Here is an interesting article in Politifact about candidates missing votes while campaigning.


Candidate with the smallest number of votes missed: Bernie Sanders!

Lindsay Graham and Ted Cruz have also missed a large percentage, though still fewer than Rubio.

Which is funny, because Rubio has missed less votes than Obama did or Clinton did in their first Presidential run. He's also missed less than Biden did.


Which is funny, or it would be if it wasn't pathetic, that the so called "conservatives" have to lie so much. When looking at a politicians WHOLE CAREER the numbers change to show that Rubio has a far worse absentee rate than anyone else in Congress.


When so called "conservatives" say anything, always check the facts. You'll see they're lying most of the time.

From the above link; "The analysis comes from Punditfact, a partnership between the Tampa Bay Times and Politifact.com, which maintains scorecards on the accuracy of major TV news networks. As of January, about 60 percent of facts reported by Fox News were false."


Why do they have to lie if they have a viable platform?

There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.   Isaac Asimov
