The latest JMC Analytics poll on the senate race has Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL) closing in on ex-Chief Justice Roy Moore over the last four weeks.
Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL) is closing in on ex-Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore in the U.S. Senate runoff scheduled for September 26, according to a new poll from JMC Analytics. Strange has made up serious ground in four weeks, narrowing Moore’s lead from +19 points to +8 points.
The poll still has Moore leading, 47-39 with 13 percent of those surveyed “undecided.” But that’s a big difference from Moore’s 51-32 lead from the same firm in August.
It’s been a busy week in the U.S. Senate race in Alabama, where voters go to the polls in a little over a week. Failed candidate Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL), who was dogged by his criticism of Donald Trump throughout the summer primary, endorsed Moore over the weekend.
Strange, meanwhile, is likely to get a turnout and support boost from President Trump. The president announced on Twitter on Saturday that he’ll be traveling to Huntsville, Alabama on Saturday, September 23 to campaign for Strange:
I will be in Huntsville, Alabama, on Saturday night to support Luther Strange for Senate. "Big Luther" is a great guy who gets things done!
