Likely Republican voters overwhelmingly believe the allegations against Mr. Moore are false, according to the CBS poll released Sunday. It has a margin of error of 3.8 percent for the entire sample and 4.8 percent among likely voters. After a week of plummeting numbers, Moore appeared to have rebounded with voters from several allegations that he had engaged in sexual relationships with teenage girls, including one who was 14.
Another poll a day earlier had Jones barely ahead.
CHP To Increase Patrol For Thanksgiving Weekend
There were 1,331 crashes during the Thanksgiving holiday a year ago in Kentucky, resulting in 366 injuries and five fatalities. But that's nothing compared to what's expected starting Wednesday when the Thanksgiving travel period begins.
The poll shows seven out of 10 Republicans (71%) think the allegations against Moore are false. Mr. Kaufman wonders if the allegations about Mr. Moore actually happened, and he blames the "Washington establishment" for using the "same dirty tactics against President Trump during the 2016 election". Moore leads among men by 15%.
The CBS News poll surveyed 1,067 registered voters in Alabama from November 28 to December 1. Less than half - 48 percent - said he's the best candidate for the job.

Real Clear Politics now has Moore up 2.5 points in its polling average, but the truth is that with most national polling outfits staying away, the unusual timing of the election, and the general shakiness of state surveys, nobody really knows what's going to happen next Tuesday.
Saturday's Washington Post poll shows the Alabama electorate is divided on the validity of the allegations against Moore, and that some voters still believe those claims are baseless. Even so, fifty-three percent of voters said Jones has higher standards of personal moral conduct, compared to 34 percent who said the same about Moore.

However, the poll also highlighted a continued division among Alabama voters on the validity of the allegations. Seventeen percent believed the allegations to be true. Since then more women have come forward to complain about Moore. Like Trump, Moore has not given any ground, instead attempting to poke holes in picayune details surrounding the accusations against him.
