The rigors of a competitive Republican nomination race continue to take their toll on the candidates' Truth Quotients (TQ's). Ron Paul and Mitt Romney, in particular, have seen their TQ's drop significant in the past month. Romney dropped below Speaker John Boehner, no mean feat. Sadly, Ron Paul is now in danger of dropping into Congressional leadership TQ territory residing barely above Mitch McConnell. Rick Santorum's and Newt Gingrich's TQ scores didn't change much. Both continue to dwell in the TQ nether regions.
