    What were the most common topics for each party (maybe like top 3 for each) as well as the distributions of said topics? Maybe some analysis of the percentage of true vs false calls on each, too?

    Margrave: That’s a harder one to assess & picking the topics would almost certainly be a fairly subjective activity. Which topics are you most interested in?

    Using the number of words in each statement is a very interesting means of exploring the data. Since PolitiFact does not give people’s political parties, how did you decide who was a Republican and who was a Democrat and how big was your sample size of the politicians?
