WATCH: Lack of Support From GOP, Voters Lost Moore the Ala. Election

December 20, 2017
OAN Newsroom

Officials are still counting up the military ballots in Alabama, but it doesn’t look like Roy Moore will pick up enough votes to trigger a recall.

One America’s Pearson Sharp takes a closer look at the election, and what went wrong for a candidate that seemed all but certain to win.

  • Tragic Typos

    @3:36 “Black voters…turned up in higher than expected numbers; however there is no indication of any illegal voting practices so far.”

    So OAN lets its reporters just do casual racism in their reports?

  • jill

    A don’t go and vote is a “vote”. As in this case conservatives voted for Jones by not voting. Christians that said they couldn’t vote for a man “ACCUSED” must remember Jesus was “ACCUSED” too. Which one of the candidates would God have voted for? Which one’s principals would have moved God’s agenda forward? Aborting one of God’s children is offering a sacrifice to Baal (Satan). Women are breeders for these sacrifices and they voted for the right to do just that. Those children’s blood will be on our hands. Staying at home, not voting is your choice however if America’s continue to allow the corrupt elite establishment to dominate we all will suffer. Alabama voters had the opportunity to change the destiny of America for good however due to indifference this failure will cost our nation and state dearly. Look at the type folks Jones targeted to vote. Bringing in out of state workers to do whatever they claimed to do. Millions poured into the campaign and conservatives and republican establishment threw him under the bus. People who say they are Christians and don’t stand for what is right are lyre’s. God have mercy on America, and on Alabama for judgment will come to Alabama.

  • facevalue

    Republican voters did not show up because they are sending a clear message.. If you are corrupt, you will not have the privlege of serving us… Unlike Democrats who are corrupt on all levels…

    • jill

      So you got a democrat who is corrupt on all levels. You aren’t a responsible citizen. However you did vote. No vote is a vote.

      • facevalue

        Jill. Don’t worry about anything. The Democrats are hanging themselves more and more every day. The people of Alabama will have to pay for their own sins… If Trump does not drain the swamp, politics will remain as such long after we are gone…GOD BLESS AMERICA…

  • Fergus

    This dummy lost because of those IDIOT CLOWN hats he wears, he ain’t no cowboy and shouldn’t try and look like one.
    The other reason was most voters realized he would become a REAL problem once he got in office with is so-called FAKE christen hypocrisy speak He doesn’t seem to understand religion has NO PLACE in government NOR politics.

  • Snowflake Blaster

    Moore lost due to electronic vote rigging (Soros company owns and manages those voting machines), bussed in millennial/college demonrats from all across the country, black preachers culling the jails to register convicts to vote, and the miraculous turnouts of more voters than are actually registered in the largest AL cities across the state…. Even with the GOP actively working to defeat Moore, they had to do all of the above listed activities to pull that demon DJones across the line.

  • Buddy Jenkins

    The Harry Reed method of politics, make a claim against your opponent and make them prove it is not true. How can you prove accusations from 40 years ago with no witnesses? This weapon was so successful we will see it used by the Democrats again.

  • 2EdgedSword

    McConnell and Ryan must be punished for their collusion with Clintons and Obama to corrupt this election. This was a beta test for the corruptions planned for the 2018 chess moves.

  • Moore is a low life with no respect for the rule of law or the constitution. His opinion matters more than the rule of law or the constitution. That he lost is no surprise. A good republican will retake the seat in 2020.

  • weasel1886

    Now Moore is going after Jones son.
    Moore is disgusting filth. I hope his life can be ruined somehow

  • gwilson5150

    What about the voters coming ‘from out of state…all across the country’ to vote for Jones? The many thousands of voters registered in a town about half the size? Also, does anyone notice that all the accusers of Roy Moore have become silent? Coincidence? Naaaah!

    • Rufus Firefly

      Help is available.

  • Greg Meyer

    Alabama voters will get what they deserve then, an anti capitalist enemy of American Christian values to represent the socialist/communist interests in their government. Enjoy the higher taxation and waste suckers.

  • s7rabin

    You hide behind a false name; you demean weasels!

  • s7rabin

    Don’t you mean the communist manifesto!

  • Libhunter

    Alabama! You guys lost this election by succumbing to left wing/commie propaganda! Enjoy this commie deviate until November, if you can’t figure out how much you get crapped on by then, you deserve being run by YANKEE CARPETBAGGERS RULE!

