The debates results are in: the lies have it
Who told the truth in the presidential debate Wednesday night?
We partnered with Crimson Hexagon to analyze perceptions on Twitter about whether the candidates conveyed facts or untruths during Wednesday night’s presidential debate in Denver.
The pundits largely agree that Romney put forth a good performance Wednesday night and perhaps even won the debate. But based on our analysis of the Twitter conversation having to do with truth telling, Romney was perceived to be telling lies significantly more than Obama was perceived to be putting forth false claims. The analysis is intended to reflect the public perception of truthfulness.
