6:10 pm
republicans. >> the bill is to the president's liking, the white house, says, the question now, how hard will he personally push to get all republicans on board. and right now, republicans do not have the support to move this bill through the senate. in fact, earlier this afternoon, another senator came out against the bill that puts the republican nos at five. they're hoping to turn it around and get a vote by the end of next week. >> thank you. one day after the funeral of university of virginia student otto, north korea says the cause of his death is a mystery. they don't know why he died after 18 months. they say blame president obama's administration, saying he was a victim of u.s. policy known as strategic patience. he was in a coma when he

6:15 pm
back to politics now and a look at brand new nbc news "wall street journal" poll numbers. >> president trump's job approval rating stands at 40%,
6:16 pm
month's rating from 39%, but the president's base is holding strong. recommend republicans support mr. trump by 82-13%. >> the health care reform battle even though the new poll shows 16% of adults believe the house version of that bill is a good idea. chuck todd is the nbc news political director and moderator of meet the press. it was done before we had the senate version of the health care bill, but we're still waiting to really understand that one. how do you see this playing out. >> i think -- it's more like the house bill than i think some of us thought it would be. but there's an important subgroup in that health care bill, so, yes, only 16% support. but more among republicans, more support the bill that don't support the bill. not a great number, that's what's driving all of this. why do senate republicans even in the face of what
6:17 pm
extraordinary popular bill that they're about to pass. why are they going to do it. sent the message to republicans that, oh, the base hasn't given them on and the base may punish republicans for not doing anything on health care. i think it's a bad choice to make. mitch mcconnell, the way is going to try to pass this bill is make the case make the political case and say, look, this is going to be hard in about four years to deal with. but right now, it will be worse if we do nothing. >> but what about all the angry town hall meetings that the congressman had. >> look, i think there's going to be some and it will be a penalty. we live in such, you know, we live in a polarized way. for instance, while the bill is unpopular among people that live in republican
6:18 pm
it's not unpopular. so the point -- you get this point where we're -- it really depends on where you stand and because the republican feedback loop, when they do their polling among their constituents because of the way we're all living in the separate camps, they don't feel a penalty for those that don't like it. there's no political penalty. >> it was historically bad but solid. and that's exactly what it is. the biggest faction, there's no majority. the biggest faction, though, is trump's faction at 38 to 40%. it is solid. right, they're not budging. >> no matter what. they're organized around anything other than not -- it's antitrump, there's no other organizing principle and it's not been enough to stop the agenda. >> this russia investigation could have an effect. and there's p
6:19 pm
turn now that trump has come out and admitting he never had a case on comey. this can be seen as evidence of witness tampering and perhaps obstruction of justice. what's your take, first of all. >> it feels like doesn't do this justice, ironny, is the word that doesn't feel like that. it's because of the threat's tapes tweets that comey decided to go public with the memos. those memos in turn triggered deputy attorney general to appoint special counsel who is now looking into the russia investigation but also the department of justice. plenty of legal scholars have said the president's explanation for the tweet was a form of intimidation. he doesn't use the word intimidation, he thought, hey, he was influence his testimony. again this is unforced, it was self inflicted. th
6:20 pm
in his inability to come part mentalize it. >> they're saying that trump was asking them to come out and denounce the investigation as well. when you combine all of those together, it's -- he's stepping on every single legal land mime that's been placed around him. he can survive that, as long as the core part of the investigation doesn't turn up anything of collusion. >> turning the corner a little bit, the lack of news conference as the president hasn't had one in four months or something and now they're banning cameras from the press briefings. i mean, should americans be concerned about this lack of transparency? aside from the media complaining about it, what about the public? >> i'm not going to get on
6:21 pm
camera issue too much in that. before 1998, it was a regular thing that debriefings were televised. it wasn't until the lewinsky scandal took off. the press secretary didn't kick them out. right. so then it became a tradition in all of that stuff. i would -- i am more concerned about the lack of -- so they held a briefing today, but they consistently say, you ask them a question and it can be a substantive question about policy and it's like, we'll get back to you and they never get back. it's not -- it's the idea that the press shop is in actually acting as a go between between the public and the information that's public wants to know they're a conduit and transparency. i think over time all of this accumulate. when you combine it with the health care bill in secret, then you throw in, he won't release his tax returns and things like that. over time, that
6:22 pm
accumulate. no one individual i think is a problem. again, because the media is as popular as congress is these days. it's not like people are going to go marching in the streets going we want cameras in the white house press briefing room. they're not going to be doing that, per se. >> all right, chuck, you've got two exclusive guests this week. >> yeah, we'll get a lot of health care. >> vth senator and wisconsin senator ron johnson we'll look forward to it. meet the press 10:30 sunday morning. we hope you'll tune in. thank you. >> thank you. >> see you in a minute. wild scene at the mega bus goes out of control, crashing into several cars and shutting down a busy street for hours. what we're just learning about the moments leading up to this massive wreck. she was just 18 years old when she was sexually assaulted by a man who would later become known as the patomic river rapist, coming up, she's sharing her story with news 4 and hoping to hp
