(National Sentinel) Election 2017: Just days after Fox News released an incredible poll purporting to show that the U.S. Senate race in Alabama to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions was a tie, a new survey is painting a far different picture.
According to Birmingham WBRC6’s Rick Journey, the poll shows a 51-40 percent split.
“The survey of 3,000 likely Alabama voters finds Moore receiving 51% support to 40% for Jones,” Journey wrote. “Nine percent remain undecided in the exclusive poll conducted on Monday.”
The new poll comes after Fox News reported that Moore and Jones were tied at about 42 percent apiece in a state President Donald J. Trump won by 28 points.
Strategy Research’s Jon Gray said Jones might have an even more substantial hurdle to overcome than this poll indicates.
“I think the challenge for the Jones campaign is bigger than what these numbers show,” Gray said to WBRC’s Journey. “Even if he were able to close the gap, how do you turn out Democrats in a state that hasn’t had a viable Democratic Party in almost a dozen years?”
Answer: You don’t.
The poll that Fox News published came from a firm loyal to network contributor and serial campaign loser Karl Rove, who hasn’t backed a successful candidate since he managed George W. Bush’s campaign.
Rove is locked in a battle with Breitbart News‘ Steve Bannon, the latter of whom is out to defeat as many RINOs and GOP establishment types as possible and see them replaced with conservative, populist Republicans who will help Trump pass his agenda.
