Sixty-one percent of voters nationwide say Republican Roy Moore should be expelled from the Senate if he wins Tuesday’s election in Alabama, a new Politico/Morning Consult poll reveals.

The poll found 17 percent of voters believe Congress should not expel him.

Moore has been accused of pursuing and molesting teenage girls while he was in his 30s, Politico noted.

Here is how the poll breaks down:

  • 45 percent of Republicans polled favored expelling him if he wins, while 29 percent were against it
  • 77 percent of Democrats say he should be expelled compared to 7 percent who opposed it
  • 59 percent of independents favored expelling him, while 16 percent were against it
  • 20 percent of all those polled say the Republican National Committee’s decision to reinstate its support for Moore was the right thing to do, while 52 percent say it was wrong

"The RNC’s decision to back Roy Moore could have a negative impact on voter support down the road," said Morning Consult Co-Founder and Chief Research Officer Kyle Dropp. "That being said, most voters still say they vote more based off a candidate's policy positions than his or her character."

The poll, conducted Dec. 8-11, surveyed 1,955 registered voters. The margin of error is plus or minus 2 percentage points.
