The American Conservative Union in its yearly ratings scored 122 congressional Democrats as “radical left,” the Daily Caller reports.

Even more surprising was Sen. Susan Collins of Maine’s voting record – she was the lowest-rated Republican senator who only voted with the conservative agenda 23 percent of the time.

“For years Republicans assumed that Sen. Susan Collins of Maine was more conservative than her voting record shows. That clearly was a polite and inaccurate analysis,” ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp told The Daily Caller.

“She barely gets 1 out of 4 votes right. She’s the least reliable Senate Republican by more than 20 points and she scores closer to her liberal colleague Sen. Angus King than she does to the 2nd most egregious Republican. She even votes worse than Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin. We find ourselves uncertain if Manchin deserves some credit or if Sen. Collins simply has moved so far Left she is beginning to make Democrats look good.”

The ACU every year scores the conservativeness of lawmakers. The group of Democrats were deemed “radical left” because they voted with the conservative agenda less than 10 percent of the time.
