tonight, when is a deal not a deal online? three words to watch out for. it's actually costing you money. good evening. as we come on the air in the west tonight and it's great to have you with us on another crucial night for american voters. the race for the white house. tonight, voting in four states. the first results now coming in. the polls now closed in mississippi and in michigan. in mississippi tonight, based on analysis of the vote, abc news now projecting that donald trump will win the republican primary there. on the democratic side, based on exit polls, abc news projecting hillary clinton takes the win in mississippi. in michigan tonight, a second verdictry for trump this evening. based on analysis of the vote, abc projecting he may win the republican primary there. but look at this. the raw vote still coming in on the democratic side. too early to make a projection. 38% of expected votes reported. look how close the race is.
of course, there in michigan tonight, a major contest on both sides. telling details from the exit polls. when republicans were asked, do you want someone from outside the political establishment, a little more than half said they wanted an outsider. and that, apparently, has helped donald trump tonight. trump, who has presented himself as the outsider this evening, forced to respond to questions about the trump pledge at his rallies. some now arguing it looks like a nazi salute. but trump is now responding. he's also talking live to the nation tonight, after his double victories, speaking there to a crowd, a room, in florida. of course, a next major state in the week ahead, that he will want to take, as well. hillary clinton also speaking live, perhaps, perhaps a sign of what's to come, as these two front-runners and both of these parties could face a duel in the national race. but again, we still have states voting tonight. results to come in and team coverage ahead. we begin with abc's tom llamas in florida where trump is
speaking and responding. >> reporter: a big night for donald trump. >> when you get these kind of numbers where they call them immediately is special. i want to thank the public. i want to thank the special interests and the lobbyists because -- they obviously did something to drive these numbers, i mean, we're close to 50 and 40. >> reporter: on a crucial voting day, trump engulfed in a new correspondent. critics seeing nazi undertones in his new rallying cry. >> raise your right hand, everybody. do you swear that you're going to vote for donald trump tomorrow? raise that hand. i love you! i love you! >> reporter: a pledge of allegiance to trump. >> can i have a pledge? a swearing. raise your right hand. "i do solemnly swear." >> reporter: but that image now reminding some of the third reich and the infamous nazi salute. the former head of the
anti-defamation league, a holocaust survivor, says seeing "an audience of thousands of people raising their hands in what looks like the 'heil hitler' salute" was "offensive, obnoxious and disgusting." the candidate rejecting the comparison. today, on "gma," trump pressed about critics comparing his tone to hitler and mussolini. >> does it suggest to you, you should tone down your rhetoric and your tactics? >> well, maybe so, but i mean, look, i have a tremendous following. we want to make america great again. it's a strong following. i don't know about the hitler comparison. i hadn't heard that. but it's a terrible comparison. i'm not happy about that, certainly. >> reporter: now, in today's voting states, the stop trump movement in full swing. mitt romney recording robocalls for both senator marco rubio and governor john kasich. >> hello. this is mitt romney calling. i'm convinced donald trump would lose to hillary clinton. >> tom llamas with us live tonight, as donald trump speaks there in the background. and tom, you reported there, mitt romney recording those calls for rubio and kasich,
suggesting they vote for anybody but trump. donald trump telling that room tonight, all of these strategies aren't working. >> reporter: it really had no effect, david. he said this is one of the worst weeks he's had with people talking bad about him. romney's strategy seemed counterproductive. he was supporting two candidates, but the goal was to take votes away from donald trump, which could lead to a contested convention, where the delegates would pick the nominee. but that clearly did not happen tonight. david? >> tom llamas with us tonight where donald trump is speaking there in florida, tom, thank you. on the democratic side this evening, hillary clinton speaking and we'll hear from her in a moment. a victory in mississippi. and in michigan, clinton and sanders battling it out there in recent days. look at this. the raw vote coming in, early voting in michigan. still too early to call. a very tight race, with 39% of expected vote reporting. 51% to hillary clinton's 47%. hillary clinton looking to build an unbeatable lead. already turning her focus to the republicans, promising voters overnight she will never allow
donald trump to be elected president. tonl tonight, though, sanders facing some tough math. our political team telling us he would have to win every single remaining state, including michigan tonight, by an average of about ten points. clinton now saying she hopes sanders supporters will rally around her if she gets the nomination, as she did with obama in 2008. what does sanders have to say about that? abc's david wright asked him. >> reporter: before the michigan votes had even been counted, hillary clinton already moved on, holding a rally tonight in cleveland, ohio. >> thank you so much! hello, cleveland! hello, ohio! >> reporter: and talking about mending fences with bernie sanders. >> i certainly consider him an ally. >> would you tap him to be your v.p. choice? >> oh, let's not get ahead of ourselves. you know -- my gosh.
