Democrat Doug Jones leads Roy Moore by 8 points among those likely to vote in Alabama’s special election to the U.S. Senate next month, according to Fox News.
Prior to the Fox News poll, RealClearPolitics’ average of recent polls in the state continued to give a slight edge to Moore. The Fox News poll, though shows a dramatic shift in the race since its last survey in October, with Jones seeing an 7-point jump from the 42 percent he earned among registered voters then to 49 percent support this month. Among likely voters, he leads 50 percent to 42 percent.
