Despite multiple allegations of sexual improprieties with minors, Republican candidate Roy Moore is besting his Democratic opponent Doug Jones in the Alabama race for Senate. Recent polling shows that Moore is up 5 points over Jones heading into the final two weeks of the contest.
The JMC Analytics poll, conducted Monday and Tuesday, found 48 percent of voters support Moore, compared to 43 percent who support Jones. A previous JMC poll had Jones up 5 points, so the new survey appears to indicate Moore's candidacy is on the rebound.
Moore stand accused of sexual misconduct by several women, all of whom were teenagers at the time of the incidents.
In the wake of the allegations against Moore, 29 percent of voters said they are more likely to support the candidate, while 38 percent said they are less likely to support him. Another 34 percent said the allegations did not make a difference.
