Percent of Alabama Republicans Think Roy Moore Allegations Are Made Up

Likely Republican voters overwhelmingly believe the allegations against Mr. Moore are false, according to the CBS poll released Sunday.

The margin of error is 4.5%.

The CBS poll said half of Moore's supporters are backing him because they want a senator who would cast votes for conservative causes, rather than because they think he is the best candidate in the election.

But the most recent RealClearPolitics averaging of polls shows Moore with another 6 percentage-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".

Republican lawmakers in Washington, including Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, have distanced themselves from Moore and called for him to step down from the race after he was accused by several women of sexual assault and misconduct when they were teenagers and he was in his early 30s.

The poll was conducted between November 28 and December 1. So, when a candidate vehemently denies all of the allegations of inappropriate sexual conduct, including misconduct with a 14-year-old, and is supported by a wife who agrees that all of her husband's accusers are liars, that candidate may have a good chance of getting elected. McConnell edged away Sunday from calling for Moore to quit. The allegations against Moore were first revealed by The Washington Post.

However, the poll also highlighted a continued division among Alabama voters on the validity of the allegations.

Moore, who beat incumbent Sen. The Post's poll similarly showed Republicans' disbelief about the allegations, with fewer than one in six Republican-leaning likely voters believing that Moore made unwanted sexual advances against the girls. Perhaps unsurprisingly, women were more likely to find the allegations credible and support Jones than men. Eighty percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents said they trust Moore over Jones on abortion. Like Trump, Moore has not given any ground, instead attempting to poke holes in picayune details surrounding the accusations against him.
