There are a lot of phony media polls out there oversampling Democrats in a heavy Republican state like Alabama showing the race between Roy Moore and liberal snake Doug Jones as being close. A few weeks ago, a Fox News poll showed the race tied by heavily oversampling Democrats. That was the first salvo in the attempt to smear Roy Moore that lead to this past week’s smear campaign. But even after the wall to wall media coverage of what Roy Moore has been accused of in the 1970’s, two new polls show that people in Alabama aren’t buying the liberal media or GOPe bullshit.

The first survey, which was conducted entirely before noon local time on Thursday, shows Moore leading Jones by 50 percent to 39.2 percent with 10.8 percent undecided. That survey of 1,354 likely voters in the upcoming Dec. 12 special election has a margin of error of 3.5 percent.
The second survey, conducted Saturday evening—two days after the Post piece hit, roiling Alabama’s political scene—shows Moore and Jones with about the exact same percentages as before. Moore’s position in this second poll is 49.8 percent—meaning he only dropped 0.2 percent since the story hit—and Jones has only picked up 0.4 percent to reach 39.6 percent total. The second survey, which polled 1,536 likely voters with a margin of error of 3.3 percent, has 10.5 percent as undecided.
“The polling between Thursday morning and Saturday showed far less movement than I originally expected,” pollster John Wahl told Breitbart News. “The controversy surrounding the Washington Post article seems to have galvanized the support of both candidates, but not changed the actual percentages in a significant manner. The Moore campaign has already weathered a considerable amount of political attacks during this campaign season, and I expect most of his lightest support to have blown off during these attacks. His current support level is holding fairly steady.”
