Trump Supporters Make Twice as many Grammar Errors as Fiorina Supporters
Donald Trump says he wants to make America great again. He might start with an education plan for his supporters.
Grammarly, an automated-proofreading company, evaluated the grammar of those backing the 2016 Republican presidential candidates. The analysis was based on the comments posted on the official Facebook pages of each contender.
Trump’s supporters, according to Grammarly, had 12.6 grammar errors per hundred words, which put them dead last. Carly Fiorina’s supporters had the fewest grammar mistakes, with 6.3 errors per hundred words.
The second-best score belonged to supporters of Ben Carson (6.6), followed by Lindsey Graham (7.2), George Pataki (7.2), Ted Cruz (7.3), John Kasich (7.7), Jeb Bush (7.9), Mike Huckabee (8.0), Bobby Jindal (8.2), Chris Christie (8.3), Rand Paul (8.4), Marco Rubio (8.8), Scott Walker (10.6), Rick Santorum (11.5) and Rick Perry (12.5).
