Some early exit polls are out, and they have found that Trump’s approval rating at 48%.

NBC News reports that 60 percent of voters made up their minds before November. The sexual misconduct allegations against Moore surfaced on November 9.

According to CNN’s exit polling, “four in 10 voters say the allegations were an important factor in their vote, while a majority says they were not an important factor. Still, fewer than 1 in 10 said the allegations were the most important factor in their vote on Tuesday. One in 3 voters said the allegations weren’t a factor at all. Almost 9 in 10 supporters of Jones say they believe the allegations against Moore are true, while 9 in 10 Moore voters say they are false.”
