Democratic Candidate Gains Slight Edge Over Moore in Alabama Senate Race

Senate majority leader says he has looked at "all the options" to prevent Judge Roy Moore from being seated in the U.S. Senate; Mike Emanuel reports from Capitol Hill.

Only 5 percent of Republicans said the allegations are "definitely true", while 12 percent said they're "probably true". That is well within the poll's 4.5-point margin of error, but the survey does show that the allegations of sexual misconduct have severely hurt the Republican candidate who was once seen as the favorite to easily win the race.

After McConnell said Moore should step aside, Moore tweeted that it was McConnell who should bow out of politics, saying he "has failed conservatives and must be replaced". Since then more women have come forward to complain about Moore.

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".
