Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore is favored by 55 percent of the state's voters, while his Democratic opponent, Doug Jones is backed by 45 percent, a new Emerson College poll reveals.

"The poll was conducted Nov. 9-11, in the immediate aftermath of a Washington Post story detailing allegations of sexual advances of Moore with an underage woman within the past 40 years," says a report accompanying the poll results.

Here are the highlights from the Alabama survey released Monday:

  • 28 percent of the polled said the Post story influence who they backed, while 59 percent said the newspaper's report made no difference.
  • 42 percent gave Moore a favorable rating, compared to 37 percent who did not.
  • 31 percent rated Jones favorably, compared to 40 percent who gave him an unfavorable rating.
  • 58 percent of those polled approved of the job Donald Trump is doing as president, compared to 36 percent who did not.

According to the pollster, the 10-point gap between the two candidates represents a closing of the margin. An Emerson poll in September had shown Moore in the lead by 22 points.

Six hundred people were polled. The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.9 percent.
