Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore rides to poll on horseback

Doug-Jones

"I think the Republican party can do better". The people of Alabama are great, and the Republicans will have another shot at this seat in a very short period of time.

"He's not a truthful man", 69-year-old Mary Multrie said of Moore.

But with a month left in the campaign, the Washington Post reported on the stories of four women who accused Moore of preying on them as teenagers, including one woman who said she was 14 at the time, when Moore was a prosecutor in his 30s.

While almost six in 10 Moore voters say one reason for their choice is to express support for Mr. Trump, most of Jones' supporters say the president was not a factor in their decision - either way.

A number of Republicans declined to support him, including Alabama's long-serving Sen. "We don't need a pedophile in there", Brown added.

Becky Gerritson, the leader of a nearby tea party group, says sexual misconduct allegations against Moore have caused his supporters to rally around him harder. Still, almost four in 10 say they made their decision in November or after that, including about one in five who decided this month.

While Moore denied the allegations against him, calling his female accusers politically motivated liars, dozens of prominent Republicans, including House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, said they believed the allegations and called on Moore to abandon the race. Most Jones voters believe the allegations, while most of Moore's supporters do not. "He talks about God, but you don't see God in his actions".

It all takes place amid a broader national conversation about sexual misconduct.

Slightly more Alabama voters do prefer the U.S. Senate be controlled by the Republican party than by the Democratic party. In 2016, President Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton by a 62-34 margin. Yet Moore had political baggage that repelled some moderate Republicans even before allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced.

Mobile County in southwest Alabama, tends to vote Republican, but in 2012, voted against Moore for Chief Justice, as did Madison County in the far north, where Huntsville is located.

In his final pitch before polls opened across the state, Jones called the choice a "crossroads" and asked that "decency" prevail. We've lagged behind in health care.
