Today I saw that Romney claimed that the president will lie during the debates. I thought I would look at their records on Politifact.com to see how reliable each candidate has been. Out of the statements analyzed by Politifact, this is the percent of things they have said that have been on the spectrum of true and false, for Obama and Romney.
This isn’t perfect, since Obama has been rated more frequently than Romney has. Still, it’s interesting to see how often each candidate gets rated in each category.
From 2011 US Census:
White persons - 78.1%

Persons reporting two or more races - 2.3%
Persons of Hispanic or Latino Origin - 16.7%
