Sixty percent of U.S. voters, including half of Republicans, believe Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore should withdraw from the special election in the wake of sexual harassment and assault allegations, according to a Morning Consult/Politico poll released Tuesday.
The Nov. 9-11 survey found 60 percent of voters think the GOP nominee should end his bid before the Dec. 12 election. Another 60 percent say the sexual harassment and sexual assault allegations five women have leveled against him are “credible.”
Nearly three-quarters of Democrats and 62 percent of independent voters want Moore to step down, and 50 percent of conservatives and 49 percent of people who voted for President Trump in last year’s election agree.
Only 26 percent of Republicans think Moore should continue in the race compared to 16 percent of all voters who say she should go forward.
The online survey was conducted among 1,993 registered voters nationwide and had a 2 percentage point margin of error.
