Joe Garofoli of The San Francisco Chronicle talked to CEO Justin Myers about the acquittal of President Trump in his impeachment trial and the impact on voters in the paper and for the “It’s All Political” podcast.
When asked about the impact of impeachment, Myers explained:
“Is it a top five issue? Not to the voters we are talking to,” said Justin Myers, CEO of For Our Future, a progressive, labor-funded super PAC that is planning to spend $80 million in seven battleground states in the November presidential election.
“The activist base, of course, is going to talk about impeachment,” Myers told The Chronicle’s “It’s All Political” podcast. “But once you get to the people who don’t vote often, people that aren’t watching the news constantly, that aren’t reading a newspaper on a daily basis, people that are just worried about putting food on the table and taking care of their children and their spouses and their family, they’re not paying attention to what’s happening in D.C.
“For many of them, what you’ll hear is that ‘it doesn’t matter who is in the White House because my life is still going to be the same,’” Myers said.
