    Alabama is one of the most Republican states in the union.  Donald Trump coasted to victory in the state with 63% of the vote. But the Senate race in Alabama may be an indication of how much trouble the GOP is in with voters – even with voters of their own party.  A new Fox News Poll shows Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones neck and neck with less than two months before the December 12 special election to replace Jeff Sessions, who resigned to become attorney general. Republican Roy Moore, the anti-Republican establishment candidate, is tied at 42 percent apiece...

Moore told the Associated Press that he never received the money. Moore called the Posts reporting untrue, reported, and Armistead said the stories were based on...

    In Alabamas Republican Senate primary on Tuesday, Steve Bannon defeated Donald Trump. The states GOP voters showed how sharply divided their party is. And right-wing insurgents were given a license to challenge Republican incumbents all over the country in 2018. Judge Roy Moores victory over Senator Luther Strange was a sign of just how extreme Republican rank-and-filers have become. Moore, who believes biblical law should override the Constitution, beat Strange 55 percent to 45 percent. What Donald Trump has done, said Republican pollster Whit Ayres, is embolden the Roy Moores of the world. The judges views can only be called...

    Roy Moore is probably going to be the next senator from Alabama, and thats true no matter what the Democratic Party says or does about it. Alabama is, for starters, Alabama. Jeff Sessions was rejected for a federal judgeship by the United States Senate on the grounds that he was too racist, and a couple of years later, Alabama Republicans nominated him for a Senate seat and he won. Theres no reason at all to think that Moore cant follow the same trail hes blazed. Beyond that, America is a much more polarized place that it was in the 1980s....
