Polls Split on Who Is Winning US Senate Race in Alabama

A new poll shows a neck-and-neck race between Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones in Alabama's U.S. Senate special election contest for Attorney General Jeff Session's vacated seat. The error margin is 3.5 points among the sample of 1,110 registered voters and 4.5 points among the sample of 739 likely voters. Moore vehemently denies the allegations. About nine of of ten Republicans who do not believe the allegations also think the media, Democrats, or people seeking attention or money are behind the allegations.
47% of the likely voters are backing Moore, the GOP candidate.
Jones is leading among women polled by 18%.
McConnell on Sunday said it is up to Alabama voters to decide the election and that should Moore win, it would be up to the Senate Ethics Committee to consider the women's accusations.
Moore was leading Democrat Doug Jones 49 to 43 percent among voters likely to cast ballots in the December 12 special election, CBS said.
Still, the most eye-popping statistic from the CBS poll is likely a reliable indicator of the Republican base's mentality: 71 percent of Republican voters don't believe the allegations against Moore are true, despite a preponderance of very credible evidence.
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.
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". After the report, another woman came forward to accuse Moore of sexually assaulting her when she was 16.
Fifty-three percent of Republican voters say they are concerned by the allegations, but say other aspects of the race are more important to them. No new allegations of sexual misconduct have emerged since around November 15; just this week Moore returned to the campaign trail, after laying low for 11 days.

It's never quite been clear what it is that Ohtani wants, but we know that it's not money since his age, 23, limits his contract. The bitter Yankees fan in me hopes Ohtani signs with the Padres so that he becomes absolutely irrelevant.
