ANDERSON COOPER (HOST): You heard Donald Trump once again ask African-American voters, quote, "What the hell do you have to lose" by voting for him. He said it to a largely white audience in Akron. He has yet to say it to a largely African-American group of listeners. By the numbers, the community is skeptical.

Recent national polling from Pew Research showing just two percent of African-American voters support him. That's consistent with other polls, most of which put his number in the low single digits. Tonight, our Gary Tuchman in Akron, talking to some of the people behind these numbers, including some of the two percent who say they are supporting Donald Trump.

GARY TUCHMAN: A ten-minute drive from Donald Trump's most recent rally takes you to a neighborhood in Akron, Ohio, with the highest percentage of African-Americans in the city. But these are not the kinds of places Trump holds rallies, even as he increasingly talks about African-Americans.
