Polls open in Alabama’s special election in just hours, and the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate isn’t the only seat that may be decided.
At stake is whether Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell retains the support of incumbent appointed Senator Luther Strange, or whether the seat could be filled by former State Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore, who has vowed to vote against keeping McConnell in as Majority Leader.
A new Emerson College Polling Society poll finds Moore’s support has slipped four points in three weeks, and he currently leads by only 10%.
However, polling in a primary election is difficult, and polling in a special election is even harder. Anything could happen over the next 36 hours.
