New Alabama Poll Just Ruined Roy Moore’s Week
Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore got more bad news Tuesday after a new poll revealed he’s trailing his Democratic opponent in the Alabama Senate race by 4 points.
In the new survey, conducted by Big League-Gravis, Doug Jones has 48 percent support in the race, while Moore has 44 percent support.
The recent poll also found 42 percent of respondents said they believed the allegations of sexual misconduct involving teenagers that have been levied against Moore.
About one-third of respondents, 34 percent, said they don’t believe the allegations, while 24 percent were undecided.
The poll stands out from other surveys of the race, which generally show Moore rebuilding his lead over Jones in the heavily Republican state.
The poll was conducted after Trump threw his support behind Moore last week.
Moore has faced harsh criticism after The Washington Post reported last month that a woman accused Moore of initiating a sexual encounter with her when she was 14 and he was 32. Multiple other women have also come forward with allegations against Moore.
