    In this Sept. 17, 2016, file photo, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks during a campaign in Colorado Springs. A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows that nearly 70 percent of American voters have concerns about the candidate's controversial comments about certain groups.

    In a new national NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, 69 percent of registered voters said they are concerned by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's comments and language in regard to women, immigrants and Muslims, NBC News reported.

    More than half of that group said they have "major" concerns about those issues, according to NBC News.

    By comparison, nearly as many — 64 percent of registered voters — said they have concerns about Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.

    Thirty-three percent of those polled said that Trump's temperament concerns them the most about him; 36 percent said that the issue about Clinton that concerns them the most is her judgment when it comes to dealing with Syria, Iraq and Libya.
