After three polls released this week projected former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore (R) regaining the lead over Democratic former US Attorney Doug Jones in their special US Senate campaign, JMC Analytics & Polling distributed their own numbers that confirm the latest results. The new JMC data (11/27-28; 650 AL registered voters; 513 saying they will vote) finds Judge Moore topping Mr. Jones, 48-43%, with the four minor party and independent candidates receiving a combined 4 percent. The remaining respondents report themselves as undecided. The new results reverse the trends revealed in JMC’s 11/9-11 survey that found Jones to be ahead, 48-44%.
The latest numbers might even be better for Moore. The sample includes 56% female respondents, about five percentage points higher than the actual voting universe. Among women, Mr. Jones has a 50-44% lead. Judge Moore is way ahead among men, 54-37%.
