Yesterday, a Cygnal poll for Alabama Daily News found Republican congressman Mo Brooks cratering in the GOP Senate primary: 

Gray TV/AL Daily News Poll by Cygnal, +/-4%

Mike Durant – 34.6%

Katie Britt – 28.4%

Mo Brooks – 16.1%

Lillie Boddie – 6.5%

Karla Dupriest – 0%

Jake Schafer – 0%

Undecided – 14.4%

“It’s hard to ignore the real story here, Mo Brooks sliding,” says Alabama Daily News Publisher Todd Stacy. “Only 16% in this poll, that’s down from 40% of the electorate in August, that’s an incredible slide that I have you to attribute to him not getting his message out–he’s not had a whole lot of ads that really support his campaign, but more importantly he’s had about $1.5 million dollars of ads spent from PACS attacking him.”

Today, former president Donald Trump announced he’s withdrawing his endorsement of Brooks, saying that Brooks has gone “woke” about the 2020 election.
