Most Alabama Republicans don't believe allegations against Roy Moore

One of the accusers, Leigh Corfman, told The Washington Post she was 14 and Mr. Moore was 32 when he touched her over her underpants and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear.

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 US senator from Alabama.

Mr. Moore, 70, has denied any wrongdoing. Fifty percent of respondents said they support Jones, a former federal prosecutor, while 47 percent said they support Moore, a former Alabama chief judge. It has a 3.8 point margin of error for questions based upon the entire sample and a 4.8 point margin of error for likely voters.

But the most recent RealClearPolitics averaging of polls shows Moore with another 6 percentage-point lead.

Moore, a Christian conservative, lost his general election lead to Democratic opponent Doug Jones after the decades-old allegations surfaced in November.

At the time, he joined a growing number of lawmakers who were calling for Moore to step aside in the race.

The poll also finds 58% of all Alabama voters think abortion should be illegal. The Post's poll similarly showed Republicans' disbelief about the allegations, with fewer than one in six Republican-leaning likely voters believing that Moore made unwanted sexual advances against the girls.

Abortion is among the top issues pulling voters toward Moore.

Fifty-three percent of Republican voters say they are concerned by the allegations, but say other aspects of the race are more important to them.

Nationally, Republicans have largely pulled their support for Moore.

McConnell, R-Ky., said Sunday he believed the Senate Ethics Committee would take up an investigation if Moore is elected, but that it'll be up to that panel to decide how it wants to proceed.
