Trump score update for AZ MoCs

MoCs refers to Members of Congress. Here are the first results for Trump scores for our two AZ Senators and the CD2 Representative.

The 538 computational journalist, Aaron Bycoffe, has published the first report on his Trump Scores in Tracking Congress In The Age Of Trump. An updating tally of how often every member of the House and the Senate votes with or against the president.

Senators Flake and McCain are predicted to vote with Trump 83.4% of the time based on Trump’s margin in Arizona. Both voted with Trump 100% of the time.

Rep. Martha McSally, representing a district that leans less Republican is predicted to vote with Trump 52% of the time. She voted with Trump 100%. The discrepancy puts her at #12 out of all the Republicans in the House. She’s out of step with her constituents, but I’ll bet you are thinking “I told you so.”

Here’s the link to Bycoffe’s explanation of his scores, How this works.
