One Last Job .../ 18-29 year olds 2-1 for Kerry

- From: Michael Moore Subject: One Last Job for Us to Do Today, Election Day, to Honor a Soldier from Flint November 2, 2004 -- Election Day Friends, In addition to your local MoveOn/ACT/Dem Party HQ still needing help at this hour, to make calls and go door to door (call them now or just leave the house and go down to their office and volunteer!), each of us can do something at this very moment that could tip the election -- and we don't even have to leave our chairs. Pull out your cell phone as you are reading this and go to your cell address book on your phone. Now just go down the list of your family and friends, one by one, hit the green "OK/Send" button and call each of them up. Ask them if they've already voted and, if not, gently remind them that you need them to vote today. It's just a quick call to say "hi" and "PLEASE get to the polls as soon as possible." Ask them if they need any help with a ride or watching the kids or whatever. Offer to take them yourselves. Take them to lunch or dinner afterward. If they don’t know where to go to vote, they (or you) can find out by calling 1-866-OUR-VOTE or going to We are hours away from what we hope will be the good news about President-elect Kerry. But it won't happen unless each of us puts everything we can into every minute we have left. I'm in Tallahassee this morning, and Cleveland this afternoon. I won't stop ‘till the last polls have closed. I promised Lila Lipscomb, the mother from Flint who lost her son in Iraq, that I would do whatever I could to honor her son's last wish in his last letter home to her from the battlefield in Iraq: "What in the world is wrong with George 'TRYING TO BE LIKE HIS DAD' Bush? He got us out here for nothing whatsoever. I am so furious right now mama. I really hope they do not-elect that fool honestly." Please join me, wherever you are in this great country, and make Sgt. Michael Pedersen's last request to us, the American people, become a reality. We owe it to him and to the rest of the world. Yours, Michael Moore P.S. To the millions of 18 to 29-year-olds I've met or seen on this tour, I truly believe YOU are the ones who are going to make the difference today. You are going to vote in record numbers and you are going to be the ones responsible for removing George W. Bush from the White House. You were taken for granted by the pollsters and the pundits for the past year and now you are about to show them just what kind of power the 40 million of you hold in your hands. Sweet! See ya at the victory party! Cf: Pollster John Zogby: "Razor thin margin here, if there is one at all. The President still does not get above 48%. The real news here is that 18-29 year olds favor Kerry 64% to 35%, with 1% for Nader €”and 0% undecided. When I see a low undecided number it means that group is going to vote. I am factoring this group to be 12% of the total vote -- but it could be higher. Each point it goes higher translates into two-thirds of a percent for Kerry -- if these numbers hold up." Zogby International conducted interviews of 1208 likely voters chosen at random nationwide. All calls were made from Zogby International headquarters in Utica, N.Y., from October 29 through October 31, 2004. The margin of error is +/- 2.9 percentage points. Slight weights were added to region, party, age, race, religion, gender, to more accurately reflect the voting population. Margins of error are higher in sub-groups. In 1996, John Zogby came within one-tenth of 1 percent of the presidential result, and was one of the first pollsters to accurately foresee Vice President Al Gore'€™s popular-vote victory in 2000 Oil traders tip Kerry win, driving prices lower Speculation that Senator John Kerry will win the United States presidential election has helped oil prices to fall sharply, as analysts said he could ease the geopolitical friction that helped fuel this year's record-breaking rally.