  • Uncle_Pinko

    Roy Moore was a sanctimonious scumbag who didn’t like to follow the rule of law. He’s a bigot and homophobe. All of those reasons were enough not to elect him. But then we found out he liked to date teenagers when he was in his 30’s and THAT was what finally pushed Alabama over the edge.

  • DCBlueBlood

    Roy Moore has lost EVERY NON JUDICIAL RACE He has run.

    They Don’t Want Him.

    When’s the pedophile 14 year old skirt chaser going to concede?

  • Bob

    I’m not sure if it was lack of support from gop or support from all of the felons that the dems registered last minute

  • jill

    Alabama has now become a gutless, do nothing, slum state. Strongest conservative state in the US just went down the tubes. Roy Moore was a man who fought for his convictions, attacked by the libs, and was thrown to the dogs. Whatever comes to Alabama they deserve.

    • weasel1886

      Even Alabama deserves better than the worthless piece of trash Moore

  • Highwayman

    “Black voters came out in droves”, I always wonder why black voters and native Americans vote democrat more often than not? They perpetuate what they have lived for decades, no change, they keep buying the democratic lines and keep ending up with the same, no positive change to their prosperity, environment, crime. Look at Chicago for one of many examples. It’s the old adage, “To continue to do the same and expect different results is the definition of insanity”. We will see very positive changes this next year financially now with the tax relief bill passing so maybe after everyone receives their first paycheck in January they will reevaluate their voting habits and stop depending on more and more government to “take care of them” and realize less government is always better.

  • Jim

    Blacks wiff no ID crying racism and voting 9 times each for massa Democrat party.

  • SaltySarge

    I hope Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan get voted out for their despicable acts.

  • Karl Marx

    I know I drove 10,000 Mexicans from Columbia to Mobile.
    Mitch helped drive the bus.

  • Chris King

    more black turnout than for obama in 2008? no evidence of fraud my foot.

  • BernieLee2004

    What went wrong for Roy Moore is that multiple women mad credible claims f child molestation against him. Another thing that went wrong for him is his past racist comments towards African Americans.

    • A marcus Young

      Anyone is better than a Democrat. Satan himself would be more trustworthy.

  • RMCS Ret.

    Just a guy from Texas voicing an opinion. Have inlaws in Al that are fierce Moore supporters. I happen to like the guy but like Hillary, he was a bad candidate. What happened to him was disingenuous to say the least, but you could see it coming. He was a lightening rod his whole political career. I hate it that he lost because of the very slim margin the Republicans hold in the senate, but understand it. Not withstanding the sexual nonsense, he had a bit of baggage. I still thought he’d pull it out over Jones, but didn’t happen. I think Strange was the better candidate, but the AL voters thought otherwise. I liked Moore’s standing up for his beliefs, but sometimes you have to look at the long range picture and vote for the guy you think will be electable.

    • All American

      I liked that he is a staunch Constitutionalist.

      • BernieLee2004

        Lol. He got booted out of the conservative Supreme Court of Alabama twice for gross violations of the Constitution.

        • RMCS Ret.

          and that he did.

        • All American

          Like refusing to remove the 10 Commandments from the Courthouse ya I recall that but where is this addressed in the Constitution
          And same sex marriage he called it
          homosexual behavior “an inherent evil, and an act so heinous that it defies one’s ability to describe it.”
          How do two men consummate a marriage anyway? I always wonder especially when I see two men. Is it like a woman and a man or Sodom and Gomorrah?

  • nihilistic

    I read on OANN that Roy Moore swept the election. What happened!

    • BernieLee2004

      They were ignorant and reported wishful thinking. They were pandering to you ignorant tbgrs.

  • PatriotInk

    So what do the “Republican” voters have from doing nothing? They have a supporter for the continued slaughter of unborn citizens, OZero mandate adherent, fan of immigration (legal or illegal-doesn’t matter), and more.
    Congratulations Alabama. Jones’ spillover to subsidize the rot this nation with immoral, and unethical choices will have its consequences for all of us.

    • All American

      No Sanctuary city in Alabama. Are you suggesting that the state rallies illegal aliens?

      • PatriotInk

        Do you have a comprehension problem?
        Your question is premised upon a false notion that I in no way suggested at all…

  • Rufus Firefly

    Some republicans may simply object to their party’s flirtation with sexual abusers and racists.