>> reporter: sanders agrees with her on that. in the past 24 hours, she's started to say some very nice things about you. she's talking about closing ranks. she's reminding everybody about how she closed ranks back in 2008. is it premature for that? >> yeah, i think it's a little bit premature. we're running for president. we think we have a path toward the white house. and if we win it, we look forward very much to have secretary clinton's support. >> reporter: sanders moving on, too, holding a huge rally tonight in miami. >> next tuesday, here in florida, let's show the world -- >> reporter: we've done the math, i'm sure you've done the math. it does seem extremely difficult for you to get the nomination. >> no, i beg to differ. we're a couple hundred delegates down. but we have a long, long way to go. >> reporter: bernie sanders is now in florida, where he and hillary clinton will debate again tomorrow. she, as you can see, right up on the stage there, has not yet mentioned the michigan results, but is vowing that it's going to be a very busy week. david? >> she can't mention it yet. david wright in cleveland there, the results have not been
called. let's get to jon karl. first to donald trump. there were some, as you say, warning signs out there. >> reporter: people went to the polls, republicans looking for an outsider, but look at this, david. in michigan, a majority of republicans said they don't think donald trump is honest or trust wore think. and nearly half of republicans in michigan said they will not be satisfied if he's the nominee. the bottom line, republican voters are deeply divided on trump. but david, if you want one number that sums up the mood of this entire election, look at this. 59% of republicans said they believe their party has betrayed their values. >> betrayed their values. perhaps that helping donald trump tonight. really quickly, hillary clinton in michigan. this is a very close race tonight. she has spent a lot of time there. >> reporter: yeah, and in the polls going in showed her with a big lead. so, this is -- she'll come out with the same number of delegates no matter who wins, but it is a warning sign. it is a glimmer of hope for bernie sanders that he can fight
on. michigan is a key state. huge state for democrats. >> warning sewns for both front-runners tonight. jon karl, thank you. in the meantime, to the other news we're following at this hour. a commuter train derailing in california. 200 passengers onboard. one car plunging down this hill, into the cold rushing waters. investigators are on the scene tonight after rescuers today worked to get the passengers out. abc's kayna whitworth is on the scene. >> reporter: a desperate rescue effort. pounding on windows to save passengers from a derailed commuter train that crashed into a fast-moving creek. the freezing water taking over the train. >> i need an additional three ambulances to this location. >> reporter: the ace train, filled with more than 200 silicon valley commuters, leaving san jose at 6:38 p.m. less than an hour later, at 7:15, near disaster. the train ripped from the tracks plummeting 50 feet into the creek below. >> we started seeing water coming into the bottom of the train. >> reporter: 14 people hurt.
nine sent to hospitals. the uninjured walking two miles to safety. heavy rains pounding the region for days, making the area prone to mudslides. officials think that's what brought a tree down on the tracks. >> less than an hour before this incident occurred, there was another train that went through here with no incident. >> reporter: officials say it was a miracle no one was killed. right now, they are pulling that car from the water onto the tracks using cranes. union pacific officials tell me that they have a rigorous track inspection process, especially during weather events, so, they're investigating now how this was missed. david? >> kayna whitworth there all day. kayna, thank you. next, to the severe weather threat tonight. at least 16 million americans bracing at this hour. already at least three tornadoes ripping across texas. heavy rain, up to half a foot more is expected. flash flooding taking at least one life. the system from texas all the way up to illinois. abc's phillip mena from texas
now. >> reporter: powerful storms roaring through the lone star state. at this gas station in saginaw, texas, winds gusting to 70 miles an hour, whipping this canopy. >> the store was full, and everybody was just standing in there scared to death. >> reporter: and confirmed tornadoes. in stevenville, the top of these apartments ripped off. another in the town of cool. >> these folks are here trying to salvage what they can from this. >> reporter: this is damage from winds over 85 miles an hour. >> whoa! >> reporter: power flashes caused by this tornado near tolar, lighting up the sky. >> i heard the hail come and about time i looked out, i see roofs coming off and spinning. >> reporter: jimmy hill helping pull two injured from the rubble. more than a dozen homes here damaged or destroyed. torrential rain leading to multiple high-water rescues, including six students and their driver, after their school bus got stuck in thigh-deep waters outside denton. at least one person dying in floodwaters near houston. david, this is where the home was, and in an instant, it was
