Doug Jones: ‘We’re better than tied’ with Roy Moore

Alabama Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Doug Jones said Monday he believes his campaign is “better than tied” with Republican Roy Moore on the heels of a Fox News poll that showed Jones was on par with Moore, who had been leading in every other survey.

“I think were better than tied,” Jones said during an appearance Monday on CNN. “We have been seeing such an energy throughout Alabama, from one end of the state to the other. People want change, people are sensing change. They don’t want any more chaos. They see a dysfunctional Washington, D.C., and they want someone who can reach across aisles and try to have dialogue with people and talk to people. That’s the only way we can ever get things done, and they understand that Roy Moore is not that kind of figure. He is nothing but a divisive and polarizing figure.”

The race between Jones and Moore had already been receiving sizable national attention before a Fox News poll released last week showed the two candidates tied at 42 percent apiece.

While polling experts contacted by said the Fox News survey was an outlier, Jones said he believes he is leading the race, although he did not say his campaign’s internal polling backed up that sentiment.

    Lets hope the poll that counts puts Jones in the lead, the election. Moore should never get to Washington. He doesn’t respect the system he wishes to be part of. He will damage the republican party and the nation more then any democrats could. Trump was right in not backing Moore in the primary.

      Come on Bob, you would love to have someone, anyone, “damage the republican party”. He has to be the right man for the job if you’re against him.

        You still don’t get it. I’m a Republican, have been all my life. My father, grand father were Republicans. I have served as an elected official in the Republican party. I just don’t like stupid people and my party has become the stupid party. Moore is a prime example of stupid.

          You might just be that example!!!!

          Your father and grand father where Republicans. That doesn’t make you a Republican. You served as an elected official in the Republican Party. That’s not impressive. Put your name on a ballot for a public office but you’re too chicken shit to do that. You think that because your father and grand father served in the military that some how makes you knowledgeable about the military even though you where a draft dodger. You’e a fake, a fraud and a liberal left wing democ-rat, AND an ass hole.

      A dummycrat should never been elected to anything. The whole stinking outfit is driven by the communist party with nothing in mind accept destruction of our Nation.
      Moore is a good man with more knowledge than Jones will ever have. NO! He will not hurt the Repub-A-Flub RINO party. Fact is, he will be a thorn in their stupid sides!!!
