According To The Polls
Will Alabama’s young voters pull for Roy Moore or Doug Jones?
In a Monday poll by The Hill, Jones and Moore are neck and neck.
The poll, conducted by Strategy Research for the Montgomery-based Raycom News Network, shows Moore receiving 47 percent of the vote, with Jones at 45 percent. Five percent of respondents were undecided, while 3 percent said they plan to cast their ballots for write-in candidates.
An earlier poll by Fox News placed Jones one point ahead of Moore.
