Fox News Poll: Moore Down by 8 Points

Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore trails his Democratic opponent Doug Jones by eight points in the latest Fox News poll. The survey found that Moore, who is mired in a sexual misconduct scandal, pulls in just 42 percent among likely voters in the ultraconservative state, while Jones has 50 percent support. Moore has faced calls from his would-be colleagues to step aside from the race amid mounting allegations of sexual impropriety with teenage girls when he was in his 20s and 30s. The Republican National Committee and National Republican Senatorial Committee, the GOP’s campaign arm, have both severed their financial ties with the Moore campaign.
