Vermont legislature 5th most liberal in nation, CPAC says

Tied with New York for 5th lowest conservative rating

By Meg Hansen, Ethan Allen Institute

The voting of Vermont’s state lawmakers has placed the legislature as the 5th most liberal in America according to a new 50 state 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 Vermont legislature earned a conservative rating of 26%, tying New York and Maryland, and trailing only Hawaii (23%), Rhode Island (20%), and Massachusetts (15%) as most liberal in America.

Only 3 Vermont Republican lawmakers earned CPAC’s highest Award for Conservative Excellence (90% and above conservative ratings), and 23 earned the Award for Conservative Achievement (80-89% conservative ratings). An astounding 95 lawmakers earned CPAC’s “Coalition of the Radical Left” award for conservative ratings of 10% or below. 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.

  1. When I meet people and tell them where I live they say, “I’m sorry to hear that.” But when I tell them I’m a Republican……

  2. Oh God…..these losers will now try to reach their “pinnacle” of success & make it to numero uno. With abortion set to be permitted at any stage of pregnancy & legalized prostitution on the horizon as it’s so empowering for women (whoever they are at this point) & LGBTQLMNOPWXYZ movement…..move over MA & California!

  3. They have this headline wrong. Vermont is not a “liberal” state but, rather, a “Progressive” State. In its classic sense, Liberalism is a political philosophy or worldview founded on the ideas of liberty and equality. Progressives are the people who wish to redistribute wealth (the opposite of property rights), support the destruction of religion (opposite of freedom of religion), support massive regulation (instead of free trade), whey wish to cancel or silence people and demand political correctness (suppression of free speech and press). They wish suppress voter id and other means to ensure free and fair elections. Sound familiar in Vermont? These are not Democrats or Liberals. Frankly, these are Cultural Marxists who are the modern day Progressives. These are the people who rule Vermont.

    • Here here…..if more people were accurate with their descriptions like you are we’d have a chance. Not many will admit to being a marxist, what most truly are. Then we could define our issues better.

      It’s america against the globalist/marxist/uniparty/corportists….all the same soup, just slightly different flavors and overtones of true fascists….

      It makes a big difference, the Uniparty loves, loves the playing field in Vermont, it’s just what they want the entire country to look like.

  4. Easy state to sneak all their god-awful, slimy, bs into. Total infiltration! Vermonters have no idea what’s about to happen. This is NOT your ole Democratic Party!
