A just-released CBS News poll shows a resurgent Roy Moore, with Republican voters ignoring nine fearless women who came forward to tell their stories of alleged child molestation, sexual assault, and pursuit of teenaged girls while the Republican candidate for Alabama's open Senate seat was in his 30's.

Moore had repeatedly denied the allegations.

According to the CBS poll, 71 percent of Alabama Republicans say the allegations against Moore are false, and believe that Democrats and the media are behind the accusations.

This comes as the Republican has been targeted by Democrats and the mainstream media for unverified allegations from almost 40 years ago, but Moore is fighting back.

During an interview on ABC's "This Week", McConnell was asked whether he thinks Moore should be in the Senate.

The survey - published by CBS News over the weekend - shows Moore has a six point lead over Democrat Doug Jones ahead of the December 12th election.

Jones is leading among women polled by 18%.

Several women have come forward to accuse Mr. Moore of inappropriately touching or pursuing relationships with them when they were teenagers and he was an adult.

Senate majority leader says he has looked at "all the options" to prevent Judge Roy Moore from being seated in the U.S. Senate; Mike Emanuel reports from Capitol Hill. One of the accusers, Leigh Corfman, told The Washington Post she was 14 and Mr. Moore was 32 when he touched her over her underpants and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear.

The sample of 739 likely voters upon which the poll was based included 38 percent who self-identified as Republicans, 31 percent who identified as Democrats, and 27 percent who identified as independents. Even so, fifty-three percent of voters said Jones has higher standards of personal moral conduct, compared to 34 percent who said the same about Moore. No new allegations of sexual misconduct have emerged since around November 15; just this week Moore returned to the campaign trail, after laying low for 11 days.
