Findings from the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll on the 2016 presidential race were revealed on this Sunday’s Meet the Press with some interesting results regarding top concerns among voters.

The poll presented participants with a list of choices — including money in politics, negativity, political dynasties, candidate wealth and no electable independent–and had them decide which concern ranked first in their opinion. Somewhat surprisingly, political dynasties rounded out the bottom of the list with only 4 percent of American voters saying that it was their primary concern.

“Conventional wisdom has been that the names Bush and Clinton are an issue to voters,” said MTP’s Chuck Todd in this week’s segment of #Nerdscreen. “But our poll shows that people are much more worried about how the campaigns conducted and paid for–not who is running.”
