New polling from Ohio and Pennsylvania show that presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump has no support from the black community in those states.

A Wednesday NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll shows Trump with zero percent of the black support in Ohio, while presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has 88 percent.

On Tuesday, Trump attempted to make the case that he is best suited to address the racial tensions in America. 

He said in an interview with Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly that black protesters “are not necessarily wrong,” and that he could identify with their concerns about unfair treatment. 

Despite not polling well with black voters, Trump still registers good support from white votes. 

In Ohio, the real estate mogul accumulated 43 percent of white support, as opposed to Clinton’s 33 percent; in Pennsylvania the candidates were tied, with 40 percent white support. 

Pew Research Center survey also released Wednesday found that white evangelical voters overwhelmingly back Trump. 

The presumptive GOP nominee has 78 percent support among registered voters who identify as white evangelical Protestants, while Clinton has 17 percent, Pew found.

The former first lady leads Trump by about 4 points nationwide, according to a RealClearPolitics average of polls.

The NBC/WSJ/Marist poll was conducted July 5-10 with 848 registered voters in Ohio and 829 registered voters in Pennsylvania. The margin of error is 3.4 percent.
