    Pull the top off a dandelion weed and it just grows back, right? Case in point: Roy Moore is a corrupt politician who has used his position to harass, and demean women, among his many other misdeeds, he was removed from office twice for ethics violations. Roy Moore is the weed, but the real root of the problem is the fact that many voters in Alabama still plan to vote for him. Polls show Roy Moore is only down 8-12 points, and given the fact that the word Democrat is something that Alabama voters detest bitterly, don't be surprised if Roy is elected. Until the root of the problem is corrected, Alabama and most of the south will simply continue to grow additional Roy Moores.

    If Moore is defeated it will send a strong signal that Alabama voters DO care about character and conduct.

    Based on the fundamentals, you'd normally assume a generic GOP candidate would win Alabama by 20 points or more.

    That may be true, but this is not "normally"
