As we enter into a world where truth and fact are becoming increasingly politicized across the political spectrum, one important question to ask is: what determines whether a political appeal seems authentic and believable to voters? To work towards answering this question, this survey asks participants to evaluate the authenticity of claims made by a series of four anonymous candidates, given a brief biography of the candidate and an excerpt from a speech delivered by that candidate. This research will build on previous work to help political scientists better understand the relationship between politics and "the truth."
