CPAC Foundation Releases 53rd Edition of the Ratings of Congress

Alexandria, VA – CPAC Foundation has released the 53rd Edition of its annual Ratings of Congress. This report, widely considered the “gold standard” on evaluating political ideology, includes an exhaustive compilation of 76 key roll call votes in the House and 41 key roll call votes in the Senate. This comprehensive report evaluates more than 35,000 individual votes cast by all 535 members of Congress across the full spectrum of policy issues.

“CPAC is excited to present the 53rd edition of CPAC Foundation’s Ratings of Congress. We are proud to carry on the responsibility of holding our representatives in Washington D.C. accountable to the American public,” said CPAC Chairman Matt Schlapp. “Freed from Speaker Nancy Pelosi, conservatives finally received the chance to promote and vote on a wide array of amendments. The incredible diversity of issues touched on by these amendments has helped differentiate establishment Republicanism from the true constitutional conservatives more than ever.”

Lawmakers receiving the Award for Conservative Excellence for Conservative Ratings of 90% or above:

Lawmakers receiving the Award for Conservative Achievement for Conservative Ratings of 80% to 89%:

To produce this year’s scorecard, CPAC Foundation’s Center for Legislative Accountability analyzed every vote taken last session and selected a wide array of issues relating to fiscal matters, taxation, regulation, education, the environment, Second Amendment rights, election security, life, and government integrity. All lawmakers in America at the federal and state levels are scored on a 100-point scale.

Among the lowest scoring Republican Members of the U.S. Senate were Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY-68%), Mitt Romney (R-UT-59%), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK-55%), and Susan Collins (R-ME-54%).

Despite being touted by the media as ‘moderates,’ the highest scoring Democrats in the U.S. Senate received the following paltry scores: Joe Manchin (D-WV-30%), Jon Tester (D-MT-15%), and Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ-12%).

Congress became even more polarized during President Biden’s third year in office. Democrats only voted with the conservative position an average of 2% of the time, demonstrating a level of cohesion not found among Republicans, the likes of whom average an 80%. In total, Congress votes with the conservative position just 41% of the time.

CPAC Foundation is the first and only organization in America to annually publish individual ratings for all the nearly 8,000 federal and state lawmakers in America. CPAC Foundation’s Center for Legislative Accountability is also home to the nation’s most comprehensive conservative policy database, containing over 23,000 detailed bill analyses which span 50 years of Congress and all 50 state legislatures.
