Laura Ingraham Says The Lincoln Project Failed 'Spectacularly,' Didn't Move a Single Vote

Fox News' Laura Ingraham has derided The Lincoln Project's efforts against the president's re-election bid, suggesting: "They didn't move a single vote away from Donald Trump."

The anti-Trump group has long criticized the president with the goal of "defeating Trump and Trumpism at the ballot box."

Founded by a group largely made up of Republican strategists, it has looked to try and shift GOP-leaning voters to back Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden this time out.

"No group I think failed as spectacularly as the grifters at the The Lincoln Project," Ingraham said.

"They're all supposedly former republicans, all of them hacks, funded by wealthy liberals.

"They didn't move a single vote away from Donald Trump."

She referred to the number of votes Trump got in 2016 and compared to current counts in 2020.

"Trump garnered 63 million votes in 2016 and already close to 68 million despite enduring years of attacks, so 68 million votes in 2020," she said.

The New York Times reported Trump received at least 68 million votes, five million more than in 2016, and an estimated 48 percent of the popular vote.

According to The New York Times' exit polls, Trump's share of votes among those identifying as Republicans also increased from 2016.

In 2016, its exit poll showed 90 percent of Republicans for Trump. This year, it showed 93 percent of Republican-identifying voters went for him. This comes in spite of Republican-led campaigns against him as well as high profile GOP-linked figures speaking out and supporting Biden.

The Lincoln Project endorsed Biden in April, stating at the time: "As America contends with unprecedented loss, we need a leader who can steady the ship, heal our common wounds, and lead us into our next national chapter. Joe Biden has the humanity, empathy and steadiness we need in a leader."

It has since backed him in ads while strongly opposing the president and his allies, taking a particular focus on Trump's handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Trump has branded those in the group "losers" after facing attacks from them.

With results still being counted, the group has insisted it is confident Biden will be elected president once all ballots are tabulated.

"Be patient. All the votes will be counted," the group said in a post to Twitter on Wednesday.

"Joe Biden is going to be the 46th President of the United States."

After president Trump's premature calls of victory, the group criticized his remarks and insisted he "doesn't decide who wins elections, the American people do."

Newsweek has contacted The Lincoln Project for comment.
