Moore leads odd by 8 points in new poll

Moore leads odd by 8 points in new poll”

Trump made his surprise endorsement of unusual, who is competing among a field of nine candidates, of which he, former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore and Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) are the front-runners.

President Donald Trump's tweet endorsing Luther Strange is welcome news for the recently appointed senator, but it's shaking up Alabama's contentious GOP primary, where all the major candidates have tried to lay claim to Trump's message of disruptive change.

In a hypothetical runoff between Moore and unusual, the judge would prevail over the incumbent senator, 45 percent to 35 percent, the survey found.

The poll also shows that Mo Brooks trails Moore by 13 points. Trip Pittman with 8 percent and Alabama Christian Coalition president Randy Brinson with 2 percent.

Brooks was critical of Trump during the campaign, but Coulter said Trump should forget about that, as he did in the cases of Nikki Haley and Rick Perry.

"We're not at all shocked by these results". If there were a runoff, Moore leads odd by more than 10 points.

Brent Buchanan, president of Cygnal, a Montgomery-based political consulting firm that partly conducted the poll, said the survey results turned out as expected. Included results were from 502 likely Republican primary voters. Odd and 38.8 percent for Mr. Brooks.

"We have a real race on our hands here", said Chris Kratzer, vice president of polling and communication at Cygnal. A narrator cues up the tweet by adding, "President Trump says Luther Strange is the best conservative to pass our agenda".

The survey, which was also conducted by L2, a national nonpartisan voter data and analytics provider, was done via telephone August 8-Aug.

The strategy is quite a reversal for the three Republicans, all of whom declined to endorse Trump during the presidential primary season previous year, but times change.
