The lobbying group that put President Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney to a lie detector test during Wednesday night’s debate announced Thursday that their results were inconclusive.
“The lie detector voice analysis tests of the presidential debate were found to be inconclusive by Voice Analysis Technology,” Americans for Limited Government said in a message on their website. “The technology can detect a deception if the person knows they are deceiving, but if they believe what they are saying is true, even if it is not, it is not picked up.”
The group said it was reviewing the reports further.
On Wednesday, Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson said the technology would be a “breakthrough for the American people.”
“For the first time, within a few hours of a political debate, the American people will know if the candidates are telling the truth, and better be able to judge what promises are real, and which ones are nothing more than political pandering,” Wilson said.”
