Tripartisan Breakdown of the AFP-NH 2017 Scorecard

July 21, 2017

Some quick thoughts on the just released AFP-NH 2017 Scorecard

NH House:
12 bills dealing with subjects such as reducing the cost of health insurance and improving the quality of education

Tripartisan breakdown
100% Scores
Republicans – 49 (Not voting wasn’t counted against the legislators so even though Speaker Jasper only voted once, he had a 100% score as he voted to increase worker freedom)
Libertarians – 2
Democrat – 0

Average Score
Republican – Probably around what the Libertarians got
Libertarian – 77%
Democrat – Very low

Lowest Scores
Republicans – Skylar Boutin (perhaps the college student registered with the wrong party by mistake?) and Mariellen J. MacKay (partly due to her voting like an anti-freedom Democrat before she switched to the Republican Party) received 33%
Libertarian – Joseph Stallcop received 30% (partly due to him voting like an anti-freedom Democrat before he switched to the Libertarian Party)
Democrats – Travis Bennett, Michael D. Cahill, Edith M. DesMarais, Paul J. Henle, and David Woolpert received 0%

Note: 5 Democrats did as well as or better than the lowest scoring Republicans and Libertarian.

NH Senate:
11 bills dealing with subjects such as protecting free speech and improving the quality of education

Bipartisan breakdown
100% Scores
Republicans – 2 (John Reagan and Andy Sanborn)
Democrat – 0

Average Score
Republican – 88%
Democrat – 0%

Lowest Scores
Republicans – Sharon M. Carson and Daniel E. Innis received 73%
Democrats – All 9 received 0%

Note: House politicians from all three parties were to be able to have independent thoughts. Did Senate Democrats even have an independent thought among them?

Super Serious Note: This blog post is not an official or even an unofficial AFP-NH post. Go to the actual AFP-NH website to see the full New Hampshire Legislative Score Card (2017).
