Who voted in Alabama and why? We’re breaking down exit polls from the special election between Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones for its open US Senate seat.
Most voters casting ballots in Alabama’s special election for U.S. Senate say they decided on their candidate some time ago, according to early exit polling.
Six in 10 made up their minds before November – largely prior to when allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced against Republican candidate Roy Moore.
Still, nearly four in 10 say they made their decision in November or after that, including about one in five who decided this month.
But what is more important is that the support of President Trump changed a lot!
President Trump – who is publicly supporting Roy Moore – seems to be a more important factor to Moore’s voters than those who are voting for Doug Jones.
While nearly six in 10 Moore voters say one reason for their choice is to express support for Mr. Trump, most of Jones’ supporters say the president was not a factor in their decision — either way.
Preliminary exit poll results show stark divides based on race in the US Senate race in Alabama. Nearly 6 in 10 voters for Democrat Doug Jones were black in these preliminary exit polls, but 9 in 10 Moore voters were white.
A slim majority of voters for Moore were white men.
Watch for every Republican up for reelection to be accused of sexual misconduct. It is the NEW RACISM cry since they’ve worn out the race card.
Wake up American voters, don’t fall into that trap.
