A clean sweep for Donald Trump by huge margins and by Hillary Clinton, a big victory as well. As of tonight, these two candidates are now the prohibited favorites to be their parties' nominees. Tonight at trump tower, Donald Trump was in such a great mood, he even thanksed the people he most loves to hate. I want to thank the media. They've covered me very fair for the last two hours. In all five states, he trounsed the competition. Maryland and Connecticut and Pennsylvania, I mean the whole thing. In every state, getting more than 50% of the vote.

An America where we lift each other up instead of tearing each other down. Reporter: Both of them tonight, all but dismissing their opponents, even though their opponents remain in the race.

For the first time in a very long time I'm actually considering not voting. Reporter: Because you don't like the candidates? Because I don't think either candidate would make a great choice.

Reporter: Cruz agreed to sit out Oregon and New Mexico. We're focusing our energy on the state of Indiana. And governor kasich is focusing his attentions elsewhere. Where did you come up with a scam like that? Saw it in a movie once. Sgl Reporter: It has all the hallmarks of a movie. Not "Turner and hooch". Maybe it's "Thelma and Louise."

In this campaign, it's important that people not just give speeches and get everybody riled up. You need to ask them what are you going to do and how are you going to do it? Don't just give me the rhetoric and the demagoguery. Reporter: Her closing add also positions her as a nu nurturing alternative to the balm bash on the republican side. Tonight, that imagery of America hugging it out, transform under to a new campaign slogan for cli Clinton. We're going to families are supported, streets are safe and communities are strong and where love trumps hate. Reporter: Because one person she's not quite ready to hug it out with, Bernie sanders.
