for the next 30 days. in a facebook post, snyder says he hopes to alleviate mistrust by putting words to action. >> the governor did have a victory in court on tuesday. a u.s. district judge threw out a class action lawsuit aimed at both city and state officials. as far as that criminal investigation, even with today's announcement, it's still ongoing. matt? >> stephanie gosk in flint. thank you. the death toll from the massive earthquake in ecuador now tops 500 people. it's been four days since the

angry that he's not supporting a bill that would allow them to file suit against the saudis, claiming damages. the president saying such a law would open americans abroad, servicemen and women, diplomats to retaliation. some 9/11 families are also pushing the administration to declassify still secret portions of the 9/11 congressional investigation of those attacks. the administration saying intelligence agencies are reviewing whether to declassify the information. families and some members of congress believe there might be information there being kept secret implicating the saudi government. through this all, the administration emphasizes previous investigations said there have been no connections between the saudi government and the events of 9/11. through all that, also on the agenda, issues involving isis and the fight against terrorism. the president, we believe, will push the saudis to do more, something they've been reluctant to do in the past. as the united states ramps up its efforts against terrorism in the middle east. finally, those issues are going to be somewhat uncomfortable here but the president will move on tomorrow to a much more enjoyable meeting, perhaps.

they have little rods that collect pollen and measure the amount of pollen on there. you can't guess ahead of time, for sure. it's the warmest year-to-date, ever, so we predict because of the warm weather that plants don't go so dormant. depending on what part of the country you're on, you'll get bad problems with trees right now and slowly over the later spring, it'll move to grasses. and then by the end of the summer, weeds all over the place. >> tree pollen as you mention now. let's talk about ways to keep it off you. it's not easy. >> but it's doable. number one trick, literally cover yourself up. you can have broad rimmed hat. this would look good on al roker. think he'd wear this? >> probably would. >> fashion glasses. >> so even with blowing wind, it keeps it out of your eyes. >> yeah. and keep the windows closed when you travel around. you can be smart, especially if you know the season will have a lot of pollen, in preventing it from getting near you. >> so once it gets on you, get it off of you?
>> a couple obvious ideas. women don't think about their hair and the fact it's a magnet for pollen. never go to bed at night with pollen in your hair because you're basting your face in it all night. wipe your eyes. they had pollen and allergies 2,000 years ago. pour this over your nose. warm water and salt, and wash out your sinuses. you brush your teeth, right? wash your nose out. >> get it off your sheets and curtains if you possibly can. with the windows open, that's where it settles, as well. >> once a week. audit your home. you have to wash your sheets in warm water. take the clothes off when you get home. make sure you wash them once a week. also look for mold. it's a big, confusing factor. it can also give you allergies on top of the seasonal allergies. >> let's talk about remedies. over-the-counter medications, are you a fan? >> big fan but you have to take them early.
half hour before you expect symptoms, take the nasal sprays or antihistamines. if you go to the allergist and have a shot or tablets, 80%, 90% success rates. you have to do it ahead of time. make the visit. >> i'm not going to do a commercial for a particular brand. i take one pill over the counter every single morning and it's been great, even though i have allergies i haven't felt it this year. >> here's a handkerchief, just in case. >> appreciate it. dr. oz, thank you. catch his show weekdays, check your local listings. up next, a heart-stopping stunt involving that guy and a race car. it's going to leave you speechless. plus, they're a dynamic duo. why don't tina fey and amy poehler work together more often? you might be surprised about what tina has to say about that. you might be surprised what your kids say about the technology they're using and why

in psyhycology today. late sleepers are more likely to be innovative and progressive thinkers because they're going against the body's natural inclination to go to sleep around 11:00 and wake up account -- about 7:00. >> you're a night owl, right? >> i am. i guess the point is, sleep at some point is good. that's ariana huffington's push, as well. at some point, you have to get it? >> get the seven hours. >> i think it's the idea that people have more creative jobs perhaps. they're the ones, the hours are driving that sleep schedule anyway. >> curious, we get up in the neighborhood at 4:00 on a weekd weekday. what time do you get up on the weekend? >> i sleep in until 6:00. >> i'm losing it at 7:00. >> 8:00. kids, go watch cartoons. >> you get up at 5:00, right? >> 5:15. >> without anlarm a clock, just natural? >> yeah. although, i like the morning on

