8:07 am
all of the campaigns are really closely watching the delegate numbers. as we head toward what many think could be a contested or brock brokered convention. >> this is the big number. 1237. the number of delegates a candidate needs to clinch. donald trump with 378. you can see cruz, roub yeo trailing behind. let's look at the big map. these are states up for grabs. ten days over the next ten days, nine states, including ohio, 66 delegates in that state. michigan, florida, if cruz and rubio want to win this, they have to start winning big. and hillary clinton, on the democratic icic side working hard. she has a commanding lead for the delegates coming up for her, too, dan. >> thank you. let's get more from george. >> hey, dan.
8:08 am
a two-man race? >> here's what we know. a split decision with donald trump for cruz. their only home is being spoil nrs their home states to take this to a brokered convention. ted cruz has a slight chance to get to the 1237. donald trump, some what better. as long as kasich and rubio stay in, it will be awhile before we get to the two-man race. >> what do you think the results last night tell us about what success, if any, the mitt romney and stop trump movement is having at this point. >> a couple of things. if you look at all the states last night, donald trump underperformed his polls. going into this weekend. most of them taken before the debate, before mitt romney came out. he overperformed on the early vote. those votes cast before the
8:09 am
attack on thursday. so there are some signs that there's been some impact over this week. the other point you have to look at, when you look at the states yesterday. kansas, maine, those were closed primaryies primaries. only republicans were allowed to vote. not independents. a lot of donald trump's strengths has been with independents. >> it's interesting you say this, because the conventional wisdom, at least in some quarters, has been, mitt romney, john mccain, coming out against trump, will only make trump supporters support him more. >> it could lock in the 30 to 35% that have been supporting him all the way. the question is, has the momentum he had been stalled? i think there are at least some signs of that from yesterday's voting. >> george stephanopoulos. fascinating as always. we love having you on. george will go one on one with both john kasich and bernie sanders. later this morning on "this week." right here on abc. >> looking forward to that. we want to turn now to the nasty supersoaker blasting

8:13 am
at this time, absolutely still more questions than answers. i want to be clear. this was a study appearing in "the new england journal of medicine." followed 88 pregnant women in brazil. most of them had symptoms and went on to test positive. the findings were concerning. two suffered first trimester miscarriages. two suffered third trimester fetal death. and 29% of those women who had ultrasounds had abnormalities on the ultrasound that showed the fetal brain was being affected. this study indicated zika can affect women in all stages of pregnancy. it suggested there is a compromised function of the placenta, which then affects the fetus. we need to emphasize, this is association, observation. we haven't proven cause and effect. but this was a big study. >> devastating for those families. doctors, right now, the advice
8:14 am
worried you have been exposed, you should have ultrasounds. what would a doctor like you be looking for? >> deeper dive on those. when we do ultrasounds in pregnancy, we're not looking at one point in time. we're doing that, making observations. we're following that fetus over time to compare changes. we're looking at the size of the baby with respect to the dates that the mom is in her pregnancy and we're seeing if the baby stays along the growth curve. we're measuring the circumference of the fetal head. we're doing doppler studies that look at the umbilical blood flow and the flow in the baby's brain. we're looking for an indication is that fetus okay. >> we're lucky to have your guidance on a story affecting a lot of people. thank you. for the other headlines, to ron. >> hey, good morning to you, dan and cecilia. good morning, everyone. north carolina, a speeding train racing down the track at a group of people walking along a railroad bridge. four adults and a child were on the bridge. in winston salem.
