Hillary Clinton bested Donald Trump's ground game operation, an exit poll from late Tuesday afternoon shows.

Seventeen percent of voters said they were contacted by Clinton’s campaign, more than double the amount of voters surveyed (8 percent) contacted by Trump’s campaign, according to a Morning Consult/Politico exit poll, The Hill reports.

The early exit poll found that Clinton, the Democrat, is keeping up with President Obama’s solid ground operation in 2008.

That year, 13 percent of voters said they heard from Obama’s campaign while just 6 percent heard from GOP nominee John McCain’s, according to the National Election Pool.

Other findings from the poll:

• In urban areas, Clinton’s campaign edged out Trump’s 26 to 7 percent; in suburban areas, 14 to 8 percent; and rural areas, 11 to 8 percent.
• Clinton also reached out most to voters between the ages of 18 and 34. She topped her GOP rival's contact among those voters 28 percent to 9 percent, while Trump kept pace with Clinton when contacting voters age 65 and older.
• Clinton’s campaign dominated in contacting minority voters: 37 percent of black voters heard from her campaign compared with 3 percent who were contacted by Trump’s. Among Hispanic voters, the Democratic nominee’s campaign contacted 31 percent, while Trump’s campaign reached out to 9 percent.
• Clinton also holds a small edge in contact with white voters, 11 percent to 8 percent.
The Morning Consult/Politico exit poll surveyed 9,704 early and Election Day voters online. The margin of error was 1 point.
