Montgomery, AL - Embattled Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore led his Democratic opponent by six percentage points in a CBS News poll released on Sunday, with most Alabama Republicans saying the allegations of sexual misconduct against him are false.

Moore was leading Democrat Doug Jones 49 to 43 percent among voters likely to cast ballots in the Dec. 12 special election, CBS said. The contest was even among registered voters, it said.

Republican lawmakers in Washington, including Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, have distanced themselves from Moore and called for him to step down from the race after he was accused by several women of sexual assault and misconduct when they were teenagers and he was in his early 30s. Reuters has not been able to independently verify the allegations.

But McConnell said on Sunday that if Moore is elected, the Senate will swear him in and then the Senate ethics committee would decide whether to investigate the allegations.

“We’ll swear in whoever’s elected and see where we are at that point,” McConnell said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

“We can’t stop him from being seated,” said Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who was also interviewed on CBS. “If there was an (ethics) investigation and all six members of the committee said they believe he was a child molester, that would be a problem.”

According to the CBS poll, 71 percent of Alabama Republicans say the allegations against Moore are false, and believe that Democrats and the media are behind the accusations.

Another poll a day earlier had Jones barely ahead. The Washington Post-Schar School poll said Jones’ support among likely voters stood at 50 percent, versus Moore’s 47 percent.

President Donald Trump originally backed Moore’s opponent in the Republican primary, Senator Luther Strange. But Trump has since defended Moore, noting Moore has denied allegations of sexual misconduct. The president says he does not want Moore’s Democratic opponent to win.

Trump is slated to travel to a rally in Pensacola, Florida on Friday—a city just across the state line from Alabama—just days ahead of the Alabama election. The timing and location gives Trump an opportunity to express support for Moore.

Republicans hold a slim 52-48 majority in the Senate and are eager to maintain their advantage to advance Trump’s legislative agenda on taxes, healthcare and other priorities.

Why is it a break down to morality ? Are the dems more clean ? It seems like immorality runs strong across party lines . It seems like both parties have their fair share .

Furthermore, why is Moore a threat to democracy? And certainly not a threat to judiasm . Nowadays christians are our friends . Moore and Bannon are strong supporters of Israel and Jewish needs .
The threat nowadays ars the Muslims . They are the one targeting us . And it's the young democrates who are boycott anti Israel . I still have some respect for chucky who is from the old school . But yonasonw better rethink his support for the young Bernie dems

No shock there. He was never trailing to begin with. Any authentic poll had him winning this race even when the unsubstantiated rumors were circling

R"L. We've reached a new low. Supposedly religious people debating whether or not intamicy between a 35 year old man in a position of authority and a 14 year old child should disqualify the man from serving in the United States Senate.

Nebach on us, nebach on our children. Electing tax cutting Republicans is now more important to some supposedly religious people than common decency.

What sad times we live in where frum jews will support a candidate of such low morals simply because he's a republican. Then again, they supported a menuval like Trump for the same reason.

Fake news alert

Time to fact check . The president never supported the brother Nazis . He supported the peaceful protestors who were protesting the Lee flag removal . You parse words . He said they were "good and bad" . Good meaning the non
Nazis protestors and bad meaning the nazis .

Second ,I agree that those nazis are no good . In fact I support surpressing their free hate speech . But they are not a threat to Jews . They are simply a bunch of bored low life's who sit and play video games and scream all day . At the end of the day no Jew was ever hurt in the 21 st century from their evil stupidity . Jews have been harmed by Muslims across the globe though

Very well said. In Italian there is a phrase "in petto" meaning even if you don't say it is clearly i understood. At the same is the president's endorsement and support of fascist Britisih group. In 1938 Prince Windsor endorsed and visited Hitler in Berchtesgaden where he was highly welcomed. Britain had a man named Mosley a fascist, pro-Nazi antisemite. recently there were attacks on Jews in Manchester. The Trump lemmings will wait till Jews are attacked in the U.S. One more he moves the embassy and he does not which is the truth. The truth is whatever suits him for moment he blabbeers

You mean his brother Nazis, not the brother Nazis, and he did support them.

He said there were many good people marching the night before the rally. They were all Nazis.

But that means nothing .

There were Muslim extremists , Rev wright etc who supported Obama . And let's not forget sharpton invited to the White House who has yankel rosenbaum blood on his hands for crying to get the Jews in 93.

I am not here to call Obama a Muslim . But just as you see how silly it is to call you Obama a Muslim because of a few fringe extremists who support him the same is true about trump . Presidents especially when they are atypical like Trump and Obama will bring out the fringes of society . Yet it says nothing about the president

That's a lie and fake news .

They were not all nazis at the rally . Many people attended assuming it was simply a protest against the lee removal . When there are large crowds and tumelts people don't see all the signs being waved and were unaware of the nazis hate signs

Please this is not Germany 1938. The current new nazis are just a few mishagoyim bored souls . They pose no threat to Jews . Muslims are our threat . They did it already to Paris Jews and there is no reason that NYC can't turn into Paris . That's far scarier .

That being said I do propose banning Nazis speech . I want to limit any free hate speech that encourages violence no matter how much of a threat it is .

 Dec 04, 2017 at 02:13 PM Nazis are a threat to Jews in the USA Says:

To "Educated" Archy"- You should really be known as the UNEDUCATED Archy. In fact, Nazis have physically harmed Jews in the USA. In 1977, a Nazi sniper opened fire on a St. Louis Shul, killing a Jew leaving a Bar Mitzvah, and wounded at least one other person. The Nazi was finally executed only a few years ago. In 2011, an 89 year old Nazi came into the Holocaust Museum in D.C. with a rifle, and killed a security guard. He was shot by other guards, and eventually died. In 1999, another Nazi came into a JCC in L.A. and shot and seriously wounded several Jews, including a young child. In 2014, a Nazi came to a suburb of Kansas City, and murdered several people at a JCC, and a Jewish nursing home, who he assumed were Jews. He was convicted and sentenced to death. In 1986, another Nazi shot and killed a Chassidic man, in Pittsburgh, who was leaving a Shul; that Nazi convicted, because he bragged about what he did. However, he only received 20 years, because the jury convicted him of a lesser charge. There was a Jewish radio talk show host in Denver, who was deliberated targeted and shot dead by Nazis. The point that I'm making is Nazis are a still a threat to Jews in the USA.

so nazis have killed less than a dozen people in america over 40 years
while muslims have killed over 4000 in america in those 40 years
so who's more dangerous and who is supported by the democratic party and want more of them in in the country

Try reading before commenting.

I wrote that all those who marched the night before the rally, the crown your orange avodah zoreh insisted included many good people, were in fact Nazis.

Let me save you some time here. I'm not a Hilary Clinton fan. I blame her for the mess this administration is making of civil society.

However, if it makes you feel better, let me tell it for you ......BBBBBBBUT BENGHAZZI!!!
