It's a FOX news poll that gives the edge to Jones and give Obama a higher number that the Dumpster Fire, so I guess they are campaigning for the Ds?
As I've pointed out before, the actual split for Fox news stories is 52-48% Dem.

one of my favorite pictures of the 2016 election




but I think he was the most reasonable at 70% chance Clinton wins the Presidency. NY Times had it at 98% chance.

The Huffington Post thing was absolute nonsense at the time and it made no sense. That dude had the audacity to claim Nate Silver was fudging his numbers because his model didn't have nearly the same certainty. it was always much closer than people liked to believe.
That is not what you said just prior to the election.

But I would really like to know why progs are all about polls. I've said it many times, the Republicans should just encourage their voters to not take polls, or to give inaccurate answers. The accurate polls, IBD and Rassmussen got the numbers right (Rassmussen had Hillary up 3%, but warned that any Dem has about a 3% error in their favor because of CA allowing anyone to vote).

Let me present a hypothetical. Suppose you support Moore on the theory you would rather elect a pedophile than a Democrat. You can't say that! So you say the "right" thing to the pollster. That is exactly what happened with polling about Trump. I happen to believe that AL is conservative enough to reject the pedophile, but that is a different issue.

Is this Nelson babe the 14 year old?

Nebraska’s best resource is their underground water. The state shouldn’t risk it. Jmo

Interesting. I've taken a look and there's nothing VISIBLE about Nebraska that I would describe as a resource, not to mention anything meriting the label ``best''. Save for Wiz. Best butt-of-all-jokes ever.

The Fox poll is fine, but it is just one poll and your best bet is to take an average of the polls. Moore is up 2 in an aggregate and it depends on the electorate. The makeup of the electorate is important and that's where the Fox News poll might be important it make indicate a depressed electorate on one side not willing to answer a poll. That may or may not indicate an unwillingness to trudge out to the poll to pull the lever for Moore.
Moore is going to win. He is playing the victim card and the morons are buying it.

He is playing the victim card. I think it's pretty clear he is an absolute creep and he is going to win.

Neil Young Lyrics
"Alabama"

Oh Alabama
The devil fools
with the best laid plan.
Swing low Alabama
You got spare change
You got to feel strange
And now the moment
is all that it meant.

He is likely to win. vast majority of Republicans in AL don't trust the Washington DC hometown news paper, or Gloria Allred.

We can't know if they are true, but they are credible. Details about the stories are backed up by facts.
