Most Alabama Republicans don't believe allegations against Roy Moore

Trump to hold rally near Alabama

Judge Roy Moore and Doug Jones are in a statistical tie, according to a new poll out today from the Washington Post. Forty three percent of those polled said they would vote for Jones while 49 percent will opt for his Republican rival. The error margin is 3.5 points among the sample of 1,110 registered voters and 4.5 points among the sample of 739 likely voters.

President Donald Trump has also said the decision should be up to Alabama voters, discounting the allegations against Moore and saying that electing a Democrat to the seat formerly held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions "would be a disaster".

Roy Moore loses lead after sex misconduct allegations: poll

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. Mr. Kaufman wonders if the allegations about Mr. Moore actually happened, and he blames the "Washington establishment" for using the "same dirty tactics against President Trump during the 2016 election".

The December 12 contest has been roiled by accusations from two women who alleged that Moore, when he was a local prosecutor in early 30s, sexually abused them when they were teenagers, while other women, now also in their 50s, said that Moore pursued them for dates when they were teens. Less than half - 48 percent - said he's the best candidate for the job. McConnell edged away Sunday from calling for Moore to quit. And an Emerson College poll released Tuesday showed 53 percent of likely Alabama voters supported Moore. The allegations against Moore were first revealed by The Washington Post.

Moore, who beat incumbent Sen. Seventeen percent believed the allegations to be true. Perhaps unsurprisingly, women were more likely to find the allegations credible and support Jones than men. No new allegations of sexual misconduct have emerged since around November 15; just this week Moore returned to the campaign trail, after laying low for 11 days.
