6:01 am
good morning, everyone. i'm ayman mohyeldin in new york from msnbc headquarters. 9:00 in the east, 6:00 out west. here is what's happening. we begin with politics. donald trump standing by his claim he's the best choice for african-americans and hispanic voters. during an interview trump ratcheted up attacks against democrats and hillary clinton amidst his latest racially charged exchanges with her. take a listen. >> take a look at what's happening with respect to crime. a terrible job she's done, terrible job the democrats have done. they have run inner cities for years and look what you have. they are like war zones. we can stop that immediately. we can over a longer period of time fix the education. we can fix the jobs by bringing jobs back into this century. hillary clinton can never do that. she doesn't have the ability to do that. she doesn't know where to begin. she doesn't want to do it. that's what's been happening for
6:02 am
many years. >> clinton explained why she's been going after trump's character during an exclusive interview on "morning joe" yesterday. >> a man with a long history of racial discrimination who traffic in dark conspiracy theories drawn from the pages of supermarket tabloids subprime assist, anti-semitic should never run our government. if >> domestic violence allegation, allegation of voter registration fraud. nbc muse confirms domestic charges filed in 1996. they also confirmed those charges were dropped. police say it was because they were unable to track down his wife a personal spokes perch not
6:03 am
affiliated with the campaign says he has a great relationship with his ex-wife and twins. trump is headed to iowa state fair, mike pence in virginia. tim kaine holds two events in florida. donald trump heads to iowa where he's locked in dead heat with democratic opponent hillary clinton, jacob rascon in des moines. he joins you now. jacob, good to have you with us. let's talk what we can expect from trump today given the background of what's happened with racially charged statements with hillary clinton. what can we see him say to try to break that tie with hillary clinton. >> reporter: surprisingly what we've seen from the campaign in the last couple of weeks has been pretty predictable. instead of very off the cuff remarks, we're now talking about a candidate who specifically goes after that city where he's in with numbers on unemployment and such.
6:04 am
then he goes after hillary clinton and in a very scripted way as we've seen on the teleprompter only occasionally going off that teleprompter. we expect a lot of the same. he's going to talk about the inner cities, make a direct appeal to minority voters. a major criticism of recent speeches, he's talking about minority voters in places that are overwhelmingly white like here. in des moines we're about 75% white. on that note, the campaign says it is planning to go to more urban areas later. one more thing to mention about this roast and ride as it's called, second annual sponsor by the senator here. asked last night about the rhetoric in the past few days, she says she hopes both candidates will tone it down and have a more sichl civil discourse. we're not expecting trump to call hillary clinton a bigot. that was a little surprising given in the last couple of weeks he's been more disciplined
6:05 am
about not name calling besides his crooked hillary comment. we don't expect that. as usual, wait and see if he decides to go off prompter and say anything else that may get him in trouble. >> jacob, i know you've covered this campaign. a lot of controversy, certainly not anything new. i want to ask you about how the trump campaign has been handling latest round of controversy particularly over its new ceo stephen bannon. >> this was an interesting one because in the last couple of days we've had an opposition file on bannon come out because various papers and now nbc news confirmed in these divorce papers from 20 years ago you have this ceo now accused of a number of things, including domestic abuse, misdemeanor charges and making as well anti-semitic remarks. a couple of remarks. this was 20 years ago. this was during a divorce proceeding. the charges were dropped. when reached out to the campaign, says it talked to his
6:06 am
representative instead. mr. bannon's representative said on the note the charges dropped, he and his ex-wife have a great relationship. on the note of anti-semitic remarks, the spokesperson denied he ever made those remarks that the children went to this school where he apparently had those remarks about jewish people. ayman. >> all right. jacob rascon live in des moines, iowa. moments ago hillary clinton arrived at an fbi office in new york near her home to get her first intelligence briefing. this is video of her arrival. joining me in the studio is msnbc kasie hunt. good to have you with us. let's talk about this briefly. what can we expect to have this take place? what do we know about this? >> this is a traditional courtesy extended to major party nominees. hillary clinton well steeped in national security and foreign policy from her time as secretary of state. she's going to get an updated briefing from officials from the
6:07 am
dni, director of national intelligence. we expect the briefing is going to last about two hours or so. we know that donald trump already had his briefing along these lines. a little bit probably more interest in that because he hasn't -- doesn't have the same background that secretary clinton does. this will likely be her only briefing before the election, before election day, we know who will be president of united states. it's a courtesy extended by tradition. >> do you think there's anything different between what the trump campaign was given in his briefing and her briefing? >> our understanding it's very similar for both candidates. this is a situation they are not delving into deep classified information, more of an overview of the threats facing the country. they are not completely unprepared going into it. presidents past have explained that they felt blind-sided by simply the scope of what they were dealing with when they sat down in the oval office. this is designed to kind of prevent that. >> in every election cycle, the
