List Rules Vote for the politicians currently in office who you actually believe are honest, truthful, and deserving of the public trust.

The most trusted politicians in American history are legendary statesmen and women with reputations for never telling lies, fighting for the downtrodden, backing up their words with actions, always calling their moms, and generally being good people. Others - not so much. Some politicians truly have terrible reputations and most of the public wouldn't trust them as far as they could throw them. Yet, they keep getting elected.

With the 2016 presidential election approaching, and seemingly dozens of people running, let's see how today's most prominent politicians (and people pretending to be politicians, not that we're looking at you, Mr. Trump) stack up. Some people on this list surely are trustworthy and truthful. Others are probably just looking to cash in on book deals and get talk shows. Vote up the presidential candidate, senator, governor or mayor you find to be the most truthful and deserving of your trust!
