This race will come down to how Republican voters in AL feel about Moore's record in politics more than anything else. From indicators I've gotten as well as some from others, many voters in AL view Moore as a BSC Republican who could do more damage to the image of AL than help it in the Senate. AL has spent a lot of time rebuilding its image post-Wallace era politics. It has tried to project a more forward-looking vision to help bring more investment to the state. Moore sets that vision back several decades at a time when companies are looking for inclusion and diversity for their workforces.
...
It's a shame voters are ignoring the victims of Moore's sexual harassment and assault as this only emboldens others to feel they can get away with the same.

First of all, I doubt many men feel "emboldened" to attempt sexual assaults with all the recent revelations.
Then, faced with the choice of an ACCUSED pedophile and a democrat, my prediction is that the people of Alabama will do the right thing and elect Moore. In a landslide.

Moz, further proof of the moral decay of the Republican Party. Thanks for comfirming that fact.

What is the party affiliation of 95% of the men who have been accused of sexual assault?
Answer: liberal democrat.
You wanna thank me for confirming that fact?

moz, can you provide the details behind that fact? List them off individually. What's your scope of reference? Looking at a USA Today report on sexual harassment claims in statehouses across the nation, the majority of claims are against Republican lawmakers. So I ask you to provide the details and scope of your claim.

Hey RBear - Nah, you're wrong. As with Hillary v Trump, the race will come down to black turn out. If blacks stay home in large numbers Moore wins. If they turn out in sufficient numbers, Moore loses. I agree many voters will vote more over the symbolism of "image" than the substance of the candidates. Conservatives in Alabama are still saying Moore will lose, although black turn out seems to be not so great at the moment.

Why is that with progs you have to always prove a fact while they take an allegation as already proven?

gohogs, in this case moz provided a numerical statement. So I need to see the data. It's how you evaluate fact vs. fiction. I know research is a tough one for you so we'll just leave it at that. I pointed out a survey of sexual offense by public officials provided by USA Today. I provided my facts. Now moz needs to do the same to counter for his point.
...
Most of us deal with facts head on, unlike you who knows everything and researches nothing. That's why your credibility lags.
