Roy Moore Now Leads by 7 in Latest Alabama Senate Poll

Conservative Republican Roy Moore leads liberal Democrat Doug Jones by seven points in the Alabama U.S. Senate special election that will be held next Tuesday, 50 percent to 43 percent. There were four percent undecided and three percent for write-in candidate Lee Busby, according to a new Raycom News Network/Strategy Research Poll of likely voters released on Tuesday.

“The statewide telephone poll of 3,200 was conducted Monday night between 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.,” WBRC reported, making it the most recently conducted poll of the closely watched and hotly contested race:

Fifty-nine percent identified themselves as typically voting in the Republican primary and 33% identified themselves as typical Democrat primary voters. Eight percent considered themselves as independent or not typically voting in party primaries. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus two percentage points.

The party affiliation of those included in the poll’s sample closely mirrors actual recent voting behavior in Alabama, a state that Donald Trump won by 28 points over Hillary Clinton in 2016, 63 percent to 35 percent.

As Faux Snooze has been reporting:

"The embattled Republican Judge Roy Moore is holding a razor's edge lead over Democrat Doug Jones!"

No bias there! /S

I heard McConnell on the radio this morning. He said if Moore wins, he'll put into motion an ethics investigation.

Welcome to The Swamp, Senator Moore!

This reminds me of the trump election. i Honestly think that the more women that come out with ancient claims at this point, the more it will STRENGTHEN his chances. People are fed up with the games.

I think Faux Snooze might be referring to the RCP average, where Moore +2.3

NO, Fox Snooze is referring to their assumed guilt of Judge Moore.

50% is a big and important number - here’s hoping it’s 5-7 points more than the polls for a landslide....

Just as soon as you release the names relating to the congressional hush fund payouts. These are taxable income so just request copies of the 1099’s.

And dems, who are sacrificing lefties left and right (no pun intended) in the lead up to having hordes of women come out against Trump with nonsense, have been foiled again.

No one here REALLY thinks that TIME and all the other left wing outlets give a damn about harassment or rape.

They are trying and failing MISERABLY to build up a YUGE outcry against this kind of thing so when dems hit Trump with zillions of accusers next year, there will be cries for his head.

Boy they have become AWFUL at feeling out public sentiments and concerns.

I’m fine with an ethics investigation, as long as both Moore and his accusers are put under oath. Get them all under oath.

You would think McConnell would think long and hard about doing this since the tables have turned on so many recently. Skeletons in thy own closet Mr. Rock Thrower McConnell???

Here is my bet......my bet is that a couple of days prior to the election, that a huge shoe will drop for the “Mitt McConnell” crowd....there will be a harassment claim against a Big Fish in the Senate.....either that, or the entire list of settlement claims will be released, forcing Yertle to have to throw many of his people into ethics investigations.........Flood the system!!!!!

We need a few patriots to make anonymous claims that Mitch diddled with a page or something 30 years ago so that the investigation of him can commence.

The smear campaign has not worked. Doug jones has been reduced to now running ads that literally WHINE, "Roy Moore is calling me names!!!"

I am not kidding, his ads actually contain that quote.

Moore will win easily, and by much more than 7 points.

I knew this poll was coming as soon as I saw the latest articles are no longer about beating Moore but instead are doom and gloom "winning will be worse for Republicans" crapfests.

The Steve Bannon & Judge Roy Moore political rally last night in Fairhope, Alabama was a blockbuster with both Bannon & Moore at their absolute best. My prediction, a Moore victory by 10-12 percentage points.

Any voter in Alabama that casts their precious vote for Communist, Baby Killer, Democrat, Doug Jones is either stoned on reefer or, simply not-the-sharpest-knife-in-the-drawer.

Remember, Alabama, POTUS, Trump in Penscola, Florida this coming Friday night for a MAGA/Elect, Judge Roy Moore political rally.

Shucks, I wonder if Democrat, Doug Jones, is going to have Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Clinton, or Al Franken, Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer, John Conyers, Maxine Waters, etc., come down to Alabama to lead a campaign rally for him!!! We all shall see.

I hope that Moore will immediately file civil suits against the accusers for slander....tie them up n court for a very long time.....squeeze every statement out of them that he can......put a stick in Yertle’s spokes for as long as he can until the rest of the corruption in the senate has a chance to reveal itself.

In the meantime, Moore can vote against ProForma recesss and force everyone to keep working through Christmas

It will take only one vote to force everyone to stay

I think his margin is much greater than 7......people do not like to reveal opinions to the vindictive left pollsters

I note you are from Alabama. Several days ago articles claimed the RNC was putting its weight and $$ behind Judge Moore. Have you saw any evidence of this? Advertising paid for by RNC,etc.? Just curious if these reports were true/false. Support from RNC and others long overdue.
