Dear MoveOn member,  

Happy New Year, and welcome to 2008—President Bush's last year in office.

It's going to be a big year: we're planning huge campaigns for the White House and Senate, new programs to help even more people get involved in progressive politics, and advocacy campaigns on Iraq, civil liberties, health care, and the climate crisis.

Some folks have asked us if MoveOn will hold a presidential primary endorsement vote this year. Over the past year, we've been asking about 30,000 MoveOn members each week, picked at random, to tell us who you favored in the Democratic presidential primary. It wasn't a binding vote, but it helped us get a sense of your thinking. Here are the results of that survey:

As the graph shows, this is a dynamic process, and members haven't lined up behind any one candidate yet. But with the Iowa caucuses tomorrow, we may see significant shifts as the landscape changes.

So we've significantly increased the number of MoveOn members we're surveying each week, and if any candidate's support goes over 50%, we'll launch a more formal endorsement process with a vote.

Stay tuned, and keep a close eye on your email—it's going to be a wild ride this year, and we want you with us every step of the way.

John Edwards is looking good on those sruvey results.

I hope everyone's joined my Edwards group!

I'm confident he's going to do very well tomorrow and next week.
