The information you're looking for is available on govtrack.us, but you need to know what to search for. In this context, "passing" a bill (without any qualifiers) generally means introducing it and having it become law. It may or may not include bills which were merely co-sponsored, but in my experience, when they do, it's explicitly called out. Given ...

538 actually has whole analysis devoted to this, showing both how often a member votes in line with Trump's position and comparing that to Trump's vote share in their district. According to their analysis, Kamala Harris votes in line with Trump's position 16.2% of the time, which is slightly higher than Bernie Sanders 14.2%. In the Senate, Kristin ...

From the Advanced Search for Legislation page, it appears that Representative Waters has sponsored 5 bills since 1973 that have been enacted. Three of them were enacted and signed into law and the other two were incorporated into other legislation and subsequently passed. I would assume, to be charitable, that the two bills that "didn't count" were ...

There is not a single clearinghouse for election results. By law, election returns are gathered by county, then reported to state levels. That is as far as it needs to go, because there is not a "national" election. The closest thing the US has to "national election" is for President/Vice-President. But voters, based on differing state ...

Expanding on divibisan's identification of the source of the data which motivated this question, the percentages in the original post are correct when limited to votes in the 116th Congress. Of the 39 measures that FiveThirtyEight lists, Sanders has voted on 22, and voted for Trump's position three times, giving him a score of 13.6%. Harris has voted on 27, ...

As you mentioned, there are plenty of data sources to look at someone's voting record, but not much for comparing two. There is an (inactive) GitHub repo which alleges to do exactly what you want. The project is called Compare-Congress and it's by user sunlightlabs. Ordinarily I wouldn't recommend something like this, but I see that you are active on Stack ...

You would want to look at precinct votes for County X. In the United States, Precincts are the smallest possible political division, and are below county level government. They are important in that precincts will encompass a specific area or population size that typically will repersent an average of 1,100 voters (with the largest Precincts in Washington ...

Check out https://usarep.org You can compare votes of Senators and House Members apples to apples. Currently, they are highlighting this for Presidential Primary candidates who are also Senators or Congress People. What I like about this site is they have details of amendments voted on. While the Senate website gives a link to their amendments adjacent ...

In order to perform your own aggregates and analysis in real time just like the news networks you will need access to data during the period following the closing of the polls while ballots are being counted and verified. Because the process of counting and verification is ongoing, there is no official data source. The news organisations and others that are (...

In another answer CDJB linked to the FEC's report (PDF), which contains detailed information on elections for federal offices: President, Senate, and House. However, it was released in December 2017, and isn't exactly ready to be put into analysis, but it is a partial answer to your question.

A good way of comparing this is by comparing voting records. partijgedrag.nl has a comparison matrix in which you select one party and compare similarity with other parties on a large number of categories. When selecting the Socialist Party, you immediately see which party is the most similar overall. As you may have guessed, it is the PvdD. Since the ...
