The Madison Performance Index (MPI) came into being during an internal team discussion years ago.
“How do we REALLY know if a Member of Congress is performing? How do we tie them to their legislative scorecards in a way that makes sense to the voters in their districts?”
Thus the MPI was born. It’s more science than art and that is exactly the goal for the MPI-to objectively put before the voters the performance of their Members of Congress as dispassionately as possible.
Our goal was to make it simple to understand in a three step process.
- Here is a Member’s composite legislative score.
- Here is the make-up of his or her district.
- Here is their Madison Performance Index number, now you decided if your Member is failing to meet, exceeding or matching his or her district.
That’s it. Our hope is that voters nationwide will use it as a resource to engage their fellow voters. To that end, we have created the ability to share the MPI and each individual Member’s score through various social media platforms.
If you are a voter interested in turning this country around., use the MPI to do exactly that. Knowledge is power.
