Is It a Lie or Just Ignorance?

      The latest YouGov poll finds Hillary Clinton of the five remaining POTUS candidates as the least honest in the OPINION of American. However, how reasonable is that opinion or is it just the result of an effective smear campaign?  She has been in the public eye and on the Republican radar longer than any of the other candidates. Also, the Republicans spent $70 Million of public funds in an attempt to destroy Clinton credibility.
      In order to judge the reliability of public opinion, consider statements of these candidates as they compete for POTUS. The analysis by Politifact shows a different story.
      We heard another argument regarding the truthfulness of the candidates. Maybe they weren’t lying when making false statements. Maybe they actually believed what they were saying was truthful. That could certainly be the case. It demonstrates which candidate is more knowledgeable of POTUS matters. The order of expertise is Clinton, Kasich, Sanders, Cruz, and Trump. That is reasonably consistent with the findings of Politifact.
     Here is the whole story
