Judge Roy Moore holds a commanding lead in the Alabama Senate race and has “united” local Republicans behind him, according to a poll released Tuesday — data that crushes the establishment narrative that Moore is a divisive figure who may botch a winnable election.
The poll, first reported by Politico, was put out in a polling memo by the McConnell-backed Senate Leadership Fund which campaigned vigorously for Moore’s primary rival Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL). But, despite warnings from establishment voices that Moore was too extreme and could cost the GOP a safe seat, the poll shows the exact opposite.
The Axis Research poll shows the race is looking “less and less competitive” and gives Moore a 17-point lead over Democratic challenger Doug Jones.
“Not only is nearly half of the electorate (49%) DEFINITELY voting for Roy Moore, the data shows Moore has united the Republican Party following the Republican primary and the Republican run-off, and earns strong support throughout the conservative coalition,” the memo says.[contentcards url=”http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/10/31/poll-judge-roy-moore-holds-commanding-lead-alabama-united-republicans-behind/” target=”_blank”]
