WHAT STRATEGY FOR THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS?

A Solidarity poll of our members and sympathizers

At its July 27 meeting, the Solidarity National Committee unanimously voted to conduct an internal poll on three distinct positions held by members and debated on a recent members only Zoom call. The results of the poll will be made public in our webzine, with percentage of votes received for each attached to articles arguing for each position.

Unlike a vote on a motion the poll does not establish a singular and official public position of our organization. The poll results will share the weight of varying points of view among us on strategic issues posed by the white supremacist Trump regime and the life and death questions arising from the raging pandemic and economic collapse

Please vote for only one of the three positions below. The options in this poll, as in life, do not lend themselves politically to rank choice voting.

DEADLINE FOR VOTING IS SATURDAY AUGUST 15TH—Fill out the poll below.

Option #1: Support the campaign of Howie Hawkins and Angela Walker as an expression of the principle of independent political action against the two capitalist parties running on a program that is explicitly anticapitalist and ecosocialist.Option #2: Employ the “safe state strategy. Voting for Howie Hawkins and the Green Party where the Democrats are assured of winning and voting for the Democratic Party candidate (Biden) in “swing states” where the outcome is up for grabs.Option #3: Dump Trump, Fight Biden. The exceptional imperative to defeat Trump and his base with a massive vote against his racist, xenophobic ideas, being crystal clear that that this is not an endorsement or support for Biden or the Democrats.
