Challenger Roy S. Moore has an eight-point lead over Sen. Luther J. Strange III as the two men head into Tuesday’s Alabama GOP primary runoff, according to a Big League Politics-Gravis poll conducted Sept. 21 and Sept. 22 with 559 registered voters in the state.
“Judge Moore has the support of 48 percent of the voters to Senator Strange’s 40 percent with 10 percent of the voters undecided,” said Doug Kaplan, the managing partner of Gravis Marketing, the Florida-based firm that ran the poll. The poll carries a 4.1 percent margin of error.
“The dynamics can change if the undecideds break towards Strange,” he said. “Then, there is the factor of how many show up. It’s illegal for Democrats to vote if they voted in the Democratic primary last month, so Strange has to get new Democratic voters, who did not vote in the primary to show up for him.”
Kaplan said the poll was completed before President Donald J. Trump spoke at a rally for Strange Friday, but the inside the poll the numbers suggest that Moore’s lead will hold.
Trump beat former first lady Hillary R. Clinton in the 2016 election, 63 percent to 35 percent, with 588,841 more votes than his Democratic rival.
In the poll, 79 percent of the respondents of the poll have a favorable opinion of the president, he said.
“Strange has Trump, but Moore has Bannon,” Kaplan said. Stephen K. Bannon, the executive chairman of Breitbart News and the president’s for White House strategist and campaign CEO announced Saturday that he is going to Alabama to help Moore.
“Another factor working for Moore is his lead with both voters with a favorable opinion and unfavorable opinion of Trump,” he said.
Among voters with a favorable opinion of the president 47 percent support Moore compared 43 percent supporting Strange, Kaplan said. Among voters with an unfavorable opinion of the president, 58 percent support Moore compares to Strange’s 28 percent.
Moore also leads Strange with Very Likely voters by 11 points, 52 percent to 41 percent, he said.
The former Alabama chief justice has the support of 45 percent of female voters to Strange’s 37 percent, he said. Among men, Moore leads Strange 50 percent to 42 percent.
An interesting bright spot for the senator, who was appointed in February to succeed Attorney General Jefferson B. “Jeff” Sessions, is his support from Catholics.
Sixty-seven percent of Catholics participating in the poll support Strange compared to 31 percent for Moore.
Fewer than 5 percent of the Alabama population is Catholic, but the state is home to one of the most powerful Catholic media operations in the world: ETWN Global Catholic Network. During the last administration, Strange, then the Alabama attorney general, defended ETWN when the outlet refused to obey President Barack Obama’s rule that they would have to provide their employees with free contraception. Using birth control is contrary to the Catholic Church’s teaching.
The was conducted using interactive voice responses and online panels of cell phones with results weighted to match a proprietary voting demographic model.
Poll: Fake News Distorts Trump/Ukraine/Biden Controversy, But the Public Isn’t Buying It
A fake news reporter for the Washington Post laments that the propaganda isn’t working so well.
A majority of the U.S. public does not believe or does not know if President Donald Trump pressured the Ukrainian government to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, according to a recent opinion poll conducted by Monmouth University.
Washington Post fake news hack Aaron Blake lamented about these findings, and the fact that a similar number of people feel that Biden pressured Ukrainian officials to drop an investigation of his son.
Blake released a whining tweet about the matter on Tuesday:
One has an official rough transcript to support it; the other is a highly speculative, dubious claim about Biden.

While Blake claims that the allegation about Trump has an “official rough transcript to support it,” the actual contents of the conversation never showed that any pressure took place. Trump simply asked the Ukraine to help investigate corruption, and assist him in his ongoing quest to drain the swamp.
“I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike … I guess you have one of your wealthy people… The server, they say Ukraine has it,” Trump said to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
“There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it … It sounds horrible to me,” Trump added.
“Since we have won the absolute majority in our Parliament, the next prosecutor general will be 100% my person, my candidate, who will be approved, by the parliament and will start as a new prosecutor in September,” Zelensky responded. “He or she will look into the situation, specifically to the company that you mentioned in this issue.”
“On top of that, I would kindly ask you if you have any additional information that you can provide to us, it would be very helpful for the investigation to make sure that we administer justice in our country,” Zelensky added.
“I will have Mr. Giuliani give you a call and I am also going to have Attorney General Barr call and we will get to the bottom of it,” Trump responded. “I’m sure you will figure it out. I heard the prosecutor was treated very badly and he was a very fair prosecutor so good luck with everything.”
At the same time, Blake has the nerve to say that it is a “highly speculative, dubious claim” that Biden used his power to influence the Ukrainian government to drop an investigation related to his son, Hunter, when he testified on video that he did it in 2016:

Big League Politics reported last week that additional documents have indicated that a wider conspiracy was hatched by Democratic Party operatives to prevent justice from occurring in the Ukraine:
Journalist John Solomon at The Hill obtained a sworn affidavit containing Shokin’s witness statement that was prepared for European court. In the document, Shokin claims he was told that the reason he was fired was due to Biden’s objections to his investigation over Burisma.
“The truth is that I was forced out because I was leading a wide-ranging corruption probe into Burisma Holdings, a natural gas firm active in Ukraine and Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, was a member of the Board of Directors,” Shokin testified…
Solomon also pointed to documents he obtained from Burisma’s team of lawyers in America to back up Shokin’s testimony. The firm’s accounting records show that Burisma gave tens of thousands of dollars to Blue Star Strategies, a public relations and lobbying group that had Hunter Biden on its board.
Blue Star Strategies is run by former administration officials who served under President Bill Clinton, Karen Tramontano and Sally Painter. Painter had a meeting at the Ukrainian embassy in Washington D.C. where she lobbied to meet government officials in Ukraine.
“With regards to the meetings in Kiev, I suggest that you wait until the next week when there is an expected vote of the government’s reshuffle,” Ukrainian embassy employee Oksana Shulyar wrote in an email to Painter following the meeting.
Ukraine’s Washington embassy denies that talk of the “reshuffle” had anything to do with Shokin’s firing. Blue Star also paid a Ukrainian official who they asked for help in scheduling meetings with Ukraine’s prosecutors about the Burisma investigation, according to memos obtained by Solomon.
Blue Star also worked with criminal defense attorney John Buretta. Buretta helped set up a meeting with interim prosecutor Yuriy Sevruk with Tramontano and Painter. The trio apologized for a disinformation campaign that was circulating about Shokin, presumably as apart of the campaign to get him fired.
“They realized that the information disseminated in the U.S. was incorrect and that they would facilitate my visit to the U.S. for the purpose of delivering the true information to the State Department management,” a memo about the meeting stated.
The fake news is angry that they cannot spin away this scandal against the Democrats’ front-runner to challenge for the presidency in 2020, as Biden appears to be obviously guilty of the crimes that they are accusing Trump of committing.
