Hold your breaths. As Moveon.org is weighing their endorsement for president, the liberal organization has emailed a secret ballot to their members asking them to weigh in. If the vote comes in against Obama, the group notes, they will not spend any resources on the presidential election.
Dear MoveOn member,
We have a big decision to make.
At MoveOn, members vote on any election endorsements we make. Today we need to decide whether to make an endorsement in the presidential race. The outcome of the election is far from decided—polls are showing that this could be a very tight race—so our work could make a big difference.
If MoveOn members vote to endorse President Obama, we’ll campaign hard to re-elect Obama and to defeat Mitt Romney. If MoveOn members choose not to endorse Obama, we won’t spend our time and resources on the presidential election. It’s up to you.
So it’s time to ask the question: Should MoveOn endorse President Obama?