6:08 am
issue of health of a presidential candidate comes up. certainly both candidates depending on who you ask, have had their fair share of questions posed about their health. i know we've recently had an exclusive interview with donald trump's doctor who put out a very short note when that came out saying he would be one of the healthiest. >> the healthiest president ever elected. >> what did we learn about that and why he made that assessment. >> he's been donald trump's physician for 30 years. he talked exclusively to nbc news. he says he wrote that letter, which is very short and includes such phrases that sound like they came out of donald trump's mouth in many ways, wrote that letter in five minutes, he told us, while the car was waiting outside. so he described being under a little bit of pressure to finish this letter really quickly. but really in context, ayman, we know so little about the health of both of these candidates compared to what we've known about nominees past.
6:09 am
the trump campaign and clinton campaign tussling back and forth. trump campaigns says they will release more health information if hillary clinton does it first. of course there have been trump surrogates trafficking in conspiracy theories about hillary clinton's health. the campaign, of course, says she is totally fine. she made a joking reference to it in that speech she gave earlier this week. >> let's talk about the campaign and batch of e-mails expected to be released i understand as a result of a decision by a judge to have the state release those. is there anything new we ask expect in these? is it going to reignite the debate about her and the e-mails which have really been sticking to her on this campaign? >> it could. what we'll see. remember fbi comey talked about they as they did their investigation found more work related e-mails that hillary clinton's lawyers didn't initially identify and include. i think really the focus is more going to be -- or the impact is
6:10 am
going to be we're going to have another conversation about this fbi investigation, about whether or not she handled turning over those work e-mails correctly on september 13th, the date the state department has been told they need to produce e-mails that in the thick of the final stretch of the election. >> nbc's kasie hunt, good to see you who are. >> good to see you. thank you. the phrase on the campaign trail. alt-right. how donald trump's decisions elevated the movement and the impact it could have on the election in november. americans...

6:12 am
6:13 am
back to politics, let's bring in senior white house correspondent at the time hill. good to have you here. we're talking about this with kasie hunt. i want to pick up on a point as
6:14 am
well hillary clinton released a new wave of campaign ads. really on the issue of race, really highlighting comments he made in the past about race and african-americans. i'd really like to get your thoughts on that, a day after donald trump called her a bigot. take a look at this. >> you're living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs. look at my african-americans. >> donald trump charged with discriminating against african-americans and break the law. >> i have a great relationship with the blacks. i've always had a great relationship with the blacks. >> what the hell do you have to lose? >> a very powerful ad. i'm curious to get your thoughts. she's by most polls gaining 90% of the votes among african-americans. does she need to use this ad? what's the purpose of this ad if
6:15 am
she's so dominant among african-american voters. >> just to basically keep them where they are. she wants to basically hold them and say, you know, everything we've been talking about, everything we've been discussing, everything you've heard from donald trump is true. this is basically aimed at this ad is going to run in a state like north carolina, pennsylvania and ohio. he has zero percent of the vote in pennsylvania and ohio. in north carolina she's aiming -- targeting african-americans to help build her up and "her" win the state there. >> one of the points that came out earlier in this week donald trump certainly was not holding back his words when he called her a bigot, when she used that. she has not gone that far labeling him a bigot but has said his policies amounted to bigotry or pandering in bigotry or trading in bigotry. does she need to be a little more forceful here? why do you think she's not using the same kind of language he's using in this name calling back
6:16 am
and forth? >> i think she's trying to appear presidential. that's something he's had to walk back a little bit. his advisers don't want him out there using words like bigot. she's trying to walk a fine line saying this is a guy supported by people who support the kkk. that's something that she's going to continue to kind of hammer home. that's part of her defense, holding off people and not having them vote. i think what he's trying to do, target people who maybe supported bernie sanders, open to an outsider. and so she's trying to stave them off a bit. >> let's talk about this issue hurting the campaign, the issue of the e-mails there once again in the spotlight we're expecting a new batch of thousands of e-mails to be released in a couple weeks' time. how damaging could those e-mails be to this campaign? why sblg issue not going away for the clinton campaign? >> i don't think it's ever going away until november and beyond. she needs to step away from it as much as possible.
