‘A political earthquake’: Will Trump guilty verdicts make an impact in close California races?

SF Chronicle just quoted MVP in their piece on the political consequences of Trump's conviction. "Many left-leaning groups blasted out joyous emails and social media posts celebrating the verdict — and asking for donations. But Movement Voter PAC, which helps anti-Trump donors fund local organizers in battleground states, urged donors to keep focused on raising money and grassroots get-out-the-vote campaigning."

Excerpt

Many left-leaning groups blasted out joyous emails and social media posts celebrating the verdict — and asking for donations. But a leader of Movement Voter PAC, which helps anti-Trump donors fund local organizers in battleground states, urged donors to keep focused on raising money and grassroots get-out-the-vote campaigning.

In 2020, President Joe Biden defeated Trump by only 42,844 votes across Arizona, Georgia and Wisconsin. Polling this month by Cook Political Report shows Biden trailing in six battleground states. 

“The real trial is Democracy v. Trump, and the only verdict that matters is Election Day,” said Zo Tobi, Movement Voter PAC spokesperson. “Our only defense against a second Trump term is a few thousand hard-to-reach voters in a handful of states — and local organizers are our best hope at mobilizing them.”
