They fact checked Grover the LIAR and gave him a Pinocchio

Question: Which of these things had a major influence on your vote today? (Choose no more than three)

percent of Clinton voters Bush Voters Perot Voters

Bush's role in Iran-Contra 29 12 15

Candidates' economic proposals 40 23 45

Clinton's activities during Vietnam 5 24 12

Your opinion of Dan Quayle 19 8 9

Bush's flip-flop on raising taxes 25 1 19

Moreover, when it came to issues, the exit poll found that taxes ranked near the bottom for most voters — except for those voting for Bush.

One can certainly make the case that the broken tax pledge contributed to Bush’s defeat — or at least his political struggles — but it was not the prime factor. Norquist earns a Pinocchio for viewing the results of the election only through a tax-cut lens.
