Since when do poor people have nothing? Poor people can have clothing, food, even land/homes.

I agree. I've never liked this riddle, or any variant, because of the absolute meaning implied in the word 'nothing'.

A poor man has something. (ex. clothes, eyes, hair, a shopping cart full of cans, etc...)
A rich man needs something. (air, food, poor people to step on, etc...)

Perhaps you can be poor at a different level?
or in a different way?

In this sense, I think poor is taken not really to literally. It means (in this situation) "a person who has nothing" It's possesive.
