A final poll done today, election-eve Monday, of potential Alabama voters – commissioned by BarbWire.com and conducted by the nonpartisan FreeEats.com, an opt-in database of millions of mobile device recipients who are actually paid for weighing-in – has predicted that former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore is well on his way to winning the 2017 GOP Primary election for U.S. Senate against establishment darling Luther Strange.
At the time of this report, 205 respondents, representing a wide and varied demographic sampling of Alabamians, had Judge Roy Moore leading Luther Strange roughly 50% to 25%, with about another 25% saying they were sitting this election out.
Interestingly, over 65% of respondents were between the ages of 18-39 (millennial generation or younger), mostly female, and nearly half (45%) were African-American.
Of further interest is that the overall split, whether voting or not, between self-identified Republicans (36.10%) and Democrats (35.61%) was almost evenly matched, underscoring the apparent bipartisan and biracial appeal Judge Roy Moore’s message carries in both Alabama and around the country.
The most interesting, and, indeed perhaps most telling, result found in the survey is that, when asked, “Do you have a favorable opinion of Donald Trump?” nearly 60% of respondents said “No,” while only about 40% said “Yes.”
It seems that, love him or hate him, President Donald Trump may have, at least in this particular race, bet on the wrong horse (Trump Endorsed establishment candidate Luther Strange).
