Moore Up In The Polls 9 Days Ahead Of Alabama Election

The CBS and YouGov poll found that 71 percent of the 1,067 people polled did not find Moore's accusers to be credible. Among white evangelicals, only 16 percent believe Moore made unwanted advances, while 44 percent said he did not and 39 percent are unsure. Like Trump, Moore has not given any ground, instead attempting to poke holes in picayune details surrounding the accusations against him.

Asked who they would vote for "if the election were being held today", 50 percent of likely voters said Jones, and 47 percent said Moore - a margin of a scant three points while a margin of almost 9 points is needed to be statically significant.

When asked on Sunday morning if there should be an investigation into the the more than a dozen women who have come forward to accuse President Donald Trump of sexual harassment assault and misconduct, McConnell said he has jurisdiction over the Senate, not the president.

However, the poll also highlighted a continued division among Alabama voters on the validity of the allegations.

STEPHANOPOULOS: But you are prepared to take action if he is, indeed, elected? One woman alleged she was 14 years old when Moore initiated sexual contact with her. Less than half - 48 percent - said he's the best candidate for the job.

After McConnell said Moore should step aside, Moore tweeted that it was McConnell who should bow out of politics, saying he "has failed conservatives and must be replaced".

Despite a Washington Post poll that found Jones ahead of Moore by 3 points, Moore has been a narrow leader in three other regional polls, including a survey from JMC Analytics and Polling, a Louisiana-based consulting firm, showing him leading the Democrat 49 percent to 44. The incidents would have allegedly occurred when Moore, now 70, was in his 30s.

Among all likely voters, 21 percent believe the allegations against Moore are "definitely true", while 24 percent think they're "probably true".

Senate majority leader says he has looked at "all the options" to prevent Judge Roy Moore from being seated in the U.S. Senate; Mike Emanuel reports from Capitol Hill.
