Poll: 37 percent of Alabama evangelicals more likely to vote for Moore after allegations
Posted: Posted November 13th, 2017 by poptart!

Nearly 40 percent of Alabama evangelicals said in a new poll that they are more likely to vote for GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore following allegations of sexual misconduct against him.

A JMC analytics poll found that 37 percent of evangelicals surveyed said the allegations make them more likely to vote for the GOP Senate candidate in the upcoming election.

Just 28 percent said the allegations made them less likely to vote for Moore and 34 percent said the allegations made no difference in their decision.

In all, 29 percent of respondents in the poll said the allegations against Moore would make them more likely to vote for him, compared to 38 percent overall who said the allegations would make them less likely to vote for the candidate.

The poll was conducted on Nov. 9 and Nov. 11 and was based on 575 responses. It has a margin of error of 4.1 percent.

The Washington Post reported last week that a 53-year-old woman accused Moore of initiating sexual contact with her in 1979, when she was 14 and he was 32.

Three other women also said Moore approached them around the same time, when they were between the ages of 16 and 18.

Moore has denied the allegations, saying they are "completely false" and suggesting they are part of a smear campaign.

Several lawmakers have called for Moore to step aside if the allegations are true.
i don't have much to add to this; just wanted to make sure everyone here knows that the right is trash

i would hope that all of those that still support him don't think that the allegations are true and not that they support the alleged behavior

The wording of this post is funny. MORE people are MORE likely to vote for him AFTER allegations? Are you sure those are the right words?

lol if i'm being honest, this entire article is poorly written

What's probably happening is they're thinking "oh this guy is so against the nwo that they're running a smear campaign to discredit him".

Which is fucked up given how many things have actually come out to reveal what a fucking creep this guy is.

But, and I say this as someone who actively tries to avoid sweeping hyperbole in political discourse, it is troubling that Moore was a viable candidate in the first place. A vote for Moore is a vote against the Constitution and the founding ideals that people claim to value. Full stop. He and people like him are an inherent danger to the founding principles. The fact that he was likely to win *before* all this information came out about his character is a bit concerning, to say the least. He's an awful look for the Republican party. Certainly can't pretend to claim to care about the Constitution, individual liberty, and family values if they then turn around and support him.

Silent for 40 years until a month away from an election? Gloria Allred? Red flags of set up everywhere.

While certain individuals have already pre-condemned a man, luckily we have a system where people look into this and make a determination instead of kneejerk speculation

This is kind of dumb, but as Xhin was implying, the left has such a tendency to exaggerate or even make up non stories these days, I wouldn't be surprised if the average Evangelical voter in Alabama thinks these allegations are little more than an orchestrated hit against his career by a fearful democratic establishment faced with eroding clout and knows it may experience complete destruction in the coming years.

Isn't it funny hope before Trump we liked to talk about the Republican party self-destructing but now we're talking about the Democrat party destroying itself instead?

let's wait until after 2018 to start taking about the democratic party destroying itself since polling and the recent elections seem to be saying the opposite

We all know Americans hate both parties. If Bernie runs as an independent, parties will tank. God knows if he can survive that long.
