PolitiFact just dropped a bomb on Andrew Yang, issuing a “Pants On Fire” ruling over this claim that “I’m one of only two candidates in the field that 10% or more of Donald Trump voters say they would support in the general” election:

But even worse from the Dem who is selling “Math” swag is that his math is what’s comically bad. From PolitiFact:
Yang said, “I’m one of only two candidates in the field that 10% or more of Donald Trump voters say they would support in the general” election.
This claim comes from one poll in July that sampled 41 Trump voters who said they planned to vote in a Democratic primary or caucus. The question has been asked by the same pollster weekly since July, and those results have never been replicated.
Even if they had, the margin of error for a sample size that small is about 15 percentage points, rendering them essentially meaningless.
The math isn’t hard on this one. We rate Yang’s claim Pants on Fire.
Let’s seem his add or subtract his way out of this one:

In reality, he’s no different than any other politician:
Wow. If Yang misuses DATA he is a candidate with expertise in absolutely nothing. That’s the simple math of it
