Roy Moore is tied with his Democratic opponent Doug Jones despite credible accusations of child molestation being leveled against him. Both Moore and Jones are in a statistical 'dead-heat'. Moore's lead over Jones falls into the poll's margin of error.
A new Raycom News Network Senate Election poll conducted by Strategy Research finds the race in a statistical tie nearly two weeks after allegations of sexual misconduct against Republican Roy Moore rocked the campaign. The exclusive poll of 3,000 likely Alabama voters finds if the election were held today, Moore would receive 47% of the vote to Democrat Doug Jones with 45%. Five percent of the respondents remain undecided with 3% indicating plans to Write-In a candidate.
The effect of the allegations are chilling.
When asked “what do you think about the allegations made against Roy Moore,” 45% believe all or some of the allegations; 34% do not believe the allegations; and 21% believe some or all of the allegations, but say it has not changed their vote.
