A majority of Americans think the Senate should expel Roy Moore if he wins next month’s election, a new poll shows.

Sixty percent of those included in the Quinnipiac University poll said Moore should be expelled if he defeats Democrat Roy Moore on Dec. 12. Twenty-eight percent said they didn’t think Moore should be expelled; 12 percent weren’t sure.

Moore has been accused of having improper sexual contact with two teenage girls in the 1970s, charges he denies. The accusations led to calls for Moore to exit the race along with some Senators saying they would move to expel him if he defeats Jones.

“Roy Moore may make it to the Senate chambers, but an overwhelming majority of American voters would like to rip the welcome mat out from under him and send him packing back to Alabama,” pollsters noted.

Republicans were split 49 percent to 33 percent against expulsion. Every other group – Democrats, men and women and all levels of education, as well as different ages and racial groups – thought Moore should be expelled.

Eighty-four percent of Democrats think Moore should be removed from office if elected.

The same poll showed 62 percent of American voters said they would not support a candidate if multiple women accused that person of sexual harassment; 27 percent said they would consider voting for the candidate. Republicans are divided as 43 percent said they would consider voting for the candidate and 41 percent said they definitely would not vote for the candidate.

The poll was conducted Nov. 15-20 with a margin of error of 3.1 percent.
