The Senate Leadership Fund, closely tied to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), released its sponsored Voter Surveys & Consulting poll (8/21-23; 601 AL likely GOP run-off voters) last Friday. Their special Alabama Republican run-off projection displays a much different conclusion than the two previous polls publicized last week. Voter Surveys showed former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore holding leads of close to 20 points over appointed Sen. Luther Strange. In this new survey, Judge Moore continues to hold an advantage, but it is sizably smaller. The VS&C study finds Sen. Strange trailing only 41-45%. Should this latter poll prove most reliable, and it could based upon potential skews in the other two, then the campaign will change greatly in the closing month. The run-off election is scheduled for September 26th.
