Pick Your President Poll (California, Colorado, Michigan, Ohio, Washington, & Wisconson)

For California folks:
Who will you vote for?

It's decision time for millions of progressive Californians just like you. Which candidate deserves your vote to become the next President of the United States?

Iowa and New Hampshire have had their say -- and the results have shocked the pundits. Now, for the first time in decades, the California primary matters. With the White House hanging in the balance, the decision is yours.

You can vote right now for your favorite candidate in a unique online poll of progressives in California and across the country.

As you vote at "Pick Your President," five of our progressive non-partisan partner organizations will be surveying their supporters as well in Colorado, Michigan, Ohio, Washington and Wisconsin (polling both Democratic and Republican candidates).

If you support a specific candidate -- and you know many people who agree with you -- it's time to rally them to the cause. Today.

By spreading the word about this unique online poll of progressives in California and across the country, you can help your favorite candidate build momentum immediately. No matter which candidate you are backing, their campaigns are counting on you.

This year, Californians may well decide who gets the nomination on both sides of the aisle.

With over 15 million people registered to vote, California has more voters than the "January states" -- Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina -- combined. In addition, nearly 20% of the delegates needed for the Democratic nomination will come from the Golden State.

That's why your vote matters more now than at any time in the last twenty years. And that's why the Courage Campaign is participating in a unique online poll, conducted with our sister organizations in five other states, to see who you think should win the White House.

On January 18, the day before the Nevada Caucuses, the Courage Campaign will announce the winner of this special poll of California progressives.

Until then, candidate rankings will be updated frequently, so you'll be able to track your candidate's progress by refreshing the "Results" page often.

Thank you for making 2008 the beginning of a new era for progressive politics in California and the world.

Chair, Courage Campaign

P.S. California's primary actually started on Monday, when millions of registered voters were mailed ballots by Secretary of State Debra Bowen. Today, votes are being cast. By February 5, it's quite possible that more than 50% of the California electorate will already have voted by mail.
