You called, CNN listened: What voicemails reveal about the American voter

What 10,000+ voicemails reveal about the American voter

Devastated. Ecstatic. Afraid. Hopeful.

We asked American voters how they are feeling about the outcome of the election and their new president-elect. You left us more than 1,500 voicemails in four days. We listened.

Here's what you said.

In a project based off the successful Love Story initiative, CNN opened up a voicemail box to hear straight from the American people.

We heard from an Obama turned Trump voter, a registered Republican who voted for Clinton, a Trump voter who feels uneasy about their vote and many, many more.

Explore voicemails verified by CNN Digital, and call in yourself to tell us how you feel. The voicemail box will be open through Inauguration 2017 and we're still listening.

ENLIGHTEN US: The Rise and Fall of James Arthur Ray Debuts as CNN Films in December

Film’s World Premiere was at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival

ENLIGHTEN US: The Rise and Fall of James Arthur Ray, directed by Jenny Carchman, will premiere Thursday, Dec. 01 at 9:00pm and 11:00pm Eastern on CNN/U.S., with limited commercial interruption, the network announced today.  ENLIGHTEN US made its world debut at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival in New York City in April and also screened at Telluride Mountainfilm in Colorado and Tallgrass Film Festival in Kansas.

The film explores the story of the motivational speaker’s meteoric rise, fall, and attempt to return to the $11 billion personal growth industry following his conviction for negligent homicide in the deaths of three of Ray’s clients at one of his events.  The film explores the origins of the self-help industry, what followers of the industry are looking for, who is offering answers to those followers, and why some are willing to risk so much for that guidance.

“Jenny Carchman’s thoughtful film brings viewers inside an industry we may recognize, but not fully understand in terms of the multifaceted and complex risks for some devotees.  This film invites reflection and conversation about the broad questions of meaning and fulfillment, but also about how we seek answers to those questions,” said Amy Entelis, executive vice president of talent and content development for CNN Worldwide.
