A new poll shows an increasingly wide gap in the primary race for Alabama’s Senate seat.

The survey from the Trafalgar Group shows former State Chief Justice Roy Moore has 35% support.

Luther Strange — who was appointed to fill the seat left by Attorney General Jeff Sessions earlier this year — has 23% of the vote.

He also has the support of President Trump but other Republican leaders are split on their support.

Congressman Mo Brooks rounds out the top three with 20%.

This is the largest lead in a poll for Moore, as previous data has shown just a single digit lead for him.

  • Bob S

    The turtle (McConnell) is is doing everything he can to Luther (is) Strange elected. Because Strange will be McConnell’s lap dog. Luther (is) Strange is a RINO just like McConnell. Mo Brooks is the best choice IMO.

  • Harvey Gamel

    Why is it that the self-professed “christian” posters are, by far, the least christian seeming people anywhere on Earth. Truly disgusting…….

  • xeriscapelady

    I don;t understand why TRUMP supports Luther Strange. I understand he replaced Jeff Sessions and is like TRUMP in all ways. But Roy Moore would be a better choice as he is tested by fir and I think he would stand strong with TRUMP on every issue. I guess either is good

  • Missy

    Judge Roy Moore is a godly man and has my vote.

  • Arny.Plumb

    Judge Roy Moore might actually be a good candidate to appoint to the Supreme Court and perhaps as a Senator win over a few backers.

  • Raincroft

    Brooks is a ‘never trumper’…Keep him out!!

  • Raincroft

    Great man!!!

  • constitutiononly

    The REAL conservative should win.

  • BillyBatson

    Strange is the President’s choice because he won’t be a pain in the ass blocker of Trump’s agenda to
    Make America Great Again.

  • BigDog40

    Roy Moore, nah I don’t think so. No support from me.

  • Sonny Shaw

    Roy Moore is a good man he stood his ground with the 10 Commandments and now we need him in the Senate to kick McConnell out of the President Pro temp slot…. Where can I send my donation to Roy?

    • tiredoftaxes31

      Sonny… thank you for your comment.

      Our current generation lacks any and all moral fortitude, will NOT defend the country if we have to implement the draft, believe their education should be free, think babies can be flushed down the toilet, and who deny their biological gender, etc…. These people are in the wrong country – they hate America the people and who made it great so I recommend the following:

      The “vagina heads” (Leaders are Ashley Judd and Madonna) need to take their message on the road (bring along Streisand, Rosie O’Donnell, Whoopie, Clinton girls, Obama girls, Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren, Wasserman-Schultz, Maxine Watters, Donna Brazil, Feinstein) to Iran, Saudia Aradia, Pakistan, Syria, Venezeula, North Korea, Turkey, Kenya, Russia, etc.. They can spend 3 months there WITHOUT THEIR BODYGUARDS sharing their “point of view” about racists, sexists, haters, facists, anti religiion, anti gender, and my favorite “man spreading.” They can report back in to us via uTube about their results.

      Roy Moore is exactly what we need in government.

  • dogeatdog

    With Alabama being the 4th poorest, 4th dumbest and 2nd fattest state in the nation, it’s no surprise that the horde of Biblically brainwashed, sub-educated gumps who inhabit much of the state would favor a delusional holy roller like Moore. It would be fitting for one of America’s most scientifically challenged state populations to send a bigoted creationist to the US Senate.

    In a state widely populated by those gullible and ignorant enough to believe the earth is less than 10,000 years old and that dinosaurs rode around for a year on a giant wooden boat with 8 people, Roy Moore is the perfect fit.

    • tiredoftaxes31

      You’re in the wrong country doeatdog. It was started by Puritans.

      Signed,

      A “women Holy roller” with a Masters in Engineering from Cornell that runs a global IT company who can proudly say her best friend is a beautiful black woman who is also educated

      Stick that in your ear moron

      • dogeatdog

        A PhD does not magically make someone hold religious faith to a higher standard of evidence and reason than the non-college educated, although statistically it does suggest a person is more likely to do so. Of course there are always exceptions…

        It’s a safe bet to assume your PhD isn’t in a hard science or American history.

        • Harvey Gamel

          note the use of “women”. Perhaps she is multiple personalities…?

      • Harvey Gamel

        actually, it was started by native americans…

    • BillyBatson

      No amen, No ‘like’ and no vote.

    • Veritatis Splendor

      I could not imagine a more glowing or a more inspirering or motivating recommendation for Roy Moore then the one you just gave him.

      • dogeatdog

        Forgot to add – Alabama #1 in prescription opioid use.

        Someone should ask Roy Moore why Jesus and his dad enjoy keeping Alabama so poor, dumb, fat and addicted to opioids. Apparently the gumps need to pray harder.

