Polls Split on Who Is Winning US Senate Race in Alabama

Polls Split on Who Is Winning US Senate Race in Alabamaā€¯

A just-released CBS News poll shows a resurgent Roy Moore, with Republican voters ignoring nine courageous women who came forward to tell their stories of alleged child molestation, sexual assault, and pursuit of teenaged girls while the Republican candidate for Alabama's open Senate seat was in his 30's.

This blanket denial is contrast to national Republican lawmakers, many of whom disavowed Moore in the days after the initial Washington Post report came out, telling the public that they believed the women who had come forward. Moore vehemently denies the allegations.

Last month, McConnell said he believed several women who have accused Moore of pursuing relationships with them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s, saying he should "step aside".

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".

Stephanopoulos asked him if he thinks Moore should be in the Senate.

The Emerson Poll shows Moore with a six-point lead; JMC Analytics shows Moore with a five-point lead; and WBRC/Strategy Research shows Moore with a two-point lead.

Trump to hold rally near Alabama

President Trump is fully endorsing Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore in one of the most important elections of our lifetime. Less than half - 48 percent - said he's the best candidate for the job.

The sample of 739 likely voters upon which the poll was based included 38 percent who self-identified as Republicans, 31 percent who identified as Democrats, and 27 percent who identified as independents.

The new Washington Post poll is the only one of the four polls included in the latest Real Clear Politics (RCP) Average of Polls (which shows Moore with a 2.5 point lead over Jones) that shows Jones in the lead.

Nine women reportedly have made allegations against Moore.

Moore's campaign has been rocked by multiple accusations of sexual assault and harassment against him.
