A combined 69 percent of American voters say they have concerns about Donald Trump's comments and language on women, immigrants and Muslims, including more than half who have "major" concerns, according to a new national NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

That's compared with a combined 64 percent of voters who say they have concerns about Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.

Asked which problem concerns them the most about Trump, 33 percent say it's not having the right temperament to be commander-in-chief; 27 percent say it's his controversial comments about women, immigrants and Muslims; and 13 percent say it's his praise for Vladimir Putin.

For Clinton, 36 percent say they're most concerned about her judgment when it comes to dealing with Syria, Iraq and Libya; 29 percent say it's her use of a private email server; and 9 percent say it's Clinton's recent comment about Trump's supporters.

Just 8 percent of voters say they're concerned the most about Clinton's recent health issues.

The rest of the NBC/WSJ poll — which was conducted Sept. 16-19 of 1,000 registered voters, and it has an overall margin of error of plus-minus 3.1 percentage points — will come out at 5:00 pm ET.