6:17 am
what it does is highlight trust issue. trust issue and likability issue are what's killing her right now. she needs to sort of win back that trust in a way. so you know, i think she has to -- she's going to continue to say there's nothing to see here, that's what her aides are saying. so far there hasn't been a smoking gun, as she said a few times. she's going to try to pivot away from that. >> believability is a factor, consistent issue among voters polled about this issue. >> specifically she's targeting moderate republicans right now and those are the people who still have questions about her likability and trust factor. >> let's switch gears and a little bit of talk on the republican side. a big issue facing republican campaign has been immigration. a lot of people say he's changed or softened his position. he says it has hardened. different positions or policies, if you will. sarah palin and others have been very critical of a possible
6:18 am
change in trump's position on immigration, saying we have a graphic, massive disappointment if he did change position of deportation of illegal immigrants. is she right? would there be a massive disappointment among conservatives if donald trump softened his position or even changed his position? >> i think so. i talked to people who basically affirmed that. i wouldn't support him. they like his stance of mass deportation. they don't want him to soften on that issue. he does move away from it, that's going to further muddy his support among conservatives and people who do support him. i think, you know, he's going to have to clarify it. debates in september in particular where he's pressed on this. basically said, oh, no, he's just softening his words but hasn't softened his stance yet. that's going to be called bo question in september. >> appreciate it. thanks very much for joining us.
6:19 am
>> thank you. the governor of maine, a threat to a fellow politician and why it was released stay with us. >> i want you to record this and release it to the public because i'm after you. crabfest is on at red lobster so come dive into dishes like the new alaska bairdi crab dinner with sweet crab from the icy waters of alaska. or try crab lover's dream with tender snow and king crab legs. love crab? then hurry, crabst ends soon.

6:22 am
whew... it's got a little kicto it. i'm sorry, i can't hear you? nice shirt craig. at jet.com, we're always looking for unbelievable money saving innovations. effectively taken over the republican party. the paranoid fringe now calls it's self alt-right. there's always been a paranoid fringe in our politics, a lot of it arising from racial resentment but it's never had the nominee of a mainly party stoking it, encouraging it and giving it a national mega phon until now. >> that was presidential candidate hillary clinton accusing donald trump of running a campaign that appeals to racists and racist right wing in the country. let's bring in matthew.
6:23 am
good to have you with us saturday morning. let's talk about this organization and this particular organization and so-called alt rate, dissatisfied voters? >> narrower, i wouldn't call it an organization, really internet personalities and social media trolls. they kind of unify around one idea mainstream conservative movement in the republican party is actually in their view too egalitari egalitarian. for the law, african-american minorities and too friendly to the jews. this is a fringe element like authorize and secretary clinton said. even though donald trump isn't a member of it, he's definitely played footsie with it and they believe they found their man with donald trump. >> do you know how big it is when you have something as loose as a group of internet trolls or
6:24 am
members? how do you measure the size of it and its impact on conservative politics and on their candidate? >> it is hard to measure just how many of these people there are. i don't think there's any political constituency in the country yet for this set of frankly racist and anti-semitic ideas. >> what's happened, because they think trump is speaking their language, or at least stands for some type of version of what they believe, they feel empowered. there's also been a danger in recent months, you have websites like breitbart.com that have begun to main stram some of their views, maybe not radical ones but going to the blurry line, you start out being against political correctness. if you follow the next train of thoughts or logic, you end up in stone cold racism. that's a real danger. >> let me pick up on that point.
