Update: New polling

Dear MoveOn member,

If you read one thing about the election today, read this:

The New York Times' chief polling analyst just wrote, "If our forecasts turn out to be biased against Democrats by just 2 points overall, the party becomes about an even-money bet to hold the House." (And then they'd almost certainly keep the Senate, too.)

So a Democratic gain of 2 percentage points is enough to stop the takeover of Congress. And historically, a strong get-out-the-vote push can deliver at least that much on Election Day.

That's why this weekend MoveOn members are gathering at more than 350 call parties nationwide for a huge final push to turn out volunteers for Democrats in key races. And we'll have some fun watching highlights of Jon Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity before hitting the phones.

There's a "Restore Sanity Party" near you in Far Rockaway on Saturday. Our goal is to make 100,000 calls to other MoveOn members asking them to volunteer—but to do that, we need 709 more people at parties.

This election is still very winnable, and this weekend is the most critical of the entire election season. Can you come to the call party on Saturday and help sign up volunteers in key races? Click below to RSVP:

Yes, I'll be there on Saturday

Sorry, I can't make it

Hope you can make it to the party! And forward this email to friends—just one person can make dozens of calls. And in races as close as we'll see on Election Day, every volunteer is crucial.

Thanks for all you do.

–Kat, Carrie, Wes, Duncan, and the rest of the team

P.S. Going to the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear in D.C. this Saturday? Join up with other MoveOn folks! You can meet up with us anytime between 11-4 at our MoveOn meetup spot, where we're giving out free hot chocolate to the crowd. And if you're willing to dress up as a corporate lobbyist, please join our "RepubliCorp" contingent at 10AM and have fun highlighting the corporate front groups trying to buy the election.
