    The Democratic and Republican parties and their presumptive presidential nominees continue to be significantly unpopular with voters, in some cases more so than institutions like the NRA and Planned Parenthood, a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows.

    Donald Trump was viewed unfavorably by 60 percent of the electorate, while only 29 percent offered a positive rating of the GOP standard-bearer. Hillary Clinton received a 33 percent favorable rating, compared to a 55 percent negative rating.

    By comparison, 48 percent of Americans viewed Planned Parenthood favorably, while 29 percent gave the women's health and abortion rights group poor ratings. Forty-two percent of voters saw the National Rifle Association in a positive light, while 36 percent disagreed.

    President Barack Obama's favorability stood at 48 percent positive and 41 percent negative.
