While that is true, if we compare all his facts within the true/false areas, we see that 74% of his statements are withing the realm of true. Purposefully misleading post title is misleading.

I guess you're a "glass half-full" kind of person to consider half-true statements as "true." Either that, or an irrational cheerleader for Mr. Sanders, who 'speaks half-truths to power.'

You should really read the analysis attached to all of those different points. And yes, given that they categorize similarly for the "lies" sections, I counted them. Lets put it down to mostly true and true only, though. That still leaves him at 52%, well ahead of most every other person listed on that sight, or at least among the candidates since I honestly didn't look through every single person they list. Just too many people.

Rand Paul, for example, ranks in at 43% given the same criteria

Scott Walker is at 33%

Jeb Bush at 50%

and Donald Trump at a whopping 7%

And that's counting the "True" and "Mostly True" statements alone. Seems like Bernie is kicking ass to me, or do you perhaps have different numbers than the rest of us?
