1. I think it goes back to Carter/Reagan at least

Carter knew the issues and the history inside and out, and he was a fountain of accurate information in those debates. Looking at the facts, he won hands-down.

But everyone remembers "there you go again", and that little chuckle and friendly shake of the head. Even though reagan was a serial liar, who didn't know or care what the facts were, people found him more likeable.
