I live in California, I see all the fantastic work you are doing to defeat Trump and his foul minions across the nation. .Except One... I live in Tulare County , the home of (in my opinion) the biggest betrayer of his oath in Washington ...Devon Numes. He sat on the house judicial committee, and was in full knowledge of the Ukraine Affair , sat there and did NOTHING. He is running for re-election, we have to defeat this bozo .Help us Obi-Wan Wilson ,you are are last hope. .Al Roberts.

This woman talking about character when she voted for Trump is just unbelievable. This episode was beyond disturbing to me. I tried to listen to the whole thing. I couldn't do it.

Next time you want to link all low information voters into one party (and define them as people of color and young people) why don’t you mention all the Fox News viewers too. Low information voters are not a Democratic Party problem, they are an American problem. Describing only Democrats, and only certain Democrats that way is more revealing of your biases than informative.

The best, most cheering podcast this Brit has heard on the election so far. The mention of the work in Harris County to combat GOP electoral malfeasance led me to read about Chris Hollins - a truly inspirational story of what one good person can achieve when all seems hopeless. The fluency and knowledge of the guests on the show was astonishing.

Please do not forget the things Carly Fiorina said in 2015/2016 and she was Ted CruzVP. I 100% support the Lincoln Project but I cannot listen to her rewrite history!

Ms. Fiorina, if you're going to discuss respect & integrity in politics, you should have enough respect & integrity to call it by its rightful name - the Democratic Party.

To sum up.... This woman disliked Clinton so much that she was willing to gamble on Trump, she now realises that her beloved country is so damaged by him that she is willing to do almost anything to get rid of him, except stop making excuses for her own poor judgement and stupidity.

Great show. I never thought TX would be a swing state, either. Do you think "dub-yuh" will even vote for Biden?

Great episode! These podcasts give me hope when I start feeling anxious about the state of the race. they're a reminder that the team effort to save this country is about being Americans not about our politics. We're in this together and have more in common that we have differences.

As a long time conservative, who has worked for both democrat and republican State and local administrations, I am so very grateful for the creation of this organization. Hearing a group of like-minded policy "wonks" and political experts offer intelligent and non- fearmongering insight allows me to have some hope for the future of the US. Please let us know how we can help to increase the spread of your message. Keep up the good work!

Thanks for all of your time and effort to make a difference in this country. Have found you via this video clip https://lincolnproject.us/video/distracted/ long time ago it seams. https://lincolnproject.us/news/distracted/ Keep up the good work. (^^,) The history of the Electoral College. As a country, we've been arguing about it for nearly 200 years. Simplest argument against: 270 votes should not speak for the entire country. 1 person = 1 vote, remember? And 5 times in our country's history have the peoples voice not been heard. When can the will of the people be accepted.?. When can we move forward and grow, with old laws that brakes the progress.?. The Electoral College is an arcane out-dated system that allows the will of the people to go subverted when picking the President of the United States. This means that the true will of the people goes unheard. This system is also the reason that a Third Party candidate will never have a legitimate chance to win the seat of the Presidency. https://sign.moveon.org/petitions/abolish-the-electoral-6
