  •  The median number is 218 (0+ / 0-)

    With 435 points, the median number will be exactly 218.   Think about it:  if you had 5 points, the median would be point number 3, not 2.5.

    What would be helpful in your analysis is to see how many members of each party there are in congress.  If there is a Democratic congress, she will obviously be further to the right.  How far to the right of the left-most Republican is she in each congress?

        if she'd stayed is 20th most moderate.

        LaTourette, Dold, Tim Johnson, and Platts were all more moderate than her, and I can't think of a single freshman Republican who will be to her left.
