Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Robert Kennedy, Jr. lead the list of U.S. Senate candidates in an exclusive, FOX10 News/Strategy Research statewide telephone survey conducted August 7.

However, neither candidate has enough support to avoid an anticipated runoff election, September 26.  The winner of each runoff will meet December 12 to determine Alabama’s next U.S. Senator.

Republicans who plan to vote in the August 15 primary favored the former Alabama Chief Justice over his nearest opponent, incumbent Senator Luther Strange, with Rep. Mo Brooks placing third with 19%.  Trip Pittman of Montrose had 9%.  Here are the standings:

  • Roy Moore: 35%
  • Luther Strange: 29%
  • Mo Brooks:  19%
  • Trip Pittman: 9%
  • Mary Maxwell: 4%

James Beretta, Joseph Breault, Randy Brinson and Bryan Peeples received 1%.

The race among the Democrats appears to be between Robert Kennedy, Jr. and Doug Jones.  Here are the results of the Democrat survey:

  • Robert Kennedy, Jr.  40%
  • Doug Jones  30%
  • Will Boyd  9%
  • Michael Hansen  7%
  • Vann Caldwell 5%
  • Charles Nana 5%
  • Jason Fisher  3%

The poll of 2,000 respondents, has a margin of error of plus or minus 2%.
