McConnell eases stance on Moore, says voters should 'make the call'

McConnell eases stance on Moore, says voters should 'make the call'

A just-released CBS News poll shows a resurgent Roy Moore, with Republican voters ignoring nine courageous women who came forward to tell their stories of alleged child molestation, sexual assault, and pursuit of teenaged girls while the Republican candidate for Alabama's open Senate seat was in his 30's. It has a margin of error of 3.8 percent for the entire sample and 4.8 percent among likely voters. Mr. Kaufman wonders if the allegations about Mr. Moore actually happened, and he blames the "Washington establishment" for using the "same dirty tactics against President Trump during the 2016 election". Seventy-one percent say they don't believe the women who have come forward, compared to 17 percent who say they do.

I write in response to Chris Kaufman's letter published November 26, wherein he acknowledged that "there have been a lot of serious allegations leveled against" Roy Moore, the candidate Chris Kaufman supports, and whom he asserts will be the next USA senator from Alabama.

Moore's opponent is Democrat Doug Jones. A JMC Analytics Poll of 650 registered Alabama voters had Moore with 48 percent support and Jones with 43 percent.

Saturday's Washington Post poll shows the Alabama electorate is divided on the validity of the allegations against Moore, and that some voters still believe those claims are baseless.

Other key Republicans have called for Moore to drop out of the race, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan and two former Republican presidential nominees, Mitt Romney and Senator John McCain. No new allegations of sexual misconduct have emerged since around November 15; just this week Moore returned to the campaign trail, after laying low for 11 days.