    • BernieLee2004

      Yours is the one sane comment on this thread.

      • Elliott Gleaton

        Stfu

    • Znotty

      The GOP is the racist party

      • Gus Anderson

        Stupid troll….the Demonrats are the Party of the KKK, voted against the Civil Rights Acts and wave free stuff in front of the faces of minorities (which represents the new enslavement).

        • Znotty

          The best part of you ran down your mothers leg…you racist yellow snowflake

  • MJABRTDK

    I’m all for holding men accountable for behaving badly but not forty years later … if it was such a big deal they or their parents should have done something a long time ago … this smak’s with corruption to the highest levels of the Democrat party … and Alabama bought into the lie. The DNC is a bunch of lying pond scum.

  • Vera Orsova

    Democraps stole the elections. Plain and simple. False accusations, lies, illegals voting, voters bused in from other states, dearly departed resurrected, you name it. Didn’t work for Hillary last year, but they succeeded in Alabama. Unfortunately.

  • Alwaysafan

    It’s obvious that anyone with a brain can see that this election was rigged with false accusations and fraudulent voting. You won’t hear it on the fake news, of course. There needs to be a thorough recount. It is despicable that the democrats got away with it and will keep getting away with it because it worked for them. How does ambulance chaser Gloria Allred sleep at night? Probably too busy counting her her money. Keep fighting, Mr. Moore. Even if you don’t win, you didn’t make it easy on them.

    • BernieLee2004

      Yes. With a conservative attorney general. You are quite an ignoramous if you believe that.

    • Uncle_Pinko

      Yes, I remember when OANN claimed that Moore had won. That was some amazing fake news.

  • jeff benner

    Swamp honcho McConnell gave away a Senate seat with a smile on his turtle face. What a pig.

  • “No Indication of any illegal voting practices?”
    WTF? Are you people not watching the news? They even admitted coming from other states to vote, caught illegals voting at several precincts repeatedly.
    No indication? Come on OANN….

    • All American

      The ballots indubitably need a comprehensive review.
      For sure fraudulent votes will be found.
      I’m not sure how to do it but maybe we should start a gofundme for Roy Moore to pay for the vote recount?

      • BernieLee2004

        Rrriiiggghhhtt. The conservative AG let them vote. Man you tbgrs are ignorant.

        • Chris King

          you have evidence the AG was at all ballot booths interviewing all voters?

          what a leftypical comment. Outrageously weak.

    • BernieLee2004

      You are very ignorant. You don’t think the conservative attorney general of Alabama would catch such a plot?

      • Chris King

        you’re insults are very convincing. interesting that you suggesting there was a plot… huh.

      • I’m ignorant? Hey genius, there’s a process to law, and the AG comes in only after a completed investigation, which is my point to the author of this POS.
        He’s writing as if the verdict is already in, devoid of the fact the we’re still gathering evidence.
        Why do you idiot libs even bother speaking up, when you know good and well some Conservative is just waiting for the chance to slap you flat onyourass.

    • Uncle_Pinko

      Not true.

    • You gullible meat puppets and your fake news conspiracies LOL!

      • Keep watching my young and ignorant lib friend, this story is not over by a long shot.
        I’m willing to bet you never heard about the van full of illegals hitting several different polls, or the busloads of blacks from Mississippi?
        Of course you didn’t, you watch leftist news.

  • Clearlysane

    Where are the women now? Fading back to their trailer parks.

    • Wanda

      I suspect they can now afford much better living quarters.

    • Karl Marx

      TRUMP Supporter = Race Baiter and Pro-Pedophile.

      • Highwayman

        Liberal =’s anti-American communist shill

        • Trump supporter = anti-American Russian stooge

          • Highwayman

            And the 145 million the Clinton foundation received given by Russian corporations for Uranium 1 and the $500,000 paid to billary for his speech doesn’t tie the Clintons to the Russians? You really should take the red pill, I can’t promise you will feel better but you could reboot your brain and fight on the correct side of the truth. Don’t say the above is not true there is more than enough evidence of the corruption and it is now being invested by the DOJ hopefully by those with integrity this time around.

      • Ledfether

        Try using a dictionary. Moore was not accused of any misbehavior with prepubescents.

        They dont educate you people very well in Troll School do they? And the garbage you consume you call “news” isn’t helping your intelligence level either

        • jill

          True but what they did worked very well. Today no one is able to think for themselves. They just listen to the media.

