Dec. 3 (UPI) -- The majority of Republicans in Alabama believe the sexual allegations against Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore are false, according to a poll released today.
The CBS/YouGov poll found that 36 percent of the state's Republican voters said the allegations are "definitely false" and another 35 percent said they're "probably false."
Only 5 percent of Republicans said the allegations are "definitely true," while 12 percent said they're "probably true." Another 12 percent said they haven't heard enough to make a determination.
Among Democrats, the numbers are almost reversed. Forty-six percent said the allegations are "definitely true" and 40 percent said they're "probably true." Only 2 percent said they're "definitely false" and 5 percent said they're "probably false," while 7 percent said they don't know enough to have an opinion.
About 40 percent of women from either party have doubts about the allegations, with 18 percent saying they are "definitely false" and 22 percent saying they're "probably false." A total of 49 percent of women lean toward the allegations being true and 10 percent don't have an opinion.
Several women have accused Moore of pursuing relationships with them when they were under the age of 18 during the late 1970's and early 1980's when the now-Senate candidate was a district attorney in his 30's.
Moore has repeatedly denied the allegations.
The CBS News/YouGov poll concluded that despite those allegations, Moore appears to have the confidence of Republican voters in the highly conservative state.
The poll found that Moore has a comfortable six-point lead over his opponent, Democratic candidate Doug Jones, 49 percent to 43 percent, with a margin of error of less than 5 percent. And the top reason 52 percent Alabama Republicans gave for sticking with Moore is because they believe he'll cast conservative votes. Less than half -- 48 percent -- said he's the best candidate for the job.
The Alabama Senate vote will be held on Dec. 12.
