The final Marquette Law School poll before election day that was recently released showed that 46 percent of likely Wisconsin voters preferred Democrat Hillary Clinton while 40 percent supported Republican Donald Trump.
But looking deeper at those numbers, one of the more stunning figures that came out of that survey is that Trump has literally zero support among African-Americans in the Badger State. It seems that Trump’s polling numbers with African-Americans in Wisconsin are very similar to the grade-point average of John Belushi’s famous John "Bluto" Blutarsky character from the classic movie "Animal House": 0.0.
Out of 59 likely African-American voters surveyed in the Marquette poll conducted October 26-31, not one said they have or will vote for Donald Trump. Nationally, Real Clear Politics polling average puts Trump’s African-American support at just 5.6 percent and Clinton’s at 84 percent.
The 0.0 came despite a pitch from Trump at a rally in West Bend, Wisconsin, on Aug. 16 where he reached out to black voters. "To every voter in Milwaukee, to every voter living in every inner city or every forgotten stretch of our society, I am running to offer you a better future," Trump said. "Are you ready for change?"
In a recent speech in Charlotte, North Carolina, Trump also called for a "new deal for black America." "Whether you vote for me or not, I will be your greatest champion. We live in a very divided country, and I will be your greatest champion," he said.
The full sample of the Oct. 26-31 survey from the Marquette Law School Poll comprised 1,401 registered voters interviewed by cell phone or landline, with a margin of error of +/- 3.3 percentage points. Results for likely voters were based on 1,255 respondents, with a margin of error of +/- 3.5 percentage points.
