As Alabama’s special election for United States Senate draws closer, tension is rising between candidates Democrat Doug Jones and Republican Roy Moore.
According to a poll conducted by Change Research, Roy Moore now has a four point lead over opponent Doug Jones. this is an important development as just a couple of weeks ago, Moore lost his double digit lead over Jones according to a poll conducted by the National Republican Party.
Jones took a 12 point lead over Moore a day or two after the Washington Post published a story with accusation of sexual misconduct from decades ago.
“The truth is, this is not really odd at all.This is simply dirty politics, and it’s a sign of immorality. It’s a sign of the immorality of our time,” Moore said about the accusation.
Alabama’s special election for United States Senate is Dec. 12, 2017. Polls open at 7 a.m.
