A new poll out today indicates that pro-life Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore leads his pro-abortion Democrat opponent Doug Jones.

As has profiled, Moore is strongly pro-life and would vote to both defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business as well as overturn Roe v.Wade. Jones on the other hand is a strong supporter of abortion, including late-term abortions.

Alabama voters are increasingly skeptical of the accusations against GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore, according to new polling released this week that also shows Mr. Moore has recovered his lead in the race.

In the middle of November Mr. Moore had lost his lead in the Change Research survey of voters, but is once again back on top in a survey Monday with a 49-44 advantage, the polling company said.

Perhaps most striking is that Republicans are growing more skeptical of the accusations …  Moore denies the accusations, which were first made in The Washington Post, and has since characterized his race as a chance for voters to strike back at the political establishment.

It appears to be working.

The margin among voters who believe the allegations versus disbelieve them stands at 42-38, or almost even. Just 10 days ago, the margin was 46-30 in favor of the believers, the poll found.

An Emerson College poll released Tuesday also found Mr. Moore with a lead of 50-44.

Moore is on the pro-life side, while Democrat Doug Jones holds some radical positions on abortion and other issues that are out of touch with most voters.

Moore highlighted his pro-life views yesterday.

“As far as abortion, I will not fund Planned Parenthood. And I will work to overturn Roe v. Wade. In my opinion, Roe v. Wade is not fixed precedent, it’s an unconstitutional decision just like Dred Scott was in 1857,” Moore said during a rally Monday in Hengar.

KTSA reports Moore described the killing of unborn babies in abortions and other issues as the “immorality of our time.”
