A new poll, which may shock the D.C. swamp but not ordinary Americans, indicates that the Washington Post hit piece against conservative constitutional Christian, Judge Roy Moore, may not be having the impact that the establishment in both political parties desired.
As The Hill reported on Sunday, the report by the Washington Post — one month before the Alabama Senate election — who endorsed Roy Moore’s Democrat opponent, is causing a significant number of evangelicals to be even more likely to vote for the fiery conservative. It should be noted that Roy Moore has a 40-year track record in public service and has run in several state-wide elections, including for governor twice,
This is exactly the opposite of WaPo’s desired outcome of their politically-timed and politically-motivated smear:
Nearly 40 percent of Alabama evangelicals said in a new poll that they are more likely to vote for GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore following allegations of sexual misconduct against him.
A JMC analytics poll found that 37 percent of evangelicals surveyed said the allegations make them more likely to vote for the GOP Senate candidate in the upcoming election.
Just 28 percent said the allegations made them less likely to vote for Moore and 34 percent said the allegations made no difference in their decision.

The WaPo hatchet job, conveniently produced just a month before the Alabama Senate election on December 12, wants us to believe that Moore, 70, sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl when he was 32, in 1979, and that somehow — after 40 years in public service — (judges are elected in Alabama where Moore served on the Alabama Supreme Court) this “news” never before surfaced.
On Saturday, speaking before a Veterans Day event where he received several standing ovations, Roy Moore said that he’s been “investigated more than any other person in this country” and “to think that grown women would wait 40 years to come forward right before an election to bring charges is absolutely unbelievable.”
“Why now?” Moore, who has previously put his career on the line to defend real marriage and the Ten Commandments, asked:
“These allegations are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign,” Moore said in a statement obtained by Breitbart News.
Separately, Moore’s campaign said in a statement, “This garbage is the very definition of fake news and intentional defamation.”
Meanwhile, another indication that the WaPo smear is backfiring is exemplified by these two polls, both before and after the hit piece, as Breitbart reports:
The first survey, which was conducted entirely before noon local time on Thursday, shows Moore leading Jones by 50 percent to 39.2 percent with 10.8 percent undecided. That survey of 1,354 likely voters in the upcoming Dec. 12 special election has a margin of error of 3.5 percent.
The second survey, conducted Saturday evening—two days after the Post piece hit, roiling Alabama’s political scene—shows Moore and Jones with about the exact same percentages as before. Moore’s position in this second poll is 49.8 percent—meaning he only dropped 0.2 percent since the story hit—and Jones has only picked up 0.4 percent to reach 39.6 percent total. The second survey, which polled 1,536 likely voters with a margin of error of 3.3 percent, has 10.5 percent as undecided.
Not surprisingly, the GOP establishment, led by RINO Surrender Caucus Leader Mitch McConnell, have called for Roy Moore to step aside. Some, like pro-Obamacare, pro-amnesty RINO John McCain, whose voting record is 67% liberal, called for principled Christian conservative Roy Moore to step aside in favor the Democrat, even if the allegations are untrue, that the allegations alone are enough to disqualify Moore — which tells you everything you need to know — the establishment of both parties wants to block Roy Moore from being elected to the U.S. Senate.

Judge Roy Moore issued the following statement refuting the salacious, politically-timed allegations:
“Today, the Judge Roy Moore Campaign for U.S. Senate issued a statement responding to yet another baseless political attack by the Washington Post, a paper that has endorsed Judge Moore’s opponent. Moore campaign chair Bill Armistead released the following statement on Thursday afternoon:
Judge Roy Moore has endured the most outlandish attacks on any candidate in the modern political arena, but this story in today’s Washington Post alleging sexual impropriety takes the cake. National liberal organizations know their chosen candidate Doug Jones is in a death spiral, and this is their last ditch Hail Mary.
The Washington Post has already endorsed the Judge’s opponent, and for months, they have engaged in a systematic campaign to distort the truth about the Judge’s record and career and derail his campaign. In fact, just two days ago, the Foundation for Moral Law sent a retraction demand to the Post for the false stories they wrote about the Judge’s work and compensation. But apparently, there is no end to what the Post will allege.
The Judge has been married to Kayla for nearly 33 years, has 4 children, and 5 grandchildren. He has been a candidate in four hotly-contested statewide political contests, twice as a gubernatorial candidate and twice as a candidate for chief justice. He has been a three-time candidate for local office, and he has been a national figure in two ground-breaking, judicial fights over religious liberty and traditional marriage. After over 40 years of public service, if any of these allegations were true, they would have been made public long before now.
Judge Roy Moore is winning with a double-digit lead. So it is no surprise, with just over four weeks remaining, in a race for the U.S. Senate with national implications, that the Democratic Party and the country’s most liberal newspaper would come up with a fabrication of this kind.”
During an interview with Sean Hannity, Roy Moore said his campaign is investigating the WaPo hit job and says there may be some evidence of collusion with the D.C. swamp against him.
Surrender Caucus Leader Mitch McConnell (who unprecedentedly spent $30 million to defeat Moore in the Republican primary — Moore was running against his hand-picked puppy dog, Luther Strange) and his merry band of establishment RINO stooges, pounced on the news, immediately calling for Moore to exit the race so that a Democrat can be elected.
