    I'm personally holding out hope that Alabamians will not vote for Moore, when it comes down to it. I think Republican women will lead the way in voting for Doug Jones.

    Write in candidates have won elections but it is rare. If Moore remains in the race he will be splitting votes with the republican write-ins. With the democratic candidate ahead in polls now, that would surely mean a loss of a republican senate seat in congress. That would mean republican control of the Senate would be 51 seats to democrat's 48 seats with 2 independents who caucus with democrats. Republicans could afford to lose only one vote in the Senate. Considering the division Trump has brought to Congress, that would be a disaster for republicans.

    A republican write in with Moore in the race will not save the seat because the republican votes will be split. There is only two ways republicans can save that seat. Moore resigns and there there is huge campaign to support the republican write in or Moore has a phenomenal recovery.

    A Fox News poll on Thursday evening, yesterday showed Jones with a remarkable eight-point lead over Moore.

    Very few people will waste a vote on a write-in. If im a conservative in AL and my choice is Clinton or Moore i would vote for Moore.

    Let me say one thing about these polls. If there were 3 attacks within a few days from muslim immigrants killing 20-30 people each in american cities i would suspect a poll taken a few days later would show overwhelming support for stopping muslim immigration then a month later they would go back to normal.

    I wouldn't be that surprised, frankly, given how partisan this country has become, but the State of Alabama ought to be embarrassed if he does.
