Alabama voters split on allegations

Voters have decided on the allegations against Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, per preliminary exit poll results but 55 percent say they’re a minor factor or not a factor at all in their decision.
Trump manages only 48-48 percent approval-disapproval among voters in deep-red Alabama.
(About:Alabama is a southeastern U.S. state that’s home to significant landmarks from the American Civil Rights Movement. The city of Birmingham’s 16th Street Baptist Church, now a museum, was a protest headquarters in the 1960s. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s church and the Rosa Parks Museum, dedicated to the activist, can be found in the capital of Montgomery.)

And those who “strongly” disapprove of the president’s work in office out number strong approver’s by 9 points, 41 percent to 32 percent.

Reflecting the party’s built-in advantage in Alabama, more voters in the state want the Republican Party to be in control of the Senate than the Democratic Party, by 51-43 percent.

Read the full story below:

In what would otherwise be a cakewalk for the Republican candidate, preliminary exit poll results in Alabama’s special election for the Senate seat once held by current Attorney General Jeff Sessions show how allegations of sexual misconduct against Republican Roy Moore have complicated his contest against Democrat Doug Jones.

On the overwhelming issue of the election, voters are closely split on the allegations against Moore. Forty-nine percent think they are definitely or probably true, vs. 45 percent who think they are definitely or probably false. That said, 40 percent say these allegations are at least one of several important factors in their vote; a majority, 55 percent, says they’re a minor factor, or not a factor at all.

More say the allegations against Moore are “definitely true” than “definitely false,” 26 vs. 16 percent.

Jones is seen favorably by slightly more voters than Moore — 49 vs. 42 percent — and they’re about even on shared values — 49 percent say Jones shares their values, 46 percent say the same for Moore. Notably, the GOP and the Democratic Party run evenly in favour in this typically deep red state, 43 vs. 44 percent.

Independents are another key group to watch. Accounting for 20 percent of voters, they see Moore unfavorably by a vast 39-point margin, 30-69 percent, favorable-unfavorable. Independents see Jones favorably, by contrast, by 11 points, 54-43 percent.

Reflecting the party’s built-in advantage in Alabama, more voters in the state want the Republican Party to be in control of the Senate than the Democratic Party, by 51-43 percent.

Further, 10 percent of voters say they decided on their choice in the last few days, 9 percent earlier in December and 20 percent in November. That means that most, 60 percent, say they made their choice before November, which is before the allegations against Moore surfaced.

Trump, who endorsed the controversial Moore, looms large. He held only 36 and 40 percent job approval ratings among voters in New Jersey and Virginia’s gubernatorial elections in November, both won by Democrats, and he’s at about 37 percent nationally in recent polls, a historic low. Among Alabama voters today, by contrast, his approval stands at 48 percent in preliminary exit poll results. Further, 29 percent say one reason for their vote today was to show support for Trump, vs. 20 percent who say it was to express opposition to him. A plurality, 48 percent, say Trump didn’t factor into their vote.

Twenty-nine percent of Alabama voters say one reason for their vote was to show support for Trump, per preliminary exit poll results, while 20 percent wanted to express opposition.

These are preliminary exit poll results. Results may change as more data become available and as results are adjusted to reflect the actual vote as it becomes available. Vote preference results among groups will be reported after the polls close at 8 p.m. ET.

Turnout among evangelical white Christians is critically important for Moore. They account for 43 percent of voters in tonight’s preliminary exit poll results, compared with 47 percent in the 2012
