What the graphs should show, to have relevance to politics, is what they PROMISED the people BEFORE they assumed power. Knowing what they did after obtaining power is somewhat less important than understanding what the people THOUGHT they were getting.
So make another, based on what they SAID they would do. Then set it next to the original, add a Z axis, and you can quantify how much of liars they were by connecting their dots.
