Negative attacks ads work. Politics is an ugly business, and besmirching your opponent’s name is a time-honored way to boost your own appeal.
So it’s not surprising that Doug Jones’ campaign released a bevy of critical ads this week, but it might have been unnecessary. His opponent, Roy Moore, is doing a pretty good job of ruining his reputation all by himself.
Moore is a pervert, and the entire country knows it. His supporters are being looked at like two-headed dogs. It’s inexplicable. Nearly a dozen women claim that Moore molested or harassed them while they were still girls.
Jones’ latest campaign ads use Republicans’ own words to attack Moore. Ivanka Trump is mentioned; her comments about the child molester appearing on all-black screen.
“There is a special place in hell for people who prey on children,” Ivanka said. “I’ve yet to see a valid explanation, and I have no reason to doubt the victims’ accounts.”
Ivanka was quick to condemn Moore, while her father has been more cautious. President Trump first said that Moore should step down if the accusations against him are true, but this week he clarified that he desires a conservative in the Senate, dislikes Doug Jones, and wants to believe Moore’s claims of innocence.
Will Alabama voters agree with the president? Or will they side with Ivanka?
Polls are all over the place. One minute pollsters predict that Jones will have an easy victory, while the next they’re claiming that Alabamians are going to stand by Moore.
The race between the Democrat and the pedophile won’t be officially decided until next month.
