Breaking…Fox poll shows Democrat Doug Jones with a TEN POINT lead over Republican Roy Moore in Alabama Senate Race…

Oh Snap!….

This poll was done from Dec 7th to the 10th….

It’s results point to observations reported over the last week by several pundit’s that question the polling samples that have been done by smaller outfits….

In addition?

It has become apparent that Jones is gaining support among black and young white higher educated voters thru out the state….

The Democratic vote is united…The Republican vote seems split….

Roy Moore has NOT been out campaigning and adding Donald Trump to the equation maybe told after the vote as a mistake…

The actual vote tomorrow is anyone’s guess….But Democrats have to be in a better mood going into the vote….

Now we’ll see who actually votes…

Democrat Doug Jones holds a 10-point lead over Republican Roy Moore among likely voters in deep red Alabama.

Greater party loyalty plus higher interest in the election among Democrats combined with more enthusiasm among Jones supporters gives him the advantage in the race to fill the U.S. senate seat previously held by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

That’s according to a Fox News Poll of Alabama voters conducted Thursday through Sunday using traditional polling techniques, including a list-based probability sample with both landlines and cellphones.

Jones receives 50 percent to Moore’s 40 percent, with 1-in-10 undecided (8 percent) or supporting another candidate (2 percent) — which could make a difference Tuesday.  That’s even truer with such an unconventional election with unconventional candidates.

This race’s uniqueness is significant.  It is impossible to know who will show up to vote in a special election to fill a seat in the middle of a term in an off-year.  And it’s December, a time when people expect to be going to the shopping mall, not the voting booth.

On top of that, accusations of sexual misconduct against Moore emerged November 9.  That’s just a month before the December 12 election.  Since then, he has repeatedly denied the allegations, and after the GOP initially pulled its support, the party ultimately backed Moore.

By a 6-point margin, Alabama voters believe the allegations against Moore are true (39-33 percent).  They were more evenly divided last month, believing the accusations by just 1 point (38-37 percent).  About one quarter, 27 percent, feel it is too soon to say or have no opinion.

Among Republicans, 13 percent believe the accusations are true, 60 percent say they aren’t, and 26 percent are unsure.  In November, it was 13-62 percent (26 percent unsure)….

This IS a Fox News poll folks….(The Fox News Poll is conducted under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R).)

Alabama Republicans…Stay home if ya want to…don’t vote for Roy Moore or Doug Jones…Red State

…by Carl Arbogast @ Red State…

Whatever the case may be, no reason exists to vote for Doug Jones. The notion that staying home “is not good enough” comes only from Democrats who want to shame you into voting for their guy. But why on earth would people vote for the person who upholds ideals and supports policies that are a 180-degree departure from their own? That’s crazy talk.

Doug Jones is a liberal. And yes, a Democrat winning in Alabama would be a significant setback for the GOP in advancing a legislative agenda in Congress.

Well, that’s too bad. 

Too many Republicans have made their bed, and now they have to lie in it. Of course, Moore could still win which means Republicans would have the votes they need but would also have to answer for every goofball thing Moore ever said and will have to answer questions regarding the accusations over Moore’s dark past.

That said, don’t allow yourself to be bullied into a voting for a liberal Democrat. It’s not necessary. Stay home if you have to. But don’t sacrifice your ideals for political expediency…..