device. and tina fey said a tv show with amy poehler isn't in the cards. when we thought we were over with the johnny depp doggate controversy, a lot of people are weighing in. the apology video he and his wife amber heard seemed to be forced into for the australian authorities. now, the country's deputy prime minister is offering his review of the performance. barnby said depp looked like he was auditioning for the "godfather." also offered this advice, do it with gusto, mate. a bit of gusto. come on, rise to the camera. that was my australian accent. >> i think that was the point. >> this is not to make light of it, but they were so -- just get through it. whatever. >> raise the camera up, too. >> what an angle. up the nose. >> they still got the light
sentence. without having the convincing apology. next to one of our favorite duos, tina fey and amy poehler, whether they're hosting "snl" or starring in movies. they're asked, why don't you do tv shows together? great question. tina says it probably won't happen. at the tribeca film festival, she said, we're both alphas. it works in short spurts, but i don't know if it would make a real dynasty. >> i'd love to see it though. >> i know. to thine own self be >> i wonder why we know that. >> as we all hold our breath. moving on. this will make you smile today. chrissy teigen sharing the first photo of her newborn baby. lulu with hubby john legend. the baby five days. that's a five-day picture after giving birth.

after this. the next two days, we're talking about upwards of three to four inches of rain, just to the east of houston, on up into central louisiana. just not great news. then as you can see, it continues to move east. this actually, this wet weather starts to make its way thursday into the ohio river valley, lower mississippi river valley. and by friday, it's actually along the eastern seaboard. heaviest rain will be right in the mid-atlantic. but there will be pretty good downpours in the new york city we have sunshine and nice weather all across the bay area and a chilly start. following a cool start, we will have a lot of sunshine and get ready for a very nice afternoon. it's now 58 degrees in san francisco and the tri-valley with a high today up to 83 degrees in the tri-valley. san francisco 72 degrees. north bay more of the same. a few clouds mixing in as a weak storm system passes farther to the north. low 80s for the peninsula and the south bay with a light

>> good morning. >> a lot of parents go, that is a lot of time on social media and checking the device. what are we not understanding from teens and tweens? >> this is a good thing and a bad thing. it's unchartered territory for all of us. i think what the tweens and the teens want us to know is this is how their life is. they are the first generation all electronic. this is how their relationships are, through the phones and the computers. >> we talked with tweens who shared some of their stresses about social media and the like. take a listen. >> my friends have made plans and they've posted it on social media, and i find out through that. it really makes me upset. >> if i look at their instagram posts, i'll see what they're doing. sometimes, they don't text me about it. >> one time, my friend sent me a picture, and they were posting it on social media apps about a birthday party. i felt really left out. >> it's kind of this new spin on something that lots of tweens have felt over the ages, being left out. as a parent, you've got a few tips.
one of them is take some time out. >> right. we as adults are also on a lot of social media and on our devices a lot. we want to model what it looks like, and we want to really set limits for the tweens so they can walk away and not be so involved and invested that they respond inappropriately, act out of the wrong urge. >> it's important to know what your tween can handle. they're still little. >> they are still little. and some 'tweens really aren't ready. though they want it, you as a parent know what they're ready for. trust that. >> finally, learn it with them. >> learn it with them. the apps are changing all the time. you don't know what they're doing. have them teach you. i sit in my office and have the kids that see me teach me to use the apps all the time. you learn what they're doing and what they know. that's really helpful. >> let's get the teen perspective. roll some tape. >> everything i do practically resolves around it. that's how we communicate with our friends and teachers and get our work done. that's how our life is. >> i use it too often and it distracts me with my schoolwork.
>> couldn't keep my grades up without it. i probably would have no plans with my friends. >> i feel like everything i do, like sadly, is based over a computer or through my phone. >> it's so hard to communicate with my friends if i can't text them. >> i would not pick up the phone to call a friend and have a conversation. >> this is now what people do, and this is how we communicate. >> this is the new normal. number one tip for teens, be knowledgeable. >> right. be knowledgeable about what they're doing, who they're talking with, what apps they're using. they'll be ahead of you, try to stay current. >> let them know, you'll watch what they do online. >> and you want to be able to trust them. that's also important. >> don't stop talking. >> we think that teens know it all. they don't know how much they're on. if you ask them, they'd probably tell you less than they are. keep the conversation open. keep that communication going. >> finally, getting out from behind the screens. we want to relate as humans still. >> so hard. we don't know if we're putting them at a disservice by staying behind the screens. find time to get out from behind it.

into another trailer that was there earlier this morning on the opposite side of the freeway. now the southbound lanes are clear, but look how much it's jammed. from san leandro in towards union city. the northbound side still has two lanes blocked and that's a distraction because they're trying to remove that cab you showed from the roadway, so that's a big issue. both directions, fremont, union city and hayward are all affected. the south bay really has seen traffic kick in and so is the peninsula, so slowing through palo alto and parts of 101. no drama toward the bay bridge, but it's still backed up. back to you. >> very bad situation there, mike. thank you very much. we'll have more updates coming up in a half hour.
