Roy Moore campaign strategist Dean Young is accusing Fox News of putting out fake polls that show the Alabama Republican losing his December Senate special election. 

"You get Fox News to put out their fake polls and everybody else can too, but he’s still winning and he’s never been losing because the people of Alabama don’t go for what you’re trying to sell," Young said at a Tuesday press event alongside two other Moore defenders, according to The Washington Post.

A Nov. 16 Fox News poll put Democratic candidate Doug Jones ahead by 8 points among likely Alabama voters going into the Dec. 12 special election, 50 percent 42 percent, following multiple accusations that Moore sexually harassed or assaulted teenage girls.

Young denied Fox's numbers and noted that Moore was "over 6 points ahead still" in another poll.


The campaign strategist slammed the "fake media" for its coverage of Moore and singled out The Washington Post, which published the first batch of sexual misconduct accusations against Moore.

"The Washington Post and all the fake media for the last two weeks have said everything they could say about Judge Moore. They’re trying to dig people up, put them on TV and say, ‘Judge Moore is a bad guy,' " Young said. 

Moore and his campaign have thoroughly denied the allegations, dismissing the testimonies as politically motivated attacks to derail his campaign. A number of right-wing sites have floated a theory that the Post solicited the testimonies from women. 

"We don’t believe these women. It’s just that simple. And y’all can keep trotting them out if you want to, but we’re not going to talk about that. We’re going to talk about helping Donald Trump make American great again," Young continued.
