Judge Roy Moore leads the Democratic candidate by just 8 points in the Alabama special election for the open Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Alabama's Cygnal polling firm found Moore leads Doug Jones by 8 points, The Hill reports, and the RealClearPolitics composite polling reports the same margin.

Moore, twice-removed from the state Supreme Court for putting his beliefs before law, defeated interim and sitting Sen. Luther Strange by 9 points in the special Republican primary.

Moore's favorables are 10 points better than Jones in dead-red Alabama, and Jones' unknown-quotient is 15 points worse than Moore; 18 percent of Alabamans have never heard of Jones, compared to just 3 percent for Moore.

The special election will be held Dec. 12.
