WASHINGTON - Roy Moore, the Republican candidate for Senate in Alabama, lost his lead in the race after allegations that he had sexual contact with teenagers years ago, and the election is now a toss-up, a new poll indicated Sunday.

Moore trails Democratic candidate Doug Jones 46 percent to 42 percent among Alabama voters, a lead for the Democrat that is well within the poll's margin of error of 4.1 points, according to the new survey by Louisiana-based JMC Analytics.

The poll showed Democrats united behind Jones, but Republicans split over whether to support Moore. It also showed that Moore's campaign had largely failed to convince the state's voters that Jones is too far to the left - only 31 percent of poll respondents said they saw him as a "liberal," with 26 percent calling him moderate and 37 percent saying they did not know.
