The Institute for Legislative Analysis (ILA) just released the voting trends on Florida U.S Congressional members.

Their latest analysis found that “culture war” issues have replaced “fiscal discipline” within the GOP. 

The breakdown shows GOP lawmakers voted for the “conservative position” on cultural and social issues 97% of the time but for the limited government position on tax and fiscal issues just 51% of the time.

ILA says more than half of Republicans (146 of 275) voted for the progressive position on fiscal issues more often than the conservative. But on cultural issues (abortion, LGBTQ and gender ideology, and race) all but 23 Republicans voted at least 90% of the time for the conservative position.

The Republican Party is in a new movement grounded on populism and focused on winning the culture wars,” said Ryan McGowan, CEO of the Institute for Legislative Analysis.

McGowen also said significant ideological shifts within major conservative institutions gravitate Republican lawmakers to this new policy agenda.

“These votes reveal a major shift in Republican party ideology,’ said the group.

Across all policy issues, Republicans voted with the limited government position 77.05% of the time compared to Democrats voting with the progressive position 92.52% of the time.

Among Florida Republicans here are the most conservative in the U.S. House.

  • Rep. Greg Steube 98%
