The new Fox News data is a departure from the RealClearPolitics’s polling average, which has Moore up by 2.5 percentage points. 

According to the Fox News poll, 90 percent of Democrats said they prefer Jones, along with 11 percent of Republicans. Eighty-one percent of Republicans said they prefer Moore.

The Senate race has attracted national attention since allegations against Moore of sexual misconduct involving teenage girls were first reported. Nearly 10 women have come forward with accusations that Moore romantically or sexually pursued them when they were teens and he was in his 30s. One woman said he molested her when she was 14 years old, while another accused Moore of sexually assaulting her when she was 16.

At a campaign rally last Friday near the Alabama border in Pensacola, Fla., Trump urged his supporters who had traveled from Alabama to vote for Moore.

Trump has also released a robocall in support of Moore, repeating calls for Alabamians to vote for a candidate who will further his “Make American Great Again agenda” and not a “liberal Democrat” like Jones, whom Trump called a “puppet of Nancy PelosiNancy Patricia D'Alesandro PelosiPelosi meets with Parkland students and parents, says gun control would be atop Dems’ agenda The Hill's Morning Report — Presented by the Coalition for Affordable Prescription Drugs — Health care a top policy message in fall campaigns Election Countdown: O'Rourke goes on the attack | Takeaways from fiery second Texas Senate debate | Heitkamp apologizes for ad misidentifying abuse victims | Trump Jr. to rally for Manchin challenger | Rick Scott leaves trail to deal with hurricane damage MORE and Chuck SchumerCharles (Chuck) Ellis SchumerThe Hill's Morning Report — Presented by the Coalition for Affordable Prescription Drugs — Health care a top policy message in fall campaigns McConnell says deficits 'not a Republican problem' Medicare for All is disastrous for American seniors and taxpayers MORE.”
