Trump to hold rally near Alabama
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell changed his tone Sunday on whether he thought Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore should be in the Senate, saying he would "let the people of Alabama make the call" in the state's special election December 12. That is well within the poll's 4.5-point margin of error, but the survey does show that the allegations of sexual misconduct have severely hurt the Republican candidate who was once seen as the favorite to easily win the race. Only 1 in 6 Republicans believe the accusations against Moore. Moore has denied the allegations that he assaulted teenage girls while he was in his 30s and an assistant district attorney.
The CBS pollsaid 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. The Democratic candidate leads by 18 points with women while Moore is ahead by 15 points among men, according to the survey.
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.
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. Since then morewomen have come forward to complain about Moore. Seventeen percent believed the allegations to be true. Even so, fifty-three percent of voters said Jones has higher standards of personal moral conduct, compared to 34 percent who said the same about Moore.
