A new poll conducted by JMC Analytics has Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore ahead of his democratic opponent Doug Jones by five percentage points (48-43), per Alabama Local. Earlier this month, JMC had Jones leading Moore by 4 points.
Why it matters:
released this week tell a similar story — that Moore is regaining ground after the outrage from the
allegations of sexual harassment
has cooled down. Based on these findings, JMC concluded that the "sexual misconduct allegations against Moore have not materially impacted the race."
