After a New York Times analysis found Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton voted in synch 93 percent of the time during their two overlapping Senate years, Sanders’ supporters have been pushing back on the notion that the two leading Democratic presidential candidates are largely the same. Vox Populi contributor John Samuel Tieman found this chart which is circulating on Twitter, Facebook and Reddit that attempts to differentiate Sanders and Clinton by highlighting differences in their voting records.

After extensive research, Punditfact found that the chart’s points are essentially correct, though some either fail to capture Clinton’s “flip-flops” over the years or over-simplified her stance on issues where her public comments are thin.  To read their complete analysis, click here.
