MoveOn Refuses to Poll Members in Clinton Race

MoveOn has declined to poll its members regarding the U.S. Senate race in New York, despite having done so in Connecticut. It is critical for MoveOn members to be aware that Hillary Clinton has an anti-war opponent in Jonathan Tasini. Please ask MoveOn to poll its members regarding the U.S. Senate race in New York.

Please take 5 minutes of your time and send a message today by going to the MoveOn homepage at

*Jonathan Tasini is running with an anti-war message against incumbent Senator
Hillary Clinton.

* has not yet polled its members in this race as it did in Connecticut.

*Much of the institutional media has denied New York voters their right to know about Tasini’s candidacy and the issues for which he stands.

*We challenge MoveOn to poll its members. Ask them if should take a position on the New York Democratic primary race for U.S. Senate.

*MoveOn, please keep democracy alive in New York!
