Ohio Falls to #12 in National Conservative Rankings

CPAC Releases Lawmaker Scorecard – OH Democrats Voting More Liberal

 

ALEXANDRIA, VA (July 11, 2022)  Ohio’s state legislature has dropped from fourth most conservative in the nation to the number 12 spot according to a new analysis conducted by the Center for Legislative Accountability (CLA), a project of CPAC Foundation and the American Conservative Union Foundation.

 

In CPAC’s analysis of all 7,400 state lawmakers in America, Ohio’s legislature maintained a conservative rating of 68% last year, the same as 2020. However, the voting of lawmakers in eight other legislatures including South Dakota (72%), Arkansas (71%), Idaho (70%), Wyoming (70%), and Iowa (69%) became more conservative, resulting in Ohio dropping nationally. While the state’s 89 Republican lawmakers voted slightly more conservative, the voting of Ohio’s 43 Democratic lawmakers trended much more liberal, preventing an overall gain.

 

A total of 70 Ohio lawmakers earned awards from CPAC for voting with the conservative position at least 80% of the time. The conservative rating is based on lawmaker voting across 186 policy areas ranging from cultural and life issues to tax, fiscal, and regulatory policies.

The ratings have also been incorporated into CPAC’s new Lawmaker Comparison Tool which runs head-to-head comparisons on lawmaker’s strongest and weakest policy areas.

The CLA is the first and only organization to annually publish individual ratings for all 8,000 federal and state lawmakers in America. The CLA is also home to the nation’s most comprehensive conservative policy database containing over 17,500 detailed bill analyses which span 50 years of Congress and all 50 state legislatures.
