    Baucus 63.12

    Heitkamp 56.41
    Donnelly 51.28

    Collins 27.55
    Heller 19.44
    Kirk 13.33
    McCain 12.15

    Those 31 points put Manchin closer to Pat Leahy than he is to Collins.

    •  These are lifetime scores (0+ / 0-)

      If you go by the ACU lifetime ratings you get Manchin at 25.33 with Collins at 48.85 and that puts him closer to Barbara Boxer.

        I still believe that Manchin in his heart of hearts is more conservative than these numbers portray, but I have to concede that based on his voting record thus far, he is to the left of a center-right Republican.
