The Colorado General Assembly is one of the nation’s most divided state legislatures, according to the American Conservative Union Foundation’s annual ratings of state legislatures.
The American Conservative Union Foundation conducts an annual, in-depth analysis to rate all 8,000 lawmakers in America, revealing their positions on a wide variety of issues directly affecting our communities and families.
Over the past five years, Colorado has become home to some of the country’s most radical Democrats, and the General Assembly now reflects that political change in the state. Colorado’s General Assembly lurched further leftward in 2020, notching its worst-ever ACU rating at thirty-six percent.
The ACU ratings data conclude that Colorado lawmakers have the most liberal voting records on personal liberty, labor issues, health care, and welfare.

“Leftists of the Colorado General Assembly worsened the Biden Border Crisis by expanding welfare for illegal immigrants and restricting enforcement of federal immigration laws,” said ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp. “Conservative lawmakers tried to protect Colorado communities and block policies that encourage foreign nationals to break the law. We urge the General Assembly to reconsider these harmful policies that are exacerbating the humanitarian crisis at the border.”
ACUF’s Ratings of Congress and Ratings of the States are initiatives of ACUF’s Center for Legislative Accountability (CLA). These ratings are designed to reflect how over 8,000 elected officials across the nation view the role of government while illustrating the differences between chambers of the legislature and revealing lawmakers’ positions on a wide variety of issues that directly affect citizens.
ACU Foundation reviewed each piece of legislation voted on in both chambers of the legislature to produce average scores of each chamber as well as individual scores for each sitting member.
