A new opinion poll shows that US Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has absolutely no popularity among African-American people in the run-up to the 2016 US presidential race.
According to the poll conducted by Public Policy Polling and released on Tuesday, the New York businessman’s favorability rating among black voters stands at zero percent, while in a separate poll earlier this month US Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton enjoyed an indisputably colossal lead with 91 percent of black support.
Much to Trump’s chagrin, the voters even preferred things such as bedbugs, junk mail, carnies, bubonic plague and middle airplane seats to the real estate mogul. The Tuesday poll was carried out from August 26 to 28 and had a 3-percentage-point margin of error.
In the most recent national poll, the former secretary of state is popular among 85 percent of self-identified Democratic voters, while Trump has the support of 78 percent of Republicans, while 37 percent of independent voters support the former first lady and 32 percent back her rival. Both Trump and Clinton are currently among the worst-rated presidential candidates of the last 70 years.
