Donald Trump's support among African-American voters has plunged to a new low -- and the New York Daily News wanted to make sure the Republican presidential candidate knew it:
According to the Quinnipiac University poll, just 1 percent of African-American voters supported Trump. That was well behind the 6 percent of the black vote that went to Mitt Romney in 2012, and the 4 percent that supported John McCain in 2008, the newspaper reported.
In contrast, his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, received 91 percent support from African-American voters, the poll found.
Ironically Trump touted the poll on Twitter as it revealed a tightening race overall, with him just 2 points behind Clinton. However, the most recent HuffPollster model -- which tracked major polls and included the new Quinnipiac results -- showed Clinton with a bigger lead, 45.6 percent to Trump's 38.8 percent.
