FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. – Connecticut U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal topped the list of the “Most Liberal Senators” in 2012, according to the National Journal.
The magazine ranked each member of Congress based on votes from 2012 that split on ideological lines. The editors assigned a “percentile score” to each member of the House and the Senate which identified how often each member took a liberal or conservative position.
Blumenthal and Sen. Tom Udall of New Mexico were tied at No. 1, with a percentile score of 90.1. That means Blumenthal and Udall took what the National Review identified as the liberal position on 90 percent of votes.
Former Connecticut U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman did not finish in the magazine’s top 15. None of Connecticut’s five members of the House of Representatives appeared on the top 25 for that body either. See more of the rankings at the National Journal’s website.
