McConnell: 'I'm Going To Let' Voters Decide Moore's Fitness For Office

  • Former Alabama Chief Justice and U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore speaks at a rally Thursday in Dora Ala

On ABC's This Week today, George Stephanopoulos asked McConnell about whether he'll push for Moore to go before the Senate Ethics Committee.

Only 5 percent of Republicans said the allegations are "definitely true", while 12 percent said they're "probably true".

The margin of error is 4.5%. It's another indicator voters might look past sexual misconduct allegations against Moore and put him in office anyway.

Meanwhile, a CBS News/You Gov poll shows that 71 percent of Alabama Republicans believe the allegations against Moore are false, and almost all those believe that Democrats and the media concocted the allegations.

Not surprisingly, women are more likely to find the allegations against Moore to be credible and, in turn, are also more likely to support Jones.

Trump has said Moore says the allegations are untrue, saying, "He denies it". Moore leads among men by 15%.

McConnell said last month he believes the women who have accused Moore. Less than half - 48 percent - said he's the best candidate for the job. The allegations against Moore were first revealed by The Washington Post. Change Research, in an online survey conducted Sunday and Monday, found that Moore led Jones 47 percent to 42 percent. Even so, fifty-three percent of voters said Jones has higher standards of personal moral conduct, compared to 34 percent who said the same about Moore. Since then more women have come forward to complain about Moore.

Thirty-five percent of respondents to the Post's poll said they think Moore did make unwanted advances toward teenage girls, while 37 percent said they were unsure or had no opinion.

The sample of 739 likely voters upon which the poll was based included 38 percent who self-identified as Republicans, 31 percent who identified as Democrats, and 27 percent who identified as independents. Like Trump, Moore has not given any ground, instead attempting to poke holes in picayune details surrounding the accusations against him.
