Roy Moore loses lead after sex misconduct allegations

And the top reason 52 percent Alabama Republicans gave for sticking with Moore is because they believe he'll cast conservative votes.

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 US senator from Alabama.

Moore now has a six-point lead over Jones, according to the poll.

Indeed, the poll found that Moore has a comfortable six-point lead over his opponent, Democratic candidate Doug Jones, 49 percent to 43 percent, with a margin of error of less than 5 percent.

During an interview on ABC's "This Week", McConnell was asked whether he thinks Moore should be in the Senate. 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".

Donald Trump Will Tee It Up With Tiger Woods And Dustin Johnson
But their is optimism from Woods and his fellow professionals that Woods' latest comeback could see him become a competitor again. The 41-year-old Woods hasn't played a competitive round of golf since the Farmers Insurance Open in January due to a back injury.

Among Republicans who say they don't believe the allegations, 92 percent say Democrats are behind the charges and 88 percent say the media are.

The Fox News Poll sample of 649 likely voters included 48 percent Republicans, 42 percent Democrats, and ten percent independents, which appears to be an unusual oversampling of Democrats and undersampling of Republicans. The allegations against Moore were first revealed by The Washington Post. McConnell edged away Sunday from calling for Moore to quit.

Fifty-three percent of Republican voters say they are concerned by the allegations, but say other aspects of the race are more important to them.

Nine women reportedly have made allegations against Moore.

At the time, he joined a growing number of lawmakers who were calling for Moore to step aside in the race. No new allegations of sexual misconduct have emerged since around November 15; just this week Moore returned to the campaign trail, after laying low for 11 days.
