Strange Closes Gap but Moore Still leads by Double Digits in AL for GOP Senate Nomination

A new Emerson College Poll of Alabama finds that over the past two weeks, incumbent Senator Luther Strange has gained ground in his battle with challenger Roy Moore just two days before the September 26 runoff. Moore still leads Strange 50% to 40%, but the gap has narrowed. Strange trailed Moore by 14 points two weeks ago in Emerson’s previous Alabama poll.

President Trump’s ardent support of Luther Strange in the recent weeks is the likely cause of the gap closing. Voters in Alabama give President Trump a 61% favorable opinion and 32% unfavorable opinion, but of likely GOP Alabama primary voters, Trump’s popularity soars to 80% favorable. However, even among Trump’s supporters, Moore has razor-thin lead 49%-47%, a significant improvement for Strange since the last Emerson poll, in which Moore led among Trump supporters 51% to 32%.
