Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore is trailing 12 points behind his Democratic opponent Doug Jones following multiple allegations that Moore had engaged in sexual misconduct with a minor, according to a poll from the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) that was obtained by Politico.
The NRSC poll found that Jones was leading Moore 51 to 39 percent.
The survey also found that Moore’s favorability has dropped to 35 percent from 49 percent in October.
The poll comes just days after the NRSC announced that it was cutting its fundraising ties with Moore’s campaign.
The Hill added:
Past polls conducted by the NRSC, before the allegations, found Moore easily leading by double digits.
Moore has repeatedly denied the allegations, saying he’s staying in the race. But more Republicans including leadership have called on him to withdraw.
NRSC chairman Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) said Moore would be expelled from the Senate if he wins.
