Truth Quotient History - Candidates

In the past month the overall Truth Quotient (TQ) pattern hasn't changed much. There were no changes of rank. Ron Paul and Mitt Romney continued their gradual but steady 7-month TQ declines. President Obama continues as the sole resident of non-panderer territory (TQ>1.0), Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich still reside in the TQ cellar, and Ron Paul and Mitt Romney are still not much worse than a flip of a coin.

In addition to the five presidential candidates Panderbear includes TQ curves for the Democratic National Committee, the Republican National Committee, and chain e-mails. The first two are included to remind the reader that there really is a difference between veracity metrics for the two parties. The DNC adheres far more closely to the truth than the RNC. Panderbear includes the chain e-mail TQ curve to remind people that these e-mails are pure crap and should never be read, much less forwarded. They are a public nuisance, a hazard to your intelligence, and should be discouraged at every opportunity. Panderbear has trained his mailing list not to forward this garbage to him. It isn't easy, but it can be done.
