After a period of silence Donald Trump has formally endorsed Roy Moore’s campaign for Senate, despite allegations of sexual assault against him. A CBS/YouGov Poll shows that the vast majority of Republican voters in Alabama feel that the allegations against Moore are false. Moore is leading the senatorial race by a margin of six points, well outside the margin of error for the poll. It is unsurprising that amid false accusations of sexual assault against both parties, voters with reason to support Moore’s policy seem to care little about such allegations.
Some of the major evidence against Moore has recently been discredited, although accusers continue to emerge.
