Transcript for 2016 Presidential Race: Delegate Count
ABC's Jon Karl joins us with the race on those all-important delegates and, Jon, let's start with the democrats. The results yesterday, how does that change the race? Well, robin, a huge night for Hillary Clinton. She won four of the five states, still waiting on Missouri and that means she won last night the lion's share of the delegates. Look at this, 408 delegates to just 237 for Bernie sanders. Where does it leave the race now?

The folk if they were to take out trump are a huge problem. The trump voters, many won't vote for a non-trump candidate. One thing that is fascinating, contested convention we have not seen a second ballot and two things have changed. One, the voters are now involved. No primary the last time we had a contested convention and, two, technology and TV. A contested convention in this convention is going to be the most unique thing we've ever seen. Donald Trump, if he has the lead and they take it away for him disaster for the party. It would be a disaster in Cleveland. I think that basically we're at the precipice of the republican party being broken already. Hillary Clinton wrapped this up? Yes.
