Trump speaks tonight in Florida, but Alabama voters will be listening

Voters will decide on Tuesday if Moore or his Democratic opponent, former US attorney Doug Jones, will take over the seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. In a state where Republicans have a 14-point partisan advantage, siphoning off a substantial share of Republican votes is critical to Jones' victory. Since 2000, party loyalty rates in presidential elections have averaged 89.2% for Democrats and 91.4% for Republicans.That is to say, if I know nothing about you except your partisan identification, I can predict your vote choice with nearly flawless accuracy.

Trump's Tweet on Monday: Democrats refusal to give even one vote for massive Tax Cuts is why we need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama.

The Moore campaign is encouraging its supporters to attend the rally in Pensacola before the Tuesday election. "It's been 40 years, and you know nothing's ever come out until this election", she added.

"I am leaving while a man who has bragged on tape about his history of sexual assault sits in the oval office and a man who has repeatedly preyed on young girls campaigns for the senate with the full support of his party", Senator Franken said.

Against all odds, Moore has so far weathered sexual misconduct allegations while applying the same unorthodox playbook that many political operatives said wouldn't work for anyone but Trump. "I'm sorry, but just to keep the Democrats out", she said is her reasoning. The inscription says: "To a sweeter, more attractive girl I could not say Merry Christmas".

To understand the area's importance, consider that Moore held his biggest pre-election event - a rally with Steve Bannon a week from Election Day - in Fairhope, in the Mobile media market.

That's what 70-year-old retired teacher Laura Strubel, who opposes Jones' stance in favour of a woman's right to have an abortion, plans to do.

Leslie Goldberg, who is 62 and has lived in the Fairhope area for 25 years, said she felt many Republican voters are hesitant. Richard Shelby told CNN's Jake Tapper he does not want Republican candidate Roy Moore as one of his colleagues. "VOTE ROY MOORE!" Trump planned to hold a rally Friday in Florida in which he'd urge Alabama voters to support Moore. "If they can destroy Roy Moore they can destroy you". "But I wrote in a distinguished Republican name", he said.

Gadsden, the mall where Moore reportedly pursued teenaged girls, is still there, crowded ahead of the Christmas holiday.

Allred added: "We did not ask the expert to examine the printing after the cursive writing and signature, because Beverly indicates that she added that to remind herself of who Roy Moore was and where and when Mr. Moore signed her yearbook". In contrast, a number of senior Republicans in Congress say they believe the women.

It is undeniable that Moore has boosted enthusiasm for Democrats, an endangered species in significant parts of the southern US.

"We can not afford, the future of this country can not afford to lose the seat", Trump said, referring to his party's razor-thin 52-48 advantage in that chamber of Congress.

Democrats know that defeating Moore is a near impossible mission, but as Jones noted, it was just as unlikely that it would snow in early December in Birmingham, which was veiled in white on Saturday.
