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".

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.
