    US: Clinton and Trump fail to impress black voters

    Nov.8, NY: In the 11th hour of the presidential campaign, the candidates, criss-crossing the crucial swing states, both appealed to the same voting group: African Americans.

    Hillary Clinton, speaking in a Northwest Philadelphia church on Sunday, told black voters that the election is a choice between "hope and fear".

    "This election is about doing everything we can to stop a movement to destroy President Obama's legacy," she said.

    Her campaign is seeking to boost turnout of African-American voters, which has slipped since they voted in record numbers to elect Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012.

    According to a November 2 aggregation of five national polls, Clinton commands 83.3 percent of the black vote, against Trump's 4.3 percent.

    The numbers did not discourage Trump from making a last appeal to African Americans in Florida on Saturday, asking them to vote for him with the question: "What the hell do you have to lose?"
