Republican voters don't believe accusations against Roy Moore

Former Alabama Chief Justice and U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore speaks at a campaign rally in Dora Ala. Federal fundraising reports released Friday Dec. 1 reveal that Moore is losing the battle for campaign cash to Democrat Doug Jones. And he's losin

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.

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. Mr. Kaufman wonders if the allegations about Mr. Moore actually happened, and he blames the "Washington establishment" for using the "same dirty tactics against President Trump during the 2016 election". Only 2 percent said they're "definitely false" and 5 percent said they're "probably false", while 7 percent said they don't have an opinion.

The survey found that allegations against Moore of improper sexual behavior factored heavily in the candidate's declining numbers.

President Trump cited Democrat refusal on tax reform as the main reason to have Moore in the Senate.

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. Eighty percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents said they trust Moore over Jones on abortion.

McConnell, R-Ky., said Sunday he believed the Senate Ethics Committee would take up an investigation if Moore is elected, but that it'll be up to that panel to decide how it wants to proceed.

The Emerson Poll shows Moore with a six-point lead; JMC Analytics shows Moore with a five-point lead; and WBRC/Strategy Research shows Moore with a two-point lead. Perhaps unsurprisingly, women were more likely to find the allegations credible and support Jones than men.

The poll was conducted between November 28 and December 1.

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