Most voters say Republican Roy Moore should be expelled from the Senate if he wins Tuesday's special election in Alabama, according to a Morning Consult/Politico poll released as people were lining up to vote.
The Dec. 8-11 survey found 61 percent of registered voters from around the United States do not want the Alabama Supreme Court judge to have a Senate seat. That number has increased 4 points from 57 percent in a Nov. 16-19 survey by the same companies.
Only 17 percent of people think Moore should be allowed to stay in office following nearly a dozen women's claims that he sexually harassed or assaulted them as minors or young women. That percentage dropped 1 point since last month.
Forty-five percent of Republicans want him kicked out compared to 29 percent who disagree and the 26 percent who do not have an opinion. However, some experts noted this week that it might be close to impossible to kick Moore out should he win.
Fifty-two percent of voters say the Republican National Committee made the wrong choice by reinstating its support for Moore after initially pulling the plug on campaign funds for him. Moore is running against Democrat Doug Jones in Tuesday's special election.
The online poll was conducted among 1,955 registered voters nationwide and had a 2 percentage point margin of error.
