Newest Alabama Senate Polls Are All Over The Map
There have been 5 political polls in the Alabama Senate race since the Washington Post revealed that Republican candidate Roy Moore had sexually assaulted a 14 year-old girl when he was 32 years old (and did the same with other teenagers). Those polls are all over the map.
One has his opponent Doug Jones with a 4 point lead (46% to 42%). A second shows the race tied at 46% to 46%. The other three show Moore still leading with small margins -- 44% to 40%, 48% to 46%, and 51.5% to 48.5% (all within the margin of error).
The election is not until December, and right now, it looks like either candidate could win.
The clear majority of Alabama voters are Republicans and evangelicals -- the so-called "values voters". What will they do on election day? Will they vote for their values or for their prejudices. I hope I'm wrong, but I think it's very likely that they'll vote their prejudices.
