According to a new study by the nonpartisan Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University, Republicans are far more likely to lie than Democrats. Shocker.
This is the second study conducted by the group and the results have repeated themselves. In fact, the study shows that during the Obama presidency the truth gap has actually widened.
Using data gathered by Politifact.com the researchers looked at 100 statements involving factual claims made by both parties over the span of Obama’s term in office so far.
The researchers found in the first four months of Obama’s second term, out of 46 of the claims made by Democrats and 54 by Republicans, 32% of the Republican statements were deemed untrue, while only 11% of the Democrats were.
If you are keeping score, that means 1 in 10 statements by the Republican Party are completely dishonest.
Republicans seem to have a lot of talking points attacking the alleged the dishonesty of the Obama administration, but it seems that as the Republicans try and try again to pin a new scandal on the White House, the party has actually widened the credibility gap as their false claims rose to 60%
The facts appear to be in and the it seems the Republican Party will say anything it can to trash the current administration even if doing so means making up everything they say.
