When Doug Jones voted to convict President Trump, he acknowledged it may cost him politically.
Now a new Alabama poll is proving him right on that fear.
Jones has the highest unfavorable rating of all candidates at 47%, with a massive -15% gap between favorable and unfavorable.
Tommy Tuberville holds a 8% lead over Jones.
The other likely Republican opponent for Jones, Jeff Sessions, holds an even larger 13% lead over Jones.
As if that was not bad enough for Jones, it’s clear President Trump is very popular in the state, trouncing all rivals by 14-27%.
The race for Republican nominee is very tight between Sessions and Tuberville.
Per AlabamaDailyNews, with less than three weeks to go until the primary election on March 3, a new Alabama Daily News poll shows a tight race among Republican contenders for the U.S. Senate.
According to the survey of likely Republican voters, if the election were held today, 31% would vote for former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, 29% would choose former Auburn football coach Tommy Tuberville and 17% would choose Congressman Bradley Byrne.
Five percent said they would choose former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, and no other candidate registered more than 1%. Sixteen percent of voters said they were undecided.
