Taking a closer look at what are undecided voters are thinking: 6% said the allegations made them MORE likely to vote for Roy Moore. 44% said the allegations made them LESS likely to vote for Roy Moore. 51% said they were undecided or that the allegations made no difference in their vote.The FOX10 News/Strategy Research survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percent. It involved a random landline, triple qualified sample. To be counted, respondents must be active, registered voters; having voted in either the November, 2016 presidential election or one of the U.S. Senate primaries in the summer of 2017; they must also be self identified in the poll as someone certain to vote in the election.
