I've just seen the key to ending Trump forever

Trump needs to be buried in a historic landslide. You see, if Trump loses by only a small margin in the Electoral College, and Mitch McConnell keeps control of the Senate, Republicans will decide Trump's losing was just bad luck. They'll blame the coronavirus, the economy, and the liberal media—and so they'll continue with Trump's formula of racism and division.

Dear fellow MoveOn member,

Donald Trump is down in the polls, and that's good news. But listen, -: There are still four months until the election. And it's not enough for Trump to just lose ...

Trump needs to be buried in a historic landslide.

You see, if Trump loses by only a small margin in the Electoral College, and Mitch McConnell keeps control of the Senate, Republicans will decide Trump's losing was just bad luck. They'll blame the coronavirus, the economy, and the liberal media—and so they'll continue with Trump's formula of racism and division. There's already an entire generation of Trump wannabes waiting in the wings, copycats who are already being talked about as 2024 presidential candidates: Tom Cotton, Josh Hawley, and even Donald Trump Jr.

To save America from this racist, authoritarian nightmare, we need to beat Trump by such an enormous margin that his entire toxic approach to politics is discredited forever.

My friends at MoveOn are some of the most effective grassroots organizers in the country, and this year, they’re using a super-effective strategy called "vote tripling," which has proven to be five times more effective at getting out the vote than traditional strategies.

This is how we can drive up the margin and guarantee a humiliating defeat for Trump. But MoveOn needs to raise enough money to run its "Vote Tripling" program in all of the top 10 presidential battleground states AND in key Senate battleground states, including Colorado and Maine, from now until Election Day. Will you chip in $5 a month to help make that possible?

Yes, I'll chip in monthly.

No, I'm sorry, I can't make a monthly donation.

We all understand that our country can't afford four more years—or even four more minutes—of Trump. That's obvious to anyone paying even the slightest bit of attention.

But even if Trump loses, our country can't afford for one of the two major parties to continue tearing the country apart with Trump's formula of racist division and authoritarianism. So to defeat both Trump and Trumpism, we need to sweep presidential battleground states from Pennsylvania to Florida—and even win states like Arizona, which were once ruby-red.

We also need to defeat the Senate Republicans who have enabled Trump, including Susan Collins, Martha McSally, Cory Gardner, and, of course, McConnell.

That's where MoveOn's Vote Tripling program comes in. Here's how it works:

We know from years of academic research that the best way to make sure people vote is through social accountability. People who don't vote tend to feel embarrassed about it. But they also assume that no one will ever know whether they voted or not, so who cares?

But in fact, it's publicly available information whether you voted or not—not who you voted for, but whether you voted at all. And if people know that their friends, family, and neighbors are paying attention, they're much, much more likely to vote. So MoveOn is mobilizing its millions of members to encourage their family, friends, and neighbors to vote—and to remind them that if you don't vote, people will know.

This is how we can drive up the margin and make sure that no Republican even thinks of following in Trump's vile footsteps.

This election is a battle for the soul of America, and we need to not just beat Trump but also defeat Trumpism. I've seen MoveOn tip elections time after time over the last 20 years. And I know that MoveOn's Vote Tripling plan will work, but only if it's fully funded.

Will you donate $5 a month to help defeat Trump, win back the Senate, and bury Trumpism in the ash heap of history?

Yes, I'll chip in monthly.

No, I'm sorry, I can't make a monthly donation.

Thank you so much, my friends, for all you do.
