Sixty percent of voters nationwide said Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore should withdraw from the election set for December 12 due to the sexual misconduct allegations against him, according to a new Politico/Morning Consult poll released on Tuesday.

Only 16 percent said Moore should continue his campaign, and 24 percent were undecided.

Other results from the survey indicate:

  • Even among Republicans, only half said that Moore should continue in the race for the Senate seat.
  • Fifty-nine percent of voters overall said they considered the allegations against Moore as described in a Washington Post article last week, that he had sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl when he was in his 30s, as very or somewhat credible.
  • Only 17 percent said the allegations are not too credible or not credible at all, while 23 percent said they did not know or had no opinion.
  • Among GOP supporters, 49 percent said the accusations against him are at least somewhat credible, while 30 percent of Republicans said they are not too credible or not credible at all

The poll was conducted between Nov. 9 and 11, before the most recent allegations against Moore leveled by Beverly Young Nelson, who said on Monday that he also sexually assaulted her when she was 16 years old. The poll surveyed 1,993 registered voters. The margin of error is plus or minus 2 percentage points.

Although Moore, who defeated interim Sen. Luther Strange in the September GOP primary runoff, insists that all the allegations are completely false, fellow Republican, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, on Monday said Moore "should step aside."

National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman Cory Gardner added that if Moore refuses to withdraw and wins, then "the Senate should vote to expel him, because he does not meet the ethical and moral requirements of the United States Senate."