        • Veritatis Splendor

          The devil is working overtime all the time as we can tell from your posts.

        • Harvey Gamel

          As poor, dumb, fat and addicted is the plan, it looks like Alabama is actually doing a pretty good job…..

        • Frank

          So, how much do YOU weigh? What is your annual income, and tell us…What is YOUR drug of choice? You are 99% likely to be just another ignorant leftist idiot/hypocrite.

          • dogeatdog

            My personal situation, which you wouldn’t believe, has absolutely no bearing on why Jesus likes keeping Dixie so fat, dumb, poor and addicted to opiods. At some point an objective, reasonable person has to ask themselves – is anyone even listening to our prayers? The answer seems pretty obvious…

          • Frank

            Thanks! You show us the “idiot’s dodge.” Fun to poke a finger into someone Else’s ribs; but, not so much into your own, huh doofus?

          • dogeatdog

            Yes, I dodged an idiot. Not sure who sold you the ability to see my bathroom scale and my W2 from across the internet, but you should demand a refund….or pray harder.

          • Frank

            Once again, you brain dead worm. Thanks for proving what a worthless waste of flesh you really are. TROLL!!

      • Harvey Gamel

        no imagination – strike two….

  • southdfw

    EXCELLENT! This man has proved his love of the LORD!
    When you get up there, don’t forget to watch the back stabbing M(B)itch McConnell.

  • Butthep

    Al, please support Justice chief Moore for Senate seat. We are behind him.

    • xeriscapelady

      You do realize that Strange also is 100% conservative, a Christian and a loyal TRUMP man don’t you?

  • mkdavis

    Go Judge Moore.

  • marka3

    Trump’s endorsement of Strange actually helped Moore by taking votes away from Brooks, an outspoken never-Trumper.

  • Bluthar

    Love this guy!!!

  • tedlv

    It’s a paid troll. Good call.

  • A marcus Young

    Same, liberal media fake poll data that permeated that last election. Alabama is still the same Democrat, Jim crow state it has always been. Ironic that it produced a great Republican such as Sessions.

    • tedlv

      Sessions “great”? You’re funny! Hahaha! Thanks for the laugh!

      • CCTexas

        Marcus is same liberals supporting anyone who is against the constitution.

  • WoundedChristian

    I wish Judge Moore would run for President.

    • A marcus Young

      Why? You do not like President Trump?

  • JamesHarb

    Trump endorsed Luther Strange… Luther has voted with Trump on everything by the budget (when he voted anti-Swamp/compromise, with Cruz and Rand). He has approved all of his nominees and to repeal healthcare, among other things. He is reliable for moving Trumps agenda forward.

    • txvet2

      It’s pretty clear that Trump’s base doesn’t agree with him on Strange or he would be leading.

  • sgt joe rock

    any repub who questions this man should be voted out.

    • Frank

      We should ALL be “questioning” our elected officials.

      • A marcus Young

        We are beyond the question part. Its time to start arresting people.

      • 808Americans

        Shhhhhh đŸ˜‰
        Your going to upset some folks.
        Which is a good thing đŸ™‚

      • philla12

        But only the Republican ones?

        • Frank

          No. ALL of them.

    • A marcus Young

      Questions what man?

  • Barry Soetoro-Chin

    Roy Moore would be an AWESOME replacement for Jeff Sessions. He’s got my vote.

    • A marcus Young

      He is a Democrat.

    • Trump Our Greatest POTUS

      comrade bye

    • BillyBatson

      Mr. Strange is President Trump’s pick…Why go against him now when he needs all of us the most?!

      • Barry Soetoro-Chin

        I’m sure Mr. Strange would be an outstanding Senator but, all I know about him is what I’ve read from my research.

        I’ve done my research on Roy Moore, have met him and talked with him at length and think he would be an even better Senator.

        So, we’ll.

        • Veritatis Splendor

          Roy Moore is a conservative, a Christian and a person of good character. Everyone admired his stance on the ten commandments. He knows how to take the heat and do the right thing. There are three good choices. The good people of Alabama are well able choose. God bless them!

          • Barry Soetoro-Chin

            Amen, brother!

            Too bad the other 49 states don’t have three legitimate conservatives to choose from, especially Arizona, South and North Carolina, Florida, Nevada, West Virginia, Alaska and Maine.

          • xeriscapelady

            Yes in Fl we have a liberal pinko lying democrat and a RHINO Rep. who hates TRUMP but lies like he does SOME.

          • Barry Soetoro-Chin

            ‘Little Marco’ with his tiny feet and equally tiny hands?

          • FLLoeffler

            They have a better choice than we did for POTUS.

