Alabama's voters did their job at the polls on December 12, last year when a special election was held meant to choose the successor of the current attorney-general Jeff Sessions who held that very same senatorial seat prior to his appointment.
The accomplishment of the aforesaid voting population had the two principal political parties in suspense when the Democratic candidate, Doug Jones, won the election over the Republican candidate, Roy Moore.
Even before the victory of the Democrat was announced in that Alabama election, the nation's citizenry read the signs that the Republican party could be confronted with trouble in future elections in the years ahead, i.e., the congressional mid-terms scheduled in 2018.
News analysts have considered the aforementioned Alabama senatorial election to view reasons to anticipate a Democratic surge.
The same election, analyzed as the culmination of an atypical race became the most recent evidence illustrating the firm duties of voters who would, without too much electioneering by candidates, be capable of expressing their choice to represent them not only in the legislative branch, but in the two others: executive and judicial sectors.
Shortly after Democrat Jones' win over Republican Moore, the latter candidate vigorously contested the outcome of the polls' choice. Moore sued. He lost.
Alabama officials certified the special election's results officially naming Democrat Jones, the winner. Word was sent around earlier that Moore's lawsuit claiming voter fraud had "tainted the election results," as their request for a postponement of the delay of certification was turned down. Moore, per the official results, lost the vote by l.63 percent after all the vote-counting was accomplished.
Despite the certification of Alabama's officials, Moore called for a special election on the December vote's outcome. The Moore request was called a "weak complaint" while John Merrill, the Secretary of State announced that the latest Moore action "would not stop the election results from being certified."
Judging from academe's voices on the same election's outcome which has not been conceded by Candidate Moore who still wishes to pursue his rationale about the election results, Rick Hassen, an election law professor at the University of California, Irvine said: "It is a very weak complaint. It does not rely on any election experts I've ever heard of and it makes claims that on their face do not appear to be plausible or appear to be irrelevant."
Reportedly, some so-called "prominent conservatives who allege voter fraud is more prevalent than evidence currently suggests," declined to discuss the Moore complaint.
However, J. Christian Adams, a member of the president's voter integrity commission and an election lawyer called the same Moore challenge "crazy," as noted in a tweet, and added that it was a "humiliating day" for "people who care about voter fraud and election integrity."
Another commentary surfaced when Loyola Law School professor, Justin Levitt, a former Department of Justice official who zeroed in on voting rights, noted how "voter fraud is not widespread, occurring only in isolated and rare instances."
"Mr. Moore does not appear to have anything other than wishful thinking," Professor Levitt added, as media reporting was sought on that same Moore complaint.
Questions on the Jones' victory should no longer appear on the scene based on the same Moore call.
Alabama officials' certification naming the winner of that special senatorial election came after a judge rejected a last-minute challenge from Moore, who went down in defeat despite his clamor about a "fraudulent election."
Democrat Jones, the winner, issued a statement on how he was "looking forward to going to work for the people of Alabama in the new year."
As the loser's last try by Moore and his campaign went its expected array, in defeat, his refusal to concede still prevails.
In view of the victory of Democrat Jones, it was highly noted that the Republicans may be in trouble in future elections ahead.
Nationwide, reports have arisen: Democrats over performed in dozens of other special elections held earlier.
Some polling results have given the Democratic party "a distinct advantage in enthusiasm ahead."
