Gov. Bob Riley continues to widen his lead over Roy Moore in the Republican gubernatorial primary ....I'm not shocked that Moore is trailing the governor, but I am surprised he's behind by a whopping 49 percentage points.
The Press-Register/University of South Alabama poll showed Riley as the choice of 69 percent of the likely GOP primary voters surveyed. Moore, the former Alabama Supreme Court chief justice known as the "Ten Commandments judge," drew 20 percent support.
It speaks volumes about Judge Moore's nutiness that he can't poll any better than this in a conservative state against an incumbent who vigorously campaigned for a tax increase.