6:25 am
why do you think alt-right, whoever they may be, what have they seen in donald trump that made them attach to his campaign or if not officially endorse him feel that he speaks on their behalf? >> well, there have been a few cues right from the very start. of course trump's main issue during the primaries was i will immigration. opposition to immigration, opposition to legalization plans and so-called deportation force he wanted to build. this group of writers like that very much. they have tried to rationalize trump's swings on the issue. then it continued with the whole reluctance or refusal to disavow david duke earlier, initially with david tapper in the spring. then the star of david twitter thing, he's retweeted this account that's called it's self white genocide. so there have been little things over the course of the past year that have given cues to this group of people that maybe they would have a voice or at least
6:26 am
some sympathy in a trump administration. >> you talked about breitbart.com. obviously the ceo of the trump campaign has now been installed steve bannon from breitbart news. as "the washington post" describes him he's a man who helped transform mainstream conservative to alt-right. what does he say about the trump campaign and who he wants to appeal to. >> it's another one of those cues to the alt-right i discussed earlier, another in the progression. i'm not sure how much influence steve bannon has over the campaign. i think trump is listening to people like kellyanne conway, outside advisers like roger ailes, chris christie. it's kind of a signal to the ultraright and also the alt-right people that, hey, you know, you're going to be included or at least the more
6:27 am
legitimate expressions of your racist views will be included in a trump campaign or even possibly administration. >> matthew, always a pleasure to have you on. thanks for joining us. >> thank you. nbc news learned high-level negotiations under way to end a five--year-old war in syria. john kerry said he and russia's foreign minister achieved clarity on a path to restore the truce. kerry said details need to be worked out. this comes on the release of a heartbreaking video on social media, two young brothers hugging and crying after they were heard their third brother killed on an airstrike in aleppo. the type of bomb that killed their brother commonly used. united nations pushing for weekly 48 hour pause in fighting in aleppo to try to alleviate suffering for 2 million people. for me we invite to you take a look on aleppo children of war and digital feature on

tums smoothies starts dissolving the instant it tches your tongue. and neutralizes stomach acid at the source. tum-tum-tum-tum-tums smoothies, only from tums. welcome back, everyone. i'm ayman mohyeldin at headquarters in new york. at the half here are the big stories we're monitoring. italy, death toll has risen to 290. italy is observing a day of morning from victims that includes a state funeral for some of the victims. it was also attended by italy's prime minister and president. we're also closely monitoring the latest satellite imagery of that tropical disturbance. still moving west northwest and could still become a tropical depression or tropical storm in the next day or so. obviously means bahamas and south florida could get heavy rain and flashing flooding through the weekend, something we're following very closely.
6:32 am
let's go to italy and connect with lucy kafanov. lucy has been covering -- i understand we're going to florida and catch up with sarah dallof who is -- do we have sarah? >> reporter: hey, ayman, ku hear me? >> sorry about that. we're having technical problems. i'm glad we connected with you. let's talk about concern officials down there have with this weather pattern developing off the coast of florida. why does anything that brings rainfall to florida pose a potential risk for the fight against zika virus? >> that's a great question, ayman. basically this wave of tropical weather moving through, we don't know if it's a tropical storm, hurricane or bring rain to the region. initially it's going to blow all the mosquitoes out of the sky. after that the moisture will leave behind standing puddles of water just perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes,
6:33 am
especially those believed to transmit zika virus. officials urging ahead of the storm and after to dump any standing water around the house this as health officials go door to door in the two areas believed to be responsible -- or local transmissions believes to be occurring in these two small areas. officials putting emphasis right now on battling zika. >> we made progress. e wynnewood area down to half a mile. we haven't had a new case in a little over three weeks now down there, so that's positive. we have 42 cases we believe were nontravel related cases in the state and everybody is working well. >> and the state's governor continues to push congress for more funding. one worry, an activity hurricane
6:34 am
season could divert necessary emergency funds. ayman, back to you. >> sarah dallof in florida. thanks for that update. let's go back to italy and reconnect with lucy kafanov. she's in an area affected by the earthquake. lucy, everyone has been accounted for at this point or do they executive figures to continue to rise? >> reporter: ayman, unfortunately figures could continue to rise. they haven't necessarily accounted for everyone missing. that search continuing. rescue operations hampered by a number of dangers not the least of which is wave after wave of aftershocks. amatrice, hardest hit, effectively closed off to anyone except the most essential rescue teams. ayman, the focus on homes for those living searching desperately for those missing but paying respect to those that lost their lives.
