Skip to comments.Nate Silver Ranks Walker Most Rightwing Gov in the Country (Liberal blog)
Posted on 07/12/2013 6:39:05 PM PDT by CreviceTool
According to Nate Silver, the New York Time's never-wrong politcal statistician, Scott Walker is the third most conservative governor in the country, based on his score in three categories: Congressional Voting Record, Rightwing Fundraising, and Public Issue Statements. Walker, of course, has no congressional voting record, which makes his average score of 57 slightly below the leaders that have congressional voting records.
However, if just rightwing fundraising appeal and public issue statements are considered, Walker wins the title as the most conservative governor in the country. Walker isn't just conservative, he's off the charts into rightwing luny land. He beats out all the deep south's governors and he's six times more conservative than the nation's most popular Republican governor, Chris Christie.

Walker, bold, brave, conservative, religious, moral.
Let’s hear it for Walker!
wish he’d do more, he’s been real quiet since winning the recall. he has a mandate, keep going!
He signed those Pro-Life bills, the Wisconsin legislature had about 3 of them under consideration at the same time. He’s already a bit on the reserved side.
“Walker isn’t just conservative, he’s off the charts into rightwing luny land.”
Awesome. I always liked my politicians to be as far right as they can be.
Proud to be a cheesehead. The most important thing Walker did this year was refuse Medicaid expansion and not set up a Marxist state exchange. If all governors did this 0-care would be dead.
Silver is to sanity as Anthony Weiner is to manliness.
Or, Silver is to sanity as Spitzer is to “respect for women”.
In other words, Nathan Silver is a total schmuck, but then, again, in New York Democratic politics, this is NORMAL.
Where I come from, this type of mental illness is what Marty Feldman, in “Young Frankenstein”, said was the name of a man’s brain, ‘A. B. NORMAL”
Mike Pence of Indiana is 2nd most conservative.
Boy ain’t been to Mississippi.
right wing luney land. Would that be right next to the people who planned to throw urine and feces on peaceful pro-life protesters, hmmm?
If only we had 49 more like him.
And we may need 50 more if North Colorado becomes a state.
