Candidate response table

Responses by candidate and issue

Notes on the table:

  • Candidates are sorted by election and then alphabetically within party; each candidate is hyperlinked to his/her questionnaire, and each issue is hyperlinked to its question in the questionnaire.
  • If the candidate added a comment to his/her “Yes/No” response, the table provides a hyperlink — generally visible as a blue underscored “Yes” or “No“– to that question.
  • In cases where the candidate commented but did not answer “Yes” or “No”, the table lists a “c” (for ‘comment, but no Yes/No answer’) with a hyperlink.
  • Candidate percentages use 13 — the number of questions — as the denominator, regardless of whether all 13 questions were answered “Yes” or “No.”  By contrast, issue percentages exclude candidates who did not supply a definite “Yes” or “No” answer.
  • Percentages are a systematic but obviously simple and imperfect way to evaluate candidates and issues.  The quality of a candidate’s comments may tell you more about his/her thinking than a numeric score will.
