Would you call a person who has a personality similar to Lincoln a Lincoln or a Lincolner?
Also, does Lincolner have any political connotations, like someone supporting the Republican party?

As a metaphor, "a Lincoln." Looking for an adjective? Then, "Lincolnesque." "Lincolner," while I can (barely) see the logic, is not found as such in a Google search.
"Lincolner" would be ambiguous as it brings to mind Lincoln in the UK http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lincoln,_England
