After three polls were released over the weekend all showing a virtual tie in the Alabama Senate special election, a new Change Research survey (1/9-11; 1,455 AL registered voters) brings a bit better news for embattled former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore (R). According to these results, Moore would lead former US Attorney Doug Jones (D) 44-40%, and 47-43% among those who self-describe as “definite voters.” Of the 1,455 people surveyed, 80.2% said they would definitely vote in the December 12th special election, and another 6.7% said they would “probably” vote. The poll seems methodologically sound, and when factoring in the margin of polling error, all four post-sexual allegation surveys project a toss-up race with just under one month remaining.
