proven he can actually get while donald trump is out -- i wish he would. we haven't talked about it. his runhis peace with for presidency and is really happy to be back in ohio. mark: the democrats would be afraid of newt gingrich, when they -- wouldn't they? i served with him. he is a smart guy. fred is probably right about the kind of need that donald trump appeared -- donald trump has. john: we asked about potential running mates for hillary
clinton. elizabeth warren is the top choice. there's virtually no chance that hillary clinton would pick her -- >> mrs. clinton has indicated that she will keep an open mind. i don't know senator warren very well. the most effective critique of donald trump -- i know cory booker. former mayor, could help relations in the congress. i don't know secretary castro. . do know tim kaine they would help mrs. clinton shore up constituency support. john: who do you think would be the best buys presidential pick for hillary clinton -- vice presidential pick for heller
clinton? viceould be the best -- presidential pick for hillary clinton? >> i think tim kaine and cory booker and elizabeth warren certainly drive the party. mark: we asked about the republican brand in our poll. 32% said they had a favorable view. 62% unfavorable. his donald trump -- is donald trump helping or hurting? >> he is changing the brand. it is hurting a little bit. , i'm of therun feeling that he is bringing new people and new excitement to the republican party. it is a party that has been a little confused through the primary process. ande is a clarity there whether the establishment likes
the clarity or not, we will see how it turns out. we played donald trump saying today, basically, i may have to go it alone here. republican leaders should just be quiet. is that a sensible strategy or way of looking at the world? >> it probably would not have been my advice to him. with paul ryan and mitch mcconnell, people who are very sharp, very good establishment politicians nipping at your heels, what are you going to do? don't jump is not the guy to sit back and say yes to let me fall in line. fighting hisre every breath and i think you will continue to do that.
that is part of his unusual popularity. if the senate committee came in and said if donald trump is the take, we will lose the senate majority. and mitch mcconnell says to you, what should we do? >> i would say we need to change that dynamic. and get on board. i agree with harold. hillary and obama have made a great tech team this week. -- tag team this week. about is overly elated donald trump or hillary clinton. but the democrats have done a far better job of coalescing behind him -- behind her and moving forward. it's about time for the republicans to do the same. i will probably get about a thousand phone calls for that when the show was over. but that would be my advice. mark: secretary clinton refused to commit to keeping
wasserman schultz on -- >> i've said repeatedly that i think the chairwoman made things messier than it should have been. to professor right support for mrs. clinton, but as --arty chair, bernie sanders if the only way to keep harmony is for denver wasserman schultz -- i don'thairman have any issues with what mrs. clinton is saying. pretend like you are bernie sanders's chief advisor tellppeared what would you him to do? income a speech about inequality and how you raise these issues.
alex has been waiting to see you all day long. ryan.t talked about paul the speaker today was leaving the door wide open with rescinding his endorsement of donald trump. >> a lot of republican leaders are not terribly enthusiastic about the reboot of the trump campaign in the trump -- and the trump campaign. they are being rivers -- reserved. by how surprised restrained your hearing more republican leaders. is --do you think he >> not now. i take him at his word.
