montgomery - The polling stations in Alabama are open. The voters among the 4.8 million inhabitants of the American state will judge the controversial Republican candidate Roy Moore in the coming hours and indirectly about the politics of President Trump.
Moore (70) takes on the Democrat Doug Jones (63). Alabama is traditionally a Republican state, but Moore has been discredited for alleged sexual harassment in the 1970s and 1980s. He certainly denies, but the doubt has remained. The polls result in a neck-and-neck race, with 46 percent of the votes for both.
If Jones can sit in the Senate, the Republicans will have the smallest possible majority left: 51 out of 100 seats.
