    Poll results show write-in candidate Lee Busby may be a Moore election spoiler

    Poll results show write-in candidate Lee Busby may be a Moore election spoiler







    The newest Emerson College poll shows Democrat Doug Jones pulling within just three percentage points of Republican Roy Moore in the Senate seat race.

    The poll included write-in candidate Lee Busby who received 5 percent of the vote. Moore led the three with 49 percent support and Jones trailed close behind with 46 percent. Busby’s name will not appear on the December 12 special election ballot.

    Why this matters: Busby may become a Moore spoiler since his supporters in the poll largely identified themselves as Republicans, said Emerson professor Spencer Kimball in a podcast.

    The details:

    — The survey asked 500 “very likely” voters, “If the special election for Alabama’s U.S. Senate seat were today, for whom would you vote or lean towards voting?”
    — The poll has a margin of error of 4.3 percent, so it could be even more of a dead heat than reported.
    — A previous Emerson poll, taken before Busby announced his write-in campaign and immediately after allegations broke of Moore’s sexual misconduct, showed Moore leading Jones by 10 percentage points (55 percent to 45 percent).
    — In that poll, 28 percent of voters said The Washington Post story affected their vote, while 59 percent said it had no effect on their decision.
    — A new CBS / YouGov poll has 71 percent of Republican likely voters saying the allegations against Moore are false.

    Bottom line:

    If Busby and Jones supporters turn out come election day, it may make just enough a difference to make Jones the winner, despite the overwhelming majority of Republican voters who do not believe the Moore allegations are true.

    Sounds like a GOP ringer to me.

    Oorah! Alabama Marine launches write-in candidacy against Roy Moore and Doug Jones





    Retired Colonel Lee Busby (Southern Living/YouTube)


    A retired Marine Corps colonel from Tuscaloosa has launched a long shot write-in campaign seeking to outflank Roy Moore and Doug Jones in next month’s special election, reported the Washington Post.

    “I just don’t believe that either one of them are qualified to be in the U.S. Senate,” said retired Colonel Lee Busby, 60, a veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Why this matters: Busby could mean real trouble for Moore, whose lead has narrowed to single digits in recent days. Though Busby is unlikely to win, his credentials and beliefs may provide a justifiable option for some GOP voters who feel they cannot vote for Moore but who would never vote for a pro-abortion rights candidate like Jones.
    The details:

    Lee once served as an aide to White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly when both were on active duty.

    — He told the newspaper that he voted for moderate Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich in the last presidential primary and then Donald Trump in the general.

    Lee told the Post that he attended a fundraiser for Jones earlier this year but didn’t contribute.

    — The colonel said he supports lowering taxes, repealing Obamacare and restricting abortion.

    — He said that life begins at conception, adding that “at some point, (the fetus) becomes a human life … and you have to protect those who can’t protect themselves.”

    Lee Busby is a spoiler planted in the race by DC insiders trying to stop Judge Roy Moore from reaching the Senate and he is an old ally and confidant of Trump's chief of Staff and past DHS head John Kelly!

    Chances are high that Trump's John Kelly talked Lee Busby into the race to thwart Moore.

    Dirty deeds!
