There Must Be Weeping and Gnashing of Teeth in Democrat Circles Right Now

Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore holds a 10-point lead over his Democratic opponent, according to a new poll.
The Emerson College survey found that Moore has the support of 55 percent of the Alabama voters polled, compared to 45 percent for the Democratic nominee, Doug Jones.
The poll was conducted from Nov. 9 to Nov. 11, after The Washington Post published its report in which a woman accused Moore of initiating sexual contact with her in 1979, when she was 14 and he was 32.
The poll does show improvement for Jones from the last survey conducted in September. That survey gave Moore a 22-point advantage.
The poll also found that President Trump has a positive approval rating in Alabama, with 58 percent approving and 36 percent disapproving of him.
I have been skeptical of these accusations because Moore has been a divisive figure in Alabama politics for decades and none of these claims appeared until after the Republican primary.  Before the primary, it  might have put a RINO up against a Democrat.  Afterwards, it would seem to make the Democrat a shoe-in.  It appears that Alabamians are not buying the claims.  I rather doubt that they would support him if they believed them to be true.
