Roll Call Vitals


New York is 5th on Roll Call's Clout Index, which measures influence in Congress by state.

Rep. John Hall has no appearances on Sunday talk shows.

Sen. Bernard Sanders (I-Vt.) has the most appearances so far this year.

Roll Call and CQ Weekly use ratings assigned by the Rothenberg Political Report, which are defined as follows: SAFE: As of today, the party indicated is all but certain to win the seat. FAVORED: One candidate has a substantial advantage, but an upset is still possible. LEAN: The party indicated has the edge, but the outcome is less certain than for races rated as favored. TILT: The outcome is effectively regarded as a tossup for each of these highly competitive seats, although the party indicated has a slight edge. TOSSUP: Neither party has an edge in these contests.
