NEW POLL: MOORE WITH COMMANDING LEAD OVER STRANGE

Montgomery, AL- The first poll conducted since the Alabama Senate primary shows Judge Roy Moore with a commanding lead over incumbent senator Luther Strange. The JMC Analytics poll conducted between August 17-19 among likely Republican voters found that in the upcoming runoff Judge Moore leads 51%-32%, with 17% of voters still undecided.

In his analysis of the data, JMC Analytics pollster John Couvillon wrote "The support of the defeated primary candidates has initially moved to Moore: not only did those supporting the 'also rans' say they support Moore 51-26%, but (to use a readily apparent example), 'Mo' Brooks' Huntsville base has largely realigned itself with Moore, where he has a 52-29% lead."

"The numbers speak for themselves," said Moore campaign chairman Bill Armistead. "Conservatives all across Alabama are uniting behind Judge Moore to drain the DC swamp and send a clear message to Mitch McConnell and Karl Rove that their votes are not for sale. Voters in Alabama are repulsed by their negative attacks on Judge Moore and his wife. These new poll numbers will no doubt send them into orbit and they will double down on false negative attacks on Judge Moore as they did in the primary. But, I've got news for them. These attacks out of Washington will only reinforce voter's opinion that Mitch McConnell and Karl Rove are desperate to save their candidate at all costs, and they are not buying their garbage. Judge Moore will continue to run a positive campaign while Luther Strange swims in Washington's slimy swamp."
