Most Americans OK with Clinton v. Bush Election

Just three-in-10 American voters – 31 percent – say they're dissatisfied about the possibility that Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush could be the general-election nominees in 2016, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

By comparison, a combined 67 percent of voters are either "very," "fairly" or "somewhat" satisfied about that prospect – but the tepid "somewhat" is the larger number here.

Twenty-nine percent are somewhat satisfied about Clinton and Bush being the respective Democratic and Republican presidential nominees; 22 percent are fairly satisfied; and 16 percent are very satisfied.

But there is a party difference here: 56 percent of Democratic primary voters say they're either "very" or "fairly" satisfied with this, versus just 34 percent of Republican primary voters who say this.

The full NBC/WSJ poll -- which was conducted June 14-18 -- will be released at 6:30 pm ET. The margin of error on this question is plus-minus 3.4 percentage points.
