How Representatives voted with the Democratic majority


Representatives voted with the Democratic majority on average 56% during Jan. 1, 2016 - Sep. 22, 2016 over all 555 votes in the House.

Within this group of 441 who served sometime in the period, the lowest agreement was 16%, while the highest agreement was 100%. Among them 7 were excluded from calculation for insufficient voting history.

This view ranks all legislators in the group by how often they agree with the Democratic majority in the selected time period. Each legislator is shown as a bar (blue for Democrat and red for Republican). For a large group, only a selected subset of the bars are labeled, but you can always mouse-over or double-click a bar for details.

This view shows how legislators vote with Democratic majority over time within the selected period. The percent agreement at a particular time is calculated using a window of 90 days centered at that time. Each legislator is shown as a timeline (blue for Democrat and red for Republican). For a large group, only a selected subset of the timelines are shown, along with a density plot of the time-varying percent agreement distribution (blue for Democrat, red for Republican, and darker shades means higher density). You can always mouse-over or double-click a timeline for details.
