Hover over each Member of Congress (MOC) dot to see if they exceed or fall below their district’s expectations. If their dot is above their expected line, it means they’re voting more progressive than their colleagues in similar districts; if they are below the line, it means the opposite.
Beyond being above or below their expected lines, MOC dots at the top of the chart are the most progressive; at the bottom of the chart are the least progressive. And dots to the far left are extremely conservative districts, whereas dots to the far right are extremely progressive districts.
Easiest to think of in four quadrants:
This automatically updating chart is also proof that — despite a few outliers — Republican members of congress do not moderate regardless of their district lean.