      • Teagen2015

        Marx= idiot.

        • s7rabin

          Unfortunately, you are wrong. Marx’ philosophy seems to work with the NON-DEPLORABLES (progressives, dems, modern day liberals).

          • Teagen2015

            Work?? Every Communist state has been a failure. You have no clue.

          • ComradeAdam

            There are 5 Marxist communist nations in the world today: China, Cuba, North Korea, Laos, and Vietnam
            Which would you prefer to live in? Why haven’t you moved already? Or maybe you would prefer a country with Marxist leaders, like Venezuela, a country where the people have resorted to stealing Zoo animals to kill to feed themselves. Marxism sounds good on paper to many people, but when implemented you begin to see it’s flaws.

            Marxism means the state owns you and your labor, anything you build belongs to them and in return they are supposed take care of your needs. Since the government gives your allotted food, clothing and shelter, you have no reason to work any harder to improve your conditions, unless the government forces you at the point of a gun. With the state invested in all economic industries, they will not allow new ideas that compete with the current way of doing things; innovation and growth are killed. When output declines, government runs out of money and people starve. But that just means you become disposable because choices are not made based on what is most beneficial to you as an individual, but what is beneficial to the state and those in power.
            America once had an identical system; those in charge owned the people and the labor, this system was called slavery and our nation paid a huge price to ensure it ended.

      • TEXAS HEALTH NUT

        There is no proof and actually there is more proof that they were frauds.

    • kaiju

      I’m not really that upset with the women. They are just like poor prostitutes selling themselves for money. The real criminals are those that sought them out and paid them.

  • Robert Johnson

    Moore probably won, but with all of the voter fraud and lack of interest in the truth we will never know…..

  • No Mas

    Lets look at the facts… Moore did nothing illegal. Moore had a tendency to date younger women. I don’t know about the allegations but if he did anything illegal or seriously offensive it would have been made news when it happened, not 40 years later.
    I am not a Moore supporter.
    With that said, the voters in Alabama that chose not to vote because of the negative media, are weak and stupid hiding behind some fake moral reasoning…
    Any democrat will vote for abortions paid by tax dollars, and that is murder…
    So, choose a murderer or a guy that dates women younger,… Alabama chose the murderer

    DEMONRATS WON THIS WITH FAkE AND SUPER NEGATIVE MEDIA! = STUPID ALABAMAN’S

    • PainfullyReality

      Remember, virtue signaling is vogue

    • Ledfether

      They also won it with support from Spineless RINO’s

  • AlexanderYpsilantis

    Massive election fraud combined with GOP refusal to support Moore.

  • A marcus Young

    Rigged

    • BernieLee2004

      Yes, rigged in rock rib conservative Alabama. You a not a very bright man.

      • A marcus Young

        Your mother was rigged.

      • dskap201

        and YOUR English is not very good either!

  • Joe samo

    It sad to see that an election won by the demwits lying about the other candidates. So to win you have to get a bad enough lie out about the other person before that person gets it out on you.

    • A marcus Young

      The ballot counters ;(

  • Wanda

    I personally did not care that much for Moore even though he was the better choice. Interesting how the sexual harassment story has dropped out of vogue. I guess the women collected their paychecks and moved on.

    • No Mas

      exactly!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • BernieLee2004

      Sweetheart, no paycheckes were involved. Nice try though.

      • SaltySarge

        incorrect. They were being paid by someone to lie. Lisa Bloom was caught red handed offering up to 170K to women to would come forward and lie about Trump sexual allegations.

      • Wanda

        I agree. Cash is always harder to track.

      • Ledfether

        Bless your heart…you dont know that any better than No Mas.

      • In Trump America you get to make up your own facts.

        • Highwayman

          And liberal stooges (read that as anti-American communists) never have to deal with facts only soundbites and lies fed to them by the fraudulent MSM

  • Joe samo

    It is hard to unring the bell…the lying demwits know it.

  • kaiju

    Let’s keep the blame where it belongs. Moore had about 1million to spend on his campaign. His opposition spent tens of millions attacking him. In the end It was the false accusations placed in the minds of Moore’s base voters that lost the election for him.

    • Joe samo

      The soros affect.

    • A marcus Young

      It’s the rigged effect

      • JustmJustm

        Lol obviously they offered enough to some trailer trash who is low enough to do so…

    • PainfullyReality

      We get the government we deserve.
