Roy Moore and Doug Jones deadlocked in Alabama Senate race, new poll shows

Trump to hold rally near Alabama

Likely Republican voters overwhelmingly believe the allegations against Mr. Moore are false, according to the CBS poll released Sunday. Fifty percent of respondents said they support Jones, a former federal prosecutor, while 47 percent said they support Moore, a former Alabama chief judge.

The survey found that allegations against Moore of improper sexual behavior factored heavily in the candidate's declining numbers. The Post said its survey showed that a quarter of voters say moral conduct will be the deciding factor if how they decide to vote, with Jones winning such voters over Moore by a 67-30 margin.

50% of people polled support Jones, the Democrat.

Trump has said Moore says the allegations are untrue, saying, "He denies it". Moore has also said he first noticed his wife, who is 14 years his junior, when she was 15 years old.

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.

The Fox News Poll sample of 649 likely voters included 48 percent Republicans, 42 percent Democrats, and ten percent independents, which appears to be an unusual oversampling of Democrats and undersampling of Republicans. McConnell edged away Sunday from calling for Moore to quit.

After McConnell said Moore should step aside, Moore tweeted that it was McConnell who should bow out of politics, saying he "has failed conservatives and must be replaced".

Moore had a six-point advantage before the Washington Post on November 9 revealed allegations that he had made improper sexual advances on teenage girls in the 1970s when he was in his 30s. Just over half (52%) think there are things more serious to consider than the allegations, and another 21% say the allegations do not concern them at all.

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