Here at The Lid, we occasionally kid about the preponderance of candidates who have running for president this cycle despite the fact that being the Boss of the Free World seems love it'south maddeningly frustrating 99.9 % of the time. But our latest NBC/WSJ poll outlines in beautiful stark terms just what a grim task will likely lie ahead for the following president. Majorities of voters declare they can't imagine themselves supporting the three candidates with the best chance at this moment of winning their party'south nomination - Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. (Yes, fans John Kasich and Bernie Sanders, those candidates do distant marginally better, but nearly half of voters still declare they can't picture themselves backing each man.) As our colleague Label Murray writes, both Clinton and Trump have dreary favorability ratings among all voters and have been bruised badly even within their respective party'south typical bases. And it'south worth noting that the two candidates with a net favorabile rating - Kasich and Sanders - would nearly certainly look those numbers fall drastically if they were subjected to the scrutiny that comes with being a frontrunner. In a year of grand uncertainty on both sides of the aisle, the survey gives us at minimum one thing we can probably count on: A very divisive presidency, number matter who holds the work next. So.. Pleased Monday, everybody!

"if it works for me then I'll declare it was a grand process and if it doesn't then I'll probably grumble with Donald."