6:35 am
enitaly this morning grief and final fair wls, a day of national mourning. the search goes on but hope is nearly gone reality sinking in for those who made it out alive. it's really incredible, a town that's been around for centuries turned to rubble in an instance. now the sea of tents is the only thing these folks have to call home. >> little sophia was born less than three weeks after the quake. she won't remember the horror her father will never forget. disaster struck in the dead of night. it was chaos he tells me. walls crumbled, wardrobes fell. we have nothing now. >> your family survived in spite of everything. was it luck? i was fortunate, others were not. danielle made it out, her
6:36 am
parents did not. we lost everything, she says. it's all gone. but even here amidst the darkness, light and life as the nation mourns its dead. a lot of soul searching in italy, people coming to grips with the full scale of the disaster but also some finger pointing, ayman. italy has been known rescuing people after earthquakes but as far as before hand, that's another matter. >> lucy kafanov, thank you for that update. we want to go back to politics, major republican governor under fire after leaving obscene voicemail on a democratic lawmakers phone. maine's governor paul lepage apologized after a week of controversial remarks. this isn't the first time he's come under fire. some are saying they have had enough and calling for his resignation. >> i'm after you.
6:37 am
>> republican governor paul lepage at it again. >> you little son of a [ bleep ] socialist [ bleep ]. >> democratic leaders in maine calling for his resignation try after a week of controversial remarks. >> he is unfit to serve as governor of the state of maine right now. >> it all started wednesday when lepage made racially charged comments about the state's drug offenders. >> 90% of those pictures in my book, and it's a three-ring binder are black and hispanic people. >> prompting this response from democratic representative drew gattin. >> these kinds of racially charged comments from the governor don't do anything to try to solve this problem. >> so lepage left him a voicemail. >> i want you to prove that i'm a racist. you lite son of a [ bleep ] socialist [ bleep ]. >> reporter: it didn't stop there. when asked about that voicemail, lepage told a local reporter. >> i wish it was 1825 and we'd
6:38 am
have a duel. that's how angry i am. i'd point it right between his eyes. >> reporter: but it's the governor who came under fire prompting a friday apology, sort of. >> i would like to apologize to the people of the state of maine. i do not apologize to him for what i said. everything i said to him was less insulting that him calling me a racist. >> i think his comments were racially charged and not helpful and i stand behind those comments, but i didn't call him a racist. >> you don't like me and i don't like you. >> outspoken and a trump supporter, lepage has said eye rolling things. >> smoothie, shifty, they come up here, sell their heroin and go back home. incidentally half the time they impregnate a young white girl before they leave. >> as his critics mount, lepage shows no signs of backing down.
6:39 am
>> that was nbc's morgan ratford reporting. the reaction to lepage's latest remarks are strong. here is one example. governor lepage is a reason we need background checks. unstable racists with anger management problems shouldn't have gun access. how voter turnout may affect the election especially members of one group. coming up the top of the hour, a.m. joy, donald trump's pitch to black pastors, one supporting trump, the other backing clinton.

