McConnell: 'I'm Going To Let' Voters Decide Moore's Fitness For Office

Roy Moore and Doug Jones deadlocked in Alabama Senate race, new poll shows

Trump to hold rally near Alabama

If Moore loses the election, the Republican majority in the Senate will narrow to 51-49. It has a 3.8 point margin of error for questions based upon the entire sample and a 4.8 point margin of error for likely voters.

I write in response to Chris Kaufman's letter published November 26, wherein he acknowledged that "there have been a lot of serious allegations leveled against" Roy Moore, the candidate Chris Kaufman supports, and whom he asserts will be the next USA senator from Alabama.

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. 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".


The poll also found 71 percent of Alabama Republicans believe the allegations of misconduct against Moore are completely false.

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.

Less than half of Mr. Moore's supporters, 48 percent, say they're voting for him because he's the "best person for the job". One of the accusers, Leigh Corfman, told The Washington Post she was 14 and Mr. Moore was 32 when he touched her over her underpants and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear.


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".

Three late-November polls, however, show Moore leading Jones.

The Washington Post says only 35% of likely voters polled say they believe Moore made unwanted sexual advances on teen girls four decades ago. After the report, another woman came forward to accuse Moore of sexually assaulting her when she was 16.
