2011 VOTE RATINGS

The Republican Freshmen

The 65 Republican House freshmen who captured Democratic-held seats in the 2010 midterm elections have compiled National Journal vote ratings well to the right of their predecessors’—on average, by 30 points. In most cases, a conservative Republican replaced a centrist Democrat. But a handful of districts did an about-face, trading a liberal Democrat for a conservative Republican.
