Rank Your Congressman
The National Journal, an insider statistics-gatherer on Congress, has published its political rankings for 2005 of members of Congress. If you recall, John Kerry got tagged as the “most liberal Senator” during the 2004 election because of his handful of votes during the 2003 session.
Its quite useful to look at, especially if you want to know how supposedly centrist certain politicians are.
Just keep in mind, even if a Senator is listed at 90% conservative, that only means he’s more conservative than 90 other senators. It doesn’t necessary mean he’s conservative 90% of the time, or even that’s even conservative. It’s a relative ranking system.
