Alabama Poll: Roy Moore Leads Luther Strange by 13 Points

Sep. 17, 2017

Judge Roy Moore, the conservative candidate in the U.S. Senate GOP primary runoff in Alabama, continues to maintain his commanding lead over the establishment-backed Luther Strange, with a new poll showing the race to be Moore's to lose.

The poll showing Moore with another double digit lead comes as President Donald Trump announced late Saturday he plans to campaign for Strange next weekend, the final Saturday before the all-important runoff election on Sept. 26.

Moore, at 50 percent in the new poll, leads Strange who struggles back at 37 percent. There are 13 percent undecided, and Moore's 13-point lead is well outside the survey's 3.7 percent margin of error.

The survey, conducted Sept. 9 to Sept. 12, polled 700 likely voters and was conducted for pro-Moore PAC, A Time For Choosing--and provided to Breitbart News exclusively.

"Mitch McConnell's gang can put out all the fake news polls they want, but every single independent pollster has shown Roy Moore with at least a ten point lead," a strategist with A Time For Choosing told Breitbart News. "It's not a surprise either: they have to justify to their donors why they're spending millions attacking Roy Moore. They can't go back and ask for more if they admit the truth: Luther Strange is down double digits."

Trump's favorability in the survey is still very high, as 83 percent consider him either somewhat or very favorable and just 15 percent consider him either somewhat or very unfavorable. But his endorsement does not help Strange much.

The poll shows that most people are aware of the fact that Trump has endorsed Strange, and they don't care and won't vote for Strange anyway. Eighty-three percent of respondents were aware that Trump backed Strange, but Moore still has the lead 50 percent to 37 percent.
