In easy-to-understand terms, how would this ruling affect the different States? Supreme Court to Hear Case on State Legislatures’ Power Over Elections

From what I see, in North Carolina the Senate and House are both a Republican majority, so if the Supreme Court ruling gives state legislatures independent power, that means that they can manipulate district boundaries any way they see fit to win elections. In other states, the party in power might never lose elections again because they can just manipulate their state's boundaries to their benefit.

Is it this straightforward or is it more complicated?

Most importantly, would this affect the Presidential Elections? Assuming the political scenario in 2024 is similar to 2020, would Trump (or any other GOP candidate) win at the swing states that they lost in 2020?
