Conflicting polls add uncertainty in Alabama Senate race

Election Day in Alabama is Tuesday, and polls show the hotly contested Roy Moore-Doug Jones race could be a blowout. For somebody.

A Fox News poll released Monday shows Jones trouncing controversial former judge Moore, while an Emerson College poll shows the alleged child molester Moore whupping Jones by nine points.

A third poll released Monday by Monmouth University has the race tied at 46% each, with 2% going for write-in candidates and 8% undecided.

All three polls show the amount of undecided voters between 6% and 8% — something the pols and their surrogates were working hard to change.

Roy Moore is a disgrace unfit for the U.S. Senate

Republican Moore was using robocalls from President Trump and holding a rally with ousted White House adviser Stephen Bannon, as Democrat Jones campaigned in a diner and made use of a recorded call from former President Barack Obama.

“This one’s serious,” Obama said, according to CNN. “You can’t sit it out.”

Moore has kept a low profile in the last week of a campaign that’s been hounded by allegations he sexually assaulted underage teenage girls, but granted an interview to a pro-Trump political action committee over the weekend.

The interview, which was posted to YouTube on Sunday, was conducted by a 12-year-old girl, Trump booster Millie March.

Politicians urging Roy Moore to step aside

Several Republicans, including Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake, have spoken out against Moore.

A member of the Republican National Committee resigned Friday over the party’s renewed support for Moore.

Nebraska RNC member Joyce Simmons emailed fellow committee members Monday saying she strongly disagreed with the party’s decision to contribute to his campaign.

“There is much I could say about this situation, but I will defer to this weekend’s comments by Sen. Shelby,” she wrote in the email. “I will miss so many of you that I knew well; and wish I could have continued my service to the national Republican Party that I used to know well.”

Trump records robocall for Roy Moore

On Sunday, Alabama Sen. Richard Shelby, a Republican, told CNN that he could not vote for Moore and his state deserved a better candidate.

The Republican National Committee initially cut off its support for Moore but resumed its efforts on behalf of the candidate after President Trump endorsed him.

Officials at the RNC did not comment.
