New Hampshire Rises in National Conservative Rankings

CPAC Releases Scorecard of all 400 NH Lawmakers

 

ALEXANDRIA, VA (August 23, 2022) — The voting of New Hampshire’s state lawmakers is trending more conservative 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, the New Hampshire legislature’s conservative rating increased to 51%, a significant jump over the state’s 39% rating the previous session. New Hampshire has now surpassed Alaska (46%), Virginia (45%), Minnesota (44%) and Delaware (40%) in conservative voting. The conservative rating is calculated through CPAC’s scorecards and is based on lawmaker voting across 186 policy areas ranging from cultural and life issues to tax, fiscal, and regulatory policies.

The state’s jump in rankings is largely attributed to a pickup in Republican seats from 2020 to 2021 and strong leadership by Speaker Sherman Packard which resulted in House Republicans averaging a staggering 92% rating. Additionally, there was some slight improvement in the voting of Senate Democrats.

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.
