Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump received zero percent support from black and latino voters in Ohio and Pennsylvania, an NBC poll published Thursday said.

Eighty-eight percent of black Ohio voters supported Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Trump earned zero percent, and the other 15 percent were undecided. In Pennsylvania, 91 percent of black voters picked Clinton, while 0 percent chose Trump. The only other state in the poll, Iowa, didn’t poll enough black voters to draw a conclusion.

The NBC poll surveyed 822 voters in Iowa, 848 voters in Ohio, and 829 voters in Pennsylvania. The poll used landline and cell phones from July 5 to July 10. Ten percent of Penn voters and 11 percent of Ohio voters were black resulting in a sample size between 80 and 100 individuals per state.

White voters in Ohio favored Trump by 10 percentage points, 43 to 33 percent. White voters were evenly split in Pennsylvania, with 40 percent choosing each candidate.

Without taking race into account in the poll, NBC has Clinton beating Trump in Iowa 42 to 39 percent. Clinton’s lead increases to 9 points in Pennsylvania, 45 to 36 percent. Voters in Ohio were split on the two candidates, giving each 39 percent. Twenty-one percent of voters said they were undecided.

Trump and Clinton both lost compared to a poll published by NBC in March. Clinton earned 48 percent to Trump’s 42 percent at the time. Clinton’s numbers certainly did worse than Trump’s.

This poll conflicts with a Quinnipiac University poll published Wednesday. That poll has Trump beating Clinton in Ohio 42 to 39 percent, as well as in Pennsylvania 43 to 41 percent.
