Three new polls for the Alabama special election early this week have not added much clarity to the race. Roy Moore leads by 7% in a survey by Strategy Research, and by 3% in the latest Emerson College poll. On the other hand, Gravis Marketing gives Doug Jones a four-point lead.
The Strategy Research poll was taken Monday evening, after that day's endorsement of Moore by President Trump. It is not known how much of an impact this had on the result.
The overall average of recent polls gives Moore a lead of just under 3%.
The election to fill the Alabama Senate seat will take place on December 12th. Polls are open 7:00AM to 7:00PM local time.
