Moore leads Strange by 8 points in new poll

MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) - We're less than a week away from the primary election and a poll by Cygnal and L2 shows Judge Roy Moore ahead of incumbent Senator Luther Strange with a lead of more than 8 points.

According to the poll, Moore is ahead of Strange at 30.7% to Strange's 22.6%.

The poll also shows that Mo Brooks trails Moore by 13 points. If there were a runoff, Moore leads Strange by more than 10 points.

"We're not at all shocked by these results. I expect Moore and Strange in the runoff election, but Strange hasn't locked down the second spot yet," said Brent Buchanan, the president of Cygnal. "It will be interesting to see if President Trump's endorsement of Senator Strange increases voter turnout, which should favor Strange according to our survey results."

The survey was conducted August 8 through August 9. Included results were from 502 likely Republican primary voters.

Cygnal is a Montgomery based polling, communication, and digital firm and L2 is a national nonpartisan voter data and analytics provider. The poll is public and unaffiliated with any campaign.