      • NativeCalifornian

        Hi Billy,

        Regardless of whether President Trump supports Strange or not, McConnell and the Washington Establishment and the RINOs support Strange and THAT should be a definite warning sign. It is also true that they fear Judge Moore the most and that too should send a definitely positive signal. Furthermore, the GOP entities are spending millions to defeat a strong Republican conservative in a a PRIMARY!!! That is what they have done for decades… eliminating those who might upset their game plan. Moore is the obvious choice for any true conservative. I am a Republican, but decades ago i saw this game.. the party raises money from conservative and then uses it in the PRIMARY to eliminate the most conservative candidates. Anyway, Moore is the best choice and he already leads by double digits so why are they wasting contributions on Strange and Brooks? Probably because Moore is NOT in their pocket like Strange. Yet another confirmation that Moore is the best choice. Finally, here in California I am stuck with 2 extremely liberal senators and I would like to put in my two cents worth for a conservative counter to my two senators that I am praying God will save and change or replace. Please Alabama… get Roy Moore in there on the first ballot. Consider this a plea from a conservative in California. Most of all pray for Moore and our country. Thanks for listening!

        • AnimashaunWashington

          I concur!
          P.S. I’m in CA (Utopia) as well!!

      • AnimashaunWashington

        Mr. Strange is will be counter productive. Mr. Strange is in Mitch McConnell’s camp. In order for President Trump to be truly successful he is going to need more conservative advise. Teaming up in any kind of way with these filthy vile Democrats is a trap. If the Democrat like what POTUS is saying then he should always tread lightly. If the hate what he is doing then most likely he is doing the correct thing. Sounds simple but true.

  • KevinR.

    Judge Roy Moore would be a good addition to the Senate, to join with Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Rand Paul….and the extremely few others who actually know and follow the Constitution.

    • William Everett Hendry bhendry

      and who currently block every good push that our President wants to get completed like tax reform and healthcare……at least he’s a Republican but with that crew you suggest he’s just another stumbling block…

      • KevinR.

        Actually, it is not Mike Lee, Ted Cruz or Rand Paul blocking tax reform, or a repeal of Obamacare, since they are the ones who are fighting to repeal Obamacare.

        Perhaps you think they should ignore the Constitution and vote for something that is as bad as or worse than Obamacare just to say….hey look, the Republicans passed a bill.

        • xeriscapelady

          Yes they are the heros fighting for us and wanting what TRUMP wants. WE need more of them. McCain needs to go..one way or another. he stopped the REPEAL. He is a traitor. He already is …disobeyed order in Nam, was hot down and injured. Dad was real admiral so he was NOT tortured . He is a LIE and TRUMP knew it. I would have said the whole thing so people know what McCain really is.

        • AnimashaunWashington

          Nailed it! Obama so called “care” is a form of tyranny.

      • txvet2

        Every one of them voted for the Senate repeal bill, imperfect though it was. In fact, Cruz is the one who proposed a compromise amendment to help satisfy the Tuesday Group, and the Marxist Gang of Three are the ones who eventually sank it.

      • AnimashaunWashington

        In order for there to be real progress, real victories the conservative spectrum of the Republican party is what all the Republicans should be like. If theses pseudo Republicans are just a hinderance to “true” victories. The conservative always get blamed and always used as scapegoats because there are principles of Americanism that they promote and standby. This is the real reason they are attacked. But these pseudo Republicans are always cornered and agreeing with the Democrats. Now the Democrats really don’t want true progress. If they did they would leave us “all” alone.

    • BillyBatson

      The time for those you mentioned will come AFTER Trump;s agenda is accomplished.
      Let them back Trump now and he and We The American People will back them later.

      • KevinR.

        You either support the Constitution or you do not. It is obvious you do not.

        If you refuse to support those who fight for the Constitution, simply because you think they are not supporting Trump enough is absurd.

        • AnimashaunWashington

          Yes. This is what people should be focusing on. We need less government control in all of our lives. That means that these vile politicians will stop creating onerous laws. Less laws/less regulations. More freedom.

      • txvet2

        Supposedly, Trump’s agenda is to close the borders, deport illegals, repeal Obamacare, and tax reform among other things. Every one of those objectives is supported by the Senate (and House) conservatives. The so-called RINOs (led by McConnell) are the ones blocking Trump’s agenda.

    • antsey

      You should have stopped after “Judge Roy Moore would be a good addition to the senate”. The rest of your statement is suspect to scrutiny.

      • KevinR.

        Not at all. Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, and in many cases Rand Paul are the ones fighting for the Constitution, they are the ones fighting to repeal Obamacare, they were the ones who fought to stop Obamacare….

        There are not many in the Senate that are actual Conservatives and fight for the Constitution, and there are only a few more in the House, with Brat, Garrett, Gohmert, and a few others.

        If your issue is Cruz ran against Trump, grow up.
