Can Trump still reach out to black voters?

Donald Trump's outreach to black voters is not going so well.

In fact, Trump's black outreach is going so badly that he's in fourth place among black voters in a four-way race, behind Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson and the Green Party's Jill Stein, according to a Suffolk University/USA Today poll released Thursday.

In a four-way race, just 2% of black voters nationally choose Trump, according to the survey. In that same scenario, Hillary Clinton garners a massive 87% of the black vote.

In a two-way contest between Clinton and Trump, Clinton receives 92% of the black vote nationally to Trump's 4%, according to the survey.

In recent weeks, Trump has attempted to reach out to black voters, calling Clinton a "bigot" who panders to black voters but will not deliver. In his words, Trump's asked black voters "what do you have to lose" in voting for Trump.

But that message — which Trump delivered to all-white crowds in majority-white communities — has not resonated with African-American voters, according to the Suffolk/USA Today poll.

Clinton's campaign released a television ad that answered Trump's rhetorical question, saying minorities have "everything" to lose if Trump is elected.

Clinton has also worked overtime to paint Trump as a man who cozies up to white supremacists and racist leaders such as David Duke — devoting an entire speech to the alt-right, a de-facto white supremacist movement that's cheered on Trump's presidency.

Similarly, since beginning his outreach, Trump stepped on his own message by pandering to black voters in the wake of the tragic shooting death of NBA star Dwyane Wade's cousin, Nykea Aldridge.

After Aldridge was shot and killed walking down the street, Trump seemed to congratulate himself in a tweet on predicting deaths like Aldridge.
