2010 ACU Ratings

For 38 years, ACU has tallied congressional votes in order to provide a way of seeing if congresscritters' actions conform to their words. The 2010 Ratings of Congress were just released and they've got some surprises.

First, happily, there were twelve senators this past year with ACU ratings of 100 (that's the most conservative). In 2009 there were only ten.

Second, former Utah Senator Bennett, who was primaried for being too centrist has a score of 86 (and had an 84 in 2009). 86 is pretty conservative and it puts him in the company of Senators Chuck Grassley and Thad Cochran. The other Utah senator, Orrin Hatch, also had an 84 in 2009, but his score jumped to 100 in 2010. Clearly, he knows that the primaries are on the way.

Third, Scott Brown has a 74 rating, which is just one point higher than Alaska Senator Lina Mergonski. That's not so good, although you could look at the possibility that there could be a Democrat in their seats; the other senators from Massachusetts and Alaska have scores of 0 and 4, respectively. It also puts Brown and Markuntsky ahead of the Maine sisters, who have identical scores of 64 (in 2009 they were at 48 ).

Thanks to @scottjw for reminding me that the ACU ratings are out.