6:42 am
what makes wendy's baconator different? while the other guys use frozen beef from far away. wendy's only serves fresh beef from ranches close by. so we don't have to freeze it. add six strips of thick, applewood smoked bacon. and wendy's baconator isn't just different, it's deliciously different. in the midwest flooding is a major concern. torrential rain in kansas city prompting drivers multiple water rescues. they were urged to move to higher ground. similar in indianapolis, officials warning a foot of water will float many vehicles. joining us meteorologist bonnie schneider, good to have you with us. it's more than flooding we're keeping an eye on, there is a
6:43 am
tropical threat out there? >> absolutely, one we've been watching for a while. invest 99-l, right here, loosely organized. gaston likely to be a hurricane. that's going out to sea. 99-l similar in the vicinity of bahamas hasn't organized much and hurricane hunter flight on schedule today but it's been canceled. look there, only 20% chance in next 48 hours but 40% beyond that for five days. this is why we could see some development with the system. water temperatures 90 degrees. this is record warmth in the gulf of mexico. but the wind shear, it's also strong. that's one of the reasons 99-l has been having trouble getting organized. as we go through the rest of the week, though, we are going to see enhanced rain in florida. west coast or east coast you will see wet weather. look at this, another tropical disturbance is bringing about rain to an area that does not
6:44 am
need it. southwest louisiana, even south central louisiana, the parish is there getting heavy rain enhanced from the gulf of mexico. looking at computer models going forward over the next five days, this system whether it gets a name, becomes hermine or not could see locally five inches of rain, including naples, florida. we are looking at soggy conditions. don't let the fact it's not a named storm fool you into complacency. looking across miami. scattered showers and thunderstorms coming into south beach right now all the way down to the florida keys and further offshore right along the panhandle. as we look what we can expect across the midwest, we were talking about those storms and flooding in kansas city. last night multiple water rescues, six inches of rain in and around the kansas city area. some storms rolling through chicago. ayman, we are still looking at a flood threat in the midwest but as we look toward tropics that's something to keep a close watch
6:45 am
on in days to come. >> so many dangerous situations ags we were hearing earlier from sarah dallof, what that rainfall might mean against the fight against zika. thank you. i know you'll be tracking that throughout the day. back to decision 2016 and voter turnout particularly for millennials. andrew, good to have you with us this saturday. let's talk a little, very important, influential, you say apathy could be a very big problem in this election. why is that? >> an election among millennials where they are not loving either of their candidates. millennials disdain donald trump. we recently did a poll for next gen climate action, think he's a racist, 70% think a shame if he's elected president. they are not going to vote for trump but they are also wit holding their support for secretary clinton. this is a group that
6:46 am
overwhelmingly went for bernie sanders in the primaries and, you know, they want to see more from secretary clinton before they decide to vote for her. her problem is not that these voters will end up voting for trump. they will stay home or vote for third party candidate. >> let me pick up on the point you brought up. a lot of millennials excited about bernie sanders. some have said he has not been coming out as forcefully as he could be supporting clinton and getting his supporters, particularly millennials, behind her. he'll come out on labor day. can he gets his supporters to vote for clinton? >> he can help. it's a necessary -- they will not turn out for clinton because he says so but it will help. needs to do a better job showing millennial voters why it's good for them. 40% of millennials say there's no defense between secretary clinton and donald trump on the issues that matter to them. that number among those we
6:47 am
describe as bernie holdouts. >> let me ask you, what are some of those issues that matter to them? >> sure thing. at the top of the list is economy, economy that works for everybody, middle class, not just wemty. college affordability. not surprisingly. at the top of the list, climate and clean energy. those are the three issue areas important to them. this is, you know, a challenge for secretary clinton but also an opportunity. she's still ahead by quite a bit in the polls despite this problem. if she can consolidate these voters, she's got a chance to move out further in front of donald trump. >> we'll put this back up on the screen but millennials are a huge group just as big as baby boomers. 31% of the electorate made up of baby boomers or millennials as you can see there on your screen. i'm curious to get your thoughts. if they do not show up to the polls, who is going to be affected more by that, republicans or democrats? what's doing to happen? >> certainly democrats. this is a group that is heavily
6:48 am
democratic. they identify less with either party than any generation before. but on the issues they tilt very progressive. when push comes to shove, they vote democratic. they are now the largest group of the electorate as you just mentioned. they have never voted the same numbers other generations have, we shouldn't expect that this cycle. if they fall out from previous numbers, that will be a problem for secretary clinton up and down the ballots. on the other hand. so andrew, let me ask you, young voters in battleground states. we have video from focus group in milwaukee which includes undecided voters. take a listen what they said and i'll get your reaction on the back end. >> everybody wants somebody who can fix it. our company is in turmoil because of politicians, not because of people. it's not going to take a
6:49 am
politician to fix our country. donald trump made millions before politics. he doesn't need the money. >> some of the things donald trump has done and said makes it impossible for me to vote for him. >> i'm tired of the circus. i want to see the meat and potatoes of it all. i think i'll make more of a solid decision once i watch the debates. >> i'm just hoping for actual discussions about political topics and not so muchf the mud slinger dirty politics that's been going on between these two over the past couple of months. >> so the comments there among these people is they want the issue, an issue oriented campaign. does that jibe with what you find from your survey of young voters? are they also issue oriented as well? >> it does. i think there's a lot of things going on here. one thing sort of the world view of these two candidates. that's what's really the problem for p donald trump. his world view and everything we've been seeing over the last few days, very divisive, noninclusive, nonmulti-cultural.
