AL Senate Polls

Via  Doug Jones takes lead on Roy Moore in new Senate poll.

Louisiana-based JMC Analytics conducted the poll after allegations of sexual misconduct by Moore were reported by The Washington Post.

The poll had Jones received 46 percent support in the poll to Moore’s 42 percent. With a margin of error of 4 percent, however, the race is essentially a statistical tie.

The poll also had 9 percent of participants declaring themselves undecided.

The election is Dec. 12 — one month from today.

It’s the second poll since the allegations came out that reveals a loss of support for Moore. A Decision Desk HQ/Opinion Savvy poll released Friday had the race tied 46-46.

Meanwhile, three other polls conducted after The Post allegations had Moore with slight leads but all acknowledged that his chance of winning was dwindling.

    Still a lot of time to rationalize that a perv who is a Republican is better than any candidate who is not.

    @Just ‘nutha ig’nint cracker:

    True, but there’s also a lot of time for squishy conservatives–Luther Strange voters–to think “You know polls show my other fellow Republicans are starting to flock to Jones. Perhaps I should take another look…”

    As everyone usually caveats, the race is still Moore’s to win, and you won’t go broke betting on the GOP’s depravity. But all that said, signs are starting to look good for Jones.
