Polls Split on Who Is Winning US Senate Race in Alabama


McConnell was initially among several national Republicans to urge Moore, who faces Democrat Doug Jones in a December 12 special election, to drop out of the race after multiple women accused Moore of inappropriate sexual conduct decades ago, when he was in his early 30s and they were as young as 14. It has a 3.8 point margin of error for questions based upon the entire sample and a 4.8 point margin of error for likely voters. Moore vehemently denies the allegations.

The CBS poll said half of Moore's supporters are backing him because they want a senator who would cast votes for conservative causes, rather than because they think he is the best candidate in the election.

Republican lawmakers in Washington, including Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, have distanced themselves from Moore and called for him to step down from the race after he was accused by several women of sexual assault and misconduct when they were teenagers and he was in his early 30s.

Saturday's Washington Post poll shows the Alabama electorate is divided on the validity of the allegations against Moore, and that some voters still believe those claims are baseless.

A new poll revealed Moore holds a steady lead ahead of Alabama's special election.

The accusations against Moore are much more serious than those against Trump, and, because of his long history as a divisive figure in Alabama, he was already facing a possibly-competitive race before the allegations came out.

The Washington Post says only 35% of likely voters polled say they believe Moore made unwanted sexual advances on teen girls four decades ago. 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.

"You can make the argument that Republican voters who supported Trump are coming home to Roy Moore now", John Couvillon, a JMC pollster, told Politico.