6:50 am
that is totally against what most millennials believe. that's a real advantage for secretary clinton. but to end up voting for her, they need more. they need to see just discussed, that they want to vote for something. they want to vote for someone that will put out proposals and ideas that they think will make america a better place. and as of yet, they haven't seen that. but i think the secretary clinton, you know n concert with bernie sanders, you know, she sort of adopted his college education plan, for instance. she working to correct that. >> all right. andrew, thanks for breaking that down for us. >> no problem. thanks for having me. presidential politics, the numbers influencing both campaigns this week and right now.

so we're 73 days away from the presidential election. that's obviously an important number, no doubt, for the candidates, for the country. but now we go to other numbers that matter most.
6:54 am
we bring in once again politico's chief polling analyst, steven shepard. appreciate it. so, you know, we're going to begin with a couple numbers that really don't reflect well on the candidates and that's particularly about the issue of honesty. which candidates' honesty is a bigger concern? >> well, on this one, measure hillary clinton is in a hole here. fewer than 3 in 10 likely voters in november, according to a quinnipiac university poll out this week view her as honest. only 29%. donald trump, 42% of voters view him as honest. this is clearly hillary clinton's biggest liability. now, the one top line number from this poll that's really important is hillary clinton leads donald trump in this poll by ten points. 51-41. but when only 29% of likely voters view her as honest, this is going to be the big liability for her, over the next 73 days. and something that you would think you would hear a lot from donald trump's campaign. >> so let's talk about which voting group is clinton having trouble with in terms of
6:55 am
honesty? are they a potent group, can they influence this election one way or another. >> a smart democratic pollster talking about millennials, hillary clinton wins 64% under age 35. however, they are the voters who see her as most dishonest. 71% of these voters view hillary clinton as dishonest despite the fact that 61% are going to vote for her. it speaks a lot to how much cooler they are on hillary clinton compared to barack obama. >> 96, what's the significance of 96? >> also comes from the same poll. this is the percentage of voters who view each candidate favorably who are going to vote for that candidate. so donald trump's favorable rating, 33%. 96% say they'll vote for him already. hillary clinton's eight point higher, 96% of her favorables vote for her. speaks a little bit to where these candidates' ceilings are.
6:56 am
one other thing that's it interesting from this, 16% of voters who view clinton unbehaviorbly are going to vote for her. that's another advantage. she has only 10% of voters who will vote for her. trump's negatives are not just wider, they're also deeper. >> all right. and our next number, 58%, say trump is not qualified to be president. while only 33% think clinton is not qualified. how unusual is this disparity? >> i mean, just think of it. look back at recent elections. you're talking about a pretty big majority of likely voters who don't view one of the two major party candidates as qualified to hold office. that's striking. we talked about young voters a moment ago. they're the ones who are most likely to say that trump is not qualified. 70% of voters under age 35. that's one of the reaches why even they though don't trust hillary clinton, would rather see her as president rather than donald trump. >>e have to lee it at that. thank you very much for that insight. appreciate it. thanks for breaking those numbers down for us. >> always a pleasure. coming up next, mixed
