Though the Alabama Senate race is one of the most important in the country because converting the seat would increase the Republican majority to 54, thus making it much more difficult for Democrats to claim control, it has not attracted much in the way of polling attention.
The University of Auburn at Montgomery, however, just released their new numbers (9/30-10/3; 1,072 AL registered voters; online) and it confirms that former Auburn University head football coach Tommy Tuberville (R) holds a double-digit lead over Sen. Doug Jones (D). The UofA survey finds Mr. Tuberville’s advantage reaching 54-42%.
