Obama's veracity rises against Mittens "veracity" YET AGAIN on Politifact, he's 3.8 times as truthful as Mythical Rm0ney!
How did I come by that number? One word? ARITHMETIC
This time, I wanted to add a second measure, the Simple True-False measure.
That just divides the number of the 3 true-ish categories by the number of the 3 false-ish statements. Needle...
ss to say, this looks very bad for Mendacious Mitt over time:
5 july Obama true-false: 2,54
Romney true-false: 1,44
10 aug Obama true-false: 2,53
Romney true-false: 1,35
10 sept Obama true-false: 2,63
Romney true-false: 1,38
06 oct Obama true-false: 2,55
Romney true-false: 1,32
The Weighted Scoring Method is fairer, cos it doesn't lump everything together, it shows this as of October 6th:
If a True statement gets 3 points, a Mostly True gets 2, Half True gets 1, Mostly False gets -1, False gets -2 and Pants on Fire gets -3 points, then
Obama has a truth-score of 400 points for 429 statements made = 93.2% and
Romney has one of 45 points for 183 statements made = 24.6%
93.2/24.6 = 3.8
