Truth Quotient History - Candidates

Given the current decisive state of the Republican nomination race it will soon be of only historical interest for political junkies what the Truth Quotient histories of the other candidates are.

The tripartite distribution of the Truth Quotient (TQ) ratings continue with President Obama well in the lead in positive TQ territory, the two perennial TQ cellar dwellers, Rich Santorum and Newt Gingrich at the bottom, and Ron Paul and Mitt Romney somewhere in congressional-like mid-panderer TQ level.

Panderbear notes two persistent trends in the TQ history plot. President Obama's TQ has barely budged remaining in solid truth-telling territory and Mitt Romney has continued a long glide path from greater to less than unity, the break even point. Panderbear doesn't expect those trends to be broken anytime soon.