blown 50 feet across the road. and tonight, friends are trying to salvage a lifetime of memories as this community braces for another round of storms. david? >> phillip mena. thank you. meteorologist rob marciano is tracking those storms for us tonight. rob? >> reporter: hey, david. the severe weather threat is going to be ongoing tonight. we expect to see another round developing across south-central texas, from corpus christi to austin, back through houston. could see damaging winds and tornadoes with this. overnight tonight, in through the day tomorrow, through southwest louisiana, continued threat. not only of the wind, but heavy rain on top of what is becoming saturated ground. so, a flash flood watch has been posted from the gulf of mexico all the way up through southern illinois. another five to eight inches on top of what's already fallen, so, people who live in this area, david, have to be aware of the potential of life-threatening flooding. david? >> all right, rob, thank you very much. you'll have much more on "gma." in the meantime, overseas tonight, an american tourist, a west point graduate, was killed in an apparent terror attack in israel. cell phone video showing the
suspect stabbing at least seven drivers while running through traffic in the city of jaffa. israeli police opening fire, killing him as he ran behind a truck. the victim, 29-year-old taylor force, a west point graduate who also went to vanderbilt university. back here at home tonight, and members of the fbi under the microscope tonight amid a new investigation into the deadly shooting during the oregon standoff. and here's the question -- did the fbi agents fire, as well, extra shots, and then cover it up? abc's senior justice correspondent pierre thomas with the new video under scrutiny tonight. >> put the laser right there. put the bullet through the head. >> reporter: this just-released cell phone video shows the final moments of robert finicum's life. the chaos caught on tape. racing away from a checkpoint with four passengers. nearly running over an fbi agent -- >> hang on. >> reporter: and a police roadblock. finicum, part of a group that had taken over a federal wildlife refuge, is later fatally shot by oregon state troopers. that, too, caught on fbi surveillance tape. authorities deemed the killing justified. but two mystery shots that
missed finicum fired right as he exited his truck have a team of fbi agents under scrutiny. >> go ahead, shoot me. >> reporter: you can clearly hear one of those shots hitting his truck, right here, as finicum jumps out of his vehicle. >> go ahead, shoot me. >> reporter: watch and listen again. >> go ahead, shoot me. >> reporter: local authorities believe they were fired by the fbi's elite hostage rescue team. if true, the agents apparently never reported those gunshots. so, did the agents mislead supervisors? with questions about a possible fbi coverup, expect an explosion of conspiracy theories in finicum's death. and david, the agents being investigated could face serious punishment. >> pierre, thank you. still ahead tonight. the starbucks recall tonight. the alert for customers going out. the popular breakfast item removed from hundreds of starbucks locations because of a possible listeria contamination. the close call on the side of the road. look at this. a reporter and his photographer inches away from getting hit. and, your money tonight. when is a deal not a deal when you're shopping online?

the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief. and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, remission is possible.
abc's chief business correspondent rebecca jarvis, getting answers tonight. >> reporter: if you're shopping online and think you're getting a great deal, don't be so sure. >> the biggest discount isn't always the lowest price. >> reporter: you may be surprised that you can sometimes put a big "x" over that original list price, from which you think you're getting a discount. we found this crock pot on amazon.com marked down from an original list price of $24.99, apparently on sale for $20.99. but take a look at that same product on the manufacturer's own website. it's $15.99. this mini cuisinart looks like a deal at belk.com. 33% off the original price. on sale for $39.99. but on cuisinart.com, the very same product, almost the same price. the company telling us, it's the "retailer's prerogative to determine the price." on its website, amazon says that list price can be what's
"suggested by the manufacturer or supplier," or an estimated value, "and may or may not represent the prevailing price in every area on any particular day." david, the key to remember, when you're shopping online, the biggest discount isn't always the best price. david? >> rebecca, thanks so much. when we come back here tonight, the starbucks recall. the popular breakfast item. hundreds of locations affected. and the famous nfl star out of the game tonight. also, the close call caught on camera. this reporter and his photographer and the big scare. missing them by just a few inches there. and then, the toddlers trapped in their burning car. the police officer right here, the hero to the rescue. it's america strong. you both have a perfect driving record. perfect. no tickets. no accidents. that is until one of you clips a food truck, ruining your perfect record. yeah. now you would think your insurance company would cut you some slack, right? no. your insurance rates go through the roof... your perfect record doesn't get you anything. anything.
