Moore, Jones are tied — Fox poll

President Donald Trump meets with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell R-Ky. at the White House Monday Oct. 16 2017 in Washington

GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore says it's illegal for NFL players to silently protest police killings of Black people by taking a knee instead of standing for the National Anthem. Moore argued. "It was a act of Congress that every man stand and put their hand over their heart".

Disputes over players kneeling over the national anthem have been at the forefront of national news, as politicians debate over the motives of the protests.

He founded Foundation for Moral Law and collected more than $1 million in compensation from 2007 to 2012 even though he said he did not take a "regular salary" from the charity, according to the Washington Post.

The football player, who is now a free agent, stated that he was protesting against police brutality towards African Americans. In 2003, the judge was suspended from the court after he refused a federal order to remove a statue of the Ten Commandments from judicial property.

The poll reasserts Republicans' dismay that Moore who crusades on a theocratic, anti-LGBT message and has twice been overthrown as state Supreme Court chief justice, once for declining to discard a Ten Commandments obelisk and once for denying following the Supreme Court's pronouncement legitimizing same-sex marriage would be antagonistically helpless aspirant in a state President Donald Trump won past year by 28 percentage points.

Of the Jones supporters, 35 percent said their primary reason for voting for him is "party loyalty/against GOP", while 32 percent responded that they were against Moore and thought him too extreme or risky.

On December 12, Moore will face Democrat Doug Jones in a special election to fill the Senate seat vacated by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Nine percent remain undecided in the exclusive poll conducted on Monday.
