Nine women reportedly have made allegations against 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".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
