Donald Trump does not just trail Hillary Clinton among black voters-- A new FiveThirtyEight analysis shows that the New York businessman trails Clinton, Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein in support from black voters. 

Overall, Trump has just 2 percent support from black voters. Clinton has 86 percent, followed by Stein at 5 percent and Johnson at 4 percent.

FiveThirtyEight averages four surveys taken since last month's conventions, including an ABC News/Washington Post poll that shows Clinton with 83 percent support among black voters. 

Black voters are expected to account for more than 10 percent of the voting population in November's presidential election.
