U.S. Political Stats is a similar tool allowing data download and visualization for topics spanning all three branches of the United States government. Bringing together valued content from sources like CQ Roll Call and CQ Press, you’ll discover a wealth of information on election returns, congressional floor votes, Supreme Court decisions, plus presidential performance and economic indicators, as well as diverse demographics.
