According to PolitiFact, Republicans Lie Three Times More Often Than Democrats.
The study found Republicans to be less trustworthy than Democrats, based on the number of false claims made during President Obama‘s second term.
The study, by Center for Media and Public Affairs (CMPA) at George Mason University, took into account 100 PolitiFact-checked statements made by Democrats (46 claims) and Republicans (54 claims) in the first four months of Obama’s second term.
“PolitiFact rated 32% of Republican claims as “false” or “pants on fire,” compared to 11% of Democratic claims – a 3 to 1 margin. Conversely, Politifact rated 22% of Democratic claims as “entirely true” compared to 11% of Republican claims – a 2 to 1 margin”.
“A majority of Democratic statements (54%) were rated as mostly or entirely true, compared to only 18% of Republican statements. Conversely, a majority of Republican statements (52%) were rated as mostly or entirely false, compared to only 24% of Democratic statements”.
CMPA President Dr. Robert Lichter stated: “While Republicans see a credibility gap in the Obama administration, PolitiFact rates Republicans as the less credible party.”
The reason Republicans can get away with lying more than Democrats is because Republican constituents has been conditioned to not trust the “Liberal Media”. So they are more likely to not question lies from Republican politicians.
When the news media calls out Republicans lies, average Joe Republican voters feels the “Liberal Media” is picking on the person who’s lying and lets the lies slide.
