POLL: Democrat Senator Doug Jones Trailing by Double Digits Over GOP Rival Tuberville

A new Auburn University poll is bad news for Democrat incumbent Senator Doug Jones.

The poll gives Republican Tommy Tuberville a 12% lead over Jones by a margin of 54% to 42%.

David Hughes, an assistant professor of political science and director of AUM Poll said “Poll results show that Tuberville enjoys his widest levels of support among voters who are white, older, have less education, and belong to an evangelical congregation. These trends typify voting today.”

He added “Modern Republican politics continues to emphasize much of the culture war issues like same-sex marriage, law and order, and illegal immigration that dominated American politics over the past 20-30 years.”

Tuberville has led in every single poll tracked by 270towin.
