Democratic candidate for Senate Doug Jones has a slight lead over his Republican opponent Roy Moore in a public opinion poll recently released about the Alabama special election.

A poll of 500 voters conducted by JMC Polling and Analytics November 9 and 11 in cities across the state showed Jones ahead at 46 percent among likely voters who said they would support Jones if the election was held tomorrow. Moore drew a 42 percent response, with 9 percent saying they were undecided.

Moore had held a healthy lead in the election to fill the position of former Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, who was named U.S. attorney general by President Donald Trump. On Thursday, a report in The Washington Post revealed allegations Moore engaged in sexual misconduct four decades ago in incidents involving teenaged women.

Moore has vehemently denied the charges, and has claimed they were "politically motivated."

"I believe they’re politically motivated," Moore said of the allegations in an interview with Sean Hannity on Friday. "I believe they were brought on to stop a very successful campaign. And that's what they're doing."

The survey's margin of error is 4.1 percent. Respondents were from Birmingham, Dothan, Huntsville, Mobile and Montgomery. The election will take place Dec. 12.

JMC Polling and Analytics is based in Baton Rouge, La., and specializes in political consulting, political analysis and public opinion polling.
