President Donald Trump early Monday used Twitter to call for Alabama voters to select GOP candidate Roy Moore for the Senate, saying it's important to keep a Republican in the seat because of Democrats' "refusal to give even one vote for massive tax cuts."

Trump followed up with a second tweet supporting Moore less than an hour later.

In the latest CBS News poll, released Sunday, Moore holds a six-point lead over Democratic challenger Doug Jones, of 49 percent to 43 percent among likely voters in the Dec. 12 special election to fill the seat previously held by now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

The seat had been held temporarily by Luther Strange, who lost his primary bid to keep the seat to Moore, a former state Supreme Court justice.

Trump backed Strange in the primary election, but has since switched to back Moore, who has been dogged by several accusations of sexual misconduct for incidents allegedly occurring four decades ago, when the women were teenagers and he was in his early 30s.

However, the poll found that 71 percent of Alabama Republicans think the claims are false and that Democrats and the media are to blame for the allegations.
