Polls: Moore in Slight Lead in Alabama Senate Race

Trump to hold rally near Alabama

The Senate GOP's campaign arm and the Republican National Committee have ended their fundraising efforts on behalf of Moore's campaign, multiple Republican Senators have rescinded their endorsements, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) called for the embattled candidate to step aside.

I write in response to Chris Kaufman's letter published November 26, wherein he acknowledged that "there have been a lot of serious allegations leveled against" Roy Moore, the candidate Chris Kaufman supports, and whom he asserts will be the next USA senator from Alabama.

Meanwhile, a CBS News/You Gov poll shows that 71 percent of Alabama Republicans believe the allegations against Moore are false, and almost all those believe that Democrats and the media concocted the allegations.

Moore was leading Democrat Doug Jones 49 to 43 percent among voters likely to cast ballots in the December 12 special election, CBS said.


The survey shows that allegations of improper sexual behavior against Moore, a former Alabama chief justice, hang heavily over a race that would favor a Republican under ordinary circumstances in this deeply conservative state.

George Stephanopoulos asked McConnell.

Mr. Moore, 70, has denied any wrongdoing.

The Fox News Poll sample of 649 likely voters included 48 percent Republicans, 42 percent Democrats, and ten percent independents, which appears to be an unusual oversampling of Democrats and undersampling of Republicans. And an Emerson College poll released Tuesday showed 53 percent of likely Alabama voters supported Moore. Even so, fifty-three percent of voters said Jones has higher standards of personal moral conduct, compared to 34 percent who said the same about Moore. The Post's poll similarly showed Republicans' disbelief about the allegations, with fewer than one in six Republican-leaning likely voters believing that Moore made unwanted sexual advances against the girls. Seventeen percent believed the allegations to be true. After the report, another woman came forward to accuse Moore of sexually assaulting her when she was 16.
