Democratic candidate Doug Jones boasts a 10-point lead over Roy Moore, his Republican counterpart, in the race for Alabama’s vacant Senate seat, according to a new poll.
Fifty percent of Alabama’s likely voters said they would pick Jones if their state’s election occurred today in the Fox News survey released Monday.
Forty percent said they would select Moore instead, while 2 percent would vote for “someone else/other” and 8 percent were uncertain.
Thirty-nine percent said they believe the sexual misconduct allegations against Moore are true, while 33 percent reject that premise.
Four percent said it was “too soon to say” whether the accusations were credible, while 23 percent were unsure.
Forty-eight percent said that “supporting a candidate with a strong moral character” is the deciding factor in their vote.
Thirty-three percent said it was “supporting a candidate who will vote the way you would vote in the U.S. Senate” instead.
Fourteen percent ranked both qualities equally, while 1 percent said neither and 3 percent did not know.
Monday’s findings come one day before Alabama’s voters head to their polls and pick a replacement for the Senate seat once occupied by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
The Fox News poll’s results are a far cry from the latest RealClearPolitics average of polls, which has Moore leading Jones by 2.5 points in Alabama.
Alabama’s latest Senate race has grabbed national attention due to the sexual misconduct allegations swirling around Moore.
Multiple women have accused Moore of making sexual advances upon them when he was in his 30s and they were teenagers, including one who alleges he did so when she was 14.
Trump has since thrown his support behind Moore despite the claims, which have been denounced by several top Republicans.
Moore has steadfastly denied the allegations against him, and he accused them of being politically motivated.
Fox News conducted its latest survey of 1,127 likely voters in Alabama via cell and landline telephone interviews from Dec. 7-10. It has a 3 percent of margin of error.
