why not catch your transportation at the boathouse and cross the river. all these d.c. spots definitely worth the trip. melissa mollett, first 4 traffic. >> even more day trips are in our nbc washington app. just search "worth the trip." so to the type of ride. politics. it has been crazy. a new poll shows just how much we may or may not like the presidential candidates. >> more toward the not liking side. joining us how to break it down, chuck todd. you have a new nbc wall street journal poll and it has some unfavorable ratings. >> i'll say glass is half full. in look at you. >> which is these two are bringing the country together. donald trump and hillary clinton have brought the country together in one respect, they are united against them about that's the most remarkable finding. hillary clinton on her own, her unfavorable rating would be the highest for a perspective nominee.
trump who is actually the highest. the two of them -- what is interesting being we were able to slight up there is about one in five voters that have they go difference views of both of them. and boy, do they prefer bernie sanders by a lot. these folks are less likely to vote if he's not on the ballot. they slightly lean republican when you see where they're going, at the same time, they're younger voters. so that is your swing vote. that is really what you sort of see there, that some some are saying they're supporters, some are labibertarians, soft republicans. they would like a third option, but we haven't offered them one. >> and that was striking to me. 47% said they would are consider a third party candidate. so we're definitely not looking at model turnout with this election. i mean are we looking at four different -- >> i go back and forth.
record high turnout, trump will galvanize the american voter positive or negative. when i looked at these numbers and first of all looked more conventional than ever, basically generic d, generic r is a three point gap and hillary clinton/trump is a three point game. for those who don't like either one, there is less enthusiasm. soo we may end up with a lower turnout. and in that case, you'd probably rather be the democrat. >> do you see anyway that someone else comes into the race? >> mark could ykcuban was someb was floated. he says, look, he wasn't ready for this cycle. items something that he would like to think about in the future. but later this coming week, libertarian party, probably gets on 50 plus stateh
their convention, their nominee would be gary johnson and pill we bill well. you never know. i don't think that they will break through as a competitive three-way race, but as a none of the above option that get 10%, that keeps an eye on. because that impacts both candidates in different state. you make the winning number 45% instead of 50%, that changes the math and calculus of the electoral college. >> and you have hillary clinton and markcuban. >> pretty good show. fun stuff. >> thanks for stopping by. and reminder, you can see "meet the press" every sunday right here on nbc 4. it airs right after "news 4 today." want to turn our attention to the weather now and all of this drizzle and you're looking more -- i like your optimism, as well. chuck was optimistic about
uniting the country and you the forecast. >> cloudy today, but then, yes, promising hughs. sunshine and welcome summerlike weather is on the way coming up. right now though we're still dealing with this rain that continues to fall and actually getting a little more widespread on storm team 4 radar out of west virginia, thonorthern virga and into maryland. getting a couple pockets of moderate showers. the areas you see here in the yellow and orange in the central shenandoah valley, those are downpours now just to the south and east of winchester and south of front royal. these will be tracking off to the east and fauquier county and right now it's all light rain across loudoun and montgomery. and that will be advancing right into fairfax, the district, prince george's county shortly. so have umbrella, poncho, rain boots. and you'll needed a jacket and slacks, too, because it will be cool. a little bit of a breeze around. temperatures are hover in the 50s and for the rest of the day
