A new shock poll obtained by Breitbart news shows Alabama GOP Senate Hopeful Roy Moore clinging to a six-point lead over Democrat Doug Jones, holding the slight advantage after the judge’s recent allegations of inappropriate sexual relationships with minors rocked the highly-watched Congressional race.
“The poll from WT&S Consulting of 11,641 likely voters conducted from November 18 to November 20, with a margin of error of 1.2 percent, has Moore at 46.4 percent—towering six points over Jones, who is stuck down at 40.5 percent—while 13.1 percent are undecided,” writes Breitbart.
“This survey shows Roy Moore tracking down slightly since the allegations were released by the Washington Post but still holding a 5.9 percent lead,” said the pollster behind the survey.
The Alabama Senate race to fill a seat left vacant by Attorney General Jeff Sessions was thrust into the national spotlight this month, when multiple women came forward accusing Roy Moore of pursuing romantic relationships with them while they were teenagers.
The judge vehemently denies the allegations, saying the initial Washington Post article was a political hit job.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other establishment Republicans have urged Moore to drop out of the race, and publicly floated the idea of running the Attorney General as a write-in candidate should the judge step-down.
