The Presidential Grammar Rankings

Well, I don’t know about you, but I relish every opportunity to make fun of a politician.

And this recent infographic from Grammarly gives me a good bit of ammunition to do just that.

Which presidential candidate’s followers have the best grammar? Well, Democratic candidate Lincoln Chafee, of course!

Who? Yeah, I don’t know him either. But his followers made only 3 grammar mistakes per 100 words, according to Grammarly. To conduct the test, they visited the official Facebook pages of all 19 presidential candidates (I believe one or two might have dropped out since the study) and pulled comments from those pages.

So whose followers hadded the worst of the grammars?

No surprise here: Donald Trump.

Trumpites made nearly 13 grammar mistakes per 100 words. Funny, with Trump bloviating so much about the immigration laws and how he’s going to make America more American, or something like that, it seems his followers have a hard time speaking English.

Overall, Democrats are much more well spoken (or well written) than Republicans–for what that’s worth. I blame the liberal media.

Anyway, here’s the full infographic. I’m sure, no matter who you support in the 2016 election, you’ll represent said candidate with exceptionally exceptional grammar.

    Just listen to the candidates themselves. Most of ’em cain’t talk good nohow.

    Possibly something to do with the fact that most of their policy ideas are made up on the spot. ‘Um..yes Bill, well, I think…suppose we look at the fact that, well there’s too many, isn’t there. We all agree on that!’

    Instant Immigration Policy. And you thought politics was hard.

    Something to think about here. How literacy plays into politics. In the age of social media, we can look at how the supporters of a campaign behave and how good their language skills are.

    Politicians will always be politicians, talking trash and little action. Trump is just a wide-mouthed hypocrite with little ideas for America. God bless America.