he says it is not something i intend to do. i don't think it is something he is contemplating doing. he's going through what a lot of republican leaders are going through. they have endorsed trump and are planning to stick with trump. they are concerned about his campaign. alix: are they concerned about the damage a trump endorsement cause to their own campaigns? >> in terms of how to think , i'm trump, his view is critical of trump, what i say is not reflective of what he thinks -- if house republicans are divided, it will do more -- even if they think the things trump is saying are reprehensible, it will do more damage --
republicans think have finally reached the -- a lot of republicans seem to hear trump and say that is a lost cause. >> losing hope is probably the right way to look at it. going to winmp is this fall, he has to create a campaign around him, he has to have a message. he has to have surrogates who go out and echo his message. he's been the present of nominee for over six weeks. -- presumptive nominee for over six weeks. the trajectory in the polls right now is very troubling. if i'm donald trump come i'm worried about it. party elders and strategists and related folks say trump knows to build a campaign, one might as well say trump needs to sprout wings and
do several other things that will never naturally happen given this man's trajectory thus far. what reason is there to still hold out hope? >> because he wants to win. he wants to be president of the united states. >> do you think he believes he needs to change in order to win? are about to find out. if he wants to win, he has to build a campaign. he is not doing that as of now. healy has one or two communicators on the whole campaign. -- he only has one or two communicators on the whole campaign. imagine what trump's communicators are dealing with on a day-to-day basis right now. no campaign organization, no fundraising, no communication with the rnc, continuing to say incredibly inflammatory things. the sky is about one speed. speed. guy is about one
the idea that he is going to suddenly begin behaving presidential is wishful thinking. john: you were out front never trump. pretty much out front dump trump. correct? >> there are a number of people who are brainstorming on whether or not we can capitalize on right now, there is genuine concern among a lot of republicans, elected the leaders, donors and activists and many delegates attending the fearntion, there is this -- there is a correlation between tolerance for the insane things he does and the way he behaves and the poll numbers. the moment those poll numbers drop, tolerance goes down.
there is discussion about --ther or not he can be this going towhether it's be about as successful as all the efforts in the never trump movement. what is the percentage of likelihood that he will be the nominee after the convention? plus >> these 80% things reach a tipping point. it will happen very quickly if it's going to happen. moment where the support for him collapses and the political universe looks very different. six weeks from here to cleveland, that is a long time in presidential politics and a lot can change. you look at the general american approval for each party -- are there conversations happening in republican circles about november and what happens
after november? >> in 1992, 1 of the people running for president, he was a self-funded billionaire and at this point, he looked very viable. six weeks later, he dropped out of the race. that was ross perot. a lot can happen between now and the convention and even more will happen within the convention and november. to show is on trump that he can put together a campaign -- i will say what donald trump would say to both of you -- "be quiet." >> you were dissing our never trump efforts. john: thank you, all three of you. when we return from our bloombergpolitics national poll.
mark: joining us now to talk more about our new bloombergpolitics national poll -- you can read his two stories on bloombergpolitics.com right now. tell us about this issue of brand, how the two parties b are -- the two parties' are doing.-- brands john: donald trump is not doing anything positive for the republican brand right now. only about one third of americans right now view the republican brand in a favorable way. level we've recorded since the polls inception in 2009. mark: how is the democratic
brand doing? john: much better. about half of americans view the democratic party in a favorable light. it sets up the contours for this race at the presidential level ,nd could also affect races congressional races and down ballot races for governorships, etc. the longm struck by track number in this poll, which is very high, 68% say the country is on the wrong track. it has been over 50% for a long time. it is a strange thing to me that the wrong track number is that high and barack obama's approval rating is well over 50%. how do we reconcile those in the electorate? john: it really is a stark contrast. it would be an environment that donald trump could take advantage of if things were going better for his campaign right now.
those numbers at the highest level we recorded in a bloomberg polls going back to 2010, 2009. an atmosphere where a challenge to the incumbent party seemingly would have an advantage. we asked people about their economic and personal situation in life. we the first time since started asking the question in 2010, a majority of americans a they are better off, they feel they did at the peak of the recession in 2009. are feelingnally better about their situation and yet, there is a widely held belief the country is heading in the wrong direction. the bulk of this poll was done before the land of massacre. -- the orlando massacre. talk about the top issues for voters in our survey. the economy is
always the top issue that people list. that was about 1/5 of the electorate. terrorism andne isis, the number of approaches and actually surpasses jobs and the economy just lightly. pickup in those numbers following the terrorist attack in orlando. we will see how this plays out over the coming weeks. at aally, people are heightened level of concern when it comes to terrorism, as would be expected. mark: you are watching us from washington, d.c. we will be right back. ♪
