Not surprisingly, MoveOn.org has decided to play the race card to motivate its base.
The left-wing group is sending out emails in the Washington, D.C. area warning that there is a chance that Barack Obama could be defeated because racist Americans have been lying to pollsters. MoveOn is urging members to participate in a “voter-outreach” effort in Arlington, Virginia. Here is the letter [emphasis in original]:
Dear MoveOn member,
Obama’s now ahead in most polls. That’s great, but there’s just one problem: the polls could be wrong.
This is an unprecedented election. No one knows how racism may affect what voters tell pollsters—or what they’ll do in the privacy of the voting booth. And there are plenty of other unknowns.
We can’t afford to take any chances with the most important election of our lifetimes. Whatever the polls say, we all need to get out, talk to voters, and make sure every single Obama supporter makes it to the polls.
The Obama campaign in Arlington needs more volunteers this week for a big voter-outreach effort. Click here to sign up:
Thanks for all you do.
